Born at 23 weeks, smallest surviving premature baby discharged from hospital

She’s the smallest newborn to ever survive.

Born from an emergency c-section in December, the little girl, nicknamed Saybie, was born at just 23 weeks. This week, the baby was discharged from the hospital.

When she was born, Saybie weighed just 8.6 ounces.

Not 8 pounds, 6 ounces. That would have been a healthy, above average birth weight.

Saybie weighed 8.6 ounces! About the weight of a juice box. Doctors knew she was going to be small, but when Saybie was born, even they were surprised.

This week, the New York legislature voted 38-24 to expand the state’s abortion laws. Those in attendance gave this measure a standing ovation. Also this week, new Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker vowed to make the Land of Lincoln the most progressive state on abortion laws in America. States are competing for how radical they can be on abortion laws. Worldwide there were 41 million abortions last year.

In 1996, President Bill Clinton said that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare.”

And now, it is celebrated.
