St. Jude Warrior-To-Be ---YIKES

That's someone else's LAST year's video, but you got the point. I can't imagine anyone looking at the photos in that video with a dry eye and NOT being able to spare one. lousy. dollar. to help these kids and families.

I mentioned in this post how I'm hoping to get in shape enough to do a Warrior Dash in my son's state later this year, raising money for St. Jude Children's Hospital.

Please: donate--even just one lousy dollar--online at my personal Warrior Dash webpage www.warrior.stjude.org/AnnB. You can even do it ANONYMOUSLY, I'll never know your name, and if not anonymous, you can choose how you want your name to appear and can choose not to show the amount you give. There's even a way to choose mailing it in, but check out this video too at the official homepage first and

Meet the REAL St. Jude Warriors.

If I reach my goal, we can pay for one day of oxygen, or two transfusion units of red blood cells, for a St. Jude patient like those in the videos. Check out my webpage for the other things your donations can do.

Some St. Jude Warriors have raised over $1,000 and are now shooting for $2,000! Wow. Maybe I'll up my goal? Depends on you!

And we can help St. Jude's prevent kids like Christi Thomas and Jessica Joy Rees, memorialized in that video, from succumbing to their disease.

I figure, heck, if these kids can fight cancer as hard and as bravely as they do, this 50+ year old tub of a woman can plan for this 5K obstacle course/run.

Need more reasons to help these kids? How about 30 more reasons?

Know someone else who's planning a Warrior Dash anywhere else? You can search for them and donate to them here.

And while I'm here, it's Holy Thursday. Blessings to all, because of it.

March of Dimes 2014 Update- Still Supporting Planned Parenthood, And Worse

We've posted over at the sister blog, Abortion Pundit, the 2014 update to the March Of Dimes' implicit support for abortion. The story recently got a little bit worse.

A Letter Like Mine

I could only write to my own aborted daughter like this on the Rachel's Vineyard weekend retreat. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been even able to pick up the pen, never mind set it to paper for one single word.

A Forced Abortion Avoided; Help For Those Trying To Avoid One Now

An abortion facility has closed, and I found the back-story about this place worth posting, because it's about helping women and girls avoid being forced to have abortions.


It's written by a lawyer, Allan Parker, who as a result of this encounter, formed "The Center Against Forced Abortions" as part of his work at the Texas Justice Foundation. Although based in Texas, I believe they can help any woman or girl, anywhere in the U.S. For more information or to talk to a lawyer, call (210) 614-7157 or email info@txjf.org .

They've provided in that link, in English and en español, information, letters, etc. to help girls and women avoid being forced to have an abortion they don't want. Para ayudar a las niñas y las mujeres evitar ser forzada a tener un aborto que no quieren. All because of this long-ago encounter, at the above abortion facility...

...where I first met a young girl being forced to have an abortion by her mother. I was pretty nervous waiting for her there and trying to figure out what I would do. I think it was my first time to actually stand before an abortion clinic. I had collected thousands of testimonies of women hurt by abortion and knew how devastated women could be by having the child in their womb killed by an abortionist. I did not want her to be hurt. She had contacted us somehow because we had already stopped a couple of forced abortions, but we were very new at this.

She told me over the phone her mom was forcing her to have an abortion, but that she thought she could persuade her otherwise. But I had not heard from her in a while and she had told me when the forced abortion would occur in that facility above. It was near the very offices of The Justice Foundation, in a place I just thought was a doctor's office. I had passed it many times without a thought. Now I was waiting to see of I could help her at the last minute.

I called twice to girls that were not her. Then the third girl responded: "Yes?" I said, "I am the attorney you have been talking to. Can I help you?" She responded, "I don't want this abortion, but I can't fight my mother." Her mother came out and asked me. "Why are you doing this?" "Ma'am, I know too many women hurt by abortion. I don't want that to happen to your daughter," I replied. She said, "I think I ought to call the police." I said, "Ma'am, I think you ought to. This is fetal homicide."


[NOTE: see Texas Law on that phrase.]


She stormed into the abortion clinic and told her daughter to come inside now. Her daughter looked at me with a pleading look on her face and said, "I can't do it. I can't fight her" and went inside. I immediately called the police and said, "I am Allan Parker and I am outside an abortion clinic. I was just told by a girl that she doesn't want to have an abortion, but she can't fight her mother. She is a minor and she can't fight her mother. I believe this is a fetal homicide. You need to come out." The police said they were on their way.

I didn't know if they were coming to arrest me. Instead I identified myself when they came, they went inside and came out and said, "There won't be an abortion today. We are having Child Protective Services investigate."

As a result of that experience we formed the Center Against Forced Abortions and came up with the Dear Parent Letter which has resulted in saving thousands of babies across the United States from forced abortion.

However, I had to pass that abortion clinic for years on my way to work and I always prayed that the Lord would shut it down some day.

We recently [January 2014] received a letter from the attorney representing Dr. Salazar, notifying us that since August 2013, he had resigned his license as an abortionist and returned to the regular practice of family medicine.

The "The Center Against Forced Abortions" link has some references to other forced abortion stories. We've had a running list of links about forced or coerced, legal abortions here on this blog for years.

Gimme Shelter Movie reviewed on Breitbart

'Gimme Shelter' Better Than Overtly Pro-Life Movies
by Lisa De Pasquale

I'm sorry to say I missed the movie and now it's gone from theaters in my state. I'd planned to see it this past Wednesday, when we got hit with another 10-12 inches of snow. I will buy the DVD when it's available. I'd heard Jim Vicevitch say on his Sound Off radio program that it brought him to tears and he loved the movie and its message of hope. And of course the critics panned it: it's a true story that doesn't end in an abortion, in fact, the protagonist fights to avoid abortion against all the pressures of our society around her to have one. Of course the critics hated it, because it's a true story. Times a few hundred thousand women, maybe millions, who've been helped by places that help young girls and women "find your family." If you need such help check out the links at the top of our blog, and the right sidebar has 'em too (see "PREGNANT & need help?").

Update on Numbers at Snowy March For Life 2014

An anonymous commenter who was there posted this on our post earlier:
I was there. Not only was that red [area] filled, but the side streets merging onto it were filled with people. So at any given time the street between 3rd and 7th was filled and so were all the streets perpendicular to the Mall. The Mall was filled and STAYED filled because of these people.

“How can I heal you when you’re not willing to heal yourself?"

Another video, another life story, Lisa Luby Ryan, speaks about her grief over her abortion. I won't give you the spoiler. Watch it for yourselves. (I live under a rock, if everyone else knows who she is, but regardless, even if she was a nobody, this is an extremely compelling, honest confession. Whatever you do, it is well worth watching to the very end.)

A continuation of the "I Am Second" post from yesterday.

"I don't have to have all the strength"

Go watch this video. Right now. A world land speed motorcycling record-holder speaks about life, and her abortion at age 16.

All the other vids are incredibly moving as well, especially NHL Nashville Predator Mike Fisher, baseballer Albert Pujols, actress Janine Turner, former lead guitarist of Korn, Brian Welch, Olympic champion ice skater Scott Hamilton, "Survivor: Redemption Island" player Matt Elrod, and many more, at I Am Second.

I am second, indeed.

Continued, tomorrow.

#Salute A Hero

This brought tears to my eyes. If it doesn't bring even one to yours, then you have to ask yourself one question: why the hell not? I don't care if it was initiated by a beer company for their SuperBowl ad (and I love beer). I no longer have a vet in my family, since my dad passed away, but every time I see someone in a uniform, usually desert-sand or green camo, I always, ALWAYS, go out of my way, if I have to, to say "Thanks for your service." And they always graciously say "Thank you" in return. Like one of the vets says, "America needs to understand what this [welcome home] represents...it's for all of us..." God Bless ALL our vets, and especially the ones who never got this kind of appreciation or welcome home, like the Vietnam Vets. We love you too.
