Fetal Surgery on Live Human Babies

December 16, 2014 | Author:

From Lifenews.comfetalsurgery3

If a Fetus is Just a “Clump of Cells” Explain These Unborn Babies Getting Surgery in the Womb.

The first open fetal surgery – to correct a dangerously advanced urinary tract infection – was performed in 1981. Over thirty years ago, Harrison and Adzick, at least, knew that they were not operating on some non-sentient clump of cells. These are babies, with the sort of medical problems that affect the rest of us, needing care as we all do.

Yet pro-abortion activists and groups still get away with the canard that babies “become human” only once they’re born. Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards claimed that her own children were not alive until she delivered them – both from the womb and, presumably, from a gruesome death, thank goodness. NARAL rails that “a zygote is not a baby.” RH Reality check takes great semantic pains to obfuscate the issue.

Facts On Hormonal Contraception You Probably Don’t Want To Hear

December 16, 2014 | Author:

Birth-Control-pf-300x225Whether you are for NFP or yielding the womb completely to the Lord, here are some facts about hormonal contraception worth keeping on your resource list for discussing with those who are on the fence.

I’m just going to go ahead and let you know that this article is going to probably anger a lot of people. But I am a truth teller, and sometimes truth hurts. And as pro-lifers, this is information that we simply can’t ignore…no matter how much it affects our current lifestyle.

This is the first of a three-part piece on hormonal contraception. I hope you will read all three parts and share this factual information with people who may not know these truths.

The pro-life mantra has always been “Life Begins at Conception.” But do we really believe that? Do we really believe that life begins at that amazing moment of conception? Or do we actually believe that it begins at implantation? You may think that is a silly question. ‘Of COURSE pro-lifers believe that life begins at conception! Hello?! We have been saying that for years!’

Fashion Design – Intelligent Design

December 15, 2014 | Author:

As she walks in the room, you pause your discussion, every attribute of her unique character diverting your attention. There is no particular point of emphasis in the picture she presents, though she is a purposeful arrangement of colors, contours, and textures. None of it is self-referential, but rather an introduction which piques your interest in what seems to be a vast and thriving world, of which she is an important and integral part. Her clothing speaks of intelligence; a maturity that exceeds her youth. (more…)

A Biblical Solution to False Rape Charges

December 11, 2014 | Author:

Brian Banks falsely accused of rape at age 17 spent 6 years in prison before being exonerated.

Brian Banks falsely accused of rape at age 17 spent 6 years in prison before being exonerated.

There has been a great deal of attention given to reports of rape. Rolling Stone magazine reported on an alleged “brutal gang rape of a woman named Jackie during a party at a University of Virginia fraternity house.”

Included in the story was that the University failed “to respond to this alleged assault – and the school’s troubling history of indifference to many other instances of alleged sexual assaults. The story generated worldwide headlines and much soul-searching at UVA. University president Teresa Sullivan promised a full investigation and also to examine the way the school investigates sexual assault allegations.”

After some investigation, it’s been learned that “there now appear to be discrepancies in Jackie’s account. The fraternity has issued a formal statement denying the assault and asserting that there was no ‘date function or formal event’ on the night in question.”

Raped, pregnant, and told to abort – My husband and I did this instead

December 9, 2014 | Author:

Back on the ship, I told the doctors an abbreviated version of my story, which resulted in me being quarantined. Suicide watch? In danger of a psychotic break that will have me running naked across the shuffleboard courts? Who knows. What I know is that I spent the next week listening to a team of very well-meaning doctors and nurses console me with how “easy” it would be to “take care of it” – to kill the child. To start over. Easy?

There were a lot of things discussed over scratchy, tearful transatlantic phone calls home that week, but the possibility of “taking care of it” never came off my lips. Or my husband’s.  When I told him I was pregnant, he said with his voice calm and steady, “Okay.  Okay . . . all right . . . this is all right.” I asked him, “What do you MEAN this is all right?” “I mean we can do this. We’ll get through this. It’ll be okay.”  And, “I love babies. We’re going to have another baby. Sweetheart, this is a gift. This is something wonderful from something terrible. We can DO this.” And I began to feel the stirrings of joy for the new life in my womb, blossoming under my heart. That new love that would grow so fierce it overwhelmed any trepidation or angst. And my husband was right.  We could do it.

The Ambiguous Legacy of The Pill

December 3, 2014 | Author:

By Jennifer Roback Morse at Mercatornet

I am in the process of writing a book which argues that the Sexual Revolution has been a rich person’s hobby horse from the beginning. The rich and powerful like the idea of separating sex from child-bearing. While this idea is sometimes wrapped up in a disguise of helping woman and the poor, the fact remains that the rich and powerful pioneered and implemented these ideas, quite often at the expense of women and the poor.

So I wondered, when I picked up a book, The Birth of the Pill: How Four Crusaders Reinvented Sex and Launched a Revolution, celebrating four key people behind the development of the Pill, whether I would have to revise my thesis.

I am sorry to say that not a single line in this book contradicts my thesis.

What’s a Social Engineer to Do When Parents Get in the Way?

December 3, 2014 | Author:

220px-Quarterback_PrincessFeminists have been crossing barriers for some time now. We all know that. They forced their way on to all-male sports teams. They consistently promoted sexual license (read perversion) without consequence. More demoralization and deregulation only seems fitting this sadistic course they are on and here we have it in Minnesota with the forced acceptance of transgender students on government school sports teams. Praise God for parents who maintain a moral compass.

This Country Banned Abortion and Now…

“Outlaw abortion and abortion won’t stop. Women will just do it illegally and women will die!”

Or so the argument goes… But facts are pesky things, and they show that the opposite is true in Chile.

According to new research from the MELISA Institute, since, not only has maternal health improved but the number of women seeking illegal abortion has plummeted!

Since Chile banned abortion in 1989, the number of maternal deaths decreased from 41.3 to 12.7 per 100,000 women (69.2% reduction). That puts Chile in second place for the lowest maternal mortality rate in the Americas (that’s right, even better than the United States).

It’s Here! “Queen of the Home” Ebook Launch, Sale, and Huge Giveaway Package!

November 28, 2014 | Author:

It’s here!  Queen of the Home is now available as an ebook! Queen of the Home was originally published in hardcover in 2011 but is currently out of print. We are hoping to release a new hardcover edition next year, but in the meantime we are delighted to make this slightly updated and revised ebook version available!

QOTH

Do you need some encouragement in your roles as wife and mother? This powerful collection of essays, poetry and quotes will renew your vision, refresh your spirit and remind you of the might and worth of your calling. Contributors include Jennie Chancey, June Fuentes, Bambi Moore, Kelly Crawford, Nancy Campbell, Stacy McDonald, and  more!

In past generations, the role of wife and mother was viewed as a sacred calling. The committed homemaker was seen as strong, capable, intelligent, and irreplaceable. She was regarded not only as a crucial part of the home, but as a foundational bulwark of society. She was considered worthy of great honor, appreciation, and respect. Though in recent years feminism has sought to demean this glorious calling, the Bible’s hopeful vision of noble womanhood is one worth reclaiming. Queen of the Home seeks to cast that vision afresh through godly encouragements from writers past and present. This inspiring collection of essays, poetry, and poignant vignettes paints a beautiful picture of what it means for a woman to be a crown to her husband, the monarch of the cradle, and queen of the home, and calls upon daughters to embrace their rewarding role and sacred calling as regal women of God.

Through midnight Monday, Dec. 1, 2014  Queen of the Home is on sale for $2.99 !!! (Nearly 60 % off the regular price of $6.99!)  Spread the word far and wide!

Olmstead: Don’t Disdain Stay-At-Home Moms

November 28, 2014 | Author:

Kerem Tapani Compfight CC

“I have a secret disdain for people who stay at home.” Thus writes Dan Kois in an article for Slate, describing the ”stew of envy, disrespect, thankfulness, and resentment” he feels toward stay-at-home parents (mothers, more particularly). While he tries to give stay-at-home parents (SAHP’s) the benefit of the doubt in some instances, Kois’s article really boils down to this sentiment:

I do, deep in my heart, view working for a living as preferable to not working for a living. Where does this view come from? From my own working parents, I guess; from watching as brilliant women I knew in high school and college gave up the careers they might have led in favor of caring for children; from growing up embracing a kind of 1970s feminism that celebrated women breaking the shackles of housewifery and ascending, rapturously, to the workplace. … And because I can’t help but feel that my way of doing things is the best way of doing things, I respect people with jobs and subtly disrespect people without them.

What this quote reveals is that Kois, like many other people, has no idea what the “stay-at-home” position traditionally entailed (and often, still does entail).
