This weekend all across the US people will begin to celebrate the Roe v. Wade decision. Some will look at the ruling and see an argument that promotes individuality, self-identity, and ownership. This is a flawed point of view. Life is Life. And you can go back through time to see that even the Founding Fathers, a group of Christians, agnostics and atheist agreed that, “we hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Below is a RePost from ProLifeBlogs.com and a link to Erin Manning’s Blog as well. I have also included the wikipedia page with inofrmationabout the Roe Case. If you are still in-doubt as to the validity of the case or the Supreme Courts authority to make the ruling please read the following quotes from Justices White and Rehnquist.

“I find nothing in the language or history of the Constitution to support the Court’s judgment. The Court simply fashions and announces a new constitutional right for pregnant mothers and, with scarcely any reason or authority for its action, invests that right with sufficient substance to override most existing state abortion statutes. The upshot is that the people and the legislatures of the 50 States are constitutionally disentitled to weigh the relative importance of the continued existence and development of the fetus, on the one hand, against a spectrum of possible impacts on the mother, on the other hand. As an exercise of raw judicial power, the Court perhaps has authority to do what it does today; but, in my view, its judgment is an improvident and extravagant exercise of the power of judicial review that the Constitution extends to this Court.” –Justice Byron White

“To reach its result, the Court necessarily has had to find within the scope of the Fourteenth Amendment a right that was apparently completely unknown to the drafters of the Amendment. As early as 1821, the first state law dealing directly with abortion was enacted by the Connecticut Legislature. By the time of the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment in 1868, there were at least 36 laws enacted by state or territorial legislatures limiting abortion. While many States have amended or updated their laws, 21 of the laws on the books in 1868 remain in effect today.” – Justice Rehnquist

Response to tomorrow’s “Ask Them What They Mean By ‘Choice’ Blog Day,” aka “Blog Against Pro-Abort Cover-Up Rhetoric for Killing Children Day,” has been overwhelming!

In the past 40 hours 6789 bloggershave signed up to spend some amount of their day tomorrow disallowing pro-aborts from posting about their ambiguous blathery “Blog for Choice Day” unanswered. Pro-lifers will ask them to explain what “choice” actually means.
And we’re not just talking blogging. All pro-lifers can participate by posting on social media such as Facebook and Twitter, too.
On Twitter use the hashtag #prochoice and copy @NARAL and @JillStanek if you have room on your messages. Then track the #prochoice hashtag throughout the day and respond to pro-abort tweets.
Bloggers – FB and tweet links to your posts, including the hashtag and @NARAL, @JillStanek.
Since NARAL is the sponsor of the other side’s blog celebration of the freedom to kill innocent babies, here is NARAL’s contact info:

I’m not guaranteeing pro-life messages will get through or stay up, but you can try.
Also google “Blog for Choice” frequently throughout the day, since NARAL has asked its supporters to tag their posts with that phrase. Try to comment on their posts.

Always maintain decorum.
NARAL has yet to post the names of the blogs participating. If it ever does, I’ll crosspost.
I’m having a hard time keeping up with bloggers emailing their desire to participate. Will update the list when I can.

So, “Choice” = What, Exactly?

>FOC: Upper Big Branch Fund

>Friend of Coal,

As everyone across West Virginia and the United States now know, 29 brave miners were lost during a tragic explosion at the Upper Big Branch mine in the Big Coal River community of Montcoal, West Virginia. The Friends of Coal is proud to support the efforts of the Upper Big Branch Family Fund (www.upperbigbranchfamilyfund.com). The Fund was created by WVU Head Basketball Coach Bob Huggins and a group of young West Virginians. Every dime collected through the Fund will go directly to the lost miners’ families. Scholarships will be set up for their surviving children and families will be offered assistance to meet the financial burdens that often come with losing a loved one.

The miners lost are a part of our coal mining family. We are saddened by our loss; it is a loss that won’t soon be forgotten around Montcoal or in West Virginia. Coal mining is a proud West Virginia tradition – and one that provides millions with the energy needed to turn the lights on or drive a car.

As a Friend of Coal, we hope you’ll join Coach Bob Huggins in supporting the Upper Big Branch Family Fund. A donation of $10, $25, $50, $100, or even more will make a difference. Donations can be made securely online at www.upperbigbranchfamilyfund.com.

Again, every penny raised – every single penny – will be divided among the 29 families – to help with immediate financial burdens or to plan for higher education.

Coach Huggins has often said the greatest resource in West Virginia isn’t coal but our people. People who work hard and do right by their families. People like West Virginia’s coal miners.
This is a good cause and we hope you’ll give whatever you can. Donate easily online now or you may send a check to “Upper Big Branch Family Fund, PO Box 4444, Morgantown, WV 26505“. It takes just a moment and your kindness will make an incredible difference.

It’s times such as these that our obligation to be our brother’s keeper or our sister’s keeper – to be a good neighbor – is the most profound. Join with Coach Bob Huggins, the Young West Virginians for Coal, and the Friends of Coal in supporting the Upper Big Branch Family Fund today.

The Upper Big Branch Family Fund has filed as a 501c3 not-for-profit charitable corporation. Donations will be tax-deductible.
