Astonishing

*****Yes, this is a real article, it was posted first on foxnews.com, but I went to the original to get the picture. It's an English article, UK/NZ/Australia all spell agonising and organising with an "s" instead of a "z".*****

You have got to be kidding me.

Read this.

Words escape me.

  2. I wonder if a twin was aborted.

    I can't type what I feel about this, but it's not good.

  3. Is this article real? Because they spell "apologised" instead of "apologized" and "agonising" instead of "agonizing". Kind of strange for a legit article.

    Either way, that infuriates me!! I don't understand how people consider abortion. I really don't. Thank GOD that YOU are amazing and strong and chose to give your baby LIFE!! I pray that there are more people like you!!

  4. That is truly disgusting. And the fact that she's going out into the media and talking about this. Her little boy is going to read that someday and know he wasn't wanted. Thats awful.

  5. It's heartbreaking to read a story like that - someone willing to throw a life away over a "what if".

    Susie, I imagine this must have totally floored you.

    Praying for you today and always!!

  6. What a (not even sure what word to put here) article. How horrible she didn't want her child because of a kidney issue, even with 2 previous children who had it/have it...a miracle could have happened where he may have been born perfectly healthy, but the biggest miracle is his survival. I wonder what issues the baby will have, if any, knowing his life wasn't valued by his mom enough that she tried to abort him. What a sad story...at least I guess it has a happy ending.

  7. I am with you Susie but words don't escape me really. If I were to get started on this one, I wouldn't be able to stop. I will say that this little man has a mission in this life. Sounds like he and Jesus have plans:) I hope you are doing good as you can and have a wonderful weekend.
    Thinking about you guys every day and ask the Lord to bless you.

    Love, Laurie in Ca.

    Are you kidding me? Where do I start??? Let's see...should we start with marriage...maybe? Three kids, no marriage? Then, of course, the abortion. Praise God it failed! He must have great plans for this child. I wonder...does this mom.....or anyone reading the article connect that an abortion kills a BABY? A sweet baby...a beautiful baby...

    You are right....other than to babble, words just fail.

  10. ?????? I don't even know what to say...I am just shocked. How is she supposed to look at this little boy and say "yeah, we tried to kill you but you survived!".

  11. Hrmmmmmm. I'm amazed, impressed, in awe and a little angry. In the grand scheme of things a polycystic kidney and/or dysplastic kidney isn't such a huge thing...at least it's not a DEATH SENTENCE like abortion is. Sounds like her one baby died from being born prematurely, not necessarily from the kidney problems. Besides, a kidney problem can be addressed...that's why we have two kidneys, dialysis, and transplants.

    It makes me a little nuts to hear about people terminating pregnancies because of birth defects being found in utero. First of all, those tests are often wrong as much as they're right. Secondly, you can have the most perfect test results on the planet and still end up with a baby with a birth defect...or 2 or 3 or a dozen like we did. Lastly, babies aren't like fruit at the grocery store - you don't get to pick through! ARGH!!!!

    Ugh. I don't know why this pisses me off. I guess it's because I know so several children - beautiful, wonderful children - running around with kidney defects. My kid is one of them. It angers me to no end to think of any of them being chucked out like a bad apple.

  12. I have been a long time reader but never commented until now. I have been so touched by your story with Joshua and admire your strength and faith. He truly was a miracle child and this world is richer for having had his wonderful little life in it.

    This article makes me sick.
    I wonder how many other aborted babies would have been born with few (if any) medical problems if they too, had 'survived' their abortions. How can any medical person tell for sure that a baby had a terminal defect until they are born? How many of them were wrong and will never know for sure since the baby was killed before it was born? And even if they are right, who are they and who are we to determine that that child should not have every opportunity to live as long as God allows??

    This is so incredibly sad - that now she is thrilled to have her child - the child she was angry had not been killed earlier. I wonder how this little boy will feel later on in life knowing his mother tried to kill him before he was born.

  15. #1] I never knew an abortion could fail. #2] I would have never had one. #3] More proof to me that God is in charge not us!

  16. It's a good thing that I ate before reading this article. I can't believe that this mother would share this story...her son will likely read it one day. I have no other words, I am too sick!

  17. I had to come back after reading the other comments and know I was safe to say one more thing:) If this mother is so worried about passing her kidney problems on to kids she just gets rid of (without success I might add) she should get her tubes tied instead of relying on the pill. She could be saving lives and maybe I would think that she had a brain too.
    Okay, I am done.

  18. Susie,
    That literally makes me ill...I am glad that she is happy (note the heavy sarcasm).

    I do hope that maybe this will change her mind and others minds on abortion. And I am glad that her baby lived. Imagine what plans God must have for that little boy :)

  19. i guess i just feel glad that I'm not in this woman's shoes having to make her decisions. it's easy for me to sit here and judge, but it's not my place to judge...

  20. I hope the child never finds out that his mom tried to kill him.

  21. How awful that article is. I will judge this woman because it is not my place, but that is something I could not ever even think about doing. Like it has been said in many comments on this post; God must have some big plans for that little guy!!!
