Dear Ms. Tierce: Abortion is Not Normal

“Today is a day of trouble, insults and disgrace. It is like when a child is ready to be born, but the mother has no strength to deliver the baby.” Isaiah 37:3

Merritt Tierce, executive director of the Texas Equal Access Fund, when asked what the impact of Texas’s new pro-life laws will be, said that more women will use misoprostol to self-abort, but also, “Many women will continue unwanted pregnancies because they have no other options. Because of the shame and stigma that surround abortion, we may not hear these stories in detail; however we know that, historically, this is what happens when abortion access is restricted.”

Ms. Tierce neglected to speak about the millions of women who have been harmed by botched abortions, and the hundreds of women who have died because of abortions gone bad. She didn’t say that Planned Parenthood’s myth of “safe, legal and rare abortions” is an outright lie. And of course she didn’t speak out about the over 55 million babies dead by abortion since the passage of Roe VS Wade which made abortion legal, lethal and large.

She did however add that “the only way to make abortion acceptable” is for post-abortive women who “just [didn’t] want to have a baby right now” to speak up so that abortion is “normalized.” Once again, she overlooks the thousands of women, myself included, who do speak up about how we regret our abortions. She makes no mention of course of the millions of men who regret lost fatherhood.

Abortion and harmful contraceptives are not normal. They are not natural. They hurt people, and kill people, especially babies. We must act now! We must continue to tell the truth about abortion and its impact on our lives. We must connect the dots between abortion, racism and sexual perversion.

Dragging their lies behind them…

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

“What sorrow for those who drag their sins behind them with ropes made of lies, who drag wickedness behind them like a cart!” Isaiah 5:18 (NLT)

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep, And can’t tell where to find them; Leave them alone,
And they’ll come home, Dragging their tails (tales) behind them. “Little Bo-Peep”

Somehow this scripture and the nursery rhyme I learned when I was a little girl keep running into each other in my spirit. The sheep are the lost souls who are thirsty for truth; yet instead of meeting Jesus, the Good Shepherd, they are being deceived by wolves in sheep’s clothing. Not only has Bo-Peep lost her sheep, The Church (every denomination included) has lost God’s Sheep.

Of course there is a major difference between the Bible and Nursery Rhymes. The Bible is the Word of God. Nursery Rhymes are friendly little human inspired teaching tools often connected to fable and conjecture. The Bible has eternal power to liberate us from our fears and problems. Nursery rhymes are not nearly that reliable. For example, while Bo-Peep knows that the sheep are lost and we do too; unlike Bo-Peep, we know where to find the lost sheep – the least of these. It’s just that too many of us are caught up in concerns about material gains, what we are going to eat, where we are going to sleep, political idolatry (masquerading as political correctness and worshipping the created U. S. Constitution rather than our God who created it) and all other types of things that we are too busy to open our eyes and see the sheep and feed the sheep the Good News!

What got me started on this train of writing is that Isaiah recognized that people are dragging lies along and deceiving the people, and the sheep in Bo-Peep’s song are out there dragging their tales of woe without discovering solutions to their problems. It is very obvious therefore that the human solutions, the suggestion that we should just leave the sheep alone, or file some more law suits and pass some more bills will all work out and the sheep will find their way back to sanity.

This is exactly what we have been doing for the past 50 years since The March on Washington and the I HAVE A DREAM speech. We have allowed something (the sower of discord actually) to confuse the global awareness of the connection of God to everything, and drink from the sewer of so called “separation of church and state.” We have allowed the sin of racism to continue (failing to humbly admit that we are not separate races, but one human blood/race as stated in Acts 17:26), we have allowed prayer to be banned from schools, babies to be aborted by the millions, natural marriage and family to be ridiculed, and all too many of us remain silent and fearful of losing the favor of other humans.

While many of us continue to secretly meet our spiritual obligations to pray for all those in authority (and even those who wish to be) behind closed doors, we are still silent in the public square and at the voting booths. We must remember that we cannot turn away from our civic duty to vote for and elect God fearing leaders. It would be foolish to come off the wall and to turn away from these responsibilities. If we have abandoned these duties, I am urging us to reprioritize our thinking, our actions and yes, our praying.

I was with Larry and Doris Tomczak of theeawarenessgroup.com recently. God breathed on His assignment to us to “awaken the people to truth.” Using my 3 Headed Monster Chart, we discussed the connection among racism, reproductive genocide and sexual perversion. All three human states of rebellion defy God’s loving desire for a family and God’s command to “be fruitful and multiply.”

The racist basically says this: “I might (not I will) be fruitful and multiply… I might have sex with the opposite sex and make babies, but only on my terms. If the sexual partner doesn’t look like me, have the same skin color and other qualifying factors, then no – I will not be fruitful and multiply. I will not agree with and accept that we are to be brothers and sisters, that we are one human blood/race.” (Acts 17:26)

The reproductive genocide mindset says this: “I may or may not have sex or use artificial means for the purpose of conceiving children. I will not accept that the initial design for human sexuality has always been for procreation. I will do as I wish. It is my life, my egg or my sperm. It is my body. I will take surgical and chemical means to have my way, even if it hurts babies, women and families and society at large. If I am a woman and become pregnant, I will believe the lies of abortion minded facilitators and abort the babies. I will risk breast cancer, cervical cancer, strokes, heart attacks and other hidden dangers to stand for the right to choose death over life.” The solution? Choose Life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

The sexual perversion camp pretty much says: “I will do whatever feels good no matter the consequences to myself or others. I was born this way, and so God must want me this way. I do not want to know that God made a way for me to conform with God’s plan for procreation – that I can be Born Again. I would rather believe the lie that God creates sickness, disease and sexual perversion. I’m not sure that I even want to know who did create all of the problems in the world.” What many do not understand is that all human beings are born into sin. (Psalms 51:5) Too many people don’t believe this, that’s why sickness, disease, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, child molestation and abuse, rape, incest, pornography and other even darker human conditions are all connected to this link in the tail (tale) that is being dragged along behind all too many deceptions. The solution? Born into the Human Condition? Be born again. (John 3:7)

All too many accept evil as good and good as evil. For instance, dragging their lies and deceptions along, Planned Parenthood doles out death and tries to sell the package in a glittering lie called “family planning.” Sounds like what the snake did to Eve thousands of years ago. He told her that if she ate the forbidden, she would not die. Well, she died, just like millions of aborted babies and hundreds of their mothers died from abortions. Parents ate the forbidden lies of the abortionists, and millions have died, sadly legally since 1973. And yet, people invite PPH to their churches and rallies and accept their free condoms, tainted “grant monies (many of which are obtained from our tax dollars) and all of the other trappings that promise happiness and bring sadness.

As I point out the obvious, that there are wolves when we need good shepherds, please don’t be discouraged. We are actually winning this battle. In the ongoing commitment to encourage and equip you, I want to recommend a new book by a new friend Dr. Penny Smith: The Second Woman Bible Study: Healing from Intimate Partner Violence and Post-Abortion Grief

Also, please visit my website at africanamericanoutreach.com for the new updates and videos and other tools that can assist you in fighting the good fight.

Finally, as we move away from the long hot summer towards Thanksgiving and Christmas, and next year towards the March for Life, The Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday, Black History Month and yes, the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Acts, we can see that we have a lot ahead of us. I’m praying that we will not be like Bo-Peep and say we don’t know how to find the lost sheep – the sheep like Miley Cyrus who seems not to be aware of and understand the beauty and preciousness of her sexuality; like NBA “power couple” Udonis Haslem and Faith Rein who announced their abortion at their wedding; like all of the precious young people who are chanting against God at rallies these days – yes, like all of the millions who are lost in darkness and need to see the bright light of Agape Love and hope. The truth is this. If we leave them alone, they can’t come home. They’ll just keep dragging their tales behind them. Please pray with me and wake up before the dream really becomes a nightmare!

Alveda King On Racism, Reproductive Genocide & Sexual Perversion

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 6, 2013

Contact: Leslie Palma
leslie@priestsforlife.org
or 732-757-9078

Dr. Alveda King to Pope, Clergy, World Leaders and Humanity at Large – Erase and Replace: Hate the sin, love the sinner

Atlanta, GA – In the wake of the Martin/Zimmerman tragedy, in the face of the looming human sexuality debate, on the wings of the promised 50th Anniversary Celebration of the historical “March on Washington” and “I Have a Dream” speech by her famous uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach, Priests for Life, has a word of encouragement for Pope Francis and all world leaders and humanity at large:

“Yes, we are facing difficult days. Yet there is hope ahead. Have faith and love for every member of the human race. It is time to hate the sin and love the sinner. We can set the example with personal and communal repentance, revival, restoration, rebuilding, recovery and renewal.”

For Alveda King, “it’s all about redemption.” Her uncle once said: “We must discover the power of love, the power – the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that we will be able to make of this old world a new world. We will be able to make men better. Love is the only way.”

Looking forward his niece calls for “an eraser to set the record straight. Erase the old ways and let our minds be renewed. Replace the word tolerance with the expression of genuine compassion. Override judgment with mercy and Divine Justice.”

Known for her bold platforms on behalf of the unborn and natural life and family, she explains: “Somehow we have forgotten or perhaps never known the purpose for human life on this planet. The Bible warns us of the challenges of uncontrollable lust unleashed by human sexuality gone amuck. Generally people involved in sexual activity springing from fornication, adultery and even same sex liaisons do not experience the lasting fulfillment that monogamous heterosexual couples do. This is why it is written:

“Matthew 19: 4 “Haven’t you read the Scriptures?” Jesus asked. “From the beginning ‘God made them male and female… This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined (sexually) to his wife, and the two are united into one… Divorce was not what God had originally intended. 10 Jesus’ disciples then said to him, “If this is the case, it is better not to marry!”

“Yet in 1 Corinthians 7:8, it is written that it is better to marry than to burn with lust.”

“Again Jesus also goes as far as to speak to those who are either born without a sexual desire for members of the opposite sex; forced into an alternate lifestyle or choose a life without sexual desire for someone of the opposite sex.

“Matthew 19:11: 11 “Not everyone can accept this statement,” Jesus said; “only those whom God helps. 12 Some are born as eunuchs, some have been made eunuchs by others, and some choose not to marry for the sake of the Kingdom of Heaven. Let anyone accept this who can.” (In the original translation the term eunuch includes castration and other limiting factors surrounding heterosexual sexual unions.)

“In error many have misunderstood these sayings to mean that God is in favor of sexual relationships that interrupt His original plan for procreativity. We forget that God doesn’t create sin, sickness and unnatural human circumstances. If someone is born a certain way, say with an infirmity, a misshapen limb, an unnatural sexual desire — that does not mean that God desired for them to be born that way. That’s why John 3:16 is so important.”

“For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, so that all who believe in Jesus will have eternal life.”

Lamenting over the state of affairs, Alveda says: “Sadly, many have not known of or accepted the precious gift of Jesus and His blood which corrects and eliminates human sin and sadness. Even sadder is that those who have accepted this gift are not willing and humble enough to share this gift with this world, because to share it we must be repentant, transparent and nonjudgmental.”

three headed monster Revised2Alveda insists that “we are dealing with a three headed monster with racism as the first head. Racism is a sin, because it is a deception in that we are not separate races. We are all of one blood.”

“And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth…” Acts 17:26

“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish as fools.” MLK

“The second head of the monster is reproductive genocide. The directive to be fruitful and multiply is a blessing not the curse reflected in the error of artificial and harmful contraceptives and abortion. There are healthy options such as abstinence and natural family planning that do not involve killing women and children.
“The third head is sexual perversion with all of its trappings.

“Somehow we tiptoe around the obvious, never genuinely seeking to separate the sinner from the sin. We can love the one and hate the other.”
“Jude 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.”
“For me, life is a journey and the Bible is my roadmap,” Alveda continues. “The paths and trails have pitfalls, but as long as the light of the glorious Gospel shines, we can see. We may stumble, but we don’t go over a cliff because God’s love, His Son’s blood and His Holy Spirit all keep us safe.”

Making an urgent appeal for unity, Alveda urges: “Now is the time to erase fear, hatred and strife. Time is short so we must be bold. Change and tolerance are steps along the way, but it will take transformation and compassion to get us across the finish line.

“My parents Rev. A. D. King and Mrs. Naomi King joined Uncle M. L. and the hundreds of thousands in Washington, DC 50 years ago. He had a prayer on his lips and a dream in his heart. As we approach the 50th Anniversary of The March on Washington, I plan to observe August 28th with members of my family, friends and the world while praying in my heart that we will all come away transformed by God’s love.”

Racism, Slavery, Sexual Immorality and Abortion

Friday, January 4th, 2013

SPACER
Luke 4:18-19
The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Dr. Karen StevensonOur good friend Dr. Karen Stevenson, MD, a pro-life advocate, has written an insightful paper that confirms new views on the connection between racism, slavery, and abortion.

While studying the connection between abortion and slavery, one might wish to consider the research respectfully submitted by those who are determined to get to the bottom of the controversies and shed some light on the issue.

1. Excerpt from Utrum by Dr. Karen Stevenson

“As Kathleen Neal Cleaver states in her review of Dorothy Roberts’ book, Killing the Black Body: Race, Reproduction, and the meaning of Liberty, “Roberts learned the significance of reproductive autonomy not from the contemporary abortion movement but from studying the histories of slave women who fought to gain control over their lives.”[1] Any treatise that discusses black women and their reproductive freedoms must take into account the impact of these freedoms on the black community as a whole. Thus, any issue germane to African-American women is also crucial to the welfare of the African-American family and by extension, the African-American community.

Abortion benefits African-American women because it allows them to exercise control over their reproductive destinies.

Slave women in America did not have the right to self-determination, and they had no autonomy over their bodies in any way. The profit driven slave economy benefitted tremendously from their toil and their procreative abilities. The slave woman’s children were not her own, and by the whim of her master, they could be sold away from her, never to be seen again. In post Civil War America, there was no further need for black women to procreate. In fact, her ability to procreate no longer served the greater good.”

2. Excerpt from 2013 Message by Dr. Alveda King

“One can’t help but consider if disregard for the value of women and children is still at the root of abortion today. Consider this, many if not all of the women abolitionists should have been the forerunners of the Pro-Life Movement. Instead, we have a counterfeit “Women’s Rights Movement” which supports abortion and harmful contraceptive drugs today. Why in the world, how in the world could this be?

Remember, both women and men were allowed to be involved with the Anti-Slavery act. But, women could only go so far because they couldn’t vote, and many could not own property. Non-African Women and all slaves were actually considered to be chattel or property back then. So, it was hard for white and black women to be involved as abolitionists because white women were treated in very similar manner to African Americans, and most Black women were slaves. Unfortunately, the same thing was happening to the Native American Population. They were all considered to be chattels.

So the frustrated slave women often aborted their babies (Pure Breed and Mulatto) voluntarily as an act against sustaining future oppression. The Angry Caucasian Wives often coerced or forced abortion on their husband’s “Black Beauties” as a means of retaliation against their own brand of experienced oppression.

If you think about it, the same issues are at the heart of the Middle East Conflict. Sarah’s and Hagar’s sons are brothers with Abraham’s seed, yet their bitter battle still rages. My, what a bitter root of judgment in all these situations!

While many women who were abolitionists ended up becoming women rights activists, bitterness caused them to adopt a contraceptives agenda and finally an abortion agenda to exercise what they considered to be rights over their wombs. So now we have a war on babies and the wombs often led by women and men controlled by a desire for revenge and avarice.”

3. Excerpt from Slavery _____ Jealousy of the Slave Mistresses

“It is a fact generally observed in slave societies that the mistress is more cruel in her treatment of slaves than the master. It is a fact confirmed by our chronicles, our folklore, our oral tradition, and travelers. There are on record not two or three, but scores of cases of the cruelty of the senhoras de engenho toward defenseless slaves.”
