Dear Friends,

Joergen Kristiansen likely is not a familiar name. Maybe it should be.

Mr. Kristiansen is the deputy mayor of a community called Krisitansand (yes, I know, the alliterative possibilities are endless). He is also a courageous man who posted a "picture on Facebook showing him holding a plastic doll that is a likeness of an unborn baby at 12 weeks of pregnancy to make a point about how abortion takes the life of a tiny baby."

The inception of life remains a beautiful and profound source of wonder. FRC's Dr. David Prentice, recognized as one of the world's leading cell biologists, recently wrote that "Since the first umbilical cord blood stem cell transplant over 25 years ago, over 600,000 cord blood units have been stored away around the globe for future lifesaving transplants." Cord blood stem cells have been used to treat myriad patients, from tiny children to ailing adults.

Joergen Kristiansen and David Prentice speak different languages, have different backgrounds, and even live on different continents. But they stand as one in the battle for the sanctity for life. I hope you will join all of us at FRC in standing with them.
