A resident of the U.S. state of Tennessee decided to have a baby with a fatal defect, to donate his organs. It is reported KRDO.
On the 18th week of pregnancy Krista Davis (Bradford Davis) learned that her future child was found anencephaly — malformation of the fetus, which may not have large hemispheres of the brain and bones of the cranial vault. As a rule, children with anencephaly live no longer than 30 minutes.
Davis refused abortion to get the baby and give his organs to those in need. The woman gave birth to a girl weighing 2.72 kg. After a week the baby died. Her heart valves were transplanted to sick children, while light given to researchers who are looking for methods to prevent anencephaly.
In 2017, it was reported that the bodies who sacrificed a dying 13-year-old girl from Britain saved the lives of eight. The cause of death was rupture of the aneurysm vessel in the brain.
