Capitol Hill Brief — Prayer and Action

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

 

What was my focus as I spoke to the tens of thousands of women gathered here in Washington, D.C., to pray for our nation?  The sin of abortion.  We repented before the Lord, and we asked for His mercy upon us.  I even led them in a chant for “no more abortion”:

[Audio Clip] Penny Nance: No more abortion! No more abortion! No more abortion!

But in true Concerned Women for America fashion, I also asked them take action, as I want to ask you also to do.  We must call our senators and ask them to vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

United in prayer and action, we can truly see an end to the evil of abortion in our lifetime.

Capitol Hill Brief — United As One

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Religious Liberty, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

I told you yesterday about a powerful prayer event held in Washington, D.C., where tens of thousands of women gathered to pray for our nation.

I was there with my good friend, Alveda King, the niece of American civil rights leader Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and I was moved when Alveda prayed passionately for racial unity.

She called us back to the Scripture in Acts 17:26, where Paul tells us God “has made from one blood every nation of men. …”

It was a powerful moment for me to look at the crowd and see thousands of women from all racial and ethnic backgrounds, joining hands, united as one. This is what Concerned Women for America strives for. We believe in prayer and action.

Capitol Hill Brief — Why a 20-Week Ban?

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

 

Are you still not sure what “20 weeks of gestation” means when it comes to pregnancy and abortion? Here’s an excerpt from the “15 to 20 weeks of pregnancy” video at BabyCenter.com.

[Audio Clip] Between 15 and 20 weeks, your baby will more than double in size. His nerves are connecting his brain to the rest of his body. Sensory development is picking up speed. Your baby’s brain is designating special areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. At this stage, your baby may be able to hear your heartbeat and voice, so read aloud or sing a happy tune.

They can hear, and they can feel.

Capitol Hill Brief — An Impassioned Plea

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

 

Representative Martha Roby from Alabama spoke passionately for the unborn as the House considered the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Here’s a clip:

[Audio Clip] Rep. Martha Roby: We’re here to speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves; we’re here to defend those who can’t defend themselves. Our bill seeks to do this by restricting abortions after 20 weeks, or at the sixth month of pregnancy, the point at which research shows the unborn baby can feel pain. What’s the difference between a baby born at six months outside the womb and a baby at six months inside the womb?

Now it’s time for senators to stand and speak for those who can’t speak for themselves.

Capitol Hill Brief — The Power of Unity

By | Blog, Capitol Hill Brief, Religious Liberty, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

 

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of dining with the president at the White House, alongside a small group of conservative leaders. It was a great opportunity to make your voice heard at the highest levels of government. You can rest assured I spoke to him about all our concerns and had the opportunity to hear his vision for the country, too.

Such an opportunity does not come by luck. It is a result of divine Providence, but also a great testament to you and to the impact we can have when conservative women work together to lift their voices in unison.

So, if you’ve not joined Concerned Women for America yet, today is the day, and we need you!

Graham-Cassidy Bill: Last Chance for Health Care Reform

By | News and Events, Planned Parenthood, Press Releases, Sanctity of Life, Senate Legislative Updates, Uncategorized | No Comments

Washington, D.C. Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana) as well as Sens. Dean Heller (R-Nevada) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) have teamed up and introduced a bill that gives power over health care decisions back to the states and the American people. The Graham-Cassidy health care bill is the Senate’s last chance to pass health care reform with a simple majority vote through the reconciliation process in 2017. The Senate has a hard deadline of September 30.

Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America issued the following statement in response:

“Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee is proud to support the Graham-Cassidy health care bill. It is time to make good on the promise made to the American people to end ObamaCare.

“There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution for health care. Sens. Graham and Cassidy have provided a bill that gives power back to the states.

“Improving health care means protecting life at all stages, and Graham-Cassidy does just that. This legislation ensures that no funds within the bill will be, or can be, used to subsidize plans that provide abortion coverage &emdash; something every other bill has failed to address. Most importantly, it redirects Medicaid funds away from Planned Parenthood and gives them to federally qualified health centers which provide care for the whole woman.

“All the funds provided through this legislation will go through CHIP (Child Health Insurance Programs) &emdash; a bipartisan effort to ensure underprivileged children are able to receive healthcare. It is time to give Americans real care instead of “insurance” that is not worth the plastic on which it is printed.

“While it may not solve every problem plaguing the American health care and insurance industry, Graham-Cassidy is a vast improvement over the status quo, providing momentum that enables other issues to be addressed.

“The American people have been waiting eight years to be given back their right to make their own health care choices.

“Now is the time to make good on the promise made to the American people.”

Planned Parenthood hooks up with OkCupid. Guess what this cynical partnership is really about?

By | Blog, News and Events, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

It’s about time that Planned Parenthood got involved in the dating market. They have already reaped the benefits of profiting off of the sex toy industry, the genitalia-designed candy industry, and, of course, they make boatloads of money every year as the abortion industry’s leading provider. They have been missing out for years by not jumping headfirst into the online dating world.

But that has finally changed. The dating website OkCupid, which has admitted in the past to doing social experiments on their users, has partnered with Planned Parenthood.  Those who want to find a date on the website will have to answer this question: “Should the government defund Planned Parenthood?” If they answer in the negative, then a cute pink badge will appear on their profile photo along with the hashtag #IStandWithPP.

The partnership’s goal is to solve the problem of finding true feminists on the dating website. Because only true feminists support the right to end innocent lives in the womb. Whoops! Off-topic.

The meetings that preceded this partnership must have been entertaining. It probably went something like this: groups of young women lamenting over drinks about the lack of feminist men, or women perhaps, on online dating, and someone coming up with the brilliant suggestion to screen dating applicants on their support for the nation’s largest abortion provider. Brilliant.

It’s only sad that this idea hadn’t come sooner, because young women could have avoided the losers online who only wanted to hook up with them, maybe pay for their abortion, and move on to the next young thing.

Because, really, that’s what this partnership is about, finding those men who want to use women for unencumbered sex and walk away, no matter the consequences.

The better and more revealing question for OkCupid would be: “Would you support a woman you get pregnant and step up as a father, taking responsibility for the results of your actions?” Or, since 86 percent of most single Americans say they want to get married, what about, “Are you hoping to find a woman to love, marry and remain faithful to you for your entire life?” Those hashtags could have been way more enticing, like #realmen.

The Bro-Choice movement that began in 2013 −  yes, it’s a real thing − out of a Sarah Silverman idea, who probably loves OkCupid for this new partnership, because now they can figure out which girls have such low expectations and low self-esteem that they will require nothing from them.

Bro-choicer Ben Sherman railed against Texas legislation in 2013 that would ban late-term abortions in the state: “Your sex life is at stake. Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? Making abortion essentially inaccessible in Texas will add an anxiety to sex that will drastically undercut its joys. And don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by,” (emphasis his).

Oh no! Less casual sex, more responsibility, less late-term abortion; better bring in Planned Parenthood to fix that problem!

Knowing Planned Parenthood, this partnership with OkCupid is probably the first of many relationships for the abortion giant. They could easily help further divide the nation by getting involved in partnerships with cell phone companies (have the abortion giant on speed dial just in case of pregnancy), and crayon companies (“pink” is now called “Planned Parenthood Pink”).

The opportunities to embarrass themselves are endless. As for women who want real men − men who take responsibility for their actions and protect women, instead of selfish (you insert the word) that exploit them − watch out for that pink badge. Those aren’t the men who will cherish women. Women deserve better.

Capitol Hill Brief — The Value of Life

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

 

Friends, hear me loud and clear.  Every child (every person) has intrinsic value as created in the image of GOD.  Can you stop and consider that?

Every person you meet stands as a monument to Almighty GOD. How can we disregard any, because of race or creed or nationality or, as we’ve highlighted this week, because of a disability?

In the United States, 67 percent of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted.  Sixty-seven percent!

We can do better than this. Every parent I’ve ever met that has a child with Down syndrome child cannot cease to praise and give thanks to God for their child.

Capitol Hill Brief — A Worldwide Problem

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

 

All week, we’ve been highlighting the heartbreaking news that close to 100 percent of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome in Iceland are aborted.

But this tragedy is not just a problem for Iceland. It’s a worldwide issue, as the report acknowledges:

“Other countries aren’t lagging too far behind in Down syndrome termination rates. According to the most recent data available, the United States has an estimated termination rate for Down syndrome of 67 percent; in France it’s 77 percent; and Denmark, 98 percent.”

Have you ever had the privilege of looking into the beautiful eyes of a child with Down syndrome?

We must repent of this.
