In today’s modern age, it’s difficult to avoid the fact that unborn human beings are alive, growing, unique individuals – from the very first moment they come into existence. Yet some still manage to close their eyes to reality. It’s important to understand the things we claim to support. It’s essential to be aware of all the facts, not just the ones that seem to support our position.

And so, for anyone involved in the abortion debate – and for all those who are unsure exactly where they stand – here are five important videos. These short videos show just what that unborn baby in his mother’s womb looks like, at various stages of development. Modern scientific videos like these demonstrate that unborn babies are not:

  • A clump of cells
  • Part of his or her mother’s body
  • Similar to a virus or
  • Merely “potential” life

Abortion takes a child’s life. From the moment of conception, every person is a distinct and living human being with intrinsic worth, who possesses the basic right to life.

Abortion harms women. Abortion poses serious short-term and long-term risks to women’s physical and emotional health.

Abortion harms all of us. It has created a culture that disregards the dignity of human life, endangers women, demeans motherhood, and denigrates men’s role as fathers.

A choice for life is always more just. It’s the fair chance every person, including unborn children, deserve.

Do you have more questions about abortion? Do you want to know why the claims made above are true? Would you like to know how to explain abortion and the issue of life to your friends or others?

Well, fortunately, I’ve recently been introduced to an easy and excellent resource I’d like to pass along to you.

Ok, so this is a LOT different from my typical posts. But hey, while we are busy working to encourage moms out there to give their babies life, it’s also important to pass on some tips of exactly what to do with those precious gifts…

I’m a young mom – with one toddler and one baby coming later this year =). And I know I can often use encouragement and helpful tips. My children are some of the most precious gifts in my life, but that doesn’t mean I always know what to do with them!

So I’m going to pass on this EXTREMELY AWESOME article that my mom shared with me. It’s called “They are Listening: 19 Things We Should Say to Our Children.” Moms are sometimes told what not to say to our kids, but what about the things we should be saying?? You may not agree with every single phrase in this list, but overall – it’s great advice that I’ll be trying to follow.

I’d also add a couple other things I want to say to my children.

1) My parents always said this to us: “We can always talk about it. No matter what you do, we can talk about it. No matter how bad it is, we will be here for you, and we will work it out.”

2) “It’s ok. You’re safe. Mommy’s here.” This seems to be helpful for little ‘fraidy cat kiddos. We all need to reassured that we really are safe and that someone we trust is here for us.

So, to finish this out, why don’t you let me know things you try to say to your kids? What are important words we need to be building in our children? Because after all, after we choose to give life to these beautiful gifts, we need to remember to treat them like the gifts they are!

You CAN work to build a culture of life, and you must. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Without a doubt, abortion is the greatest bloodstain on our culture. Without a doubt, it’s the main way we, as a nation, reject life. It has become much too convenient and commonplace to kill the unseen children in our wombs. No matter what, we cannot step back on our resolve to speak out for each innocent life and every family affected by abortion. Now is always a time to move forward.

I’ve been thinking lately, though, that pro-lifers ought to take a bit of time to consider how we live our day to day lives. In simple, easy ways – or easily forgotten ones – do we build a culture of life? For instance, you can read my article for Live Action here that discusses how we view children when we see them at the grocery store or at church. Silly? Maybe…but’s itself something I know I had to think about.

What about more serious things like driving tired? Do you know how many people get killed because another driver was asleep at the wheel? Don’t risk people’s lives like that! Pull over, stop at a friend’s house, chew gum, blare music, roll down the window – whatever it takes to not accidentally fall asleep at the wheel. Don’t take risks. Drinking a little too much before driving should go without saying.

How about being an overall careful driver? (You can see I’ve been thinking about driving lately.) Instead of rushing so fast to get to the next place – even if we’re late – what about slowing down and being sure to REALLY watch the road and be extra polite to other drivers. I firmly believe these kind of easy, simple actions can help save lives.

Do you have ideas on how to build a culture of life in the day-to-day things we regularly do? To stop abortion, we often need to step out of our comfort zone. But for these other things, we already do them – so why not do them right?

Hey Friends!

Just wanted to let you know that I very recently started blogging over at Live Action!

Live Action was started as a youth-led movement by Lila Rose when she was just 15.  To date, she and her team have conducted many investigations of Planned Parenthood.  Her work is quite famous–in fact, if you look her up on YouTube, you’ll see plenty of media videos about what she’s done.  You’ll also learn about many of Planned Parenthood’s lies in the process.

I’m excited to join their team of bloggers over there, and hope that you will check it out often.  Live Action keeps their blog VERY updated with current news, real-life stories, and up-to-date opinions on the pro-life issues.

Here’s a link to my first blog post over there:  “Terms of Life and Death“.  Let me know what you think!  And don’t worry, I’ll still be blogging here as well =)

Merry Christmas!
