“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Brilliant video animation about the miracle of prenatal development

Today I want to share an animation of prenatal life developing. The brilliant production was developed by Alexander Tsiarus. It's called CONCEPTION TO BIRTH. We get a hint of the miracle behind every child developing in the mother's womb. Please go to http://www.ted.com/talks/alexander_tsiaras_conception_to_birth_visualized.html

America has Sanctity of Life Week. (See the beautiful video link above promoting it.) It coincides with their day of infamy when abortion became legal across the land by a Supreme Court decision known as Roe V. Wade (January 22 1973). Over 50 million preborn children have been aborted since then. Does Canada have a similar week of observance to coincide with our day of infamy? January 28th 1988 when Canada's Supreme Court struck down our feeble abortion law. I remember the image of a coven of feminists hooting and dancing in celebration on the streets of Toronto.

Our preborn children have no legal protection at any point in their 9th month journey to birth. Canadian taxpayers are forced to pay for every abortion. A woman can have an abortion for any reason at all or no reason whatsoever. And she can have as many as she wants at taxpayer expense. Have Canadian religious leaders come together to establish a Sanctity of Life Week in Canada? If not, why not?
