Ladies for Life

Archive for May 2011

A teenaged mother was rescued from an abortion facility thanks to text messaging. She has since given birth to her precious son. Story here.

In this case, it is reported that neither the baby’s mother or father wanted an abortion. The young woman was hauled against her will to the abortion facility by her own mother (the baby’s maternal grandmother). The baby’s paternal grandmother sent out a call for help, and a sidewalk counselor pulled off the save.

As they explain in the article, by using texting instead of a voice call, the counselor and trapped mother were able to communicate privately. The counselor sent encouragement, and also a picture of a preborn baby the same age as the one in mortal danger.

My thanks to all the people who made the March such an upbeat, and notable, event.

This year’s theme for The National March for Life is “Abortion Kills a Human Being.” (I’d say that gets to the point.) Events start tomorrow (prayers, vigils, etc.), with the march on Thursday, followed by a youth conference on Friday, May 13. Schedule here.

There will also be other marches across Canada.

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