Another touching anencephaly story

HT: Dawn Eden

RightWingSprakle brings us A Brief Life:
Angelina was told at the county hospital that her baby had Anencephaly and would die within hours of birth and it was better to abort her now.

Again, abortion being pushed on a woman who doesn't want it. Just like it was pushed on Marla Cardamone and Allegra Roseberry. I can't stress this strongly enough: Legalization did not merely make abortion available to women who'd have chosen it anyway. It pushes it on women who'd never have even considered it.
The doctors and nurse at the County hospital were angry at Angelina for choosing to give birth. Abortion was a much easier way to go. They treated Angelina as ignorant because she was poor and Hispanic. This would cost more money they insisted, but I assured Angelina that they could gripe all they wished, but it was her decision.

My point exactly. How is this respecting Angelina's choices? How is this respecting Angelina at all? Having abortion available is an easy option for those who want to abandon women like Angelina.
The day she gave birth and her beautiful daughter, Rosa, was born, the whole family had gathered. .... She told me later that it was the most perfect looking baby she had ever seen. .... Her eyes open and she gurgles just like any other baby. The whole family spent about 12 hours loving and holding her and then she died peacefully in her mother's arms. The mother told me that she would always be grateful for those 12 hours and it literally changed her life. She appreciates everything in her life now. She feels a great need to be a better person for Rosa.

Choosing life for Rosa was a blessing not just for Rosa, but for her entire family. Abortion would have taken this brief miracle and turned it into something purely tragic, with no blessings on anybody.
