Ladies for Life

Archive for February 2011

This might be a good resource: Calendar For Life. It serves as an aggregate site for pro-life events across America, for starters.

from the other side of the fence.

Find out more about a young lady who has been doing wonderful work in Texas, and who has some words of encouragement and advice for those of us who are pro-life, in Jennifer Fulwiler’s interview with Elizabeth McClung. Click through from the above-linked post for the interview.

 

Getting the message across in 33 seconds:

Pro-lifers, there will be a goodly gathering at the Rose Bowl on March 27, and you’re invited.

Even if you don’t think you can make it to the event, please go check out the website. It’s yet another of those projects run primarily by young people, and they are doing an excellent job.

Amongst other things, they are compiling pro-life videos at the site, and ask that people send them their favorites. Have at!

Soft. Sweet. Beautiful. And to the point. From 2008:

A boy without a cerebellum is forcing medical experts to admit they didn’t know as much about the brain as they thought they did.

Karen Edmisten has a series called When I Was a Pro-Choice Atheist. She’s up to Part 5. Much of it has to do with how often we don’t communicate well with people who don’t agree with us.

She also brings up a point that’s easy to forget. Conversion comes slowly for most people.

(Eric Sammons makes a similar point, in the Results section of How to plant seeds of faith with strangers. Expecting instant results is a mistake. Sometimes it happens, but not often.)

This week’s Cross Examine television show looks at embryo adoption. The episode is titled Snow Babies.

One of the reasons some churches forbid some fertility procedures is that ‘excess’ embryos are created, many of whom are discarded or donated to be used as research material (which, as one lady notes in the show, is another way of being discarded). Embryo adoption has arisen to give some of the hundreds of thousands of young lives, currently in suspended animation, a chance at being born.

 

The post begins (emphasis in original):

From Father Corapi,

A large number of endangered, unwanted, and unborn children held a town hall meeting on the 4th of July – alarmed at the brutal and untimely killing of millions of their brothers and sisters in recent years. That the murderous war waged on them had the full force and respectability of the law made their plight all the more terrifying.Their complaint was humble and it was simple. They were not distressed by rising gas prices, or the deteriorating economy in general. They were not even frightened by the exponential increase of natural disasters. The threat of global warming or global terrorism did not greatly disturb them.

They had become an endangered species, and little had been done to answer their terrified and silent screams from the womb. They decided that the barbaric treatment that they and their fellow unwanted unborn human beings have had to endure for perilous decades was unconscionable and unbearable. They cried out to their Creator for inspiration and protection, and then unanimously they put forth a declaration. It began as follows:

“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of nature and the Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF-EVIDENT, THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, THAT THEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, THAT AMONG THESE ARE LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS…

THAT AMONG THESE IS LIFE; THAT AMONG THESE IS LIFE; THAT AMONG THESE IS LIFE!”

The first and pre-eminent right is the right to life. This truth the Founding Fathers were sure of, and anyone with any common sense at all is equally sure of it. 232 years after the Declaration of Independence was signed the amount of common sense that seems to be operative in many spheres of influence – most notably the courts and the political arena – can easily be poured into a very small thimble. The United States of America seems to have a death wish, and we have traveled far down the road to having that wish realized. When law divorces itself from common sense and spawns the illegitimate offspring of distortions of law, resulting in illegal laws – based neither on the natural law nor divine law – this undermines law itself, generating disdain for the law. Erosion of trust in the courts, or the system in general, is inevitable.

Tammy Ruiz, a nurse with a specialty in Perinatal Bereavement and Perinatal Hospice, brings some valuable perspective to the discussion prompted by Chuck Smith’s recent broadcast advice to abort conjoined twins.

Barb at Erasetheneed’s Blog, who works in pregnancy counseling, also thinks Smith got it wrong, and explains why.

Susan Tyrrell at Bound4Life discusses Choosing Life Even When It’s Painful. The post includes a video featuring Angie Smith of the blog Bring the Rain, who is author of I Will Carry You.

 


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