Breaking News:House Passes 20 Week Pain Capable Bill


respect-lifeWhile a lot of people are happy yesterday because the House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to stop abortions after 20 weeks, I am saddened. Why am I heart-broken by the turn of events from today? Babies before 20 weeks can still be murdered, and those conceived in Rape/Incest and those with special needs are the exceptions, and they can still be murdered. I truly am starting to lose all respect for the Pro-Life Movement. You don’t pick and choose which babies you save and which ones you don’t. All life must be valued. We know that if the Senate passes the bill that the President says he will veto the bill and I would not put that past him. If he does veto it, we need to pray and vote for a pro-life President that takes a stand for Life and Hopefully we can get Personhood Legislation in the House and Senate and passed. Personhood believes that life begins at conception and that all life must be valued.

If the President doesn’t veto the bill, this will allow for more abortions, not less. Why? Without having to report the rape, women can just lie about being raped and get the counseling that would be required before having an abortion. That is what started this whole mess over 40 years ago was because a woman lied and said she was raped so she could have an abortion. I wonder how many people know that Mississippi was the first state to legalize abortions in cases of rape in 1966.

As for me, I will continue to take a stand and fight for the unborn until all life is valued.

Picture my birth mother had in the bible all these years.

This morning waking up from sleep I was thinking about an email that I received this past Thursday after I had shared the short version of my story. The person’s response was a beautiful testimony of redemption.  I was thinking about that and my mind went to the story about Hosea. Hosea married someone who was a prostitute. Hosea loved her and she had a hard time with that and so she went back out into what she came from. It made Hosea’s heart sad, but he continued to love her and went out and bought her back.

Society looks down on women who have been raped.  It is sad that these women their own families won’t believe them and there are families that won’t even acknowledge the children. I know my birth mother went through where she could not talk about me to family. She kept a photo in her bible all these years of me and eventually the day came when she could talk about her birth daughter. God saw that many years later I would be reunited with my birth mother and know God is using both of us in different ways to share the story.

Society also looks down on the children conceived in rape. It is heartbreaking that society calls them products, evil seed, and the monsters child. It is sad that society will say that the child conceived in rape will turn out like the rapist, sad when society says that children conceived in rape are not beautiful.

Growing up I struggled with feelings of feeling worthless and when I found out I was conceived in rape I felt numb and I said ok, how do you deal with this?  What did I choose to do? The day I heard that I was conceived in rape I chose not to become angry or bitter about my birth father. Yes I was mad and very upset so I prayed. I had to pray for several days and the more I prayed I calmed down.  Over time and God using a minister in my church and a 3 part series called Conceived in Rape I-III last august on Family talk with Dr. James Dobson to have the liberty to share my story.

What society does not say is that the baby that is conceived in rape is very healing for the mother. I found it very amazing that we have a God that will use babies to bring their mothers healing. When I found out that I was the beginning of my birth mothers healing process I was amazed and told God that is so amazing you used me even before I was born to help my birth mother heal from something that is a horrible, traumatic and horrific crime.

Sitting talking with my husband today about this over lunch and he said to me our Heavenly Father could have given up on us a long time ago, but he didn’t. God wrapped himself up in flesh came to earth as a baby and grew up to die for our sins. He paid the price. He bought us back with the blood he shed on Calvary a true story of redemption.


Fearfully and wonderfully made; not damaged goods

Fruit of the womb

Last August when I started to share my story I shared it in a forum, not long after that I fell in the category that society likes to call the rape conceived an evil seed. I quickly stood up for myself and the many others that are conceived in rape.

Society looks at those conceived in rape as products, evil seeds, and will become just like the rapist.  Society likes to dehumanize those that are conceived in rape, incest and poor in utero babies. The Society also calls us damaged goods.

Not that long ago I read an article on where Delegate Brian Kurcaba of West Virginia took a stand for life and said those conceived in rape are beautiful. Thank you Delegate Brian Kurcaba for standing up for me and the many others that are conceived in rape.

When I found out I was conceived in rape, I questioned God, Why?  The still small voice in my heart and also from the word of God says in Jeremiah 1:5 “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.” (NIV) I continued to feel in my spirit to not worry about the circumstances and to allow God to use me for such a time as this. I allow God to use me to be a light and share the truth that all people are created in his image, and no one is damaged goods in God’s eyes. We are all created in his image to worship him, to have a relationship with him and he fearfully and wonderfully made us. Psalms 139:14 says I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (KJV)  Psalms 139:13 says,  For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. (NIV)

I am thankful that I am created in his image, and I was knitted together in my birthmother’s womb and to God I am his reward. He calls me his daughter!!

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.
