40 Days for Life

If you have a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil anywhere near you, I encourage you to go and say a rosary for the end of abortion.  Give at least one hour to pray and show your support for the precious little lives in the womb.  The halfway point has passed, go and pray today before the campaign ends.  If there is no 40 Days for Life near you, participate in spirit by praying at home or in your local church or even across from an abortion center near you where there is no official campaign.

Although support for abortion has dropped below 50% this year, we must continue to pray and also to be active by calling our congressmen, state and federal, to express our opposition to snuffing out little lives.

In the United States of America, our founding document, the Declaration of Independence declares:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed….

Life is the first right we have.  It begins at conception.  The child has a heartbeat, its own blood by about the 3rd week.  The child’s DNA is different from its mothers.  It is a separate, living, human being.  By around day 35, eyes, legs, and hands are developing.  By day 42, the child’s brainwaves are detectable; it has a mouth and lips, and it’s fingernails are forming.  By week 7, the baby is kicking.  In only 56 days, all the organs are in place.  In 77 days, the baby can grasp, it’s organs are all functioning, and the child has fingerprints.  At week 12, the child can feel pain.  At week 17, the baby has dreams (REM sleep).  Sadly, week 20 is the earliest stage that partial birth abortions can be performed.  What a sad and disgusting form of birth control.  People would be arrested and condemned for doing the same harm to a dog as is done to the baby during this procedure.

It is false to use the current abortion marketing phrase “a woman’s right to choose.”  A woman has freedom to have sex, but she does not have the right to kill her own baby.  This is according not only to common sense, the innate notion of good and bad, the Holy Scriptures, but even our own Declaration of Independence.   Go.  Pray today.  Pray that we ALL shall have the right to live.
