A Grammy-winning music star from Puerto Rico and his wife recently shared their pro-life story with the world, and it’s inspiring.
Juan Luis Morera Luna, known as Wisin of Wisin & Yandel, and his wife, Yomaira, learned that their preborn baby girl had been diagnosed with Trisomy 13, a condition that is considered incompatible with life. Most children with the condition don’t survive for much more than a month after birth, with the average being seven days. The couple, parents to two other children, was offered an abortion. They refused.
Rather than abort their child, the couple chose life without a second thought, and even made a statement on local television urging others not to abort their own children.
The baby girl, named Victoria, was diagnosed at five months gestation, and the couple said they plan to love their child for who she is and accept her completely.
“Don’t abort your babies, even when doctors recommend it,” Yomaira said. “Doctors try to convince you that abortion is right, but that’s not the path God wants us to choose, because we are not the ones to decide the life and death of a human being, even our own children. Trust that God has a perfect plan, even if we do not know why, or know how. Victoria has fulfilled every one of her purposes from the moment we knew of her condition.”
When Victoria was born just over a month ago, she struggled with a low birth weight and respiratory issues, but her parents celebrated her birth and life. They even posted to Instagram to announce her one month birthday.
Sadly, Victora died on September 30, but her parents were given a month with her that they weren’t sure was possible.
“I thank God for her one month of life, one month with Victoria,” Wisin wrote. “Princess Victoria, I will see you again in heaven. I’m in so much pain, God please help me. I want to thank millions of people who were praying for our family, and for our Victoria.”
