Capitol Hill Brief — Disparate Foundings

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

The founding of Planned Parenthood vs. Community Health Centers couldn’t be more different.

Planned Parenthood was founded under the philosophy that the only way to help the poor was to stop them from reproducing.  It’s this offensive attitude that lead to Planned Parenthood becoming the largest abortion provider in America.

By contrast, Community Health Centers came out of the Civil Rights movement as a way to reduce poverty and serve minority populations.  This model produced tremendous health improvements in these communities — and continues to do so today.  This is the model for true help and empowerment for those in need — a model Planned Parenthood scorns in favor of abortion-on-demand.

Capitol Hill Brief — Abortion and Religion

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

I have some hard news.  Thirty-seven percent of women obtaining abortions identified as evangelical or Catholic.

Though self-identification may be a poor form of measuring religious engagements, these findings show that women getting an abortion are willing to be thought of as religious, but are still willing to get an abortion.

This is a tragic failure of the Church to truly educate women on what it means to trust God’s providence and forgiveness in difficult circumstances.

What can we do to help our churches teach pro-life values and support girls who get pregnant?  I think this is a fundamental question that every Christian church has to face, and I hope you will take it in prayer today.

Capitol Hill Brief — Women Won’t Lose

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

What does Planned Parenthood actually do? Mammograms? Nope.

What about prenatal care? Actually, only 8% of their clinics do that.

They boast about GYN exams and STD testing, but those are available through the more than 11,000 community health centers in America.

In fact Planned Parenthood only does about 1% of the nation’s pap smears and only about 2% of breast exams.  Yet they perform a full third of the nation’s abortions.

Abortion accounts for 86% of their non-governmental revenue.   94 out of 100 of their pregnant patients get one.

It’s time to stop funding them with our tax dollars.

Capitol Hill Brief — Struggling for Life

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

Listen carefully to what this Planned Parenthood official says they do with an unborn child that is born as a result of a botched abortion:

[Audio Clip] Florida State Rep. Jim Boyd: It’s just really hard for me to even ask you this question, because I’m almost in disbelief. If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that’s struggling for life?

[Audio Clip] Alisa LaPolt Snow, lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates: Um … Well we believe … we believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the fam- … to the woman, her family, and the physician.

The Florida representatives can’t believe their ears, but this is who Planned Parenthood is and why our tax dollars should not be funding them.

Capitol Hill Brief — Every Heart Beating

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

I remember hearing the heartbeat of my own children for the first time.

[Heartbeat audio]

Did you know that we can detect a child’s heartbeat beginning at 21 days? And can be heard by monitor at 8-10 weeks!   At 7-12 weeks old, an unborn baby has brain waves and developing features like a nose, mouth, and ears!  At this age in the womb, they can even hiccup and respond to touch!

Sadly, most abortions occur during this time — between 7-12 weeks gestation.

Just because an unborn child is small, doesn’t mean they aren’t worthy of life.  Protecting the unborn should remain a top priority for our nation’s laws and culture.  Let us protect every beating heart.

Capitol Hill Brief — Broad Support

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act should not be a left or right issue. Even many pro-choice people support a 20-week ban on abortion.

Recent polls by Quinnipiac, National JournalHuffington Post, NBC News/Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post/ABC News all revealed: A majority of Americans support limiting abortion after 20-weeks’ gestation.

Sixty percent of women think abortion after that point should be illegal.

That’s overwhelming support that should not be ignored or politicized by Capitol Hill any longer.  Our senators should move as quickly as possible on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Capitol Hill Brief — Bad Company

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

According to medical experts, a baby’s pain system at 20-weeks’ gestation is fully developed; the baby’s higher-level, pain-modifying systems have barely begun to develop, leaving them to feel excruciating pain.

That is big reason why the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is so desperately needed.  What we have in our country is nothing short of a humanitarian crisis.

Did you know that the United States is one of only seven nations that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks?  The other six nations are Canada, China, the Netherlands, North Korea, Singapore, and Vietnam.

We must show compassion and enact this legislation as soon as possible.

Capitol Hill Brief — Pain-Capable

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act exposes the left for their radicalism on abortion.  The legislation only deals with the unborn child at 20 weeks — that’s five months!

I told you yesterday that at five months, a baby has fingernails, her own unique fingerprints, eyebrows, and eyelashes.

But did you know that there is substantial evidence that they can already feel excruciating pain? Prominent neuroscientists, pain specialists, and two past presidents of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as numerous medical studies confirm it. Babies visibly and abruptly react to pain at this stage. We must protect them.

Capitol Hill Brief — Boy, Girl, or Statistic?

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is one of the most crucial pieces of pro-life legislation since the passage of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.  This legislation not only protects babies who are five months in the womb and can feel excruciating pain, but also protects women who are at an increasingly greater risk of experiencing the harmful effects of a late-term abortion.

At five months, a baby has fingernails, its own unique fingerprints, eyebrows, and eyelashes.  A baby can suck its thumb and recognize its mother’s voice.

Friends, we must ban together and protect the sanctity of life by passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Capitol Hill Brief — Love Saves Lives

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

“Love Saves Lives.” That is the theme of the 2018 March for Life, coming up on January 19.  I hope you are already making plans to attend.  Concerned Women for America is always front and center at the March, standing up for the unborn and their mothers.

But this public display of our support for life is accompanied by much work at every level of government, both at the state and federal level.

Right now, we are working hard to see Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act passed by the U.S. Senate next year. This very important pro-life bill will prohibit abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Please help us to pray for this important legislation.
