This woman is a true heroine. However, I think freepers should be aware — please correct me if I'm wrong about this — that this mother went beyond what pro-life morality would demand. While it would have been wrong to abort her child, it would not have been wrong to roll the dice and have the chemo (while still pregnant). That she did not have chemo is truly admirable, but is more than what the prolife movement would demand.

Yes, I agree. I’m glad this woman had a choice. Bless her.

Exactly true, utahagen: if she had decided the other way and gone through with the chemo, that would have been both legally and morally blameless: that is, legitimate treatments to save a mother's ARE morally justified, and are NOT in the same category as abortion, even if the baby dies.

Which makes this woman's decision even more admirable, because it was above and beyond: a sheer, grace-filled, superabundant gift.
