Who is Steven Brigham?

Steven Brigham arrest 2011

Inside a dingy storeroom, officers pried open a freezer filled with red bio hazard bags that contained thirty-five advanced-gestation fetuses—medical remains that had not yet been disposed of. Some of the fetuses were past twenty-four weeks’ gestation, the point of viability. This ghoulish discovery triggered a grand-jury investigation...- The New Yorker

Does that sound familiar? But this terrible scene isn't from Kermit Gosnell's House of Horrors. 

This is the atrocity in Steven Brigham's abortion facility that led to his arrest and charge for 10 counts of murder… but not for long. Brigham posted bail and is currently operating abortion facilities up and down the East Coast, even though he has lost his medical license in nearly all these states.

We all saw what happened in Pennsylvania when politicians provided special protection for the abortion industry. 

Now, Governor Terry McAuliffe’s plan would protect Virginia’s Gosnell.

Abortion facility safety regulations signed into law by former Gov. McDonnell were designed to protect Virginia women from Gosnell-like abortionists such as Steven Brigham. Brigham continues his dangerous practice of beginning late-term abortions in Virginia then transporting women across state lines to his facility in Maryland where he finishes the abortion.

Now Terry McAuliffe has replaced 5 members of the Virginia Board of Health with his chosen appointees, and asked them to reconsider Virginia’s life-saving regulations requiring abortion facilities to meet basic medical safety standards.

The Board of Health meeting – where they will debate rolling back these women's safety laws – is happening right now. Will you speak out for women and unborn babies against the McAuliffe administration and the late-term abortion industry?

Virginia residents, click here to tell Gov. McAuliffe to stop the special treatment of Steven Brigham, Virgnia’s Gosnell.

Not a Virginia resident? Raise awareness by sharing this on social media.

Abortion facility safety regulations that protect women and their unborn children have been enacted in several states. If Terry McAuliffe caters to the abortion industry’s lobbying and overturns these pro-life laws, pro-abortion governors across America will follow his example

Make no mistake, all eyes are on Virginia. Please consider making a donation to our efforts to fight Terry McAuliffe’s protection for abortionists in Virginia and tell the nation the safety of women and their unborn children comes first.

Remembering Maya Angelou, a teen mom who chose Life

Yesterday, celebrated writer and poet Maya Angelou passed away, leaving a rich literary legacy behind... and a son, Guy Johnson. 

While you may have heard of Guy, an accomplished author himself, you may not know Maya was a single teen parent, and could have had an abortion. Instead, Maya chose life for Guy, and years later would tell Oprah, "My greatest blessing has been the birth of my son."

Here is the story of Maya and Guy in her own words, originally published in Family Circle Magazine.

Maya Angelou and son

“When I was 16, a boy in high school evinced interest in me, so I had sex with him — just once. And after I came out of that room, I thought, Is that all there is to it? My goodness, I’ll never do that again! Then, when I found out I was pregnant, I went to the boy and asked him for help, but he said it wasn’t his baby and he didn’t want any part of it.

I was scared to pieces. Back then, if you had money, there were some girls who got abortions, but I couldn’t deal with that idea. Oh, no. No. I knew there was somebody inside me. So I decided to keep the baby.

My older brother, Bailey, my confidant, told me not to tell my mother or she’d take me out of school. So I hid it the whole time with big blouses! Finally, three weeks before I was due, I left a note on my stepfather’s pillow telling him I was pregnant. He told my mother, and when she came home, she calmly asked me to run her bath.

I’ll never forget what she said: “Now tell me this — do you love the boy?” I said no. “Does he love you?” I said no. “Then there’s no point in ruining three lives. We are going to have our baby!”

What a knockout she was as a mother of teens. Very loving. Very accepting. Not one minute of recrimination. And I never felt any shame.

I’m telling you that the best decision I ever made was keeping that baby! Yes, absolutely. Guy was a delight from the start — so good, so bright, and I can’t imagine my life without him.

At 17 I got a job as a cook and later as a nightclub waitress. I found a room with cooking privileges, because I was a woman with a baby and needed my own place. My mother, who had a 14-room house, looked at me as if I was crazy! She said, “Remember this: You can always come home.” She kept that door open. And every time life kicked me in the belly, I would go home for a few weeks.

I struggled, sure. We lived hand-to-mouth, but it was really heart-to-hand. Guy had love and laughter and a lot of good reading and poetry as a child. Having my son brought out the best in me and enlarged my life. Whatever he missed, he himself is a great father today. He was once asked what it was like growing up in Maya Angelou’s shadow, and he said, “I always thought I was in her light.”

Years later, when I was married, I wanted to have more children, but I couldn’t conceive. Isn’t it wonderful that I had a child at 16? Praise God!”

Live Action launches investigative campaign against Planned Parenthood

The “war on women” is a phrase that is used regularly by Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocates to describe the prolife movement. But according to Live Action, Planned Parenthood needs to look no further than their own front doors to find the real war on women. 

This Wednesday, Live Action held a press conference introducing their comprehensive investigative report detailing the past six years of their undercover investigations inside Planned Parenthood. The report titled “Lies, Corruption and Scandal,” was distributed to every member of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The website was also launched concurrently with the distribution.

Live Action’s report highlights institutionalized corruption In Planned Parenthood including the cover-up of statutory rape, acceptance of donations to fund race based abortions, and aiding sex trafficking. Lila Rose, the President of Live Action, called this report an “explosive, shocking and comprehensive view of what our nation has allowed.” 

With the illumination of these atrocities, I think that we can all agree that something must be done.  At a minimum, it is time that all lawmakers, Republicans and Democrats alike, step away from politics and take an objective look at what Planned Parenthood is really doing and if this work merits over half a billion taxpayer dollars each year.  

View the full report here.
