Michael Bowman is a staunch advocate against the practice of abortion. Like millions of other Americans, he believes that each life is precious and made in the image of God. So, citing his constitutional right to religious freedom, he is taking a stand and refusing to pay his taxes until the federal government ceases to fund abortion procedures.
But this isn’t anything new for Bowman — the 53-year-old engineer has refused to file a tax return or pay taxes since 1999.
“I’m not a tax protester. I love my country,” he told the Oregonian. “I have a duty to my country. I have a duty to my conscience.”
The IRS claims Bowman owes over $350,000 in unpaid taxes. So, when they started taking money out of his account, Bowman came up with a cunning plan: he promptly cashed his paychecks and left just a small amount in his account. That way, tax officials couldn’t get their hands on his money… more
Court Rules Ohio Taxpayers Must Fund Planned Parenthood
Kelly Clemente found out she was pregnant when she was 18. She had just finished her first semester of college, and up until then, described herself as your typical “all-American girl.”
She got good grades, was a member of a sorority, and ran on the track team.
When she saw that pregnancy test, “My life is over,” she thought.
“I was like, it doesn’t even matter. Nothing matters anymore,” Kelly told The Daily Signal.
Kelly, unlike most girls her age, was familiar with the implications of an unplanned pregnancy. In high school, she volunteered at HOPE in Northern Virginia, a nonprofit that creates gift baskets for mothers faced with an unplanned pregnancy.
Although she shared compassion for them, Kelly had bought into the stigmas about birth moms. “I’ll never be one of those women,” she thought.
But she was wrong. At 18, Kelly became an unplanned pregnancy statistic. “I was no better than these women that I was creating baskets for,” she said…. more
Retiring Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards has revealed that she rejected an offer from Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump that would have allowed the organization to retain its federal funding. Her refusal came down to one central condition: that the clinics stop performing abortions.

“The main issue, [Kushner] explained, was abortion,” wrote Richards in her new memoir, as quoted by PEOPLE. “If Planned Parenthood wanted to keep our federal funding, we would have to stop providing abortions. He described his ideal outcome: a national headline reading ‘Planned Parenthood Discontinues Abortion Services.’”
Richards went on to allege that Kushner and Trump were there “to deliver a political win” and claimed that she firmly rejected their offer because she believed it was “essentially being asked to barter away women’s rights for more money.”… more
What part of this baby looks like an it or thing? This is a human person and God says do not murder. Lord Jesus open their eyes and Lord go after planned parenthood! We cannot express how THIS SADDENS OUR HEARTS TO THE CORE!
Psalm 82:3 Vindicate the weak and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and destitute.
What Has Abortion Done To Our Country and The People
This should not be surprising and it definitely did not happen overnight. We are seeing the consequences of selling sin and death for years. In 1973 I was 17 still in high school and found myself pregnant. I finished high school during my pregnancy and endured hardship. My mother did not take this …more
Two of New York’s Finest helped to make a very special Easter delivery on Sunday when they helped a woman deliver her baby on the side of a New York City street.
On Sunday morning, the NYPD officers responded to a car that was parked on the side of the road on the Upper East Side, where they found a woman in labor, WABC reported.
The officers were flagged down by the husband, and the woman was complaining of extreme pressure, NYPD Officer Stephan Koustoubardis told WABC.
Training then “kicked in,” he said… more
beautiful story 🙂
Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Just to show how crazy things are getting with the reprobate minded. This is not a natural function of the male body, so I’m thinking that the “milk” is most like some form of poison with all the drugs in the body. Mankind now is intent on destroying every part of God’s creation. This is an all-out assault on many fronts against God’s creation to the point man is now the creator!
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
“When a transgender woman told doctors at a hospital in New York that she wanted to breast-feed her pregnant partner’s baby, they put her on a regimen of drugs that included an anti-nausea medication licensed in Britain and Canada but banned in the United States…. more
A young couple who were once encouraged by doctors to abort their little baby girl due to her “fatal” heart condition has returned to the same hospital with their bouncing, healthy child.
Back when their unborn daughter, Amnesty, was developing in the womb, married couple Dusty and Krystal Marshall were told she required urgent surgery to repair her spine.
But, when they made it to the medical center for the operation, they were further informed that their baby girl did not qualify for the surgery on account of a heart defect that she had developed…. more
In a newly released proposal, the United States Department of Health and Human Services has added verbiage to its strategic mission that would expressly state that life begins at conception. The language appears in a HHS draft Strategic Plan for 2018 through 2022 and is a pro-life departure from the terms used by previous administrations.
As LiveAction reported, the document previously included the following introduction:
HHS accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving Americans at every stage of life.
In the drafted version dated September 2017, five key words have been added (emphasis ours):
HHS accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving and protecting Americans at every stage of life, beginning at conception…. read more
This is wonderful news! Thank you Lord Jesus, we Praise and Honor your name! Psalm 139:13 For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Carrie DeKlyen sacrificed her life to save her daughter.
It was a decision the 37-year-old mother from Wyoming, Mich., made in May, when she was still conscious but very sick with terminal brain cancer.
Chemotherapy or a clinical trial would almost certainly prolong her life. But both options would mean terminating her pregnancy.
On Wednesday evening, DeKlyen delivered a baby girl named Life. On Thursday morning, doctors removed DeKlyen’s feeding and breathing tubes. Family members gathered at the University of Michigan Hospitals to welcome a new life and say painful good-byes…. read more
