Dear Analise, Jonah, and James,

You are precious, you are honored, you are so very loved.  From the moment your daddy and I found out we were pregnant with you, our hearts were full of love for you.  We immediately began envisioning our lives with you.  We wondered about the type of person you would become.  We dreamed about what you would look like and what your sweet voice would sound like.  We knew you were a gift entrusted to us by God.  And we were so very thankful.

My heart is heavy as of late—so very heavy.  The culture in which we live places such little value on your life.  It looks at you as a “choice.”  Mothers are told that the gift which they have been given (no matter the circumstance) is one that they can choose to keep or one that they can ret rid of…and by that, my dear children, I mean kill. 

It is sickening. 

When story after story (such as this one and this or this and even this one just a short drive from our home) receive essentially no coverage from our media, I am reminded of how the respect and dignity of life is fading quickly in this country. 

There are those who are trying to bring to light these issues to light.   

Watch this.  It will make you weep for your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who were lost to these heinous crimes.  And then turn to the Lord and plead for his mercy to radiate into the hearts of these troubled people.

And I cannot forget the powerhouse that is Planned Parenthood who is forever pushing their “choice” and “women’s rights” agenda.  We now have lobbyist trying to pass their evil plans to allow post-birth abortions (a sweeter way to say…murder).  As one of Planned Parenthood lobbyist skirted around the answer (watch below), her non-answer was proof enough—if an abortion “fails,” go ahead and kill the baby on the table.  Snip her spin.  Call it good.  She is dead. The end.

They tell us it’s not murder.  It is choice.  The choice of the woman.  The choice of the doctor.  But certainly not the choice of the child…because that baby?  She had no choice.

Yet, we all know that if a woman delivered her baby in a hospital or at home and minutes after having the baby, decided that she no longer wanted her child and “snipped its spin,” thus killing the baby, she would be considered a murderer and sent to prison.

Where the hell is the logic in that?

A life is a LIFE! 

Geography does not determine life.  God does.  And no matter how you slice it, that life was taken by a dreadful act against the most vulnerable of human beings.   

And so many dear, precious children, some day when you look back over your momma’s letters to you, I want you to know just how precious and loved and honored you are to us.  You are a gift and it is your daddy and I’s prayer that all women will come to understand the gift of life.  We pray with expectant and hope-filled hearts for a change in the culture of death that is strangling America.  We have hope for a change because we place our trust in the Resurrected Lord who defeated death itself. 

“When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”

‘Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?’

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

1 Corinthians 15: 54-57

With all the love that a mother can have for her children,
