2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Final Countdown!

December 5, Week 37:  Only 3 more weeks and I will have my birthday.  I’m filling out now–absorbing about a gallon of amniotic fluid each day.  My cheeks have fat and muscle in them.  I’m a little plump.  I weigh 6 pounds and am 20 inches tall.  I’m ready for a picture, Mom.

December 11, Week 38: Mom, better pack those bags.  Although, I think I will be born right on time.  I’ve stepped up practicing my breathing.  My lungs are just about ready.  It’s only a matter of a few days, and they’ll be fine.  And, Mom, don’t forget the camera.

December 19, Week 39:  It’s really crowded in here and it’s very hard for me to move.  Even the umbilical cord is 20 inches long and about 1/2 inch thick.  However, I’m moving down, Mom.  I am so ready!  I bet you are, too.  I know you must be tired of going to the bathroom every two minutes.

LIFE CHAIN: This Sunday

This Sunday marks the 24th annual National Life Chain in more than 1,800 locations throughout the United States.  Most Life Chains occur from 2 to 3 p.m.

(Need to find a location or a time in Georgia: See http://LifeChain.net)

National Life Chain is a silent witness of the Christian community standing in honor of 54 million babies whose lives have been lost to abortion.”  Everyone of all ages can participate in their local Life Chain.

Pro-life advocates will line the streets and sidewalks with signs like, “Abortion Kills Children”,” Pray to End Abortion” and “Abortion Hurts Women.” The National Life chain serves to remind people of all faiths that abortion destroys the lives of the unborn – and forever scars their mother.

More information can be found at http://NationalLifeChain.org.

Here in Georgia, there are stories that reflect the positive effect of the life chain.  The most memorable is what happened in Savannah about 10 years ago.

A young woman who drove past the Life Chain in Savannah saw the prayerful participants and their signs.  She decided not to have an abortion. Visiting with Life Chain coordinators last year, she said, “This is who I would have aborted ten years ago if you hadn’t been here.”

Heh, there. Look at me. I’m getting to be a big boy!

August 7th, Week 20:  If you were to shine a very bright light on my mother’s abdomen, I might slowly move my hand in front of my eyes.  If you make a very loud noise, I just might cover my ears.  But I can also her my mom’s voice and when she sings a lullaby, it soothes me and helps me sleep.  My private parts are clearly visible now, but NO peeking; after all, I’m naked.  And I have a right to privacy, too.  I hope mom is feeling me kick and remembering her prenatal vitamins.

August 14, Week 21:  Hair is starting to grow on my head.  I wonder if I’ll have my dad’s color.  He’s a cool red-head.  I am 20 weeks old now and in another 20 weeks I will be born.  Half-way there.  Yeh!  My legs are getting stronger.  I sleep in the same position now.  I’m over 6 inches tall when I stretch out, and I weigh over 10 ounces.  If mom lies quietly on her back, locates her own heartbeat by finding her pulse, then lays her hand on her belly, she can distinguish her heartbeat from mine.  My heart pumps about 6 gallons of blood every day.

August 21, Week 22:  My tongue is fully formed now.  I’m practicing making noise so I can give people raspberries.  I can hear noises from outside.  Some loud ones scare me.  I know mom’s voice, though, and really like the music she listens to.  I now have fingernails and fingerprints.  I’m not as little as I used to be.  If I could stand up straight, I would be 10 inches long.  Mommy doesn’t know that I’m a boy yet!  She’s waiting to find out.

August 28, Week 23:  I can hear mom’s conversations more clearly now.  I can hear her read, sing, and talk.  I like to kick back, suck my thumb, and listen to her read to me.  My eyelids and eyebrows are fully formed.  My fingernails have grown to the end of my fingers.  I’m going to be very smart because my brain is growing very fast.  I weigh almost a pound.  And, dad, talk to me, too.  I can here you even better than mom.

Abortion Foes Push to Redefine Personhood

Last year’s GOP takeover of the U.S. House and statehouses across the country
has dramatically changed the shape of the nation’s abortion debate. It has also
given a boost to an even more far-reaching effort: the push to legally redefine
when life itself begins.

The question being raised in legal terms is: When does someone become a
person?  Read more here

Third Annual Pageant! Register Soon

The third annual Miss Right to Life of Georgia pageant will be held at the John S. Burd Center in Gainesville July 29-30th, 2011. Miss Right to Life of Georgia is the very first and only Right to Life benefit pageant in the country!

The pageant is open to young women ages up to 22 years old living in the state of Georgia. These young women not only receive the chance to serve as a reigning queen for a year, but are also encouraged to use their platform to nurture pro life values in girls their age, as well as give back to their community.

Contestants not only compete on stage, but also with a personal interview that gives light to their genuine pro life beliefs. The college aged winner will also receive a $500 college scholarship. As well as raising money for such a worthy cause, last year’s participants volunteered over one hundred hours of community service giving back to the elderly, disabled, and others in need.
