Cosmo writer: Men pushed reluctant women’s movement to demand legal abortion

Author Sue Ellen Browder once aligned with 1960’s pro-abortion feminism. As a former writer for Cosmopolitan Magazine, she was also complicit in promoting the sexual revolution, which she now believes reduced women to ambitious sex objects. After years of research, Browder concluded that her thinking was being manipulated by a propaganda machine which would unite two movements — the feminist movement and the sexual revolution — to push abortion. She compiled her findings in the captivating book, “Subverted: How I Helped the Sexual Revolution Hijack the Women’s Movement.”

Browder, who was trained as investigative journalist at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, spoke in an interview with Live Action founder Lila Rose:

 

“People don’t remember how bad it was for women”

“In 1963, that was the relaunch of the women’s movement in the 20th Century,” Browder told Rose. “People don’t remember how bad it was for women.”

Women entering the workforce were not treated equally, Browder said. “Women were fired for being pregnant…. Women in some states could not serve on a jury. A married woman could not get credit in her own name…. Women couldn’t go to college in some places…. Very few women were doctors or lawyers. Women were shut out of the professions. So, this was a time when women were very concerned about a lot of injustices and they were all pulling together to try to correct those.”

Arriving on the scene at that time were two women: Helen Gurley Brown — who took over Cosmopolitan Magazine hoping to morph it into a “Playboy” for women — and feminist Betty Freidan, who wrote “The Feminine Mystique,” a book which transformed the way women were viewed. “… [E]verybody went crazy and said, ‘yes, we agree with this [book],’” Browder said.

“By the time I got out of college it was 1968. I thought I could set the world on fire,” she told Rose. But Browder herself was fired after she became pregnant. “I was like, ‘What? What?’ Well, this women’s movement was obviously for me.”

“So, we… had the baby… and then moved back into New York City. And one of the first jobs I got… was at Cosmopolitan Magazine…. I was glamour struck.”

“The whole sexual revolution was made up of lies”

Browder told Rose that she later attended a conference where former NARAL founder Bernard Nathanson, who had since become pro-life, was speaking. “And he told us about all the lies that they had told to sell abortion to the American people. And then… I realized that if [Alfred] Kinsey had lied, and if the abortionists had lied, and if we at Cosmo were lying, then the whole sexual revolution was made up of… all lies. Then, we sold it to the American people through more and more lies – and through the women’s movement… the sexual revolution was sold to the world.”

Browder notes that, because women had been subjected to injustices, they became prime targets for one particular master propagandist skilled in the manipulation of public opinion. His name was Larry Lader, a journalist by trade who became an ardent voice in the fight to legalize abortion. He had been Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s biographer and had known Betty Friedan for many years.

“Larry Lader co-founded NARAL with Bernard Nathanson,” Browder said. “Lader… graduated from Harvard University and was fairly independently wealthy. [H]e worked on Betty Friedan for years to try to convince her to insert abortion into her list of demands….”

Browder said that Lader “began to convince [Friedan] that [abortion] was something that women needed to be free.” Browder added that Friedan “was having problems on two fronts. She was losing control of the National Organization for Women and she was also trying to get her Bill of Rights passed through to Congress. She was creating a political Bill of Rights that would guide Congress for women….”

At a time when women were being fired for pregnancy, Lader convinced Friedan to add abortion to her feminist Bill of Rights “… so they can say to the businessmen, ‘don’t worry about it guys, she’s on the pill and if the pill fails she have an abortion. So, you’re fine – you can pass all these other rights….’”

Feminists eventually caved to the abortion lie, pushed by white, well-to-do men 

The call to legalize abortion was not coming from women but primarily white, well-to-do men who had embraced the Hugh Hefner-style sexual revolution. Cosmopolitan editor Helen Gurley Brown enabled this by painting a deceptive image of a “Cosmo Girl” who had free sex, no kids, and earned plenty of money — an image NOW’s founder, Betty Friedan, originally denounced. “[Friedan] was fighting for equal respect and dignity and education in the workforce,” noted Browder.

“Helen Gurley Brown would have loved to have been part of the women’s movement, but feminist Betty Friedan called Cosmo quite obscene and quite horrible and even at one point called for a boycott of the magazine. [Friedan] never mentioned abortion or contraception in her ‘Feminine Mystique’…. In fact, Friedan had been fired herself for being pregnant…. She did not believe that abortion was a woman’s ‘right’….”

But, as Browder details in “Subverted,” and as Live Action News will detail further, Friedan, under the influence of Lader, eventually bought into abortion. And, while pro-abortion feminists obsessed over abortion, pro-life feminists left NOW to concentrate on real injustices affecting women, splitting NOW’s membership.

How can the pro-life community help victims of sex trafficking?

pro-life, abuse, trafficking

One possible indicator, or red flag, of sex trafficked victims includes numerous abortions, pregnancies and miscarriages. Other red flags can include the frequent use of emergency contraception, as well as a teen being accompanied by older boyfriend or an adult that is not a family member. Therefore, medical staff must be vigilant to report suspicion of abuse. But there are also things that the general pro-life community can do to help. The pro-life message is one of human rights, compassion, and love for mother and child, and pro-life people on the front lines — outside abortion facilities, working at pregnancy centers, etc. — are ideally positioned to identify these victims.

Live Action’s new docuseries exposes how sex trafficking and abuse victims often go to Planned Parenthood for help — and Planned Parenthood simply returns them back to their dangerous situations. Live Action founder and president Lila Rose stated in a press release:

Despite Planned Parenthood’s public rhetoric as well as laws requiring it to report suspected abuse, its failure to report has been deliberate and widespread. Time and again, rather than reporting abuse to authorities, Planned Parenthood has repeatedly looked the other way and performed abortions on victims as young as 12 years old. These girls deserved advocacy but instead Planned Parenthood staff ignored their abuse and returned them to the waiting arms of their abusers.

Because of flagrant violations like these, the proposed Title X rule tightening on reporting abuse is absolutely necessary. Planned Parenthood has proven that its priority is selling abortions, not caring for the most vulnerable of girls. Planned Parenthood’s culture of cover-up must end, the cycle of abuse of innocent children must end, and Planned Parenthood’s half a billion dollars in annual federal funding must end. Taxpayers cannot be forced to subsidize these abuses of children.

Cindy Collins, a long time pro-life advocate who is educating the pro-life community about human trafficking, is the founder of SpeakHope.net and has served on Louisiana Governor’s Human Trafficking Commission. She has provided testimony for Louisiana legislation requiring human trafficking awareness signage to be placed inside abortion facilities. She also provided information and resources for help regarding the state’s informed consent literature for women seeking abortion.

In addition, Collins has participated in training and workshops on predatory relationships, human trafficking, and forced abortions. She has presented her findings both nationally and internationally at the National Right to Life Conference, Heartbeat International Conference, Texas Pregnancy Care Network, as well as the United Nations Conference on the Status of Women, Israel Be’ad Chaim (Pro-Life) Conference and Cherish Life Australia Conference. She currently serves as a global advisor for Operation Outcry and as a board advisor of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC), Reproductive Loss and Sexual Trauma Division.

Collins told Live Action News that she is post-abortive and has tragically experienced abortion several times. Later, she helped to found a pregnancy center in her home state of Louisiana where she ministered to abortion-minded women on a regular basis.

“Those abortions led me into a lot of destruction,” Collins said, adding that she came to understand that her destructive behavior leading to her abortion kept her in emotional captivity. The freedom and insights she learned in dealing with her past led to her compassion for the victims of human trafficking. “There but for the grace of God go I, that I could have been held captive because of the destruction in my life. This has given me awareness for what I do now,” she said.

After years of pro-life ministry, Collins said the Lord led her to women who were working in the commercial sex industry:

I was invited to go on a team to minister to strip clubs down town understanding that many years ago, I could have been one of them. After 30 years of working in the pro-life movement and abortion recovery, I asked the Lord why I was going there now. Then, after a few years, I began to realize that the single moms working in the clubs were hurting like I had been. Soon, I was having encounters with women in dressing rooms inside strip clubs and discovered that many had been forced to have abortions.

The Lord showed me there are captives that need help through pregnancy centers and the pro-life movement, but He also showed me that children held outside the womb through sex trafficking also deserve life, love, and to fulfill their destiny.”

Collins sees her focus as reaching women and children inside as well as outside the womb. As such,  she sees a real need for the pro-life community to become better educated to work to free victims caught up in the commercial sex trafficked industry, both physically as well as spiritually and emotionally.

“What the pro-life movement is missing,” Collins shared, “is first, how we are looking at the women forced to work in these areas? I began to discover that the pro-life community was looking at these women in the wrong way. Were we valuing these women and their babies the same as the college student who might come into our center?”

She added, “The pro-life movement has to get involved. We have to understand and change our mindsets, and see the victims who potentially are being forced to submit to abortion through new eyes. They’re being told if they don’t have that abortion their pimps will kill them. He threatens to kill their family or children.”

In her research on human trafficking, Collins discovered that women and children trapped in sex trafficking usually have some form of sexual abuse in their past. One study showed that 70 percent of women interviewed that were sex trafficked became pregnant and about 55 percent of these victims say they will be forced into an abortion during their captivity.

A 1999 report by the Center for the Study of Intelligence found that sex trafficked victims endure “threats of physical abuse against themselves and/or their families are also common in order to force cooperation. Traffickers also play upon the women’s fears of arrest and deportation. In additional cases, trafficking victims suffer extreme physical and mental abuse, including rape, imprisonment, forced abortions, and physical brutality.”

In 2002, according to a report by the New York Times, police raided a house, expecting to find an underground brothel. What they found instead was horrific. Inside were victims of sex trafficking between the ages of 14 and 17, all Mexican nationals without documentation. The girls were forced to live in squalid conditions, described by the paper as a “land-based equivalent of a 19th-century slave ship.” Police also uncovered a “stash of penicillin” along with abortion-inducing drugs.

One victim of sex trafficking told Facing Life Now TV that women and girls are also taken to abortion clinics by their pimps or by people working for the pimp. “Marlene,” who had become “trusted” by her pimp, told the interviewer that she was responsible for booking abortions when a woman became pregnant, saying, “The pimps and the traffickers would get fake I.D.’s for the girls and we would take them to have abortions.”

When asked if abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood would turn down the abortions for the girls, she replied, “Oh, no, absolutely not…. Honestly they had to know that these were teenagers; they were not adult women.”

Marlene said that participating in these abortions traumatized her. She recalled a 14-year-old sex trafficked victim who became pregnant and was being forced to have an abortion: “So, I had the whole house raided — she was rescued,” she said.

A study published by the Annals of Health Law in 2014, Health Consequences of Sex Trafficking, supports Marlene’s claims. Authors Laura Lederer and Christopher Wetzel interviewed several women victimized by sex trafficking and found that survivors had  “significant contact with clinical treatment facilities, most notably Planned Parenthood.”

As Live Action News previously reported, roughly two-thirds of survivors who specified a location for their abortions identified an abortion facility as the site of their abortions, indicating ongoing systemic problems inside the abortion industry. One survivor told the researchers, “I was under serious pressure from my pimps to abort the babies.” And one sex trafficking victim told researchers she was taken to Planned Parenthood because “Planned Parenthood didn’t ask any questions.”

Planned Parenthood doesn’t ask questions about sex trafficking victims

Tragically, one of the victims interviewed said she had as many as 17 forced abortions.

“There has to be laws that make it clear that these abortion facilities are required to report,” Collins said.

Study author Laura Lederer testified to lawmakers that 55 percent of the women she interviewed reported having at least one abortion, and about half of those said they had been coerced.

Sadly, sex trafficked victims, rather than abortion workers who failed to report the abuse, are often the ones facing prosecution. Last year, the Texas Tribune reported on a case in which “a pimp… had sold a 16-year-old girl for sex over two years. The girl suffered horrific abuse at his hands — she was raped, impregnated and forced to have an abortion. When she tried to run away, the pimp carved his initials into her forearm.” Tragically, rather than receiving treatment upon her eventual arrest at the age of 19, the victim was sent to prison.

“It’s a great example of the cyclical nature of trafficking and how devastating it is, and how if you do not intervene it will indeed continue, and just continue to breed itself both victims and defendants,” Kirsta Melton, who leads the Texas Attorney General’s Office’s sex-trafficking unit, told the Tribune.

Live Action News has documented the way that Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry fail to report child sexual abuse, often returning victims of abuse into the hands of the predators that force them into the abortion to begin with. Several of these tragic cases have been highlighted in the video below from Live Action’s Aiding Abusers project:

In 2011, Live Action investigators tested how Planned Parenthood would respond to sex trafficked victims by sending undercover actors posing as sex industry profiteers into their facilities.

Collins said that about the time God was leading her to become more involved in outreach to victims of trafficking, Live Action released its undercover investigation. The results of the investigation shocked her. In one instance, a Planned Parenthood staffer even coached the actors posing as sex traffickers on how to secure secret abortions, STD testing, and contraception for their underage female sex slaves, and how to make their whole operation “look as legit as possible.”

The good news is that, according to Collins, when a women becomes pregnant while being trafficked, it can trigger her to find the resolve to flee her trafficker in an attempt to give her child a better life. Collins has found that many times, trafficked victims are also lovingly placing born children with adoptive families. “That woman may not escape that lifestyle for herself, but when she has the baby, she gets the courage to escape because she doesn’t want that life for her child.”

Sex trafficking survivor Julia Walsh recently recounted her heart wrenching story to the Waco Tribune about how her pimp, David Ronald Mims, refused to allow her to seek medical care while pregnant. Four men trafficked Walsh for almost three years, often keeping her in the trunk of a car until they found an abandoned apartment to traffic her from. Walsh eventually escaped and ended up on the streets where she met Mims, who regularly beat her.

“When I was pregnant, I was still using drugs and kept using drugs at first,” she told the paper. “I stopped using the drugs, and at that point, I still had to work and make a quota. He said all that means is that the baby is his property, too. At that point, the safety of my child was pretty much my number one priority.”

Tragically, when she went into labor, Mims refused to take her to the hospital and her little girl was delivered stillborn. Soon after, Walsh and Mims were arrested, and Walsh was able to receive the help she needed from a caring Waco police detective and others dedicated to fight against human trafficking.

Cassie Hammett, executive director of the Shreveport-based nonprofit Purchased, which offers a one-year residential recovery program for women coming out of the sex industry, told the Shreveport Times that sex trafficked victims often do not use protection, therefore STD’s are rampant and victims may seek abortions later in pregnancy.

“The equation in their mind is, ‘I have to use my body to make money, and so I better just get rid of this problem or I won’t be able to do it for much longer,’” Hammett said.

Such was the case for Arien Pauls, who also escaped her trafficker, according to the Fresno Bee. Pauls “became pregnant with her trafficker’s baby [and] he forced her into an illegal, late-term abortion.”

For this reason, Collins notes that abortion becomes a deep trauma — “not only the abortion experience, but the deep feelings of regret because this is a life she never intended to live, and now it’s taken the life of herself and her child, a second victim,” Collins said.

Collins points out that the pro-life community is poised to help in this area because it is already largely organized, “we know how to help- rescue people and set them on their true destiny”:

I have a training that I do for communities, schools, and individuals. And I also have a training for those in the pro-life movement specifically. How to become aware, identify and help. How to connect with law enforcement, agencies and ministries not only on the rescuing side but the restoration side.

Sidewalk counselors need to be trained as well as pregnancy centers. These victims can be difficult to identify. A trafficker could appear to be a parent or friend. They might be escorted by an older boyfriend or older adult, even an older woman. If there is any question look at age difference, and if she looks beaten or drugged, call 911.

In addition, Collins said that law enforcement must be continually trained on human trafficking, “Police need to be made aware. They need to thoroughly investigate each suspected case. 55 percent of women trafficked said they were forced to have an abortion. 70 percent said they had become pregnant. We must encourage local law enforcement to have a new mind also.”

One of the ways Collins has worked to reach these victims in her state is to develop legislation mandating “Point of Rescue” pamphlets or signage be placed inside strip clubs, hotels and abortion facilities. These documents describe what human trafficking is and explain where a victim can go for help. According to the Shreveport Times, Louisiana lawmakers now require a “Point of Rescue” pamphlet to be available to girls seeking abortion. The program is overseen by the state’s Department of Health.

“The department has focused past efforts on another state law ensuring that every woman who seeks an abortion in the state of Louisiana receives robust information about human trafficking,” Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals spokeswoman Samantha Faulkner told the paper. “Abortion clinics are required to provide each clinic with a brochure.”

Women’s right to know and Point of Rescue pamphlet for abortion clinics

In addition to the pamphlet, girls seeking abortions in the state are required to be informed that they cannot be coerced or forced into abortion. “It is unlawful for any individual to coerce a minor or adult woman to undergo an abortion. Any physician who performs an abortion upon a woman without her informed consent may be liable to her for damages in a civil action at law,” the website reads in part. The booklet, which abortion-minded women can access, also gives accurate information about the development of the baby and what the abortion entails.

Collins said that she founded SpeakHope.net and SpeakHope media to provide outreach, advocacy, and restorative care to women and youth vulnerable for sexual exploitation, sex trafficking, abuse, and forced abortion. Through outreach and missions, she has become an advocate for women and children here in the US and abroad.

Abortion training: avoid saying “baby” use “fetus” or “pregnancy” instead

Posted in Abortion Counseling, Abortion Training, Planned Parenthood Counseling with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2016 by saynsumthn

A training manual on abortion tells doctors and clinicians to avoid using the word “baby” and suggests substituting “fetus” or “pregnancy instead.

Early Abortion Workbook

The Early Abortion Training Workbook published by Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) which is staffed by former Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation (NAF) employees, describes their training this way:

    “ANSIRH’s Early Abortion Training Workbook was developed for use in a clinical setting where an experienced trainer or provider is available to lead a discussion of its didactic context and exercises. It is intended to help clinicians learn to identify key elements of informed consent counseling, recognize major psychosocial issues of importance for women who seek abortions, understand the basic steps involved with first-trimester vacuum aspiration abortions and early medical abortion service provision, and identify common complications related to first-trimester abortion care.”

Pro-lifers often point out that abortion is a money-making industry selling abortions to vulnerable women in their most difficult time of need. It is true that abortion providers will claim that they only do abortions on women who want them, but it is also true that they have developed clever marketing skills that not only bring the girls in for the abortions, but facilitate the “closure of the sale” as well. This is illustrated well in the ANSIRH training manual below which instructs abortion providers how to respond to an ambivalent patient:

Approrpiate to feder

“In deciding how to proceed,” the training manual states, “it is appropriate to trust your own instincts. Some patients, who may be having difficulty accepting responsibility for their decision, recant in an effort to make the provider or agency “responsible.” In such a case, the provider must ask for a clear statement of the patient’s intent before proceeding. For example:

“I’m not sure if you are ready to go on with the procedure tofay.If you aren’t sure, we can postpone until you are more sure.Do you need some more time?”

Then, the all-knowing abortion provider is very much aware that the woman, who is agonizing over her decision will opt to go through the abortion. In fact, the training manual tells providers, “For many women, this last moment is what they need; when faced with the possibility of NOT going forward, the other option is less appealing and they know they want to proceed,” they write.

In this training manual, ANSIRH also instructs their abortion providers to be careful what words they use … or… for that matter don’t use.

Words to avoid when a woman seeks an abortion: BABY.

The manual suggests that it would be best for abortionists to use the term: FETUS or PREGNANCY:

ABortion Training fetus baby

However, if the abortion bound patient decides to use the word “baby” the manual suggests that it is most likely because the pregnant woman may be “feeling guilt or regret.” And, if the abortion patient wants to know what happened to their “baby” the manual tells those they train to respond like this, “I examine the pregnancy tissue to make sure that you are no longer pregnant.”

ABortion Training fetus baby 2

Then, if the patient asks if the abortion will “hurt the baby” trainees are advised to say, “At this point in the pregnancy, the nervous system is still in a very early stage of development. Most brain cells are not developed and there is no pain.”

It would appear that this kind of manipulative and inaccurate training is working. The use of the term “pregnancy” in place of the rightful term “baby” when describing or counseling for an abortion can be seen across a wide spectrum of abortion businesses.

And in a brochure published by the National Abortion Federation, the term “baby” is substituted for “pregnancy” as it “attached to the uterus.”

    “A medical abortion uses two medicines to end a pregnancy. The first one (either mifepristone or methotrexate) weakens the attachment of the pregnancy to the uterus.”

A pregnancy can attach to the uterus?

The Feminist Women’s Health Center abortion clinic chain tells women their D+C abortions are used to “remove the tiny pregnancy.”

    “If you are at least 6 weeks by ultrasound, you can choose to have a surgical abortion, in which the cervix is dilated and suction aspiration is used to remove the tiny pregnancy.”

The Philadelphia Women’s Center abortion clinic refers to the “baby” in a second trimester abortion as the removal of a “pregnancy” as well:

    When the dilation of your cervix is complete you will be taken to the operating room, and a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) will administer IV sedation. The surgery will begin when the physician inserts a speculum into your vagina in order to view your cervix. If necessary, the physician will then dilate (open) your cervix more by inserting thin, metal rods, one by one, into the opening of the cervix. These rods, also called dilators, gradually increase in width. The physician will then use surgical instruments and vacuum aspiration (suction) to remove your pregnancy. The surgery usually takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes. After your surgery, you will be monitored in our recovery room until you are medically cleared to go home, usually about 45 minutes.

The Houston Women’s abortion clinic also fails to use the term “baby” when it tells women they “remove the pregnancy from the uterus”

    “Most commonly known as vacuum aspiration, is performed after we give you oral (vicodin and valium) and IV medication (valium and stadol). A very small plastic tube about 1/10 of an inch is used to remove the pregnancy from the uterus with gentle vacuum. The way Dr.Rosenfeld performs a vacuum aspiration usually takes less than one minute with very little to no pain.”

Planned Parenthood used the term “remove the pregnancy” rather than “baby” in a pamphlet which describes an early surgical abortion:

In CLinic ABortions

    “When your cervix is stretched open enough, the contents of your uterus (womb) are taken out with suction. Suction is used by putting a small plastic tube into your uterus and connecting it to a hand-held or electric suction machine. Surgical tools may be put into the uterus through the opening in the cervix. The way it is done will depend on how long you’ve been pregnant. You may feel cramping during and after the abortion as your uterus gets smaller. Your doctor may also use a curette (a thin surgical tool) to remove the pregnancy. What has been removed will be looked at to help make sure the abortion is finished.”

An example of this kind of spin was described by a Planned Parenthood employee who claims she aborted “the Pregnancy” at Planned Parenthood. In a video message, Shawanna says Planned Parenthood gave her three options:

    I told them my situation – they gave me three options: Keeping the pregnancy, have an abortion or adoption. I chose abortion. It was the best option for me at the time…it was the best decision.”

Shawanna used by PP

Shawanna, who is promoted as a patient, even though she works for Planned Parenthood, claims that after she aborted “The Pregnancy” her life became better because she got to finish going to school and became a certified nurses assistant who went on to work for the abortion giant. On the Planned Parenthood promotional video, Shawanna adds that she got pregnant again and was really happy the second time around and this time she kept “The Pregnancy.” She emphasizes that her abortion was good and states that she could not have imagined what her life would have been like if she “kept the pregnancy back then.”

CPS pressuring child to have abortion after rape says pro-life rape victim advocate

Posted in Abortion and rape with tags , , , , , , , on September 10, 2015 by saynsumthn

The abortion debate in America always comes around to the so-called “hard cases” of rape, incest and life of the mother.

This blog post details one of those cases and one pro-life group says the unborn child’s life should be protected even if the rape victim is also a child.

Last month, 20-year-old Justin Roshud Smith was arrested on suspicion of rape and endangering the welfare of a minor.

Justin Smith 8706229_G

According to Wynne police Smith allegedly impregnated the 10-year-old daughter of his girlfriend and has been charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor.

But, according to a pro-life group out of Houston, the girl is being pressured to have an abortion and they are speaking out.

Juda MyersJuda Myers, founder of Choices4Life said she flew out to Arkansas hoping to meet with the mother of the child. She said the mother requested her help before the scheduled abortion on the 11th of this month.

As an advocate for women who have been raped and the rape-conceived Myers opposes abortion targeted at those who are victims of rape.

“I spoke with the girl’s mother,” Myers said, describing her as distraught.

The alleged rapist was the mother’s boyfriend and as a result she has had all her children taken from her.

Myers believes that the state’s Child Protective Services pressured the mother of the 10-year-old to sign papers giving permission to CPS have her unborn grandchild aborted.

    “This mother is clearly against abortion with seven children and currently 7 months pregnant. Her daughter is being pushed along in what seems to be a systematic agenda to 1. eliminate the rape conceived 2. push another black mother to kill her baby. In the first hours of our conversation, the mother of the 10-year-old said she didn’t want her daughter to have an abortion but the daughter wanted “a DNC.” What does a 10-year-old know about a D & C? “

Myers said she contacted the agency to let them know that Choices4Life had emotional support services that could help the family in making their decision, including speaking with an 11-year-old rape victim who had her baby recently.

    “I called Marva Walker of CPS Wynne, AR and tried to offer services to help this young girl. CHOICES4LIFE is a non profit specifically helping rape victims pregnant or raising those children. The organization has helped many females ages 10 to 42. Most recently a 10-year-old pregnant from rape who turned 11 before giving birth is doing fantastic.

    “What I received was what sounded like a recording “I’m not able to tell you if I’m working with _____(the girl’s name)because of confidentiality.” To which I replied, “Yes ma’am I understand that and you do not have to tell me because I already know. All I want to do is offer help to the girl and connect her with another 11-year-old who can help her. We have many others who have been through this. We offer emotional support as well as financial support.” Ms. Walker repeated her statement word for word to which I kindly repeated myself also. This continued for four times until the CPS worker said, “Ok give me your information.” She was cold and demonstrated no intentions of delivering the information to the girl.”

Myers said that when she first had contact with the girl’s mother, who is pregnant herself, she expressed a desire to save her grandchild. But, Myers reports, she seemed to have a change of heart texting her, “I know they are railroading me to keep my children I really need some help.”

Adding that she fears never getting her 7 children back if she didn’t sign the papers for the abortion, “I’m not about to make her birth a child that could possibly kill her trying to have (it) so it would help me keep my children,” Myers reported that the mother told her.

“It is extremely sad that a grandmother’s only “choice” is whether she give up her children or her grandbaby,” Myers said.

“She chose the grandbaby that she hasn’t seen and held and loved yet. It’s ironic that the mother of the 10-year-old is carrying a child for the same man that the 10-year-old is carrying. But one lives and the other is put to death.”

Myers believes that the only “option” being presented to the little girl is abortion.

    “She hasn’t been given any choice to talk to someone who was in exactly the same position – pregnant after rape. What would most 10-year-olds do scared and taken from their family? The 10-year-old is with strangers telling her their desires for her to abort. They tell her that DNA could be taken to prosecute the rapist. And who wouldn’t want the rapist punished? But what the little girl doesn’t know is that she doesn’t have to kill her baby to get DNA. Sounds like there really hasn’t been any kind of choice for this young girl. Have you ever talked to a 10 year old girl? They are easily influenced and do not know what questions to ask. She won’t know there are other choices besides abortion. And when she is grown she may feel as many others whose mothers did not protect them from abortion,” she said.

Myers said that all too often the child of the rapist is looked at with disdain even though they are also the child of the victim. Myers, who was conceived in rape herself, has several testimonies from rape victims who kept their babies and refused to have an abortion.

“Sadly an innocent baby in the womb of a 10-year-old will not be given the same privilege as a sexual predator. He will continue to live but the baby is sentenced to death without a trial, without a word spoken, without any dignity,” Myers said.

If found guilty of the rape charge, Smith could be sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in prison.

Monica Kelsey, who was also conceived in rape and speaks on behalf of women and children, has called for prayer for the victim, “please pray for this young girl as she needs an army of prayers right now to help pull her through this. If she has the abortion or not she is going to need all of us praying for her to save her life from a lifetime of pain!” she wrote on her Facebook page.

In March, a former Connecticut fire chief has pleaded guilty in Rockville Superior Court to having an ongoing sexual relationship with a 15 year-old and paying for her to have an abortion when she became pregnant.

In April of 2013, the girl told police, that 53-year-old Joseph Carilli impregnated her. She said that she had an abortion and that, for a while, Carilli helped her pay for it, but then stopped giving her money.

Jospeh Carilli

In 2013 The Courant reported that Carilli acknowledged having sex with the 15-year-old in the Coventry firehouse, the board of directors room, the firehouse attic, his house and the fire department substation on South Street.

“Carilli said that he knew it was wrong to have sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old but he felt that he had no other option,” according to the warrant.

Police said Carilli told them he was scared of “being exposed” by the girl and that she was “in complete control of their relationship because she is young, has nothing to lose, and he is married and has everything to lose.”

The girl told police that Carilli impregnated her and that she had an abortion. For a while, Carilli gave her money to help pay for the procedure.

The girl said “Carilli would drive her to the post office to get a money order and the bill would be paid in that manner,” according to the warrant. “She said that Carilli told her to do it that way so that his name was not on a check, and because they did not accept cash. She said that Carilli made a few payments of $25-$30 but he stopping paying and she stopped paying the bills.”

The girl also told police that Carilli asked her to send him naked pictures of herself.

Carilli has pleaded guilty to charges including sexual assault and tempering with a witness.

He’s set to be sentenced in Rockville Superior Court May 23.

According to Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics , who has documented the use of abortion to cover for child sexual predators, “Abortion is a safety net for sexually predatory and sexually irresponsible males.”

In 2002, Life Dynamics conducted an undercover investigation in which Life Dynamics called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across the nation. The results of this survey were appalling. Even though many of these clinics openly acknowledged to the caller that this situation was illegal and they were required to report it to the state, the overwhelming majority readily agreed to conceal this illegal activity. (Listen to actual audio taped conversations here)

“When we began to investigate we found it was even worse than we thought it was. Initially we thought perhaps the abortion clinics were only reporting half of the incidents, but instead we found that they were reporting hardly any of them,” Life Dynamics president Mark Crutcher said.

Life Dynamics, Inc. in conjunction with several personal injury attorneys around the country has begun a campaign to educate the public about the pedophile protection racket covered up inside abortion clinics.

The response to the campaign has been tremendous. In fact, many of the attorneys Life Dynamics contacted see the value in pursuing litigation against those who violate mandatory reporting laws.

Planned Parenthood’s obscene cartoon vid denies that pregnancy begins at fertilization

PP Vid How Pregbnancy Happens
Planned Parenthood has published a new VID to explain how a pregnancy happens, the only problem is that Planned Parenthood denies that pregnancy begins at fertilization, when life begins. This plays into their profitable coffers because they can push “emergency contraception” harder to girls if they “think” that they are not killing a human being until the egg implants into the uterus.

PP GSpot

From the VID:

It’s time for another episode of the G SPOT

You probably think pregnancy happens when seaman or pre-ejaculate gets into the vagina….
You might think that Pregnancy happens right after sex…Pregnancy doesn’t happen right away…it could take up to six days to even fertilize an egg and another six day to implant itself…She’s not pregnant yet, the sperm and the egg create a zygote..Pregnancy actually begins when the implanted pre-embryo starts releasing hormones that prevents menstruation.

Family LimitationPlanned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger even admitted in her book “Family Limitation” that Any attempt to interfere with the development of the fertilized ovum is called an abortion.

In Planned Parenthood’s 1951 Book- The Gift of Life:
The booklet tells readers If one of the male sperm meets and unites with an egg cell, a new life begins.

PP GOF Pg3PP GOL Pag 4

So, when does human life begin? According to Planned Parenthood, it begins at conception. So we have to wonder: If Planned Parenthood knew this in 1951, why are they the world’s largest abortion provider today?

Planned Parenthood 1952: “Abortion kills the life of a baby”

Planned-Parenthood-Pamphlet-Abortion-is-Killing-a-Baby (1)Planned-Parenthood-Pamphlet

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Following are some excerpts from the book: Conception, Birth and Contraception approved by Planned Parenthood and SIECUS four years before the legalization of abortion: (H/T Diane Dew)

“… at least one [sperm] will reach the egg, fertilize it, and conception will take place. A new life will begin.” (page 15)

“… the egg which, if fertilized, gives rise to a new life.” (page 3)

“From fertilization to delivery, mother and child are as one for approximately 266 days. At the end of the period the mother delivers the infant into the world …” (page 3)

“It is the female who carries the baby during the nine months of its prenatal life.” (page 17)

“However small it may be, the egg is about two thousand times as large as the sperm that must fertilize it. …it carries the food the growing embryo will use during the first few days of its life.” (page 26)

“… to grow within the mother.” (page 32)

“The inherited characteristics of the baby to be born … are determined by material within the egg and sperm … each mature egg contains genetic material carrying the inheritable characteristics of the mother … the child receives inherited characteristics from both parents.” (page 50)

“The placenta … transfers nourishment from the mother ….” (page 53)

“… ectopic pregnanc[ies] … are dangerous to the mother and provide no possibility of a live child.” (page 53)

“The growth of the baby within the uterus takes nine calendar months.” (page 57)

“The sex … could also be determined by examining under a microscope cells which are present in the amniotic fluid … however, the doctor would have to puncture the amniotic cavity. This procedure is not undertaken except under very unusual circumstances having to do with the baby’s health. So until the baby is delivered, no one knows whether it is a boy or a girl.” (page 61)

“… the bloodstreams of mother and fetus … never touch, and the blood in each remains separate. Oxygen and nutrients pass through the placenta, from the bloodstream of the mother to the fetus, and waste products from the fetus pass in the reverse direction into the bloodstream of the mother.” (page 64) [i.e., the fetus is not part of the mother’s body]

“… a doctor examining the mother can hear the fetal heartbeat … The mother can feel the movement … its arms and legs …” (page 65)

“… the doctor may perform an operation called a cesarean section and remove the baby …” (page 68)

“.. its head is well down in the pelvic area of the mother — the ideal position for it when the birth process begins.” (page 68)

“The new life that has been growing within the mother for approximately nine months is now ready to enter the world. The passage of the baby through the birth canal is called delivery, and the process by which this is accomplished by the mother is called labor… Occasionally, a baby is born before thirty-eight weeks … and the baby’s chance of survival depends upon its weight and state of development at birth. When it is time for delivery, the mother begins to experience uterine contractions…. felt by the mother in her back …” (page 72)

Pay Women not to Abort ?

What would you give to save a life? Laura Merriott, President of Save Unborn Life, is the March 2013 guest on Life Talk. After realizing that a large percentage of women aborting do so because of finances, Merriott began raising funds to help abortion minded women continue their pregnancies. In her interview with Mark Crutcher and his co-hosts, Merriott points out that Abolitionists purchased slaves in order to free them and Schindler’s finances were used to free the Jews in Nazi Germany. Currently: Russia, Japan, Australia, and Italy are offering a baby bonus to women to bear children. Get additional information at Merriott’s website: http://www.saveunbornlife.org
