Hillary Clinton Starts Week on Women's Issues by Promoting Abortion
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Hillary Clinton began a week devoted to women's issues on Monday but she used her first policy speech to bash President Bush on the issue of abortion. Clinton says she has a lead in the Democratic race for president because of the backing of women but she may find it more difficult, one poll shows, to attract women next year. Clinton started her week devoted to women with an appearance on ABC's "The View" and plans to deliver a policy address in New Hampshire on Tuesday. She also had an appearance with a New York activist group Monday and, criticized President Bush on abortion by saying he had appointed judges to the Supreme Court who had limited abortion rights. The high court, in April, found that the nation's ban on partial-birth abortions, which Bush signed into law, was constitutional. The ban enjoyed the support of anywhere from 60-80 percent of Americans depending on the poll. Clinton told the television program that she's happy some voters support her because she is the only woman in the race but wants to be supported because she is the best candidate.
Today the The New York Times published an article on the presidential candidate's positions on the issue of abortion. To access this article click here:

Sometimes people hesitate to become involved in ministry because they believe that their troubles, past and current provide a negative witness to others. I think it is important for the clients of Lois' Lodge to understand that those of us that serve at Lois' Lodge are all just sinners saved by grace, striving to live a life that is pleasing to our Lord and Savior. In God's eyes, none of us are any better than the troubled families that we seek to help. We all struggle with our sin nature. The Bible says that, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God"; Romans 3:23. As Christians we believe that the only difference between those of us that have invited Christ into our life and those that have not is that 1) we have the assurance that no matter how many times we mess up we are forgiven and 2) the assurance of a wonderful future into eternity. John 10:28 tells us, "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand". If you are not a Christian and are interested in learning more about how you can have these assurances see: "The Secret to Life Change", in the right hand column of this blog. Also, please feel free to check in with me. I would love to talk to you more about this. Debbie

"A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her."
When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin'"
I'm whispering "I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven."
When I say... "I am a Christian" I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
When I say.. "I am a Christian" I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
When I say.. "I am a Christian" I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am worth it.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
When I say... "I am a Christian" I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, some how!
