Roe vs. Wade 32nd Anniversary

This weekend we had a rather somber church service. A service remembering the anniversay of the Supreme Court decision of Roe vs. Wade.

And, of course, an occasion like that gets me thinking. Thinking about all the statistics of what has happened in America since that decision. And the importance of teaching our children the value of life.

For those of you with older children, here are the links to information I've used this week:

http://www.roevwade.org/rvw1.html - yearly abortion statistics. The number of abortions has increased so much that there is one every 24 seconds.

http://www.nrlc.org/abortion/index.html - info on abortion techniques

http://www.standupgirl.com/inside/index.html - the most amazing COLOR photos of early fetal development

http://www.standupgirl.com/inside/embryoscopy/index.html

http://www.3d-us.org/eng/nomedic.htm - photos and scroll down to the bottom for MOVIE of 15 week old baby and a 32 week old baby - 3D no less! Oh, and video of a YAWNING baby.

http://www.abortionfacts.com/literature/literature_921ms.asp - developmental facts of fetus by days and weeks

http://www.nrlc.org/abortion/facts/abortionresponses.html - debating right to life
'In 2000, more children died from abortion than Americans died in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World Wars I and II, the Korean, Vietnam and Gulf Wars combined'

Today, I hug my children. I thank God for them. Today I pray for those pregnant teens and other women who are in emotional distress, for comfort for them, and for guidance to lead them in the way of adoption. Today, I pray for our country and for the oportunity we have to reverse Roe vs. Please take a moment right now to do the same. Thank God for the people who fight for the rights of these unborn infants just as we would fight for justice if someone took the life of our born children.

Sincerely,
Laura Bankston
