This is great news. Keep those prayers coming. This family needs them.
The Blaze reports:
When doctors told Rep. Jamie Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.) that her unborn child was suffering from a normally fatal kidney condition, she was also advised that abortion was one of her options.I wonder how many babies were aborted that might have lived after this diagnosis.
However, the pro-life Republican refused to abort her child.
On Monday, Beutler announced that she had given birth to a baby girl, who she called a “miracle.”
She first learned that her unborn child was suffering from Potter’s Syndrome, a usually fatal condition that affects kidney development during pregnancy, earlier this year. Beutler’s office announced in a statement that the baby, Abigail, “is considered by her doctors to likely be the first baby to survive a diagnosis previously considered fatal.”
According to the Washington Examiner’s Tim Mak, the “child is currently stable, but required immediate dialysis due to a lack of functioning kidneys.”
“The options we were offered were termination or ‘expectant management,’ that is, waiting for [the baby] to die. Instead, we chose to pray earnestly for a miracle. She is every bit a miracle,” the GOP congresswoman and her husband said in a statement.
