Two notable women passed away in the past few days - no coincidences in God's world, remember: Helen Gurley Brown and Nellie Gray.
Helen Gurley Brown was the "long-time editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, the saucy sparkplug
for a sexual revolution, and the originator of the notion that a woman
could “have it all.” Controversial and charismatic, she championed
female empowerment and taught generations of women to embrace their
feminine wiles and have fun in bed (married or not)." A quote from her: “If you’re not a sex object, you’re in trouble.”
Nellie Gray was the "founder
of the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., the largest annual
pro-life event in the country", "an ubiquitous figure at the pro-life march, her slight frame
standing at the podium at stage centre, introducing the many luminaries
who addressed the crowd of several hundred thousand during the rally
before the march."
A quote from her website: "...the right to life is inalienable and endowed by our Creator. If this
basic right is weakened, all other rights are meaningless, as
disparagement of the value and dignity of human beings will then
permeate our society's mentality and the Laws of our Land—contrary to
our common good."
