Over the years I have heard several stories of women who were advised by medical personnel to abort their children because medical tests appeared to indicate that something was seriously wrong with the unborn child only to discover after birth that the child is normal.
Another such story has been posted on the LifeNews website.
In this particular story, the mother steadfastly continued the pregnancy in the face of not only the pressure to abort but also the loss of her father.
She was rewarded with a normal, healthy baby girl.
Was it a miracle? Was it incorrect test interpretation? Did the tests themselves fail somehow?
One cannot help but wonder how many healthy children have been killed in the womb due to a false diagnosis by doctors who pressed the mother into abortion.
If we always give life a chance, this problem will not occur.
We must persist in this culture of life, even when medical professionals forcefully counsel otherwise.
