Amanda Solomon never thought she could get pregnant after undergoing endometrial ablation, a procedure that would likely leave her sterile.
But she’d survived cancer and rejoiced over her three healthy children.
So, a positive pregnancy test shocked her and her doctors, but it appeared a miscarriage resolved the situation. Yet within weeks another pregnancy test showed that she was still pregnant. The best explanation is that she had miscarried a twin. Yet, rather than stepping up help Amanda sort through what ought to happen next, the doctor removed all hope and recommended abortion, waiting for an answer on the spot.
Hearing my doctor say: “I’m sorry, but you really should consider terminating this pregnancy. There are no good outcomes from pregnancies like yours” was a knife to my heart.
Amanda is a vocal pro-life advocate, and to find herself in the very circumstance used to justify legal abortion after 20 weeks was ironic to say the least.
Her story illustrates several important truths:
- Often what is called a diagnosis, is instead a judgment
- Where one doctor sees a hopeless case, another may be willing to work to protect both mother and child
- Even if pregnancy is truly life-threatening, ethics demand physicians give the children every chance
- Faith can move mountains
