MOTHER TERESA ON ABORTION
"America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts -- a child -- as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. (a punishment?) It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners. Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign." (Mother Theresa -- "Notable and Quotable," Wall Street Journal, 2/25/94, p. A14)
"But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even his life to love us. So the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love - that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it hurts. By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child to solve her problems. And by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to more abortion. Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching the people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion. "
"Please don't kill the child. I want the child. Please give me the child. I am willing to accept any child who would be aborted, and to give that child to a married couple who will love the child, and be loved by the child. From our children's home in Calcutta alone, we have saved over 3,000 children from abortions. These children have brought such love and joy to their adopting parents, and have grown up so full of love and joy!" February 1997 - National Prayer Breakfast in Washington attended by the President and the First Lady.
"What is taking place in America," she said, "is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another."
"Any country that accepts abortion, is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants."
"It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish."

LESLEE: YOUR MEASURE IS NOT LEGALLY SOUND!
Babies whose fathers are criminal rapists, do NOT
deserve the death penalty!
Abortion ban returns to ballot in South Dakota
Oct 18, 2:32 PM (ET)
By CARSON WALKER
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Two years after South Dakotans rejected a nearly total ban on abortion, voters on Nov. 4 will decide another sweeping but less restrictive ballot measure that would probably send a legal challenge of Roe v. Wade to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The initiative would outlaw abortions but includes exceptions for rape, incest and pregnancies that threaten the life or health of the woman. Some voters said they wanted those exceptions when they rejected the tougher 2006 measure 56 percent to 44 percent.
Opponents say the new measure would jeopardize the patient-doctor relationship because physicians could be criminally charged for exceeding its bounds. They also argue that its exceptions are too narrowly defined and that it would force some women to carry an unhealthy fetus.
Leslee Unruh, the executive director of VoteYesForLife.com and the measure's main proponent, said it's legally sound.

Our Posterity should not be viewed as a "punishment," but a blessing!

YOUR HEART WARMER FOR THE DAY!!
With the recent focus on Sarah Palin's baby boy, Trig - the outrageous statistic that nearly 90% of Down Syndrome babies are aborted, is starting to leak into the national consciousness.
Let us pray that America's hard heart for those with disabilities will begin to melt and that we
will extend legal protection to all pre-born humans, from fertilization through natural death.
VOTE YES ON Colorado's Amendment 48 !!!

Thousands turn out for Race for the Cure
By By Julie Hutchinson, Special to the Rocky

A river of pink flooded downtown Denver this morning as more than 60,000 people ran and walked in the 16th annual Komen Race for the Cure to support people affected by breast cancer.
Among the participants was North High School senior Salvador Sonola, one of 25 North ROTC students to turn out for the race. "It is a good thing to do this," he said. "People want to help."
Jessica King, 31, an Aurora librarian diagnosed with multiple sclerosis nine years ago, rode in a scooter. She took part in support of her mother in law, a breast cancer survivor.
Since the first race in Dallas in 1982, the Komen Race for the Cure has grown to 100 races nationwide, with more than 1.4 million participants expected.
Nearly 62,000 people participated in the 2007 Denver Race, one of the largest footraces in Colorado history. Funds raised go to cancer research and community outreach.
Race officials said 1,400 volunteers helped stage today's event.

THIS PERTINENT COMMENT on the Rocky article about the SGK annual event, is worth pondering.
"Find a cure??? Why bother when 60,000 people are willing to make some scammer a zillionaire with bogus running events."
