NOLA Episcopal priest welcomes Planned Parenthood

annunciationbaerby Kelli

I write to express my support for the right of the clinic to be there and to serve the reproductive needs of our community…. I also write to make clear that there are many Christians, Christian denominations and many other people of faith who support the reproductive rights of women….

I am very disappointed with some fellow Christian people and churches who have made threats of exclusion and boycotts to congregants who wish to work with the clinic.

As a parish church that is named for the most wondrous conception in history, we welcome the Planned Parenthood clinic to the neighborhood.

It will serve a very important role in education, health screenings, contraception and, when necessary, a safe place for the termination of pregnancy.

~ Rev. Walter Baer of the Episcopal Church of the Annunciation, in a letter to the New Orleans Advocate, as quoted by LifeNews.com, September 23

Planned Parenthood praises deceased actress Polly Bergen

Polly Bergenby Carder

Sad to hear of the passing of Polly Bergen – an unforgettable talent and a beloved friend of Planned Parenthood.

~ Planned Parenthood’s Twitter feed on the death of post-abortive singer/actress Polly Bergen. According to Yahoo! TV, her publicist, Judy Katz, announced that “in lieu of flowers, her family is asking that donations be made to Planned Parenthood.”

Added the LA Times:

Bergen also was an ardent feminist, campaigning for the Equal Rights Amendment and women’s reproductive rights. She spoke publicly about having had an illegal abortion when she was a 17-year-old band singer - a procedure that she said prevented her from bearing children for the rest of her life.

Pro-life blog buzz 9-23-14

  • A Culture of Life says another study from India – that makes 12 now, from that nation alone – shows a “very strong link between abortion between abortion and breast cancer:

    The average “odds ratio” of developing breast cancer in each of the studies was at least 1. But the average “odds ratio” for all 12 studies came out at 5.54. [Steven] Mosher [of the Population Research Institute] explains that this means a woman has “a 554% increased risk of developing breast cancer” if she has had an induced abortion….Mosher points out that India is a great place to do this sort of study as the women “marry early, do not use the pill, have multiple pregnancies, and breastfeed their babies. In other words, all of the other major risk factors for breast cancer are… absent.”

50,000,000! When we reached that abortion toll, I woke up, in a way, to the horror of this ongoing holocaust. I wished then, before Internet, email, and computers in every home, there was a way to give names for all those babies. No way!

But the idea of 50millionnames.org was conceived.

Pro-life vid of day: New movie details threats to religious freedom

by Hans Johnson

Former Senator Rick Santorum, once a 2012 presidential candidate, is now CEO of Echolight Studios, which is distributing a new documentary called One Generation Away to churches later this month. It is intended to “wake up the Church” to the many current encroachments on religious and cultural freedom.

Among the participants in the film is Hobby Lobby President Steve Green, who says: “Life begins at conception. Never in our 237 years as a republic has any government decree made us fund the taking of innocent human life as a condition of continuing business.”

The documentary’s title comes from a famous quote made by President Ronald Reagan. Here is the trailer for the film:

Judging: The “only sin recognized in an abortion practice”

please don't judge me (1)by Kelli

Ronan tells more about the patients and their reactions to the abortions.

Some cry and shake. One cheekily chatted up the abortion staff and offered them discounts at her jewelry store. Ronan finds the distressed ones much easier to work with, though she stresses that she is not judging the matter-of-fact ones. She says that “Pain breaks down barriers” and makes it easier to do her hand-holding and hair-stroking.

She doesn’t touch on any incongruity between the banality of abortion as a routine medical procedure and the tiny arm in the bucket.

To do so, after all, would be to judge, which seems to be the only sin recognized in an abortion practice.

They’ve been taught, after all, to see no sin in a grown man impregnating an 11-year-old girl….

She accepts the mangled little bodies as the price that is paid for “a woman’s life, allowed to proceed as she wants it to.” As if that 11-year-old girl is a woman whose life, after she leaves the facility, will proceed as she wants it to.

For her, for all but the most flippant women, it’s not over. It’s never over.

Miss “Planned Parenthood” America kicked out of sorority for hazing

Jezebel is reporting today that Kazantsev, who served as Alpha Phi’s head of recruitment at Hofstra University on Long Island, was ejected from her sorority that same month for abusing pledges:

Placenta encapsulation specialist shares abortion story

by Carderdiary

I feel like I didn’t realize how much I needed to tell this story until it was happening…. And how I felt afterwards really showed me a part of myself that had stopped kind of living after the abortion experience.

It just reopened a part of my life that I had closed so firmly…. I feel like whenever you close something like that, other things are affected, other parts of yourself are affected….

It’s more of a subtle inward change that I experienced.

~ Amanda Englund, post-abortive mother, doula, and professional placental encapsulation service specialist on how she arrived at sharing her abortion story on The Abortion Diary Podcast, Huffington Post, September 18

What the Media says »

by Kelli

jessa-duggarCosmo went into full anti-woman mode. [Writer Jill] Filipovic attacked Jessa Duggar for daring to put history into perspective….

Jessa’s remarks on Instagram conveyed a profound understanding of the past and applied it to the present. Over 56 million human lives have been butchered by an abortion industry birthed in the same racist and elitist pseudoscience of eugenics that created the racial hygiene theory that led to the slaughter of millions in the Holocaust….

Abortion and the Holocaust are so inextricably tied together, no amount of airbrushing could paint a different picture. The American Eugenics movement was the single-most potent influencer of Hitler’s ethnic and racial cleansing “solutions”. Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member of the American Eugenics Society (AES). Guttmacher Institute’s founder, Alan F. Guttmacher (also President of Planned Parenthood) was the Vice President of AES. Most leadership involved in Planned Parenthood throughout the early to late 20th century, were involved in the American Eugenics Movement.

Prior to the holocaust, Sanger, like her fellow eugenicists, was a staunch proponent of forced sterilizations (only changing her tune to “voluntary” sterilization after the Holocaust revealed what happens when her rhetoric becomes reality)….

This led to our country’s forcible sterilization of over 60,000 people. Nazi Germany modeled its actions after what was already happening here in the United States.

Sanger helped to create the World Population Conferences, a global gathering of leading eugenicists, to promote birth control and other forms of population control. One… was Eugen Fischer…. Sanger included [him] as a contributing leader in her World Population Conference as evidenced here in the program for the event…. It was Fischer’s “racial hygiene theory” that Hitler adopted leading to the mass extermination of over 11 million precious lives.

Frederick Osborn (1889-1981), President of The American Eugenics Society, infamously declared in response to Roe v. Wade: “Birth Control and abortion are turning out to be the great eugenic advances of our time.”…

Jessa Duggar isn’t blinded to history by the broken lens of liberal feminism. The only thing deranged about tying abortion to the holocaust is deniers like Cosmo and its writers who think abortion is simply a fashionable choice.

~ Ryan Bomberger, Townhall.com, October 1

holocaustJessa’s full remarks via Instagram:

I walked through the Holocaust Museum again today… very sobering. Millions of innocents denied the most basic and fundamental of all rights–their right to life. One human destroying the life of another deemed “less than human.” Racism, stemming from the evolutionary idea that man came from something less than human; that some people groups are “more evolved” and others “less evolved.” A denying that our Creator–GOD–made us human from the beginning, all of ONE BLOOD and ONE RACE, descendants of Adam. The belief that some human beings are “not fit to live.” So they’re murdered. Slaughtered. Kids with Down syndrome or other disabilities. The sickly. The elderly. The sanctity of human life varies not in sickness or health, poverty or wealth, elderly or pre-born, little or lots of melanin [making you darker or lighter skinned], or any other factor. “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it? and He that keepeth thy soul, doth not He know it? and shall not He render to every man according to his works?” (Proverbs 24:10-12) May we never sit idly by and allow such an atrocity to happen again. Not this generation. We must be a voice for those who cannot speak up for themselves. Because EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS. #ProLife
