March for Life

Roe v Wade (January 22, 1973). I learned about this historic decision to legalize abortion in high school. Having come from a poor country, I knew how difficult life can be for those destitute. Why bring another unwanted child into the world? Yet, the idea of killing a baby inside the womb was chilling. For years, I felt that even though I personally wouldn't have an abortion, I couldn't tell another woman not to have one. She should have the freedom of choice. However, once I had my own babies, I changed my views ... abortion should be outlawed.

The article here explains very clearly the role of law.

This Friday, Jan. 22, 2010, thousands will march to mourn the historic decision that has allowed so much death.

For those who need help and healing, please go here. I know five dear women who grieve silently for their babies, who regret their abortion, and how I wish I'd had the courage back then to say, "I will help you take care of your baby" instead of saying, "I will support whatever choice you make." We are all culpable for this culture of death.

Let us pray to end abortion.

For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother's womb. Psalm 139:13
