All Life!

Melissa Ohden writes in her webpage, "Systemically aborting babies deemed “different” or disabled is not only a reflect of intolerance and discrimination, it also deepens and embeds these ugly attitudes.
Just the other day, I was on a flight to Texas, when this realization hit me full force.  It’s not the first time that it’s crossed my mind, and I know that I’m not the first person to reach this conclusion, but I think that it bears discussing.
For me, the extermination of individuals prenatally diagnosed with disabilities (even a suspicion of disabilities) is personal.  Not just because I’m an abortion survivor, but also because I’m a mother who lost a unborn child at 11 weeks. A chromosomal abnormality ended Gabriel’s life in the womb.  My husband Ryan and I were told that our son likely had Trisomy 18.
I shared in a series of articles published on LifeNews not long after we lost our son that I know that God created Gabriel exactly as he was, Trisomy 18 and all.  I know that God didn’t take him away from us.  He redeemed our loss of Gabriel by blessing us with lessons about life, loss, and love.  He further solidified for us the sanctity of every life from the moment of conception.
Yet I won’t pretend that these lessons through loss were, or are, easy, or that they came to me quickly.  The first Sunday after the miscarriage, I was still weighed down heavily with grief. I choked back tears as I watched families entering the sanctuary.  I wanted to blend in with the crowd to avoid even speaking to anyone.  I wondered if coming out of the house just a few days after the  miscarriage was the right thing to do.
And then I saw him.  A young man, about 20 years of age, was sitting with his mother.  It was just the two of them, his arm wrapped affectionately around her shoulder.  They were visibly joyous and loving.  And I was, admittedly, jealous.
I  thought that my heart might burst from the pain that I felt in losing Gabriel was intermingled with the joy that I felt watching these two interact.  You see, this son had Down syndrome, and although Gabriel’s diagnosis was different, I felt an instant connection to them.  I could identify with them and desperately wanted to be them.
I’ll be honest.  In those first few weeks after we lost Gabriel, I walked through a valley of intense grief.  Although I knew God was right there with us, supporting and guiding us, I had my moment of despair in which I questioned Him.
So as I watched this son and mother interact, my question of God was not “How could you have let this happen to us?” Quite the contrary, it was, “Don’t you trust me enough to care for our son with special needs? Am I somehow unworthy of having him here like this mother?”
Over the past 1 1/2 years, I’ve been healed from the pain of losing Gabriel (as healed as you can be), and I know that losing him was not because God saw me unfit to care for him.  Yet I still long for him, and my eyes and heart are attuned to seeing mothers and sons like us in the world.
On that recent flight to Texas, I saw “us” again.
One row behind and to the left sat an adult son with Down syndrome and his mother.  I cherished their laughter as they chatted away in their seats, straining to hear what they might have found so funny, without looking too obvious that I was listening in.
As the plane hit turbulence, I could hear the mother’s words as she tried to calm his nerves.  As I glanced back at them, wistfully, thinking about our Gabriel and missing out on opportunities like this with him, I suddenly realized that I was not the only one watching this duo. But those others were looking with annoyance and disdain.
I could hear the loud whispers from the passengers across the aisle from me about how he was interrupting their sleep and that the mother should ‘make him be quiet.’  I watched as a man in the row ahead of me kept shaking his head and putting it in his hands whenever this young man would cry out and his mother would comfort him.
As I watched all of this occur, I couldn’t help but think about how our world today views lives both inside and outside of the womb that are “different” or disabled.  We know that as many as 90% of children with Down syndrome are aborted. We know that children with even suspected medical issues are targeted for abortion, whether it’s a simple cleft palate or a complex heart problem.  Anyone who may not fit the mold of society’s “normal” are, by and large, aborted.
Not only is this a tragic loss of human life, but I believe that this is a tragic loss to our world. By ending these lives, we surround ourselves, more often than not, by only those lives that are largely similar to our own.  When we are surrounded by such sameness, it becomes more and more difficult for many to be appreciative and simply, even tolerable, of those who are different than them.
Maybe if 90% of all children with Down syndrome were born instead of aborted, the man on the plane shaking his head in annoyance would have had more opportunities to be around individuals with strengths and needs that are uniquely theirs.  Maybe if those 90% of children with Down syndrome were born, the people on the plane complaining about the noise would have been more used to being around individuals who voice their discomfort and who are, in turn, comforted.
What a tragic disservice has been done to children, to families, and ultimately to our world, as a result of targeting children with disabilities for abortion.  In a society that screams for tolerance and diversity, it seems as if we are in search of a rather homogenous society of the “perfect”. It is an ugly cycle: the more we abort children with disabilities, the fewer the opportunities to learn from them, the more ready we are to abort those who are “different.”
Until people respect, appreciate, and understand the importance of every human life, from the moment of conception and regardless of circumstance, they will be far less likely to see the importance of protecting  them and allowing them to live.  Ending the systemic abortion of lives deemed “different” or disabled is an important and integral first step in breaking this cycle of intolerance and discrimination.
As an abortion survivor, this fight to protect ALL human lives is personal.  As a mother who was blessed with a son who would have been born with special needs, this fight is necessary.
Gabriel, fighting this side of the fight to end abortion, is in honor of you."

Charlie's Story-Update

Live Action News, founder Lila Rose, has someone share about Charlie Gard a young boy whose parents were overruled by the parliament in England,

"It appears that the battle to save Charlie Gard’s life has come to an end. Today was the final day in a hearing that would appeal court decisions barring Charlie’s parents from taking him to the United States for experimental treatment, which they believed could help his condition. In a shocking turn of events, the lawyer representing Chris Gard and Connie Yates announced that they were withdrawing their appeal instead.

Charlie was originally placed on life support after he became seriously ill. He was then diagnosed with a rare RRM2B mitochondrial depletion syndrome. Initially, his parents wanted to take him to the United States for an experimental nucleoside therapy treatment, which they believed could save his life. They raised over $1.4 million for his treatment, but Charlie’s hospital – Great Ormond Street Hospital in London – disagreed that the therapy would be beneficial and insisted that Charlie should instead be taken off of life support. The decision sparked a months-long legal battle, with Charlie’s parents losing appeal after appeal, until the European Court of Human Appeals ultimately ruled against them.
The case garnered international attention. A Vatican hospital offered to take in Charlie for treatment, President Trump offered to help baby Charlie, and United States lawmakers introduced a bill to make Charlie and his parents U.S. citizens. However, the hospital and the courts initially held firm and refused to allow Charlie to be treated elsewhere. The hospital also refused to let his parents take him home to die.
As the controversy grew, Great Ormond Street Hospital eventually requested a new court hearing so new evidence could be considered. An American doctor, Dr. Michio Hirano, traveled to London to examine Charlie and to meet with specialists. Dr. Hirano was optimistic that the nucleoside therapy could help Charlie, saying British doctors could be wrong in their diagnosis. Instead, Dr. Hirano said, Charlie could be suffering from muscle weakness, and if this is the case, there is up to a 55 percent chance of therapy helping him.
Given the optimism from Dr. Hirano, the decision from Charlie’s parents to withdraw their appeal to seek experimental treatment is shocking. However, according to their lawyer, it is an issue of time “running out” for Charlie. The lawyer said Charlie’s parents were “distressed” by the results of the latest tests, explaining, “For Charlie, it is too late, the damage has been done… it is no longer in Charlie’s best interests to pursue treatment.” They now instead want to spend what little time Charlie has left with him.
Gard and Yates also don’t appear to be mincing any words about who is responsible for this turn of events. Armstrong said the delay in getting Charlie treatment has robbed him of the opportunity to have the nucleoside therapy. “Dark days lie ahead for these parents,” Armstrong said. “The parents wish to treasure their remaining time with Charlie, however short that may be.”
Yates took the stand herself, saying, “This is the hardest thing we’ve ever had to do. Following [the] most recent MRI scan, we’ve decided to let our son go.”
“He is not brain dead,” she continued. “A whole lot of time has been wasted. Charlie’s quality of life could have been improved greatly (by earlier treatment). But the delay in seeking treatment has brought Charlie to ‘the point of no return.’ Our poor boy has just been left to lie there for months without treatment… left with this illness to deteriorate to point of no return,” she said. “But no organ has failed. No proof he is in pain or suffering. The prospect of improvement now [is] too low. The deterioration in his muscles means there is no way back. Treatment is now not in Charlie’s best interests and we will let our little boy go.”
As she spoke, Chris Gard cried openly.
Yates also argued that it was not too late to prevent such a tragedy from afflicting another family. “It’s not too late for others. We owe it to him [Charlie] to not let his life be in vain,” she said. “We thank GOSH. We love Charlie very much. Our son is a warrior. His legacy will never die. His spirit will live on for eternity. Mummy and Daddy love you so much, Charlie. We always have, we always will.”
While it is not yet clear when – or if – Charlie will be taken off of life support, this is a tragic end for the Gard family."

Quality of life-ethics

Quality of life is subjective. A wealthy person might think someone who is middle class has no quality of life because they don't have a BMW. There are people who may say that poor people in Africa have no quality of life. 
The ethics of "quality of life" are extremely concerning. This term is subjective and causes any person to be the target. This term truly is chosen to be the new definition of value. And every person has innate value and this term is subjective as it allows people to say who is valuable. "Quality of life" gives some people who want to target people groups the freedom to do so. This term gives people the freedom to analyze certain people and people groups to say that they don't fit this definition and therefore are worthy of dying. If medicine has to choose to kill people or keep them we need to find new "medical" developments. Medicine shouldn't have to decide between killing someone and keeping them alive.  We can't normalize death like taking someone off of life support. As we know talk about life support I want to say that this topic is of a delicate manner that I approach it. I believe that life support is used for God's glory and also is sometimes not. Life support is used to help people to stay alive yet at what point are we trying to play God? Life support has one ending, taking someone off it. When we take someone off of life support we are killing them  and choosing to play God. God takes life and makes life not man. The term quality of life opens up doors that for judgement calls to be made on life that only God is allowed to make. The concept of trying to make such a statement on life support is absurd.  Every person deserves life.  This term is used to justify some of the medical field's view to say it is okay to end a child's life who is sick because they can't live long.  Who says that time span determines value?

God's Image

God's Image:

Life is valuable and every person is made in the Image of God because He is Our Creator!  Every person is made in God's likeness and we have to love life by protecting life from womb to tomb. '"In the beginning God created the first man, Adam. Then He created the first woman, Eve, from the man’s side. Adam and Eve were our original parents, made in the image of God. All humans can be traced back to these two people. This is made abundantly clear in Genesis 3:20, where Adam said that Eve “was the mother of all living.'"( The Lord sees all as of equal status.  He looks at life and loves His handiwork.  God has no confusion, only clarity and therefore He can't view life from any other viewpoint except from the Truth and all mankind is made in HIS image. Man sees confusion over the value of life, but God sees complete clarity in the midst of people's blindness. God makes it very clear that every person is a person, in the womb and outside, and the law and circumstances can't redefine truth.

Life has innate value and a situation can't change that. Medicine likes to think that they can hurt life but God loves life and there is never a reason to harm life through abortion.    Medicine must choose to heal not to harm all life.

Baby Charlie is being denied care by the government in England and our nation isn't fighting back but there are many pro life people who are.  The government in the U.K. wants to end his life, his parents on the contrary know that he is valuable and are fighting.
A child at the mercy of another.... the medical field please fight for life...

Down Syndrome

You may be feeling like you are in a crisis pregnancy, and we can help.  There is a kind of crisis pregnancy that is not talked about and often over looked. Have you been given a poor in utero diagnosis of Down syndrome?  One of the most important things to know is that just as your child  before getting the diagnosis was valuable, your child is still equally as valuable. 

People who have Down syndrome love their life and their parents cherish them as with their other children. What does the diagnosis of Down syndrome mean? Will my child talk, walk and be happy? As Vickie, who has a son with Down syndrome shares, "Your child will walk, talk, be joyful, contribute to your life, and enhance your other children's lives."
If you have these thoughts we are here to help you and to give you information, a hand to hold and an advocate to walk through this new diagnosis presented to you about your baby.

Down syndrome is a diagnosis but this diagnosis does not redefine your child's value. Down syndrome can't change how exceptional your baby is.  A Down syndrome diagnosis can be walked through with hope, help and care.

Peter's Story

Peter's Story: Peter was diagnosed with Trisomy 18. His mother's outreach is called Prenatal Partners for Life. She not only walked through what you may be experiencing but wants to walk through this journey with you and she wants to walk through different diagnosis with you as well! If your child has been diagnosed with Trisomy 18 and you were not given much information about your child's sickness or if you need guidance or just someone who understands the journey I recommend you reach out to Mary Kellet Peter's mom as her son has a powerful story that drives her to be there for people and she has many powerful stories that you may want to read up on regarding families who have walked through a poor in utero.
I highly recommend you read this story of this young precious Peter.

Embryo Adoption

Embryo adoption is so important. This gives the child who was left a chance to be valued by parents. Embryo adoption is needed for thousands of people. You get to adopt and be pregnant at the same time. Beautiful. There are 500,000 to 600,000 children in storage. They need your help.  These children need your help. An adoptive family can become pregnant and adopt at the same time. These children need love and care. 

These children are never adopted but they are experimented on and combined with pigs and a little one years ago was combined with a jellyfish "to see what happens" and then they destroyed this baby. These dear children are harmed in the name of "science."  

IVF is not all that it seems. There are more children made in IVF than born. There are exactly 1,691,090 are taken from their families and the most terrifying aspect is that 23,480 were destroyed after being taken out of storage. There are lets say 20 children made in an IVF cycle.

What is the percentage of children discarded from IVF?
A spokesman said, "'IVF involves the creation of more embryos than are transferred to the patient so that the best ones can be chosen to start pregnancy."

These children are "created and thrown away on a daily basis."
Please visit this site for more information concerning embryo adoption and their site is called Nightlight adoption. This organization helps and sees the need for children who are left to also have a home!!!!!:)

Please see Embryo Defense for legal issues.

A miscarriage is one of the most painful experiences a woman can go through.  Miscarriage is the loss of a little one at his or her youngest stage.   Miscarriages are never to be minimized and if a mother has been made to feel that way, that is wrong.  As you have lost your child and are planning the delivery, if your physician has told you to do a D&C, may I encourage you to make sure the doctor has the child child naturally or c-section.  This procedure is truly an undignified way for your passing child to be born. I want to make sure that your child along with you get love and care through dignity and compassion. You can hold and hug and kiss your little one. A D&C cannot give you the opportunity to say goodbye outside of the womb.

From stillbirthday,"One of the most common concerns among doulas and midwives who want to take the SBD doula training is a fear that they will not know how to support families enduring pregnancy and infant loss, when they themselves have not endured such loss personally.
Another common concern is the practical aspect of generating income.
 In part to address these valid concerns, stillbirthday is presenting a radical approach to the philosophy of teaching.
We believe that all SBD Doulas have something unique and valuable to offer, and we are creating a platform for you to present your skill set as an offering to other SBD Doulas and birth professionals.
Starting this fall, all interested SBD Doulas can join the Stillbirthday Global Network as a platform for creating, advertising and presenting your own seminars, virtual workshops and in-service meetings!
It's still under construction, but you can check out the progress here!

All Life is a treasured gift even when unexpected or sick:)

My friend shared this story with me, "I took a city tour in Buenos Aires. I had a very friendly taxi driver and we talked most of the day (I used my very broken Spanish). At one point, we started talking about abortion (it is illegal in Argentina). I mentioned the Down Syndrome statistics (a high percentage of babies who have Down Syndrome are aborted in the US). He expressed his sadness with me on that subject. Then, he told me that when he was a baby, his mother nursed him and a neighbor baby boy who had Down Syndrome. The neighbor had adopted him and was unable to nurse him. He grew up with the boy and now the man (who must be 50ish) lives in the same house down the street from the driver and my driver's children call him an affectionate term for "uncle" in Spanish.

Random story, but I thought it was too beautiful not to share. It's amazing to hear stories of genuine kindness around the world.❤️"

IVF-not a gift for all

    In our society, IVF is considered to be the greatest gift for families who are struggling with infertility.  IVF provides families who cannot conceive on their own with a child.  IVF  is touted as the solution for those that struggle with infertility to have a new found hope of having a child.  This is what our society proclaims about IVF yet many look at the end result without knowing the hidden facts about the process. Each IVF cycle is different and in each cycle there are a different amount of embryos made depending on the situation.

In some IVF cycles there are more babies made through the fertilizing process than born. There can be up to 15 embryos made.  As an example they may take up to 10 babies through a test tube and if they “supposedly” have genetic defects, they kill them.   A former IVF doctor shared that often when children have identified genetic defects early on in the test tube that often the children grow out of these defects.  There is an intrinsic devaluing in life.  Then the other 4 babies are killed by being flushed down a drain in the sink.  Then we have 6 babies left as an example.  
Now these parents are told they have “options” for their “left over embryos” such as one can freeze embryos for later use or one can can donate them to science to see “what causes miscarriages” in babies or one can donate them to put them up for adoption.

Freezing a child for later use can cause a mindset of viewing the child as property rather than as a person.  Live Action shared about a speech that Dr. Caruso( a former IVF doctor) did for Pro-Life Action League, “Caruso states that back then they would take early embryos and implant them, but that technology and treatments kept advancing and therefore embryos would end up being frozen at later and later stages of development. “As this was happening, we were beginning to leave these embyros in culture longer and longer,” he said. “[…] we focused on the babies. […] We never really thought much beyond that.” Dr. Caruso said that the children through IVF are considered “manufactured goods.”  Freezing a child for later use will just cause a child who could have a family to live in limbo and to cause you to keep paying for storage for this child that you may never allow to be born.  Our personhood from fertilization is lost through IVF. If you are contemplating keeping your embryos in storage for no purpose that, is harmful as this embryo needs a family and you are responsible to care for this child as much as the child you are not paying for storage.  You must see this embryo as your child and therefore not keep him or her in storage for no purpose but the cost to keep this child in storage annually is not a trade off for the gift of a priceless child being given to a family through adoption.  

     You see I think that IVF can become a price tag on an embryo mentality and a ‘left over’ issue and not a child and parent view point.  I want to give an example, imagine you have a 5 year old child and you can’t take care of them so you are given 5 options for their life.  You could first allow them to perish or you can donate them to research so this child can be experimented on and have animal cells injected into them or for your child to die so that his or her cells can be injected into a person for a view of ‘healthcare’ or you can give them hope of being adopted to an adoptive family.  This option is the true option as no loving parent would ever consider harm to their child so why is the child at a younger stage in life considered acceptable to put them in such harm through death or death of experimentation.

The second point in options for an embryo has more detail then known.  What occurs as these children are donated to science is that scientists experiment on these children.  Sometimes, they take parts of their genes as they kill them and then they use the gene also from an animal and put the animals gene in the children’s genes.  

  As I found on a website about IVF which shows in the following segment as entitled and shared about, 

"Embryo quality issues and IVF implantation or failure potential

Poor quality 6-cell embryo on day 3

Blastocyst transfer is a relatively new IVF culture technique that allows us to maintain high IVF pregnancy rates when only transferring 1 or (usually) 2 embryos to the mother. This results in almost no risk for triplets." These two comments degrade the gift of life!  First to consider a child “qualified” and to state regards to having two children implanted to say, “This results in almost no risk for triplets.”(  
There is a loving ethical answer. You can donate your embryos for adoption! This is the most ethical response to act upon given the options for the embryos that you have.  This life needs protection and just as your 5 year old needs your protection so does this child and if you feel personally that you cannot care for this child then allowing this child to be loved by a family who can provide those needs is the greatest gift you can give to your child!  NEDC provides families with ability to donate their embryos and to have these embryos then adopted to loving families when the families choose their embryo.:) Also embryo adoption allows families to adopt children.
There are side effects to IVF such as:
post-traumatic stress and depression from failed IVF cycles, children who were created through IVF struggling with ‘survivors guilt as they learn that their siblings were either frozen indefinitely or destroyed.”(Live
If you are considering either please look up Dr. Anthony Caruso, a former IVF doctor, whose story is teaching society what IVF truly is.

As we wrap up IVF’s reality I want to share with you some quotes and a story from a former IVF doctor sharing about a story of a woman who was chosen to have a ‘cerclage placed in order to prevent her child from being born too soon, but she asked her doctor to remove it because she felt she could just try again. She was okay with her child dying, because she would be able to do another round of IVF and create another one.”(Live

Pregnancy Resource Centers

Dear PRCs, I am a former NICU baby who was diagnosed with a poor in utero diagnosis. After three doctors told my parents to abort me and my parent’s strong fight for my life 18 years later, I am currently working on a pro life legislative bill and have two ministries.:) 
This is for pregnancy centers or others also involved in pro life in various ways!

IN order for more lives to be saved, please read the following. I wanted to mention some important aspects to possibly add to your center.:):)

1st: Education videos: If I have not already talked to you about Dr. Levatino’s, a former abortionist, abortion videos I highly recommend them. They are done with Lila Rose, the president of Live Action.:) These videos are extremely well done and factually done. Dr. Levatino speaks from a kind, caring and compassionate manner in these videos. These videos are presenting to these women through a kind heart and manner what abortion is. They are hearing about abortion from a man who did abortions himself.  He has a position to state about what abortion is as he has done them and understands.  He is a wonderful and kind man who cares. These videos are powerfully used!
 Dr. Levatino is so being used by God to convey the realities of abortion and my mom has shown these videos to several of her abortion-minded clients, and the impact has been huge. We only show these videos to women who are considering abortion (AM or AV AND those who have never had an abortion before). Each video teaches women about the truth of what abortion is. 
I know the most common abortions that we see at least at our center are the pill.
He has a pill video and more:
Here is the official website:

Secondly adding “poor in utero pregnancies” on your website: I find it extremely important that if you do not already market on your websites about being there for women who have a poor in utero diagnosis, I highly recommend so. I was on an abortion clinic website and they advertised themselves as "caring for families who have a poor in utero diagnosis." We must counter that and show families that WE are here for them. What I read on their website was horrid. They made themselves sound like a "loving and caring" place for families whose children are sick, and they offer abortions as the “solution.”  We must specify the poor in utero diagnosis so that they know they can come to PRCs. 

Thirdly, PRCs need to be open when abortion clinics are: We can never risk a missed opportunity for mothers and children to be saved because PRCs are not open when abortion clinics are. The PRCs are often closed during times when abortion clinics are open as during the holiday times and this is quite detrimental. If we are closed, they will go get an abortion. It is vital that these women know they can come and see us at anytime! I understand that staff need a vacation and humbly think in my opinion that we can rally the troops by getting volunteers to come in during the holiday break time vacation and even new advocates to shadow to see clients. I find it vital. If we are not open these women will have an abortion. As Abby Johnson a former Planned Parenthood director states about holiday break time vacation as I echoed, “I learned today that many pregnancy centers are closing down for the next two weeks. Okay. I get that people want a break or whatever. (my words change: need a holiday vacation.) But guys, the abortion clinics are NOT closing down. They will continue to perform abortions the days before and after Christmas. If they are open, then we MUST be open. We have got to find our sense of urgency here. And thank you to the PRCs who are remaining open during this holiday season!” Imagine a life saved the day after Christmas because our doors were opened! Imagine.... If abortion clinics are closed we are too, but if they are open we are too.
Lastly: I would be very excited to provide you all with a 100% pro life doctors referral list for your Pregnancy Resource Center so that you make sure that the doctors these women see when leaving you are affirming life as well and not telling them to have an abortion for any reason!:)

God bless you all,

Rachel Mary G.
