First Ever National Pro-Life Youth Rally!

Posted: January 5, 2011 in Take Action Now

On January 24th, 2011, the first ever National Pro-Life Youth Rally will be held in Washington, D.C.  This rally will be held after the annual March for Life in D.C. that draws thousands every year.  Youth are joining forces in increasing numbers to stand up and say, “It’s enough!”  We must be the generation that draws on the successes of those before us, trusts in the faithfulness and miracles of our Savior, and STOPS ABORTION.  We have no excuse to let this curse continue in our nation.  We have no excuse to let millions keep dying.  We have no excuse to turn our backs.  We cannot be silent.  We must speak out, speak up, and speak loud (no matter what age we are)!

If you want more info on the rally, visit:  http://nationalprolifeyouthrally.com/.  Here’s the roster of great speakers and performers participating this year:  Barlow Girl and national leaders like Eduardo Verastegui, actor and star of the award-winning movie, Bella; Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King; Abby Johnson, former Director of Planned Parenthood; David Bereit, 40 Days for Life; Kristan Hawkins, Students for Life of America; Erik Whittington, Rock For Life; Lila Rose, Live Action, and Ryan Bomberger, Radiance Foundation.

The following poem expresses the attitude of too many Americans for too long.  We must shoulder the responsibility to change this attitude. 

Death is all around me, And still I do not see

What lives are being taken?  What souls are thrown to Hell?

 Ambivalent to danger, Blinded to destruction,

Why would I change my world?  Why would I be scorned?

 Men are falling there, Women dying over here

Where have the children gone?  But why should I care?

 Laughing with a frown, Uncomfortable inside,

Why should I take a stand?  Why should I speak up?

 Falling, falling to the ground, No one ever comes around

To see what could be done, To see what we must do.

 Indifferent to the warring factions, Deaf to cries for help,

Why would I raise my hand?  Or open up my mouth?

 Shrug my shoulders, roll my eyes, I am not my brother’s keeper

This life is mine to live, And mine to help myself.

    What a shruddering thought to realize the first murderer spewed out the cold, callous words, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” This killer thought nothing of murdering his own brother because it was inconvenient for him to learn to love another human being no matter what the cost would be for him. If we are not “a baby’s keeper” then we have the same cold, callous, unwilliness to learn to love as Cain, the first murderer did. It is a sombering realization when we partake in an attitude of disdain because God would have the nerve to expect us to “keep the babies” He has given to humankind to love and let grow up so they can have a life God said they should have. Babies are just tiny little adults in the womb that haven’t had a chance to get big in their body. But their little souls and their potential are just as big as the adults who live outside the womb. We as caring Christians need to be keepers of what God has given as a blessing and that includes every baby from the moment of conception!
