Pressure To Abort After Diagnosis

Instead of writing this week there are two stories I would like to share with you surrounding misdiagnosis of the child's health condition while in utero. These misdiagnosis that have lead to women being faced with a difficult choice.

What I would like to point out is that doctors are often wrong when diagnosing babies in the womb and many children are missing today because of this diagnosis followed by pressure to abort. Here are just two stories showing the struggle many parents face today:

A seven month pre-born baby in Vietnam was diagnosed by ultrasound as having a disability and was aborted. When family went to barry the aborted child she was still alive: story on Life News.

In 1994 a doctor told parents that their child was at high risk of having a blood disorder which both parents carried and advised them to abort. The little girl is now getting ready to graduate high school: Alyssa shares her story.

For the Dignity of the Born and Unborn,

Hmm, I understand the point of there always being hope that a child diagnosed in utero will actually be born healthy, but I think this article (albeit unintentionally, I'm sure) gives the impression that the abortions of these children would have been more tragic because they didn't have the health condition/disability orignially diagnosed.
For me, the abortion of any child is a tragedy, regardless of disability or any other factor.
