Ah, what a difference two days make. In this case, it spells the difference between life and death.
The doctors would rather follow "national guidelines" that spells it so. The guidelines probably determined that a baby below 22 weeks is not a human being and therefore not entitled to any medical care whatsoever, despite the pleadings of the mother. A life is at stake but they have to be rigid with the guidelines. Never mind if that "thing" was breathing, had a strong heartbeat, and was moving its arms and legs. No, it can't be human. It's two days short.
