A mother in England gave birth to twins at 22 weeks of pregnancy after doctors assured her that they couldn’t be born alive since following laws supporting abortions, they state that a fetus is viable after 24 weeks, according to the Daily Mail.

Up until the moment they ascertained the babies were alive, doctors referred to the procedure, not as childbirth, but “kept calling it a ‘miscarriage,'” said Jade Crane, the 39-year-old mother.

“I didn’t know where I was at first, until I opened a cupboard and saw all these tiny clothes—the ones bereaved parents can put on their babies to say goodbye. They’d told me that would happen.”

“I’d be given “comfort care,” handed the babies, and I would be able to spend as long as I wanted with them, taking pictures, as mementos,” Jade recounted.

Babies born at 22 weeks are not classified as legally viable, and sometimes medical intervention is not offered. But these twins had taught the world a lesson and surprised the world with their birth when doctors gave them zero chance of life.

Mrs. Crane and her husband Steve had been trying to have children for 11 years, and before this pregnancy, where Harry and his sister Harley were born, they had suffered a few miscarriages and two ectopic pregnancies, so they thought the outcome would be the same. 

But the miracle of life came along to defy the limited knowledge of human science once again, and little Harry and Harley are testaments to that.

“They’re doing absolutely amazing. They’re doing all the things that we were told they wouldn’t do—they’re crying, they’re surviving.”

Harley, “the fighter,” as Jade calls her, weighed just 1.1 pounds when she was born on Oct. 26, while her brother Harry came into the world an hour later, weighing 1.14 pounds. 

The twins face several health issues due to their premature birth and have undergone many surgeries in their little lives, but are managing to navigate each of them. 

Each time, the doctors warned the fearful parents that there was a good chance they would not survive the interventions. “Look, Jade, we are going to do this, but we haven’t got the medical evidence, so we just don’t know,” the mother recounted.

“But now, we are at the stage where they do have medical evidence, and hopefully for those premature babies who will be born in the future, what they have done to keep Harley and Harry alive will be the medical evidence,” Jade said confidently. 

Both babies were on ventilators from the start and tube-fed with a special formula. However, the family is optimistic that they will bring them home close to their original due date of Feb. 24. 

The birth of these twins below what those who promote abortion as a right say is the threshold of viability for a fetus shows once again how limited human science is in the face of God’s laws.

In countries where abortion is legalized, the system considers babies under 24 weeks non-viable, aborting them. 

In the U.S., the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision granted a constitutional right to abortion before what is considered a viable fetus, usually around 24 weeks of pregnancy.

However, several pro-life states in the U.S. are fighting to overturn Roe v. Wade. One of them is Texas, whose legislation, which went into effect on Sept. 1, 2021, is now the state’s governing law, bans abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy.

According to data recently released by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, abortions have dropped 60% since the law protecting life after a fetal heartbeat is detected.

A Supreme Court ruling expected later this year keeps pro-lifers optimistic that it could reverse the legality of U.S. abortion.
