Remembering the Pain of Abortion and the Loss of Our Children in the Wake of 9/11 Memorial

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

170907 blog image

“Don’t you see that children are GOD ’s best gift? the fruit of the womb his generous legacy? Like a warrior’s fistful of arrows are the children of a vigorous youth. Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children! Your enemies don’t stand a chance against you; you’ll sweep them right off your doorstep.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭127:3-5‬ ‭MSG‬‬

As the 9/11 Anniversary looms, let us not forget the loss of our unborn.

September 9th is National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children. As we solemnly observe this anniversary, we must remember and repent. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Every day over 3,000 children are aborted in America. This staggering number takes a toll on our whole nation; spirit, soul and body. In the African American community the numbers are disproportionately high due to the mission of genocide and eugenics agenda of Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider. Abortion is a bad product for babies and their mothers. Abortions kill babies and hurt women.

And to make things worse, abortion providers many times seize the opportunity to exploit natural disasters, like Hurricane Harvey, by capitalizing from the pain and circumstances that these victims find themselves in, one of the most stressful times in their lives.

One particular provider, Whole Women’s Health, is offering “no-cost abortions” to victims of Hurricane Harvey. So many of these people have lost their homes, personal property, and sometimes loved ones and of they take up abortion providers on their offer they will also compound their situations by grieving with the death of a lost unborn child. Let’s also remember, there is no such thing as a “cost-free abortion.” There is always a cost. The cost is the life of the baby and the harm caused to the mother, the immediate family and the human family.

This year as we observe the memorial deaths of our aborted brothers and sisters, two of my own babies included in that number, let us pray a prayer of Repentance and commitment to never be silent, never be passive and never be forgetful until all of our brothers and sisters are protected and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice for all.

Let us encourage our President and Congress to keep the commitment to Defund Planned Parenthood.

Finally, let us pray for all in authority; our President and all leaders (1 Timothy 2:2), that we can live peacefully; and that our babies can live. God bless America.

New Undercover Call Details Late-Term Abortion Procedure

Monday, August 14th, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: August 14, 2017

ALBUQUERQUE — Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life have released a new video taken from an undercover phone call placed to Southwestern Women’s Options late-term abortion facility that clearly explains how some second and third trimester abortions are performed in New Mexico.

A healthy woman posing as 25 weeks pregnant is given an overview by an abortion worker detailing how the 3-4 day labor and delivery procedure will take place. Late-term abortion is a grueling process that begins every Tuesday with the killing of a baby by a lethal injection of the medication digoxin and culminates at the end of the week when labor is induced and the mother delivers a stillborn child. Pre-born babies can survive outside the womb at 25 weeks, and sometimes earlier in pregnancy.

In a recent rare interview, Curtis Boyd, owner of Southwestern Women’s Options claims that he provides abortions to women “who are dying if they do not get the abortion, women who have severe congenital defects.” However, if a woman was truly dying she would never subject herself to a 3-4 day abortion procedure. She would go to a hospital where if it were absolutely necessary to end the pregnancy, the pre-born child would be removed from her womb (alive) via a Caesarean section.

In fact, a previous undercover recording Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life released demonstrated that Southwestern Women’s Options screens their patients for health indicators to ensure that the mother is healthy enough for a late-term procedure. It would be medical negligence to perform a lengthy abortion procedure on a woman whose life is truly at risk.

Curtis Boyd and his staff at Southwestern Women’s Options are actually the ones placing the lives of women at risk by performing dangerous late-term abortions. In fact, a Southwestern Women’s Options consent form obtained by Abortion Free New Mexico’s Tara Shaver in 2012 states that abortions done after 18 weeks are more dangerous than carrying the baby to full term.

Another video released by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life exposed that Southwestern Women’s Options isn’t in the habit of performing late-term abortions to save the lives of women as Boyd claims, but is instead operating under an archaic eugenic mindset that empowers their abortionists to willingly abort pre-born babies who are found to have “congenital defects.” Killing babies who are handicapped is at the heart of Boyd’s late-term abortion business.

“Southwestern Women’s Options uses an injection to stop the hearts of pre-born babies and a concoction of several medications to artificially induce labor in women and then sends them away to wait for their child to be born dead. This precarious cocktail of medications is and has resulted in serious life-threatening complications. In May 2011 a patient at Southwestern Women’s Options was rushed to the emergency room after her uterus ruptured during the very same procedure documented in this call. She was 35 weeks pregnant,” Ms. Shaver said. “Late-term abortions are not, as some say, ‘only done to save the lives of women,’ they are performed to make Curtis Boyd huge profits at the expense of precious human lives.

In this call a fee of $8,500 fee is quoted for an abortion at 25 weeks. A Manta.com search of Curtis Boyd in Albuquerque shows that his abortion business has an “annual revenue of $1 to $2.5 million.”

“Americans continue, in large majorities, to reject late-term abortion,” said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “We will continue to expose it by undercover phone calls, so that the existence of these procedures, and their utter barbarity, will be indisputable in the minds and hearts of more and more of our fellow citizens, and that they will take action to end abortion.”

THIS IS WAR: Life in the War Zone

A friend recently asked me for my thoughts concerning camouflage. I didn’t ask why, however the request prompted me to pen my reflections.

In today’s world, things are not always as they seem or appear to be; this trend is increasing. That’s why transparency in a relationship or situation is becoming a premium commodity. Also, more and more, people are calling good evil and evil good, as in the case of defending the abortion or abuse of children as “consensual” or “a right to choose.” Horrendous!

Here’s the response to the request to consider the state of camouflage:

Camouflage is a human tactic which is most commonly recognized as a military tactic. Perhaps a Christian connotation of the concept can be found in this context:

“Stay alert. This is hazardous work I’m assigning you. You’re going to be like sheep running through a wolf pack, so don’t call attention to yourselves. Be as cunning as a snake, inoffensive as a dove.

“Don’t be naive. Some people will impugn your motives; others will smear your reputation—just because you believe in me [Jesus]. Don’t be upset when they haul you before the civil authorities. Without knowing it, they’ve done you—and me—a favor, given you a platform for preaching the kingdom news! And don’t worry about what you’ll say or how you’ll say it. The right words will be there; the Spirit of your Father will supply the words.” – Matthew 10:16-20 MSG

cam•ou•flage
ˈkaməˌflä(d)ZH/
noun
1. The disguising of military personnel, equipment, and installations by painting or covering them to make them blend in with their surroundings.” on the trenches were pieces of turf, which served for camouflage”
synonyms:
disguise, concealment, cover, screen” pieces of mossy turf served for camouflage”
2. Hide or disguise the presence of (a person, animal, or object) by means of camouflage.” the war area had to be camouflaged with mud”
Synonyms: disguise, hide, conceal, keep hidden, mask, screen, cover (up)” the van was camouflaged with branches”

Please friends, pray continually, forgive quickly, love [Agape] deeply and fight the good fight. Don’t give up. God is with us!

Fr. Pavone – Arkansas Cases Show Importance of Judicial Appointments

Monday, July 31st, 2017

NEW YORK – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today said that two court decisions on several Arkansas abortion laws illustrate the importance of judicial appointments.

“It’s not a coincidence that the federal judge who overturned Arkansas’s pro-life laws was appointed by President Obama and the federal appeals court judges who ruled against that jurist’s earlier abortion decision were appointed by President George W. Bush,” said Fr. Pavone. “Liberal presidents name liberal ideologues to the bench who interpret the law to match their agendas; conservative presidents are much more likely to nominate judges who interpret the law to mean what it says.”

President Trump has explicitly said his judges would be pro-life. We applaud him for that.”

A three-judge panel of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed a ruling of Judge Kristine Baker, an Obama appointee, declaring that Arkansas can enforce its law that establishes protections for women taking abortion pills. Shortly after that decision, Judge Baker issued injunctions barring the enforcement of four new Arkansas abortion laws passed this year, including measures to protect unborn children from dismemberment and sex-selection abortions.

Priests for Life is working across the country to pass and defend laws protecting babies from dismemberment.

“The Arkansas cases highlight one of the most important aspects of presidential elections, the naming of federal judges,” added Fr. Pavone. “Lifetime appointments to the bench have life-or-death consequences for our most vulnerable brothers and sisters.”

What Do These “Celebrities” (Except Wonder Woman) Have in Common?

Thursday, July 13th, 2017
Click image to enlarge

Click image to enlarge

Celebrities: You either have to love them, hate them, or not care one way or the other. One interesting truth about “celebrity” men and women is that abortions have affected many of them.

I’ve included Wonder Woman in the mix here because the anti-abortion and anti-life (prolife and pro abortion) feminists are both laying claim to the Wonder Woman mystique these days. Will the real super women please stand up?

I could also include photos of men celebrities, because some of them have post abortion testimonies as well. We’ll save that one for part two.

I’ve added a photo of myself from the 1970′s because I became post abortive in 1970 and was still hiding my pain in deep denial back then

Yes, even celebrities have abortions. All of the women in our meme (except Wonder Woman) have had abortions. Thank goodness people are talking more about abortions these days.

At Civil Rights for the Unborn we uncover the injustice of abortion. Abortion isn’t a civil right; it’s a crime against humanity. At Priests for Life, we work hard to end abortion. See Silent No More Awareness and Rachel’s Vineyard and find out why men and women truly regret our abortions.

Also, please read this compelling account about celebrity abortions by Kevin Burke, co-founder of Rachel’s Vineyard. Also read RECALL ABORTION by Priests for Life Executive Director, Janet Morana. After reading one or both please ask yourself these questions:

1. Why must a woman choose between health, safety and security or abortion?
2. How can taking an innocent life save a life?
3. Does the truth really matter?

“Have I now become your enemy because I am telling you the truth?” Galatians 4:16 NLT

Let’s pray for America to end abortion and return to God.

Two Diametrically Opposed Videos

Friday, July 7th, 2017
Click image to enlarge

Click image to enlarge

“Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always reap what you sow.”
Galatians 6:7 NLT

Please review these 2 short videos.

1. Bless This House – I sing this song learned in my childhood when I visit pregnancy care centers across the country and around the world. The PCCs are the real providers of women’s health care; with no abortions, they often provide free pregnancy tests, free access and referrals to prolife doctors, life building skills, empowerment and much more. Watch “Alveda” on Vimeo or YouTube.

2. Faith Leaders Stand With Planned Parenthood – Never once do these people in this video admit that Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion provider and are thereby responsible for millions of legal abortions, which are crimes against the humanity of babies in the womb, as well as numerous reported and unreported botched abortions resulting in death and chronic illness to women. Abortion is the #1 Killer of human beings. However, they do mention providing free condoms, yet neglect to point out that easy access to condoms for minors often promotes blanket promiscuity. One can only wonder who is footing the bill for the pastors’ support?

Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once said:
“The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Is Sanger’s Planned Parenthood promoting ads from anti-life ministers in an effort to hide her true motives—racial genocide? Obviously Sanger feared that if her belief were to spread that the goal of the Negro Project (that markets tubal ligation as well as vasectomies to unsuspecting Blacks) was to “exterminate the Negro population” it would hinder her true eugenic objective: the extermination of the subset of the black population that she considered “degenerate.”

3. Is the truth being withheld from the American people? Are women and minorities being sold a bill of goods regarding the truth behind abortion and harmful contraceptives? Are women being punished and maligned for choosing life? Are political leaders’ voices muted by a rabid abortion lobby? Are faith leaders on the side of truth or the lie that abortions and contraceptives are of God? Are we truly the one human race/one blood of Acts 17:26? You be the judge. Of course God is the final authority on the subject.

Fr. Pavone Applauds Ohio Senate for Approving Anti-Dismemberment Bill

Friday, June 30th, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 29, 2017

347-286-7277

Staten Island, NY – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today praised the Ohio Senate for overwhelmingly passing a bill to protect unborn babies from dismemberment abortions.

“The Ohio Senate has taken action to stop what is nothing less than the brutal torture of babies in the womb,” said Fr. Pavone. “There is no way for the abortion lobby to sugar coat dismemberment abortion – ripping the arms, legs, and head from a living person’s body is unspeakably cruel and sadistic. No civilized society should tolerate it.”

Ohio’s State Senate voted 24 to 9 to approve and send to the State House S.B. 145, a bill that would stop abortions where cutting and grasping tools are used to dismember unborn babies, after which the children’s severed body parts are removed, piece by piece, from their mothers. The House is expected to consider the bill in the fall when the Ohio legislature returns from its summer recess.

“The abortion lobby hates bills like Ohio’s anti-dismemberment legislation because such measures expose what abortion really is,” added Fr. Pavone. “Abortion is not health care. It’s barbarism. And the sooner America hears or sees what abortion entails, the sooner America will reject it.”

Priests for Life is making a major priority out of promoting these protective laws across the nation, and challenging candidates for public office both on the state and federal levels to state clearly their position as to whether the law should allow babies to be dismembered. Fr. Pavone concluded, “All Ohio residents, before casting a vote, should know where candidates stand on this fundamental question.”

Baby or Biohazard Waste?

Monday, June 26th, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: June 26, 2017

347-286-7277

ALBUQUERQUE — Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life have released another video in their ongoing series to expose late-term abortion in America. This latest undercover recording exposes how the late-term abortion facility Southwestern Women’s Options arbitrarily differentiates between a baby and biohazard waste when discussing the disposal of the remains of babies terminated at their facility.

Listen to the recording here.

Southwestern Women’s Options tells a woman posing as 33 weeks pregnant that they have a working relationship with Riverside Funeral Home, which will come to the abortion facility and collect the baby remains for cremation after the abortion. Staffers at both the funeral home and the abortion facility refer to the dead unborn children as “babies.”

However, the option to cremate the remains only applies to disabled babies. When another woman, 25 weeks pregnant, inquires about what happens to her healthy baby after her abortion, she is told that the remains are considered biohazard waste and the whole baby is incinerated.

“To think that Southwestern Women’s Options is pitching cremation to women seeking late-term abortions in order to somehow buffer killing disabled babies while the other babies are incinerated as biohazard waste is schizophrenic,” said Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico. “Cremation, by definition, refers to what is done to a dead person’s body. It’s imperative that we, our leaders and every sane person speak out and act on behalf of these human babies who are being brutally killed each day in New Mexico.”

For more than 44 years in America, abortion profiteers and their supporters in politics and the media have insisted that abortion does not kill babies. This has resulted in over 60 million lives being terminated in American abortion businesses.

But as the abortionists themselves at Southwestern Women’s Options admit, they are killing babies even in the latest stages of pregnancy.

“Anyone with a conscience will be horrified by these recordings,” said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “They speak of fingerprints, toe-prints, baby clothes, photos, and funeral homes. These are things associated with human beings, and children who — once they’re born — we all agree should be protected. What is revealed here is an ongoing prejudice, discrimination, and oppression towards the children in the womb, and it must end.”

Listen to notorious late term abortionist and owner of Southwestern Women’s Options, Curtis Boyd’s, candid admission with reporters here: Abortion doctor: ‘Am I killing? Yes, I am’

Life and Death in New Mexico: Abortionists Set the Arbitrary Standard

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

priests_for_life_logo_transparent

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: June 15, 2017

347-286-7277

Abortion Free New Mexico is working with Priests for Life to raise national awareness about late-term abortion.

ALBUQUERQUE – In part four of a six-part series documenting late-term abortion in New Mexico, Abortion Free New Mexico (AFNM) takes a look at Southwestern Women’s Options, the nation’s largest late-term abortion facility.

Southwestern Women’s Options advertises on its website that elective abortions are available through 28 weeks with “Later Abortion for Maternal and Fetal Indications.”

The latest undercover recording reveals just how arbitrary the standard is for determining if babies live or die at Southwestern Women’s Options.

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement regarding the latest call:

“Once again, this undercover call reveals that abortions are taking place legally in our country even in the third trimester of pregnancy. We will continue to expose this evil in the weeks and months to come. We call on all Americans, including those who identify themselves as ‘pro-choice, to communicate to their legislators their opposition to these late-term procedures so that we can begin restoring protection to these children.”

In the first call to Southwestern, a caller posed as a woman who was pregnant with a baby who had been diagnosed with Down syndrome. Without hesitation she was given an abortion appointment, despite being 33 weeks pregnant.

In a second call, an undercover caller posed as a healthy woman pregnant with a 30-week healthy pre-born baby whom she has decided to abort because her husband lost his job.

The third calling, a minor posing as the victim of incest by an older family member is seeking a late-term abortion at 26 weeks of pregnancy. Instead of urging the sexual assault victim to contact the authorities – as required by law — the abortion clinic staff gives the young girl a phone number to the New Mexico Medicaid office so that she can obtain the $7,500 procedure for free.

The fourth call combines two earlier calls and adds new details, including that mothers so far advanced in their pregnancies should not be aborted in stand-alone clinics like Southwestern – although they are – and that the availability of third-trimester abortions depends on the “comfort” level of the abortionist.

“The bottom line is that SWO is willing to terminate a disabled child in spite of their own admission that late- term abortions shouldn’t be done in an outpatient clinic because they pose significant risks to mothers,” Mrs. Shaver said.

“The ‘comfort’ zone of the abortionists at Southwestern Women’s Options, which appear to be based on an arbitrary eugenic standard, have ultimately led them to decide which babies should live or die. Barbaric late- term abortions are rejected by the majority of the American people because viable babies are being killed, and in our latest undercover recording, the abortion workers themselves admit that late-term abortions shouldn’t be performed because they are too dangerous for the women seeking them. New Mexico abortion facilities need oversight and accountability that comes from common-sense regulations,” Mrs. Shaver said.

To Be Or Not To Be – A Fourteenth Amendment Perspective

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017
CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE

CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE

Ever since the ruling of Roe v. Wade on January 22, 1973 the debate continues. In the prolife community we remain very appreciative that President Trump is keeping his promise to defend human life in all stages. Thank you Mr. POTUS.

For anti-abortion pro-lifers, it all boils down to some very important question: Is abortion the taking of a human life? Is abortion health care or death care? Is abortion good for women or do abortions kill human mothers and their human babies?

For pro-aborts the issue is whether a woman has the right to abort the life of a preborn human being.

Recently Harvard Law student Joshua Craddock Harvard Law Journal Concludes Unborn Babies Have Constitutional Rights, addresses these issues.

In 1973 the Supreme Court used the theological examination of “when does life begin” suggesting that babies are not protected as persons under the Fourteenth Amendment. Yet, any 8th grade biology book can answer the question definitively. At the moment of conception 23 genes from the mother and 23 genes from the father unite to form a unique, very real human person.

Even pro-aborts have been acknowledging that abortions take the lives of human beings. Their contention remains that the slaughter is legally acceptable.

Justice Harry Blackmun wrote in his majority decision, “We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins. When those trained in the respective disciplines of medicine, philosophy, and theology are unable to arrive at any consensus, the judiciary, at this point in the development of man’s knowledge, is not in a position to speculate as to the answer.”

Here’s a question for the lawyers, doctors, preachers and laypeople: “The woman has a right to choose what she does with her body; but that baby is not her body. Where is the lawyer for the baby?”

Today science proves that a preborn baby is a human being from the moment of conception. The real question must now be answered: “Should preborn human beings have protection under the Fourteenth Amendment?” Craddock concludes: “They do fall under the Fourteenth Amendment’s protection.”

Acts 17:26: “And God has made from one blood every nation of [humans] to dwell on all the face of the earth…” America, we must agree with God and stop killing our babies. As a repentant post abortive mother, I find encouragement in telling the truth and shaming the devil about the harmful impact of abortion. After all, how can the dream survive abortion?

It’s a blessing to have a President in the White House who is swinging the pendulum back in the direction of dignity for all human life; from the womb to the tomb. Maybe now we can finally stem the abortion scourge, and correct a wrong that cost nearly sixty million babies their lives in America and countless around the globe. America, pray. Return to God.
