Planned Parenthood

"You did the best you could. The rest is in God's hands."

August 23, 2013 - 8:59pm
A recent story of a heart saved and a life spared by Cathy. It was a busy family morning when I dropped off my son at his science class and realized that the location wasn't too far from Planned Parenthood and that I had about 45 minutes. "Oh well," I thought, "I can go for a little while." I know how important Thursday's are since they often do pre-abortion ultrasounds that day at PP. So I got to the SACFL office and picked up some materials, and I headed out to the sidewalk. After about 30 minutes I encountered a lady coming out of the...Read more

A Pro-Life New Year

April 2, 2013 - 9:40am
I have a confession to make. I have been working actively in the pro life movement for over a decade now and sometimes I feel like we have gotten no closer to ending abortion. Each week brings a new abortion day. To top it all off Planned Parenthood just released its annual report showing a rise in the number of abortions and an over a BILLION dollar profit for this supposed “non-profit” organization. I am tired. Isn’t it so easy to get caught up in the “I never” of life? I never get this. I never get that. Sometimes it’s too easy to walk...Read more

Today's blog post comes from an amazing woman, Cathy Kerr. She is one of my personal heroes! As a post abortive woman, she has been an amazing leader for helping young women to see the truth of abortion. Cathy currently serves as the Regional Coordinator for Silent No More Awareness Campaign. "I met a woman on the sidewalk today. A group of pro-life prayer warriors gathered in front of a Planned Parenthood facility to stand against the death of innocent babies in the womb. I always watch my fellow prayer partners as they pray and reach out to...Read more

On July 4th, 1776 the Congress of the thirteen united States of America issued The Declaration of Independence. It was just the beginning of what became a hard fought and, eventually won, freedom. Certainly one of the most famous lines in this declaration is that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Time and time again we have heard these words whenever an unjustice against persons in seen. Using these words we saw...Read more

Is Planned Parenthood Really Needed in Our Community?

June 10, 2010 - 3:23pm
With all the talk of health care recently, given the new Obamacare plan, Planned Parenthood as a large benefactor of federal money comes up a lot. Are they really what they say- providers of health care to a community who otherwise would have none? Or is there a deeper, darker side to why they exist? As you may or may not know, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood had some radical beliefs on eugenics, birth control and large families. Here are some quotes from Margaret Sanger herself taken from the site www.dianedew.com/sanger...Read more
