A young Italian woman named Edi Bocelli was expecting her first child when she had an appendectomy, a big deal 62 years ago. Doctors advised her to abort because the child would have a disability. She refused and her son, Andrea had congenital glaucoma and was blind by the age of twelve. Andrea Bocelli went on to become one of the most famous voices in the world. His albums have sold over 90 million copies. He’s sung for presidents, popes, and prime ministers. And he publicly defends life within the womb, citing Jesus’ mother Mary who told Gabriel the pregnancy is according to God’s will. He now encourages other women to follow Mary’s example. Imagine, Andrea’s gift of LOVE through voice would’ve been lost had his mom chosen abortion.
