Superbowl Pampers Ad Celebrating Babies - Powerful Pro-Life Video

Life News: While the upcoming Superbowl ads count on puppies and scantily clad women for views, Pampers is counting on something infinitely more precious: babies – both born and unborn.

Pampers’ new ad, A Newborn Journey of Firsts, boasts almost 950,000 views on YouTube since its release earlier this month. With the video’s focus on multiple babies, Pampers aims to show how “every first is significant no matter how small they seem” – “[f]rom the first scan to the first cuddle.”

From the beginning, the video shows a sonogram of a baby giving her first “hello” with a heartbeat playing in the background. The ad progresses to show the touching journey of babies’ and parents’ “firsts” together – from “Your first tears of joy” to “Her first word.”
Ad reads: From the first scan to the first cuddle, every first is significant no matter how small they seem. For both baby and mom, it's a journey full of firsts. And there's nothing more rewarding than experiencing each and every one together.

Here's the Reason Why Thousands Marched for Life in the Cold

GFFL Editor's Note: The following relevant article has been modified as to verb tense and other minor content since the article is shared after the 2015 March for Life. Photo's added by editor.

Trivium School (Lancaster, MA) Students In March for Life
by Sarah Torre, The Daily Signal: Hundreds of thousands of Americans gathered on the National Mall to participate in the annual March for Life, commemorating the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, which invented a constitutional right to abortion-on-demand.

It was primarily a time for somber remembrance. A time to reflect on the enormous cost of abortion by remembering the more than 56 million children who have lost their lives since that fateful day in 1973 and the countless women who still suffer from abortion’s physical and emotional tolls.

Trivium School (Lancaster, MA) Students In March for Life
But the March was also a time for celebration. Because of the hope it presents and the truth it professes, the pro-life movement–against legal, political and cultural odds–has been able to reorient the hearts and minds of an entire generation.

Every day, more than 2,000 pregnancy centers provide counseling, medical services and continued to support to women facing unplanned pregnancies, empowering them with life-affirming options. Across the country, courageous state policymakers continue to pass a record number of commonsense policies protecting women from a dangerous abortion industry and restoring respect for the dignity of both mother and child in law.

Because of those tireless efforts, more and more Americans consider themselves “pro-life” – particularly millennials who will make up a considerable portion of the March today.

Despite the many hard fought victories in law and culture, challenges persist. An ever-encroaching government is trampling on the conscience rights of pro-life Americans and Obamacare continues to find new ways to send taxpayer money to the abortion industry. Embarrassingly permissive laws on late-term abortion have left U.S. policy at odds with the majority of Americans and extreme among developed nations.

Also, the House of Representatives voted and passed the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. The bill would prohibit any federal funds from being used to pay for elective abortion or health benefit plans that cover abortion, including those offered through Obamacare exchanges.

That’s a good and long-overdue step to ensuring that the federal government cannot continue to entangle tax dollars with coverage for life-ending procedures. But it cannot and should not be the last step for this Congress.

The vast majority of Americans – including nearly 60 percent of women – support legislation that would limit dangerous and gruesome late-term abortions after 20 weeks. That’s five months, or halfway through pregnancy, when children can feel pain and women are at increased risk for the negative effects of abortion. Because of national leaders’ failure to advance protections for women and unborn children, the U.S. is currently one of only seven countries – among them North Korea and China – in which elective abortion after 20 weeks is allowed.

Protecting the health of women and the lives of unborn children who are so close to viability is a policy the American people overwhelming support and our collective conscience demands.

The pro-life movement is a winning cause not because it always politically popular or easy, but because it’s a cause built on an undeniable truth: that every human being – from the moment of conception – is a person with inestimable value, dignity and the right to life. We cannot continue to deny that right to youngest and most vulnerable children in our society simply because they are small, dependent, disabled or simply inconvenient.

As the Marches for Life continue, we look forward to the day when the law respects the dignity and value of every human life. It will be a victory won one heart and one policy at a time and sustained by the determination and courage that has characterized the pro-life movement’s efforts for decades.

Why She Marched: A Mom’s Story of Raising Her Daughter With Down Syndrome

by Melissa Quinn and Alex Anderson: For Eileen and Sadie Haupt, this year’s March for Life, centered around the theme “Every Life is a Gift,” held special meaning.
During her pregnancy with Sadie, her second daughter, doctors asked Eileen if she wanted to undergo prenatal testing to see if her child had any health issues. Just as she had done with her first child, Eileen, who was then 39, opted out.

But when Eileen held Sadie in her arms for the first time after giving birth, she noticed something slightly different about her child when looking into her eyes. Sadie’s eyes were puffy, and in her head, Eileen told herself that her newborn had Down Syndrome.

“It’s not to say that it wasn’t emotional—it was emotional at times. But we just adapted pretty well, I think,” Eileen said.

When Sadie was an infant, Eileen stumbled upon a statistic that said 90 percent of babies with Down Syndrome are aborted.

That moved her to action.

She and another mother of a child with Down Syndrome, Leticia Velasquez, started the group Keeping Infants with Down Syndrome in 2008 to raise awareness about the abortion rate of babies with the disorder. They come to Washington, D.C., every year to participate in the March for Life.

“We really felt there needed to be a presence in the march for families who have children with special needs, and in our case Down Syndrome,” Eileen said.

And this year was no different.

More than 15 parents and their children traveled to Washington, D.C., this week to March with KIDS and the hundreds of thousands of other attendees.

Though they, too, came from across the country, the families bonded with one another over their experiences with Down Syndrome. At the March, blue and yellow balloons traveled with the group as a symbol of their efforts to raise awareness about the disorder.

March for Life attendees gathered yesterday in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol for the annual event. The gathering began as an answer to the U.S. Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, and this year’s event marked the 42nd time demonstrators made the 1.5-mile walk.

Students, teachers, nuns, priests and families from all corners of the country came together to march from the National Mall to the Supreme Court, calling for an end to abortion. Millennials donned signs proclaiming themselves the “pro-life generation” and mothers pushing strollers held others calling for an end to the procedure.

For parents struggling with whether to keep their baby after prenatal testing, Eileen has one piece of advice.

“Prenatal tests can tell you a lot,” she said. “But it cannot tell you the love and the joy that child can bring to the community. There’s just no test for that.”
