I've always been pro-life. But now that I'm pregnant, I'm PASSIONATE about it. I can't ignore the precious baby moving inside me...yes, I said it: baby. Not blob, not even fetus. A real, live, human baby.
I was recently made aware of a project going on called the Red Envelope Project--you can read more about it here. The basic idea behind this project, which was started by Chris Otto, is to send an empty red envelope to President Obama. Each empty envelope signifies a life that was taken because of abortion.
President Obama has made his views very clear when it comes to abortion. Taking a stand against such views almost seems like a lost cause, but GOD is in control, and He is the One who can change a man--we just need to do our part.
While I don't agree with President Obama (especially in regards to abortion), he is the leader of our nation--and in order to lead "peaceful and quiet lives", as the Bible says, I must pray for him.
Pray that his heart will be changed. Pray that he will see that children aren't a "punishment" but a precious gift.
There are a lot of other great sites that are doing their part in the fight against abortion. Abort73 is one of them. Here's a video from their site:
Lastly, here is a scripture I came across awhile back that I posted on our refrigerator:
Proverbs 24:11-12 (New Living Translation)
11 Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to die;
save them as they stagger to their death.
12 Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.”
For God understands all hearts, and he sees you.
He who guards your soul knows you knew.
He will repay all people as their actions deserve.
God takes life seriously--so should we.
Time to go buy some red envelopes!
