Instead of calling these the “hard cases,” Ryan Bomberger has coined the term, "the heart cases" and we LOVE it. We also love that he is going to be at our conference April 12! Put it on your calendar and go here to sign up!!
FANTASTIC NEWS: There have officially been 27 abortion clinic closures so far this year!
There are now only 576 surgical abortion clinics in the US, as opposed to 2,176 in 1991, according to Operation Rescue! We’ve come such a long way, and this truly is the pro-life generation!!

That’s how oppression works.
1) “I’m sorry to say I couldn’t think about raising a child with Down’s. I’m something of a perfectionist.”
2) “If he can’t grow up to have a shot at becoming the president, we don’t want him.”
3) “It’s devastating, it’s a waste, all the love that goes into kids like that.”
4) “I just couldn’t do it, couldn’t be that kind of mother who accepts everything, loves her kid no matter what.”
5) “The bottom line is when my neighbor said to me: ‘Having a “tard,” that’s a bummer for life.’”
These are ACTUAL RESPONSES from parents who sought prenatal screening to determine if their child had Down Syndrome. The parents all intended to abort their baby if he/she were diagnosed with DS, and these were some of the reasons they gave for their decision.
THIS is the elitist, discriminatory, ugly side of our culture—a culture that has grown to value our own “health” and “happiness” over the life of another who we deem lesser. How can any society profess diversity, acceptance, and tolerance if it is utterly intolerant of the sick or the handicapped among them?
Killing the mentally handicapped (who are statistically proven to live happy, fulfilling lives) before they are born is not kindness—it’s the darkest form of selfishness.
Those aren’t all the quotes. Read the rest here: http://bit.ly/1p5UVPp

This hit me hard because my mom babysat this kid when he was younger (he is like my older brother now) and him and two of his siblings were tested positive for downs before they were born. NONE OF THEM HAVE DOWNS! NONE OF THE TESTS WERE ACCURATE! NOT ALL OF THEM ARE!
This photo was taken at the University of Minnesota by photographer Robert Wolfe in 1972. It was taken during surgery for an ectopic pregnancy. No one can deny the humanity of the unborn even in these early stages.
A doctor who was present for the surgery later shared this testimony:
“Years ago, while giving an anesthetic for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy (at 2 months), I was handed what I believe was the smallest living human ever seen. The embryo sac was intact and transparent. Within the sac was a tiny human male swimming extremely vigorously in the amniotic fluid, while attached to the wall by the umbilical cord. This tiny human was perfectly developed, with long, tapering fingers, feet and toes. It was almost transparent, as regards the skin, and the delicate arteries and veins were prominent to the ends of the fingers. The baby was extremely alive and did not look at all like the photos and drawings of ‘embryos’ which I have seen. When the sac was opened, the tiny human immediately lost its life and took on the appearance of what is accepted as the appearance of an embryo at this stage, blunt extremities, etc.”

It’s just so clearly a baby… :(
I made these to put up around my school for my school’s GSA. They are quotes from some little known bisexuals about their bisexuality.
Lets stop bisexual erasure and remember, bisexuality is real!
Bisexual erasure is a huge thing, even in the LG community. Let’s raise the awareness!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
