Veterans fought for all of our lives -including the lives of unborn Americans. We, too, must defend life. -Stacie and Carrie
A barrage of brainwashed individuals with agendas currently attack unborn babies. Atrociously, they do this in the guise of compassion and empowerment of women (both of which are scientifically and ethically unsound arguments).
No exaggeration: Unborn babies need defense and prayers right now. The Biden administration just rescinded the Mexico City Policy, which restricted taxpayer money from funding killing babies overseas. In addition, he has reinstated Title X money for Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion chain.
But there is encouraging news: Many state legislatures and governors are passing legislation to protect the unborn. Volunteers and pro-life activists across the country also continue to speak out and minister to expectant moms and families. We encourage you to avail yourself of the many organizations, resources, and tips shared in this edition. (For example, the 40 Days for Life is an excellent one.) We must never underestimate prayer and God’s power; He is bigger than our greatest fears and evil.
Please continue to read a very special message from Stacie called 7 Ways Unborn Babies Positively Impact the World. Read as she shares about the importance of being pro-life from the viewpoint of being an expectant mother. Stacie and her husband Jim are expecting their first child, who is due in late February. Our family is thankful and excited about this very special new life.
Please join us in praying for defending unborn babies. We must speak out. Abortion must stop. Let babies live!
God bless you,Carrie Stoelting, ODStacie Stoelting Hudzinski

Resources to Empower Expectant Mothers
Life Is a Miracle
4 weeks after fertilization, the baby’s eyes and limbs are developing, and their heart can be viewed on an ultrasound scan.
At 10 weeks, a preborn baby’s brain is growing rapidly, producing almost 250,000 neurons every minute.
At 14 weeks, a preborn baby has developed enough coordination to suck its thumb.
Studies have concluded that, at 20 weeks (and possibly much earlier) a preborn baby can feel pain.
A preborn baby as young as 22 weeks can survive outside the womb.
7 Ways Unborn Babies Positively Impact the World
As an expectant mother in the late third trimester, I eagerly anticipate the birth of my husband's and my first child. We have deeply desired this precious baby. And the baby has already been bringing joy and blessings to others. Yes, our unborn baby already has been loved, cherished, and used by God. This may sound like an overly emotional statement, yet it is fact. Further, every unborn baby has already been loved and cherished by God.
This may sound refreshingly positive in the midst of the headlines we have seen. Frequently, the anti-abortion debate focuses on the horrific, violent nature of abortion. This is important to share. However, we need to also share the importance and impact of every unborn baby's life.
Indeed, we need not only to abolish abortion, but also to reframe and refocus on the immense importance of every life and the blessings of every child. Every unborn child. Fact: Every unborn baby is wanted by God and those who desperately desire to adopt. And every expectant mother is loved. From that foundation, let me share how babies (even before they are born) positively impact the world.
7 Ways Unborn Babies Positively Impact the WorldEven Before Birth, Every Life Possesses Profound Worth. Yes, Every Life. 1. First, an unborn baby infuses greater purpose and passion in parents, families, and friends to accomplish what is most important in life. Goals suddenly take on greater meaning. Many people feel inspired to fulfill their God-given potential to model well to the coming child. New life catalyzes new growth.
If the news of an unborn baby is not received with joy by certain people, it unveils needs in others and insights on how to pray and plan better situations and relationships for mother and child. In this way, an unborn baby improves life for the mother. 2. The knowledge that a family and community will teach and demonstrate life to the baby is equal to creating what the new child will consider "normal." Creating a "normal" template supplies great motivation to both parents, those in their families, etc. Bad habits previously tolerated may become eliminated. After all, babies imitate adults (mirror neurons are amazing!) and some unhealthy habits are far from suitable imitating material. 3. Against a dark tapestry of world problems, unborn babies remind us that God is always creating and doing good things -even if they aren't obviously seen (e.g. in the womb). In our situation, 2020 is when we found out we were finally going to have a baby in February 2021. This news was shared with others and we were deeply moved to hear friends cheer up instantly. Repeatedly. And some even said it was the best news of the year. It moved us greatly. Our baby's life mattered and offered good news to anticipate. 4. Unborn babies supply reminders of God's ongoing unique plans for each of us. Whether a parent or not, each person can be reminded of the utter miracle of life! Each of us was created by God against all kinds of odds. Each of us was created by God on purpose and for His purpose. No baby is unwanted by Him. And every adult is wanted by Him, too. 5. In a negative world, unborn babies possess countless positive possibilities. Interactions by mother and the unborn baby begin a profound bonding process which predates the birth date. These interactions begin building the profound launching pad for development and overall contributions by the child to the world. From the womb, the baby begins to prepare to change his/her world. 6. Unborn babies fill people with expectation and challenge them to grow as well in new roles while enhancing pre-existing roles. Today, an expectant mother can utilize myriad resources and continue to lead a balanced life with greater vitality and compassion. Sleeplessness, pregnancy symptoms, and other challenges help the mother to discover new ways to relate and make the most of her time. 7. Unborn babies remind us of God's love. God sent His Son as a baby. And the first person to innately recognize Him was John the Baptist, another unborn baby. God communicates with His creation. God loves us. And unborn babies remind us of these desperately needed facts.
In conclusion, savor the words of our Creator to Jeremiah: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,And before you were born I consecrated you;I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.” God bless every expectant mother and unborn child. And may He use each of us to share His Word with love to a hurting world. -Stacie Ruth Stoelting Hudzinsk

Ways to Save Babies from Abortion and
Help Post-Abortive Mothers Heal
7. Contact your Congressmen and state legislators and urge them support anti-abortion legislation.
8. Write letters to the editor. Make your voice heard about your pro-life position. Explain why abortion is wrong, of course. But also explain why each unborn baby is a treasure!
9. Vote for pro-life candidates. Research and support proven anti-abortion candidates. Help elect pro-life men and women to office.
10. Pray. Pray for our politicians and that Roe v. Wade will be repealed. Pray for the mothers whose hearts were broken by abortion. Pray for families whose tables are not as full as a result of abortion. Prayer is powerful!
11. Support ministries and organizations that are bravely fighting to stop abortion and to protect all life. Here are a few worthy pro-life groups worth your attention: National Right to Life, John Paul II Medical Research Institute, Embryo Adoption Services, Susan B. Anthony List, Alliance Defending Freedom, Priests for Life, And Then There Were None, and many more.
12. Remember that innocent, unborn children are depending on you to give them a voice. Cry out for the babies that never cry! Reach out to your neighbors who may need your support to choose life!
