The Italian Twin Case gets worse

According to Life News, the Italian woman who aborted twins at 18 weeks, because one of them had Down syndrome, says "Neither my husband nor I can sleep at night," she told the Corriere della Sera newspaper. She said the happiness she and her husband had about the pregnancy has become heartbreak.
They are "truly desperate over this terrible mistake," she said and added they are consulting with attorneys to determine what to do next. She is suing the doctor, Anna Maria Marconi, from San Paolo hospital. She said her conscience was clear and that she had no reason to believe she did anything wrong -- pointing to the changed position of the babies during the abortion. She called that an "act of fate that could not have been foreseen" and said hospital officials have taken her side in the matter.
What kind of healing can the mother expect to find suing the doctor who was just doing as she was paid to do; kill the unborn children?
You, your husband, and the doctor need confession, not lawsuits. That's where you will find peace. Let's pray that they repent, and that a hospital named after St. Paul and a doctor named for the Blessed Mother and St. Ann, no longer bring disgrace to their namesakes by performing the sin of abortion.

You said it all right there. I only hope someone will tell the parents what you just said. To ask for death and then sue when you reap the sword shows the depths of cognitive dissonance in the modern world.

I hope that the judge sees that to it that the couple will get no monetary reward for the death of their children. They all need to repent for their sins and find forgiveness. Who are they to play God and choose who lives and who dies. In 15-20 years there will be no Down Syndrome children because of selection of child and abortion. The children bring joy, smiles, patience and happiness to all those they are around. I feel bad for those who are so selfish that they can not have the "perfect" gift from God.
I pray that they find the healing from the horrible sin they have done. I do want the parents to know that there is peace and life after an abortion and it is through Rachel's Vineyard.

It wasn't an act of fate that changed the position of the babies. It was an act of God.

I dearly hope that, through prayer and repentance, the couple will find peace and joy in their Savior.
