Put Feet to Their Faith - Help Your Children Stand for Life!

Today is the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade - the supreme court decision which legalized abortion in the United States of America. With all the talk about the "rights of the mother" and "freedom of choice" talk about "responsibilities" and the right to "life" can be pushed to the side. Please take a moment to watch this video about a little girl who weighed only one pound when she was born - she was the size of a dollar bill! The doctors thought this little girl had a fatal chromosomal abnormality which caused this little girl to stop growing; her mother, at 25 weeks, spent 24 days in the hospital on bed rest. When Kaylan was born, tests confirmed she did NOT have the chromosomal abnormality! She spent 120 days in the NICU, but then she went home!

Life is precious! Unborn babies are people who deserve an opportunity for life. Pregnant girls/women have the "freedom of choice" - the choice to not get pregnant, to wait until they are married for sex, to give their babies up for adoption, but they do not have the "right" to "choose" to end the life of a child who never asked too be created in the first place. This is where "responsibility" comes in. When a girl finds she is pregnant, she needs to take responsibility and at least give birth to the baby. Killing the baby is not, or at least should not, be an option.

Give the children in your ministry a high view of life and give them a heart to help those in need. Girls who find themselves unmarried and pregnant, do not need our judgement or condemnation. They need our support and help. Contact your local crisis pregnancy center and find out what supplies they are in need of - diapers, formula, bottles, baby clothes, maternity clothes, etc and involve the children in your ministry in a project to gather these items and donate them to the center. 

Life is precious. Help your kids understand this truth and help them put feet to their faith and show compassion and care for others!
