Pretty Happy Funny Real Life

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.'
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!

  1. I will turn 40 this year as well. I was born the summer after the Roe vs Wade decision was handed down...and recently have learned that I might have been adopted. I often wonder, and am grateful for, what made my birth mother opt to give me life.

  2. A Carmelite spoke to us a couple of years ago and said that every time a baby is aborted, there is a black hole that exists in all our lives, everywhere, of what should have been. This really stayed with me. It makes me so sad for my generation and for my children and for all the black holes around us we can't see.
    I posted pics from our rally here in Juneau, Alaska...the capitol city of 30,000...and yes, Planned Parenthood has even managed to hold a death grip in the Last Frontier. Praying for Friday. God bless

    1. I had my big girls (12 and 13) watch it...they burst into tears at the end (I felt really bad)- it is hard to believe that even pro-abortion types are so cavalier...but some are

  4. I am the same age as Roe V Wade as well, and I explained to my own teenage sons how the 'baby' at the center of Roe V Wade is my age, it really touched them.

    1. It really hits home when one imagines all the classmates and friends who should be alive, but aren't

  6. That video is so creepy and disgusting - satan is a disgusting liar.
    We have the Walk for Life here in SF. The first year satan's minions were ugly, but that has not deterred us...every year we have GROWN,(even though the media does not like to report it)and tons of youth!

    1. San Francisco??? We are 5 hours south and lots of Thomas Aquinas students will be there- it is a really extreme place for the little ones (even worse than the DC march)

      God bless your courage to be there!

  7. This video shows better than I could ever explain what sort of man appreciates abortion. Roe v. Wade was not done for the benefit of women at all.
