Fighting Your Healthcare Provider… for Life

Fighting Your Healthcare Provider… for Life

It’s a slippery slope.

Abortion is acceptable… only if the mother’s life is in danger.

Abortion is acceptable… only if the unborn child is unlikely to survive.

Abortion is acceptable… only if the unborn child has a health condition.

Abortion is acceptable….

We have heard the stories before: a pregnant woman is advised by her doctor to abort her child because–well, pick a reason: her life is in danger, the child’s life isn’t “viable,” the pregnancy is complicated.

In our pro-life world, the stories often end with, “And now that child is 20 years old!”

It’s a story of victory. The mother chose to continue her pregnancy, and that decision is vindicated by her own continued health, and the health of that child.

But let’s take a moment to consider the strangeness of the situation–the fact that a healthcare provider could suggest the termination of a patient’s life. Whatever happened to “First, do no harm?”

We’d like to share with you this video created by Live Action that demonstrates the courage parents need to exhibit in the face of their very own doctors.

Let us pray for the healthcare profession. Let us pray for parents. And let us pray for an end to abortion in our world!
