7 of the Best Pro-Life Quotes in Honor of Today's March for Life { 7 QTs}


Today's the 44th annual March for life in DC and lots of
talk about the marchers' peaceful intentions to
raise awareness and  coverage ( or lack thereof ) abounds on
social media.
There are SO many thoughts and quotes expressed
by those who have a public platform, whether leaders or celebrities.
My favorites, those that speak to me  are below~
  


1
“You read about me in history books, but now I am dedicated to 
spreading the truth about preserving the dignity of all human life 
from natural conception to natural death."
~ Norma McCorvey

"America you are beautiful . . . and blessed . . . . '
The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat
 every human being,
 but especially the weakest and most defenseless. 
If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, 
then America, defend life."
~ Pope Saint John Paul II ( and my hero !)

"How can there be too many children?

Abortion advocates are spending millions to package their tired rhetoric
 and half-truths in cutting-edge 
advertising campaigns targeted to young women."

the immortal worth of every human being,”
~Chuck Norris, giving a kick in the teeth to abortion rights.

necessarily, but I'm linking it here due to relevancy! LOL ) ~

Turning Mother Against Child in the Name of Freedom? Not Part of His Plan


For 44 years, we have been living a nightmare.
Truly,  living in America today is like stepping into the
pages of a Ray Bradbury or Kurt Vonnegut piece
< Brutal geniuses that they were. >
where suicides and life "terminations" and more- are common and accepted.
It's a horror, a nightmare of epic proportions and
those who speak against it are, at best, considered pariahs....
 at worst, downright crazy.


Contrary to what many consider a victory ......
a victory for women, for families, for America,
the fact is when the Supreme Court, through Roe v Wade,
 legalized abortion on demand  on this day in 1973,
it crushed the rights of a child in order to preserve a mother's 
right to destroy her child's life.



It made acceptable the tearing apart of mother and child in
the name of progress.

And equality.
 And femininity.
And freedom.

But what freedom is there to the taking of a life?

To establish that the rights of  women are predicated on 
exterminating  the most defenseless members of society..... ?
That's no freedom at all.
Nor is it progress.
Nor, civil rights.

But many don't see it this way.
And I get that..... I really do.
I get that many women feel enslaved by their fertility.
And I get that they feel they need the "right' to choose 
the when, the how, the why of their reproductive-ness.

Those marches that took place in DC and in other cities
of our great nation  this past weekend..?
There was a lot of snark and derision on the web around these but really, 
I get why women march......they stand with the voiceless.
They stand in solidarity for those who cannot,
for those who do not.
For those who don't have the freedoms, the privileges 
and the rights that we, here in the greatest nation in the world, do have.

Isn't that essentially what The March for Life is?
Aren't we, who march for rights of the preborn, also a voice for the
voiceless?
For the defenseless?
For those whose rights have been trampled?

How are these two causes mutually exclusive?
Imagine the force we could be, if we harnessed our fervor and 
perseverance ....those who march for women
and those who march for the preborn....
to institute, to restore the rights of both,

How can we not see that The March for Life IS pro-women?
Just as it IS pro-life and pro-preborn child?

We might say.... there are there SOME women 
whose attention seeking tactics in the march on DC this past weekend
were...well...less than, um,  ladylike.

Well,  my friends, 
there are some pro-life advocates
who've attempted to make a point with less than 
peaceful means as well.
< put down the tomatoes...this is the truth > 

You know they're out there and they make us all look bad.

Hey, I'm about as devoted to the prolife cause as one can get.
And let's be honest.
There are fringe wackos in every movement, are there not?
They tear apart all the good and all the rationality.
When one hears "prolife," one tends to think of 
abortion-clinic bombing psychopaths
NOT the thousands of good natured, kind hearted  souls
who, in my parish alone, collected close to $6000 in cash and
two truckloads of baby gear in only one weekend after masses for
our local chapter of Birthright.
Because that's what prolifers do.
Because we value the life of baby and mother and
we're there to applaud that woman as she exacts her RIGHT to choose life.
We're behind her, cheering her and offering her tangible
support and we're not judgmental because
Lord knows, that could be any of us or our daughters or our sisters
or our friends or our neighbors or coworkers.

We are all His daughters.
He has great things in store for all of us.
I don't presume to know His plan, but I can venture a guess that
turning against one another
and pre-born members of society is not part of it.

Sponsor Love on the Blog ~ Back to Basics Bargain Books, Ground Breaking Reading Curriculum, Deals on Amazon & Target AND Compassion Bloggers


Happy Friday--- more than halfway through 
this  <very mild! yay! > January......!
I've several brand new sponsors to 
introduce to you all today, 
along with a few returning sponsors as well. 


 Regular readers know I've grappled with the concept of
 affiliate marketing and sponsors here on the blog.
However, the products and companies I'm sharing with you today 
are those which  I am proud to purchase and use--- 
really....these are items I use in everyday "life." 

And as for affiliate links,  for those who don't know.....
affiliate marketing  basically refers to  a commission received
For example, when readers visit my blog and
 decide to buy something that I’ve written about, I received a
<small> referral fee.
It’s transparent to you, the buyer,  and doesn’t affect your cost.

So, today, I'm happy to direct you to books, resources, companies
which I've found useful, inspiring a-n-d frugal
in the hopes that you will too!
I really feel there's something for everyone on this list....
So, here goes!


~ 1 ~ 

(since the sale is over, I've deleted the info.... )


~ 2 ~

 I'm thrilled to welcome as a sponsor
my favorite curriculum provider....
(and you know I'm a curriculum junkie...
so this is saying something.....!) 
Reading Horizons is  a  company offering  ground breaking
reading intervention which is
systematic, muti - sensory and explicit.


I'm implementing  the Elevate software for my 14 year old
dyslexic son.....
By the way, new readers many not know, 
I've devoted a wealth of posts to dyslexia and dysgraphia here....
I've been searching for a solid program for a good number of years.
My son is now IN school  - we are no longer homeschooling.
BUT...I am unhappy with the program being utilized  in his 
remedial reading class ...you know I'm hard to please with this sort of thing.....
and I'm thrilled to have discovered RH to use with him 
on weekends and occasional evenings!
The hunt is over.



 Blogger friends,  #s 3 and 4 on my list are for you!

Want to make over $1000 a month with Amazon affiliates? 
(are you kidding, of course! who wouldn't!?)
So let's read and learn together you guys!
 ~ 4 ~



You can do this even if you don’t have the perfect idea yet, 

or you are busy, or you’re not techy!

I can affirm that blogging is an amazing experience and
if you're considering starting a blog yourself,
here's two words for you: DO IT! 
By the way, I  love Suzi at 
Start a Mom Blog....go visit her site and enjoy!
