World’s first surviving septuplets turn 16

(The McCaughey family – Kenny and wife Bobbi with Kenny, Kelsey, Natalie, Brandon, Alexis, Nathan and Joel McCaughey, and big sister Mikayla)

While septuplets had previously been delivered, none had lived beyond a few weeks. So the McCaugheys’ doctors suggested they undergo ‘selective reduction’ – in which several of the fetuses are aborted so the others have a better chance at being healthy. But the couple are devout Baptists and opposed to abortion so did not even consider the procedure.
