Photos: Meet the baby born with no eyes

 One child born with horns, another one born without a nose and now a new baby born without eyes. Care worker Danielle Davis, 24, and her partner, Andrew Smith, 31, from South Wales  welcomed a daughter two months ago - a baby with no eyes. Danielle said she knew there was something horrible wrong with her child because a routine scan when she was pregnant showed her child had a cyst on the brain but she refused to have an abortion. After the child was born, doctors confirmed she had anophthalmia, a birth defect which affects just one in 10,000 babies.
"It was a shock - we had never heard of it before. But she is our gorgeous baby and we have no regrets about turning down a termination." Danielle said

"We want to give Daisy as normal a life as possible and give her the same opportunities as other children. We had never heard of the condition before and neither had any of our friends or family. People didn't really know what to say when we told them.
"The cyst showed up on the 21-week scan and naturally we were worried about it. But none of the doctors said our baby could be born blind. Everyone has been really supportive and I can't thank the doctors and midwives enough for all of their help."
Little Daisy will later this month go for an operation to fit glass eyes. And when she's 18months old, they will be replaced with painted eyes that will look more natural.

In a case like this I think abortion would have been okay, since the world have advanced in technology to discover deficiency earlier before birth,unlike in olden days.

They have tried to keeping her.

Some times when I look at arguments in support of abortions and argument against abortion, I don't know where to stand! Will you bring a child into this world that you know will be born blind and let her suffer it her entire life?... It is against Christianity and life-threatening for a woman to do abortion especially due to promiscuity. But where abortion will save the woman's life or where it will prevent bearing a child whom you already know would be blind, will you submit to abortion?!!!

The God that has given that child will find a way to solve her problem.

It's the genetically modified foods. They're altering our DNA and our babies.

The world is that bad that kids want not to 'smell no evil, see no evil'. These are celestial warnings, they are not just random.

Madam Hoha said...

Lord i thank you for creating me complete Ooo. Stories like this reminds me of how grateful I should be every day of my life.

Madam Hoha said...

I actually think your mother should have aborted you instead so we don't have to read this bullshit you've just dropped here. Everyone deserves a chance in life despite the situation.The baby could turn out to be the bread winner of the family. Ever heard of a great man called Stevie Wonder?
olodo.

Madam Hoha said...

They r just grateful.

Madam Hoha said...

In times of confusion, turn to what the word of God says.

Madam Hoha said...

Amen

This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses.
