In light of the horrendous news surrounding Planned Parenthood these days, one woman and her husband decided to do something about it.
It was a heart-wrenching end to a long awaited pregnancy.
When this couple tragically lost their twin baby boys at 22weeks, they decided to share photos of their sons in hopes of showing the world what life inside the womb looks like.
Editor’s note: The images in this story are sensitive and may be unsettling to some readers.
The mother, Heather Ellis, wrote:
I just hope to make people who may be contemplating it to think a little bit more about their choice before doing something so final. I want them to know that there are other options out there, and that every child is special.
Due to cervix complications, the Ellis twins, named Chase and Cooper, were born prematurely at 22 weeks.
KSL reported the heart breaking reality: If they the Ellis twins had been born just two weeks later, medical staff could possibly have saved them.
After birth, the boys lived for about 30 minutes, being held in turn by their mother, father and 6-year-old brother, Cason.
Heather Ellis shared:
“The way I see it is that abortion is taking a child’s life. No matter how far along you are, that fetus is a human with a beating heart who will eventually be born. And for those like me who struggle to have children but want them so badly, it’s so hard for me to comprehend somebody else not feeling the same way.”
It was reported that the Ellis family isn’t looking for sympathy and they don’t want to upset anyone with the photos, but they felt with all the recent news about abortion and Planned Parenthood, sharing the photo of the boys was the one thing they could do to show people the humanity of the preborn. They’re amazed at the response.
Mama Ellis shared:
“It has been so cool to hear other people’s stories, and to hear such positive things and people telling me that my babies have touched their lives.”

Heather, thank you for sharing your beautiful family’s story — it is no doubt touching millions of lives — and only God knows how many lives will be spared. Thank you!
How can we allow anyone to say that beautiful babies such as these don’t deserve the right to live? We pray that the lives of Chase and Cooper inspire expecting mothers to take a stand against abortion and let their children live.
Abortion is murder. Abortion is not the only choice. Our prayer is that women would experience the love, truth, and freedom that Christ brings when you trust in His plan. He always has a plan.
“I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.” Ronald Reagan
