From EWTN News:
The women who were nominated for Walmart’s Canadian “Mom of the Year” contest have many outstanding qualities, but few can claim they fought off breast cancer and gave birth to their seventh child at the same time.
“We knew right from the beginning that God wouldn’t give us this life and then ask us to take it,” Maria Pitman told EWTN News July 10, explaining that the doctor wanted her to abort her child.
Pitman, a Canadian homeschooling mother of seven, was diagnosed with breast cancer early on in her most recent pregnancy.
Medically, the doctor said it “made sense” because it would make testing and treatment easier than if she were carrying a child.
I am utterly convinced that somehow this violates some province’s Human Rights Commission regulation somewhere.
St Gianna Molla, pray for us!
