Sextuplets 'a gift from God'

The mother of naturally-conceived sextuplets has revealed that she and her husband resisted pressure from doctors to undergo 'selective abortion' at fourteen weeks. "These babies are a wonderful gift from God," said Nuala Conway, "whatever God laid out for our lives we were taking it."

Sextuplets occur naturally in just one in 4.5 million pregnancies. The babies are still in intensive care but the couple are hoping to be able to take them home soon.
