Pregnancy saved this mom's life

Amy Hansen of Fort Collins, Colorado, credits her son Gavin, now 5 months old, with saving her life. The 29-year-old was diagnosed with ovarian cancer during the early stages of her pregnancy--a disease that might have gone undetected for months or even years had it not been for her desire to be extra cautious while bearing a child.

denied

Even those with strict anti-abortion views realize that, sometimes, extenuating circumstances make this the only reasonable alternative--however difficult and emotionally taxing for all involved in the decision-making process. Few, for instance, would argue too vociferously against an abortion being granted to a 10-year-old girl who became pregnant as a result of being viciously raped.  And yet, in Senegal, a 10-year-old girl has been ordered to go through with her pregnancy or face 10 years in jail--even though the pregnancy resulted from her being raped by a neighbor.

Pensó que cáncer que la dejó estéril había vuelto, pero se trataba de milagrosa sorpresa

Porque soy una optimista empedernida, de esas que miran el vaso medio lleno en lugar de medio vacío, y porque estoy convencida de que lo único que no tiene solución es la muerte, soy de las que vive según el viejo adagio que reza: la esperanza es lo último que se pierde. Y aunque hay circunstancias en las que hay que estar preparado para lo peor, soy de las que siempre espera lo mejor.

Y lo mejor fue lo que le ocurrió a Nicole Malloy, de 22 años y quien después de haberse tratado un tumor cerebral cuando tenía apenas 11 añitos, los médicos le dijeron a sus padre que la niña nunca podría ser mamá porque había quedado estéril.
