I pray God eases your pain ,you are an example for others to value their good health and that no matter how hard life gets we should look forward . God bless you and I pray for you with all of my heart
That's idiotic reason to not have a abortion. It's not telling your children to kill themselves when they obviously gave birth to them. It's a choice before the fetus grows, and then you can't get one.
"Don't bring these monsters into the world" me:You're already here. It was honestly heartbreaking to hear about this story, Gabrielle and her twin sister didn't deserve the hate they went through. Hope Gabrielle will be alright and her pain goes away❤
Just my two-cents: It's one thing to not know about a disability and give birth, it's another to give birth fully knowing. When you know a child will have a very compromised life experience due to his or her severe disability, it seems incredibly selfish to give birth. There is a reason why disorders like Down Syndrome are being driven to medical extinction. As parents, your job is to give your child the "best possible life". With current medical knowledge, genetic testing, family genealogy, there is so much opportunity to know exactly what hands a child will be dealt with. It's not an easy decision, but certain disabilities/disorders are just too filled with endless, life-long suffering. Life is already hard.....don't need to disadvantage a newborn anymore.
People are so awful why would you ever shun or hate on/bully a pregnant woman or the children that were given birth to by her. Its not like they chose for that to happen to them or that there was anything they could do to change it. They were created that way and thats stupid for anyone and especially the doctors to try and push for a late term abortion when they had full functioning organs and were mentally healthy and could be surgically separated in the future. This is why I hate humanity. Smh too many awful people. They aren’t monsters, the people who call them that are the true monsters.
gabby if you are reading this i just want you to know that you are a survivor dont take any crap from people because you are stronger that those stupid fools that dont understand you have a good life your late sister would of wanted that for you so take care and good luck
I could never even imagine having a 12 hour surgery. By not even a year old these two children have been more brave than I ever could be. It must have been very difficult with them, but it’s important that they have happy, full lives.
the mom says she wanted to give them a chance and ignored what the doctors said but the only twin who is living is suffering. the doctors knew what they were saying. the mom seems so selfish.
it doesn't matter if she wanted to give them a chance, she knew her children would grow up roughly and they had all these risks.
it's because of what *she* wanted, she wasn't thinking about the child's future, despite what she says.
You can go to prison for k8lling the baby when there alive so why do people think that thay can abort them it makes me feel sick everyone deserves a chans
what's the difference if someone's alive going g to be born
to all the haters who say the mom should of aborted. Who are you to say anything, your not in the Mother's shoes and of course neither am i, but don't you realize abortion is MURDER!!! She made her choice and it was right for her. God bless the mom and her Daughter, she is beautiful !!!May God keep his hand upon you both and lean on him to give you strength in everything. God Bless !!!!
