Planned Parenthood closed a total of 38 clinics in 2009, let's work on doubling that number in 2010!


A revocation of government funding, thanks in part to government budget cuts, is responsible for closing some centers. Planned Parenthood relies heavily on taxpayer funding of its operations. Taxpayer funding provides 33.7 percent of its total income. The year 2009 saw some significant strides in cutting state funding to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood in Indiana, for example, reported that most of the six clinics it closed there were closed because of the loss of funds from the state.

I also attribute this small victory over abortion to the fact that more pro-life advocates appeared outside abortion centers this past year -- helping women find positive alternatives. Sidewalk counselors are a vital part of the pro-life movement. Not only do they help pregnant women make positive choices and provide life resources but they simply show compassion and respect for life in such a way that literally save lives. Not just the lives of the unborn, but of women who otherwise would be bound to a lifetime of regret and hurt. In 2009, sidewalk counselors that were part of the 40 Days For Life Campaign were there with loving open arms when former Planned Parenthood director, Abby Johnson, needed support in her decision to quit the business after seeing a baby die right before her eyes during an ultrasound guided abortion. So you see, those Love Warriors who are out there on the frontline battling for Life in front of these abortion clinics are so valuable and need our prayers and support everyday!

In the upcoming years ahead we need to be more vocal, more accessible and more in the public eye if we're going to see a real change. The more people who know the truth, the less innocent lives will be taken and the less women will be hurt! I encourage everyone to get out there and make a difference somehow. Whether it be volunteering your time or resources to crisis pregnancy centers or sharing facts and hope to others through conversation or on your own social outlets like facebook, twitter, myspace or blogs. And of course voting for leaders and laws that support Life! If we as a nation unite on this issue we WILL see an end to abortion in our lifetime! I believe we can.

Thank you for all of your efforts during the 2009 year! Keep up the hard work in 2010 and keep the faith! God bless each and every one of you in the upcoming year!
I heart Huckabee! This man has taken an admirable stand against abortion and anyone who makes a conscious effort to end abortion earns respect in my eyes! Take a moment to listen to this powerful speech by Mike Huckabee:


TRUTH: Planned Parenthood targets minorities with their racist agenda....



Planned Parenthood wants the public to embrace the idea that their cause is about choice and about women's rights when in actuality, they have a hidden agenda that's foundation was built upon racism and hate. Don't be fooled by their slogans, they don't care about women, families or anyone...they care about money in their pocket and eliminating what founder Margaret Sanger quoted as "the undesirables". They've done a pretty good job so far of keeping the public in the dark, but together, we can expose the lies and reveal the truth about the abortion industry.

Pass on the facts....
The pro-abortion community preaches about how "safe" abortions are since becoming legal in 1973. As recent as September of 2009, Planned Parenthood abortion doctors have been quoted saying that "abortions are safer than having a baby". This is a bold face lie and here is an article that highlights studies proving that very statement to be FALSE. Follow this link to read the full article:


Legal abortions are NOT "safe"...in fact, 1 out of 5 women who have an abortion require a "surgical intervention" because they failed to abort and one third of women have adverse effects which include severe bleeding, half of which resulted in hospitalization. The death rate of women who have an abortion is THREE TIMES HIGHER than that of women who carry their baby to term. These are just some of the physical consequences of abortion. Women who choose abortion are also 2-5 times more likely to suffer from depression or have some sort of drug or substance abuse than women who chose life for their baby.

These are facts straight from published studies by respected gynecologists and physicians. The numbers don't lie. Abortion hurts women...mentally, physically and emotionally. Help bring an end to the hurt and injustice...pass on the facts. Share the truth with others through conversation or by re-posting these facts and other life-affirming information on your websites or blogs. By doing so, you will help in saving lives.

Check out this video and learn from Stephanie Gray of The Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform as she gives a rational and scientifically supported answer to the question about when human life begins:


Content Warning: There are some graphic pictures depicting the violence of abortionagainst humans in the background of this scene although they are not the focus of the video.






Science proves that life begins at fertilization. This video answers the question of why life should be protected from the moment of conception and emphasizes that the right to life is not given, it is an inalienable right.

The worth of an individual is not ascribed by law...it's endowed by the Creator. Life is a gift, not a reward. So the real question is...how are you going to respond to the gift of life? Will you lovingly accept it OR will you ungratefully and selfishly reject the gift by terminating it?


"Gratitude for the gift of our life is our response to God's abundant love" -Henri Nouwen


Read this CNN Story of an Iowa mother who murdered her child with the defense that "she believed she was trying to save her sons from a life of suffering" when she cut their throats and her own. Her insanity plea was rejected, she was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.

The reason I have chosen to blog about this story is because I have heard that defense or more accurately - EXCUSE - that abortion is saving the child from a lifetime of suffering or a life without a "proper" upbringing. I have even heard those who are pro-abortion say "if the child is going to grow up in a bad environment or have a bad home life then we should put it out of its misery". This is an accepted theory in the pro-abortion community so my question is, If this defense doesn't hold up in court then why is it legal to kill an unborn child using the same flawed logic? If we wouldn't kill a child when it is born because of their "lack of future" then why on earth would we kill a child in the womb for the very same reason?

There are so many holes in the pro-abortion logic. All of which are filled with excuses. I have yet to hear a strong defense for abortion that has not been broken down to be nothing more than an excuse. Truth is...abortion's design and purpose is to not only eliminate the child, but eliminate what is viewed as a challenge too difficult to overcome. Every excuse I have heard from women is as a result of one reason and one reason only... the woman doesn't want to face responsibility or difficulty and a child simply gets in the way of what they want for their own life. No matter what the excuse "I can't take care of this baby" "I don't want this baby" "I can't give this baby a future" ....ALL point to one conclusion that the woman has come to in her mind "This is too hard, I can't deal with this" Because if this were not true and women really were thinking beyond themselves and thought about what was best for both she and the baby, not just what was best for her, then I believe women would approach the situation MUCH differently...they approach the situation as a crisis and instead of eliminating the crisis they choose to eliminate the child.
A much healthier and rewarding approach would be: "It's going to be hard but I can find a way to take care of this baby" "I didn't plan this baby, but I can give this baby to a family who does want a child and can give it a future".

I don't understand why women don't see adoption as an option more. With adoption the child has a chance to live a life with a family who will love them and take care of them. Abortion is permanent, final, there are no possibilities or hope for the child through abortion. It's as permanent a decision as it would be if you chose life. Once that life has been taken away, it is gone. But adoption gives that child a chance, no matter how small or great that chance may be, it is a chance to live out their purpose...hope for a future. And with hope...anything is possible.

I think the root of the problem here is that women feel hopeless and the hopelessness is what drives them to have an abortion. If a woman has an abortion because she feels she has no other options then it is not a choice, it is a last resort and we, as a society, have greatly failed her. I believe in my heart that more women would choose life if we gave them the hope they need. If we gave them the necessary resources they need to succeed as a mother and a woman. We as a society need to stop teaching that having a child is a burden or a task too great for the average woman to handle. Yes, it is a big job and yes it will have it's difficult moments but ask any mother you meet and they will tell you that the good heavily outweigh the bad! 97% of women who have chosen abortion regret that decision and would not recommend abortion to others. Out of the mothers who chose life for their babies....100% are satisfied with their choice. The numbers don't lie. So stop believing the lies that you can't or shouldn't and start believing you CAN and you WILL succeed if you simply Choose Life. You are not alone.

Life is a gift, not a reward.





For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

This song is from Ryan Scott who's biological mother was raped, yet despite her unspeakable pain, chose Life through adoption. Ryan explains, "This song simply says thank you for giving me a chance to love and be loved." May this song soften your hearts so that you can realize that life, no matter who you are, is a gift and not a reward.





To learn more about Ryan and his testimony go to: www.theradiancefoundation.org

The Radiance Foundation is an organization that was co-created by Ryan himself through which he and others use various forms of media, speaking engagements, multi-media presentations and community outreach efforts to illuminate the intrinsic value each person possesses. They educate audiences about societal issues and how they affect the understanding of God-given purpose. They also motivate people to positively affect the world around them. It is a beautiful vision with inspiring core values. Take the time to check out this site.

Planned Parenthood has released a statement in regards to the recent undercover video documented by the Live Action Team that exposes Planned Parenthood workers and physicians giving clients medically inaccurate and misleading information about abortion. Local news coverage of the story can be found: HERE.

Planned Parenthood claims that they "always provide legal and accurate information to patients from our medical personnel". Oh really? Well here are the TRUE FACTS about abortion provided by respected and highly educated physicians and medical journals:

Physiciansforlife.org is a website that contains studies and statistical facts from trusted and respected medical journals. Now it's up to you to choose who you believe...the majority of the medical community or Planned Parenthood?

Expose the lies....pass on the facts. Share what you now know with friends, family, everyone you know either in conversation or by posting the information on your own websites like facebook, myspace, twitter or your own blog. We need to hold them accountable and to do that we must pull back the curtain and reveal their lies to everyone. Help spread the truth.

QUICK FACT: It is a felony to "disturb" a bald eagle egg but DESTROYING a human embryo is not only legal but it is encouraged. Bald eagles and even their eggs are protected under a law entitled the Bald Eagle and Golden Eagle Protection Act. How is it that we value other species above our own? It's senseless to me and so frustratingly disappointing. We are supposed to be the most advanced and intelligent species on the planet but we can't seem to understand that we are killing off our future generations. 1/3 of our youth never made it out of the womb. All of whom have died in the name of "choice".

I have heard every pro-abortion argument out there and I have not heard one single argument in support of abortion that was not some sort of excuse. And in my experience if you have to make an excuse for something...it probably isn't something you should be doing. Stop making excuses and start respecting life! I truly believe that the heart of the issue is a gross lack of respect for life. If we don't value life at it's beginning and it's most vulnerable then how can we expect there to be respect for life in later stages? Rape, murder, abuse all of these things are a direct result of a disrespect for another human being's life. But if we're not teaching to respect life at it's core then why are we then appalled by the disrespect for it in those situations? We have not set a standard for life...and we NEED to. ALL LIFE IS VALUABLE and should be respected and defended. I think we would see a huge decrease in those kinds of harmful crimes against humanity if we protect life from the very start of its existence...which is conception. Scientists agree that life begins at conception and we have overwhelming evidence for this yet we still choose to believe what we want so that we can do whatever want.

Truth is....elective abortions were created so that women could elude responsibility. With our choices come responsibility and if we make such choices then we must be prepared to own up to those responsibilities...not make excuses for them and run from those responsibilities.

How can we expect women to make "informed decisions" when they are being MISINFORMED?! This is a clear example of how the abortion industry exploits women and lies to them just to make a sale. Because that is what they do...they SELL abortions. Abortions are not medical procedures that women NEED it is something that women are told that they need and should have! It doesn't cure any diseases or save any lives, in fact it does quite the opposite. It creates more problems and destroys lives in the process! Just a few of the risks and consequences or complications are increased depression with a higher statistic of suicide along with other emotional results and physical complications can range anywhere from infertility to death. It is NOT safe no matter what this abortionist says...childbirth is natural, ripping a child from the womb is not natural and it is a false statement that it is safer than giving birth! It is a tragic reality that women are not exposed to the truth but instead are fed lies by abortion supports. This only fuels my passion to work harder and find more ways and better ways of helping women make life saving choices not life ending ones.

Rise up with me and let's do our best to bring an end to abortion!
The Senate voted 54-45 to defeat the Nelson amendment that would have removed the massive abortion funding from the Senate government-run health care bill. With the defeat, pro-life advocates will unite behind a concerted effort to defeat the entire health care bill.

The legislation currently allows abortion funding under both the public option and the affordability credits to purchase health care insurance. If this plan goes through it will be the largest expansion of abortion on demand since Roe v. Wade and so many more women and children will be harmed by this monstrous atrocity. Our country needs our prayers. We simply cannot allow this kind of injustice to continue to happen across our nation. It is mind-numbing that we could be FORCED to have our hard earned money go towards something we are morally and religiously against!

Abortion does not cure any diseases or save lives for that matter...it in fact TAKES LIVES and for it to be considered health care then we should also include things like breast implants or liposuction because those too are "medical procedures" that do not cure disease or save lives. Should we also be forced to pay for someone else's boob job? They are better termed as "vanity procedures". Vanity is nothing more than excessive pride and abortion on demand is often nothing more than that...a selfish pride that allows you to choose yourself over everyone else regardless of the harm it may cause. We as a nation have failed to hold ourselves accountable for our behaviors, our lifestyles and our choices. With choice comes responsibility and accountability but abortion is a scapegoat for those things. We can still indulge in a reckless lifestyle because we have the "option" of eliminating the responsibilities and consequences of our careless choices. Abortion is a human devised way of escaping responsibility. Instead of making good choices to begin with we allow ourselves to make the poor ones with the safety net of just "taking care of it" later. "Taking care of it" is not an appropriate term for what truly occurs in that situation...it is the lack of care that enables a decision like that to be made.

The saddest part is that the abortion industry and their supporters have made this idea sound so good and so harmless and so empowering that there are those who truly believe it to be so. Young women believe the lies and then suffer from post abortion heartache for years often times for the rest of their lives. That is heartbreaking to me. Yet I do believe that there are many women who sincerely do not know the severity, the consequences and reality of abortion because they have never been told the truth. That is why I have chosen to speak louder and to do my best to make sure the truth is spread. Those women deserve to know the truth. They deserve better than abortion and so do their unborn children.

I pray that this bill does not go through for the sake of our future generations. May God have mercy on us if it does, in fact, go through.
Congressman Bart Stupak addressed the new ad paid for by NARAL Pro-Choice America that is circulating the latest misinformation about the Stupak amendment. Read this article from Michigan News that uncovers the lies being generated by supporters in the Abortion Industry.Here is the the NARAL ad that falsely attacks Stupak and other Pro-Life leaders and the same ad that is talked about in the above article.



NARAL is not the only one producing false ads about the issue of abortion in healthcare. Their fellow abortion supporters at Planned Parenthood have made a public ad of their own that makes a series of false claims. Here is that ad with all of its misleading information....


If they are lying about something that has evidence and facts that can be proven against them then what is stopping them from lying about other abortion related issues? Let's see through the lies America. Pro-Abortion organizations like NARAL and Planned Parenthood are willing to lie in order to help propel their ideals and agendas and in turn lining their pockets with more money. This isn't the first time they have produced false ads and information. Every time NARAL or Planned Parenthood comments on issues like this, the public should be reminded of their questionable practices and roots.



New York City is the US abortion capitol with a shocking 756 abortions per 1,000 live births. See abortion data for every state here:
Abortion Data

When you put a face and a name to each of those numbers it should make your heart break because these are not just numbers, they are human beings. Little babies who are being slaughtered each day in our country for nothing more than the sake of "choice".

Women have clung to the idea that abortion is "empowering" but shouldn't it be more empowering to give life rather than to take life away? There are some women who can never have children for various reasons, men cannot have them at all, so shouldn't birth be viewed as a privilege, better yet, a gift? We have taken such an ungrateful attitude toward pregnancy and birth...it is miraculous and yes, should be empowering, yet thousands of women everyday choose to reject that power, that gift and disrespect life itself by choosing to abort. If we could look beyond ourselves we would see that abortion is a very selfish act and that giving life to a baby is the closest thing to a superhero power we have. Let's choose to be superheroes! Aren't they the ones that we admire, the ones who are dedicated to saving lives? Just a thought.



If you have chosen abortion I am not saying you are a villain. I understand there are circumstances surrounding your decision that drove you to make that choice and I do not begin to judge you for that. Regardless of our past decisions God's mercy is made new to us everyday. Lying is as equal to murder in God's eyes...therefor we are all guilty of some sort of wrongdoing...there is no better or worse to God which means I am no better than you and you are no better than me...we are equal in the eyes of God. He loves us both equally as much. He extends His forgiveness and mercy on all of us regardless of our shortcomings and despite the mistakes we will make even in the future. In knowing that, we have a hope and a future through Christ. With his forgiveness and love we can begin living the life He intended for us, a life that will honour Him in all that we say and do. He selflessly gave His life so that we may live, we should follow in his footsteps and selflessly live our lives for Him. Choosing life is a step in that direction.



This is the "advice" Planned Parenthood is teaching young adults?! Encouraging promiscuity that leads to a higher risk of pregnancy and STDs, claiming that sexual diseases are common and giving a false idea that STDs are often treatable and appear less harmful than they truly are, while advocating that sex is no big deal.

What about teaching respect and self-control in relationships and accurately addressing the risks and consequences related to sexual activity? Shouldn't we be advocating healthy lifestyles, monogamy and providing factual information to young adults?

The first point I would like to make in response to this video is that we should NEVER encourage promiscuity or "one night stands". Whether you support abstinence or "safe sex" you should agree that promoting careless choices regarding sex and multiple partners puts young adults at a much higher risk for STDs and pregnancy. If we truly cared about these young people we would not want to put them in harms way and by interpreting sex to have no boundaries is definitely creating a segway for potential harm.

Second, as a self-proclaimed "trained obstetrician gynecologist" this woman should be giving medically ACCURATE information. Her statement that "everyone gets HPV" is FALSE! Maybe in her circle of promiscuous and/or infected counterparts this is true. But making a statement that claims that this STD is common enough to infect all of us and with a tone that indicates her apathy towards the disease is frightening. If her goal was to educate, she has greatly failed and in fact has done quite the opposite with her statements. The young people listening to this woman now have much higher health risks due to the fact that they were greatly misinformed. They not only have been given false information, but life-threatening false information. Another disturbing factor is that this woman is the vice president of medical affairs for planned parenthood....she is supposedly one of the top educated members. That's scary.

Lastly, the closing statement of this video is tragic. This is her "best advice"?? To tell young people "do whatever you want and deal with the consequences later". What kind of advice is that? Wouldn't it be better to help them to make healthy choices to start with so that they don't have to deal with difficult and life altering consequences later?

For any young adults reading this, please understand that all of your choices affect your future. The choices you make today will impact the rest of your life. Those of us who promote abstinence, monogamy and respect for yourself and for relationships are not here to discourage you from living a full and happy life, we are speaking from experience and WANT you to have a fulfilling life. We know that the kind of successful life that one day will involve sex will be healthier and happier because you chose respect and self control over temporary pleasures and empty purpose. People like those in support of Planned Parenthood and their ideals fail to mention that sex is not just a physical action, but it is a priceless privilege with a purpose much great then sexual gratification. We have been given this personal form of physical love designed to show that one special person God has gifted to us that they are special and loved above all others in our hearts. If we spread our love around then that gift loses it's value and meaning. Sex is something to be respected and treasured and not meant for selfish intentions or a lack in depth and meaning. When you experience sex the way it was intended for us, which is within marriage, you will understand a higher level of respect and love and the results of your decision will be more than gratifying!

Just one more thing to be thankful for....



Another abortion clinic's doors closed. Praise the Lord! Prayer works.
Baltimore passed a law that requires life-affirming pregnancy centers to post disclaimers noting that they do not provide abortion services with the argument that they want women to be "fully informed" of all their choices. You can read the full article here: News Busters

If they were really concerned about women making informed choices then they would require abortion mills to post disclaimers that they, in fact, provide abortion services. Their argument is that there is a threat to abortion facilities and workers by revealing this information. Have we forgotten that pro-life advocates have also died for the sake of the cause? There is a skewed view here. I do not support the individuals who threaten and harm abortion workers or who harass people who go to these clinics for abortions. That is an extreme version and view of the pro-life movement and the pro-life people. The majority of us are peaceful people with a burden on our hearts to save lives. And equally, I realize that not every pro-abortion advocate is a crazy, threat-spewing killer. The fact is that there are young women entering these facilities who are scared, hopeless and the majority are ignorant to the facts surrounding these issues.

I wholeheartedly believe in giving women all of their options so that they can make an informed decision. Which I believe most, if not all, life-affirming resources do. Sure, they do not actually perform abortions or distribute birth control...but I know for a fact that they explain the abortion procedure and the risks(with fact, not scare tactics) and also tell the abortion-minded woman that they do not offer abortions or contraceptives and do not give referrals to clinics who do offer those services. Why? Because why would we tell them about a service we do not advocate for, only to lead them to the very doors where those services are offered? That would be like saying "We're against prostitution, but here is a list of local brothels". We would be an accomplice in their abortion decision and that alone violates our conscience. Many ask "but why not offer contraceptives"? My answer is this...there is no contraceptive that is 100% safe and accurate, except abstinence. And by offering alternatives like birth control and condoms, you are telling that young person that their choice will result in merely physical consequences which just is not true. Birth control and condoms are false hope and our foundation is built on true hope. Hope for a future. By offering contraceptives you are telling that young person that it is OK to be promiscuous, that it is OK to put yourself at higher risk for pregnancy and STDs and that sex is purely a physical action. I think that if we really have the best intentions for these young people we would start at the heart, and teach them that sex is a valuable and personal possession that requires respect and is a meaningful expression of affection that is meant to be reserved for marriage. When you instill in them a sense of respect for themselves and in their relationships, it will be reflected in their everyday choices.

I believe pregnancy resource centers DO give women all the information they need in making life changing decisions...the other side's view just doesn't like the information we give because it's the truth and much of it exposes the very lies they are telling women. What it all comes down to after reading this article about this new law is that they are so quick to fight for choices and laws that support their ideals, but are not willing to have those same laws be enforced on them. That is what we call hypocrisy.



I encourage you to watch this video of a Vietnamese man who has dedicated his life and his home as a refuge for over 50 abandoned babies who otherwise would have been aborted.



I admire his compassion and his faith. He took in these children who were inevitably sentenced to death by abortion and gave them a chance at life and also works to provide for them not only food and shelter but raises them with love, to be good people for society. What a blessing he is to those children.

Now, I'm not saying we should all open up our homes and start a day care for all the babies who are at risk of being aborted by their mothers, but there are things we can do and ways we can help these women and children. Life affirming pregnancy centers have laid such great groundwork in this area and always need the help of volunteers in various areas of the pro-life work. I encourage you to contact your local pregnancy center and see what you can do to help create a positive future for these women and children who otherwise have little or no hope and/or resources. There are several national and international organizations you can get involved with too and those links are located on the right side bar of this blog.

This is a story of one man making a difference in the lives of many. We all can make a positive impact too. It starts with one....

Abortion takes away a lifetime of choices....




The largest argument in defense of abortion is that "it is a woman's choice". My response to this argument is that many women don't even know what that choice is. They don't know what abortion is and what it does not only to the unborn child, but to themselves. They don't understand the risks involved and the lifelong consequences of exercising their "choice".

By giving the woman a choice to take the life of her child we are taking away the rights of that child and not giving them a chance to live and to make a lifetime of choices that could positively impact all of us. Any of the children who have been aborted could have held the cure to cancer or have found the answer to other global issues. But all that potential is gone. Before we make any decision in our lives we need to think about the possibility that our actions not only effect us but they can impact everyone around us. So often people argue that a woman's choice is hers alone and doesn't effect anyone but herself. But we all know that is false. The baby is directly effected, families are indirectly effected and we as a nation are effected. The potential life changing impacts that child may have bestowed upon us is just one of the many examples of how abortion effects us all. And I truly believe that a lack of respect for life on this level is a leading reason for the lack of respect as a whole in our society. If we can't respect life at it's core, at it's beginning, then how can we expect respect for life in later stages. Rape, murder, sexual abuse, etc. are all examples of a lack of respect for human life. We haven't established that respect for life at it's start (in the womb) and that lack of respect is seen throughout society through various crimes like these. So you see, again, how abortion truly does effect us all.

How can one person's right to choose take away another person's right to live? Shouldn't the right to life supersede all other rights? Without life no other rights would matter or exist. So how does a woman's right to choose, override a child's right to live?

Before making a "choice"....
  • know all of your options.
  • know all of the risks.
  • know that you are not alone.



"Every woman experiencing an unplanned pregnancy deserves to experience unplanned joy..."

Former Planned Parenthood Director, Abby Johnson, left the organization after witnessing a 13 week old baby fighting for its life during an ultrasound guided abortion. This is a video of an interview Abby did on a popular Fox News show where she describes her experience and explains why she is now Pro-Life.




Pray that other abortion providers have the same change of heart that this woman had! If there is no one left willing to perform abortions there will be no more abortions being done and the killing of innocent unborn babies will end, the suffering from so many women who's lives are effected by abortion will diminish. Pray that this hope for a world without abortion becomes the reality. If everyone knew, truly knew what abortion really was and what it stood for and the effects and consequences I believe we would see an end to it. We have to help others know and understand. We need to educate our world and help in the effort to end such a devastating act that destroys so many lives. We are all called to help in different ways. Use your talents in a way that will bring healing to our land. Local Pregnancy centers and other Life Affirming Organizations can help you to discover just what you can do to help! There are several links on the right side of this blog to many of those groups I'm speaking of! Please take the time to check them out!


Last night the U.S. House of Representatives approved the Stupak-Pitts Amendment to H.R. 3962, by a vote of 240 to 194, with 64 Democratic members voting in favor of the amendment to ban federal funding of abortion in the health care bill.

This is a great victory for the pro-life movement and for all who so diligently contacted their Representatives leading up to the vote. With the adoption of the Stupak-Pitts Amendment, the House of Representatives made a principled and sound decision to continue our nation’s longstanding policy of protecting taxpayers’ conscience in the area of abortion funding.

In the coming weeks, we will remain vigilant and shift our efforts to the Senate to ensure that these same pro-life protections are included in the Senate bill. We fully expect that pro-abortion leaders will still try to find ways to sneak abortion funding into health care.

For now though, let's celebrate this great victory for unborn children and women!! Thank you for all of your efforts in defense of Life. Together we can save countless unborn lives as well as women and families from abortion!





For the last couple of weeks pro-life groups have been lobbying Members of Congress to vote on the only amendment that would explicitly exclude funding for abortion in the proposed health care bill. Well, TODAY there will be a vote on the Stupak-Pitts Amendment!

It all comes down to this vote tonight.

I need you to call your state representative immediately. Tell your Representative to vote YES on the Stupak-Pitts Amendment.

This vote is going to be VERY close, so please call right now. You can find your Rep.'s phone number here: Member Information. Representatives will be keeping track today of how many calls they receive from back home and if they are undecided on how to vote, how many folks call them will make a difference.

Here are your talking points:

  • The Pitts-Stupak Amendment is the only amendment that provides clear language that prohibits federal funding of elective abortions and plans that cover elective abortions.
  • Vote YES on the Pitts-Stupak Amendment.
Be a part of this important moment for the pro-life movement: Please call now. The debate is slated to start at 9am ET! Call now, and then get as many of your friends to call as possible.

Stay hopeful and continue to pray – Speaker Pelosi and the abortion lobby do not yet have the votes they need to pass this health care legislation. Wavering Congressmen need to hear from us. So thank you for standing strong and for showing Congress that Real Health Care Respects Life!

"Children are the hands by which we take hold of Heaven."

Meet The Abortion Providers


They help provide a clearer view of what exactly goes on in abortion mills across our nation, like Planned Parenthood. The lies, the coercion, the greed, and the reality of the abortion industry is described in detail by these testimonies of real people who worked behind the scenes at these abortuaries. All have since converted and now have a pro-life perspective because of their experiences. It is strong testimonies by people like these that truly expose the chilling reality of abortion and what it does to not only children, but to women and men. With all of the damaging evidence against abortion it leaves me to ask the question "How is abortion still so prevalent?" The only answer I can come up with for that question is that there are still so many people who do not know the truth. They are still being spoon fed lies. For this very reason I feel it is the responsibility and duty of those of us who know the truth to share it, to speak it, to spread it to those who may not know. The more who know the truth, the less pain and suffering there will be in the world because there will be fewer abortions...people will know better.

I encourage everyone to do your own researching, and do your own part in sharing the truth. Our nation needs us so badly. Shine a light on the darkness that is abortion. You could directly or indirectly be a part of saving lives! For those who are already involved in what I like to call the "Pro-Hope" movement...thank you and God bless you! You are making a huge difference in this world! I believe we can see an end to abortion in our lifetime. With the help of each other and with the almighty power of God...we will have victory over death!
Before you can make and informed decision or conclusion about abortion you should understand exactly what abortion is and what abortion does. Listen to a real doctor give the facts about abortion and also the risks by going to this website: Abortion Procedure & Risks. In this video, Dr. Joseph De Cook states:
"It is healthier for the woman to carry the child than it is to abort."

For more facts about the abortion procedure and to see medical illustrations of the different types of abortion techniques go to: Abort73.com. This will give you a visual understanding without the use of graphic images. Some feel that the graphic images of abortion and aborted babies is "vile", "disgusting" and "too much to handle" and I will agree with them so I will not show any of those images here. I do believe that there are some of us who NEED to see those images before we truly come to grips with what abortion is. But not all of us are ready. I was one of those people who needed to see the raw reality...it was only then did I truly understand and realize the truth that abortion savagely, callously and inhumanely kills a human life. Until I saw the truth exposed in those raw images I just thought "Abortion is bad." now I know, abortion is murder. Until you feel the shock of that reality, you will not feel the heartache for the unborn and for the post-abortive women, you will not have the passion to protect life at all stages and you will not understand the violation that occurs from the perilous act of abortion. If you truly thought about and accepted the fact that abortion is an irreversible act of killing then you, like me, could not support it or endorse it. There is no excuse or "right" that should outweigh the value of a human life. Not money, not status, not circumstance...nothing we tell ourselves can justify or reason sentencing innocent unborn children to death and in turn sentencing a woman to a lifetime of pain and regret. Surely we can all come to the conclusion that there are better, healthier, safer, and more noble solutions than abortion.

A post-abortive woman once told me that "Those graphic images may make people turn away their heads in order to not have to see the gruesome reality and in turn, turn their heads and hearts away from the truth you have to speak, if they turn away from the truth then they will never understand why abortion is wrong. I think it is a much more powerful statement and will result in more positive responses if you show pictures and videos of life inside the womb...the miracle of life...a baby dancing in her mother's safe sanctuary."

I, too, agree with her. In many cases an image of an ultrasound, sonogram or picture of a baby in the womb is sometimes all a person needs to see in order to choose life. Seeing a baby smile, or suck their thumb or move around inside the womb can be a life changing experience. I know for me, personally, I was able to see a 4D image of my second born nephew, Elliott and I fell to the floor in tears. To see him smiling there on the screen still in the womb was a powerful emotional and spiritual experience. I can only imagine how I will react when I see my own child's ultrasound someday. You realize that the baby is in fact ALIVE and active and CUTE! :) You can see a little bit of their personality and their appearance (mommy's nose, daddy's lips) You quickly put it together that they are a miracle, they are a living, breathing human miracle. Those images should speak for themselves.

To see medical illustrations of the prenatal development of human beings go to:
OR watch this video of the development of babies from conception to birth.



Some people need to see both images. In fact, I think the majority of people today need to see both sides. Both are very real and both are important in understanding each vital part of the decisions to be made regarding pregnancy, life, and abortion. If abortion is a "choice" we need to be certain, and without any doubts, or misconceptions of what that choice really is. You need to first understand all the facts about what happens during each stage of a pregnancy and also what happens during each stage of abortion, only then will you be able to make a fully informed decision.

"If you haven't seen what abortion does, then you will never understand what abortion actually is." --Clenard Howard Childress, Jr., Life Education And Resource Network

"The decision to have a child is to accept that your heart will forever walk about outside your body."
--Katherine Hadley

Hear the facts and learn what you can do to help keep abortion out of healthcare! 71% of Americans (both pro-life and pro-choice) are against taxpayer funded abortions....that 71% needs to SPEAK UP and contact your state representatives to tell them you want the abortion mandate and taxpayer funded abortions REMOVED from the healthcare bill! If we do not stop this from passing it will be the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade! Abortion industry lobbyists and their allies in Congress are about to ram through mandated government funding of abortion in health care reform legislation THIS WEEK in the U.S. House of Representatives



MYTH:
The Hyde Amendment and Capps Compromise prohibit tax payer funded abortions.

FACT:

On July 30, the House Energy and Commerce Committee added to H.R. 3200 an amendment written by staff to Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Ca.) and offered by Rep. Lois Capps (D-Ca.), both of whom have consistently pro-abortion career voting records. This “phony compromise” explicitly authorizes the “public plan” to cover all abortions.

This would drastically change longstanding federal policy. This means that any citizen who wants to take advantage of the public plan will be compelled to purchase coverage for abortion on demand.

The federal agency will collect the premium money, receive bills from abortionists, and send the abortionists payment checks from a federal Treasury account. It is a sham to pretend that this does not constitute funding of abortion. If this passes, the federal government will be running a nationwide abortion-on-demand insurance plan.

Under H.R. 3200 as amended by the Capps Amendment, some private plans may elect not to include abortion, but private plans that cover elective abortion will be federally subsidized. Both bills provide funds for the new premium-subsidy program through a new funding pipeline that would not be subject to the Hyde Amendment, which is merely a year-to-year provision that currently prevents federal funding of abortions in the Medicaid program.

As the Associated Press accurately reported in its August 5, 2009, analysis, “A law called the Hyde amendment applies the [abortion] restrictions to Medicaid . . . The [Obama-backed] health overhaul would create a stream of federal funding not covered by the restrictions.”

Further, there is no doubt whatsoever that the Obama Administration would immediately use the Capps authorization to cover elective abortions in the public plan.

On July 17, 2007, Barack Obama appeared before the annual conference of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Speaking of his plans for “health care reform,” Obama said, “In my mind, reproductive care is essential care. It is basic care, and so it is at the center and at the heart of the plan that I propose.”

He also stated that, “What we’re doing is to say that we’re gonna set up a public plan that all persons and all women can access if they don’t have health insurance. It’ll be a plan that will provide all essential services, including reproductive services.”

Slogans like "reproductive healthcare" and "essential reproductive health services" are nothing more than marketing slogans that attempt to conceal the true agenda. Hilary Clinton herself openly states that reproductive healthcare INCLUDES abortion. We can no longer be naive, indifferent, passive or silent. We MUST urge our representatives to explicitly write in the bill that taxpayer funded abortions be REMOVED from healthcare! No American, Pro-Life or Pro-Choice, should be forced to pay for another woman's abortion. Do the right thing America.

Pray for our country's leaders that they also do the right thing.
This week will define history.

For all those who have denied that abortion is not in the new healthcare bill that our government is trying to pass...believe it. Follow this link to read the latest news that PROVES that abortion funding is in fact in the healthcare bill.


Regardless of whether or not you are "pro-choice" or "pro-life" you should be against taxpayers being forced to pay for abortions. Abortion does not help or cure any diseases and yet if this healthcare bill gets put into place it is going to create more abortions and increase the number of medical complications not to mention increase the number of women who will suffer from the emotional, physical, and mental effects of abortion. Such a procedure that hurts more women and children than it helps should NOT be part of our healthcare.

Contact your representatives at: www.realhealthcarerespectslife.com and tell them you want to VOTE NO to abortion in healthcare! Be a voice...speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. Protect and respect life at all stages!

For every woman who participates in an abortion, there is a man. Although men are less likely to seek recovery, they suffer from many of the same emotional feelings as women.


I think most of us (myself included) often forget that abortion effects men too. We understand that abortion fatally harms children, we can even acknowledge that abortion hurts women but many of us don't realize or think about the fact that men too are hurt by abortion. I think this man's testimony speaks for many and I commend him for his courage and integrity!



There is healing and restoration to ALL who have been involved in an abortion. There are millions who have gone through many of the same emotions and the same hurt. The key to finding healing is to seek help. It is a sign of strength and courage to ask for help. There are some burdens that we're not meant to carry alone. There are people who want to be there for you and help you to get through whatever difficult situation you may find yourself in. You are not alone.

Here are a few organizations to provide you with the help you may be seeking :

Women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy also deserve unplanned joy!
While an unplanned pregnancy can be seen and felt as initial shock, fear, and panic, if given time to really think about it, not just fret about it, I think most if not all women will realize that their pregnancy, while unplanned, is still something to be happy and excited about. Yes, a baby will change your life...but I believe the change will be in more good ways than bad. Don't underestimate yourself when it comes to raising a child, no matter what the situation...You can do this. There are people who want to help you throughout your pregnancy and should you decide to keep your baby, there are people who want to support you in making sure you and your baby are taken care of! There are pregnancy resource centers across the U.S. that exist for mother's experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and are there to help regardless the circumstances. Consider your baby a gift, not a penalty, doing so will make all the difference in the world.

This is a video of the new ultrasound technology that gives us a window into the womb so that we can see the miraculous development of life and watch babies growing before our eyes.

This is what unplanned joy looks like! :)


The following videos are testimonies from Feminists For Life. These women share their personal stories of why they are pro-life and why they are involved with this group that works to help women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy with support, resources and compassion. Each give an insight to the reality that most women do not have abortions as a matter of choice but because they feel they have no resources to support a different option. There is no simple solution to an unplanned pregnancy...but positive support and resources are essential to help women when making a life changing decision. If a woman feels she has no other option but to have an abortion than we as a society have failed her! There needs to be more support and resources for these women. Women deserve better than abortion.









"The right to life should supersede all other rights because without life, no other rights would matter or exist."

This is not a quote by anyone famous or well-known....this is a definitive conclusion that I myself came to while considering the the argument of "a woman's right to choose" vs. "the unborn's right to live". For me....this statement should shatter all of the Pro-Choice arguments because the statement is unarguably true. If you or I were not living human beings, than our right to choose, our right to free speech, or any other right commonly fought for, would be non-existent. There would be no life to enforce such rights, there would be no life to protect such rights and there would be no life to create such rights. Without the establishment of life...there would be no reason for human rights to be established. Therefor I believe we should defend the right to life above all other rights. The right to life should override all other rights regardless of circumstances.

I want to share with you, a lecture given by Stephanie Gray from the Canadian Centre for Bioethical Reform entitled: "Abortion: Human Right or Human Rights Violation?" It was a part of Go Life: U of A Campus Pro-Life's Life Week 2009 guest lecture series. The sound quality is poor but you can still understand her speech. I think she makes some excellent points that address many pro-choice and pro-life arguments. (**There are no graphic images in these videos)

PART 3



I like that she presents the information in a way that gives valid comparisons and at the same time is not condemning anyone or attacking anyone. She is addressing the behavior of abortion not the people who have abortions or support abortions. I think this important because many women and men have already fallen victim to the choice of abortion and feel deep sorrow and regret because of it and can be led to believe that anyone who opposes abortion is also against them. This is not at all true. In fact, most of the Pro-Life supporters I have met, including myself personally, do not want to condemn or judge women and men for what they have done or what they stand for but instead embrace them for who they are and want to help to find healing and hope after abortion and to bring to others' attention the true reality of what abortion is.

Anyone who has had an abortion is not less worthy of my love and respect than someone who has not had one. In fact, those who have said that they regret their abortion and express the after math of what abortion did in their lives (like the women of Silent No More Awareness and others who have come forward to say that they wish abortion was never made available to them) Those people have SO MUCH of my respect! Because I know how difficult it is must be to say that, to have gone through what they went through and be able to talk about it takes so much courage and strength and I admire those who do so. If you are an abortion victim and have chosen to speak the truth about it...you are a hero in my eyes. You can help others with your testimony. You have purpose and dignity just as much as the rest of us. You are an important part in all of this. You have first hand experience and that makes you a powerful witness. You represent courage, strength, resilience, dignity, and truth. That is the kind of character and integrity I can certainly admire. My love and prayers go out to all of you. You are not alone.

What does Eugenics, Abortion, & Planned Parenthood all have in common? The answer to that question is: more than you think. There is a documentary entitled Maafa21 which reveals the true motives behind the abortion industry. There is an overwhelming amount of evidence that connects racism and genocide to Planned Parenthood, the leading abortion provider. Through quotes by Eugenicists, Politicians, and other public figures as well as through our own country's history it is revealed that the underlying motives of Planned Parenthood and that of their supporters is not merely coincidence. Did you know that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a devout racist who created the Negro Project designed to sterilize unknowing black women and others she deemed as undesirables of society? The founder of Planned Parenthood said, "Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated." Is her vision being fulfilled today? Read these statistics and decide for yourself....

Abortion has claimed the lives of over 13 million blacks in the last 30 years. It is the leading cause of death in African Americans. More blacks are killed by abortion than heart disease, cancer, AIDS and other violent crimes COMBINED.

The CDC reports that of the approximately 4000 abortions that are performed daily in the United States, 1452 of them are performed on African American women and their pre-born children. This means that although African Americans represent only 12% of the population of the United States, they account for 35% of the abortions performed in this country. 1 in 2 black children are aborted. 50% of the African American population are killed by abortion. 78% of abortion clinics are in minority communities. These are staggering statistics and should grab our attention and question motives.

Here is a clip from the documentary that shows the undeniable racist agenda of Planned Parenthood....



Here are a few quotes from the film that I found powerfully sobering.

"Terms like pro choice and reproductive rights and family planning are nothing more than marketing slogans. They are just code words that organizations like Planned Parenthood use to hide the fact that we are voluntarily submitting to mass suicide."

"They have imposed that the key to racial genocide is not in killing people but in convincing the target group to commit mass suicide. And the reason Planned Parenthood has been so successful is because unlike other eugenics organizations they have always been able to keep their agenda hidden from the public. In fact, sometimes, they are even able to keep it from their own people. I will assure you that there are Planned Parenthood workers and volunteers who have no idea what they are actually involved in. Then there are others who will look you right in the face and tell you that racism was not the driving force behind the American Eugenics Movement. But the truth is that if slavery had never existed, Planned Parenthood would not exist today."

"Every time one eugenics strategy failed another was invented to take its place, it would be a pattern that would be continued from one generation to the next until they finally discovered the strategy that worked."
(that strategy being abortion or mass suicide.)


We can't be be naive and need to realize the fact that in the 1960's when African Americans began to demand civil rights for the first time in American history there began a widespread cry in our government for legalized abortion. This is not coincidence. And we need to speak out and tell our nation that enough is enough....we are not going to let this happen anymore and that we need to bring an end to this hidden racial agenda. There needs to be an end to abortion.

You can watch much of this documentary in parts or in clips on youtube. I strongly encourage you to do so if you don't have the means to purchase the film. I want to end by sharing an interview with congressman Trent Franks about the film, he has some powerful things to say and think about. We as a nation need to realize that the eugenics movement that is occurring in our society today is wrong and needs to stop.


I felt a great need to write a blog today that shares my heart. I have been posting a lot of articles, videos, quotes and my opinions about the topic of abortion and I have stated in one of my older blogs the reason why I have become so passionate about it but I don't think I've made clear my purpose in it all. I wanted to make it clear that I am not merely making a religious stand against abortion....yes, my faith has something to do with it and I am not at all ashamed to say that but that's not the full story. And the truth is that speaking out against abortion is far from easy. I have opened myself up to criticism, to hate, to judgment and risk losing support of friends and family. I would not open myself up to any of that if I didn't feel a strong conviction to speak out. It would be much easier to just keep quiet and to not share my thoughts, feelings and information I've learned with anyone. But because so many of us have been silent is the reason things have gotten to where they are. I'm willing to break out of my comfort zone and risk it all in order to help just one person. So that is what this is really all about.

I am typically a reserved person who will often only speak when spoken to...I can be kind of shy and somewhat passive, but I can't be about this. The reason why is because not only are unborn children dying but women are suffering too. I think society often focuses on the unborn and forgets that their are women who are just as much a victim as those babies. I know now that our focus needs to be even more on the women who are considering abortion and those who have already fallen victim to it. We cannot ever judge these women because we have no idea what kind of inner turmoil they are dealing with or what brought them to the place of hopelessness and desperation whether it be fear and shame because of an unplanned pregnancy or it could be fear, shame, regret because of a past abortion. The fact is that everyone of those women need hope, they need someone who cares, they need help to get through their difficult situations. They don't need us judging them that is for sure! I believe God has called me to be a representative for Him, to share with others His love and the hope and forgiveness He offers to all of us.

"He has sent me to bandage the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from the darkness for the prisoners..." (Isaiah 61:1)

Maybe I want too much to save the world because that is just the person I am. If someone is hurting, I want to help. I want to make people smile I want to see good things happen in people's lives. And my passion truly is in helping my fellow women. So for any woman reading this....if you are struggling with anything in your life...anything at all...it doesn't necessarily have to be abortion, but if you need someone who will just listen and care about YOU and genuinely wants to help you live the life God has intended for you...a full and happy life...then please contact me. If I can't help I want to help you find someone who can. But please know that my arms are wide open to embrace you exactly as you are. That comes straight from my heart.

I personally have made some terrible mistakes in my past, things I am not proud of, things that have haunted me and that I regret...but what helped me get through those times and what will get me through any rough spots ahead was and will be God Himself along with family and friends who care enough to listen and to help me get back on track. I want to be that kind of friend to you. Someone who will listen and do whatever I can to help. You don't have to share any details with me, you can simply write me and say: "I'm struggling with something in my life, could you please just pray for me." And I would feel blessed to pray for you and/or with you. I just want to be a source of help and a bridge to hope for people.

I want to share with you a few verses that have spoken to me and comforted me personally....

"This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live." -Deuteronomy 30:19 (He wants all of us to choose life...not just regarding abortion but as an everyday choice...to live a life of love by accepting and following Christ.)

"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land." -2 Chronicles 7:14 (It is so comforting to know that no matter what we have done in our past or how many times we screw up God is a forgiving God...all we have to do is ask.)

Anyone who belongs to Christ gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life begins! -2 Corinthians 5:17 (This may be one of my favourite verses of all time! Through Christ we are made BRAND NEW...we have a fresh start...our past is forgiven and is no longer who we are. This helped me personally in my own life. I was struggling with guilt and regret and this verse helped me to let go of it all and see myself as a new person...I am not the person I once was, in fact that person is unrecognizable to me now (although I'm still FAR from perfect) My past does not define me, I am no longer bound by my regrets because God has wiped the slate clean and I can live my life free from my past. I am so thankful for the truth and freedom in the words of this verse.

Finally, I want to ask of anyone reading this that you pray for me. As I said before, this is not easy. I know some may think that I am just talking to hear myself talk or that I am being self righteous by speaking up and saying what is on my heart because much of what I say is controversial and this is a sensitive topic but the truth is....I'm scared to death to be doing what I'm doing. I'm definitely not doing it for the hell of it. As I said before, it would be so much easier to just be silent. I'm scared of my words being misinterpreted, I'm terrified by the responsibility that comes with taking this issue on, I'm afraid of personally being judged by all of you...I am human like the rest of you. I need encouragement, I need prayers, I need love and hope. We all have something in common...we need each other whether we want to admit it or not. This is me acknowledging that I need all of you. I need your prayers and support. I appreciate each one of you who are supporting me whether it be silently or those of you who have been emailing me or calling me to tell me you have been praying for me or that you stand behind me in this. Please continue to pray for me. I very much need your prayers.

Thank you so very much.
