Romans Chapter 1 verse 31 describes a group of people whom, I believe, inhabit the world today, for they are:
“Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.”
Surely persons who advocate aborting children fall into this category: no understanding, breaking of bonds and covenants, lacking natural affection, can’t be pleased, and the final–without mercy. Take a look at this baby girl and hear her story.
Little Macie McCartney was welcomed into the world not once — but twice.
Four months into Keri McCartney’s pregnancy, doctors reportedly noticed a tumor growing on the baby’s tailbone.
Doctors discovered that the tumor was stealing blood from the fetus and weakening her heart. So, at 25 weeks, surgeons at Texas Children’s Fetal Center cut into McCartney’s abdomen in an effort to remove the life-threatening mass, according to a CBS News report.
“Prenatal surgery is still done in very few select areas in the United States,” Dr. Manny Alvarez, FOXNews.com’s managing health editor, said Monday. “And there are a limited number of medical conditions where prenatal surgery is indicated and this is one of them.”
At a period of gestation when she could have been legally aborted, caring parents called on doctors to do something for their baby. Wonderful, talented physicians operated on this tiny girl, then tucked her back inside her mommy so that little Macie could get on with her growing.
Abortion is a terrible thing, and flies in the face of the Almighty God who alone creates life. Today I read this report from Planned Parenthood itself:
Why are children aborted? The Alan Guttmacher Institute (the research arm of Planned Parenthood) states:
1 percent are victims of incest or rape
1 percent had fetal abnormalities
4 percent had a doctor who said their health would worsen if they continued the pregnancy
50 percent said they didn’t want to be a single parent or they had problems in current relationships
66 percent stated they could not afford a child
75 percent said the child would interfere with their lives
But here we have little Macie who four weeks ago was born normal and healthy, due to God’s grace and mercy, loving conscientious parents, and caring, skilled physicians.
More pictures of Macie here.
It’s a time to rejoice.

Let the praises be.
That little girl is the daughter of Pastor Chad McCartney from Grace Bible Church in Laredo Tx. She has landed herself in an abundance of warming arms and is surrounded by people who love her just as she is.
Yes, Helen, let the praises be.
Taryn, thank you for this information. A marvelous, uplifting account.
