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."

To hear true testimonies from several former abortion providers please click on the picture or link below:

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: 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 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."

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

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


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.
