43rd Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

Today I am watching coverage of the March for Life in Washington D.C., where thousands of people are not letting the massive impending snow storm stop them on this 43rd anniversary of the legalization of abortion in America.

I wish I could be there in person, but am grateful to be able to tune in from home.

Here is the video of me speaking at the March for Life in D.C. in 2013 (email subscribers click HERE):

It was a blessing to be there and to share on that day (read about my experience by clicking HERE). I hope it works out for me to go again in the future! I am glad I at least have local marches to be a part of. 

This is something about this day that I shared on my blog last year:

"Today feels like such a heavy and solemn day. I keep thinking about how something that happened on this day 42 years ago, abortion being legalized, impacted my life decades later. I take responsibility for my choice to have an abortion, however, if abortion had not been legal, I never would have sought a back-alley abortion and would have taken responsibility for my choices. I wouldn't be living with the regret that I will carry for the rest of my days. I wouldn't have to imagine who my child would be today. And so many women who have been deceived by the legal right to choose also wouldn't have to carry this pain for life. I am so thankful for how God has healed my heart, but there are days when my heart deeply hurts. Today is one of those days. I think it's important to feel the pain at times, to never forget and to be encouraged to keep fighting, both for the unborn and for the mothers and fathers who find themselves in a situation where they might consider having an abortion."
