Half A Million Marching On D.C.

Not many people even know that there is a March for Life every January.  Hardly any news or media sources ever cover it, because it’s “unpopular”, so I’ve decided to.

Over half a million people attend each year, men, women and children alike.  The cause?  Ever since the infamous decision of Roe Vs. Wade in 1973, abortion was legalized in the United States.  Half a million people in Washington D.C. alone, not including the march that occurs in San Francisco, peacefully protest for the Supreme Court to overthrow Roe Vs. Wade.

Why?

We believe that life is sacred from conception to natural death, and this deeply includes the life of a child during the earliest stages of his or her life.  We believe that a “person is a person, no matter how small”, and that “our worth is not based on circumstances, but in our shared humanity.”

We have nothing against the rights of women, and the right to privacy of a woman’s body.   Nothing at all, in fact.  Many great women are supporters of the pro-life movement (can you argue with Mother Teresa?).  The problem is, we believe (or know) that we aren’t talking about the body of the mother, when it comes to abortion.  The body in question is the baby’s.  Women don’t have two heads, two hearts, and eight limbs during pregnancy.  The baby is attached to the uterus, and his/her cells have their own genetic code/DNA.  We aren’t talking about the body of the woman/mother, who DOES have a right to her body.  But that woman/mother should NOT have the right to kill and dispose of the body of her child, who is another human being.

I know there are cases of abortion where the line between right and wrong seems to get blurry.  “What if a woman is raped?  Don’t you have any sympathy for her?”

Yes, absolutely.  In fact, I don’t think it would be right to condemn a mother who was in a desperate situation, without anyone to help her, and she chose to have an abortion.  But that doesn’t make abortion right; it doesn’t mean you can kill a completely helpless, innocent person.  Abortion is objectively evil, even if it is sometimes subjectively understandable…unfortunately, that still doesn’t make it OK.

I understand why some people view abortion as a “necessary evil”.  But that’s why SO many people in the pro-life movement are there to help mothers in need.  Whereas Planned-Parenthood doesn’t offer women any true assistance or prenatal care (if you don’t believe me, just call PP!), there are plenty of Crisis Pregnancy Centers where women are given the help they need.  Adoption is an option, too!

There is a need for change in America, and that’s why we march.  Babies need us!

What do you think? Also, if you disagree with this article, let’s have an intellectual DISCUSSION, not a biased rant where we attack each other.

Want a Free Book?

Uh, who doesn’t?

What’s Volume 5 about?  Here’s the description:

Locked in a fight to the death in the subworld of Kiilda, John Hedekira’s only option is to defeat Kiilda if he ever wants to see his little sister again. Meanwhile, Faith is quickly forming a friendship with Tarsh Landid. But when Castrum Fortress is surrounded by the Brown Bandits, it looks like the only thing that will satisfy them is the former “Ghost of Hedekira” (Tarsh Landid)…whether he’s dead or alive!

just give me a chance

Please.

You know that’s all anyone ever asks for.  A chance.  A chance to prove to you that they are who they say they are.  A chance to prove that they’re worth your time.  And the sad but beautiful thing about this world is that we have to rely on each other.  We have to rely on other people to give us a chance.  We can’t give ourselves the opportunities we seek.

This world is built on charity; and if it’s not, it will fall apart…just like it is.  Because instead of being built on charity, our world is built upon greed.

Please.

Just give it a chance.  Give me a chance: that’s all any writer can ask for.

Embark on the Journey.  Start the adventure.  Give me that chance. (Click here)


 

Yes, this is a sob story, or a “sob-post”.  I hope you don’t mind.  I just feel that it’s necessary for people to be completely honest with other human beings.  If I need your help, if I want something from you, I’m going to tell you.  Hopefully you feel that you can do the same thing.  We should feel like, as a community of bloggers, as a community of people, that we can reach out to each other and receive an answer.

Thanks for reading.

Stay awesome!

My Newest Book is Still Free—Limited Time Only!

Red Volume 5

Well, the title says it all!  Thanks so much to all of you that have already downloaded my newest book, Volume 5: Kiilda.  The support you’re showing me is increasingly touching.  I couldn’t do this without you.

Click here to get your free eBook copy of Volume 5!

Volume 5 is the newest book in my series, The Golden Lands.  The Golden Lands (TGL) is a fantasy series, inspired by anime.  Anyone that enjoys a fast-paced, action-filled read can enjoy it.

What’s TGL about? Glad you asked…

The Golden Lands, one of the three worlds of Terra, is supposed to be a place of peace, light, and happiness. But the Golden Lands hasn’t exactly been such a place for John Hedekira, a jaded, hot-headed teenager. His parents disappear when he is thirteen, and he’s left to look after his younger sister and brother. Three years later, John decides that he has had it with the distant, self-pitying dispositions of his siblings, and resolves to shut them out of his life for good…or so he thinks.

But then the fabled monsters of the Dark Lands appear out of nowhere.

They are the living incarnations of Evil itself…and they enter John’s home, kidnapping his siblings and leaving him to bleed to death on the floor of his own house.

But John is not undone so easily. Compelled by his own hatred of the warriors that left him to die, and a sense of duty towards his siblings, John sets out on a quest for vengeance. Joining him is Faith Pinck, a caring, innocent girl who doesn’t yet understand the true motives behind John’s desire to track the evil band of warriors. And in the midst of their adventures as they journey to rescue John’s siblings they begin to uncover a deeper, darker plot that threatens to collide the human world with the world of an unholy, supernatural being.

And here’s the current plot of Volume 5!

Locked in a fight to the death in the subworld of Kiilda, John’s only option is to defeat Kiilda if he ever wants to see his little sister again. Meanwhile, Faith is quickly forming a friendship with Tarsh Landid. But when Castrum Fortress is surrounded by the Brown Bandits, it looks like the only thing that will satisfy them is the former “Ghost of Hedekira”*…whether he’s dead or alive!

Hey all!

Guess what?

The cover for Volume 6 has been finished!!!  And you know what that means…

Volume 5 is ready to be published!  (Because I place the cover of the NEXT book in the back of the current book.)

I still haven’t decided on a release date for Volume 5.  But it will obviously be soon, most likely this weekend.  You all should have some free time to read it, due to Memorial Day 😉

So here’s the cover of Volume 6.  I must say, this is one of the best covers my sister has drawn yet!

The cover of Volume 6 happens to be Frances Beznar, from Volume 4…who is based off of my sister (the person that draws all my covers).  In case you can’t tell from the picture, Frances is a freakin’ boss!!!

So now Volume 5 is ready to be published!  Everyone that has read it thus far thought it was one of the best volumes yet, if not THE best.  I’m really looking forward to hearing what you think of Volume 5…it’s probably one of my personal favorites.

Showing you how awesome anime is…with amazing, incredible, super-detailed pictures!!!

It’s crazy how far the anime-style of art has penetrated society and our culture.  This image is absolutely stunning.  The “realisticness”, the colors, the expression…it’s almost too much to take in.  But I love it.  And that’s why I love anime.
