Birth Choice Health Clinic in Santa Ana, CA.This morning I had the privilege of participating in the Walk for Life, sponsored by
Birth Choice Health Clinic is a faith-based, pro-life organization that provides services and education to teens and adults. Not only does is promote abstinence and positive alternatives to abortion, it offers parenting classes and a place where dads can talk through
"The Dad Project".
At Birth Choice, they don’t just offer Pampers and a prayer, as one newspaper article stated, they offer housing and education for young women when necessary for a period of up to two years at “Toby’s House”. At "Toby's House" they are taught real life building skills, receive child care, job assistance, domestic violence recovery education, and more.
As we walked and prayed, a priest who had joined us made a statement that I will never forget. He likened the abortion facilities to the death camps of Auschwitz. He said that human life was being exterminated here like it was there and people just look the other way. This is a sad analogy, but I can see the connection.
I started this posting by saying that I had the privilege of participating in this Walk for Life, I really mean that. And I ask each one of you that read this post to pray for the success of clinics like Birth Choice.
Prayer to End Abortion
Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!
