"Can anything be more promising than the miracle of life in so much destruction?" A reader's post in response to the birth of the "miracle" baby born in the Philippine typhoon rubble.
The girl was born Monday in a destroyed airport compound that was turned into a makeshift medical centre, with her bed a piece of dirty plywood resting amid dirt, broken glass, twisted metal, nails and other debris.

"Last week on my way to work my route took me by the Orange County California Planned Parenthood Office. There was one woman on her knees on the sidewalk in front of Planned parenthood praying. This was her effort to protect the unborn. It was on my mind for some time to do something on KWVE to help protect the unborn. How could we share the message of Pro-Life with our listeners. When I learned about the 1 minute daily program Life Issues® I immediately knew we had to air this program, and we are."
