Mother Said ‘No’ to Selective Reduction on Quintuplets; Now They’re Graduating and Doing Amazing Things

“I said ‘No,'” wrote Thompson in a Facebook post on Love What Matters.
Then, after getting a second opinion, a specialist advised the same, to opt out the five children for three, even two perhaps.
“My husband and I never considered this, not for a second,” she said, having faith in God and her babies that everything would be okay.
And her decision prevailed because 20 years later, all five graduated. Three are heading off to join the military and two are pursuing careers in the medical field.
“I chose to save their lives and now they are saving the lives of others,” marveled Thompson.
Religion and political opinions aside, this woman and her family made a hard decision and it is wonderful that it all worked out.
