In my work with the Pregnancy Care Center of Tiftarea, we don't deal with politics much, for we are in the trenches dealing with the young women who find themselves in unplanned pregnancies. It's not that we don't want Roe v. Wade overturned, it's just that we have a laser beam focus to help women here and now, and pray for the former.

Today, the political side of me and the work of the PCC rose up as I watched the annual March for Life in Washington DC. Today was the 43rd anniversary of the terrible ruling that would lead to the murder of 58 million innocents, and who knows how many more to come. This year the snowstorm that was predicted to shatter records with more than two feet of snow on the city loomed. VA and MD governors had issued states of emergency. The mayor of Washington had warned residents to stay inside and prepare for days without power or water.

People wondered if the march would be cancelled or postponed for the safety of people. They wondered if people would cancel their plans. Would a poor turnout look bad? The news media as of 6:30 pm has pretty much ignored the several hundred thousand people in front of the Washington Monument and the US Supreme Court. Amid presidential candidates and this huge storm (both of which were participating in the march), I only found one mention of it among FOX, CBS, NBC, or MSNBC, and that was a photo of a few of the 65 pro-abortion people that were there, talking about Pelosi and Clinton, and Planned Parenthood being champions for women's rights.

They came in buses by the droves, they marched, they chanted and cheered. They carried signs and sang. They were joyous in the common cause of which they would not be thwarted by weather or politics or antagonists. I watched most of it on YouTube. It was great to see!

Of course, there was a bit of sadness in some eyes because of prior abortions. Many carried signs saying how they used to work for the industry but now were against it. Many wept over children they never knew, or of children that would never be tomorrow. One woman made a statement during an interview that stuck with me. She said, "we are here because one-third of our generation has be aborted." Remember that I speak on this all the time, even last week, but that was a powerful statement. Truly, America has killed off generations, because one abortion takes a life as well as every life that would have come from it.

My prayer is that Washington and many heartless, depraved, hardened, immoral, or scientifically ignorant people would just look at the science, and know that life happens 40 weeks before one takes their first breath. I watched the coolest and most convincing video I have seen yet of a surgery performed on 18-week twin girls in the womb. The camera was in the uterus, and it was truly amazing. You must see it here. Awesome, huh?! How can one say this is not a child??? I realize that overturning Roe v. Wade will not stop abortion completely, but laws against murder don't stop all murder either. I would love to see it, and so would the millions of children who will certainly perish if it's not...
