This question is on a delicate matter. I don't want u all to jump down my throat and be choking on your moral outrage with the possibility of bashing me. If u don't have any "helpful advice" Please refain from commenting. Well, with that being said, I have a bff that is pregnant with her 1st baby. The other day she called me crying so hard she couldn't talk straight. She just her 1st ultra-sound and the doc noticed something abnormal. She went back in and her doc told her she had baby that has a very rare condition and is always fatal for the baby. Apparently the baby's lack brain growth and the lack of skull is showing and for some reason some reason didn't form and its called " Anencephaly" always fatal for the infant and sometimes the mom also. I guess if my bff was able to carry full term, the baby may survive just mintutes after the birth, but thats it. Her doc told her she needed to abort the baby cause of the possibilty of her getting sepsis.
Her own mother told her if she gets the abortion, she will be disowned and will not be able to come back to the home. I was absolutely livid!!!!! I can't believe her mom would be willing to have her daughter die because her "religion" forbids abortions. What kind of mom will let her own daughter die just because her religion says so? Its going to be lonely time when mom day comes around.

if it were me I would take my mother to the doctor with me so the doctor could explain what is going on and why this is in my best interest. If my mother is still telling me she will disown me then I might even consider going to the priest at her church and have them talk to her. If nothing works, then yes this is very sad. No mother should disown her child because of something like this. Her daughter needs her more now than ever.
Good Luck to your friend.
