Jesus is the ROCK – Let the Truth roll! March on Mighty WARRIORS!

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012





When Rush Limbaugh recently called a young lady a slut for wanting to support the HHS Mandate that would pay for free birth control I was dismayed to hear a young lady called a slut because I know that you don’t win women to the Kingdom of God by calling us sluts.

There’s a website out called “Rock the Slut Vote” and it has a long list of categories that would perhaps cause a woman to be a slut. When I look at that list, I see that I have done many things on there in my lifetime before I got on my journey into the Kingdom of God in 1983 – a journey that started with repentance. Yes, repentance from my sinful mistakes, many of which are listed here.

So I was dismayed by the women celebrating being called a “slut” – not that I don’t sympathize with their need for expression – but do want to say to ladies that it’s not a badge of honor to be called a slut.

Ladies should not be called bad names. We house the wombs of the world and the wombs of the future. And so we should be regarded and cherished and respected as every human being should be respected. That’s why I found the “slut” website to be so disturbing.

The “slut” website just begs for attention from WARRIOR women; women of compassion – many of us who have been called sluts or worse, and have lived and overcome to tell our stories.

Why clear thinking women, strong women with directional purpose and goals would choose to wear a slut banner is kind of odd to me. I understand their pain, But I have found along my journey in life of over sixty years now that repentance is good for the soul.

And yes, much of the conduct is sin and not a badge of honor. No woman should want to have taxpayers pay to subsidize her sexual conduct of choice. That’s what the HHS mandate calls for by the way. Free birth control.

Ladies, if we are woman enough to choose to have sex, we should be woman enough to not require other people to foot the bill. Fair is fair.

So, again, there can be no revival without repentance. There are young women who basically need to hear the truth that there are certain kinds of behavior that will bring us greif including what we experience with the birth control, the abortions which are linked to breast cancer, cervical cancer, birth control that’s invasive leading to heart attacks and strokes. Top that off with knowing that when birth control fails, women sometimes get pregnant and choose to get abortions. There’s a long list of all these problems.

I can give you a few links from my own website, from my own research.

So anyway, I find the slut website disturbing. I find Rush’s terminology of the young lady disturbing. It’s time now to put away the injurious words and bring about healing. After all, JESUS ROCKS!

That’s why I’ve joined with my sisters at Silent No More Awareness and we are also joining with the WARRIOR women. I’m also a WARRIOR woman with the National Black Pro-life Coalition.

The Bible says that the older women should teach the younger women. I’m an old lady now, and I speak this truth in love, cuz love never fails.

Love,
Mama King

Two pro-life bills were signed by Georgia’s Governor Deal last week: the GA Fetal Pain bill and the ban on Assisted Suicides.

Monday, May 7th, 2012





I had the honor of serving on the Board of Georgia Right to Life during the beginning stages of this wonderful pro-life efforts. It’s a great victory for the pro-life movement and the the state of Georgia!

GRTL President Dan Becker today expressed thanks to Governor Nathan Deal for signing a law that protects preborn children capable of feeling pain.

“I am deeply grateful that Governor Deal has demonstrated his commitment to protecting the preborn,” Becker said, “by signing this measure, at least 1,500 babies a year will no longer be killed.”

Previously, Georgia allowed abortions for almost any reason throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

The new law, HB 954 sponsored by Rep. Doug McKillip (District 115), will take effect on January 1, 2013. It clearly establishes that Georgia has a “compelling state interest in protecting the lives of unborn children from the stage at which they are capable of feeling pain.”

That stage is now set at 20 weeks after gestation, which means no abortions can be performed after that, except in cases where it’s necessary to save the life of the mother, or to end a “medically futile” pregnancy.

“While this new law represents significant progress in saving lives, a last-minute amendment that allows doctors to end so-called futile pregnancies is a first step to establishing a eugenic policy in Georgia,” Becker said, “It opens the door to destroying babies doctors think may be less than perfect.”

Noting that the proposal prompted a heated and emotional debate, Becker added “I commend those legislators who honored the sanctity of life and did not abandon their principles.”

Georgia now joins six other states that have passed similar laws.

Georgia Right to Life Hails Assisted Suicide Ban Signing

GRTL President Dan Becker today praised Governor Nathan Deal for signing the state’s new assisted suicide law.

“Stopping the immoral and barbaric practice of killing in the name of compassion is the right thing to do,” Becker said, “Governor Deal deserves credit for endorsing this measure.”

The bill, HB 1114 sponsored by Rep. Ed Setzler (District 35), was passed in response to last February’s decision by the Georgia Supreme Court that struck down the state’s previous weak and ineffective law.

The law becomes effective immediately.

The old law only prevented advertising assisted suicide services, but did not prohibit the procedure itself.

“Any society that claims to value life cannot justify taking a life lest we risk establishing a public policy with its attendant expectation of a ‘duty to die’,” Becker said, “The Hippocratic Oath says, ‘I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel …’ “

“We should instead devote our knowledge and resources to helping people in desperate situations.”

Priests for Life Calls for Chinese Dissident to Be Brought to Safety

Friday, May 4th, 2012





FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: May 3, 2012

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

Priests for Life has joined calls for the U.S. State Department to immediately take steps to bring to safety Chinese forced-abortion dissident Chen Guangcheng, his family and anyone who helped him escape house arrest two weeks ago.

“There is no way to ensure their safety if they remain in China,” said Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. “The whole world is watching this situation, and we must act now.

“Chen has been courageous enough to speak out against forced abortion and sterilization in China. But for too long, the United States has been silent about the brutality with which these policies are enforced, and the way those who oppose them are silenced. We cannot be silent about the very real danger facing Chen, his wife, Yuan Weijing, and those who helped him.”

Father Pavone urged everyone to contact their U.S. Senators and Representatives about this matter.

The Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues, a ministry of Gospel of Life, has urged Parliamentarians to voice concern for Chen to Chinese officials and embassies in their respective countries; to call, fax and email national embassies in China to create global concern for Chen’s well-being, and to use social media to keep the international spotlight on Chen and his family. For information, go to www.PNCIUS.org
The Christian Defense Coalition has organized a prayer vigil Friday at noon, in front of the White House. The location is 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, on the Lafayette Park side. Priests for Life will be one of the groups represented.

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit Priests for Life.

We Commend New York Senator for His Bold Stand for Truth…

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012





It took a lot of courage to speak the truth and that’s exactly what Senator Ruben Diaz did. Pray for Senator Diaz as he has come under a lot of attack from those that would keep the light of truth from being shown on such a contraversial issue as abortion.

African-American State Senator attacked for comparing the concept of pro-choice on abortion to Hitler! Says: “Hitler was pro-choice”

Bronx state Sen. Ruben Diaz Tuesday invoked Hitler as a pro-choice advocate in a rant against a bill to strengthen the state’s abortion laws. Hitler “chose to send the Jews to Auschwitz,” Democrat Diaz declared in an email to supporters and reporters. “That was not their choice that was Hitler’s choice.”

Diaz, a Pentecostal minister, was writing about his opposition to the Reproductive Health Act many of his fellow Democrats are pushing.

Read Mr. Diaz’s full statement on abortion below:

I am State Senator Rubén Díaz and I represent the 32nd Senatorial District in Bronx County. You should know that I am also an Ordained Minister of the Church of God with headquarters in Cleveland, Tennessee, the Pastor of Christian Community Neighborhood Church located at 1437 Longfellow Avenue Bronx, NY and the President of the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization.

You should know that Governor Cuomo and members of the Legislature are in the process of pushing and approving the Reproductive Health Act. This legislation will make abortion on demand a reality in the State of New York.

Today, I feel privileged to write to you about the unborn in America and I would like to start with two questions: First, what is an abortion? And second is a fetus a life? Simply stated, an abortion is the termination of a pregnancy and the destruction of a fetus.

You should know that before January 22nd, 1973, (39 years ago), which I call a day of infamy in American history, abortions were illegal in most states and were only performed for extreme circumstances.

In 1970, a lady by the name of Sarah Weddington, a lawyer from Texas went to court and filed a lawsuit on behalf of a pregnant woman named Norma McCorrey. This lady, Norma McCorrey did not want her name to be released therefore she went under the alias of Jane Roe.

The purpose of that lawsuit was to overturn the State of Texas anti-abortion laws. The lawsuit charged that the laws in Texas were unconstitutional and that they violated women’s rights under the first, fourth, fifth, ninth and fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution.

You also should know that it was then-Dallas District Attorney Henry Wade who was in charge of defending the State of Texas in that historic case which came to be known as Roe Versus Wade.

You should know that since that day of infamy, January 22nd 1973, every year, more than 1.5 million abortions are conducted in America. That means that in the past 39 years at the rate of 4,000 babies each day, we will have killed and slaughtered 60 million American citizens.

Now let’s go back to the original question:

Catholic Group Responds to Obama’s Desperate Attempt to “Dismiss” Lawsuit Against ObamaCare

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012





FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: May 2, 2012

Contact: Leslie Palma
347-286-7277

Staten Island, NY — Priests for Life, a New York-based international pro-life organization of Catholic clergy and laity, today announced that their attorneys have responded to the Obama Administration’s desperate attempt to “shut down” the group’s lawsuit that’s been filed to stop ObamaCare from violating the conscience and morals of Americans.

Recently, Obama’s lawyers sent a letter to the court announcing its intention to file a motion to dismiss — claiming erroneously that Priests for Life does not have legal “standing” to bring the lawsuit, and that the organization hasn’t been “injured” yet because the regulations won’t take effect until January.

Priests for Life lead attorney Charles LiMandri argued that the government is simply wrong. He wrote in his response, “Priests for Life has standing, its claims are ripe for review, and this court is ‘obliged’ to address the merits of each.”

LiMandri quotes Thomas v. Union Carbide Agric. Prod. Co., 473 U.S. at 581 (1985)—a case whose precedence applies here: “One does not have to await the consummation of threatened injury to obtain preventive relief.”

The lawsuit that scares the Obama Administration, Priests for Life v. Sebelius, seeks to permanently block the implementation of the HHS mandate that imposes clear violations of conscience upon any and all citizens who morally object to abortion and contraception.

“Since the HHS mandate directly affects Priests for Life—and every U.S. citizen—through compulsory funding of contraception and abortion-inducing drugs and devices, our lawsuit is 100 percent legitimate,” says LiMandri.

LiMandri points out that the HHS ‘Abortion Mandate’ forces Priests for Life to either pay for abortion-causing pills… promote them… or be penalized if their employee health-care plan doesn’t comply with the audacious dictatorial decrees of ObamaCare.

“According to the ObamaCare law as it’s written, Priests for Life would be fined as much as $100 per day, per employee. This would cost Priests for Life nearly $2 million a year in fines. And we’re not going to accept this at all.”

Priests for Life is leading the way with this legal challenge of the constitutionality of ObamaCare based on religious freedom issues.

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, states, “We urge our Priests for Life family and all concerned Americans to pray for the success of this legal battle. In my travels across the nation, I see the strength and faith of the American people, and I know we will prevail.”

Blessings or Curses, Life or Death? The Thin Line Between Repentance, Revival and Rebellion

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012





“When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul. Can wicked rulers be allied with You, those who frame injustice by statue? They band together against the life of the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But the Lord has become my stronghold, and my God the rock of my refuge.” Psalm 19-22

During a time of meditation, this scripture turned my attention to the current debate regarding abortion, artificial invasive and harmful birth control methods, and the Roe vs Wade decision which legalized the killing of little innocent babies in the womb. I find myself wondering yet again, why does America allow laws that uphold abortion, and use tax dollars to support the abortion agenda?

Often, during the day to day exploits and activities of the pro-life movement, we come into contact with friends and foes. The thin line comes in when we consider that pro-choice today can always become pro-life tomorrow. That’s what happened to me, not quite overnight, but I was once pro-choice and now I am pro-life.

What causes someone to turn from being pro-choice (which includes the agenda of abortion and euthanasia), to becoming pro-life? There are many, many testimonies about women and men who were once pro-choice and are now pro-life.

Abby Johnson
Dr. Philip Ney
Dr. Noreen Johnson and Dr. Haywood Robinson
Dr. Alveda King

How does one turn away from the rebellion of the pro-choice agenda to the repentance and affirmation of the pro-life mission? I would strongly urge us to consider that such a transformation can only occur when there is a “change of heart.” God, by the Power of the Holy Spirit causes us to repent and turn to Him. In turning to God, we realize that the pro-death agenda is just that. Death.

In the scripture above, we read that there are those who frame injustice by statue (law.) Roe vs Wade, the proposed HHS mandate to pay for distribution of harmful “birth control” drugs and devices, millions of tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, all are part of the framing of injustice in America. As my uncle once said: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

My friends, Planned Parenthood has launched a 40 days for abortion prayer campaign. Is this unbelievable or what?

America needs revival. God isn’t playing with us. There can be no revival without repentance. This won’t be the time for pointing fingers at one another, this must be a time of speaking up and out for life, for protection of our religious freedoms, and for repentance. We must love and encourage one another in this battle, and we must also love those of the pro-choice persuasion. We must fight to win them with love and truth. Amen? Amen!
