Briefing. Doctors frequently tell parents their babies will be disabled or ill when this turns out not to be the case: the tests they use have reletively high rates of false results. It is scandalous that these tests are used to condemn babies to death.
From SPUC: Doctors in England predicted an unborn baby with a heart condition would be stillborn, and twice recommended abortion, yet the child has been born and is now 10 months old. Hypoplastic aortic arch was diagnosed at four months' gestation. Gaynor and Lee Purdy, the boy's parents, switched hospitals during the pregnancy and never considered abortion. The blockage of Kai Purdy's aortic artery seems to have cured itself since birth. Edwards syndrome was also diagnosed in utero but he does not have it.
Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael
Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
