Today, January 22, 2013, marks the 40th anniversary of legalized abortion in the United States. Roe v. Wade = close to 55 million abortions since 1973. [source]
This morning at 5 a.m. I started my coffee and turned on the radio to hear the news of the day, I heard about how some famous singer thought American Idol should be cancelled. I heard a weather and traffic report (it's 20 degrees F and the roads are icy due to freezing fog in case you're wondering). I heard about some crazy guy who did mean things to his grandma's dog because it was nipping at him. I became curious and took a look at the webpage for our local radio news station to see what the top stories of the day were [take a look] and if there would be any mention of Roe v. Wade...
There wasn't. I think that maybe RC is right.
So, last Friday afternoon the kids and I spent an hour down in Vancouver at the Clark County Courthouse...
Have you ever done this? We had not.
There wasn't a huge crowd (I counted about 65 people), no media, no pro-abortion signs to counter ours. Just a couple dozen people with a heart to stand locally against the plague of abortion in our land...I was humbled.
Take a look at the words on the "Clark County Public Safety Memorial" pictured above. Even my kids, at 14 and 12 got it... "Dedicated to all those past, present and future, who have served to make our community a safe place to live." unless you're an unborn baby... That's right kids, this monument is dedicated to you.
As a family we are officially off the fence, and we hope you'll join us.
