Gemma Holmes was driving her scooter last year when the 26-year-old hit a parked car and sustained such significant injuries that she went into a coma. After almost dying from the accident, Holmes awakened three months later and doctors informed her she was four months pregnant.
Holmes suffered from amnesia and couldnt remember the last three years of her life including the identity of the father. However, she rejected the abortion advice from physicians and gave birth anyway. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Babies learn to recognize words and sounds in the womb, scientists say. An the baby does so well at recognizing the words that he or she has memories of them after birth, research shows.
From todays report: It may seem implausible that fetuses can listen to speech within the womb, but the sound-processing parts of their brain become active in the last trimester of pregnancy, and sound carries fairly well through the mothers abdomen. If you put your hand over your mouth and speak, thats very similar to the situation the fetus is in, says cognitive neuroscientist Eino Partanen of the University of Helsinki. You can hear the rhythm of speech, rhythm of music, and so on. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
How long can a human embryo be frozen at a fertility clinic and still be implanted in a mothers womb and be able to grow and develop to birth? One woman implanted a unique human being and gave birth to a child 19 years after initial freezing.
RH Reality Checks Andrea Grimes wrote a piece last week deeming it a myth that babies survive abortions:
Gosnell was, in fact, a rogue provider, and that there is no evidence of a pattern of infants being born alive after an abortion, much less of doctors killing infants in those circumstances .

Ninety percent of unborn babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome are aborted. Thats not a typo 90 percent. This distressing statistic makes the following mothers even more remarkable for choosing life for their beautiful children who just happen to have an extra chromosome.
Mayumi Mitogawa, 52, Japan From Japan Times, on her 14-year-old son, Yutaka: He just loves to make people laugh, Mitogawa said, smiling affectionately at her son who was born with trisomy 21, which causes Down syndrome as he fooled around mimicking the motions of famous Japanese comedians. I know that some people refer to children with Down syndrome as angels, but I dont see my son like that. He is just human. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Contrary to popular opinion abortion hurts women. TheUnChoice.com is an evidence-based Elliot Institute campaign to raise awareness about unwanted abortions, post-abortion issues and maternal deaths and to provide help, hope and healing.
This week, the Pew Research Center released the results of a survey on the morality of abortion. The results indicated that 49 percent of Americans found abortion to be immoral.
The word abortion does not appear in the Bible. Yet, Gods Word has plenty to say that relates directly to abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/

NARAL Writing Contest: No Harassment of Any Group Except the Unborn
Once upon a time abortion was a secret, an act that didnt promote glory or pride; few celebrated killing a baby even when they thought somehow it was the right choice But as the pages of history turn we see abortion glorified as a subject of personal victory. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/

Planned Parenthood participation or support in any celebration, march or rally honoring Rev. Dr. Martin L. King Jr. is not only insulting, but a slap in the face of this great man, a smear on his dream that all life is precious, and worse of all, Planned Parenthood has the blood of millions of murdered babies, mostly black, on their hands and foreheads. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
