We Can Win!

This photo came from our trip to California.   We met at Dana Point for a lovely evening together.   L to R: Bill Lussenheide, his wife, Terry, Me, husband, Bernie, and Donna Ivanovich.

 

At a meeting I attended last night, one of the speakers gave us a legislative update.  The speaker told us all the statistics of how many pro-life people are in our State government. Perhaps she was expecting us to applaud.

Then she explained how very little was being done to move any pro-life bills.  She said the legislature usually waits until the last week to pass the pro-life bills.  As much as I wanted to get up and tell them what’s really happening, I just sat back quietly thinking about how easily people can be manipulated.   Continue reading

Here I am with Pam Fichter, Former President of Missouri Right to Life, at the Respect Life Convention in St. Louis.

Here I am with Pam Fichter, Former President of Missouri Right to Life, at the Respect Life Convention in St. Louis.

Once again we are coming up on the anniversary of one of the worst US Supreme Court decisions in history. Instead of more “armchair hand-wringing”, I recommend we take a more active approach.

First, get informed about all of the ways in which human life is being abused. Even though the Supreme Court made a bad decision long ago, the people in this Country are not bound by that opinion.

Second, regardless of how you regard the weight of the US Supreme Court OPINION, the Congress is under no obligation to fund abortion. There are legislative remedies available RIGHT NOW that are not being employed. Continue reading

Planned Parenthood

I had a chance to meet a true champion of life at a friend's house a few years ago. Cal Zastrow was driving through St. Louis and spent the night with a friend, Chris Clegg. Before he left the next day, we were invited over to fellowship together. Standing, from the left side is Cal's son, me, my husband, Bernie, seated we have Cal and then our son, Philip.

What’s the right response to the tragedy at the Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs?

Here’s an example of the wrong response: Planned Parenthood, the Mayor of Colorado Springs and Mike Huckabee further inflamed the discussion by calling this “an act of domestic terrorism”.  Just to get this in perspective, in Chicago, eight people were killed and 20 wounded over the same weekend.   Isn’t all murder an act of domestic terrorism?  Isn’t all murder a hate crime? At a time in history, it contributes nothing to our public discourse when people attempt to invent new definitions to take us to a deeper level of grief.

Here’s another example of the wrong response:  Hillary Clinton quickly seized the opportunity to exploit this tragedy to polarize the people when she declared, “We Stand With Planned Parenthood.” Continue reading

Stay The Course!

We all have different reasons for the hope that is within us.  The world sometimes has bad news, but as long as we can find a few friends who are like-minded, we can help each other.  This is a photo taken of me with my friends Cindy Redburn and Laurie Kish at a meeting we had in Rolla, Missouri a few months ago.

Anyone who has watched the news recently has seen some sad stories about France, economic woes, the Muslims beheading innocent children and our American way of life being compromised by the racists, the haters and Atheists.

Yet, there is some good news. Continue reading

Adoption

She almost looks like a doll.   This is a real grandbaby born in Knob Noster.

This is a real grandbaby born in Knob Noster.

Years before abortion was considered legal in all 50 states, many young ladies were pressured into giving their babies away. Whenever a baby cannot be raised by his own mother and father, it is always tragic and should give us pause to reflect on the consequences of living in a fallen world. Yet, sometimes circumstances beyond our control warrant eliciting the help of others.

In life, there is no such thing as rewinding the tape. The reason many women destroy their babies is because they want to believe they can undo a segment of their lives later in the process. Many times parents who either give their children away or destroy them, feel a sense of loss and sadness for the rest of their lives. My city clerk once told me, “You can take the baby out of the mother’s body, but you can never take the baby out of the mother’s mind.” Those words stuck with me through the years because they are true.
