“Unplanned” Premiers at 800 Theaters on March 29

(30 minute preview)

All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood Clinic Directors in the nation. She counseled countless women about their reproductive choices and was involved in approximately 22,000 abortions, and told women on a daily basis about what abortion services were available for them, like the Title IX taxpayer funding of the abortion referral agency which continues to be a major point of contention between Republicans and Democrats. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in, but then she saw something, a life-changing experience that changed everything, leading Abby to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life, and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America.

(Abby Johnson)

This movie, “Unplanned”, brings an eye-opening look inside the abortion industry from a woman who was once its most passionate advocate. After reading Abby Johnson’s best-selling book of the same title, Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman were moved to bring this inspiring true story to the big screen, giving voice to a woman who has been on both sides of the abortion conversation.  Stumbling blocks were put everywhere when making this movie, by Planned Parenthood and Hollywood, by turning down nine out of ten times  their attempt to license songs (which meant main songs had to be cut back because of major labels refusing them license), having to secretly film in Oklahoma because of the controversy surrounding the subject matter, and finding a Director who was willing to produce it. 

The director of the forthcoming movie “Unplanned” says the pro-life film was made “for such a time as this,” as several states are advancing radical abortion laws.

Last month, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed into law a bill legalizing abortion “at any time when necessary to protect a woman’s life or health.” Lawmakers in Virginia, Rhode Island and Vermont are promoting similar bills.

For actress, Ashley Bratcher, making the pro-life-themed film “Unplanned” was both a professional challenge and a personal risk …“  “I knew from the very beginning, they warned me, they said, ‘You’re probably gonna get blacklisted. This could end your career.’ I said, ‘I don’t care. It’s worth it,’”   “This movie is not about judgment and condemnation, it’s about mercy and forgiveness,” she said. 

The $6 million “Unplanned” was partially financed by Michael Lindell, the multimillionaire founder of My Pillow. Worth an estimated $300 million, Lindell is a born-again Christian and outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump.

It has been said that, “Unplanned” is the most important movie you’ll ever see on the most controversial issue of our time. No matter which side of the fence you’re on, no one will leave this film unmoved by Abby’s journey.

Black History Month

Black-History-Month-2017-Image

Black History Month 2019 in the United States of America began on Friday, February 1 and ends on Thursday, February 28.

Further down on the page I have included a lot of good sources as far as the massive amounts of influential people and organizations  that make up our current and past black history, but this year I want to talk about “black abortion”, because as of today there have been 18,307,423+ black abortions.  Can you imagine how many of those lives may have been like Martin Luther King, a future 2nd black President, the next Michael Jackson or Prince, a doctor that saved so many lives or came up with a new medical procedure, a honest political figure that helped instead of ignoring or destroying the education, living conditions, employment numbers, black homeowner rates, etc.?

According to World Magazine “Abortion still devastates the African-American community at an alarming and disproportionate rate, but black pro-life activists are fighting for lives.”

Black-Lives-Matter-planned-parenthood-protest2-1

In New York City, hundreds more black babies died from abortion than were born alive in 2016. In years past, that number has been in the thousands.

Pro-abortion groups reject the idea of abortion as a form of racism, but pro-life advocates have noted a high percentage of Planned Parenthood centers operate within walking distance of black or Hispanic communities.

Although people automatically think “Republican” when it comes to pro-life, there are very active Democrat Pro-Life Groups.  Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about Democrat Officials.  According to Slate, “Shortly after the anti-abortion group Democrats for Life of America was founded in the late 1990s, its website listed more than 40 members of Congress it had identified as pro-life.  Times have changed. In 2018, Democrats for Life found only seven candidates, which actually dwindled down to 6 to endorse in both chambers of Congress combined. 

As the Millennial generation tends to be more active and is moving more and more toward pro-life (having their own pro-life groups), young people like Caleb Hanna, a West Virginia State University student who at 19 became the youngest African American to be elected to a state legislature in November 2018.  Caleb is a pro-life Christian who won on a Platform of “God, Guns, and Babies

Abortion is the leading cause of death in the African American community. The fact is that more African American babies have been killed by abortion during the past 36 years of legalized abortion than the total number of African American deaths from all other causes combined.

Famous Black People That Changed the World

The 44 Most Influencial Black Americans in History

According to ASALH, “When Carter G. Woodson established Negro History week in 1926, he realized the importance of providing a theme to focus the attention of the public. The intention has never been to dictate or limit the exploration of the Black experience, but to bring to the public’s attention important developments that merit emphasis.”  As time progressed, so did the idea that one week was not enough time to honor all the contributions made by the black community, so since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.

“For those interested in the study of identity and ideology, an exploration of ASALH’s Black History themes is itself instructive. Over the years, the themes reflect changes in how people of African descent in the United States have viewed themselves, the influence of social movements on racial ideologies, and the aspirations of the black community……”

Kindergartners to Learn There Are 15 Genders

California wants to teach Kindergartners there are 15 genders and parents will not be notified and are not allowed to opt their children out of the indoctrination sessions.  “According to The California Safe School Coalition, state law provides that “instruction or materials that discuss gender, sexual orientation, or family life and do not discuss human reproductive organs and their functions” are not subject to parental notice and opt-out laws.”

We are talking about five year olds here who have no idea what gender identity is, nor should they even be concerned about it at that age.  A study done by UCLA shows that 25% of kids between the ages of 12 and 17 in California already feel they are gender non-conforming, but apparently 25% is not enough for the LGBT community and the California school system.

The 2019 proposed changes would be implemented under a revision to the state’s “Health Education Framework” to be voted on in May. The guidelines are part of the California Department of Education’s proposed  Health Education Framework.

According to the California Health Framework, which is over 1000 pages, In Chapter 3, Line 1847, the draft recommends the book Who Are You? for pre-K–3rd graders as a “guide” to develop their gender identity.

According to Brenda Lebsack of EDSource, a public educator for twenty (20) years, outlined the 1000 page framework as follows:

“This book introduces young children to the idea that gender is a spectrum. This means genders are unlimited and ever-expanding, rather than confined to two biological genders. In the book, gender is described as, “boy, girl, both, neither, trans, genderqueer, non-binary, gender fluid, transgender, gender neutral, agender, neutrois, bigender, third gender, two spirit…” In Chapter 5, Line 643, the draft introduces sexual orientations as a spectrum as well. LGBTQ+ is defined as an ever-changing spectrum with expanding concepts to include “queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, allies and alternative identities (LGBTQQIAA).” Other sexual orientations introduced in Chapter 6, Line 938 include “pansexual and polysexual.”  To read more of this article, please go to EdSource.

Montana’s Missing Women’s Crisis

WHY, WHY, WHY is this problem not seen as a “problem” – in fact, it is much worse than a problem, it is a travesty that oozes of bigotry. Where are the feminists who love to brag about caring about women? Where are the journalists who ignore this issue like it is nothing of importance? Where are the protests or marches from all sides? Where are the phone calls, e-mails, faxes, or letters that should be sent to the officials in Montana, the BIA, the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, AIM, the Department of Justice, National Crime Information Center, the Urban Indian Health Institute, and all the other sources that need to be contacted?

During a recent Senate Indian Affairs Committee hearing, it was said “that Native Americans in Montana and across this country are dealing with violence at a much higher rate than the rest of the population and you cannot set foot in Indian country without hearing a heartbreaking story about this growing problem.”

The problem is not new in Montana, but in 2019, four pieces of legislation are proposed that should, at the federal level, revamp the way the U.S. Department of Justice compiles a database on missing and murdered Native women to help make sure all law enforcement agencies have necessary information.

In 2016 in a report by the Urban Indian Health Institute said “according to the National Crime Information Center there were 5,712 reports cited of slain or missing Native American women and girls, but only 116 of those cases were logged into a Department of Justice database.” “One of the problems stated is that it takes so long to bring attention to the problem of missing and murdered Native women because of inaccurate stereotypes that degrade how people view Native women.”

According to Senator Jon Tester, “Where’s the problem? Is it with BIA, is it with the FBI, is it with tribal law enforcement?” Tester wondered aloud at the December 12 hearing. “Why are we not finding these people? We would have a different reaction if this was a non-native.”

The Department of Justice has said it’s taken steps to address the problem. Last September it announced more than $113 million in grants to improve public safety, serve victims of crime and combat violence against women in American Indian and Alaska native communities. (This I will have to see to believe that any of this money will go to helping the missing women and girls.)

Studies have shown that this is NOT just a problem in Montana but throughout 71 cities in other states. Police in many U.S. cities fail to track murdered and/or missing Indigenous women. Investigations have shown that records have not been kept, nor have the stories of these missing or murdered women and girls been covered on the news. They have been missing from life, from the news, and from documentation. THIS MUST END!

Cuomo Gets His Way in NY and Abortion is Removed From the Penal Code

To watch the complete news report on video, please click on the link below:

  • New York lawmakers are poised to pass legislation codifying rights protected by Roe v. Wade and other abortion rulings,

  • The measure to protect abortion rights in case they are overturned by the Supreme Court,

  • The bill would also authorize physician assistants and nurse practitioners to perform some abortions.

    (Original quote from the Democrat & Chronicle, Part of the U.S.A. Today Network)

    “ALBANY – The state Legislature on Tuesday afternoon will pass a long-stalled bill that will strengthen abortion rights in New York.

    The Reproductive Health Act is then expected to be signed into law later Tuesday at the state Capitol by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has pushed its passage for years.

    “We’re saying that here in New York, women’s health matters,” said Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, D-Yonkers. “We’re saying here in New York, women’s lives matter. We’re saying here in New York, women’s decisions matter.”

    The vote Tuesday comes on the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade court case in 1973. The Senate passed it.

    In addition to the abortion bill, the Democratic-controlled Legislature will pass the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act, which will require insurers to cover contraception for patients.

    They will also pass the “boss bill,” which would ban employers from discriminating against employees over their reproductive health-care decisions.”

    To read the entire article you can click click Here!

    The effort to update abortion rights in New York comes as abortion rates have declined to historic lows in the state and nation.

    Cuomo’s next attempt is to have the New York Constitution changed to include these new laws.

Ben Shapiro Advocates for the Right of the Unborn At The March For Life

(Short Version)

Jewish Pro-Life Foundation says:  ” As the first speaker at the rally, Ben Shapiro’s impassioned, heartfelt, and religious sentiments about protecting the unborn reflected the feelings and attitudes of everyone in attendance. We were so happy to have personally witnessed this Jewish expression of righteousness, intelligence, and compassion.

Our experience at the 46th annual March For Life inspired and strengthened us to continue working to promote a culture of life in the Jewish community. During his hour long podcast aired from the stage, Ben Shapiro fired up the massive crowd with his pointed arguments debunking the illogical and deceitful reasons given for abortion.
