Dear National Right to Life Friend,
I hope you read the amusing and heart-warming story of little Michael Steppling posted in National Right to Life News Today. The delightful recollections of his mom will remind you why together—you and National Right to Life—we work as hard as we do on behalf of God’s little ones.
“3-week-old baby continues to sleep in the same position as in his ultrasound — and it’s too adorable” read the headline in Yahoo Life.
When Sarah, Michael’s mom, had an ultrasound taken at 38 weeks, she could see Michael’s “adorable face and relaxed disposition,” Kerry Justich wrote. “With his arms beside his head, Michael looked quite comfortable in his mother’s womb.”
Mrs. Steppling told Justich that after Michael’s birth, she took “about a million and a half images of him sleeping in that exact same position. One day, I thought to go back and look at his ultrasound pictures. I saw that one and was like, ‘OMG! He sleeps just like that now!’”
Exactly. Michael at three months was the same Michael he was at 38 weeks that he was at three weeks–only larger and more fully developed. He didn’t suddenly “become” Michael. He always was Michael!
Planned Parenthood will tell you otherwise. Michael was “potential life” or some such gibberish. The truths of fetal development will always take a back seat to profit for the nation’s largest abortion “provider.”
In partnership with you, NRLC is fighting the good fight, winning back territory lost to the forces of death yard by yard, sometimes mile by mile. Thanks to our new pro-life President, just this past Sunday we celebrated the one-year anniversary of the confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch. We pray that additional justices who respect the Constitution will take their places on the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile NRLC remains the force behind bans on abortions of pain-capable unborn children and on dismemberment abortions.
But to continue to do so, we need your help.
At the beginning of the year, I asked every National Right to Life member to commit to giving at least one $50 contribution to commemorate our 50th anniversary as our nation’s leading voice for Life.
Some of our friends have already been able to meet the $50 challenge. May I ask you to consider making another $50 contribution to help us be even more effective? Or, perhaps you’re blessed to be able to give $500, or even $5,000.
But please know every contribution—$250, $100, $35, or any amount—will be used efficiently and productively.
Thank you for all you continue to do to help His most defenseless children.
Carol Tobias, President
