Standing up for life.

Last night while reading some articles on Facebook and all of the articles are on prolife issues. I am connected with a group I Am Pro-life and they had posted an article frome the article is about a Pastor who would never preach about a topic from the pulpit, but he has since changed his mind. Well of course I had to respond to that.

A few years ago while on the way to church my husband and I saw several Pro-life people standing around holding signs and when we got to church I was talking with someone and I was telling the about what we saw. They told me well we don’t do that and they also told me that we don’t talk about controversial issues. I didn’t say anything, but it really upset me since they knew my story. Standing up for the unborn and speaking against abortion is not being controversial. It is being obedient to the word of God.  The Bible says in Proverbs 31:8 (NIV) Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,  for the rights of all who are destitute.

Adoption God’s idea

Growing up my parents would read both to my brother and I books and explain to us that we both were adopted. So at a very young age I knew I was adopted.  For me growing up it really was no different. We were a family. We had our moments like all families do.

It makes me sad when I read stories by other adoptees who were mistreated by their adoptive parents. We live in a very negative society. How often do we hear something positive anymore? Not very often. It breaks my heart when there are about 1.25 million abortions and 1.5 million people waiting to adopt. My Birthmother chose adoption for me because of her circumstances and she knew that there where couples out there who could not have children. When she decided to place me she wanted me placed in a strong christian home.  God was faithful to that request.

Growing up in a christian home we learned about Jesus and reading in the bible about the spirit of adoption. Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.  I love how Adoption was God’s idea first and that I can relate very well with Romans 8:15 because I am adopted legally.

We are so special to God that he came to earth put on flesh and paid the price and now we can call him daddy. My parents paid a price and I became legally theirs and from the first moments that I could talk I called them mommy and daddy.

Speaking for those with silent cries

Proverbs 31:8 NIV

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.

While having my morning coffee, the thought A voice that is crying, but is silent came to my mind. Yes there is a voice that is silent, but there is an army of people who are rising up and being their voice and speaking out to be the voice that is crying out. The army that is rising up are the voices of Mothers who conceived through rape, children that were conceived in rape, grandmothers of grandchildren conceived in rape, husbands whose wives were conceived in rape and also wives whose husbands were conceived in rape.

Recently a friend of mine testified before the New Mexico house committee to speak out in support of HB 390 Late-term Abortion Ban — without the rape exception.  She was bullied by Republican Representative Rod Montoya who told her to be quiet.  As I continued the past few days to read about what is going on in New Mexico and other states it breaks my heart, but at the same time I have seen this army binding together like never before. Different ministries working in different areas to be a voice. A few of the ministries that I see hard at work are  founded by Rebecca Kiessling and founded by Juda Myers and Living Exceptions founded by women who were conceived in rape.

A lot of  our pro-life laws have the exceptions conceived in rape, incest and special needs in them. I don’t understand why. Society likes to put stereotypes on people. Society will say that babies that are conceived in rape are a product of rape, a demon seed. I know that none of these are true.  When I hear the product of rape I have a saying that goes like this. My adoptive parents did not go to the local store and pick me off a shelf, they went to the foster care home and loved me from the moment they saw me.

As for being called a demon seed that is not true either because Genesis 1:27 says So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.  Also in Jeremiah 1:5 it says Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

Another one that society likes to say is that children conceived in rape will end up like the rapist. Wrong again! I turned out to be a lot like my adoptive mother and my birth mother. I know them both so I can tell the difference. I remember when I met my birth mother my parents where with me and my mom saw my birth mom doing something and told me I do the same thing.

Since last August when I started to share my story, I have come to believe that it will be this army of people who God is using to over turn the holocaust of the unborn in our nation. Why do I believe this, because in 1966 Mississippi became the first state to legalize abortion only in cases of rape. Also Roe V Wade  Norma Mccorvey who is known as Jane Roe in Roe v Wade had lied to say she was raped to be able to have a stronger case to have an abortion.  The more that speak up and stand with us and with God’s help we will see laws changed and All life protected.

What matters  is that God created each and every one of us for a purpose. The circumstances regarding my conception do not matter,  what matters is that God knew me before I was born and how my conception would happen and since he is the only one that gives life he is the only one that can take it away.




God’s Timing

It was on August 3rd, 2014 that I had the priviledge to talk with my Pastor for a couple of minutes. I told him that I had found my birth mother and that she was raped and that her aunt wanted her to have an illegal abortion since it was before Roe V Wade and could have arranged it.  My Pastor left on the 4th to go to Africa for about a 3 week missions trip. The very next Sunday Morning one of the Pastor’s Sons got upand preached a message titled “When our mess becomes God’s Message.” He then went on to say that there are alot of people here and the devil likes to use abortion to kill and destory and said there maybe someone here that your parents may have thought about aborting you but they didn’t. In that very moment God spoke to me and told me that I needed to tell it and that I needed to share it.
