The promise of a new baby always brings such joy and anticipation. But that joy can turn to sorrow when Mama hears the devastating news that something is wrong. Join us to hear the extraordinary true story of how one woman pressed on through her challenging pregnancy, a decision that shocked medical staff and her professional colleagues. Hear how she learned to defend the dignity and worth of her unborn child and how her child’s life taught our guest to love the vulnerable, treasure the unlovely, and face fear with dignity and hope.
Join us for a full hour of news! We start with the headlines of the day and then move into a discussion on what potentially happens with aborted baby parts and what some people are doing to stop it. We round out the hour with an overview of the results of Election Day. From state referenda to the make-up of the Congress, we have it all for you!
