What do you think of this statement?

Premature babies who can't breathe on their own should not be given medical intervention.

It turns my stomach not only because my two amazing and healthy boys would not be here today if that were the case but because people out there actually think of this stuff.

  • I have never heard that before, but it certainly is one of the most stupid things I have ever heard!

  • We know this intervention for a reason. We were given the knowledge to step in and help these infants for a reason so we need to use it. That is like saying someone who is in an accident shouldn't be given CPR. RIDICULOUS.

  • My niece and nephew wouldn't be here if some fool had thought that was true.

  • There is a dummy in every corner of this earth i tell you. My son could breath on his own but he needed surgery when he was born, afterwards he needed oxygen for a couple of days. Whats next? even someone who just had surgery shouldn't be given oxygen. If i had to make a quote of my own, it would say " Grown people who don't use their brain before they come up with stupid ideas should be hung". Now how is that for the moron.
