Family: LA Congressman Offers Support to Unwed Pregnant Daughter

For You From The Word

Let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. (1 John 3:18, NLT)

For You To Think About

An unplanned pregnancy impacts not only the mother, child, and father – but extended family members as well.

It can happen in life’s most unexpected moments. Maybe your 17-year-old unwed daughter tells you she is pregnant … and you are running for political office.

Such was the case for Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and his wife Laura.

Yet their response was similar to the sentiment expressed by thousands of grandparents-to-be:

“Earlier this year, [my wife] and I learned we will become grandparents,” Cassidy said. “Our children have been the greatest blessing of our lives and we welcome our grandchild as a joyous addition to our family.”

The Cassidys’ decision to surround their daughter and her unborn child with unwavering love and support demonstrate truth in action.

“Our daughter now faces a more challenging future than her peers,” said Cassidy, a medical doctor running for U.S. senate seat. “She has our unconditional love and support.”

For You To Pray

Heavenly Father,
Thank You for those who stand for life not just in word, but show it with their unwavering support for those who face an unplanned pregnancy.
In Jesus name, Amen.
