The video below features Gianna Jessen, who I blogged about back in June in my post Survivor of Late-Term Abortion Comments on Barack Obama. (Special thanks to Mary, who brought my attention to this in her comment on an earlier blog. By the way, since I'm now sharing a sequence of blogs that feature videos, I welcome any such suggestions from readers; I read all your comments, and greatly appreciate them.)
It's now less than 6 weeks from the election. I have a few more blogs I want to do on the candidates, related to the prolife issue.
A year and a half ago, when I first heard about Barack Obama, I got excited. I really wanted to support him. An evangelical Christian told me Obama was prolife. I didn’t care that Obama was a Democrat. I wanted a pro-life, pro-environment, pro-racial equality president who took seriously our need to care for the poor and defend the needy.

The last few weeks have been interesting, to say the least. We've had about ten times our usual traffic, and I'm eager to return to the normally nonpolitical atmosphere of this blog.
The election is over. Followers of Christ, regardless of who they advocated and voted for, should now pray wholeheartedly for our new president and his administration, as Scripture instructs us in First Timothy 2:1-4:
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

I read what I think is is a fair, honest and helpful interview with our new president elect, given several years ago but reprinted in full this week for the first time by Christianity Today.
