Powerful Stories of Lives Saved Should Drive Pro-Life Advocacy

Carroll Mallory and Michelle Easton, president of the Clare Boothe Luce Center for Conservative Women

The Clare Boothe Luce Society’s Conservative Women's Network recently hosted a conversation,  "Why We Are Pro-Life," featuring pro-life advocate Mallory Carroll.

Carroll who has spent over a decade working in  the pro-life movement emphasized the significance of sharing stories about families blessed by choosing life despite medical recommendations advocating otherwise.

Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) and his wife, Karen, confronted the challenge of a Trisomy diagnosis for their daughter Abigail. Opting for life, Abigail, now a teenager, is a testament to the sanctity and dignity of every human being.

Carroll also recounted the story of former Congresswoman Jamie Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.). Facing the diagnosis of bilateral renal agenesis, known as Potter's Syndrome, Beutler and her husband were advised to seek an abortion. They chose life, and today their daughter thrives.

Santorum's and Herrera's experiences are not isolated. Pro-life advocates like Mallory recognize the power of these compelling narratives, shedding light not only on the value of every life but also on the need to enhance healthcare and research options for unborn babies.

Drawing a parallel to the eradication of diseases like polio, through research investments, the call should be  made towards developing cures for sicknesses that affect pre-born lives rather than surrendering them to abortionists.  However, the true take away from Mallory’s discussion is that because we are all fearfully and wonderfully made, each life in the womb deserves a chance regardless of possible birth defects. Because each life is valuable to the King of the Universe.

The conversation also emphasized the courage that conservatives should have is speaking up in the public square.  Since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, many politicians who once used the abortion issue to rally votes have gone silent.  That silence is largely because the media would have us believe that Americans are buying the false narrative that “abortion is health care,” and a fundamental “reproductive right.”  In truth, when we have the courage to speak up for the pre-born most common sense thinkers will agree that a pre-born baby is a human and deserves protection.

The first step is courage. We must have courage.
