The show. Let's talk about the show. I was thrilled to have someone do my makeup. Very fun. Very cool. I was the first interview of this 5th season of Faces of Abortion. It went really well, I thought. It is meant to be a conversation with the host and I, as we talk about my abortion experience. 9 minutes later I heard one of the cameramen say, "We're out!" I was done. I cannot talk about my babies(Aubrey who was aborted, Jamie and Lee lost through miscarriage)without crying. The grieving process continues. I was relieved to be finished and I got to sit back and watch all of the other interviews and see how a tv show is made. Amazing. I must say that I found all of the abortion experiences so hard to bear. I cried through much of the first day. And much of the second day of taping. All of the glory goes to God for His forgiveness and grace, but I have never felt so emotionally drained. I met so many amazing people. I love them all. Each and every single one. When you meet others who share an abortion experience and have found forgiveness in Jesus it is like coming home. We laughed as much as we cried. Of course some of the laughter had to do with my being from Wisconsin and the whole cheese head, Packer thing and an alleged accent. Whatev. :)

I am so grateful for this amazing opportunity to share my story.

I am happy to report that all 3 times that I have gone to Texas for OO stuff, I have sat next to a Christian man. A divine appointment, if you will. This trip was no exception. They all asked me what I was doing in Texas and I told them about the show. Each one listened to my story, told me how amazed they were and asked for my card. One asked if he could pray for me. Abortion is not easy to talk about, especially when responses can be negative but I truly felt heard by total strangers! Well, they are not strangers anymore.

Thank you Jeff, Tim, Bob and James. You have affirmed the path that God has before me and I will continue to do all I can to get the word out that abortion hurts women.

Faces of Abortion

I leave this Wednesday for Texas. I am flying to Texas to be a guest on the show Faces of Abortion and will be telling my abortion story. If you have Dish it is on SkyAngel. I will let you know when it will be aired. I am getting nervous! For now, pray that my cold goes away, I don't forget to pack deoderant and that I make my flights. Oh, and that my dear husband and my four cherubs do a splendid job taking care of each other.

Photo Op

I went to Dallas in April for an Operation Outcry conference and these are some pictures. The first one is Carla and Norma McCorvey, the Roe of Roe V Wade. The second one is Carla and Eduardo Verestuegi, the lead actor in the movie Bella. Good times.

Let me be very clear on this. Obama is not prolife!! He may sound like it. He may say that abortion is a "morally wrenching" decision between a woman, her doctor and her pastor.(and if you don't have a doctor or a pastor??!!)He is proabortion. He has a 0% prolife voting record in the Illinois Senate. He voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Babies that survive abortion are not entitled to medical care. So he thinks. One only has to google his voting record.

Here is an article all about BAIPA-

Now that he is the Democratic presidential nominee, we have our work cut out for us.

I stood with 5 other women last night at the rally for Obama. We were right in the thick of it with our signs that said I Regret My Abortion. I am still amazed that I did that! It was exciting and horrifying at the same time. I was proud to stand for the unborn, stand for life and stand with my sisters. I was horrified at some of the reactions of people. One mom came up with her two daughters and started in. Yelling, swearing, pointing her finger in our faces. She said, "My daughter just had an abortion and it's the best thing she has ever done!" The daughter who had not had an abortion started yelling about separation of church and state and what were we thinking standing with those signs??!! Also, this daughter went on and on about just who is going to adopt all of these unwanted babies?! My might have had an abortion and justifies her own through her daughter's abortion. Others were just as openly hostile. One woman yelled at me from her car that women who are raped don't have a choice. I tried to explain but when one is so irrational how can you?? Some walked by and said Freedom of Choice, Keep Your Laws off My Body, I Don't Regret Mine, Keep it Safe and Legal. A man walked by and asked, "Did you kill your baby?" I told him yes. He laughed right in my face. I noticed they did not stop to chat but yelled as they went by. I watched as many people read my sign, looked into my eyes and quickly looked away. There were people that did not know why we were there. They did not have a clue that Obama is proabortion.

Better things were said. We received many God Bless Yous and Keep It Up and I Am So Glad You Are Here!! Warmed my heart. Others actually came and spoke respectfully about why they were proabortion. Imagine that. Getting your point across without screaming and swearing. Huh.

I was interviewed by the Star Tribune and tons of people took our pictures. For what I am not sure. I am wondering if I should be worried about that. :)

I am earnestly in prayer today for those whose hearts are hardened and whose experiences with abortion come out with such hatred and anger. I witnessed much pain on the faces of others. I am honored to pray for their healing.

I am grateful to those that went with me!! Love you!!

Obama is coming to St. Paul tonight and some girls and I will be there. We will be standing with our, I Regret My Abortion signs as a silent witness for the unborn.
