Grandpa Paid to Abort Pretty Girl: Brooke Shields

23 11 2018

In a world gone mad, it’s not uncommon for parents to pay for their children to terminate an unwanted pregnancy. The recent revelation by superstar, Brooke Shields that her grandfather paid her mom to terminate her is insane.

According to Life news.com, Shields writes in her book that, when her mother became pregnant, her boyfriend did not appear ready to assume the role of father. He told his own Dad, who in turn, decided to convince her mother to “terminate the pregnancy.” Her grandfather explained to her mother how an out-of-wedlock birth could jeopardize her father’s standing on the “Social Registry.” Her granddad even went so far as to give her mother money for the abortion (This was pre-Roe v. Wade).
Instead of visiting an abortionist, her mother went to an antique store and used the money to buy a coffee table.

Shields remarks that the table ironically became a favorite of hers, which she used to pull herself up from the floor as a toddler.

She writes, “The table saved my life and helped me to stand.”

It is hard to imagine the pop culture landscape without Brooke Shields. To think someone of such beauty and grace could have had her life ended before birth is so mind-boggling. Shields is a mother herself, so an entire family could easily have been swept away if her mother had chosen to cave into pressure and abort.

How many stars have been lost to abortion? You might think it’s impossible to count, but actually the number is more than 56 million. For every child who is aborted is a star in God’s galaxy—every single life has value and dignity.

We now just have one more beautiful face to remember as we contemplate the thin line between life and death in our world today.

To every, parent or grandparent who has a granddaughter pregnant out of wedlock or a son who has got some girl pregnant out of wedlock: that, pregnancy… that child may be the greatest blessing and support in your old age. Help her keep it and find out.





MEET THE BABY THAT WAS BORN TWICE 

26 10 2016


This story tells you a lot about the hypocrisy and falsehood of abortion justifications. Many think and preach that embryos and fetuses are not humans and hence can be terminated at will, but the evidence is so clear that the denial can be baffling. Our help is in God. http://edition.cnn.com/2016/10/20/health/baby-born-twice-fetal-surgery/index.html?sr=fbCNN102116baby-born-twice-fetal-surgery1143AMStoryLink&linkId=30195463





How Mother Teresa helped Reggie Littlejohn to Battle ‘Gendercide’

6 09 2016

The founder of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers recounts her experiences in Kolkata, which granted her insight into the infinite dignity of all persons — especially abandoned girls.

 

 

ROME — St. Teresa of Kolkata, who was canonized by Pope Francis on Sept. 4, had a major influence on Reggie Littlejohn, founder of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, an organization campaigning to end forced abortion and gendercide in China.

In an interview with the Register in May, Littlejohn pointed out that, despite the implementation in China of a two-child — rather than one-child — policy at the beginning of the year, forced abortions, mostly of baby girls, will continue on an enormous scale. She also explained how her organization’s “Save a Girl” campaign has saved many lives and how International Planned Parenthood Federation is working “hand in hand” with China’s population-control machine.

In this new interview with the Register in Rome, Littlejohn explains how her experience of working in one of Mother Teresa’s homes for abandoned children taught her the infinite value and dignity of all human life. She also recounts how her first encounter with gendercide took place in India.

 

What brought you to India to help Mother Teresa in Kolkata?

My husband and I went to Kolkata as part of a trip around the world. I was a student at Yale Law School; he was a student at Yale Divinity School. We both took a year out of school to travel around the world with money I had made as a summer associate working for a big European law firm. It’s amazing you can make enough money in a summer in New York to go around the world for a year. In any case, we were in Kolkata for six weeks, and Mother Teresa was there the whole time.

 

How did she influence the work you do now?

Mother Teresa began this home, Shishu Bhavan, for babies by picking a baby girl out of a trash can. [Mother Teresa opened the home for abandoned street babies and children in 1955.] In fact, my first contact with gendercide was in India. I was there years before I took my husband. I was there alone in Varanasi, and I wanted to take a boat ride on the Ganges. Just as I was stepping into the boat, I looked down into the water and, there, saw a fully formed, perfectly beautiful baby girl just floating, dead in the water.

 

How did you react?

I was utterly appalled, and I pointed her out to the boatman. He said, “Don’t worry about it. It’s nothing; it’s nothing.” I will never, ever forget that little baby girl just floating there in the water and the attitude of: “It’s nothing. Don’t look at that; it’s nothing.” So that was my initial encounter with sex-selective abortion or infanticide. This was infanticide; she looked as though she had been born, maybe a month old or something — I don’t know. Mother Teresa began her home for baby girls by picking up one little girl out of a trash can, these lives that are considered to be worthless.

 

What memories do you have of volunteering there?

I remember working one morning at Shishu Bhavan, and I was given the job of feeding this child who was about three-feet long, weighed about 20 pounds, and her spine was twisted like a dish rag. All of her limbs were going off in different directions. I thought she was maybe about 3 years old. I asked the sister how old she was, and she said about 21 or 22 years old. Her jaw had never really formed, so I was trying to feed her this porridge. She was lying up in bed; I held her head up and the porridge — she’d eat some, but most of it would pour down her chin and rest on her chest. So if I put her head back, the porridge would go out of the sides of her mouth and into her ears and into her hair. A sister was walking by, and I said: “How do I feed her? I don’t know what to do.” The sister said: “You’re doing just fine; that’s the way she eats.”

Then the sister said: “Why don’t you talk to her?” And I realized that, in my mind, because her body was so racked, I just assumed her mind would be the same way. But the sister said she understood English and Bengali, so I thought, “What am I going to say to this young woman?” I couldn’t think of what to say. I finally said: “So how did you find your breakfast?” And she broke into the sunniest smile — there was so much joy and so much love radiating in her smile, and I immediately saw that she was a spiritual giant; and I was a spiritual midget because, in those circumstances, I would never have been smiling like that. She had a smile that could light up the world.

Then I understood Mother Teresa’s position: Every single life, no matter what the circumstances, no matter what the disability, is infinitely precious, and everyone deserves to be saved. And I’m so glad I can talk about this young woman because I want her witness to be out there. Her life was worth living because I’m telling you about this, and maybe you’ll tell more people about it. But that’s a huge inspiration for me.

 

It underlines the dignity of every individual.

The dignity of every individual, and the determination to save them, and that is the bedrock of my determination — to save these girls in China. It’s the impetus. They have an equal dignity to boys and have infinite value. They are infinitely precious, every single one of them.

 

And that inspiration goes back to Mother Teresa.

Yes, it goes back to her.

 

 





Colorado Spring Shooting: Planned Parenthood Filling Freezers with Headless Children

6 12 2015

HomePg_2011-11-29

This week, a 57-year-old man named Robert Lewis Dear opened fire near and inside a Planned Parenthood near Colorado Springs, Colorado, resulting in three fatalities and nine other casualties. The abortion movement has lost no time utilizing the incident to distract from the recent revelations that they are supplying the dismembered organs and body parts of pre-born boys and girls to researchers by asserting that they, in fact, are victims of the pro-life movement.

The abortion movement is desperate to attribute these murders to someone opposed to the killing that they commit as a matter of business. The Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada announced on Facebook that: “Despite the pretense that ‘it is too early to speculate about a motive,’ it’s obvious what the motive almost certainly was.” This despite the fact that staff at the Planned Parenthood clinic were not targeted or victimized. The motives are obvious to those who desperately need them to be obvious for PR purposes, but not at all obvious to the authorities who have Dear in their custody. As usual, the abortion movement is attempting to use corpses to get ahead.

What we do know about Robert Lewis Dear reveals someone seriously disturbed, a man remarkably absent from the Internet, and strange, to say the least:

According to the Associated Press, 57-year-old Dear split his time between a house in Swannanoa, N.C., and a remote cabin without electricity or running water in Black Mountain, about 15 miles outside Asheville, N.C.

Neighbor James Russell told the AP that Dear typically kept to himself and that on the occasions when they did speak, Dear avoided eye contact and rambled about a variety of unrelated topics. However, Russell said, he’d never heard Dear talk about religion or abortion.

The AP also reported that on Saturday, Dear’s cabin was adorned with a cross made of twigs.

Other news outlets have traced Dear’s roots back to South Carolina, where police records indicate a history of arrests and domestic and neighbor disputes dating back to the mid-1990s.

The Daily Beast has reported that Dear was arrested in 2002 on peeping Tom charges that were later dismissed and again in 2003 on animal cruelty charges for which he was found not guilty.

According to police records obtained by the Daily Beast, Dear’s then-next-door neighbors Lynn Roberts and her husband reported that Dear “had been making unwanted advancements,” “leering at Ms. Roberts on a regular basis,” and had been seen peering into their home from the bushes on more than one occasion. In July 2002, Roberts apparently obtained a restraining order against her neighbor.

It gets weirder, too:

Dear was married for several years. He and his wife, Pamela Ross, divorced in 2000. Originally from South Carolina, he has also lived in North Carolina and was most recently in Colorado. His apparent dating ad, which you can see below, is seeking women for “A discreet relationship, Casual sex, BDSM, A long term relationship, Spanking.”

I hesitated in writing this column. After all, tragedy is tragedy, and injustice is injustice. The fact that people were murdered by this bizarre killer is one that should sadden us all, and for many reasons. One of the police officers murdered by Dear, Officer Garrett Swasey, was a pro-life co-pastor at Hope Chapel, Colorado, a husband and father of two children. My fellow pro-lifer Scott Klusendorf, a prominent anti-abortion speaker, noted that he “was a Christian pastor whose church opposed abortion. (I know, I spoke there several years ago.)” The pro-life movement mourns the killing of this advocate for life, who died defending life.

It’s interesting, isn’t it, how the Left functions. If an Islamic terrorist shoots up a theatre, he is “not a real Muslim” and “not following the peaceful tenets of True Islam.” However, if some strange nutcase opens fire outside a Planned Parenthood and proceeds to murder a pro-life pastor police officer, immediately we are all to assume that this person is definitely a Real Christian, and represents All Christians.

If every peace-loving adherent of the Muslim faith should not be asked to apologize for ISIS-inspired Muslims, as the media never ceases to solemnly inform us, then I see no reason that the appalled pro-life movement should be asked to apologize for this deranged idiot who decided to shoot at pro-life police officers from a Planned Parenthood facility. If the nice Muslim couple who lives next door have no reason to reiterate that they, too, find the barbarism of ISIS reprehensible, than the pro-life movement, which has always condemned murder, should not have to pretend they have anything to apologize for when some madman murders a pro-life pastor and others from a Planned Parenthood clinic.

We will not allow Planned Parenthood and the abortion movement to climb atop a “moral high ground” created from the chopped-up body parts of human beings they have dismembered to smear the pro-life movement with accusations of violent rhetoric. The abortion industry, by, is killing human beings. Skull-crushing techniques are discussed at presentations in their conferences, and a baby’s eyeball accidentally dropping into an abortionist’s lap is their idea of a laugh. For us to oppose this barbarism while also condemning the violent actions of an unstable recluse at a clinic in Colorado is to be consistent with what we believe.

It’s impossible to deny that Dear hurt the pro-life movement. Regardless of his motives, Planned Parenthood now gets to play the victim and pretend that they are not the purveyors of violence, but the recipients of it. They can unleash hell on pre-born boys and girls day in, day out, filling freezers and Stericycle trucks with headless children and severed limbs—and then turn around and accuse a movement dedicated to exposing and stopping these horrors with “violent rhetoric.” Sorry, but that’s not “violent rhetoric”—it’s a description of what Planned Parenthood does, and often in their own words.

That’s why Planned Parenthood is saying that condemning the shootings is not enough—political candidates and pro-life activists and media outlets must condemn what they claim, without a shred of evidence, led to this shooting. In other words, they want those exposing Planned Parenthood’s violent work to back off and shut up. It’s not going to work. The pro-life movement had nothing to do with this violent psycho. He was not a pro-lifer. He was not a Christian in any real sense of the word. And we won’t be distracted from exposing the violence going on within the walls of Planned Parenthood clinics every day.

Because all human life is inherently valuable, whether that life was ended by a madman’s gun or an abortionist’s forceps.

Look mum, you wanted to abort me and now I’m the one whos pulling the purse-strings: Ronaldo

19 07 2014

cristiano-ronaldo-438-family1
Nothing best demonstrates the evil of abortion than the recent admission by Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum that she wanted to abort the star. Inside her recently released autobiography Me Coragem (which translates to Mother Courage) , mother of Cristiano Ronaldo, Dolores Aveiro, claimed that she attempted to abort him when she was pregnant by ‘drinking warm beer’ and ‘running until she dropped’
Although she did not give any reason for wanting to abort her unborn child, Dolores said she had approached her doctor to carry out the abortion but he didn’t agree with it and refused to do it. She then resorted to doing it herself by drinking warm beer and running with the hope that she would lose the pregnancy.
“I wanted to abort but the doctor didnt support my decision, she wrote in her autobiography.
Speaking at the launch of the autobiography in Lisbon yesterday, Dolores said that Ronaldo already knew about his past and even joked about it. “He told me when he found out, ‘Look mum, you wanted to abort me and now I’m the one whos pulling the purse-strings in the house,’ she said. I hope Planned Parenthood and a number of abortion agencies are listening. Every child come with one mouth to feed, two hands to help and one head to innovate, and in the case of Christiano Ronaldo, two legs to dazzle.





Abortion Clinic: Sad Place To Work Says A Nurse By Natalie Hoefer

 Abortion Clinic: Sad Place To Work Says A Nurse By Natalie Hoefer

INDIANAPOLIS (CNS) — For two-and-a-half years, Marianne Anderson worked at a place she now describes as “a money-grubbing, evil, sad, sad place to work.”

From early 2010 through July 2012, Anderson was a nurse who, among other duties, dispersed sedatives intravenously to clients at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Indianapolis. That center is the state’s largest provider of abortions.

When she started working there, Anderson said she was “on the fence about abortion.”

“I think a lot of it came from working at Wishard (Hospital in Indianapolis) and seeing girls that had attempted abortion themselves,” she said. She thought women should have a “safe place” to go for abortion.

In an interview with The Criterion, newspaper of the Indianapolis Archdiocese, Anderson said she started to feel uneasy about her job when women from the Planned Parenthood headquarters came to teach the “conscious sedation” process.

“They had this chant they would do: ‘Abortion all the time!’ They acted like an abortion was a rite of passage,” said Anderson.

And the “safe place” she envisioned for women to have abortions turned out to be not so safe.

“Several times there were difficulties with abortions while I worked there, where they had to call the hospital to come pick the woman up. One girl almost bled out. She was passing clots, her blood pressure was dropping,” Anderson recalled.

She told of another incident when a man brought in a Korean girl.

“I had no doubt in my mind this girl was a sex slave,” said Anderson. “This guy would not leave her side. They could barely communicate.”

“Girls would start crying on the table, and Dr. (Michael) King would say, ‘Now you chose to be here. Sit still. I don’t have time for this,'” said Anderson, referring to the abortion doctor.

She ultimately found Planned Parenthood to be “a money-grubbing, evil, sad, sad place to work.”

“We would get yelled at if we didn’t answer the phone by the third ring. They would tell us we’d be fired (if we didn’t), because they needed the money,” Anderson recalled.

“They would remind us in our weekly staff meeting that we need to tell (the clients) to avoid (the sidewalk counselors) because we need the money.”

Anderson was sickened by what she saw in the center’s “POC” room — which stands for “products of conception.”

“He would pour the (products of conception) through a strainer, then flush the remains down the toilet.

“One doctor would talk to the aborted baby while looking for all the parts. ‘Come on, little arm, I know you’re here! Now you stop hiding from me!’ It just made me sick to my stomach.

“The sound the suction machine made when it turned on still haunts me,” Anderson said.

She saw an ad for the book “Unplanned” by Abby Johnson, a former director for Planned Parenthood in Texas who quit her job in 2009 and became pro-life.

Anderson read the book and contacted Johnson, who eventually put her in touch with Eileen Hartman, a local pro-life advocate who runs the Great Lakes Gabriel Project, a Christian-based network of church volunteers who help women facing difficult or unplanned pregnancies.

“Eileen was the biggest help,” said Anderson. “She was there for me to talk any time I wanted. I got emails constantly that (the sidewalk counselors) were praying for me every day.

“I never for one second felt judged or put down by anybody. I felt so much criticism from inside that building versus the love I felt (from those) on the outside.”

Anderson was fired from Planned Parenthood in July 2012.

“I was always getting in trouble for talking too long to the girls, asking if they were sure they wanted to do this,” she said, and admitted to having a “pretty bad attitude” from being miserable in her job.

But Anderson had been looking for a new employer.

“As I was being fired, my phone was vibrating in my pocket,” she said. It was Community North Hospital in Indianapolis calling about hiring her for the job she currently has.

“I love my job now,” she said. “I work with wonderful, Christian people.”

Recently, Anderson attended a retreat put on by And Then There Were None, an organization Johnson created to help former Planned Parenthood employees heal.

“They wanted us to pick out a name every day for one of the babies whose abortions we were a part of, and pray for that child,” said Anderson. “I still do that. I can’t remember the number (of abortions) I came up with, but I figure it will take me several years before I get through the list.”

Anderson spoke publicly for the first time about her Planned Parenthood experiences at a dinner for Great Lakes Gabriel Project on Feb. 6.

“The worst thing I ever did in my life was work at that Planned Parenthood (facility),” she told the crowd.

“It’s been an ongoing journey for me. Talking about it is painful, but talking about it is healing at the same time.”

Face To Face With One I Saved From Abortion by Adam Cassandra

Face To Face With One I Saved From Abortion by Adam Cassandra

Standing outside of an abortion clinic is not a pleasant experience. No matter how many friends or family members are there praying and helping to counsel women close by, the thought of innocent lives being ended in the building right behind you is inescapable. Sometimes it can seem like no one is even listening, and the people going into the clinic pass by pretending they don’t notice you. But God is there reaching out to those women who will open their hearts to Him. That’s when a miracle can happen, and a life can be saved.
Such is the experience of Joannes Bucher who came face-to-face with a child saved thanks to his pro-life activism.
While praying and passing out literature in front of an abortion clinic in Vienna, Austria one day, Joannes became distraught when it appeared none of the women he tried to talk to were going to choose life for their babies.
“Their hearts were really frozen, and they didn’t take any information. And I thought, ‘Wow, what’s going on? It’s really a sad world,’” said Joannes, who is Human Life International’s (HLI) regional director of Europe, in a video interview released last week.
The video is a bonus clip from HLI’s new documentary “Central and Eastern Europe: A Return to Life” which airs on EWTN at 10:00pm EST on January 25, the evening of the 40th March for Life in Washington, D.C.
After a somber day of standing in front of Vienna’s abortion mill, Joannes and his team of pro-life counselors decided to go relax at a park that was close by. There he would meet someone who would change his life.
“As we were in the park, this beautiful area behind the Schloss Schönbrunn, we played frisbee,” Joannes said. “It was a beautiful day … we made a circle and shot the frisbee to each other. And suddenly a woman with a stroller came around and passed us … And I said, ‘Hey do you want to play with us?’ And she said yes.”
“And as I walked to her, of course I just mentioned that she had a beautiful baby. And she said, ‘Yes of course. This is all that I have. It’s a miracle. … But don’t we know each other? Aren’t you the guy who gave me the booklet and motivated me not to have the abortion?’ And I was just shocked,” he said.
As the others gathered around to hear the conversation, the woman with her child said to Joannes, “This is Oliver, and he is living because of you.”
“That was really emotional,” Joannes recalled.
Not only did Joannes have an impact on this woman to save little Oliver’s physical life, but she asked that he continue to be involved in his spiritual life as well.
“She said immediately, ‘A lot of people in my family were against me [having this baby]. Are you ready to be the godfather?’ She wanted to baptize him. … And now I’m the godfather,” said Joannes.
With the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade next week, Joannes’ story is an inspirational reminder of the real impact pro-life advocates can have in the fight to protect and defend unborn life. While the media will be working to ignore the hundreds of thousands of people marching through Washington, D.C., it’s clear that public prayer and support for the pro-life cause can help women open their hearts to God and choose life for their babies.
