Today I spoke with Bill (one of my previous homecare patients…i did his nursing this past year) and it was encouraging to tell him what Im doing….because one of the biggest arguments about abortion is that the baby may not have “quality of life” if they are born with a disability. Bill is a quadraplegic. He needs assistance doing the basics of my every day life. He requires total care. However, his physical state does not define his quality of life. His heart, his personality, his family life, his friends…those are the things that are important to him! And he loves life because of these things …The argument does not win with me either….I have fibromyalgia which is a pain syndrome throughout my body (similar to an autoimmune disorder such as lupus)…I dont live a “normal” life every day…I am CONSIDERED disabed..but does this define my quality of life??? NO! And it doesn’t define an unborn babies life that may or may not be born with a disability. The baby can still have a wonderful life and they deserve to LIVE to show that!!!!
