(The Christian Institute)— A mother has shared how she refused to have an abortion even though doctors offered it ten times after diagnosing her baby with a disability.
Natalie Halson explained that doctors persistently pressured her to have an abortion because of baby Mirabelle’s diagnosis of spina bifida — a condition where the spine does not develop properly.
Spina bifida affects the nervous system and can cause paralysis, but surgery can significantly alleviate the various effects, including with in-womb surgery.
Natalie was told over the phone that her baby had the condition. She said doctors “made out like an abortion was my only option and explained that if I went ahead with the pregnancy my baby would be wheelchair bound and have no quality of life.”
