“People are talking about the medical necessity of abortion to save the mother’s life. I was one of those mothers.
I was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer that was cutting off my airway at 20 weeks of pregnancy.
I will never forget when the first doctor, an oncologist, mentioned abortion.
We had gone thru years of infertility to get pregnant.
I knew I would rather die and give birth.
Then I met with another doctor who listed all of the problems the baby would have if I did not terminate.
I stood my ground and refused.
He said, “That is ok. The baby will probably spontaneously abort anyway.”
I searched and found good doctors that supported me, and I gave birth to a healthy baby at 34 weeks.
I will be celebrating 10 years cancer free in May. I have a healthy, beautiful, bright, precious 10 year old daughter who is a living reminder that doctors do not know everything.”
Miraculously this was ten years ago. Next month this courageous woman be celebrating 10 years cancer free and also the 10th birthday of her beautiful daughter.
