Those rotten jumble of cells, they just don't quit

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. story from Foxnews

(my own .02)

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 won't even begin to pretend to know how scary it must be to know you are pregnant with a child who might not make it, but I do know people who faced this but continued on and allowed God's will.

"I was on the (birth control pill) when I became pregnant," how responsible of you to be on the pill since you are obviously so concerned about becoming pregnant again, yet you can't control your animal desire and abstain especially since this is your fiancee's (not husband's) child Percival, 25, said. "Deciding to terminate at eight weeks was just utterly horrible but I couldn't cope with the anguish of losing another me me me me, who cares about the actual person I am killing"

A short time after the abortion, Percival felt a fluttering in her stomach please let this be gas. 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 baby, what do you mean baby? isn't it just a jumbled mass of inviable mean you KNEW it was a baby and yet you 'terminated' it I thought I'd terminated i'll be back. At first I was angry that this was happening to us, that the procedure had failed how dare you survive you rotten little baby. how dare you put this burden on me. I wrote to the hospital, I couldn't believe that they had let me down like this i mean seriously, what a let down.

"They wrote back and apologized and said it was very rare," she added.

Dr. Manny Alvarez, managing health editor for, said Percival's situation is actually quite common.

"Women that have early terminations in weeks six, seven and eight, many times the pregnancy is so small that doctors miss removing the baby uh oh that b word again," Alvarez said. "The danger is that the failed attempt can damage the baby and again. That is why these patients who get early terminations need follow-ups to make sure we have really killed that leach sucking annoyance of a baby."

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 this last half of the sentence utterly disgusted me. he deserved ANOTHER chance at life??? how about he deserved his first chance at life. how about he never deserved to be the victim of attempted murder.

In November, Finley was born three weeks premature. He had minor kidney damage but is expected to lead a normal life except for the psychological damage he is likely to face when he finds out his mom put a hit out on his life.

I think it is truely horrible what that selfish "baby" did. I cant believe that the lump of cell carrier actually wanted to keep it after it maliciously thwarted the hit man...err... professional medical personnel.
Just horrible.

I read this all the while looking at that cute pic of your baby boy there on your sidebar. How HOW can people still deny the children they have helped to create?
Play God much?

Auntie Nee said...

I've recently seen my baby's heartbeat at only 8 weeks. Most people don't know that now at 9 weeks, this baby has arms, legs, and already formed fingers and toes. How is that not a baby? And I know if something happened and this pregnancy didn't come to terms, I'd be devastated. How horrible that people are so selfish as to justify killing a child. I can't imagine loosing this baby, and he or she is only 9 weeks. Have you ever read the story about babies surviving with less than 24 weeks? The definition of what is a life, needs to be changed.

Your commentary was right on. What I can never understand is that if you want the pregnancy, like if you plan it, you call it a "baby" and you start picking names, and looking at cribs, etc. and when you don't want it at 8 weeks you call it a "fetus", act like its cancer not a living thing and its ok to kill it, like a tumor?!
