"I couldn't the bear the reality of what I would see"


Kayla's Story
Uploaded by voteyesforlife

As many of you know, this past year the South Dakota Legislature passed a law banning almost all abortions in that state. A commendable and bold move. Well, this Tuesday in that same state there is a ballot initiative seeking voter ratification to strengthen the case for this needed law as it faces court challenges. The stories on this website are all worth watching. I warn you that you'll need tissues. You will weep for joy and sorrow, but weep away. It is important to be reminded that defending the defenseless is not partisan or ideological, it is right! Life is so very precious. There is no such thing as life not worthy of life.

As Blessed Teresa of Calcutta said during her speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in 1994 "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." As we approach the feast of All Souls, let us not forget the millions of aborted children. We must also pray for healing and forgiveness for women, like Kayla, who have made this tragic choice. God's grace, His mercy is more than sufficient to overcome even sins as serious as the taking of innocent life.

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To you do we cry,
poor banished children of Eve.
To you do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears
Turn then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us,
and after this exile
show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb,
Jesus.
O clement, O loving,
O sweet Virgin Mary.
