Image of Babys Hands Touching His Fingers Highlights Dads Moving Letter to Miscarried Son
At almost 20 weeks pregnant, Tom Riles and his wife lost Scotland Bansley Riles to miscarriage. Riles said that when they received the news that the baby had died in the womb, they were offered several options go to a clinic to take care of the situation or go to the Hospital.
He said that they chose the hospital to deliver the baby because of their faith. Riles said he was so thankful they did it that way. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/12/image-of-babys-hands-touching-his-fingers-highlights-dads-touching-letter-to-his-miscarried-son/

Unexpectedly Pregnant at 42, Mom Decides Against Abortion After Walking Daughter to School
The title of the deeply personal reflection at www.parenting.com is, Im What? Accidentally pregnant at 42, I faced the hardest decision of my life.
This hit home for two reasons. My own mom, rest her soul, delivered my youngest brother when she was 40. My dad, an over-the-road truck driver, was gone and I drove mom to the hospital. To this day the experience remains as vivid as if it happened yesterday: while she was delivering James, I worked on a paper for a writing class my freshman year in college! http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/12/unexpectedly-pregnant-at-42-mom-decides-against-abortion-after-walking-daughter-to-school/

Democratic Lawmaker: Aborting Down Syndrome Babies is Okay Because Jesus Would be Pro-Choice
Last year, North Dakota became the first state to ban the abortion of babies with Down syndrome. It was a small but important step in protecting the lives of those with disabilities, who are often the most vulnerable among us.
Unborn children prenatally diagnosed with a disability are, without question, the most helpless and endangered human beings among us. So the fact that North Dakota state lawmakers stood up in defense of these unborn children is more than just laudable. Its incredible, and more states should follow suit. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/12/democratic-lawmaker-aborting-down-syndrome-babies-is-okay-because-jesus-would-be-pro-choice/
Mother Gives Birth to Health Baby Who Grew in Her Abdomen, Not Her Womb
A 22-year-old woman in Tanzania has given birth to a healthy baby after a rare pregnancy, during which the unborn child grew in her abdomen rather than her womb.
The woman went to hospital with stomach pain at 32 weeks and told medical officials she noticed her baby was not moving much during the pregnancy and that she was struggling to go to the bathroom. Previous antenatal check-ups had suggested the pregnancy was normal and, after a checkup, doctors thought the symptoms were caused by anemia and an infection. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/03/12/mother-gives-birth-to-health-baby-who-grew-in-her-abdomen-not-her-womb/
Pro-Life Candidate David Jolly Beats Pro-Abortion Alex Sink in Florida Special Election
