4 leaf clovers are prized. My Grandmother was great at spotting them and I collected several as a child. The extra leaf makes a clover more valuable, treasured, and cherished. Why, then, I cannot help but wonder, is an extra chromosome in a human being—rather than being perceived as a rare gift—considered by 75-90% of parents as cause for abortion?

Wikipedia says this about 4 leaf clovers: 

The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common, three-leaved clover. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. In addition, each leaf is believed to represent something: the first is for faith, the second is for hope, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.[1]

It has been estimated that there are approximately 10,000[2] three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf clover;[2]

Induced abortion is the most common surgical procedure performed on females of child-bearing age, including adolescent women, says a paper published by the American College of Pediatricians.” Among short and long-term risks to the woman are increases in mortality from suicide and other violence, breast cancer, and substance abuse. The increased risks not only affect the woman choosing abortion but her subsequent children who also have higher risks of death due premature birth. The paper titled, “Induced Abortion: Risks That May Impact Adolescents, Young Adults, and Their Children,” recommends that doctors educate their patients on the risks of abortion by giving guidance at well-child visits during the immediate pre and adolescent years.

I really did not have a clue,
Would not have given up baby blue.
Never dreamed she was a life,
Could have ended years of strife.
If I had known I carried a baby
I would have at least said, “Maybe”.
A child I never knew,
The information was not true.
If I could have made an informed choice, I would still be listening to her voice.
Years of tears for a wrong decision,
Given the truth I would have had a vision.
I lift up all my pain and loss,
I gently set it at the foot of the cross.
The Lord has mended my broken heart,
I am blessed with a brand new start.
So now I reach out to you,
With the love of Faithful and True.
