When One Is Enough

Amy Richards was pregnant with triplets, but she only wanted one child. So she had two aborted.

Her decision was made easier as the doctor thought one of the fetuses was 3 days older. The other two were twins.

Her reason for stopping the heartbeat of two of her unborn children? She didn’t want her “life” to end. She didn’t want to move out of her apt. and buy jars of mayo at Costco.

I see no logic in her actions, only selfishness. If she didn’t want her “life” to change, why did she choose to get pregnant by stopping birth control?

Is abortion truly about choice, or is it really about convenience?

My question: If all three fetuses were the same age, how does one determine which of the their unborn children to terminate? Flip a coin? Have the doctor decide? Or is it a question we were never meant to ponder?

And in all of this, this phrase echoes in my mind:
John 15:13- “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

or re-phrased:

“Greater love has no woman than this: that she lay down her life for her children.”

But, I’m just a guy, right? What do I know?
