40 Years of Roe V Wade

It is so hard to believe that abortion has been legal for so long.  It is so wonderful to see so many of the youth embracing the pro-life movement.  As the children get older, there is so much more we can do to help.   For years, my role in the pro-life movement was having babies!  Now that these babies are growing, we can pray together, protest together, help to spread the message together. 

This year we're sending two of our daughters to the March.  It would be so nice to all go together, but the finances never seem to be there.  Ms 17 yo has never gotten to go because today, this anniversary, is her birthday and the March has always been over her birthday.  This is the first time since she was old enough to go that she can be at home to celebrate and still make the March.

Speaking of celebrating, this date is always so bitter-sweet for us.  Yes we abhor abortion and want to make reparation on this day,  BUT it is also a day for us to celebrate as we welcomed our third daughter into the world 17 years ago.  

Father told us the Bishops have called for prayer and fasting today and so we will go to Mass, pray our rosary and try to fast from something, all the while celebrating the wonderful life that was given to us.

 God Bless!
