Life.

We read about some very provocative things awhile ago, that are just begging to be shared. We start with pictures of a baby in utero…

On the screen the following words appear: "This child’s future is a broken home. He will be abandoned by his father. His single mother will struggle to raise him." The background music continues as we watch the baby grow.

New words flash on the screen: "This child, despite the hardships he will endure, will become the first African-American President."

The picture on the screen then changes to the jubilant moments of Barack Obama on election night. The short piece closes with a simple yet provocative tag line: "Life. Imagine the potential."
 

And, a speech by a 12-yr.-old girl named Lia, who insisted on this subject after being otherwise-advised by her teacher…

Her speech has now received more than 100,000 hits on YouTube. And here’s what Lia said: "What if I told you that right now, someone was choosing if you were gonna live or die? What if I told you that this choice wasn’t based on what you could or couldn’t do, what you’d done in the past, or what you would do in the future?"

Lia continues, "Thousands of children are right now in that very situation. Someone is choosing without even knowing them whether they are going to live or die. That someone is their mother. And that choice is abortion."

Isn’t that amazing? Though I’m sure there will be lots of arguments against all that. But lest you think Christians are "demonizing" people who have abortions, there are groups who exist to reach out to "help people who have been devastated by abortion", because if it doesn’t hurt you physically, it hurts way deep inside, where it’s very hard to heal, let alone recognize.

By the way, the Hyacinth is BLOOMING!!

Walk to Rivendell:  We’re thankful for hope, as we trudge along.
