By now, many of us are outraged by the stunt pulled by pop and teen idol, Miley Cyrus.

Does she realize that she is part of the problem of how many people are being exposed to the promiscuity in our culture?

Recently, Hannah Rickords, a young woman in her late teens countered Miley’s Facebook sharing her adoption story.

Read below:

Miley,

You teamed up with Planned Parenthood to share a message…

Here’s mine.

20 years ago, my biological mother walked into her Planned Parenthood pregnant and not sure where else to go. Measuring over 20 weeks, she was told they could move forward with termination. When she explained she wasn’t there for that kind of procedure, it was explained to her that was all the only help she could receive there.

My birth mom wrote:

“All I wanted was help. For someone to see me for the terrified young woman I was. I wanted someone to hold my hand and tell me everything was going to be okay. I quickly learned that this was not the place for that kind of reassurance. The woman quietly, but firmly, said she was sorry she couldn’t help me.”

If that day she had chosen abortion as her plan, I would not be here today. Regardless of what argument you could have of when life truly begins, if that day in that Planned Parenthood, a young girl was swayed to terminate, I would not be here.

Miley, what about my healthcare? What about the millions of people that will never see the light of day because “abortion is healthcare?”

As an unborn child, there wasn’t much I could do to contribute to society, but now as a 20-year-old being, I have been able to touch the lives of hundreds through a conference I held and my original music.

I am grateful every single day that my birthmother chose another plan for me.

I am grateful every single day that an adoption is an option.

Take action by sharing her photo on her social media platforms today. Adoption Story

Recap on Daily Vigils, Weekly Sidewalk Servants Sign-Up

Deb was at 777 appletree last Saturday praying to end abortion and handing out blessing bags… A young Spanish speaking girl approached the building. Deb spoke to her in Spanish and offered her help. The girl expressed that she would rather get help than end her pregnancy. Deb contacted the Community Women’s Center instantly and set her up for an appointment on Monday. Then she picked her up on Monday and took her to the appointment. At the appointment, this beautiful girl was loved and supported, and now she is definitely choosing life. If Deb was not there… if that hour was empty… if that young girl never encountered her and never learned about the help available… she would likely be mourning instead of rejoicing and preparing for her child.

Recap on Stand Against Bullying Rally

The hard work of many pro-lifers, such as Lila Rose, has paid off. After hearing about the videos of a so-called “State Rep.” Brian Sims harassing pro-life women was met by a thousand loving pro-lifers. Not only local pro-lifers came together but some went the extra mile (the furthest being Fort Wayne, IN. as of now).

60337653_425592831557398_4867662126489010176_n

The rally was organized by Lila Rose and her organization Live Action. Her group has helped expose Planned Parenthood from falsely advertising mammograms to the trafficking of fetal parts and everything in between.

Rose noted in her opening remarks that the event had been organized “for a much bigger reason … (to) stand for the dignity of human life,” this point was reiterated by other speakers who followed her during the rally.

Matt Walsh of the Daily Caller called for a rally in a series of tweets on Twitter. He even condemned the actions of Brian Sims.

Ashley Graechet

Ashley Garecht, the mother of the two teenage girls dox by Sims, used her time to commend pro-lifers who have done extraordinary work, despite backlash from people who disagree with them. She even knew that God wanted her to be an instrument in being present as a sidewalk advocate. She also observed that the demonstration took place just blocks from the one-time home of James Madison, a primary author of the U.S. Constitution, which enshrines “a self-evident, inalienable right to life,” she said. She also called out Rep. Sims for his lack of an apology.

60002590_428777874581856_7141839823593013248_n

In the videos, Sims claimed that pro-lifers are racists. Well, he hasn’t met Richara Krajewski, member of the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia. She used her time to acknowledge the fact that she is “a pro-life black woman”.

The real racism, as she points out is, “co-opting the language of liberation to advocate for the destruction of the lives of the most vulnerable. Real racism is a so-called white ally telling black and brown women that they need to choose between their dreams and their babies.”

Toni McFadden was another black pro-lifer at hand who shared about her abortion experience. Foundress of Relationship Matters, an organization that helps heal and honor our relationships, spoke about how it is important to develop them “so that no more babies need to die because of convenience.”

The main highlight of the rally is Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood Director in Bryan, TX, now a pro-life advocate. she wrote a memoir about her #WalkAway from the abortion industry. It is now a movie.  Johnson opened her remarks when she saw the escorts acknowledging the fact that she was once them.

She pointed out some staggering facts about the Planned Parenthood (See related post here: Planned Parenthood Facility in Center City, Defended by Re. Brian Sims, Has Failed Thirteen State Inspections) has “covering up statutory rape of minors, not sterilizing instruments that are being used woman to woman” and repeatedly failing health inspections.

“Turn your prayer into action. The fight against abortion will be won on the streets, not the halls of Congress or state houses” Johnson proclaimed.

60027514_1273375746172112_5567767638555230208_n

The rally itself shows that the pro-life community is bigger, stronger, younger, and diverse. It cares about women. It is eager to help women in their time of crisis. Many moms, including Candace with her son, was able to choose life because of the love and support of the pro-life community at large.

The pro-life movement is pushing back harder. The tide has changed. We must be willing to stand taller and be bolder everywhere we go.  We must not be afraid of anti-life bullying from public servants or average people that will verbally taunt us when we peacefully assemble outside abortion facilities, like Planned Parenthood.

The sleeping giant has awakened. It’s time to rose up and fight for life from womb to tomb.

 

 

Big Tech Suppressing Pro-Life Message?

Terry Beatley’s Hosea Initiative claims Big Tech suppressing opposing viewpoints through non-profit gatekeeper TechSoup.

Tech Soup declines non-profit application on the basis that the pro-life organization “discriminates”

Hosea Initiative is a pro-life non-profit organization with a mission – to fulfill a promise made to repentant NARAL Pro-Choice America founder Dr. Bernard Nathanson. (www.Hosea4You.org )

Terry Beatley of Hosea asks, “Why would Tech Soup reject the one pro-life, non-profit organization dedicated to Dr. Nathanson who so deeply regretted unleashing abortion onto America and who wanted to set the record straight?”

Tech Soup serves as gatekeepers of billions of dollars in the assistance offered by many of the big tech companies including Google, Microsoft, Dell, and Cisco. These companies make organizations register to Tech Soup before giving out these perks. It seems to Terry, that this has become a way for big-tech companies to suppress opposing viewpoints. Hosea went through this registration process before receiving a rather Orwellian rejection.

I feel this is just part of a wider censorship effort, says Beatley. “We have seen a pattern of social media and tech giants attempting to silence anyone who holds views other than their own.” Last November Facebook removed a pro-life ad supporting Tennessee Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn and more recently Twitter suspended Unplanned movie’s account only to reinstate it after a national outcry.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) held a Senate hearing on this very subject and proposed several solutions to Silicon Valley’s censorship practices: regulation, antitrust, and policing big tech’s fraud.

Hosea is seeking donations to help get around this embargo.

About Hosea Initiative: Terry Beatley who founded Hosea, promised Dr. Nathanson after he awoke to the evil he helped unleash, that she would reveal the eight-point scheme he used to deceive America.

In a rare interview in 2009, Terry Beatley accepted the pro-life mantle of Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the regretful cofounder of NARAL (National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Law, currently known as NARAL Pro-Choice America – a pro-abortion political action organization). He was once known as America’s “Abortion King” and is the father of America’s abortion industry.

Terry promised Dr. Nathanson that she would reveal the truth of how he deceived America’s media, courts, legislators, doctors, clergy and public with the insidious lie that abortion is synonymous to “women’s healthcare.”

Right before his death, Dr. Nathanson asked her to tell America the co-founder of NARAL says Abortion is not love – the world needs more love, stop the killing and love one another.

To help fulfill this promise, Terry established Hosea Initiative, an educational 501(c)3 organization. She named the organization after the Bible verse Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”

PBS Frontline Features Local Pro-Lifers

*The following is a review of Frontline’s latest episode that documented the abortion debate in Philly area; 36 years after it’s initial episode. Mark Harrington of Created Equal took time to put the episode under review. It was used with his permission.

In 1983, a decade after the Roe v. Wade decision, FRONTLINE went inside an abortion clinic on the outskirts of Chester, Pennsylvania and filmed Abortion Clinic. 

Almost four decades later, FRONTLINE returned to Pennsylvania to film FRONTLINE’s latest documentary, The Abortion Divide, which aired on April 23rd.

Here are my takeaways from the film:

• Transition to medical abortions: The key difference explored in the film is the availability of a non-surgical method of killing babies: RU-486, often called “the abortion pill.” In the film two women — Taryn and Megan — begin the process of a chemical abortion. They take one pill in the clinic and will take another at home. Of course, unlike in the movie unPlanned, the film doesn’t show what happened when the cramping and bleeding began!

• Abortion reality: The film shows the aftermath of a 6-week surgical abortion in the pathology room but covers over the flask containing an aborted baby killed in the procedure room. Oddly, the film tries to have it both ways by showing abortion but not really showing abortion since 6 features of week aborted babies are generally not recognizable due to be torn up through high powered suction catheter.

• Abortion pill lies: The complications and process of medical abortions are minimized in the documentary. One of the abortionists, Dr. Rebecca Mercier, says, “A medical abortion procedure is very similar to inducing a miscarriage. It is safe for women to do up to ten weeks of their pregnancy.” However, Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist, begs to differ. In a Live Action video, Dr. Levatino discusses the failure rates, risks, and adverse effects (i.e. abdominal pain, vomiting, heavy bleeding, and maternal death) from medical abortions.

• Ultrasounds matter: Despite some criticism of the Heartbeat Bills and other legislation requiring an ultrasound before an abortion, the film demonstrates how requiring an ultrasound affects the decision to abort.

• Pill reversals work: Dr. Monique Ruberu, an obstetrician-gynecologist who opposes abortion and counsels outside the abortion center, tells women who are exiting, “If you took the abortion pill, we can reverse it.”

• Restrictions on abortion facilities close clinics: Laws that require abortion facilities to meet the same requirements as ambulatory surgical centers closed eight abortion facilities in Pennsylvania.

• Authentic sidewalk advocates: Counselors are depicted as thoughtful, law-abiding, and sacrificial. One such counselor, George Asajiw, M.D., is shown taking at-risk families into his home.

• Pregnancy Resource Centers and homes for pregnant mothers are shown in a favorable light.

• Pro-lifers are vigilant: Now, with an abortion process that can begin by swallowing a pill, the film shows pro-lifers becoming more vigilant.

Dr. Ruberu says, “The RU-486 pill has completely changed the landscape of abortion, and it really necessitates that somebody is present outside of these abortion centers every single day, every hour that they’re open,” she says.

Finally, one of the most disturbing parts of the film is when Taryn, a mother of two who became pregnant with twins, says:

“What I hope I feel is a sense of peace, not only with myself and the decision that I’ve made but also a sense of peace with these two beings that I’ve chosen not to bring into the world. Thank you for choosing me. And I’m honored to be given this gift of life. I can’t do it right now. I can’t accept that mantle in terms of the other lives that I’m taking care of and I’m responsible for.”

One thing is clear in the film, there is no getting away from the fact that abortion is sad and tragic despite the attempts of some abortion advocates to destigmatize it.

Considering the source, overall, the documentary is fair treatment of the abortion debate in America.

Pro-Life Censorship Hits Local Organization

It should come as no surprise that groups who are preaching the messages of truth and love are coming under attack by the mainstream media with its censorship.

Not only have liberals silenced the success of recent pro-life movies such as Gosnell,  which debuted at No. 1 in the box office and in time became a successful independent film, and soon to be released Unplanned, which tells the story of Abby Johnson and how she saw the truth behind the abortion industry after watching an unborn child being killed by an ultrasound-guided abortion.

In addition to movies with right-leaning messages, the liberal censorship has also hit many organizations that counter the toxic messages sent out by left-wing commentators, entertainment and public figures. One local organization in Philadelphia called The Culture Project has become victims or such censorship. Founded in 2014 by Cristina Barba, the organization’s mission is to “proclaim the dignity of the human person and the richness of living sexual integrity, inviting our culture to become fully alive.” (From their website). Today the organization is present in Los Angeles and San Francisco California, Toledo, OH (they will launch a group in Cleveland this coming fall), and a travel team.

One way the organization has done this is through their media initiative that was launched last year. They are present on Facebook, Instagram, and even a weekly video series on their Youtube Channel. (Subscribe to their channel here: Culture Project)

In an email that was sent out by the organization this morning, they have raised an alarming pattern. At first, they have received tremendous responses from young people and even parents. Their most viewed video was  “A Toxic LACK of Masculinity”  with 150,977 views. A missionary shared how she saw no man protect her dignity while being sexually harassed in downtown Philadelphia.

All of that began to change. Some of their newest videos struggle to reach 2,000 views. Despite paying for boosts on their Facebook outlet, they began noticing that their videos were flagged and suppressed because of their chastity and pro-life references.

The organization has asked for everyone to visit their channel, share their videos with family and friends, and most importantly pray for them.

Irony: the most popular platforms are okay with vulgar videos with raunchy content no one bats an eye, yet when a group offers a counter message, the mediums loses their minds. What has this world come to?
