Culture of Death

Today is the 37th anniversary Row v. Wade, the US Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal in the United States. Since that decision was handed down countless babies have been aborted. In addition to the tremendous loss of life, there are many thousands of women who are no doubt still wrestling with the emotional turmoil of murdering their unborn children. The Weekly Standard has an excellent article that speaks of the collateral damage caused by abortion. Sadly, you will never read this sort of perspective in your local daily paper.

Here in Louisville there is a wonderful ministry that is making a difference on the front lines of the battle for life, A Woman's Choice. They are standing with women who are dealing with unplanned/crisis pregnancies. The team at AWC is providing invaluable assistance to mothers and children.

Coincidentally, over the weekend my wife and I watched Bella on DVD. It is an independent film that was released in 2006. The movie has a solid pro-life message. If you have not seen it, I recommend you give it a look. Here is a review from Phil Boatwright.

When you stop and ponder the tragic effects of abortion, it is heartbreaking. We are a nation that has made it okay to participate in a culture of death.
