NFL Player, Wife Will Keep Unborn Baby Despite Defect: ‘Who Are We to Determine a Baby’s Life?’

NFL fullback Evan Rodriguez and his wife Olivia are expecting a little girl in December, who has a rare birth defect, anencephaly. The couple has been speaking out about the diagnosis and their decision to keep their baby girl despite the fact that she will not survive long after birth due to the condition.

Doctors informed the couple early in the pregnancy that the baby will be born missing parts of her brain and skull and would live only for a few days, maybe only a few hours.

Evan Rodriguez told ABC Action News that the doctor told him and his wife that they could “either terminate it or move forward with the process.”

The couple said they relied on their faith to help decide how they were going to proceed.
