And he said to them: “Take care what you do, for you are judging, not on behalf of man, but on behalf of the Lord; he judges with you. An now, let the fear of the Lord be upon you. Act carefully, for with the Lord, our God, there is no injustice (2 Chronicles 19:6-7)

We pray for the Supreme Court Justice’s as they deliberate the case before them. We ask that they would feel the weight of heaven even more than the pressure of man. We ask that their conscience remind them of what is true, right, and good in the sight of God.Read More “Prayers for the Repeal of Roe v. Wade”

DAY 9: The Good News Keeps Coming

DAY 9: The Good News Keeps Coming

by Karl Pieleck
DAY 9: The Good News Keeps Coming

It’s not just a clever tagline. Your prayers really do bring about The Beginning of the End of Abortion.

Case in point: over the last few years, 40 Days for Life campaigns in the El Paso, Texas area have helped put 3 different abortion facilities out of business…forever!

And the good news keeps coming. Mark, who oversees multiple campaigns in the region recently announced that El Paso’s Planned Parenthood no longer has an active abortion license.

“This means they are not able to perform any abortion…even chemical abortions under six weeks, which are still currently allowed by the Heartbeat Law.

Premature baby girl born at 27 weeks is now a thriving preschooler

Premature baby girl born at 27 weeks is now a thriving preschooler

by Administrator

Three-year-old Jessica Shannon had a challenging start to life, but the little girl has overcome the odds and is now ready to start nursery school. Jessica, of Great Barford, England, was born 13 weeks early with chronic lung disease and sight problems. She weighed just 760 grams at the time of birth.

According to the Bedford Independent, Jessica’s mom, Rebecca, had both pre-eclampsia and HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzyme levels, and low platelet levels), which meant that Jessica suffered from restricted growth in the womb. After she was born via emergency c-section at 27 weeks, she was put on a ventilator and needed steroids.

The incredible truth about what preborn babies can hear, see, and do

The incredible truth about what preborn babies can hear, see, and do

Live Action’s Baby Olivia project highlights the remarkable journey of life that takes place before birth. Not only does Baby Olivia show how preborn children develop physically, she can offer a glimpse into how they development mentally. Brain wave activity first begins at just over six weeks post-fertilization, and as a preborn child’s brain develops in the womb, she will learn the sound of her mother’s voice, and even her parents’ musical taste. After birth, she will be able to recognize these sounds, including lullabies. Studies using ultrasound and magnetic field scanners reveal the consciousness that preborn children have.

Preemie born 15 weeks early fought for his life and is thriving today

Preemie born 15 weeks early fought for his life and is thriving today

by Administrator

Amell Lee-Lewis may have a disability, but it doesn’t define him — and it doesn’t hold him back.

In November of 2016, Amell was born 15 weeks early, weighing just 2 lbs, 2 oz. According to the family’s fundraising page, Amell was separated from his mother right away and was sent to a hospital with a higher-level NICU so he could get the care he needed.

However, things quickly went south, as the transfer led to his deteriorating health, including a severe brain bleed and a build-up of fluid on the brain. Amell had surgery just a month after birth and needed more surgeries on his brain over the next six months, including one due to an infection.

Jose Cobos-Portillo came to the U.S. from Mexico in September 2020 on a work visa. But that same month he was admitted to Northwest Texas Healthcare in Amarillo to receive care for COVID-19. While fighting for his life against COVID, he was also fighting for his life against the hospital and its desire to let him die. Though the hospital tried to withdraw his life-sustaining care, Cobos-Portillo has recovered.

According to Texas Right to Life, Cobos-Portillo was in the hospital for nearly two months battling COVID-19 and spent time in a medically-induced coma. He was without his family, who were all back in Mexico.

Determined mom makes medical breakthrough for children with Down syndrome

Determined mom makes medical breakthrough for children with Down syndrome

by Administrator

A mom of a child with Down syndrome says she was repeatedly ignored by doctors as her daughter struggled with her health, before she solved the medical mystery on her own.

Austin Carrigg’s daughter, Melanie, wasn’t reaching developmental milestones like other children with Down syndrome. She never learned to hold her head up or sit on her own, both things that children with Down syndrome are expected to do. Yet doctors told Carrigg the reason was simply because of Melanie’s Down syndrome.

“I remember taking her to a developmental pediatrician and saying, ‘I know something is very wrong and we’re here to see you because you’re the type of doctor who helps us figure out why she’s not meeting her milestones,’” Carrigg told TODAY.
