21 week old survive

So I seen a article on yahoo that said a 21 week old twin survived. As a pro choice woman I really believe that this is a true miracle. There is a constant debate about when a fetus is viable outside of the womb. I really think it's important that pro choice folk be vocal when we see stories like this, because so many people mistake pro choice for pro abortion. When a pregnancy is this pre term the chances of survival are very slim so it really touched me to see a miracle like this happen.

The story didn't really give a background on whether the woman was high risk, but this was a multiple birth and multiple births are at risk of being preterm. However, no matter what the case was with the pregnancy this woman had the choice to continue with her pregnancy and give birth to twins. Although, only one of the twins was able to survive she had the autonomy to make the decision that was best for her!
