In the case of women who are told their babies may not survive outside the womb or if they do may only survive for a few days or weeks, who is anyone to define what constitutes a valid life?
There are many women who have borne babies like this and have cherished the precious short hours, days or weeks they have had with their babies.
Isn’t there something very beautiful about a woman loving a baby which may only live for a few hours so completely and unselfishly. That child will know nothing in his/her life except complete and pure love. The alternative of aborting him/her doesn’t add up in my view.
