A group of Chinese doctors has published a proposal for killing unwanted unborn twins or triplets by microwaving them.

Jialei Xi, Ziyi Cheng, Tianchen Wu, and other authors plan to use microwaves to selectively destroy one of two or more unborn babies sharing a placenta, and they published their protocol in the British Medical Journal on August 13. Their article is called “Microwave ablation [i.e. destruction] versus radiofrequency ablation for the treatment of severe complicated monochorionic pregnancies in China protocol for a pilot randomised controlled trial.”

The doctors state that “complicated monochorionic [i.e. placenta-sharing] twin pregnancies” are “associated” with illness and death, and that some of them are so “severe” that one of the babies must be killed so that the other might live.

“Complicated monochorionic twin pregnancies are often associated with high perinatal morbidity and mortality, some of which are severe enough to require a gestational reduction surgery to improve fetal survival and reduce disabilities,” they wrote.

“Gestational reduction surgery” means killing one or more infants in a multiple pregnancy….

The Chinese researchers, who do not refer to any chance to save all the babies in a difficult multiple pregnancy, say that the most common procedure to kill one baby while attempting to leave the other unharmed is “radiofrequency ablation.” This is a procedure in which heat from radio waves is used to cauterize human tissue, often to stop nerves from signaling pain to the brain or to kill small tumors. As an abortion method, a needle is inserted in the twin, and an electrical current passes through it, essentially boiling the fetus alive.

These doctors, however, would like to study the use of “microwave ablation” to kill the unwanted child, saying that it is “reported to be better” than radiofrequency abortion….

“This study was approved by the ethical review committee of the Peking University Third Hospital (Beijing, China),” they assure their readers.

The project seems to be ongoing. The Peking University study, entitled “Microwave Ablation vs Radiofrequency Ablation in the Management of Complicated Monochorionic Pregnancies” was recorded by the U.S. National Library of Medicine in June 2019. It was to begin in mid-July 2019, and it was to end in November 2020.
