WE WILL REMEMBER (and the NWA Respect Life winter 2019 newsletter)

My husband and I had been saving our nickels and dimes for quite some time to make a long-awaited trip to Europe.  I couldn't wait to see shrines like Our Lady of Czestochowa and Divine Mercy, the centuries old monasteries and magnificent cathedrals.  As God would plan it, however, one of the most memorable experiences was both totally unexpected and unknown to me before my well-researched trip.


The last thing many abortionists want is for a woman to see a photograph of her unborn baby.

But thanks to a U.S. Supreme Court decision this week, that’s exactly what is going to happen.  


For the first time in 40 years, there is not a single abortion center in Northwest Arkansas.  Sometimes it's still hard for me to believe.  This newsletter is a bit longer than any before, but what has happened is truly momentous!  I'd like to share about some events prior to Planned Parenthood's move and shortly after.   

Death Penalty Public Forum

with guest panelist Sheila Pursell

On April 15, 2017, Public Discussions NWA held a forum entitled "What if We Could Save  the Lives of Eight Men?  Or Should the State of Arkansas Execute Them?"  NWA Director, Sheila Pursell, presented ALL life is sacred and the right to human life should be supported from conception to natural death due to the inherent goodness of persons.  The facts that the cost of executions are far more substantial than life in prison with out parole, it is not proven that the death penalty deters crime and that the death penalty often prolongs the suffering of the victims family and friends were also discussed. 

Please pray for the victim's loved ones and the 8 men on death row in Arkansas.
