French rap star ‘Black M’ reflects on his son’s premature birth

French rap star Alpha Diallo, better known by his stage name ‘Black M’ has recently reflected on the birth of his premature son Isaac.

In a recent interview with the French edition of ‘Closer’ magazine, Diallo spoke candidly about the difficult birth of his son Isaac, who was born at only six months gestation.

He said of his son: “His birth was a shock”. 

“We were afraid he would not survive”

“He was born prematurely, at 6 months gestation and weighed 900g. He was resuscitated several times. My wife, Léa, and I were afraid he would not survive”.

“He has zero sequelae but, like many premature babies, he is hypersensitive”.

“When he is happy, he is extremely, when he has a little sorrow, he is deeply sad. As he expresses it with force, and is all the more touching and we are very close to him”.

Diallo and wife, actress Léa Djadja are the happy parents of two children: Isaac and daughter Kiki

In the interview, the singer described how he reconciles his family life and artistic career, due to the support of his wife.

“Léa gives me an invisible force. No need to talk to each other. She’s here, and it makes me want to go! She’s not here, and I want to let it all go”. 

Improving chances for premature babies

Babies are continuing to be born before or shortly after the abortion limit of 24 weeks gestation in Great Britain and going on to survive and thrive at greater rates than before. 

Studies suggest that the majority of premature babies grow up to be healthy adults without any major health problems.

A study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in October 2019, followed 2.56 million babies born in Sweden between 1973 and 1997, around six percent of whom were born prematurely.

Researchers compared the health data of the premature babies to those that had been born at full term. They found that 55% of premature babies had no serious chronic, physical, or mental health issues by early adulthood. This is compared to 63% for babies born at full term.

Additionally, with each passing decade, the odds of survival for a premature baby to adulthood have improved from about 91% of babies born in the 1970s to about 96% of those born in the 1990s.

A spokesperson for Right To Life UK, Catherine Robinson, said: “It is so wonderful to see public figures such as Mr Diallo speak out about experiencing the premature birth of a child. It is fabulous news that Diallo and his wife Léa were able to support each other and their family through such a difficult time, and that their son Isaac is now a happy and healthy nine year old”.

Dear reader,

Thanks to the support of people like you, on Monday 5 July, a major attempt to hijack the UK Government’s flagship Police , Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill with two extreme abortion proposals failed, in a major pro-life victory.

Unfortunately, this major defeat is not the end for our opposition.

The abortion lobby has already been successful at using the Coronavirus crisis to temporarily introduce ‘DIY’ home abortions.

The policy has not only accompanied a large increase in the number of lives ended by abortion but has also been linked to a number of serious incidents where women’s lives have been put at risk while performing their abortion at home.

Our opposition is now eager to see more widespread changes to legislation enacted and we are currently facing major threats on three fronts:

  1. The abortion lobby is further exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to attempt to make dangerous ‘DIY’ home abortions available permanently.
  2. The Northern Ireland Secretary has given himself new powers to force expanded abortion services on Northern Ireland.
  3. The assisted suicide lobby has brought foward a bill to legalise assisted suicide, which was introduced to the House of Lords on 26 May.

If these major threats from our opposition are successful, it would be a disaster. Thousands of lives would be lost. We can’t sit on the sidelines and watch these extreme anti-life changes become a reality.

As you can see, while we have won our most recent battle, we continue to be facing a very large challenge on life issues in the UK over the next couple of months – and we will be facing this across multiple fronts.

We are, therefore, appealing to you to please give as generously as you can. Every donation, no matter how small, will go towards saving the lives of the unborn and many others.

By stopping these threats, YOU can save lives over this coming period.

Will you make a special gift right now to help protect vulnerable lives from these threats?
