“It’s a national tragedy that so many physicians recommend abortion for babies facing a challenge during pregnancy. It’s even more alarming the degree with which they push their opinion on parents. I want this program to equip parents with the knowledge they are not alone and that they can and should reject medical advice that includes ending the life of their baby.“ —Brad Mattes
