When I was 19 weeks pregnant My daughter was diagnosed with CCAM ( congenital cystic malformation of her left lung). I was advised to have an abortion . I was told that she would never make to full term. That I would have to have her taken out of me. Then they would take her lung out and put her back in me. That never happened then I was told she would develope hydrops ( fluid around her heart) that never happened. I had two weeks to decide to aboard my baby my husband said god gave us her and god will give us the strenght to deal with what ever comes our way! Our decision was final! We would have our daughter thank god for our making the right decision our daughter was born. She was not rushed to surgery to remove her lung she was a miracle. she came home with us four days latter! Her daddy passed away when she was only two.Now she is all I have she did under go surgery last summer she only had 1/4 th of her lung removed ! She is a competiave gymnast and was back in the gym 3 weeks after surgery! Sometimes these doctors try to play god! I feel they should have to show that photo to the families before they play god and tell some one to have an abortion!!!
What a great story! God's blessings on you and your daughter.
Bless you and your little girl.
The medical community always errs on the side of abortion for liability reasons. There is the "wrongful birth" concept in law, in which the child can sue for having been born. There is no "wrongful abortion" to counterbalance it - since once the baby is aborted she cannot sue.
Your little gymnist was, in their eyes, just a number, a potential suer. In recommending abortion they were looking out for #1: themselves.
