4th Trimester

UN Experts Say Mothers Who Killed Their Newborns Must Go Free By Stefano Gennarini, J.D.
NEW YORK, February 6 (C-Fam) Guadalupe was convicted of murdering her newborn baby. Her case failed multiple appeals. But now she is is free, courtesy of a multi-year campaign by abortion groups and pressure from UN officials.

Six UN experts praised El Salvador for pardoning Carmen Guadalupe Vásquez Aldana last week. She was 7 years into a 30-year sentence after being found guilty of murder. Her case is the centerpiece in a campaign to depict El Salvador’s abortion laws as oppressive and unfair.
Note, the children were not in utero when they were killed.

Life is but a Weaving (The Tapestry Poem) By: Corrie ten Boom
My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me.
I cannot choose the colors
He weaveth steadily.
Oft’ times He weaveth sorrow;
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.
Not ’til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And reveal the reason why.
The dark threads are as needful
In the weaver’s skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned
He knows, He loves, He cares;
Nothing this truth can dim.
He gives the very best to those
Who leave the choice to Him.

God Bless America,
Jay G.
