American Idol-Pro Life?

These are not 2 terms that would generally go together but I have been pleased at what I have been watching over the past couple of weeks. There have been 3 instances when life has been viewed as precious in just this season. I was surprised at the topics.
The premiere night Paris Tassin shared her story about finding herself in an unplanned pregnancy. If that wasn't complicated enough, the baby was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, which is water on the brain. She was advised to abort her baby because she would be flawed. She chose life for her little girl despite the strikes against her. Check out her audition on youtube

The 2nd was a young man, Chris Medina. His fiance was injured in an accident just 2 months before their wedding. All their hopes and dreams were crushed due to her devastating brain injury. In an time when so many leave their perfect spouses because life with them is too hard and in a time when life is disposable, this was a refreshing story and speaks to Chris's character.

The 3rd example was of a beautiful African American young woman, Adrienne Beasley. She was adopted by a white couple who talked about how well she fit into their family and how she was so special to them. Her dad said that he was "tickled" by her getting a golden ticket.

I know that they aren't doing this on purpose but God used Nebuchadnezzar for His purposes, why can't He use these hugely popular shows to promote how much He values life!
Way to go American Idol!
