Woman self aborts at 30 wks

Unborn baby at 30 weeksA woman in the UK has been jailed for 8 years for performing an abortion on herself when her unborn baby was 29 weeks and 5 days  (ninemsn 18/09/2012). Justice Cooke stated "The child in the womb was so near to birth, in my judgment all right-thinking people would think this offence more serious than unintentional manslaughter".

At 30 weeks pregnant, her baby boy would have weighed almost 1.4 kg and be 40 cm long.

He would have had a 95 percent chance of survival if born prematurely at this date.  
In Victoria an abortion at 30 weeks is perfectly legal. The unborn have no legal protection up until birth.
