Duck Dynasty’s Jase and Missy Robertson never considered abortion – not even when their now 10-year-old daughter, Mia, was prenatally diagnosed with a cleft lip and potentially cleft palate. CNSNews.com reports:

At a Capitol Hill press conference sponsored by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), who was born with a cleft lip and cleft palate, Jase and Missy Robertson talked about the topic and answered questions. A person in the crowd mentioned the ultrasound pictures that revealed Mia’s condition and asked Missy Robertson, “Was there ever a thought in your mind you might not follow through with the pregnancy?”

Missy Robertson said, “Absolutely not. No. That thought never entered my mind. God gave each and every one of us life, as a gift. And each life has value and importance. And Mia has a special importance now in her life because of that….

Who am I to decide that for her?… God already decided that, allowed that to happen. I’m so glad for this opportunity – I wouldn’t ask for this, this special challenge in our life, no, we wouldn’t – but I’m very grateful for it. I’m grateful for the challenge, and I’m grateful for Mia, as a human being. I can’t imagine our life without her.”
