Nuffield consultation – CORE response
CORE submitted to the Nuffield Consultation on Premature Baby Decisions. We suggested in particular that much more should be invested in avoiding premature birth in the first place. The risks of multiple birth and prematurity following multiple embryo transfer have been addressed recently by the HFEA, but the correlation between significant prematurity in births subsequent to abortion has not yet been taken seriously by health authorities in the UK. We also highlighted the impossibility of establishing gestational age with any meaningful accuracy.
