I Will Match Your Donation

The following is a message from the good people at the HOPE Center here in Woodstock, GA...


A Gift of Life

When you financially support The Hope Center, you are helping us provide physical, emotional and spiritual support and a hand of friendship to women and men facing pregnancy-related issues.

The HOPE Center is a place that promotes life. It is a place that offers life alternatives to those who fear their pregnancy as opposed to embrasing it. I feel so strongly about the issue of abortion and the good that The HOPE Center does that I am willing to match all donations posted in the comments section of this blog post. If you would like to make a donation to THE HOPE Center, please leave a comment with the amount that you would like to donate. If you don't feel comfortable posting your name with your comment, please anoynomously post your donation amount. At the end of the week I will match everyone's donation. If I get 5 responses for a donation of $5, I'll donate $25. If I get 10 donations of $10, I'll donate $100. Help me save lives. Please make a donation to The Hope Center. If you'd like to donate please don't forget to post your donation amount in the comments section of this post. You can make your donation out and mail to:

Thank you and God bless you all!

P.S. - FOCA is set to be signed if congress passis it on January 21-22. If made a law then all limitations on abortion will be lifted which will result in the following:
1)All hospitals, including Catholic hospitals will be required to perform abortions upon request. If this happens, Bishops vow to close down all Catholic hospitals, more then 30% of all hospitals in the United States
2)Partial birth abortions would be legal and have no limitations
3)All U.S. tax payers would be funding abortions
4)Parental notification will no longer be required
5)The number of abortions will increase by a minimum of 100,000 annually.

Perhaps most importantly the government would now have control in the issue of abortion. This could result in a future amendment that would force women by law to have abortions in certain situations (rape, down syndrome babies, etc.) and could even regulate how many children women are ALLOWED to have (China does this now). Needless to say this information is disturbing, but sadly true. As Catholics, as Christians, as anyone who is against the needless killing of innocent children, we must stand as one. We must stop this horrific act before it becomes law. The time is now to do something about it!

The Plan:
To say a novena (9 days of prayer) along with fasting starting today. For Catholics, the prayer of choice will be the rosary with intentions to stop the FOCA. For non Catholics I encourage you to pray your strongest prayers with the same intentions, also for nine consecutive days. The hope is that this will branch and blossom as to become a global effort with maximum impact. Be sure to fast at least twice during the novena. Remember that with God all things are possible and the power of prayer is undeniable.

If you read this post, please email it or direct friends, family members, fellow students and coworkers to this site. My goal is to receive 10 donation requests. I can only reach that goal if you help me. Once again, thank you and God bless you all!
