Wow.

I watched this video for the first time today.  And may I say that every, single woman out there ought to see this.

Specifically, if you are a mother, if you are pregnant, if you are unsure, insecure, wondering, wandering, wanting to know who you are and how or if you can go on – watch this.

If you find yourself in an unplanned pregnancy, know that you are part of a community of those who can. You are part of a steady stream of women – and even girls – who have gone before you, who have done this. One of the most famous women with an “unplanned pregnancy” is mentioned in this video.  And her Son made history.

Women need to be told these things. We are women. We are strong. We are capable. We are ready. We are able. We are all these things for ourselves and for our children. And, in fact, we were created that way; we were this way in our mothers’ wombs. Why? How can this be? It has all been made possible for us by One Who gave His life that we might live. On the cross, Christ won every battle that ever had been and was ever to be waged. The battles are already over, and they’ve been won.  We must only choose to accept Him and the victories He has won on our behalf.

Because of Him, you can do this. I can do this. We can all do this.  And when we feel weak, when we feel like it’s too much to go on, let us choose to reach out to the people around us who have been given strength for our moment.  Of course, call upon Jesus, and He will be there.  But also, also, call out for the help of the people He has created.

Call here.

Or here.

Here.

Or even here.

If you are in an unplanned pregnancy, a difficult pregnancy, or suffering after an abortion, call those numbers and get the help you need.  Help is within reach.  You are not alone, and you are awesome.

Women – and young girls – choose abortion for many reasons.  All of them are sad, and none are necessary – despite how it may seem.  (Note, please, that saving a woman from an ectopic pregnancy by removing the child or saving her from cancer by using chemotherapy or other such life-saving treatment is not an abortion, even if the baby dies.)

Often, women choose abortion because they are convinced they will be alone if they do not.  They believe that their parents will reject them and throw them out.  They believe their boyfriend or husband will leave them.  They believe their friends will scorn them or make fun of them.  They believe they will become an outcast in their family, at school, or in society.  They fear loneliness and rejection, but in their fear, they do not realize that abortion itself is the ultimate loneliness.

Children are created to be with their mothers (whether the mother is a biological or adopted mother).  Children were never created to be killed.  When a mother kills her child – a very unnatural act – she creates a vacuum in her heart and in her life.  She creates the very loneliness she was attempting to escape.

The following is a writing about a woman who almost chose an abortion, in part, to escape loneliness and the rejection that she believed she would suffer if she kept her child.  This writing reveals her thoughts as she went on to choose life for her daughter.  (If you have participated in an abortion in your past, please consider contacting a local pregnancy resource center or Rachel’s Vineyard for help for post-abortive women and men.)

LIFE CONQUERS MY GREAT ALONENESS

When you showed up on that little stick as a plus sign, I was so unaware. 

I tried to push thoughts of you aside by chatting away to the friend on the other end of my cell phone, but I had no idea you would soon fill my vision entirely.  You found yourself in my womb, and instantly I knew you were a different sort of person than I’d ever met before.  Confident and bold, yet humble and unassuming at the same time.  Little did you know the sway you already held over my trembling heart.

You were what I needed – for all of time – but I refused to let myself see the truth.  Instead, I plodded along in my great aloneness.

Of course, I inwardly cursed myself that I planned to choose my friends, my life, and him over you.  That I would never be free to sit with you over a coffee – or a juice box – across a table, and let you enter my heart.   I used your father as an excuse for what could have been the greatest failure of my life – the failure that would have sentenced me to a great aloneness for the rest of my days.

You may have had no idea of the struggle raging inside me.  Or maybe you knew all along.  But I refused to let you see who I truly was.  I was bound up by society’s ideals and my own sense of pride.  My adamant refusal to risk getting hurt or being told I was wrong – that I didn’t live up the the standards – nearly led me to choose this great aloneness.

Proper manners ordered me to dismiss you cooly, as though you had not already captured my soul.  They ordered me to keep our conversations to the business at hand – ending your life – when what I really wanted was to take your tiny, chubby baby hand in mine, forever.  They whispered in my ear that I was not good enough, that you would not want me as your mother if you knew.  I feared taking a chance that would risk my heart.  I shook my head at the daring ideas racing in my mind.  I rejected courage, and my heart beat in solitary confinement.  But it is I who imprisoned myself in this great aloneness.  But only for a time.

I am not one to give up so easily.  I ride on the wings of hope.  And I am comforted by the power of prayer.  Perhaps my courage has taken its sweet time to surface, but it has come to me at last.  I believe, my child, that you are worth risking my pride, my comfort, my convenience, and even my life as I know it.  And now I am actually willing to act on my belief.

I can only hope that you will reach up your tiny hand, smile at my world – and at my very soul – as you take your first breath on the day of your birth.  Welcome to my world, little daughter.  You are here to stay.

Abortion is many, many things.

It is painful.

It is cruel.

It is a tragedy.

It is the source of harm for countless women, men, and families.

It is the cause of death for millions of innocent children.

More specifically, though, if you want to hear true, accurate descriptions of abortion from those who have been there – women who’ve experienced abortions and abortion doctors and clinic workers – you should follow the Expose Abortion project.  (There are other descriptions of abortion here that are worth reading, for those who want very detailed information.)

I’ve written a whole article about the Expose Abortion project for Live Action.  You can read it here.  This project exposes abortion by revealing truth from the inside.  Below are just a few of the project’s quotes, most from abortion doctors and clinic workers:

I was helping the doctor hold the baby [to keep it in the birth canal]. The other nurse got the instrument [a large syringe with a large needle], handed it to the doctor, and he inserted it into the base of the skull. Then he pulled the baby out. Its little hands were grasping. When the baby quit grasping, then he delivered it. He used the syringe to suction out the brains.

– Testimony of witness to an abortion. See Silentnomoreawareness.org/testimonies/testimony.aspx?ID=2671

It [abortion] goes against all things which are natural. It’s a termination of a life, however you look at it.

– Robert Harris, abortionist, From author Magda Denes, PhD. “In Necessity and Sorrow: Life and Death Inside an Abortion Hospital”.

And typically when the abortion procedure is started we typically know that the fetus is still alive because either we can feel it move as we’re making our initial grasps or if we’re using some ultrasound visualization when we actually see a heartbeat as we’re starting the procedure.

– This account of D&E is part of sworn testimony given in US District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin (Madison, WI, May 27, 1999, Case No. 98-C-0305-S), by Dr. Martin Haskell, an abortionist.

You can see a miniature person… as a physician… I am destroying life.

– abortionist Benjamin Kalish, MD

Question: Can the heart of a fetus or embryo still be beating during a suction curettage abortion as the fetus or embryo comes down the cannula?
Answer: For a few seconds to a minute, yes.

– Sworn testimony given in US District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin (Madison, WI, May 27, 1999, Case No. 98-C-0305-S), by Dr. Harlan Raymond Giles, an abortionist. He describes legal activity.)

I was finally able to remove the head and look squarely into the face of a human being…a human I had just killed.

– abortionist Paul Jarrett, MD

I have taken the lives of innocent babies and I have ripped them from their mother’s wombs with a powerful suction machine.

– abortionist McArthur Hill, MD.

Pro-life protesters make a silent demonstratio...

Have you ever thought that it’s pretty stinkin’ hard to keep track of everything that goes on in this world related to the pro-life issue?  I sure have!  Every day, it seems, new developments are occurring.  Happily, 2011 was one of the best years…if not THE best year…for pro-lifers since Roe v. Wade.  Many new pro-life laws were put states.  Congress held a vote to completely defund Planned Parenthood.  (Sadly, it didn’t pass this time around.)  Media attention is increasingly highlighting the pro-life issue.  The recent GOP presidential pro-life forum, televised by C-SPAN and live-streamed by CNN is evidence of this.

So, four ideas for you to keep up with all that’s happening in the pro-life movement:

1)  Subscribe to Google Alerts for news on “abortion,” “pro-life,” and “personhood.”  Any other term relating to the issue that you’d like to watch is fair game!  (Think Roe v. Wade, stem cell research, euthanasia, etc.)

2)  Visit Live Action’s blog every day–or at least once a week–to catch up on news you may have missed.  Live Action usually makes multiple posts by multiple writers every day!  It’s a busy place over there =)

3)  Sign up for Family Research Council’s annual ProLifeCon.  This is coming up on January 23, and it’s a webcast.  You can find out how to more effective in broadcasting the pro-life message from the comfort of your own home!  The speakers include pro-life pioneer U.S. Rep. Chris Smith, Dr. Gerard Nadal, Live Action President Lila Rose, and Michael Clancy–the photographer of the famous picture where little Samuel Armas reaches out from his mother’s womb to grab the doctor’s finger.  Sign up for the webcast here.

4)  Watch the video of the GOP pro-life presidential forum.  If you’re still undecided on who to vote for, this may help you make up your mind!  (Hint, hint, don’t vote for Mitt Romney.)  Here’s the link to the video.

Happy learning!  Happy researching!  And happy saving lives!!!  Through God’s grace, we ARE making a difference.  YOU are making a difference.  Keep it up.

Baby toesThis morning, I read an excellent article about the effects of abortion on women, men, and other family members.  The author is correct when she recognizes that abortion has a ripple effect.  Not only does it end the life of an innocent human being; it also does major damage to the lives and relationships of many others…the mother, sometimes the father, a friend who encouraged the abortion, parents who were “almost-grandparents”, siblings who lost a brother or sister…the list goes on, as Jane Brennan points out.

I’d encourage you to read her poignant article, sharing her personal experience here:  http://www.crosswalk.com/faith/women/understanding-the-post-abortive-woman-11568765.html

Here is an excerpt of what Jane shares:  “The pain of abortion is a pain many women continue to suffer in isolation or silence. I recently compiled a book of women who have chosen abortion, and in their stories I see the same sorrow, pain, agony and guilt I felt that so often gets unreported amid the jumble of political rhetoric focused on rights. In one story, Marie shares: The despair deepened and turned quickly to depression. I remember sitting in the bathroom during a break at my summer job, seriously considering suicide. I could just take one of these box-cutters from the back room-end it all. Right here. Right now. “

Jane gives hope for healing to women who have already chosen abortion.  And to those who are on the brink of making their choice, she has some thoughts that cannot go unread.  For example:

“Today’s world is all about comfort, it’s all about “me.” Our society has convinced us of the “inconveniences” of life and that we need not endure them. Yet, I and so many others have learned that “inconvenience” builds character and makes us stronger. In fact, these “inconveniences” can even be better for us than the alternative.”

I agree wholeheartedly with Jane that we suffer from a culture of convenience.  Because we are often so busy looking at what we want in the here and now, we forget to have faith for the unseen blessings ahead.  Since we cannot see our unborn child, we choose to believe they must not be a real person.  The women who accidentally see the arms, legs, and heads of their aborted children after abortion are usually devasted for life.  Choosing convenience is weak.  Choosing to break out of our circumstances, even when it seems that we can’t, is a strong choice.  Strong women are built by hard choices that care for others.  Once we are pregnant, we have a duty to care for the small life developing under our heart.  Choosing life may be hard, but it is the best choice for everyone involved…

Here are resources to help women who have already had an abortion and for those who are pregnant and looking for help:

Post-Abortive Women:

Women Needing Help to Continue Their Pregnancies:

Note:  Some of these sites/resources claim that abortion or emergency contraceptives (chemical abortions) are options for women.  I disagree.  It should never be an option for us to intentionally kill an innocent little person.  However, these sites will point you to good resources and help in keeping your baby or choosing adoption.

Coupon for an Abortion

Posted: November 18, 2011 in Get Educated, In The News

Coupon WalletOk, this is beyond horrifying.  Really?  A coupon for abortion?  You betcha.  Abortion clinics would love nothing more than to find a new way to get more women in and more babies killed.  You have to see it to believe it.  Go here:  http://www.womenscenter.com/orlando_womens_center.html.  To make matters worse, the abortion “discount” can only be applied on Sundays, which is often thought of as the Lord’s Day.  Well, don’t let me stop you.  Hurry and print your coupon…after all, it’s a “Limited Time Special.”

Ok, I promised that my next post would include information about the Mirena IUD. Most of us already know that the IUD likely causes abortions before the mother is even aware that she’s pregnant.  But there’s been some talk that the Mirena IUD is different, so I studied it out.  Here’s the results I came up with:

English: Mirena IntraUterine System Deutsch: M...

English: Mirena IntraUterine System Deutsch: Mirena Hormonspirale (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

1)     Causes Harm/Side Effects for Many Women  Did you know about the possible lawsuit against the company who makes Mirena because of all the bad side effects, specifically in younger women?  Also, the FDA themselves actually put out a warning letter to the company…and we know that the FDA rarely does anything!  http://www.aboutlawsuits.com/mirena-iud-13909/

2)     Stops Implantation:  http://www.contracept.org/iud-mirena.php  This site (and several others I found) say that Mirena may stop ovulation in some women, but it does not in most.  It also says that one way Mirena works is to stop a baby from implanting if a woman does get pregnant (even though, of course, some people do stay pregnant, but that is apparently rare).  Of course, if implantation is stopped, the baby dies.

3)     Risks Danger and Possible Death to Women and Babies:  http://www.drugs.com/pro/mirena.html  You have to scroll down a ways on this one, but under the warnings and precautions, it talks about how up to half of women
who get pregnant on Mirena have an ectopic pregnancy (and other random, weird things that can happen).  There is always the risk of death for the woman (and of course the baby) with an ectopic pregnancy.  I know the FDA warned the company that makes Mirena that they are not being up front enough with people about all the risks and side effects that Mirena can have/has had with some women.  Pretty scary stuff if you ask me!

4)  IUD Must Be Removed:  If you do have a Mirena and get pregnant, you are warned to get it removed as soon as possible.  Otherwise, it has the potential of causing death in you or the baby.  Death to the baby, specifically, is still a risk with the process of having the IUD removed. Not a good thing, either way you look at it.

5)  Doctors Don’t Always Reveal the Full Truth:  From my own personal experience, I know there are even pro-life doctors who have no problem recommending birth control that actually does stop a baby from implanting and living. You would think they would only prescribe stuff that prevents fertilization, but this is often not true, unfortunately. All too often, to get the full facts, you need to do your own research and go to the manufacturer’s site. I’ve never personally seen a manufacturer’s site that doesn’t disclose whether the birth control prevents implantation or poses dangers to women. (Though I wouldn’t doubt if there are some out there! For example, I know the FDA railed on Bayer for not fully revealing Mirena’s dangers to women.)

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 or 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?

Ok, it’s time to take action…

Did you know that just ten hours from the Denver Metro area, up to 25% of babies are dying before they reach six months of age?  And no, this death rate has nothing to do with abortion.  It has everything to do with malnutrition and lack of food.  And you can do something about it!

I just found out from “Babies of Juarez” that, in Juarez, Mexico, many babies wear the same diaper for four days or longer.  The familes are too poor to afford new diapers, and there’s not enough water to make cloth diapers an option.  According to the flyer I read,

A mom will go to the store with enough money for one diaper.  The diapers are used and reused until they can no longer hold anything more, and the mom will go back to the store with just enough money to buy a new one.  Our team in the clinic saw babies with horrible sores on their bottoms and the parents with no means to help them.

The even greater tragedy is that the babies are dying due to lack of food.  Many mothers in the area–specifically in Kilometer 30, an area of Juarez–are too malnourished themselves to breastfeed, and their milk dries up all too quickly.

Up to twenty-five percent of the babies in Kilometer 30 don’t live longer than six months.  It’s extremely common for parents to not name their babies until after six months because of the terribly high infant mortality rate.  Formula is literally life itself to these people.

Reading this breaks my heart.  I’m sure it breaks yours.  But there is something we can do to help save these babies!  Go to www.babiesofjuarez.org and click on the “Get Involved” tab.

  • You can collect diapers and formula and have them picked up at your house or you can drop them off at one of the organization’s hubs.
  • You can make a tax deductible donation…and 100% of your money goes to buy diapers and formula.
  • You can organize a diaper and formula drive at your business, club, school, church, VBS, neighborhood, kids’ consignment sale, AWANA group, or for your own missions trip.
  • And of course, you can spread the word!
  • Please spend some time looking around the website to find ideas of what you can do.  For example, one mom wrote saying that her two children, ages 5 and 8, were going to pass flyers around their neighborhood and ask people for donations.  I know that you can often find new diapers at thrift stores or formula (or formula coupons) on Craigslist.  You could always email the people on Craigslist and see if they are willing to donate their formula to the cause.  If you have more ideas, post them in a comment below!

How does Babies of Juarez work?  Here is a little clip from the website:

I thought it might be helpful to give a quick rundown of how the ministry works. It’s delightfully simple and effective. People like you donate supplies or money to purchase supplies. There’s a hub in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, and one in Gilbert, Arizona, has recently been added. We collect and store the diapers and formula. When a team is going to the colonias for a house-building project through Missions Ministries, the supplies are loaded and sent with that team. Missions Ministries distributes the supplies to the five local pastors in their area of service down in the colonias outside Juarez. The five pastors then distribute to the families under their care. Over the years we’ve seen pastors come the very night we arrive, late in the evening, because they knew of a hungry baby who desperately needed food. It’s a life I can only imagine. And overwhelming to say the least. Since this project started in 2007 we’ve sent 23 big loads to Juarez (see babiesofjuarez.org for pictures) and as a result the infant mortality rate has dropped significantly. It’s been my life-changing privilege to gather supplies from all of you these past few years. Thank you.

Have you ever wondered where pro-lifers get their facts from?  Why do they claim abortion is killing a human beings, based on “modern medical science?”  Why do they say there is  new information that shows abortion is wrong…much more so than there was almost four decades ago when Roe v. Wade was decided?  What are these pro-lifers talking about??

There is a 71 page paper that everyone in America should read.  Go here:  http://www.dakotavoice.com/Docs/South%20Dakota%20Abortion%20Task%20Force%20Report.pdf.   In 71 pages, this report extensively details the modern scientific proof of the humanity and separate, unique life of the unborn child.  No one who claims to truly believe in choice should turn away from at least reading the current evidence for human life in the womb…

Based on testimony from expert geneticists and embryologists, the Task Force agreed, “There can no longer be any doubt that each human being is totally unique from the very beginning of his or her life at fertilization.”[1]

The Task Force quoted extensive testimony from Dr. David Fu-Chi Mark, a nationally celebrated molecular biologist who has patented various polymerase chain reaction techniques, been awarded Inventor of the Year for patenting Human Recombinant Interleukin-2 Muteins, which treats kidney and skin cancer, developed an internationally marketed drug to treat Multiple Sclerosis, and is known for his work in DNA cloning, in vitro modification of DNA, and DNA sequencing.[2]  Dr. Mark testified:

A human being at an embryonic age and that human being at an adult
age are naturally the same, the biological differences are due only to the
differences in maturity. Changes in methylation of cytosine demonstrate that
the human being is fully programmed for human growth and development for his or
her entire life at the one cell age.

New evidence and research continues to come out which shows that abortion is incompatible with a humane, compassionate society.  Phillip G. Ney, M.D., is a physician, child psychiatrist, psychologist, university professor, and an expert in child abuse.  He states,

“After forty years as a consultant psychiatrist,
clinical researcher and university professor, I have no doubt that abortion is
the most destructive and dehumanizing experience known to humanity.  Unfortunately, it remains legal and
commonplace, devastating the lives of children, mothers, fathers—of
everyone….[T]he testimony of those who performed abortion, or were harmed by
it, will soon become well known.

And their anguish will be heard.”[1]

1926 US advertisement. "Birth Control"

Image via Wikipedia. This is a pamphlet that Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, used to pass around. The resources she recommended were full of lies for women–not different at all from the Planned Parenthood of today.

Every single life is incredibly valuable…every single baby deserves a chance to live–especially yours. –Anonymous

*A number of my readers come here looking for info on abortion – perhaps because they’re thinking about having one, wondering how to have one, being pressured into having one, or trying to stop one. If this is you, please feel free to go to the end of my article to the section “If you are thinking about abortion.”

**If you want information on Mirena or IUD’s go here.

If not, keep reading. =)

I’ve been asked many times about my stand on birth control.  My stand is very simple:  Birth control is a personal choice that every couple needs to make for themselves…unless they are using a method that kills their child.  That, of course, would be the same as abortion (with the exception that I don’t think a lot of people know what they’re doing).

While I’d never claim to be an expert on birth control, I have done research on the Birth Control Pill since it’s so commonplace and accepted, even by many pro-lifers.  There are at least five problems I see with it.

1)  What is a Pregnancy, Really?

It’s claimed (even by the Pill itself) that the Pill will not end an existing pregnancy, once a child is conceived.  Any normal person reading that would be free to assume that the Pill, then, does not cause a chemical abortion.  Wait a second, though.  Should we always trust the manufacturer of a “medicine” or any product to give us the full scoop?  In reality, the original definition of pregnancy and conception–and the one we would think still exists–is the beginning of a new human life from the moment of fertilization.  But this is no longer true in the medical community.  In order to provide for the Pill and other such deadly inventions, the medical community changed the definition of pregnancy and conception to the time of implantation, which is 5-10 days AFTER fertilization.  So in other words, your baby is currently not considered alive until 5-10 days after he or she really is alive.  Weird.  And wrong.  And all so the medical community and the Pill manufacturers can claim that the Pill doesn’t end a pregnancy.  Well, here’s the real truth…it actually can and does.  It ends pregnancies before implantation–before you even know the baby exists.

2) It’s the Last Resort…But It Still Happens

There are three purposes behind the Birth Control Pill.  First, the Pill tries to prevent ovulation.  This is it’s first line of “defense”, so to speak, against getting pregnant.  Secondly, the Pill thickens the mucus around the cervix so it’s harder for sperm to reach any eggs that have been released.  Finally…and here’s the Catch 22…the Pill acts to strip the lining of the uterus so no pregnancies (or babies, really!) can attach.  So, if you read anywhere about the purpose of the Birth Control Pill, you’ll see that it’s last resort is to strip a woman’s lining so a baby cannot live in her womb.  I’d certainly call that a chemical abortion because a baby can be created while a woman is on the Birth Control Pill.

3)  What the Doctors Say

I go to a pro-life OB-GYN.  I asked her about the Birth Control Pill and whether or not it ever caused abortions.  Her answer was that, if it did, it was rare so she would prescribe it anyway.     Really?!  Is that really ok?  Is that really a pro-life stance?  This has the chance of killing your child, but it would be rare, so go ahead and do it anyway.  I don’t think so.  In addition, there are several very good pro-life women’s doctors who flatly refuse to prescribe the Birth Control Pill, like Dr. Walt Larimore.  Ask them why they refuse.

4)  What Planned Parenthood Says

First, Planned Parenthood claimed that the Birth Control Pill did not cause chemical abortions.  Now, they claim that if the unborn child is called a person in the law, all birth control–specifically including the Birth Control Pill–will be outlawed.  Hmm…make up your mind please.  When it was convenient for Planned Parenthood to claim that the Pill didn’t cause abortions, they claimed it so that women would believe them and get hooked.  But when Personhood Amendments were brought forward in various states, and the unborn child was about to be called a person in law, the truth came out!  The Birth Control Pill really DOES cause abortions, or it would never need to be outlawed by a law in favor of unborn children’s personhood.

5)  Miscarriages and Women’s Health

Besides the fact that the Birth Control Pill can and does cause abortions, I have yet another personal reason why I don’t use it.  The Pill affects women’s health…quite drastically at times.  The biggest detriment I can see is that the Pill specifically works to strip the lining of a woman’s uterus.  That’s why doctors usually tell women on the Pill to wait a while after getting off the Pill before getting pregnant.  Since your lining is stripped, a baby you want to have may not be able to attach either.  This is why some women have a miscarriage first after getting off the Birth Control Pill.  I think this is such an incredibly sad effect, especially since many women are led to believe that the Birth Control Pill does not cause abortions…

PLEASE READ:

First, I’m not claiming that absolutely everyone who has ever used the Pill has had a chemical abortion.  That could never be proven for a fact.  But I am saying that evidence points to the fact that this could easily occur.  If you are reading this and you are currently on the Birth Control Pill, I’d encourage you to stop now that you know the truth.  The IUD (another common form of birth control) acts in a similar way to the Pill and also causes abortions.  Please study birth control to know which kinds are safe for you and your baby.  I HIGHLY recommend the free book “Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions?” by Randy AlcornAlso, if you never heard this information before, please don’t feel guilty…you didn’t know the truth, and many organizations out there take great care to conceal it.  In addition, not every woman who uses the Pill has a miscarriage before having a baby, so please don’t let that scare you either.  Please just take the truth and apply it!  Save any baby that you can, especially your own!

If you’re a woman considering abortion, please consider that you have other options. I know, you’ve probably heard that. But please read on. Abortion – no matter how great it seems in the moment – is a decision with very lasting and painful effects. Read what other women have to say about it! Please at least go to this site, where you will find a helpline, a way to chat online, or a way to email someone who can help you. Or, the site can help you find a pregnancy resource center in your area where you can go for emotional and material support, as well as often a free ultrasound – which you should totally see!

You can also comment on this article – I’ll see it before anyone else does – and I’ll be happy to email you back and help you however I can.
