Hailed as “pro-life heroes” by the Christian Broadcasting Network, a Texas couple fostered 173 newborn infants over a period of 36 years.
Burrell and Leanna Lankford decided years ago that they wanted to become foster parents. After clearing it with their biological children, they began, according to CBN.
Fostering and adoption are often promoted as the alternative to abortion, but Americans are in desperate need of both. The Lankford’s certainly did their fair share.
“It all started in January 1976,” Lankford said. “Looking back, the now-77-year-old Austin, Texas, native said his wife, who died five years ago, ‘brought the issue up before the family and decided that she wanted to be a foster parent, so she asked me and the kids if we would be interested and everybody said ‘yes.'”
A neighbor discovered Lankford’s incredible feat when visiting the widower. There were baby photos all over the home.
“Looking at the number of pictures, she asked a question: ‘Well, how many?'” the neighbor asked Lankford. “He said, ‘over a hundred.'”
His neighbor submitted the story to a local radio station, where Lankford first received media attention.
He gave all the credit to his late wife:
For his part, Lankford insists fostering so many babies wasn’t really an inconvenience because they just fell into a routine.
“Feeding, bathing and getting ’em dressed,” he said. “You’ve got to give all the credit to the foster moms. In my case, I worked during the day. [My wife was] here all day long, working with the babies.”
With two biological kids of their own, Lankford said the family went about their normal business and the babies just tagged along. There were several times, in fact, the family had three babies at one time.

Senate Democrats Shut Down Late-Term Abortion Bans, Born-Alive Protections
This party supports late-term abortion.
Senate Democrats blocked a vote on two major pro-life bills in the legislative chamber on Tuesday, leaving little doubt that the party is wholly united behind support for unlimited abortion.
The two laws that were blocked were the The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protections Act.
The first law would prohibit abortion being enacted upon children who survive abortion procedures. Some Democrats have suggested that it’s fair game to carry out ghoulish abortion procedures on babies who are alive.
The second bill would’ve instituted bans on abortions enacted upon fetuses that are capable of pain. Such a ban would affect late-term abortions, most notably rare procedures that are carried out on fetuses that are more than 20 weeks into development.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer chalked up the blocking of the pro-life bills as a political move. He claimed the consideration of laws was merely a gambit to embarrass Democrats.
In remarks after the bills were blocked from a formal floor vote, he seemed wholly unreflective as to why it was right to dismiss legislation that would institute relatively tame and common-sense restrictions on widely unpopular late-term abortion procedures.
Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey, West Virginia’s Joe Manchin and Alabama Doug Jones were the only Democrats to vote to bring the Born Alive law up for further consideration on the Senate floor. The laws would’ve required 60 votes to advance beyond the Senate flilbuster, a margin they both failed to reach.
Republican Senators blasted the chamber’s Democrats for their extremist unwillingness to consider even the most mild of restrictions on late-term abortion.
Today the Senate was asked an important question: where is your line for protecting life? Is it when the child can feel pain in the womb? Or even after the child is born? https://t.co/B16HQ1ldzQ

The votes to shut down pro-life laws that are fundamentally limited in scope makes it hard for Democrats to argue that they aren’t the party of Ralph Northam.
