Monday, January 18th, 2010 saw history remembered and also history in the making. Martin Luther King Day is a federal holiday held on the third Monday of January every year. It celebrates the life and achievements of Martin Luther King Jr. who was best known for his campaigns to end segregation and speak out against injustice. This year, on this commemorative day, another group of people were speaking out against injustice. This campaign was not just about race, though it is very much a large part of the issue. This campaign was about life. Planned Parenthood is building what will be the largest abortion facility in the U.S. right in the center of 4 minority neighborhoods in Houston Texas. Thousands of pro-life advocates were present outside this so called "super-center" to show Texas and the rest of the nation that they do not support this kind of slaughtering, abuse towards women and racial targeting in their backyards. Here is local news coverage of the rally outside this massive abortion facility.

To my fellow Lifers who were there in body and those who were there in spirit...thank you for standing up for what is right, for speaking out against injustice and for working to protect the innocent! We must keep shining a light on this issue and sharing the truth with love and compassion! I pray that we will soon have a holiday to commemorate the largest human rights movement of our time by first seeing an end to abortion. Thank you for staying true and providing hope for our future.
