Appreciating the cost and privilege of freedom.

Did you take the time to consider and express gratitude for your freedom last week in celebration of the 4th of July?

Abortion isn't just another political "hot button" issue. 

What is it about the topic of abortion that makes it stand out from all the other "hot button" political topics of our day? Why does abortion elicit such strong reactions from both sides of the aisle that other topics like tax reform fail to conjure up? It all comes down the heart of the matter: life. Abortion draws so much fervor and debate because at the center of the issue is the value and worth of human life. This is also where pro-life stories come into play as well. Stories shared from women who've had abortions and doctors who've performed them only to reach the other side of their decisions full of regret and pain have an ability to connect with people in ways that other politicized issues can't. Join Shawn, Steve, and Robert on this episode of the 40 Days for Life Podcast as they expand on this important discussion; you don't want to miss it!

There is a real reason for hope.

This is an exciting and monumental time to be part of the pro-life movement as the Supreme Court has real potential to move us closer to a culture of life and leave the dark days of abortion behind. Remember, it's not quite time to pop the champagne bottles just yet! There remains a lot of work to be done before we can truly celebrate. Enjoy this important milestone that you've worked so hard to achieve, enjoy this hopeful moment but stay vigilant and prepared for the long road ahead!
