Two Chilean identical twin brothers, Felipe and Paulo Lizama were also in the news some years ago after they were ordained Catholic priests.
The siblings say their mother’s determination to protect them in her womb fostered their vocations.
“My mother was told to abort because the baby she was carrying had two heads, three legs, and four arms, but she refused to do so,” says Fr. Paulo. “She chose life even though she was supposedly at risk.”
Even though “therapeutic” abortion was legal in Chile in 1984 and medics had told Rosa Silva that her life was at risk, she firmly opposed the procedure. Instead, she said she accepted whatever “God commands.”
“I have a special place in my heart for the thought of how our mother was willing to give up her life for me – for us,” says Fr. Paulo
The twins were born on September 10, 1984. Felipe was born first, and the doctors thought of doing a procedure to remove the placenta, as it wouldn’t come out by itself. But Rosa told them to wait as she felt another child was on the way. Paulo was born 17 minutes later.
“They could have seriously injured me, but my mother knew I was there. This means a lot to me,” he said in an interview to ACI Prensa.
