A woman from Texas who was firmly pro-life has now changed her mind after she was forced to travel out-of-state to New Mexico in order to carry out an abortion when she found out her baby suffered a rare genetic disorder and was unlikely to live for more than one hour after being born.
Kailee Lingo DeSpain, 29, together with her husband David, 31, had both longed for a child ever since they got married in 2015.
