Doctor Said “Your Baby is Incompatible With Life” and Suggested Abortion, Her Son is Now 23

February 13, 2020

Bestselling Christian author Shelia Walsh recently opened up about the struggles she faced when her unborn son was deemed “incompatible with life.”

In an excerpt from her new book “Praying Women: How to Pray When You Don’t Know What to Say” published at Fox News, Walsh described how overjoyed she was when she first learned that she was pregnant. She was 40 years old at the time and had been praying desperately for a child.

Because of her age, she said doctors recommended additional testing, and the test results were not good.

“I don’t remember everything [the doctor] said, but I remember this: ‘Your baby is incompatible with life,’” Walsh remembered. “I stared at her as if she was speaking in a foreign language. This was a phrase I’d never heard before. Neither Barry nor I said anything. We were stunned.”

Then, her doctor recommended an abortion and offered to schedule it for the next day.

“I was shocked. ‘No!’ I said vehemently. ‘No! Absolutely not. This little one will have every day God has planned for him to live,’” she wrote.

Walsh said she knew her unborn child, a son, was a valuable human being with a purpose, but she still despaired. She said she questioned God over and over again as the weeks went by, wondering why He had answered her prayer only to take her son away.

One morning, she drove to the beach to pray and felt something change.

“I had no idea how long I could carry our son, but I became relentless in my prayers, not for a perfect outcome but for the presence of a perfect Father,” she said.

Not long afterward, when she was 35 weeks pregnant, she received a call from her doctor. There had been a mistake. Her test results had been mixed up with another mother’s, and her baby was healthy, she said.

“There had never been anything wrong with our son. I fell to my knees and thanked God, but then I prayed for the other mother who would be getting a very different phone call,” Walsh remembered.

That was 23 years ago. Her son Christian now is a college student, and she is the co-host of LIFE Today with James and Betty Robison and her Wednesdays in the Word program.

Walsh shared her story to offer hope and encouragement to other families facing difficult situations. Parents frequently are pressured to abort their unborn babies after a poor prenatal diagnosis. Whether the test results are right or wrong, their unborn babies are valuable human beings who deserve to live – no matter how long their lives will be.

Walsh encouraged families to cling to Jesus and keep praying.

“If you are discouraged, let me say, in Jesus’s name, hold on! The enemy would love nothing more than for us to give up and stop praying,” she said.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
