October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

"Breast cancer is the leading cancer diagnosed in women in America. Each year, more than 211,300 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed. More than 39,800 women will die from the disease. The good news is, as more breast cancer is detected early, far fewer women will lose their lives."

October is National Respect Life Month

For all those pro-lifers out there, October is National Respect Life Month. I encourage you to take action:
  • Learn about the unborn. abortion, and the profound effect abortion has on women  and men:
Abortion: Some Medical Facts
Quotes from Abortion Clinic Workers
The PASS site
After Abortion Blog
Human Embryonic Development
Stand Up Girl: The Inside Story (Prenatal development with 3D ultrasound and contact embryoscopy)

Volunteer your time at a pregnancy resource center. Also pregnancy resource centers are run off of donations. Often needed are gently used maternity clothes, and baby items. (What is a Pregnancy Resource Center)
  • Pray for the women facing an unplanned pregnancy decision and a change of heart and courage for those who are abortion minded.
  • Pray for healing for women who have had an abortion.
  • Place a crib or host a baby shower at your church to collect baby supplies for a mom in need.
  • Take legislative action: National Right to Life Political Action Committee
  • Participate in a local Life Chain
I'd like to close out this entry with some of my favorite pro-life quotes:

"There is tremendous sadness, loneliness in the cry, A woman's right to choose.' No one wants an abortion as she wants an ice cream cone or a Porsche. She wants an abortion as an animal, caught in a trap, wants to gnaw off its own leg." --  Frederica Mathewes-Green in her essay, 'Beyond "It's a Baby" '

"It is a cruel joke to call this a woman's "choice". We may choose to sacrifice our life and career plans, or choose to undergo humiliating invasive surgery and sacrifice our offspring. How fortunate we are--we have a choice!"  -- Frederica Mathewes-Green in her essay,  'The Bitter Price of "Choice" '

"When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit." -- Elizabeth Cady Stanton, organizer of the first Women's Convention, Seneca Falls, N.Y., 1848
