Nick Alexander's Top Ten Pro Life Songs

Nick Alexander here... Every year at this time, special focus is given for January 22, for the national March For Life. This year, the need for support is especially vital, since we are on the cusp of a new historical administration, one which promises a quick passing of the Freedom of Choice Act. To align myself in solidarity with the Pro-Life movement, I have picked ten songs that I consider to contain very powerful sentiments towards the reality of the sanctity of life, in all forms. Please pass these songs along. Thanks!

  2. Whispers from Heaven by Donna Lee from the album Whispers from Heaven
  3. Malediction by Atomic Opera from the album Gospel Cola
  4. Rock a Bye Bye by Extreme from the album Extreme
  5. Fearfully and Wonderfully Made by Matt Redman from the album Beautiful News
  6. It's Not the Time by Kendall Payne from the album Jordan's Sister

I am also using the Fernando

I am also using the Fernando Ortega song "Psalm 139" for a worship service honoring the sanctity of life this Sunday. A good Scriptural response.

I've been trying to find the

I've been trying to find the name and sheet music for a song that was sung in our Church in the late 80s or early 90s. I don't remember the name, artist, or verses. I only remember the refrain and the melody of that refrain. The words of the refrain go something like this: I don't know what your tears are for, but Mama, please don't cry. Please don't let the pain decide that in your womb, this baby must die. 'Cause this baby should live. Oh, Mama, I want to live! Every time I try to look it up, I find another Pro Life song that just isn't the same. For some reason, I'm under the impression that this was written by somebody local to my hometown, Pittsburgh, PA, but I don't know that for sure. Does anyone else remember this song? Thanks! Amy
