Students Organize Pro-life Walkout Today to Honor Babies Killed By Abortion

Last month, Brandon Gillespie, a student at Rocklin High School in California, decided to organize a pro-life walkout as a response to the March for Our Lives student walkout to protest gun violence.

Today is the day and joining Brandon are over 200 other schools across the country. It’s doubtful the media will give it much coverage – if they even recognize it at all. Participants are already being shamed on Twitter and some students say that administrators at their schools have not been as accommodating as they were for the March for Our Lives.

Gillespie told The Federalist:

“I asked for the same accommodation as the anti-gun protest, that teachers would be flexible in their lesson planning, and also for the availability of equipment that the anti-gun protestors were allowed to use,” Gillespie said in a statement. “I really was not surprised when they told me that they were not going to give me the accommodations and that they were not going to sanction this walkout as they did the previous one. It just confirms for me that there is a political double standard, at least in my school district, but I’m still going to be out there.”

The walkout begins at 10 a.m. and will last for 17 minutes. Students will stand in silence and prayer to mourn the loss of the ten babies that have been aborted at Planned Parenthood in that time frame.

Following Planned Parenthood Tweet, Jezebel Says Statistically at Least Two Disney Princesses Have Had Abortions

A Planned Parenthood in Pennsylvania tweeted that among other things, we need a Disney Princess that’s had an abortion. The tweet has since been deleted, but as with everything else in the Internet, it lives on via screenshots.

Liberal rag Jezebel loved the tweet and devoted an entire article to it, stating that statistically, two of them already have.

From the post:

According to the Guttmacher Institute, 23.7 percent of women in the United States will have had an abortion by age 45. According to the “official” Disney princess website, there are 11 “official” Disney princesses: Belle, Rapunzel, Ariel, Tiana, Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Merida, Pocahontas, Jasmine, and Mulan. That means statistically around two and a half of these strong women have gotten abortions and aren’t telling you about it because of a national culture of shame and misogyny!!!

Insert eye-roll emoji here.

The comments were Internet gold with some people saying Elsa was left off (she’s not considered a Disney princess) and others trying to make guesses as to which ones were slutty enough to have gotten knocked up.

What a strange world we live in where people are debating the hypothetical abortions of cartoon characters.

Controversial New Abortion Bill Signed into Law by Indiana Governor Holcomb

Indiana governor Eric Holcomb signed a new bill that requires medical providers who treat women for complications arising from abortions to report detailed patient information to the state.

From the AP:

The Republican governor signed the measure without fanfare Sunday, shortly before leaving the country for a multi-day trade mission to Canada.

Supporters said the law, which takes full effect in July, will ensure abortions are provided safely in the state. But opponents argued that it’s overly burdensome and will further stigmatize abortion, which has lower complication rates than many other standard procedures.

The ACLU is reviewing the bill and will most likely sue the state as they have in the past over bills former governor Mike Pence signed into law.

This year’s measure will require doctors, hospitals and clinics to report to the State Department of Health about a wide range of complications. That includes serious medical conditions — like kidney failure, cardiac arrest, hemorrhaging and blood clots — as well as depression, anxiety and sleep disorders.

Other provisions in the measure will require annual inspections of abortion clinics and legalize the use of “baby boxes” in fire departments, which allow a parent to give up an infant anonymously and without fear of penalty.

Holcomb praised the measure for doing what the other states have been doing.

“This bill does what 27 other states have done to gather information on these procedures without restricting access to them,” the governor said in a statement.

As to be expected, people are losing their minds. One feminist even stated that women have more rights under Sharia law than women have in some states. Others are comparing Indiana to The Handmaid’s Tale.

 

 

Students Planning Pro-Life School WalkOut

Some students in Rocklin, CA are planning a pro-life walkout at their high school. The students decided to organize the walkout after the March 17th walkout against gun violence and after history teacher Julianne Benzel asked the students to think about what might happen if they held a walkout against abortion and whether there’s a double standard in the national school walkout. Benzel was placed on administrative leave because of her comments.

Student organizer Brandon Gillespie said the walkout is “To honor all the lives of aborted babies pretty much. All the millions of aborted babies every year.”

From the local Sacramento CBS affiliate:

Abortions aren’t really anything that has to do with school or students here,” said Naeirika Neev.

Neev is the editor of the school newspaper. In her posts, she’s using the hashtag “enough is enough” to promote peace, and take a stance against anything anti-abortion on campus.

“They have their First Amendment, they can go protest about that anytime anywhere,” she said.

 

 

 

There’s no date set yet, but Gillespie is meeting with his principal to discuss the planned protest.

Benzel returned to work and told Breitbart:

I just wanted to make sure that my students were informed. And so I just said, “Are you guys aware what is happening next [W]ednesday?” And very, very few of them were. So I said, “Well, this is a brief overview.” I said, “I want you to please go look deeper yourself. And I also want you to go home and have a dialogue with your parents, and let your parents know this protest is taking place.”

And I opened up the discussion for, if schools, not only just our school and our administration, but across the country are going to allow one group of students to get up during class and walk out to protest one issue, would they still give the same courtesy to another group of students who wanted to get up and walk out to protest. And I used the example of abortion.

 

Smart teacher and best of luck to the students at Rocklin. Your young voices are important to the pro-life cause. Thank you for standing up for the unborn.

NYC Mega Church Pastor Blurs Moral Lines on Abortion

According to the World Health Organization, there are 40 – 50 million abortions performed each year, and in the US, there are over 3,000 per day. In a society where abortion on demand is becoming the battle-cry of most feminists, it’s getting harder and harder to find the pro-life voices in the younger generations.

Which is why it’s especially disappointing when Carl Lentz, pastor of the 9,000+ congregation of Hillsong Church in New York and a prominent member of the Christian faith, failed to step up to the plate and call abortion out for the sin that it is.

When asked by host Joy Behar if abortion was sinful, Lentz responded “That’s the kind of conversation we would have finding out your story, where you’re from, what you believe. I mean, God’s the judge. People have to live to their own convictions,” Lentz continued. “That’s such a broad question, to me, I’m going higher. I want to sit with somebody and say, ‘What do you believe?’”

People have to live their own convictions? Really? Where is that found in the Bible?

As a religious leader, especially someone just slightly older than the millennial generation, Lentz had a huge platform to advance the pro-life movement while also compassionately reaching out to the pro-choice crowd to show that all sin can be forgiven and that the church is here to love and support women and help them when they choose life.

But by taking no stance, he basically says said “Do whatever you want! There are no rules in religion except those that you make your self!”

Is this where the Christian faith is headed? Just live life however you want and you’ll still go to heaven? Troubling times are ahead for the church if this is where we’re going with our theology.

If Lentz seems to be having some trouble finding scripture to support the Biblical view that abortion is wrong, maybe he should read some verses talking about the sanctity of life like Ps. 139:13-16, Matthew 1:18 or Luke 2:5.

Or you know, he could refer to our own Constitution that states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Gloria Steinem Quote About Guns and Abortion Isn’t Really by Gloria Steinem

You’ve probably seen the viral quote by feminist Gloria Steinem making its rounds on social media that says men who buy guns ought to be treated the same way that women are when they seek out an abortion.

22135721_10100363439227200_3572740166232414508_o

The full quote also adds this paragraph at the end: “After all, it makes more sense to do this for young men seeking guns than for young women seeking an abortion. No young woman needing reproductive freedom has ever murdered a roomful of strangers.”

Nevermind that this is one of the most absurd statements ever made, assuming that every man who walks into a store to buy a gun is planning to commit murder with it. Not to mention, also incredibly sexist because women purchase firearms too, you know.

And whether liberals want to admit it or not, a young woman seeking an abortion is, in fact, about to murder a human life, making her much more dangerous to mankind at that moment than a man (or woman) who walks into a store to buy a firearm for personal protection.

But back to that pesky quote.

Gloria Steinem may be getting all the credit, but in reality she never spoke those words. In fact, if you do some digging online, you’ll find that no one is sure exactly who did. The Huffington Post attributes the quote a Facebook user named Brian Murtagh but if he is indeed the author, his original post has long since been deleted.

It’s also possible it came from an article by William Hamby entitled “What if Gun Laws were like Abortion Laws?” but that was published on the now defunct Examiner.com so no one can really fact check it for accuracy.

So how did the quote get attributed to the feminist icon? Probably because she posted it on her Facebook page a few years ago in a list of “Top Ten Things I Want For Christmas.”

There you have it, folks – liberals pulling quotes out of the air that can’t be traced back to any particular person to drive a faulty narrative home.

OK Cupid Teams Up With Planned Parenthood

Are you a conservative looking for someone to date? Are you pro-life? Might want to cross using OK Cupid off your list of potential online dating sites where you can find a suitable girlfriend or boyfriend.

The dating site is now partnering with Planned Parenthood and introducing a special #IStandWithPP profile badge users can add to their profile picture. OK Cupid says it feels strongly about connecting members to causes they care about, and that 80% of members have responded “no” to the question “Should the government defund Planned Parenthood?”

“OkCupid’s partnership with Planned Parenthood is really exciting because it enables us to help people connect on the issues that matter to them. In this current climate, this matters more than ever when it comes to finding ‘your person,’” said Melissa Hobley, CMO of OkCupid. “We know that Planned Parenthood is driving conversations, support and education that millions care about. When we looked at the data, we saw that our community on OkCupid was talking about Planned Parenthood, so we decided to make it easy to find the folks who cared about the same thing.”

Strange that a dating site thinks it’s sexy to share in a cause that promotes the murder of innocent children. Also strange for a dating site to be asking users questions about whether or not the government should defund Planned Parenthood. Leave that up to the people to discuss once you connect them.

I bet they won’t enable a filter for people who DO think the abortion giant’s funds should be completely cut off.
