Choose Life It is 37 years since the legalization of abortion by the Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade. This decision damaged our constitutional and social order, because, as Wanda Franz, president of National Rights to Life states, “the ‘unalienable Right’ to life is no longer ‘endowed by the Creator’ but dependent on someone else’s moods and feelings. Under this peculiar principle, one and the same unborn child could be a ‘baby’ in the eyes of one parent and a ‘fetus’ to be aborted in the eyes of the other.”

________________________QUOTES FOR THE WEEK_____________________________

1. There is more in us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps, for the rest of our lives, we will be unwilling to settle for less.  (Kurt Hahn)   

2. “Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones tend to take care of themselves.”  (Dale Carnegie, 1888-1955)

3. The secret of getting ahead is getting started.   (Agatha Christie, 1890-1976)
