A Special Gift
By Rick Boxx

A friend of mine was recently blessed with the birth of a baby girl with Down’s syndrome. Even though they knew about this lifelong condition early on, they chose to have the baby anyway.
These situations have created ethical dilemmas for doctors. The latest technology allows doctors to know of problems earlier. Due to that, many physicians urge abortion.
God said in Genesis 9:5-6, “From each man I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man. Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man.”
As a man who has been blessed with a child with special needs, I pray that our medical community will encourage life, rather than take it.
