Toni Braxton: abortion made me sad way too long

In an interview with Toni Braxton the singer/actress talked briefly to Insider about her abortion, telling them the abortion made her sad and she had to forgive herself for having it.

Insider Toni Braxton abortion

The seven-time Grammy winner was speaking with Insider about the Lifetime movie she produced about her own life, “Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart,” when she was asked about the biggest thing she had to forgive herself for.

Her response was as follows:

    “I had to forgive myself for the abortion. Here it is years later and I had to forgive myself for that moment. And, it stunned me and it almost corrupt my energy and made it – I’m not going to say less positive- it just made it sad way too long.”

The abortion lobby likes to try and convince their constituents that women do not regret abortion. Sadly, the longer women buy into this lie, the longer their pain lingers. Women who have had abortions and are now pro-life will tell you that as Braxton admits, there is a pain associated with the loss of a child through abortion.

Tragically, in her memoir “Unbreak My Heart Braxton implies that she had the abortion in part because the pregnancy was inconvenient.

Braxton BookAs was previously reported on Live Action News, Braxton suffered from great guilt after her abortion and years later when her son was diagnosed with autism her guilt intensified.

She writes:

    “I thought it was because of the abortion, God was punishing me.”

    “I have sometimes wondered whether God was punishing me for the abortion I had years ago by allowing my son to have autism. Or by giving me so many health issues.”

Live Action News writer, Christina Marie Bennett addressed the issue of abortion regret when she wrote this in a previous piece:

“In reality, we know abortion isn’t just a emotionally painless, all around feel good decision. If that was the case, post abortion groups like Rachel’s Vineyard, Silent No More Awareness, and Forgiven & Set Free (all of which you can find online) wouldn’t exist.”

Post abortive pro-life activist Michele Herzog has been outspoken about what women who have abortions really feel, “Women know that there is a child growing inside a womb, the after-effects of abortion are truly destroying and devastating our society.

Years after her abortion, Braxton now describes herself as on her Facebook page as “Mother First!”

Inside New Mexico Reproductive Health abortion clinic

In an effort to give the citizens of New Mexico a real look into the state’s abortion industry a pro-life group has put together years of shocking research and presented it to state lawmakers. Life Ministries NM, founded by Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, compiled the information into a 45 minute video which debuted at the State Capital in Santa Fe to New Mexico legislators with the hope that principled politicians will sponsor and pass uncompromising pro-life legislation. New Mexico is one of a few places in the world which allows unrestricted abortions after 24 weeks.

According to Tara Shaver, Senior Policy Advisor for Life Ministries the group of approximately 100 pro-lifers filled the rotunda at the State Capitol January 26th just days after the anniversary of the infamous Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion on demand. Life Ministries NM said the video included footage from Live Action’s investigations as well as reports from Operation Rescue and undercover phone calls compiled by local activists.

Shaver said that she had previously attempted to show lawmakers footage of numerous emergency 911 calls to NM abortion facilities but her efforts were quickly shut down by the 2015 committee chairman. Pro-life State Senator Craig Brandt who’s bill requiring abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges was tabled that same year joined Shaver and Fr. Imbarrato in their presentation.

Life Ministries NM said that after inviting several lawmakers to view the full 45 minute footage many were seen at the video’s unveiling. The pro-life said they have plans to make the full investigative footage public. The first of the 3 part series, focuses on Albuquerque’s late term abortion facility, Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO). According to Life Ministries NM, SWO is called a “Reproductive Health Center” but they claim that the clinic doesn’t offer services other than abortions. “They don’t do well women exams, STD testing or even have the ability to detect a potentially life threatening ectopic pregnancy,” Shaver said.

“SWO is also caught showing how professional their health services are to women in footage obtained by Live Action when they send late term abortion patients to local hotels,” she added and then asked, “Does healthcare really consist of instructing women to unlock their hotel door until the abortionist arrives and in the meantime push your dead baby into the toilet?”

Watch part one below:

According to Life Ministries NM, “New Mexico is currently one of 17 states that has medicaid funded abortions using state tax dollars. Part 2 delves into tax funding of abortions in New Mexico and the shocking revelation of how much Late-Term abortions cost the taxpayers…$8,000-$16,000 the price for a baby’s life!”

Pro-lifers respond to angry abortion defenders trying to disrupt rallies on 43rd anniversary of Roe V Wade

Posted in Femen, March for Life, New Wave Feminists, Pro-choice mocking, pro-choice violence, Stop Patriarchy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 28, 2016 by saynsumthn

Pro-lifers on both coasts were greeted with angry abortion rights protesters at several events across the country. Each time pro-lifers not only outnumbered their abortion opposition but they displayed the difference between life and death by responding with love.

In D.C., the self-proclaimed radical communist pro-abortion group Stop Patriarchy had threatened to disrupt the March for Life and sure enough…they tried…unsuccessfully. With their faux die-ins and bloody garb they ran the streets of D. C. chanting the overused rant “Pro-life your name’s a lie you don’t care if women die” while pro-lifers responded, “We are the pro-life generation!

Stop-Patriarchy-Die-in

The group considered an outcast by most main stream abortion rights groups, mocked pro-lifers claiming that preborn children were not human beings. They uploaded a ridiculous song where they claimed, “There is nooo God, no Heaven and no hell…” and sang, “a baby’s not a baby till it comes out.

Really?

While the March for Life was happening, I was sent a Facebook message of a photo showing Stop Patriarchy’s founder next to a feminist pro-life friend of mine and I was a little surprised. The picture (below) showed my friend Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa, founder of New Wave Feminists (left) standing alongside Sunsara Taylor founder of Stop Patriarchy (right) at the March for Life.

I immediately contacted Destiny and I spoke to her about the two group’s colliding at the pro-life march.

She told Saynsumthn that New Wave Feminists along with Students for Life arrived in front of the Supreme Court about 20 minutes before the rest of the marchers. That is when they confronted Stop Patriarchy already stationed at the Supreme Court as they were last year to try and stop the march. But, according to Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa marchers always stop there anyway. Destiny then details what occurred next:

We were just smiling and laughing and we had a lot of joy and it seemed to make them angry,” she said.

    “At the end of the day we know they are hurting. It breaks my heart. Women do not make the decision to have an abortion because it empowers them but out of fear, panic, and coercion.”

The pro-life feminist leader said that she felt a lot of common ground with Stop Patriarchy, “We are also against Porn and the sexual exploitation of women and we actually agree with Stop Patriarchy on this. When we agreed with them and repeated some of their chants with them, I think it caught them off guard.”

Destiny said that the confrontation between the groups of students and women was not what the media typically sees:

    “Rather than there being Priests and men, there women and students at the front of the line when Stop Patriarchy tried to confront the marchers. The media wants to make this narrative that its all about men dominating women and we messed that up. At the Supreme Court we were able to hijack that narrative – this transcends women’s rights and its about human rights. Finally women from both sides are having a dialogue.”

As Destiny and I spoke about the confrontation you could sense the compassion New Wave Feminists had for the abortion supporters, “We saw pain. We saw regret. We saw real sadness like most of us have never felt… and it manifested as anger,” Destiny said.

After the confrontation, largest pro-life student group Students for Life posed some interesting questions to the small pro-abortion group on their blog asking them the following:

  • Why are you wearing white when you are bleeding? That’s like rule #1, dark pants on those dark days.
  • How come the men are also bleeding? Is this the same form of biology that tells you that fetuses aren’t babies?
  • How come you were screaming at us for hating young women…when we are young women? #awk
  • We must misunderstand the word “tolerance”, because shoving people and screaming derogatory slurs doesn’t seem very tolerant to us.

While New Wave Feminists and Students for Life verbally addressed Stop Patriarchy’s rants, other pro-life groups were kneeling in prayer.

Jacob Hoback, a student from Oho ran into the radical abortion supporters outside the Supreme Court and documented their reaction tweeting, “The difference between those who support genocide and those who support love #LoveVSHate

Meanwhile in Texas, Daryl Rodriguez President at Love of Truth Ministries told Live Action News that the Revolutionaries made an appearance at the Texas rally for life in Austin. He reported that Stop Patriarchy showed up with a very small number of protesters in comparison to the numbers of pro-lifers who attended.

In California, a handful of abortion radicals showed up at two pro-life Walks where pro-lifers made up of many young people and minorities outnumbered their opposition several times over.

At the Walk for Life in San Francisco, where Students for Life also had a huge presence pro-lifers were interrupted by a few bare breasted abortion supporters. This photo (below) was uploaded to Twitter by Students for Life and shows them getting arrested.

They call themselves FEMEN and were protesting a speech by Center for Medical Progress founder David DaLeiden
who caught Planned Parenthood on undercover video haggling over the bodies of the babies they aborted.

FEMEN described themselves as an, “international women’s movement of brave topless female activists painted with the slogans and crowned with flowers. FEMEN is the special force of feminism, its spearhead militant unit, a modern incarnation of fearless and free Amazons. FEMEN’s tactics of protest is Sextremism.”

The topless women screamed, “Fry fake liar!” over and over again until police took them away!

Abortion radicals from Stop Patriarchy also made their debut at the SF Walk for Life and Students for Life tweeted this image depicting their hate-filled attitude:

In Oakland, Walter Hoye founder of Issues 4 Life reports that their group of African American pro-lifers at the Walk for Life West Coast were targeted by abortion revolutionaries for the second year in a row. But, he reports that while the group chanted “Black Lives Matter” ignoring the disproportionate way abortion targets the Black community, “this time the opposition didn’t have a single Black person with them, so their Black Lives Matter chants rang hallow.”

Last year, Stop Patriarchy disrupted the Black pro-life event when they pushed their way in front of the speakers. But this year, things were much different:

“This time Oakland Police Department (OPD) surrounded our stage protecting our speakers, marched with us and kept the [abortion] protesters away from us as we marched through the middle of downtown Oakland, so I want to publicly thank them.”

The Rec. Clenard Childress described the development of the preborn child while abortion supporters chanted. “You dare come out here holding a sign supporting that mutilation, and you call it a civil right, you don’t know what a civil right is.” he said to the abortion revolutionaries.

Adding, “We are pro-women…Abortionists have killed more women, have mutilated more women then anything on this earth. How dare you say you stand for women…Let me say this, we love you, but you’re not right!

Rev. Hoye reports that despite the protesters best efforts, pro-lifers got their message of “life” to the community of color across.

When FAKE DOCUMENTS save lives: CMP pro-life leader indicted as Planned Parenthood walks

Posted in Center for Medical Progress with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 26, 2016 by saynsumthn

David Daleiden Planned Parenthood Center for Medical Progress

The Houston Chronicle has reported that rather than indicting a Houston Planned Parenthood for illegally selling aborted baby parts, a grand jury instead indicted Center for Medical Progress undercover journalists behind the allegations.

The Harris County grand jury indicted David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt on charges of tampering with a governmental record, after they allegedly created a fake I.D. in their undercover sting. The charge is a second-degree felony with a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison. It also charged Daleiden, with the same misdemeanor he had alleged – the purchase or sale of human organs, presumably because he had offered to buy in an attempt to provoke Planned Parenthood employees into saying they would sell.

The decision has shocked many prompting the public to ask how Planned Parenthood could be cleared and the undercover journalists, who did what other journalists have done, are being indicted.

If you believe the unborn child in the womb is human, then all you need do is look to other times in history when life was cheapened and those who protected it were called criminals.

And, since the issue here is FAKE DOCUMENTS – we can see that in times past other “criminals” resorted to using fake papers to save lives – below is a small snippet:

Nazi fake docs jews

According to the United States Holocaust Museum:

    For Jews to pass as “Aryans,” it was essential to have false identity papers, which were often gained through contacts with the anti-Nazi resistance. Using forged or acquired papers, such as a birth or baptismal certificate, Jews sometimes could obtain legitimate documents under an assumed name from the authorities. These ruses posed great risks to the bearer since the Germans and collaborating police forces closely examined identity documents in their frequent searches for Jews, resistance members, and individuals evading conscript labor.

EXAMPLES:

Adolfo Kaminsky started forging documents after escaping deportation to a Nazi death camp. The Frenchman went on to become one of the world’s best forgers, creating documents that saved the lives of Jews, spies and freedom fighters. But even his daughter knew nothing about the real man behind the fake documents…Kaminsky was a forger and counterfeiter for purely humanitarian reasons. During World War II, he produced amazingly authentic-looking blank passports that saved many Jews from certain death. Later, he provided left-wing underground organizations with stacks of fake identifications papers. His family was kept completely in the dark about these activities. (Source: Fighting Nazis with Fakes: The Hidden Life of the Humanitarian Forger, By Nora Reinhardt, Spiegel)

It was ordinary German people who fought to help persecuted Jews during the war. Out of Christian charity, friendship, love, or because they did not agree with the politics of the National Socialists. They provided food and supplies, forged documents and hiding places. They saved Jews from deportation trains or even from concentration camps. Such as the caretaker who helped to alleviate the suffering of an elderly man in a Jewish retirement home. The married couple from Frankfurt who hid a young man in their attic who had fled from the Majdanek concentration camp. The priest who acted as an escape agent. The police officer who tampered with registration papers so that it was possible for a number of Jews to survive in the city of Frankfurt. (Source)

Thanks to the bravery of a Catholic family, a Jewish teenager in Poland obtained false identification papers during World War II. Posting as a Catholic, she worked several years in a posh hotel in Germany – surrounded by Nazi officers. Sabina Schwartz Zimering was 16 when she and her family were rounded up by Nazis in 1939 and forced into a ghetto in her hometown in Poland. Worse was coming, and the family knew it. “We’ve got to do something,” the girl pleaded with her mother after three years in the ghetto. “I’m 19. I don’t want to die.” Her mother – once dignified; by then starving, scared and depressed – said nothing could be done. “What will happen to others will happen to us,” she said flatly. But later she suggested that her daughter turn to a Catholic friend for help. Maybe Danka Justnya would give Sabina her identification papers, then pretend she had lost them and ask authorities for a replacement passport. It was a daring move for Sabina’s family, and it put the Catholic family in tremendous jeopardy. Yet the Catholic friends came through for them. They provided false identities – not only for her sister and mother. (Not for the little brother, though. It would be useless. The Nazis routinely checked males for circumcisions. Rarely was a European non-Jew circumcised in that time.) Before the war, Sabina’s family was photographed on a street of their town in Poland. Her father, Bernard Schwartz, and mother, Teofila, were with their two daughters, Helka, left, and Sabina, right. Their little brother had not been born. Hours before the Gestapo rushed into town to round up the Jews and send them to their deaths, Sabina and her sister escaped. For two years, they posed as Polish Catholics in Germany.

The workers were “hired” to help the Nazis construct a wall along the Atlantic coast of Europe, but the men never laid a brick or even showed up at the work site. Dutch architect Jaap Penraat, who gave the men the bogus jobs, also gave them their lives. It was 1942, and Jews faced death in concentration camps if they remained in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands. So Penraat forged work permits and traveling papers, disguised young Jewish men as workers, then escorted them by train to France. From there the French Underground took them to safe houses in Gibraltar or Portugal and on to Britain. By the time World War II ended, Penraat had made that dangerous journey 20 times and saved 406 Jews from death. Decades later, he was honored by the Dutch government and in 1997 by Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum in Israel. Penraat died June 25 of esophageal cancer at his home in Catskill, N.Y. He was 88.

In his 2006 book, “Among the Righteous,” Robert Satloff, director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, uncovered stories of Arabs who saved Jews during the Holocaust, and included a chapter on the Grand Mosque. Dalil Boubakeur, the current rector, confirmed to him that some Jews — up to 100 perhaps — were given Muslim identity papers by the mosque, without specifying a number. Mr. Boubakeur said individual Muslims brought Jews they knew to the mosque for help, and the chief imam, not Benghabrit, was the man responsible. (SOURCE: Heroic Tale of Holocaust, With a Twist By ELAINE SCIOLINO – New York Times )

Gino Bartali was part of a secret Italian resistance movement which helped hide the country’s Jews during the Nazi invasion of 1943. Using the handlebars on his bike to hide counterfeit identity papers, Bartali would ride to Jews in hiding and deliver their exit visas which allowed them to escape transportation to the death camps — he is credited with saving the lives of 800 people…It was not just the rescued who were grateful to Bartali, those who were involved in creating the counterfeit papers in Assisi also took courage from the cyclist’s fearlessness. Worked in the counterfeiting business, Trento Brizi explained how Bartali’s influence gave him courage at a time where the Nazis began to get suspicious. In the book, Road to Valor, Brizi said: “The idea of taking part in an organization that could boast of a champion like Gino Bartali among its ranks, filled me with such pride that my fear took a back seat.” According to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem, 7,680 out of 44,500 Italian Jews were killed by the Nazis…While Bartali rarely spoke of his actions before he passed away in 2000, his son, Andrea, attended the ceremony and met survivors, who had been helped by his father’s actions. (SOURCE: Gino Bartali: The man who helped save Italy’s Jews By James Masters, CNN )

I am sure there are many more of these kind of stories, but you get my point.

According to historian Martin Gilbert, approximately 800, 000 Jews escaped or found refuge during the Holocaust, less than one seventh the number of Jews murdered. However, for those who did survive, documents played a key role. Not surprisingly, many survivors have kept their old passports, letters and forged certificates as a testament to the means by which they eluded Hitler’s Final Solution.

And finally,for those who do not know: A Planned Parenthood X-board member actually works for Harris County DA’s office read here. This is NOT justice!

New Mexico needs late-term Abortion bill with NO exceptions

New Mexico needs a Late-Term Abortion Bill with NO exceptions for rape, incest, or health.

Video: Why New Mexico Needs A Late-Term Abortion Bill With NO Exceptions

By Bud Shaver, Executive Director of Protest ABQ

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato explains why New Mexico needs a Late-Term Abortion Bill with NO exceptions for rape, incest, or health.

Fr. Stephen Imbarrato with Priests for Life and founder of several pro-life ministries in New Mexico including: Life Ministries NM, Protest ABQ, and Project Defending Life released the following statement:

“I am very excited about the plan laid out by the [Senate-NM] to get a late term abortion ban passed in New Mexico. It is my hope that it is a bill that has no exceptions. I made it clear last year and again this year to the sponsors of the bill that I cannot support a bill with exceptions. Rape, incest, and health of the mother exceptions are not tolerable in pro life legislation. It is important that our Catholic leadership insist that our Catholic legislators support a late term ban with no exceptions. I recently submitted a ban bill to appropriate parties without exceptions that is law in 20 states. Let us unite around a late term ban with no exceptions.”

Father Stephen is a priest with the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, ordained 10 years as a late life vocation. Fr Stephen has been given permission to do full-time national pro-life ministry and is currently a member of the Pastoral Staff of Priests for Life. Fr Stephen is the founder of several pro-life ministries including St Gerard’s CPC in Connecticut and Project Defending Life also Protest ABQ in New Mexico.
