Susan Thompson was 28 years old when she got pregnant with quintuplets but was shocked to hear doctors repeatedly urge her to remove some of her babies via selective reduction. The process will ensure that the other babies have a better chance of survival and will be healthier but for the heart of her, Susan just couldn't imagine the thought of having even just one of these babies terminated!
Every single time she goes to the clinic for a prenatal check-up, the doctors would tell her the same thing: reduce those babies for thier own good. But every single time, she has the same answer: never!
FAst forward to 20 years later, all of her babies are now grown up-and Susan does not regret keeping all of them at all! In a post that has gone viral on Love What Matters Facebook page, she shares the heartwarming story and reveals that three of her kids are now working in the military while the two are going to be doctors.
Surely, raising these kids had been a huge challenge yet Susan and her husband were able to make it without a single regret of what could have happened if they had some of the babies removed.
Would you consider selective termination? Susan said she never entertained the thought even for just one second!
"At the age of 28, I found out I was pregnant with quintuplets. Immediately, my doctor talked to me about selective reduction. When I said no, he sent me to a specialist who repeatedley asked me to consider reducing my pregnancy to triplets or even twins.This went on for several months. My husband and I never considered this, not for a second. God had given us these tiny children and He would take care of them. 20 years later I look back and can't imagine our lives without any of them. After graduation, three joined the military to serve our country and two are pursuing careers in the medical field. They are all responsible adults who love God and make this world a better place. I chose to save their lives and now they are saving the lives of others."
