Okay, folks -- I need your help!

I spent a chunk of yesterday afternoon listening to our Executive Director explain how desperately she had tried to get our funding source to cough up the money for salaries through the end of the program year, to no avail. Of course, this was followed by, "So we have to let you go."

Effective the end of the work day.

Y'all here know me for what I do here. I've done prolife work before as a professional, and would of course be very open to doing that again. Even a tiny job doing some research or writing would help me to network for something full time.

Also, any comments or letters about finding the blog helpful and informative would be nice as well. Those of you who think I totally suck are, of course, exempted from that request.

Thanks in advance for any help, good wishes, and prayers.

Oh, wow. That's incredibly sudden!

So sorry to hear that. I do, of course, find the blog incredibly helpful. I wish I could do more than just pray for you.

It was abrupt but not entirely unexpected. The funding source had been giving us the runaround with a lot of vague promises to provide the money we need, but as time went on we suspected that they were not being entirely forthright with us. So we anticipated layoffs. We just thought we'd get two weeks notice.

I've already applied for about ten jobs, and plan to start an intensive job search on Monday. Prayers are always appreciated!

Your blog is a great source of inspiration and information in the movement to save the next generation from the horror of abortion. I'm praying that this closed door will lead you to a greater opportunity to serve our children.

Thanks, Jim. I'm remember the adage, "Work as if it all depends on you, but pray as if it all depends on God."

Please be assured of my prayers.

Whenever I want to find out information about an abortionist, your blog is the first place I go.

It continues to be immensely informative, and you are doing a yeoman's service here for the pro-life movement.

Yup, your blog is extremely informative. I stop by and read your articles regularly. You have already started finding work, I'm sure you will find something soon.

SegaMon said...

"finding" should have read "looking for." Sorry. :) said...

You have educated me so much Love your blog. I pray for you to get a new job.

I don't remember how I first happened across the RealChoice blog, but I'm glad I did. Christina's focus in this blog is on maternal mortality due to abortion, although she also talks about other abortion topics as well.

Not content with a surface view of these deaths (or extreme morbidity to mother and/or baby), she digs deeper to find out more about it, searching old newspaper articles written at the time of the deaths, and/or court reports from actions taken against the criminal abortionists and their accomplices.

Her zeal in this is infectious, and makes the RealChoice blog the first one that I read every day. Her daily posts include anniversaries of abortions performed on women who died or whose fatal abortions were performed years before on that day, even if they died a few days or even years later); and she also talks about so-called "hard cases" of abortion, in which women were coerced or forced into abortions which they did not want, but were told would be for their medical good.

Through this blog, my knowledge base about abortion has been greatly widened. Both as a direct result of what has been posted here in the past several years, and as an indirect result of her posts (as I've sought deeper information myself, in response to some comments posted by abortion advocates), I have found why abortion mortality numbers -- both in America and abroad -- cannot be trusted; that most of the time that abortions are offered for medical reasons, there are life-affirming alternatives (for example, that even pregnant women with cancer can have some forms of chemotherapy; and that most women who are being pressured to abort due to fetal abnormality are better off bringing the pregnancy to term than to have an abortion -- even using the under-counted deaths from abortion).

With her long history in the pro-life movement, and her background in finding the background stories and not being content with just the surface issues, Christina Dunigan would make a wonderful addition to any pro-life group.
