"Do I treat abortion like what it is?"

We are wrapping up our time in D.C.  Tomorrow we head to Crown Point, Indiana, outside of Chicago, for an event with Heart for the Next Generation.  If you are in the area, please consider coming.

But before we head out, I'd like to recap this week.

Last week, my boss, Jeff White, wrote that sometimes God gives opportunities when they are least expected.  We found that to be true again this week!  Who knew we would be in D.C. right when the scandalous news that Planned Parenthood sells baby parts would break?  Our trip to join Created Equal in D.C. couldn't have been timed better!

1.       With the bus full of 60 "Justice Riders" we were able to blow the social media world up and make the video go viral!

2.       We called upon Speaker Boehner to investigate and defund Planned Parenthood, and several hours later, it happened!

3.       Our conversations with D.C. residents and tourists from the around the country and world were more fruitful than ever because, for the first time in a long time, the public was confronted with the reality of what abortion does to unborn children!

This is exactly the kind of thing I have been praying for!  This scandal has the ability to create a groundswell that may result in some significant strides toward ensuring equal protection for the unborn.

We know of some campaigns in the works right now that will do just that, and we will keep you posted, so stay tuned.  We need to hold Planned Parenthood's feet to the fire, keep them off balance.

Here's what I want you to do right now.  Ask yourself, "Do I treat abortion like what it is?"  That's what I have been asking myself the last couple years.  If abortion is murder, why don't we act like it?

Are you ready to love the Lord your God with all of your heart, mind and strength, and your neighbor as ourselves?  Love isn't a shallow feeling, but real acts of sacrifice.  Are you ready to sacrifice?  Are you ready to give until it hurts?

God wants us to be a part of His great love for humanity, because He loves us and wants us to experience His love for the world.  We should love because He first loved us, and gave Himself for us, at great cost to Himself.  He gave until it hurt - a lot.

And now He is giving us a great opportunity to be a part of His self-sacrificing love.  Get ready.

For Life,
