Presbyterians Pro-Life ENEWS, December 2015
By Marie Bowen, Executive Director of Presbyterians Pro-Life

One Christmas gift from my Dad stands out—not as much for the gift itself, although it was great—but more for the enduring nature of its lessons that continue to teach after more than 50 years.

It was a big box in a plain brown wrapper with a tag for the three oldest children in our large family. We couldn't have been more excited! We tore into the wrapping only to find another box and another. Crumpled newspapers stuffing each box flew in all directions as we eagerly sought to find the gift inside. oh. . . .

Today is the first day of December, and we are heading into the Christmas season culminating in the celebration of the birth of Christ. Luke 2 is often read concerning the Christmas narrative. There is a darker side to this story that is often overlooked.
Life is unpredictable and Scripture teaches us that there is a time appointed time for each of us to die. None of us knows when that time will come. When disease or accident threaten life, families can be thrown into the emotion and stress of making life and death decisions without warning. As Christians who are 'pro-life' we are wise to provide directives for our families and doctors that honor God's ownership of our lives and give witness to our trust in His provision for us even beyond death. 
A recent article posted online at The Times Irish News described a tragic pregnancy. At twenty weeks gestation the mother received the news that her baby was dying of a chromosomal disorder. She described the period of waiting until the heartbeat stopped as "five weeks of torture". The author of the article clearly meant to use the mother's story as indication that Ireland needs to change it's restrictive abortion law to allow abortion in such cases.
Q. Are the pro life laws of Ireland responsible for this woman's experience with her pregnancy?
