In Thursday’s episode of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, titled “Roar,” a brave, determined pregnant cancer patient took a pro-life stance rather than be bullied into an abortion by the doctors at Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital.

At the clinic later, test results showed Veronica had stage 4 pancreatic cancer – a terminal diagnosis – with less than a year to live, even with treatment. Unfortunately, the pressure began immediately for her to have an abortion so that her chemo and radiation could begin.

She only saw one patient, when she should have seen two.
