Question from robert kowalski on 02-12-2013:

If an unborn child has severe life threatening mortal anomalies that would cause physical & mental pain for both the parents & the unborn child would it be God's will to cause an abortion thereby preventing grief & pain???... How do we know it's not God's will??? He can prevent evil from happening..

Answer by Judie Brown on 02-16-2013:

Dear Robert,

Obviously, none of us knows the will of God and must trust in His mercy and love. Unfortunately, grief and pain, in different forms, are part of our journey, and we turn to God at these times for the strength to accept his Will.

God bless you.
