How tragic - yet preventable if she chose not to murder her child. May God have mercy on her soul.

May those who choose to comment here remember: There is one Judge, and He is Judge of all. What's done is done; there is a family, and a community, with hurting hearts and a lot of loss. Altho' I stand on the prolife side of the issue, we don't know every detail of their situation, only they and God do. And what's done is done. Now is a time for mourning and comforting those who've lost so much. Where is grace? Where is mercy? Where is respect? And so I caution, very strongly, choose your words wisely, for the Bible says we will give an account for every idle word spoken. May your words be healing, not hurting. That said, the family is in my prayers and thoughts.

As I pray for the surviving family of Jennifer and Madison, my heart aches. I am so sorry for your losses. Jennifer was absolutely beautiful! I am so sorry for the tragedy. Where was the doctor when he was needed the most?

Please contact a local pregnancy care facility, that is trained in offering love and healing for those people that have suffered the loss of lives through abortion.
