Podcast: 40 Days for LIFE and the Public Witness

40 Days for LIFE has two 40 day vigils every year since 2007, saving over 18K lives! Go to 40DaysForLife.com to find a vigil near you. 

Our prolife ministry began after googling 40 Days for Life and seeing a prolife public witness. 

#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?

40 Days Fall 2012

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: The Vigil Doesn’t Stop.

40 Days for Life’s Spring 2014 Campaign ended this last Sunday. We had our rally to celebrate and commemorate LIFE and our results during that time. We had turnaways, three days the facility shut down unexpectedly, AND the facility manager QUIT. And while her departure is great news, she will be replaced.

Yes, the vigil for 40 Days if over but the job at hand is NOT over! Yesterday was one of the busiest days I’ve seen in a long time. The parking lot was overflowing. One of the worst things I see at the facilities is these guys dropping off women to abort while they sit in their cars chatting someone up on their cell phones laughing and smoking. Their baby is being murdered, torn from their mother’s body and they laugh.

I saw a man drop off a woman that left to pick up the money order for the abortion. He got out of the car, head down, wiping away tears. And even though this was hard to see, this man is still accountable for the death of this child because he did not stop it.

Precious few people will tell us if they decided to not abort. To that I have always said to look through spiritual eyes and let God have the results. If He wants us to know them, I assure you, He will. Remember, giving up is NOT an option.

However, now that 40 Days is over, it’s time to gear up for the summer, get the supplies needed and praying up.  Sidewalk counseling/prayer vigils are exhausting but exhilarating! Doing what God has called you to do is never without public disdain but it is a JOY, nevertheless.

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” Matthew 13:44

As a prolifer, I’m all in. As a Christian, I’m all in. I bought the field and will cultivate it in the name of Jesus.

Don’t let the 40 Days Campaign be in vain, we need you on the sidewalk more than ever! It is proven that when more of us show up, abortion facilities close! They are a business FIRST, when the money slows, they close.

No Abortion Saturdays

I live in a town that is LAZY. This town is SO LAZY that no one stops to give us the finger and assorted foul tirades face-to-face…they just slow down some and speed right up when they see my camera. I’ve heard women screaming at us while her children are in the back seat, men of all ages cursing; my favorite ‘comment’ was being called a filthy teabagger. Hilarious…that’s probably the coolest compliment I’ve had in ever.

Matthew 7:15-20 says, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”

Teabagger they said, and I am known by my fruits of what I do AND don’t do. I stand up for the Constitutional rights of free speech, freedom OF religion and the right to LIFE on the sidewalk and in my daily life. Thusly, those that show up or don’t show up to counter-protest are known by their fruits OR lack thereof. Church Sign

Conversely, the prochoicer can believe themselves to be the bearer of good fruit but I assure you that God does NOT. God does not order or condone the death of unborn children for any reason nor does He advocate birth control. God loved His creation of mankind so much that He made US in HIS image, thereby taking the ‘reproductive healthcare’ quotient OUT of the equation for those that either use or accept the use for birth control. Why, you ask: Because birth control causes people to use sex as a pastime instead of what it was intended to do – use within the boundary of marriage and TO have children. Birth control produces unplanned children which are more likely TO be aborted rather than not.

Oh, you think I’m some kind of religious zealot? You’re close…I’m a JESUS FREAK and I profess the Gospel.

However, this abortion facility is closed on Saturdays. If it were open on Saturday we would get more of the fair-weather prochoicers…not in the morning when the moms would show up for their killing appointments. As I said, earlier, I live in a LAZY town.

I have never seen anything like this zombie-like laziness, no one will do anything but has busloads of opinions and plenty of finger-waggin’. This place has become like the Walking Dead, devouring the brains of the lethargic and comatose – in and out of the church, for both the prolife ministry AND the prochoice ‘movement’.

If you are prolife, GET OUT AND PRAY, tell others and be a part of what God has for you. If your church is not cooperating, SHOW UP ANYWAY:

“The lazy man is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who can answer sensibly.” Proverbs 26:16

The Abortion Disposal, Urban Legend, Geography, Divine Appointments: Standing in the GAP

I’ll start off with what prochoicers call ‘urban legend‘, stories that resurface every now and then to new ears. Now, either prochoicers will say that it was a ONE TIME instance [which I am about to debunk] OR it’s an outright lie. Here’s the copy of the affidavit from a fellow prolifer. In part, this is what is meant by the “Abortion Disposal“:

“At the end of the workday, Dr. James J Parks the owner of the Mayfair Women’s Center demonstrated to me this method of fetal disposal. We went into a utility room that was used for such things as sterilizing instruments. On the counter top were several white plastic buckets, each containing fetuses from about 15 to 22 weeks size. Dr. Parks reached up to a shelf and brought down several pieces of metal that were parts of a meat grinder and placed them on the counter. Next, he assembled the grinder and clamped it to the counter top. As I looked at the grinder, I realized that it was very old and resembled the same meat grinder my mother used years ago to grind meat into hamburger meat. Dr. Parks then began to empty each bucket into the hopper on top of the grinder, and with his left hand pressed the fetal tissue down into the hopper as he turned the handle with his right hand, grinding the tissue. As he did this the tissue oozed out of the end of the grinder like multiple tubes of pink toothpaste. Though I have seen many disturbing and unsightly things in my 20 years of medical experience, I was not prepared for this. I became instantly nauseated and vomited. All the fetuses were ground into a large bucket, he dumped the contents into the sink and washed it down the sink with water.”

This happened in an abortion facility in Colorado over 20 years ago in the Mayfield Women’s Center, read about James Parks on their current site. Incredible how they forget the TRUTH. AND as it happens, this modern day ‘Dr. Frankenstein’ was harvesting and selling aborted baby organs, an article said.

NOT URBAN LEGEND: I went to an abortion facility last May to witness with other prolifers and met a man that told a similar story of an ‘Abortion Disposal‘. About 25 years ago, this man was a plumber and was sent to a job to unclog a drain at an abortion facility that is now closed. When he got there he saw BLOOD everywhere, backing up from the drain in the floor. He was told that the garbage disposal in the sink got jammed up and caused the clog from aborted baby body parts. Since that day, this man reacquainted himself with his Faith and has been on the sidewalk ever since for LIFE.

While these ‘doctors’ kind of disappeared in to the sunset, others are in plain view. An abortion facility in Cleveland shut down after NUMEROUS health violations. Martin Ruddock has been one of those that the word ‘notorious’ was made for. Like most abortionists, he feels he is above the law:

In 2006, The Ohio Department of Health ordered Ruddock’s abortion clinic close due to “over a dozen code violations.” The Center for Women’s Health in Cleveland was informed that its license would not be renewed after inspectors discovered that the clinic was not meeting even the most rudimentary of standards, such as taking a patient’s temperature and blood pressure before risky late-term abortion surgeries. Read the rest here.

GEOGRAPHY: In 2006 they tried to close this guy down…but it took another 7 YEARS! In 2013 Martin Ruddock’s abortion facility was finally CLOSED for ABORTION BUSINESS. You would think that since he had been essentially run out the abortion business in Ohio that he would be ‘retired’? NOT A CHANCE. He has been licensed in the state of MICHIGAN in FOUR ABORTION FACILITIES. See Martin Ruddock’s violations here.

That brings us to ‘Divine Appointments‘. In each of these stories there have been men and women standing in the gap to save unborn life AND the lives of the moms. Abortionists are interested in profit, not ‘womens rights’ or ‘reproductive health’. I have yet to see an abortionist drive a car that emulates their clientele.

graphiccarabortionAnd with regard to the abortion industry, some standards of ‘care’ have changed, but only the geography of it. Now medical waste trucks pick up aborted babies, at my local facility that’s EVERY TUESDAY. The remains of aborted babies are taken away in red biohazard bins to be disposed of elsewhere.

Teflon Don of AbortionMartin Haskell’s Cincinnati abortion facility has lost its variances and appeals. He has days to apply federally or close…or both. He has other facilities that are still open for abortion business which means all he will do is change the geography to continue to kill unborn babies for profit.

Until Haskell is closed and Ruddock is shut down, we have to stand in the gap, standing for LIFE on the sidewalk of the facilities they use to kill. Life brings all of us to the sidewalk, our Faith shows us that we have appointments made by God to pray and witness for Him to the backslidden and lost that are choosing to end the life of their unborn babies. No one else will tell them the truth of the life within them…their own and their baby’s. We have a responsibility to SHOW UP peacefully, boots on the ground ready for battle with the darkness that resides on the other side of the property line. For the faithful, this is not hard but it isn’t easy.

With whatever the circumstances are, every pre-abortive mom and their coercers are there for one reason: To pay an abortionist to take their temporary problem away. Death is forever, which I know firsthand. There are no take-backs, no do-overs. Dead is dead, and the tiny unsuspecting baby is not the only victim; there is still one wounded, forever.

Consider what God has directed you to do for the lives of the unborn. This is a divine appointment you need to keep. When there is no regard for the lives of unborn babies, we have gone into a darkness that only Jesus Christ can enlighten.

Keep that appointment! SEE YOU ON THE SIDEWALK!
