This is the generation that will abolish abortion!

Stand True has again been offered a $4,000 Matching Grant Donation by a generous donor for our end of year fundraising.

 

This is amazing news as we are starting our December fundraising; for the next month every dollar we raise will be doubled by a very generous donor who will match it up to $4,000. So for every dollar you are able donate this month, it will be automatically doubled. If you donate $25 then Stand True will actually get $50. If you donate $100 Stand True will actually get $200; I think you get the picture.

Please help us receive 100% of this amazing matching grant donation by making a donation today to Stand True. The potential of raising $8,000 this month would free us to restock all of our empty literature shelves as well as invest in new pro-life resources.

This year we also want to help with toys for families in need this Christmas. We just finished helping to feed families for Thanks Giving and want to continue this community outreach through Christmas.

The presumed election of California Sen. Kamala Harris as vice president of the United States is a setback for women and the Black community.

I find it tragially ironic that so many people are ready to designate Sen. Harris as vice president-elect before any votes are certified. These same people – including virtually every “journalist” in the leftist media – are proclaiming her election an historic achievement for women of color in the U.S.

In normal circumstances I would agree that a Black woman being elected to the second highest office in the U.S. would be a giant step forward. This would be worthy of celebration no matter which party she represented because another glass ceiling would have been shattered.

But these are not normal circumstances and I cannot celebrate Harris’s achievement because she is a woman who enthusiastically and with absolute intention puts both women and children in mortal danger with her support of the world’s most deadly organization, an organization that exists to further expand and carry out the gruesome murder of innocent babies. In fact, this organization actually focuses its abhorrent practices on Black babies by building its killing centers in predominantly Black and minority neighborhoods.

 If you have not yet figured out which organization I am talking about or what heinous practice it carries out, you may not believe what I’m saying about Harris. But I am referring to a real organization that Harris totally supports – and that supports her politically and financially in return. I am talking about a practice she wants to keep legal and actually expand access to by having taxpayers foot the bill.

 I am talking about the abortion giant Planned Parenthood, an organization that performs about a third of all abortions in America.  Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger, a racist eugenicist with ties to the Nazis and a plan to eradicate what she considered “human weeds” like Blacks, Jews, epileptics – a racial cleansing plan that also included those with disabilities or diseases.

 Planned Parenthood kills more than 900 innocent human beings every day. Not potential human beings, but human beings with great potential. Science cannot not be clearer that life begins at the moment of conception. Zygote, embryo, fetus, infant, toddler, teenager, adult… these are all just stages in the developing life of a human being.

Sen. Kamala Harris’s support of abortion in general, and Planned Parenthood in particular, does nothing to advance the status of women or the Black community. The Biden-Harris team has pledged to reverse President Trump’s executive order that took $60 million in federal funding away from Planned Parenthood, which would then enable the organization to encourage more Black women to kill their babies.

If this voter fraud underpinning our presidential election is not exposed and corrected, and Harris is indeed sworn in as vice president of the United States, it will be a bleak day for women and the Black community. The streets will run with the blood of even more innocents, and more women will be fed the lie that they can achieve their dreams only by aborting their own children.

Our culture bombards women with the insidious and false message that an unplanned pregnancy is the worst thing that can happen to their plans – for school, for careers, for future relationships. In reality, the assertion that bearing a child will eliminate the opportunity for a woman to achieve greatness is a glaringly anti-feminist and misogynistic belief. For many women, the abortion is what derailed their plans because it brought with it crippling regret and unanticipated heartbreak. Pregnancy is not a disease that can be cured by abortion.  

The continued worldwide growth of organizations that offer healing after abortion, like Rachel’s Vineyard, and the voices of courageous women in groups like the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and Operation Outcry who talk about the devastation that followed their abortions, are all the proof needed to assert that the shockwaves of abortion touch every part of our society and reverberate for generations. This is nowhere more evident than in the Black community, where the abortion rate is many times higher than it is for White women and Latinas.

Kamala Harris’s support for an organization dedicated to killing as many Black children as possible is not a step forward for the U.S., the Black community or women. It is certainly not cause for celebration.

2020 Pro-life Day Of Silent Solidarity will be a day of prayer for the election.

Obviously this year has not gone as planned for almost any event. We have decided to just ask people to spend the day in prayer for our election and our President. The Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity will return in 2021.

We invite you to join us in the election prayer from electionprayer.com

O God, we acknowledge you today as Lord,
Not only of individuals, but of nations and governments.

We thank you for the privilege
Of being able to organize ourselves politically
And of knowing that political loyalty
Does not have to mean disloyalty to you.

We thank you for your law,
Which our Founding Fathers acknowledged
And recognized as higher than any human law.

We thank you for the opportunity that this election year puts before us,
To exercise our solemn duty not only to vote,
But to influence countless others to vote,
And to vote correctly.

Lord, we pray that your people may be awakened.
Let them realize that while politics is not their salvation,
Their response to you requires that they be politically active.

Awaken your people to know that they are not called to be a sect fleeing the world
But rather a community of faith renewing the world.

Awaken them that the same hands lifted up to you in prayer
Are the hands that pull the lever in the voting booth;
That the same eyes that read your Word
Are the eyes that read the names on the ballot,
And that they do not cease to be Christians
When they enter the voting booth.

Awaken your people to a commitment to justice
To the sanctity of marriage and the family,
To the dignity of each individual human life,
And to the truth that human rights begin when human lives begin,
And not one moment later.

Lord, we rejoice today
That we are citizens of your kingdom.

May that make us all the more committed
To being faithful citizens on earth.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The thought of Planned Parenthood advocate Sen. Kamala Harris being one step from the Oval Office is terrifying.

It doesn’t require a conspiracy theory to predict how soon Sen. Harris could become president of the United States should Joe Biden be elected President. It’s honestly on everyone’s minds: How quickly would Biden step down, elevating Harris to the presidency? As a pro-life activist, this thought gives me chills as I think about how utterly pro-abortion she is and how in bed with Planned Parenthood she has proven to be.

Several years ago, pro-life investigative journalist David Daleiden released undercover videos that exposed Planned Parenthood’s scheme for harvesting and selling the body parts of its abortion victims. Harris was then the California attorney general and she ordered a raid of Daleiden’s apartment – at the request of Planned Parenthood, Daleiden said – to search for the videos he shot of Planned Parenthood officials talking about changing abortion procedures to get intact organs, or discussing how the harvesting scheme would lead to one official being able to buy a luxury car.

Also in 2016, when Daleiden’s apartment was raided, Harris was running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Barbara Boxer. Her campaign website asked supporters to defend Planned Parenthood – a conflict of interest so glaring that even the Los Angeles Times reported on it.

Her hypocrisy was in evidence when, as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, she asked William Barr, then President Trump’s nominee for U.S. attorney general, why he didn’t recuse himself from the probe into Russia’s alleged election meddling. Op-eds he wrote FIND THEM were a conflict of interest, Harris maintained, at the same time she was helping Planned Parenthood hide its baby parts harvesting scandal while accepting campaign donations from the nation’s largest abortion seller.

Our nation is witnessing a surge of lawlessness and anarchy in the streets of major liberal cities, with Democratic leadership turning a blind eye to violence and crime, and even going so far as condoning it by calling it “peaceful protest” that should be protected. 

We are witnessing a double standard everywhere. Last week two pro-life college students who had a permit to sidewalk chalk in Washington D.C. were arrested for doing so. While D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser had “Black Lives Matter” painted in giant letters on the streets of D.C., these pro-life students were arrested for chalking “Black Unborn Lives Matter” in front of Planned Parenthood. 

 For years Planned Parenthood and Democrats have called peaceful pro-life activists “terrorists.” They have sued and attempted to prosecute pro-lifers as racketeers, domestic terrorists and violent activists. I was sued by then-Attorney General Janet Reno for peacefully sitting and praying in front of the doors of Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills. 

Now we see organizations like ANITFA and other anarchist groups being hailed as peaceful protesters while their members take over city blocks, burn and vandalize buildings and violently attack police officers and first responders. This is considered a protected peaceful protest, while  offering a woman an alternative to abortion or doing a peaceful sit in is considered terrorism. 

 The disastrous effects of a Joe Biden presidency would be seen in every appointment he makes, from cabinet members to federal judges. That his first appointment was someone whose integrity is so compromised, and who would be one step away from the Oval Office, should send shockwaves of fear into every American, not just pro-lifers. 

 Think long and hard about what it would be like if the insanity taking place in places like Portland and Seattle came to small-town America. Imagine a world where you could not own a business, walk down a city street or even just sit on your porch without fear of anarchy and violence. Then imagine that on top of that fear you have no recourse because your local police department was defunded and disbanded. 

These are things that could – and I believe would – happen with Biden in the White House and Harris as his understudy.

 I urge you to imagine this scenario from now until Nov. 3 and make sure everyone you know is registered to vote and does exactly that. VOTE!

Stand True founder, Bryan Kemper, organizes Protesters and Police in Troy, Ohio, to gather around a phone to pray with MLK’s niece



A protest rally in Troy, Ohio, on Monday became a symbol of what can happen when people are willing to listen to each other and pray together.

About 150 mostly young people, black, white and Latino, gathered in the town square to show their solidarity with George Floyd, the African-American man whose death at the hands of police in Minneapolis has sparked both peaceful rallies and violent riots across the country.

A video shot by The Troy Show, shared with permission here, shows Troy Police Officer Chris Tilley taking a knee in the center of the crowd to talk to the young people. Priests for Life Youth Outreach Director Bryan Kemper, a Troy resident, then calls his colleague, Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, to ask her to pray on speaker phone.

The crowd hushed when they heard that the niece of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be addressing them.

“Heavenly Father, I love these young people,” Evangelist King prayed. “I wish I could be there right among them. They have energy. They have enthusiasm. They want to make a difference. They know they were born for a purpose. … Help them to use their passion and their anger and even their confusion for Your good. Give them true answers, turn them around and let them win, win, win because they were born to be winners.”

After the gathering, Kemper said “I saw a lot of passion, pain and healing tonight in Troy. There were some tense moments but there were beautiful moments. I was able to get Evangelist Alveda King on the phone to lead the protesters and the police in a prayer together and it was beautiful. I pray for continued conversation.

“To be able to bring a voice like Alveda King to this moment was amazing. I’m truly blessed to work with and learn from Alveda and the values her family, including her Uncle Martin, instilled in her.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life added, “We thank God for the faith-filled citizens who are responding to this situation with prayer.”

The Other Night. – A Poem By Bryan Kemper



The other night I had a dream.

I dreamt I was in Hell.

It wasn’t like you think,

It was sort of like this Earth.

I remember walking down the street,

Wandering about.

I came upon a poor man,

Shivering in the street. His feet were bare,

His clothes were torn, Tangles in his hair.

He looked as if He’d been beaten up,

More than a time or two.

His stench was heavy in the air,

I had to hold my breath.

 

As I turned away,

A scream pierced my ear.

The fragile woman laying there,

Unable to move at all.

As he ripped at her clothes,

I could not stand to watch.

He took from her what was not his,

With no Remorse at all.

I had to leave,

I could not stand to watch.

I started to feel her pain.

Around the corner,

I saw a girl.

She smelled of cheap perfume.

She smiled at me,

And with a wink, Said all there was to say.

Thirteen, maybe fourteen,

That’s as old as she could be.

Her parents must be worried:

Where could their daughter be?

 

Next I stumbled upon a child,

His body, battered and bruised.

I stood in shock As I looked up,

He fell to the hands Of his own father.

How much more

Can I take

Of these morbid scenes of Hell?

 

Up in the distance, I see a line,

Forming at a door.

Out the back came a man,

Carrying a garbage bag.

In they filed

To add to the pile

Of America’s disgrace.

 

All of a sudden,

I tripped and fell,

I was in great pain.

But, wait a minute! This was a dream.

How could I feel this pain?

A dream indeed, No, not at all.

This is our very own world.

With all this wealth In the world,

Why can’t we feed the poor?

When we see someone Is in distress,

Why can’t we call for help?

Why won’t someone do something

About parents who hurt their kids?

And about this slaughter of pre-born babies,

Why won’t someone speak out?

 

Wait a minute!

What am I saying?

How can I be so blind?

Why leave it up To someone else?

What makes me so special?

Oh God, Oh God, Please have mercy!

Have mercy on my soul.

This was not a dream, This was not Hell,

This is the real world.

 

Next time I walk

Down these streets

And see these morbid sights,

Will I make an effort

To make a difference In someone else’s life?

The answer came in a dream,

A dream I had last night.

As I passed all those people,

The face I saw was Christ’s.

Tough Questions – I Am Pro-life But Can I Force My Morality On Anyone Else?

This is an argument I get so often from people who don’t want to take a stand against abortion or get involved with pro-life work. They always say that other people don’t believe that abortion is killing a human so we can’t force “our morality” on them. Just because we are pro-life does not mean we should tell someone who is not pro-life they should not have an abortion.

I will be honest; this to me is really just a cop-out, an excuse for people to not take a stand or get involved. The fact is, abortion is the taking of a human being’s life and whether someone refuses to see the truth does not change a clear fact. Just because you say that you don’t believe something that is true does not make it untrue.

Let’s look at a few instances in law where people’s disagreement with a truth does not make a difference in the law at all:

1. NAMBLA, an organization that believes that it is morally ok for grown men to sleep with young boys. Yes, this is a real organization that really believes the rest of the world is “pushing their morality” on them by enforcing child molestation laws on them. Should we change the law to allow these perverse men to have sexual relations with young boys just because they believe it is ok? Of course not.

2. Civil Rights Laws, there are still those who think minorities should be segregated and treated as less then human. The whole Civil Rights Movement was forcing a morality on America that needed to be forced. It was imperative that we, as a nation, stood against those who would treat any human person as less than human and establish personhood rights for every single human person.

3. Women’s Suffrage, there are still those who believe that women should not have the right to vote… I think you get the point.

The fact is, we, as a nation, have a duty to pass laws and protect people from inhuman treatment whether or not someone disagrees or not. We, as fellow humans, have a duty to stand up for any fellow human person when he or she is being oppressed, dehumanized or killed by the thousands every day.

Morality is forced on people every day and that is not a bad thing. We force our morality on criminals when they commit crimes, we force our morality on bar owners when we tell them they can’t allow smoking in their establishments. The fact is that almost all laws are forcing some form of morality on someone.

I understand that some people think that life does not begin at fertilization, but that does not change the fact that it does. The moment the sperm and egg are united, a unique human person is formed and has the right to full protection as a human person. When that child is “terminated” or “aborted,” that is an act of homicide.

Hom-i-cide:–noun
1. The killing of one human being by another.
2. A person who kills another; murderer.

So back to the question at hand – I Am Pro-life But Can I Force My Morality On Anyone Else?

Yes. In fact, you have a moral and biblical obligation to take a stand and love your neighbor as yourself. ( Luke 10:27 ) If you know that your neighbor ( fellow human person) is being killed by the thousands every day, you must stand up and be a voice for them.
