Your Name is Fluke!

Sandra Fluke has recently obtained fame as a birth control activist.  Sadly, contraceptives cause abortion and the death of a precious child.  The Billings ovulation method is a no cost pro-life solution to this issue.

In contrast to Fluke’s worldview, the Creator of the Cosmos tells us that children are a blessing, not a curse: 

Children’s children are the crown of old men, And the glory of children is their father (Pr. 17:6).

Don’t you see that children are GOD’s best gift? the fruit of the womb his generous legacy?  Like a warrior’s fistful of arrows are the children of a vigorous youth.  Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children! Your enemies don’t stand a chance against you; you’ll sweep them right off your doorstep (Ps. 127:3-5, Msg.).

Now after those days his wife Elizabeth conceived; and she hid herself five months, saying,  "Thus the Lord has dealt with me, in the days when He looked on me, to take away my reproach among people." … [Zechariah said] "And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Highest; For you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways, to give knowledge of salvation to His people by the remission of their sins” (Lk. 1:24, 25, 76, 77).
Marcelo Gleiser, Professor of Physics, Astronomy & Natural Philosophy at Dartmouth College, says that your name is FLUKE:

The study of earth's past history points to a startling fact:  we are the products of a sequence of environmental accidents that greatly affected the evolution of life. If this sequence had been different, we wouldn't be here.  As a consequence, to have evolved from simple unicellular organisms to complex multicellular ones and, ultimately, to thinking beings, was a real fluke. [1]

Astronaut Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14) disagrees, “… life in the universe was not just an accident based on random processes …” [2]
A brand new film, October Baby, offers a pro-life message, “Every Life is Beautiful,” and tells the story of an abortion survivor.  Abortion shows NO LOVE to the mother or the child.  If we are here for a purpose, who is the Intelligent Designer?  Also, what is Ms. Fluke's opinion on the Age of the Earth?
