Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

"My Chance"

NASHVILLE, Tennessee, April 16, 2009 ( - A moving new pro-life song is making waves after winning a leading Christian music award late last month.

"My Chance," sung by Jaime Thietten and written by Rick Shadrick and J.T. Tallent, tells the story of a young woman haunted some time after succumbing to pressure to abort.

"We couldn't wait to bring him home. Ain't it funny how you forget? We were gonna call him Chance," she sings. Later the listener learns that the woman, who is portrayed as mourning her child into her old age, was never able to conceive again - a frequent tragedy for post-abortive women.

"They promised we'd never regret, and to this day their words still hurt. We prayed each day that God would understand, but we never got a second Chance," she sings. "'He was my one, my only Chance."

The song received the "Song of the Year" award at this year's Momentum Award ceremonies in Nashville on March 28. The Momentum Awards are considered by some to be the premier award recognition program for Christian independent musicians.

Thietten and the powerful words of her song were then recognized in an April 10 National Right to Life Committee "News and Views" column. While a new name to the pro-life movement, Christian AC and inspirational artist Jaime Thietten has made a career of her extraordinary vocal talent for the past ten years.

"I'm so grateful for the award," said Thietten, referring to the success of "My Chance." "So many people keep telling me the song is about to explode. This will certainly help it on its way to being a catalyst for healing in thousands of broken lives.

"Music is a powerful force, and so often reaches where words can't," she said.

Thietten added that the group behind the song is "trying very hard to get it heard by the people who need it most," citing a statistic by the Guttmacher institute that over 70% of U.S. abortions are carried out by those who claim to be Christian.

The song has particularly deep meaning for Jaime, who says she and her husband have been trying unsuccessfully to have children for ten years.

"My hope is that women [with crisis pregnancies] will come forward and realize that there is someone who will love their baby, who will take care of their baby as their own," she said. "A lot of times, people ... are under the impression that if the baby is not wanted, then it doesn't need to come into the world, and that's not true because a baby is always wanted.

"if you are in this decision making process of what you should do - give that baby a chance. Give me a chance to be a mom, and I think that your life will have much bigger meaning, that you can be a hero to this baby."
