Choose Life
It is 37 years since the legalization of abortion by the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade.
This decision damaged our constitutional and social order because, as Wanda Franz, president of National Right To Life posits,
"life is no longer endowed by the Creator, but dependent on someone else's moods and feelings. Under this particular principle,
one and the same unborn child could be a baby in the eyes of one parent and a fetus to be aborted in the eyes of the other."

Death Panels
Part of Health Care Reviewing an early version of our health care law (HR 3200), Sarah Palin said,
'The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down's Syndrome will have to stand
in front of Obama's death panel so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity'
in society, whether they are worthy of health care." Representive John Boehner (R-Ohio) said,
'This provision may start down a treacherous path toward government encouraged euthanasia if enacted into law."
The term 'death panel' was unfortunate. Had Palin spoken of 'health care rationing panels,' her charge may have been taken more seriously.
Does our current health care law provide for the rationing of health care? Two types of evidence lead to an affirmative answer.
They are the pro-rationing appointments President Obama made to our health care bureaucracy, and provision for rationing structures in our health care law.

Jerimiah 1:5
"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you."
Week One: I was conceived today and have all my chromosomes and DNA. I am a miracle made in the image likeness of God.
Week Three: I am three weeks in utero. My heart is beating more confidently. All my major systems are developing. I'm a wonder!
Week Four: I am six weeks in utero. I have measurable brain waves and can move my body.
Week Five: I am 8 weeks in utero. All my body systems are working. I respond to touch, I can feel Pain, I can suck my thumb.
I am developing at a breathtaking speed. I am incredible!
Week Nine: I am 16 weeks in utero. I can use my hands to grasp, can swim and turn somersaults!

Please Pray
Please pray every day at 3:00PM for and end to abortion.

Prayer to End Abortion
Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life, and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion, yet I rejoice that you have conquered death by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today, I commit myself never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life.
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice.
Not just for some, but for all. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.
