01/22/2020

Fake feminists will celebrate the tragic #Roe decision today (resulting in over 61 million needless deaths), but they won’t tell you this. Jane Roe--the late Norma McCorvey-- never aborted her child. She made a loving plan of adoption, instead. Norma, like millions of other women, was simply used as a means toward an end. She became #prolife and dedicated the rest of her life on earth to undoing the lie of #RoeVWade. Her ministry was called #RoeNoMore. Millions of us, from coast to coast, will continue her fight until the violence of abortion is history. radiance.life/roe

New medical research finding unborn babies may feel pain as early as 13 weeks could have significant implications

New scientific study says that unborn babies can feel pain as early as 13 weeks! This from a researcher who consulted FOR #PlannedParenthood. From TheBlaze: "The new evidence is so telling, in fact, that Derbyshire and Bockmann say ignoring the evidence 'flirts with a moral recklessness that we are motivated to avoid.'" Wow! https://www.theblaze.com/news/new-medical-research-finding-unborn-babies-may-feel-pain-as-early-as-13-weeks-could-have-significant-implications

Soooooo, providing *less care, no matter what* is a great business model for the nation's largest abortion chain--#PlannedParenthood. Major medical services to women have plummeted 68%-76%. But don't worry, abortions increased. And profits are up 600%. It pays to fail women, apparently.

Planned Parenthood, a two billion-dollar abortion industry birthed in eugenic racism, is the leading killer in the black community. Using recent estimates from the CDC (38% of abortions are in black community) and Planned Parenthood's latest reported abortion numbers (345,672 killed in FY2018)...an estimated 360 black lives are o̶p̶p̶r̶e̶s̶s̶e̶d̶ killed by Planned Parenthood every single day.

From www.radiance.life/mlk:
"The arc of the moral universe may be long, and it may bend toward justice. But evil has a way of forcing detours that take humanity on a much longer course.

Planned Parenthood enjoys abusing the legacy of Dr. King (touting its inaugural Margaret Sanger Award given to him) to advance its abortion empire, killing babies of every hue in the name of the god of abortion. They will twist any historical figure, any word, and any moment to protect the one thing they adore more than anything else—the blood money that has made them a two billion-dollar Goliath.

But have no fear all you Davids out there. We know how that story ends."

Pro-Life Kids!: A Resource Helping Your Family Create a Culture of Life

"I first saw the title Pro-Life Kids! as I was scrolling through my Facebook feed. I simultaneously felt a surge of excitement and a whisper of skepticism.

Excitement because a children’s book upholding the dignity of life and challenging kids to use their voices on the issue would be such a benefit to parents who seek to create a culture of life within their families.

Skepticism because, well—nothing could be more politically incorrect, right? Could this be real? Could this be good?"

Parents Challenge ‘Radical’ LGBT Curriculum in New Jersey Schools

Eugenics polluted people's minds with the pseudoscience that humanness is conditional. It was taught in schools. (It still remains a heavy influence in gender studies, health and #climatechange curricula.) Planned Parenthood led the way in promoting the propaganda, profiting by killing those deemed less than human. Gender spectrum pollutes people's minds with the pseudoscience that gender is conditional. It is being force-fed to public school students now. Planned Parenthood is leading the way in promoting this propaganda too, and increasingly profiting by drugging those deemed "transgender." People need love and truth, not profiteers, pseudoscience and political propaganda. https://www.dailysignal.com/2020/01/13/parents-challenge-radical-lgbt-curriculum-in-new-jersey-schools/

As a pilot program for New Jersey’s LGBT school curriculum goes into effect, parental rights activists work to prevent its full implementation in September.

Honored to share the stage with courageous #prolife legislators over the weekend in Erie, PA at People For Life’s annual Pro-Life Breakfast. Senator Michele Brooks (R-PA) is a champion for Life and is proof that we should trust women—women who believe that we’re ALL created equal, reject the violence of abortion, and fight to protect the most marginalized and most vulnerable in our society. #LifeHasPurpose #TrueFeminism #ImWithHer

MSM, Illegal Immigration and Separating Pro-Life from Its Meaning

"When 'pro-life' means everything, it means nothing. The #Prolife movement fights to protect the unborn while physically, emotionally and spiritually caring for mother and child (while mentoring fathers as well). If every movement is a ship, this one is sinking. It seems to be the only one that has to take on the cargo of every single issue on the planet in order to validate its mission. Thank God slavery abolitionists didn’t navigate their cause with the same mentality. Imagine if anti-slavery advocates were pressed to address healthcare, housing and job security as prerequisites to ending the injustice of slavery. The evil institution would never have been abolished, and I just might be on an auction block somewhere in a town near you." --Ryan Bomberger, cofounder of Radiance Foundation.

Today is my dad’s 75th birthday. He could’ve lived a “normal” life but chose to love his amazing wife and thirteen children (ten adopted) instead. Despite fighting the horrible debilitation of Parkinson’s disease, his inherent worth has never changed. This is the man who chose to love me because he saw my worth when so many others thought I—a child conceived in rape—was worthless. I hope I can be a fraction of the man of God he has always been. Love you, dad! You changed the world more than you’ll ever know. www.Radiance.life/mydad

10 Reasons to oppose the Equal Rights Amendment

What's wrong with the #ERA? Or as Students for Life of America call it, the "Everything Related to Abortion" Act.
"Laws protecting women’s interests will be undercut by the radical language of ERA that strips away from women their unique place in the law," explains SFLA. "The most profound change will be creating a constitutional foothold for abortion." Ratification failed. But that's never stopped the Left from subverting the rule of law. https://eagleforum.org/topics/era/10-reasons-to-oppose-equal-rights-amendment.html

The vague, poorly written language of the ERA does not allow any distinction to be made between men and women – even when it makes sense to do so based on their biological differences. As a result, the ERA will harm women AND their unborn children by overturning laws and programs that benefit them...

Black Pro-Life Leaders To SCOTUS: ‘Long History’ Of ‘Uncredentialed Abortion Providers Disproportionately Harming Black Women’

Abortion businesses don't want to be regulated...like actual health facilities. And no demographic is harder hit by this self-policing industry than the black community, where abortion rates are more than four times higher than the majority population. Abortion is big business, and abortionists don't want anything to interfere with their fake health. Our amicus brief, filed along with Dr. Alveda King, Project 21, Douglass Leadership Institute, National Black Pro-Life Union, Walter Hoye: Issues4Life Foundation, The Frederick Douglass Foundation and others, exposes the hugely disproportionate impact the Left's pro-Gosnell approach to health has on black lives. Pray that the current Supreme Court sees the sham that is Big Abortion in this historical Louisiana case, June Medical Services LLC v.

Those Prolife Covington Catholic Teens Weren’t The Racists

We stood with #NickSandmann & his fellow #CovingtonCatholic students from the moment we did what #fakenews media refused to do--reported what actually happened. The leftist media, which regularly ignores the annual March for Life, finally found a reason to cover it--to smear pro-lifers and attack President Donald Trump in the process. The Left is obsessed with race but can't identify REAL racism when it's pounding a drum right in their faces (or screaming it from a mic.) We called a spade a spade and a racist a racist. Kudos to you Nick and your attorney for going after CNN Washington Post NBC News for reckless and libelous behavior that put you and your fellow students in danger. CNN just settled with the Sandmanns. There will be more to follow. Mainstream media...try something different. Try honest journalism. http://www.theradiancefoundation.org/covington/

New Children’s Book Pro-Life Kids Powerfully Illustrates How Every Human Life Has Value NATIONAL RYAN BOMBERGER NOV 15, 2019 | 10:38AM WASHINGTON, DC Bethany Bomberger is the co-founder of The Radiance Foundation and homeschooling mother of four children—both biological and adopted. She’s the author of a brand new adorably illustrated children’s book called “Pro-Life Kids.” This book powerfully illuminates that every human life has purpose. The hardcover 10”x10” book is available through the Radiance Foundation in the newly launched ProLifeKids.com initiative. Dr. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr., enthusiastically endorses Pro-Life Kids!: “You’ll love this book; it’s creative, courageous and compassionate as it encourages young children to see the equal value of every human life, in and out of the womb.” Abby Johnson, former director of Planned Parenthood and author of Unplanned, says: “If we are serious about ending abortion and making it unthinkable, then we must start by educating our children about the sanctity of human life at an early age. As parents, we are our children’s first educators and Pro-Life Kids! will help you be the very best prolife educator for yours. Our kids need to know that life is beautiful, abortion is unacceptable, and that they have a powerful voice in our society. This book will help you and them find their voice.” Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education and Defense, praises the book: “PRO-LIFE KIDS! shares the beautiful message about the inherent dignity of every human person in a way that children will easily understand! The illustrations are gorgeous and communicate such colorful diversity. This joyful, direct and engaging book can serve as an excellent tool for parents who want to teach their children these simple truths in a positive way.” Bethany has been an educator for two decades. She has taught in both public and private schools—urban and suburban—working with thousands of children, youth and adults. With a bachelor’s degree in Education and Family Studies from Messiah College and a master’s degree in Education from Regent University, Bethany has spearheaded numerous innovative educational programs in her classrooms. As a public speaker, she addresses large and diverse audiences about her Christian faith and culture-shifting issues from an evidence-based perspective. “We need to teach our children before a broken world reaches them,” says the new children’s author. “Pro-Life Kids! is not just a book. It’s a movement.” The Radiance Foundation is a life-affirming non-profit organization known for its original and creative campaigns, fearless journalism, powerful multi-media presentations and compassionate community outreaches.

Trump admin gets pro-abortion language removed from UN anti-rape resolution Abortion, Donald Trump, Francois Delattre, Rape, Reproductive Health, United Nations, United Nations Security Council NEW YORK CITY, April 24, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – The Trump administration secured the removal of pro-abortion language from a United Nations resolution against rape in war zones Tuesday by threatening to veto the measure if the final version contained a notorious euphemism for abortion. The UN Security Council had been debating updates a resolution first approved in 2013 to combat the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war. The United States objected to a reference in the document calling for “comprehensive health services, including sexual and reproductive health” for “survivors of sexual violence,” on the grounds that “reproductive health” is a longstanding term of art for abortion and related services. The Trump administration would not publicly discuss ongoing negotiations, but Foreign Policy reports that an internal State Department cable explains its position. America remains “strongly committed to preventing conflict-related sexual violence and holding responsible persons accountable” and agrees “more needs to be done to deter the recurrence of such crimes and assist survivors,” the cable said, but “cannot accept unamended explicit, or implicit, references to ‘sexual and reproductive health’” because “we do not support or promote abortion.” “If we let the Americans do this and take out this language, it will be watered down for a long time,” an unnamed European diplomat complained to The Guardian. “It is, at its heart, an attack on the progressive normative framework established over the past 25 years.” The US threat to veto the resolution succeeded in getting the language removed from the final resolution Tuesday, US News reports. The finalized text "ended up in a place that is closer in line with the White House's priorities,” an administration aide said. Complaining that the change was “intolerable and incomprehensible,” France’s UN Ambassador Francois Delattre admitted that the “reproductive health” language was all about abortion, by blasting the Security Council for failing to acknowledge that rape survivors “should have the right to terminate their pregnancy." The Trump administration has consistently worked to defend life and oppose abortion at the UN, from resisting pro-abortion agenda items and reducing foreign abortion funding to affirming that abortion isn’t a human right and promoting abstinence education.
