This is the generation that will abolish abortion

68 Year Old Man Kicked Out Of Planet Fitness For Wearing Pro-life T-shirt Despite Their Claim Of Being 100% Judgement Free

UPDATE: Planet Fitness released this statement to me a few minutes ago – “At Planet Fitness, we are committed to providing a comfortable and welcoming environment for everyone. The majority of Planet Fitness clubs, including this location in Orange City, FL, are owned and operated by individual franchisees. The dress code policy is enforced at the discretion of club staff and the local franchisee.”  McCall Gosselin, Director of Public Relations

 

I just got off the phone with Michael Amarosa, a 68 year-old man from Deltona, Florida who was recently kicked out of the local Planet Fitness for wearing a pro-life t-shirt to work out in.

Michael has been going to Planet Fitness for three years and about two weeks ago was approached by one of the staff as he was working out. The staff member informed him that his shirt was offensive to someone and asked if he would be willing to change into a shirt she had in her hand. Michael said no and asked what would happen if he did not change his shirt. He was asked to leave.

Now before I go on, lets look at the slogan for Planet Fitness: “Welcome to Planet Fitness. Home of the Judgement Free Zone®”. That’s right, Planet Fitness wants people to think they are a “judgement free zone” while casting judgement on Michael for a pro-life t-shirt.

Michael’s shirt read, “abortion kills a person” and he thought that if he wore a less abrasive shirt that maybe they would not cast judgement on him. He was wrong. Michael came back the next day wearing a shirt that read, “pray to end abortion” and he was approached again and asked to leave.

Michael told me how he was inspired by Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life who encourages people to be open with their pro-life beliefs. He wants to educate the public about abortion and thats why he wears his pro-life t-shirts. Michael is not yelling at people or trying to start debates in the gym, he simply works out and practices free speech with a t-shirt.

I encouraged Michael and thanked him for his courage and told him that Stand True will be sending him a bunch of free pro-life t-shirts from our store at prolifeworld.com and told him about what happened recently when TLC censored the Duggar’s pro-life t-shirt on the show, 19 Kids and Counting.

Anyone who knows me, knows I am just like Michael as I love to wear pro-life t-shirts everywhere I go. I have had the opportunity to witness to countless people because of them and I also wear them to the gym almost every day. We must be bold in our opposition to abortion and Michael has shown us courage with his stand. He is an inspiration to me and so many for his willingness to be a constant public witness for life and for the babies.

I am in the process of contacting pro-life lawyers for Michael to help him fight Planet Fitness and get his rights back. In the mean time I need you to help us fight for Michael.

Bryan Kemper

Especially in light of their statement we should all contact the local Planet Fitness.

Please contact Planet Fitness in Orange City Florida and express your disgust with how they treated Michael:

Ruling on HHS mandate: “As contrary to religious freedom as you can get”

Today the U.S Circuit Court of appeals ruled against religious freedom and we at Stand True would rather risk arrested and imprisoned before we comply with their evil mandate. – Bryan Kemper

Here is the press release from Priests for Life  11/14/2014

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today to the decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, which ruled against Priests for Life’s challenge to the HHS mandate in the case Priests for Life et al. vs. US Dept. of HHS et al.

“As we have said from the beginning, Priests for Life will not obey the HHS mandate. To ask a group of priests to cooperate in the government’s plan to expand access to birth control and abortion-inducing drugs is about as contrary to religious freedom as you can get.

In the interim, the government has provided what it calls an ‘accommodation’ by which we opt-out of the obligation to provide such coverage. In principle, of course, this moves in the right direction. The conscience of every American should be accommodated by law, so that government never forces anyone to violate his or her conscience.

But the problem at issue in our case — in which the Archdiocese of Washington, Catholic University of America, Thomas Aquinas College, and other plaintiffs are also joined — is that the mechanism the government has provided for us to opt out is, in itself, objectionable to our religious and moral convictions. We have been pointing this out from the outset of this case.

If the government is sincere in wanting to enable us to opt out of something because it violates our moral conscience, it is reasonable for us to insist that we be given a way to opt out that does not itself violate our moral conscience. And whether it violates our conscience is for us to say, not the government.

Today’s decision states that our moral objection to the government’s current ‘opt-out’ mechanism is not their problem.

The decision mischaracterizes our objections. It says, “What Plaintiffs object to here are “the government’s independent actions in mandating contraceptive coverage, not to any action that the government has required [Plaintiffs] themselves to take.”’ That is not correct. What we object to are the actions the government is asking us to take. The decision later acknowledges that, but dismisses our objection as not being weighty enough.

What it boils down to is this: the government finds it hard to believe that we are objecting precisely to an action that lets us opt out of its plan to make it easier for our employees to get contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs.

But the court’s own words today show why we object. The following two paragraphs from the decision capture why we continue to object and why we will not obey the regulations:

“Once the eligible organization expresses its desire to have no involvement in the practice to which it objects, the government ensures that a separation is effectuated and arranges for other entities to step in and fill the gap as required to serve the legislatively mandated regime.”

“Only if the eligible organizations communicate that they are dropping contraceptive coverage from the health insurance they have arranged for their employees will the government be able to ensure that the resultant gaps in employees’ coverage are otherwise filled. The government contends that its interests would be impaired if eligible organizations were entitled to exempt themselves from the contraceptive coverage requirement without notifying either HHS, or their insurers or TPAs.”

That’s the point. We refuse to take actions that are necessary to help the government “fill the gap” to provide drugs that kill babies and harm women. This decision admits that the action they are asking us to take does precisely that and is in fact necessary for that to happen. Therefore we will continue to refuse to obey the regulations, and we will appeal this decision to the Supreme Court.”

Janet Morana, Executive Director of Priests for Life and a personal plaintiff in the case added, “This decision praises the so-called benefits of contraception as if its well-documented negative health risks did not exist. Our objection to be any part of the government’s plan to make contraception more easily accessible is grounded not only in our respect for conscience and religion, but precisely in our regard for women and their health. The Pill, IUDs and sterilization devices like Essure are harming women every day.”

Alveda King, daughter of Rev. A.D. King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., full-time director of African-American Outreach for Priests for Life, and also a personal plaintiff in the case, added, “In the interests of civil rights, which include the right of conscience to practice one’s faith regardless of how the government wants to define it, we will continue to pursue this case at the level of the Supreme Court. If my Uncle ML were still around, I have no doubt that he would be fully supportive of our efforts to secure freedom for every American to have his or her conscience free from government intrusion or reinterpretation.”

>Robert Muise of the American Freedom Law Center, which represents Priests for Life in this case, stated, “This decision by the D.C. Circuit, a court that was recently packed by Obama through Harry Reid’s nuclear option, totally disregards the meaning of material cooperation as our Church teaches it.  No doubt, contraception is a sacrament of the secular left, and this decision, which was authored by one of the recent Obama-appointed judges, is a tribute to it.  Make no mistake, this battle is not over.  We will continue our fight for religious freedom by challenging this decision in the U.S. Supreme Court.”

The courage of the few can shatter the silence of cowardice in the face of evil.

Andy Moore – Photo by Brice Griffin

The silence of those who know the truth is deafening. The apathy towards abortion—from a generation that prides itself in its enlightenment towards other social justice issues—is a badge of dishonor. The simple fact that we allow the chambers of death to exist is evidence that we are cowards in an hour that begs for courage.

Sometimes silence can actually sound louder than words; it can speak volumes about the state of a culture. We have seen this all too many times in the past when cultures and societies have allowed a lie to redefine the value and worth of a human person. We have seen the very image of God, his heritage re-categorized as a sub human. We have also seen the devastating effect of silence in the face of these evils.

The excuses that spew out of the mouths of God’s people are deplorable. To think that a people who have heard the Gospel of Christ and been set free by the sacrifice of his death and resurrection, could ignore the cries of the most vulnerable, is simply mind-boggling.

Comfort seems to be a drug: an addiction that is so powerful it can silence and blind a generation who otherwise seems to care about injustice. It is easy to feed the hungry, get water for the thirsty or clothe the naked. There is no resistance to these acts of justice. The enemy is not fighting tooth and nail to oppose and destroy this work as he is with the abolition of abortion. When we realize what abortion actually is, we must choose to be silent and comfortable, or step out of that comfort into a battle that will stretch and test us.

Many will ask if they are called to step into this battle, and most will say no. The only question you have to ask yourself to figure out if you are called to be a voice and take a stand against abortion is, “Am I alive?” The fact that you are living in a nation that systematically slaughters thousands of her citizens a day is compulsion enough to rise up against this evil. The fact that you are alive means that you are called to love your neighbor as yourself, as God commands us to do.

What are we really afraid of? What can happen to us if we decide to heed the call to love our neighbor as ourselves?

While our culture is shifting towards a realization that abortion is truly a holocaust the likes of which we have never seen before, standing against this evil brings much opposition.  I have seen this first hand as I have been attacked mentally, spiritually and physically. I have even faced death threats for the work I have done and been thrown in jail for peacefully praying in front of the doors to the abortion mills.

But what have I lost? Nothing of any real importance in light of what these children are losing by the thousands every day. In all reality I have nothing to lose that will mean anything in the end but I have everything to gain.

Replace the word “abortion” with any other vile act and there would be no argument. Slavery, child molestation, rape… If our government paid for, protected and called any of these “a right,” there would be rioting in the streets and an uprising for justice that could not be ignored.

Kate Prain – Photo by Mary Kimball

We would not consider the cost or what people thought about us if someone opened a business that molested children and we spoke out against it. Think about this: there was a time in our own nation when our black brothers and sisters were treated as property and it was unpopular to speak out against this evil. However because of the courage of the few in that hour, we now live in a nation which abhors slavery and would never allow it to take root again.

We are in that hour my friends, the crucial moment when you must ask yourself what you are made of. What does the sacrifice of Christ actually mean to you? Think about this vital truth from the Word of God. “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me: and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.” – Galatians 2:20

God gave His Son for us, for our salvation. He gives us the very breath we breathe and we have nothing to fear if we are in Him. Our lives are not our own, but His and it is time that we lived them for Him and all of His heritage. The time is now to raise your voice and Stand True. The time is now. This is the hour to abandon a worldly cowardice and stand with Godly courage to end the abortion holocaust.

For the fall we have two full time missionaries and a third who will be arriving in December. These amazing young people have given up so much to do full time pro-life work and this matching grant will help house, feed and equip them for this battle against the culture of death.  

Stand True’s popular pro-life t-shirts were worn by the Duggar family on their reality show, 19 Kids and Counting. On one episode our shirt was blurred out which created so much buzz that almost every major media outlet was talking about the shirt and the story went viral.

Stand True will be once again organizing the official March for Life Youth Rally in Washington D.C. as well as traveling to the West Coast to host a booth at the West Coast Walk for Life.

I talked to Josh Duggar about TLC blurring out our pro-life shirts and the Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity…

On Tuesday I joined Josh Duggar and Lila Rose in front of Washington D.C.’s Planned Parenthood to speak out against government funding of abortion.

Josh was excited to see so many people react and contact TLC with their concerns, and he encouraged us to continue our efforts to spread the Life message and supply the Duggar family with their pro-life wardrobe.

I also got an e-mail from Josh this morning telling he that he will be promoting Stand True’s “Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity” trough his social media networks. What an honor for all of us her at Stand True to be fighting this battle along side such amazing pro-life warriors like the Duggars.

Our Stand True missionaries have been working hard all week getting ready for the Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity and answering questions and comments coming in from all over the world about TLC censoring the t-shirtIn all reality what TLC did was help to make sure the pro-life message was heard far and wide.

We asked all of you — the Stand True family — to help us send a message to TLC and you overwhelmed us with your response. We saw thousands of tweets and e-mails going out to TLC along with tens of thousands of signatures on petitions. We know that TLC heard our message loud and clear but we need to keep the pressure on as Joshed asked us to do.

Please continue to reach out to TLC through twitter using @TLC or you can use the automatic form to send an – e-mail message to TLC - http://www.priestsforlife.org/alert/alert.aspx?id=52

Our Stand True missionaries operate on a shoestring budget, and we need a significant influx of funds soon in order to meet these opportunities.  Can you donate $25, $50, $100, $500 so we can meet these opportunities?  -  Please click here – https://give.cornerstone.cc/Stand+True.  And make the most generous donation you can at this time.

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

You can also join the Duggars in being a walking pro-life message by getting one of the “I Survived Roe” t-shirts at prolifeworld.com.

Raise your voice with Stand True and the Duggars’ today!

Don’t forget that the best way to raise your voice next week is to lose for those who will never have one. Tuesday, October 21st is the 10th annual Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity and it not to late to register at silentday.org.

A young woman writes an open letter to the child she is about to abort and posts it online. – My open letter to her.

Photo from webmd.com

A young woman writes an open letter to the child she is about to abort and posts it online.

I want to start by saying that I am skeptical of this being a sincere post. I am actually praying that it is not. It seems to me that one of the biggest strategies of the pro-abortion movement is to de-stigmatize abortion: to make it a simple, no-big-deal action like clipping your nails.

All of the comments seem to be from people thanking her for her courage and showing their support, which gives me pause. It also seems that any opposing thoughts are being deleted.

With that being said, if this is real, it is heartbreaking at the least. This young woman is literally writing a letter to her child to explain to her child why she is paying someone to end her child’s life. She does not try to pretend that this child is not alive, for she clearly recognized the humanity and soul of her child.

Before I go any further I will share her post with you.

I am getting an abortion next Friday. An open letter to the little life I won’t get to meet.

Little Thing:

I can feel you in there. I’ve got twice the appetite and half the energy. It breaks my heart that I don’t feel the enchantment that I’m supposed to feel. I am both sorry and not sorry.

I am sorry that this is goodbye. I’m sad that I’ll never get to meet you. You could have your father’s eyes and my nose and we could make our own traditions, be a family. But, Little Thing, we will meet again. I promise that the next time I see that little blue plus, the next time you are in the same reality as me, I will be ready for you.

Little Thing, I want you to be happy. More than I want good things for myself, I want the best things for the future. That’s why I can’t be your mother right now. I am still growing myself. It wouldn’t be fair to bring a new life into a world where I am still haunted by ghosts of the life I’ve lived. I want you to have all the things I didn’t have when I was a child. I want you to be better than I ever was and more magnificent than I ever could be. I can’t do to you what was done to me: Plant a seed made of love and spontaneity into a garden, and hope that it will grow on only dreams. Love and spontaneity are beautiful, but they have little merit. And while I have plenty of dreams to go around, dreams are not an effective enough tool for you to build a better tomorrow. I can’t bring you here. Not like this.

I love you, Little Thing, and I wish the circumstances were different. I promise I will see you again, and next time, you can call me Mom.

-h

Here is my open letter to her.

Dear H

“Little Thing.” This is the name she chooses to call her pre-born child. This “Little Thing” is not a thing; he or she is a human person. She talks about not bringing her child here, but she needs to understand that she has already done that. Her child is already here.

She talks about how her child might have her father’s eyes or her nose; this has already been determined. If she would not kill this child she would find out whose eyes her child already has.

When she talks about not feeling the enchantment that she is supposed to feel, she needs to understand that this is something that will happen throughout the whole life of her child. I have seven children and in no way do I always feel that enchantment.

What I do feel is love, a love that drives me to protect my children at all costs. No matter what our living situation may be, no matter how much we may not have, no matter how tough times get, I will love them. I am their father and I know that to say I Iove my child means that I would do anything including sacrificing all of my desires and wants to make sure my child is taken care of.

For her to say that she loves this child in the same breath as saying that she is going to abort her child is just not reality. This is a lie and deception that the real war on women has unleashed on this world. The lie that sacrificing the life of a child is an act of love that empowers women is the war on women.

H, if you can read this, I beg you to take a pause for a moment. You said that you feel your child inside of you. I want you to think about that statement. Your child is already here, and you are already this child’s mother. You can give this child the most precious gift in the world: the gift of life.

No matter what circumstances you are in right now, nothing warrants the death of your precious child. You, as this child’s mother, and your love can overcome all the adversity you may face as you raise this precious child.

I have no idea what you believe about God, but I must share with you that you are a child of God, loved by Him and created in His image. Your child is also created in God’s image and is infinitely loved by God. Please understand that God actually gave his own Son, Jesus Christ for you and your child. Through Him you can find the strength to love your child and give your child the gift of life.

Please also understand that I have heard this line of thought from countless women who have gone through with abortion only to find themselves in deep pain down the road. The regret and hurt that often follows abortion is monumental and devastating for mothers and fathers. Please take a moment to read some of the testimonies from women who have been down this road and are speaking out about their experience. - http://www.silentnomoreawareness.org

Please also know that there are so many of us that would help you with anything you need to make sure your child has a wonderful life. We can also help you find an amazing family to adopt your child if that would be an option for you.

H, I am not just pleading for the life of your child, I am pleading for you. I know you are in a situation right now that seems overwhelming, and the world has told young women that the best solution for these situations is abortion. I know that you think this will be the best choice for you, that this will free you to live your life the way you want to.

Please understand that abortion is a lie. It is an attack not only on your child but also on you. It is an act of violence against women, a destroyer that takes what is beautiful and natural and turns it into death.

H, I love you enough to tell you the truth; that abortion will not only kill your child, it will rob you of motherhood. It will not make you cease to be a mom. That is something you are now and will be forever. Your motherhood, however, will be taken from you and thrown into the trash.

Please, H, love yourself enough to embrace the gift God has given you. You are loved and we can help you.

Pro-life Unity In Action: Putting the babies and the cause ahead of ourselves.

Kate Prain – Stand True Pro-life Missionary

Here in the Dayton, Ohio area, Wright State University is collaborating with notorious late-term abortionist, Martin Haskell, who works at the area’s only remaining surgical abortion clinic. If it were not for Wright State’s hospital transfer agreement, the abortion center would be shut down by the Ohio Department of Health.

Last week our friends at Created Equal let us know that they would be conducting a pro-life outreach on the campus of Wright State. They were also being joined by many local pro-lifers, some of whom had informed us of what was going on at Wright State, and we decided to join this collaborative outreach.

The day was a huge success as we were able to engage hundreds of students in conversations about abortion and inform them of Haskell’s agreement with the Wright State Physicians group. Many students were unaware of how the Wright State Physicians group was involved and we even saw a few hearts change about abortion.

For me there was something even more exciting that happened yesterday: the collaboration of all pro-life groups present. I watched the heads of at least five pro-life organizations doing outreach together, strategizing together, making plans for future collaboration and then praying together.

I think collaboration is a characteristic that people in the pro-life movement must acknowledge and strive for. It was beautiful to see Stand True working with Created Equal, Dayton Right to Life, Heart for the Next Generation, and other pro-life brethren today at Wright   State.

Not only did the leaders work together, all of the amazing people working with these organizations were witnessing together. We also spent time getting to know each other, developing friendships, and praying together.

While all of the different pro-life groups across the world may hold different tactics and methods for ending abortion, we must remember first and foremost that we are all serving the same God in our work to end abortion! It is all the same end goal. Simply being a pro-life activist requires us to put our pride aside in order to save babies and save mothers from the hurt of abortion.

So was this outreach successful? Yes! We planted seeds, allowed God to work through us, stood up against this holocaust, encouraged young people to be vocal about abortion, informed students about Haskell’s correlation with the Wright State Physicians group, and witnessed with some great people who consist of one big, unitive, loving pro-life family. What a hidden blessing.

TLC Censors Pro-life T-shirt on 19 Kids and Counting – Let’s let them know how we feel about this.

Last week I was excited to see our Stand True T-shirt “I Survived Roe vs Wade, Roe vs Wade Will Not Survive Me” on an episode of 19 Kids and Counting. I got tweets from friends and my wife called to tell me that my daughter was freaking out when she saw the shirt.

Tonight I was excited to watch a new episode and see if any of the family was wearing one of our shirts again. I was shocked when I saw the shirt again but this time I was shocked because they had actually blurred out the message.

I met several of the Duggars last January at the Students for Life of America Conference and gave Jessa one of the “I Survived Roe” shirts and offered them for the whole family. Jessa e-mailed me and asked if I could send a box of shirts for everyone. They actually took some family photos wearing the shirts and have tweeted out the photos and promoted our pro-life store.

Knowing how dedicated to the pro-life cause the Duggars are, I expected to see the shirts many times on their show. It really amazes me that TLC would censor this; it’s not like people don’t know the Duggar’s beliefs.

 

Knowing that the shirt appeared in the previous episode without being blurred, I am wondering if they received complaints or negative feedback after it aired. I say we show TLC that there is so much more support for the Duggars wearing these shirts than there are complaints.

I hope everyone reading this will tweet and e-mail TLC and let them know how disappointed you are that they would blur out this pro-life message.

Here is an example of a meme I created with Rhonna Designs on my iPhone:

Isabella was conceived 6 years ago this week and she is a gift from God, NOT a product of rape. A story of courage in a tragic situation.

Once in a while we get random people contacting us because they live locally and want to come by the office to get a t-shirt. When Lauran came in with Isabella I could not help but smile. Isabella is such a beautiful young lady who lights up any room. You would never know that such a little princess is a rare survivor of a culture who would actually tell her mom that she would be better off having her “terminated.”

The world would call Isabella a product of rape. President Obama would refer to her as a “punishment.” Planned Parenthood would say she was nothing more then a blob of tissues and happily dispose of her for several hundred dollars.

I call Isabella a child of God, His heritage. I want to share with you Isabella and Lauran’s story of courage and healing. The next time you hear someone say they are against abortion except in cases of rape, think about little Isabella and understand that she is a child, not an exception.

Read what Lauran and Isabella both have to say:

Lauran

I was your ordinary girl, ready to start my senior year in high school. And like most high school girls I was thinking about things like Friday night football games, which college I would get into, and finishing off the year walking across the stage getting my hard earned diploma. Making choices that only affected me. Little did I know, there was someone out there thinking only of himself and about to make a selfish choice that was going to affect me for the rest of my life.

One month into my senior year of high school, I found out that through one boy’s selfish desires, and lack of respect for me, I was pregnant, through rape. The next eight months were filled with obstacles to overcome, acceptance of dreams that might not come true, and the reality that I had to complete what I started in order to get my diploma in spite of my situation.

Twelve weeks into my pregnancy, I came face to face with my little girl as I had my first ultrasound. Wow! It was at that very moment that I knew I was destined to be her mommy and she was destined to be my daughter. Abortion was never an option for me, but it was at this moment that I truly realized why. Life is a precious, sacred gift and it is not ours to choose whether life should end because of inconvenience or because of the circumstance of conception. I learned something so valuable in those eight months. I was not the person outsiders assumed I was. I was stronger than I ever knew possible. I had developed the heart of a mommy.

In spite of the circumstances of her conception, I began to realize that my daughter was not a creation of violence, she was a gift from God, the creator of life. It was that realization that changed my perspective completely. One week after graduation Isabella Grace came into the world. I thought I had been strong for the past 9 months but I had no idea how much stronger I would become because of this beautiful little girl. I have taken on obstacles that girls my age couldn’t imagine having to face and I have come out on top. It’s not because of my strength alone, but it is God who gives me strength, every minute of everyday. Alone, I could not do this.

Isabella

I love my mom. I love my whole family. I think its cool that I have just my mom. I’m God’s princess and I love him so much. He’s my heavenly father. He’s the King of the whole world.

Abortion is never a necessary evil.
