Pregnant woman, 19, due to give birth despite having abortion AND using contraception


A young mum who was grieving for her aborted baby was astonished when she found out she was FIVE months pregnant.

Shannon Skinner, 19, went for a medical abortion when she was eight weeks pregnant when she decided it was too soon to have a second child.

But in a rare occurrence, the procedure failed and she continued having morning sickness and feeling movements in her womb.


Amazing story!

I do have to comment on the variety of news outlets you post from. Where do you find them all?!


Wow! Gosh!


First I have ever heard of such a story; God be praised!~


Despite all of the odds.

God certainly has a plan there.
We should all enjoy watching it play out.


Praying all turns out well for the baby and the parents. Promising news to say the least.
