SHE'S HERE..SHE'S HERE!!! A Christmas Miracle..

Thank You Lord, she is beautiful .  Only 4 lbs.2 oz. as she arrived prematurely Her features are tiny and wonderfully made.  We first met her and took her first picture when she was 8 weeks old. inside our ultrasound van after her mother walked back out of the abortion mill in Granite City.  It was a fight for her innocent life.  We begged and pleaded with the abortion bound mother as she stormed passed us that  morning. The accomplice took our literature, but brushed us off as we pleaded mercy for this little one.  Praise God, they came back out and looked for our van which had already left for the day. She called me and we returned the next day to show her that precious gift growing inside her womb.  

     We compassionately listened to her struggles and plight . We knew, she really didn't want to go back in there and kill her baby. We lovingly shared our ministry and all our resources we could help her with and we saw a change in that van, we knew if we provided the materials and support she would see real hope. We provided the monetary resources she needed that day to stay in the housing she was currently residing and to keep the utilities on. God made it possible for this distraught mother to see Jesus through our working hands and efforts to keep the baby alive and both of them thriving.    
      Of course the devil was behind the scene sowing seeds of doubt. This young mother had every excuse to take her unborn baby's life as she was a high risk pregnancy..but we prayed several times over this mother and baby and the Lord provided the protection and the specialty physicians to deal with delicate condition. 'I rebuke you devil, are not getting this baby. You have no authority over this child or this mother, now, get behind me Satan" we declared. 

                                         So today, very early, this beauty made her stunning debut weighing a little over 4 lb.s . She fits in your hand and wailing, which is always a good sign.   Please meet lil' Miss Kaelin Alexis ..and know that are blood , sweat and tears are not in vain.  Lil Kaelin is living proof that being a window to the womb and helping abortion minded women on the spot, outside abortion mills, does save lives.  Just ask lil' Kaelin. Our Christmas miracle. 
             "Heavenly Father, You created us in Your own image, and You desire that not even the least among us should perish.  We ask now, in Your love, to protect us against the wickedness of the devil, and those little ones whom You have given the gift of life,..In Jesus Name we pray. 
    Be encouraged,

Kicking the Bucket

On a personal note, Salvation Army has never helped me in placing homeless pregnant girls through the years. Their excuse was always, "Pregnant women are a liability and we don't want to be sued if anything happens to them in our facilities".

Salvation Army marching toward abortion support?

Exceptions already approved in international position statement

     This is the season of the year when Salvation Army volunteers are on the streets and outside stores ringing their bells to encourage donors to fill their red kettles with money for the poor. The longtime Christian organization provides food, shelter, elderly services, disaster relief, prisoner rehabilitation and many other forms of aid.

    But it also has adopted a position statement that is a step toward abortion, and pro-life leaders are expressing alarm at what they see developing.

    In its statement on abortion, the Salvation Army says: "A number of biblical and theological principles underpin The Salvation Army's position on abortion. …

    Get "180," the DVD that shows how when confronted with the facts of abortion, people do a "180" turn to oppose the procedure.

    "The Salvation Army believes in the sanctity of human life. Humankind was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). All people – without exception – are of value to him, holding a special place in his creation (Psalm 8:5), irrespective of age, gender, race, religion, health or social status, or their potential for achievement."

     But it also states, "A serious commitment to the protection and care of the unborn calls us to a commitment to the prevention of unwanted pregnancy through means such as access to reliable birth control, safety in relationships, and societal respect of women."

     Specifically, it says the Salvation Army "believes that termination [abortion] can occur only when carrying the pregnancy further seriously threatens the life of the mother; or reliable diagnostic procedures have identified a fetal abnormality considered incompatible with survival for more than a very brief post natal period."

     And it continues, "In addition, rape and incest are brutal acts of dominance violating women physically and emotionally. This situation represents a special case for the consideration of termination as the violation may be compounded by the continuation of the pregnancy."

    Christian human rights activist Rebecca Kiessling, an attorney, speaker and author who defends rape victims and was conceived during the rape of her mother, was surprised.

    "This [abortion] statement is one of the most disheartening things I’ve seen," she told WND.

    She donates to Salvation Army and, as a mother of five, frequently shops at Salvation Army Thrift Stores.

   "They are clearly trying to set forth a biblical standard. They say that God defends the weak and those who are marginalized and that He is a God of justice, but the Salvation Army has now marginalized children like me who were conceived in rape. In other words, they support the death penalty for innocents like me who were conceived out of violence. Yet the Bible says that a child should not be punished for the crimes of [his or her] father," said Kiessling.

    "The Salvation Army is all about rescuing treasures and trading beauty for ashes with the used clothes and household items people donate to them, but they can't seem to do the same for rape victims and their children," Kiessling said.

     Salvation Army Commissioner M. Christine MacMillan was contacted by WND and asked to respond to three questions: (1) Does the Salvation Army fund abortions in any way? (2) Does it lead women to abortionists in any way? (3) Why does it cite and link to the Guttmacher Institute, which is affiliated with the abortion chain Planned Parenthood?

    She declined to answer, saying instead she might call back. She didn't.

     Leticia Velasquez, a mother of three, including one child with Down syndrome, is an author and founder of Keep Infants with Down Syndrome or KIDS. She said, "The Salvation Army should re-consider their position on this critical issue, as it is not consistent with a pro-life stance.

    "An abnormal prenatal diagnosis does not lower the God-given dignity of a baby. We believe that all human life is sacred from conception until natural death. If a baby is destined to live only within her mother's womb for a few brief moments or days afterward, then we must give that child the full span of life and not end her life by abortion."

     Likewise, Stephen Phelan of Human Life International told WND, "The 'International Position Statement on Abortion' from the Salvation Army is seriously problematic, both for its interior contradictions and for the fact that it explicitly links itself with the Guttmacher Institute, which openly promotes unrestricted access to abortion around the world. Indeed, the organization is named after Alan Guttmacher, the abortionist who was a transformational president of Planned Parenthood and who was a tireless advocate for abortion."

   Alveda King, director of African American Outreach at Priests for Life, expressed similar suspicion.

   "Good organizations become 'infiltrated' by forces that promote abortion, the breakdown of marriage, sexual immorality, etc. They come as wolves in sheep's clothing and appear to be harmless and even helpful. Then they begin to reveal their true or basically untrue colors. This is sadly maybe what is happening to the Salvation Army. Not for sure, but maybe."

     "So much of the Salvation Army statement is commendable, but parts of it read like it was written by the Guttmacher PR department to ease the conscience of those who are not yet in support of unrestricted abortion. These contradictions are irreconcilable," added Phelan, HLI's communications director. "The mere appearance of support from Salvation Army can be used by the huge international abortion cartels to justify their work."

     "My first pastor was a Salvation Army officer. The Army has long been an uncompromisingly strong witness of Christian truth, but they have got it terribly wrong here," said Rev. Rob Schenck, a minister on Capitol Hill and chairman of the Committee on Church and Society for the Evangelical Church Alliance.

     Schenck and his twin brother, Paul, now a Catholic priest, were targeted by the state of New York and the Clinton administration for defending unborn babies and their mothers outside abortion clinics and other public places, including places where President Clinton appeared. In 1996, the twin brothers and all pro-life demonstrators were vindicated by the U.S. Supreme Court when eight out of nine justices ruled in favor of Schenck v. the Pro-Choice Network of Western New York.

    Wendy Wright, interim executive director of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, agreed with Schenck and HLI about the Salvation Army.

    She said, "The Salvation Army has an admirable history of reaching the most outcast and shunned in society, the broken and destitute, the hardest of cases. This policy treats the most shunned and broken of unborn babies, the hard cases, and shuts them outside humanity's house. Simply put, it violates God’s commandment that 'thou shalt not murder.'"

   "Not only is their position weak and unbiblical, but it's contrary to historic Christian moral instruction and to the good work of the Christian Holiness movement that is their heritage. This is an aberration that must be corrected immediately if the Army is to maintain its Christian integrity," said Schenck.

    Wright said the Salvation Army's stance on abortion "denies the humanity of a child to say she can be killed because of the crime of her father. Or that deliberately taking a child's life is somehow better than allowing God room to work, to do a miracle, and to shower that child with love for as long as possible. Following the Salvation Army's counsel would mean that the only touch that some severely disabled babies would ever feel is not the loving arms of her mother, but the sharp blade of an abortionist."

     Considering the Salvation Army ad and its good works in urban minority neighborhoods, Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, said, "I'm very disturbed if they support abortion in any way, especially because I always give money to the bell ringers I see outside stores before Christmas. I find the whole thing rather disturbing because they are doing this in the name of Jesus Christ, Who came into the world under very difficult circumstances – as a poor and homeless baby.

     "I have been working with a mom, a young black woman in Chicago, who had conjoined twin boys that shared a heart. People told her she should let them die because they wouldn't live long. Their mom is very strong in Christ, the boys lived 18 months and she said she would not have traded her time with them for anything."

Forward by Angela Michael

        A familiar staple will no longer be conveniently accessible in between the colorful packages of chewing gum and sweet treats at the grocery checkouts. Praise God! It appears a light came on within the minds of the Health and Human Services Secretary and President Obama. The aborticant, the Plan B Pill, will no longer be available to little girls without a prescription. It makes sense. You wouldn’t hand a gun to a 12 year old and tell her to learn how to use it without proper supervision and instructions would you? Would it be asking too much if the former senator, now President, from Illinois would go one step further and protect little girls in Illinois by placing parental rights back into the hands of the parents that are raising those underage teens, and lift the injunction a federal judge placed on this law that has been on the Illinois books since 1995? The ACLU and abortion industry in Illinois think they make better parents than those who are footing the bills and are held responsible for those children when it comes to sex and abortion. Ensure it’s passage by enforcing the law, immediately. Let’s go back to Plan “A” as in abstinence. Better yet, there is always Plan “C”, as in Christ.

Morning After Pill Not Allowed Over The Counter Because Girls Allegedly Won’t Understand It
Plan B came this close to being offered in drug stores without a prescription until Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius overturned the ruling. She claims that young girls under the age of 17 won’t understand how to use the emergency contraception.

The Food and Drug Administration was entirely prepared to lift the age restriction which currently permits the pill in pharmacies to girls 17 years old and up should they have identification proving their age. The New York Times reports that Sebelius overturned the decision because a 17 year old is more capable of understanding how to use the pill properly than say a 13 year old:

“It is common knowledge that there are significant cognitive and behavioral differences between older adolescent girls and the youngest girls of reproductive age,” Sebelius said in a statement. “I do not believe enough data were presented to support the application to make Plan B One-Step available over-the-counter for all girls of reproductive age.”

But the FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg tells the Times that she and her agency’s drug-safety experts did very much take into consideration the safety of young girls. She said:

“There is adequate and reasonable, well-supported and science-based evidence that Plan B One-Step is safe and effective and should be approved for nonprescription use for all females of child-bearing potential.”

A simple pill that can prevent you from becoming pregnant following a rape, a broken condom, or poor choices doesn’t seem all that complex to an eighth grade girl — if not completely mythical. Having those options right along with condoms could have put a serious dent in the number of unplanned pregnancies in the States, as well as abortion rates.

Our daughters need more education about safe sex practices and options, not restrictions.

November 30th   

      We received her distress phone call last night and promised to meet with the girl the following evening.  After her shift, she would meet us on a parking lot and talk.  We had a commitment  before our appointment.  We were invited to a church sponsored concert, the guest musician and singer was a devout Christian, Mitch McVicker.  He was formerly with Rich Mullins before his untimely death.  He was performing in Highland this evening, what a blessing.  A one man show. He loves the Lord and was so talented.  His songs of worship and praise just encouraged us for the task at hand. We were about to save a baby.     We had to sneak out before Mitch was done, but, we expressed our gratitude to his entourage and his Dad.  We exchanged contact information and purchased a CD.  His Dad heard we were running for office and we acknowledged and he wished he could vote for me, but,  I said, "You can do something even better, I need your prayers, we have to leave early as we are meeting a young pregnant girl, we're going to save her baby, we need prayers." "Yes ma'am", he answered "God bless you both",  he said as we left.  
       Fast forward:  on a dark lit parking lot we quickly set up our ultrasound van.  Brr.  It was cold. The generator kicked on PTL!  We were off..a few minutes later she parked her car and came inside our van.  Oh my!  I remembered this girl..from behind her back, a little girl appeared rather shy.  "Chanel"  then reintroduced me to this little one. "You saved her seven years ago.. My mother was making me go to the abortion clinic, but, you met with us and you calmed my entire family down and helped us so much,..  When this happened, you were the first person I thought of as you helped me so much last time". I asked her, "What does your mother think of your daughter now?"  She replied, "She is her world!"  I responded, "I'm glad things worked out for you."  
     I asked her daughter if she would like to help me with the scan. Up and down she nodded. We gloved up and quickly scanned, and there on the screen an approx 6 week old baby appeared,. "Chanel" started gently weeping, while her daughter watched in glee. "Look mommy there it is". She shared her plight and we went over a strategy, especially since her mother was pushing for an abortion last time. "It's seven years later, you are standing on your own two feet, and these are the resources we can help you with."  We advised her for a physician follow-up and answered her immediant needs.  She was feeling better about her situation.  We viewed the baby swimming in an ocean of fluid.  "It's so active ", she said. "Your baby is auditoning for it's life," we said.  She then sat up and gave me the tightest hug. "Thank you so much. I'm so grateful there are great people like you that help people like me at all hours and unconditonally", she said. "Wow, that means alot to us, as the thanks are few and far inbetween." "No, I really mean it", she said"You guys are so busy with your kids and stuff  and you come out on a cold night to help me.  Thank you just doesn't seem enough", Chanel said. I replied,  "No, you blessed us tonight, saving your baby is our reward."  

    We handed her some more mom-to-be literature and a treat for her little girl who was enjoying the whole experience.  The little girl turned to me, hugged me and said, "Thank you for saving me." WOW! We watched them get into their car and drive away. Daniel helped me tear down and place the signs back into the van on this chilling , cold night. "You see Daniel, that's what is all about. You have to love and help pregnant girls unconditonally, at all hours , even in the dark of night. Jesus went out to the lost and needy. He knows that where there is love, life will grow." ..                "Thank you Lord for guiding our feet and living through us and blessing us with the fruits of our labor's."
