10 things YOU can do to support LIFE!

A Pastor friend of mine asked, “What can people do that can’t or won’t go to the sidewalk but has burden for the unborn?” While everyone is welcome on the sidewalk, some people can’t come. Regardless of the reason why you cannot come to the sidewalk, there are things you can do to help:

  1. Support your local prolifers. You pass them all the time on your way to work or the grocery store. They stand in pouring rain, deal with excruciating heat, and the crippling cold of winter. You would be surprised how far a kind word goes. Feel free to wave, too!
  2. Volunteer at your local pregnancy center. You have no idea how much your life skills can help young, scared pregnant women. And sometimes these centers could use your extra time to sort through donated clothes and baby items.
  3. Remember to vote PROLIFE. We need prolife leaders; Judges, Mayors, Council people, Representatives, Senators, etc. Never should a person hold office that does not believe in representing ALL lives, not just the born ones. Call and email your representative often! After all, they work for YOU and their unborn future voters!
  4. Give and volunteer at your local Prolife Committees, Right to Life, and PAC’s. They help to provide for moms and families, promote prolife lawmakers, and maintain a life-minded community.
  5. Church and Ministries. If your church does not have a prolife ministry or outreach, find out why and perhaps start one!
  6. Your Family. If you are a parent, raise your children to be a great mom or dad, a best friend, and a Godly husband or wife. If we can teach our kids that they are valuable, they will know their own children, planned or unplanned, are just as valuable.
  7. Participate in local outreaches. In many communities, you’ll find a 40 Days for Life group, prayer meetings, and fundraisers that could use your help.
  8. Help a mom. Do you know anyone that could use a babysitter once a week or a ride to work? Maybe someone to talk to? We all do! A little help to them goes a very long way, and a shoulder to lean on is like gold.
  9. Donate, donate, donate. Your kids or grandkids outgrown things are very valuable to a mom that can’t afford to buy those things. And DIAPERS! A big bag of diapers donated to your local outreach is a huge blessing. And your TIME is invaluable!
  10. PRAY. And pray some more! Post-abortive women and moms that are in the valley of decision need your prayerful support and lots and LOTS of Jesus. Please remember them in your prayer time!

Aborted Baby Parts are BIG BUSINESS for #PlannedParenthood, Take 5

The largest abortion facility in the United States is in Houston, Texas. It is the jewel of Planned Parenthood, the reason Cecile Richards gets out of bed in the morning. And now, her bright jewel has been shown to the world as a dirty, cloudy rhinestone with  the newest video from Center for Medical Progress released today.

Nothing to see here, says the Pink Giant.

KEEPLIFELEGAL
Posted on July 29th, outed by Abby Johnson and Carol Everett on July 31st at the Texas Senate.

Awkward, I’d say, since on July 31 two former Texan abortion workers just testified that Planned Parenthood DOES in fact SELL aborted children for profit before this latest video. It’s quite funny and a bit awful hearing liberals say that ‘Planned Parenthood said it’s fake/lies/etc’ after they watch the horrible truth on a 40″ television. They believe the big pink giKEEPLIFELEGALant, not the rock solid truth.

After 4 videos, after all of the debate back and forth, AFTER hardened hearts saw abortion for it is, STILL the United States Senate chose for all of us to continue to fund the abortion giant. Even the out loud horror that Planned Parenthood does with the mangled dead bodies of aborted children still cannot stir the evil in the hearts of Senators that were elected to represent & protect them.

And now this fifth video, the most vile of the lot, with more to come. We are not surprised by this – but it does give us focus to do more to topple this ugly pink giant of Big Abortion.

We are focused – and we have God. #WeWin.

Yes, I #SayHerName. Every. Single. Day.

NARAL in Ohio has jumped on a campaign called ‪#‎SayHerName, regarding Sandra Bland who committed suicide in police custody: “Today I stand in solidarity with our sisters and brothers who cannot tell their stories. I stand with those who feel so targeted that they started the #‎IfIDieInPoliceCustody campaign. I hear their voices, I hear their pain, I #SayHerName.” Oh, really. Or should I say NOT really.

KEEPLIFELEGALWomen who have died from botch abortion are faceless and nameless to Big Abortion. They are collateral damage, taking one for the team. There is no parade, there is no ‘die-in’, no notoriety from the White House. But in Ohio as recently as March of  2014, a young woman died from a heart attack as a result of her abortion. I SAY HER NAMELakisha Wilson. Lakisha cannot tell her story, she was targeted by Big Abortion, her pain and voice will never be heard. But I SAY HER NAME.

Obviously, the hypocrisy is oozing with lies and proabort rhetoric. NARAL advocates with Planned Parenthood who have been targeting blacks and other minorities since 1921 and calls it CHOICE.

NARAL stands with those that can’t tell their stories? NO! Dedicated prolifers and sidewalk advocates HEAR the cries and act to stop the slaughter, over 3500 per day across the United States! TARGETED? The unborn are targeted by Big Abortion and the federal government EVERY SINGLE DAY, and now for their livers, hearts, brains, etc, FOR PROFIT. An unborn child dies from abortion EVERY 25 SECONDS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. What is their story? Who is their voice and hears their pain?

Every so-called ‘blob of tissue’ has a name, a plan, and a voice known by their post-abortive mother and GOD. They are NOT unnoticed, they do NOT die in vain, but every single one of those precious souls were targeted to fill the pockets of every abortionist with MONEY.

So, #SayHerName? Her name is EVA.  In testimonies and on the sidewalk she is known, her story is told every day, her voice is heard, her pain is known, and did NOT die in vain.

Yes, I SAY HER NAME. And her name is EVA.

Today on this side of the sidewalk.

I had the privilege to witness to a very young woman at the abortion facility this week. In Ohio, there is a 24 hour rule. This very young woman rode her bike to the facility for her first appointment for so-called ‘counseling’. Well, that’s what proaborts call it, anyway. I was asked by our anchor counselor to talk to this girl about my abortion. And I did.

I did not tell her a story of monumental proportions, I did not tell her about the pain and agony. But what I did share with her is the ‘choice’ process.

Ah, the process. Yes. I remember it all too well. Choice is a very cruel thing because everyone in the WORLD believes their choice is just their own. Not one choice for anything is ever just your own. Even what we eat is a choice that is made from what we see on television, read on the internet, or advice from friends.

The abortion choice is not one bit different. Women allow everyone to give them ‘advice’, they read prochoice propaganda on the internet, believe the modern feminist lie, allows their family to bully them, on and on and on. There is seemingly no end to everyone else having an opinion of your unplanned pregnancy other than to kill it.

I looked at this very young woman in the eye and gently reminded her that she and her baby are not second best to anyone. God loves her and her child, He has NEVER looked at her as second best, but as a child of God. God has a plan for her and her baby, a plan known before the very foundations of the world. She was leaning on the side of life but has been bullied by her peers and family to abort a child that is not theirs.

I reminded her that she has to live with the loss and grief forever, everyone else who coerced her will never live with one second of regret or responsibility. God sees this a bit differently, He sees the hands that provided this abomination and knows who is truly responsible: “…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”, Romans 1:32.

I don’t know if she had the abortion. I have no idea what her plans are. But on this side of the sidewalk, we have truth and real options. I sincerely hope she found the peace and love she was looking for that day, that her child should not have to be martyred for her or her family, and the unending love of a Savior Who died for her – and her unborn child. His is a love without end.

Debate Analysis: Gregg Cunningham vs. T. Russell Hunter on “Pro-Life Incrementalism vs. Abolitionist Immediatism”

katherinemarple:

Excellent analysis. This constant fight against each other has to stop; prolifers have been on the front lines for over 40 years and will be until Roe is repealed. Anyone who is a shamer of prolifers who daily deal with the heat, rain, snow, and abuse on the sidewalk should look inward to find out why their need to bully is more prevalent and important than saving lives, even if it’s just one at a time, whether at the statehouse or a common sidewalk. We also have to remember to make abortion UNTHINKABLE, not just illegal. To change the heart of proaborts, pre-abortive women and men takes patience and love and TRUTH, consistently. ~ KeepLifeLegal

I recently took the time to watch through a debate on pro-life method between Gregg Cunningham and T. Russell Hunter. I summarized the debate here, along with a brief introduction of what was seen to be at issue. Essentially, Cunningham endorses the position that we should pass laws to limit abortion as much as possible now while working towards the ultimate goal of ending all abortion, whereas Hunter argues that we must work only for legislation that will “abolish” all abortions now.

Cutting Off Branches vs. Save Babies Now?

T. Russell Hunter continually made the same error: reducing everything down to an either-or when it could just as easily be both-and. His analogy of the tree was used throughout the talk. Abortion is the tree, he argued, and we must cut the tree down rather than…

Mother’s Day Week

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.

The Playground of Her Soul | Story of Jane Roe

“On March 17, 1970, I signed the affadavit that brought the holocaust of abortion into America,” McCorvey told AFA Journal. “And I thought I was doing something right; I thought I was doing something good, and I was wrong.”  But before understanding her mistake years later, McCorvey realized Weddington and Coffee wanted her signature more than they wanted to help her.

“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

AFTER ADOPTION: Your Sacrifice is Their Forever.

Every child saved from abortion has approximately 35 couples waiting YEARS to adopt. YEARS. On the sidewalk, we recently knew of a woman considering adoption and in under 60 seconds we personally knew of 5 families that would adopt, no questions asked of the baby’s circumstances, race, health, etc. While adoption is the perfect solution, it doesn’t go without the sacrifice.

And there is the other side of adoption. A good friend asked :

“Can you have your church pray for my best friend . She gave her daughter up for adoption today and I don’t think it has fully hit her yet. I know she is making a very selfless decision and it really is for the best but I also know her heart is breaking right now. I just feel if a lot of people pray for her maybe it will help her heart heal faster.”

First, I am honored to have someone trust me enough to help her friend with such a hard thing. Second, I am impressed with her friend’s ability to be so selfless in such a selfish world. Third, I do not believe for one minute that her friend’s baby was unwanted, just unplanned. Fourth, prayer changes things and heals the brokenhearted. And fifth, I am thanking God for her!

God heals, God restores, God heals the brokenhearted:

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name.
Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.” Psalms 147:3-5

When we are on the sidewalk, most of the moms will not choose life long enough to give their unwanted/unplanned child a chance with a family who has been waiting a very long time to be parents. We already know that most women did not want to abort at all but chose to because their dire circumstances coerced them into an abortion decision rather than life with a family ready to care for him/her.

God says there are NO unwanted children: Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations,” [Jer 1:5].

There are no orphans of God.

FEMINISM: The Protected Class of ‘Lady Parts’?

I was browsing blogs on WP on feminism and came across an interesting view: IF women in the US really believe their ‘rights’ have yet to be established, then perhaps they need to take a look at women in Africa or the Middle East. While the ignorance of women in this country actually have them fighting for their ‘lady parts’ to be a ‘protected class’, women elsewhere aren’t allowed to drive or shop alone or vote or have an opinion or be within a million years of being equal to their own sons or husband. Women in other countries fear DEATH while women in the US whine.

True feminism isn’t about usurping authority over all mankind, it’s about being a WOMAN, the woman that God meant for us to be. Women are already equal to men, so stop the whining. It’s really pathetic to see ‘women’ pushing for their uterus to have its own vote. Are your lady parts ‘separate but equal’ to you? Think about that…are your ‘reproductive rights’ beginning to usurp YOUR autonomy and your own Constitutional rights?

Women sell themselves to an agenda that says they can murder their own future. Abortion rights do not make a woman mightier, abortion makes them cowards. The term ‘reproductive rights’ is like saying jumbo shrimp. If you’re not ‘reproductive’, then why does your uterus need ‘rights’?

Oh, and by the way, half of all abortions murders an unborn woman. No flies on you, eh?
