"In 2005 a baby boy in Manchester was born alive at 24 weeks after surviving three attempts to abort him. He is now a five-year-old schoolboy." 
 - This quote came at the end of an article in the UK's Telegraph.  The bulk of that article is about an Italian boy who was found alive by a hospital chaplain some 20 hours after he survived a botched abortion.

Read it here.

I know it's not just the mother in me that makes me appalled and deeply saddened by such stories.  But I can't imagine my life without my little ones and the joy they bring me.  It breaks my heart that the mothers of these babies can't / don't feel the same.


  1. this topic makes me so sad that whenever i hear/read about it I feel i have been punched in the stomach. It's devastating that this is happening all over the world and it is completely legal. Unbelievable.

  2. But what a coup for life! Despite all the tragedies and sadnesses that normally accompany abortions, God and life will find a way. This is a triumph, more than a tragedy.
