An interesting article from http://www.ucg.org/ about the abortion controversy on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. This follows this post about international rulers.  For a free magazine subscription or to get this book for free click HERE! or call 1-888-886-8632.

Second Thoughts on Abortion

 Watching this week's Beyond Today program reminded me how serious the murder of unborn children is every day, in all parts of the world. For the United Church of God to take on this subject is a stepping stone for us. Raising the awareness of this modern plaque of society is a first, and I expect, not the last effort for us. Regardless of how many responses we receive, we have made a direct statement. That's what matters most.

If it causes just one pregnant mother to pause and consider the right to life of her unborn child then we have achieved something. That one life counts. All life is important, and if one life is saved it's worth our effort.

My wife and I spent the Thanksgiving weekend with two of our grandchildren. Romping around the house with them was a pure delight and joy. They enjoy life, simple and honest as it is for them. I am glad their mother honored and recognized them while they were in the womb. Watching their lives develop is a gift and a blessing for this phase of our life. We are thankful life was chosen. Our private world is better for that.

I saw an article last week saying abortions had decreased in number during the past decade. Economic factors may be the prime reason more than a turn in society. Let's pray it might become a trend—one person at a time. At least there are additional children born and having their chance at life. Thank God their mothers chose life.
