I just edited my post above as I misquoted - it wasn't 14 live births in a year, that was across a number of years. They are recorded as 20+ weeks gestation, with at least one being over 26 weeks.
Just found a horrific account of a baby in Darwin which survived for 80 minutes!
Now I'M wanting to bury my head in the sand...
I think on this topic posters should be mindful that it could be distressing for women who have had to choose late term abortions for medical reasons, or have gone into premature labour before 24 weeks and lost babies. This is quite a sensitive topic for a lot of women.

No offence is intended by my post, especially to anyone who has experienced an abortion. I also reiterate that I don't label myself as pro-life or pro-choice.
