My name is Hannah Davis. I’m a wife, mother to 4 children (ages 6, 5, 3, & 5 mos), a pharmacist for CVS, and I’m currently working on my masters in Health Care Ethics and in the fall of 2011 I joined the board of Tippecanoe County Right to Life.
There were several reasons that I felt called to play a more active role in the pro-life movement. Probably the most influential in my decision was the ever decreasing protections for life I have seen in the medical field.
I feel that we are winning the battle against surgical abortion, but an insidious new enemy exists in the form of chemical abortions. As a pharmacist this directly impacts how I practice my profession and it is unacceptable for me to be forced to participate in life-ending practices. Another reason is seeing up close how the choice of life can impact a family.
My brother and his wife recently adopted a baby whose birth mother had previously chosen abortion, but because she chose life we have been blessed to have my nephew in our lives. Although there are many other reasons, the final greatest impact on my decision was knowing that I did not want abortion to be something that my children have to fight and I see that this is a fight we are winning now.
We are all busy in our lives with work, family, & church. We think we don’t have time to add anything to the to-do-list, but a small commitment on your part could make a great impact. Volunteer to work the booth at the 4-H fair, help collect signatures for the annual pro-life ad in the J & C, donate a few hours to a local crisis pregnancy center cleaning or doing yard work. What talents do you have that the pro-life movement could use to help defend the precious lives of the unborn? And don’t forget the most powerful tool we have in our arsenal against abortion, a talent that we all are able to use, prayer.
