If you knew your child would be severely retarded and would die by the age of five, would you decide to have an abortion?
Absolutely not. If it’s God’s will for me to have a child with any kind of handicap, whatever the case may be, then it’s for a reason. If an abortion was chosen as a viable option, it’s hard to tell what we would miss out on for the five years that we get to have that child in our lives.
