This is a picture of Jodie Percival and her son Finley. Ironically, she tried to have him aborted when she thought he might be born with a life threatening disability. Now she seems happy he survived her attempt to kill him, presumably because he turned out normal after all? Pretty sick and selfish. The story is below with my commentary in red.
Baby Miraculously Survives Abortion, Expected to Live 'Normal' Life

A mother who decided to abort her son because he may have inherited a life-threatening kidney condition is overjoyed that he survived the procedure. (Did you catch that- "may have inherited"!) Jodie Percival of Nottinghamshire, England, said she and her fiancee made the decision to abort baby Finley when she was eight weeks pregnant. Percival's first son Thane died of multicystic dysplastic kidneys — which causes cysts to grow on the kidneys of an unborn baby — and her second child Lewis was born with serious kidney damage and currently has just one kidney, the Daily Mail reported. (so, she couldn't stand to have another son like the one she had? I hope Lewis never finds out about her attempt to abort his brother).
"I was on the (birth control pill) when I became pregnant," Percival, 25, said. "Deciding to terminate at eight weeks was just utterly horrible but I couldn't cope with the anguish of losing another baby." (WOW! It's absolutely all about her. Never mind the child. She couldn't cope with losing him? So she tried to kill him? Seriously warped!) A short time after the abortion, Percival felt a fluttering in her stomach. She went to the doctor for a scan and discovered she was 19 weeks pregnant. "I couldn't believe it,' Percival said. "This was the baby I thought I'd terminated. (killed) At first I was angry that this was happening to us (lady, what about the kid you tried to kill? What about him? "happening to us"?), that the procedure had failed. I wrote to the hospital, I couldn't believe that they had let me down like this. "They wrote back and apologized and said it was very rare," (is this not sick?) she added. Dr. Manny Alvarez, managing health editor for FOXNews.com, said Percival's situation is actually quite common. "Women that have early terminations in weeks six, seven and eight, many times the pregnancy is so small that doctors miss removing the baby," Alvarez said. "The danger is that the failed attempt can damage the baby. (Good grief! A failed attempt could damage the baby..yet a successful attempt slaughters it! Do these people ever listen to what they are saying and describing?) That is why these patients who get early terminations need follow-ups." Another scan a week later confirmed the baby also had kidney problems, but doctors told the couple the baby was likely to survive, so they decided he deserved another chance at life. (herein lies the problem, they have assumed the role of God. How gracious of them to give him another chance at life. I can't wait till they can hold their little Finley in their lap and say, "well son, we did try to slaughter you, but you were such fighter, when we realized we failed in our first attempt, we thought we'd go ahead and let you live the second time.) In November, Finley was born three weeks premature. He had minor kidney damage but is expected to lead a normal life.
Normal life? I wonder how it will feel when thinks about his mother's decision to try and kill him?
