Amillia, the tiny miracle baby, goes home

Amillia Taylor weighed just 10oz at birth and was not expected to survive. However The Times at reported that the world’s most premature living baby, born the length of a ballpoint pen at 21 weeks and six days, is to be allowed home from a Florida hospital.

Does this mean that the time limits for permitting abortion in the United Kingdom in the Abortion Act 1967 need to be re-considered ?

Does this mean also that The Nuffield Council on Bioethics which published a report Critical Care Decisions in Fetal and Neonatal Medicine in November 2006 may have to reconsider its guidelines ? See
