Maybe you’ve seen her viral video”It’s a Baby!” making the common sense case for respecting and protecting the lives of children before they are born.

But you very likely are not prepared to hear Lisa Smiley’s testimony of finding God’s love in the midst of a devastating prenatnal diagnosis for her son Zeke. Lisa chose life and her poignant story beautifully illustrates so many principles at the center of the abortion debate:

  • Zeke’s diagnosis was rare and fatal-he was born with only half a heart
  • The medical community’s pressure on families to abort
  • The pressure for euthanasia after his heart attack at five
  • Lisa’s strong conviction that our children are not our property
  • The lessons she’s taken away from Zeke’s time here on earth
Join us for our conversation with Lisa Smiley on Cradle My Heart Radio the week of Dec 4.
