Baby girl given 1% chance of survival described as ‘Christmas miracle’ by mother who rejected abortion pressure

The mother of a baby girl given just a 1% chance of survival has described her birth as a “Christmas miracle” after rejecting pressure to have an abortion.

When Kirsty Mizon’s waters broke at just 13 weeks, doctors told her that her baby would pass away within 48 hours and that she should go home and wait for it to happen.

Recalling the event to Derbyshire Live, Kirsty said: “I was devastated. I went home and I waited for the inevitable to happen.

“But it didn’t. My baby’s heartbeat was still going strong.”

As her pregnancy progressed, the doctors persisted in offering her an abortion, telling the 23-year-old that her baby “will be handicapped and won’t be able to use his limbs.”

She said: “They gave her a one per cent survival rate because I was constantly losing amniotic fluid…

“Doctors said with no fluid the baby wouldn’t have any lung capacity or be able to move. It was awful.”

Kirsty began to make funeral arrangements for her unborn baby.

She revealed: “I had been in touch with a bereavement midwife before and I cried so many tears for the baby I thought I was going to lose. I was even put on antidepressants.”

When she finally went into labour at 29 weeks Kirsty was resigned to her unborn baby being a stillborn.

However, against all odds, baby Lacey was born alive at 29 weeks on 1 December weighing a tiny 3lbs.

Kirsty explained when she heard her baby cry, “it was the best feeling ever, the greatest sound I have ever heard.”

She added that baby Lacey is “doing really well” and only has one minor problem which can be fixed with physiotherapy.

It is hoped, Lacey can join her mother, her father, Lewis, and two brothers, Leo and Logan, in the family home in the new year.

She added: “I am still in shock. I just can’t believe I have a baby. A beautiful baby girl.

“She is my Christmas miracle.”

Dear reader

Thanks to the support from people like you, last year a major attempt to hijack the UK Government’s flagship Domestic Abuse Bill with two extreme abortion proposals failed, in a major pro-life victory.

Unfortunately, this is not the end for our opposition.

We are currently facing major threats on five separate fronts:

  1. Pro-abortion MP Rupa Huq has brought forward an amendment to the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill to introduce a jail term of up to two years if a pro-lifer offers support or advice to a woman near an abortion clinic. This is a threat to unborn babies and to freedom of speech.
  2. The assisted suicide lobby has brought forward a bill to legalise assisted suicide, which was introduced to the House of Lords on 26 May.
  3. The Northern Ireland Secretary has given himself new powers to force expanded abortion services on Northern Ireland.
  4. The abortion lobby is further exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to attempt to make dangerous ‘DIY’ home abortions available permanently.
  5. The abortion lobby is expected to make another attempt to change abortion law to allow abortion on demand, for any reason, up to birth.

If these major threats from our opposition are successful, it would be a disaster. Thousands of lives would be lost. 

Fighting both the abortion and assisted suicide lobbies over this period has already made a huge dent in Right To Life UK's limited resources.

To cover this gap and ensure we effectively defeat these proposals during this period, we must raise at least £200,000.

We are, therefore, asking people like you to please give as generously as you can. Every donation, no matter how small, will make a significant difference.

By stopping these threats, YOU can save lives over this coming period.

Will you make a special gift right now to help protect vulnerable lives from these threats?
