Injection to fetus kills mother, other twin diagnosed with Down syndrome

World Bulletin / News Desk

A woman in the southern province of Adana died on Monday along with her unborn twins after doctors carried out a procedure to end the life of one of the fetuses she was carrying which had been diagnosed with Down syndrome.

The incident took place at a hospital where Hatice Demet Buzpınar and Eren Buzpınar were going for regular checkups during Hatice Demet Buzpınar's pregnancy. At the end of a routine test conducted by the hospital to determine whether the twins were suffering from any medical condition, Buzpınar's doctor informed them that one of the twins had Down syndrome and that they could carry out a procedure in which the fetus was given an injection which would stop the growth of the fetus in the mother's womb. The couple gave permission for the procedure, which took place on Feb. 13.

Two days later, Buzpınar began experiencing abdominal pain. The woman was taken back to the same hospital, where she stayed for two days. The doctors decided to remove Buzpınar's uterus and the fetuses inside it. The surgery did not go as planned and the woman was rushed to intensive care, where she later died from a heart attack.

Buzpınar's family has filed a criminal complaint against the hospital. The Adana Public Prosecutor's Office is investigating the incident. The two fetuses and the body of Hatice Demet Buzpınar were taken to the Council of Forensic Medicine (ATK) for an autopsy.

Eren Buzpınar told reporters he believes the doctors must have made a wrong diagnosis. The doctors, however, say they informed the family of the details of Buzpınar's pregnancy and that the couple was aware of the risks involved in the treatment they agreed to.

Yet another woman willing to kill her child because he/she isn't perfect and dying from it. Abortion hitmen wouldn't have a job if these women didn't make a demand for it.

I hate that this woman lost her life, but sometimes when you choose to do a bad thing, bad things end up happening to you. I can't imagine how anyone can even consider the thought of murdering their own flesh and blood offspring. Your own unborn baby...even if it DOES have Down Syndrome. Every child deserves it's own life, the only life they will EVER have the chance to live. SICK.

As the mother of a beautiful 5 year old daughter with Down syndrome I have no sympathy for this woman. Sounds like karma to me. She chose to urder her "imperfect" child and lost her life in the process. Sounds fair.

wow! well this was truly a tragic story! 3 people died, the mother and her twins. I feel so bad for the husband! I will be keeping him in my prayers. Hopefully he will learn something from this experience and use it to help others not make the same mistakes!

No one would be dead had they loved their child and not decided to murder it for having an extra chromosome. She would be alive, have two beautiful children on the way.
