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.

WOMEN & CHILDREN IN CRISIS: Where is the Abortion Cartel?

Another child was murdered by a parent, this time an infant was decapitated. And while you may spew  “she should have aborted the kid and this wouldn’t have happened”, abortion would not have cured this woman’s mental illness to have done such a horrific and evil thing to her own  three month old baby. Read the story here.

Women in crisis are overlooked every day. Women are being beaten, trafficked, prostituted, and murdered. The woman who decapitated this tiny baby is just the tip of the iceberg. If there is a war on women, it because the Abortion Cartel – who claims to be 100% pro-woman – pushes abortion, not counseling or shelter.

But let’s look at this story with both eyes:

  • Where was Planned Parenthood? Where was NARAL? Where was NOW? Certainly they claim to help women and girls in crisis! I mean, what about all that wonderful counseling they say they ‘provide’? They are only there for women to hand out condoms, contraceptives and abortion. Planned Parenthood, NARAL, NOW and the Abortion Cartel DO NOT support the whole woman, just her ‘lady parts’. The Abortion Cartel has once again FAILED WOMEN. Where is the outcry?
  • Many abortion procedures do decapitate the baby’s head ON PURPOSE. Where is the outcry for the thousands of babies that will die a painful and horrific death of disarticulation, decapitation and dismemberment….TODAY?

KEEPLIFELEGALI asked a young proabort woman, who was protesting the protesters, a question regarding this very subject. I said, “If she aborts, will you still be there when she still can’t pay her rent or keep her electric on? Give her a ride to the store for food? Help her find a job, or a better one? Be there when her boyfriend beats her again? WHERE WILL YOU BE?”

Crickets. She had no answer because she didn’t think this through. Proaborts and prochoicers really believe that abortion and contraception fixes everything for women. And interestingly, proaborts say prolifers are just pro-birthers, never around when it gets tough. On our sidewalk, we offer everything that ANY mom needs to help with her pregnancy and after her baby is born, adoption or post-abortive counseling.

Prolifers not supporting women in crisis is the BIG FAT LIE of the Abortion Cartel…because women in crisis need real women to give her shelter in a storm she can’t get out of. And if they did, perhaps that 3 month old baby would be alive today.

New Alarming Research About Children | National Center on Sexual Exploitation

Article by Dawn Hawkins | Director of National Center on Sexual Exploitation

March 13, 2015

new research study from The Internet Watch Foundation and Microsoft was released this week showing that there is a rise in youth-produced child pornography.

The study established that 85.9 percent of content depicting children aged 15 or younger was created using a webcam and 93 percent featured girls. While much of the content appeared to be knowingly created for websites, the study indicates that 100 percent of the content was shared to third party websites, which cannot be traced. The researchers noted a specific concern that the young people featured, “took no steps to conceal their identity or location, even in many cases using their real names.” The study also found that 667 of the images and videos evaluated featured children 15 years and younger, and of this group, 286 were 10 years or younger. The researchers said their report confirms an alarming trend of young children producing and distributing explicit content online.

Children producing and distributing child pornography is a profoundly disturbing trend. We are in the midst of a public health crisis on pornography. Every public official from the president on down, public health advocates, social leaders, as well as every parent must work to solve this crisis. We know that the long-term consequences to our children involved with pornography are monumental and can include problematic, even criminal sexual behaviors, and a host of anti-social activities.

The sexualized culture created by adults has primed children to become exploited by pornography. The flood of unchecked TV indecency, movies such as “Fifty Shades of Grey,” and sexually exploitative magazines such as Cosmopolitan, groom children for the pornified culture that awaits and preys on them.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:

Talk to your kids! Even if you think your child or the children in your life are “responsible” and “know-better,” make sure that you have regular discussions with them about healthy sexuality and about the real consequences of these actions. Create a place where they feel comfortable talking to you about these issues and come to you for information, rather than to Google or to their friends.

We have a list of resources for parents right here. Two that I recommend right now are:

#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.

REAL BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS, BREAKING: Concrete Contractor Identified

It’s been very difficult for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast [PPFA] to build their proposed site built on South Claiborne Ave in the very heart of New Orleans. Planned Parenthood stooped so low that it used its racist roots to go for minority businesses to build their killing center AFTER no one would.

Planned Parenthood was supposed to be open for business/baby killing last year and because of the non-stop, diligent work from Louisiana Coalition for Life and the Archdiocese of New Orleans, the photo below shows the ‘progress’ since May of 2013. Read more of the history of Planned Parenthood in Louisiana here. Boycotting WORKS.

It was also noticed by KeepLifeLegal that during this tumultuous time in New Orleans history, THERE IS NO 40 DAYS FOR LIFE PRESENCE. How does this happen that the local 40 Days for Life has considered this campaign to be unimportant?

KeepLifeLegal is a supporter of 40 Days for LIFE. Here, we are appalled at the local level inactivity in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

Planned Parenthood of New Orleans on South Claiborne Ave
Planned Parenthood of New Orleans on South Claiborne Ave

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Last week we wrote (see urgent update below) about the resumption of work at the Planned Parenthood proposed site in New Orleans.  Since then, we have confirmed that the company providing the concrete is Absolute Concrete Services.  Planned Parenthood has previously indicated that it was their inability to obtain concrete that was holding up the project.  Businesses doing business with Planned Parenthood say it is all about the money.  However, as one local pastor said, “you can’t wash the blood off of the money you receive from Planned Parenthood”.  Please contact Absolute Concrete Services and the other businesses helping to build this child killing center and help them understand this simple truth.

Also, The New Orleans Advocate published a story about the work going on at the Claiborne Avenue site and the effectiveness of pro-lifers.  God bless everyone who has joined us in this effort.

This is an urgent update.  Planned Parenthood and their General Contractor, Barre McNeely, have resumed work on the Claiborne Avenue abortion facility in New Orleans.  Several businesses have been identified as participating in this project and we urge you to contact businesses on the list of those helping to build the Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

Share with these businesses in a respectful and polite way that this is an abortion facility.  Please be sure that you are calling and writing from the most current list and please share this information with friends and family, including social media.  If you receive a response from any of the businesses, we would appreciate it if you would share that with us on the Contact Us page of the website.

For over eight months, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility site at 4636 S. Claiborne Avenue had remained quiet.  The only thing growing was weeds.   In January of this year, the Louisiana Department of Health denied Planned Parenthood a “Certificate of Need”.  This is a legally required permit issued by the state upon certification that a medical or abortion facility is actually needed in the geographical area.  Planned Parenthood maintained that New Orleans should have 2,844 more abortions than are currently performed in the New Orleans area and they (Planned Parenthood) want to sell those additional abortions.  The State of Louisiana has ruled that there are already enough facilities providing abortions in Greater New Orleans.  Planned Parenthood is appealing the state’s decision.

Without this “Certificate of Need”, Planned Parenthood cannot legally operate an abortion facility in New Orleans.  However, this week, they began working at the site again and apparently are trying to repair the foundation and preparing to pour concrete, perhaps as early as next week.  That is why it is urgent that we reach out to those now working at the site.

#Prolife #Arkansas tells #40DaysForLife vigil they can’t have signs?

KEEPLIFELEGALI see…new rules? According to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, after 8 successful, peaceful vigils since 2011, 40 Days for Life can’t have signs? And even if this was a statute for some years, why now? Even at Planned Parenthood, where 40 Days Fayetteville holds their vigil, said “the issue was between the state and the protesters, and that her group had no comment.”

The Highway Department has received a faxed letter of protest from a legal firm representing the group, a spokesman confirmed Thursday. The letter alleges that the state is violating the group’s First Amendment rights to free speech.

A letter from the Thomas More Society, who represents the national40 Days for LIFE 40 Days vigils, said: “We respectfully maintain that her directives — attempting to prohibit First Amendment activity on public property, including sidewalks along a state highway — were overly broad and, if enforced, they would be a clear violation of our client’s First Amendment rights.”

40 Days for Life in Fayetteville is the only 40 Days vigil in Arkansas and has seen “better-than-usual participation”, according to Sheena Archambault, coordinator of the 40 Days for Life Campaign.  Planned Parenthood of Fayetteville does offer abortion ‘services’ and contraception [abortifacients].

KEEPLIFELEGALWhat is interesting is that Planned Parenthood ‘has no opinion’ and seem undeterred while the state of Arkansas is pushing an unconstitutional ordinance on people who are peacefully protesting. Does anyone really know WHO made the complaint about the signs? Planned Parenthood of Fayetteville may not have a public ‘opinion’, but PP has never been….truthful.

Arkansas calls itself a “prolife state” but now shows that they may not be as prolife as the new Governor, Asa Hutchinson, purports to be.

Governor Hutchinson, what is your opinion of this obvious unconstitutional sudden ‘ban’ on signs…or is this a targeted attempt to keep the reality of unborn child killing a secret in The Natural State?

REAL BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS: Urgent Update!

Boycotting works, along with prayer and persistence. This regional killing center is strategically centered in the heart of New Orleans to draw ‘customers’ from ‘local’ abortion facilities and Mississippi, which has just one abortion facility located in Jackson. This is a business move, not a bloated mission to serve the underserved. This will be a multi-million dollar BABY KILLING BUSINESS.

Don’t believe the Planned Parenthood LIE: There are HUNDREDS of health centers and life-minded family centers who serve women and their families all over the state of Louisiana.

NO ONE NEEDS ABORTION. EVER.

UPDATE [2/27/2015]: From Louisiana Coalition for LIFE regarding the proposed Planned Parenthood mega-killing center in the heart of New Orleans:

“This is an urgent update.  Planned Parenthood and their General Contractor, Barre McNeely, have resumed work on the Claiborne Avenue abortion facility in New Orleans.  Several businesses have been identified as participating in this project and we urge you to contacbusinesses on the list of those helping to build the Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

“For over eight months, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility site at 4636 S. Claiborne Avenue had remained quiet.  The only thing growing was weeds.   In January of this year, the Louisiana Department of Health denied Planned Parenthood a “Certificate of Need”.  This is a legally required permit issued by the state upon certification that a medical or abortion facility is actually needed in the geographical area.  Planned Parenthood maintained that New Orleans should have 2,844 more abortions than are currently performed in the New Orleans area and they (Planned Parenthood) want to sell those additional abortions.  The State of Louisiana has ruled that there are already enough facilities providing abortions in Greater New Orleans.  Planned Parenthood is appealing the state’s decision.

#Pittsburgh PUBLIC SCHOOLS allow #PlannedParenthood to teach sex ed

FACT: Did you know that the National Education Associationthe largest labor union in the U.S. & HATES homeschooling, is in bed with Planned Parenthood, the Walmart of abortion? No? Then I would encourage you to google “NEA and Planned Parenthood” and to click here to see what they believe and who they give money to.

NOW you shouldn’t be so shocked by their ‘marriage’, but you should be INCENSED.

Parents absentmindedly send their children to schools full of women and men who are indoctrinating them with the Gay Agenda, Islam, all Liberal Agenda, reproductive freedom [for students],  keeping parents out of an abortion decision, EMILY’s List, NOW, etc.

A teacher in Lawrence County [PA] writes, “If my dues to the union at the local, state and national level do not fund political activities, then why is the NEA reporting that these activities are funded? If one follows the money, part of my pay funds abortions. As an adoptive parent, I should not be required to give one fraction of one cent towards abortion and will not be forced into doing so.” Read the rest here.

And now Pittsburgh PUBLIC SCHOOLS allows your kids to be indoctrinated with Planned Parenthood with their sex ed program. Click here to see PP sex ed; you will be shocked at what they teach CHILDREN…without apology, usurping a parent’s rights and decisions.

Two questions: Where are the parents AND there was only ONE no vote:

“The 6-1 vote came after board member Mark Brentley Sr. raised opposition, criticizing the history of Planned Parenthood, questioning what its role would be in the schools and saying it would put students at risk. Only Mr. Brentley voted in opposition. Members Terry Kennedy and Sherry Hazuda were absent.”

Oh, and there’s this: Taxpayers get to pay for it…not just Pittsburgh taxpayers, but YOU AND ME:

“Ms. Allen said Planned Parenthood is seeking a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for the program. It is expected the organization will know whether it got the grant in July.”

In the video below, Judy Bruns tells her personal story of how NEA uses your parental rights to further the Liberal Agenda, fund abortion, the LGBT AND gave over 50 MILLION to Obama’s campaign:

#TBT: Protesters as Terrorists goes JUST ONE WAY.

Although this information came from a 2009 article and report, the impression that conservative protesters are terrorists has not changed:

Just weeks after a scandal erupted over a Department of Homeland Security report that described as “right-wing extremists” those who oppose abortion and support secure national borders, another report is revealing that the Department of Defense is teaching that protesters are “low-level terrorists.”

Do you have the audacity to:

  • Oppose abortion
  • Oppose same-sex marriage
  • Oppose restrictions on firearms
  • Oppose lax immigration laws
  • Oppose the policies of President Obama regarding immigration, citizenship, and the expansion of social programs
  • Oppose continuation of free trade agreements
  • Are suspect of foreign regimes
  • Fear Communist regimes
  • Oppose a “one world” government
  • Bemoan the decline of U.S. stature in the world
  • Are upset with loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India, and more

Looks like this so-called terrorism only goes ONE WAY? 

When we attended the protest at the Texas state capital July of 2013, it was the ultra liberal protesters clad in orange that brought and/or threatened to bring used tampons, excrement and bottles of urine. I’m sure they forgot how they literally spit on prolifers and taunted? OH….did I mention that many of them were PAID to be there? Personally, I brought a big hat to keep the sun off my face. How’s that for extreme?

#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.”
