A chemical pregnancy may be invisible to onlookers, but the hopes associated with having a child require little to take root, and when they are cut down, it can feel devastating.
Two premature babies were born in New York City this summer, at similar ages. One was abandoned in a park, the other killed in a late-term abortion.
