Mother Decides to Carry to Term Baby Inside Her Without Any Brain, So She Can Donate Its Organs

How about ending the week on a sweet -- or, at least, bittersweet but uplifting -- note?


The baby is going to die, obviously. It has no brain. Literally. It did not form a brain. A human being cannot live without a brain. The baby is only alive now because most of the functions the brain would oversee to keep him alive are being provided by the mother.

The doctors told her that, post-delivery, the baby would live no more than 24 hours.

But she's decided that his life can at least give life to others, so she's going to deliver him.

"This is our daughter's perfect heart. She has perfect feet and perfect hands. She has perfect kidneys, perfect lungs and a perfect liver. Sadly, she doesn’t have a perfect brain," Keri wrote in a post on Instagram. Faced with terrible options, Keri said they decided to continue with the pregnancy to full term to give other children a chance at life.

"We know she will not live. But someone else is desperately hoping for a miracle. Their kidneys are failing them. Their liver has betrayed them. They deserve life, and they’re probably praying for it. Eva can be their answer to it."

Thanks to @weirddave0.

And if that one wasn't enough to make fertile your stony hearts, try this one: Dying woman pens op-ed praising her soon-to-be-widowed husband, telling the world how wonderful he is and why women should be interested in making his acquaintance.

After learning she had later-stage cancer and would not be long for the world...

This is when we entered what I came to think of as Plan "Be," existing only in the present. As for the future, allow me to introduce you to the gentleman of this article, Jason Brian Rosenthal.

He is an easy man to fall in love with. I did it in one day.

In related news, I just got a text message in Japanese. It's from this guy who seems an awful lot like me who's a bit low on air but wants me to know that Juggs and Gent are still putting out quality work.

Okay,I couldn't really end the day with so much sappy uplift.
