SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: Egg on the face?

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? KEEPLIFELEGAL

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.

Moral of the story: Bring a camera….and use it.

REAL BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS: The Abortion Wars Continue

2014-07-11 12.58.41

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 2014-07-07 09.47.47HINT]. 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 here to 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.

HOBBY LOBBY DECISION: Victorious, at what cost?

While I am pleased with the decision, the fact that we still have to fight for our most basic rights is ludicrous. Over and over again we fight this fight, a fight that WAS fought for, to keep our religious freedom and freedom of speech LEGAL.

How many unborn lives were lost because businesses were forced to provide toxic contraception and abortion coverage to workers?

I believe that Christians need to start acting like Christians; they need to use their God-given ability to share the Gospel all the time, to spend their money with like-minded individuals and companies, and be what God called them to be. We have caved over and over and over again as a Christian society to protected classes of people who hate us. It’s time to for the tail to stop waggin’ the dog.

For now, the Hobby Lobby decision is a victory – but as Christians we need to continue to fight the good fight of faith, be the example we are called to be, to never take no as the usual answer from the social agenda.

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.” 1Peter 3:15

TESTIMONY: Choosing LIFE & Faith, no matter what.

For there to be a testimony, there has to be a test. And as Christians, we are tested all the time. In a time when a woman finds herself pregnant at the very worst time, God tells us it’s never bad time to be the life giver He made women to be. Since the foundation of the WORLD we have been known by God, each with a divine purpose only He can give.

FAITH.

Being on the sidewalk, we hear so many ‘reasons’ why they can’t have their baby. But there are no reasons…not ONE…good enough to kill an innocent unborn child entrusted to the parents by God.

What a blessing to read this incredible testimony given by God’s woman, a woman who follows Him no matter what. After all, lemonade tastes much better than sour, bitter lemons.

Thank you God’s woman, for sharing this incredible testimony, and thank you for choosing LIFE: “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ,” [Gal 6:2]

Written in her own hand, enjoy this beautiful testimony:

One year ago today at this time I was saying hello for the first time to my 2nd little bundle of joy, Zachary! I knew as soon as I found out he was a boy that the Lord put the name Zachary on my heart for him. I knew the meaning of the name at the time but I didn’t know why in particular the Lord wanted me to name him it until after he was born. You see I’m not going to go into details but a few months before Zach’s birth I started going through one of the worst times of my life and it was something completely out of my control. There was nothing I could do to avoid or help the situation but I had to just deal with it and do it 7 months pregnant at that! The beauty of being a child of God though is that I didn’t have to deal with it on my own but as always my Heavenly Father was right there by my side taking care of me in any way He could. If I only had the time to tell you all how many ways God has showed me how much He loves me and has had my back through this thing! One of the biggest ways was by Him giving me Zach. Before his birth I honestly was a little worried about how I was going to take care of a newborn and a 3 year old in my emotional state but after he was born and I spent a little time with him I understood immediately why the Lord gave me the name Zachary for him. Zachary means “God remembered” so you see in a time of deep despair God remembered me and gave me a literal bundle of joy! He really is just the happiest most laid back baby ever and has been since his birth. You can pretty much guarantee a laugh out of him whenever you see him. Of course my 3 year old already made me smile and laugh everyday no matter what but the Lord gave me another little blessing to make me smile and laugh even more despite what I was going through. Words can’t even describe the love I have for my 2 little boys and the joy that they bring to my life! [Anonymous]

The Bible says, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: Are we doing it wrong?

Well, to be sure IF you are doing it wrong, there has to be a benchmark to judge by. And right now, I see none in the region where we live and witness.

Being a Christian comes with responsibilities to others, and not just the ‘pretty’ ones. How many times have prolife ministries come churches to be a presence on the sidewalk? But do they come? Not many, if any at all.

Okay, how many times has prolife ministries mentioned through social media a prolife ministry opportunity and hardly anyone shows?

KEEPLIFELEGALHmmm, and why won’t Pastors do anything outside of the box on the other side of their church doors? How many Pastors are within a quarter mile distance from the abortion facility and NEVER come to the sidewalk to pray? Is the planned execution of the unborn NOT ministry?

In a four county metro area, there are over 840K residents, and HUNDREDS of churches that circle just ONE ABORTION FACILITY. Still, no one comes. They know the need, they understand the fate of nearly every unborn baby that goes there…still no one comes.

We go to the Statehouse to protest and testify for our precious unborn, to legally further their rights as citizens to be protected. Very few Pastors come to rally at the Capital for the ‘least of these’, if any at all.

WE HAVE TO FIGHT THE OPPRESSION THAT KEEPS CHRISTIANS AND PASTORS FROM MINISTERING TO THE LOST AND DYING IN OUR OWN BACK YARD!

Everyone loses in the abortion wars; babies die, parents are heartbroken, the economy suffers, God is ANGRY and the Church does nothing when it was their fight all along.KEEPLIFELEGAL

Christians, you’re doing it wrong. Just because you don’t go doesn’t mean abortion went away. The sidewalk is still there, full of grief and pain. The sidewalk needs every one of us to go and pray.

Jesus said, All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.” [Matthew 25:32-33]

The Church allowed abortion, now it’s time to take it back. Go to the sidewalk, tell your Pastor to go to the sidewalk….and PRAY.

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: Mother’s Day…for the rest of us.

This morning we had our Mother’s Day prayer meeting in front of the abortion facility. We prayed, we sang, we cried, we rejoiced. Today we remembered the moms who aborted children, the precious ones in Heaven, and for the babies who are schedule to die. KEEPLIFELEGAL

Mother’s Day. Yes, Mother’s Day…but what about the rest of us? This is not the time to be bitter or sad but reflect and be a positive change in the life of a mom that is in the valley of decision. Being post-abortive, you have a vast amount of knowledge that these abortion-minded women need.

For the post-abortive, Mother’s Day is bittersweet, if sweet at all. Some of us don’t want to be recognized on Mother’s Day, even if we’ve had children after abortion. It’s a hard thing to look at your born children knowing they have a sibling in Heaven. What do we tell them, how can we tell them they were all wanted by ME, but not by THEM?

 KEEPLIFELEGALTHEM: If you listen to the abortion industry, they equal abortion TO pregnancy. Whether you know it or not, every woman that has ever been pregnant has been coerced to abort simply by what the mainstream media and our government spews. Every unborn baby has a price on his/her head…depending on how far into the pregnancy they are. Instead of Congratulations, it’s ‘Are you going to keep IT’?

KEEPLIFELEGALAbortion is ugly, abortion is evil, abortion is killing our children. Today in Ohio, 72 unborn babies died an abortion death. In the United States, 4000 will be aborted. Abortion is making America childless and motherless.

And even so, we rejoice! I am SO thankful to the moms that chose life! I am proud of their wherewithal and tenacity to have their children, regardless of their circumstances, while everyone close to them says to abort. This is a hard world we live in, but even worse for the unborn who are unplanned.

This Mother’s Day, remember that your mother chose life; and know that God loves you more than anyone else ever can. He heals, He restores:

I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.” Jeremiah 29:14

Happy Mother’s Day.

UPDATE: REAL Battle of New Orleans – PLANNED PARENTHOOD TO BUILD REGIONAL ABORTION FACILITY

CONTRACTOR UPDATE: [5-7-14]“We received an awesome praise report this week! A company (subcontractor) that was working on the foundation of the new PP in New Orleans has completely pulled out of the project!  One of the workers for this company was a Christian, and while on the job, found out that he was working on the foundation for an abortion clinic.  My friend received a prayer request for this man, as he was distraught over what his company was building.  God supernaturally moved on the heart of the subcontractor, a Hindu, and he pulled his whole company off of the project (PP). ” h/t Elijah Ministries.

WOW!!! Now that’s a great big PRAISE THE LORD! God is changing hearts and minds about the abomination called abortion AND Planned Parenthood in New Orleans! These victories are because a diligent group of prolifers have purposed New Orleans in their hearts to save the unborn and to set the sinner FREE! They recognize that abortion is a SIN problem and a GOSPEL problem; pre-abortive women and men that hear the Gospel will reject abortion and accept Jesus Christ! Even the workers and contractors are pricked in their heart and have left the project or not take the job at all.

Abortion is a horrific evil that stains the great city of New Orleans! Be a part of the victory; please lay hands on this place on Claiborne Avenue and pray!

Thanks [rev katherine]

____________________________________________________________________

[5-6-14] Those of you that follow this ministry knows that I was in New Orleans for the NOLA Needs Peace Press Rally last year. KEEPLIFELEGALWe had many reasons to go to New Orleans, but the foremost reason is the Vision God gave me in 2009 regarding New Orleans associated with this ministry AND we have four grandchildren there, three are women-to-be.

When I was there last May, the ceremonial ground-breaking took place at a unitarian church close to the proposed site. While most Christians KNOW that the unitarian church is a cult, a lot of people will see this ‘ground breaking’ to be a ground breaking between the Church and abortion. This cannot be tolerated: the Church, parachurches, ministries, and Christians need to show up to let New Orleans and Planned Parenthood know that the execution of unborn Louisianians is UNACCEPTABLE.KEEPLIFELEGAL

The future site of the new Planned Parenthood mega killing center is on Claiborne Avenue in the heart of New Orleans which was by design;  this is not incidental. This on a very well planned and convenient bus line that brings women in from all over the city. It is no mistake that New Orleans was chosen because of the close proximity of Mississippi which is nearly abortion facility free. This is marketing strategy to make money, not help women.

“[Archbishop] Aymond said the Archdiocese will boycott any person or business who plays a role in helping the Planned Parenthood facility to become a reality.” Read the Archbishop’s letter here. New Orleans is tight knit and sometimes tight lipped; but a boycott from an Archbishop in a Catholic dominated city can stop a freight train. Let’s pray it does.

KEEPLIFELEGALAt this time, I was told an excavation crew has started which means that concrete contractors will begin. I was also told that three concrete contractors have refused to do this job. And since concrete has a ‘shelf life’, contractors cannot come  from out of state or too far a distance to pour. So far, this is good news!

You can help by clicking here for information to call contractors that are helping to build this killing center. Many other contractors backed out when business leaders spoke up.

Planned Parenthood fails women by purporting cheap birth control and abortion. If there is a ‘war on women’, it’s because Planned Parenthood demonstrates short-cutting who women truly are by making them subservient to the abortion & reproductive agenda.

God will have His way; He is petitioning Christians and non-Christians to heed His Word to stop this whether through prayer or deed or both.

My advice? SHOW UP AND BE HEARD. Planned Parenthood is showing up for Lobby Day 2014 at the Louisiana Capitol in Baton Rouge this Thursday, May 8th. This is YOUR chance to defend the unborn OUTLOUD at the State Capitol right in the face of evil!

It’s What We’re Doing by Staying Silent on Abortion

#Prolife…..for Animals.

During a bit of a fray that I kind of caused, people showed their dislike for God, unborn babies, especially me personally but glorified animals above all. If you have a Facebook account, read the comments here. I guess it’s a good thing they didn’t see my Earth Day post…

KEEPLIFELEGAL

It’s awfully easy to voice your opinion behind a computer rather than showing up. I’d venture to say that these people don’t help animals, either.

Showing up on the sidewalk and the Statehouse is a boots on the ground ministry. I’d bet these same animal people are the ones that scream obscenities and give us the one finger wave ALL THE TIME.

The OUTRAGE of one dog treated badly shows how out of balance we are as a nation, as Christians, as HUMANS. We have given animals and the environment carte blanche while unborn babies die, 4000 per day. Every day, with NO regard.

I mentioned to someone who tried to private message me that most people that ‘own’ animals don’t treat them with the respect and stewardship that God commanded us to use. Animals were to be food, coverings, offerings [not anymore since the New Covenant] and even companions. But are we to lift them higher than humans? The Word of God says:

v27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. v28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:27-28

We read in the news all the time of animals being abandoned and left to die but not one word about all the babies that died that same day. One commentor said that abortion is legal, and it is…but so is euthanizing dogs and cats. Anyone can go into their vet’s office and request their animal be put down for absolutely no reason…just like killing unborn children, women can abort for absolutely NO REASON.

And I NEVER see that in the news. Balance,  people…balance.

BREAKING NEWS: Abortion STILL Murders Unborn Babies.

Yes, it’s true: Abortion has always murdered unborn babies regardless of how the Liberal Agenda and Abortion Agenda try to deny it. ‘Reproductive Freedom’ would lend one to believe that means TO REproduce, not DEproduce. It’s been a lie from the onset, a twist of words to confuse rather than define.

Case in point: The pioneer of the partial-birth abortion, Martin Haskell, retains attorneys Jennifer Branch and Alphonse Gerhardstein, who make their living defending abortionists and call it ‘reproductive freedom’. Read their ‘mission’ statement here.

Ohio Department of Health shut him down, Haskell appealed using Gerhardstein and Branch. And during his appeals process, a stay of execution granted was by Judge Metz, Haskell can ‘do business’, MURDER, until that process concludes.  I have to wonder if everyone else should have the luxury of ‘doing business’ while in appeals, such as serial killers, pedophiles, prostitutes, drug lords, rapists, and thieves? Why shouldn’t they be able to continue to ‘do business’ since the stay essentially says that it isn’t illegal…YET. It’s very apparent that this is political, not rational OR legal.

Interestingly [and ironically?], their baby killing firm says on the website:

“…committed to using the law to help those on the margins of power. Our clients are often the victims of discrimination, mistreatment, or violence by those abusing corporate or government power. We bring lawsuits based on the federal and state constitution, civil rights statutes, state laws, the media and any other appropriate means to meet their needs.”

They do not abide by the law which was passed to shut down abortionists that do not comply WITH the law, thus “abusing corporate or government power. In other words, they believe what they want to believe rather than the truth. Remember, attorneys INTERPRET law in order to sway the mind and decision of the judge to their favor.

The truth is those they claim to protect should be the unborn because they are discriminated against and civil rights taken away because OF abortion law. These attorneys are no different than the attorneys and Supreme Court justices of the Civil War era that fought for the right to own, buy and sell slaves [the right to own private property] rather than freeing human beings created by God who were deemed no better than a farm animal.

We have come so far to make all people equal only to subject our unborn to be lower than a litter of kittens.

Gerhardstein and Branch defends abortionists. They are just as guilty of sin of abortion as the abortionist. The reason why Haskell is still aborting, even though the LAW said to cease and desist, is because of Mr. Gerhardstein and Miss Branch. God will not be mocked [Gal 6:7] and will stop this horrific evil of defending the murderers.

Romans 1:28-32 says, v32“….who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”

 For as angering as this is, and it should anger you, we need to remember that it is their own anger against God that continues to fight for a baby killer. Pray that the scales would fall from their eyes, just like Christ did for a murder named Saul [Acts 9:1-18] and be a voice for the voiceless:

“Open your mouth for the speechless, in the cause of all who are appointed to die.” Proverbs 31:8
