I received this news item in my inbox, with the very subject heading I’ve used here.
A pregnant woman was gravely injured and her unborn child killed after a traffic accident in Surrey Sunday afternoon. It happened at 4 p.m. at 132nd and 96th Avenue when a van and a smaller car with five people inside crashed in the intersection.
Made me suddenly sad, actually. Because we lose so many unborn babies but we only care about 0.01 per cent of the time. Also, my heart goes out to this mother, who has lost her child. Sad, just sad, all round.by
