Recently I have been doing a TON of research in order to write a huge research paper on abortion.  I've come upon many, many, interesting websites, but the best, by far, is Abort73.  They have everything on here!  Statistics, the history of abortion, tee-shirts, links, and much, much more.  There are some graphic pictures and videos, so be wary. 

God bless!

November Meeting with Shannon Buckner

At our November meeting, we had the pleasure of having sidewalk counselor, Shannon Buckner (in the middle), come and speak to us.  She covered a wide range of topics all tied into the pro-life movement and abortion from sidewalk counseling to the effects of abortion on a woman and her body.
