Drive Safely This New Year's Eve

This post has nothing to do with abortion. But it does have to do with saving lives, so pay attention.

This is Kortney Gordon. We met when I was a college student and she working for Students for Life of America (SFLA).
This is her daughter, Sophy.
This is Jon Scharfenberger, who worked alongside Kortney at SFLA.
All three were killed by a drunk driver in October of 2011. They had been traveling on a campus visit and were on a two-lane road when they were hit head-on. The driver of the other car also died.

Being pro-life is about more than opposing abortion. And being pro-life begins at home. The first and most obvious step to take is to not kill anybody—and that means never drinking and driving!

You're entitled to have your fun tonight. But if it involves alcohol, wait until you're sober to drive home. If necessary, crash the party host's sofa for the night or call a cab. Seriously. There is no excuse.

Yes and don't eat anyone for dinner either!

Such a tragic story. I wasn't planning on doing it anyway, but I do think that the more reminders not to drink and drive, the better.

Yes, it was very tragic. I never had the opportunity to meet Kortney in person, but I did engage with her a couple of times over Facebook. An excellent reminder to stay safe.
