Andrea Bocelli, a very famous tenor, tells the story of how his mother was advised by doctors to abort him because he might be born with some disability. Daneille Bean at the National Catholic Register comments:
I always think, when people argue for abortion in the “hard cases” of disability, that they ought to ask the baby’s opinion …
Do you want to live? In spite of being disabled and perhaps suffering quite a bit throughout the course of your life, do you want life?
Because the human response is always YES. Here, Bocelli’s response is a beautiful, joy-filled YES. And the world has been blessed many times over by his mother’s choice for life.
