“Black Lives Matter” Activists Upset at Pro-Life Billboard Saying “Both Lives Matter”

The Black Lives Matter organization actually supports abortion, even though it destroys more black lives than any other cause.

Below is a Life News article by Miciah Bilger concerning a pro-life billboard in New Zealand.

A pro-life billboard in New Zealand has some Black Lives Matter activists upset because it uses the phrase ‘Both Lives Matter’ in reference to a mother and her unborn baby.

Newshub reports the Black Lives Matter activists claimed pro-lifers wrongly borrowed language from their own campaign.

The billboard displays the phrase “Both Lives Matter” along with the image of a pregnant mother holding an ultrasound photo of her unborn baby against her stomach. Under the image is the pro-life organization’s website and the phrase, “Both deserve better than an extreme abortion law.”

“I’m disgusted this was allowed to be put up. And with that ‘slogan’ in this time?? The undertone is distasteful it’s not right man,” a Black Lives Matter activist wrote online, sharing a photo of the pro-life billboard.

The post received hundreds of negative comments from fellow activists. Many expressed outrage that pro-lifers would use similar language to defend the lives of unborn babies from abortions. Some commenters even suggested trying to vandalize or remove the pro-life advertisement in Wellington, according to the report.

But, according to the local news, the billboard has been up since October 2019 — long before the recent protests over the death of George Floyd began.

Voice for Life, the oldest and largest volunteer pro-life organization in the country, is sponsoring the ad campaign. The organization has been raising awareness about extreme pro-abortion legislation that would expand the killing of unborn babies in New Zealand.

For months, the pro-life organization has been facing complaints about its billboard campaign.

The Advertising Standards Authority Complaints Board heard one complaint last fall, alleging the ad was offensive and could lead to harassment of women seeking abortions, according to the report.

However, the board rejected the complaint, noting that differing political ideas should be “encouraged” as an “essential and desirable part of the functioning of a democratic society,” the report states.

The advertising company said the ad campaign is scheduled to end later this week.

The Black Lives Matter organization actually supports abortion, even though it destroys more black lives than any other cause. In the United States alone, since 1973, more than 20 million unborn black babies have been killed in abortions.

Dozens of Legislators Demand Update on Investigation into Planned Parenthood

Members of Congress want a progress report after the latest undercover videos showed the abortion giant acknowledging ‘trafficking human fetal tissue from aborted infants.

Planned Parenthood Investigation

The following report from Life Site News concerning the sale of fetal body parts was authored by Martin Burger.  

A group of over 60 members of Congress asked the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to provide “an update on the status of the Department’s investigation into Planned Parenthood and its affiliates,” as well as “an explanation of steps it is taking to prioritize the enforcement of fetal trafficking laws altogether.”

The legislators sent their letter to U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr on June 26 after the release of a video by the Center for Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood executives admitting under oath to selling body parts of aborted babies.

“In a shocking compilation of incriminating testimonies released in May, Planned Parenthood executives openly admit to trafficking human fetal tissue from aborted infants,” the letter pointed out. “For instance, uncovered exchanges in the video footage between Dorothy Furgerson, MD, the Director of Planned Parenthood Mar Monte (PPMM), and research company, StemExpress, outline a contract for PPMM to sell fetal body parts to StemExpress at a rate of $65 per usable specimen.”

Not mentioned by the members of Congress, the video also showed how Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), while under investigation in 2015, told Congress that its Gulf Coast affiliate (PPGC) in Houston had “rebuffed” an undercover proposal to sell fetal livers for $750 per liver and $1,600 for liver/thymus pairs. But Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast senior director of abortion access Tram Nguyen testified that she “wanted to move forward with it,” as documented in contemporaneous emails between her and PPGC regional director Dyann Santos.

According to the more than 60 legislators, these admissions are “not only morally repugnant, to strip an unborn child for parts and sell them to the highest bidder, it is also a federal crime.”

In fact, federal law “clearly states that it is illegal for any person to ‘solicit or knowingly acquire, receive, or accept a donation of human fetal tissue for valuable consideration.’”

New Florida Law Protects Babies From Infanticide, But Planned Parenthood Opposed It

Demonstrating their loyalty to the billion-dollar abortion industry, Democrats blocked the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act at least 80 times last year

baby200

The following is a Life News article by Miciah Bilger.  It’s concerns a Florida law that protects babies who survive abortion.  

Florida Lawmakers added new protections for babies who survive abortions this week as growing evidence indicates that viable babies are born alive in botched abortions every year in the U.S.

Tampa Bay News 10 reports Florida already has a law in place that requires abortionists and support staff to provide medical care to a baby who is born alive from a botched abortion and transport the baby to a hospital. 

But the new law, signed by Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday, increases the penalties for failing to provide that basic care.

Florida Senate Bill 404 makes it a third-degree felony for a doctor or medical worker to neglect to provide care to a baby who survives an abortion. Previously, the penalty was a misdemeanor.

“This law sends a clear message that here in Florida, we will do everything we can to prevent the abomination of infanticide in our state,” Senate President Bill Galvano said after the governor signed the law. “When a child miraculously survives this brutal medical procedure, that child’s life must be preserved and treated with great respect and care. The penalty for refusing to provide medical care to an infant struggling for life should be significant.”

Galvano thanked state Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, the lead sponsor, for her courageous leadership on the pro-life law.

Earlier this year, a Fox News investigation found that 40 known abortion survivors were documented in just three states between 2016 and 2018, including 19 in Florida. It is not clear from the report if any of the babies survived.

Abortions are legal for any reason up to 24 weeks of pregnancy in Florida. Premature babies now are surviving at 21 weeks of pregnancy, and, in 2018, the state reported 213 abortions at or after 21 weeks of pregnancy.

Despite the evidence, the abortion chain Planned Parenthood fought aggressively against the legislation. Stephanie Fraim, who runs the Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida affiliate, claimed the law threatens “a reinterpretation of our constitutional right to privacy and the right to a safe and legal abortion in Florida.”

But the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops and other pro-life leaders praised lawmakers for supporting the life-saving legislation, according to the Catholic News Service.

“As Catholics, we condemn abortion as a grave injustice that denies the fundamental human right to life. However, as long as abortion is legal, we support measures such as parental consent that will reduce the grave harm it inflicts,” they said in a statement.

Stargel’s law also requires a girl under 18 to have at least one parent’s permission before going through with an abortion. The bill includes exceptions for medical emergencies and allows a judge to grant permission instead of a parent.

Meanwhile, growing evidence indicates that babies are born alive in botched abortions every year in the U.S. Earlier this week, Minnesota, one of only a few states that keeps data on abortion survivors, reported three babies survived abortions in 2019.

Prayer Campaign for Politicians Ends, but We Should Never Stop Praying for Lost Souls #onesoulatatime

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”   John 3:16 

Jesusonthecross 5

“I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.  And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.”  John 11:25

Voices for Life dedicated six weeks from May 11th thru June 15th to pray for political leaders.  Intercessory prayers were focused on the following politicians: NY Gov. Mario Cuomo, Rep. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Ocasio Cortez, PA Rep. Brian Sims and PA Gov. Tom Wolf.  The first and most important prayer for these lost souls is salvation.

Many books have been written about miraculous conversions to Christ.  Intercessory prayers, sometimes for decades, precede salvation of a loved one. Such was the case with, Monica, the mother of St. Augustine.  After many years of praying for her son, Augustine left a sinful life.  He converted to Christ to become one of the greatest theologians of the Catholic Church.

Rev. Chuck Wilson is pastor of New Hope Community Church. Pastor Chuck and his wife Kim are the parents of 14 children.  He has participated in many pro-life events at Warminster Planned Parenthood.  Recently, he preached a sermon on the Book of Daniel 4:28-38.  His message concerned the evil Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar who enslaved the Jews and destroyed Jerusalem.  Pastor Chuck recounts how God brought this proud, cruel ruler to his knees in repentance. God’s message to us is clear. No one is beyond redemption.

Prayer Campaign for Politicians Week Six: Governor Tom Wolf #onesoulatatime

Wolf is extremely close to the abortion chain Planned Parenthood, having once been a volunteer. Planned Parenthood spent a record $1.5 million to support his re-election in 2018.

PA Governor Tom Wolf is the focus of the sixth and final week of our Prayer Campaign for Politicians.  

Gov. Wolf is one of the most pro-abortion governors in our nation. In July 2015, a Life News article reported he appointed a Planned Parenthood board member as his chief of staff.  The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that PP pledged $1.5 million dollars to his 2018 reelection campaign.

He has vetoed many pro-life bills since he has taken office.  “When Planned Parenthood wants a veto, Governor Tom Wolf gives it to them every time – no matter the impact on the health and well-being of Pennsylvania citizens,” Michael Geer, PA Family Institute

Jesus calls us to pray for our enemies.  It’s impossible to obey Jesus’ command regarding our enemies without total dependence on Him and His divine power and grace.  Peter tells us that God doesn’t want anyone to perish. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise…but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2 Peter 3:9

Paul’s epistle to Timothy directs us to pray for leaders in authority.  “I urge, then, first of all that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone, for kings and all those in authority.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2a

How-Should-We-Pray-for-Our-Leaders-

The prayer for salvation is of primary importance for a soul on the path to hell.

Heavenly Father, we lift up Governor Wolf to you.  We pray the Holy Spirit would convict him of his support for abortion and Planned Parenthood.  We pray that he would repent of his sins and turn away from his path of evil.  May he accept your gift of salvation through your son Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen

 

 

 

 

Did You Know Black Lives Matter Supports Abortion, Homosexuality, and Anti-Family Agenda?

Many are surprised to discover Black Lives Matter’s anti-family manifesto.

The Life Site News staff published an article of great importance about Black Lives Matter. Below is their shocking revelation concerning the manifesto of the founders. This report will open your eyes to the their goals and true intent.

While Black Lives Matter seems on the outside to be a social justice organization that aims to further the rights of African-Americans, many are surprised to discover that the group has an alarming pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, and anti-family agenda at the core of its mission to remake America.

In its online manifesto titled “What We Believe,” the Black Lives Matter organizers Patrisse Khan-Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi say they and their followers “disrupt” the “Western-prescribed” family. They also say they have freed themselves from “heteronormative thinking” and demand “reproductive justice.”

“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable,” they wrote.

“We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise),” they continued.

“We deserve and thus we demand reproductive justice [i.e., abortion] that gives us autonomy over our bodies and our identities while ensuring that our children and families are supported, safe, and able to thrive.”

Despite disrupting the “nuclear family,” all three founders of the Black Lives Movement were raised in intact families. Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 36, is an LGBT activist who left her married parents’ home at the age of 16 after informing them of her homosexual identity. Alicia Garza, 39, also grew up with both parents at home and is now “married” to a white female who identifies as a “transgender male.” Garza, too, considers herself an LGBT activist. Opal Tometi, 35, grew up with a Nigerian mother and father and two brothers in Arizona.

In a 2015 interview with MSNBC, Khan-Cullors stressed the “queer identity” of the Black Lives Matter founders.

“Even the hashtag [#BlackLivesMatter] was created by two black queer women, myself and Alicia, and one Nigerian-American woman, Opal Tometi,” she said.

Khan-Cullors explained that “from the beginning” it was important to the movement to address not only the “killings of young black boys,” but “all black lives,” including those of transgender people. Khan-Cullors suggested that civil rights leaders of the past have not been representative of all black people.

“The historical narrative of black people has been fighting for black cis-hetero Christian men, both their lives [and] also them being at the forefront of the conversation,” she said.

Black Lives Matter has been accused by some pundits of having hijacked George Floyd’s murder for political gains.

Ryan Bomberger, a mixed-race pro-life activist, said the Black Lives Matter organization’s focus on LGBT ideology is one of the ten reasons he will never join the movement.

“They heavily promote homosexuality and transgenderism,” Bomberger wrote on June 5 for Townhall.

“I’m not embracing confusion,” he added. “Loving every human being is not the same as loving every human doing.”

Bomberger also objected to Black Lives Matter’s refusal to address the overwhelming problem of fatherlessness in the black American community.

“They completely ignore fatherhood,” he wrote. “Every ‘village’ that has fatherless families is a village that suffers higher crime rates, higher drug usage, higher abortion rates, higher drop-out rates, higher poverty rates, and so much more. #DadsMatter.”

Bomberger also noted that the youngest black lives do not seem to matter to the authors of the Black Lives Matter manifesto.

“Aborted children don’t thrive. BLM groups announced ‘solidarity’ with ‘reproductive justice’ groups back in February 2015. You cannot simultaneously fight violence while celebrating it,” he stated.

Khan-Cullors and Garza began the “Black Lives Matter” movement after the Hispanic George Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013 of second-degree murder and manslaughter of a 17-year-old black boy named Trayvon Martin. The movement’s name is now synonymous with the protests that have swept the United States and other Western countries since convicted felon George Floyd was filmed dying under the knee of a white police officer.

Adoption Is Beautiful, Surrogacy Isn’t: Responding to Concerns and Questions

Surrogacy has been so normalized, even in the Christian world, that speaking against it is quite controversial.

pregnant-woman-unsplash-2

The following article published by Breakpoint was authored by Maria Baer & John Stonestreet.

Recently, prompted by the news that CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and his homosexual partner paid a woman to carry a child for them, my colleague Maria Baer and I released a BreakPoint commentary on the serious ethical problems of surrogacy. Surrogacy intentionally breaks the mother/father/child connection, commodifies both babies and women’s bodies, and puts both women and children at risk of exploitation. That this immoral practice is now normal is, as we said, another chapter in the bad ideas of the sexual revolution, and its victims.

A few readers and listeners wrote in to ask whether our concern that surrogacy intentionally severs the bond between mothers, fathers, and children also extends to adoption.

In short, the answer is no. Adoption repairs a fracture. Surrogacy creates one.
God’s design for the family is that a man and wife become one flesh and raise children together. The Fall frustrates this design in different ways. Families can break. Couples may find that their sexual union is infertile. Biological parents find themselves unable to care for their children for various reasons. A sexual act, disordered toward illegitimate pleasure or even selfish violence, produces a life unintended and unexpected.

Whatever the brokenness, adoption offers a means of restoration. Implicitly, the act of adoption recognizes that something is not as it should be, whether or not someone is morally culpable. A family break of some kind, typically at the beginning of the procreative act, is addressed and, many times, even restored by a new family. As open adoptions become more common, there is even, to some degree, a merging of families or of biological parents into the new family.

In all of these ways, adoption portrays God’s relationship with us. Adoption is among the many marriage and family metaphors used in Scripture to describe how God relates to His people. Paul, in Ephesians, calls Christians adopted” sons and daughters of God, though Jesus Christ. The fracture created in the Garden and extended by our own brokenness is repaired by Jesus. As a result, we are adopted children of God, with all of the rights and benefits and status involved.

In the comments we received about the previous commentary on surrogacy, some questioned whether a woman’s relationship to the children she bears is really all that important. This was asked by adoptive moms who are just as emotionally and spiritually connected to their children as any biological mother could be. In our view, that’s obviously and beautifully true, and not something we questioned in our commentary.

What we did say is that women who bear children do have an inherent connection to the children they bear. This is true whether or not she enters into a surrogacy situation or an adoption contract. When a mom relinquishes her right to raise a child, which in some adoption cases is a wise and selfless thing do, she is still a mom. Adoption recognizes that reality and attempts to, at some level, redeem the brokenness. Surrogacy intentionally creates the brokenness. A mother-child relationship is created only to be knowingly and intentionally severed.

Adoption is proof that physically bearing children is not the only way a woman becomes a mother. Among the darkest evils of surrogacy is that it treats a mother as less than a whole person, wanted for her procreational parts that are increasingly treated as consumer products, especially as commercial surrogacy becomes more common (driven as it is today as part of the LGBTQ remaking of marriage and sexuality). Surrogacy also treats children as consumer products, instead of as gifts.

Life Chain Every First Friday at Warminster Planned Parenthood starting June 5th

Please join in prayer and public witness for the end of abortion on Friday, June 5th, 9:30 am to 10:30 am at Warminster Planned Parenthood, 610 Louis Drive
Good Friday Warminster PP 2020
Good Friday April 10, 2020, Warminster PP

Beginning this Friday, June 5th from 9:30 am to 10:30 am and continuing on the first Friday of each month, the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition is sponsoring a Life Chain. We will stand and pray directly across the street facing Planned Parenthood on Louis Drive. Signs will be provided. 

The Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition has as it’s primary goal to end abortion in SE Pennsylvania.  We are targeting Warminster Planned Parenthood which has been in operation for over twenty years.  It was granted a permit on the false premise that they would not do abortions.  A few years after it opened, it applied for a waiver and got approval from Warminster Township Supervisors to perform surgical abortions.

Fridays at Warminster Planned Parenthood are reserved for surgical and non-surgical abortions.  Many women are observed walking into the building with a friend, family member or their partner.  A few faithful pro-lifers gather to pray for these women to choose life for their babies.  Only the Lord knows how many babies were saved because of their prayerful presence.  Former abortion staff have reported that over 70% of abortion appointments are cancelled when pro-lifers are praying in front of their facility.  

Thank you for your prayers for women facing a crisis pregnancy.   Your presence and intercession for them could mean the difference between life and death for an unborn baby. We hope you can join us on Friday, June 5th at 9:30 am.
