31 pictures of a dog

On my way to work, I heard a ad on the radio for a new PetSmart location in my area. "For all you pet parents..." Ugh!! I knew I had to blog about that. Then, it got worse. A high school friend who just got married posted some pictures on Facebook. 31 different pictures of the dog that she and her new husband just got. Babies don't even get that much attention! It's sick!!!

Why are slobbery, shedding, smelly DOGS the new baby? And, why on earth do they now have health insurance for pets? There was a heart-throbbing-- or should I say gut-wrenching-- article in Parade Magazine in the newspaper on Sunday about the expense of heath care for pets. My goodness. It's a dog!

When I grow up, I want 31 children, not 31 pictures of a dog. Seriously, who could you be more proud of-- a child that will learn to be potty trained or a pet that you have to be popper scooper for for the next 15 years.. 3 times a day? Would you rather a child who could bring home a proud report card or a dog that will chew your couch to pieces when you're at work for the day? Would you rather have a child who can grow to genuinely love and admire you or a dog that doesn't even know you're speaking English to it?

Revival of the Rescue...

On Good Friday, a group of pro-life activists in the Philadelphia area gathered at the Warminster Planned Parenthood for a rescue. The rescue was successful in saving at least 2 lives. The clinic was shut for at least an hour. Planned Parenthood studies have shown that 80% of women who miss their first appointment for an abortion do not return. So, that means there could be many more lives saved this morning.
