Should Christians Pursue Prenatal Testing?


Feb 4 2013
New tests present pregnant women with more options.

Again, there is no right answer for women who approach prenatal testing from a pro-life perspective. Some will choose to forgo testing, and they can do so without concern for their baby's health and wellbeing. Others will opt to pursue testing with the knowledge that the tests will help them prepare for the child to come. Either way, perhaps the most pro-life stance women can take is to prepare their hearts to welcome whatever child is given.

Amy Julia Becker recently released an ebook, What Every Woman Needs to Know About Prenatal Testing: Insights from a Mom Who Has Been There (Patheos, 2013).
