I want to personally thank you for sharing in this great endeavor to support Life by God’s grace and through our legal system. I am working with Phill to research action plans in targeted regions and to collaborate with local pro-life groups to make the plans a reality. Stick with us on the Journey, I’ll keep you updated.
Beginning in February we will send out a brief e-newsletter twice a month to provide you with updates on our work, action items for you, pro-life stories of interest, and links to the best pro-life material on the web. Consider it your one-stop click to what’s going on. Sign up to receive Amistad emails with the form to the right, and feel free to pass them on to your friends and colleagues.
Growing up my mom told me the story of how she almost lost me before I was born. She and my father were planning to go to the gym that day, but when she noticed some blood they went to visit the doctor instead. To be bleeding that early in a pregnancy was not a good sign, and the doctor was not encouraging. He informed my parents I probably would not make it. They shared the news with the secretary as they were leaving the doctor’s office. The lady shook her head sadly, then seemed to recover her spunk. She asked them, “Do you want to have this baby?” Oh yes, they did! “Then you can have this baby. Go home and put your feet up and rest.”
Mom and Dad skipped the gym that day.
I was six pounds, seven ounces, and my father still tells me I’m exquisite. (It does a girl’s heart good to hear that.)
That secretary fought for my life with encouragement and wise counsel. I want to do the same, and with this team and God’s direction I know we will save lives.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me!
I am at your service,
Hannah Tomlinson, Esq.
Deputy Counsel, The Amistad Journey
p.s. If you’re that secretary, thank you.
