Capitol Connection Episode 53

Pro-Life is Pro-Women, Pro-Science, and Pro-Love

The pro-life movement isn’t just anti-abortion or “pro-birth.” It’s a movement based in science and propelled by love that shows compassion for both mothers and their babies.

Despite the U.S. Senate’s recent failure to pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would have banned abortions after 20 weeks, powerful stories of mothers choosing life and technological advancements in medicine like 3D and 4D sonograms provide hope and optimism to the pro-life movement.

President Trump captured this in last week’s State of the Union Address by sharing the heartfelt adoption story of a couple he invited to be honored guests, Ryan and Rebecca Holets.

Officer Ryan Holets came across a woman on the street who was 8 months pregnant and preparing to inject herself with heroin. When he informed the woman she would be harming her baby, she broke down in tears. Officer Holets  helped the mother choose life for her baby, and ensured her that the baby would have a safe and loving home by adopting the child with his wife, Rebecca, despite having four children of their own.

This incredible story shows the value in every human life, and why every child deserves the right to life despite the circumstances they might be born into.

Pro-life isn’t just anti-abortion. It’s pro-women, pro-science, and pro-love.

Hear more about the Holets’ adoption story and why the pro-life movement is growing in this week’s Capitol Connection podcast.
