A second surrogate mom carrying triplets and being pressured to abort one of her fetuses is sticking to her guns in a desperate bid to save the unborn child.
The birth parents “knew from the beginning that we wouldn’t want to abort unless it was a life-and-death situation,” anguished surrogate Brittneyrose Torres told The Post.
“We would never want to abort a baby’s life.”
Torres, 26, of Thousand Oaks, Calif., agreed to tell her story after seeing The Post’s report last month about another surrogate mom, Melissa Cook, who was being pressured to abort one of the triplets she was carrying. She, too, refused.
After reading that story, Torres reached out to The Center for Bioethics and Culture Network, a surrogacy watchdog, in an effort to fight the abortion demand. Torres is 17 weeks pregnant.
She was initially implanted with two fertilized eggs, in hopes that one of them would develop. Both did, and one split in half, making twins — a not-uncommon occurrence during in vitro fertilization. The twins are male and the third child is female.
“We did not think we would be in this position,” Torres said.
