Marcela's family and doctors have given their testimony in a two-part video made by pro-lifers in Brazil. Click on the images below to view the video. Subtitles for the video are available in English and Spanish (click on the YouTube logo to view on the YouTube site, click the tab in the bottom right-hand corner of the box and then click CC). Here are some marvellous quotes from the video:
"We had a very bad prognostic for Marcela, but I was completely against the termination of the pregnancy ... First of all, a doctor must seek life".
"I said to my family that if someone wanted to talk to me, to give me support to help me to go on with the pregnancy, that person would be welcome. But if someone came to say that I should terminate, I would send that person away."
"[Marcela]'s saving and still will save the lives of many other children. People see her story on TV and can have hope. Mothers can have hope."
"As [Marcela's] father...I would like to ask people to remove the possibility of abortion from your heads ... [D]on't eliminate this child, because it's very hard, the suffering will be much worse if you do it, you are going to kill a defenceless child."
