When I saw it I was so encouraged! Yes! She has a life, a human life growing inside of her. A human being from conception to the first positive test, to the first heart beat, to the first breath. My heart was encouraged because it appears a national brand is advocating life! A national brand is presenting to you America, a human being. This is not a blob, not unviable cells; this is a human being in the womb.
I thought that since Huggies acknowledged life in the womb they might advocate preserving life at every stage. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/02/05/huggies-commercial-theres-a-human-being-in-your-stomach/

Ms. Magazine: Doesn t Matter How 14-yo Got Pregnant, Get Her an Abortion
Ms. Magazine tweeted this on January 28 linking to this post on its blog:
She was 14 years old and going into the 9th grade. From the moment she learned she was pregnant, she contemplated what to do. Not comprehending how to even deliver a baby (let alone how to take care of a child for the rest of her life) prompted grave fears about her future. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/02/05/ms-magazine-doesnt-matter-how-14-yo-got-pregnant-get-her-an-abortion/

The line War on Women did not die on Election Night 2012. The pro-abortion lobby carefully coined this phrase in an attempt to neutralize advances made by those who believe that law and public policy should protect an innocent person s right to life. It s catchy, alliterative, and denotes violence and death, and so it works well in a soundbite world. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/02/05/pro-abortion-lobby-continuing-the-war-on-women-myth/
Arkansas House Votes to Ban Abortions After 20 Weeks
