Mathew Thomas Roberts-Parks is just 20 weeks old. He was born at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital 27 weeks after he had been conceived. Mathew's mum, Marion tells me that another little baby was born at the same time in the same hospital just 22 weeks after conception.
Soon after returning home, Mathew was admitted to the Royal Liverpool Children's Hospital at Alder Hey for two hernia operations. Which is why his family had arranged the fund raising coffee morning in Welshpool earlier this week, when this photograph was taken. He was downing his bottle as we were supping our coffee, and everyone could see just what a wonderful little human being Mathew is. I have always been very opposed to the legal limit for abortions being more than 20 weeks.
