Born at 27 weeks: Science said he would die; faith said he would live

They were told to prepare for him to die within 72 hours. Now he’s thriving. His name means “gift of God” and his family says their miracle baby, Nathaniel, lives up to his name. He was supposed to be born January 26, but he arrived suddenly early in the third trimester. And due to complications, he was expected to die. But his parents believed then what they see now: that Nathaniel would live.

Stephanie and Gregory Palmer stood on their faith in God and never stopped believing their son would thrive and go home to join his siblings, ages eight, six and 18 months.

The doctors advised us very adamantly and harshly to abort him in the womb, yet we refused and chose to give Zeke life.

New Mexico pro-life group shows lawmakers investigative research on state’s abortion facilities

In an effort to give the citizens of New Mexico a real look into the state’s abortion industry, a pro-life group has put together years of shocking research and presented it to state lawmakers.

Media minimize the March for Life, but this video proves them wrong

The media tends to skew pro-abortion, so it’s no surprise, really, that every single year, they do their best to ignore and minimize the March for Life.

This past weekend, you would think it would be huge news: hundreds of thousands of people gathering to peacefully protest in our nation’s capital, even with a blizzard coming. But because those hundreds of thousands of people are protesting abortion, the media stays quiet. When they do talk about the March for Life, they vastly underestimate it.

And it’s likely that her fierce devotion to her husband and family was learned from her mother who gave her life and the example of loving sacrifice.
