Joy Battista

"Joy Battista" stands for the Joy of John the Baptist at the presence of Christ.

"And how have I deserved that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold, the moment that the sound of thy greeting came to my ears, the babe in my womb leapt for joy." Luke 1:43-44

This blog is dedicated to all who seek the Joy of Christ's presence in their own lives.
This blog is also dedicated to the unborn, for John the Baptist was an unborn when he leapt for joy at the presence of Jesus who was also unborn at the time.

We Are All Affected by Abortion

I just have to dig in and make a statement about how sad our culture remains yet we can be so hopeful at the same time. But it is essential that we vote pro-life and here is why:

Will was at work a couple days ago in a meeting at the State of Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. The group he was meeting with started talking about charitable giving. The conversation came up because the State had just gone through their annual United Way Campaign. So they started sharing who they like to give to. One of his co-workers mentioned that she always gives to planned parenthood. This is so sad. And offensive I might add. Who wants to hear that somebody gives to an organization that kills tiny innocent unborn babies?

Well, the next day at Will's work he got a call from another co-worker asking him if Medicaid covered abortions (Will is a program specialist and answers technical questions to help people determine eligibility for Governement aide.). Thankfully he could say no. But will this be the case in the future? Yes, only if we vote pro-life. I hope Will is never in the position to have to answer yes to that question!!

Please vote pro-life in future elections with an eye toward pro-life candidates because we are all affected by abortions whether we are directly involved in them or seem far removed from them such as Will thought he was. Sadly, Will found himself personally affected by abortion. A Health and Human Services Agency should be protecting lives always, not disbursing funds to take life away and our votes are very important to keeping it that way.

Please consider how your votes, views, and charitable giving affect others.
Charity is about love. Abortion, quite literally, is the opposite of love.
