The unexpected announcement came on a day that had been filled with dire developments flooding social media news streams. 

This particular news bulletin came across the electronic transom in the most inauspicious of ways—a two-line email response. The message was short, but exceedingly sweet: a pregnant woman who had been contemplating abortion had changed her mind—and, as a result, changed the world surrounding her. 

That single, beautiful life that had been saved brought joy to a number of hearts that were so hungry for good news. No, the announcement would not be delivered on cable news, but that one woman’s decision for life was of immense importance—for herself, her family and friends, and her community. 

One woman’s courageous “yes” to life can have a tremendous ripple effect, encouraging other women to boldly and enthusiastically embrace the babies hidden within them. 

One woman’s valiant decision to protect her child from the culture of despair can bring hope to countless others. 

One woman’s empowering choice can have lasting, life-affirming effects for generations to come. 

The amazing, incredible, and love-filled truth is that our nation is strengthened by each solitary decision in defense of the life in the womb. Each baby saved from the scourge of abortion is a human being of breathtaking possibility. 

Every “yes” to life is a “yes” to true freedom, to human dignity, to the hope that does not disappoint. It is a captivating serenade amidst a din of noise and negativity. Each “yes” is an antidote to fear amidst trying circumstances. 

And in that “yes,” new dreams are born.
