First all-girl quintuplets born in US after parents refuse “selective reduction”

The first all-girl quintuplets have been born in the US after their parents refused to abort any of them through “selective reduction” another term for abortion.

When parents Danielle and Adam Busby were told they were expecting quintuplets they were surprised.


But when the doctor suggested that they “selectively reduce” or abort some of their daughters they refused.

At first they didn’t want us to have all five. They wanted us to reduce,” Danielle told Houston’s ABC13, “And our hearts just couldn’t do that.”

On the couple’s blog they recount the visit:

The couple said they struggled to get pregnant with their now three year old daughter and when they heard they were having even more girls their friends and family offered to help by donating car seats and infant clothes.

The girls were born in Houston at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas on April 8 at 4:41 p.m.

“I was truly impressed with how smoothly everything went. All 5 Babies were out and off to the stabilization area within 4 minutes! Wow! Don’t blink or you’ll miss a baby flying out the door! Good thing that we had someone in the room filming!” they wrote.

Olivia Marie, Ava Lane, Hazel Grace, Parker Kate and Riley Paige arrived by C-section at 28 weeks and 2 days.

Danielle and Adam say their faith has gotten them this far.

He will provide,” Danielle said, “He will provide.”

“We are so thankful and blessed,” Danielle Busby said, “and I honestly give all the credit to my God.”

On day three, the couple made this video to update their family telling supporters each one of their five new daughters have their own unique personalities.

The girls do have some medical issues to overcome and the couple would appreciate continued prayers.

  • We are praying for you, here in Omaha, NE. What a witness your family is to trusting, in the Lord. As my husband struggles to live just a few more days, he is so happy to offer all this to God for your family. We believe God honors our sufferings offered for others, so may God give you continued faith, Hope and Love.
