Doctors Reunite with Patients They Treated Inside the Womb

Fetal surgeons save lives:

Two-year-old Leyna Gonzalez was once a fetus with a life-threatening tumor growing from her mouth. She, like many others, was saved by the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center doctors after other experts suggested her mother terminate the pregnancy.

I wish Leyna could some day confront the "experts" who suggested she be terminated. What would they have to say?

Leyna's mother says to the surgeon: you saved my daughter's life.

How could it have been her life when she wasn't a person yet? Her person didn't exist. There was no Leyna. That life wasn't hers to save. Right?
