Look For Yourself

Look at this sweet baby who has been in the womb 20 weeks. Look at the perfect fingers, the eyebrows, the upturned nose. Don't you just want to cradle him in your arms and kiss that little forehead?

Any doubt in your mind that this is a human being? Any doubt in your mind that this human being needs our protection?

Earlier this week, the Catholic Archbishop of New York wrote an open letter alongside this photo, asking similar questions. He concluded his letter with these words,

Look and decide with honesty and decency what the Lord expects of you and me as the horror of "legalized" abortion continues to erode the honor of our nation. Look, and do not absolve yourself if you refuse to act.

You have an opportunity to act on November 4.

Breaks my heart for sure to think of all the beautiful lives that have not have a chance to live a life here on earth.

That Obama believes a life is a burden...unfathomable.

I actually gave birth to Jack, my little boy who was only 20 weeks. My husband and I got to hold him, spend some time with him, and buried him 5 days later.

He is a member of our family. There was never a question of whether or not he was a human being, or a "product of conception". He is simply our little boy.

Thank you, Shelley, for sharing your story. Your sweet Jack is safe in the arms of Jesus. He is your little boy now and for all eternity.
