Planned Parenthood and NDSU have teamed up AGAIN

By | North Dakota | No Comments

Planned Parenthood is using the backdoor to enter North Dakota schools by offering a free workshop to classroom teachers! Their plan is obvious – what better way to influence children but through building a relationship with teachers. North Dakota State University (NDSU) is offering the workshop, Safe Spaces, a professional development class for sex education teachers. Planned Parenthood is even offering scholarships to teachers so that the NDSU Professional Development credit is covered by Planned Parenthood. Classes will be held June 3-4 in Dickinson, June 6-7 in Fargo, and June 13-14 in Grand Forks. The classes are open to any teacher with students kindergarten through grade 12!

More about Safe Spaces
The Safe Spaces course is offered through a partnership between NDSU and Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota. It is advertised as a “comprehensive, medically-accurate, and age appropriate” course. You can watch Minnesota legislators debate the Safe Spaces curriculum here.

The materials recommended in Safe Spaces do not belong in the classroom! Under the category of “Books for Children,” Planned Parenthood’s recommended curriculum for children as young as ten years old includes, It’s Perfectly Normal by Robbie Harris, a former member of Planned Parthood’s National Board of Advocates. This book for elementary aged children contains graphic drawings of female and male anatomy and cover topics such as sexual intercourse (vaginal, oral and anal sex), abortion, and homosexuality.

Together, again, we can stop the Safe Spaces courses from taking place!
Just last year, CWA and other pro-family voices spoke out against the Safe Spaces teacher training workshops that were scheduled to held in Mandan, Minot, and Jamestown. Because you took action, two of the three events were canceled

Please Take Action:
1. Contact NDSU President, Dean Bresciani, at [email protected] and ask him to cancel all Safe Spaces classes and to discontinue NDSU’s affiliation with Planned Parenthood. Others to contact in President Bresciani’s office:

  • Chief of Staff Chris Wilson: [email protected]  and (701) 231-6409
  • Executive Assistant to the President Stephanie Wawers: [email protected] and(701) 231-7211
  • Associate Executive Assistant to the President LaDonna DeGeldere: [email protected] and (701) 231-8522

2. Considering sharing the additional Planned Parenthood talking points at the bottom of the page when talking with NDSU.
3. Forward this on to friends and family and ask them to both pray and take action.

Please Pray! Join me in thanking God for opportunities to protect our children from harm. “He who follows righteousness and mercy finds life, righteousness, and honor.”  Proverbs 21:21

Planned Parenthood is the last group we want teaching our teachers how to teach our children! This issue is so very important!  We must speak up and keep Planned Parenthood away from our students!

Thank you for your commitment to both prayer and action.

Linda Thorson
State Director
CWA of North Dakota

Additional Planned Parenthood talking points:
There is a well-documented connection between Planned Parenthood and sex traffickers. When sex trafficked victims become pregnant as a result of their abuse, they are often coerced into having abortions.  Planned Parenthood has been caught on film helping pimps obtain abortions for their victims, including minors!  The only thing Planned Parenthood did to fix the situation after it was made public was train employees how to avoid making incriminating statements, not how to identify victims of sex trafficking. You can read more about this in the January 2018 Washington Times story.

Planned Parenthood has also been known to teach acceptance of BDSM (bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadomasochism) to our youth.

CWA of Georgia Event Updates (Past and Present)

Future Events: Feisty & Feminine Workshops

We are finalizing our plans for multiple, statewide Feisty & Feminine workshops. Our Feisty & Feminine workshops will embrace our God-given femininity, intertwined with a little feisty, to deliver a message of strength and redemption. We must not allow ourselves to be marginalized any longer because of our beliefs or values. God has gifted each of us with unique talents, ideas, and passions, and it’s our duty to be empowered and deliver a message that combats the destructive message from the left.

Watch for more information to come!

Future Events:
During the past few months, Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Georgia hosted and co-hosted three informative and inspiring events.  We are excited about how the Lord is using CWA of Georgia in the fight for faith, family, and freedom!  Here are some highlights and pictures from the events.

Counting the Cost: The Price of Faith in America Today

On April 29, organizations from around the state hosted Counting the Cost: The Price of Faith in America Today, a lunch event that highlighted the ever-increasing infringement of government on religious freedom in America. Over 100 people attended the event to hear the keynote speaker, Barronelle Stutzman. The 72-year-old floral artist who owns and operates Arlene’s Flowers in Richland, Washington, has been under attack by the government and American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) because her Christian values conflicted with a certain client. Hearing Barronelle’s inspiring story of faith and perseverance left an incredible impact on all who attended.

Attendees also heard from Alliance Defending Freedom’s (ADF) attorneys, Matt Sharp and Kellie Fiedorek. ADF represented Barronelle in Court and Sharp and Fiedorek provided an update on her case. They detailed other religious freedom cases they are representing, including the pending case of Kevin Cochran, former Atlanta Fire Chief.

100 No More: Human Rights Prayer Rally and Celebration

On June 10, CWA of Georgia hosted the 100 No More: Human Rights Prayer Rally and Celebration event.  African-American community leaders and pro-life advocates gathered in front of the Marietta Planned Parenthood clinic for a powerful time of prayer for mothers, fathers, the unborn, and Planned Parenthood staff.  We heard from keynote speaker Dr. Alveda C. King, Catherine Davis, Charity Ana Cosio Lewis, and Sancha Smith. Each of these inspiring women called attention to the devastating impact that Planned Parenthood has had on the Black community, the Hispanic community, and millennials.

After praying in front of Planned Parenthood, we drove a short distance to a women’s pregnancy center. There we heard from the pregnancy center director and the important work that pregnancy centers play in saving the lives of the unborn.  Dr. Alveda King led the group in a time of prayer for the pregnancy center and for all the women who will walk through its doors.

Directions in American Education

On June 27, CWA of Georgia and American Principles Project co-hosted an informal presentation, titled Directions in American Education. Presenter Dr. J.R. Wilson, who has more than 30 years of experience working in public education, including working for the Georgia Department of Education, looked beyond the Common Core and gave an update on what is currently being imposed on our education system by the corporate/federal education reform trust. Dr. Wilson also gave an overview of the elements of “Future Ready Schools,” the newest trend in public and private education.

Join us on Saturday, June 10, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for a powerful time of prayer on behalf of minority babies being threatened by abortion and then a celebration of life.

Did you know October 16, 2016, was Planned Parenthood 100th anniversary?  100 years of death; tens of millions of babies have been murdered; millions of emotionally scarred mothers will never be the same.

This is an anniversary that Concerned Women for America (CWA) wished we’d never reached. That’s why CWA of Georgia is sponsoring a Human Rights Prayer Rally and Celebration. This is based on CWA national’s campaign – 100 No More: Defeating Sanger’s Dream, a human rights prayer rallies on behalf of minority babies. We not only want to shine a light on the dark intentions of Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger, we also want to celebrate the lives saved through our women’s crises pregnancy centers.

In an age and society where minority rights are at the forefront, how can we ignore Sanger’s true intentions any longer? That’s why CWA of Georgia invites you to come hear Dr. Alveda King, founder of Alveda King Ministries and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; Catherine Davis, Founder and President of The Restoration Project; Sancha Smith, CWA of Louisiana State Director; Charity Ana Cosio Lewis, Freelance Writer, and other invited guests.

Rally Location: (10:00 a.m.) Planned Parenthood, 220 Cobb Parkway N. #500, Marietta, GA 30062
Celebration Location: (11:00 a.m.) Women’s Pregnancy Center, 774 Roswell Street, Marietta, GA 30060

We will leave Planned Parenthood at 10:55 a.m. and drive the short distance to the pregnancy center (approximately one-half mile). There you will have an opportunity to hear from a representative of the center, interact with our speakers and enjoy some light refreshments. Dr. King will speak at both locations.

Update! Georgia Agencies Complete Review of Planned Parenthood Southeast

By | Georgia | No Comments

On July 26, 2015, Gov. Nathan Deal directed the Department of Community Health and the Department of Public Health to conduct a joint review of the clinics run by Planned Parenthood Southeast in Georgia to ensure that Planned Parenthood Southeast is not in the business of selling aborted baby body parts.  Both agencies have visited the five Georgia Planned Parenthood clinics and have released their findings. Both agencies report that the clinics are following current state law for the burial or interment of the remains of aborted babies.

The Horribly Gruesome Killing Fields Of Planned Parenthood – CWA of Georgia Responds

By | Georgia | No Comments

In 1984, the movie The Killing Fields was released in theaters across America. The movie depicted the murderous atrocities of the Khmer Rouge regime of Cambodia where it is estimated that the regime killed and then buried over one million of its citizens in the early 1970’s. During that same time period, 1973 to be exact, the United States legalized abortion, and it is now estimated that approximately 57,762,169 unborn American children have been killed at the hands of abortionists with the largest abortion provider, federally funded Planned Parenthood, leading the way.

A third undercover video was just released which graphically shows a Planned Parenthood doctor and technician picking through parts of aborted babies for the purposes of selling the harvested baby parts for profit. The killing fields of Cambodia pale in comparison to the horrific crimes happening daily at the nation’s largest abortion provider. Click here to view the video. Warning: parts of the video are very graphic.

Planned Parenthood betrays women and should not be receiving federal funds.  They must be investigated on both a national and state level immediately.

View what Penny Nance, Concerned Women for America CEO and President, had to say at a press conference in Washington, D.C., this week.

Silence is not an option!  We must stop those who are selling baby body parts. Take action today!

#1 – Sign CWA’s Defund Planned Parenthood petition.

#2 – Contact Sen. Isakson and Sen. Perdue and thank them for co-signing S.1881, a bill that will defund Planned Parenthood. Thank them for signing onto a letter calling for a federal investigation of the actions of Planned Parenthood.  Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Georgia) (202) 224-3643/E-mail/Twitter, Sen. David Perdue (R-Georgia) 202-224-3521/E-mail/Twitter

#3 – Contact your member of Congress and ask him for a congressional investigation into the practices of Planned Parenthood and an immediate defunding of Planned Parenthood. Click here to find your member of Congress.

Georgia Update

Last week many of you responded to my e-mail request to contact Gov. Nathan Deal and thank him for directing the Department of Community Health and the Department of Public Health to conduct a joint review of the clinics run by Planned Parenthood Southeast in Georgia to ensure that Planned Parenthood Southeast is not in the business of selling aborted body parts.  Thank you!

Immediately after the directive was issued, I reached out to the Governor’s office, the Department of Community Health and the Department of Public Health to express our support of the directive and to inquire of their progress on the review of Georgia’s Planned Parenthood clinics.  I will be e-mailing updates of the review process as I know them.

 Please pray:  Ask the Lord to give those who end up investigating on a national level and state level the wisdom to discover the truth and the courage to speak it.

For Life!

CWA of Georgia Thanks Gov. Nathan Deal and Asks You to Do the Same

By | Georgia | No Comments

A hearty thank you to those who responded to our last e-alert concerning the undercover video of a Planned Parenthood representative casually describing the harvesting of baby body parts.  Republican Members of Congress have called for a Congressional investigation.  If you haven’t contacted Georgia’s two senators and your representative, do it right now by clicking here for contact information.  The pressure needs to continue until an investigation is official. Encourage friends and family to do the same.

Georgia Governor Responds!  Gov. Nathan Deal has ordered a review of the Planned Parenthood clinics in Georgia. Click here for press release.  CWA of Georgia applauds Gov. Deal for his efforts to ensure that Planned Parenthood is not harvesting baby body parts in Georgia. We affirm Gov. Deal’s stand in wanting to protect the life of the unborn.

Take Action:  Contact Gov. Deal at 404-656-1776 or by e-mail and thank him for standing for the life of the unborn. Planned Parenthood apologists are claiming that Gov. Deal shouldn’t be wasting his time on this investigation, so please call TODAY and thank him for doing so.

Pray:  Pray for Gov. Deal as he continues to take a strong stand for the sanctity and dignity of all human life.  Pray for Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of Medical Services, who was seen on the video.  As you can be sure, the stress in her life has risen to a level she may not have ever experienced before.  May the Lord call her to the saving knowledge of His son Jesus Christ.

“For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” Romans 3:22b–26

Added note:  Some of you may have seen attempts by some liberals to deflect the claims made by those who produced the video.  Read our response, The Left has Left out Details (Again).

For Life!

CWA of Georgia SPEAKS OUT Against the Selling of Baby Body Parts

By | Georgia | No Comments

It is a federal felony to traffic human body parts!  This week a shocking video from an undercover investigation shows Dr. Deborah Nucatola describing how selling body parts of aborted children is part of the Planned Parenthood business plan!

View disturbing video.

Penny Nance, Concerned Women for America CEO and President,  

“Thirty to one hundred dollars; that’s the price Planned Parenthood appears to be profiting per dead baby. The recent video of Planned Parenthood’s senior director of Medical Services is just the latest in a laundry list of scandals, including aiding and abetting sex traffickers, giving sexual bondage instructions to children, cheating the government, sex-selection abortions, blatant racism, and the failure to report the molestation and rape of minors.

“There appears to be no depths to which this organization won’t stoop for money. When will the federal government wake up and follow the lead of the ten courageous governors who have cut funding to Planned Parenthood?

It’s time for Congress to say ‘Enough!’ If Planned Parenthood provides any worthy services, then they should have no problem raising funds like the thousands of other charities around this nation. Wake up America!”

Silence is not an option!  Take action and pray on behalf of unborn babies!

Take Action:  Contact Georgia’s U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative TODAY ask for a congressional investigation and an immediate defunding of Planned Parenthood.

Pray:  2 Timothy says, “For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”  We are reminded that it isn’t easy.  2 Corinthians 4:6-9 “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.  We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.”   We should not fear man. Man cannot take our soul.  We need to take heart during these times.  Have courage. Put on the full armor of God and speak boldly as we speak.  And having done all stand.

Dear Heavenly Father, the God of all creation, forgive us our trespasses. We will no longer be silent.  Boldly we speak the truth in love, knowing that Jesus is the victory.  Break the hearts of our leaders for what breaks Yours.  Destroy the walls of deception and shine the light on the evilness of abortion.  As we serve You our Risen Savior, we call on the surpassing power that is from You, not us. 

Silence is not an option.
