Thank you for sharing the article about Dr.Miller's photographic work providing pictures of aborted babies. People need to see these images.
I lost a baby to miscarriage at 11 weeks gestation. My child fit in the palm of my right hand.
Keep up the great work.
God Bless You, Angela Griggs
Angela, I am so sorry for your loss!Posted by: bethany at October 12, 2009 1:57 PM
I am so sorry. I will be praying for you. I held my baby in the palm of my hand as well at 10 weeks.
Just saw you speak here in Fort Wayne last night. Am kicking myself that I didn't talk to you in the back at the end. I brought my 14 year old and she was touched (as I was) by your words. God bless you and protect you! You are motivating us all to get off the sidelines and get busy! Love and prayers for you and your family! Love, Ruth Beier, Fort Wayne, IN
Sorry Jill. One question. Do you think that contraception is one of the reasons that our culture is disconnected from it's own moral values? To me contraception and abortion are 2 leaves on the same plant and until we address contraception and abortion together--I think we will continue to be disconnected. Just MHO. I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
Ruth, I think that Jill would agree with you on that issue.
You can look in her archives on "contraception" and see much of what she has spoken about regarding contraceptives in the past. Hope that helps!
A lot of us here agree with you about contraception, Ruth. Contraception is the heart of abortion.Posted by: Bobby Bambino at October 13, 2009 7:37 AM

I don't mean to split hairs, but I would say that harmful attitudes connected to contraception is the heart of abortion. If people embraced the fact that sex is designed for procreation and contraception is merely an attempt to delay or limit pregnancy, coupled with a consensus that the unborn are fully human with the right to life, would this not be acceptable? I suppose one could argue that society's desire for consequence-free sex inevitably causes us to develop these unrealistic attitudes about sex with contraception, but putting that notion aside, isn't it our misguided attitudes that are the problem and not the contraception itself?Posted by: Janette at October 13, 2009 1:58 PM
I agree with Janette. But I might also point out that teenagers, towards which contraception is mainly appealing, can be stupid in the face (I can say that, since I am one), and they'll still be idiots about sex if/once abortion is outlawed; it's natural, at our age, to assume we're invincible. So it's like a catch-22: they'll be stupid with contraception, and there will be pregnancies, OR they'll be stupid WITHOUT contraception and then there'll DEFINITELY be pregnancies--only without it, they might feel vindicated and they're prone to be more reckless with the baby (drinking, etc.--again because they're stupid) rather than admitting that it was their fault for not using adequate protection. One way or another, outlawing contraception will only hurt.
That's just my two cents.Posted by: Abel at October 14, 2009 6:44 PM
