Amid all of the hardships and disharmony in America right now it is life-affirming to hear that there are communities of people who still believe in the hopefulness of babies’ lives. That message will come bursting out of the screen in the form of a hug to the reader who discovers the story of Emily and Nathan Berning from Fort Wayne, Indiana, whose combined life mission is to provide assistance to abortion-minded women and to rescue their pre-born babies.
“When a life is saved from abortion, the ripples are incredible,” said Emily Berning. “Future generations are alive because people chose life. We help people choose life.”
“At Let The Live, we say that whoever saves a life saves the world entire,” Emily Berning told me about the motivation behind the community she is building with her husband, between 35-40 paid staff and over 100 volunteers whose nonprofit work is focused on counseling and providing financial assistance to women who are facing abortion, due to lack of funds to keep a baby alive.
“We believe that 73% of women get abortions because of financial insecurity, and so we built a new pro-life group based on simply helping women get through that financial crisis,” she told me.
“What is different about our group is that donors can see that they are saving the life of a child and helping a Mother. With other groups, there may be frustrated over not seeing an impact. With us we can show that where someone puts their money or their heart, they have saved a life. People see updates of the progress and of the babies born, and sometimes even meet the Mothers,” she said. “We go along with these Moms on their journey and see the babies born.”
“WE CROWDSOURCE TO PAY FOR THE NEEDS OF A MOM AND HELP HER PAY BILLS”
Let Them Live is a verified 501 (c) (3).
Proof of their work is on social media, and videos of moving testimonies are on YouTube.
“At let them live we use video to show a woman’s story, from her point of view because we think that helps break the stigma around women who are facing abortion. When people can see the human struggles, they are more likely to understand the hardships,” Emily told me.

SHE NEEDED A DAY OF REST
Jackie a 30-year-old with 6 children, faced a pregnancy during the hardships of COVID, homeschooling 6 children and job loss. According to her testimony, she found Let Them Live online at a moment of sheer desperation, and because of the financial help that was given to her and her husband, she was able to fend off the pressure to abort her child.
Sabbath Rain Russel the 7th child of her family was born.
“As hard as 2020 was, I fought for this baby. Let them live saved me, my husband and my family. Sabbath Rain is perfect,” Jackie said.
SHE FELL ASLEEP BY THE OCEAN, SLEEPING IN HER CAR
Atoria struggled with what to do with her pregnancy when she decided to abort her baby; she felt torn at the end of her rope. After hearing a song about the broken bonds of missing someone, she was looking for signs to make her stop seeking the abortion.
She was 19 weeks pregnant when she went to have an ultrasound, which sent her looking for help to Let Them Live.
“When I was lost, they got to the point where they just asked me to give them a chance to let them help me. Let Them Live got on a plane to come help a stranger,” Astoria said in her video.
Let Them Live is expecting the next installment of their series to arrive soon promising another story of a Mom who chose life after having love “shouted’ at her, from the Let Them Live Community, instead of voices.
That is what Let Them Life does. It lets Moms be who they are supposed to be, with just a little help from their friends.
