Pink or Blue?
to listen to the song "Pink or Blue")
In 1996, a woman from Memphis named
Sherry Jones wrote a poem called "Pink or Blue?":
My child I'm only seventeen/ I don't know what to do/ I hope
that you will understand/ Why I can't keep you/ You see I'm not
married/ And you were a mistake/ You were conceived in the back of a
car/ While on a blind date/ Your father's not much older/ And we are
both in school/ I don't feel that I should pay/ Because we both were
fools/ My child I don't have a job/ And neither does your dad/ But just
thinking about abortion/ Really makes me sad/ They say you're not
really a child/ That you are just a mass/ That I should abort you/ And
all these feelings will pass/ My child tell me are you real?/ Child
tell me what to do/ If I decide to keep you/ Would you wear pink or
blue?/ Would I get to hold you?/ Would I see your smiling face?/ Child
what would you do/ If you were in my place?
Mom I'm not in your place/ I can't
tell you what to do/ But you've asked me some questions/ So I will
answer you/ Yes Mom I'm really real/ Though I did not ask to be/ Now it
seems the question is/ What will do with me?/ I pray I'll get to know
you/ And you'll hold me in your arms/ You'll tuck me into bed at night/
And protect me from harm/ We'll play ring around the roses/ And hide
and seek too/ Mom don't you understand?/ I'm just as real as you/ I'm
all soft and cuddly/ And I have rosy cheeks/ But I can't tell you what
to do/ It's God's wisdom you must seek/ You see Mom I'm not a mass/ No
matter what they think/ And just in case you're wondering/ I'd be
In 1997, Sherry met a musician named David
Benrexi in Nashville and shared this poem. He put it to music and
forgot about it. In September of 2001, the Creator of the universe,
spoke to David's heart telling him to record "Pink or Blue?". (Click HERE to listen to "Pink or Blue"). In
June of 2002, seven musicians came together in Rochester, PA, to
fulfill that command. They recorded ten songs for the purpose of
sharing God's limitless love with young, pregnant women.
The collection of songs, "Pink or Blue?", reveals poignantly that unborn
life is a blessing, not a curse, that God loves each child, even before
it is born, and that He has a purpose for creating that life. God loves
every woman who is struggling with the reality of being pregnant. He
wants each one to know that He will be there for her every step of the
CD's are being distributed free of charge by the thousands at crisis
pregnancy centers around the country. All this is made possible by the
concern and generosity of God's people. A booklet, "Pink or Blue?--You
Can Make a Difference," explains how you can partner with us in your
area to minister life to these young women and their babies. For more

secular world has done an excellent job of convincing women that the
words "choice" and "women?s rights" apply to the fate of the unborn
child. As children of God we need to counter this message with the
truth of the gospel. But the message must be presented in a format that
effectively reaches an audience hardened by worldly thinking. Enter
David Benrexi. Several months ago, David contacted me to share his
vision for a music ministry targeting abortion-minded women. As the
director of a Christian ministry and pregnancy care center, I welcomed
his offer of a free case of CDs for distribution to our clients. The
majority are single women in the 19-24 age range. Many face decisions
regarding unplanned pregnancies without a saving relationship with our
Lord Jesus Christ or knowledge of the gospel. Through music, David
gently encourages the listener to think about the sacredness of life,
while offering a message of love and hope to those who have made
choices contrary to God?s will. David is using his musical gifts to
glorify God. In my conversations with him, his love for Jesus Christ
and commitment to this ministry are evident. He has committed his time
and resources to this project, supplying "Pink or Blue?? CDs to
pregnancy centers around the nation. I encourage you to support David
Benrexi in working to save lives and families in this country to the
glory of God.

of music's penetrating influence on the human heart, I look
forward to the fruitful impact Zephaniah 3:17 Ministries? "Pink or
Blue?" CD project will have on confused teen mothers who are struggling
with an unplanned pregnancy. Indeed "Pink or Blue?" is a valuable tool
for America's crisis pregnancy centers to share free of charge with
their clients. For many unwed teens, "Pink or Blue?" will bring
immediate understanding, hope for the future, and abiding devotion to
their once unwanted child. As a result, children will escape the
abortionist's cold, steel instruments, and God will be glorified.

have listened to "Pink or Blue?" and am impressed. This can be a very
useful new pro-life tool, especially for an unmarried young woman.

Thank you for the work you are
doing on behalf of pregnant young women and their pre-born children. We
will pray for God's continued blessings on this ministry. It is also
our prayer that the Holy Spirit will use this music to touch hearts and
change lives. We will make every attempt to distribute the CDs to all
who are willing to listen to it. Thank you again for your work.

| Is Abortion Murder?
The story is told of a mother who stepped into a doctor's office while
carrying a one year old baby. Seating herself near the physician, she
said, "Doctor, I want you to help me out of trouble. My baby is only
one year old, and I have conceived again. Surely, you understand what I
do not want to have children so close together."
"What do you expect me to do?" asked the physician.
"Oh, anything to get rid of it for me," she replied.
After thinking for a moment, the doctor said, "I can suggest a better
method of helping you. If you object to having two children so near
together, the best way would be to kill the one on your lap, and it
makes no difference to me which one I kill. Besides, it might be
dangerous for you if I undertook to kill the younger one."
As the doctor finished speaking, he reached for a knife and asked the
mother to lay the baby out on her lap and turn her head. At that
moment, the woman almost fainted away, before rising from her chair and
A few words of explanation from the doctor soon convinced the young
mother that his offer to kill her one year old was no worse than her
request for the destruction of her unborn child. Either way, it would
be equivalent to murder. The only difference would be in the age of the
child. ***by Royce Dunn, President "Please Let me Live" (Life-chain
