I'll be marching for life in my town this Friday. Yes, life is pretty, happy and funny, but this week it is mostly 'real.'
--- Have you suffered from abortion? Perhaps you know someone who is regretting her abortion? Please get in touch with Rachel's Vineyard. It can be the beginning of healing.
--- Just watch this video. It is not a parody...I saw satan laughing (and winking) with delight...
--- Simcha Fisher wrote a fantastic piece on not using graphic images in our pro-life marches. I agree. The personhood of the baby needs to be emphasized. This is accomplished by using fetal development videos and photos. And of course in a crisis pregnancy situation, we need to help end the crisis, not the pregnancy (photo from webmd.com)
--- This is my only brother; he will turn 40 this summer. This is the face of what Roe versus Wade took from the world. 55 million people have been erased from this country since abortion was declared legal.
My brother is a husband and a father of three. He is a lawyer and a reservist serving his country. He pays taxes and contributes to society's good in many ways. He is a church-goer and a Knight of Columbus. He farms chickens and goats. He is an individual, but those who celebrate this sad anniversary wouldn't be upset if his existence had been terminated while in utero.
Although my parents were overjoyed to be pregnant with him, I have always connected my brother's life to the Roe v Wade anniversary because of his age. Every person deserves life!
