Adoption – Stronger Because Of It

They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger (cue Kelly Clarkson) and that is even truer when it comes to giving life. Good for this girl for staying strong even when the men in her life tried to pressure her into “choice.”

He sat me down and told me I needed to have an abortion. My whole world came crashing down again. I have never cried so hard. I was lost, and the only man I knew truly loved me was telling me to do the same thing the boy I thought loved me said to do. I stood toe to toe with my father and told him no. I had more respect than that for myself and for God.

I’m so glad I chose life and gave Brett a chance at a good and happy life. He is a gift to everyone, and even though it was hard, I would never take back the journey I went through. I’m stronger because of it.

Here in Ottawa, FirstPlace Options, Birthright and Miriam Centre can provide information about local adoption services. AdoptioninCanada is a great website with information about the adoption process.

Why are you pro-life?

by Elizabeth Tanguay

In the federal election debates, no one even so much as mentioned the word “abortion.” And Harper has explicitly said that he will oppose any motion or bill that reopens the abortion debate. However, this does not mean that there is no point in voting pro-life. It is important to ensure the rights of unborn children and the rights of pregnant women are respected and protected in this county. For more information on elections and pro-life issues, see Campaign Life Coalition’s election page.

Live Action recently asked on their Facebook page, “In ten words or less, why are you pro-life?” Here are the highlights of some of the responses they got.  My personal favourite: “As a former fetus, I oppose abortion.”

May we never forget our most humble roots and continue to stand up for the thousands and millions of unborn children, our human brothers and sisters, who lose their lives to abortion.

Remember why you are pro-life. Vote on May 2, 2011.
