Andrea Bocelli on Abortion
I want to tell you a little story. This is how the story goes, a young pregnant wife has just been hospitalized for an attack of appendicitis. The doctors had to apply ice onto her stomach, and when all the treatment had ended they suggested that she abort her child. They explained that it was the very best solution because her baby would be born with some disability. But, the brave young wife decided not to abort her baby, and her child was born. That woman was my mother, and I am her child. Maybe I'm partisan, but I can say, it was the right choice! And, I hope my story can encourage many mothers that sometimes find themselves in difficult situations, in those moments when life seems so complicated, but want to save the life of their baby. —Andrea Bocelli

Unplanned is the inspiring true story of one woman’s transformation. All that Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women about their reproductive choices. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in. Until the day she saw something that changed everything, leading Abby Johnson to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life, and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America. A transformation indeed.
"...mothers that sometimes find themselves in difficult situations, in those moments when life seems so complicated, but want to save the life of their baby."
Abortion clinics are as close as they can be to Middle schools, High schools, Colleges and Universities, because 52% of all abortions are on women under 25. Our culture is shaped by the young. To end abortion, students have to take the lead. Developing strong student leaders for the pro-life movement is critical.
Why would someone kill their own child?
When you believe there's no God, and you want to do something that's wrong, any excuse will work, until you die.
It’s my body
It’s not a baby anyway
Had too much to drink
Didn't mean to get pregnant
Being pregnant is inconvenient
Acceptable form of birth control
We're not competent parents
Possible infant disabilities
Not ready to be a parent
Rape or incest

Once abortionists have a woman in their grasp, they can’t stand to let her go.
That’s why when one mother changed her mind about aborting her twins, the abortion mill refused to unlock their doors and let her leave.
As the mother paid for the abortion at the front desk, she was already second guessing her decision.
Nonetheless, she ventured through the abortion mill to speak with her so-called abortion “counselor.”
But at that moment, the mother changed her mind about having an abortion. She told her “counselor” that she wanted to choose life for her unborn twins. But the abortion workers refused to let her leave.
They locked their doors, trapping the mother inside the abortion mill, and when she demanded that they give her a refund of her money and let her leave, they instead continued to pressure her to go through with killing her babies.
The abortionists ultimately forced the mother to let them keep half of her money before she could escape their mill.
And although the twins from this story survived a close call with an abortion mill, not all babies are so lucky.
More than sixty-two million little lives have been snuffed out since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion-on-demand in 1973.
You and I must unite to overturn the disastrous Roe v. Wade and end the barbarism once and for all.

New York Legalizes Abortion Up to Baby's Birthday to celebrate the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade
New York legislators stood, cheered and applauded Tuesday night after the state Senate removed restrictions on late-term abortions, allowing unborn babies to be killed up to and including their Birthday.
The Reproductive Health Act passed with a 38-28 vote and was signed into law by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (Democrat).
"Today we are taking a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman's right to make her own decisions about her own personal health, including the ability to access abortion."
/inˈfan(t)əˌsīd/ noun: infanticide; plural: infanticides, as in 60 million children.

"The LORD called me from the womb, from the body of my mother He named my name," Isaiah 49
Remember the one verse from the old song Jesus Loves The Little Children, they are precious in His sight... They are!
If you need help, and would like us to pray for you and your baby, please just ask... we'll pray and help you in any way we can.

BRIEF OF AMICUS CURIAE J. BUDZISZEWSKI IN SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFF/APPELLANT
STATEMENT OF THE ISSUES
(short excerpt of filing)
Whether the district court abused its discretion in denying Plaintiff/Appellant Sandra Cano’s Rule 60 motion given the evidence that, among other things, the violation of conscience worked by abortion has profoundly destructive consequences on women?
SUMMARY OF THE ARGUMENT
The Court should re-evaluate Doe v. Bolton, 410 U.S. 179 (1973), and its companion case Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), because of the destructive effect of abortions on women who have them. Certain foundational moral beliefs are so deeply rooted in the human moral intellect that it is impossible for the normal adult not to hold them. Among these is the wrong of deliberately taking innocent human life. Because of this, a woman who takes the life of her child violates her own conscience – even if, in the foreground of moral awareness, she considers abortion to be morally licit. Conscience is not a mere passive barrier or inhibition, but an active force that avenges itself upon attempts to violate its integrity. For this reason, the woman's violation of her own conscience brings about profoundly destructive consequences. The affidavits of post-abortive women filed by Plaintiff/Appellant Sandro Cano (“Cano”) in the district court confirm and illustrate these consequences.
The Court Should Re-Evaluate Doe v. Bolton And Its Companion Case Roe v. Wade Because Of The Destructive Effect Of Abortion On Women Who Have Them...
The wrong of deliberately taking innocent human life is so profoundly lodged in the human moral intellect that it is impossible for the normal adult woman not to experience participation in abortion as an assault on her own conscience. To be sure, a woman who participates in abortion may talk herself into a justification for abortion that seems adequate at the time. The problem is that such justifications do not achieve conviction "all the way down." Whatever conviction they bring about may be emotionally charged, but lies only on the surface, and the structures of deep conscience rebel. The resulting interior conflict is profoundly damaging to the woman who has had the abortion. As the above analysis leads one to expect – and as the affidavits of post- abortive women filed with the district court in this case confirm and illustrate – such damage manifests itself in such forms as remorse, shame, self-accusation, self-hatred, and anger; inconsolable feelings of grief, loss, and regret; nightmares, depression, and anxiety; numbness, withdrawal, avoidance, and difficulty in thinking clearly; the sense that one must atone, or pay a debt; efforts to carry out such atonement, including suicide and other self-destructive behavior; fear of punishment by God; abuse of alcohol or drugs, either to medicate one's pain or to further atone for one's deed; disturbances in relationships with men, with children (including one's own), and with people in general; profound mistrust of self as well as others; and, finally, collapse of the justifying script. Insofar as abortion brings about such profoundly destructive effects on women who participate in them, a pivotal assumption of Doe v. Bolton and its companion case Roe v. Wade – that a right to abortion upholds the well being of women – is called radically into question. The case should therefore be remanded for a full hearing on the Rule 60 Motion or, in the alternative, the judgment of the district court reversed and Cano’s motion be granted.
