anonymous:

I am a big advocate for the pro-life movement and really appreciate what you do & thought you might want to hear my story. Before I was born, doctors highly recommended terminating me, saying that I would be born without limbs, extremely deformed and severely mentally handicapped. However, lucky for me, my parents went through with it. I am now 19 & perfectly healthy and normal looking (with all my limbs) and attending a university. Hopefully this story will change someone’s perspective on abortion.

Some doctors place the value of their medical license above the value of human life. Not all doctors think this way, but many will err on the side of advising a mother to abort instead of risking telling the mother to take a chance on an unlikely outcome. Advising a mother to kill a child that may be deformed insulates the doctor from wrongful birth lawsuits.

I want you to personally thank your parents on my behalf for their courage and willingness to love you no matter how you would have entered this world.

Thank you for sharing your story and I am so glad that you are healthy and happy. And even if you had been born without all of your limbs, I would still love you as a fellow human being. You would be just as valuable and just as beautiful.
