Here’s a story that is worth reading.
During her pregnancy, the baby was diagnosed with severe fetal anomalies, and the mother was counseled to abort. She declined. She had several more appointments and appointments with various doctors, and they all counseled her to abort, saying the baby had no chance and could not live — not with the anomalies he had.
They would not perform a C-section, because the baby could not live. They would not even monitor the baby during labor, because they knew the baby could not live, and they didn’t want the mother to be distressed by hearing erratic fetal heart-tones, fetal distress, or the baby’s heart stop beating.
They were wrong.
