@hdeerslayer, your right you don't get it. You miss the beauty of a young woman who has the courage to defy modern societal norms by saying no to artificial birth control and no to abortion. Children are a gift from God. This was a selfless act of courage. Remember, hdeerslayer, that chid will be paying for your Social Security, Medicare and Obamacare. Finally, I believe God gave her better advice than the doctor and she chose God's path.

So where do you draw the line? She knew the dangers and proceeded with a pregnancy that would likely kill her. Some religious groups refuse blood transfusions and other medical procedures. Is that prudent? Also, are you saying that birth control is immoral?
Am I supposed to be feeling worried that I question the act of this woman because
"that chid will be paying for your Social Security, Medicare and Obamacare."? I am self employed and do not intend to be on ObamaCare. As for the SS, we have been forced to pay forward for a very long time. No control over that. Your argument is similar to the "Be nice to the illegals because they will be taking care of you when you are old." argument, and does not hold water. No guilt here, but Bozell's take on theology is flawed, and I believe the young woman in question made a grave mistake not worth celebrating.

Heck no, lpsondon.
Heck no!
I am a Christian too.. and I abhor the kind of "narrative" that bozell uses. (and you by extension)
This is the kind of narrative that classical church thinkers like C.S. Lewis or even Frank Turek would reject.

God says use your brain for the glory of God.
Let me ask you... "Is needlessly risking your life while you have 2 children and a husband depending on you.... give glory to God?"
Is dying needlessly leaving 3 kids without a mother give glory to God?

You have to be KIDDING me!
It is a tragedy what happened to this family.
But don't give me that claptrap that what she chose to risk is "God's Path".
God's Path does not cause a mother to die an avoidable death.

God gave us a brain to become doctors, mechanics and accountants.
For God's sake, please make use of those God given talents.
Pay attention to what doctors say. Those doctors are doing God's purpose for their lives here on earth.

why do you assert that she needlessly risked her life?

do you have information not available in the story to justify such a statement.

or, are you just preening in front of a mirror and finding in your self-image a self-righteous indignation that is rooted in an arrogance that makes you believe you have a right to pass judgment on people of whom you have no real knowledge?

Information you ask? Right in the narrative:
"No one knew better than her husband Justin exactly how tired she really was, and no one was more anxious. He knew she suffered from HELLP syndrome, an obscure but potentially deadly disease for pregnant women. He knew she'd been told by her doctors that another child might kill her. Twice before, she'd suffered emergency C-sections. They feared her body might not withstand a third pregnancy...".
