To the Editor: de Crespigny and Savulescu1 criticise legal and media attention given to the abortion of a 32-week fetus with suspected dwarfism in a case in which the expectant mother had become suicidal. At the same time, they appeal to populism to support legislative change in favour of easier access to late-term abortion.
