His wife got pregnant from sexual assault… and he has a message for pro-life men

Editor’s Note: This article was originally published as a Facebook post at Love Louder – Jeff and Jennifer Christie.

Men, be MEN.

I’m a former Marine. These days, I work full time in manufacturing. I’m not one to go out and seek to be known or throw myself into the public arena. Yet, my wife and I are pro life speakers. I’m not the natural she is. That’s obvious within the first few minutes of me opening my mouth. But like my wife Jennifer says, “As God opens doors, we’ll walk through them.”

In 2014, Jen was a victim of a sexual assault so brutal it doesn’t bear thinking about.

Poland Shuts the Door on Eugenic Abortion

Poland Shuts the Door on Eugenic Abortion

Good news in the fight against the culture of death is all too rare. But today, we have extremely good news from the homeland of the “pope of life,” St. John Paul II. Just days ago, Poland’s Constitutional Tribunal removed one of the few remaining exceptions to that country’s abortion law, ruling that abortions in cases of “fetal defect or incurable illness” constitute a violation of Poland’s Constitution.

The tribunal’s president, Julia Przylebska, wrote in the decision that abortion in such cases amounts to “eugenic practices.” Since the Polish Constitution guarantees the right to life, she wrote, such abortions are “a directly forbidden form of discrimination.”

Alveda King: We Must End the Abortion Industry’s Genocide Against Black Children

Alveda King: We Must End the Abortion Industry’s Genocide Against Black Children

by Administrator

On Sept. 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln first signed the Emancipation Proclamation, formally ending chattel slavery, which had reduced human beings to mere property. Yet, despite this presidential public policy change, we still see vestiges of that vile institution in the way Black women and their unborn children are treated today.

For many, many decades, Black women and babies have been disproportionately targeted by the abortion industry. Babies of Black mothers are three times more likely to be aborted than White babies, resulting in 20 million Black children having been legally killed in America since 1973. It is without a doubt the most significant civil rights issue of our time.

Separating Fact From Fiction: Recent Cases of Recovered Missing Children and What They Show About Child Sex Trafficking

In just the past few weeks, law enforcement operations in Georgia, Indiana and Ohio have led to the rescue of some 70-plus children who had been reported missing or were considered endangered. In some cases, charges of sex trafficking have been filed. The public will likely never know a great deal of detail about how these children wound up in these horrible situations – and that’s as it should be. They deserve the privacy to heal. Unfortunately, when information is hard to come by, rumors and misinformation fill in the gaps. Some of these rumors and misinformation are spread intentionally to scare people into believing they should live in fear for their children in today’s environment.

Kanye West: Abortion has killed more black lives in 2020 than total US COVID death count

by Administrator

October 26, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – So, Kanye West — 2020 presidential candidate, rap artist, and (recently) self-described Christian — headed over to Texas for a conversation with Joe Rogan, and it was quite the ride. West talked about how he plans to create stadium churches; his brawls with the music industry executives; his (very American) path from hip hop to church and sort of back again; and his apparently very real political aspirations.

Despite accusations from the Left that Kanye West is running for president as the 2020 election cycle’s Jill Stein with an eye to screwing things up for Joe Biden, West dropped $3 million on his campaign last month alone.

Forced abortion is the ultimate form of domestic violence

by Administrator

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. While abortion advocates present abortion as a means to rescue women from their abusers, this is inaccurate. Abortion within abusive relationships is often coerced. Some abusers even force pregnancy on their victims so they can then force them to abort.

Forced abortion statistics

In a national study on forced abortion in America, research revealed that 64% of women who obtained abortions were pressured to do so, and some of the coercion was physically violent. Of those women, 65% showed signs of trauma. The study cited testimony from a former abortion business security guard who told the Massachusetts legislature that women were routinely brought to the abortion facility by their abusive and threatening partners, to ensure they went through with the abortions.

Dominic is alive and well today after doctors told his mom she needed an abortion

In 2016, Tara Vigarino’s water broke at just 17 weeks. Terrified, Vigarino was told that her baby had no chance of survival due to such an early gestational age. “I was a basket of emotions,” Vigarino told SELF magazine. “It was not at all what I was expecting to hear.”

Doctors at Vigarino’s hospital encouraged her to either have an abortion or to go home and wait for a miscarriage to happen. However, her OB/GYN offered her help and hope and told her to stay in bed and drink fluids to try to increase what amniotic fluid she did have.

Once a week she would visit her OB/GYN to check on the baby.

Study Shows Mothers of Babies With Down Syndrome Face Tremendous Pressure to Kill Them in Abortions

Study Shows Mothers of Babies With Down Syndrome Face Tremendous Pressure to Kill Them in Abortions

Discrimination against unborn babies with disabilities is a huge problem in our supposedly modern, progressive culture.

Countless times, LifeNews.com and other pro-life sources have encountered stories of mothers being pressured to abort unborn babies after a diagnosis of Down syndrome, spina bifida, microcephaly or even cleft lip.

A new study highlighted in Scientific American found more evidence of this discrimination while conducting research about medical diagnosis trauma.

Authors Cindi May, a professor of psychology at the College of Charleston, and Jaclyn Hennessey Ford, a research assistant professor in the department of psychology and neuroscience at Boston College, surveyed more than 300 mothers of children diagnosed with Down syndrome.

Identical Twins are Doing Great After Parents Reject Killing One of Them in Abortion

Identical Twins are Doing Great After Parents Reject Killing One of Them in Abortion

by Administrator

Premature twins, Finn and Zack Bishop, are now flourishing at home after being born at 28 weeks, and just one day after doctors advised their parents to have an abortion.

At 24 weeks, mother Caroline Bishop underwent pioneering surgery to correct a condition which was causing an uneven blood flow between the babies, meaning Zack received more nutrients than Finn.

During the otherwise successful surgery, Zack suffered with a bleed in the brain.

He was later diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia, a type of brain injury common in babies who have had a bleed in the brain. The severity of the condition can cause minimal issues in some children and disability in others.

Rape is a horrific trauma that abortion cannot heal

by Administrator

During the second day of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for the possible confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) questioned Barrett about rape and abortion.

Blumenthal shared the story of a woman named Samantha, whom he said was out with friends and coworkers one evening and woke up the next morning in a coworker’s home. “She had been raped,” he explained. “After she was raped, Samantha was, in her words, ‘a zombie.’ She couldn’t change clothes, couldn’t shower, couldn’t drink or think. She wanted this event to be erased from her memory. Samantha’s attacker also began stalking her, and she was struggling with depression and PTSD.”

Doctors use innovative surgery to successfully remove tumor from preborn baby’s lung

by Administrator

A baby boy given a 10% chance of survival underwent an innovative surgical procedure that saved his life — while he was still attached to the placenta.

Maverick Mashburn had a mass in his right lung that doctors discovered was putting pressure on his esophagus, preventing him from properly processing amniotic fluid and pushing his heart to the side. He was diagnosed with Congenital Pulmonary Airway Malformation (CPAM), a rare congenital birth defect that includes a cystic mass of abnormal lung tissue. According to People, it occurs in between 12,000 and 25,000 preborn children and it is not genetic.

Enquiring minds want the goddesses of the abortion cult to answer these questions: When the surgeon performed this…

Posted by Illinois Family Institute on Monday, October 5, 2020

After delivering the news of the diagnosis, doctors told Maverick’s parents Adrianna and Micah that there was only a 10% chance that Maverick would survive.

Abortion survivor and adoptee Claire Culwell: ‘There is a reason that I survived’

Abortion survivor Claire Culwell was recently interviewed by Live Action President and Founder Lila Rose about her story of abortion survival, adoption, and forgiveness. Culwell had grown up knowing she was adopted. In her early 20s, she met her birth mother and learned that her story was much more shocking than she could have ever realized.

Culwell told Rose that both she and her adopted sister had always known of their adoptions, and felt it was a “really positive thing.” Their parents were missionaries and they spent time living in places like Mexico and Costa Rica as children. It was a life they loved.

Despite my struggles after being adopted from an orphanage in China, I would not change a thing

Despite my struggles after being adopted from an orphanage in China, I would not change a thing

Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this guest post are solely those of the author and are not necessarily reflective of Live Action or Live Action News.

I was born on October 28th, 2002, in China. I was immediately abandoned, and was found the next day at a train station in China with my umbilical cord still attached. While I obviously don’t remember these events, this is significant trauma for anyone to experience. The police sent me to an orphanage where I spent almost the first full year of my life in a crib, resulting in a flat head and impaired brain development.

Over 130 Doctors and Scientists Support Colorado Measure to Ban Late-Term Abortions

Over 130 Doctors and Scientists Support Colorado Measure to Ban Late-Term Abortions

by Administrator

A Colorado ballot measure to ban late-term abortions gained the support of more than 130 doctors and scientists last week in an open letter.

The group of professionals said the evidence is clear that late-term unborn babies are unique, living human beings who deserve protection, and Proposition 115 would provide that to unborn babies in Colorado, according to the Catholic News Agency.

“As healthcare professionals we are totally aware of the science of human development. The humanity of a 22-week fetus is apparent to each of us. There can be no doubt that the 22-week fetus is fully alive and fully human,” the letter states.

Rose Procession News and Pictures

I want to thank everyone involved with the planning and execution of this year’s Pro-Life Rose Procession. Every year we have the privilege of hearing the many stories from people who are impacted by the Rose Procession in a very personal way.  This year was no exception.  The procession makes people stop and think about the 61 million and counting children never allowed to be born.
 
Bringing the Rose Procession to reality does take a village – we had people:
 
  • working the sign-up tables for the two weekends before the procession weekend,
  • advertising the processions through the newsletter distribution list,
  • making reminder calls/e-mails,
  • staffing the sign in tables on procession weekend,
  • recruiting “same-day volunteers” to fill open spots,
  • executing the procession itself, and
  • staffing the after mass table with pro-life magnets, pins, bumper stickers and other pro-life material.
