The abortion was carried out at Perth Royal Infirmary in January 2001 and Miss Dow was told that no live material was visible in her uterus.
She was then given a contraceptive injection and advised that it could induce side effects of weight gain and an erratic menstrual cycle.
Miss Dow claims she thought the injection was to blame for her subsequent increase in weight and the cessation of her periods.
But she returned to her doctor and was advised that one of the foetuses had survived and was seven weeks from full term.
So let me get this straight, she's trying to say she never once felt the baby move? I don't know about you but my babies were flipping around like they were on a trampoline well before I got to that point. She didn't notice the baby moving? Not once? I find it highly unlikely. It's not like she didn't know she was having twins as is evidenced by the following quote, so why not follow up with the doctors sooner than that?
She added: "The hospital knew it was twins when I went for the termination so they should have checked even more carefully before sending me home."
The entire situation is insane and saddens me greatly. Praise God the child survived, and I pray the Lord's hand would continue to rest upon and protect this child as she grows up.
