An Open Letter Regarding Planned Parenthood's Bogus Claims of Prenatal Care

Dear Congressman Don Bacon,

We are so pleased that you have promised to actively promote the sanctity of human life as Nebraska’s 2nd District Congressman and that you have included the de-funding of the nation’s leading abortion business, Planned Parenthood, in your overall commitment to protect babies and their moms from exploitation and violence. Thank you so much.

Please take note of the Live Action video that I send along in this Vital Signs Blog post. You will find it of tremendous help in clarifying for your colleagues and constituents that Planned Parenthood is not, in fact, into prenatal care as they publicly claim. In their own words, Planned Parenthood clinic personnel from around the nation admit that they are all about abortion…and definitely not prenatal care.

It’s a very illuminating clip indeed.

Again, thank you for your principled and compassionate stand for life.

In Their Own Words: Planned Parenthood Does NOT Provide Prenatal Care

“Planned Parenthood is an abortion corporation that has spent hundreds of millions of dollars in marketing and political lobbying to perpetuate a lie that it’s not focused on abortion, but rather on women’s health care.”

 Check out what Planned Parenthood reps around the country actually say.

Action Needed Now on Choose Life Plates

Hey, Nebraskans! This is from the latest alert of Nebraska Family Alliance:

Nebraska hasn’t passed a pro-life bill in 5 years. That could change this week when a bill to create “Choose Life” License Plates goes before the full legislature. Proceeds from the plate would go to the Child Abuse Prevention Fund.

While all states allow specialty license plates and the “Choose Life” plate is available in at least 29 other states, Planned Parenthood and pro-choice activists have rallied against it.

Now is the time when state senators need to hear from you most. Pro-choice activists have been contacting senators telling them to oppose this bill. It is critical that senators hear from you, too.

The NFA suggests that you quickly follow these steps:

Step 1: Identify your State Senator. Here is a link to an interactive map that identifies districts based on addresses.

Step 2: Look up contact info for your district’s representative.

Step 3: Call or email your representative.
If you send an email, consider copying all members of the Transportation Committee to the email you send to your state senator.  Despite the fact that there were many opponents of this bill at the committee hearing, the Transportation Committee voted unanimously, 8-0, to advance the bill. It is important these state senators be thanked for their efforts to advance LB46 and ensure they know their stand has not gone unnoticed.

Tomorrow Is Sanctity of Life Sunday

Principled Protest

Claire and I just returned from a public protest demonstration. It was a protest directed against the barbaric poisoning and dismemberment of preborn boys and girls AND the criminal acts of selling parts of the victims’ bodies AND the horrendous waste of taxpayer monies AND the exploitation of the fears and ignorance of vulnerable young women AND a general despoiling of the culture through lies, indecency, and violence.

It was a protest of the nation’s biggest abortion business, Planned Parenthood.

Oh, by the way, in this protest demonstration there were ZERO cars set afire, ZERO windows busted, ZERO bricks thrown at police officers, ZERO business trashed, and ZERO threats shouted out at those who might not agree with us.

What DID happen at this public protest demonstration was the holding of winsome pro-life signs and banners, encouraging and challenging conversation, and a whole lot of concerted prayer.

Turn Off the Clowns!

Steer clear...way clear...of the creepy clowns of the old guard media. There is now a lot of honest, relevant, courageous journalism going on in alternative media. So start availing yourself of it.

And turn off the clowns!

The Poetry and Power of Choice

Abortion destroys precious individuals who are made in the image of God. “Choice,” a riveting Spoken Word poetry video by Living Waters President, Emeal (“E.Z.”) Zwayne, drives this urgent truth home, and holds up the glorious gospel as our only hope and remedy.
