1991 Women's charge rings on!
Women from one of PPL's Chapters crafted a declaration in 1991 that still rings as a proclamation of commitment for pro-life Presbyterians today. PPL calls women to accept this charge as we honor all our mothers in May.
We, women and members of Presbyterian Churches - sisters, daughters, mothers, and grandmothers - believe children are a gift from God, created in His image.

Helping others with chronic diseases, & why it matters
In a previous article, Dr. Martha Leatherman and I wrote about helping people who have terminal illnesses. Love, care, and support for those at the end of life can be a powerful witness to Jesus Christ. It can be a powerful witness against assisted suicide and euthanasia. Equally important is love, care, and support for those with chronic illnesses. Chronic illnesses include asthma, Crohn's disease, fibromyalgia, muscular dystrophy, and many others. These are long-lasting and ever present in the person who has them. Living with these conditions can lead to depression and hopelessness. The musician Kurt Cobain took his own life. It was reported that he had Crohn's disease, and was tired of living with it. We can only speculate if things would have been different if he had a Christian friend who cared for him.
