A child with half her brain missing who has baffled scientists by enjoying a full life is being cited as an example of why babies with abnormalities should not be aborted. The ten-year-old German girl has surprised doctors by the way in which her remaining brain has rewired itself to enable her to function almost normally. Her existing hemisphere has even adapted to create nearly complete eyesight despite the fact she has only one good eye. The right side of her brain and her eye stopped developing when the girl was only seven weeks old in the womb. As in-utero scanning is increasingly being used to identify and abort babies with disabilities, pro-life supporters are angered that abortion has become a tool for eugenics.
