24 / 11 / 2011 - Horror: 32-week unborn twins killed after hospital accidentally aborts healthy twin
A 32-week set of twins were both aborted after staff at an Australian hospital initially killed the healthy twin by accident, and then also aborted the sick sibling after realizing their mistake, reports the Herald Sun.
The paper reports that the mother of the children was told that one of her twin children had a congenital heart defect that would require years of surgery, and that the child may not survive.

After she decided to have the child aborted, doctors then gave the wrong child the lethal injection.
When hospital staff realized the mistake, the woman reportedly underwent an emergency c-section, and the sick child was also aborted.
A friend of the woman told the Sun: “She went to the hospital with two babies and now she has none.”
“And she had the heartache of giving birth to her sick baby. She’s traumatised.”
A hospital spokeswoman said: “The Royal Women’s Hospital can confirm a distressing clinical accident occurred (on Tuesday).
“This is a terrible tragedy and the hospital is deeply sorry for the loss suffered by the patient and her family.”
