Greetings Lifenews.com reader!
About four years ago my wife and I were informed at the 20 week ultrasound that our daughter had spina bifida. We were given the ‘choice’ to ‘terminate.’ We emphatically declined.
My wife and I were already pro-life. However, with our daughter nearly three years old now, the joy she brings into our family is set against the sorrow we feel when we realize that 70, 80, and maybe 90% of all children diagnosed with a birth defect are aborted. It has become part of my mission to help defend life by persuading people that Life is still worth protecting even when the child is disabled.
