What if Mary received prenatal counseling? Would Jesus have been aborted?

During Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and the eternal light, peace and hope He delivers to this lost world. When we consider the path Jesus' mother Mary followed during her pregnancy I wonder what advice she would have been given if she had sought prenatal counseling.

Mary was a poor, unwed, pregnant, Jewish teenager in a male dominated culture, and she was homeless during the delivery time of her unborn son Jesus. Given these facts what suggestion do you think a counselor would have delivered to Mary if she had gone looking for guidance? The prospects for her future and her unborn son looked very bleak, dark and hopeless, and one can only surmise that the probable recommendation to Mary would have been to abort the Light of the world. What would our society look like today if Jesus was terminated before His birth? How many bright lights have we eliminated prenatally because the culture views their postnatal lives as a liability with no hope for the future?

My amazing daughter Chloe was born in 2003 with Down syndrome, and she has brought more Light to this misguided world in 10 years than most do in a lifetime. Currently 90%+ of children identified prenatally with Down syndrome are targeted and terminated because many see them as "defective" and a "burden," and these children shine the Light Jesus delivers and knows we desperately need – unconditional love, purity, kindness and peace.

As we journey through this season of Miracles let us remember that LIFE is a priceless gift regardless of the prenatal situation, and when we as human beings embrace this irreplaceable gift we will move out of the darkness and into the Light. Merry Christmas and PEACE on Earth!

John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."
