This is crazy.  Apparently, a surrogate mother is currently being pressured to abort her child by the adoptive parents.  The reason?  The baby has a cleft lip/palate and may also have a heart condition.  Cleft lips are EASILY corrected by surgery and should not even be considered a birth “defect,” in my opinion.  The major effects are clearly reversible.  In addition, many people live happy and fairly easy, healthy lives with a variety of heart conditions.

No parent should abort their child, but especially not for a horrible reason like this.  Reportedly, the surrogate mom is pro-life, but she definitely needs our prayers.  Read more here, and pray for strength for her and a choice for life.
