First, I’d like to say that I heard this from American Papist first.
Here’s what happened:
Due to an IVF clinic’s mistake, a woman had a stranger’s embryo implanted into her uterus. The woman surrendered the baby boy to the biological parents after he was born.
Paul and Shannon Morell of suburban Detroit said in a statement that they would be “eternally grateful” to Carolyn Savage for her decision to give birth to their child despite the clinic’s mistake.
“It’s been a long, difficult journey, and we’re thrilled that our family is now complete,” the Morells said. “We will be eternally grateful for his guardian angel, Carolyn Savage, and the support of the entire Savage family.”
I’m so very glad that Mrs. Savage did not have an abortion. However, I’d like to pose a question to all those pro-choicers out there (and pro-lifers please join in too, if you have some thoughts):
If Mrs. Savage had not wanted to carry a stranger’s baby, would you have supported her decision to have an abortion?
See, it’s her body. And no one else can tell what pregnant women should do with their bodies. “Her body, her choice”….Isn’t that what all pro-choicers truly believe? She shouldn’t have felt any obligation to carry a baby she didn’t want, let alone one that wasn’t her’s. Right?
Would the biological parents have had any say in the matter? Could they have prevented her from having the abortion? After all, this was their last chance to have a baby.
