Just joining us? Go here to catch up and join the movement!
You know, it wasn’t too long ago that you didn’t really hear that much about abortion in the news. You heard a few blurbs here and there around the anniversary of Roe v. Wade every year, but beyond that, it wasn’t mentioned all that often. Or, maybe it was that we just weren’t listening. Certainly, the people that work tirelessly on the front lines of the pro-life movement were talking about it, but with a Republican administration in the White House, I think a lot of us felt semi-comfortable that the whole pro-life issue was just being “handled” or “protected” by those of “like-mind”.
The thing is, those that are pro-choice have been working tirelessly, as well. They’ve been consistently furthering their movement, during our complacency, and are poised to take record-breaking strides in this current administration. The health care reform bill shows us just how far they’ve come and just how much further they could take it. It may be frightening talk for life-loving folk, but it’s disturbed us into action. Abortion has taken center-stage, FINALLY, and is being discussed everywhere! It’s on the news, in newspapers and magazines, talk-shows and blogs. It’s being brought into the light where it can be seen for what it is, instead of hiding in the darkness where the enemy fights to keep it. There is even a documentary that has been made to this end (if reading from a reader or email, click here to watch the trailer):
Powerful, isn’t it? This film is still looking for a distributor and needs our help by either clicking out to YouTube to watch the trailer, or by clicking here to register at their website.
We are making strides in this movement, but it’s a marathon, not a sprint. We’ve got to keep talking about it, even if things don’t move along as swiftly as we would like, and continue to support all the many groups that are joining forces to keep the abortion issue front and center with our voices, our time and our financial resources. We can’t fall into complacency again. Too many lives are at stake, between all the babies and the parents who make this heart-breaking, devastating decision.
We’ve got to keep it in the Light.
the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
and to guide us to the path of peace.
Luke 1:78-79 NLT

Such a true post… Thank you for the post & video! Praying-April
Powerful video, I am so amazed at the deception. It is just unimaginable.
"Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour" 1 Peter 5:8.
I think sometimes in our complacency we forget that the enemy is out there, reaking havoc on our world, on unborn children and the mothers who choose to abort.
Standing along side you in this fight! Linking arms and praying!!!
Still here. Still blogging. Still praying.
Melinda, thanks for posting the video — very powerful… Still praying!
Still praying in Oregon.
"disturbed us into action" — that is powerful and true!
Thank you for all you continue to do in His name, Melinda.
I linked here from Yolanda's blog. You are right – during Republican administrations we put our minds on auto-pilot and don't pay as much attention to what is going on. Ironically, during liberal administrations the Christian populations rises up; during more conservative ones we slink back. The upshot is, we still have abortin and numerous other social ills that the Bible calls "sin." I liked your post. WB
Hi! I just wanted to let you know I will be out of the country when next you post for this… I am not sure that I will be able to see it but either way know I will be praying!
Thanks for all you do!
