Help Us Fight for LIFE!

by | Nov 28, 2017

Think about this…

She is floating in a darkened womb. She hears her mother’s every heartbeat. At 22 weeks old, her own heart beats strong – it’s beating fast and she continues to grow. She’s alive, full of promise and hope – we fight for her right to life.

His mother looks down at him and brushes the hair back from his forehead. The soft, rhythmic sound of the ventilator interrupts her thoughts. She glances away from his face long enough to look up at the cardiac monitor and she smiles – his heart also beats strong. He’s alive and a mother hopes – we fight for his right to life.

The flowers on her nightstand have wilted in the week since her 86th birthday. She doesn’t always remember specifics and sometimes she gets confused, but she knows enough to refuse the Do Not Resuscitate order the nurses at her assisted living facility are insisting she sign. She’s healthy, she’s alive – and we fight for her right to life.

The accident took his ability to walk but not his drive. He pushed himself across a wooden stage to accept his college diploma, he “danced” at his daughter’s wedding in a light-weight aluminum wheelchair, and at his retirement party his family gifted him the latest motorized version. But now he worries about insurance denying needed surgery because of his disability. He has a beautiful retirement ahead, he’s alive – and we fight for his right to life.

On #GivingTuesday, when you donate to National Right to Life you allow us to vigorously fight for the rights of people like those mentioned above. People who want to live, who deserve to live, who will fight to live. When you donate to our #GivingTuesday campaign you are giving the best gift of all – the gift of life.

Please contribute today. Help give the very best gift of all. You can and will make a difference.
