Amazing: Conjoined Twins Saved From Abortion Are Now Thriving

“There was that initial shock, and a lot goes through your head,” Jason admitted. “But pretty quickly, we came to the realization, these are our boys and we’ve got to do what we can do for them.”

Originally, the couple was advised to have an abortion when it was discovered at the end of the first trimester that the twins were conjoined, and according to their GoFundMe page, were pressured several times — but they refused.

END THE PRESSURE


“To us it wasn’t an option. These children are our children they were given to us for a purpose… to protect them. Abortion was never an option,” Jason said.

Instead, the Kroegers traveled from North Carolina to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, one of the best children’s hospitals in the country which had previously separated a pair of conjoined twins. The family was given shelter and care by St. Xavier Catholic Church during their time in Cincinnati.

Elijah and Isaac were born September 5th, a miracle in and of itself, as roughly half of conjoined twins are stillborn. Another 35% die within 24 hours of being born. But the Kroeger twins are alive and thriving, remaining alert, cooing, smiling, and love being held, the GoFundMe page reported.

Unfortunately, Jason explained that his sons cannot be separated, as they share vital organs. But they call the boys a “blessing for the entire family,” and noted that the boys already have distinct personalities.

“Isaac’s kind of mellow and calm, and Elijah’s just grabbing and looking around and wanting to touch everything,” he said. “It’s going to be interesting, seeing them grow up and seeing the different personalities between the two.”

And while the boys can’t be separated, their condition is better than their medical staff expected it would be. Doctors are continuing to evaluate the boys to determine what their next steps will be, and the twins had surgery just a few days ago.

But one thing is clear: these boys have two distinct lives, lives that deserve to be lived, no matter what the future may hold for them.


Every day, couples like the Kroegers are pressured into abortion due to terminal prenatal diagnoses or other stressful circumstances. However, nobody should be told abortion is their only option.

Instead, let’s join together to make sure people in unexpected pregnancy situations are supported and loved so they can make life-affirming choices for their children.

We’re asking pro-lifers around the country to help us end the pressure surrounding abortion once and for all. Sign our pledge today!

DEAR READER

We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.

Don’t just be part of the movement, be part of the solution, and give today.
