What Happened When A 16-Year-Old And His Pregnant Girlfriend Went To Abortion Clinic Is Going Viral

A four-sentence story, along with a picture of a child whose teenage parents chose life, has gone viral.

Over 720,000 have “liked” the posting on the popular Facebook photo blog Humans of New York, which reads:

“I was 16 when my girlfriend got pregnant. We went to the abortion clinic on 59th Street. We filled out the papers and everything. Then right before we were called back, we looked at each other, and said: ‘Let’s get out of here.’”

The posting has also prompted nearly 10,000 comments; many of them consist of people sharing their stories of choosing life over abortion. Here is a sampling:

“*standing ovation* that’s what I call ‘courage.’” – Caroline

“My first child is adopted and she’s almost 3 months old. Her birth mom is one of the bravest people I know and she had made two appointments to go to an abortion clinic, but the both times she couldn’t go through with it. I’m forever grateful to her for giving us what we struggled for years to have.” – Erica.

“I was 16 and pregnant and also went to an abortion clinic. They did an ultrasound and turned the screen away from me. The doctor said I wasn’t allowed to see because it might make me change my mind. I started crying, sat up and said, “I think I just did, I’m keeping my baby.” Now my son is almost 9 years old, and I don’t know what I’d do without him.” – Daf

“October 16, 2000 will be a day I will never forget. I didn’t have the courage to walk out. Evan Alexander would have been 14. It took God a long time to heal my guilt and shame. Praying for you guys and your journey. Looking forward to holding my baby in heaven someday.” – Julie

“My then boyfriend, now husband and I did the same thing. I was on my way to the consultation appointment to abort and he called me as I walked out of my parents house and asked if I left yet. I told him no, and he said “don’t!” He heard a song on the radio on his way. A song that played at his aunt’s funeral. He said it was a sign that we need to keep the baby. I don’t think I have ever been more relieved in my life, then I was the moment I called the office and said I wouldn’t be coming in. Now she is 6 years old and we have a 3 year old boy and another little girl that will be born any day now. We are going strong ( going on 10 years) and we love our children with all of our hearts!” – Amanda

“Never heard of a woman who regretted not having an abortion.” – Christina

Perhaps, the recently released videos implicating Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the nation, in the sale of aborted babies’ body parts has made the story of this young New York couple choosing life resonate all the more.

President Ronald Reagan recognized that the practice of abortion was not consistent with the nation’s founding beliefs and issued a proclamation to highlight the problem. In it, he followed the same reasoning President Abraham Lincoln used when he pointed out the Supreme Court’s error of not recognizing the personhood of Americans of African descent in the Dred Scott case.

Reagan stated: “America has given a great gift to the world, a gift that drew upon the accumulated wisdom derived from centuries of experiments in self-government.” “Our gift is twofold,” he continued, “the declaration, as a cardinal principle of all just law, of the God-given, unalienable rights possessed by every human being; and the example of our determination to secure those rights and to defend them against every challenge through the generations.”

He noted that one of those inalienable rights, “as the Declaration of Independence affirms so eloquently, is the right to life.” He highlighted the “tragic and unspeakable results” since the decision in Roe v. Wade in 1973 – the loss of tens of millions of unborn lives. The decision, the president wrote, thus cheapened the nation’s respect for human life.

Based on these observations, the proclamation closed: “I, Ronald Reagan…do hereby proclaim and declare the unalienable personhood of every American, from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death.” Then, borrowing directly from the Emancipation Proclamation, he wrote: “‘Upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind and the gracious favor of Almighty God.’”

The History Of Evil – Planned Parenthood Writes A New Page

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” (Mark 21: 25-26)

This verse, taken from the gospel of Mark, has nothing to do with the last day’s wave of heart attacks; but rather it is a prophetic picture of the collective fainting of the hearts of men at the sudden, deep, and wholly unexpected changes that are rolling into human history.

This week, America is reeling from the videos in which officials from Planned Parenthood are negotiating the going price for the organs of unborn babies. We are witnessing something far more sinister than the ancient pagan world’s excursion into the offering of children to be burned in the fires of the idol known as Molech.

Today’s version of the “fires of Molech” is more sadistic and wicked than the ancients could have imagined, because it is now done under the cover of “law.” One man out of a band of nine cast the deciding vote for Roe v. Wade in 1973; and since then, the waves of unborn children have met their doom to the grand figure of 55 million and counting. This is the “law”? If Molech were actually a real and living deity – he would be delighted.

The rest of the world’s nations mandate abortions out of fear (overpopulation), but they are no slouches in honoring the idol of Molech. In China, it is reported that upwards of 336 million abortions have been performed since 1971. The latest twist from the orient is reportedly eating the remains of aborted babies in a soup which is thought to rejuvenate youthfulness in those who practice this kind of cannibalism.

Moderns think they have by means of consensus science arrived at the place where all superstitious allusions to God, gods, and deities have been properly abandoned, but have not noticed that they have thrown the baby out with the wash.

They scoff at intelligent design while scraping through the dirt of their archaeological digs with fine camel hair brushes and high expectations that they may at last uncover one of the millions of missing links for the species we now know as the human genus. Undaunted, they are willing to cling to the few remains, all of which have fallen into repute and total about 12 (depending on which scientist you ask) to answer the question of origins for an entire generation.

Even those who do not believe in God are beginning to ask if the camel hair brushes would not be more useful in brushing away the little mounds of dirt in the human psyche–not in search of an intelligent designer, but for intelligence itself.

Have Godliness and true wisdom now become fossils?

We can imagine the Apostle Paul kneeling in prayer and peering far ahead into the prophetic cloud of the will and counsel of God, only to turn and write of this generation in these most unflattering terms.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” (2 Tim 3: 1) After this, Paul concludes that the last day’s generation will be…“Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (2 Tim 3: 7)

Now, it seems that the political class is all wound up over which conservative candidate for president will come and sweep away the entire moral decline with his pen and cellphone.

I like the Donald too; but what makes us think that a loudmouth rich man, whose greatest accomplishments are the acquisition of gleaming skyscrapers and the parade of half-nude women in a pageant, is the most likely one to lead, change, and even save a nation from its own complete demise? Has statesmanship also passed into memory with only a fossil record to attest that it once was? More camel hair brushes needed here.

The best the Donald has offered if elected president is to support a congressional bill referred to as the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,” which would prohibit all abortions after 20 weeks except in cases of medical emergency. Not even 10 billion dollars seems enough to wake up the Donald to the simple biological fact that at only a few weeks into the growth of a fetus, you have a human being –nd no law of man will ever change that. Thanks for the compromise, but it will not suffice in the Day of Judgment.

Hidden under the mounds of dirt called ‘politically correct speech’ and ‘cultural diversity’ can be found the fossils of human wisdom and better judgment. Let’s dig there – because political correctness, compromise, and election rhetoric are lousy substitutes for a real conscience.

No one, including Donald Trump–who is not willing to make a full frontal attack against all abortion and perverted same sex marriage–is any more than a paper tiger vying for our votes based on a better deal than Barack Obama. America needs more than a substitute for Obama; we need a first-class statesman with a full blown conscience.

This article would not be complete if I did not show the reader that the Apostle Mark’s dire warning that the hearts of men would fail is appendaged with what radio commentator Paul Harvey used to call “the rest of the story.”

We don’t know which politician will be inaugurated as our next president, but we do know who will come in last to become the first for all eternity.

Planned Parenthood may be writing a new page in the history of evil, but we know exactly who will write the last page of human history and bring in the long-awaited correction to the misrule of men.

“And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Mark 21: 27-28)

The Battle Goes Beyond Planned Parenthood. We Must End Abortion In America.

How can we claim to be superior to nations that commit genocide when we commit infanticide? Destroying innocent life and harvesting human organs is beyond barbaric — it is unimaginably immoral, grotesque, and evil. 

Only evil could treat the organs of innocent babies as if they were fan belts, fenders, or fuel lines for a Ford — to be swapped, sold, discarded and disposed at the whims of a mechanic.

Each year, Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions; and 92 percent of pregnant women who walk into Planned Parenthood receive an abortion. Since 1973, abortion has ended the lives of 60 million babies; and we will never know how many of these souls were harvested to the highest bidder.

Planned Parenthood isn’t a healthcare provider any more than Benghazi was a ’spontaneous protest.’

It should enrage every American that our government confiscates money from our paychecks only to bankroll these barbaric butchers with $500 million each year. This isn’t about women’s health; this is about making money off babies’ body parts.

But it’s not enough to say we’ll end funding for these butchers at Planned Parenthood. America needs to make a choice.

Some spineless, soulless politicians “oppose” abortion but demand that it remain ‘legal and rare.” We didn’t end slavery by just making slave ownership “legal and rare.” We ended this sinful stain on our country by recognizing that it violated basic human rights and abolishing evil once-and-for-all.

In the face of human harvesting, it’s unacceptably unAmerican and immoral to bury our heads and hope this evil will disappear. It’s time for us to decide whether we accept, approve and endorse the willful destruction of human life.

Life is Life. Americans believe the high school quarterback’s life matters just as much as the freshman with Down syndrome. While some plug their ears and cover their eyes, moral truths are moral truths.

People can pretend that infants in the womb are blobs of animated protoplasm, but Truth is Truth. And science is making it much harder for Americans to ignore what their conscience already tells them.

Life begins at conception; the science on that is actually settled. At the moment of conception, 23 male and 23 female chromosomes create a new DNA schedule. The DNA that is created at conception is the same DNA that will exist in each human for the rest of his or her life.

As we digest the disgusting footage of these cavalier conversations about harvesting human organs, we must remember that this battle is about more than just defunding Planned Parenthood. We must end the scourge, sin, and slaughter of abortion. And then we should ask God’s forgiveness for not doing it sooner.

C.J. Pearson’s Personal Planned Parenthood Plea Is Permeating The Population With Passionate Pro-Life Position

At the age of 12, C.J. Pearson has already achieved a level of prominence beyond what most Americans achieve in their entire lives. The outspoken conservative activist has amassed a loyal following on the strength of several concise, passionate videos he has released in recent months.

The reception has not been completely positive, of course. Pearson acknowledged earlier this month that he received online threats from an anonymous critic, prompting him to take a brief break from commentary.

Pearson published his latest piece as a Facebook message instead of a video. The intimate, personal account of the circumstances around his own birth were presented as a counterpoint to disturbing charges recently made against abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood.

Capture

“My mom became pregnant with me during high school,” he wrote, “and she had a tough decision to make, probably one of the toughest decisions a prospective mother could ever make.”

With little money and few prospects, Pearson said his mother had a tough decision to make.

She had two choices: have me or abort me. My mother wasn’t ready for a child. She wasn’t financially capable of raising me and she didn’t feel as if she could give me the life she thought I deserved. But, my mother saw potential in me. She saw hope in me. She saw a future in me. My mother made the decision to have me because she simply loved me. Planned Parenthood would have told her abortion was the easiest and safest decision to make, but she didn’t buy that. She felt as if my life was much more valuable than simple convenience and for that, I am eternally thankful.

His testimonial garnered a litany of supportive comments. Many, including an adoptive father and several women who were at one point in the same position as Pearson’s mother, offered their own unique voices to the discussion.

Why Are Christians Hiding Their Eyes From The Truth?

It is good to see Planned Parenthood standing publicly as vulnerable and naked as the babies they murder. It’s good to watch as they get their pants pulled down below their knees. It is good to watch them try to wipe the crumbs off of the corners of their mouth as they have just been caught in the proverbial cookie jar.

Klanned Parenthood had been telling us for a generation that a “fetus” isn’t really alive. They tell us that it is just a blob of tissues that feels no pain. They tell us that murdering children is “health care,” as if killing a baby is healthy for either the baby or the mother. They tell us that ripping a baby apart is sometimes the most loving thing a mother could do.

Some wacko “Doctor” in Mississippi even told us that he was being “Jesus” to the women, as if killing a baby made in the image of God is a righteous and holy thing to do. They tell us that baby murder is merely a “difficult decision” between a woman and her doctor. They tell us that Jesus will forgive the mothers for choosing death rather than life for their defenseless unborn child.

They tell us that the Hippocratic Oath’s urging to “first do no harm” doesn’t apply to baby murders. They tell us that the baby will feel no pain as his/her little arms and legs are torn off. They tell us that anyone who stands up and fights for the life of these precious little babies is hateful and bigoted. They tell us that fighting to stop the war on unborn babies actually constitutes a war on women.

They call child sacrifice nice-sounding names: reproductive rights, choice, family planning. Even their name is a fraud—Planned Parenthood. Why would you go to Planned Parenthood to “plan” parenthood if you were already a parent? They tell us that you aren’t really a “parent” until the blob of tissue is born. But you are. You leave the “clinic” the parent of a dead child.

They tell us that it is our obligation for all of us to pay for the murder of babies, even if it violated our conscience. They tell us that they will make laws protecting “reproductive rights.” They tell us that we need to stay out of their wombs, even though they invite “doctors” to invade their wombs to dismember and suck out perfectly-formed human beings.

They lie when they tell us that men are not entitled to be part of the choice. They lie when they tell us that women will never regret killing their child. They tell us that it is simply a “medical procedure” like getting a tooth pulled, and that their lives will carry on as normal. They tell the women that they will never even think of their murdered baby as they watch other woman holding their precious children.

They never tell us about the economic impact on our nation brought about by the murder of 60 million little potential consumers. They never warn us that our children are our future and that we are killing the geese that lay the golden eggs. They never warn us that killing all of those little future taxpayers will only hasten the demise of Social Security. They never warn us that the Muslims will soon be out-producing us by a ratio of 4 to 1.

They fail to tell us that child-murder is genocide intended to reduce the number of black babies born in America. They never tell us that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger called black people “human weeds.” They never tell us that in 2015, the chances of a black child in New York being born were less than 50-50…more are aborted than are born. They never tell us that 78% of the babies murdered in NY are either black or Hispanic. They never tell us that the ghouls at Planned Parenthood intentionally target poor black-democrat areas of town in which to locate. They never tell us that black babies’ lives don’t matter. They never tell us that aborted black babies’ body parts are marketed in ways that would make AutoZone envious.

The politicians told us they were “pro-life” as they funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to the baby-Nazis. They passed restrictive laws designed to jail gentle Christians who knew and exposed what was going on behind the closed doors of the murder-mills. The “pro-family” organizations like Focus on the Family raised hundreds of millions of dollars to “fight” abortion by jumping in bed with “pro-life” legislators in a 43-year quasi-war against child-killing.

Our pulpits were silent with regard to the unborn. Oh, they might broach the subject on the annual “pro-life” Sunday; but they told us that baby-killing is a “political” issue and that they want to be careful not to “politicize” the pulpit. They tell post-abortive parents that Jesus will forgive them, while they do nothing to prevent such tragic heartaches from infesting unsuspecting young women who were taught that abortion would absolve them of their sin-borne “inconvenience.”

They tell us to vote Republican. They tell us not to judge. They tell us to obey the law. They tell us that to go to the clinics is “radical” and will only turn the women away from Jesus. They tell us that baby-murder is legal because the Judicial Taliban decreed it so.

They tell us to enjoy our “best life now.” They lecture us about the health and wealth benefits of being a Christian. They encourage us to bury our heads in the sand and ignore the cry to be our brother’s keeper. Child-slaughter continues only by the approval and consent of the church.

So now we’re supposed to be outraged that Planned Parenthood is selling aborted body parts. Every living being leaves behind a body when it dies—unborn babies are no different. What did we really think they were doing with the remains? Would you be upset if they simply ground them up in a garbage disposal? Would it upset you if they flushed the remains down the toilet like a pile of excrement? Would it bother you if they incinerated the parts in an oven? Isn’t murdering them enough to outrage you?

So now we know what is REALLY going on at Planned Predator. What are the odds it will be defunded? What are the odds that abortion will be criminalized? What are the odds that “pro-family organizations” will raise another $100 million to “regulate” child killing? What are the odds that “pro-life” organizations will simply circulate another petition designed to expand their databases?

If the baby inside a mommy’s womb is not a child, then why are the internal organs so in demand? Stop pretending that you don’t know the truth. Stop being so willfully ignorant.

Planned Parenthood is simply ISIS in the womb. Perhaps it is time to build a fence around the womb.
