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 could write a poem about how one day he too would be called an American?
Can you imagine if babies that were not going to be killed by abortion could hide others that were scheduled for death?
Can you imagine if when the abortionist tried to kill a young little girl she was able to sit down in the womb with resolve and say, “I will not be killed”?
Can you imagine the speech a young child would give proclaiming the day all innocent pre-born children are counted as human?
While we know these things are impossible for the children in the womb to accomplish, they are not impossible for us. We do have a voice; we now need to find the courage, determination, resolve and passion to fight against the oppression of innocent children.
Some may say, “How dare you compare abortion with the holocaust or oppression of African Americans!” I say how dare we not. How dare we look back at some of the most brutal, inhumane and dehumanizing acts in history and not also include the killing of innocent babies?
Several years ago ushered in a new era in America. With the election of Barack Obama to the Presidency, we saw something many people believed would not happen in their lifetime. We witnessed something that we should all be proud of regardless of our political views. America took one more step towards equality and wiping out racial prejudices.
So many people do not believe they will see the killing of innocent children stop in their lifetime either. So many people have accepted the abortion holocaust as status quo. I refuse to accept or believe that we cannot defeat this evil.
It is time, my friends, to adopt the words that describe these great humans I wrote about. It is time to believe that we will usher in an era where pre-born children are considered full human persons. It is time to use our voices to proclaim life and freedom for the thousands of our brothers and sisters who die needlessly every day.
We have now lived through 40 years of decriminalized child killing in America, a full generation of the bloodiest genocide in history. It is time to put this hateful chapter in the history books and usher in a culture of life.
It is time to say: They, Too, America.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has announced the results of his investigation and he indicates the abortion giant appears to be breaking state laws regarding the disposal of the bodies of aborted babies.
“All three Ohio Planned Parenthood affiliates, including the Columbus facility, have sent fetal remains to companies which disposed of the fetuses in landfill,” the investigative report indicates.
The Attorney General argues that this is in violation of Ohio Revised Code (3701-47-05) which requires that aborted fetal remains be disposed humanely.
Ohio is the second state to indicate Planned Parenthood is unlawfully disposing of the bodies of aborted babies.
Stand True President, Bryan Kemper said, “How many times does Planned Parenthood have to violate laws or kill young women before we see them for what they are? The core value of Planned Parenthood is the destruction of human life so it should come as no surprise that they would desecrate the remains of those they kill in this way. It is time for all of us in Ohio and across the nation to stand up and demand our leadership to defund, shutdown and prosecute Planned Parenthood.”
Mark Harrington of Created Equal stated:”Planned Parenthood not only murders babies, they harvest their baby parts. Now, babies they don’t harvest for parts are hauled off in trucks and dumped in landfills. This is sickening! How long will taxpayers stand idling by and permit the abortion cartel to get away with this? Planned Parenthood doesn’t just need defunded, Planned Parenthood needs defeated. These facilities need to be shut down now!” — Mark Harrington, Executive Director, Created Equal
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life commented, “You can’t practice vice, virtuously. We are not surprised at this discovery and we urge the appropriate authorities to take swift and decisive action against these clinics.”
Dr Alveda King asks:”Dear Planned Parenthood, It’s Christmas time again. Psalm 127:3 says, “Children are a gift from the Lord.” Is this how you treat God’s precious gift? ”
Many people have asked me to speak about how many more people have died in abortion mills than in the Paris attacks. Many people are pointing out how the media and the world have not reacted the same way to terror attacks on other countries. While comparisons may be relevant and true, while the hypocrisy may be glaring in our faces, the pain and horror of what happened in Paris is still real and painful. Attacks anywhere and the killing of innocent human beings anywhere is equally horrific. The reality is however that an attack in a place like Paris is scary to most because it brings to light the reality that it can happen anywhere, to anyone at any time and that has awoken the world to something they should have already been awake to. I abhor the killing of innocent human beings in all situations whether it is abortion, terror attacks or any act of murder. That being said, I am mourning those lost in Paris and there is nothing wrong with that and it does not mean I have put more importance on this event, it is just the right thing to do.
On Sunday, Nov 1st, Stand True President, Bryan Kemper and two of his children joined local pro-life activists in exposing the truth at a pro-abortion rally in Dayton, OH. The rally was a celebration of years of child killing by Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities in the Dayton area. About 20 peaceful pro-life activists came to the rally to show exactly what they were celebrating and to to expose the darkness of abortion.
The activists were peaceful and respectful of the crowd, not interrupting the rally but simply showing them what it was exactly that they were promoting and celebrating. Bryan, his children and several of the activist held up images of the victims of abortion who were being dismissed as merely “choices” by the speakers at the rally. They wanted to give these victims the dignity of being recognized as the human persons they are.
At one point in the rally, Bryan’s ten-year-old son, Jaemison, who had asked to come along and protest, was holding a sign that he had picked out, when a pro-abortion protester decided to target and mock him. Jaemison did not waiver or even give this person a second thought; he just continued to stand and show the truth without fear. Jaemison is a true hero and a good representation of the pro-life generation that is emerging more and more.
After about an hour at the rally, Bryan put down his sign to walk around the Courthouse Square, a public area in Dayton, to take photos of the rally. The Dayton police were called to remove all pro-lifers from this public area. While the rally organizers had a permit to gather and hold a rally, they did not have ownership of this public square but the police demanded all pro-lifers leave and go to the sidewalk area outside the Courthouse Square.
Because the officers were claiming that he couldn’t be there even though he was not protesting at the time, Bryan approached them to ask why they were denying him access to public property. One of the pro-abortion protesters claimed that his pro-life shirt constituted a protest sign and disqualified him from being in the public area. The officer mocked the pro-lifers and said, “it’s Sunday. Normal people are out enjoying the day, not causing problems”. When Bryan tried to explain that he had no sign and was not protesting, the officer said, ” I don’t care. You go over there”. The officer also admitted that there was no copy of the permit on hand, and that he could not show it to us as he did not have it, yet he still kicked us off public property.
Here is a short video of the incident post by Keep Life Legal of Dayton, OH:
Please pray for these activists as they seek legal advice on what there next step is in dealing with this injustice. The police may have denied them of free speech rights, but they will never be silent and will continue to stand for those without a voice.

A new undercover video was released this morning by the Center for Medical Progress, further exposing the sales trade of human body parts for profit in America. In this video, Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress is seen joking about fully intact babies and how to ship them. No matter how many claims of editing people want to throw out there, it is very clear what is going on in these conversations.
One of the most glaring things talked about in this new video was volume, how many body parts are actually harvested from Planned Parenthood. Dyer talks about how much of a high volume organization Planned Parenthood is, which is in direct contradiction to one of Planned Parenthood’s biggest talking points, the “three percent” lie.
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life said, “We have consistently maintained that Planned Parenthood profits from the sale of baby body parts. This video shows that clearly. Making a profit on the sale of body parts is against federal law. Despite the convictions of some abortion advocates, Planned Parenthood is not above the law. It is time to hold them accountable for their actions, and it is time for us to hold our public officials accountable for their responsibility to properly investigate and prosecute this illegal enterprise.”
After you watch this video, please share it on every social media channel you have.
We are also excited to introduce the new, “Defund, Shutdown and Prosecute Planned Parenthood” t-shirt available now at prolifeworld.com
Abortion Supporters Plan Counter Protest
On Saturday, August 22 public protests of Planned Parenthood (PP) abortion clinics and facilities will take place all over the United States. Thousands are expected to attend these protests with the purpose of creating awareness of the barbaric practice of abortion and the sale of aborted baby body parts — a scandal that has erupted in recent weeks due to undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress. Currently, there are over 300 cities in 47 states and 5 countries represented in the nationwide protest.
What: Protest PP’s disrespect for human life, harvesting and selling of aborted baby parts
When: August 22, 2015 from 9:00am-11:00am
For more information, go to ProtestPP.com
Radical pro-abortion groups have organized counter protests in several cities. “We are going to be out there … it’s up to us to make a big noise,” Sunsara Taylor, founder of StopPatriarchy.org, said recently in the Washington Times.
Recently released videos have shown the results of Planned Parenthood’s barbarous trade of killing babies and harvesting and selling their body parts.
Mark Harrington, Created Equal’s National Director:
“We don’t just want to defund Planned Parenthood; we want to defeat Planned Parenthood. We cannot only look to Washington, DC and our state governments to end the killing. It is up to each of us individually to take ownership over our own neighborhoods to stop Planned Parenthood and end abortion altogether.”
#ProtestPP is the largest demonstration against Planned Parenthood in their 99 year history.
Eric Scheidler of Pro-Life Action League:
“These videos are exposing the American people to the truth about Planned Parenthood and the truth about abortion. How can you deny the humanity of a tiny person whose body parts are being harvested for medical use? Worse yet, how can you make jokes about it, like the Planned Parenthood doctors do in these videos? It’s time to cease all taxpayer funding of this corrupt organization.”
#ProtestPP involves prayer, speakers and holding signs that read #PPSellSBabyParts.
Monica M. Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society comments:
“When PP technicians are scavenging through the body parts of aborted babies to find tissue that they hope to sell, this adds a whole new gruesome and ghoulish layer to the already highly controversial practice of abortion in America. It’s bad enough that Planned Parenthood is profiting from abortions–but on top of that they exploit the bodies of their murder victims for additional revenue. It is the abortion providers themselves who describe what they do as violence.”
I am not even going to write about this video, it speaks for itself. Once you watch this video please go to protest.com and join us this weekend as thousands of people in hundreds of cities around the nation will raising their voice against Planned Parenthood.
