At five months gestation, Sierra Yoder went to the doctor for a routine ultrasound to find out how her baby was growing and whether she was having her second little boy or her first little girl. She was told her baby was a boy, but she also learned that her son had an encephalocele, which meant part of his brain was growing outside of his skull. Doctors advised Yoder and her husband Dustin to abort the baby.
(Life Site News) Twin babies born one week before abortion may be legally limited are fighting for life inside an Iowa hospital.
Twin boys, Wrennyn and James Weeks, were born on last Thursday, June 2, at just under 23 weeks’ gestation. They weighed 1 lb. 5 oz. and 1 lb. 6 oz.
Although extremely premature, they are receiving treatment at the University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City.
When Kimberly Smith was just 19 years old, she was already the mother to one little boy, and she had discovered she was expecting her second little boy named Phillip. She was a bit stressed out, having recently suffered the loss of her younger brother, but nonetheless, she was happily awaiting the birth of her new baby. However, about halfway through, her normal pregnancy took a drastic turn that would leave her questioning whether or not to abort her baby.
Here is a list of 40 quotes from medical experts and medical textbooks that prove human life begins at conception/fertilization.

Alyssa Reidhead and her husband Ben we’re thrilled when they found out they were pregnant. For the young couple from Idaho, having their first baby was the happiest time of their lives.

Nick and Sarah Szmiot were excited to learn that they were expecting their second child, but that joy quickly turned to sorrow when an ultrasound revealed that their baby’s heart had stopped beating around five weeks gestation.
Within a few days, Sarah delivered their son, whom they named Reuben, and the couple was able to take photographs of him. They shared these photographs with LifeNews in order to show the world the humanity of a preborn child in the very early stages of development.
(Pregnancy Help News) On April 19 Rebekah Buell stood before California’s State Assembly to defend AB 2134, a bill stating that all abortion clinics providing the abortion pill RU486 must also inform their clients of the pill’s reversal alternative.
While still a 17-year-old high school student, Buell became pregnant with her first child. Determined not to become a stereotypical teenage mother, she managed to graduate early, get accepted into Sacramento State University and marry the father of her child.
Soon after her marriage, however, Buell realized she was in an unhealthy and potentially dangerous relationship.
“I was about halfway through my freshman year of college and my marriage was very physically and verbally abusive. I knew I needed to leave,” Buell said. “Right as I began the divorce process I found out I was pregnant again.”
Getting a diagnosis of Down syndrome is something you can never fully prepare for. And while medical advances have made this a better time than ever before in history for people with Down syndrome, negative stereotypes and outdated information still persist – leading the majority of women with a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis to choose abortion.
Other women choose to fight for their children after receiving this diagnosis. Leah Silverman is one of these brave mothers.
Abortion advocates often claim as a defense of abortion that no one can really, truly define the moment life begins. Without knowing that, they say, there’s no real argument against abortion. Consider, for example, Melissa Harris-Perry’s insistence that life begins “whenever you feel like it does.” Obama famously said that the question of when life begins was above his pay grade. While the science of embryology has long since been settled, it’s still not good enough for abortion activists.
But a new scientific breakthrough might go a long way towards changing hearts and minds: scientists have been able to capture the moment life begins, with a burst of fluorescence as a new life is conceived…
Oklahoma is already at the top of the Americans United for Life, annual list, which ranks states on their protection of life. Now a bill that landed on Gov. Mary Fallin’s desk Thursday is making headlines nationwide.le
SB 1552, authored by Sen. Nathan Dahm and Sen. David Brumbaugh, directs the Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision and State Board of Osteopathic Examiners to revoke the medical licenses of doctors who perform abortions.
Premature babies are defying the odds at increasing rates. Baby Sebastian is one of them. He was born during the second trimester of pregnancy at 24 weeks gestation weighing just 1 pound, 13 ounces, but he overcame every obstacle he faced.
On April 10, 2016, a pro-life Facebook page named The Anti-Choice Project shared photos of a miscarried preborn child. The Anti-Choice Project’s name is meant to be ironic, as pro-abortion groups often call pro-lifers “anti-choice.”
The pictures were shared by an anonymous poster who recently suffered a miscarriage in the ninth week of her pregnancy. She chose to share the pictures of her child, whom she named Vincent Marie, in order to raise awareness of the humanity of babies killed in the womb by abortion. The pictures are meant to remind people that the 3000 babies aborted every day are actual human beings.
It seems not only is there profit in babies dying in the womb and sold piecemeal, but there’s profit in hospice patients dying before their natural death—at least this is what one Dallas area hospice owner is being investigated for doing.
Sometimes, kids do unusual things. Any parent will tell you that. It’s a little scary sometimes, but more often than not it’s enjoyable watching kids just be kids. Each one is unique, and their individuality can be observed in their behavior from the beginning.
It seems that my five-year-old son, who likes to jokingly punch himself in the face “just for fun,” is not the only one. A Kansas couple, Dave and Vanessa Watson, recently observed their preborn son, EJ (Edward James), engaging in a one-man boxing contest, which he won handily. At a 20-week ultrasound, EJ was seen striking himself in the face with the speed of a skilled fighter…
