She Survived Six Attempts On Her Life

Jun 7, 2024

At age 21, Lauren Eden learned for the first time the real story behind her own premature birth at 26 weeks. Her mother finally told Lauren that she tried to abort her six times. With each attempt, her efforts failed.

Lauren’s mom was an 18-year-old college student, and her boyfriend was a senior in college. The first time Lauren’s mom tried to go to an abortion clinic, “a large cloud of fog settled right in front of the car” her boyfriend was driving. The child’s father, who did not want the abortion explained, said the fog was like nothing he had never seen before or ever saw again. He couldn’t see where he was going and eventually had to turn around.

On the sixth attempt, Lauren’s mom began the D&E procedure where the cervix is dilated and then the baby is ripped apart limb by limb. But Lauren’s dad prayed and it paid off in the nick of time. After her cervix was dilated, Lauren’s mom changed her mind and gave birth.

Against all odds, baby Lauren survived and thrived. Now her parents have been married for 40 years and have five grandsons!

EVERY life is precious. However, the most extreme abortion bill ever just reached 211 confirmed votes in the U.S. House. At the end of last month, Rep. Tim Kennedy added his co-sponsorship to the “Women’s Health Protection Act” (HR 12 and S 701). This bill will allow abortion at any time, for any reason, up to birth.

Due to multiple vacancies in Congress, the pro-death abortion lobby needs just a few Republicans to join them, and every state will be forced to allow unlimited abortion up to birth. We cannot allow this to happen. Please, fax Congress now, demanding they VOTE NO on HR 12 and S 701, then read on. — Mat

HR 12 is so far reaching it will override EVERY state law. No one — not insurance providers, religious institutions, or people of faith— will be able to withdraw from participating in this horrific life-ending atrocity.

HR 12 will even erase restrictions on gruesome late-term abortions that rip off limbs or partial birth abortions performed on children partially delivered.

Abortions can be done at any “medical location” by “any physician, certified nurse-midwife, nurse practitioner, pharmacist, or physician assistant.”

Every abortion ends the life of a child and destroys something precious in the mother. Only by the grace and forgiveness of our Lord may the hurt, pain, and guilt be healed. DEATH is never the answer.

Make no mistake, laws make a huge difference. Since its state restrictions on abortion went into effect, Arkansas reported 0 abortions! In Indiana, abortions dropped by 98%. Laws can have a huge influence in the lives of babies like Lauren.

+ + What this bill will do ...

HR 12 states: “A health care provider has a right ... and a patient has a corresponding right under this Act to terminate a pregnancy after viability when, in the good-faith medical judgement of the treating health care provider, it is necessary to protect the life or health of the patient.”

This “life or health” terminology has been stretched to mean anything, thus allowing abortion for any reason, at any time, up to and during birth.

In addition, this bill explicitly declares: “A State may provide additional circumstances under which post viability abortions are permitted.” This will allow for states to undo ANY restrictions on late-term abortions. This will override the current federal law that bans partial-birth abortion. This is sick!

HR 12 demands that health care providers must provide “contraceptive services; testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections; [and] LGBTQ health services.”

If we lose this battle and HR 12 passes, not one pro-life law will survive. This bill could even undo health and safety regulations.

We cannot mix the blood of babies into the mortar of America’s infrastructure. America will not survive as a nation if we kill our children. God’s judgment will not sleep forever.

We are in the fight of our lives. There is no greater cause than to fight for life. Liberty Counsel Action is working tirelessly in Washington and in various states. We have a huge battle in Florida where abortion will be on the November ballot.

We MUST stop HR 12 from making abortion a federal “right.” Tell Congress: STOP FORCING ABORTION ON US! VOTE NO on HR 12 and S 701.

LCA is working on Capitol Hill to stop HR 12, and we are working across the nation to educate and activate people to stand for life. We need your prayers and support for this cause. Florida, now one of the most pro-life states in the nation, is a prime example of the battle ahead. If the November ballot initiative passes, Florida will become the most extreme abortion state in the nation. Here, there is no middle ground. And we have less than FIVE MONTHS until the life-and-death vote.

This is a battle we must win! Please take advantage of our Challenge Grant, which will DOUBLE the impact of your gift. Support Liberty Counsel Action today.
