Though the timing of a pregnancy may come as a surprise, virtually no one that has a physical relationship with another person is unaware that that activity can cause a pregnancy.  Indeed, we’re explaining to children at ever younger ages how children are made a formed along with providing them with means and methods that are less than 100% effective for having all the pleasure with none of the responsibility.  Or so they’re lead to believe.

A radio commercial I hear almost every day has the voices of children claiming that one day they will discover the cure for HIV/AIDS, be President of the United States, and broker a peace treaty between Israel and Palestine—if only we’ll say yes to the latest education fad.

A television commercial asking us to donate to another group displays different inventions of a people group and urges us to invest in the education of this people group for more innovation.

Banning Abortion would not stop abortions from happening, we’re told, because they’ll happen regardless.  Wouldn’t we prefer that abortions happen in doctor’s offices instead of back alleys?  Wouldn’t we want to keep people that want abortions safe?

We’re going to resurrect Pro-Life Fridays and start looking again at life in the womb by answering some more Pro-Choice questions.

This is an exciting time for the Pro-Life movement, for in the middle of a terrible health care bill came a surprise in the further limiting of Federal Funding when it comes abortions.

So, this should be an interesting topic as the question of life comes back to the foreground.
