Marengo’s Amanda Schulten has decided not to kill her two babies, who are conjoined at the heart.
No abortion for her.
Even though her doctor advised her to have an abortion.
A devout Catholic (joining the Church just this Easter), the mother has decided to let God be in control.
Let go and let God, so to speak.
As her blog puts it,
The Chicago Sun-Times ran a large article, complete with photography of a very pregnant 21-year old, on Friday. It’s title was,
Faith in the face of adversity
Woman carrying conjoined twins tells
them in poem, ”My soul will never leave you’
This Sunday, there is an editorial in defense of the right to chose an abortion…
Exercising right not
to choose abortion
“Pro-choice means pro-choice, not pro-abortion,” the editorial writer states.
One might observe that Pro-Life means that a mother with that opinion wants her baby or babies delivered alive.
As Amanda puts it in a Friday post,
“I will do anything for them. And that means giving them a chance to live.”
Here’s McHenry County Blog’s Thursday article:
Commenting on her being a single mother, new Catholic Amanda wrote Friday,
“…seeing that people think I’m a cafeteria catholic (just had to add). I had no faith before this and now look I have God in my life…
“My fiance and I were planning a wedding but unfourtnatley we don’t have the money nor time as of right now.”
