Leave It All Out on the Sidewalk!

July 26, 2012 - 4:46pm
It strikes me how often the "heart" is mentioned in scripture. One of my favorite instances of this is when Paul prays for the Ephesians about their "inner man." He says, "For this reason I bow my knees before the Father , from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of His glory He may grant you to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man , and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith ; that you... know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled...Read more

An Amazing Tuesday

July 12, 2012 - 11:35am
I'm never free on Tuesdays but it just so happened that my son was doing an all-day summer camp and I had a free day. I heard that they were doing ultrasounds at Planned Parenthood today so I made it a point to go out to the sidewalk. Already in the facility was a couple with two children who were waiting in the front area. The husband came out, and I offered information for those who were there for ultrasounds. He came over to talk to me - which I always feel is a miracle in itself. I told him about the stages of the baby's development and...Read more

Faith Like Potatoes

June 21, 2012 - 4:55pm
I recently watched a movie called “Faith Like Potatoes” based on a true story about Angus Buchan, a Scottish farmer in Africa in the late 1970s. Though it isn’t very well done and isn’t a prolife movie, the message toward the end was quite moving for the work that we do. During the South African El Nino drought of the late nineties Angus felt called by God to plant potatoes. Now if you don't know anything about potatoes they need plenty of water, weather under 90 degrees and grow under ground. Angus’ situation in Africa was quite the opposite...Read more

Praying on the Sidewalk

June 13, 2012 - 1:21pm
Have you ever prayed outside of an abortion clinic and encountered hostile stares, rude words and negative reactions? Or have you ever prayed outside of a clinic for weeks at a time and all that happened was... nothing? No babies were saved, no pregnant women changed their minds and no clinic workers suddenly converted? Were you left wondering why your prayers didn't seem to have any visible answer? Have you ever just felt discouraged about your work as a pro-lifer? I know I have. Praying outside of abortion clinics can be scary and hard. It...Read more

Planned Parenthood Worker Fired After Live Action Investigation Release

May 29, 2012 - 2:21pm
Just hours ago, Live Action released a new investigation video that proved Planned Parenthood’s eagerness to participate in sex-selective abortions that specifically target unborn baby girls. Weeks before details of the investigation were made public, Planned Parenthood admitted it was “ worried ” that it had been stung by Live Action again. Its worries were confirmed this morning. Planned Parenthood fired a staff member in Austin, Texas who was caught on video assisting a woman in obtaining an abortion in the event that her unborn child was a...Read more

UPDATE: 5th Circuit Judge Stays Lower Court's Injunction -- Defunding Planned Parenthood Begins!

05/03/2012 AUSTIN , TX -- Late April 30, a federal judge on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stayed the order of the federal court in Austin . That means that as on May 1, the de-funding of Planned Parenthood from the Medicaid Women's Health Program has begun. That defunding is required under Senate Bill 7, which was passed by the Legislature and signed into law by pro-life Governor Rick Perry last summer. "For the first time in the seven-year history of the Medicaid Women's Health Program, Planned Parenthood will not receive federal and...Read more

Federal Judge in Austin Orders Texas to Continue to Fund Planned Parenthood 04/30/2012 AUSTIN, TX -- Today a federal district court in Austin ordered Texas to continue to fund Planned Parenthood under the Medicaid Women's Health Program using federal and state tax dollars.

Today's ruling by Judge Lee Yeakel prevents that rule from...Read more
