A heartbreaking report on premature newborns born to war-traumatized mothers in an Idlib hospital: it’s common for the obtuse to ask ‘why do women get pregnant in a war zone, if they are refugees, if they are poor’? The question is unworthy of an answer. But if one must respond, it is because even in the worst of circumstances men & women make love & want children together. The real question should be, ‘why are they being bombed, denied asylum, denied access to prenatal & natal care’?
