More 'Miracle Babies' Promised

[...continued from...]
Gilbert Deya has moved to Scotland from where he is fighting his extradition. But he is not laying low.

Reportedly against the advice of his solicitor, Deya held a press conference in which he claimed that a woman whose fallopian tubes had been removed was on the brink of giving birth to what he described as a "miracle baby" conceived through the power of prayer.

With him at a press conference in Glasgow was Deon Dawkins-Scott, who nervously lifted her top to display a stomach that suggested she was in the final stages of pregnancy.

The 34-year-old Jamaican-born woman freely admits that her fallopian tubes were removed some years ago. She also agrees that a series of ultra scans have shown no sign of a foetus growing in her womb.

Despite this apparently incontrovertible evidence, Ms Dawkins-Scott firmly believes she will bear a child within the next few weeks. It is, she says, a gift from God.

Though doctors have told Ms Dawkins-Scott, who now lives in London, that she is experiencing a phantom pregnancy, she claims that she is a full nine months into a real pregnancy and expects to give birth soon.

She said: "I am pregnant. The tests say I am not, but I can feel the contractions and the baby kicking inside me. I had six miscarriages, and had to have both my fallopian tubes removed.

"I went to see Archbishop Deya and he said to me in the name of Jesus, and touched me, then he said go, you are pregnant. In five days' time my abdomen started growing and I knew I was pregnant."
