A progressive website focused on sharing “good news” faced backlash after posting a now-deleted story of a same-sex couple who underwent a triple-abortion.
The women, who married in Seattle in 2013 before same sex-unions were legal in their home state of Arizona, decided they wanted to have a child. After a few attempts at artificial insemination, a doctor phoned the couple, informing them of “REALLY POSITIVE” lab work, the story on Love What Matters reads. The five-week ultrasound revealed not one, not two, but five beating hearts.
After being confronted with “instant panic,” “worry, and stress” at the prospect of having five babies, the couple decided to travel to California for a selective abortion because no one in Arizona would perform a “selective reduction.” The mother had to carry all five of the babies to 12 weeks to reduce the risk of ending the entire pregnancy, according to the submission. At 12 weeks, a baby is almost as big as a lime, has a developing digestive system, bone marrow, and hormones, according to maternity website “what to expect.”
The mother wrote:
So, I took six amniocentesis needles through my abdomen to penetrate the fetuses that the doctor chose to reduce. Six! It was 25 minutes of toe-curling, heart-breaking, hand squeezing pain. I’ve never cried so hard. Broken. Despite the traumatic pregnancy story, I am truly blessed. I know we made the right decision for our forever family. We are blessed with two beautiful children and we are forever grateful. Leo and Hunter were born completely healthy and right on time.
The couple is now raising the twins, who were diagnosed with autism at three-years-old, according to the submission.
The story was posted to the media site’s official Instagram page for two days before it was taken down on Monday. While it was still posted, the story garnered a negative response from commenters, including the pro-life non-profit Live Action.
A few hours later, the story was completely erased from the website. According to an Instagram story on Live Action founder Lila Rose’s social media page, Love What Matters received backlash from thousands of pro-life supporters.

Same sex couples are all about sex not procreation. If they do want to reproduce, they treat the baby/babies as commodities they have purchased and can therefore do with the babies as they will. Homosexual couplings are anti-life, they’re not about love, just getting what they want regardless of consequence.
It still holds true that the best place to raise, nurture, and educate children is within the traditional family. Married father and mother, biological parents raising their biological children together, that’s the way God intended it. Time to stop messing with His plan.
And if these lesbians knew about the autism of the two children allowed to be born, they probably would have aborted them too. So what do they want, sympathy for having two “imperfect” kids, or for getting condemnation for killing the three others? What a disgusting story.
The two remaining children might have been harmed when the doctor killed the others. They all ought to be in jail. And as a native Californian, I am so tired of trash like this coming to my state to do their dirty work, and expecting decent Californians to pay for it.
This is so freaking evil that there are no words to describe how evil it is, and the Jezebel whines about feeling pain when those children felt far more. Deliberately deprive the children of fathers and murder the rest.
And the same for the unscrupulous fathers who donated the sperm, and the doctors who did this. Evil, evil, evil.
Denizens of the Outer Darkness.
This is beyond words.
We know … the whole world lies
in the grasp of the Evil One.
1 John 5:19
amerika – where you can have it ALL
no matter how many children you kill
a cannibal culture
it would be WRONG to fight to save it
we may need to die to kill it
These murderers and their “selective reduction” abortion doctor who murdered those children– have no moral consciences! They all should be serving huge jail terms. I think abortion should be illegal. And LGBT “marriage” and child-rearing should both be illegal. I think LGBT pervert sex practices, especially in a home with children– should also be illegal. And I also think sperm donating, petri dish fertilization, IVF, and storing “leftover” fertilized eggs should be illegal. Sadly, if these deviant, evil, lesbian “daughters of Darkness” had known that the two children who survived were autistic– they probably would have told the Abortion Doctor to kill all of the children. God have mercy.
Still waiting for that asteroid to destroy earth anytime.
I have to wonder if the soldiers who died for America in WWII would have thought it was worth dying for if they had known this is what America would become. I have to say I wouldn’t think it worth dying for.
Democrats have ruined America.
This is what happens when sexual perverts are given “rights” … may the souls of those children who were killed be sitting next to Christ when He judges those two lesbians.
I’d be wary of any autism diagnosis in these times, and in fraternal twins (quintuplets). The whole story is fishy.
It is obvious she did not tell the whole story. What procedure was used that caused her to conceive quintuplets — which are rare in normal pregnancies, but common when produced by artificial means — was not posted. Quintuplets would show up on any ultrasound pictures, which she must have had first. Amniocentesis, mentioned in the report, is used to test for any problems or abnormalities.
This story remind me of Hitler’s world and his medical attempts to “cleanse” all of humanity of imperfections and the unwanted for whatever reason.
Today, I read that the Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in favor of the rights of Catholic Charities of Philadelphia to deny adoptions of children to “LGBTs.” Good news! Now, the Supreme Court needs to re-instate the correct definition of Marriage in America, as the union of one man and one woman! And there should be laws that prohibit child adoptions to “LGBTs.” And further– “LGBT” deviant sex acts should be illegal in the home, especially if children are present or live there. All “LGBT” info and sex acts, and transgender surgery info, should be illegal to teach or discuss with underage kids, and illegal in all schools, K-12. And only basic biological facts of life must be legally allowed to teach kids, in only one short class, in a high school only– with boys and girls separated, and a short moral lesson included, that respect for girls on a date is a “must,” and kids must be chaste, until Marriage. Parents must teach “sex-ed” at home, along with morality. That has always been my belief.
Catholic Social Services (not Catholic Charities), foster children (not adoptions).
Yes. You are correct.
Why dies the Catholic Church totally ignore the clear Biblical definition of when life begins. The Old Testsment does provide instructions on how to induce a miscarriage (abortion). Jesus weeps at the hate and evil promoted by the radical conservatives who claim to be Christian.
Michael– The Bible is often misunderstood. It concerns the ancient Jews, who had some pretty harsh penalties for sin, in the Old Testament, in Mosaic Law! For example– a woman caught in adultery would be sentenced to death. In Numbers 5:11-31, there is the story of the “Test for Unfaithfulness,” or the “jealousy offering.” If a man wasn’t sure that his wife had been unfaithful, he would bring her to the priest, who would make a special, consecrated bitter concoction, which she would then drink. If guilty, her belly would swell, she would get very sick, and would be cursed to miscarry and becone sterile. But if she was innocent, the nasty drink would have no effect. God punished the Israelites in many different ways, when they sinned. Remember the story of King David’s aduultery, when he conspired to have the beloved husband of Bathsheba, Uriah, killed in battle, due to his lust for Bathsheba? The first child of King David and Bathsheba died, as punishment by God, for King David’s sins. When Jesus came, He introduced the new concept of Love and Mercy for sinners. Christ came as the fulfillment of the old Jewish Mosaic Law and the prophets– and gave us His New Law of Love.
Michael, my post of June 17 at 5:27pm reflects only my own opinion. I have seen some Protestants and pro-abortion “Catholics” and some Jews, also, who see this topic completely differently.But I just gave my own beliefs on the subject. I am no Biblical scholar.
I do not believe that God ever wills or desires that a child be aborted, or killed, for any reason. I believe that for anyone to kill a child, for any reason, is simply– murder.
God caused the deaths of the firstborn in Egypt.
All except the babies deserve to be in the “9th Circle of Hell”.
How very judgmental.
Nope. The truth speaks loud and clear.
Would you judge Hitler, Mao, or Stalin? If no, why?
They are already judged.
Those pictures are pictures of love. I don’t see any sin there in those pictures.
Well, no. They did not put the pictures of the sins on here.
Put the pictures in their context and realize the three deaths caused by the two lesbians. The babies are innocent but will suffer at the hands of such selfish “parents” who willingly killed their siblings and are purposely raising them without their father. For shame!
You mean– disordered desires. Lust. Sex perversion. Immorality. Evil. Demonic. Not “love.” Yes, they are deliberately choosing to place themselves in Hell, with Satan as their false “god!” No “human cruelty
and judgment.” Yes, God does judge the souls of mankind.
I can’t help but think…if the discussion was about a litter of puppies or kittens, and two of the litter were chosen to be saved, and the “extras” were thrown in a bag and drowned, or, in reality…ripped to shreds and disposed of however…would there be more “outrage”? Would those supporting a “right to choose” be ok with that choice? Would they defend their stance (aka “choice”) as strongly as they do when we’re talking about puppies and kittens as opposed to unborn human babies?
Mathew 6 22-23
“The eyes are the lamp of the body. If your eyes are sound, your whole body
will be filled with light. However, if your eyes are diseased, your whole body
will be in darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great will
that darkness be.”
Maybe look at the pictures from a different angle.
Stop trying to “gaslight us”. It won’t work. The Lord Jesus meant by that passage that we are to avoid looking in lust at other people until we commit sin with them, or to look at something of beauty or usefulness and value so long that we actually steal it when it is not ours to have. We are to practice custody of the eyes, not try to deceive ourselves that something that is evil is good.
Unless the picture above is fake and not a real picture of the two in the article, one woman is pregnant and the other woman falsely claiming fatherhood. No woman can be a father. Period.
I think you misunderstood Eagle Eye Cody. I think he rightly used the passage. It is about virtue, values, honesty, integrity, righteousness, and holiness not lust or covetousness, although those could enter into it.
If you don’t see anything wrong with same sex relationships, IVF and abortion, you aren’t going to understand what is wrong with this picture.
If I misunderstood Eagle Eye Cody, I apologize, but his last sentence was very confusing. I do not understand what he means by “maybe looking at the pictures from a different angle”. Why would I even want to do that?
I understood it to be a comment to the person who said they did not see sin in the pictures. And that they should look at it from a different angle.
My post today, June 18, at 4:11 pm was a reply to “Eagle Eye Cody’s” post today, June 18, at 10:05 pm.
I looked up the LoveWhatMatters website and it is feel good stories but there is no concern about morality. Divorced-starting dating-now pregnant 7 months-got engaged-now I’m happy stories.
Catholics can’t live and “love” this way. We know better. Love IS what matters but sin is not love. God is love.
One big problem is that God seems totally absent from the world. You can clamor all you want about how the world is evil and people are going against God, but God doesn’t seem to be doing anything about it and he doesn’t even seem present. So maybe nothing really matters.
There is a family whose child has gone missing and they show faith.
There is a family who lost a child in a road rage shooting who shows faith.
George Floyd’s family shows faith.
Families whose members are killed in the military show faith.
You lost a job? Or a child? You didn’t have food today?
You obviously have a computer or phone. God provided you with that. Thank Him.
I think the problem is you don’t count your blessings. Instead of blaming God, try thanking Him. Instead of grumbling and doubting, realize that there is great Good in the world and God is here present. God isn’t the one doing the evil.
Thank you God for this person who is reminding us of the great gift of faith, one of the three things which remain.
I bought my computer. God didn’t do anything to provide me with it.
The only way that you could have a computer that God did not provide you with was if you stole it.
Wrong, He gave you the wherewithal to have the brains and means to buy it. Tell Him thanks.
