Doctors have successfully delivered a baby girl from her mother’s womb after her mother refused recommendations that she abort her unborn child in the midst of a battle with an aggressive form of brain cancer, and instead decided to forgo treatment in order to save her baby.
Doctors at the University of Michigan performed a Cesarean section on Carrie DeKlyen Wednesday night, delivering her daughter, named Life, at a gestation of 24 weeks, 5 days. She weighs 1 pound, 4 ounces.
“Life was delivered at 24 weeks and 5 days at 5:30 pm. She is doing as well as they had hoped,” the Cure 4 Carrie Facebook pageannounced. “Thank you, Jesus, for this amazing gift of LIFE!”
