Grieving Miscarriages, Celebrating Life and Planned Parenthood

There has been yet another disturbing Planned Parenthood video released this week.  We grieve the loss of these little lives.  Instead of writing on the video and issue again, we want to share another point of view.  It’s a story of a couple fighting for life.

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan recently announced on Facebook they are expecting a baby girl.  Over a million people offered their support and congratulations.  The couple also took a moment to share their struggle over the past few years of trying to have a baby, but having multiple miscarriages.

Zuckerberg describes the heartbreaking loss:

“You feel so hopeful when you learn you’re going to have a child. You start imagining who they’ll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they’re gone.”

People are beginning to talk more openly about miscarriage.  However, I can’t imagine bearing that grief while listening to news updates of Planned Parenthood selling ‘fetal tissue.’

Speak kindness over each other.  You never know the depths of joy or heartache the person next to you carries.

“Let whoever is in charge keep this simple question in her head (not, how can I always do this right thing myself, but) how can I provide for this right thing to be always done?” ― Florence Nightingale
