In memory of the babies killed by abortion, I post this picture of my grandmother, Wanda Witowski Koretzky, a pious Catholic woman, as a young infant nurse with one of her patients.
My mother was working in the comptroller's office at Misrecordia Hospital in the Bronx when Roe v. Wade was decided. A doctor she knew, the head of obstetrics, said to her, "I'll be damned if any will be done in this hospital." This doctor was the father of five adopted children.
If you are looking for a great example of how God's mercy and love has worked, go no further than the atory of Norma McCorvey. She was "Jane Roe" in "Roe v. Wade," and over time went from being vehemently pro-choice to becoming pro-life (and Catholic, as well) to creating a ministry to help the women and babies destroyed by abortion.
I read today that Norma is having troubles making ends meet, since she has become the primary caretaker for a friend who helped out Norma during the worse times of her life. I would not wait for Sarah Weddington to spring to the rescue - indeed, see if you can even fnd Norma's name on Sarah's website for the Weddington Center. Send even a note of support to Norma through her ministry website.
Abortion kills. That is the truth. For those who still remain unconvinced, read this article (warning: it is very, very graphic, but it needs to be).
