Vatican praises woman who died after refusing cancer treatment that required abortion

VATICAN CITY – The Vatican on Tuesday praised an Italian woman who died after refusing cancer treatment that would have required her to have an abortion. Rita Fedrizzi was died this week, three months after giving birth to a baby boy.

"She was aware that if she gave birth she wouldn't have had any hope of surviving," the Vatican newspaper wrote. "Despite that she went through with her choice, the choice of welcoming new life even at the cost of her own death."

I would make the same choice in a heartbeat. Pray for this woman's family as they grieve over her loss and celebrate the gift of life she gave to her son.
