I attended the closing ceremony for the 40 Days for Life program. Roger Lopez and Gene Villinski ran the ceremony along with Vicki Whitmire, Trippy Seelig, and Bishop Flores. I also saw Elena di Ventra and Timmerie Millington, both of whom have worked on the project in the past. Timmerie has a few blogs on pro-life activities. I also saw Pat Hansen, Barbara Sheddy, and a few others from the vigils. A post-abortive woman from Silent No More spoke of how many women aren't able to forgive themselves after an abortion; it hits close to home, but not for the reason the reader might think. When I was younger my dad and I were close, but as we grew older a number of things went terribly wrong. Now my mom has had a recurrence of angiosarcoma; they may know in April whether the gleevec has helped.
The next pro-life activity will be the Pro-Life Stations of the Cross, which I also did last year.
Other news: Planned Parenthood is building a $6.5 million facility in Fort Worth, Texas. A contractor walked out after learning the project was for a Planned Parenthood building.
A Florida dad relates that he wanted his then-girlfriend to have an abortion in 1964 when he was 19, and now thanks his lucky stars that it was illegal at the time.
