Using Guilt to Push Abortion

We have lots of good doctors, yet parents face an alarming rate of medical professionals pushing abortion – sometimes in the cruelest ways.  Mary and Ryan Robeson were told their daughter, Arianna had serious health conditions.  Doctors painted a horrific and grim picture, and recommended abortion at her 20-week ultrasound.  Just after they saw Arianna’s face, watched her move, listened to her heartbeat, and counted all her fingers and toes.  This couple was offered abortion six times.  After the second no, a nurse said, “Some women just really struggle with the idea of watching their children suffer.”  She put a guilt trip on mom for rejecting abortion, even with no evidence the baby was feeling pain.  In the end, the heart conditions healed on their own and a surgery took care of the other issue.
