The issue of life took front and center this weekend in New York City's Times Square. In its first "Alive from New York" event, Focus on the Family turned out a massive show of support to protect the unborn. There were live performances and speeches. But the main event was a live 4D ultrasound.
The ultrasound was performed on Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director and now a pro-life activist and the inspiration behind the movie "Unplanned." "This is a baby! This right here is a baby. This right here is a baby! It's not a cat. It's not a parasite. This is a human being with a heartbeat, with its own DNA that is separate from my body. And this baby deserves to live," Johnson told the assembled crowd numbering in the thousands.

In a crowd of well over 10,000 people, we could hear the protestors...until this. The moment when us 3 abortion survivors shared our stories, and a live 4D ultrasound was displayed. Then we heard silence as the humanity of the unborn was SEEN. #alivefromnewyork #abortionsurvivor pic.twitter.com/XDpA2KEAzw— Claire Culwell (@claireculwell) May 5, 2019
