Washington Congresswoman Gives Birth to ‘Miracle Baby’ After Refusing Abortion

PORTLAND – A Republican congresswoman from Washington has given birth to a ‘miracle baby’ after refusing abortion as an option when told that the chances of the child’s survival were small.

Representative Jamie Herrera Beutler and her husband Daniel announced the birth of the child, a girl, on her Facebook page on Monday.

“With great joy, gratitude and hope, we are pleased to share with you the news of the birth of our daughter, Abigail Rose Beutler, on Monday, July 15 at 3:13 AM at Emanuel Legacy hospital in Portland. She weighed two pounds, twelve ounces and was only 28 weeks along,” the announcement read. “She is every bit a miracle.”

Earlier this year, Beutler, 34, was informed that Abigail had a fatal condition known as Potter’s Syndrome. The baby’s lungs were not developing properly due to a lack of amniotic fluid and would likely die, the doctors said. Therefore, Beutler was given the option of either aborting Abigail or letting the baby die on her own. But being pro-life and a Christian, Beutler knew that there was really only one choice: to trust God.

“Multiple doctors explained that based on medical evidence her condition was incompatible with life and that, if she survived to term, she would be unable to breathe and live only moments after birth,” the family explained. “The options we were offered were termination or ‘expectant management,’ that is, waiting for her to die. Instead, we chose to pray earnestly for a miracle.”
