One mother is sharing an image of her baby, born premature at 21 weeks, to show the humanity and inherent dignity of children in the womb. The image, posted by Save the Storks on Facebook, affirms that the preborn are not “clumps of cells” or “tissue,” but unique human beings. Although baby Madalyn only lived for two hours after birth, her life had meaning, and the time her parents had to spend with her was invaluable.
Tragically, the abortion industry has dehumanized children in the womb. Madalyn’s mother, Jennifer, writes that the rhetoric pushed by Planned Parenthood and abortion facilities is “disheartening” because it devalues human life:
According to Planned Parenthood, a baby isn’t actually a person until they are born and begin to breathe. According to them, abortion should be legal until 36 weeks after conception.
Meet Madalyn, Our daughter born at 21 weeks 6 days.
Our daughter, who graced the world with her presence for 2 hours and 37 minutes. The precious little girl who has taught me compassion, empathy, and love. I think of her often and all that was lost when she passed.
I dream of the beautiful 7-year-old she would be today. I grieve for all the time I have lost with her. Reading and listening to all the pro-choice excuses is beyond disheartening. An unborn child is never just “A clump of cells.”
They are not “just tissue” and I promise you they are never unwanted.
There are thousands of couples who would love to cherish your child as the precious gift they are. When a child dies, we lose not only their life, But everyone and everything that stems from them.
Who would they have been? What would they have done? Who would they have Married? God created each and every one of us in His image and for a purpose. A Child is not a choice and their life should never be thrown away.
Life is not to be disposed of because some may deem it as an inconvenience. Every life is precious and should be protected.
