Ladies for Life

Chuck Colson recommends a movie about a couple fighting to save the lives of their handicapped son and daughter. The movie website is here. Harrison Ford stars. The movie is based on a true story.

Anthony Esolen pays his respects to a remarkable woman and pro-life leader, who died recently at the age of 84.

He attributes the following to Dr. Jefferson:

“I became a physician in order to help save lives.  I am at once a physician, a citizen, and a woman, and I am not willing to stand aside and allow the concept of expendable human lives to turn this great land of ours into just another exclusive reservation where only the perfect, the privileged, and the planned have the right to live.”

What would you do if the view from your home included a favorite spot for suicides? Would you use it as an opportunity to save lives? Like Australian Don Ritchie?

Don’t let the Old Media tell you how many people march in March for Life events. Or tell you, very oddly, that only old folks are out there opposing abortion. Far from it. (I really enjoyed this video.)

The doctor who took the famous photo that inspired Precious Feet pins talks about how he came to take the picture.

Jill Stanek provides a peek into the world of radical abortion culture, and one woman’s journey out of it.

I suspect many of you will understand and appreciate this part of the story:

Abigail continued some of her destructive habits until last year when her oldest son was diagnosed with autism. She began conducting online research for help, but got nowhere with the atheist groups. “Their overwhelming response was, ‘I’m sorry you weren’t able to find out and abort him in time.'”

The thought of not having her son, difficult though his condition sometimes is, was unthinkable.  “I realized I was a good mother, a loving mother and, most importantly, now, without question, a pro-life mother,” she said.

Abigail began to research Christianity, which “somehow didn’t seem as hostile and threatening now.  In fact, it seemed like just what I needed.”

Never underestimate the power of real love.

The first episode of the season is online. Among the topics: what Congressmen are doing to fight/repeal Obamacare.

From Denise Burke, writing at Americans United for Life (October 8, 2010):

Yesterday, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), meeting in London, adopted a resolution supporting the fundamental right of health care providers to practice medicine in accord with their individual consciences.  In pertinent part, the provisional resolution stated that “[N]o person, hospital or institution shall be coerced, held liable or discriminated against in any manner because of a refusal to perform, accommodate, assist or submit to an abortion, the performance of a human miscarriage, or euthanasia or any act which could cause the death of a human foetus or embryo, for any reason.”

In adopting the resolution, the Assembly rejected attempts by international pro-abortion groups to undermine health care freedom of conscience.   Pro-abortion Assembly members, working in concert with pro-abortion groups such as the Center for Reproductive Rights, had sought to harass and punish medical personnel who refuse to participate in abortions because of religious, moral, ethical, or conscientious objections.

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