Pray for this child

A woman in Israel had an abortion at 5 months on a doctor's instruction that the child was showing no signs of life after the mother's bleeding. Hours after she was delivered and placed in a freezer the baby girl moved and opened her mouth just as she was being taken to be buried. She is still in neonatal intensive care right now.

I realize this is a blog for religious freedom and life issues and that thoughts about those issues are impossible to avoid in connection with this story. And that's a shame. I long for a world where there is no perceived political axe to grind in simply praying for the survival of this little girl.
