He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?  (Micah 6:8)

This is the time that we pause and reflect on the old year and make our resolutions for the new year. My Pro-life friends and Inew-year-baby have resolved to redouble our efforts to make this a better world for those who are unjustly oppressed and no one is more egregiously oppressed than helpless unborn babies.

We have been mortified that so many tiny human beings, made in the image of God, are treated as if they don’t have any value. Let us work hard to end the slaughter.

For many years now women of courage such as Lila Rose, Abby Johnson, and Marjorie Dannenfelser have fought to protect life each on a different front of the battle for life.

They have reported many exciting accomplishments in 2015 and my prayer is that Pro-life men and women will build on that in 2016. Here are some of the top stories of 2015:

Lila Rose – Live Action News:

lila roseOne of the most important things that occurred in 2015 was the exposure of Planned Parenthood as an organization whose main purpose is to profit from the killing of the unborn. Americans are so outraged that there was even legislation passed in both houses of Congress to stop funding this abortion giant.

Here is a summary of an article explaining why American opinion is changing and there is hope to finally end the killing of the unborn.

From an article on their website – liveactionnews.org – December 26, 2015:

“5 terrible things Americans learned about Planned Parenthood in 2015” –

  1. Planned Parenthood, who receives $1.5 million PER DAY, wants abortion to be plentiful. Their slogan of “safe, legal, and rare” is a sham.
  2. Planned Parenthood knows that abortion takes the life of a baby. Vice President of of Planned Parenthood, Dr. Savita Ginde said on tape, “It’s a baby.”It's a baby
  3. Planned Parenthood actually does abort babies who could survive outside the womb. Live Action News investigated PP’s own clinic websites and found at least 6 PP clinics that do in fact perform abortions after viability (the time when a baby could survive on its own outside the womb). Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood flat out lied when she said, “We don’t provide abortions after, um, viability.”
  4. Planned Parenthood has been harvesting baby body parts and organs. 2015 brought one of the strongest modern indictments against Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry:  the undercover work of The Center for Medical Progress. CMP’s string of stunning videos showed PP executive after PP executive haggling, negotiating, and laughing over the body parts of aborted babies. Here is just one quote from Dr. Savita Ginde, “We’re doing procedures at 17 weeks, so we have fairly large identifiable parts. … And we’re planning on going to from 18 to 20 weeks by the end of the year.”
  5. Planned Parenthood lies. And lies. And lies and lies and lies. In one single interview given by Cecile Richards eleven bold-faced lies were told. Just one example will suffice: Planned Parenthood tells women that the baby does not have a heartbeat until around 17 weeks of pregnancy. Actually the baby’s heart can be heard beating by three weeks after conception.

Lila Rose and Live Action plan to “keep educating America on the truth that Planned Parenthood fails to tell: every single baby is a precious human being, deserving of a chance at life.” Please join her organization and help her.

Abby Johnson – And Then There Were None:

Another champion of life for babies is Abby Johnson. Abby thought that she was helping women when she went to work at aAbby_Johnson_high_quality_810_500_55_s_c1 Planned Parenthood clinic as a young woman. Everything changed when she actually witnessed an abortion in 2009. She watched in horror as a 13-week baby fought, and ultimately lost, its life at the hand of the abortionist. Now Abby travels around the globe to share her story and to expose Planned Parenthood. She has started a ministry, And Then There Were None, to help abortion workers get out of the abortion clinics. To this date Abby has helped nearly 200 workers leave the abortion industry.

Recently in an article in LifeSiteNews.com, Abby had this good news to share for 2015:

“6% of abortion workers have left industry in last four years – nearly 200 people”

Abby reported: 197 people have left the industry through its outreach and education efforts.

Now, says Abby, “the majority of workers come to us because they have heard about our ministry from sidewalk advocates. We owe much of our success to those who go to the clinics to spread a message of hope to all who enter the facility.”

“We have found that most of the workers contact us because there has been a moment of clarity for them in regards to the humanity of the unborn. It may be something in their own personal lives, like the birth of a baby or a miscarriage. More often, it involves a child who was killed by abortion.”

While thousands of people still work in the shrinking abortion industry, Abby says her group is making a difference. “We estimate that there are approximately 3200 individuals who work in abortion facilities. We have been able to assist more than 6% of the industry’s workers in their conversion. That 6% has the power to turn the abortion industry upside down.”

“Also, out of the 197 workers who have left, 6 of them are abortionists who permanently put down their life destroying instruments and now fight to save lives! We firmly believe that our vision is a key component in ending the culture of death. If we can make the abortion industry so unattractive to health care providers, they will be forced to close because of limited or no staff. We have already seen that happen in multiple locations because of the workers who have come through ATTWN.”

In addition to helping people leave the abortion industry, ATTWN helps former workers find new jobs. “For those who are licensed healthcare providers, such as doctors, nurses, medical assistants, they will almost always stay in the medical field,” she explains. “Some of the workers who have come through our ministry now work in prolife pregnancy centers or medical clinics. It is such a beautiful vision of transformation and redemption.” This is wonderful news! Please join Abby and help in this effort.

We praise God for Abby and pray that many more workers will quit their jobs in abortion clinics. This ultimately cuts down on the number of deaths of unborn babies.

Marjorie Dannenfelser – Susan B. Anthony List

majorieA true soldier of Christ on the legislative front of the battle is Marjorie Dannenfelser. While Lila is busy exposing the Planned Parenthood groups for the frauds that they are, and Abby is helping abortion workers to leave the clinics, Marjorie is battling to get people put into office who can help change the laws that are allowing the baby killing to go on or in passing legislation that will end the holocaust.

Marjorie’s good news for 2015 is that many groups have put before Congress a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. This bill has passed both houses, but of course the paid puppet of Planned Parenthood, Barack Obama, is expected to veto it. Please be in prayer this year that sane and compassionate voices will override the president’s veto.

My New Year’s resolution is to be even more supportive of these three women and their organizations. Lila Rose and Live Action News are leading the charge into the abortion industry itself reporting on what is really going on. The truth about the abortion industry is being exposed; Americans are waking up; babies’ lives are being saved. Abby Johnson with her organization, And Then There Were None, is compassionately working with abortion workers bringing them truth and healing. Many are turning around and joining the fight to protect the unborn. Marjorie Dannenfelser with the Susan B. Anthony List is working tirelessly to get people elected who will change the laws that are promoting the killing of the unborn. Part of my resolution is to pray for these women more constantly. The other part is to send them a donation.

I pray the many others will do the same. Consider making this one of your New Year’s resolutions too! May this be a Happy and Safe Year for the unborn!

There are some mighty courageous women in our country who are putting all of their energy into saving the most vulnerable of women – the unborn. We need to pray for these women as they do battle in a political climate that seems to favor doing away with unborn babies. Who would have thought one hundred years ago that the women who think it is all right to murder their own offspring would have the political clout, including the ear of the president of the United States, to make laws ensuring that they continue to have the “right” to kill their unborn babies?

How can murder be legalized? This situation is so unreal it feels more like the Twilight Zone than reality.

Into this insanity have stepped three really remarkable women who are trying to do something about reversing the holocaust against the unborn. We should pray for these women every day as they face attacks from Planned Parenthood and other baby killers. There are also thousands of sidewalk counselors and volunteers who face threats from the public, clinic workers, and now even the IRS. Let us pray for them and also remember to pray for the victims of rape or incest as they make the brave decision to keep their babies rather than succumb to the pressure to do away with them.

1.  Lila Rose – Lila needs our prayers as she fearlessly tells the truth. lila roseUnderstandably, Planned Parenthood hates her with a passion. Go to (LiveActionNews.org) and see how time after time the abortionists have been caught lying on camera. Evil hates good; liars hate truth-tellers. Planned Parenthood does not want the truth exposed; they hate Lila Rose. They want to tell you they are all about health care (not the baby’s of course). They want to say that abortion is only a tiny part of what they do. Thanks to Lila and Live Action the truth is coming out. Live Action goes in with undercover cameras and lets the Planned Parenthood employees reveal the truth in their own words. Though PP never talks about abortion in public, when a woman goes to the clinic that is the main option she will be offered. As the war between women heats up, pray for General Lila.

2.  Marjorie Dannenfelser – General Marjorie is fighting the battle on the marjorie dannenfelserpolitical front. While Lila is busy exposing the Planned Parenthood groups for the frauds that they are, Marjorie is battling to get people put into office who can help change the laws that are allowing the baby killing to go on. As head of the Susan B. Anthony List, she has also targeted elected officials who have voted for public funding of abortion such as former congressman Driehaus. Driehaus was so sure of his pro-death friends that he was shocked that he could lose an election. He tried to sue SBA, but he failed because the Susan B. Anthony organization was only telling the truth. Marjorie needs our prayers as she tirelessly fights for the babies.

3.  Abby Johnson – You can read more about Abby in my March 2012 posting on her. Abby is a former Planned Parenthood clinic operator who became pro-life. abbyjohnsonShe has worked every day since then to expose the lies and illegal actions of PP. For example, Planned Parenthood clinics were billing for procedures that they never did. In Washington State alone, Planned Parenthood defrauded the taxpayers in upwards of $99 million in waste or possible fraud, including the illegal taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion-related procedures. Overbilling was rampant according to audits launched by officials in pro-abortion states according to the Alliance Defending Freedom group who filed a suit against Planned Parenthood.

No one else questions this sacrosanct organization but Abby does. Planned Parenthood took her to court to try and silence her. Thank God, Abby is not silent. Pray for her and read her book – “unPlanned”. You will get great insights into the horror of abortion and the real terrorism of Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is not about women’s health. They talk about mammograms, but they do not have one single machine in any of their clinics. In fact, their clinic workers have very little working knowledge of them. They don’t need to know anything about women’s health really since 91% of the pregnant women who go to a PP clinic will have an abortion. Abortion is what Planned Parenthood is about. It’s how they make a great deal of their profits. In a January 2013 article (LifeSiteNews.com) reports, “For decades now, Planned Parenthood has operated the most proficient killing machine in the United States,” said Douglas R. Scott, Jr., president of LDI, in a press release. “And the machine has set yet another record.”

The report notes that in 2011-2012 PPFA “slaughtered a record 333,964 preborn children, generating an estimated $150 million,” and that overall nearly $1.2 billion in revenue was generated.

“PPFA’s income included a hefty and ever-increasing check from American taxpayers. In 2009-2010, government funding reached a whopping $487.4 million. In 2010-2011 the figure jumped to $538.5 million. The total for 2011-2012 reached a staggering $542.4 million, which represents 45.2 percent of the group’s total annual budget,” the report states.

Scott said PPFA’s greatest ally has always been public ignorance of its agenda and activities.”

Yes, Planned Parenthood is counting on you to believe their lies, but whistleblowers like Abby Johnson are exposing them. Pray for Abby as she marches into the fray head on.

4. Pray for Crisis Pregnancy Centers and all of their workers. Thank God for the new technology of ultrasound machines. Women are seeing live pictures of their unborn babies in their wombs. The number of pregnant women who choose to let their babies live is increasing due to the fact that they can see their babies. Planned Parenthood has tried (and succeeded in the state of Oregon) to get laws crisis-pregnancy-centerpassed that force restrictions on Crisis Pregnancy Centers. Pray for the centers in your state and send them some money!

Here is another of the lies of PP exposed. They say they offer choice. But they don’t. 91% of the women “choose” abortion. It’s the main, if not only, option offered. In Oregon, Crisis Pregnancy Centers now have to post signs saying they don’t do abortions. The Crisis Pregnancy Centers offer help and let the woman choose what to do. No, they won’t do abortions but they pray for the women who choose to go somewhere else. If they have to post a sign, then I think it would be fair for the Planned Parenthood clinics to have to post one too saying, “We kill babies here.”

5.  Please pray for the victims of rape. They are under intense pressure to abort their babies. It is well known that many people who are normally against abortion make an exception for rape or incest. They don’t understand why a woman might want to keep a baby conceived with a wicked man. But in actuality, 70% of rape victims choose to keep their babies. Loving support and healthy, nonjudgmental attitudes from family and friends reduces what otherwise might seem a burden. It is not the woman’s fault; it is not the baby’s fault either and the baby should not pay the penalty. These women are committing truly selfless acts. They deserve our support.

The trial of the “House of Horrors” abortionist Kermit Gosnell is putting the war on unborn women in a bad light. We are sorry such horrible things have happened. Now, let us pray that the truth will continue to be exposed. Pray very hard for the women who are in the forefront of the fight. And please, support their work by spreading their stories and with generous donations.
