June 6, 2012 (BryanKemper.com) - This last weekend the Troy, Ohio Strawberry festival had to move to downtown Troy because of work on one the two bridges over the river that divides the city.  With the festival being set up downtown it put the Stand True office and missionary apartment right in the heart of the action.

On Saturday morning we got up early and set up a huge pro-life display across the front of our building. We had 5-foot tall banners of each stage of life development creating a 30-foot wide billboard across the front of the building.  It was the perfect position as the most popular item of the Strawberry festival, the strawberry donuts, were being sold next door at the Elks Lodge (over 12,000 dozen donuts were sold).

Along with the life development display we had a literature table with fetal models set up on the sidewalk. As the thousands of festival-goers started to line up for their donuts we were excited by how many people stopped to read through all of the stages of life and really examine the pictures. 

Immediately we noticed how the parents would walk their children down the line and explain to them how they developed in their mom’s womb.  I saw hundreds of pregnant women excited to point out how far along they were and show everyone what their baby looked like.  I want to emphasize that not one person proclaimed what stage their fetus was at, but what stage their baby was at.

We had also set up a table to sell water and lemonade to make a few dollars for the Stand True Summer Mission, and people were buying water and telling us to keep the change for the cause.  Understand this is not a Christian festival and the crowd was just your typical community fair type crowd.

We were commenting to each other about how few negative comments we received over the two days we set up, which we could count on our fingers. The thing that stood out about the few negative comments we got each day was not what they said as much as who said it. Almost every negative comment came from an older woman or a man.

I watched, as parents of a college-age girl were frustrated because their daughter was excited about our display and very vocally pro-life. They were not happy when she put a donation into our jar.  I could see the pain on the faces of a couple of women who were obviously post-abortive as they cursed us for having a display showing life. “Appalling, disgusting, sick”; these are just a few of the words I heard about the beautiful pictures of children developing in the womb.

One guy walked by making jokes about how we should kill lots of babies; his friends were obviously disturbed by his comments. I would not be surprised if this guy has paid for or taken part in pressuring a woman into an abortion.

I was honestly heartbroken as I watched these older women scoffing at what should be something we celebrate. I watched as a grandma was walking with her young granddaughter mumbling curses at us. I wonder how she can look at her beautiful grandchild and still support the killing of innocent children?

Some people try and argue that we saw this divide in age because are based in a small town in Ohio, but that is not the case. I wrote an article back in March about my trip to the March for Life in Brussels, Belgium and how I watched the same thing at the pro-choice march the day before. What I saw there was an aging crowd at the march for abortion and a majority youth crowd at the pro-life march.

Just a couple of years ago the head of NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League) wrote about how she was shocked when she exited a train in Washington, DC and noticed how young the hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers were at the annual March for Life.

The fact is, this generation is more pro-life then ever before and the pro-abortion forces are aging and less and less relevant. Twenty years ago when I wore a pro-life t-shirt on an airplane or in a mall I would get dirty looks or even be asked to turn it inside out or not wear it in certain businesses. Today when I wear my pro-life t-shirts I am constantly complimented and asked where I got the shirt.

Yes there are remnants of young women who have been lied to and made to think that the pro-life movement is waging a war on theml; however the true war is being waged on them by the very lie they are supporting. The abortion industry relies on the deception that pro-life is somehow an assault against the rights of a woman when the actual assault is the destruction of the gift of motherhood though abortion.

Women have been given the gift of being able to conceive, carry and give birth. The ironically named feminist movement has reversed that blessing into a curse and convinced so many that abortion is a gift.  They were able to distort the beauty of life in the womb into a burden or disease that needed a cure.  They blurred the line between healthcare and homicide and created an industry of death that rakes in billions of dollars on the blood of their own offspring.

Thankfully there are now young women who have stepped up and cried out and shined the light on the true war on women; young leaders who will reclaim the word feminist and tell women the truth about the beauty of motherhood. I am proud to stand side by side and work with some of the most amazing young women on the planet: Lila Rose, Abby Johnson, Kaitlin Martinez, Kristina Garza, Kristan Hawkins, Elizabeth McClung, Brandi Swendell, Kate Bryan, Elizabeth Hickson; I can go on and on with names of more heroes who are leading this new generation of pro-life women who will change the world.

A great example of a true hero to women is Lila Rose, who recently released videos showing Planned Parenthood coaching women on how to get a sex-selection abortion. While this infuriates most people, the aging and deceived abortion rights movement defends this as a woman’s right. Lila and her Live Action team are exposing these lies; they are showing the world that the selective killing of women is just another facet of the true war on women.

Just last week my wife gave birth to our seventh child and fourth girl. We joked about this child being our tiebreaker as we anxiously waited until her birth to know what sex she was going to be. The day she was born was the day that Live Action released the first video exposing the sex-selection scandal and it really hit home to me.

Coraline is not only a survivor of the abortion holocaust as she is one of seven children in an age when one in four are aborted, she is a survivor as little girls are being targeted for murder in order for families to have boys. It may not be as prevalent here in America as it is in China, but it is happening here also.

My oldest daughter turned 13-years-old a week before her younger sister was born. She is now a teenager. I look at her and pray for God to guide me as I try and raise her into a woman of the caliber of her mother and women like Lila and the rest of our young pro-life heroes I listed. I know it is because of the work of women like Kristen Hawkins and Kristina Garza that my daughter will have true feminist heroes to look up to. I know that seeing the example of a mother who embraces the gift of being a mom she will have a fighting chance of defeating the real war on women.

I may be a man and some may say that my voice or opinion does not matter in this battle. I say that as a true man I not only have the right to raise my voice, but I am obligated to take a stand. As a father I have a responsibility to not only raise my daughters to be heroes for future women but also to support and stand behind the true female heroes that are paving the way for my daughters.

Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry are right, there is a war on woman. The problem is that they are only talking about it to cover up the fact that they are the true aggressor and enemy to women.  Abortion kills thousands of women every single day in America alone and until this war is over and all women are protected, I will be in this battle fighting not just for my daughters but also for all daughters worldwide.

Medical staff arrested in India after accidentally aborting baby at 8 months

A doctor and a nurse at a prominent private hospital in India have been arrested after they allegedly administered abortion drugs to a eight-months pregnant accidentally, resulting in the death of her unborn child.

"We have immediately registered a case and arrested the doctor, whose negligent act has caused this," said South Jammu Superintendent of Police Rahul Malik, according to the Hindustan Times.

The woman's husband, Rakesh Sharma, told the paper that the doctor mistook Shruti Sharma for another patient who was scheduled for an abortion at the JK Medicity Hospital in Jammu on Friday afternoon.

Shruti had gone to the hospital after her gynecologist advised a routine medical examination to safeguard her and her baby's health.

Rakesh alleged that the doctor gave his wife the abortion pills without consulting her medical records. “Doctors and paramedical staff instead of administering glucose, gave her abortion medicine, which was actually meant for another patient,” he said.

"It is the worst case of negligence. I feel strongly that such hospitals should be closed. If this has happened to me today, tomorrow it can happen to any body else," Rakesh said.

While the JK Medicity's administration said it has launched an inquiry into the incident, a report from the Jagran Post stated that the district government has revoked the hospital's license.

"Jammu and Kashmir Government has ordered sealing of the private clinic after suspension of its license to operate in the wake of the incident," said Minister for Health and Medical Education Taj Mohiuddin according to the report.

National media have reported that the incident has brought illegal abortion practices in India to the attention of both the public and government officials.

According to the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, abortion is legal in India up to 20 weeks. However, the opinion of a second doctor is required if the pregnancy is past its 12th week, and abortion-inducing drugs such as mifepristone and misoprostol are allowed only by prescription up until the seventh week of pregnancy.

Moreover, abortions can be performed only in government licensed medical institutions by registered abortionists.

Indian Express reported that the accused in the incident, Dr Amarjeet Singh, practices ayurvedic medicine (traditional Hindu medicine) and is "unsuitable for carrying out abortions."

A video posted by IndiaTV shows the parents surrounded by family members and relatives at a protest outside the JK Medicity hospital where the group is demanding punishment for those involved in the death of the child.

News editor fired for criticizing ‘gay Bible’, files complaint

By Kirsten Anderson

The former editor-in-chief of Iowa’s Newton Daily News has filed a religious discrimination complaint after he was fired over a post on his private blog criticizing the pro-gay Queen James Bible.

The Bible revision was produced by homosexual activists who claim to have edited the eight most commonly cited verses against homosexual behavior “in a way that makes homophobic interpretations impossible.”

On his private blog, which has since been deactivated, Bob Eschliman wrote in April that “the LGBTQXYZ crowd and the Gaystapo” are trying to reword the Bible “to make their sinful nature ‘right with God.’”

After public outcry from homosexual activists, Shaw Media, which owns the paper, fired him on May 6.

In a statement the day of his firing, Shaw Media President John Rung said Eschliman’s “airing of [his opinion] compromised the reputation of this newspaper and his ability to lead it.”

“There will be some who will criticize our action, and mistakenly cite Mr. Eschliman’s First Amendment rights as a reason he should continue on as editor of the Newton Daily News,” Rung said.  “As previously stated, he has a right to voice his opinion. And we have a right to select an editor who we believe best represents our company and best serves the interests of our readers.”

Rung said the company has a duty “to advocate for the communities we serve” and that “to be effective advocates, we must be able to represent the entire community fairly.”

Eschliman, who has been writing professionally since 1998 and became editor-in-chief of the Newton Daily News in 2012, says that the company was aware of his personal blog when he was hired and never indicated it would be a problem for him to continue sharing his personal political and religious views.

In his religious discrimination complaint against the company, filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), he says that he believes he was singled out for termination because of his Christian views concerning homosexuality and same-sex “marriage.”

“As a lifelong writer, I have maintained a personal blog on the Internet with some personal thoughts and writings,” Eschliman wrote. “Newton Daily News, my employer, never had a policy prohibiting personal blogging, Twitter, Facebook, or any other social media. In fact, my employer encouraged us to engage in social media on a personal level and I am aware of several employees of Newton Daily News who continue to blog and are still employed with Shaw Media.”

“There is no question that I was fired for holding and talking about my sincerely held religious beliefs on my personal blog during my off-duty time from the comfort of my own home,” Eschliman wrote. “Shaw Media directly discriminated against me because of my religious beliefs and my identity as an evangelical Christian who believes in Holy Scripture and the Biblical view of marriage.

“Moreover, Shaw Media announced that not only were they firing me based upon my religious beliefs, but that they would not hire or allow anyone to work at Shaw Media who holds religious beliefs similar to mine, which would include an automatic denial of any accommodation of those who share my sincerely held religious beliefs,” he added.

Neither Shaw Media nor the Newton Daily News have been willing to provide further comment to the press on the matter, citing pending litigation.

Matthew Whitaker, an attorney with Liberty Institute who is assisting Eschliman with his complaint, said the law is on his client’s side.

“No one should be fired for simply expressing his religious beliefs,” Whitaker said in a statement. “In America, it is against the law to fire an employee for expressing a religious belief in public.  This kind of religious intolerance by an employer has no place in today’s welcoming workforce.”

According to Whitaker, if the EEOC rules in Eschliman’s favor, Shaw Media could be forced to give him back pay, front pay, and a monetary settlement.

If you find this filthy book in your home, burn it

Jonathon van Maren Jonathon van Maren Follow Jonathon
By Jonathon van Maren

I don’t believe in book-burnings, but for the 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy, I’ll make an exception. I prefer charred books to scarred people.

The 50 Shades of Grey Trilogy, for those of you living outside “civilization,” is a repulsive and poisonous stack of porn novels that celebrates the seduction and manipulation of an insecure girl by a powerful businessman who happens to like spending his recreational time engaging in what is now popularly known as “BDSM.” For those of you who are fortunate enough never to have heard of this glorification of sexual assault, the acronym stands for bondage, domination, sadism, and masochism. In 50 Shades of Grey, the man in question inflicts all sorts of pain on the girl, because he is a sadist, which used to be a bad thing. (How utterly confusing it is to see the “feminists” of Planned Parenthood and elsewhere celebrating this phenomenon—wasn’t domination something they sought to subvert? Didn’t bondage used to be something one wanted to be freed from? And sado-masochism—I could vomit.) And now this trash has been developed into a film, the trailer of which is all over Facebook.

50 Shades of Grey and the new “BDSM” phenomenon are nothing more than the celebration of pain, rape, and destruction.

A lot of people seem to be taken with these books, especially based on the number of people I’ve seen unashamedly reading it at airports. These porn novels are “hot,” many reviewers tell us confidently. Yes, hot as Hell and halfway there, I think.

Consider this, for just a moment: In a culture where broken families are often the norm, we have a generation of girls often growing up without fathers, never receiving the paternal love and affection that they need. Thus the famous “Daddy Issues” that so many comedy sitcoms repulsively mock, as if hurting girls seeking love and affection in all the wrong places is some sort of joke. Conversely, boys are also growing up without fathers, never having a positive male role model in the home to teach them how to treat women with love and respect. And what is teaching them how to treat girls? At an enormous rate, the answer is online pornography, which increasingly features vicious violence against girls and women. The average first exposure of boys to pornography is age eleven. It is an absolutely toxic mess—insecure and hurting girls seek love from boys who have been taught how to treat them by the most vicious of pornography.

Introduce into this situation a book, written by a woman, glorifying the idea that girls should expect or even enjoy pain and torture inside of a sexual relationship. How does a girl, insecure and unsure, know what to think? The culture around her now expects her not to need a safe relationship, but a “safe word” to employ in case her sadist partner gets a bit too carried away in the pain-making. Boys who might never have dreamed of asking a girl to subject herself to such pain and humiliation are now of course emboldened to request or even expect this fetishized sexual assault as a matter of course in a relationship. After all, much of pornography now features this degradation of girls and women, and a woman wrote a book celebrating such things. It might seem sadistic and rapey, but hey, sexual freedom has allowed us to celebrate “bondage” and sexual liberation has allowed us to liberate our darkest demons from the recesses of our skulls and allow them out to play in the bedroom. Boys used to get taught that they shouldn’t hit girls, but now the culture is telling them that it’s actually a turn-on.

I genuinely feel sorry for many teenage girls trying to navigate the new, pornified dating landscape. I genuinely feel sorry for the legions of fatherless boys, exposed to pornography before they even had a chance to realize what it was, enfolded by the tentacles of perverted sexual material before they even realize what, exactly, they are trifling with. It brings to mind something C.S. Lewis once wrote: “Wouldn't it be dreadful if some day in our own world, at home, men start going wild inside, like the animals here, and still look like men, so that you'd never know which were which.”

50 Shades of Grey and the new “BDSM” phenomenon are nothing more than the celebration of pain, rape, and destruction. Find out if the “sex educators” in your area are pushing this garbage, and speak out. Join campaigns to make sure that promotion of this filth isn’t being funded by your tax dollars. And if you find these books in your home, burn them.
