No Situation Justifies Taking the Life of a Baby in the Womb

A mother in Buenos Aires, Argentina, who was diagnosed with breast cancer, refused chemotherapy in order to save the life of her child in the womb (according to LifeSiteNews.com, July 31). Laura Alejandra Figueroa, at only age 39, decided to postpone chemotherapy until after her baby’s birth. This was her ninth child. The cancer has now spread to her brain and is considered irreversible.

Mrs. Figueroa said: “Today, more than ever, there are people who are against life, who want to legalize abortion, which I consider an abominable crime…. I would like all women who are pregnant to remember that no situation, no matter how difficult, justifies taking the life of the baby in their womb. Not even in cases of rape or the life of the mother…. I want my child [Pedro, who was born] to know that I love him and that I will always love him, that I will give my life for him if necessary.” (Mrs. Figueroa died on August 9.)

Wow! What a statement!

However, if there is universal salvation, why bother? Abortion is then not an “abominable crime” — God automatically forgives everything. It’s obvious that Mrs. Figueroa does not believe in universal salvation.
