In response to Rosalind Woodward concerning legalized abortion: She cites some examples of family concerns, but what would she or others who choose to kill a baby think of this one? A 39-year-old homeschool mom is pregnant with child No. 8, and in her sixth month of pregnancy, on a Sunday night, she has a brain aneurysm (actually, an AVM). She quits breathing at 11 p.m. Her husband, through CPR, is able to keep her breathing until local EMTs respond to a 911 call.
Should the baby be saved amidst this time? If she survives, it will not be an easy road, and with seven other children, that will be tough. Dr. Sullivan at Gundersen Lutheran in La Crosse does emergency surgery to save her life. Twenty-four hours later, Dr. McDonnel and his team carefully spend a day to repair the problem. Now to recover and gain strength and the ability to walk and such again. Days turn into weeks, and with God’s help, and love and support from family, friends and hospital workers, she comes home 6 ½ weeks later, on her 40thbirthday. Six weeks later, she gives birth to a healthy baby boy.
That woman is my wife, Tammy, and that baby is my son, James, now 18 ½ years old. Abortion was not an option; it is a poor option for any situation, and, sadly, it’s a big money-making operation for those who perform them. An unborn child’s heart begins to beat at about four weeks after conception; if it ever stops, life ends.
If someone is in a crisis pregnancy, please call me, and I and a lot of others will do what we can to help them out and trust God to do what only He can do as well. If you have an unwanted baby or child, you can call me at (608) 337-4295, and we will do what we can to find a solution.
But please don’t keep killing unborn children. You must read Norma McCorvey’s book “Won by Love.” If abortion is a good option, why must it be supported by lie after lie?
