My Interview with a College Student Regarding Abortion.

Below you will find a link to an article that I was interviewed for. It’s by Elon University student, Alexandra Schonfeld. I’m always happy to give my personal testimony on my abortion experience, in hopes it will prevent even one woman from undergoing this horrific experience and committing this aweful sin.

Here are my full answers to the questions I was asked by Ms. Schonfeld and below that is her article, entitled ” Seeking and Abortion in the Bible Belt.”

INTERVIEW QUESTIONS w/ my responses-

1. Over the past year, how have you seen access to abortion in North Carolina, and nationwide change, if at all?

“In the past few years we’ve seen a trend of states enacting regulatory laws, individually. Currently I believe access to abortion nationwide is much unchanged. And in North Carolina, access is definitely there.”

2. For some people who are pro-choice, they believe that North Carolina upholds pretty restrictive legislation surrounding abortion including the 72 hour waiting period after counseling, and law that requires doctors to send ultrasounds of a fetus past 16 weeks to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services — what do you think of all this? What do you think of these guidelines put in place by the state surrounding abortion?

“As a woman who’s been through the harrowing experience of an abortion, I’m personally thankful to NC legislators for enacting the 72 hour wait. I believe it, at the very least, gives the woman a chance to take a deep breath and consider or reconsider her options in regard to her pregnancy. Perhaps she’ll be blessed to find a crisis pregnancy center, where she can obtain an ultrasound of her preborn baby…You know that old saying ” Act in haste, repent at leisure?” Well hopefully during this period she’ll decide for life- the life of her preborn baby and have little to later repent of. I hate to see a woman do as I did -pressure herself out of panic , fear, and outside pressure, and cave into a seemingly” quick fix” . Abortion is anything but a fix. It has such lasting repercussions.

Regarding the provision of ultrasounds to DHHS, it’s an important safeguard against providers breaking the law by performing latter- term abortions than the law allows. It’s accountability for the medical community involved in this contentious practice. In many people’s eyes, they’d have to question the ethics of a doctor even consenting to perform abortions in the first place- going against the Hippocratic Oath to -” first do no harm…” If they’re willing to take innocent life they may be willing to fudge the numbers, i.e. weeks of pregnancy, just to make another buck, perhaps? I refer you to Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, as case in point.”

3. Do you have an opinion on the Supreme Court judge nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his perceived opinion on abortion and roe v. wade?

“I really don’t have much comment on Kavanaugh. He himself is a bit closed- mouthed on Roe v. Wade calling it “settled law”, but I think we all know he’s a conservative with all that implies. We’ll see, I guess.”

4. What do you think about resources such as the North Carolina Abortion fund that help people who may not able to afford an abortion, fund abortions?

The Carolina Abortion Fund states the following on their Twitter- “We believe that income should not limit individuals’ ability to make reproductive decisions. ‘_ Carolina abortion fund.

“I actually believe the same. Just because a woman finds herself pregnant and yet has little means, doesn’t equate to her solving what she perceives as an insurmountable economic hardship, by terminating the life of her child. Sure this group wants to help her scrape together enough money to have her baby scraped out of her womb. But,let’s instead look around at all of the agencies and resources that exist to help this same woman keep her baby. This group promotes the idea of expanding Medicaid to pay for abortions. I point to, instead, Medicaid for pregnant women and children, which can help a woman pay pregnancy costs and help afterward with her child, if need be. And better yet, faith based organizations or the church, if you will, should and does show their love by supporting pregnant women via pregnancy centers which provide her with many baby items, counseling, education, and moral support.

My desire is to see a culture of life come into fruition. Our country’s current death culture is a dead-end no pun intended. We see the evil trickle- down from abortion in that life is cheaper and less meaningful all around. We as caring, justice-loving, peace makers must stop telling women that killing their babies will somehow lead them to a better life. That is a lie. Currently the U.S. is falling below population replacement numbers. God had intended these souls to be born to balance out…what abortion has created- the societal imbalance of an aging population with not enough young and strong base to carry on. So if economics is your thing, you should be pro- life! But , truly believe the law of our mutual Creator is written upon all of our hearts, let’s stop going against that law. Thanks.’

Abortion Kills Humanity’s POTENTIAL

Good Illustration of Sin brings forth Death

Happy Mother’s Day

I am so blessed this Mother’s Day to have someone call me “Mommy”.  To hear little voices calling my name. To hear them laughing and singing. To see them and dancing and running. Motherhood is a gift and a joy given by our precious and loving God, Jehovah, Jesus.

I am so thankful that God bestowed upon me, a sinner, an imperfect person saved only by His Grace; the opportunity and yes, the responsibility of being a mother.

The only way I can do it is by His daily mercies and grace to me and to my family. I know that I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me, daily (Philippians 4:13).

It is sad to remember how I felt before I gave birth to my children and held them and have them in my life and arms.  In the past, I was a bereft woman who disposed of her unplanned child through abortion. I grieved the abortion for many years. How tragic it was. How tragic it still is for so many women who are mothers with empty arms. The only freedom from that pain is the freedom graciously given me when I asked Jesus into my life and heart.;To be my Savior and Lord. He let me know that one day I will hold that baby in Heaven.

So today on Mother’s Day, a day when mothers are honored, and lauded; I would like to let all women everywhere know that I know what its like to have gone through the physical suffering of the abortion procedure as well as the prolonged (decade long) emotional, psychological and physical pain of the “choice” that I made.

Abortion is a lie. Abortion is death. Abortion is violation. Abortion is pain. Abortion is wrong. Abortion is evil. Abortion is murder.

To the women who have had an abortion; there is Hope, Forgiveness, and Restoration. It can only be found in ONE PLACE- THE ARMS OF JESUS.  Ask Him to forgive you for murdering your unborn child. He will. Ask Him to free you from the guilt, remorse,pain, bondage that resulted from your choice. Take responsibility as a mother to repent to God for the ending of the Life of one of His Precious Ones. It may seem impossible but the Freedom He gives is real.

May God bless all the Mothers this Day in Jesus Name.

Pray to End Abortion!

Abortion Devalues Life at Every Age and at Every Stage

Recently I have started working part-time at a local gym organization in the childcare room.  It is a sort of “drop in daycare” situation. The children are only allowed to be there for a maximum of two hours.  They are left there for the purpose of their parents going to work out/ exercise.  This sound perfectly reasonable and fine, does it not? I thought so too.

But when I started working  there my heart really went out to these little kids left there to be cared for by strangers who are paid minimum wage.  One thinks two hours is nothing, right? I agree, if the kid is there while their stay at home mommy goes for a stress-relieving work out, its fine. But some of those little ones,( 2 years old), have already been in a daycare/ playschool all day then have to come to this facility for another shuffling about. It is truly something that touches me deeply.  I was one of those kids.

My parents divorced when I was 2 years old. So this left my mom to be a single parent who worked full-time as a high school teacher. I had to get up early in the morning, many times one of the first kids to arrive at daycare and later at school. I can remember being at the daycare and crying for my mommy, feeling so desperate, knowing she was not coming. I would even day-dream and plot my escape from the place. I figured how to jump the fence and I thought I could run to my mom’s school and be with her. Of course this never happened.  Later when I was school aged, I had to go to a Y afterschool program and I was often the last one picked up. It was really traumatic for me. I always felt insecure, wondering if and when my mommy was coming.

This new job really touched some deep memories and hurts in me. Especially when I would see a little girl tune up, crying, for mommy. I held her and told her I loved her,not like her own mommy, but that I care and she is safe. The sad thing is that most of the women who work in there are not like me, with a heart for the children. They seems to be a real malaise and laissez faire attitude is seems.

How tragic for the generations of children, raised by strangers, since the early 1970’s when women’s liberation and legalized abortion all came about. And of course divorce is a major culprit in the neglect of children. Fathers are absent and mothers do what they feel they must to get by and provide for children and cover for coward men who abandon their children.

Again, I ask who are the victims? They all are, really. But the saddest are the little innocent ones shuffled about like so much chattel. Children are not “things” they are people made in the image of God. They are precious, innocent, and sweet. And most of all they are in need of loving care from their own mothers and fathers or grandparents.

Does anyone really think that a stranger who is often paid minimum wage or barely above, who is saddled with too many kids to handle can provide ANY level of CARE?

I am overcoming the scars from my childhood,through the Grace of Jesus, my Savior. And I am grateful to have LIFE. At the time I was born, it was just shortly before Roe v. Wade became national law. So many of my generation and subsequent generations never took a breath.

The horrible abomination of abortion devalues human life not only in the womb by snuffing it out. It also continues that same lack of worth of human beings after they are here. Children are so often seen as less than a person, or a problem to deal with, or worse. We can see it also with the aged. They are put into nursing homes to “someone else’s problem”. So at the beginning of LIFE and at the end of LIFE these precious souls are abandoned to happenstance and chance in institutions, to be “cared for” by strangers. How sad! How wrong!

God loves the helpless ones. He highly values their lives. They are precious in His sight. Why are they not precious in our collective sight? Are we no longer a Christian country? I think not! As long as innocent blood is being shed via abortion in the USA, God is never going to Bless us. He hates all of our murderous abomination. The souls of the innocent cry out to God day and night for JUSTICE. And, people, God will bring JUSTICE, lest we repent.

The reason many won’t care about the topics I have mentioned is because they do not involve making money, gaining pleasure, and gaining self-fulfillment. To change things people must go back to the BIBLE and stop living for SELF and temporal PLEASURE. MONEY must cease to the this country’s GOD!

Jesus said “suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for such is the Kingdom of Heaven” (Mark 10:14).  Jesus told us to be as little children. We are to be wise as serpents yet innocent as lambs.

Jesus has his flock. He will have those come unto him. And to any who would prevent such As it is written; ‘Better a millstone be hung around their neck and they be cast into the sea (Luke 17:2).”

United States of America: Are you ready for that Millstone? Think you can swim with it?

Pray for repentance and heart revival  for this country,

God Bless.

NC House Approves “Choose Life” Liscense Plates

The North Carolina state House has just approved legislation to allow motorists in the Tar Heel State to purchase Choose Life license plates to adorn their vehicles and spread a pro-life, pro-adoption message.

The House voted 70-44 to authorize dozens of new specialty plates, including the Choose Life plate, that require an extra $25 fee to purchase — with $15 going to pregnancy centers that provide women with abortion alternatives for each plate sold in the state.

Until now, North Carolina was the only state in the southeast that refused to let its citizens purchase the choose life license plate. For eight years the legislation for the choose life plate had been denied a vote even though more than 130 other plates have been approved.

This is an  awesome step for North Carolina and for the precious lives of the unborn.  I am so thankful. And I hope to go and get my plate this week!

Thank You for this Victory Jesus!
