Baby Survives Abortion, Living Healthy Life

A baby thought to be terminated eight weeks into the pregnancy has survived. The parents are an English couple who chose to have an abortion because their first son had died from a kidney disease, and their second was born with serious kidney damage and is currently living with one kidney.

Jodie, the mother, says that she was taking birth control when she became pregnant with Finley. After the abortion procedure, she felt flutters in her stomach and returned to the doctor to find out she was in fact 19 weeks pregnant.

Because the abortion happened so early in the pregnancy, and the fetus was so small, the doctors missed it. At first Jodie was angry, but she decided to give her son a second chance at life.

The baby was born with minor kidney damage, and is expected to live a normal life. Finley truly has some determination to live — considering he beat out birth control and an abortion. Is this story a miracle, or a tragedy?
