Merry Christmas from Stand True. Give the gift of Life for Christmas.

Do you ever feel like Charlie Brown and want to scream, “Doesn’t anyone know what Christmas is all about?”

I have always loved the Charlie Brown Christmas special, even before I came to know the Lord. There has always been something about the purity of the message that resonated with me. To this day, this is my favorite Christmas Special. When Linus gives his speech, I still get chills.

“8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10And the angel said unto them, Fear not; for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
12And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.”

“…That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”[2]

Charles Schultz had the courage to keep Christ in Christmas; we can all learn from him. I know it is a cheesy saying but, Jesus IS the reason for the season!

We at Stand True want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and thank you for your support of the work we do here. We know that the greatest gift we can give you is to keep fighting to end the holocaust that is plauging our world. Please pray for us and all who have taken up this fight, a fight that we need so desperately to come to an end.

Along with your prayers, we ask that you also give the gift of life this Christmas by making an end of year donaton to Stand True. Your end of year donation will help us start the New Year strong in our fight to end abortion. Please give life this Christmas and stand with us.

Please support the work of Stand True and our amazing Pro-life Missionaries. We need your help TODAY! Please donate $25, $50, $100, $500 and help Stand True continue to educate, activate and equip this generation. If you can donate please do so at

Early Christmas Present: An Abortionist In Handcuffs

A millionaire abortionist in Oklahoma was removed from his office in handcuffs today.Dr. Nareshkumar Patel, 62, who kills unborn children at Outpatient Services for Women in Oklahoma City, has been arrested and accused of prescribing abortion-inducing drugs to women who were not pregnant, according to a press release from the office of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt. Authorities began an investigation after Operation Rescue filed a complaint based on documents and medical waste that had been discarded in a trash receptacle near Patel’s office.

Patel is notorious for having burned the bodies of 55 babies in 1992 in an abandoned RV he owned and for allegations that he sexually assaulted three women as they awaited their abortions.  He has faced a long list of malpractice claims but has never had his license permanently revoked.

Commenting on Patel’s arrest, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, noted his organization’s close collaboration with Operation Rescue and said, “Those who kill babies do a lot of other evil as well. Working with Operation Rescue and Life Dynamics, and in our own initiatives at Priests for Life, we have found that the more you dig, the more you find.”

“I have seen hundreds if not thousands of pro-lifer put into handcuffs over the past 20 years for laying their lives down for the sake of innocent babies in the womb. To see an abortionist taken away in handcuffs really makes me smile as I know that precious children will not be killed in abortion mill right now”, said Bryan Kemper, President of Stand True Pro-life Outreach. “This is a great early Christmas present to the pro-life movement and to the babies who will now live”

“Exposing the corruption of the abortion industry can lead to closing abortion mills and putting abortionists out of business, without needing to change a single law,” Father Pavone added.

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said “We are very excited about this morning’s arrest. This is the result of a collaborative effort that involved gritty pro-life work, active enforcement of state laws.”

Is Pro-life Activist Bryan Kemper, Banned from the UK?

Bryan Kemper speaking with students at Oxford and Cardiff Universities on UK Tour.

A columnist for a British newspaper has suggested banning Priests for Life Youth Director Bryan Kemper from the United Kingdom.

In a convoluted piece full of UPPERCASE OUTRAGE, Observer columnist Catherine Bennett talks about the British ban on self-described “seduction expert” Julien Blanc, and suggests some others who might abandon all hope of ever again setting foot on English soil. In assembling this list of “influential foreign women-haters,” Ms. Bennett writes:

“There can be no welcome for visiting anti-abortion campaigners, of both sexes, who are hostile to the good health and independent agency of British women. If Mr. Blanc’s blandishments are officially abhorrent, then it is hard to justify further attempts by, say, the Ohio pro-lifer Bryan Kemper, to, in Blanc lingo HAVE GIRLS FLOCKING to his cause.”

She is apparently referring to Kemper’s popularity among young pro-life Brits of both genders. At the invitation of the Society for the Protection of the Unborn, Kemper has spoken and trained youth at several youth conferences.

Students who heard Kemper speak at a youth conference in Scotland later started the first- ever pro-life society at Cardiff University in Wales and have invited him  to speak to the society three times. He also was part of the inaugural speaking tour for the U.K,’s “Alliance of Pro-life Students” organization started by students from Cardiff University.

For Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, Ms. Bennett’s “Ban Bryan” campaign is proof that Kemper is changing hearts and minds in Britain.

“If he weren’t so effective in his defense of the unborn, Ms. Bennett would never have heard of Bryan Kemper,” Father Pavone said. “English women are heeding his message, and the message of our wonderful pro-life colleagues and friends throughout Britain, and that scares pro-abortion ideologues there.  Because of that, and because of the urgency of protecting the unborn, we will continue sending Bryan to Britain and to many other nations as well.”

Kemper, meanwhile, is thrilled.

“What an honor,” he said. “To think that a newspaper columnist is calling for me to be banned from an entire country tells me that I’m doing my job. As for her suggestions that I don’t care about women’s health, nothing could be further from the truth. Abortion is not health care, and women deserve better.”

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 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.

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 -

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 –  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

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

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

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.


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. -

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.
