“They more or less advised us to [abort some of the babies],” says Nuala Conway, a 26 year old mother of newborn sextuplets in Northern Ireland, “They told us about the risks we faced if we went ahead with the pregnancy.”
The Roman Catholic couple decided to ignore doctors who advised the termination of some of the sextuplets in the 14th week of pregnancy, answering pro-abortion medical staff saying, “These babies are a wonderful gift from God. Whatever God laid out for our lives we were taking it.”
According to The Telegraph, sextuplets are born to one in 4.5 Million pregnancies.
What about the health issues? Won’t they have a poor quality of life? “The babies have been on and off antibiotics and ventilators. They are thriving really well but it’s hard to get a good day,” says new father Austin who has stopped working so that he can be at the hospital more, “There are so many of them there are always days when one or two will not be doing so well.”
“I fell in love when they were in the womb.” Nuala adds, “When one moved they would all move and I could definitely feel 24 limbs kicking.”
