The Patrick Madrid Show: March 12, 2024 – Hour 2

We dive deep into the moral implications of prenatal testing, and discuss the heavy decisions expectant parents face when confronted with potential genetic disorders. We hear powerful testimonies – from Nora’s choice to celebrate the life of her now-healthy daughter despite medical pressures, to heartfelt confessions about the pain of not acting quickly enough to prevent our loved ones from having abortions. With compassion and conviction, Patrick affirms the intrinsic value of every life, and the importance of providing support and accurate information to those grappling with these profound choices. This hour is a testament to the strength found in informed and caring counsel – a beacon for life in the often stormy seas of uncertainty.


  • Cyrus shares some of the flood of emails coming in from listeners praying for George (who called in the previous hour)
  • Sophie courageously seeks guidance on how to support her friend facing a difficult decision about prenatal testing results and the potential choice of abortion. Patrick applauds Sophie’s courage in speaking the truth in love and offers profound insights on the significance of choosing life, even in the face of hardship. He shares a compelling story of a couple who defied doctors’ advice and were rewarded with a healthy child. Throughout this emotional journey, Patrick reassures Sophie that she acted in good faith and encourages her to seek wise counsel from trusted sources.  (04:08)
  • Katie – My friend just went through this same thing. My friend had an abortion and I want to encourage Sophie and everyone else to speak up about this. 
  • Marie – My parents were told that I was going to be born with a number of medical problems and I’m now 25-years-old and perfectly healthy. (21:25)
  • Bridget – The one thing that people need to remember is that the abortion is very painful. How do you want that baby to die? (35:24)
  • Nora – I was told my baby girl would have down syndrome and we were encouraged to abort. She was born without down syndrome.  (40:05)
  • Can I take communion at the Lutheran church?
