Wounded Warriors

November 18, 2011 - 9:00am
Today's blog post comes from an amazing woman, Cathy Kerr. She is one of my personal heroes! As a post abortive woman, she has been an amazing leader for helping young women to see the truth of abortion. Cathy currently serves as the Regional Coordinator for Silent No More Awareness Campaign. "I met a woman on the sidewalk today. A group of pro-life prayer warriors gathered in front of a Planned Parenthood facility to stand against the death of innocent babies in the womb. I always watch my fellow prayer partners as they pray and reach out to...Read more

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

July 8, 2011 - 1:32pm
On July 4th, 1776 the Congress of the thirteen united States of America issued The Declaration of Independence. It was just the beginning of what became a hard fought and, eventually won, freedom. Certainly one of the most famous lines in this declaration is that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Time and time again we have heard these words whenever an unjustice against persons in seen. Using these words we saw...Read more

What brought you to the sidewalk to pray?

April 27, 2011 - 5:46pm
I have a personal history with abortion - in many ways. Although I grew up believing that abortion was wrong, and hoped to see an end to abortion, I wasn't personally involved in working for an end to abortion. Both my husband and I prayed in our home for an end to abortion...but we never physically DID anything about it. As far as our children knowing that abortion was wrong- we never told them what it was so how could they know it was wrong? All that changed in 2003 when friends asked us to go on a pro life march in Bryan, TX. It was a...Read more

What does a Pro Life Volunteer in San Antonio look like?

March 10, 2011 - 11:35am
What does a pro life volunteer in San Antonio look like today? Well, if they're a volunteer with the San Antonio Coalition for Life they are peaceful, prayerful and law abiding. This past Tuesday, as we kicked off the Spring 40 Days for Life Campaign, we got to see first hand the peaceful, prayerful presence of over 100 SACFL volunteers compared to the yelling and clanging of drums of about 15 Planned Parenthood counter protestors. See for yourself by watching the video here: http://www.vimeo.com/20863230 Amongst the peaceful prayerful singing...Read more

The Power of Prayer

October 5, 2010 - 3:07pm
As human beings we all think that we have complete control over our lives. It's often a big surprise to find out that, in fact, God is in control. In the movie "Evan Almighty" (a highly recommended family flick!) God laughs as the main character Evan says something to the effect of "I can't do this- I have plans!". In fact, God often has plans for our lives far greater than we could ever imagine. For Abby Johnson, the ex-director of the Bryan, TX Planned Parenthood clinic, who exactly one year ago today decided to walk away from her job and...Read more

The Choice of Two Paths

June 30, 2010 - 4:03pm
In our family we love the Christmas Season. Everyone you pass seems to be put in a better mood just at the thought of Christmas Day inching closer and closer. Each year, as we near the date of our Lord’s birth, I think about the choice that His mother, Mary made. We see in the bible the story of the prostitute near death by stoning. She was a sinner who had chosen a path that did not lead to heaven. The people of her town had chosen to punish her for her crimes. It was Jesus who stepped in to save this woman, not only from the stones that were...Read more

Father's Day Reflection

June 21, 2010 - 2:49pm
In the summer months of May and June we have an opportunity to thank our mother’s and father’s for all their hard work in raising us. Parenthood can sometimes be a thankless job- especially when we’re in the stage of diapers and sleepless nights- not to mention potty training! But then there are the moments of first smiles, first words, first steps and first little voices that walk up to you to say “I love you, Mommy/Daddy”. At some point these sweet voices turn to us and say “It’s not fair!” or “You’re so mean!”. As I have entered in to...Read more

Is Planned Parenthood Really Needed in Our Community?

June 10, 2010 - 3:23pm
With all the talk of health care recently, given the new Obamacare plan, Planned Parenthood as a large benefactor of federal money comes up a lot. Are they really what they say- providers of health care to a community who otherwise would have none? Or is there a deeper, darker side to why they exist? As you may or may not know, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood had some radical beliefs on eugenics, birth control and large families. Here are some quotes from Margaret Sanger herself taken from the site www.dianedew.com/sanger...Read more
