Much more than half of all children diagnosed in the womb with a birth defect in America are aborted. High on the list: those with Down Syndrome and spina bifida. Setting aside the fact that sometimes the diagnosis is wrong, and setting aside the fact that even serious birth defects range in severity- with very mild consequences often being the case, it just isn't the case that in the 'worst case scenario' these children cannot have a fulfilling life, experiencing the joy of living themselves and enhancing the lives of others.
When Anthony Horvath and his wife were told at their 20 week ultrasound that their daughter likely had spina bifida, they were faced with the choice to 'terminate' her. Knowing very little about the condition and only have two hours to research it before being faced with the life and death decision, they relied on their strong convictions as Christians. They did not hesitate to choose life.
This small book is their story and their reasons for why they chose life, and why you should too. It is perfect for those who have just been told that their unborn child has a birth defect and are enduring the grief that that event brings. The book urges people not to act rashly, to get the facts, to think carefully about what they are about to do, and to recognize the implications of how one decides to proceed.
Anthony is a Christian apologist and now a national pro-life speaker.
