Recently, everyday parents have spoken out on social media about choosing life for their children despite the odds.
Despite a flood of voices telling them to abort, they said no.
Despite doctors’ predictions of low-quality life, they saw the value in their child and said yes to life – however short.
Despite those who may forget, they remember the precious children who were miscarried.
Despite scheduling an abortion, they walked out, knowing that the decision they made in that moment would change their lives in the best way, forever.
These parents – and so many like them – illustrate one reason the abortion rates are dropping in our nation. Despite Planned Parenthood’s claims to the contrary, abortion rates are dropping because more moms and dads are choosing life.
Another girl (Live Action told her story of walking out of a Planned Parenthood here) wrote this on Facebook on June 17, 2015:
Three years ago I was told I should consider an abortion for [my son]. The Doctors thought he had hydrocephalus, and would be brain dead. I’m praising God today that my son is beyond perfect and is the light of my life.
Carolyn, author of the article “I Chose Life. And His Name is Lexington Anthony,” had this to say:
Lexington is a unique and separate little life.
Many times you’ll hear some older person talking about their life in a boring, unsatisfied tone saying, “Yeah I coulda done this or that, but life happened. . . .”
YES. Life. It happened.
He was supposed to happen.

Another mom posted this on Instagram:
Lora, inspired by singer Kimberly Henderson’s story of walking out of an abortion facility, shared her own beautiful choice for life. Her four quad babies have now graduated from school and are wonderful adults (pictured in the lower right-hand corner).
So this week, let’s celebrate the moms and dads who choose life. And, if or when we are ever personally faced with such a choice, let’s join the growing number of parents who know that life is always the choice worth making.
Choose life. No matter what.
