Pro-Life Mega Post: Psalm 139, 7 Things You Can Do to Support The March for Life on January 22, 2014 AND From the Archives: Scenes from Last Year's March

Welcome friends~
Last year, to mark the 40th anniversary of 
Roe v Wade and the legal slaughter of close to 
56 million innocent and defenseless babies,
we traveled to Washington DC to voice our protest alongside
close to three quarters of a million others and stand against
 the Supreme Court's decision.
In honor of The March and the peaceful protest of 41 years of legal abortion
on demand, I  offer Psalm 139: 13-16, 
wherein David praises God
on creation, even in his mother's womb.~
For you created my inmost being
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

My post from the March last year is here and I'd invite you to click over,
visit and view some photos of the day:

Some of our group on the steps of the Supreme Court Bldg last year.
Yup, it was cold!
Snowy, frosty and sleety, too.

We'll be marching again this year; 
we leave hours before dawn and arrive back home close to midnight
with our parish bus the day of The March.
We are honored to be a voice for those who are unprotected.
Will you be going?
I would LOVE to meet up with you, if so.~
Please shoot me an email!
Not able to attend?
Live too far?
You can still support the right to life from conception to natural death.
Here's how~ 

7 Things
 You Can Do to Support 
The March for Life on January 22, 2014

1. Pray not only for those who march, but also for those who support abortion, that their minds and heats will be changed forever.

2. Contact your newspapers and TV networks to encourage/demand fair and unbiased coverage of The March in mainstream media outlets.

3. Show your support by wearing your Pro life pins, t shirts and displaying your pro life bumper stickers, car magnets and license plate frames.

4.Contribute to your favorite pro life organization, such as Birthright.

5. Be aware of the companies and brands you support. Do they support Planned Parenthood? Are you sure about that?  Check this very revealing list of companies 
that directly or indirectly donate to PP. Boycott them and contact the company to 
 let them know why you are no longer a patron.

6.Contact your elected officials to inform them that you do not want your tax dollars to fund abortions and support Planned Parenthood.

And #7 is  specifically for New Yorkers. 
We have a blatantly, openly and viciously pro abortion governor, who calls himself Catholic. Care to read  his most recent affront? Here it is.

If you are not a New Yorker, your efforts on our behalf are greatly appreciated.
  THANK YOU, from all pro life New Yorkers!
Here's what you can do~~
Contact your congressperson and senator to let them know you  want them to defeat The  Reproductive Health Act. Join the NY State Catholic Advocacy Network at www.nyscatholic.org to  personally become aware of and support pro life activities.



Let's all keep fighting the good fight, friends~
Lastly,
I was nominated for a Sheenazing Award 
at  Bonnie's A Knotted Life.!!
The awards are so named in honor of Ven Fulton Sheen's 
unique use of media to spread 
The Word!
To say I'm  honored is an understatement!

Voting begins on Thursday  January 23rd~~
Go, enjoy perusing the list of nominees and discover some
amAZING ( ! ) blogs!

And thank you, Bonnie, for generously hosting!

I'm honored by your vote, friends!

  1. I am going this year! Carpooling with a lovely Catholic couple from NYC :) I was not aware our Governor was so misled on the issues of human dignity though, such a sad thing to hear a fellow Catholic say! Thanks for all the wonderful resources Chris!

  3. A couple of weeks ago I was grocery shopping with my five kids in tow. A young woman (28) started up a friendly conversation about her husband's ex-wife has 5 kids and does a good job with them but she only has 1. Then she said she had been pregnant another time but just couldn't deal with another child. I just stood there in shock thinking, "did she really just tell me she had an abortion as casually as she would say it's going to snow tomorrow?!" I'm praying that attitudes toward children and their value change all across the country. Thanks for sharing via Family Fun Friday.

  4. Thanks for sharing this!!! I also get sooo angry at the flippancy & lack of respect towards babies these days...and it is getting more blatant. I actually felt the Lord challenge me to share my story of having 2 unplanned pregnancies & walking through it with His mercy & help. (you can find it on the side bar at www.parentingandhomeschoolinginfaith.com if you're interested) Thanks for stepping out & sharing about this important topic..
