Another day in the life of a mom of adult kids. It’s not all hearts and flowers, but every moment is worth it.
Read even more at my post abortive prolife #LIFE.
With tons of stories of kids and husbands getting bouquets of flowers for mom, making breakfast in bed or brunches or family cookouts, many moms are in despair and sometimes torment of a past she cannot change.
Moms lament their children lost to abortion or miscarriage; and we should. The child wasn’t just known by his or her mom, but also known by God. Birth does not define a child or person, conception does. The aborted or miscarried child lives on in eternity with a loving Savior.
This week, many moms are remembering a child lost to overdoses and chronic illnesses. No family is exempt to death; some cover it up better than others, some on their sleeves. But most of us moms carry our lost child very close to a part of us that hardly anyone knows.
We cannot know the depth of love until we’ve lost it. Our ability to survive after loss is simply the mercy and grace of God to hold us together and show He is in control. His love endures ALL things forever. It’s so comforting to know that even if no one else can see that part of your heart, God is there to comfort us.
Just this week, a friend lost her 40+ year old son. I cannot imagine the hurt and pain of it. She’s planning a funeral this week, not breakfast in bed or a brunch or a cookout. But she is still his mom, and should be regarded as such.
Remember ALL of the moms this week, we need it.
Being prolife, we have to be prolife a child’s entire life, from conception to natural death. There are so many kids out there that need traditional homes, that WANT traditional homes, with a married man and woman, a mom and a dad. I cannot imagine that any child that is adoptable wants to be exploited by an agenda. However, children don’t have a choice in who will be their new parents. The only people whose choice is accepted is the adoption agency, social workers, the parents-to-be and the judge. Children who are too young to acknowledge the adoption has to trust in the ‘system’ to place them with the family who will be most beneficial to them. But that is hardly the case. Even though the Constitution gives every American the right of religious freedom, we cannot give adoptable children and faith-based adoption agencies the same rights?
Once again, the child has no voice or choice in the matter; a choice of the life they wish to have and who will provide it. As parents, we all know that a great start in life will provide children with the necessary tools for the rest of their lives. But giving them over to an agenda? That is an entirely different matter.
Some years ago, we knew of a family in crisis who was forced to place their baby in temporary foster care, which was hard enough, but the STATE placed their baby with a lesbian couple. The baby’s parents and extended family asked that the baby be placed with other family members or a Christian traditional foster family – and the STATE said NO. Shouldn’t the parents have a voice in the matter? Much like medical kidnapping/foster care, children in crisis are at the mercy of a merciless system, state, and country.
We also know of a same sex couple who adopted a special needs child and exploits it. ALL. THE. TIME. Same sex couples believe that they are taking who no one else will, as if it’s some GRAND sacrifice, but the TRUTH is that adoption is made very difficult to the traditional family because of the costs; just healthcare insurance alone for the child or children in question is nearly unattainable for most hard working, every day families BESIDES attorney and agency fees.
With all of this agenda and exploitation and money changing hands, wasn’t adoption supposed to be about helping these kids get real traditional homes as quickly as possible?
Then, what also should be addressed here is why same sex couples go to faith-based adoption agencies in the first place…OR why the LGBT is targeting them in the first. Do you really think they do not know the basics of Catholicism, to name just one faith-based agency?
An article in the Detroit Free Press says: “Faith based agencies need to be able to recuse themselves from adoptions that would go against their faith based beliefs.” Now, while that is commendable, that isn’t enough. Adoption needs to be affordable and attainable to real families who really want to help children in crisis. Adoption needs real reform real quick.
While the state of Ohio passed a new law to unseal adoption records, which we disagree with, this still hasn’t touched what needs to be fixed in the system. The origins of one’s birth is quite a bit different than handing children over to an agenda rather than traditional homes that were once not only the norm, but the only legal way to adopt.
I know…then a bunch of kids would still be in foster care and ‘age out’ if they weren’t handed over to the LGBT agenda and single parents. The answer to that is the answer we give to most of the the injustice in the world: IT FIRST HAS TO START AT HOME AND IN THE CHURCH.
Religious freedom has to be protected and enforced at all times for everything. Being intolerant of the Constitution weakens everything every person holds dear: PERSONAL FREEDOMS AND LIBERTIES. If you take just one away from just one sect of people, you have just shot a hole in your own boat.

“My son was a crisis pregnancy that did not succumb to an abortion. He was meant to be here, he was known to God before the very foundation of the world, and He gave him to me…..God gave me this incredible kid because even in His infinite wisdom, even though He created the entire world and universe, EVEN THOUGH He is GOD, He trusted ME….ME….to entrust this incredible life to birth, to love, to instruct, to be there in the worst of it, no matter what.” Read the rest here.
Here we go again, another self-proclaimed expert telling the rest of us how wrong we are. Interestingly, if the tables were turned, proabort women don’t grumble so much. So what, we have to lap it up when democrats have majority…so….deal with it.
Passing laws and striking down bad law is how government works. When republicans have majority, we have to fix what rabid proaborts tried to initiate. It takes time to unwind what has been put in motion, but unwind it we shall.
With Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill, it has been proven Constitutional. PROVEN. But then again, democrats scurry to unwind and rewrite the Constitution to benefit them. All we are trying to do is fix what they broke. Roe was never constitutional but still passed the SCOTUS. Scary that this can actually happen; wrap your mind around people determined to make your beliefs, freedoms and liberties literally disappear. And for that, thank a Democrat.
With this so-called violation of women’s rights that republicans are accused of, rabid Democrats have conveniently forgotten they are the violator who spit on the Constitutional rights OF ALL to gain their own ground toward socialism and secularism. Yes, we noticed that you want God out of the picture, eroding our religious freedoms and liberties to get our eyes off the prize of a free nation that values and DEFENDS all human life, from conception to natural death.
Oh, the tangled web we weave….
But today is the day to say a resounding NO to liberal women who want the moon and stars and will stop at nothing to get it, even killing unborn Ohioans in the meantime.
Then, Ohioans are supposed to be enamored and in awe of the pile of lies that “Chelsea Tobias, a second-year Mandel Leadership Fellow in the master’s in social science administration program at Case Western Reserve University’s Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences blah blah blah” wrote? Read that here. Oh, and not impressed. Real women keep their ‘reproductive’ business private, withing the confines of their bedrooms with their own husband. Shoving Roe into every household of America is unconscionable, to say the VERY least.
Chelsea Tobias bemoans the ‘one subject rule’ of the Ohio Constitution but seems to forget that women like her wedged Roe into the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution to make it literally unrecognizable. So then, shouldn’t Ms. Tobias attack how Roe was forced upon a Constitution that promised life and liberty for all AND demand that Roe be removed so that the Fourteenth Amendment be of ONE SUBJECT?
If we have learned anything at all, it’s that a rabid Democrat’s road only goes one way while conservatives and republicans have to dodge their traffic.
To summarize, here is a note to all women who feel afflicted by everyone else not paying for your…lifestyle:
Dear so-called afflicted women of Ohio: Since you made it MY business to pay for YOUR ability to have sex without responsibility [contraception, abortion, so-called lgbt services], then you will have to reap the repercussions of those of us who have, at first, politely declined. But since you make the usual liberal stink about it, we’re going to get LOUDER AND LOUDER about our right TO SAY NO. You are infringing your so-called [yes, so-called] right to kill unborn children which infringes ALL OHIOANS THE RIGHT TO LIFE. Your demands, my dear so-called afflicted women of Ohio, attack all rights to ALL unborn children, not just yours.
Ms. Tobias and others, women in Ohio need a champion, not a syrupy bad law and a lousy attitude. Women in Ohio woke up in shelters, sometimes with their children. Women in Ohio have addictions. Women in Ohio have family that have shut them out and they have nowhere to go and no job to pay for it and no car to GET them to a job, if they could get one. Stop whining about having sex and abortion on demand, on the taxpayer’s dime, and look for real women in real need in real Ohio.
THAT’S the real war on women.
“Oh…..the irony of it all! The Jezebel Church designed by the government to NOT have religious freedom or religious liberty? SERIOUSLY? And America is falling for it???? Jesus spoke about the Corrupt Church to John the Beloved on the Isle of Patmos…” Read the rest here.
Protect Religious Freedom Dayton: The Public Sidewalk and Religious Freedom: “Many of us in the Dayton area witness and pray at an abortion facility owned and operated by the pioneer of the partial birth abortion, Martin Haskell. In fact, if you go to the sidewalk enough, you’ll see that he is a ‘guest abortionist’ from time to time. You’ll notice him by the brand new Cadillac Escalade he drives all the way from Cincinnati. There is one other abortionist who professes to be Catholic and a grandmother who kills four days per week at Women’s Med Center in Kettering. Roslyn Kade is proud to drive her drop-top Lexus to work every day.”
Here in Dayton, we do not want LGBT hate money spent here. But thanks to the NCAA and their outloud hatred of religious freedom and the Constitution, their wrath of anything decent has spilled over the state line to try and divide the rest of us in Ohio. No, we don’t want your tainted blood money, no matter how badly our pitiful ‘Mayor’ begs for it. Perhaps if she was a better servant than a hater of the rest of us?
We demand the Mayor of Dayton to protect ALL OF US, including Christians and their small businesses. Instead, she tries to create protected classes. That is NOT what our country was founded upon, but it is why people left Europe hundreds of years ago, to escape tyranny and persecution from those in political power. And she wonders why Montgomery County is LOSING RESIDENTS? Nan Whaley panders to the LGBT and importing muslim refugees and calls herself ‘diverse’. All that she has actually accomplished is building herself an ivory tower of inclusion and hate to everyone else.
The Dayton Daily News said this morning: “Dayton officials hope to capitalize on growing backlash against Indiana’s controversial religious freedom law by attracting companies and individuals who are looking to flee the Hoosier state because of their opposition to the new legislation.” Capitalize? Clearly, Mayor Nan Whaley is trying to capitalize on LGBT hate of Christians in Dayton, see the video here. Yes, she wants your money.
A local reporter said on the evening news: “Mayor Whaley stopped short of imposing a travel ban to Indiana. That is what Seattle’s Mayor and Connecticut’s Governor did for government workers who would be traveling on the tax payer dime.” Commerce and business is open to everyone in Ohio and Dayton; the new law in Indiana [and 19 other states, so far] will keep LGBT hate from targeting known Christian small businesses to exploit.
Clearly, Nan Whaley hates religious freedom, the Constitution and Dayton or she wouldn’t pimp out Dayton to take hate money. Certainly her refugee friends were supposed to fill in the downward economical abyss she helped Dayton to accomplish?
Remember, Ms. Whaley not only attended but was instrumental in getting Cecil Richards of Planned Parenthood in Cincinnati for a fund raiser last year for more abortion in Ohio. Mayor Nan Whaley is not a friend to ALL DAYTONIANS, especially to Christians [she claims to be a Catholic], the traditional family and marriage, and to the unborn.
According to State Representative Teresa Fedor [D], innocent rape conceived babies do. Ms. Fedor took to the floor of the Ohio House to shamelessly grandstand about her rape and abortion to continue the rampage on the innocent rather than focus on the crime of the rapist. What Fedor did was deplorable and dishonoring to all women and their rape conceived babies. Click here to see testimonies of people conceived in rape or kept their children.
Fedor wants ‘respect’ for her abortion when in reality she pretty much spit on everyone else’s testimony of being conceived in rape and lived to tell the story OR a mom who brought her rape conceived daughter to the Ohio Statehouse to prove the dignity and humanity of each and every child conceived in rape. It is those I applaud for their honesty and love. Read original testimonies here [scroll down to HB69].
And without a doubt, her story has made every hag rag in America to further her agenda.
Fedor said: “You don’t respect my reason, my rape, my abortion, and I guarantee you there are other women who should stand up with me and be courageous enough to speak that voice…,” she said on the House floor. “What you’re doing is so fundamentally inhuman, unconstitutional, and I’ve sat here too long…….I dare any one of you to judge me, because there’s only one judge I’m going to face…….I dare you to walk in my shoes.……This debate is purely political. I understand your story, but you don’t understand mine. I’m grateful for that freedom. It is a personal decision, and how dare government get into my business.” Read the rest here.
And I will address every accusation; and remember, I have personally testified for the Heartbeat Bill since it’s inception, FOUR times. I have been in the committee rooms with others testifying for or against it. I have all of their testimonies ON FILE. In other words, I know what I’m talking about.
RESPECT: Clearly, Fedor shows ZERO respect for women who chose to keep their rape conceived child OR to men and women who were conceived in rape. In one grandstanding moment, she made it clear that they should not have been born and had a 100% chance of being aborted.
REASON: Fedor’s reason to kill her unborn child was wrong. She made her own innocent unborn child pay for the crimes of the rapist. What Fedor forgets is that her now dead unborn rape conceived baby was also half her DNA.
RAPE: I have known women and men who have been BRUTALLY raped. Rape is a horrific act made upon a person who cannot defend themselves against their attacker, much like how abortion is to an unborn baby who cannot defend him/herself.
ABORTION: Abortion, no matter how you look at it, still kills an unborn child, not the memory.
COURAGEOUS: Having courage is to do the right thing, not the wrong thing. Fedor did not have courage [nor does anyone who has an abortion] but had contempt and hatred for a child for whom she was the mother.
INHUMAN: It is inhuman to murder the innocent.
UNCONSTITUTIONAL: Total myth. Search “David Forte Heartbeat Bill Testimony”. Mr. Forte’s original testimony for the HB125 made it very clear that the Heartbeat Bill IS constitutional. He’s kind of a big deal, considering he’s a Professor of Law at Cleveland State University, holds degrees from Harvard College, Manchester University, England, the University of Toronto and Columbia University. AND Professor Forte was the inaugural holder of the Charles R. Emrick, Jr.- Calfee Halter & Griswold Endowed Chair at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, Cleveland State University.
GOVERNMENT IN HER BUSINESS: Ms. Fedor, really? Women like you insinuate the government in our parental rights, our taxpayer funded schools AND NOW in our personal lives with abortion. The government is squarely situated in every bedroom in American because of UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAW like Roe v. Wade.
Teresa Fedor still walks in hatred and needs real healing of that horrific moment of being completely helpless to her attacker. She needs to learn love and compassion for children conceived in rape.
AND by the way, no one laughed at her rape during her rampage, maybe at her typical grandstanding? Ms. Fedor needs to get off her throne and get back to the reality of LIFE.
Dear Governor Mike Pence: THANK YOU! You have done more of what you promised than most other lawmakers in these United States ever attempt. No empty promises, no closed doors. And even though the usual suspects hate you and your pro-American agenda, WE APPLAUD YOU!
You have said a resounding NO to protecting certain social classes knowing that every American is protected equally under the current Federal law. You are keenly aware, as all lawmakers should be, of our fought for Constitution and its actual contents. Considering recent events, I have to wonder if anyone who believes themselves above the law has actual read what thousands of our forefathers died for. Certainly the Supreme Court and the current administration has decided themselves to be as God rather than the public servants they were elected for or appointed to be.
As your neighbor, we see what true prolife leadership can do to protect the absolute least of these. Thank you Governor Pence for doing what you can under the unconstitutional federal law of Roe v. Wade. It is clear that you value life more than the average Governor. As your neighbor, we see real trailblazing in the state to our West. Our own Governor promises to protect life and succumbs to ‘business as usual’ to protect his own personal agenda; he’s already been politely and openly saying he will not sign the Heartbeat Bill into law if it has the chance to cross his desk.
Nationally, I am so proud of your stance against an agenda meant to force our businesses, family, schools and private lives into a bed of vipers. As pilgrims who escaped tyranny, our beloved United States of American has turned into exactly what we escaped hundreds of years ago. Every drop of blood spilled on every battle field, every life lost to protect our personal freedoms means nothing to those who believe themselves more evolved than true blue Bible believing Americans. Their personal evolution is jammed down the throat of every person living and breathing FREEDOM already fought for.
Governor Pence, there is nothing more detestable than the unthankfulness of one who spits on our Constitutional rights as free PRIVATE Americans to do business as we see fit, worship as we are led to, teach our own children, support our troops, own/operate/carry firearms, support unborn and born life, and to fly Old Glory over every bit of it.
As your neighbor, we thank you and we support you, especially through the NCAA-made debacle and their one-sided, lopsided, far-reaching attempt to shame you and your glorious state of Indiana. And as a Christian, we humbly accept our friends but do not hate them. After all, most of us were the ‘least of these’ before coming to Christ. The opposing agendas hate Christians, Christianity and Jesus Christ because they hate us. The LGBT has essentially made it their priority to shame Christians first then legislate their way to fully taking our rights AS Christians away. This is truly troubling to Christians and the Church who love, and do not hate, the sinner.
In closing, our agenda is laid clear: we are committed to support all life – born, unborn, regardless of their stage of life or waywardness – and defend each and every one. All that we ask is that they do not impede on our protected Constitutional rights as American citizens, Hoosiers, Buckeyes, and the like.
