To save the mother or to save the child
September 14, 2017 3:11am CST
I am watching a movie here and the mother is pregnant with her first child. She has a kidney condition and the doctor told the husband to choose between saving the mother or the child. It is really tough. If you save the child, the child will grow up without the love of a mother. If you save the mother, she might get well soon and give birth to many children in the future. Who would you want to be saved and why?

I don't think it's that easy to just tell her that she can have new babies again even if the child didn't make it. That would be her first and it would be traumatic if she learns that she was chosen over her child. I would chose the child.
One of my friends learned she had uterine cancer when she was pregnant. They believed that it was better to pray and have the baby, knowing that the mother might die. Now almost 30 years later the mom and baby (adult) are both alive and the mom is now a grandmother. They had great faith in God.
