An Incredible Pro-Life Story
By Maria Gallagher, Legislative Director

The clergyman had been telling me for weeks that he had an incredible pro-life story to share in an upcoming sermon.

He did not disappoint.

The story began some time ago, with a husband and wife who had a dream of building a strong family. While they struggled, they managed to care for a good-size family which was the culmination of their dream.

Then, at the age of 15, their daughter became pregnant.

This caused quite a bit of consternation for the man, the woman, the teenage girl, and other family members.

But once he got over the initial shock, the man counseled his daughter to give birth to the unexpected child.

Years later, the man was on his deathbed. Who was it that provided round-the-clock care for him in the waning days of his life? It was the surprise granddaughter who pledged to provide him comfort and care.

When an unexpected pregnancy occurs, a range of emotions can grip a family. But if they can just hold on and weather the storm, they can learn an essential truth: that every human life is precious and should be protected.

The baby saved today could save someone else decades later. In providing support to a pregnant woman and her baby, the life you save may be your own.
