Thoughts for life Information Provided By Local MCCL Written By Carol Karels The American Medical Association supports a ban on partial- birth abortion saying it is "a procedure we will agree is not good medicine." The Physicians' Ad Hoc Coalition for Truth says "partial-birth abortion is never medically necessary to protect a mother's health or future fertility on the contrary, this procedure can pose a significant threat to both." The procedure is: the abortionist grasps the baby's leg with forceps and pulled into the birth canal. The entire body except her head is delivered. The abortionist forces a scissors into the base of the baby's skull and inserts a suction catheter into the opening, the brain is suctioned out and the baby is delivered dead.

Therefore be imitators children, and live in love as Christ loved us and gave us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Ephesians Unkind deeds and words distress me. It seems to me too precious to waste any part of it on unkindness. I Solomon who wrote the following hundreds of who is kind benefits himself, but a cruel (Proverbs 11:17) My philosophy of life is expressed in the unknown author: Through this toilsome world, alas! Once and only once I pass; If a kindness I may show, If a good deed I may do To a suffering fellow man, Let me do it, for it is plain I shall not pass this way again.

We hope our work will give citizens a sense of the historical connection between their community and its parks; we also hope the report will prove useful as the community considers the future of its park system. We wish to take this opportunity to thank those who have been particularly instrumental t, .:  success of our research. First,- ,, exceedingly grateful to the Public ...........

Funeral Planning Mystery To Most l"lanning a funeral, according to recent industry research, is not as mysterious as most people think, says Pare Jacobsen, pre-need counselor of the Larson Funeral Homes.

"I consider that good news, because the more people know about our profession, Pare the more prepared they'll be in planning a meaningful and satisfying funeral," she adds. As consumers become more aware of funeral also more curious about the arrangement process, vices, as well as cost the study shows. "The same research says consumers prefer to tion from a funeral service professional they know," "We're always happy to comply, either during funeral advance. As people become more knowledgeable, They to prearrange funerals, making important without the emotion of death." In fact, one third of all funerals are prearranged. interest means people find comfort and value in says. "Research supports that; consumers say funerals important in the future as today." The Consumers and Funerals Study also revealed * Are highly satisfied with the funeral arrangement * Cite remembering and honoring the deceased as purpose of the funeral; * Believe funerals are a means for family and good-bye and should celebrate life, not dwell on "Consumers can feel comfortable making Larson Funeral Homes," according to Jacobsen.
