The Texas case of a woman demanding an abortion is making national headlines.

And pro-abortion forces and some weak-kneed self-described conservatives are using the case to attack pro-lifers.

But conservative commentator Allie Beth Stuckey was flooded with parents who chose life even when doctors told them to abort.

Allie Beth Stuckey is a wildly popular and outspoken Christian and pro-life advocate.

Honoring parents who made the choice for life

Stuckey, who hosts Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey on BlazeTV, recently took to social media, asking for the opportunity to “honor parents who made the brave choice to give their unborn babies life despite devastating prenatal diagnoses.”

Stuckey’s tweet was in response to the story of Kate Cox, a 31-year-old Texas woman going to great lengths to kill her unborn child through an abortion. 

Cox’s unborn child was diagnosed with full trisomy 18, known as Edwards’ syndrome, a genetic condition which, though survivable, but can lead to death within one year in 90% of cases.

The new pro-life laws in Texas that protect the unborn do not permit abortion in cases of fetal anomaly. 

The lone exception to the Texas heartbeat bill is “a life-threatening physical condition aggravated by, caused by, or arising from a pregnancy that places the [mother] at risk of death or poses a serious risk of substantial impairment of a major bodily function unless the abortion is performed or induced.” 

Cox has tried to argue that carrying her child to term may threaten her future fertility.

Ruling to respect the choice of life

But the Texas state supreme court has ruled that Cox could not legally obtain an abortion in Texas under the heartbeat law. 

Pro-life laws in the Lone Star State “reflect the policy choice that the Legislature has made, and the courts must respect that choice,” the court said in its decision. 

Cox is so hell-bent on killing her baby that she has now reportedly decided to head out of state to have the abortion elsewhere.

While the court’s ruling focused mainly on the nuances of the statute, Stuckey decided to focus instead on the importance of valuing all human life.

And for Stuckey and other actual pro-lifers this includes unborn babies, such as Kate Cox’s child, even if they may have a traumatic condition.

“It is possible to treat bab[ies] with fatal diagnoses with dignity,” Stuckey tweeted out. “Parents do it every day. They deliver them, hold them, and tell them that they love them, allowing the baby to die in their arms.”

Stuckey then took the bold step of inviting parents with such stories to share them with her on X, “[w]ith a photo if you’re willing.”

Her followers did not disappoint. 

Stuckey’s post was immediately flooded with hundreds of such stories, some of hopeful and joyful perseverance, some with tales of heartbreaking loss, but all of them with the joy and love that comes with choosing the gift of life.

Stuckey’s post already has more than 1,700 likes and over 100 comments, most of which agree with Stuckey’s call to treat fatally ill babies “with dignity” by allowing them to pass away naturally, surrounded by loved ones, not at the hands of an abortionist.
