With bewilderment they ask,”What does that mean?”

They quickly realize, ” Are you pregnant?” the girls ask their mom.

Their mom answers, “It’s true” and the excitement on the girl’s faces is unreal!

Shocking Video: Millions Dead – Abortion vs. War!

Today, Life Dynamics Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas, has released a shocking video comparing unborn babies murdered inside American abortion clinics to those killed from American wars.

American Soldiers Killed War Life Dynamics

________________________________________

According to the latest statistics, there were 1.06 million abortions reported in the United States for the year 2011, the last year the stats have been publicly recorded.

From 1973 through 2011, at least 55 million unborn children have been slaughtered in the womb in our nation.

Although these figures do not represent all abortions performed in the United States the numbers reveal that the loss of human life from abortion is staggering.

War vs Abortion Life Dynamics

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics in explaining why they created this video said, “We did this video because it’s very easy to talk about 55 million dead babies but no one can fully wrap their minds around those numbers. This will help America understand just how overwhelming these numbers are and demonstrate the magnitude of abortion in the United States.”

A stunning new video graphically displays the sheer magnitude of abortion in the United States in a clever, if chilling, way.

Life Dynamics released the video today. One jar contains red beads, one for every 1,000 soldiers who have died in all U.S. wars since the American Revolution.

Another series of larger jars contain multi-colored beads, each of which represents 1,000 children who died from abortion since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.

“These people did not die for any noble cause. They were killed simply because someone wanted them dead and someone else was hired to kill them,” the video says.

The sound of marbles clinking into one another goes on, and on, and on.

Life Dynamics Bead 1000 babies

Even this display does not capture the full picture, as complete abortion statistics do not exist. Most estimates place the number of abortions at 56 million in 41 years.

“Although these figures do not represent all abortions performed in the United States the numbers reveal that the loss of human life from abortion is staggering,” the organization said.

Dear Son: remembering baby Scotland Bansley Riles born at 20 weeks and loved dearly

At almost 20 weeks pregnant, Tom Riles and his wife lost Scotland Bansley Riles to miscarriage.

Scotland
Riles said that when they received the news that the baby had died in the womb, they were offered several options – go to a “clinic” to “take care of the situation” or go to the Hospital. He said that they chose the hospital to deliver the baby because of their FAITH. Riles said he was so thankful they did it that way.

He and his wife were placed in a high risk section of the maternity wing so they were not around other babies being born but received a ton of support from friends and family as well as the hospital staff.

On his Life of Dad Show, Riles recounts their sad experience, “As the day went on, it was devastating but she went into labor and had the baby…and that’s why I wanted to tell this story because I wanted people to know that this is an option. The baby was born, we held the baby, the doctor gave the baby to us, and we were with him for about an hour just taking turns holding and singing to him and talking to him and telling about his brother and sister and we were crying, we’re crushed, but at he same time it was beautiful. Even though our son wasn’t alive, life never felt so, I can’t think of the right verb, amazing….parts of it were amazing, to be holding your son there… At the same time you’re thinking about the life that he’s not going to have…so sad but at the same time so powerful knowing and proud knowing that we, especially my wife, did everything she could for that kid, and gave him the same respect and love and support as she did our other two babies that are of course, are alive…and to have no regrets at this point.”

This was originally posted to the Life of Dad Blog:

Dear Son,

I held you on Friday night for the first and last time ever. It was one of the saddest, proudest, most heartbreaking, and beautiful moments of my life. It was an honor to hold you.

I’m proud of you, son. Even though you only made it halfway through the pregnancy, you have left a mark on our family that will last forever. Because of you, I love my wife more than ever. Because of you, I feel a stronger connection with my kids then ever. When I hug them, I feel your presence.

Sadly, I’ll always remember the phone call last week from your mom when she told me that we lost you. I was home with your brother and sister, and I was in shock. Your pregnancy seemed to be the smoothest and most healthy one that your mom had ever had. I did my best to comfort her on the phone, and then we grieved together when you both got home. Our kids didn’t let us cry too much, though, because they kept requesting snacks, more snacks, and more snacks after that.

Usually Friday is a day that I look forward to, but not last Friday. I never shave on Fridays, but this time I did. This was the only day that I would ever hold you…I had to look my best. When we checked into the hospital at 8AM, it was a dark, dreary, and rainy day, just like the feeling in our hearts.

Your mom took medication to start the labor process, and over the next 10 hours, she showed her love and devotion to you as we neared your birth. By the way, your mom is the most incredible and beautiful person I have ever met. I’m so lucky to be with her and call her my wife.

At 8:35PM on Friday, February 28th, you were born. Even though there was no life in your beautiful body, you were full of love, heart, and courage.

ScotlandScotty, that is your older brother, Tommy, blowing out a candle celebrating your life.

ScotlandYour mom held you, and then it was my turn. I felt both happy and devastated to be holding my second son in the palm of my hands. We cried. We told you about your brother and sister. We visualized you running through open fields somewhere, free, happy, and full of life. We sang to you. After singing the final line of “Silent Night” to you… “Sleep in heavenly peace…” we knew that it was time to say goodbye.

You were with us for way too short of a time, but you will be remembered forever. We named you Scotland Bansley Riles, and your mom and I will bring your ashes with us someday when we travel to Scotland. Usually we don’t travel with our kids (they’re a little too crazy), but we want to show you the world.

Our precious Scotty… I miss you more than I’ve ever missed anything. We love you. We will honor you. We will be better parents and people because of you. Thank you.

Love, Dad

IMG_1010Scotty, that is your older brother, Tommy, blowing out a candle celebrating your life.
For anybody that is going through a situation like this, know that you are not alone.

Riles said that he posted this letter and is speaking about this because he said when people go through a miscarriage they feel they are all alone.

Munoz family releases statement on unborn baby whose mother is on life support

Posted in Life Support with tags , , , , , , , on January 23, 2014 by saynsumthn

Written by: Carole Novielli

Update at 4:17 p.m.:

The judge has sided with the family of Marlise Muñoz and ordered JPS Hospital to declare the pregnant woman dead and withdraw life support by 5 p.m. Monday.

Muñoz husband, Erick Muñoz, declined to comment as he left the courtroom. His attorney Jessica Janicek said justice was done.

Larry M. Thompson, attorney for the hospital, referred comment to JPS.

Munoz’s other attorney, Heather King, would not discuss the hospital’s argument, noting that JPS had the option to appeal the decision by Monday afternoon.

Read more from the DMN:

Attorneys for the family of a pregnant Haltom City woman who has been on life support at John Peter Smith Hospital for eight weeks issued a statement late Wednesday that the fetus is “distinctly abnormal.”

munoz family

“[T]he fetus is distinctly abnormal,” said Muñoz family attorneys Heather King and Jessica Janicek in the statement. “Even at this early stage, the lower extremities are deformed to the extent that the gender cannot be determined.”

Munoz Statement

The attorneys say the fetus has hydrocephalus (water on the brain), and a possible heart problem, though details can’t be determined “due to the immobile nature of Mrs. Muñoz’s deceased body.”

The fetus, which was deprived of oxygen for “an indeterminate length of time, is gestating within a dead and deteriorating body as the horrified family looks on,” the attorneys said.

Marlise Muñoz, 33, was 14 weeks pregnant when she collapsed Nov. 26. She was taken to JPS, where doctors told her husband that she was brain-dead. He and other relatives asked that life support be removed.

The attorneys ended the statement reiterating the complaints filed in the suit are not directly related to the condition of the fetus, but rather to the vital status of the mother, saying the statute requiring life-sustaining measures for a pregnant patient “does not apply to the dead.”

“Were that to be true, then it would be incumbent upon all health care providers to immediately conduct pregnancy tests on any woman of childbearing age who becomes deceased, and upon determining the deceased body was pregnant, hooking the body up to machines in an attempt to continue gestation,” the statement reads. “Surely, such a result was never intended nor should it be inferred.”

Fort Worth attorney Trent Loftin, who isn’t connected to the case, said he believes Friday’s hearing in front of District Judge R.H. Wallace likely won’t be the end of the case.

“I think whatever the judge decides, the other side will appeal to the second court of appeals and eventually to the supreme court of the state of Texas,” Loftin said.

Pro-life citizens of Texas recently rallied in support of the Texas law saying the law protected life. (click here for more quotes, vids and pics of that rally

Pastor Stephen E. Broden of Fair Park Bible Fellowship and Founder of National Black Pro-Life Coalition told supporters, “There is a baby, the baby is alive…There is an alternative for the family. There are families willing to take the baby and provide a safe place for it to grow in a loving environment. If we err, we should err on the side of life,” he said.

WFAA protest

“We feel great compassion for the family of Marlise Munoz and her pre-born baby. No one ever wants to be in their difficult and tragic situation,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue who suggested the vigil to local activists. “Marlise wanted this baby, and as long as there is a chance that he or she can be saved, we support John Peter Smith Hospital in their bid to follow the law and protect this baby’s life.”

January 22, 2014 Anderson Cooper’s panel discussed the Marlise Munoz case – the family wants her removed from life support which would kill the unborn child who at this point is almost 24 weeks along.


Anderson Cooper falsely states that Marlise Munoz had a written statement of her wishes and after the show he gave a statement of correction not showing on this video.

Pro-lifers pray for unborn child whose family wants pregnant mother pulled from life support

Posted in Life Support, NARAL, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2014 by saynsumthn

Written by Carole Novielli (photo credits:/all photos unmarked=same)

UPDATED JAN 14, 2014 This morning, Munoz took another step toward fulfilling JPS’ wish for clarity, filing suit in Tarrant County District Court. In the suit, he says the hospital has diagnosed her has “brain dead” and that all life-sustaining treatments should be stopped.

Keeping her alive “makes no sense, and amounts to nothing more than the cruel and obscene mutilation of a deceased body against the expressed will of the deceased and her family.”

A copy of the suit is available here

Sunday afternoon (January 12, 2014) a group or pro-life leaders held a prayer vigil outside the Texas hospital where a 33-year-old pregnant woman is being kept on life-support to give her 20-week-old pre-born baby an chance at life.

__________________________________________________

Marlise Munoz collapsed in her home last November from an apparent blood clot in her lungs when she was 14 weeks pregnant with her second child. Her husband and other family members have asked the John Peter Smith Hospital in Ft. Worth to remove Marlise from life support after they were told she was “brain dead.” Ending life support would also end her pre-born baby’s life.

munoz family

So far John Peter Smith Hospital officials have refused to follow the family’s request, citing a Texas law that prohibits hospitals from removing life support from pregnant women.

That Texas statute states: “Sec. 166.049. PREGNANT PATIENTS. �A person may not withdraw or withhold life-sustaining treatment under this subchapter from a pregnant patient.”
___________________________________________________________

As was expected the side of death protested for the removal of life support at the same time.

“It’s about a life,” Timm Hobbs of Denton told the Ft Worth Telegraph. “We are here to support that baby.”

Hobbs was there with his wife Renee and two young sons.

Pro-lifers were led in the reading of scriptures on life by Sue Cyr. “We know that baby was created for many wonderful things,” Cyr begins, “Revelation 5 You are a Holy Awesome God….Lord, you have told us we are our brother’s keeper and that whatever we do for the least of Thee we do for you,” she continued.

The atmosphere was prayerful as media made their way to the pro-lifers.

IMG_0643IMG_0646IMG_0644
_____________________________________________________

NARAL Pro-choice America has set up a petition they say is “for the Munoz family.” The family wants the 20 week pregnant mother disconnected from life support which would kill the baby. Pro-lifers oppose this move as it would kill the unborn child.

IMG_0683

Local Pro-lifer Carole Novielli responded, “What I find outrageous is that there is no written directive which spells out Marlise’s wishes. This woman has carried her child for 20 weeks, she obviously wanted this baby. Yet NARAL, who always claims to ‘protect women’ has decided to side with the woman’s husband in this case and to call for life support to be pulled. NARAL always sides with death and in this case it is the death of a woman and her child. When will the media call NARAL out on this hypocrisy? Regardless, Texas law clearly states that a pregnant woman must be kept alive in cases such as these.”

Novielli is interviewed in the news videos from WFAA below:

There is a baby, the baby is alive and has a heartbeat and it is growing,” Rev. Broden tells the crowd. “So we want to pray that God will move and soften the hearts of the Munoz family,” he said.

____________________________________________

Being brain dead is not the affirmative biological definition of death,” Broden exclaims. “It is a created definition. It was created in 1960 by a group of doctors at Harvard,” Broden explains.

IMG_0671

The mother is nurturing that baby now, the baby is growing. Father we ask you that the child’s father would recognize that value and the dignity of that life and he would allow the baby to live. So we are praying now that there would be a softening of his heart and the grandparents that are involved and recognize that this is life. That they Father, would release their demand to have the ventilation removed, to pull the plug. But rather insist that they allow the baby to live.”

The designation of “brain death” is a controversial one and presents moral and ethical issues, especially when the life of a baby is involved. There are many cases where babies have survived after the mothers have experienced similar situations to that of Marlise Munoz. There is a very strong possibility that Marlise’s baby could survive, given a little more time.

Here are some examples:

In 1982 a brain dead woman was put on life support for several days until her unborn child could be delivered.

Michele Odette Poole was delivered in 1985 after her mother was declared brain dead. Her father won a legal battle against the woman’s parents who had requested that life support be disconnected

In March of 1986, doctors successfully delivered a baby at the University of California’s Moffitt Hospital, whose mother was declared legally dead in January and was kept on life support to protect the child.

In November of 1991, Tracy Bucher gave birth to a baby boy after she was pronounced as brain dead. She was kept on life support for six weeks while her unborn child developed inside her.

In November of 1997, Lisa Nottingham was four months when she suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and was declared brain dead in August. She was kept alive by a machine until her baby could safely be delivered the following November.

Susan Anne Catherine Tores was born in September of 2005 after her mother was kept on life support for three months after being pronounced legally dead. Despite heroic efforts the child succumbed to a respiratory illness and died a few days later.

In June of 2006, a brain dead woman kept alive for more than two months gave birth to a baby girl. She was named Christine and her last name was withheld by the media.

The Munoz family told Fox 4 in Dallas that when Marlise went down it was uncertain how long the baby was without oxygen. Erick Munoz said that is a concern for him.

Fox 4 News of the protests:

Is it possible that the real concern here for Marlise’s husband is the health of his unborn child rather than Marlise’s wishes which were never put in writing?” asked Novielli.

We must save this baby. It is a person, guaranteed protection under the Constitution,” Broden told the Ft Worth Telegraph.

There is an alternative for the family. There are families willing to take the baby and provide a safe place for it to grow in a loving environment. If we err, we should err on the side of life,” he said.

“We feel great compassion for the family of Marlise Munoz and her pre-born baby. No one ever wants to be in their difficult and tragic situation,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue who suggested the vigil to local activists. “Marlise wanted this baby, and as long as there is a chance that he or she can be saved, we support John Peter Smith Hospital in their bid to follow the law and protect this baby’s life.

Dead woman’s autopsy pictures published by pro-life organization

We are going to show America what it looks like when women climb onto a table for an abortion and end up on an autopsy table a few hours later.” ~ Life Dynamics President, Mark Crutcher.

Life Dynamics, Inc. a national pro-life organization in Denton, Texas has published the autopsy images of a woman who died from a legal abortion.

The images are posted on the website Safe and Legal ( http://www.safeandlegal.com).
SafeandLegal.com

The website details the story of 18 year-old Marla Cardamone and her unborn child, both victims of legal abortion.

As the website explains, a medical counselor told the 18 year-old pregnant woman that the prescription medication she had been taking would cause her baby to be born with severe birth defects.

This counselor then began to push Marla to have an abortion. When she refused, the pressure was increased until it became more than she could resist.
At that point, an abortionist was brought in to kill her baby.

While he was at it, he also killed Marla.

What you will see is a picture of what this young woman looked like on the day she went for her “safe and legal” abortion.
(Click for Autopsy Images of Marla)

SafeandLegalabortion Marla Cardamone

Marla died before her son was taken out of her body. His grandmother named him Christopher Michael and requested that he be buried with his mother. She was informed that his body had already been thrown out as “medical waste.”

Unborn Autopsy Photo Marla's Babyphoto-41-698x1024

This is the actual coroner’s photo of him still inside her womb.

According to Life Dynamics President, Mark Crutcher, “The pro-life movement has never had images to illustrate the unimaginable brutality and ugliness of women being killed in America’s “Safe and Legal” abortion clinics. But those days are over. We are going to show America what it looks like when women climb onto a table in one of these places and end up on an autopsy table a few hours later.”

Deborah Cardamone on Life Talk

When Marla was killed having an abortion, her mother, Deborah, vowed that she would never let her daughter be forgotten. She approached Crutcher and asked him to help her show the public the risks women face when they submit to abortions.

Deborah said that when Marla died the funeral director asked if they should close the casket. Deborah responded that she wanted the casket open so people could see what abortion did to her daughter. This response is similar to what Emmett Till’s mom did after her 16 year-old black son was brutally killed because of his color. She refused to hide what was done to her son and had an open casket funeral.

Deborah’s reasons for releasing her daughter’s autopsy photos are detailed in a special Life Talk interview available here:

Crutcher says that producing the website was very difficult, “I don’t want anyone to think that this was comfortable for us. But there comes a point when we have to decide, are we going to stop this, or are we going to just talk about it? We need to hold this in front of the American people and we need to make the abortion industry explain this.

Remember Tonya WOmen Deserve Better

In addition to Marla, SafeandLegal.com also details the tragic death of Tonya Reaves who died following her legal abortion at Planned Parenthood.

When 24-year-old Tonya Reaves climbed onto a table at a Planned Parenthood facility in Chicago for a “safe and legal” abortion she never knew she would be closing her eyes for the final time. What is now known is that the Planned Parenthood abortionist ripped a hole in Ms. Reaves’ uterus and she began to hemorrhage. It is also known that the Planned Parenthood staff let Tonya lie there for over five hours before they sought emergency care for her. Of course, by then it was too late. She had lost approximately 30 percent of her body’s total blood volume, before she died. Her family is now suing Planned Parenthood.

The website also contains a list of hundreds of women killed by legal abortion.

Mark Crutcher2013

Crutcher concludes, “In recent years, the number of people who call themselves pro-life has grown dramatically and a significant factor in this has been the use of graphic photos of aborted babies. Those images have transformed the argument that abortion is the brutal execution of a living human being from a philosophy into an observable fact. And today, even abortion advocates rarely bother to deny the humanity of the unborn. Instead, they continue to hammer away that abortion has to be legal so it will be safe. Meanwhile, those of us in the pro-life movement point out that women are often severely injured or killed in these “safe and legal” abortions. The problem is that we’ve never had images to illustrate the unimaginable brutality and ugliness of these deaths. When people hear about women dying from abortion the image that comes to their minds is of scripted funerals with soft music playing in the background and the deceased lying peacefully “asleep” in a polished coffin. Because of that sanitized image of death, the public has no idea what it actually looks like when a young woman walks into an abortion clinic and ends up lying on an autopsy table. For the last 40 years, that reality has hidden one of the pro-choice community’s dirtiest little secrets. But now, due to the courage of just one grieving mom, that has changed. These are powerful new weapons unlike anything the pro-life movement has ever had before. For the first time in our history, we’re going to make it clear to Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry that the days are over when they can kill the Marla Cardamones of this world and then sweep their dead bodies under the rug.”
