National Pro-Life Youth Rally

We are so excited to announce the first ever National Pro-Life Youth Rally January 24th in Washington, DC!  This rally immediately follows the big annual pro-life march, features music by BarlowGirl and inspirational talks by Eduardo Verastegui (Bella – the movie), Lila Rose (Live Action), David Bereit & Shawn Carney (40 Days for Life), Kristan Hawkins (Students for Life) & your very own – me! (and many more!)
It’s not only our hope of putting on a fun and inspirational rally, but we also want to equip you and the young people attending.  With that in mind we’ll be handing out action kits to the first 5,000 attendees.  So make sure to come out, have fun, get inspired and get equipped!
Because we expect a big turnout and the fact that the park can only hold so many people you need to pre-register to help ensure you a spot at the rally.  You can pre-register here.  When you do Students for Life will send you a free “Abolish Abortion” silicone wristband.  Also, you will be emailed a link to where you can download some free music provided by us, Rock for Life!

Not Many Fans Of Late-Term Abortions
I (obviously) am not a fan of abortion.  Most people aren’t.  All abortions kill a human person and leave another (the mother, sometimes the father and other family members) scared physically, spiritually, emotionally, or all of the above.
But one thing is for sure – Most people REALLY aren’t fans of late-term abortions.  Can you blame them?  A late-term in-utero baby looks much more like you and I as opposed to a first-trimester baby.  Doesn’t make it worse.  Killing is killing.
It’s fascinating to see the latest outrage against late-term abortions.  Leroy Carhart, a late term abortionist started performing his specialty Monday, December 6th in a new location – Germantown, Maryland.  Over 600 pro-lifers showed up on opening day to pray and be a public witness.  That is an awesome showing.  I was very impressed.
Then, the first Saturday of his business (Dec. 11th) over 600 pro-lifers showed up to pray and to be a public witness. Again, awesome!
The other night, (Dec. 13th) over 150 reported pro-lifers showed up at a City Council meeting in Council Bluffs, Iowa to protest another proposed late-term abortion facility opening up by, you guessed it – Leroy Carhart. Again, major awesomeness!
So, as you can see late-term abortions really rile people up – and rightfully so.  But aren’t all abortions the killing of a human person?  Why does the killing of a late-term abortion freak everyone out but not so much as when his or her younger brother or sister is being terminated via abortion?  Aren’t all human persons equal regardless of age / level of development?
I don’t mean to be a downer.  I am really excited that so many people are coming out to oppose abortion.  But where are these same people when it comes to first-trimester abortions?  If abortion kills a human person and we really believe that, then we should be just as horrified when a 12-week old baby in-utero is killed as a 22-week old baby in-utero.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
