Urged to abort her baby, Kristina Davis instead puts her faith in God
“There’s no chance for your baby to survive.”
For the third time in less than 48 hours, Kristina and Charles Davis faced the possibility of aborting their child, a little girl they have named Johanna. The day before, they discovered that Johanna was healthy at about 20 weeks into Kristina’s pregnancy. But the ultrasound also revealed an unusual thickness near Kristina’s cervix — Johanna was sharing space with a tumor, and doctors couldn’t tell how aggressive the cancer was.
Twice before, Kristina and her family prayed for guidance, and twice her doctors came back with new information that put on hold the need to abort Johanna. But now a top specialist in the field of gynecological cancers told Kristina that she may not survive the pregnancy.
