A mother who saved the life of her son is being hailed as a hero for doing what came naturally.
A Massachusetts mom risked life and limb to make sure that her son would be safe. Christina Simoes woke up to find her home on fire and her life and that of her son Cameron in real danger. She didn’t have much time to act as the fire began to spread rapidly – so she quickly came to a decision. She had to jump from her second story window and use her body to cushion the fall so that Cameron would be safe. The mom never hesitated and because of her instincts her son suffered only a small bruise.
“I grabbed my son and I held him as tight as I could to my chest and I gave him a kiss and a hug, and I told him I loved him and I jumped out the window.”
“I didn’t think about it. All I was thinking about was getting him out of there. He mattered way more than I did.
I’m having a good day. My whole family is here, my son is here. It’s magical, I mean there’s nothing that feels better than having everybody here with me.
I don’t think that I’m any special hero at all. I’m just Cameron’s mom.”
This is how a mom (or dad) should react when their child faces danger. Abortion is not only counterintuitive it should go against every instinct in a parents body. To engage in abortion is to destroy everything it means to be human and everything it means to be a parent.
Christina Simoes is a hero, if only for going against the grain of our modern culture and putting her child’s needs before her own.
