BABY BORN AT 5 MONTHS GESTATION SURVIVES
MAYWOOD, IL, Dec 3 (LSN) – Shel’be Pruitt, a child born a little over 20 weeks after her conception was released from hospital Saturday to go home with her overjoyed parents. In a story last Sunday covering the happy occasion, the Chicago Sun-Times noted that “A Canadian infant born 128 days early in 1987” is the world record holder for the most premature baby to survive. Ironically the Canadian Vancouver General Hospital admitted just yesterday to aborting babies older than this.
