The March for Life, which began in 1974 in Washington, D.C, has inspired a worldwide March for Life movement. Hundreds of thousands have attended these peaceful events, which are a celebration of life, around the globe.
The March for Life, whatever country it is, can be so powerful because often people feel alone. But there is something of the power and the unity, and the solidarity, and in the message that we are going to keep working until every human life is protected from conception until natural death.
America’s youth are standing strong for the protection of life at all stages of development. Generation LIFE is fighting for the unborn. Be proud of this great generation that reaches out in love to protect babies.
Offer a prayer in thanksgiving for Generation LIFE and all those participating in the March for Life 2016
Susan B. Anthony was passionate and logical in her arguments against abortion. The Revolution was her brainchild, co-founded with Elizabeth Cady Stanton as a weekly women’s rights newspaper that acted as the official voice of the National Woman Suffrage Association and in which appeared many of her writings alongside those of her like-minded colleagues. Most logical people would agree, then, that writings signed by “A” in a paper that Anthony funded and published were a reflection of her own opinions.
In one house editorial, signed “A”, she wrote:
“Guilty? Yes. No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; but oh, thrice guilty is he who… drove her to the desperation which impelled her to the crime!“
[The Revolution, 4(1):4 July 8, 1869]
Further, as one becomes familiar with Anthony’s compatriots and their thoughts on the issue, it is clear and consistent that these early women leaders did not believe abortion was a good thing for women. Courtesy of the SBA List
Priests for Life and the American Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists hosted a press conference in Washington, D.C., on Mon. February 23rd to spread the word that a simple and safe medical protocol has been developed that is saving babies whose mothers have taken the first drug of the two-drug procedure known as “RU-486.”
Priests for Life Medical Advisor Dr. Matt Harrison did the first-ever reversal in 2007. The child he saved is now a beautiful and healthy 7-year-old girl.
The video shows Father Frank with Priests for Life Medical Advisor, Dr Matt Harrison and doctors who have saved 127 babies by reversing RU486 abortions. 49 of those babies are still in the womb, and one of them was there with them at the National Press Conference, proving the success of the RU-486 reversal protocol!

I recently came across a young woman who is an abortion clinic escort. She asked why someone would stand outside an abortion clinic and preach. She calls him “A.”
>> “A” is a regular and is known for his attempts to connect with clients and companions in his approach of ‘I was just like you. I understand you. I care for you.’ This is “A.”
In this clip below, he is talking to clients and companions waiting by the entrance for the doors to open. (Note: video of minister was changed to audio only by blog owner)
“A” increases his volume after the clients enter the clinic, but his message is always the same. Escorts have heard him so many times, they can recite the story he shares on the sidewalk. ‘I wasted my life until I was 23. Then I read the Bible. My friends said they would find out about Jesus later. One died in a car wreck. He didn’t have time to find out. You never know what is going to happen. You need to find out about Jesus today.’
One of the interesting things about “A” recently is how he speaks about his wife’s pregnancy. When he first started saying, “My baby is 19 weeks old,” we thought he was talking about a born baby. No, he was talking about his wife’s pregnancy. Recently, “A” let us know his baby was 26 weeks old, adding that the baby recently became legally safe from abortion doctors. An escort observed, “I wonder if he thinks that abortion doctors do drive-by abortions and will randomly attempt an abortion if his wife gets too close to a clinic?”
My question is if he cares for the clients and companions so much, why does he speak words meant to shame and harass them for their decision? I know that is a rhetorical question and won’t be answered, but it doesn’t matter if you scream your words or softly speak them. You are still there to interfere with a legal, medical decision by any way you can. <<
I will be referring to this post in an upcoming Part 2 post which will also be one of personal testimony.

Today I have a blog recommendation for you – Keep Life Legal, written by Rev. K.H. Marple, and providing pro-life news, commentary and ministry. She has put her finger directly on an issue I believe central to pro-life ministry and support within the Christian Church.
“The Church, as a whole, has been woefully inadequate in getting the Message of Life out. The Church has stood by silently while millions of children have died these past 40 years. The Church typically stands on the excuse that the abortion issue is political. Political? Is it political that innocent children die every day to the tune of at least 4000 per day in the United States?” original text
At Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, abortions are offered until birth.
“Just sit on the toilet” New Mexico abortionists send women to hotel rooms alone to await room-service abortions
An unnamed counselor at the facility advises Live Action’s 27-week-pregnant investigator:
If we can’t catch it [delivery of the dead baby – the final stage of the abortion procedure] early enough, which has happened… then you’ll want to unlock the door to the hotel room, get your cell phone, and just sit on the toilet. You don’t have to look at anything … you can stay on the phone with us until the doctor and nurse get there[.]
In this shocking video, Life Dynamics Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas compares unborn babies murdered inside American abortion clinics to those killed from American wars.
From 1973 through 2011, at least 55 million unborn children have been slaughtered in the womb in our nation.
Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics in explaining why they created this video said, “We did this video because it’s very easy to talk about 55 million dead babies but no one can fully wrap their minds around those numbers. This will help America understand just how overwhelming these numbers are and demonstrate the magnitude of abortion in the United States.”
My other blog is on King Baudouin I of the Belgians and his wife, Queen Fabiola. They were a magnificent couple with deep springs of faith rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition. A recent post I wrote for the Baudouin & Fabiola blog deals with the King’s steadfast belief in the sanctity and value of life. Click the picture to read their story on my other blog.
I don’t think one can start a blog on the importance of respecting life without talking about the two powerhouses for life, Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa. In my own church family in the Anglican tradition, there are none so eloquent or so unwavering as were those two giants. This first post is in loving memory of John Paul II and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta for their lifetime of work and love and for their shining light. I honor them.
