Due to severe disability the doctor said it would be easier to just abort me

Before I was born, my parents found out I would be born with a severe disability and might not ever walk. The doctor they saw told them that it would be easier if they just got an abortion. By the grace of God, my parents picked a different story for my life. They CHOSE life.

I am alive today because my parents trusted the Lord and knew it was not up to them to decide if I lived or not. Although there is healing in having an abortion, I do not agree that a mother has the right to take away their child's life.

Jeremiah 1:5 says "Before I formed you in my womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."

I encourage anyone seeing this to be brave and courageous and to chose LIFE for their baby, because that's what he or she is. They are a life whether they are in the womb or not. I pray for each person affected by abortion and they would find healing and I pray that each person would make their story about choosing life.
