I Love You But I Wanted You Dead

abortionAriel Knights, 22-year old unwed mother of a pre-schooler, found herself pregnant again, even though she learned during her first pregnancy she had uterine didelphys.  The genetic condition results in a double uterus with individual cervices. After being told the second pregnancy could put her life at risk, she went to a clinic to have an abortion, but, after a week, she was in an E.R. and learned she was still pregnant.  She went to yet another abortion clinic and was told they wouldn’t treat her for “somebody else’s mistake.”  Seven months later, she gave birth to a healthy 6-pound baby girl.  She’s now suing the first abortion clinic for not killing that same healthy baby girl.

This story got my head spinning with the many issues it presented.

Miss Knights knew she had this genetic condition.  She carried her son in her left uterus without any complications, and I’d be surprised if her doctor at the time didn’t warn her that another baby, if carried in her right uterus, would be cause for alarm.  Yet, she went ahead and got pregnant again.

She says she has a “fiancé’” and my response is always, “show me the ring.”  And why didn’t they get married during the second pregnancy (the report doesn’t indicate if the “fiancé’” is the father of the boy or the girl) or after the daughter’s birth?  If she was so concerned for her health and future pregnancies, why didn’t she have her tubes tied when her son was born or using more than one means of birth control?  Was she even using one form of birth control?

If this lawsuit goes anywhere and if she receives any settlement whatsoever, I hope she puts this money away for the therapy her daughter is going to need when she finds out her mother sued an abortion clinic for not killing her.  How do you tell your daughter that your intention was to kill her?  How do you explain it when her daughter eventually finds out?  Miss Knights now says she’s blessed with a beautiful child and considers her a “miracle baby,” so why the lawsuit?

I’m hoping when the child is old enough she’ll find a creative lawyer who’ll file an attempted murder charge against her mother.  My advice:  I’d tell her to forget about Mother’s Day.

I don’t get it, but if you do, God bless you.

    Child Protective Services should keep a watchful eye on this woman. I am
    no fan of CPS but I have real concerns about this woman’s ability to be
    a mother.

    It seems like there was malpractice by the physician but what is the damage. Miss Knights is “blessed with a beautiful child” who is a “miracle baby”. Any damages should be put in a trust fund for the child for having to be raised by Miss Knights. Another excellent article. The only thing I disagree with is Miss Knights might not consider abortion killing a human being. Most people who have abortions probably do not consider it killing a person.

    Sports people have an answer: “no harm, no foul.” If Miss Knights now says she is “blessed with a beautiful child” and considers her (daughter) a “miracle baby”, how has she been harmed? This article speaks to the mother’s greed and avarice, rather than her wish for justice.

    I hope she puts the second baby up for adoption.
