Mother Of Disabled Child Takes A Stand Against Abortion

via Science Channel

Marsha Weigum, a mother who refused to abort her child with Down syndrome, is now dedicated to supporting parents facing similar diagnoses.

After being discouraged by a doctor and struggling to find resources during her pregnancy, Weigum is determined to ensure that other mothers in her situation have the support they need.

“Down syndrome, the word is not strange to me,” she said. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)

“That’s the job I did. My favorite child of them all working with the organization was one with Down syndrome.”

“I listened to her, but the minute she said termination, I didn’t think I wanted to hear much more,” Marsha said of a conversation with her doctor.

“These children are awesome, they’re innocent children, and now here I am having my own.”

“I want the next woman who’s gonna come through here to have something they can refer to … It shouldn’t be just this,” Marsha said.

“People say, ‘You can just go kill it because it could be bothersome to your life and to your family.’ That’s the kind of madness I was feeling. How do I do something about this? How do I change this? This is where I live.”

“I love this scripture so much because if my husband and I didn’t decide to speak up for this child and say, ‘We aren’t gonna terminate him because you perceive that he’s gonna be a burden to society,’ then he wouldn’t be here,” Marsha said of Proverbs 31:8-9, which reads, “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.”

“So I realized I’ve got to be the voice for those who are voiceless.”

“If nothing else, I want people in the community to know that there is hope … You know what real, true hope is? Hope is the confident expectation that God is going to do what he says he will do,” she said.

Inspired by her experience, she plans to launch an organization called Our Voice for the Voiceless to provide resources and support for parents of children with Down syndrome.
