Stopping the Sale of Baby Body Parts by Planned Parenthood
Step One – Criminal Prosecution
Your Prayers and Fasting Are Being Heard by God
Breitbart News, December 1, 2016. By Dr. Susan Berry
“The House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives is referring Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast for criminal prosecution by the Texas Attorney General.
The announcement comes following an investigation by the panel into the question of whether abortion facilities profit from the sale of the body parts of aborted babies.
Chairman Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) released the following statement on House passage of H. Res. 933 that authorizes funding to allow the panel to complete its investigation into America’s abortion industry and fetal tissue procurement practices:
Our Panel was tasked with investigating areas that, prior to the revelations of undercover journalists, received too little attention. For most of us, it is nothing short of an outrage that Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics supplement their budgets by selling human fetal tissue from aborted babies. The House charged members of this Panel with investigating fetal tissue trafficking, second- and third-trimester abortion practices, the standard of care for infants who survive abortions, and the role played by our taxpayer dollars in this sector of society. Over the last year, we have held hearings that explored the bioethics surrounding fetal tissue use and that revealed the sobering reality of how some bad actors seek to profit from the sale of fetal tissue in violation of federal law.”
Reprinted from Breitbart News, December 1, 2016
The Power of Praying and Fasting is the pathway to defeat and drive out this evil from our nation. The election of Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence is the start of this healing. Evil will not stand by and give into our efforts to rid this nation of the scourge of infanticide. Our pro-life government officials like our President Elect and Representative Marsha Blackburn and her committee will need your intercession with God to make this happen.
I (we) can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (us).
Life Has Much to Celebrate
Make Thanksgiving a Continuous Event!
1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” The Lord desires that we have a grateful spirit no matter what our circumstances. Even in the midst of pain or hardship, we can always thank Him for our salvation, His presence, and His work in our lives.
From Dr. Charles Stanley
Prayer and Fasting will Continue to Support and Ensure that
The Results of the 2016 Presidential Election Will
Bear the Fruits of Life and Begin the Downward
Spiral to End Abortion in the United States.
Life is a Choice, Chose It!

Planned Parenthood Offices: PP’s 59 independent affiliate-owned businesses enjoy $58 million in profits annually. Our local PP businesses in Seaside and Salinas are part of Planned Parenthood Mar Monte which owns 33 centers in CA and receives $96 million in taxpayer money or (83%) of their income.
Birth Control Profit Model: Most people do not realize that PP also makes a tremendous profit from selling birth control pills to young women. Normal pharmacy purchases one month’s supply of birth control for @$22 and sells for @$28; PP purchases one month’s supply (as a non-profit and for a volume discount) at @$1.50 and sells for @$18
CA Birth Control Laws for Minors: In CA it is legal for an eleven year old girl to receive birth control, a 5yr Nor-plant injection, or an abortion during school hours, or young men to access condoms, without a parent’s permission or knowledge, even though a school nurse could not administer an Advil or Tylenol to the same student, because of a law that enables a minor to receive unlimited access to “reproductive health care.”
Planned Parenthood “religion” of Secular Humanism: PP promotes their religion of “secular humanism” to our youth, thereby decreasing their interest in a God-based faith and the practicing of their parents’ religion. This has happened in Germany, France and Denmark so that church attendance between 15-19 year olds has plummeted from 80% to 8% in a generation!
Planned Parenthood National Goals: PP is currently losing business nation-wide and has failed to successfully launch PP “mega-centers” (10,000 sq ft. clinics) in malls and other prominent locations. Only one of 18 mega-centers has launched successfully. PP has current business plans to “beautify” each office to increase business and profits. We can shut off funds to PP including limiting their exposure to our youth in schools, Girl Scouts, and 4H clubs, thereby, reducing their business so that they will be shut down in our communities. When members of our House of Representatives no longer have a PP in their jurisdiction, they lose interest in funding them. Since PP is accountable for 1/3 of all abortions in the US annually, we can make great strides in reducing the number of abortions in CA. As well, we can help prevent PP from infiltrating our schools and youth groups, as well as reduce our tax-payer contributions to PP in CA. (Please note these funds can be re-directed to other pregnancy and health care centers to provide the services people need.)
Reference Materials: Jim Sedlak, has written a book called “Parent Power” (which can be downloaded on his website for free) to explain how we as parents and grandparents can take control back over our children and grandchildren and limit the indoctrination that our young people are receiving from the culture and especially PP. Also, on the American Life League website there is a “Culture of Life Studies” Program for parents, church leaders, and Sunday school teachers “that teaches the truth about the value of all human beings, the sacredness of the sacrament of marriage, and the necessity of the family as the building block of society.”
Here are some PP terms meant to deceive us and our youth:
WE ACCURATELY CALL IT THEY CALL IT
A corporate business with franchises/affiliates “non-profit health care org”
Profit “income after expenses”
fetus/unborn baby/developing human “product of conception”
separate human with unique DNA “my body, my choice”
PP TRY’S TO UNDERMINE GOD’S COMMANDMENTS WITH SECULAR HUMANISM
#1 priority =God #1 priority = sex
Honor thy Mother and Father Confidentiality from parents
Thou shall not kill “terminating a pregnancy/ blob of tissue”
Thou shall not commit adultery sex anytime, anywhere

A California Parental Notification of Abortion Initiative (#15-0025) has been approved for circulation in California as a contender for the November 8, 2016 ballot, as an initiated constitutional amendment.
The measure, upon voter approval, would require parental notification in order for a minor to have an abortion.
Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty
O God our Creator, from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ.
Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.
We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. , Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.
Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome—for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us—
this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
