Andrea Bocelli, the world famous tenor, has shared his personal story about his mother and abortion.
Bocelli says, "Because of my personal convictions as a devout Catholic, I am not fighting against something, I'm fighting for something ---and I'm fighting for life."
Here's the story.
His mother was hospitalized while pregnant for what was thought to be a simple attack of appendicitis. The doctors applied ice on her stomach and after treatments were complete, they advised the mother to abort the child.
Bocelli says, "They told her it was the best solution because the baby would be born with some disability."
The mother refused the abortion and Andrea was born September 22, 1958.
Bocelli says, "Maybe I'm [biased] but I can say that it was the right choice."
He says, "I hope this could encourage many mothers that sometimes find themselves in difficult situations---in those moments when life is complicated but want to save the life of their baby."
Andrea Bocelli, although blind, inspires and entertains audiences around the world with his God-given, one-of-a-kind, tenor voice.
This story, of course, reminds us of a similar story that was publicized during this past Super Bowl.
Tim Tebow, a Heisman Trophy winning college football player, lives today because his mother made the same choice. She chose life---not death.
By the way, for all us Seahawk fans, Tebow will be playing quarterback for the Denver Broncos this coming season. I hope they do well. Except against the Hawks.
Each life is wonderfully and marvelously formed by God. For each, He has a plan and to each He gives a gift.
One can only imagine the loss of contribution to our lives, our culture and our country resulting from the millions of abortions we allow under the guise of "choice".
God forgive us. And thank you for the mothers who choose life.
