A Black Louisiana mother who was denied an abortion now faces the decision of carrying her baby to term even though it has a rare skull condition or traveling to a different state for the procedure. Nancy Davis, a mother of one, is 13 weeks pregnant with her second child, but the doctors have informed her that the baby won't survive. 'It's hard knowing that ... you know I'm carrying it to bury it...you know what I'm saying,' Davis told local Baton Rouge station WAFB. Davis and her boyfriend were excited to welcome their new baby, but an ultrasound at 10 weeks from Women's Hospital revealed the child's fatal condition.
