Talking About Abortion May Be Offensive, But Our Silence and Apathy Is Deadly; Addressing the Lie That Christians Should Not Offend People.
When my son died five years ago today, I was told “It was just a miscarriage.” No! Benjamin is my son.
Langston Hughes wrote a poem entitled, “I, Too” in which he dreamed of a day when African Americans would not be shunned. This simple poem speaks volumes about the human person and the struggle to attain equality. Corrie Ten Boom wrote a book entitled, “The Hiding Place” in which she talked about her days in a concentration camp. She was not Jewish; she was imprisoned and tortured for hiding Jews in her home because she believed they were equal human persons. Rosa Parks sat down and refused to get up a seat she was told she had no right to sit in. She decided that she was no longer going to be told that she was less human than anyone else on that bus. Anne Frank wrote in her diary, “I don’t think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains” – this coming from a young woman having to live in a hidden apartment for two years because she was declared a non – human person. Martin Luther King, Jr. cried out, “I have a dream.” He believed in a world where men were not looked at as black or white, but as men. He believed we could live as equal human persons and destroy the prejudices that plagued mankind. What do all these people have in common? Some may say oppression. Oppression is certainly a word that can be used to describe all of their lives. Can you imagine yourself as a young girl like Anne Frank living in a small hidden apartment for two years, never allowed to leave for fear of certain death? Some may say determination. Langston Hughes was determined to see a day when our African American brothers would not be seen as less than any other American. Some may say courage. I can’t imagine the courage it took for Corrie Ten Boom to risk her own life and freedom for total strangers. She endured years of torture and even found a way to thank God for her bunk being infested with fleas, knowing it saved her from abuse. Some may say resolve. Oh, to see the resolve in the face of Rosa Parks on the bus that day! It would be amazing to see her claim her spot as an equal human person and refuse to be dehumanized. Some may say passion. Passion is one of the best words you can use to describe Dr Martin Luther King, Jr. When you hear his speech you can’t help but be moved. While all of these words are truly things these great humans had in common, there is one other thing that makes them stand out from others who have been dehumanized: their voice. They all had a voice and were able to use that voice to cry out for their lives, their freedom and their humanity. A voice is something that thousands of innocent people every day in America will never have. Can you imagine if a child in the womb Read More »

But once again a generous donor is giving Stand True Pro-life Outreach a $4,000 matching donation and will double every donation we receive through November up to $4,000.

Stand True’s summer mission team traveled thousands of miles and reached hundreds of thousands of people with the pro-life message this summer through our outreaches, generating a massive pro-life buzz on the streets and online. We just finished our 11th Annual Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity which was a huge success. Stand True and our missionaries played a crucial role in exposing Planned Parenthood this summer by helping to generate social media for the release of the videos showing Planned Parenthood selling baby parts. We also hosted one of the huge #ProtestPP rallies as well as designed the “Defund, Shutdown and Prosecute Planned Parenthood” t-shirt. 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. We will also be helping with a giant prayer rally and activism at the construction site of the Planned Parenthood Mega Center in Washington, DC the day before the March for Life.
