And what a year it has been. The focal point of this Prolife year is most definitely the 2012 Election. We worked hard and out loud for the cause of Christ and the unborn. Even though studies showed we are now a ‘prolife nation’, Americans re-elected the most horrific, evil president of our time. He is personally responsible for AT LEAST 6 MILLION unborn American’s abortion deaths…that we know of. I brought up the truth, not urban legend, of online ‘do it yourself’ medical abortions that can at least double that number. Since Obama rescinded the Mexico City Policy, you can make the number of unborn deaths to top the MULTI-MILLIONS; my estimation is well over 30 MILLION, and I think that is quite conservative. We can only use the numbers that are provided which are murky at best. But God knows.
There was a bunch of prolife legislation that was passed and rejected. Particularly in Ohio we still had the Heartbeat Bill to pass and redirecting funds from Planned Parenthood, besides others. Incredibly, the THEN Senate President Niehaus rejected and in fact stacked the deck against voting on the Heartbeat Bill before the end of this year. Mr. Niehaus calls himself a prolife state Senator, I call him a liar and traitor. He purposely moved other Senators around so that a vote would not prevail if it was able to be voted on. It was his intention to not undo the prolife work he had done in his tenure; this was his last year in the Ohio Senate because of term limits. I smell an agenda. Is the bill dead? No, just a bit injured. I certainly hope that my testimonies [and others] at the Senate and House committees not be in vain.
2012 was a year of marking the Conservative territory. It was a time of real separation from mainstream politics for us but ‘they’ did not see it that way. Still the conservative is stereotyped as a fat, rich white guy; I am neither fat, rich or a guy, nor are many of the people I know that fought this election fight. We are a band of brothers that sit in foxholes trying to fight this Socialist war against the Republic of America. And now they’re trying to take our guns away. SHEESH.
There were bright spots this past year; one of my favorites was the Stand UP for Religious Freedom rallies [rejecting the HHS Mandate]. I had the privilege to speak at all three in defense of unborn children and post-abortive women. Our laws are woefully inadequate for our born children and women, much less the unborn. Women are secularized and brutalized by abortion and even killed for being women in the womb. Even in these United States, we still make women and girls second to even the WORST of men, namely the Liberal politicians that demonize us by allowing abortion up to FULL TERM for ANY REASON. We can thank ‘common law liberty’ for allowing Doe and Roe to continue even though life in the womb has been determined to be actual human life after all. It is incredible to see how horrifically skewed our leadership is and probably continue to be. But what do I know…I’m just a WOMAN.
It was a JOY to meet some of the stalwarts of Prolife Ministry this year – kudos to Bryan Kemper, Troy Newman, Rev. Patrick Mahoney and Shawn Carney for all of the great work they do for the unborn. It was a blessing to meet you all.
Our local 40 Days for Life campaigns was the best yet! We had great speakers and turnouts. The Dayton team works hard to get our community and churches to participate and at the very least show up. Abortion is still a tough issue for most people to think about much less speak out loud about. But with every little step, we see more faces and more participation. There is always room for more at the abortion facility to help and pray for the unborn and the women who leave empty handed. The 2013 Spring 40 Days for Life Campaign starts February 13th! Click here for participating cities and countries.
I am still pleasantly shocked at the faithfulness of the people that stick with Prolife Ministry all year, every day the facility is open, to speak with women and girls about their unborn child and the choice they will ultimately make. In Ohio, we have a 24 hour waiting period so they have to come to the facility twice which gives us two opportunities to share Life with them. Sometimes they change their minds, but most times they do not. Sometimes they come by themselves if they own a car; other times someone like a boyfriend or their own parent takes them. I’ve seen these women and girls wait and wait and wait because her ride didn’t show up after her abortion. She leaves there with her eyes down, literally empty inside, devoid of everything, no one waiting for her. I know – I’ve been there.
But it doesn’t have to stay that way. Besides this being my ‘Prolife year in Review’, this is also what KeepLifeLegal’s intentions are to continue in Prolife Ministry for 2013. We are Evangelical Christians that are born again, spirit filled with the Calling of God to do His work for the unborn and spreading the Gospel. We speak and preach when asked to; we give when the Spirit leads us and embrace the broken with the love of Jesus Christ. It is our purpose to broaden KeepLifeLegal this year to make way for a literal highway of Prolife Ministry as far as God will take us.
My Bible is a book of LIFE, not choice. We preach Christ crucified, we preach LIFE. And above all, PRAY.
Happy New Year and may God richly Bless you!
