“The greatest shortcoming of an apostle is fear, because it inspires doubt in the power of the Master, cramps the heart, and strangles the voice. The apostle no longer professes. Is he still an apostle? The disciple who abandons the Master no longer professes his faith in Him. They encourage the executioners. Anyone who remains silent before his enemies emboldens them. An apostle’s fear is the primary ally of an enemy’s cause. In a strategy towards godlessness, the terror that is practiced by all dictatorships draws its effectiveness from the timidity of the apostles. The first goal is to force one into silence through fear. Silence has its apostolic significance only when I do not shrink from my oppressors. This is what the silent Christ did, and by this sign He revealed His courage. Christ did not allow himself to be terrorized. When He went forth to meet the rabble, He said openly, “It is I.”“To liberate man so that he can aim for the truth and live by it, it is necessary to acquire the virtue of valor. The proof of Christian valor lies in readiness to fight for the truth. The virtue of valor is nothing else but the shedding of human weakness, especially fear and apprehension. We must be afraid of only one thing in our life-betraying Jesus for the few silver coins of barren quietude. It is not enough for a Christian to condemn evil, cowardice, lies, and use of force, hatred, and oppression. He must at all times be a witness to and defender of justice, goodness, truth, freedom, and love. He must never tire of claiming these values as a right both for himself and others.”

A Planned Parenthood abortion-referrals facility has closed in Sherman, Texas — near Dallas — as a direct result of the bill Governor Rick Perry signed that the Texas legislature approved revoking taxpayer funding for the abortion business.
The center closed on Tuesday, four months after former manager Ramona Trevino resigned her post at Planned Parenthood. Trevino is now speaking out about her pro-life conversion and resulting exodus from the organization responsible for the most abortions in the United States.
According to the pro-life group 40 Days for Life, which publicized the closing and which helped Abby Johnson leave a Bryan, Texas Planned Parenthood center, Trevino explains that, although this particular Planned Parenthood did not perform surgical abortions, she was struggling “with [her] conscience . . . on contraception, abortion and [her] role in it all.” All Planned Parenthood centers make abortion referrals and some of them dispense the dangerous RU 486 abortion drug that has killed dozens of women and injured another 2,200 in the United States alone.
Beginning last March, Texoma Pro-Life Association sponsored a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil for the first time outside the Sherman Planned Parenthood that is credited with helping Trevino change her mind on abortion.
On August 28, there will be a rally at the public right-of-way in front of the former Sherman Planned Parenthood (2114 Texoma Pkwy) from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. to commemorate the closing of the facility. David Bereit, National Director and co-founder of 40 Days for Life, will be a guest speaker at the rally, as will Trevino. Trevino will share her journey from believing she was providing a service to women in need to realizing that Planned Parenthood “treated women like cattle and how they only cared about making money” – a realization she says was “long overdue.”
“We want to bring pro-life members of the Sherman community together to reflect upon the blessings received during our 40 Days for Life campaign . . . to rejoice in the victories that God has accomplished,” said Gerry Brundage, spokesperson for the Sherman 40 Days for Life campaign.
In addition to her Sherman appearance, Trevino will also be the keynote speaker at the 40 Days for Life-Dallas Kickoff Rally on September 27 at 6:30 p.m. at Harry S. Moss Park, 8000 Greenville Avenue in Dallas. Beginning at midnight, Dallas will join over 300 cities worldwide in the Fall 40 Days for Life campaign through November 6, including a 24/7 peaceful, prayer vigil outside the Southwestern late-term abortion center (at Greenville and Royal in Dallas).
The facility closed in the wake of $58 million dollars of funding cuts in Texas, which prompted the closure of a cluster of Planned Parenthood facilities. Other Texas Planned Parenthood facilities on the chopping block include Gainesville, Plano, Waxahachie, Mesquite, Arlington North, and Terrell.
The Texoma Pro-Life Association also commented on the closing: “After 7 years of prayer, petitions, and hard work, the Planned Parenthood facility in Sherman, TX, is shutting its doors. We ask for prayers for the former employees of the Sherman Planned Parenthood facility and we give all the glory and praise to God for this amazing accomplishment.”
Earlier this week, pro-life advocates were given the good news that an abortion center shut down in Pensacola, Florida.
The closing follows news last week that Planned Parenthood would no longer do abortions at some Arizona locations because it declined to follow new pro-life laws enacted in that state.
Meanwhile, a California-based abortion business closed in July after 40 Days for Life pro-life prayer events there.
Earlier this year, Family Planning Associates, one of the largest abortion center chains in California,closed the abortion business it runs in Newport Beach. Operation Rescue president Troy Newman informed LifeNews about the closing of the FPA abortion facility and he said the Newport Beach location is one “where pro-lifers have been sidewalk counseling and praying for decades” and “its closure is an encouragement that we are winning.”
With FPA closing up shop in Newport Beach, it joins the closing of all five Golden Gate Community Health locations in the San Francisco area. Formerly known as Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, the GGCH abortion centers closed after financial problems and mismanagement forced national Planned Parenthood officials to disaffiliate the local affiliate.
Also earlier this year, two Pennsylvania abortion clinics operated by abortionist Soleiman M. Soliwere closed by state officials in the wake of the discovery of Kermit Gosnell’s “house of horrors” where he killed a woman in a botched abortion and killed hundreds of babies in birth-induced abortions that are essentially infanticides. Soli closed the clinics and retired rather than clean them up.
The closings follow the permanent closure of a Planned Parenthood abortion referral center in Ohio. Planned Parenthood of Northeast Ohio will be closing one of its centers north of Columbus, in Galion, because it says it is has come up on financial difficulties that make it necessary to consolidate.

Delaware Right to Life’s Response to Joe Biden’s Comment on China’s One Child Policy
Thursday, August 25, 2011 --Delaware Right to Life staunchly condemns the comments made by Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday, August 20th. The statement that resulted in national media attention was one that was made during an appearance at Sichuan University in Chengdu; in which Biden stated, “Your policy has been one which I fully understand -- I’m not second-guessing -- of one child per family.”
The media and the White House may attempt to smooth over the uneasiness of the American people which was brought on by Joe Biden’s unreserved support of China’s one child policy, but we at Delaware Right to Life know of the only way that peace and security will be reinstated in the hearts of the American people once again. We must return to the principles that the United States of America was founded on- Liberty and Justice for ALL. The prosperity of this great nation comes from the intelligence, strength and courage of its people, those who live now and those who are yet to be born. We hope that Vice President Joe Biden will soon be able to “fully understand”, without “second guessing,” the potential that lives in each human being, born and unborn.

Planned Parenthood has conned the public so well with their bright pink signs and empowering talking points; hoping that their passion for reproductive rights will outweigh the damage they have procured. They want the people to believe that they truly care about women’s health, not the revenue; and that they work to reduce abortions within the community. “ Planned Parenthood believes that the best way to make abortion rare is to make sure women, families and teens have access to confidential and affordable health care services”( http://www.plannedparent hood.org/rocky-mountains/planned-parenthood-parental-notification-10565.htm). This is contrary to what, Amy Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director in Texas witnessed. Assisting with an ultrasound guided abortion one day at her clinic, Amy watched in horror as the body of a thirteen week old baby was sucked from a woman’s womb; fighting for its life. That moment ended her eight year employment with Planned Parenthood. Having dodged attacks and a lawsuit from the company that once named her the affiliate’s Employee of the Year, she reveals the lies she once believed. “Abortion was where my priorities needed to be because that was where the revenue was. This meant that my job as the clinic director was to find a way to increase the number of abortions at my clinic.”(Johnson & Lambert, 2010) In Planned Parenthood’s Annual Reports ( 2005-2008,) and Fact Sheet for 2008 (2010) the insight from Abby is mirrored in their abortion numbers; which have steadily increased through the years. In 2004 there were 255,015 abortion procedures performed; 264,943 in 2005; 289,750 in 2006; 305,310 in 2007; and 324,008 in 2008”.
Those who have stood behind Planned Parenthood have been hypnotized by the chants of “my body, my choice”. As a result, they have silenced the voices of those who have been victimized through the desensitization of integrity. In a country called “the land of the brave”, why are its leaders cowardly numb to the basic threats against liberty? It is true that these threats may not manifest into the kind of terrorism that brings down buildings; but they are the kinds that terrorize the fundamental rights of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”. There are far worthier, honest organizations that deserve the millions in taxpayer money that Planned Parenthood currently receives. The masquerade has finally begun to fall, and it is now up to the people of the United States of America to ensure that the values the country was once founded, reign again over its citizens.

Another man on Margaret’s list of allies was a professor by the name of Dr. Eugen Fischer, who believed that “blacks are an inferior race of savages who should only be allowed to survive as long as they are of use to the Arian race (Maafa 21).”. His essay, “Eugenic Sterilization: An Urgent Need”, was published in the Birth Control Review in 1933. Fischer was eventually hired by Hitler and was a part of committees that saw to the sterilization of blacks in countries that came under Nazi control (Maafa 21).
Those dark days are over and done with, right? We have moved past racial corruption and embraced a new world where all are equal, regardless of the color of their skin. It’s sorry to say, but the oppressive weight of discrimination is alive and well in Planned Parenthood to this day. Within the past couple years a student run organization called Live Action has gone into Planned Parenthood clinics across the nation, exposing that Sanger’s ideals from over 90 years ago are rampant in the organization. In one of their many undercover videos, (2010) an actor poses as a potential donor and calls a Planned Parenthood clinic in Columbus, Ohio. Within the first 40 seconds of the conversation the actor asks Lisa, the clinic’s administrative assistant, “When I underwrite an abortion, does that apply to minorities too?” to which she responds “If you specifically want it to underwrite an abortion for a minority person, you can target it that way. You can specify that’s’ how you want it spent... for whatever reason we’ll accept the money (http://liveaction.org/)”. Two other videos from this project followed in the same manor. In total, 4 out of the 7 clinics that were called endorsed the racist donation.( http://liveaction.org/). It doesn’t end there. Planned Parenthood’s lack of human respect extends far beyond the war on this country’s African-American brothers and sisters. This past January, Live Action released Planned Parenthood‘s most horrific truths to date; which, simply put, reveals them breaking the law.
On January 13th of 2011, two actors from Live Action impersonating as a pimp and his prostitute, entered Planned Parenthood of Perth Amboy, New Jersey. What followed was a deplorable attack on innocence, liberty and the law by a Planned Parenthood employee, which sent shock waves through the nation. The “pimp” relates to clinic manager, Amy Woodruff, that some of his sex slaves “are young… like fifteen, fourteen… and some don’t even speak any English.( http://liveaction.org/)” From there the manager goes on to inform the pimp how to get the girls to lie about their own ages and the age of their partner, on paperwork when they return to receive services from the clinic.( http://liveaction.org/) According to the U.S. Code 2 and 1591, “Sex trafficking of minors is a federal crime and punishable by imprisonment for 10 years to life”, and “Any person who aids, abets or counsels a federal crime to be committed may be punished as if they had committed the crime themselves.”

About 3 weeks ago Pat Radell and I were at Planned Parenthood and a young woman and her friend came out. It was obvious that she was in pain from having a surgical abortion, she was doubled-over, crying and was leaning on her friend very heavily. It was a hot day so she and her friend stood on the side of Planned Parenthood under a tree close to where Pat and I were praying. We went over and tried to comfort her and talk or pray with her, offering her information on Rachel’s Vineyard and after abortion-care. She didn’t speak English so her friend translated everything to her.
Emily Knearle – VP of PP marketing/public relations walked by several times and the first couple of times she never even acknowledged the woman. I went and got a folding chair from the back of my car so the poor woman could at least sit down while she waited for a ride. Finally, Emily came over and asked “Ya doin’ ok?” and then announced to both women “You know you don’t have to listen to them, right. You can if you want to but you don’t have to.” It seemed to us that PP was eager to be protective of getting this woman through the door to take her money and abort her child, but couldn’t be bothered with her after she left, broken-spirited, grieving, and in agony.

All around America there are traces of deception. The last place Americans expect to find it is in the healthcare department. Despite the trust that Planned Parenthood has earned from individuals throughout the years as a healthcare provider, they have dedicated years to building a wall of deception; in order to secure the multi-billion dollar revenue that flows through their doors. There is no other way to put it; they have been two-faced, manipulative and simply just out-right liars. From the shocking mentality of their founder to a woman who worked on the inside for eight years, it will finally be revealed why Planned Parenthood needs to be de-funded. “We the People” have a duty to ensure that every person partakes in the dream of our Founding Fathers; which is “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”. Amidst this time of strife, there is a war being waged on home soil against the vulnerable, the unsuspecting and the innocent. Who will fight on their behalf?Planned Parenthood, which was originally called the American Birth Control League, was founded by Margaret Sanger; who is most popularly known for the liberation she brought to the female race in her push for birth control. But, not commonly known was that Margaret’s fight for the legalization of birth control was driven by eugenic ideals. In April of 1924 she wrote in her paper, the Birth Control Review that, “We must make this country into a garden for children instead of a disorderly back lot overrun with human weeds.”(p.111) Nobility on the behalf of Sanger was not present from the beginning; contrary to the empowering words Planned Parenthood eloquently states today. Birth control was not for women to “be in charge of their destinies”. In her book Women and the New Race she speaks of birth control as “nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives.(p.229)” It’s interesting to note how Margaret Sanger would later change the name of her organization to Planned Parenthood. Perhaps she feared people would discover the true motives behind her birth control push; because the general public’s understanding of birth control was not the same ideal that motivated her actions.
Margaret specifically saw a certain race as these “human weeds “and “defectives”. The targeting of the black community is not only evident in her statements of this subject, but is brought to light through the people she surrounded herself with. In her autobiography that was published in1938, she relates how “a dozen invitations to speak to similar groups”(p.366) were extended to her when she spoke at a women’s branch of the Klu Klux Klan. Margaret strove to conceal her racism, but subtly infiltrated her ideals where, she believed, they would be the most undetected.
“The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members. (p. 17-18)”
These same, devious actions are carried out to this day, considering that 78% of Planned Parenthood clinics are located in minority neighborhoods. (http://www.blackgenocide.org/pla nned.html). Margaret Sanger was not alone in her barbaric fight to exterminate the black population. Who better yet to recruit as comrades in a hidden holocaust than those who assisted in one of the most horrific mass murders, human history has ever known?
