by Larry Plachno- In recent months we have seen pro-life people and religious leaders moving beyond abortion and starting to work in the area of supporting marriage. Even Pope Francis concentrated on the importance of marriage at a recent audience.
One of the more interesting new developments was the March for Marriage in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, June 19. Sponsored by the National Organization for Marriage and the Family Research Council, the event attracted numerous church leaders and teens. Many of the marchers indicated that they were not protesting anything but were supporting traditional marriage and the right of a child to a mom and a dad. Some participants suggested that the event should grow annually like the March for Life. Continue reading →

Prolifecorner.com- “God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish, but might have eternal life.”
Newspapers in California carried a story not too long ago about a State Highway Patrol officer who received a call to rush to a nearby bridge. A distraught woman was about to jump off the bridge, more than four hundred feet above the floor of a deep gorge.

There, high above the rocky gorge, the two women talked for two hours, the officer offering her hope and assurance while quietly struggling with her own panic. Finally, the desperate woman agreed to come away from the railing and get help. Continue reading →
