LONDON —The mother of a miracle child who was born with just two percent of his brain, and has since stunned doctors as his brain matter has grown and progressed to being nearly fully functional, is seeking to change the UK’s current law allowing mothers to abort unborn children with disabilities up to birth.

“I feel that all disabled children should be given a chance,” Michelle Wall, 45, told the Daily Mail. “We need to treat disabled people with respect and treat them like human beings.”

As previously reported, Wall had been advised months into her 2012 pregnancy that her son had spina bifida, chromosome abnormalities and hydrocephalus. As he was not expected to survive, doctors recommended an abortion—again and again. Click here to continue reading.

Woman Who Was Supposed to Die: ‘The only reason I am alive is the fact that the abortionist had not yet arrived at work.’

Twelve months ago, Gianna Jessen testified against Planned Parenthood, saying during a congressional hearing that her biological mother was seven and a half months pregnant when she was advised to undergo an abortion by saline — which “burns the baby inside and out, blinding and suffocating the child, who is then born dead, usually within 24 hours.”

“Instead of dying,” Jessen said on Capitol Hill, “after 18 hours of being burned in my mother’s womb, I was delivered alive in an abortion clinic in Los Angeles on April the 6th, 1977.”

“Doctors,” she said, “did not expect me to live.” Click here to continue reading.

Letter to the Editor: Ministry Ventures Brings Contemplative Influence to Pregnancy Pro-Life Center

Dear Lighthouse Trails:

I work at my local pregnancy help center as Client Services Director. I have been following you for years and am thankful for your warnings. When I first started reading your material I would have never thought I would need the information to guard my own spiritual life. Sadly I had to leave a church because leaders were involved in Mystic Catholicism. Friends have read and praised Jesus Calling and The Circle Maker.

Then mysticism began to creep in at the life-affirming ministry where I work. The pro-life ministry is indeed in a spiritual battle. Where else would Satan rather be but in the mist of something as horrific as abortion? First, some months ago, one of the major supporting organizations for pregnancy help centers suggested in an e-mail we read The Circle Maker for spiritual growth and encouragement. I immediately sent an e-mail back warning against such a suggestion. The writer actually called me the very next day to apologize. She stated she would be more careful in the future, but ended by defending the author of The Circle Maker.

More recently something more disturbing to me has occurred.

An organization called Ministry Ventures has introduced silent retreats for ministry executive directors and board members.  In an audio interview, Boyd Baily mentions Henri Nouwen, praising his writings. He describes bowing down before an old monk during a silent retreat although he is not Catholic.

This breaks my heart. We in the pro-life ministry need to depend on God for victory. However, it seems, we are now pleasing the Devil.

Please can you address this issue to help me warn others in the ministry? Ministry Ventures can be found on Facebook where there are links to their writings and audios. Here is a link to the audio I spoke of.

Thank you for your help.

LTRP Comments: In this audio session (see link above), Ministry Ventures co-founder, Boyd Bailey, says he was introduced to Fil Anderson several years ago (8:10 min mark) while at a “silent retreat” at a monastery. Fil Anderson is the author of Running on Empty: Contemplative Spirituality for Overachievers. Lighthouse Trails wrote about Anderson’s contemplative persuasions and his being trained at the panentheistic Shalem Institute in our 2013 article “Shalem-Trained Contemplative Fil Anderson Member of Samaritan’s Purse “Spiritual Care Team.”

On the Ministry Ventures website, it lists dozens of Christians ministries which are receiving guidance and training from Ministry Ventures. MV states: “Since 1999 Ministry Ventures has been partnering with faith-based nonprofit ministries to help them go Further, Faster!” Unfortunately, if Ministry Ventures is being influenced by contemplatives, it will no doubt pass this influence onto the ministries who come to them for help. A few of these ministries listed are Baptist Medical & Dental Mission, a number of pregnancy centers, Child Evangelism Fellowship of Hawaii, Chinese Pastors Fellowship, Christian Grandparenting Network, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, (FCA), Fellowship of Christian Peace Officers, andTeen Challenge of South Florida.

Seventh Planned Parenthood Expose’: Some Babies Are Alive When Organs Are Harvested

LTRP Note: Viewer Discretion Advised for Video Below

The seventh expose’ video surrounding Planned Parenthood’s alleged harvesting and sale of aborted babies was released today, featuring testimony that suggests that some babies are alive when their organs are harvested.

The footage, released by the Center for Medical Progress, features clips from the past six videos, as well as new footage from an interview with former StemExpress procurement technician Holly O’Donnell, who had shared part of her story last week.

In Wednesday’s video, O’Donnell recalled a time at Planned Parenthood’s San Jose, California facility when her supervisor called her into the room to show her that the baby’s heart was still beating, but pressed forward with removing the child’s brain anyway.

“The moment I see [the aborted child], I’m just flabbergasted,” she shared. “This is the most gestated fetus and the closest thing to a baby I’ve seen.”

“She’s like, ‘I want to show you something,’ and she has one of her instruments and she just taps the heart and it starts beating,” O’Donnell remembered, looking stunned. “And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus and it’s heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”

The former fetal tissue procurement worker said that the baby had all of his facial features. Click here to continue reading.

 

New Hampshire Defunds Planned Parenthood

By Heather Clark
Christian News Network

CONCORD, N.H. — Officials in the state of New Hampshire have voted to defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood on Wednesday, canceling its $650,000 contract.

The 3-2 party line vote by the State Executive Council comes as a result of a series of videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, showing that the organization harvests the organs of aborted babies donated by their mothers, and sells them to scientific companies who pay the organization the body parts.

The majority vote comes despite objections from Gov. Mary Hassan, who also released a statement decrying the decision.

“The council’s vote to defund Planned Parenthood will hurt the health and economic well-being of thousands of Granite Staters,” she said. “Moving forward, I will continue to fight to ensure that women and families have access to the important health services that are essential to the economic security and vitality of our families.” Click here to continue reading.

 

Letter to the Editor: Ode to Aborted Babies

Dear Lighthouse Trails:

I was so upset after looking at the recent Planned Parenthood undercover videos of dismembered babies, I jotted down the following. Why can’t we see these are human beings made in the image of God and are precious? I just don’t know what to do except to say “The Lord rebuke them.”

Disgusted in Illinois, Jeri

DID YOU SEE?

Did you see those little fingers?
Did you see that little arm?
Did you see that tiny heart so carefully removed,
the liver, and the lungs?

Did you hear God’s sobs?
Did you see His loving tears?
Did you feel His righteous indignation
When they dismembered the little parts He was knitting together?
Each was sold for filthy lucre.

Every life is precious to God,
Every little babe in the womb
Is fearfully and wonderfully made.
That my soul knows right well.

Thine eyes did see his substance,
Yet being not fully formed, and in Thy book
All his little members were written,
Which in continuance were fashioned,
When as yet there was none of them.

How precious are Thy thoughts unto the little ones,
How great is the sum of them.
If we should count them,
They are more in number than the sand.

Surely Thou wilt slay the wicked, O God.
They shall be turned into hell,
And all the nations that forget God
For the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.

‘Another Boy!’: Abortionist Discusses Dead ‘Specimens’ in Fourth Planned Parenthood Expose’

DENVER, Co. — The Center for Medical Progress has released a fourth video expose’ on the abortion giant Planned Parenthood, this time showing a local official discussing ways that the organization has sought to avoid trouble with the law and outlining the “specimen” collection process following abortions.

The video features Savita Ginde, medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, which performs an estimated 10,000 abortions. According to the Center for Medical Progress, the organization has a contract with Colorado State University to supply “fetal tissue.”

The footage, recorded in April, shows Ginde discussing the harvesting of organs from aborted babies whose mothers have agreed to donate their babies to science, and expressing concern that if “antis” learned of the information it might be seen as illegally “selling fetal parts across states” and they would “really run with it and make it really negative.”

“Putting it under ‘research’ gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing,” Ginde explains. “If you have someone in a really anti state who’s going to be doing this for you, they’re probably going to get caught.” Click here to continue reading.
