Dead Baby Walking! PraiseGod!


Jodie Percival, 25 was eight weeks pregnant when she made the hardest decision of her life, to abort her baby. The reason was she was told the baby was going to have multicystic dysplastic kidney – an illness where cysts form on an unborn baby's kidneys. Her first son had died from this disease and her second suffered with it, so she made the decision to abort. In her own words;
"Deciding to terminate at eight weeks was just utterly horrible but I couldn't cope with the anguish of losing another baby."

Some time after the abortion she felt movement, went to the doctor and found out she was nineteen weeks pregnant, as the abortion was botched. Her first move was to call and complain, which was met with quick apologies from the medical field. But then the amazing happened, she decided to carry the baby to term. Born three weeks premature at 6 pounds and 3 ounces, baby Finley has damage to only one kidney and doctors are sure he will lead a normal life.

A great reminder that the womb is Gods handiwork and not to be tampered with. How many a woman has made the fateful decision to abort a child based on a medical condition possibility? Jodie Percival was spared that act and shown great mercy by God. To Him be the glory for the miracle of birth, and may His people fight to see that RIGHT given to all in the womb!
