What It Means To Be Pro-Life

before-i-formed-you-in-the-womb-i-knew-you

What does it mean to be Pro-Life? That should be an easy answer, but apparently it’s not for many people in Society. Even in the Pro-Life movement it is not an easy answer.

 
Yesterday the 20-week pain capable ban was introduced in the United States Senate. Truthfully, once again I am infuriated and appalled with how our leaders value life.

 
Reading an article today on Lifesitenews.com by Dustin Siggins. GOP Presidental Candidate Lindsey Gram, a Republican Senator from South Carolina, introduced the bill.  During a Press Conference, Senator Gram said that he would save late-term unborn children in a “fair way.”  Senator Gram has always had exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother. He went on to say that in the situation of rape, He was going to leave that to the family, to the mother. Also in the article it mentions that Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser, mentions that with the rape exception in the bill they found their sweet spot. Thinking about what Senator Gram said about saving unborn children in a “fair way”.  When you say, something like Senator Gram said, that should be meaning you treat them all the same. That is what being fair is. You should not leave anyone out. Some of the other thoughts that I have when I read the article is when Marjorie Dannenfelser mention the sweet spot. What went through my mind is Really? Since when did rape conceived babies and babies conceived in incest become candy shop of the Pro-Life Movement.

 

 

Reading about what Senator Gram said during the Press Conference about leaving the situation of rape to the family, to the mother.  Does he even know what can happen when you leave it to the family?  I have read the stories of where women tell their families that they were raped. Their families don’t believe them and will take them to have a force abortion.  Not that long ago on Lifesitenews.com I read an article where a family beat the 14-year-old to force an abortion. She did miscarry, and they grilled the baby’s body. These are the types of things that go on.
When you have the exceptions for rape and incest, it is saying that babies conceived in rape and incest their lives are worthless and not of value. It is dehumanizing a group of people. Ever since 1966 when the state of Mississippi legalized abortion only in cases of rape and incest, babies conceived in rape and incest have been the target. These precious babies have been thrown under the bus, been left in the burning building, and now their the candy shop of the Pro-Life Movement. The Pro-Life Movement says they want to save the unborn, but they continue to leave a group out.  Let me say it this way. The Pro-Life movement does not like those conceived in rape/incest. Whenever there are Pro-Life Bills being voted on and when those conceived in rape/incest speak up they are silenced. It is very disrespectful and humiliating to silence those that are conceived in rape/incest when they are speaking up for those who can’t speak for themselves.

 

 

Will the Pro-Life movement ever change and no longer have exceptions in their bills? I really don’t know, but what I do know is that there are many women who have been raped and their children are speaking up and saying enough is enough. They are taking a stand against the shame that has been placed on them.

 
So what does it mean to be Pro-Life?  Let me first share my personal story.  I was conceived in rape, and my birth mother chose life for me and made the selfless decision and placed me for adoption. I also had a biological great-aunt who could have arranged for my birth mother to have an illegal abortion. I am thankful that I also had the law to protect me. Since I was conceived in rape, should I be the one that had to pay for the crime that my birth father did? I don’t think I should be the one.  God is the creator of life and the taker of life.  Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV) “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”  Psalms 139:15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Since God knew me before I was formed in the womb of my birth mother. Would you think that God knew how my conception would come to be before he even created me? I know he did.

 
Being Pro-Life means that every life is respected and valued. It is to be held at the highest esteem that there is. Being Pro-Life is knowing that conception of the unborn baby does not matter. Let me say that if people are doing things against the Word of God that falls on them. The unborn baby is innocent.  Being Pro-Life means you know that God is the Creator of Life and that God is the only one that has the right to take life. Being Pro-Life also means making sure that every life is protected. Being Pro-Life is also giving respect to the mothers who were raped and their children.

 
In our Declaration of Independence it says that All men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain Unalienable Rights and those also consist of the Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Ultrasounds Saves Lives

3d-ultrasound-cost

When my birthmother was pregnant with me they did not have ultrasounds, but yet she knew that there was life growing inside of her. A life given by God. God is the creator of Life and Life should be respected and valued. In Matthew 10:31 it says, “Fear ye not, therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” To God, we are more valuable than the birds of the air.

 

In the world that we live in today medical technology keeps advancing. Today we have the ultrasound. Ultrasounds are used for many things. In today’s world when a woman is pregnant an ultrasound will show a picture of the baby and can also determine whether if the baby is a boy or girl. We also live in a world where babies are killed every minute through abortion. Planned Parenthood is against ultrasounds. Why? Because they are afraid that is they show the woman the ultrasound the woman will change her mind. Planned Parenthood likes women to think that it is not a baby but a blob of tissue.

 
Recently I read an article on Live Action News by Sarah Terzo about a woman who went to Planned Parenthood had an ultrasound, but Planned Parenthood would not allow her to see the ultrasound. Later the woman went to a Pregnancy Resource Center and was given a free ultrasound and when she saw the sonogram of her baby she changed her mind and decided to have the baby instead of having the abortion.

 
I am 100% Pro-Life with no exceptions. I believe that Planned Parenthood should be required to show their patients the ultrasound. With the world that we live in and in the Pro-Abortion movement, so many people think that it is just a blob of tissue and think that the fetus does not breathe until they are born. How do I know that? I have had that conversation with the pro-aborts. The baby does breathe in the womb. The Baby is using the lungs to breathe in amniotic fluid.  Women need to know that it’s a baby and not a blob of tissue, and they need to know that the baby is alive in the womb.

 
I am thankful that we have the technology of ultrasound. When a woman sees the ultrasound, she will most likely change her mind and have the baby. Ultrasounds changes minds and saves lives.

17 Years Old And Received A Prophetic Word

message-from-god

At the age of 17 years old at my home church in Minneapolis, MN I was praying at the Altar and someone prayed for me and told me that God was going to use me greatly to help birth many new babies into his kingdom. At that time, I did not really understand what that meant, and I did not know anything about knowing I was conceived in rape and saved from an illegal abortion.

 

God has a timetable for everything. I did not find out about that until many years later. I never shared the story with anyone until last August when God opened the door for me to start sharing it. I have shared it and people have seen it all over the world, and it has hit a few websites not that long ago.

 

I remember my Pastor telling me not that long ago this is going to get big. I believe it.  Lately, I felt to have it translated into another language. God has opened the door for me to have it translated into Spanish.

 

Once it is translated, I am sure that it will hit websites in Spanish.

 

Over the last couple of days, God has been really giving me a burden for the country of Africa. I know that rape is accepted over there and it sad. I won’t really know as to where that is going to go until I talk with my Pastor, who has been over to Africa. I also know that there is someone over in Africa who has told me that it’s now my time. I believe it.

 

I know what I am doing is only going to get bigger, and that prophetic word that I was given at the age of 17 is coming true.

What About Adoption?

adoption2I am going to talk about adoption I have not done that in awhile. We live in a world where abortion happens all the time.

Since I am ProLife with no exceptions, abortion is out of the question. In the Pro-Choice world, they say that abortion is safe. Abortion is never safe. Someone is always being killed.

What about adoption? Adoption is a safer option and its a loving choice. I am with a few adoption groups on Facebook, and they make adoption as being a bad thing and I know why. There are adoptee’s who have had negative experiences with adoption. I want to add no parent is perfect, and no child is perfect. My life was blessed by adoption. I am the adoptee. I always knew I was adopted.  Does being adopted bother me? Not at all.  Would life be different if I were born into my family? No. Do I think about what my life would have been if I were not adopted? I don’t think about it, but I do know that it would have been different.

When I talk about adoption, I always say that Adoption saves lives. It saved mine. I also say that Love goes deeper than blood.  Adoption in today’s world is different than when I was adopted. The adoptions back when I was born where more “Closed” and in today’s world they are more “Open”. Today the birth mother likes to choose who will be her baby’s parents.

My birth mother is a strong woman she allowed God to choose my parents, and she placed me in God’s hands and she is a hero in my life.  If it were me in my birthmother’s situation, I would want to know about my baby so I would have chosen open adoption.

Adoption is a life-saving option. There are couples out there that can’t have children and are praying for a baby. Adoption gives babies and children who can’t be cared for by the natural parents the gift of a family.
