I was fortunate enough to be in the second row, center stage, when this great young couple spoke at the Students for Life of America conference on January 26.


Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra were made famous on MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” in 2009 when they decided to place their daughter Carly for adoption. MTVcontinued to track the couple in its “Teen Mom” series through 2012.

Since then the two have become strong advocates for adoption, speaking around the country at high school and college campuses.

And lately, Catelynn and Tyler have become more outspoken advocates for the sanctity of preborn human life as well, much to the chagrin of abortion pushers.

I don’t think video is available yet of their speech at SFLA’s conference, but I tweeted a couple of their statements during their speech. reported today:


Teen Mom’s OG adoption pioneers, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, hit up the 2013 Students For Life National Conference in Washington D.C. on January 26, and they’re more steadfast in their pro-life stance than ever!

The conference covered topics like Planned ParenthoodRoe v. Wade, birth control, and abortion, so as you might expect Cate and Ty had a lot to say. These two have been longtime advocates of adoption, and their emotional story about placing Baby Carly with a new family is definitely inspirational for teens dealing with unplanned pregnancy.

Catelynn and Tyler seem more hard-lined than ever in their pro-life stance, and they’re now pioneers for the “pro-life generation.” Whether or not you agree with this hot couple’s controversial opinion, there’s no denying that their anti-abortion work has brought them closer together.

“You are the most amazing MAN a woman could ask for!” Cate posted on Instagram along with pictures of herself and her man campaigning against abortion [photo below]. “So excited to have you as my husband!”

Catelynn later proudly tweeted several pro-life proclamations as well as this photo…


Catelynn and Tyler are remarkable spokespersons for adoption and life, swimming upstream against the very MTV culture that gave them rise. Find info here about having them come to your campus. And remember to pray for these two.
