Sir: Ms S had over 30 weeks in which to make a decision about her, and her unborn child's, future. Sad as it seems to some of us, she could have decided to terminate the pregnancy. However, she chose not to do so.

She should not then be able to decide at a much later date to endanger the baby's life. Mothers (and I include pregnant women in that category) have responsibilities towards their children and in this sort of case it is right and proper that someone stands up for a child whose mother is unable or unwilling to fulfil her responsibilities.
