Celebrating the Sanctity of Human Life

Today is the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade so I wanted to share a few wonderful links that I have found online this week.

Brooke at A Life in Need of Change really touched me this week with her series on the Sanctity of Human Life Week. Some wonderful bloggers came together to share their personal stories on how abortion has affected them. They put a face and voice to the many women (and men) who have discovered, firsthand, the pain that abortion causes.

If you couldn’t be in Washington, DC for today’s March for Life you can still show your support for the pro-life cause by joining the “Virtual March”.

The mission of the 40 Days for Life campaign is to “bring together the body of Christ in a spirit of unity during a focused 40 day campaign of prayer, fasting, and peaceful activism, with the purpose of repentance, to seek God’s favor to turn hearts and minds from a culture of death to a culture of life, thus bringing an end to abortion in America.”

August 28, 2008

So it’s been a month since I “officially” started my 300 in 3 years list. I am proud to say that I have accomplished 19 of the 300 tasks and am currently working on a lot more. I credit my success with looking at my list everyday so that I keep my goals in mind.

Today was also the day that Obama became the “official” candidate for the Democrats. Obama seems like a nice guy and I think it is wonderful that MLK’s dream is finally coming true and a black man *may* be president. I really don’t care for either candidate but vote pro-life, so normally republican. What I read in a blog last night though changed how I viewed Obama. Go to Jillstanek.com and look at August 27th posts. Then go to factcheck.org and verify it. Obama had the chance, as a senator, to support the “born alive” bills and he did not… twice! I’m going to research this more over the next couple days.

Today’s Challenge: Do you really know what the candidates believe? If you are going to vote in this election (which I hope you are), you should know where each candidate stands on the issues.
