Colts Coach Spared From Abortion: The Impact of One Decision for Life

From LifeNews editor Steven Ertelt:
When tens of millions of people around the world tune in for the Super Bowl... they will finally get a chance to see the commercial celebrating the life of Tim Tebow. But viewers may not know Clyde Christensen, the assistant head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, has his own potential abortion story that changed his life.

Coach Christensen had this to say about being spared from abortion:
"I also can't help but look back and think of how easily my life and thus generations to follow could have been snuffed out before it ever got started."

"I can't help but think of a 15-year-old, unwed, pregnant teen who made a courageous decision not to abort her child, but instead gave him a chance at life that over 50 million children since have not had. That child was me,"

"but I am so grateful for her courage to have her child when it wasn't and still isn't to this day the choice of most."

"I am grateful for her unselfishness in wanting the best life for me and the decision that I might benefit from life in another family. I'm touched by her faith in entrusting her child to God with confidence,...She trusted God would find the right family and would watch over her child throughout his life."

"I am a husband, a father of three terrific daughters, and I'm an NFL football coach. I don't know of anyone whose life has been more blessed than mine... Coaching has given me the opportunity to influence many young lives throughout the years. And today, my own beautiful girls have and will continue to impact this world for good. What an impact one right decision can have."

Obama's desire to repeal "Don't ask, don't tell" can actually help to fulfill the "days of Lot" (Luke 17, cf. Gen. 19), the fulfillment of which will hurry up the return of the Heavenly Commander-in-Chief who will make all things straight (pun intended)! Interesting Google articles include "Obama Supports Public Depravity," "Separation of Raunch and State" and "David Letterman's Hate Etc."
For some dessert visit Yahoo and type in "Obama Avoids Bible Verses."
PS - You're invited to use these new pro-life slogans: "Unborn babies should have the right to keep and bear arms - and legs and ears and eyes etc.!" and "Unborn babies should have the same right to be born alive that abortionists had!"
PPS - Super Bowl suits me to a T - Tim Tebow!

Thank you and God bless you for your passionate love and concern for the welfare of the unborn. The good news is that many citizens of the USA in unprecedented numbers are thankfully awakening to the moral threats and challenges that face our nation and are uniting in prayer, fasting and peaceful activism to make a difference for the better--for an end to abortion and for preservation of traditional family values. The Holy Spirit is mobilizing His troops and leading the charge! We have every reason to be hopeful, but we must put our trust in God, persevering in prayer and serving Him faithfully. We also need to PRAY for those who do not respect the right-to-life from conception to natural death and for those who reject traditional family values. Without God's grace we could be among those who see no harm in abortion or lifestyles contrary to God's law. The common enemy of us all is the devil and his troops who seek to destroy us and pull us all down into Hell with them for all eternity. We need to have compassion and pray for those who are being deceived by the devil and do for them what we would want done for us if we believed as they do. Those of us blessed with knowledge of the truth need to pray and fast for those who are still in the dark, including President Obama. Check out, a powerful campaign of prayer, fasting, public witness and public outreach.
