Parents Reject Abortion of Baby Born With No Eyes, Mom Says “We Have No Regrets”
After a routine ultrasound scan showed mother Danielle Davis that her unborn baby Daisy had a cyst on her brain, doctors encouraged her to have an abortion. Thankfully she chose life and refused to take her baby’s life over a possible disability.
When Daisy was born, she was born with a condition known as Anopthalmia, meaning a lack of eyes. She will never be able to see and may eventually be fitted with cosmetic glass eyes. Despite her condition and physical appearance, Danielle says her daughter is “gorgeous.” And in an interview, Daniella says she has no regrets about her and her husband’s decision not to have an abortion.
Davis, a care worker from Cwmbran, South Wales, said: “It was a shock – we had never heard of it before and neither had any of our friends or family. People didn’t really know what to say when we told them.”
“But she is our gorgeous baby and we have no regrets about turning down a termination. We want to give Daisy as normal a life as possible and give her the same opportunities as other children,” she said.
