Parents carry banner for son’s dying wish of abolishing abortion in Texas

The parents of a deceased teen are carrying on his legacy to see his dying wish of ending abortion come true. On August 26, 2018, Rusty and Kendra Thomas lost their beloved son Jeremiah Thomas at the age of sixteen, after his body succumbed to cancer.

This amazing young man spent his final days and hours on this earth pleading for the lives of the unborn. As a result of Jeremiah’s dying wish, the Governor of his home state of Texas, where the Roe v. Wade court case on abortion originated, made a promise to Jeremiah, “to outlaw abortion altogether in the State of Texas,” which has yet to come true.

Jeremiah’s wish to abolish abortion in Texas

Jeremiah’s passion for protecting babies whose lives were targeted for violent death due to the legalization of abortion grew in the months preceding his diagnosis. But, after Jeremiah learned that his own days were numbered, he doubled down on his fight to see abortion abolished and innocent lives protected.

A Facebook post shared by his father Rusty Thomas explains that, “Instead of going to Disney World or meeting a celebrity, Jeremiah asked to meet with Gov. Abbott to discuss a bill of abolition in Texas. Though Make a Wish could not make it happen, it happened anyway.”

His wish came true and on June 17, 2018 Jeremiah and the Texas Governor spoke.

On the call, Jeremiah told Governor Abbott:

“We just want you to treat abortion like an act of murder and it should be punished by law. For my wish, I just wanted to say that to you… I think we could rally with Texas, and we could end abortion here and now. Because, at least for me, this would make my wish complete before I pass.”

Governor Abbott replied, “Your wish is on the Republican Party platform positions, and it’s what we’re going to be pursuing this next legislative session.  And that is to outlaw abortion altogether in the State of Texas. And, so your wish is granted.”

In an interview with Live Action News shortly after the call, Jeremiah said, “My wish was to meet with Gov. Gregg Abbott and discuss abolition…. I was just trying to talk to a person in power to persuade him. 60 million babies have been murdered. One-third of my generation…. All I wanted was for abortion to be abolished and preborn babies to be given the same rights all humans deserve.”

For that “wish” Jeremiah was bullied online, but, he was not deterred. In fact, his response was to forgive.

After Governor Abbott made his promise, videos of it went viral, gaining coverage by Fox News, the Daily SignalLive Action, and many others.

But, tragically Jeremiah died just two months later, never seeing his wish come true.

Now, his family has taken up the banner.

“Every year, in the state of Texas fifty-five thousand preborn children are killed…We are calling on all Texans who love life to sign the petition urging Governor Abbott to make outlawing abortion an emergency item for Texas.”

“This is not something Jeremiah saw in his lifetime, this is something we can do in our lifetime,” his father Rusty Thomas stated.

The legislative session in which Governor Abbott promised Jeremiah he would be pursuing to outlaw abortion altogether in Texas began January 8, 2019.

So, at the request of Jeremiah’s parents, an online petition to invite others to join Jeremiah’s wish by urging Governor Abbott to keep his promise by making abolishing abortion an emergency item for the State legislature, has been hosted by Abolish Abortion Texas.

The family has requested that in addition to signing the Jeremiah’s Wish petition, supporters make a short video encouraging Governor Abbott of Texas keep his promise to Jeremiah and post it on social media inviting others to do the same.

School where professor attacked pro-life teen claims they were visited by “proselytizers hawking intolerance in the name of religious belief”

The California school that employs a professor accused of attacking a teen-aged pro-life demonstrator has issued an apology…sort of, according to Fox News.

In a long-winded 1,000-word letter that reads more like a diatribe than a mea culpa, University of California at Santa Barbara Vice Chancellor Michael Young eventually conceded that women’s studies professor Mireille Miller-Young should not have snatched a pro-life sign from 16-year-old Thrin Short, giving backhanded praise to the framers of the Constitution.

Miller Young

According to National Review, When the university finally opened up after several weeks of silence on the matter, the administration did not condemn the unnecessary and spiteful attack by a member of its faculty. Instead, it attacked the “anti-abortion crusaders” and “evangelical types” who came to campus “to provoke us, to taunt us and attempt to turn us against one another.”

Our Founding Fathers – all white men of privilege, some even slave owners – got it right when designing the First Amendment of the Constitution,” Young wrote in an open memo to the student body.

In a Memo to students and faculty from UC Santa Barbara, Vice Chancellor Michael D. Young writes, “Over the past several weeks, our campus has been visited by a number of outside groups and individuals coming here to promote an ideology, to promulgate particular beliefs (at times extreme beliefs), or simply to create discord that furthers a certain personal agenda. Some passionately believe in their causes, while others peddle hate and intolerance with less than noble aims.

Whatever the motives and goals, the presence of such people and groups on campus can be disruptive and has the potential to draw us into the kind of conflict that puts at risk the quality of exchange of ideas that is fundamental to the mission of our university. What is happening now is not new: evangelical types have been visiting UCSB and university campuses since time immemorial. What we see at UCSB today is simply the most recent generation of true believers, self proclaimed prophets, and provocateurs.

During the past few weeks, UCSB has been visited by various anti abortion crusaders. Some have been considerate and thoughtful in promoting their message; others have
openly displayed images that many in our community find distressing and offensive. We have also seen earnest and thoughtful religious missionaries, and we have seen
proselytizers hawking intolerance in the name of religious belief
.As a consequence of interactions with the more extreme of our visitors, students have expressed outrage, pain,embarrassment, fear, hurt, and feelings of harassment. Moreover, I have received requests that the campus prohibit the peddling of “fear,” “hate,” “intolerance,” and “discord” here at UCSB
.” Read rest here.

On March 22 – The Santa Barbara District Attorney filed charges of grand theft, battery, and vandalism against Professor Mireille Miller-Young for violence she committed against young pro-life activists who held a peaceful outreach on the UC Santa Barbara campus on March 4th.

March 27, 2014 the The radical pro-abortion professor at the University of California at Santa Barbara made headlines when she went berserk on a group of pro-life advocates on campus earlier this month.

The professor claimed that she set a good example when she attempted to incite students to violence and initiated the theft of a pro-life activist’s sign. We hope that the only example set by her actions is that crime will not be tolerated by the DA, nor the University of California. The prosecution should reach a resolution that deters anyone from committing these crimes again.

Catherine Short is the mother of 21-year-old Joan Short and 16-year-old Trin Short, two of the young women assaulted by the professor. She is also an attorney and Life Legal Defense Foundation Legal Director and issued a full statement about the case HERE.

Thrin Short was also interviewed on the pro-life TV show – Life Talk which can be viewed here:

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, Inc. and host of Life Talk was outraged.

Crutcher asked why parents would send their kids to a school with such poor judgment that they did not fire Miller-Young immediately, “What is wrong with the parents and the students who are going there …paying all this money to go to an institution that would have a woman like this on staff. Why wasn’t she fired? If I had a kid going there, first off I am going to call the school and say, you’re not getting another nickel from me as long as this woman’s on staff. Because, it indicates bad judgment on your part. You’re judgment is so poor that this woman can admit that she did this thing, and then come out and say, I had the right to do it? And you’re going to keep her on staff, and you’re going to let her try to mold young minds? Not with my money, you’re not. Why are students still going there and why are parents still paying for it? That’s the part I don’t understand,” Crutcher stated.

Crutcher is publicly calling for the professor to be fired.

Short told Life Talk that the professor injured her scratching her arms.

I would ask UC Santa Barbara, Vice Chancellor Michael D. Young just who was the INTOLERANT one here?
