Fatal Advice Rejected

It’s alarming how many doctors will suggest, pressure or even coerce women into having an abortion at the first evidence of a health problem with the unborn baby.  During a House hearing on state abortion laws, Congressman Chip Roy from Texas shined light on this issue.  He told the story of how one of his staffers, Jonah was targeted for abortion.  He and his twin brother were diagnosed with cystic fibrosis during a pregnancy checkup.  It affects the lungs and digestive system and can be fatal.  Jonah’s parents were quick to say no and walked out.  The twins, said Congressman Roy, “would grow up to become excellent men.”  Thankfully, Jonah and his brother had parents who stood up to the doctor, but think of all those who don’t.
