Abortion supporters regularly perpetuate the lie that the pro-life movement only cares about children before they are born. But one tweet – and the viral response to it – is proving them wrong.

On May 15, Sarah Tuttle-Singer, an editor for the Times of Israel, dared pro-lifers to tell her on Twitter how they “personally” have aided mothers in need. Her tweet reacted to the pro-life support of Alabama’s new law that considers abortion a felony offense in most cases.

Gloria Purvis, the host of EWTN’s Morning Glory, stressed that not only did she improve mothers’ lives but also they improved hers.
