Met Abby Johnson tonight, the wave-making young woman who left a successful career at Planned Parenthood a little over a year ago after witnessing an ultrasound-guided abortion. Great speech, and of course a powerful message about the reality of abortion as the killing of a child—a living being that feels pain, that has an identity, that was created by God for a purpose.
All this, of course, for the fantastically good cause of supporting the Onslow County Pregnancy Center. I was so excited to find out that they’re always interested in donations of diapers, wipes, baby clothes, and all those other things that mommies with little babies need. Yay! Somewhere to take all this stuff we aren’t using any more (and the surplus that enthusiastic neighbors keep bringing to me—no WAY we’ll ever need this many clothes), somewhere that actually needs it. Abby was right. We need to own the fight for life, we need to make it personal and make our time and our treasure work for the unborn.
