Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year!  

For many of us, 2012 was a difficult year, starting with the "War on Women" attack by liberals beginning last February to the re-election of pro-abortion/infanticide Barack Obama in November.

Nevertheless, American Life League's Judie Brown lists good reasons for "cautious optimism" for 2013 in a new essay.

And the other side was unhappy to report that 2012 saw the second highest number of state pro-life legislation passed (43 bills) - ever, second only to 2011, when 92 were enacted into law.

And, of course, we are most optimistic because of our hope in Jesus, as St. Paul wrote in Philippians 3:13-14:

But here is the one thing I do. I forget what is behind me. I push hard toward what is ahead of me. I move on toward the goal to win the prize. God has appointed me to win it. The heavenly prize is Christ Jesus himself.

Amen, and Happy New Year!

Following were my top read posts this week, in case you missed them.

And, of course, there's much more to read on the blog!

For Life,


#1: "Time magazine cover story: Abortion proponents on
       losing path


The intriguing title of the January 14 issue of Time magazine reads, "40 years ago, abortion-rights activists won an epic victory with Roe v. Wade. They've been losing ever since."


The cover article is only available by subscription, but I excerpted its fascinating major points in my post

Scientific American termed the research findings another way: "Scientists discover children's cells living in mothers' brains."


But I wanted to drive home a touching point: Mothers who terminate their pregnancies apparently don't completely rid themselves of their babies. The cells of murdered children live on inside their mothers to help - or perhaps - hurt them. Read on. 


Monifa Thomas is not simply a journalist who works for the Chicago Sun-Times.


Thomas was hired in 2005 as a health and medicine reporter and in 2010 was promoted to the editorial board due to her "particular expertise in medical issues and government health care," according to the Sun-Times.


And still Thomas didn't know about the dangers of the birth control pill. Read an excerpt of her story on my blog, published in the Sun-Times on December 25.


Most people are happy to live in a world where discussion of abortion only occurs in churches and political stump speeches.


Most people want to drink their coffee, eat their fast food, watch their movies, and go about their day without thinking about abortion and considering what it might take to effect its abolition.


But we know that 3,500 unborn human beings are being killed every day, and that this is not something we can just push out of our minds or keep secret. Most of the people in our world don't know this. Many of the people who do, don't want to talk or think about it.


Abolish Human Abortion's drop cards are designed to facilitate just that.
#5: Don't water down the March for Life

I spotted the graphic below on the Holy Angels Youth Group website (out of Chagrin Falls, Ohio).

Although the graphic was certainly well-intended, it bothered me - for several reasons. Read why on the blog
