It's A Boy! Welcoming a Baby Spared from Abortion

Image
It was only back in March when Austin and I met Daneshia. (previously we used the alias “Dakota” for privacy, but she gave permission to use her real name) She cancelled her abortion appointment, walked with me to the pregnancy resource center, and a couple days later told me she was keeping the baby. Two weeks ago, we took her shopping for baby supplies with the money several gave specifically to help her with this little one.  
Daneshia was due on 10/15 but in the early morning on 9/15/19 her water broke. A few hours later baby Dreden was born! One month early, he weighed 7lbs. 3oz. and was 19” long. Austin and I just met little Dreden at the hospital. I wish you could have been there! He has a full head of soft, dark, curly hair, and is just perfect.  God is so good! I’ve prayed for several years that I would get to hold and meet a baby that God spared from abortion through our work. 
Today He said yes to that prayer and I am in tears.
God is using you, my support team, to make all of…

"Abortion Stains You” - Conversations with Abortion Minded Moms

Image
“Last time we did this, we met Dakota,” * my friend Austin said this morning as we pulled out of our office, driving to a local abortion facility. (See P.S.)  We prayed together before arriving, and I told God that though we’re honored to serve Him in this way, we wish it was not necessary. Thirteen babies die in our city every day, and we try to talk to each of those babies’ parents every Friday morning. Today was especially encouraging because two moms who came considering abortion, left and headed to the local pregnancy resource center.
Then I met Abbie* who was just leaving her abortion consultation. She has 3 born children and was overwhelmed to find out that her 4th was on the way. I talked about ways that we can help her, and about the value and gift this little one is. I told her, “You have 3 children, you’ve seen their ultrasounds, so you know that this is a little human growing inside of you.” She nodded, agreeing, but said that she was going to decide [to abort or not] withi…

Lesbian Becomes Anti-Abortion: Sees Her Need For Christ

Image
During this week’s Day of Action I met Winter. After talking a few minutes, she changed her mind on abortion - saying that she had never considered this from the baby’s view.

Winter began to tell me about herself. She loosely calls herself a Christian, is lesbian, and hopes that God will forgive her because of her good works. I asked if I could give her a “good person test,” and after going through 3 of the 10 commandments, she understood her guilt before God.
I shared the gospel with Winter and explained how our only hope of Salvation is through the finished work of Jesus Christ, not in ourselves. I described the transaction that took place in my life, the exchange of my sins for Christ’s Righteousness.

“Winter, has this transaction happened in your life?” I asked.

“No.” She said, troubled. “I walk on the outside [of Christianity]. I’ve been going to a local church but they’re too accepting of me. What you’re saying is making me think that maybe I should go somewhere where I’m uncomforta…

"The value of a life cannot be compared to any annual salary." - Recently Unemployed Christian

Image
Today, I informed my manager that I am stepping down… I cannot work for a company that services Planned Parenthood. Your work makes a difference because I had no idea Stericycle serviced Planned Parenthood-- until Created Equal showed up to protest the company.[BELOW PHOTO]
I am Christian, and images of little frozen babies getting incinerated began flooding my mind. This is the highest-paying position I've had in the legal field, but the value of a life cannot be compared to any annual salary.” – Stericycle Employee 


Since 2016 Created Equal has been working to expose Stericycle, America’s largest medical waste hauler, and putting pressure on them to cease disposing of dead babies for the abortion industry. Why? Abortionist Renee Chelian once admitted the weak link of their industry: “We are all one incinerator away, one incineration company away from being closed.” So, we’ve been working to break that weak link. If we don’t persuade these medical waste companies to stop servicing …

Pregnant Women Have Two Heads - Science Deniers Turn Violent

Image
During high school outreaches as students walk/drive home we ask the student’s thoughts on abortion. We hear many of the same responses we often hear: it’s a woman’s choice, it should be kept legal, it’s a right. Though at high schools more than any other place, we hear students say that they don’t know what they think, and they let us make the case against abortion: 1) It’s always wrong to intentionally kill an innocent human 2) Abortion intentionally kills innocent humans 3) Therefore, abortion is always wrong
Often, I’ll expound on either of the first two points, going into the details of embryology, biology, and absolute moral laws. High school outreaches have fast become a favorite outreach of many on the Created Equal team because we are more often received with an open mind and heart. This was not the case last week. Morgan and another high school student brought up every situation that they thought would justify abortion, but they continually had to deny science to do so. They mad…

Passage of the Heartbeat Bill and the Moral Myopia of the Left

Image
On April 11th, 2019, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed into law a “Heartbeat Bill” that requires abortion facilities to use ultrasound equipment that can detect a preborn baby’s heartbeat as early as 6 weeks and bans all abortions of those babies with detectable heartbeats. In opposition, a democratic Rep. cited the historical oppression of African Americans and proposed an amendment that would exempt these moms, allowing their babies to be aborted. Created Equal’s president, Mark Harrington’s articulate response was impeccable:
“To reference owning humans as a defense of dismembering them is moral myopia. If it is wrong to own humans, it is also wrong to intentionally kill them.”
Thankfully that amendment failed, and this bill will still save African American babies. We know that this legislation is not enough, we need to end intentionally killing ANY and ALL innocent children, not just those with detectable heartbeats, but we are still celebrating because after this is battled in court…

The Best Text EVER... "I Have Decided to Keep the Baby."

On this year’s Justice Ride, March 2-9, we took a charter bus of 50+ students to FL, gave them training in pro-life apologetics, and brought them onto campuses to begin learning how to put their beliefs into action. My brother Joshua came on the Ride for the first time! It was SO good to spend the week with him. =) 
He along with many other first-time riders were way out of their comfort zone, but were making personal sacrifices to do what they knew was right. I love to watch our students grow in confidence, learn what it means to be a winsome apologist, give a reasoned defense,defend the faith, and actively engage our Godless culture. 
Also, the Lord allowed us to see some fruit of our work: 206 people -that we know of - changed their minds on abortion during those 5 days of outreach, and that’s only those who were humble enough to admit it! 
We also prayed outside of a Tampa abortion facility and offered help to the moms going inside. Because of our witness, a mom at the facility decid…
