News from Jackson County Right to Life
Announcing Speak Life Event - with Mike Huckabee
Pro-Life Friends: We have SO MUCH to be Thankful for! And while it is hard to start thinking about 2018 (Yikes!) - please bear with me for just a moment as I have a special announcement about our Jackson County Right to Life Roe v. Wade rally. This Jan. 22nd is the 45th "Roe" anniversary and in Oregon I do not believe there is a single other more significant pro-life effort underway than the gathering of signatures to place the Initiative Petition to ban the use of taxpayer money to fund abortions on the 2018 general election ballot. To that effect, we are joining with Oregon Life United to hold a special January 22nd rally: "SPEAK LIFE! 2018" at Bethel Church in Medford. Our guest speaker will be former Governor Mike Huckabee - pastor, presidential candidate, and pro-life leader - who is coming to Oregon to help us create the energy needed to push us to our signature gathering goal!
Below is the official announcement. We want you all to attend this special evening, and - if you are led by the Spirit - please consider becoming a sponsor of the event to help defray the costs involved.
General admission tickets will be available beginning Dec. 20th.
Congrat's to Brad and Lynn Barton, of Medford, this years JCRtL Fund-Raising Raffle winners! Brad and Lynn are long time pro-lifers and supporters of the pro-life movement.

"Choice" Spoken Word Poetry
Introducing our new Pro-Life TV spot!
Pro-Lifers: One of the challenges pro-lifers have is to convey the message of the value of human life in contrast to the many, many other distractions that people hold sacred in their lives. Prime examples would be the environment, environmentalism and the animal rights movement. With the legalization of abortion, the value of human life has been legally diminished to such an extent that our society has placed non-humanity in a glorified place, above that which was created in God's image.
In an effort to bring this imbalance into perspective, Jackson County Right to Life created the attached :30 commercial. Our goal was to make a sudden and obvious contrast between what our society now seems to hold at great value as compared to what our Creator considers of the highest value. Our chapter desires that this spot be exposed to our culture in every possible venue, so we encourage you all to view the spot and then post it to your social media outlets for a larger viewership. We pray that it's thought provoking message will force people to reconsider where their values lay. May God bless this effort to uphold LIFE as His sacred work.
This spot is available to any other right to life organization, free of any charge, without the localized tag at the end, simply reply to this email and we will send you the un-tagged spot.
A BIG Jackson County Right to Life THANK YOU!!!!! to all the volunteers for the fair booth - I have heard several really neat stories about interactions the team members had at the booth - I had one boomer-age woman who told us she had barely avoided an abortion at age 19 and now had 4 children and a bunch of grandkids - many young moms were showing their children the fetal models - we gave out tons of little baby models, precious feet and hand pins, pencils, etc - thank you, volunteers, for giving your time to the cause! ALSO!!! - THANK YOU to all who have supported the chapter's raffle fundraiser this year! The winner was Dan Fair - he and his wife are long time supporters and congratulate them. May the Lord give our chapter wisdom this year that we use His resources wisely, and that we see an end to this scourge on our country.... Galatians 6:9
