A disabled mother who almost became a victim of forced abortion has given birth to a beautiful baby girl.

LifeNews broke the story last year of a mentally disabled woman, Elisa Bauer, who was close to becoming a victim of forced abortion after a Nevada county agency went to court to request that a judge okay the abortion.

After a legal battle, Nevada District Court Judge Egan Walker agreed that Brauer, 32 weeks pregnant, should not be forced to have an abortion against her will. LifeNews readers by the thousands called and emailed the judge’s office to allow Elisa to give birth to her unborn baby girl.

In an email to LifeNews, attorney Jason Guinasso indicated little Cierra Marie was born to Elisa Bauer over the weekend.



“She is five pounds and seven ounces and approximately 17 inches long. Her APGAR scores were 8 and 9.  She has a lot of dark hair and a nice pink skin tone.  She is sweet and good natured.  By all measures, she is perfectly healthy and sublimely beautiful,” he said.

“Thanks to your efforts several months ago, this is the child we helped bring into the world,” Guinasso added.
