The Patrick Madrid Show: May 27, 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.
