Face the Facts

I received this email, and thought I'd share it with u all :)


The latest Cry Action project is finally being announced -- it's
called Face the Facts and it's something we'll be doing for the whole
month of March. This project will be primarily focused on Facebook,
but I invite those of you who don't have Facebook accounts to still
get involved -- post blog entries advertising the event, send out
email blasts to your friends who may own Facebook accounts, post about
it at message forums and talk about the facts involved to your friends
at school and church. The key is raising awareness -- Facebook is a
great way to do this, but there are other great and effective ways.
Any questions or suggestions for ideas, feel free to contact me -- I
value your input.

Many more projects to come!

Thanks for being a voice for the voiceless -- and God bless you!


FACE THE FACTS --

Description:

Face the Facts is a campaign to spread the truth regarding the
overriding social justice issue of our day.

Slavery still exists. Poverty exists. We have not won against AIDS.
All of these things destroy the body, stealing life and freedom, and
are seen for what they are. But one issue is not. There is one thing
that destroys millions of human beings, stealing life and freedom from
human souls, that is still seen as okay -- justifiable.

If you don't believe me when I say this is abortion, maybe it's not
your fault. Maybe you haven't heard the truth -- maybe you've even
been lied to. Maybe the facts have been hidden. Well, I say it's time
we prove them, and face them. It's time we educate ourselves, and our
world.

When people heard about the extermination camps the Nazis instigated
during World War II, most didn't believe. 'Why would one group of
people kill another group of people?' 'That just doesn't happen these
days.' 'Things like that don't happen in a civilized society.'
Research history -- those are the kind of thoughts that went through
people's heads. Yet, horribly, they learned the truth -- near the end
of the war they found out it was all true.

You may argue that abortion is not murder. But let me just ask you,
What if it is? If there is even the slightest possibility, wouldn't
you want to know -- before it's too late? If I am wrong, I am a
lunatic. But if I am right, consider the possibility, the magnitude of
this crime, and don't allow history to repeat itself any longer --
don't let a holocaust continue while you turn your head.



Action:

This campaign is incredibly simple: "Attend" the event, invite your
friends, and commit to posting one fact/statistic in your status each
day for the 31 days of the month of March.

And then spread the word to every pro-life group/cause you know of --
several have already joined us and will be sending out action alerts
via their mailing lists, but we need your help spreading the word if
this will have the impact needed.

abortions. -Abort73.com

23.
More than 70% of abortions -- at least 800,000 each year -- take place
after 6 weeks, bringing an end to the embryo's heartbeat and

Wow! This is amazing!
Another email i got today said that we should do this:
Get a red envelope. You can buy them at Kinko's, or at party supply stores. On the front, address it to:
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, D.C. 20500

On a note inside, write the following message:

"This envelope represents one child who died in abortion. It is empty because that life was unable to offer anything to the world. Responsibility begins with conception."

Allie said...

Yup! That's a good idea too!!!

Okay so, you can send an email to cry.action.alert@gmail.com and if u want to subscribe to the emails and get more info about getting involved in pro-life movement then put SUBSCRIBE in the subject line!

I find it ironic that we "can't force out morality on" other people. Kind of a silly argument. Why, if that were the case, why wouldn't we make murder and thievery and child abuse and slavery and goodness knows what else legal? After all, there must be someone somewhere who doesn't think murder is wrong.
This is an issue as big as slavery. Same argument from the pro side, too. (That is, if you don't want to ______ [own slaves, abort a fetus], go ahead and don't, but don't tell me what to do.)
Please don't just sit back and agree with Allie on this one. If you agree, do something about it, please. (Thanks to those who already do!)
Solo de gloria!
