It is often easy to become cynical about all politicians, but occasionally you do find those who are the real thing:


When she was pregnant with her daughter Abigail Rose Beutler, doctors told Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler, a pro-life Republican from Washington state, that her baby had a potentially fatal diagnosis that would claim her life shortly after birth.

Beutler posted a message on Facebook in June saying her unborn child had been diagnosed with Potter’s Syndrome, a condition which prevents the child’s kidneys from developing properly and is typically fatal for the baby.

In Potter’s syndrome, the unborn baby has an atypical physical appearance as the result of oligohydramnios, a decrease in amniotic fluid volume that causes developmental problems and babies with Potter’s Syndrome typically die within a couple days of being born.

Then, in July, Beutler said Abigail was doing well two weeks following her birth.

Now, in a new interview with the Today show, the congresswoman gave another update about her little girl.

Abigail will need a kidney transplant in the year ahead, but her parents and doctors consider the child a miracle.

Go here to Lifesite News to read the glorious rest.  Prayers for Abigail and her parents.  Keep your eyes on Mrs. Beutler.  She is an impressive lady who says what she means and means what she says, and that is rare among politicians.

  1. “We have had more Doctors tell us No than tell us Yes.”

    Great story.
    What isn’t amazing is the number of doubting Thomas’s that exist. The age of “disposable life” has taken root, like a nasty weed. To hear a story like this one beings to mind the Wonders and Testimonials of a Living God among us.
    A God that loves to be trusted. How many orher great gifts have been unopened because of fear?

    “Be not afraid.” Good reason to trust in God.

  2. I like the reporter’s dig of ‘It takes a village’.
    See Republicans?
    When the chips are down you need a village too!
    You owe your baby’s life to gubmint care – admit it!

    These libs cannot help themselves.

  3. it does NOT take a village….it takes lots of love from the family,friends and maybe even complete strangers…but it certainly does NOT take a village…

  4. “….often easy to become cynical about all politicians.”

    Enter Hillary RodHAM Clinton.
    She uses “It takes a village..”, as the title of her book, yet doesn’t consider her clout regarding the hundreds of thousands of aborted children she and other pro-aborts have participated in, indirectly yes, but none the less significant. Cynical about politicians?!
    Thanks to the likes of former Sec. Of State….you betcha.
