Elaine works as a bi-lingual licensed practitioner nurse and she makes a point of being in the right place at the right time. During her career as a health care worker, she has been involved in various rescues simply because she had the skills necessary to save those whose lives were in danger - even when she wasn't on the time clock.
But according to the standards that some people have, Elaine shouldn't have been born. Her mother developed an acute case of toxemia in the sixth month of her pregnancy and Elaine was delivered by Caesarian section on March 10, 1951, three months before her due date, weighing one pound fourteen ounces. She was a fully formed, healthy baby, not an amorphous mass of cells. It was several days after her birth before her mother was allowed to hold her. Shortly after her birth, her weight dropped to one pound three ounces. She spent the first three months of her life in an incubator at the hospital. After her stay in the hospital, she went home and grew up like every other healthy child.
Aside from her work as a licensed practitioner nurse, Elaine devotes her free time to various activities. Her pro-life work includes belonging to Right to Life, writing letters to legislators and talking to people so as to spread the pro-life message. Her own life is witness to the pro-life movement because she was a child who is considered by some to be nothing more than a mass of cells or, at most, a threat to her mother's life.
Far from being a threat to her mother's life or to anyone else's life, Elaine has dedicated her entire life to helping people, especially in life threatening situations, whether in the womb, in a public place, in a home or even in a lake.
