perinatal-hospiceWashington, DC – A new policy paper released yesterday by the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) features Byron Calhoun, M.D., a perinatologist and professor at West Virginia University-Charleston, addressing the subject of care and treatment for unborn children diagnosed with genetic disorders. “The Perinatal Hospice: Allowing Parents to be Parents,” the first in-depth paper released by the education and research arm of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, offers research on the effects and benefits of perinatal hospice.

“Dr. Calhoun is a pioneer in the recent field of perinatal hospice, which takes principles from end-of-life hospice and applies them to the care of mother, child and family upon diagnosis of a terminal fetal abnormality,” said Chuck Donovan, president of the Charlotte Lozier Institute. “Perinatal hospice offers a humane and caring option for parents and their unborn child, rather than just abandoning them to abortion.”

Dr. Calhoun’s paper for the Lozier Institute is available here.

Last week, Dr. Calhoun testified before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution on the subject of perinatal hospice.  The subcommittee examined the current legal regime in the nation’s capital that allows abortion, for any reason, up to and beyond viability to the moment of birth.  The subcommittee also heard testimony on proposed legislation to ban abortion in the District of Columbia after the fetus has reached 20 weeks gestation, based on their ability to feel pain at that point. Dr. Calhoun’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution is available here.

The Charlotte Lozier Institute was launched in 2011 as the education and research arm of Susan B. Anthony List. The CLI is a hub for research and public policy analysis on some of the most pressing issues facing the United States and nations around the world. The CLI website features commentaries, reviews and blog posts by an array of policy experts and scholars whose work covers statistics, medicine, bioethics, health care and law.
