Pro-Aborts Quick to Criticize

Washington, DC ( — It doesn’t take long for abortion advocates to come out swinging with attacks on Senator John McCain’s new running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Nancy Keenan, the president of NARAL, sent an email just hours after the selection saying she’s too pro-life for their taste.

“Now we know what we’re up against, with Sen. John McCain’s announcement moments ago that anti-choice Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is his pick for vice president,” she said.

“By picking Palin, we now risk having two anti-choice extremists who will push a rigid anti-choice agenda,” she griped. “Any remaining doubts about McCain’s extreme anti-choice position should be put to rest when voters learn about the combined anti-choice records of Palin and McCain.” (full story here)

VP Pick is absolutely thrilled with the announcement of Sarah Palin as John’s McCain’s Vice-Presidential candidate.  What a excellent choice!!!  Sarah is the current Governor of Alaska.  Prior to governorship she was the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska for two terms.  When elected she became the first woman to be Alaska’s governor and the youngest governor in Alaskan history at 42. 


Sarah is strongly pro-life and belongs to Feminist for Life of America, a leading pro-woman, pro-life organization that has championed reducing abortions by helping pregnant and parenting students with financial aid and other resources.  


Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd are the parents of five children.  Her fifth child Trig was born with Down syndrome.  As many as 80 percent of unborn children diagnosed with Down syndrome become victims of abortion, but ending the pregnancy was not an option the Palin’s would take.  The day after Trig’s birth, Todd & Sarah Palin released the following statement, “Trig is beautiful and already adored by us.  We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives.  We have faith that every baby is created for good purpose and has potential to make this world a better place.  We are truly blessed.” is so very encouraged by such a strong pro-life Vice-Presidential candidate!!!  

Don’t Forget!

Elevens Everywhere

Elevens seem to be popping up everywhere:

  • Planned Parenthood’s building number is 6511 on W 41st Street.  If you add 6 and 5, you get 11.  There are two 11’s in their address!
  •’s PO Box is 461…that also adds up to 11!
  • The month Initiated Measure 11 will be voted on is November.  That is the 11th month! 

Maybe it is a weird coincidence.  Or maybe…  😉

The Continuing Healing

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth, only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.” – C.S. Lewis

Below is another exerpt taken from the book Redeeming a Father’s Heart.  If you haven’t already, read this post for more on how abortion affects men.

In my eyes my future remained clear. One of us was in love and it wasn’t me. I knew what needed to be done. I bought into the multitude of lies that our society so eagerly spread and my government and lawmakers so readily deemed “best” for me. No problem, no guilt. All I had to do was write an inexpensive check and that “problem” would easily go away.

            I was looking for comfort when I should have been seeking the truth. Instead, I regurgitated the same lies and used all the common excuses to not live up to my responsibility; I was in college, too young (she was even younger), no money, in no way ready to be a father, and again, I knew she and I had no future together.

            The lie that sealed the deal? It’s only a “blob of tissue. It’s not a baby until sometime later,” I was told. However, no one could tell me exactly when that time was. This dehumanizing of the baby was the biggest lie of all. This final lie closed the deal to how I was able to completely disconnect from the truth of what was about to take place and decide to have the abortion.




Measure speaks of who we are: Vote yes on Initiated Measure 11

Initiative Eleven is a reflection of who we are as a people in South Dakota, a reflection of our values and love of life.  It speaks to our culture that cherishes children and the true rights of their mothers. It speaks to the sovereignty of South Dakota that chooses to assert its own values and have those values reflected in the laws of our State. An abortion terminates the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being.  Our state was the first state in our nation to require an abortion doctor to disclose this biological fact to a pregnant mother considering submitting to an abortion. The entire U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that it is proper for our state to require disclosure of that fact.  In the public hearings over the past five years before our legislature and a special Abortion Task Force, almost 2,000 women testified, in person, or in writing, about the pain, despair, isolation, depression and even attempted suicides resulting from their realization that they were involved in terminating the life of their own child.  The pain of these women was so profound that even the hardest of hearts were moved to compassion and tears.  Initiative 11 was drafted by South Dakota’s Attorney General and a panel of 11 legal experts.  It is well thought out, and well crafted to meet the wishes of the majority of South Dakotans.  It eliminates the use of abortion as a means of “birth control.”  While many would like to see a prohibition on abortion without exceptions, this bill reflects the will of the majority to limit use of abortions only to those circumstances where the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, or where there is a substantial risk of serious permanent injury or death to the mother. A mother’s unique relationship with her child during pregnancy is the most intimate, most important, and one most worthy of protection.  The unique bond between mother and child creates a human relationship that may be the most rewarding in all of life. As the South Dakota Abortion Task Force wrote in 2005, we have a duty to choose life over death; the mother’s beautiful interest in her child’s life over its destruction; the protection of innocent children over the misguided philosophies and trends in social thought that come and go. If there are any self-evident and universal truths that can act for the human race as a guide or light in which social and human justice can be grounded, they are these: that life has intrinsic value; that each individual human being is unique and irreplaceable; that the cherished role of a mother and her relationship with her child, at every moment of life, has intrinsic worth and beauty; and that this relationship, its unselfish nature and its role in the survival of the race is the touchstone and core of all civilized society.  Its denigration is the denigration of the human race. This relationship,  its beauty, its survival, its benefits to the mother and child, its benefits to society, all rest in the self-evident truth that a mother is not the owner of her child’s life – she is the trustee of it.  Vote “yes” on 11 Nov. 4. Give South Dakota’s unborn a voice.
