"Images May Be Disturbing," thoughts on the Duggar's miscarriage

Recently, Michelle Duggar had a miscarriage at 19 weeks during her pregnancy.  For those who don't know the Duggars, they are a Christian family with 19 children.  You can see their website and info about their TLC tv show here:  It was sad news to hear about Michelle's miscarriage.  The Duggar's named their baby Jubilee Shalom.

Recently, the Duggar's had a funeral and memorial service for Jubilee.  At the memorial service they displayed pictures that were taken of Jubilee by the group Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.  Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep is a group that provides photographers to document stillborns or the short lives of babies that die in the hospital shortly after birth.

Here is a picture from the Duggar's website of Jubilee's little hand holding Michelle's finger.
The Duggar's obviously value every human life and are grieving the loss of their child.  I pray that the Duggar family will find peace during this time of sorrow.

I think this situation highlights how amazingly different people value human life.  This baby was 19 weeks old, was given a name, was loved by her family, and was given a funeral.  At places like Leroy Carhart's abortion facility at Germantown Reproductive Health Services, babies well past 24 weeks are brought in by their mothers, given a lethal injection, and thrown in the trash as medical waste.  These lives are not medical waste, they are children that should be given a chance at life!

To further illustrate this point, after reading an article published on about the Duggars and Jubilee, I came across the website TMZ that published the photos from Jubilee's memorial service.  Below is a picture from the TMZ website:
Really?  Images of a family loving and grieving their 19 week old child "may be disturbing?"  Is the picture at the top of this post with Jubilee's hand on Michelle's finger "disturbing?"  What I find to be even more disturbing and tragic is the image I saw after clicking to see more photos.  After clicking to see more photos, this is what I saw.  Warning, the below image is disturbing.

The image is not disturbing because of the picture of Jubilee's tiny feet.  It is disturbing because of the filth published next to it in the "most recent" advertisement on the TMZ website.  There is something drastically wrong with a society that finds pictures of a 19 week babies feet being lovingly held by their grieving mother "disturbing."  When on the other hand, pictures of women being degraded and portrayed as nothing more than a piece of meat to be paraded around, is normal and accepted.  

We need to continue to pray for our society.  We need to pray that every life will be cherished and that our society will treat women with the respect they deserve.

Open letter to LeRoy Carhart

Dear LeRoy Carhart, M.D.,

Every human heart is made for joy—including yours. If you do not have joy as the core of your life, then you do not really know God. I'm not talking about mirth, excitement, or temporary happiness. I'm talking about an abiding joy and peace that, in your heart of hearts, makes you glad you're alive because life is precious and glorious. We are all made for that kind of joy. It's the summit of the Christian life; it is life to the fullest.

Your life cannot be full of joy if it is stained with blood. Why? Because God did not bring death into the world. Death is the wages of sin. So dealers in death are employed not in God's work, but in the work of Satan, the Accuser, the Deceiver, the Father of Lies. Death can only bring more death; it kills not only the body, but mortally wounds the soul of those who participate in it. God wants to free you from the bondage of death. He wants to give you hope and joy. But whatever you do to the least ones—the helpless innocents—you do to Him. You cannot be doing God's work, because the work you do breaks God's heart. What you do does not help women. Pregnancy is not a problem to be solved or a disease to be cured. Pregnancy centers, free health care provided by charities, adoption agencies, and organizations like the Gabriel Network help women. Why can't you help them without killing? Have you ever asked yourself that?

Every human heart is made for joy—including the heart you stop from beating by lethal injection. You cut life short before it even has the chance to find out why life is worth living. Think of your grown daughter. Is her life worth living? Do you want her to know joy? What makes her life any more sacred than all the others? Because she's yours? But the truth is she's not yours. She belongs to God. We all do. God gave each of us life and he called it Good. We have no right to take the life of any human being, no matter how inconvenient, even if it means sacrificing our own life to save the life of another. Life is precious. Your life is precious. Don't throw it away while there is still a chance to redeem it.

Jesus died to give you life. But if you continue to kill, then you remain one of his unrepentant crucifiers—and nothing can save you from the death you yourself have earned by your sins. You were made for joy. Humble yourself before the Lord, recognizing your need to be saved from the bondage of sin and death, and that true freedom of joy and peace will be yours for all eternity.

Praying for you daily.

In the arms of Mercy,
Cathy Kelly 
Respect Life Committee, Coordinator
Mother Seton Parish 
Germantown, MD

Leroy Carhart quotation about pliable fetuses!

Late term abortionist Leroy Carhart is continuing to perform second and third trimester abortions in Germantown, Maryland at Germantown Reproductive Health Services.  In Maryland an abortion can legally be perform up to the minute before birth for reasons such as a mother being "distressed due to an unwanted pregnancy." 

It is truly heart breaking to see these women going into the clinic knowing they are there to kill their viable babies.  If you are thinking about having an abortion at Germantown Reproductive Health Services, I will personally adopt your baby! Seriously, email me.

What is also heart breaking is the attitude of Leroy Carhart.  Here is a quotation from Leroy Carhart in which he describes the babies he has murdered.

• “Well, I was telling Ms. Smith at lunch today that we’re talking about a fetus that’s not only been dead for 48 hours, but we’re talking about a fetus that has been dead for 48 hours in essentially a warming oven or crock pot. It has been kept at a hundred degrees for 48 hours. And that’s enough temperature to cook meat. So we are not only dealing with a fetus that has been dead in my practice, we are dealing with a fetus that’s both dead and soft—so it’s much more pliable.”-LeRoy Carhart, testifying under oath on the safety of his abortion methods, in a deposition taken for Carhart v. Ashcroft, April 1, 2004.
Please join us during our Fall 40 Days for Life campaign as we continue to pray for an end to abortion.

Summer of Mercy 2.0

The Summer of Mercy 2.0 had over 3,000 people participate during the 9 days!  Every week night during the Summer of Mercy, a different church led the time of prayer.  It was tremendous to see so many churches and parishes come together to pray for Leroy Carhart.  We are praying that his eyes will be open to see that he is ending the lives of human beings and not of a "parasite."  We are praying he will be convicted of his sin and find the peace and forgiveness that can only come through Jesus Christ!

The greatest destroyer of peace and love is abortion, which is war against the child.  We are praying that these women will stop sacrificing their children to their idols!

Mothers Day 2011

Leroy Carhart, his staff, and a car with three women from Pennsylvania were at Germantown Reproductive Health Services on Sunday night, Mothers Day 2011.  We believe Carhart and his staff were performing a late term abortion procedure on Mothers Day.  Please continue to join us as we pray for an end to abortion.  Pray that Carhart and his staff will no longer end the lives of babies that are able to survive outside the mothers womb.

Thank you to all of the mothers who have chosen life.  Please pray for the women who ended the lives of their babies this Mothers day and will have to live with this decision for the rest of their lives.  Pray that the women faced with an unwanted pregnancy will know that abortion is not their only option.  We are hear to help these women and provide them with what they need to care for their baby and/or provide the baby with a loving home once they are born.  Please join us as we pray for Dr. Leroy Carhart!
