Hospital Refuses to Help Dying Babies

Twin preemie newborn boys died while staff at Riverside Methodist Hospital (Columbus, OH) refused to assist them. The boys’ mother, Amanda, had been told they would be stillborn or breathe only for a moment, but both were born alive. One breathed and cried for two and a half hours while Amanda pleaded for help and Riverside staff stood by.
