Fotolia 93207686 SOne Christmas gift from my Dad stands out—not as much for the gift itself, although it was great—but more for the enduring nature of its lessons that continue to teach after more than 50 years.

It was a big box in a plain brown wrapper with a tag for the three oldest children in our large family. We couldn't have been more excited! We tore into the wrapping only to find another box and another. Crumpled newspapers stuffing each box flew in all directions as we eagerly sought to find the gift inside. Somewhat deflated we finally came upon a really small box with a folded note inside. A note is what we are getting for Christmas? I swallowed my disappointment and hoped that the note would lead us outside to something really big that couldn't be wrapped. I don't remember the exact words, but the note informed us that we could choose one male calf from the barn, raise it for a year, and then sell it at auction and buy bicycles with the money. oh. . .OH!

Fotolia 83878540 XSA recent article posted online at The Times Irish News described a tragic pregnancy. At twenty weeks gestation the mother received the news that her baby was dying of a chromosomal disorder. She described the period of waiting until the heartbeat stopped as "five weeks of torture". The author of the article clearly meant to use the mother's story as indication that Ireland needs to change it's restrictive abortion law to allow abortion in such cases.

Q. Are the pro life laws of Ireland responsible for this woman's experience with her pregnancy?

Medical Directives can reflect faith in Christ Print E-mail

POAHC-PALife is unpredictable and Scripture teaches us that there is a time appointed time for each of us to die. None of us knows when that time will come. When disease or accident threaten life, families can be thrown into the emotion and stress of making life and death decisions without warning. As Christians who are 'pro-life' we are wise to provide directives for our families and doctors that honor God's ownership of our lives and give witness to our trust in His provision for us even beyond death. The principles that guide us are that we will neither hasten death or prolong life by burdensome treatments when there is no hope of recover. Always we will provide care, comfort and nutrition.
