During her 24-week pregnancy scan, Sarah Hagan says medics told her the child would have “no hope of survival”.
The Sunderland mum went through the agony of taking tablets to abort her unborn son, only to be then told doctors were going to try and deliver her baby.
Sarah, 38, of Farringdon, said: “It breaks my heart every day when I look at my son and think how I almost got rid of him.”
From the Sunderland Echo.
They said her baby’s brain had not formed properly, that he was “brain dead,” and would be born with only one eye, and she must have an abortion. She took the abortion tablets, but the baby survived, so they had to deliver him (very, very early). I hope you click through and look at the picture of that cute little “one-eyed brain-dead” baby.
Abortion is a horrible thing, destroying a precious life, shedding innocent blood. But our society sees it as simply removing unwanted tissue, so medical professionals recommend it casually, even when there is not enough evidence to prove their assertions.
These situations are very, very difficult. Many babies do die in the womb. But no one should be quick to believe a doctor who recommends an abortion. Too many of them don’t place the value on that tiny life that they should.
Every child is a miracle, but wee Aaron is a double-miracle (and very, very cute!) — he survived doctors who were careless about life and recommended his death.
(Is anyone surprised that the BBC website hasn’t covered this? They often ignore stories that might challenge people to think rightly on morality. If a story can be used to portray abortion restrictions as bad, it gets banner headlines, but if it would challenge people to think twice about getting an abortion, it doesn’t see the light of day.)
