At age eight, Ramona Trevino climbed to the top of a roof and begged God to let her know he was real. After receiving a sign, she made a pact with herself to follow him always. But family difficulties and growing pains made it hard for her to continue on that path.
Pregnant at 16, she dropped out of high school and entered an abusive marriage, which ended in divorce. Wanting to make a difference and to help girls in similar tough situations, she accepted a job as the manager of a Planned Parenthood facility in Sherman, Texas. Over time, however, Trevino began to grapple with whether she was doing women more harm than good, setting her on a path to seek the truth, no matter where it might lead.
Realizing she could no longer refer women for abortions or provide them with false assurances of risk-free sex, Trevino took a leap of faith and left the financial security of her job. Her ultimate conversion involved a full return to the Catholic faith of her childhood and a new role as a pro-life advocate and speaker.
Trevino is one of hundreds of former abortion practitioners and abortion center staffers who are now pro-life and she will stare her story in a webcast on Monday, February 16 at 9 p.m. ET @ http://redeemedbygracewebcast.com/

November 6, 2014: Ten years ago, the very first 40 Days for Life campaign was conducted outside the Planned Parenthood abortion center in Bryan/College Station, Texas. Last year, it became the 37th abortion facility to shut down following 40 Days for Life campaigns outside their doors (22 more have closed since then). Today, that building is about to become the NEW HEADQUARTERS of 40 Days for Life!
Short-term plans include a memorial service for the children lost to abortion inside the building, and tearing down the tall, black iron fence surrounding the property as part of renovations.
The new 40 Days for Life headquarters will be used to help many more communities end abortion. The building will also house Hope Pregnancy Center, an affiliate of CareNet, as they expand their local medical services to include free STD testing. “The partnership between the two organizations demonstrates the close relationship between 40 Days for Life and life-saving pregnancy resource centers,” Carney said.
40 Days for Life has more than 9,500 confirmed saves (babies whose mothers changed their minds because of the pray-ers outside the clinic they were going to enter). In addition, 59 abortion centers that had 40 Days for Life campaigns outside their doors are now closed.
Starting in January 2015, pro-life advocates will have control of both the House and Senate and a real opportunity to pass pro-life bills or put pro-life language into must-pass legislation. Instead of having Harry Reid covering his butt, President Obama will have to either sign pro-life bills or veto them and face the music.

Identification of these candidates was made by LifeNews, not me.
This election of pro-life candidates is in line with American opinion. In March 2014, a new CNN poll was released showing 20% of Americans say abortion should ALWAYS be illegal and 38% saying MOST abortions should be illegal — i.e., 58% of Americans oppose all or virtually all abortions. Only 27% of Americans side with Planned Parenthood and President Barack Obama in saying abortions should always be legal at any time and for any reason. Another 13 percent say abortion should be legal in most cases.
Crescendo has won 15 international film festival awards and raised almost $6 million for crisis pregnancy centers. It is now available free of charge on YouTube. I hope you’ll find time to watch it. It’s unforgettable.
Posted Oct 20, 2014:
Last week, a Sidewalk Counselor spoke with a woman who was leaving the Planned Parenthood abortion facility. They went to a nearby place and talked for 45 minutes. The woman, “Mel,” said that she was pregnant but found out that her baby no longer had a heartbeat.
She was told by her doctor that she had to go to Planned Parenthood to have the baby removed. Mel felt very distraught, as she was pro-life and did NOT want to go there. She and her husband desperately wanted another baby (they have a 9 year old). The Sidewalk Counselor told her about a nearby pregnancy center where she could get help and they could find a life-affirming doctor for her right away.
Mel was so relieved to receive this info, however, before she left, she just HAD to tell the SWC about her experience inside the waiting room of the abortion facility.
Mel sat in the waiting area and began to comfort a woman who was sobbing. She told Mel that she was there for an abortion but was very confused. Mel told her that she needn’t feel pressured into getting an abortion, that she should be absolutely sure about her decision.
THEN, a third woman sitting in the waiting room came over to them crying after she overheard their conversation.
Mel told them she’d give anything to be in their place, because she wanted a baby but that the child she was carrying was not alive. One of the women stood up and told them, “that’s it – there is no way I can go through with an abortion!” She chose LIFE!!!! Just then, workers came into the waiting area and scolded Mel, telling her “DON’T TALK TO ANYONE!” Talk about choice, huh?
Please pray for all the pregnant women in our community who are considering abortion, and please pray for the abortion facility workers!

The Portland video is the third in a series. Previous SexEd installments showed Planned Parenthood locations in Indianapolis and Denver offering similarly disturbing advice to investigators posing as minor girls. Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, under whose jurisdiction the Denver facilities lie, is now being sued for sending a 13-year-old abuse victim back to her abuser after aborting her baby.
The abortionist in the video below, Dennis Christensen, is 71 years old now and wants to retire. After snuffing out approximately 100,000 innocent lives, he says he is so committed to killing unborn babies that he’s set it as a condition of retirement that he find a younger doctor to take over his practice. So far, he hasn’t had any takers, because abortion is so stigmatized by other physicians that young doctors don’t want to do it.
The issue of his retirement may soon become moot anyway. Wisconsin passed a law last year requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. As per SOP, Planned Parenthood sued to block the law from taking effect. But the U.S. District court is expected to rule and if the law is found constitutional, Christensen’s clinic will be out of business. No hospital will give the scumbag admitting privileges. Maybe it’s because he had his license suspended in 2007 for abusing painkillers?
WARNING: This video is extremely graphic.

I took 3 screenshots from this video that I was going to put here, but I found them so disturbing, I decided to spare you. The important point I got out of watching this is the callous attitude Christensen exhibits while he’s showing off dead baby parts.
