When Sinem Ibrahim’s mother heard devastating news about her unborn grandson, she realized that the situation was all too familiar.
Ibrahim, at 20 weeks of pregnancy, learned that her unborn son may have a fatal condition called fetal hydrops, the Mirror reports. Doctors told the heartbroken mother to consider abortion because her son likely would die anyway.
“I was devastated, so was my husband, it still makes me cry now thinking about it,” the Australian mother said.
She turned to her mother for comfort and advice, and their conversation turned out to be life saving for her son.
Here’s more from the report:
Her mum thought it sounded familiar and thought back to her own pregnancy.
She remembered being told Sinem was very poorly.
So she set to work tracking down her pregnancy records, and finally found some good news that gave the whole family hope.
She discovered Sinem had exactly the same thing, but was born happy and healthy.
She told Kidspot: “Once we heard that, I just knew everything was going to be fine. We weren’t going to terminate, I trusted in my gut that my son would be okay.”
Just as his grandmother predicted, Jordan was born healthy, weighing 6 pounds, 8 ounces. Now 3 years old, the little boy remains happy and healthy, according to the report.
His story raises troubling questions about how many aborted babies with poor diagnoses would have been born healthy. A person’s health does not determine their value, but abortion activists often use it to justify abortion.

Many parents say they feel pressured to abort unborn babies who are diagnosed with health problems in the womb. Just last week, a British couple said they felt pressured to abort their unborn daughter at 37 weeks of pregnancy because she was diagnosed with Down syndrome. In 2015, a journalist wrote a troubling piece about how doctors encouraged him and his wife to abort their late-term unborn son just because he had a cleft lip.
And in 2016, a Florida mother’s letter to her doctor went viral after the doctor pressured her to abort her unborn daughter with Down syndrome. She refused, and later she wrote a letter to her former doctor urging him to see how valuable her daughter’s life is and how wrong it is to pressure anyone to have an abortion.
These are the parents who refused. How many more have succumbed to the pressure and aborted their unborn babies, wrongly believing that they were preventing their child from suffering. And how many of those babies would have led full, happy and even healthy lives if they had not been aborted.
