was so happy to hear the Susan G. Komen organization pulled their planned parenthood funding. they got alot of bad press on the news because of it and now it looks like they gave in and reinstated it. another glaring example of what the media can do. it makes me ill to see how far we have gone down this road. question -- how can we seriously justify punishing child abusers if we say that abuse is criminal but to murder an unborn child is legal?

are you also aware that one in three women in the Church pews every Sunday Mass have aborted at least once - some multiple times? Our priests need to speak out against the culture of death from the pulpit!

Don't begin today with the broken pieces of yesterday.

I read an article today that stated only 1 in 7 obgyn's perform abortions.

www.medpagetoday.com/OBGYN/GeneralOB
GY
N/28173


Not surprising religion of the doctor did make a difference.
The sad thought is that the religion that was most likely to provide an abortion was Jewish.
I don't know why my mind popped to the Holocaust, but it did. I find it tragic that a people so closely linked to being victims of disrespect for life - now are in this position.

I ask for you to join me in prayer:

Dear God our Father, watch over the physicians in the world as they attempt to heal and help their patients. Please allow their hearts to consider unborn children to also be their patients. May each doctor in your care have strenght to allow their patients to hear options, including the power of living and giving life. We ask your blessing on all that heal and we ask that your Spirit may be praised in the path of good outcomes. We ask this in the name of the great healer, your son, Jesus.

part 3 of Irrefutable witnesses
Prolife activists conceived by rape article

Juda Myers

Prolife speaker Juda Myers is also a singer /songwriter,artist,author,wife and mother of two sons, and lives in the Houston area. She was adopted in early infancy by a loving childless coupe; nonetheless, she was eager to find her birth mother. In 2003, she cained access to her adoption record, but "excitement soon turned to horror," Juda recalled in her online testimony.
She plunges into a deep depression upon discovering that in 1956, her birth mother, ann, was raped by a group of eight men as she walked home from a movie theater one night. In er videotaped testimony, Ann disclosed, "My parents didn't want me to have the baby, let alone keep [her]. But i didn't believe in destroying her, so i had her and they forced me to give her up."
On the following day, Juda's life was transformed when someone who knew nothing of her story, told her,"... I know that God knew you before you were ever conceived." " At that moment...I knewthat...God Himself had a reason for my life," she explained.
Juda was finally able to meet ann in 2005. "She had been praying for 48 years that God would return me to her," Juda said. At that first meeting, ann told her, "I've forgiven those men, and look what God has done. He's brought you back to me. God is faithful!"
Inspired by her birth mother's example, Juda uses her pro-liffe Christian outreach, Juda Myers Freedom Ministries (www.juda4praise.com), to stress the joy and freedom resulting from forgiveness.
Besides promoting adoption as the compassionate choice for women in pregnancies resulting from rape, the ministry's message "is about being able to forgive those who hurt you, because when we can get over that hurt, then we can experience life to the fullest," she said." I also speak out for the children, my peers who didn't make it. I tell mothers who have aborted that these babies would forgive them...If [Jesus Christ] could forgive me for my sins, He could forgive all the mothers who felt the only choice they had was abortion."

Irrefutable Witnesses-Prolife activists conceived by rape, by Stephanie Longo

Rebecca Kiessling
Rebecca Kiessling, a family law attorney and pro-life speaker residing in the Detroit are,uses her life story to advocate against abortion and promote adoption. She herself is the mother of two adoptive and three biological children.
rebecca was born three years before Roe v. wade and Doe v. bolton decriminalized abortion in the U.S. Though adopted in early infancy,now she also enjoys a close relationship with her birth mother, Joann, whom she met at age 18. Before their first face to face meeting, Joann told Rebecca how her life began: One night, while walking to a nearby grocery store, a knife- wielding rapist jumped out from behind the bushes and dragged Joann to a nearby field.
Later, Joann admitted to rebecca that, had abortion been decriminalized at that time,she would have had her aborted, and that she backed out of two chances for a back-alley abortion-due to fear for her own safety. "Six years after we met, she said she changed her mind about (abortion) and is so thankful today that she couldn't abort me," Rebecca said. Rebecca stated on he web site(www.rebeccakiessling.com)
. "The fact that I'm alive today has to do with...people who fought to ensure abortion was illegal in Michigan at the time...even in cases of rape, people who argued to protect my life."
"after learning my story...I felt like screaming out in the streets,' I have value; my life is worth something!" Rebecca recalled. She discovered her true worth when she came to know Jesus Christ and began sharing her story with others. "My value and identity are not established as a 'product of rape,' but a child of God," she said in her online testimony.
Rebecca also help others who were conceived by rape tell their stories. She commented," On my web site, I have dozens of stories of people who were conceived through rape or who became pregnant out of rape, and there is one underlying theme: They all love life."

posting from march/April Celebrate Life Magazine

Irrefutable Witnesses-Prolife activists conceived by rape, by Stephanie Longo

According to Guttmacher Institute's latest statistics, in 2008, approximately 1.21 million preborn babies were killed by abortion, about 10,500-15,000 of whom were conceived by rape or incest. even more tragic is the fact that many who claim to be prolife accept the conventional"wisdom" that such babies should be aborted.
The following pro-life activists-themselves conceived through rape-arepowerful living proof of why the pro-life movement must insist on total protection for all babies,without exception, from the moment of their creation, and the reality that God can bring forth miracles from the most horrendous circumstances.

Ryan Scott Bomberger
Ryan Scott Bomberger is chief creative officer of the Atlanta-based Radiance Foundation(www.theradiancefoundation.org), which he co-founded in 2009 with his wif,Bethany, who serves as executive director. Radiance promotes respect for life, adoption and racial reconciliation through multiple forms of media, public speaking and community outreach. Since 2010, its "Too Many Aborted" project has erected large billboards in Georgia, Wisconsin and California, calling attention to the abortion industry's genocidal targeting of black babies-and thereby provoking a nationwide"mainstream"media frenzy.
Ryan and Bethany no have four children, one of whom they recently adopted. Born in 1971, Ryan himself was adopted as an infant and raised i a family of 13 children, 10 of whom are adoptees. During an argument he had with his adoptive mother at age 13, ryan learned that his birth mother had been raped. "it was devastating to have the origin of your life rewritten in a matter of seconds," he recalled.
Ryan earned a master's degree in communications from Virginia's regent University in 1997. When asked to speak at a graduation ceremony, he shared his life story with alarge audience for the first time. "people were crying,"he recalled. "I realized...that I should be out there as a champion not just for the unborn but also for the birth mothers so they can make better choices for themselves."
At that time, Ryan also started searching for his birth mother, to thank her for giving him life, but hasn't been able to locate her thus far. Besides being well versed in media production of all kinds, public speaking and youth menotring, Ryan is a singer /songwriter. So, to honor his mother and all women who have chosen life for their babies in difficult circumstances, he wrote and recorded the song "Meant to Be." "That is my only hope in connecting with her, so she knows that from all the pain she went through, something beautiful came out of it. There is as part of the song that says, 'And now I can love and be loved all because of you.' That, to me, sums it all up.

* I will be posting 3 more amazing stories from this article .
God has blessed us with life.

I just read a personal sparkmail from one of our teamleaders.

I want to stand corrected if my position seemed like it was the groups that needed to bend rather than me. My words were an attempt to "put it out there" in the concept of James 5:16 -

Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

I'm really having a hard time with the new team name. The original name made reference to the body as a temple. This was so helpful to me as I saw my journey to having a healthy body, as being in line with my spiritual life. It was by far my favorite...fired up had the two thought pattern of being spirited in gaining health, being Spirited via our Holy Spirit.

Trust me I've consider the two concepts of the new name - being healthy is being pro our life and a group the is Pro-Life.

I grew up in a church that would nearly weekly talk about anti-abortion. This was probably because this was the time span of Roe vs. Wade. It wasn't wonderful because as a preteen. It didn't understand how babies were made, let alone what abortion was.... Parents???
I was very "injured" by going to school (1971, R vs W was 1973) and having the debate continue there with me stating abortion was wrong, but being very ill prepared to defend the position. Once a teacher asked me to state my side (with hindsight she was being very fair), but at the time it was traumatic because I realized I didn't even know what abortion was, or why I was saying that...

Every time I see the title of this group I feel like staying away because of feeling so stabbed in the back by parents and a church that so poorly prepared me to understand. Rather that helping me be holy, due to lack of information, I was embarrassed about my religion. So for me personally I find it very hard to be "fired up" and "pro-life" in the same thought.

Which is not to say I don't value life in all modes - any one that knows me well, will know that my actions are works that support.

That being said, just understand, one of the ways I move on is to admit where I'm having a problem. So the fact that the name is too controversial for MY history, doesn't not negate the wonderful spirit/Spirit and support that I find here. Just thought I'd share, to try to start addressing the sting I feel on this. In the meantime, my eyes will read Fired up Catholics for LIFE - which for me has three thoughts a) life time commitment b) upholding all life coming from God c) fired up for my life.

from Fr. Frank Povone's email today(priests for life):

No matter how heavy a cross God is asking you to carry, your troubles are small when compared with those that an unborn child faces every day.

Thatís because, in America today, the most dangerous place for a child to be is inside his motherís womb. The numbers confirm this:

Abortions kill roughly one out of every four babies conceived.
Abortionists will kill over a million babies this year.
Over 3,000 of those babies will be killed today alone Ö with Planned Parenthood killing a third of them, and using your tax dollars to do so.
And perhaps most shocking of all ..
Ö by the time you finish reading this email, three innocent children will
have been killed in a legal abortion here in the United States.

DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD PRAYER:

Lord of Life and Truth,
Your Providence guides the course of history.
You have conquered death
And have made us the People of Life.
You call us to fight the evil of abortion
And the forces that promote it.
We therefore ask you to grant wisdom and mercy to our nation.
Give our government leaders the courage
To put an end to the funding
Of the largest abortion business in the world.
Give all of us the courage to insist
That public funding only be used
For the protection and promotion of life
Rather than for its destruction.
Give us hopeful hearts and joyful spirits
As we continue to proclaim, celebrate, and serve
The Gospel of Life.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
