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
