Things I Love Thursday & Carousel Double-Hit Combo!

CarouselAgainst Nature by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, from W March 2011.

Firstly, I want to send lots of love to those affected by the earthquake & tsunami in Japan. It’s so scary what is happening in the world right now, & I don’t know what it all means, but I’m wishing lots of love & light to everyone caught up in it. We are with you & we all are praying for your safety!

Secondly, yesterday I got a little too wrapped up in what I was doing, & so Things I Love Thursday didn’t get released on time! Here it is, combined with this week’s Carousel, for your viewing pleasure!

Ask an Abortion Provider was written by someone who I am proud to be able to call my friend. It’s a game-changer… truly. I would go so far as to say that this should be essential reading for women as well as men. After I read it, I received this email from a girl, linking me to it. She said,

So recently I thought I might be pregnant. And it scared me. But interestingly, the thing that scared me the most was that I have always been pro-life, and somehow the first thing that popped into my head was “I should get an abortion”.
