Sanctity of Life

Today is the March for Life in Washington DC.

It is also the 40th anniversary of Roe V Wade. 

In the words of the creator of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger:

"The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."

Jared and I watched the movie, October Baby.  It is about a girl who finds out she was birthed at 24 weeks after a botched abortion and then abandoned at a hospital.  It is a difficult, but essential watch.  Here's an article stating why you must see this movie. 

After watching it I laid in my bed and mourned the loss of millions.  It's just so very overwhelming to think about the atrocities, these tiny innocent lives being torn apart in the womb.  

This has to stop.  We need to be on our knees in prayer and supporting our local Crisis pregnancy centers.  Sonya, my sis in law, is the director of Hands of Hope in Platte City. 

I want to challenge you to contact her, contact Hands of Hope.  Make a donation, offer to volunteer, do what you can in order to put up a fight.  If not the church then who?

I am so thankful for our Catholic friends and the stand they have taken.  
I am thankful for Hobby Lobby and the stand they have taken against the abortion inducing drugs our government is trying to force them to offer.  

It's time to love on these women who are scared and alone.  This isn't about forcing a woman to keep a baby she doesn't want.  It's about offering love and support to women who feel they have no choice.
