On Thursday morning, before I'd even brushed my teeth, I helped save the lives of more than 100 human children.

I achieved this remarkable feat during what might have been most productive 15 minutes of my lifetime, and possibly the most heroic use of an iPhone in recent history. With the help of an app developed by the anti-abortion Human Coalition, it was easy! I saved real-live babies from the clutches of money-grubbing abortion providers with just a couple dozen swipes of my right thumb, as if I were paging through Tinder or wiping a little schmutz off the screen of my phone.

You too can be a baby-saving hero. Your superpower awaits at your favored app store, searchable under "Human Coalition." The organization, which calls abortion "the worst holocaust in human history" and hopes it will become "unthinkable and unavailable in our lifetime," runs crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) in the Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Dallas, and Raleigh, North Carolina, metro areas and has connections to more than 30 other CPCs around the country. On the Human Coalition app, users can browse a feed that purports to tally real women who are engaging with these centers. "Someone considering an abortion in Charlotte, North Carolina contacted a center," one feed entry reads. "Someone considering abortion in Cleveland, Ohio scheduled an appointment with a center," reads another.
