Planned Parenthood has announced they are canceling abortions in Arkansas. OBGYNs in the state do not want to do business with Planned Parenthood, and the courts have decided not to force them to do it. So, this situation has resulted in Planned Parenthood telling women they cannot commit abortions under the law.

Women are no doubt wondering what to do and where to go. I would suggest that, if you are reading this and you were turned away from an abortion appointment you had, this happened for a reason. Days before, things would have been different, but THIS is the day you walked through those doors. And THIS is the day you had to turn around and walk right back out them.

Right now, it probably seems confusing and overwhelming. You might be scared or even mad. But I would suggest that you find support to embrace this unexpected change. Sometimes, the things that seem worst in life at the moment turn out to be the greatest gifts.

Your child — and yes, you are already a mother — needs you, quite simply. Your child entered the Planned Parenthood clinic with you, beneath your heart. And instead of leaving with her life compromised, she left with you, still alive. Her heart is still beating even now.

And I suggest there is a reason for this.

Choose hope. That’s what Dorothy Osborne did. You may have read about her in the news. If not, please do. Where others would see no way, she forged one. Where others would lose hope, she clung to faith. Where others would fall apart, she stood up tall. She went forward in life, with her son, embracing him while earning her college degree and becoming a nurse. Her son is now a Dallas Cowboy, with a college degree of his own. Dorothy’s story is amazing, but there’s no doubt it was extremely hard at first.

Hard is not always bad.

So if you are still pregnant in Arkansas and feeling alone, if you are still seeking an abortion, would you consider another path? Resources are available to you (including an ultrasound, like the one McKenzie got) and there are people standing by right now to help you find them.

Pregnancy care centers and maternity homes: You can find one by visiting OptionLine.org or by texting “Helpline” to 313131. If you visit OptionLine.org, a live chat option will pop up right away for you — if you want that.You can chat anonymously. Stand Up Girl also provides resources and connections for pregnant girls and women through live chat, email, and texting options. If your browser is set to show your location, pregnancy care centers in your area will easily and automatically be listed for you.

OptionLine and Stand Up Girl provide great help, but you can also comment on this post, and I will write back as soon as possible to personally help you find pregnancy care in your area.

Two other things —

First, is abortion what you really want? You can find out the facts by clicking that abortion link in the last sentence. They are available from an OBGYN who personally committed over 1200 abortions before his own child died, and he realized he was killing the children of other parents. Below, he explains what medication abortion — the abortion pill — really does to a developing child. There are risks to the mother, too. The risk of hemorrhage is quite significant with the abortion pill — up to 20% of women experience it. Other forms of abortion are not less violent.

Finally, learn the truth about what a little human your child already is. Did you know these 12 amazing facts about the first trimester? Too often, places like Planned Parenthood fail to provide the full information to women. I know they failed my sister-in-law. I don’t want them to fail you, too.

You sought an abortion. It didn’t work out. There’s a reason for that.

P.S. If you have taken the abortion pill or started a medication abortion, THERE IS STILL HOPE. Abortion reversal is a safe, emerging area of medical science. Hundreds of babies have been born completely healthy after their moms chose abortion reversal. You can check out the facts on abortion reversal here. 

You can also call the 24-hour, nurse-staffed hotline for abortion reversal at 1-877-558-0333.

Guys, this is sick. Absolutely sick. I know I’m saying that word a lot today, but in the context of what I’m about to share with you, it can’t be said enough. During the week of Easter, the New York Times made a series of emails public. These emails were between an abortion clinic and a fetal parts buyer. You can read all about it here, at my original article for Live Action News. And don’t skip this one…we have to face the facts and experience with our hearts what is going on all around our nation.

Read below what I posted on Facebook about it, and then GO READ THE LIVE ACTION NEWS ARTICLE. We can’t hide our faces from reality anymore. It’s easier, it’s happier – absolutely – but it isn’t okay.

If you haven’t yet, go check out AbortionProcedures.com and spread it around to your friends. Post the videos on Facebook, please. This is a tangible thing you can do to help show America what abortion is. These things – abortion and baby body part harvesting – are happening in other countries, too, all across the globe. So no matter where you live, share this info, and help put an end to these extreme human rights violations.

While it’s hard cold winter in most parts of the U.S. these days, I can’t quite let go of autumn. While some see autumn as the season of death, I see it as the season that reminds us new life is always coming. And when we think of abortion and life and choices, let us remember to reject death; to let a choice for death fall away from us, rejected.

Let us embrace new life in all its wonder and worry and anticipation. Let us wait eagerly and patiently for its arrival, knowing that when new life comes, it is always, always a gift that we will never regret accepting with open arms.

For years, I have treasured the verse, that reads, “Behold, I make all things new.” And in the changing seasons of life – be they beautiful or just plain ugly – I want to hold this verse close to my heart. I want to be willing to let my choices, my preferences, and my desires – when they add up to selfishness – fall away.

Come, Lord Jesus. Make all things new.

(Via Live Action News) – Mindy Raelynne Danison has suffered through two tragic miscarriages – one with the baby at seven weeks, and the other at eight weeks and five days. In response, Mindy created a Facebook photo album for each child, where she publicly celebrates their short, but much-loved lives. Mindy’s photos – especially one of Annabelle – have been shared on social media, and Mindy has expressed her desire for many to see her tiny babies. Their humanity could not be more obvious.

For more information on the development of babies at this stage – including amazing videos, ultrasounds, and photos – see The Endowment for Human Development. Eighty nine percent of abortions occur in the first trimester, when many babies look just like Riley and Annabelle. At only seven to eight weeks old, babies can touch their faces and their feet. At this stage of gestation, preborn babies can squint and roll over, and their hindbrain “presents striking resemblance to that of the newborn.”

3d-ultrasound-fetus-baby21.  Stand your ground.

You know you don’t want an abortion. Maybe you know in your heart that your child is a real, live person (you’re right!). Maybe you know your science and facts already. Maybe you can’t bear to be a part of killing an innocent human being. Maybe you already love your child. Maybe you or someone you know has had an abortion, and you know the physical and emotional pain that comes with it.

Whatever your reason, you do not have to get an abortion. It is against the law for anyone to force or coerce you to get one. You are your child’s mother, and no one – not your boyfriend, husband, parents, pimp, teacher, or lady at the grocery store – can make you get an abortion.

Let your “no!” mean “no!” – no matter what anyone else tells you. Your baby is a new, unique person who deserves a chance at life. Period.

If you ever need to be reminded why you don’t want an abortion, read real stories from real women who have had abortions.

Parenting website Mommyish recently published an article advocating ten reasons (well, actually nine) to have an abortion. In response, I wrote a piece debunking the author’s arguments. Today, I will discuss ten reasons not to have an abortion.

1) It compounds tragedy.

Sometimes the circumstances surrounding a pregnancy are tragic. Perhaps the woman was raped. Maybe the baby has been diagnosed with a defect. Or the woman’s health might be at risk. However, one tragedy is not answered with another. We do not erase a rape by killing a child. We do not cure a baby by taking his life. And we do not avoid all health issues by avoiding the reality of another human being.

Women who have been raped must be compassionately cared for. But compassionate care does not include executing a woman’s child. Parents facing a difficult prenatal diagnosis must be given real facts and directed to others with helpful experiences. They must not be forced into a quick choice for abortion or urged to take the life of their child instead of giving her a chance to defy the odds. Women with high-risk pregnancies must be treated by real medical professionals. But treatment does not include intentionally killing a child. (If a child dies during the course of treating the woman – i.e., during chemotherapy for cancer, removal of an ectopic pregnancy, etc. – this is not an abortion.)

In today’s modern age, it’s difficult to avoid the fact that unborn human beings are alive, growing, unique individuals – from the very first moment they come into existence. Yet some still manage to close their eyes to reality. It’s important to understand the things we claim to support. It’s essential to be aware of all the facts, not just the ones that seem to support our position.

And so, for anyone involved in the abortion debate – and for all those who are unsure exactly where they stand – here are five important videos. These short videos show just what that unborn baby in his mother’s womb looks like, at various stages of development. Modern scientific videos like these demonstrate that unborn babies are not:

  • A clump of cells
  • Part of his or her mother’s body
  • Similar to a virus or
  • Merely “potential” life

Abortion takes a child’s life. From the moment of conception, every person is a distinct and living human being with intrinsic worth, who possesses the basic right to life.

Abortion harms women. Abortion poses serious short-term and long-term risks to women’s physical and emotional health.

Abortion harms all of us. It has created a culture that disregards the dignity of human life, endangers women, demeans motherhood, and denigrates men’s role as fathers.

A choice for life is always more just. It’s the fair chance every person, including unborn children, deserve.

Do you have more questions about abortion? Do you want to know why the claims made above are true? Would you like to know how to explain abortion and the issue of life to your friends or others?

Well, fortunately, I’ve recently been introduced to an easy and excellent resource I’d like to pass along to you.

Months ago, I wrote a post about the dangers of the Mirena IUD.  This hormonal birth control device poses dangers to both women and unborn children.

To re-cap, here’s the summary from my previous post.

Summary:  Why use a “birth control” method that is likely to cause death for a baby/babies you never knew about?  Why use a device that hugely increases your odds of suffering an ectopic pregnancy and a miscarriage if you have it removed during pregnancy?  Why choose a “contraceptive” that is manufactured by a company that even the FDA calls misleading?  Why use the Mirena IUD if you are risking your own health and life in the process, along with your baby’s?

To read the rest, if you missed it, go here. You will find details about how the Mirena can end the life of an unborn child and how it can damage a woman’s health and internal reproductive system.

I was recently introduced to a graph that captures much of the harm that Mirena causes to some women.  I’m posting it below, along with a link to a law firm that may be able to help you if you’ve been damaged by a Mirena IUD. (I’m in no way affiliated with this law firm, but they are doing a good job of bringing out the truth about Mirena.)  Feel free to pass this info on!
