If photos could talk? Created equal's photo should stop anyone in their tracks. Their site has some well done videos and some good ways to get involved. I particularly like the logic of using terms like preborn babies and relating this logic to scripture in Mk 12:31 "love our neighbors" and Prov. 24:10 rescue those being led to slaughter.

What really got me involved in this abortion educational issues and the gross lack of political policy that is not addressing the current data was the political issues going on currently in California. The public university system in California could begin contracting with Planned Parenthood to send its abortionists into student health centers to administer chemical abortions. Read the April 26, 2019 Daily Signal here. The California state Senate Education Committee recently approved Senate Bill 24, known as the College Student Right to Access Act. The bill would add a new chapter to state education code to require student health care clinics at all 34 California public colleges and universities to “offer abortion by medication techniques”—aka “the abortion pill”—starting on Jan. 1, 2023.
IN THE early 1970s, the women's movement demanded that abortion be legalized as part of a larger movement for women's rights. It was clear that, without control over their own reproductive lives, women couldn't be the equals of men--no matter what advances women made in the job market or in higher education.
This is why socialists argue that all women deserve the right to control their own bodies, without interference from anyone.
I AGREE we absolutely need women's rights. We absolutely must teach young girls to "control their bodies and practice pregnancy PREVENTION if they are sexually active. They must be mentored to have a season in-training for their life purpose, passion, gift or career/job skills! Absolutely! However this has nothing to do with using abortion as birth control. These precious young girls desperately need SUCCESS COACHING AND MENTORING how to prevent "hookup sex" pregnancies. This is a complete failure of successful women helping young girls become successful in every area of life.
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam talk about what would happen to a baby born after a failed late-term abortion. He said, “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”
The thought process stunned the country. A discussion between a physician and mother about what would happen to that baby? Only one thing should happen – every effort should be undertaken in order to save that baby.
First, of all LESS than 2% of all abortions are done in a hospital or in a medical doctors offices with an "established" "relationship" with a physician. There is NO relationship established in free standing Abortion Clinics.
The purpose or mission statement or business plan is ABORTION. There is no discussion if the provider messes up and delivers the baby alive. What is Governor Northan talking about. "A discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” There is no discussion. Are we expecting this female who made the decision to abort her baby late term to now in a crises situation suddenly change her mind and become a loving MOM! This is complete mental illness to even speak this language let alone believe it is going to happen or worse even put a patient into this circumstance. The patient is traumatized, the baby is traumatized, the staff is traumatized (hopefully) Delivering an infant ALIVE in a failed abortion? Emphasis on FAILED, ERROR, MESSED UP. Are you kidding me?
This is why Abortions Procedures should only be done in a hospital. These errors wouldn't happen, no female would ever be put in this position or ever asked "oh we made a mistake and your infant is still alive so do you want to now change your mind?" "We will keep your baby comfortable until you decide" "If you still want to continue we have legislation that protects us and we can go ahead and use pharmaceuticals and complete the infant demise?" And your answer is? Remember, 34% are only 20 to 24 years old. Are we legislating putting these young girls in this situation? Has Washington lost their minds?
These statistics can be completely changed for the better IF successful teams of women would get involved in a young girls life. Mothers need to have these conversations with their baby girls.
We must do it and I am going to do it with 3D/4D ultrasound photographs. Its time to raise up an army of successful Christian women who can mentor and counsel, help and LOVE these young girls into REAL Healthy CHOICES. Every choice possible should be discussed especially the choice of the top 3 concerns we discovered on national research studies. (1) finances, (2) ability to be a mother (3) parenting alone. This is what the data is telling us. This girl is concerned about the ability to BE A MOTHER. Who is helping her work out these fears? The top 3 concerns have nothing to do with her wanting an abortion.
As Christians we are in the business of saving miracles, pointing out miracles, praying for miracles and lifting up heroes of young pregnant girls. Helping them tap into the supernatural courage to believe God that HE will hold her hand and help her. Mentors make sure their mentoree's don't fail. A hero places their miracle into the loving arms of parents who will finish this race for them! It's called the miracle of Adoption.
We can fix this political issue that is dividing this country. However, we must first.....clean up the lies.
Here's the girls statistics we must yield too. I want to have a loving conversation with these girls. Girls in their 20s accounted for the majority of abortion rates in 2024 & 2015 (CDC).These are NOT the girls represented in the Abortion Marches or Celebrity A-List tantrums. These are also NOT the rape/abortion statistics. Rape is less than 0.5% of all abortions. 3% is fetal health problems. 4% was mother's health problem.
1. 17% of abortion patients in 2014 identified themselves as mainline Protestant Believers in Jesus
2. 13% as evangelical Protestant Believers in Jesus
3. 24% as Catholic Believers
4. 38% reported no religious affiliation
5. 8% reported some other affiliation
6. 73% of all United States abortions were "healthy "young girls in their 20's
The three most common reasons—cited by 75% of abortion patients--
(1) the inability to afford raising a child
(2) the belief that having a baby would interfere with work, or school
(3) the inability to care for dependents.
Not one of them reported they wanted "control" over their body or a women's right to choose. These girls said they were concerned they couldn't be successful raising a child, working (school) or taking care of other children.
This is not a pro-life or pro-abortion issue. This is an educational issue. We need to start teaching girls how NOT to get pregnant in the first place. We need to mentor girls HOW to honor their bodies and prepare for motherhood by mentoring her OUT OF POVERTY and into a successful lifestyle and dating.
What about changing the conversation back to the VICTIM who no one is listening too in Washington. They are too busy getting their photos taken on the HILL for all to see or bashing the President.
No one is helping that young girl learn what it feels like to be respected, dated, honored, and blessed. She's cohabiting and feels alone? Say what? Is she being used while he looks for his real wife, who he does honor? Lets teach the "success secrets" God speaks directly to girls in Proverbs 31:10-31
Her thrift makes him rich; her noble character gives him additional title to respect. His personality derives weight from the possession of such a treasure, the devotion of such a heart. Her business capacity, her energy, and the quiet dignity of her life and bearing; the mingled sense and shrewdness, charm and grace of her conversation (vers. 24-27); - are all a source of fame, of noble self-complacency, of just confidence to the man who is blessed to call her "mine." Her children, as they grow up, bless her for the inestimable boon of a mother's care and love. She has revealed to them God; and never can they cease to believe in goodness so long as they recollect her. She basks in the sunshine of a husband's constant approved. "Best of wives!" "Noblest of women!" is the thought ever in his heart, often on his lips. And the works of love for God's sake and man's fill the air with fragrance to the latest end of time, and are found unto praise, honor, and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ!
