Ladies for Life

Archive for March 2009

James M. Kushiner at Mere Comments takes note of FOCA Under the Radar, with an emphasis on Illinois. He has links to two pro-life sites set up in opposition to a state FOCA bill.

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Christian college students who were barred from holding a pro-life event because it didn’t contain a pro-abortion viewpoint, and who were bullied by a “Stop the Hate” campaign. (George Orwell, call your office…)

Oh, if you want to see a flyer the college freaked out over, here it is (pdf).

Ormond Beach family lives its adoption beliefs (Florida Baptist Witness, March 12, 2009), takes a look at a Christian couple’s mission to increase support for adoption amongst Christians. Several links to online adoption resources accompany the article, if you’re interested.

Titus 2 for Life has some ideas for transforming the culture on its Opportunities to Build Hope page.

Vital Signs Ministries has a list of books it bills The Pro-Life Indispensables. Over at his book blog, Denny Hartford (the director of Vital Signs Ministries), also recommends Check with Chip on Stem Cell Research, by Chip Maxwell, Executive Director of the Nebraska Coalition for Ethical Research.

Over at Lutherans for Life’s “Teaching for Life” page, there’s a link to a pdf listing children’s books and movies and other resources on a variety of pro-life topics. The resource list was compiled by Diane Albers, a kindergarten teacher and the President of Lutherans For Life of Missouri.

At Mommy Life, Barbara Curtis has recommendations for children’s books about disabilities. That post is part of a series, which also includes Down syndrome books for parents and Children’s books on Down syndrome.

I recently got the How Now Shall We Live? Devotional, by Charles Colson with Anne Morse (Tyndale House Publishers, 2004). I (ahem) have been reading it more like a book of short essays and history lessons than a devotional (the devotions are adapted from BreakPoint commentaries), and so I can tell you that there are a number of first-rate pro-life articles in it.

What would you add?

Added: This sounds wonderful and a lot of fun: Clare at A Maiden’s Wreath recommends Mrs. Dunwoody’s Excellent Instructions for Homekeeping, by Miriam Lukken.

Senator Tom Coburn, a practicing physician,  joins the ranks of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other health care providers who are prepared to go to jail rather than help kill babies in the womb.

In a post at Pollywog Creek, Patricia writes:

I must leave shortly for an appointment and there’s not enough time for me to elaborate at the moment, but finding this from Dr. Mohler in my reader this morning made my heart race. It is my passion and my burden. It is the one place I know God has called me to use what ever gifts He has chosen to grant me, and I could use prayers that I will remain focused to the task. (“Do Not Cast Me Off in the Time of Old Age,” Part One.)

Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) wrote wise words about the need for joy, and Wittingshire shares some of them.

(Parents: I like to think you vet all posts before having your kids read them, but this one is about especially evil conduct of the sort that provokes screaming meemy nightmares, so… extra caution, please. Thanks.)

In stark contrast to the previous post, there are abortionists who throw live babies into biohazard bags. Today brought reports of another alleged case in Florida. (hat tip: Alliance Alert)

I guess it depends on what you think your job is: providing medical care, or getting rid of unwanted individuals. Well, that, and whether you understand that you answer to God for what you do to a human being He’s created.

The following was drafted Feb. 9, but for whatever reason, I didn’t post it. (Somebody tell me I’m not the only person with drafts I can’t decide whether to publish…) But it ties in, so…

A mother who sought an abortion but delivered a live baby, only to see the abortionist kill the baby while she watched is suing for damages. (Via Althouse, who claims that to claim damages for seeing the killing of your baby is to say that you didn’t comprehend what you went into the abortuary for in the first place.)

I’ve read other news stories about women traumatized by seeing the remains of their baby accidentally left out after an abortion. Uhm, well, I guess if you’ve really got yourself convinced that what you’re asking the ‘doctor’ to remove isn’t really a baby, it would be a shock to find out that what you think and what you see doesn’t change what the child is.

Fantasy 0. Reality 1.

Over at The Practicing Catholic’s sidebar, I saw a link in the blogroll to a blog called Save the Little Humans. It sounded like a likely prospect 🙂 and so I clicked through, and found (amongst other things, of course), this story about how a doctor could respond to a request for an abortion, if he knew right from wrong, and a growing human from a clump of bothersome cells.

Welcome. This is just another place for pro-life ladies to meet and share and offer support to one another.
