BREAKING NEWS From Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati:
“August 20, 2014 (Cincinnati, OH): News outlets are reporting that late term abortionist Martin Haskell will not appeal to the First District Court of Appeals in an attempt to contest Judge Jerry Metz’ decision to uphold the Ohio Department of Health order that his Women’s Med Center abortion facility be closed for operating outside Ohio health and safety laws.
“The Ohio law has been upheld and the decision not to appeal confirms its importance in protecting women’s health and safety,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati.
“Concerns still remain, in that Martin Haskell’s Women’s Med Center remains open and could still offer chemical, non-surgical, RU-486 abortions, which are also a a proven serious health hazard, contributing to documented deaths.”
There isn’t a conclusion yet, Haskell’s Kettering facility will likely be open to kill six days rather than the four days it is currently open. Haskell’s Indiana facility, under Indiana law, can abort up to 12 weeks. In Ohio, there is a 20 limit, further if ‘danger’ or ‘health’ of the mother.
As we get more information, we will update accordingly.
THAT is probably the number one question I am most often asked, after “Don’t you people have a job?” People are funny…
Yesterday, a woman said that her friend confessed to having an abortion many, many years ago and can’t get past the ‘past’. She asked my opinion of what to tell her, and here it is: JESUS.
In my mind’s eye, I see a crucified Jesus dying on a cross for me…bloodied, bludgeoned, humiliated. He died a public death for ME and my sinful past that cannot be erased from my memory or the history that others insist on remembering, you know….just in case I forgot ;)
My Faith is in my risen LORD. It is His shed Blood which washed my sin away never to be remembered again. Then, it is up to ME to rest in His finished work on the Cross, that I AM FORGIVEN and that NO ONE can take that away from me. EVER.
My dear sisters in the LORD: If you have had an abortion, I understand what you are going through, I have carried that bag. You do not have to carry this heavy burden any longer! TRUST IN JESUS – He will forgive, He will LOVE you, He will protect you!
Way too often I hear how God cannot possibly forgive them. NOTHING can be further from the truth! It isn’t God who won’t forgive, it’s people…people that you TRUST who will try to separate you from God by reminding you of your past. Relative righteousness is how people feed off other’s miseries and histories. Do not be fooled, God is not MOCKED; He will make beauty FROM ashes!
We need to require more from our friends and family who seek to keep us under subjection to THEM.
We are His, We are forgiven, We will NOT be forsaken.
Jesus said: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” [Matthew 11:28-30]
In the state of Ohio, legislators worked TIRELESSLY to pass prolife legislation since the recent elections. There was great progress made to keep women safe by requiring abortionists to have REAL admitting privileges at a LOCAL hospital, just like any other doctor that performs any surgery, such as plastic surgeons and oral surgeons.
Why won’t women research the abortionist like they would for shoes or purses?
Shouldn’t it important to you to find out if your doctor is in good standing with a local hospital? And if he/she is not, wouldn’t you like to know why? Then why do abortionists get a [judicial] pass?
“What are admitting privileges? Admitting privileges are the right of a physician to admit patients to a particular hospital, and to provide specific services in that facility. In order for a physician to be granted privileges, a hospital generally checks the individual’s medical credentials, license and malpractice history.” Read the rest here.
A couple of days ago I had an attorney’s ear who happened to be Republican and asked him about the appeals process for the notorious partial-birth abortionist Martin Haskell; he has appealed AGAIN and I’d like to know when that is going to stop and a final decision made. I also inquired about the Toledo facility that is to lose their license today [8/12/14]. I believe that at least four abortion facilities in Ohio are ‘operating’ outside of the law, without admitting privileges to any hospital.
The attorney said probably never; as long as the abortionist has the money TO appeal, they can continue regardless of what the law says. The morbid part of it is that they can continue to hurt women and kill unborn infants while in appeals. PEOPLE: This isn’t a botched nose job…children are DYING.
To infinity and beyond? The liberal judges that abortionists easily find to hear these cases could tell them to cease all ‘business’ until a decision is made…but they seldom do. Judges and the abortionist’s attorneys cite so-called ‘hardship’ making abortion minded women to go further to abort. Whose hardship is it? Is it theirs because of their lofty lifestyle and the blood money it takes to support it OR is the hardship for the unborn baby that will be disarticulated and shredded during an abortion procedure as the appeals process drones on and on and on?
Well, there you go: Abortionists can appeal forever and continue to kill in Ohio. Anyone who does not follow the law is a CRIMINAL.
The Great Prolife Commission: Knowing that there may not be an end to the judicial revolving door for abortionists, we have to continue steadfast and in boldness of spirit to save the unborn from abortion death EVEN if that is one mom and baby at a time. The sidewalk is that slim gap between life and death for the babies…we need to continue to utilize it and capitalize it for the Glory of God to save lives and further the Great Commission.
Go to the sidewalk, rain or shine, heat or snow, closed or open and PRAY. Bring friends, neighbors, family and your church and PRAY TODAY. EVERY STEP COUNTS IN THE RACE.
UPDATE: The Toledo abortion facility, Capital ‘Care’ Network, got their ‘stay’ today.
Most county and state fairs will have political party booths, and with this being a midterm year, you’d think you would have seen some actual candidates. Alas, not at the Miami County Fair in Ohio. Instead attorneys were holding down folding chairs at the Miami County Republican ‘Headquarters’ booth. And pitiful it was.
I typically wear a prolife or Christian gear wherever I go to provoke people to think about our precious unborn and the Lord Jesus Christ. No, I don’t get tons of ‘thumbs up’. Today was no different; I wore my 40 Days for Life gear and had a very pleasant day at the county fair with my husband…even with the sneers and jeers of the audacity to actually wear my faith and conviction OUT LOUD.
After visiting the Miami County Right to Life booth, we went to the Republican Headquarters booth. There were two men there, none looked like any of the candidates of that district. But I asked, somewhat offhandedly, “Are you prolife?” SILENCE. TOTAL SILENCE. One of the men piped up with an apathetic “The Republican platform says prolife.” Really. Sir, I suggest you READ the GOP platform issues regarding protecting unborn life from conception to birth AND the abolition of abortion:
THERE ARE NONE REQUIRING THE ABOLITION OF ABORTION. Until there is a reversal of Roe v. Wade, there cannot be sanctity of unborn life protection by the federal government. Although the platform does call for the sanctity of all human life, not every card carrying Republican will follow it.
Being totally patronized by what looked and acted like the Sanhedrin, we left the booth but came back about 15 minutes later ANGRY at the party we supported through the years because they SAID they are prolife. Well, the proof is in the platform…NOT PROLIFE. By the time we came back, there were three men there – all attorneys, still no candidates.
The assumption that prolifers are illiterate, ignorant and ill-informed of the issues and platforms is really quite dangerous. Like Sarah Palin said, “Don’t bring a lawsuit to a gunfight….there is no place for lawyers on the front lines.”
I really hate having to reiterate my prolife/ministry/political resume over and over to let these talking heads know that I’m not your presumed illiterate, ignorant and/or ill-informed prolifer. But there I went again, defending who we are in the FIGHT FOR LIFE.
Probably the most ridiculous thing this attorney said was that we raised the faith card, making our ‘faith’ better than his AND said that our efforts are more righteous than theirs. Not true, that was never said – but nice tactic…take the focus off how pathetic your so-called prolife republican stance is. Yes, we had a witness. A man came along to see and hear the spectacle. He wasn’t pleased with what he heard, either.
While I had an attorney’s ear, I asked him about the appeals process for the notorious partial-birth abortionist Martin Haskell; he has appealed AGAIN and I’d like to know when that is going to stop and a decision made. He said probably never. Well, there you go: Abortionists can appeal forever and continue to kill in the meantime. I asked why they can continue to “make a living” while other criminals have to mind the law. But I suppose that abortionists raise the Liberal card and get their pass.
But there was one last question that we had for the Sanhedrin: What is Miami County Republican Party position on gay marriage?
And the Sanhedrin said: WE HAVE NONE.
One a side note: They refused to tell us their names.
Well there you go. The GOP is on a platform of NEUTRALITY, said from the mouths of our own Miami County Republican Headquarters. Where were the actual candidates Bill Beagle and Stephen Huffman?
We are in trouble.
This visit at the Republican fair booth was a polar opposite of last year at the Warren County Fair where there was an actual, real life State Representative shaking hands and getting to know people in his district. Yep, that actually happened.
LET ME SUMMARIZE: This is happening everywhere, maybe the exception is Texas; they seem to do what the actually say…like shut down abortion facilities when they say they will. The sad fact is that what Texas does is no longer the norm, it may never get there again. WE THE PEOPLE have to discern who is actually going to support LIFE from conception to natural death, and it may not be a Republican any longer. Since the oust of Eric Cantor by a Tea Party candidate Dave Brat, this sheds a bright light on the possibilities of the conservative upswing in the United States.
Then….is the Tea Party the new black? In a conservative world, yes it is.
We see neighbors walking for fitness sporadically while we are on the sidewalk. Yesterday, a neighbor walked right in front of us in her brand new blue Nike’s and asked: “Is THAT an abortion clinic?”
I was kind of shocked by that…how can she, or anyone else, not know this? We have Life Chain, TWO 40 Days Campaigns per year (3-4 rallies apiece), constant vigil particularly when the facility is open….“Is THAT an abortion clinic?” WOW. But my surprise is short lived: Churches refuse to acknowledge this facility, too….or we would see much more activity….which we don’t. The Church won’t dirty their hands with America’s greatest tragedy.
Tip of the iceberg, I’d say. Who else doesn’t know? If there is no participation from the churches in the community, how can they know?
Some abortion facilities hide very well from their neighbors and local businesses – and then there are others that ‘hide’ in plain sight. Haskell’s murder mill tried to hide but it didn’t quite work. His legendary work of being a ‘pioneer’ of the partial birth abortion didn’t help his anonymity much.
This killing facility has been at the exact same address since the mid 80’s. I’ve seen the county auditor report for how much money the property has LOST through the years. It’s been an eyesore on this community and has literally brought down the property value of nearby homes. A house right behind it can’t sell at all. Who would want to live right behind a place that murders unborn infants?
“Is THAT an abortion clinic?” You have wonder how many other people who live near the place have no idea that America’s greatest tragedy is right in their own back yard. Conversely, I’m sure that many don’t care that this murder mill is in their midst…until they try to sell their home. Are they ‘sincerely deceived’?
America’s greatest tragedy is sat squarely in a neighborhood with families, retirees, parks, churches…right in your own backyard.
I stand with many people on the sidewalk from other walks of life, religions, and why they come to the battle ground of the abortion wars. We each have our own story, mine is unique…so is yours.
All I can do is give an account of what it is like to be post abortive from my perspective and in the line of fire.
Let me start off with GOD IS GOOD! I couldn’t do any of this without His mercy and grace. While I did not have the strength to overcome from my own family, I have a heavenly Father who loves and forgives and WANTS me to overcome, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me,” [Matthew 16:24]. I had to first deny myself – who I WAS without Christ – and pick up the cross that no one else will and be the disciple I am meant to be.
As I continue along in these abortion wars on and off the sidewalk, people ask me what it’s like to be post abortive. I’ve always found this hard to explain but today I had a revelation that explains it fully. I came across a new Operation Save America video from their last national event in New Orleans. The event included an aborted child’s funeral in Jackson Square. A young man was carrying this tiny casket…and there it was.
Post Abortive women carry this tiny but very heavy casket of their own aborted child [or children] everywhere they go. The weight of it is incredible; the casket not only has our dead child in it, but it also has all of the regret, shame, guilt and self-hatred with it.
Every day without Christ, the tiny white casket gets heavier and heavier. There are days when we really think everyone else can see it and THAT is excruciatingly painful. It’s like the scarlet letter, out loud and for everyone to mock and scorn.
With Christ the burden is lighter but still there, it was my own sin that led me down a path to being post abortive. Because of the loving kindness of a risen Savior, I can now be the soldier in the war to stop what killed my unborn child. My scarlet letter will always be there but I wear it differently – my pain can keep another from taking a step down the same path.
On the sidewalk, we openly tell people what abortion is, what it will do today and what it will do in the future. There are no lies and no exaggerations, only truth and the Gospel.
During the funeral, Father Frank Pavone said it best: “Because they were killed in secret, we will honor them in the broad of day. Because after all, the killing of these children by abortion is promoted and advertised publicly; well therefore we are going to honor them publicly.”
I publicly honor my child every day I am on the sidewalk. THAT is how I heal from abortion.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Psalm 3:5-6
Michael Freiman died this past month. He was an abortionist, a murderer. He had children and grandchildren; he upheld quite a nice long life which NONE of the children he aborted enjoyed, nor most of the women he violated.
Dr. Michael Freiman failed women. He sold abortion and laughed in luxury with his wanted family. He lived 85 years and died of lung cancer on July 17.
And he killed my unborn baby in 1978.
“On a balmy day that May, Dr. Freiman performed the first legal abortion in the state in 139 years….He performed six more that day.” Read the rest here.
His pitiful obituary continues to say: “Dr. Freiman was on the front line of the abortion debate, performing thousands of abortions at Missouri’s first legal abortion clinic, he tried to keep a low profile.”
“His patients adored him. Years after he retired, they would still call him, just to have the chance to talk to him.” I wish I could hear the conversations that started with YOU LIED, IT WAS A BABY.
Ironically, he wants his memorial contributions paid to the St. Louis Holocaust Museum. THE HOLOCAUST MUSEUM. Read the rest here.
My, isn’t that the quandary…Ol’ Nan supports so-called refugee children but not our own children in the womb who are here LEGALLY? Nan claims that the federal government contacted her which is very hard to believe. Congressman Mike Turner said that [Whaley should] “turn her issues not to federal issues but to the people in need in this community.” Read the rest here [VIDEO].
Exactly right Rep. Turner, Ms. Whaley needs to tend to people that have made this city home for GENERATIONS…and can prove it. People here are sick, hungry and homeless but instead allows THOUSANDS of ‘refugees’ to come here on their dime? How is that fair to those that call this place ‘home’?
“We’ve received great response from the community,” she said. Interestingly, protests started immediately. Meanwhile in East Dayton, a Turkish ‘refugee’ said, “Like for me, government supported us,” he said. “Food stamps, medicaid, all that stuff and right now I have my own business.” Read the rest here [VIDEO].
“Congressman Turner, who represents Dayton and Wright-Patterson Air Force base and is the former mayor of Dayton, put out a release saying ‘Mayor Whaley does not have the authority, the resources or the support to speak on behalf of Dayton and the surrounding communities’.” Read the rest here.
Read the letter that Congressman Mike Turner, [also signed by the Mayor of Centerville, Greene County Commissioners, Montgomery County Sheriff, Mayor of Beavercreek] sent to the White House regarding Nan Whaley NOT having the authority to take the ‘refugee’ children here.
Dayton has dealt with ‘immigration’ and ‘refugees’ for a long time; actual citizens take issue with this because they need food stamps, they need medicaid, and their own business…but our Mayor seems to think that illegals and so-called ‘refugees’ make better Daytonians rather than those that have been here for generations.
Mayor Nan Whaley is a fraud and needs to step down before this city falls down in a heap. Seventy-two unborn Ohioans, here legally, die an abortion death every day in Ohio. Why doesn’t she ‘save’ them from dismemberment and disarticulation rather than support Planned Parenthood?
Please Nan…leave while we still have a city. Plugging up holes in Dayton’s economy with illegals and ‘refugees’ will not make it float.
Nope. Aim wasn’t that good….but the intent was. How do two ‘grown’ men driving past an abortion facility find it necessary to spray a prolife senior citizen – alone on a public sidewalk – with a 1/2 dozen eggs?
One of the eggs didn’t break, nor did any hit their intended target.
Prolifers are expected to follow the law while prochoicers with little to do with their time break the law.
Another case in point recently was at the last abortion facility in Jackson, Mississippi. Now, while I love to visit the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Jackson is quite another part of the world that doesn’t quite mesh with its polite southern counterpart. Created Equal was at this last abortion facility in Jackson and watched, along with police officers, as prochoicers thieved Created Equal’s signs…many of them. Click here for the video and story. Currently, Created Equal has filed a lawsuit against the Jackson Police Department citing harassment and threats toward law abiding peaceful prolifers.
“There are nine instances reported in the lawsuit where the claimants argue police officers violated their rights and harassed them while they were not breaking any laws. The suit also repeatedly claims that JPD officers told different protesters they could not put signs on public sidewalks but instead had to hold them at all times,” the story goes on to say.
Who does the law protect? Not law abiding peaceful prolifers on a public sidewalk or right-of-way.
At a prolife event just last week, our sidewalk was riddled with police officers. The city spent THOUSANDS for these officers watch us pray, sing and children draw with sidewalk chalk. Some of the officers were kind, others were intentionally ‘over zealous’.
Under the noses of tourists, neighbors and other locals, abortion is being sold. You need to look behind the centuries old architecture, art museums and music. The French Quarter is not the heart of the city…the new Planned Parenthood regional abortion facility site is squarely seated right in the middle of the city, by design.
Recently I finished a prolife missionary trip to Louisiana and Texas. While in New Orleans, I went to the site of the regional abortion facility that Planned Parenthood is TRYING to build. Over a year ago, I went to the Press Rally and since then all that has been built is a rent-a-fence, some concrete forms and roughed-in utilities; photos are below.
Louisiana Right to Life put up signage the day after I left NOLA; I was a bit concerned that I saw no one there both days. Apparently they need more sidewalk warriors to cover some prayer time [HINT HINT]. The photo shows the only bit of ‘life’ at the Planned Parenthood site, and was apparently vandalized. LRTL should be more concerned and willing to check on the property; the sign was there both days. Not good.
However, this week a national prolife minstry called Operation Save America is having their annual national event in New Orleans and has made quite the splash. According to the local newspaper, there will be ‘heightened security, both uniformed and plain clothes’. That does not hinder this group because they follow the law, not break it. Simply, OSA is there to protect the unborn, preach the Gospel and community outreach. God Bless them for what they do and please pray for their safety.
Boycotting works; telling the TRUTH works. Some of the contractors and subcontractors had no idea that they were working on an abortion facility and left the job. Others have not left, click hereto see who is still on the job.
Pray that Planned Parenthood gets the hint to LEAVE and a gospel mission of prolifers and ministers stay to spread the love of Jesus Christ; without Him, we are nothing. With abortion, we die…every one of us.
