Conjoined Twins Safely Separated, Almost Became Abortion Victims

Conjoined Twins Safely Separated, Almost Became Abortion Victims
Emmett and Owen Ezell were born last month in Dallas, Texas but they were very much unlike most sets of twins. They were are identical twins[1] joined in utero — a rare phenomenon that happens in as many as 1 in 200,000 births.

About half of such twins are stillborn, but Owen and Emmett survived not only the birthing process — their mother rejected abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/08/30/conjoined-twins-safely-separated-almost-became-abortion-victims/

How to talk your girlfriend into having an abortion: A slimeball explains.

How to talk your girlfriend into having an abortion: A slimeball explains.

Cassy Fiano Thu Aug 29 14:36 EST Opinion
Abortion advocates like to phrase the ongoing legal battles over abortion as a “war on women”, but is it really? Most women don’t identify as pro-abortion. At least half of all American women, if not slightly more than half, are pro-life. Abortion is in no way an issue where all women walk in lockstep. And really, is it women who benefit most from abortion being free and legal on demand? Hardly. The people who have the most to gain from keeping abortion legal at all times are slimeball men.

Abortion is a perfect tool for them to use in order to use women for sex whenever they want, and avoid any potential consequences or repercussions for their actions. The only person who has to do anything is the woman. The slimeball doesn’t have to undergo an invasive medical procedure, after all. He doesn’t have to deal with the many physical and emotional risks that come with abortion. That all falls onto the woman’s shoulders. Abortion is an easy way out for him.

“You should sound as sincere as possible and tell her that you want her to be the mother of your children one day, but that now is not the right time.”

 

Why I am A Young, Black Woman Who is Proudly Pro-Life on Abortion

Why I am A Young, Black Woman Who is Proudly Pro-Life on Abortion
In high school I dreamed I’d be like Oprah. When I got a career, I imagined it’d be something cool like a talk show host. In college I embraced reality and thought a teacher might be a wiser choice. When I envisioned my future, I never thought I’d spend eight years of my life as a pro-life activist. Trust me when I say that wasn’t on my radar.

The Stranger

When I was in my mid-twenties, my mom told me a story she’d kept secret all my life. The tale was about a mysterious janitor who approached her in the hospital with eyes like pools of water. She looked at my mom, sitting there scared in her white gown, waiting to head into her appointment with the abortionist. The elderly lady with the mop lifted her chin and said, “Do you want to have this baby?” My mom said “yes.” After arguing with the doctor who insisted she go through with it, my mom walked out of that hospital. The stranger was nowhere to be found. Before my mom told me I was almost aborted, she said, “Before you were born I met an angel.”

The Prophet

There’s no one on this planet who’s influenced me more in my stand for life than Lou Engle. He was the first person I met who spoke about abortion and birth control. I was a student at a secular Connecticut college. I heard him speak at a church near my campus. His message was full of passion, fire, and a longing for justice. He was calling for a movement of young people to pray and fast for the ending of abortion. Little did I know that a few years later I’d follow Lou and a company of others to D.C. to pray daily in front of the Supreme Court. The prayers we uttered years ago are joined today by the faithful Bound4Lifers who have never left the Court and refuse to stop praying.

Black Pro-Life Senator Not Invited to Speak at March on Washington

Black Pro-Life Senator Not Invited to Speak at March on Washington
Senator Tim Scott is not on only the only black Republican member of Congress, he’s the only black member of the U.S. Senate of either party.

However, organizers of the March on Washington to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s. famous “I Have a Dream” speech declined to invite the unabashedly pro-life lawmakers to participate.

Scott is a staunch pro-life advocate who has a 100 percent pro-life voting record with the National Right to Life Committee. Last year, Scott voted to stop abortion funding in Obamacare, de-Fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business, and stop taxpayer funding of abortion in various instances. He voted for a ban on sex-selection abortions, for enforcing parental notification laws, to repeal Obamacare, and to ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy in the District of Columbia.

“Dehumanizing the Vulnerable: When Word Games Take Lives”

“Dehumanizing the Vulnerable: When Word Games Take Lives”

“Awakening His Mind’s Eye”

Nicholas D. SchiffBy Dave Andrusko Professor William Brennan is a pro-life scholar whose academic life’s work it’s been to illuminate the dark power of destructive language. “Dehumanizing the Vulnerable: When Word Games Take Lives” helps us understand how a witch’s brew of derogatory words mingled with degrading labels and stirred with a demeaning stamp of disapproval works to poison our attitude toward the medically vulnerable.

Thanks to highly sophisticated MRI machines the brains of these injured patients are scanned and then mapped for changes in activity. Let me quote from what researchers found after 24-year-old Daniel Rios (thought to lack “any meaningful mental life”) listened to a 40-second loop of his sister’s voice telling Daniel that “she was there with him, that she loved him.”

“Several hours afterward, two researchers, Nicholas D. Schiff and Joy Hirsch, took a look at the images from the scan. They hadn’t been sure what to expect – – Rios was among the first people in his condition to have his brain activity measured in this way – – but they certainly weren’t expecting what they saw. ’We just stared at these images,’ recalls Schiff, an expert in consciousness disorders at Weill Medical College of Cornell University.’ There didn’t seem to be anything missing.’”

As Zimmer eloquently describes it, “Even the visual centers of Rios’s brain had come alive, despite the fact that his eyes were covered. It was as if his sister’s words awakened his mind’s eye.” Zimmer likens these scans to “eavesdropping” on the patients’ inner worlds. “’It’s free speech for people who have no speech,’ Hirsch says.”

Planned Parenthood’s REAL business model

Dear Friend,

For Planned Parenthood, making a lot of money off abortion is one thing – but if you’re going to groom your customers for abortion, you’ve got to start somewhere.  And if you think Planned Parenthood is going to let concerned parents get in the way of their revenue stream, think again.

Remember the phrase “sex sells”?  It’s never been truer than with Planned Parenthood.

We young people are savvy to when companies try this.  We have a sharp eye for hucksters.  Yet somehow, too many of us can’t see through the gigantic snake-oil push coming out of Planned Parenthood.

“Hook ’em young, sell forever.”
See, when teenagers are having casual sex, Planned Parenthood makes money.  It makes money selling condoms for men, makes money selling birth control pills for women, and makes money testing boys and girls both for STDs.  All while pushing teenagers into the mentality that casual sex is the norm, thus making them repeat customers.

Think about this: if an oil company told you that you have a “right” to a car that requires oil to run, wouldn’t you become suspicious?  How about if a cell phone company encourages you to exercise your “right” to communicate in a way that only that company’s phones are capable of?

So how about when a company that sells contraceptives, STD testing, and abortions promotes behavior that requires contraceptives, STD testing, and abortions?

That’s Planned Parenthood.  It’s a business.  It is selling something.

Oh, and by the way?  Planned Parenthood also gets hundreds of millions of dollars in forced taxpayer money.  Your money.

Parents, do you think a billion-dollar abortion corporation should get public money to make sex-customers out of your kids?  And teens, should you be forced to send a slice of your very first paychecks to an industry that sees you as nothing but a big dollar sign?

The folks at Planned Parenthood might deck their advertisements with smiling female faces, but remember: they’re a business.  They’ve got a bunch of Mad Men behind the scenes, working round the clock to figure out how best to sell contraception and abortion.  Don’t doubt it for a second.

And if girls are killed?  If voiceless children are destroyed?  If men are encouraged to view women as sex objects, and if consequent abuses go unreported?  Why would those Mad Men care?  Why would Planned Parenthood care?  It’s not like it’s their kids – and they just made a lot of money!

An abortion corporation with an eye for nothing but cash – ahead of girls’ safety, ahead of men’s respect for women, and ahead of children’s lives – doesn’t deserve a cent from our taxes.  Heck, it doesn’t deserve to exist.

So let’s work on both.  First we defund Planned Parenthood, and then we bring it down.  For our children…and for our grandchildren, too.

Yours in the fight for life,
