It is a rather strange feeling seeing your own blog featured on the papers. Sort of a nauseating sweetness to it...... strange.
Anyhow, I wish to thank Sunday Times for their free publicity. But I will not since they did not mention Johnny (read this) whom I have been hoping to sell for a long time. Damn! The publicity would have helped! Now I can only take Andrew's suggestion, go paste notices in the Medicine Library and hope that the little ones take the bait.
Apparently I had also effectively stripped away the prestige of being a doctor! Oh dear, sorry guys!!
P.S. Also need to clarify some things here.
1. The article by Ms Yeo seemed to imply that all abortions are done this way. Nah... those less than 14 weeks or so can be aborted via Dilation and Curettage (D&C), Suction Aspiration etc. For these abortions, pictures are not taken! Samples may still be taken though.
2. For babies aborted via MTTP, samples are NOT always taken from the baby. In cases where the baby died in-utero, samples would be taken so as to identify whether the baby suffered from any genetic diseases. This would help to identify the cause of death and to provide the necessary genetic counselling if conditions are identified.
