Catholic News Agency has a story about an illness one sufferer called the "most atrocious physical ailment" she had ever experienced.

The Duchess of Cambridge's stay in the hospital for Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which causes very severe morning sickness, could help other women avoid aborting their children, according to author Ashli McCall, who has experience with the condition.

In a Dec. 3 announcement, a representative for the Royal Family confirmed the pregnancy of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The illness, which is a severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, affects less than two per cent of pregnancies and is often under-diagnosed, causing some women to abort their children.
