These 15 women prove that being Black and pro-life is neither ‘rare’ nor ‘ignorant’

Michael Harriot, commentator for The Root,recently claimed that being a Black pro-life woman and seeking the protection of innocent Black babies in the womb is “rare.” But is it?

Harriott was writing in response to an interaction between Rep. Steve Cohen (D – Tenn.) and Star Parker, a pro-life Black woman, in which Cohen called Parker “ignorant” after she pointed out the devastation that abortion has wrought in the Black community.

Dem Congressman calls Black women Star Parker “ignorant”

“Since Roe v. Wade was legalized 20 million humans have been killed inside the womb of Black women. And then, on Halloween, Planned Parenthood tweets out that Black women are safest if they abort their child rather than bring it to term,” Parker said during a hearing on the Heartbeat Bill.

Parker also exposed the eugenic beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, a known eugenicist who once gave a speech before the Ku Klux Klan. She also compared the Dred Scott decision, in which the U.S. Supreme Court declared that Black slaves in America were not citizens, to that of Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the entire country (essentially declaring that preborn humans are not persons and have no standing as such under the law).

Watch the interaction below:

Shockingly, Michael Harriot, who is also Black, chose to criticize Parker for her comments rather than research her claims about Planned Parenthood’s eugenicist beginnings. Instead, Harriot discounted Parker and other Black pro-life women, claiming that they are “rare”:

Star Parker, founder of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education and a community activist, was asked to testify before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.

Hold up, I think I made a mistake in that previous paragraph. What I meant to type was: Star Parker was asked to testify before the House subcommittee because she is one of the rare black female Republican anti-abortion-rights activists. (No, I will not use the GOP marketing phrase “pro-life.” Who’s not for people living?)

Harriot then echoed Rep. Cohen’s derogatory remarks, saying, “People were shocked to hear him go after a black woman publicly like this, but here is the thing: She is kinda ignorant, though.” (Side note: Imagine for one moment what would happen if Parker were pro-choice and… oh, I don’t know… a white Republican male had called her “ignorant.” Media and social media — and likely Harriot himself — would explode with outrage.)

But Harriot’s claim about the rarity of pro-life Black females is simply wrong. The following Black pro-life women (in both the past and the present) are worth noting (and they weren’t all Republicans, Mr. Harriot):

1) Dr. Mildred Jefferson was the first Black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School and was co-founder of the National Right to Life Committee. She once stated:

I became a physician in order to help save lives. I am at once a physician, a citizen, and a woman, and I am not willing to stand aside and allow the concept of expendable human lives to turn this great land of ours into just another exclusive reservation where only the perfect, the privileged, and the planned have the right to live.

2) Fannie Lou Hamer was a civil rights activist who helped found the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. In 1964 she ran for Congress. Hamer was also a victim of eugenic sterilization, a program which Planned Parenthood’s founder (as well as those on her board) advocated.

Fannie Lou Hamer

Ethyl Payne quoted Hamer as calling abortion “black genocide,” writing in The Afro-American, “She was a delegate to the White House Conference on Food and Nutrition… there she spoke out strongly of abortion as a means  of genocide of blacks….”

Journalist Samuel Yette also noted Mrs. Hamer’s views in The Afro American – Apr 2, 1977, quoting her as saying, “It is still a society in which an injured man must show his ability to pay before getting hospital services, but his daughter or wife can be aborted or fed birth control pills, at public expense….” Yette then recounted how Hamer blasted conference organizers: “She responded with shock and outrage at the deception. “I didn’t come to talk about birth control,” she protested. “I came here to get some food to feed poor, hungry people. Where are they carrying on that kind of talk?”

A 1969 article published by the Free-Lance Star quotes Hamer as denouncing voluntary abortion as “legalized murder,” saying she “made it clear that she “regards it part of a comprehensive white man’s plot to exterminate the black population of the United States.”

Author Kay Mills quoted Hamer in her book as being vehemently against abortion. “Once Black women were bought as slaves because they were good breeders,” Hamer said. “Now they talk about birth control and abortion for blacks. If they’d been talking that way when my mother was bearing children, I wouldn’t be here now.”

Elaine Riddick

3) Elaine Riddick is a staunch pro-life advocate and vocal critic of Planned Parenthood. She was a victim of eugenic sterilization who led a successful crusade in North Carolina to gain reparations for the men and women (mostly Black) who were forcefully sterilized.

That NC eugenics program was supported by Margaret Sanger’s financier, Clarence Gamble, a director of Sanger’s American Birth Control League (which later changed its name to Planned Parenthood).

In 1947, Gamble called for the expansion of North Carolina’s state sterilization program, saying that for every feeble minded person sterilized, 40 more were polluting and degrading the bloodlines of future generation with their defective genes.

Research from North Carolina’s Winston-Salem Journal reveals a long history of abuses in that state’s sterilization program — abuses that Gamble consistently glossed over. According to the Journal, “Gamble wanted sterilizations to increase rather than decrease, and increase they did.”

Riddick testified before the North Carolina State Legislature about her experience, tearfully saying, “They cut me open like I was a hog.” She told lawmakers that her only crime was being poor, Black, and from a bad home environment. Riddick’s horrific story was recounted in the documentary Maafa21, which chronicles the history of eugenics and the founding of Planned Parenthood:

4) Dr. Alveda King is the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., and Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life:

5) LaVern Tolbert is a former Board member of Planned Parenthood who now opposes their agenda:

7) Day Gardner is president of the National Black Pro-Life Union:

8) Judge Cheryl Allen is a Superior Court judge for the state of Pennsylvania. She has said, “Most people tend to believe that Planned Parenthood is in the African American Community to help, but they are not there to help, they are there to make abortion more accessible to black people….” (Source: Interview on His Place TV)

Judge Cheryl Lynn Allen

9) Rep. Mia Love is the first Black Republican female elected to the U.S. Congress from the state of Utah:

10)Barbara Howard is the Florida State chairwoman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE). She has stated,.  “Recently, some black preachers finally came out not against abortion per se, but merely against the location of Planned Parenthood centers in black communities. It seems the murder of blacks is only a consideration for black preachers or other leaders when they are killed by white or Hispanic cops…. So who will stop the cold-blooded murder of millions of unborn black children?”

Barbara Howard

11) Rep. June Franklin (D-Iowa) is the only African American representative in the Iowa legislature, and said in 1971, “Proponents… have argued this bill is for blacks and the poor who want abortions and can’t afford one. This is the phoniest and most preposterous argument of all. Because I represent the inner-city where the majority of blacks and poor live and I challenge anyone here to show me a waiting line of either blacks or poor whites who are wanting an abortion.”

Rep. June Franklin (image Maafa21)

12) Dr Ashley Harrell of Black People Against Abortion:

13) Catherine Davis is a founding member of the National Black Prolife Coalition:

14) Dr. Freda M. Bush is an OBGYN and president of the Medical Institute for Sexual Health:

15) Obianuju Ekeocha, founder and president of Culture of Life Africa:

All the Black pro-life women from both political parties would make an exceedingly long list — and the truth is that the pro-abortion media makes little effort to highlight them.

Tragically, the real “ignorance” here is not found in those who denounce abortion’s impact on the Black community. It is found among members of the media who imply that Black pro-life women are “rare.” It just simply is not true.

Remembering abortion victims retrieved from trash dumpster

Posted in Aborted Baby Trash, Carole OpEd, OP-Ed with tags , , , , , , , on March 8, 2016 by saynsumthn

The number of abortions committed since it was legalized in 1973 is so astronomical that many people cannot begin to wrap their minds around it? As abortion tragically weaves its murderous roots deep into American society, it is easy to become calloused. That was apparent at another point in history when Rev. Gilbert Haven looked back on slavery and wrote, “We are so familiar with the word Slavery, that its real scope and character do not smite the eye with true horror.” These words ring true today in a society which tolerates the evil of abortion.

Those of us who have been in the pro-life battle for many years can sometimes get so overwhelmed at the numbers of abortions that we need to be reminded that every abortion takes the life of one, very precious baby. That reality was never more true to me, than the day I personally found aborted babies. Strange as it is, there are only a handful of pro-life people who have experienced this first hand. Interestingly, it was my interest in the Nazi Holocaust which motivated me to search for these precious children. As I would watch documentaries of the Holocaust, I remember asking myself, “Who took that picture?” As I contemplated the horror of that time in history, I knew that had those images never been released, the world would never have known the true evil that took place.

And, with that in mind, I prayed to the Lord that if aborted babies were being thrown in the trash, that He would lead me to where they were so I could have the honor to offer the babies the dignity of my tears along with a humane burial. So, a friend and I began to do what we called back then “Dumpster Diving” to see if we could find any babies that were being thrown away and we did. The process of uncovering these children was daunting. We pulled their broken bodies from the trash over a period of weeks and meticulously removed each identifiable human part from the mass of bloody gauze that held their tiny body inside each container.

ABorted babies in container

I will never forget the very first gauze sac I opened and what I saw. There inside the gauze sac was a fully formed arm. I wasn’t shocked because I knew what abortion did. I think I felt overwhelmed almost in denial that what I was documenting was part of the largest genocide in American history. I knew, that one day, people would look back on this and ask why we allowed this to take place on our shore.

Aborted baby arm 2

As you can imagine, we continued to uncover pieces of babies, victims of early, suction abortion. Those precious lives which began in the safety of their mother’s womb were brutally killed and then laid to rest inside a trash dumpster. The callousness of that kind of brutality haunted me for a long long time. I remember thinking to myself, “I wonder if each mom knows that their baby was thrown in the garbage by this abortion clinic.”

IMG_2931

But, aborted victims from early abortions were not all we found. In the bottom of the bag were pieces of a baby we estimated to be in the second trimester. That child’s foot was one of only a few parts thrown away by the clinic in that garbage bag. We never found the rest of that child.

Aborted baby foot 2

It takes love to do what we do to rescue these kids and I admire each person who dedicates themselves to see them protected. It is easy to let the years discourage us to give up – and every time I feel that way, I take out these pictures of what I call, “my babies” and I recommit myself to never quit. Each and every little person we defend is a unique individual, not a statistic or an “issue” and we can never forget that God knows each one by name.

To encourage myself in this battle for life, I often look to others who faced injustice in their time and glean strength from their sacrifice. One such story of bravery took place in 1942 when Hans Scholl, a medical student at the University of Munich, along with his sister Sophie, and other brave young people founded the “White Rose” movement. This movement was one of the few German groups that spoke out against Nazi genocidal policies.

Sophie and her brother along with others in the “White Rose” movement committed themselves to speaking out about the evil of their day, writing this to their fellow students, “We will not be silent. We are your bad conscience. The White Rose will not leave you in peace!”

In an amazing amount of wisdom for such a young woman, Sophie described those she felt did the most damage in their response in their failure to stand against the Nazi Holocaust:

The real damage is done by those millions who want to ‘survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes.Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves—or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature.”

Does this sound like the average American where abortion is concerned? For their courage, Sophie and Hans Scholl and another member of their White Rose group, Christoph Probst, were executed on Feb. 22, 1943.

img178-e1421635752956

On the day we held a funeral for the aborted babies we retrieved from the trash dumpster, we encouraged every man, woman, and child to come forward and to lay a rose on top of the tiny baby casket which held their broken remains. It did not take long before my eyes filled with tears. In what I would describe as one of the most emotional events I have ever been part of, I began to weep uncontrollably like I have never cried before. It was at this time, that I felt the full impact of what I had witnessed and as long as we keep showing the truth of abortion, others will feel it as well.

7 facts the average American doesn’t know about legalized abortion

Posted in Abortion History, Abortion Vintage, Roe with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 24, 2016 by saynsumthn

As we enter another year of legalized abortion on demand, many Americans are unaware of many facts regarding the history of abortion in the United States. To correct some of these misnomers, we have listed seven facts that the average American does not know about legal abortion.

Keep abortion legal

1. Abortion was legal prior to 1973 in certain states

In 1967, Colorado became the first state in the US to legalize abortion. The bill was introduced by then Representative Richard D. Lamm. In 1968, Georgia legalized abortion. Previously, in 1966, Mississippi had legalized the procedure for cases of rape. Then during the debate to liberalize abortion in New York in 1970, the issue of unsafe abortions swayed one representative to change his vote on the floor, opening the door to abortion on demand in that state. Which brings me to the next fact.

2. Few women died from abortion the year prior to it’s legalization:

cdc-illegal-abortion-deaths

Despite the repeated lie that thousands or millions of women died from illegal abortion, there was then as now no law requiring the deaths of women from abortion to be reported. Stats from the Center for Disease Control show that, the year prior to Roe (1972) 66 women were reportedly killed from abortion. Out of those 39 were illegal, 24 were from legal abortion and 2 were unknown. However, in the year abortion was legalized (1973), the CDC documents that more women died from legal abortion than from illegal abortions.

3. Roe in the Supreme Court case never had an abortion:

Norma McCorvey ABC News Screen

The 1973 abortion case was brought to the Supreme Court on the basis that Norma McCorvey, the Roe in the case was raped and needed an abortion. The fact is that she was never raped and never wanted an abortion. In fact, Norma is also now pro-life and is seeking to overturn the infamous decision.

4. The language for Roe was written years before the case was decided

In 1962 the American Law Institute (ALI), comprised of judges, lawyers, and law professors who suggest recommendations for revisions to state laws proposed liberal abortion language as part of the “model penal code.” As a result, between the years 1962 and 1973, nineteen states reformed their abortion laws and enacted all or part of the institute’s reform model. Hawaii, Alaska, New York, and Washington removed all limitations for performing an abortion. Portions of the language read very close to what the Justices eventually enacted and included the “exceptions” language that opened the door for abortion on demand:

“[a] licensed physician is justified in terminating a pregnancy if he believes there is a substantial risk
(1) that continuation of the pregnancy would gravely impair the physical and mental health of the mother or
(2) that the child would be born with grave physical or mental defect, or
(3) that the pregnancy resulted from rape, incest, or other felonious intercourse.”

5. Roe V. Wade allowed for unrestricted abortions up to viability (24 weeks) with states deciding thereafter (viability measures have now drastically improved)

According to Paul Pauker who summarized Roe for Live Action previously, in Roe the Supreme Court adopted a trimester framework for state regulation of abortion. The Court held: in the first trimester of pregnancy, states may not regulate abortion; in the second trimester, states may regulate abortion only in ways related to protecting the mother’s health; and in the third trimester, states may “regulate, and even proscribe, abortion except where necessary, in appropriate medical judgment, for the preservation of the life or health of the mother.”

6. Doe v. Bolton, the companion case to Roe, opened the door for abortion on demand by allowing the “health of the mother” exception” to be defined however the doctor chose.

Pauker states that the language that seemed to allow a third trimester ban on abortion was deceptive, because in Doe, the Court gave “health” such a broad definition that states have been prevented from successfully imposing bans on abortion, including late-term abortions.

Sandra Cano img22

Testimony from Sandra Cano the Former Doe of Doe v. Bolton, before the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Senate Judiciary Committee June 23, 2005 showed that, like the Roe case, she never wanted an abortion:

“The Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court decision bears my name. I am Sandra Cano, the former ”Doe” of Doe v. Bolton. Doe v. Bolton is the companion case to Roe v. Wade. Using my name and life, Doe v. Bolton falsely created the health exception that led to abortion on demand and partial birth abortion. How it got there is still pretty much a mystery to me. I only sought legal assistance to get a divorce from my husband and to get my children from foster care. I was very vulnerable: poor and pregnant with my fourth child, but abortion never crossed my mind. Although it apparently was utmost in the mind of the attorney from whom I sought help.

7. Today, based on many lies, tragically abortions are legal in all stages of pregnancy

Late term abortion Daily Signal 2015

The U.S. is one of only seven developed countries in which late-term abortions after 20 weeks (five months) are allowed, according to a 2015 report from the Charlotte Lozier Institute. The above graphic published by the Daily Signal reveals just how many states allow abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

Revolutionary abortion rights group Stop Patriarchy to protest pro-life March for Life in DC

Posted in Stop Patriarchy with tags , , , , , , , , on January 20, 2016 by saynsumthn

As we approach the 43th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, pro-lifers plan to assemble for the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. But, as the infamous date which legalized abortion on demand in all 50 states and in every month of pregnancy approaches, abortion activists are gearing up for a confrontation with pro-lifers.

Stop Patriarchy March for Life FB

You’ve seen them before, that revolutionary self-proclaimed Communist pro-abortion group, Stop Patriarchy laying on the ground in blood soaked clothes to draw attention to women they claim died from illegal abortion. Just as they did in 2015, they are planning to protest the March for Life in Washington, D. C.

Stop Patriarchy March for Life

In 2015, as pro-lifers gathered in D.C. Stop Patriarchy failed to stop the March for Life using their radical tactics. They then called for a Ferguson type revolution against Black pro-lifers, who organized a rally in Oakland, California. But, they failed in their agenda there as well. In addition, an abortion rights protester with the Stop Patriarchy protest was heard using a racial slur in referring Dr. Alveda King, the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King while she prayed in D.C.

Stop Patriarchy now plans to try again by confronting what they call the “abortion rights emergency” to “defeat the war on women.” According to the group’s leaders, they will be at the 2016 March for Life at the same time that pro-lifers plan to be in front of the Supreme Court. The radical group also plans to protest the Walk for Life in San Francisco, California on January 23th.

To gear up for their BIG CONFRONTATION, and because Catholic students generally attend the March for Life, members of Stop Patriarchy recently protested outside a New York City Catholic High School, calling abortion an “awesome amazing thing that saved women’s lives.” The abortion rights group pretends to care for women despite the fact that they never mention the women maimed and killed from legal abortion or those whose rapes are covered-up by the abortion industry.

Stop Patriarchy at Catholic School

In December, the group also mimicked pro-lifers in conducting an overpass demonstration at the University of Columbia where they hung a banner that read “Abortion Providers are Heroes.”

STop Patriarchy COlumbia

Sunsara Taylor, Stop Patriarchy’s leader is very concerned about the fact that, “Abortion clinics have been forced to close because of medically unnecessary fascist anti-women laws.” Taylor is influenced by Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, who wrote: “Unbelievable as it may seem, in the 21st century there are still people—including people in positions of power and authority—who are determined to force women to bear children, regardless of the situation, the feelings, and the better judgment of those women themselves.”

Sunsara Taylor

Sunsara Taylor

Taylor tells women that she believes abortion “kills a potential life” but she claims quite incorrectly, that abortion does not kill babies. Calling abortion a “form of enslavement” Sunsara Taylor tells her sympathizers that, “The only moral question about abortion is are you going to force women to have children against their will.” Taylor and her radical group believe very strongly that change can only come from “Revolution.” In a recent interview, the Stop Patriarchy leader made this frightening statement:

Sunsara Taylor Stop Patriarchy

“By revolution I don’t mean a bunch of protests or political upheaval. I am not talking about replacing who is in power within the same basic setup. I am talking about overturning and putting an end to capitalism-imperialism, to its armies and its courts, its unjust laws and murderous police, and bringing into being a new, revolutionary state power—a socialist state in transition to a communist world…We need a revolution…”

Taylor is reacting to the fact that the majority of Americans are now more pro-life than ever before since the legalization of abortion. Her words and actions are ones of desperation:

“The future of women is being fought out and it’s going to be decided. I know the emergency has been building for years, but things like this don’t stay two-sided forever. One side or the other is going to win, and the scales are tipping the wrong way. It’s not a time to be on the sidelines. It’s not a time to be demoralized. There is a tremendous potential to wake up millions and reverse this whole direction. Which future we get is up to each of us.”

As the battle between life and death plays out inside abortion and Planned Parenthood clinics across this nation, the toxic belief that innocent preborn children can be targeted for death is now spilling out into the streets. As rank-in-file Americans watch this play out they will clearly see a stark difference between advocates of life and those of death. And, it should make for another interesting year at the March for Life.

Former Planned Parenthood prez responds to 1973 legalized abortion ruling in vintage footage

Posted in Abortion History, Guttmacher with tags , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2016 by saynsumthn

A news report which aired just following the infamous 1973 Roe V. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion on demand shows us that from its beginning, Planned Parenthood saw abortion as positive for women despite the harm it does to their bodies and the fact that it takes the life of the preborn baby in the womb.

Guttmacher president Planned Parenthood Roe v Wade legal abortion

Alan F. Guttmacher, MD, served as Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) president from 1962–1974. Journalist George Herman’s CBS News Report (below) which was unearthed by Issues for Life, shows Alan Guttmacher, as head of Planned Parenthood, responding to the ruling:

“I think that to raise the dignity of woman and give her freedom of choice in this area is an extraordinary event. I think that Jan 22, 1973 will be a historic day.”

Liberating is an interesting term to use given the fact that the one time leader of Planned Parenthood who was also a Vice President for the American Eugenics Society, said this just years earlier at a 1967 forum at Harvard Law School:

    “… I would abort mothers already carrying three or more children…I would abort women who desire abortion who are drug addicts or severe alcoholics…I would abort women with sub-normal mentality incapable of providing satisfactory parental care…”(Source; “Abortion: The Issues”, Dr. Alan Guttmacher – President, Planned Parenthood, December 4, 1967, Harvard Law School Forum)

Speaking at the Harvard Law School Forum, a 1967 article in the Harvard Crimson quoted Alan Guttmacher as stating that a larger percentage of abortions performed prior to it’s legalization were from “reputable physicians” something that was downplayed as advocates pushed legal abortion as safer than illegal abortion.

“Seventy per cent of the illegal abortions in the country are performed by reputable physicians, each thinking himself a knight in white armor.”

At the same event, Guttmacher asked for liberalization of present abortion laws, but not for outright repeal, stating that, “To allow abortion on demand would relegate man to the status of the bull.” Guttmacher later said that, “abortion should be a back-up procedure for failed or failure-to-use effective contraception. It must never be the primary method of birth control.” (Source: AMA Congress on Environmental Health, May 4-5, 1970 speech by Alan F. Guttmacher, Page 63.)

Interestingly, the Planned Parenthood president made this statement in 1970, “We look forward to the time when our clinics can be closed, when the government can fund enough money to serve the poor and research new birth control methods.”

In a sobering warning, George Herman ended the CBS report with these words, “If the experience of New York State is any guide, America will eventually have one abortion for every two births.

As we enter another year of legalized abortion, we look forward to the day we will see the closure of Planned Parenthood and all abortion clinics as we work for the protection of the preborn child in the womb.

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.

Juda Myers

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!

Juda and her mother 239235_n

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.

Juda Myers rape abortion baby

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.”

Dont destroy rape conceived choices for life 197536150_n

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.

Miss1966RapeException500H

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.

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.
