Next Abortion Fight is Here

Today Judge Lee Yeakel will hear arguments on whether or not to postpone the Texas abortion bill HB 2. If the judge decides in Planned Parenthood’s favor then Attorney General Abbott will immediately appeal to the 5th circuit court which has traditionally been more conservative. Please be in prayer that this ends quickly without the postponement that women and the pre-born may be saved.

40 Days for Life Victory

This letter was published in yesterday’s 40 Days for life update. So proud of all those participating and standing for women and children.

My friend had left me the use of her apartment as she was away … perfect because it was right where the clinic was!

The next day, I saw you people lining up with signs … I watched from the window every day and all day you were there! Different folks each time.

I had this idea in my head that abortion picketers were extremists … no “normal” person would do that sort of thing. Yet you did not look extreme … more ordinary.

Tuesday was my pre-procedure appointment. Used the wrong entrance and had to walk past you. So what, I thought. Who cares? They don’t know me or where I am going. As I walked past (hurriedly!), my legs felt like they weighed a ton. What was going on? Are these people intimidating me? Do I need to feel ashamed as I walk past? The receptionist told me to “ignore them” when I asked about you.

Every day I watched you. One day I thought for sure no one would be there. Weather forecast was calling for severe winds and rain. There in the afternoon, amid strong winds which were blowing the signs over the head and onto the grass, you stood. Three or four together. All day!

The next day I took a walk and followed you in the direction where everyone seemed to go. It was a church. After everyone left, I went inside and saw all the signs, flyer. Impressive set-up, I thought. They seem organized in their purpose!

On Friday was my scheduled appointment for my procedure. I was suddenly terrified of what was to be. My heart was almost beating out of my chest.

My boyfriend, who had promised to come the day before, did not show up to take me. Said he was tied up and that ultimately it was my choice to have it that day or wait til next week. My choice. But he’s not there to hold my hand! Lots of weighing pros and cons.

Anyhow, I want to let you know that I decided to keep my baby. The boyfriend is still a distance away but maybe he needs time to come around and see the big picture.

The reason I decided to leave you this note is to tell you that what you did was good. I felt I owed it to you for all the days you stood there in hope that others would take notice. I noticed – and in turn it gave me hope that others I know would also care to “stand for me.”

It’s a crazy world we live in … but some seem to know how to see the good in it.

Thanks!

What are your thoughts on Pope Francis’ latest comments?

Pope Francis has been in the news a lot lately for his comments. The media seems to be taking them as a progressive move for the Catholic Church. Others say that the Pope is being taken out of context.

I’m not Catholic, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on his comments.

Here are some of the most recent:

We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible. I have not spoken much about these things, and I was reprimanded for that. But when we speak about these issues, we have to talk about them in a context. The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.

 

And then the next day he said this:

“In all its phases and at every age, human life is always sacred and always of quality. And not as a matter of faith, but of reason and science!”

Pope Francis characterized abortion as a product of a “widespread mentality of profit, the ‘throwaway culture,’ which has today enslaved the hearts and minds of so many.”

So what are your thoughts on these or other comments from the Pope?

Below is a photo from Texas Alliance for Life. The closing of the the Midland, TX Planned Parenthood marks the 40th abortion mill closure of the year.

Midland, TX Planned Parenthood

Watch the Celebration Livestream!

I got back into Dallas yesterday, but it is non-stop. I’m headed to the celebration of the closing of the Planned Parenthood in Bryan/College Station, TX!

They announced that you can live stream the celebration if you’d like at http://breakthrough090713.com/live

If you’re going to be there please let me know and say hi! Not sure if I’ll have my Pro-Life Texas shirt or my ATTWN shirt.

Celebrating the Closure of the Bryan, TX Planned Parenthood

Last month the Planned Parenthood in Bryan/College Station Texas closed the doors to the death camp! This was a momentous day for the pro-life movement.

In 2004 the group 40 Days for Life was formed to pray outside that abortion mill. Today people take part in over 500 cities and 19 countries.

In 2009 Abby Johnson who managed the facility left and became a staunch pro-life activist. She now runs, And Then There Were None.

This Saturday, Sept. 7, pro-life supporters from around the world are coming to celebrate this historic closing, mourn those that were lost, and pray for the end of abortion in America.

I can’t wait to make the drive down and be with several heroes of the pro-life movement who have diligently prayed and worked for years to see this come to pass. If you’d like to join them as well please see the video for information at the Breakthrough 9/7/13 website.
