I heard this song (“Life is Beautiful” by The Afters) in “October Baby” last weekend, and have been hooked on it ever since. It’s euphonious and melodic. Not only that, it’s inset with an equally important message: life is beautiful.
“October Baby” chronicles an abortion survivor’s journey to find herself and discover who her birth mother is. The protagonist (played by Rachel Hendrix) discovers she was adopted following a failed abortion – which was chiefly responsible for her recurring health problems throughout the film. When Hannah (Rachel Hendrix) meets her birth mother, she immediately discovers her mom isn’t interested in being a part of her life. Hannah seeks to fill this void after the encounter. She inevitably finds solace in forgiveness, and moves forward with her life.
What makes life so beautiful and wholesome? Simple: it’s a birthright.
The Declaration of Independence says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Life is an inalienable right afforded to all Americans. It is a right no should deny you of. It is the great gift of all. It is YOUR birthright.
Unfortunately, Democrats and their feminist allies are working tirelessly to deny unborn babies life. They will tell you that a fetus is a parasite, or better yet, a clump of cells. This poster from Live Action beautifully counters this statement:
“October Baby” summed up the importance of granting life to all. No matter the circumstance, everyone deserves to live and lead a great life.
“Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.” – James Dean
East Carolina University junior Zach Campbell, who is unabashedly pro-life, has written a song about why he admires pro-life (and conservative) women.
For those of you unfamiliar with his work, Campbell won 2nd place in Live Action/Students for Life of America’s “Tell Congress” YouTube video contest last year. Here’s more about the contest:
The contest was designed to support the Pence Amendment, which the House of Representatives approved, but which the U.S. Senate defeated — although both chambers of Congress are still debating how to solve the federal budget issue and whether Planned Parenthood will receive federal funds.
After receiving dozens of videos from youth across the country explaining why Congress should de-fund Planned Parenthood, Live Action and Students for Life of America announced today the winners of their “Tell Congress” YouTube Video Contest. The contest was open to all high-school and college-age youth between 14 and 25 and contestants were urged to use creativity in addressing Congress and explaining why they should de-fund Planned Parenthood.
Here is the winning video:
Now, Zach is calling on pro-life females to help him with his latest video project. Here’s more about it:
So I’m making a music video for my new pro-life song, and if you’re pro-life and a girl, I want YOU to be in it! Just send me a 5 sec long clip of you with a pro-life sign, lip-syncing the words, or something else creative, and I’ll put you in it after I’ve received all the videos. Thanks!

Here is the winning video of the “Defund Planned Parenthood” video contest.
It is a shocking albeit enlightening story from a young woman whose mother was forced to have countless abortions at the insistence of her father and Planned Parenthood.

I’m honored to announce another opportunity I’ve been offered.
Family Research Council has invited me again to participate in a twitter event, Sex Trafficking in America: from The Boulevard to Planned Parenthood, on March 15th, 2011 at 11am PT/2pm ET. I will be tweeting live about speakers, interesting facts, and important information during the event.
It is important to note the danger of sex trafficking, as Planned Parenthood has made it clear that they would facilitate abortions for pimps and their clients.
Taken from the FRC event page:
Each year, right under our noses, 100,000 American children each year are victimized by sex traffickers. Make no mistake, this is not a problem that’s just “over there.” These heinous crimes are happening in our own backyards. A special live video webcast hosted by Family Research Council on Tuesday, March 15 at 2:00 p.m. ET will bring together leading experts shed light on this growing problem that affects every corner of our nation — from neighborhoods, playgrounds, and malls to the local Planned Parenthood clinic. You will also learn what actions you can take to help restore these victims, and stop those who prey on them.
Webcast participants include:
- Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council
- J. Robert (Bob) Flores, former Administrator of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJD)
- Lila Rose, President, Live Action
- Pat Trueman, President, PornHarms.com and former Chief of the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Criminal Division, U. S. Department of Justice
- Samantha Vardeman, Senior Director, Shared Hope International
- Tina Frundt, Founder and Executive Director, Courtney’s House
- Lisa Thompson, Liaison for the Abolition of Sexual Trafficking at The Salvation Army
Kudos to Lila Rose and LiveAction for exposing Planned Parenthood in an ACORN-esque manner!
Watch the video and spread it around.
