Sunny Side of The Stream: Doing the Work of Supporting Life

By Aliya Kuykendall Published on July 2, 2022

The stories of those supporting life with practical help are reason to smile. Here are a few encouraging examples.

And of course, some funny videos and memes to brighten your day.

Woman Who Aborted Her Baby as a Teen Now Leads Ministry to Help Teens Who Choose Life

Christa March, founder of Teen Mother Choices International (TMCI), told Faithwire that those in her organization “walk side-by-side” with teen moms who enter their program for long-term support.

“On average a woman is in this program for up to 3.5 years,” March said.

She supports them practically in taking their next steps, like finishing high school, finding childcare and getting a job. She said she started the ministry after noticing teen moms with strollers in the mall and wondering why they weren’t in school and what she could do to help them. But her own journey with the issue of abortion started much earlier.

“I ended up getting pregnant, and … I aborted my child, which really was the catalyst to seriously pushing me downhill,” March said. “But then God miraculously brought me back to Himself and brought my boyfriend to Himself, and we ended up getting married, and we have two more children.”

The mayor of Southlake, Texas, took steps to support life in his city, including hosting a “baby shower drop-off” to “fill the shelves” of  Human Coalition. (Human Coalition’s founder has a pretty cool story, as I found out in a 2019 interview.)

This Resource for Women With a Crisis Pregnancy Was Started by a Former Abortion Facility Director

Loveline provides “support for single moms and women facing unplanned pregnancies, who feel they have exhausted all opportunities for resources in their area. Our hope is to discover the need, uncover hidden resources and connect her with one of our volunteer advocates in her area to help. LoveLine is accessible 24/7/365.”

And now, for some funny videos and memes. Please excuse my terrible puns.

What do cotton candy and the Constitutional basis for “abortion rights” have in common?

They both lack substance. Just ask this raccoon.

If you’re feeling bad for the raccoon, don’t worry: it eventually learned not to wash cotton candy.
