An oldie but a goodie…Perfect!

I was telling the story of how we got this whole radio adventure going the other day and remembered one of the first stories that got me thinking, “Why aren’t there more (pro-life) stories like THAT?!” This was one of the key testimonies that eventually inspired us to launching Life Right Now, which in turn, has lead us to becoming heavily involved in the kick-off of Personhood Iowa. Tissue Alert…enjoy! Most definitely worth the 14+ minutes!

On this week’s show:

  • Brittany Maynard update…a roller coaster of emotions. Is saying that Mrs. Maynard is courageous saying those folks that didn’t take their life aren’t?
    • Quantcast

      Brittany Maynard takes her life: One of the weekend’s saddest events was the self-inflicted death of Brittany Maynard, a 29-year old woman who decided that she would end her battle with terminal cancer via doctor-assisted suicide.

      Maynard originally told PEOPLE she’d chosen Nov. 1 to end her life, but on Thursday she released a new video saying she might not do it that day.

      “I still smile and laugh with my family and friends enough that it doesn’t seem like the right time now,” she said in the video recorded Oct. 13 and 14, “but it will come because I feel myself getting sicker; it’s happening each week.”

      Apparently, she changed her mind again. Here are her last words before she took her own life:

      You can read the rest of Rebekah’s piece on the closure of Brittany’s story (for now) here.

  • Adoption Month continues…
    • Ashley Paulson, from A Story In My Heart, joins us with an update of her story and shares her perspective of the beauty  and, sometimes, difficult process of adoption.
