October 2021 – Minnesota state senator Julia Coleman (R) faced some shocking news while pregnant with her twin boys. During her pregnancy, one of her sons, Charles, was diagnosed with selective intrauterine growth restriction that caused him not to grow properly. Doctors suggested to Coleman and her husband Jacob that abortion was the best option to help the other baby grow.
“At one point, doctors told us we could increase James’ chance of survival if we killed Charles,” said Coleman. “Jacob and I both insistently said: ‘That’s not on the table.’ We were never going to choose between our kids. We’re incredibly pro-life. That’s when you lean on your faith, and you trust that God has a bigger plan.”
The twins, Charles and Jacob, were delivered on May 18 at 33 weeks. After spending only 27 days in NICU, the boys went home and are doing well.
