Baby Miraculously Survives Abortion, Expected to Live 'Normal' Life

    A mother who decided to abort her son because he may have inherited a life-threatening kidney condition is overjoyed that he survived the procedure.

    Jodie Percival of Nottinghamshire, England, said she and her fiancee made the decision to abort baby Finley when she was eight weeks pregnant.


    Percival's first son Thane died of multicystic dysplastic kidneys — which causes cysts to grow on the kidneys of an unborn baby — and her second child Lewis was born with serious kidney damage and currently has just one kidney, the Daily Mail reported.

    "I was on the (birth control pill) when I became pregnant," Percival, 25, said. "Deciding to terminate at eight weeks was just utterly horrible but I couldn't cope with the anguish of losing another baby."


    A short time after the abortion, Percival felt a fluttering in her stomach. She went to the doctor for a scan and discovered she was 19 weeks pregnant.



    "I couldn't believe it,' Percival said. "This was the baby I thought I'd terminated. At first I was angry that this was happening to us, that the procedure had failed. I wrote to the hospital, I couldn't believe that they had let me down like this.


    "They wrote back and apologized and said it was very rare," she added.
    Another scan a week later confirmed the baby also had kidney problems, but doctors told the couple the baby was likely to survive, so they decided he deserved another chance at life.


    In November, Finley was born three weeks premature. He had minor kidney damage but is expected to lead a normal life.

    Good thing the baby wasn't born in Illinois when Obama was a state senator there... he'd have been legally left to die in a dirty linen closet.

    I still can't believe that killing a baby is accepted because it is a "choice" and it is "legal".

    That is reason #1 I could never vote for a candidate Republican or Democrat who supports killing babies.

    The nerve of people who would kill this baby. More proof that abortion is barbaric to babies and simply evil.

    I think I will bump this thread until one of the liberals in here try to advocate the killing of this baby.

    Funny how none of them show up when a face is put to the crime.

    Pretty much, I think.

    Basically, she was entirely within the law to abort the baby, and had she done so, the little guy would be dead now... so, what does that say about the law?

    The only thing that bothers me about that is that she decided to abort it because it could have medical problems ....

    Turns out the baby will be fine ..... with only minor kidney damage.

    But then again I am against abortions so I am admittedly biased.

    Um, for possible medical reasons. And medical reason not related to herself but to the baby.

    In other words, she would have preferred to kill the baby than to give it a chance for life, which as proven here, he has a great shot at now as you mentioned. EDIT: As Zrin said.

    This is more proof that they are babies and not "choices". You can't hold a choice.

    My biggest problem with this is why did she not get her tubes tied ...... if she was really scared that any baby she might have would have medical problems .... why not completely fix the problem?

    Maybe you're right. But then again, it may make others think twice before making a decision they may regret the rest of their lives.

    No one's attacking you, by the way. At least I'm not.

    I'm not interested much in changing the minds of those whose minds won't be changed. I more interested in making it illegal to kill the baby.

    Not attacking you. Just making the point regarding the baby.
