Horton Hears a Who & Abortion

My daughter has been looking forward to going to see the new Dr. Seuss movie which came out in theaters today - Horton Hears a Who. Work is crazy right now with quarter end, but I'm hoping to be able to take her to see this in a few days.

I was surprised to see an email this week from Bound4Life endorsing this movie. Curious I visited their Mercy Seat Blog to see what this was all about. As I read the post about the movie - All Whos Who Have Blood That is Red - I felt the Lord confirming what they were saying.

I strongly suggest you take the time to read this blog posting and then take time to see the movie. My daugther is six and although I haven't given her all the details as to exactly what abortion is, I have talked to her about it. I wear a Life Band, a red wristband with the word LIFE stamped on it. She asked me what is was and I explained to her that there are people who are deceived by the enemy (satan) and don't realize that babies are alive and precious to God when they are in their mommy's tummies. Sometimes people make bad decisions and these babies are killed before they are born. The band I wear is to remind me to pray for these babies and their mommies and to realize that we are ALL precious to and loved by the Lord.

She now asks to pray for these little babies and I believe her prayers are precious and beautiful to the Lord. I truly believe the Lord is calling out to this nation, to the world. One of the things He is calling out to us is how precious Life is. Changing the laws is not going to change abortion - only changed hearts are going to make a difference. I agree the Lord very well may be using this movie to start speaking to us about how precious Life really is.

A person's a person, no matter how small!

I ask that you read this posting and ask the Lord to show you His heart in this area. Please pray for this nation and ask the Lord to begin to move in all our hearts regarding this issue.

“Jesus, I plead Your Blood over my sins and the sins of my nation.
God, end abortion and send revival to America.”

Yes! Need to get the cherubs to this movie. :)
Interesting to me that the author whose real name I can't recall was prochoice. So is his widow who is none too happy right now.
I shudder to think what Dr. Suess found out when he passed away.

We watched it and it was really good. There were a few questionable moments and some cartoon violence that really didn't belong (not talking about the beezlenut oil boiling, either). You know, the first thing I thought about when I heard that a person is a person no matter how small when we watched it was a tiny baby growing in his or her mommy's tummy. Everytime the line was said, I looked directly at all three of my little boogers and repeated.

I can't recall his real name either. I am sure it is posted at Monkey Butt's school. They honored his life the whole first week of March. That is rather ironic if he was pro-choice.

I am going to visit those sites.

Dr. Seuss is classic; after seeing Horton Hears a Who i remembered how much he packs into relatively simple storylines...
