This is the generation that will abolish abortion

“Moral Movement” prayer vigil embraces Planned Parenthood, leaves out Jesus. Pics and Video

When I arrived at the Ohio State House yesterday afternoon I was already skeptical about a prayer vigil that was being advertised by Planned Parenthood. I did not really expect to hear anything remotely biblical.

I walked up to the steps of the State House with my pro-life signs and noticed the sign on the podium immediately. It read, “Moral Movement”.  Are you kidding me? How can any movement that includes the nation’s largest child-killer call itself moral?

Mark Harrington, of Created Equal, and I began to set up the signs we brought to show Planned Parenthood and their supporters what they are actually supporting.  Joined by several local pro-lifers from Dayton and Columbus, we got our display set up but were told to move back several feet because of the permit.

I was pulled aside by the permit-holder who was wearing an “I heart Jesus” sticker on her shirt; I was for a brief moment thinking she was going to tell us that she did not want Planned Parenthood there and that we were welcome. I was wrong.

She explained to me that they were welcoming all people to this prayer vigil and that she did not want our “dead baby” signs there because they were divisive. I tried to explain to her that Planned Parenthood was killing innocent human beings and that was more divisive than anything. I tried to explain to the minister standing next to her, wearing a collar, that abortion kills innocent children. He just smiled and said, “That’s your opinion.”

I asked her about the other signs they were allowing in the permitted area and she told me as long as there were not aborted baby pictures on the signs, it was fine. I quickly got signs with just words and stood there at the rally. Seth Drayer from Created Equal brought over a sign with a beautiful life development picture on it, but she quickly came over to tell me that sign was not welcome either.

I asked her what were the qualifications for leading prayer and she said you have to be a minister. I explained to her that we had a minister with us who would love to lead some prayer. She of course rejected this idea and just walked away.

I was getting frustrated as I listened over and over to these “ministers” leading prayer and not once did a single one of them mention the name of Jesus. I am not exaggerating. There was not one single mention of Jesus during an hour of prayer. I watched as Planned Parenthood workers held hands and bowed their heads in prayer for “equality for the most vulnerable.” I listened to them quote Martin Luther King, Jr. and I was outraged. I just could not stand silent anymore, so I began to preach.

One of the ministers again mentioned “the most vulnerable” and I shouted out, “what about the babies, what about the innocent human babies that Planned Parenthood butchers every day?” I held the photo of an aborted baby high over my head and asked over and over “what about this human being?”

They paused for a moment but then tried to talk through me. My friends Mark Harrington and Mark Wolf then began to join me as we took turns asking them if they were going to stand up for the babies who are being slaughtered. I held up a picture of Tonya Reeves and asked where her justice was.

They were using a sound system but we were loud and determined for them to hear the truth. I pleaded with them to repent and turn to Christ and warned them that their prayers were an abomination to God.

They proclaimed that this prayer vigil was inclusive for all Christians, Muslims, gays and lesbians… But of course there was not one mention of the innocent human beings being slaughtered in the abortion mills across America. One person even told Mark Wolf “killing pre-born humans is a narrow focus, not worthy of their prayer.”

One minister talked about the violence in Ferguson, MO, claiming he was standing there in the streets just days ago in fear. He incited the crowd by claiming that “the militarized police were hunting them down,” referring to black people. I yelled out, “What about the violence against babies at Planned Parenthood?” I held up a photo of Tonya Reeves again and begged him to stand up for this black person who was killed by Planned Parenthood.

The truth may have not been preached or prayed at the podium yesterday, but all in attendance heard it. The “ministers” never mentioned the name of Jesus but it was heard by all of them. God was weeping as they made a mockery of Him, but I am confident that He rejoiced when we shared the truth and boldly proclaimed Christ to the crowd.

As we packed up the signs at the end of the rally we found out that our preaching did not fall on deaf ears. A couple of people approached us asking for information about abortion and about the racial targeting of the abortion industry.

I began to drive away to go celebrate with everyone at an abortion mill in Columbus that announced that day that they were quitting abortions, when I noticed Stephanie F. Kight, the CEO of Planned Parenthood Ohio walking down the street.  I asked her to turn to Christ and find hope in Him; she just chuckled and continued walking.

We will be praying for all of those in attendance to truly find Christ and know what true justice and love in Him means. We must continue to show them the truth, proclaim the Hope that we have in Christ and pray for them. Through Christ we can build a culture of life and defeat the gates of Hell.

Stand True Pro-life Outreach Emergency Appeal

Dear Friends,

We are still paying the last of the bills from our Summer Mission work and we have our fall Stand True Missionaries arriving in just a couple of weeks. Our bank account is dangerously low. Once I fill the van with gas for our outreach alongside the Planned Parenthood “prayer vigil” in Columbus tomorrow, we will be below $100 in the bank.

You read that correctly: Planned Parenthood is holding a “prayer vigil” at the State House in downtown Columbus tomorrow aftenoon and we plan on joining them. We will be taking some local pro-life activists from the Dayton area to show them the truth and make sure there is some actual prayer taking place there tomorrow.

The fall missionaries will arrive in two weeks and we have a lot of preparations to make. The van needs some new shocks, the missionary apartment needs repairs and we must restock on food, literature and resources for them to get right to work. The missionaries will be driving to Kettering three times a week to pray at the last remaining abortion mill in the Dayton area. They will also be visiting campuses and events around the mid-west and across the United States.

We need your help!

Please consider making a donation today to make sure we start this fall semester off with a bang and are able to boldly take the pro-life message to the world.

Can you donate $25, $50, $100, $500 to make sure we can keep these missionaries on the road? –Please click on the donate button on this page and make the most generous donation you can at this time.

NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio is using video of Stand True President, Bryan Kemper and his kids to raise money for abortion

NARAL Pro-choice Ohio has just released a fundraising letter with a video of Stand True activists confronting abortion mill owner Val Haskell. They lie about what happened and are trying to raise blood money with their lies, here is the actual account of what happened.

Last week, Martin Haskell, the notorious late term abortionist, had a court hearing for his bid to keep one of his two abortion mills open. He faced closure to failing to comply with Ohio law which requires him to have hospital transfer privileges. I along with several of my children, Stand True Interns and representatives from Created Equal, Ohio Right to Life, Cincinnati Right to Life, Dayton Right to Life and many local pro-life activists were there show the truth about what happens inside these death chambers.

Mark Harrington and I were in the courtroom for the entire hearing and heard Haskell’s lawyers explain that he was too afraid to appear in court, yet he sent his wife instead. COWARD!

Val Haskell, the wife of the abortionist and co-owner of the abortion mill left the court room and was greeted by Mark and me where we gently and graciously pleaded with her to repent and turn to Christ. At one point I asked her how, as a self pro-claimed Christian, she justified killing babies and she told me to “read the bible”. Mark and I walked with her outside the courthouse and continued to plead with her to turn to Christ and to shut down her modern day Auschwitz.

I am posting the video that NARAL is using to raise funds for abortion and then the video that my daughter took of the same incident.

I would hope that people would donate to the work of Stand True who are actually working to save lives, not take lives. Stand True is the organization who actually cares about women while NARAL represents the actual war on women.

Watch both videos and then let NARAL know you will be giving to Stand True to help them defeat the war on women and abolish abortion in America. I am also including the text of their fundraising letter after the videos:

Counter their blood money with a donation to Stand True: Can you donate $25, $50, $100, $500to make sure Stand True can continue to educate, activate and equip this generation to end abortion? – If you can donate please do so at https://give.cornerstone.cc/Stand+True  - Donations can also be mailed to Stand True – PO Box 890 – Troy, OH 45373 or call 937-570-0671 to donate by phone.

NARAL’s Version

Stand True’s Version

 

Last week, I sat in a Hamilton County courtroom as Judge Metz ruled that Dr. Haskell’s clinic in Cincinnati would be forced to close. It was a sad day for people not only in the Cincinnati area, but those in Indiana and Kentucky that rely on this clinic for access to safe, legal abortion care.

Today the clinic announced they will end their legal battle and stop doing surgical abortions in their Cincinnati Clinic. Now that this clinic has been forced to stop providing surgical abortion services Gov. Kasich will certainly start moving to close the last remaining clinic in the area. Donate today to help us fight back and protect abortion access in Cincinnati and across the state.

What happened inside the courtroom on Friday wasn’t the only story. We had more than 50 pro-choice activists outside the courthouse, showing their support for abortion access and speaking out against the Kasich Administration’s attacks on our providers. These activists stood tall even as they were harassed and screamed at by anti-choice protestors.  

But the anti-choice bullies didn’t stop there. Not content with winning their battle in court, they harassed Dr. Haskell’s wife, Val, all the way to the parking lot, telling her she was going to hell, and that she was the same as Hitler. You can see it for yourself here:I was glad I was there to escort Val out of the courtroom, to put myself between her and these bullies. No one should be harassed for providing or accessing medical care. This is why I am asking for your donation today. Your gift of $5, $25, or $50 will help us protect abortion access in our state.

Your support today will make sure we have the resources we need to continue fighting these battles in the statehouse and in courtrooms across Ohio.

Yours in Choice,

Jaime Miracle
Policy Director, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio

BREAKING NEWS From Operation Rescue: Another Abortion Mill Closing in OHIO. Haskell Won’t Appeal Court Ruling!

Our friends at Operation Rescue just posted this:

Also watch Mark Harrington and Bryan Kemper confront the abortion mills owner and wife of the child killer at the courthouse last week.

Cincinnati, OH — Attorneys for Martin Haskell’s Sharonville abortion facility have announced that they will not appeal a ruling issued last week by Judge Jerome Metz upholding the Ohio Department of Health’s closure order. Haskell must cease surgical abortions his Sharonville office by Friday, August 22, 2014.

“This is such a huge victory for all who respect life and the rule of law,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, which worked with Greater Cincinnati Right to Life to expose Haskell’s abortion abuses. “Haskell had the attitude that he was above the law and deserved to operate under a different standard as everyone else. Today, the law has prevailed.”

Haskell operated for years under a variance issued by the ODH that allowed him to continue operating as long as he maintained an approved agreement with two physicians to supply hospital care for women injured during abortions done by Haskell in Sharonville. However, Haskell continually changed the agreement without notifying the ODH. The physicians he had agreements with were a troubled lot that case doubt on whether they could supply adequate hospital care for patients.

The ODH declined to renew Haskell’s variance in January and revoked his facility license. Haskell appealed the decision, but lost every step of the way.

Haskell has operated in the Cincinnati area for 32 years. Over the past 18 months, nearly half of Ohio’s abortion facilities have closed.

“When the authorities enforce the law, abortion clinics close,” said Newman. “This just shows that abortion facilities, including Haskell’s, operate at such a low standard that women are endangered at them every day. The state is fulfilling their duty to protect the public by shutting down abortion businesses that can’t comply with the law.”

PRAISE GOD!!!!!

Pleading With The Abortionist’s Wife

Teen sign language interpreter at Planned Parenthood asked to interpret an abortion – Her heartbreaking testimony

I was eighteen when I took a job as a sign language interpreter at Planned Parenthood. I was raised Roman Catholic, but I was Catholic in the same way that Olive Garden is an authentic Italian restaurant: just because you throw some fancy words on the menu doesn’t make it genuine. For me, abortion was not a choice that I would make personally, but the way I saw it, who was I to judge another woman for having one? I didn’t know her life. I didn’t know her circumstances, and I had prided myself my whole life on not judging people without knowing their full story.

A deaf friend referred me to the job opening at a Boston clinic, and it paid well. I averaged about $100 an hour for my services! That’s all it was to me, a job to make money for my upcoming college tuition. I didn’t work often, maybe one or two days a week, and traveled around to the Boston-area clinics when needed. For the most part, I interpreted for women seeking counseling, getting prescriptions for birth control, or just getting general information about sexual health. It all seemed innocent enough.

Deep down, however, I must have known I was doing something wrong. I told people I worked for a “family services counseling center.” I figured that wasn’t completely a lie. The trouble was, most people took that to mean that I was going into the world and doing good: interpreting for families living in poverty, or families who were trying to keep themselves together. Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood offered all kinds of services, in the back of my mind I knew that at the root of it they really were just an abortion clinic.

The worst day of my life—and an anniversary I never forget when it comes every year—is Thursday, November 1, 2012. I was called in to interpret for a “medical procedure.” I arrived early, and chatted with the receptionist as I did every day. I grabbed a cup of coffee and waited for the client to arrive. While I waited, I went over her file. I’ll call her Kate. She was twenty-three and had been deaf since birth. Kate estimated that she was about eighteen weeks pregnant.

At 10:30 sharp, we entered the operating room. That’s when my stomach started to turn. Previously, when I’d read “medical procedure,” it had been for ultrasounds. But this was different – we were in an OR. The lights were too bright for the size of the room. There were cold-looking metal objects on a table. I was in an abortion.

I tried to remain calm. I interpreted back and forth, but when the murder began, I lost it. As I watched the doctor pull this life out, limb by limb, I couldn’t help but let the tears start to fall. What I had thought would be just lumps of blood clots were body parts. Arms, a torso, legs, and a head. I felt as if I was suffocating. As soon as it was over, I ran from the room. I collapsed in the hallway and sobbed uncontrollably. To this day, I haven’t cried like that since. A security guard rushed me into his office. I realize now that it was probably not to console me, but because I was scaring the patients.

I quit my job that afternoon. I went into the manager’s office and signed my papers. Abortion was not a strong enough word for what I had witnessed. Murder wasn’t even good enough a word. To me, murder implied that the person might have been capable of fighting back. No, this was a slaughter.

I don’t think I will ever fully recover from what I saw that day. A human life, a BABY, had been ripped from its mother’s body, piece by piece. It is the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning, and the last thing I think of before I go to bed. I still have nightmares about it sometimes. Whenever I see a child around two, I imagine that that is how old the aborted baby would be now. I can’t help but wonder who that baby would have become. Maybe she would have been an artist. Maybe he would have dreamed of being a firefighter. Maybe she would have gone on to become a doctor who saved lives; maybe he would have become a teacher.

With counseling, I have come to accept that God forgives me for the act that I was a part of, but I am still working on forgiving myself. The only thing that consoles me on the nights that it keeps me up is knowing that that baby is now in Heaven, enjoying Eternal Life. After what this world put it through, I think that’s a good place to be.

-Hope, 21

Abortion cannot be stopped. Really? How big is your God?

“Abortion cannot be stopped.” That is what a man said to me as I was coming out of Mass with the Stand True Mission Team and the walkers from Crossroads Pro-life Walks Across America.

You may be kind of surprised that I would hear this from someone coming out of church but it is not that uncommon. Pessimism coupled with apathy permeates in our churches and people who claim to follow Christ.

I told him that many people said that slavery would never be made illegal back in the 1800s. He just ignored that and continued to argue that abortion will never be outlawed. I tried to explain to him that this generation is waking up to the truth about the abortion holocaust and that this would be the generation that will abolish abortion.

He almost seemed annoyed with us for having the audacity to believe such a thing. He told us that he follows history and that is why he knows abortion will never be outlawed.  I told him to look at biblical history and see what God can do.

He just kept repeating that abortion will never be outlawed and I finally asked him, “How big is your God?”

I find it amazing that so many people who call themselves Christians cannot believe in God to do mighty things. I am appalled at how much we limit the God of the Universe, the very God who created the universe.

I see this kind of thing in so many aspects of our Christian life; we seem to fail to understand how much we can call on God. I see this in what I call “Jesus junk”; t-shirts, mugs and so many other items with very un-creative artwork. People seem to think if they just slap the name Jesus on something it will honor God. God is the Creator of the Universe and we fail to call on him and be creative.

Christianity is not just some club. God is not just a figurehead. Church is not just a place to meet people and have potlucks. We need to start to understand the power of prayer and what God will do when His people actually believe and act.

I have seen the power of God first-hand. I have seen His miraculous ways even before I was a Christian. During my drug days a friend warned me that someone was going to kill me at a drug deal. That night after avoiding that deal I was lying down in the back of my pick-up truck where I lived. I saw a man approach my truck and lift the door to the camper shell and point a gun at my head. He looked me in the eyes for a moment and then put the gun away and walked off.

A few months later, after everything had blown over with this guy, I saw him at a party. I talked to him and asked him why he did not shoot me that night? He seemed shocked and told me that when he looked into my truck he did not see me; he saw an empty bed. God literally made me invisible to this guy.

I have seen His power and cannot understand how His people can be so pessimistic. God lifted me out of that pit of muck and mire, as it says in Psalms 40, He set my feet upon the solid rock. I know what God can do when we turn to Him and I believe very much that we can and will see abortion abolished.

Abortion remains legal by permission of men like the one we met after church. Abortion remains legal by permission of Christians who seem to forget that our God is the God who created the Universe. When God’s people will wipe the unbelief from their eyes, erase the fear from their hearts and break the chains of apathy, we will see an end to abortion.

So ask yourself this question: How big is your God?

If you really don’t think we can win this battle — if you really think it is ok to just sit on the sidelines while millions of innocent human beings are being slaughtered — I would suggest you might not really understand who God is. God is bigger than Roe vs Wade; He is bigger than the Supreme Court.

Now if His people would only believe this, we could end this holocaust.

We Need Help Right Now – Please help us feed 15 Pro-life Missionaries

Stand True Mission Team meeting up with the Crossroads walkers

Update: In the first few hours we have already raised $1,890 towards our goal of $2,000. However we just got word the van’s shocks need to be replaced and we had to replace a tire which adds almost $500 to the expense for the month.

The Stand True Mission Team is about to hit the road for the last big trip of the summer, driving over 2,000 miles in ten days, and we need food and gas money.

Starting today we are actually hosting 9 pro-life missionaries from Crossroads Pro-life Walk Across America and feeding them for the next couple of days. We will be taking them to our local abortion mill for prayer with the Stand True Mission Team tomorrow morning and then walking several miles with them tomorrow.

We hit the road on Sunday morning with our first event being Monday Morning in New York City, where we will be praying at the main Planned Parenthood with some other pro-life groups. We will also spend a couple days getting training from Dr. Alveda King, Father Frank Pavone, Janet Morana and several other pro-life leaders. We will hit the road on Wednesday night for New Hampshire where we will be setting up our booth for three days of outreach at Soulfest. After Soulfest we will be heading to Buffalo, NY for a Stand True weekend with local pro-lifers with activism and speaking events before driving back to Ohio.

We need your help!

Eating on the road can get expensive as well as gas and an oil change for the van. All of these expenses start just a couple of days after paying all the monthly bills which makes your help even more crucial. We need to raise $2,00o for August, can you help us reach this goal?

Can you donate $25, $50, $100, $500 to help feed these amazing pro-life missionaries and keep them on the road? – If you can donate please do so at https://give.cornerstone.cc/Stand+True -

Donations can also be mailed to Stand True – PO Box 890 – Troy, OH 45373 or call 937-570-0671 to donate by phone.
