Anonymous asked: I have a friend with crohn's disease who became pregnant with twins while using birth control. She had to stop taking the meds that helped her stay alive to keep those fetuses alive. About a month or so into her pregnancy one of the fetuses were dying, and the other one was in bad health, both were killing her, along side her disease her body couldn't handle the pregnancy and if she kept going, she would have died, trying to keep a fetus alive, so she had an abortion. Do you find that wrong?
I do find this wrong. I find it wrong that such a wonderful women had to choose between her life, and her love for her two unborn children. ((I am taking that it was this that had made her decide to try and save her children, though you said she was on birth control, so I am partly confused)) I find it wrong that she had to suffer from this disease, and I find it wrong that her two children died, and had to, to save her own life.
The situation was wrong. I commend her for trying so hard to save her children, and her strength that lasted her so long. The decision to quit taking medication, life saving medication, is not an easy one, nor is it a safe one.
If you mean to ask us if the decision she had made was wrong, then what are you expecting? That we would say yes, the hopeless battle that had already ended one life, and would certainty end two more, should of been continued? Most, if not all, of us agree, or at least understand, that when the mother’s life is at stake, abortion is reasonable. It’s not the same as putting the mother’s life above the child’s, but realizing that without an abortion, you would end with both the mother and the child gone. It’s sacrificing one life to make sure both don’t end.
To say that yes, the decision was wrong, and the mother should of died with her children wouldn’t be very pro-life what so ever, being pro-life is more than just supporting human rights for the unborn children, but supporting life, and it’s rights, to everyone.
