Thank God for American Medicine

June 24, 2012

This article really brings to light how lucky we are to live in America, where modern medicine is practiced and advanced at all times. Of course, there’s limited information in the article regarding the type of cancer this woman suffered from, but I can’t help but wonder if her doctors explored every option available. Having only two options, terminate her pregnancy and be treated, or continue the pregnancy and not be treated at all seems incomplete to me. In her country do they even explore the options in between? Are religious beliefs a factor in the decisions she made? I know with blood cancers, it is much more dangerous to continue a pregnancy, and perhaps that’s what she had, but I can’t help but feel sad about the sacrifice she made. Although brave and noble, her child will grow up never knowing her.
