Woman with dead fetus in uterus begs doctors to help
HATO MAYOR, Dominican Republic.- A woman complained Friday that she has been carrying a dead fetus in her uterus for four days but has been refused treatment in the local hospital.
Sileni Alvarez said fears dying from infection since two checkups conducted in the Leopoldo Martinez hospital reveal that the fetus has been decomposing. “They don’t pay any attention to me and I’m afraid of dying and leaving two children orphaned.”
And despite that the young woman showed sonic tests that certify the fetus’ death and begged the doctors not to let her die, she has yet to be hospitalized, reports newspaper El Nuevo Diario.
