missed opportunity tonight

I just found out they were having a prayer vigil outside one of Planned Parenthood's "cocktails for choice" fundraisers tonight.  I didn't find out about it earlier partly because our computer was down on its internet ability, partly becasue I wasn't checking my yahoo mail as often as I should have.  They have huge turnouts at those events.

The upcoming Mother of Life Conference

They will be holding the second annual Mother-of-Life Conference this year at the Jenny Craig Pavillion at USD.  I just made arrangements to buy a ticket for $35, which I may pick up when they hold vigil at the Planned Parenthood clinic next Saturday.  I had hoped to go last year, but work precluded that.  Lila Rose was at that one, and I would like to have met her.

Update, Aug 3:  I was able to get the ticket from Pat Hansen.

More on the Del Mar Fair

I went down to the fair Thursday to help with the pro-life table there.  They had a bunch of literature, including some from Life Perspectives which operates the Lifewalk I take place in once a year.  I wasn’t able to stay as long as I would have liked, partly because I was tired and the chairs weren’t comfortable, and I needed something to eat. 

I also went today and it was a bit more productive.  We had a lady come by who wanted to post a list of adoption agencies and we gave them to her.  I also learned a bit more about Sue Lopez, the lady who helped me get back into the swing of things after too long an absence.  What I learned was that during said absence pro-lifers were protesting abortion at the clinics by holding up the gruesome pictures of aborted babies, and it was Sue who helped steer pro-life in San Diego away from this and toward prayer vigils and a more conciliatory approach to the women who come in. Unfortunately my return proved bittersweet.

I recently became an admin for Pro Life Pagans at Facebook.  I’d first joined that page a few weeks ago, out of curiosity at first.  Some posts argued that abortion was inconsistent with the wiccan rede, which states “Live you must, and let to live” and “[if] it harm none, do what ye will.”
