In May, mother’s and children of rape conception along with supporters will gather at the Mississippi State Capitol to recognize 50 years of legal abortion in the state which began Mother’s Day 1966. The Freedom March Life Wins event, which takes place May 6th is being organized by Juda Myers founder of Choices4Life an organization which supports females who are pregnant after rape and those who are raising the children.

Myers told Live Action Action News that two years ago she heard God tell her to look up the law that legalized abortion in the state of Mississippi. “I looked it up and discovered the law was passed May 8, 1966 [Mother’s Day]. So, the Lord told me to go read the text.” Myers said she stumbled upon a photo image of the law published by another group who opposes abortion. She discovered that Mississippi was the first state to amended its law to permit abortions in cases of rape. “I felt like someone stabbed me in the heart,” Myers said.

Myers is outspoken against abortion on demand, but she takes a strong stand against rape exceptions because, as she puts it she is one of the rape conceived. At the age of 46, Myers discovered that she was conceived in rape. Two years later she met her birth mother who tearfully recounted how she was gang raped as a young woman and became pregnant with Myers. When the doctors told her mother that they would “take care of it” Myers said that her mother told her she responded by telling the doctors:

    ” You won’t take care of “it” – “it” is MY baby.”

Myers discovered that her birth mother lovingly placed her for adoption after feeling pressured to have the abortion. Myers was born on Valentine’s Day 1957 and her mom told her when they met that Myers was the best thing that had ever happened in her life. After her mom passed, Myers was told by her close friends that her mother celebrated her birth every Valentine’s Day and vowed that they would celebrate together again, which they finally did.

Myers said she is holding the Freedom March Life Wins event a week before Mother’s Day, not just for herself but for the mother’s who are treated with disrespect like her mother was. Choices4Life reaches out to the rape conceived as well as those who are victims of rape. The stories they tell to Myers has compelled her to be an activist. And Myers, is passionate about her message on abortion for rape: NO EXCEPTIONS!

To Myers and those she works with and represents, abortion for rape is nothing more than genocide against an entire group of people from every race, culture and gender. She points out that when you research the history of abortion in America you will find that model abortion laws originated in the 1950’s with the American Law Institute (ALI), an organization of American lawyers whose mission was the reform of American law. They released the first draft of their Model Penal Code to liberalize abortion on May 21, 1959. Although Colorado, California and North Carolina became the first states to adopt the full language of the ALI model penal code, Mississippi was the first state to allow for the rape exception to abortion.

Myers points out that people generally refer to children conceived in rape as the “lowest of the low.” In fact, not that long ago, a pastor referred to the children of rape as a “demon seed.” Myers said that every time she hears about a “rape exception” she gets angered because she knows that those so-called exceptions represent precious preborn children. To Myers, people like her are being targeted for death because of someone else’s crime. And, although Myers loves and works within the pro-life movement she says that they are not without criticism for support of such exceptions.

    “The pro-life community is willing to use us as a sacrificial negotiating tool, for what they consider to be the greater good.”

Myers passionately believes that children conceived in rape are equally as valuable as any other preborn child and should be vigorously protected along with their mothers. Myers believes that because rape was the reason abortion was legalized to begin with, ending rape exceptions can actually end all abortions. She said that Mississippi was the first state to use rape to liberalize their abortion laws but that tactic was also used by Sarah Weddington when she argued the Roe vs. Wade case before the US Supreme Court. The case, which originated in Texas was based on a lie that Norma McCorvey, the Roe in Roe vs. Wade, was raped. McCorvey later recanted her involvement in the case which opened up legal abortion in all 50 states, calling the premise that she was raped a lie.

    “It started with rape and it will end with rape. When the rape conceived are valued everyone will have equal value in the room.”

Myers said that The Freedom March Life Wins event will honor life conceived in rape. She plans to hold a “Heroes Welcome Reception” on May 5th at the Downtown Marriott in Jackson. There Myers will honor the moms who gave life to their children following a tragic rape. “People who attend are welcome to talk to these moms and hear their stories face to face,” she said.

The day following the reception, Myers said they will hold a 9:30 Press Conference inside the state Capital. Then around noon, the rally will kick off with an Honor for Life Award Ceremony where mothers who chose life after rape from around the country will be flown in to be honored. After that, the march, which Myers said will be prayerful, will commence. Myers said that people who are interested in joining her in Jackson, Mississippi can get information about the event at their website.

    We march for Freedom! We march for Love! We march for life! Mothers and children of rape conception will show the world that Love Wins when Life Wins!

Pro-life group fights to end stigma of rape conception

Posted in Abortion and rape, Abortion History with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 15, 2015 by saynsumthn

A pro-life group is working to end the stigma of rape conception by organizing a march this spring in one of the first states that legalized abortion. It was 2003 when Juda Myers learned from a social worker that she was conceived in rape. Juda, who was adopted, discovered the brutal truth while looking for her birth mother. The shocking details about the woman who carried her in the womb and how she was gang raped set the stage for Juda’s mission to advocate on behalf of the rape conceived.

The social worker’s attitude conveyed centuries of condemnation for the rape conceived,” Juda who contemplated suicide after learning the truth told Live Action News. “I was falling into a deep black abyss that brought me to the brink of a breakdown,” she said. Juda said her commitment to God kept her from doing the unthinkable, and recounted how a friend who knew nothing of the situation reminded her that God knew her before she was conceived!

In 2005, Juda met her birth mom who was in her 70’s at the time, “I walked into the nursing home stood at the desk and was about to ask for Ann when I heard my name called from behind me. I turned to see eyes of crystal blue not unlike my own. I knew it was her. Holding a picture of me when I was only 3 months old at the time of my adoption.”

Juda has told her story a number of times pointing out that those who allow abortion exceptions in cases of rape are really saying that she should have never been born. She is passionate about the lives of every preborn child in the womb and said that hearing other moms with similar stories to her mother’s experience made her realize that no one was helping moms like them. That revelation inspired Juda to found the non-profit organization Choices4Life.

The mission of helping these mothers and speaking for what many describe as a so-called “small percentages of preborn children” has not been an easy one. Juda has been the target of abusive vitriol from abortion advocates when she posts the stories of young rape victims who choose to carry their babies to term. The so-called advocates of free choice seem to draw a line in the sand if the pregnant female is a young rape victim.

But, the prejudice against the rape conceived extends well beyond abortion advocates and even reaches into the walls of religious institutions. In fact, abortion exceptions for cases of rape were sadly written into main stream denominational resolutions before Justice Harry Blackmun wrote the Roe V. Wade decision, legalizing abortion on demand. In truth, those pro-abortion resolutions helped lay the foundation for the tragic SCOTUS decision.

Since then, church leaders inside some of these denominations have apologized for their positions and recanted the resolutions. But, the bias against the rape conceived remains ongoing. In 2013, a pastor referred to children conceived in rape as a “demon seed.” His words shocked the pro-life community and prompted the mother of a child conceived in rape to write a powerful response which read in part:

    “For too long, the rape conceived and their mothers have been targets of hate speech. The assumption is that no woman who was REALLY raped would want to carry such a baby to term. That is a lie. Using derogatory language to the woman about her child often coerces her into making a decision that puts her at risk mentally, emotionally, and physically. She may consent to an abortion in order to prove that she was actually raped or out of fear that her child will be the object of continued prejudice after birth.”

Choices4Life works tirelessly to educate society that children conceived in rape are not the criminals and have done nothing wrong. “To condemn a human for the crime of another is not justice,” Juda often points out. But rape is the cornerstone of abortion and was the lie that brought the case to the Supreme Court in 1973. It is the “necessary evil” that continues to keep abortion legal today. Juda says it is time for the pro-life community to rally around the victims of rape and not give the perception that they are expendable simply because they may be few in numbers.

Juda and her Choices4Life organization contend that if we destroy this leg of abortion deception we may very well end abortion in America. To chip away at the foundation of Roe, Choices4Life is organizing the FREEDOM MARCH #LIFEWINS event next May in Mississippi. According to the event website, the first abortion law was passed in Mississippi on May 8, 1966 and it was for cases of rape and incest. Ironically, this year, May 8th happens to fall on Mother’s Day 2016.

In addition to the march, Choices4Life is organizing what they call a “hero’s welcome” reception to “these amazing mothers who saved the life of their children conceived in rape.” The hope is that listening to the stories of the brave women who rejected the lie that a child they created is worthless simply because of the crime of their fathers, will transform those who attend.

LifeWins Abortion march

In our day tolerance is shouted on every street corner. It’s time to end the stigma of rape conception and rally around these heroic mothers who fight for the life of their baby conceived in rape. Mothers and children are not guilty of any crime and don’t deserve to be treated as criminals,” Juda writes in the Freedom March Life Wins press release.

CHOICES4LIFE helps pregnant rape and incest victims with relocation assistance, they have subsidized rent, paid utility and medical bills and offered housing in private homes for mothers in need. The non profit has reached out to victims of all races, religious and sexual orientation ranging in ages from 10 to 42 years of age. Juda has dedicated her work to her birth mother whom she calls “a Hero.” Juda lost her Hero a few years ago but is grateful God allowed them to find each other. She tells those who support Choices4Life and women she reaches out to, “Be a hero.

“A hero is defined as saving a life,”
she says.

Abortion not a pathway to healing for rape victims says Live Action president

Posted in Abortion and rape, Lila Rose with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 6, 2015 by saynsumthn

On a recent Hannity program, Live Action president Lila Rose pointed out to his guest that “Abortion is not a pathway to healing” for a rape victim.

Lila ROse Hannity abortion rape

As the 2016 election amps up abortion is once again making headlines. The debate is being fueled by damming undercover video showing Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation doctors openly discussing how they advocate the harvesting of aborted baby parts.

This was the background for a debate on Fox recently where the Hannity program, invited radio talk show host Leslie Marshall and Live Action president, Lila Rose to discuss the most recent tapes. At one point on the show, Rose calls Marshall’s statement that although the abortion procedure is gruesome she would not go as far as to “judge somebody else’s decision” a “cop out.”

“We should be judging these decisions,” Rose state emphatically.

Rose then goes after the Obama Administration for not investigating Planned Parenthood for what she calls “apparent illegal activity on tape:”

    “People across the country are expressing their outrage on both sides of the political spectrum. So that’s why it is a shame that our Department of Justice right now is not doing a thorough investigation like many states are in order to ultimately lead into prosecution…where the crimes are taking place and convict these top level abortionists of selling body parts of committing illegal late term abortions…”

Later in the show, Hannity shifts gears to ask his guests their thoughts on a clip from The View where Whoopi Goldberg along with hosts Joy Behar, Cosby show child-star Raven-Symone and Michelle Collins criticized Ben Carson’s views on abortion after the 2016 presidential candidate told Meet the Press, “If people can come up with a reasonable explanation of why they would like to kill a baby, I’ll listen.”

On the clip you hear Behar’s response to Carson’s statement,“What can you say to that, you know? It’s pathetic.”

Post-abortive Whoopi Goldberg then added, “Sir, no disrespect, truly no disrespect, but it’s not your call. You don’t decide. You don’t decide, you don’t decide for anybody’s family here what they are going through and what they need.”

After playing the clip, Hannity defined his position on abortion this way, “I take the position that it is rape, incest and mother’s life,” Hannity states.

Lila Rose and Lesli Hannity rape abortion

Abortion defender Leslie Marshall pointed out that Carson did not share Hannity’s exceptions asking, “This is a man who doesn’t agree with you with regards to rape and incest, Sean. How do we tell a child that’s been raped by the stepfather…that she can’t make that choice even though it’s legal now?”

Rose then apologetically weighed in:

“Why should a child who’s conceived in rape be given the death penalty for the crimes of his or her father?” Rose asks.

“I think we can do better for women who are victims of sexual abuse and trauma to say that abortion is somehow a pathway to healing. Abortion is not a pathway to healing its another violent act. And that’s why we need to be holding Planned Parenthood accountable for theses violent acts and the selling of baby body parts. And the ladies of The View by the way do not speak for American women. American women are largely against many kinds of abortion and that’s where we stand.” Rose states.

Rose is absolutely correct and women who are rape conceived would agree. Organizations like Choices4Life and Savethe1 have emerged across the nation to give a face to the children people like Marshall and Hannity say are expendable, the rape conceived.

Freedom March Life Wins rape abortion

In fact, next spring masses of rape conceived people plan to March in Mississippi, 50 years after the state allowed rape in cases of abortion. The Freedom March Life Wins event is being hosted by Choices4Life on Friday May 6th, 2016 at Jackson, MS. State Capital.

Event organizers say the goal is to show the world that, “love wins even after tragedy.”
