Shock & Awe: Abortion to Fall

So many amazing things are happening right now that I don’t know where to start!

I’m writing to you from an airplane while flying home from Phoenix, Arizona, where I spoke Friday and Saturday at the Arizona Right to Life state conference. It was a motivating event!

In addition to the presentations delivered at the conference, I also gave a brand-new talk to the Respect Life coordinators for the Diocese of Phoenix at a luncheon on Friday.

While praying about what to share with this group of faithful leaders, I felt led to share some things I’ve never publicly talked about before…

…Including what happened to me last Thursday on the floor of the House of Representatives chamber at the U.S. Capitol…

…And a life-altering experience I had at a former abortion facility in Michigan during the first 40 Days for Life back in 2004.

To be honest, I was a bit worried about how this talk would be received — especially since I was sharing some deeply personal experiences that have transformed my life and work.

Thankfully, the feedback was beyond anything I could have possibly hoped for, and I was thrilled that the entire talk was recorded so I could share it with you.

Here it is…

I am in complete awe of the unprecedented level of pro-life activity that is stirring all across America and Canada as more than 170 cities actively gear up for this fall’s 40 Days for Life campaign — at a crucial time when abortion is back at the top of the news headlines and in the forefront of the heated political debate.

We’ve also learned of many other organizations now joining in 40 Days for Life’s call for nationwide prayer, fasting, and action:

  • The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION has joined the call, asking all believers to unite together in the September 24 – November 2 season of prayer and fasting
  • STOP PLANNED PARENTHOOD, encouraged by the fact that more than 75 of the 40 Days for Life campaigns will focus on Planned Parenthood centers, is rallying its network of activists around the country to join the effort
  • STUDENTS FOR LIFE OF AMERICA is asking its 400+ college pro-life groups to take part in 40 Days for Life campaigns, and has activated ten field agents who are traveling from campus to campus rallying excited pro-life students
  • AMERICAN LIFE LEAGUE is actively encouraging its affiliate groups around the country to take part in 40 Days for Life efforts 
  • Numerous post-abortion awareness and recovery ministries, including SILENT NO MORE AWARENESS, RACHEL’S VINEYARD, OPERATION OUTCRY, and ABORTION RECOVERY INTERNATIONAL are partnering with 40 Days for Life to help bring healing to many of those who have been wounded by abortion
  • PRIESTS FOR LIFE is sending out its entire ministry team to travel across country all fall, mobilizing networks of people and building momentum through visits to dozens of the local 40 Days for Life campaigns
  • BOUND4LIFE is mobilizing its 165 chapters across America to join the 40 day initiative and is assembling a prayer team that will hold a non-stop vigil 24 hours a day for each of the 40 days outside the U.S. Supreme Court
  • To coincide with the kickoff of 40 Days for Life, the EWTN GLOBAL TELEVISION NETWORK will be airing a world-premiere show in millions of homes on Sunday, September 21, at 9 PM Eastern (6 PM Pacific) calling for 40 Days for Life involvement. See:
  • More than 20 CATHOLIC BISHOPS, ARCHBISHOPS, and CARDINALS have now endorsed 40 Days for Life and encouraged the faithful in their dioceses to participate
  • We’re hearing from KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS councils from coast-to-coast that are challenging their knights to “speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves” through active participation in 40 Days for Life
  • THE CALL is mobilizing its network of prayer warriors across the globe for massive, unified prayer and fasting from September 24 until November 2, ending with a huge stadium event in San Diego, California.

There are many more, but you get the idea…

…This fall is not only going to be the largest and longest coordinated pro-life mobilization in history, it could also be one of the largest unified 40-day seasons of prayer and fasting in North America during our lifetime.


Who would have ever believed that this would go from one simple idea to a worldwide movement — in just ONE YEAR…

…But, by the grace of God, it has.

And YOU can help shape history by participating!

  1. We must not forget that everyone has value even when he/she is a unborn baby of humble means. This morality of Social Darwinism and the Humanist Manifesto now taught in our education establishments is producing a sence of alienation and meaninglessness that is the principal malady of young minds.

    We are in a culture war. We cannot let the pagan education establishment make us believe their stereotype of us. Remember everone goes to school and university. Canada was a Christian country of sorts but now is almost completely pagan. Christians are stereotyped by these pagans as wimpy, lackluster, two-faced , mindless with none of the courage, beauty, goodness and intellect that christianity represents. Christians are why Darwin’s so-called lower races got the right to vote in Canada in 1947. My Grandfather was in Canada since 1904 and only got the right to be a human being in 1947. No thanks to Darwin’s theory that now is taught in our schools as the “only” creation story to live all of life by, and it is protected by the Canadian Supreme Court by blasphemy laws! When you tell people for fifty years that they are wimpy, lackluster, two-faced, mindless and gutless, sooner or later you will produce a generation of them that meet these standards. This is what our education establishments are now doing to our kids. Some of them are in every Profession and believe these lies. I have to thank professor Tom Landers for teaching me how to research the so-called truths in university textbooks, but of course the textbook answer has to be given to pass the exam. Now professors can be fired for doing this.

    When I went to public school in our Canada the Ten Commandments were on schoolroom and courtroom walls and on students and citizens minds, because they were everywhere. We were not christians then and when my parents learned the Ten Commandments they were glad they were brought to Canada. I learned the songs I now sing in church in my public school music class.

    Now is the time for us in the name of Christ to stand firm, as our children are being socially engineered to be pagans in our schools and universities. When the war is over, we will gather around the throne and share war stories. Before Darwinian Humanist atheism took over the education and thus legal establishment, and forced their beliefs of the Humanist Manifesto on everyone Christianity allowed people to believe or disbelieve without enforcement. I hope our citizens will help us win this culture war before paganism is all there is. Blessings

  2. Real science proves unborn babies are innocent human beings.

    Former abortionist Dr.Bernard Nathanson says that Real-Time Ultrasound, which gives a moving picture of the unborn child in the womb; Electronic Heart Monitoring,which detects fetal heartbeats, Brainwave Monitors,which measure brain activity, Fetoscopy, which allows a physician to actually eyeball the baby, simply astounded him.

    Such techniques as Cordocentesis even allow medical diagnosis,treatment and surgery in utero.

    “I finally came to the conviction that this was my patient. This was a person! This was purely a change of mind as a result of fantastic science and technology.”

    Dr.Bernard Nathanson fastened an Ultrasound machine to a woman undergoing an actual abortion, and produced ” SILENT SCREAM”,a film that justly horrified the nation. It showed the fetus trying desperately to move away from the vacuum, and then its body parts were successively sucked off. The film produced a massive campaign of defamation agaist Dr. Nathanson from liberal-thinkers.

    This only made him more determined, so he decided to show an abortion from inside the womb. He attached a camera to a Fetoscope and inserted it during a D&E abortion. The resulting film was “ECLIPSE OF REASON”, and so it is.

    Abortion is the murder of innocent human beings!

  3. Abortion Kills Living Human Beings.Why Are We Doing This In Canada?

    Dilation and curettage is commonly called D&C. The physician dilates the cervix with a series of instruments to allow the insertion of a curette, a loop-shaped knife, into the womb. The instrument is used to scrape the placenta from the uterus and then cut the baby apart. The pieces are then pulled through the cervix. The body must then be reassembled by an attending nurse to make sure no parts remain in the womb to cause infection.

    Suction aspiration. The mouth of the cervix is dilated. A hollow tube with a knife-like edged tip is inserted into the womb. A suction force 28 times stronger than a vacuum cleaner tears the baby and the placenta to pieces. These pieces are sucked into a container.

    Saline injection also known as salt-poisoning. A strong salt solution is injected through the mother’s abdominal wall into the amniotic fluid surrounding the baby. The baby then breathes and swallows the solution causing internal poisoning and burning. In a few hours the unborn baby dies from salt poisoning, dehydration, and hemorrhaging. The mother goes into labor and delivers a dead or dying baby.

    Prostaglandin involves the use of prostaglandin hormones that are injected into the womb or released in a vaginal suppository. This causes the uterus to contract and deliver the baby prematurely. A saline solution is sometimes injected first, killing the child before birth, in order to make the procedure less distressful for the mother and medical staff.

    Dilation and evacuation is commonly called a D&E. The doctor dilates the mother’s cervix and uses forceps to reach into the uterus. He grasps the arms and legs, dismembers the body, and crushes the skull to remove it. The placenta and the smaller pieces of the body are removed by suction and sharp curetting.

    Hysterotomy, similar to a Caesarean section. This procedure involves opening the womb surgically and removing the baby to end the infants life.

    We ought to put and end to this holocaust. This is what happens in a country where the politically correct Darwinian humanist education establishments institutionalize atheism, because we all go to schools and universities

    The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario will force all medical personnel to perform abortions or be charged by the so-called Human Rights Commisions. This institutionalized atheism of Darwinian Humanism spread through our Education Establishments and thus to the Legal Establishment , and to the public goes against freedom of moral thinking and speech. Our judges and Legal Establishment with their Living Tree Evolving Society interpretation of Law do anything they want ! The journalists of our popular media who say they stand for free speech don’t on this and many other perversions. This imposed paganism is harmful not only to our children, but Canada and Western Civilization. Many people escaped to Canada from countries like Canada has been educated with this institutionalized atheism to become. Concerned citizens ought to come together and try to stop this. Electing and supporting the proper politicians to do this is a good idea.
