Woman Comes Home And Finds Brick Through Window- Then Sees 5 Shocking Words

A leader in the pro-life movement arrived home Sunday night to find a brick had been thrown through a window of her home, with a threatening message attached to it.

Jill Stanek, national campaign chair for the pro-life group the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA), posted a picture of the note that was attached to the brick on Twitter.

Emily Buchanan, SBA’s executive vice president, wrote supporters in an email Monday that Stanek “has been travelling the country, working to build support for Susan B. Anthony List’s aggressive campaign strategy to elect a pro-life president this year and advance legislation like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would stop abortion after five months.”

“Jill knows more than anyone the pain these children experience. As a nurse she witnessed babies around this age struggle for life after they had been abandoned following a failed abortion,” Buchanan added. 

Last week, Stanek was among the signatories of a letter by several pro-life, conservative women urging Iowans to vote for any candidate other than Donald Trump in Monday’s Republican caucuses.

Stanek informed to Buchanan via email that “police are reporting the incident as ‘bias related’ and will be watching the house more. And we do have a motion detecting alarm system for intruders. I’m not worried. Just thought you’d want to know. Will be back at my desk tomorrow! More on fire than ever!

“Please do me a favor and keep Jill and our entire team in your prayers,” Buchanan wrote supporters. “As you can see, the brick landed right on top of Jill’s devotional table – perhaps a reminder of how important prayer is in this battle for life.”

Mandated Speech Precludes Freedom of Faith

California apparently gets the distinction between compelling and forbidding speech, because it is doing both.

Two newly enacted laws — AB 775 and SB 1172 — are subject to ongoing lawsuits, praise God, in actions brought by Pacific Justice Institute. The former orders pregnancy care center leaders to refer clients for free abortions, while the latter forbids counselors to treat young clients who desire healing from homosexual feelings.

Both laws are the fruit of legislative true believers – acolytes of political correctness on whom neither science nor informed compassion has any impact. These laws need to go down in flames; they are an assault on the freedom of those both for and against them.

Both address life issues in a most destructive way. The AB 775 law props up Planned Parenthood by directing business to the behemoth. In California there are too few doctors to perform 25 percent of the nation’s abortions in a state with 10 percent of its population. Imagine if Ford were ordered to refer clients to Chrysler. Escalate that to the point where life and death for some is at stake, and you see what this law does to the First Amendment and the cause of life itself.

As of this writing, U.S. District Judge Kimberly Mueller has ruled against the clinics protesting AB 775 (an appeal is pending). She agreed with the clinics that it threatens the First Amendment and will cause irreparable harm to them – the two needed elements for a successful legal action – but she overrode the Constitution because she decided the interest of the state in providing abortion information to clients justifies her constitutional bypass.

In other words, she says the state may trump the Constitution that provides and shapes its legitimacy.

The logic is not lost on legislators and Judge Mueller. Yet believing the right to kill a sacred trust, they sacrifice the Constitution to what they see as justice. Such is the obsession of true believers, the Joseph McCarthy’s of today. Like McCarthy in the ’50s they must be stopped by a body politic led by an aroused Body of Christ.

SB 1172 is another life issue, albeit concerning sexuality. It doesn’t get more horrific for adolescents than the sometime struggle over hetero versus homosexual attraction. California leads the nation in suicide; this is one of the prime triggers. Add in the reality that life is about free choice – for freedom Christ set us free is how Galatians 5 puts it – and you have a fundamental life challenge.

True believers in California are convinced Frankenstein-like therapists and bigoted family members are waiting to pounce on teens coming out as gay and are determined to protect them. But the law forbids treating young people who come out of self-professed need and consigns them to gay activists who maintain there is no way out – and should not be. This logical absurdity is lost on the true believers. The constitutional protection of the professional’s right to make informed and conscientious decisions on treatment based on expertise and conviction? That never seems to come up for zealots.

PJI first took the issue to the trial court as the free speech issue it is. They lost at both lower and appellate levels. They are back in court on free exercise; most or all of the counselors affected are Christians. They believe they have a strong case because the language of the law itself targets Christians.

Granted, films like 2014’s The Imitation Game illustrate the barbaric practices of a bygone era seeking to force homosexuals to adjust to a socially correct template for sexuality; some of them were driven to suicide. But that nightmare ended before the Vietnam War got seriously started.

Today the shoe is on the other foot and the bullies of our era are the gay activists and their allies. They, too, are driving the innocent to self-destruction in the militant dash to enforce conformity to a new and even more death-dealing social template. If the Constitution fails to guarantee life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – it is nothing but a piece of paper if good men and women do not rally for its integrity – it is time for the people to remember the ultimate source of our liberties and stand duty in the name of that source.

How do we do that – whether we stand against compelled speech or for speech forbidden?

The prayer piece is self-evident; if we are Christians we are to pray without ceasing per 1 Thessolonians 5:17 and pray blessing on our enemies per Romans 12:14. Standing – literally – with those impacted by these laws is just as evident for Christians or not, and splashed liberally throughout the New Testament letters. But the most important piece flows from the praying, the blessing and the standing.

The Great Commission calls us to go forth in the power of the Spirit not just to preach salvation for the humble, but to demonstrate the power of the submitted life. That is the core of teaching one another to obey all things He commands. That, and the challenge to be ambassadors of the very reconciliation we have received.

The takeaway is abundant life for ourselves and for those we once thought enemies.

 

Video: ‘Not Everyone Has a Choice’ Offers An Unheard Voice In Abortion Decision

An original video published by Western Journalism seeks to go to the heart of the abortion divide by providing a different perspective on the human cost involved.

The nation marked the 43rd anniversary of the controversial Roe v. Wade decision last Friday. Thousands braved winter storm warnings and blustery weather in Washington, D.C., to make the point, once again, that the lives of the unborn deserve protection.

In the video, entitled Not Everyone Has A Choice, the viewer sees a heart monitor and hears the voice of a young child as a lullaby plays in the background.

“Hi mommy, it’s me. Are you checking on me again?,” a little girl inside the womb innocently asks. “I’ve grown since you saw me last. I can wiggle my fingers.”

The sounds of a doctor’s office can be heard.

The child’s voice becomes a little fearful, when she realizes this doctor’s visit feels different than the others.

“You seem nervous. Is something wrong? Are you mad at me?,” the girl wonders. “I don’t like what’s going on. Don’t let them hurt me,” she says. 

More sounds of medical equipment moving around in the background can be heard.

“Why is this happening? Help me mommy! Stop!,” the girl pleads, as her heart rate goes up rapidly.

Soon, thereafter the video comes to an end.

The video’s creator informed Western Journalism the child’s voice heard in it was recorded at different times, in mixed segments, so the little girl did not know the story she was telling

“I think this video is important to watch and share with your friends, because it’s talking about a subject in our culture that is hard to talk about,” said Liftable Media CEO Patrick Brown. “It’s hard to watch, but there have been more than 50 million abortions since Roe v. Wade and those are people who were not able to live their lives.”

Brown also noted the goal of Liftable Media (Western Journalism’s parent company) is to “promote positive cultural change.”

As reported by Western Journalism, Pensacola OB/GYN Dr. William Lile travels the country informing people what exactly is involved in abortions. Lile purchased an abortion practice in his area 16 years ago and closed it. He now uses the instruments from the facility to demonstrate just how the procedures are performed.

Among other illustrations, the doctor brings an abortion machine, which is about the size of dishwasher to his talks. He hooks the suction tube of the machine to an empty steel can of paint thinner to demonstrate the incredible force it uses to remove unborn babies from the womb.

In addition to the abortion machine illustration, Lile incorporates video and ultrasound images into his program. “A lot of people just do not realize how well developed the baby is on the inside. So we’ll show them videos and ultrasounds of the baby’s heart beating 28 days after conception,” the doctor said.

Lile also said he sees great hope in the youth. “The group I have the most hope in as far as really changing hearts and minds here in the United States are the kids. They are visual learners … They can see the heart beating 28 days after conception. They can see the fingers moving. They no longer believe that it’s just an inanimate blob of tissue.”

Watch: Pro-Life Doctor Silences Liberals With Horrifying Demonstration Using Abortion Tools

Friday marks the 43rd anniversary of the watershed Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, and one doctor has committed himself to educating the American public by using the abortion’s tools from a practice he bought out over a dozen years ago.

“Dr. William Lile is a board certified physician in obstetrics and gynecology and the former OB/GYN department chair at Sacred Heart Hospital who has delivered over 3,000 babies. He is also the medical advisor for Priests for Life,” CNS News reports.

The Pensacola doctor purchased an abortion practice in his area 16 years ago and is using the instruments from the facility to demonstrate just how abortions are performed in the first, second and third tri-trimesters.

“He was the largest provider of abortion services for the tri-county area,” Lile told CNSNews.com. “We stopped all abortions on day one, all referrals on day one, and we had him sign a restrictive covenant where he could not practice any medicine in the tri-county area at all for the next 24 months, which pretty much pushed him into retirement and he moved back to Sweden.

“And we saw a dramatic decrease in the number of abortions in those three counties for the next several years until other providers came into the area,” the doctor said.

To illustrate how the procedures are performed to audiences nationwide, Lile brings an abortion machine, which is about the size of dishwasher, and he hooks it up to an empty steel can of paint thinner. The machine sucks with such force that it crushes the can. See video below: 

Lile told CNS that he is supportive of the series of undercover videos that the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released last year that revealed just what goes on behind closed doors at Planned Parenthood.

The OB/GYN doctor thought there would be even more of a public outcry, with change coming quickly, presumably including the defunding of Planned Parenthood.

“When there wasn’t a huge response, I realized that this is a spiritual battle. When the lives of a million babies a year are being taken, and 55 million babies’ lives since 1973, and you can see the obvious videos about the sale of those babies’ parts, and there’s not a dominant outcry from the public, that’s when you realize this is a disease of the heart,” Lile said. 

The pro-life advocate has put together a 60 minute video called God’s Miracle of Life to show how doctors used ultrasound and even cameras in the womb to diagnose and treat unborn babies as early as 18 weeks.

“A lot of people just do not realize how well developed the baby is on the inside. So we’ll show them videos and ultrasounds of the baby’s heart beating 28 days after conception,” the doctor said. 

Lile sees great hope in the youth. “The group I have the most hope in as far as really changing hearts and minds here in the United States are the kids. They are visual learners … They can see the heart beating 28 days after conception. They can see the fingers moving. They no longer believe that it’s just an inanimate blob of tissue.

“So my hope is in this upcoming generation. I really see the pendulum swinging,” he said.

WATCH The 1999 Video Of Donald Trump That’s Spreading Like Wildfire – It’s NOT Good

Old words have come back with new implications as a 1999 video of Donald Trump shows him taking a far different position on abortion than he has expressed in his campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

I’m pro-life and I have been pro-life,” Trump said in a January 2015 interview. “It’s an issue and a strong issue.”

Yet in a 1999 interview with Tim Russert of NBC, Trump said something very different.

“I’m very pro-choice,” Trump said in the video, now making the rounds on the Internet. “I hate the concept of abortion. I hate it, I hate everything it stands for. I cringe when I hear people debating the subject. … But I am strongly for choice, and yet I hate the concept of abortion.”

Asked if he would ban abortions or the gruesome partial-birth abortions, Trump replied that he would not.

“No, I would — I would — I am pro-choice in every respect, as far as it goes. I just hate it.”

In wording that carries an extra echo after Trump’s clash with Republican rival Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at Thursday night’s primary debate, Trump ascribed his feelings at least partially to being “from New York.”

“I grew up in New York, and worked and everything else, in New York City,” he told Russert.

The 1999 video had a brief return to prominence in 2011 when it appeared Trump might run for president. By then, he said he had changed his position. He was grilled about the change.

“Evangelicals do want to feel secure that they’re going to have a nominee that’s going to at least be solid on those issues, those social issues. Someone that’s not just going to cut and move on,” he was asked by CBN News’ David Brody.

“One thing about me, I’m a very honorable guy. I’m pro-life, but I changed my view a number of years ago,” Trump said.

One of the reasons I changed — one of the primary reasons — a friend of mine’s wife was pregnant, in this case married. She was pregnant and he didn’t really want the baby. And he was telling me the story,” Trump. “He was crying as he was telling me the story. He ends up having the baby and the baby is the apple of his eye. It’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to him. And you know here’s a baby that wasn’t going to be let into life. And I heard this, and some other stories, and I am pro-life.”

“So those stories did change you, they came around and changed you?” Brody asked.

“They changed me. Yeah, they changed my view as to that, absolutely,” Trump responded.

In an April interview with the Des Moines Register, Trump revisited the subject of his changing opinion.

“If you look at it, I said, ‘It really, really troubles me, and it really, really bothers me, the whole concept of abortion.’ This was years ago, and even then it really bothered me, but I went on the other side of the line,” Trump said.

“As I’ve grown older, as I’ve seen things happen in life, I’ve changed my views — and others have also,” he said.
