Not twins, not triplets, not quadruplets, but quintuplets! It is a rare occurrence, but for Susan it became a reality. Nonetheless, the 28-year-old future mom was advised to have a ‘selective abortion’ but Susan immediately refused!
But what is a selective abortion? It is a form of therapeutic abortion. One or more fetuses are terminated and/or removed to increase the chance of survival for the remaining others. Selective abortion without medical grounds based on gender is illegal.
Susan pertinently refused this without hesitation and was forwarded to a specialist. However, she got the same advice: continue the pregnancy with just a few of the embryos. Susan and her husband persisted and they would not regret it later. On the next page you can read why! It will give you goose bumps.
