Who is Violating the Right to Life & Liberty for ALL Ohioans? You Guessed It, The Real War On Women.

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.

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: Who Pays for the Crime of the Rapist?

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.

#HeartbeatBill Testimony: Abortion Creates a Generational Culture of Death

Yesterday, we had the privilege to testify for Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill. We heard from many, but what was incredible was the outcry from the ‘exceptions’ – children conceived from rape, mothers of children conceived in rape, children with abnormalities and disabilities, etc. At this hearing, the committee heard LOUDLY that EVERY life matters, no matter what. This was my fourth time testifying for this bill and we are looking forward to this bill passing!

NARAL and Planned Parenthood was ‘live tweeting’ the entire hearing. Of course it was nothing but bullying prolifers behind their back. I suppose schoolyard bullies trade in rulers and pencils for smartphones and tablets to continue their agenda.

The Holy Spirit had a fierce grip on this hearing, opening prayer in Jesus name, no taunting [that’s a first], no disruptions. Everyone heard about a saving Jesus, a love abounding.

Below is KeepLifeLegal’s testimony, click here to read the others [choose March 10, HB69].

Heartbeat Bill [HB69] Testimony – Community and Family Advancement Committee – March 10, 2015:

Thank you Mr. Chairman, and members of the committee, for this unique opportunity and honor to speak on behalf of post-abortive women and their own post-abortive children. It is a privilege to represent the millions and millions of women that have and continue to be victimized by this slaughter of human life called abortion.

This is a call to action, because abortion not only kills an unborn child – but also creates a generational culture of death within families and communities at large.

I am a wife, a mom, a grandmom, an Ordained minister of the Gospel, Advocate and Activist – but I am also a sibling to an aborted child, an aunt to an aborted child, a cousin to an aborted child, I am also Post Abortive and a grandmother to my own aborted grandchild. Every one of these children deserved and had a right to life, a right to have their own family and a right to serve their communities.

Abortion has been a part of my life since 1978 when my own mother, someone I trusted more than anyone in the world, forced me to abort my unborn child when I was just 17 years old. However, if there had been a Heartbeat LAW, my child would have survived. Conversely, I would also have my brother or sister, my cousin, my niece or nephew, and my grandchild today. FIVE members of my own family did not have a choice or a voice or a law that would have protected them from being aborted.

Because there was no Heartbeat LAW, abortion and loss will always be a part of my life and quite possibly a part of yours. Abortion has no respect for anyone; this tragedy can strike anyone and any family because there is no Heartbeat LAW to provide the proof of unborn life in the womb. A beating heart proves that a separate person who is within their mother’s womb is alive, not a mass of indeterminate cells. Abortion has made a culture of death throughout at least 3 generations of my family and my story is not unique.

If my mother heard the heartbeat of her unborn grandchild, she MAY have relented and allowed me to have my baby – or not. However, if there had been a Heartbeat LAW there would have been no questions; my baby would be alive today – perhaps a woman married with children of her own, part of our community. I will never know that because there was no Heartbeat Bill or Heartbeat law. When the Heartbeat Bill passes, thousands upon thousands of children will not know abortion death or the culture it produces.

I ask you to help save the lives of unborn Ohioans, which will preserve and protect generations to come. 

I thank the committee for allowing me to testify this day to save the lives of unborn Ohioans and to give real hope to their mothers and family.

#BREAKINGNEWS: #Prolife Movement Mourns the Loss of Dr. John Willke

FROM RIGHT TO LIFE OF GREATER CINCINNATI: Sad News Today: Pro-Life Movement Mourns Loss of Legendary Leader Dr. John Willke.

We were personally blessed by Dr. Willke during Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill committee meetings; I had the distinct honor to hear Dr. Willke testify for the unborn. Thank you, Dr. Willke, we are all blessed to know you. I am so pleased that the first Saints you will meet in Heaven are the lives you have saved from abortion. See Dr. Willke’s testimony in the video below.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, February 21, 2015 (Cincinnati, OH): The pro-life movement worldwide mourns the loss of Dr. John Willke, who slipped quietly from this earth Friday evening, February 20, 2015, just two months short of his 90th birthday. His beloved wife, Barbara, preceded him in death April 2013—a soul mate he missed deeply.

“Dr. Willke was the leading statesman addressing the second civil rights struggle of our nation,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “He met with presidents and popes and crossed the globe, but his passion was always to ensure the right to life for helpless unborn children and other vulnerable people.”

Dr. Willke was a physician, author, lecturer, TV and radio personality, and expert in human sexuality. Until recently, he served as president of the national Life Issues Institute, headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. He served for ten years as president of the U.S. National Right to Life Committee, and helped found the International Right to Life Federation.

His daily 5-minute radio program was carried on almost 400 radio stations for 18 years. His one-minute comments, Life Jewels, were broadcast in English and Spanish on over 1,000 stations reaching the U.S., Australia, South Africa, and Brazil.

Dr. and Mrs. Willke co-authored Abortion, Questions and Answers: Why Can’t We Love Them Both; Handbook on Abortion; Abortion and Slavery, History Repeats; Assisted Suicide & Euthanasia, Past & Present; plus six other books on human sexuality, videos, brochures, and more. Their works have been translated in over 30 languages worldwide.

Just last month, Dr. and Mrs. Willke’s autobiography Abortion and the Pro-Life Movement: An Inside View was released, chronicling the life of this legendary couple. They were devoted to their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, and in all things strengthened by their strong Catholic faith.

Amidst these many efforts, Dr. and Mrs. Willke also founded Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati in the early 1970s and shared chairmanship for several years. They also founded the state organization, Ohio Right to Life, in Cincinnati at that time, then moved it to Columbus a few years later.

“Dr. Willke was a true giant in the pro-life movement, yet always warm, always humble, a mentor and a friend,” said Jack Hart, President, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “We can never replace him. We can only do our best to carry on his legacy, and redouble our efforts to create the culture of life that he worked so hard and so well to bring about.”

ANSWER: Cronyism, Elitism, Division – QUESTION: How to get a #prolife law passed in #Ohio.

The Heartbeat Bill has been introduced again at the Ohio Statehouse for the THIRD time…why so many times? Because legislators who PROMISED to get this bill through has been shaken down by Ohio Right to Life….for the THIRD time.

The Coward-in-Chief Senate President Keith Faber said today“What you’re doing is saying you’re risking throwing out all of the things we’ve done to save babies in exchange for having a political argument.” Sounds awfully prideful? Faber had promised to back this Bill and turned; he ultimately lied to every person who voted for him. KEEPLIFELEGAL

Faber also accused Rep. Matt Lynch of wanting to kill babies because he introduced the Bill in lameduck: “I don’t know why Rep. Lynch would want to kill babies,” he said. “The heartbeat bill could lead to striking down laws that were passed and upheld. Rep. Lynch would have to answer that question himself. Certainly we think the heartbeat bill moves the cause of anti-abortion back.”

Wouldn’t you think that Ohio Right to Life would be square behind a bill that would save so many babies? Then, what’s their problem? Easily, if there isn’t so much to do  then they stand not to get the donations they need to stay ‘alive'; their political pull and necessary legislators would all go away. ORTL bellows about the constitutionality of the Heartbeat Bill but it’s ORTL who says they want to overturn Roe which seems awfully contradictory. ORTL makes absolutely no sense and has since caused great division, cronyism and elitism in the prolife community in Ohio. ORTL has proven they are not prolife.

KEEPLIFELEGAL
Three tubs of aborted babies, now medical ‘waste’.

And in the meantime,  Ohio Right to Life mafia has been picking off our so-called prolife legislators to not back a bill that would save 96% of unborn babies but is behind a 20 week ban that was recently introduced. Do the math: The last report for abortions in Ohio states that 0.7% abortions occurred at 20+ weeks which breaks down to 173 babies died from three to four day late-term abortion procedures in 2013. However, 23,036 babies were aborted before 20+ weeks. SO, a 20 week ban would have saved 173 babies; the Heartbeat Bill would have saved about 22,280 which is SIXTY ONE BABIES PER DAY.

Save 173 or 22,280? “The 20-weeks bill is among the priorities this session for Ohio Right to Life…”. There you go. Ohio Right to Life would rather save 173 babies rather than nearly all of them. That is irresponsible and damnable.

Linda Porter of Faith2ActionTo answer the questions about the Bill, Janet Porter released this today:

“While claiming to be pro-life, Ohio Senate President Keith Faber is using his powerful position to speak out against the most protective pro-life bill in the Ohio House of Representatives. The Heartbeat Bill, H.B. 69, was re-introduced this week in the Ohio House with 50 co-sponsors–enough to pass the bill. Once law, the Heartbeat Bill will protect unborn children whose heartbeats can be heard.

“Senate President Keith Faber claims that passing a bill to protect children could somehow hurt the effort to protect children—it’s absurd.” stated Janet (Folger) Porter, President of Faith2Action, who initiated the Heartbeat Bill.

“What has happened to Senator Faber?” asked Lori Viars of Warren County Right to Life. “Why does he favor the least protection for unborn children when he could be fighting for the most protection? I miss the old Keith Faber—the pro-life conservative that we knew and loved.”

“While a heartbeat is not the beginning of life, it is a universally-accepted indicator of life,” said Porter. “Why would Senator Faber and Republicans in the Senate ignore this indicator of life when it comes to our most vulnerable children?”

“Faber’s claims about the Heartbeat Bill harming other pro-life laws is countered by language in the bill itself,” said Porter. “The Heartbeat Bill expressly states (Section 2919.19, lines 373-374) that it will NOT affect other pro-life laws currently in place.”

“Call Senator Faber at 614-466-7584 and ask him to be consistent: use the same indicator of life for babies that we use for everyone else,” added Porter.

If you have voted for a prolife legislator that is not backing every bit of prolife legislation that crosses their desks, call them, email them. YOU have a right to know why they are NOT doing their job and demand they do what they were elected for.

 

 

Preterm Birth, Infant Mortality & Abortion Link

In Ohio, there has been legislation considered regarding a nearly 8% infant morality rate, the worst in the District of Columbia [11.5%] and Mississippi [10%]; the national rate is 6.6%. Considering the higher concentration of Black Americans in DC and Mississippi, one has to wonder if there isn’t another story here. See the graphic here [Kaiser Foundation].

What does abortion have to do with it?

But this isn’t the only story. Preterm births are on the rise from a conveniently forgotten demographic: Post abortive women. From American Association of Prolife Obstetricians and Gynecologists [AAPOG], Prolife OB/GYNS:

“Induced abortion has a significant association with subsequent premature birth, and particularly “very” premature birth (i.e, before 32 weeks gestation). “Very” premature birth has a significant association with cerebral palsy and other developmental difficulties. Preemies under 32 weeks have a Cerebral Palsy rates 55 times higher that the rates for a term baby.” Read the rest here.

AND:

“Understanding and addressing the risk factors for the preterm birth ‘epidemic’ is crucial because low birth weight (LBW) and preterm birth (PTB) are the most important risk factors for infant mortality or later disabilities, as well as for lower cognitive abilities and greater behavioral problems. In addition to the huge human cost, the economic cost required to properly care for these premature babies is a severe challenge to medical care system.”

The sad truth is that BORN babies are dying and the government sees this as an attempt to expand Medicaid/Obamacare. If women were not aborting their children, then perhaps their ‘wanted’ children would have a better chance at survival.

In Ohio, our so-called ‘prolife’ governor wants to expand Medicaid to deal with preterm/mortality of babies but will not help pass legislation that would have thwarted 95% of abortion deaths THUS making the preterm/mortality rate FALL.

We don’t have an neglect problem, we don’t have an underserved problem…we have an abortion problem. And it’s killing the unborn and born.

 

BREAKING: Gov. Kasich Throws the Unborn Under the Bus…AGAIN.

It’s one thing being denied the ability to do our job, but it’s quite another to have the newly re-elected governor WHO CALLS HIMSELF PROLIFE to throw the unborn under the bus AGAIN. Read the story HERE.

Three tubs of aborted baby remains.
Three tubs of aborted baby remains.

Now, I’m one for getting the best guy or gal in office that calls themselves prolife, after all NO ONE is perfect for the job. And that will upset the personhood people, but the truth is that not one person will govern the people with a firm truly prolife hand; agenda always gets in the way.

Gov. Kasich presented Ohio with someone who would manage the Ohio Department of Health, a man who WAS considered prolife. We believed him – NARAL and Planned Parenthood FOUGHT Richard Hodges appointment. We contacted Mr. Hodges through emails and phone calls to remind him that the LAW states that EVERY abortion facility, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, has to comply with having a transfer agreement to a private hospital. This law was signed by the governor himself, then how did this happen?

Governor John Kasich has aspirations to run for president which why he allowed this to happen. It has been noticed that Kasich will  also allow same-sex marriage to appease the opposite sects of people who did not originally vote for him. The last true conservative that ran and became President was Ronald Reagan…and those days ore OVER. Rather than do the right thing, what Kasich promised, he will bend and cave for his own personal agenda that will – in his own mind – lead him to the White House.

It is the opinion of KeepLifeLegal that IF the Heartbeat Bill has the gas to get past the Ohio Senate that Kasich will not sign it into law. However, that does remain to be seen…but just how far fetched is that? Certainly we haven’t heard a word from Kasich commending Hodges decision to keep the abortion giant Planned Parenthood in business in Cincinnati.

Kasich signed the law restricting abortion facilities from operating if they cannot get actual transfer agreements – the Dayton facility that Martin Haskell owns will probably sue the State of Ohio since he had to close his Sharonville facility due TO the law. Kasich and Hodges both know that Planned Parenthood has the money to fight this; now the precedent has been reset, again.

Currently, at least 65 unborn Ohioans die every day from abortion death because good legislation is denied.

DEAR MR. KASICH: EVERY LIFE HAS VALUE, NOT JUST THE ONES WHO CAN VOTE.

 

BREAKING: Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill Passes Committee

Imagine saving the lives of at least 65 unborn children per day! That’s about a school bus load of children saved from abortion EVERY DAY!

But not everyone feels that way…the opposition believes in a woman’s right to choose but not a  baby’s right to life. I really don’t know how a person gets to that place where you are so superior to believe it is your right to MURDER an innocent baby. Read on:

  • HUH??? “Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance. A few folks have pointed out that our webform to email representatives about the “heartbeat” bill requires selection of a gendered title. While it’s not a feature of our webform we like, we recognize it’s a bit of a slap in the face on a special day of remembrance such as today. Emailing members of Congress requires selecting a title, so the tool forces the choice as well. Please accept our apology and consider two choices because your voice is valued. Option A: use the form and select from the offered titles. Option B, which we really, REALLY prefer: Call your representative on the phone. Tell them your view on the ‘heartbeat’ abortion ban. Thanks for your continued support.”
  • OH WOW: “Do they not realize that a miscarriage is really an abortion?”
  • BUT BABIES FEAR THE REAPER? “Why do the males fear the female so much?”
  • SO ARE PROABORTS: “What a terrifying reality.”
  • REALLY…THEY THINK WOMEN ARE THIS STUPID? “Women will attempt to perform self mutilation or worse if abortion access is denied.”
  • NOPE, BUT ABORTIONISTS WILL: “Ohio House Health Committee passed the Heartless Abortion Ban by an 11-6 party line vote. If this becomes law, it will no doubt result in talented physicians leaving Ohio to practice in other states.”
  • “Rep C Hagan asks Gary Daniels of @acluohio whether he has children. She said she wants to know when they became significant to him?”
  • NO FLIES ON YOU: “Unsafe abortions can kill!” note: ALL ABORTIONS KILL.
  • HUH???? “I have grave concerns that if the Heartbeat Bill were to be passed, it would jeopardize some of the good, pro-life work that we’ve done in the General Assembly,” said Senate President Keith Faber.
  • NO PUN INTENDED? “More committee manipulation by the Repubs to move ill-conceived bills to the floor.”

All comments are from the Columbus Dispatch and Facebook [NARAL, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio].

Anyway…..they should explore the money trail:

costofroevwade

Abortion will continue to kill generations of people AND the contributions they could have made. And we wonder why our economy is so upside down? You can thank your local abortionist.

I  have personally testified for this bill since 2011. I thank God for people like Janet Porter who has led the charge FOR the unborn and I will continue to support her.

PASS THE HEARTBEAT BILL and every other shred of prolife legislation.

The Ghosts of Sidewalk Ministry

Divisiveness is what kills a great outreach. It’s the best excuse that Pastors use to stay away from an uncomfortable ministry at the abortion facilities – AND laziness. So, this prompted me to tell the short story of how this Evangelical Christian was moved to get into Prolife Ministry by Catholics and others.

KEEPLIFELEGAL
PROLIFE WARRIORS

Many so-called prolife ministries want to be so divisive that they step over the dead aborted babies to get to the prolifer that’s ‘doing it wrong’. These people use a Bible with pages missing to further their agenda. This has been ongoing, nothing new…but it definitely needs to stop, particularly when violence erupts from this cult. Read that here.

How did you get into prolife ministry? For me, I had three life changing moments:

  1. I saw a man, alone, carrying a huge crucifix pacing in front of what looked like an office building. I realized it was an abortion facility. I had to face my own abortion, I had to face God and repent, and I finally met that faithful witness years later. [Thanks to Richard Mahoney]
  2. I went to my first 40 Days for Life rally. Bryan Kemper of Stand True [youth director of Priests for Life] was the speaker, I was scared to death to face this publicly, I was asked to join the 40 Days leadership team a year later. [Thanks to the 40 Days team]
  3. I was asked to testify for the Heartbeat Bill. I told my post abortive testimony in both committees at the Ohio Statehouse for the Heartbeat Bill. My story was now part of public record for everyone to hear, no going back. Testifying for this bill catapulted me into full time prolife ministry. [Thanks to Janet Porter and my husband]
PROLIFE WARRIORS
PROLIFE WARRIORS

In these three points there was no mention of a church helping me or the prolife movement in any way. We received some well wishes and monetary support, but no one showed up on the sidewalk more than once. This is when we realized that this prolife ministry is a remnant within the remnant and on our own.

Too many people in the evangelical world rests on their blessed assurance saying that prolife ministry is a ‘catholic thing’, too political and/or controversial. On this side of the pulpit, we call it LAZY and selective.

KEEPLIFELEGALProlife ministry is a GOSPEL thing, it is bringing the message of Jesus Christ to the street and the sidewalk. Pastors need to come out from behind the pulpit and do the work that Jesus did: Taking the message of hope to the lost, the hopeless, and the afflicted TO the street and TO the sidewalk. Evangelicals are called judgmental by many, but it’s the evangelical Pastors who have already judged prolife ministry as an offense to their church. ABORTION IS AN OFFENSE! And Pastors that do nothing offends ME and has deemed unborn life to be not as important as themselves or their coffers.

In the area in which we live and minister, over 800K people and HUNDREDS of churches surround ONE ABORTION FACILITY and still hardly anyone comes while some claim to be prolife. 

A great example: a woman at the Heartbeat Bill Prayer Rally said she is part of a 8000 member mega church in the Columbus area and said to me that they don’t do anything prolife outside of the church property lines, and for that she feels they are lacking. She’s right. And I am the first person that will tell you I appreciate outreaches that supply clothes, formula and diapers…but they hide behind a huge pulpit rather than stepping out to the two abortion facilities within their city limits to spread the GOSPEL which saves LIVES

I am so thankful that God directed me to this ministry which has TOTALLY offended my family – but the Bible says that in these last days this would happen because:

“v48 For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more……v51 Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division. v52 For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three.v 53 Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.” Luke 12:48, 12:51-53

Abortion and prolife ministry is an offense to the Church rather than a ministry opportunity to changes lives.

My dear prolife friends and ministers who continue to be in this fight for LIFE, be ENCOURAGED! We are few in number but great in the eyes of God!

“v19 Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; v20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. v21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21

Being Esther – There are no orphans of God.

Esther was orphaned and adopted by her cousin Mordecai and eventually – through the grace of God – became Queen, a Queen of the greatest empire on Earth at that time. That does not come by accident. She was chosen by God to help her people, and her opposition was great. She knew she could lose her own life but her purpose was greater than her fear of death.

“Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!” Esther 4:16

Because of Queen Esther, the Jewish people were not exterminated. God showed Esther FAVOR through King Ahasuerus and God used the Queen to fulfill the lineage of Jesus Christ. The history of Esther is one of grace and favor, but it does not go without saying that she had a heart for God and a heart for her people.

Watch For Children

There are no orphans of God, we are all accounted for. Jesus said, “But even the hairs of your head are all numbered,” Luke 12:7.

In Prolife Ministry I am Esther – you are Esther. We seek to free the children of Israel – all unborn children – though prayer, supplication and legislation.

“For how can I endure to see the evil that will come to my people? Or how can I endure to see the destruction of my countrymen?” Esther 8:6

We are still trying to save the children of Israel, just like Esther, one unborn child at a time. And just like Haman in the Book of Esther sought to exterminate the Jews, today through the sin of abortion Haman still seeks our children, and is succeeding.

Queen Esther was victorious saving the children of Israel but we are still fighting the fight of abortion trying to save our unborn children today. Women have usurped the authority of God to take command of their bodies:

“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1Corinthians 6:19-20

We are not our own, our bodies are not our own. We are God’s…and so is every unborn child, without exception.

Be Esther and save our children.
