Edmonton March for Life commemorates infant's life

The B.C. Catholic has a story from Edmonton's March for Life rally about Crystal and Adam Charbonneau who bravely refused to abort their anencephalic baby. Chris Miller from the Western Catholic Reporter has the story:
A year ago, Crystal Charbonneau was pregnant and, at 20 weeks gestation, was diagnosed with an anencephalic baby. Knowing their baby would die, she and her husband Adam from St. Paul were offered abortion, but refused.

At 34 weeks, Caleb was born naturally at 4:37 p.m. on May 12, 2011 — coinciding with last year’s March for Life. He died at 6:30 p.m. that day.

This year’s March for Life, held May 17 in Edmonton, was a commemoration of Caleb Charbonneau.

“We knew from the very beginning that God had a plan for Caleb’s life,” Crystal said.
