700 Club Interactive: Save a Life – August 19, 2015

A former Planned Parenthood employee says that the undercover videos only scratch the surface of the group’s deception. Read Transcript


Andrew: YOU'VE SEEN

THE VIDEOS --

THEY WOULD JUST TAKE

WHAT THEY WANT.

Andrew: BUT THAT'S

NOT THE HALF OF IT.

IT IS JUST A MATTER OF

LINE ITEMS.

Andrew: AN INSIDER

REVEALS WHAT IS REALLY

GOING ON AN PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

I COULD JUST FEEL DEATH

AND PAIN.

Andrew: ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

GOOD MORNING, AND WELCOME

TO THE SHOW.

WHEN DOES LIFE BEGIN?

AT CONCEPTION?

WHEN THE HEART BEGINS TO

BEAT?

OR AT BIRTH?

ON TODAY'S SHOW, WE'RE

GOING TO HEAR FROM PEOPLE

WHO HAVE CHANGED THEIR

MINDS ON THIS VERY TOPIC.

Terry: SINCE THE

RELEASE OF MULTIPLE

UNDERCOVER VIDEOS EXPOSING

THE SELLING OF BABY BODY

PARTS BY PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, MANY AMERICANS

ARE ALSO TAKING ANOTHER

LOOK AT WHAT THEY BELIEVE.

CBN'S CAITLIN BURKE

EXPLORES SOME OF THE

DISTURBING QUESTIONS THESE

VIDEOS HAVE RAISED.

Reporter: NO MATTER

WHERE PEOPLE STAND ON

ABORTION, RECENT VIDEOS

FROM THE CENTERS FOR

MEDICAL PROGRESS HAVE SENT

SHOCKWAVES THROUGH BOTH

SIDES OF THE ISSUE.

IF THERE WAS A HIGHER

GESTATION, AND THE

TECHNICIANS NEEDED IT,

THERE WERE TIMES WHERE

THEY WOULD JUST TAKE WHAT

THEY WANT.

AND THESE MOTHERS DON'T

KNOW.

AND THERE IS NO WAY THEY

WOULD KNOW.

Reporter: WHEN A

MOTHER TO BE COMES TO ANY

PLANNED PARENTHOOD

ABORTION CLINIC, SHE IS

REQUIRED TO SIGN A CONSENT

FORM BEFORE SHE CAN HAVE

AN ABORTION.

FOR THE BODY PARTS OF HER

BABY TO ARE HARVESTED, SHE

MUST SIGN A SEPARATE FORM.

APPARENTLY, THAT IS NOT

ALWAYS THE CASE.

HARVESTING HAS BEEN GOING

ON FOR SOME TIME, BUT THE

VIDEOS PROVED IT IS MUCH

WORSE THAN ANYONE EVER

THOUGHT.

THE ABORTION INDUSTRY

HAS NOT REFORMED ITSELF,

IT HAS NOT REPENTED, IT

HAS NOT STOPPED DOING THIS

ACTIVITY.

NOW, OF COURSE, WITH

SOCIAL MEDIA IT IS A MUCH

MORE POWERFUL TOOL TODAY

THAN BACK IN THE LATE

1990s, WE'RE ABLE TO

MAKE EVEN MORE PEOPLE

AWARE OF THIS.

Reporter: PLANNED

PARENTHOOD DEFENDS ITSELF

BY SAYING THE VIDEOS ARE

HEAVILY EDITED.

AS A COLUMNIST WROTE IN

"U.S.A. TODAY", IT IS NOT

THE TONE THAT IS THE

PROBLEM, IT IS THE

CRUSHING OF BABY BODY

PARTS.

THIS IS DISTURBING TO

SO MANY OF OUR FELLOW

AMERICANS, WHO WOULD NOT

SAY THEY'RE PRO-LIFE, WHO

WOULD NOT SAY THEY FAVOR

ELIMINATING ABORTION.

BUT WHEN THEY SEE THIS,

THEY ARE DISTURBED.

WHY?

BECAUSE THE WORD

"ABORTION" HAS PRACTICALLY

LOST ALL OF ITS MEANING.

IT IS ONLY WHEN WE SEE

IT -- AND THIS IS THE

STRATEGY WE HAVE ADVOCATED

FOR DECADES -- IT IS ONLY

WHEN WE SEE IT THAT WE GET

TO THE POINT WHERE WE

REALIZE WHAT AN ABORTION

ACTUALLY IS.

Reporter: THERE IS NO

NICE WAY TO TALK ABOUT THE

TECHNIQUES USED TO PROCURE

THE BODY PARTS OF AN

ABORTED BEAFNLT THEABORTED BABY.

THEY ARE HORRIFYING.

THE MOMENT I TOOK THE

TWEEZERS, I PUT THEM IN

THE DISH, AND I REMEMBER

GRABBING A LEG, AND I SAID

THIS IS A LEG, AND THE

MOMENT I PICKED IT UP, I

COULD JUST FEEL, LIKE,

DEATH AND PAIN.

I NEVER FELT THAT BEFORE.

WHO SHOT UP THROUGH MY

BODY, AND I STARTED TO

BLACK OUT, BASICALLY.

Reporter: THIS IS A

TISSUE ORDER FORM, GIVING

INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO

SHIP THE LIVER AND THE

THYMUS OF A 16 TO

20-WEEK-OLD, THE KIDNEYS,

THE SKIN, THE PANCREAS,

EVEN THE BRAIN.

IF THESE AREN'T BABIES

WE'RE DEALING WITH, IF IT

IS JUST TISSUE, HOW ARE

THEIR ORGANS AND BODY

PARTS TO BE DONATED?

AND ANOTHER DISTURBING

THING: BABIES BEING BORN

ALIVE AND THEN KILLED IN

ORDER TO KEEP THEIR PARTS

INTACT.

GOZNEL IS SERVING TIME

FOR DOING THAT, KILLING

BABIES AFTER THEY CAME OUT

OF THE WOMB.

IN THE INTERVIEWS WE SEE

THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD

DOCTORS SAYING THIS IS

SOMETHING THEY CAN DO.

IF WE ALTER A PROCESS

AND WE'RE ABLE TO OBTAIN

INTACT FEE FETAL CADAVERS,

THEN WE CAN MAKE IT PART

OF THE BUDGET THAT ANY

DEFECTIONS ARE THIS, AND

SPLITTING THE SPECIMENS

INTO DIFFERENT SHIPMENTS

IS THIS.

IT IS ALL JUST A MATTER OF

LINE ITEMS.

Reporter: DR. ALVITA

KING WENT THROUGH SEVERAL

ABORTIONS IN HER EARLY

20s.

NOW IN HER 60s, SHE IS

STILL HAUNTED BY THEM, AND

SHUTTERS TO THINK ABOUT

WHAT SHE MAY HAVE SIGNED

WHILE IN NO PHYSICAL OR

MENTAL CONDITION TO DO SO.

I REMEMBER BEING IN THE

ABORTION FACILITY.

AND THEY'LL GIVE YOU

SEDATIVES AND ANTIBIOTICS,

SHOVE THAT AT YOU, AND

THEN A CLIPBOARD WITH

PAPERS.

AT THAT VERY STRESSFUL

TIME, MAKING DECISIONS

WITHOUT THE RIGHT TYPE OF

INFORMATION, THAT YOUNG

MOTHER, OR THE OLDER

MOTHER, IS NOT READY TO

SAY I WANT TO DONATE

TISSUE TO SCIENCE.

IN THAT PARTICULAR

SETTING, YOU JUST WANT TO

BE DONE AND BE FINISHED,

WITHOUT REALLY COMPREND

COMPREHENDING THE OVERALL

THING.

Reporter: THIS ISN'T

THE FIRST TIME PLANNED

PARENTHOOD HAS BEEN

EXPOSED.

AS VIDEO AFTER VIDEO IS

RELEASED, THE LOYAL

ADVOCATES ARE SILENT.

AND THE CRY TO DEFUND THE

NATION'S LARGEST ABORTION

PROVIDER GROWS LOUDER AND

LOUDER.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD HAS

PLAYED EVERY TRICK IN THE

BOOK.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD HAS RUN

OUT OF TRICKS NOW, THANKS

TO SOCIAL MEDIA.

THANKS TO WHAT IS

AVAILABLE IN THE

MAINSTREAM MEDIA, AND THEN

THOSE WHO WILL GO BEYOND

TO FIND TRUTH.

Reporter: THE TRUTH,

KING SAYS, IS THAT PLANNED

PARENTHOOD ISN'T IN THE

HEALING BUSINESS AND CAN

NO LONGER HIDE BEHIND THAT

CLAIM.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Andrew: THANK YOU,

CAITLIN.

JOINING US NOW BY SKYPE IS

ABBEY JOHNSON, A FORMER

PLANNED PARENTHOOD

DIRECTOR TURNED PRO-LIFE

ADVOCATE.

ABBEY, THANK YOU SO MUCH

FOR JOINING US.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME

ON.

Andrew: YOU HAVE A

FASCINATING STORY.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR HISTORY

WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

SURE.

I WORKED FOR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD FOR EIGHT

YEARS.

I WAS AN ABORTION CLINIC

DIRECTOR THERE.

AND BACK IN 2009, AFTER

WITNESSING A LIVE

ULTRASOUND-GUIDED ABORTION

PROCEDURE, WHERE I SAW A

13-WEEK-OLD BABY FIGHTING

AND STRUGGLING FOR HIS

LIFE DURING THAT

PROCEDURE, AND I KNEW THEN

THAT THERE WAS HUMANITY IN

THE WOMB, THAT THESE

CHILDREN HAD DIGNITY.

AND IF THAT WAS THE CASE,

THEN I HAD TO STAND UP AND

DEFEND THOSE UNBORN

CHILDREN.

Terry: ABBEY,

CAITLIN'S STORY RAISED THE

QUESTION -- AND I ASK YOU

BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN IN

CLINICS LIKE THIS -- ARE

BABIES BEING BORN ALIVE

AND THEN KILLED IN ORDER

TO KEEP THEIR BODIES

INTACT?

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT

THAT?

AND DID YOU SEE ANYTHING

ILLEGAL GOING ON?

WELL, WHEN I WORKED AT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD, I

WORKED FOR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD GULF COAST,

WHICH IS THE AFFILIATE

THAT IS FEATURED ON THE

FIFTH VIDEO.

I KNEW ALL OF THE PEOPLE

IN THE VIDEO VERY WELL.

WE WERE ALL VERY GOOD

FRIENDS WHEN I WORKED AT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

I NEVER WITNESSED ANYTHING

LIKE THAT, BABIES BEING

BORN ALIVE.

I THINK THAT WOULD BE A

LITTLE BIT OF A STRETCH TO

MAKE THAT ACCUSATION.

HOWEVER, THERE ARE

DEFINITELY OTHER THINGS

THAT ARE GOING ON THAT ARE

QUESTIONABLE.

WE MADE A SIGNIFICANT

PROFIT FROM EVERY BABY

THAT WE SENT TO OUR

RESEARCH LABORATORY, WHICH

IS ILLEGAL TO PROFIT OFF

OF THE SALE OF BODY PARTS.

I ALSO DID WITNESS SEVERAL

TIMES CHANGING A PROCEDURE

IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A

BETTER AND MORE INTACT

SPECIMEN, WHICH IS AGAINST

FEDERAL LAW.

SO, YES, THERE ARE

DEFINITELY QUESTIONABLE

THINGS GOING ON INSIDE OF

THE ABORTION INDUSTRY

REGARDING THIS.

Andrew: ABBEY, WE

KNOW YOUR Facebook PAGE

HAS BEEN INUNDATED WITH

WOMEN WHO HAVE HAD

ABORTIONS, AND SEEING

THESE VIDEOS HAVE STIRRED

UP A VERY PAINFUL PAST FOR

THEM.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THOSE

WOMEN?

YEAH.

I THINK THAT THESE VIDEOS

HAVE STIRRED UP A LOT OF

EMOTION THAT MAYBE PEOPLE

WEREN'T PREPARED FOR,

MAYBE THE PEOPLE WHO DID

THE VIDEOS WEREN'T

PREPARED FOR.

I WANT WOMEN TO KNOW THERE

IS HELP, THERE IS HEALING.

THERE IS NO SIN TOO GREAT

TO BRING TO THE FOOT OF

THE CROSS.

THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT

ORGANIZATIONS OUT THERE TO

HELP.

LOCAL PREGNANCY RESOURCE

CENTERS ALMOST ALWAYS HAVE

POST-ABORTIVE HEALING

RESOURCES.

AND PEOPLE CAN GO TO

hopeafterabortion.org TO

FIND OUT TO RECEIVE

HEALING.

Terry: I THINK DR.

KING SAID IT SO WELL,

BEFORE YOU CAME ON AIR

WITH US, A WOMAN IS IN NO

STATE TO MAKE RATIONAL

CHOICES WITHOUT HAVING ALL

OF THE FACTS BEFORE HER.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO A

GIRL WHO FINDS HERSELF IN

THAT SCENARIO?

I THINK THEY DO NEED TO

HAVE ALL OF THE FACTS.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO GET

ALL OF THE FACTS FROM

ABORTION FACILITIES

BECAUSE THERE IS AN INCENT

FOINCENTIVE FOR THEM TO SELL

YOU AN ABORTION, AND THAT

INCENTIVE IS A PROFIT

MANAGERS.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND

OTHER ABORTION FACILITIES

HAVE QUOTAS THEY MUST MEET

IN ORDER FOR THEM TO

MAINTAIN THEIR BUDGET AND

MAINTAIN THE EMPLOYEES

THEY HAVE.

SO THEY'RE TRYING TO SELL

A PRODUCT.

THEY'RE TRYING TO SELL AN

ABORTION TO A YOUNG

VULNERABLE WOMAN.

SO I ALWAYS ENCOURAGE

WOMEN TO GET THE FACTS, GO

TO YOUR LOCAL PREGNANCY

RESOURCE CENTER, GO TO A

PRO-LIFE PHYSICIAN, AND

FIND OUT WHAT ABORTION IS

REALLY LIKE BEFORE YOU

MAKE SUCH A FINAL

DECISION.

Andrew: ABBEY, SO

MANY PEOPLE ARE HORRIFIED

BY THE VIDEOS, AND THEIR

EYES ARE REALLY OPEN, AND

THEY ARE THINKING, HOW CAN

I MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN

THIS ENORMOUS FIGHT

AGAINST PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

MY WIFE AND I RECENTLY GOT

INVOLVED AS A RESULT IN

CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTER.

HOW CAN THE AVERAGE PERSON

GET INVOLVED IN THE

PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT?

THERE ARE SEVERAL

DIFFERENT WAYS.

PEOPLE CAN DEFINITELY GET

INVOLVED WITH YOUR LOCAL

PREGNANCY RESOURCE CENTER.

THEY'RE ALWAYS NEEDING

HELP.

THEY NEED VOLUNTEERS.

AND PEOPLE CAN GO OUT TO

THE ABORTION CLINICS AND

PEACEFULLY PRAY AND REACH

OUT IN LOVE TO THE WOMEN

AND THE CLINIC WORKERS WHO

ARE GOING INTO THOSE

CLINICS.

ABORTIONS ARE NOT

HAPPENING IN THE HALLS OF

CONGRESS.

THEY'RE NOT HAPPENING IN

THE WHITE HOUSE.

THEY'RE HAPPENING IN OUR

NEIGHBORHOODS ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY.

3,000 BABIES DIE EVERY

DAY.

THAT'S ONE PLACE THAT WE

CAN GO TO SHOW THAT

ABORTION IS MORALLY

OBJECTIONABLE, TO PICK THE

CONSCIENCE OF THESE

WORKERS AND PEOPLE GOING

INTO THE CLINIC.

AND ALSO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE

TO WORK AT THE STATE LEVEL

FOR DIFFERENT ABORTION

LAWS, MAKING SURE WE CAN

END ABORTIONS STATE BY

STATE.

Terry: YOU STARTED AN

ORGANIZATION CALLED "AND

THEN THERE WERE NONE."

TELL US ABOUT THAT.

"AND THEN THERE WERE

NONE," IS A NON-PROFIT

ORGANIZATION FOUNDED IN

2012 IN ORDER TO

PROACTIVELY REACH OUT TO

ABORTION CLINIC WORKERS,

THOSE WHO FEEL TRAPPED

INSIDE THE ABORTION

INDUSTRY, THEY NEED A WAY

OUT, BUT DON'T FEEL LIKE

THEY CAN LEAVE.

MAYBE THEY'RE SINGLE

PARENTS.

MAYBE THEY GOT INTO THE

BUSINESS THINKING THEY

WOULD BE HELPING WOMEN,

BUT NOW THEY HAVE SEEN THE

REALITY OF WHAT THE

INDUSTRY IS LIKE, JUST

LIKE I DID.

WE'VE BEEN OPERATING FOR

THREE YEARS.

IN THE PAST THREE YEARS,

WE HELPED 177 ABORTION

CLINIC WORKERS LEAVE THE

INDUSTRY, FIND HEALING,

COME TO CHRIST, AND JOIN

THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT.

AND THAT INCLUDES SIX

ABORTION DOCTORS WHO WERE

WORKING IN HOSPITALS, IN

PRIVATE CLINICS, ABORTING

BABIES, AND NOW ARE

WORKING TO DEFEND LIFE

INSTEAD OF DESTROY IT.

Terry: THAT'S GREAT,

ABBEY.

SO THERE IS MOVEMENT ON

THE OUTSIDE AS WELL AS THE

INSIDE THAT IS GOING ON.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING WITH US TODAY AND

FOR ALL OF THE WORK YOU'RE

DOING TO GET THIS PRO-LIFE

MESSAGE OUT.

WE APPRECIATE YOU.

THANK YOU.

Andrew: COMING UP

NEXT, SEE THE MOTHER OF

ALL BUSES, AND FIND OUT

WHY NINE OUT OF 10 WOMEN

WHO COME ABOARD DECIDE TO

KEEP THEIR BABIES.

THAT'S UP NEXT.

Terry: THEY'RE USING

A NEW BUSINESS MODEL IN

HUGE MEGA CENTERS.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD NOW

PERFORMS ALMOST A THIRD OF

ALL ABORTIONS IN THE

UNITED STATES.

70,000 MORE THAN JUST A

DECADE AGO.

BUT AS HEATHER SELLS SHOWS

US, PRO-LIFERS ARE

FIGHTING BACK WITH A

SIMPLE TECHNOLOGY THAT

COMES ON WHEELS.

Reporter: SIX DAYS A

WEEK, THIS BIG BLUE BUS

PARKS OUTSIDE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD'S HUGE ABORTION

CENTER IN HOUSTON.

IT IS NO DUTY A MAJOR

IRRITANT, IF NOT OUTRIGHT

THREAT TO THE

CORPORATION'S BOTTOM LINE.

THAT'S BECAUSE THE BUS

OFFERS FREE ULTRASOUND

IMAGES AND PREGNANCY TESTS

TO ANY WOMAN IN NEED.

> LIFE AND DEATH

DECISIONS ARE LITERALLY

MADE ON THIS BUS.

THOUSANDS OF WOMEN HAVE

STEPPED ABOARD IT SINCE IT

FIRST OPENED, AND THE

MAJORITY OF THEM HAVE

DECIDED TO KEEP THEIR

UNBORN CHILDREN.

I LOVE TO BE ABLE TO

TELL PEOPLE ABOUT THE BUS.

IT IS SO IMPORTANT.

IT IS SO EASY TO SAY,

HONEY, WE HAVE HELP RIGHT

HERE, RIGHT BEHIND YOU, IN

THE BUS.

Heather: FOR

THE BUS IS RIGHT THERE.

THEY CAN HAND THEM ONE

OF THESE CARDS AT ANY

GIVEN TIME.

Heather: THAT

HAPPENED TO MICHELLE

SCOTT, WHO THOUGHT THEY

HAD TO ABORT BECAUSE SHE

THOUGHT SHE COULDN'T

AFFORD A SECOND CHILD.

HER SON, ALLEN, LIVES AND

THRIVES TODAY THANKS TO

THE BUS.

AS SOON AS I SAW HIM ON

THE ULTRASOUND AND LET ME

HEAR THE HEART, I STARTED

CRYING.

THAT WAS IT.

Heather: WHAT HAPPENS

HERE IS SIMPLE, YET

STUNNING.

NINE OUT OF TEN WOMEN WHO

COME ABOARD KEEP THEIR

BABIES.

EVEN THOSE WHO ONLY

MOMENTS EARLIER PREPARED

TO END THEIR CHILD'S LIFE

JUST ACROSS THE STREET.

INITIALLY, THEY'RE VERY

VERY -- KIND OF NERVOUS,

CONFUSED, SHOCKED.

YOU CAN TELL ON THEIR FACE

THEY REALLY DON'T WANT TO

SEE IT BECAUSE THEY KNOW

IT MIGHT CHANGE THEIR

MIND.

THEY USUALLY START

CRYING AS WE BEGIN AND

COVER THEIR EYES.

AND AS WE'RE CONTINUING

WITH THE ULTRASOUND, THEY

START PEEKING OUT BETWEEN

THEIR FINGERS.

WE CALL IT A BABY AND WE

CALL THEM MOM.

AND WE SAY, LOOK, YOUR

BABY IS SUCKING HIS THUMB.

AND THE NEXT THING WE KNOW

IS THEY'RE CRYING AND

SMILING AT THE SAME TIME.

Heather: THE POWER AT

THIS MOMENT IS HELPING A

PREGNANT WOMAN UNDERSTAND

HER NEW IDENTITY AND THE

REALITY OF HER CHILD

CANNOT BE UNDERESTIMATED.

THEY WILL SPEND AS MUCH

TIME AS NEEDED WITH THE

NEW MOMS.

SHE STAYS ON THAT TABLE

UNTIL SHE DECIDES SHE

WANTS THE BABY.

Reporter: MORE THAN

7,000 WOMEN HAVE VISITED

THE BUS SINCE IT OPENED

FOUR YEARS AGO.

NATIONWIDE, MORE THAN A

THOUSAND CRISIS PREGNANCY

CENTERS, INCLUDING A FEW

MOBILE UNITS, ALSO OFFER

FREE ULTRASOUNDS.

ONE OF THE LARGEST

ORGANIZATIONS, "CARE NET,"

ESTIMATES IT HAS HELPED TO

SAVE ALMOST 400,000

BABIES.

AT THE SAME TIME, PLANNED

PARENTHOOD IS OPENING MORE

MEGA CENTERS, VIRTUAL

ABORTION MILLS OF 10,000

SCARE FEET OR MORE.

UNFORTUNATELY, THEIR

BUSINESS MODEL APPEARS TO

HAVE PAID OFF, RESULTING

IN 70,000 MORE ABORTIONS A

YEAR COMPARED TO 10 YEARS

AGO.

IT REALLY WEIGHS HEAVY

ON US, WHEN WE SEE A MOM

WHO COMES AND SHE SEES HER

BABY, AND WE SHOW HER THE

MODELS AND WE SHOW HER THE

HEARTBEAT, PLAY IT FOR HER

BACK, AND SHE STILL GOES

OVER THERE.

Reporter: FOR

MICHELLE SCOTT, LITTLE

ALLEN IS A SWEET DAILY

REMINDER OF HER DECISION.

SHE SAYS BOTH HER BOYS

HAVE GIVEN HER MORE

DETERMINATION TO LIVE HER

LIFE WELL, AND HAVE

INSPIRED HER TO WRITE A

POEM ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE.

NOW I'M LAID OUT ON THE

HOSPITAL BED, FORGETTING

MY FAITH, THINKING THAT IN

KILLING THERE IS PEACE.

PLEASE.

AND THEN GOD KICKS IN.

AND THEN, WELL, A COUPLE

OF MONTHS LATER, I HAVE

YOU.

AND YOU'RE CRYING.

AND I'M SINGING.

*

HUSH LITTLE BABY, DON'T

YOU CRY *

P.

> THE SOUND OF YOURVOICE, ALLEN, IS

PRICELESS.

Heather: REPORTING IN

HOUSTON, HEATHER SELLS,

CBN NEWS.

Terry: PERHAPS YOU,

OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW HAS AN

UNPLANNED OR UNWANTED

PREGNANCY, AND JUST LIKE

IN THE STORY YOU JUST SAW,

THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE

WHO WANT TO HELP.

JOINING US NOW IS ONE OF

THOSE PEOPLE, SANDRA COPE,

AND, SANDRA, WE WELCOME

YOU TO THE PROGRAM.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: PEOPLE HEAR

THE NAMES, PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, THE CRISIS

PREGNANCY CENTER -- WHAT

HAPPENS?

GIVE US A RUN-THROUGH OF

WHEN A WOMAN COMES TO YOUR

CENTER, WHAT HAPPENS.

WOMEN COME TO OUR

CENTER EVERY DAY WHO ARE

REALLY LOOKING FOR MORE

THAN WHAT THEY REALIZE.

THEY'RE LOOKING FOR

EDUCATION.

THEY'RE LOOKING TO FIND

OUT IF THEY TRULY HAVE

WHAT WE CALL A

CONFIRMATION OF PREGNANCY,

MEANING THERE IS REALLY A

BABY INSIDE OF THEM WITH A

HEARTBEAT.

AND THOSE THINGS REALLY

COME TRUE AS WE BEGIN TO

BUILD A RELATIONSHIP WITH

THEM AND OFFER THEM

SERVICES AT OUR CLINICS.

Terry: IS THERE A

TYPICAL WOMAN?

THERE REALLY IS NOT.

WE SEE WOMEN, GOSH, AS

YOUNG AS MAYBE 13, ALL THE

WAY INTO THEIR 40s.

WE DO -- THE LARGEST

NUMBER WE SEE ARE MAYBE

THE 18 TO 24-YEAR-OLD

RANGE.

BUT THERE ARE ALL TYPES OF

WOMEN, IN ALL

SOCIOECONOMIC STATUSES,

ALL DIFFERENT WALKS OF

LIFE.

SINGLE, MARRIED, YOU NAME

IT.

Terry: TALK ABOUT THE

POWER OF THE ULTRASOUND.

I MEAN, THERE HAS TO BE --

I CANNOT BELIEVE THERE IS

NOT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS

INSIDE OF A HEART AND MIND

OF A WOMAN WHEN SHE SEES A

BABY INSIDE OF HER.

Reporter: WHEN A

WOMAN SEES AND IS ABLE TO

CONNECT WITH HER CHILD, IT

IS SACRED.

THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT.

AND TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE

THAT TO A WOMAN AT A LOCAL

CENTER, WHERE THERE IS NO

OBLIGATION, NO EXCHANGE OF

MONEY --

Terry: IT IS A

SERVICE.

IT IS REALLY A SERVICE.

IT IS.

AND IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO

BE ABLE TO BE ONE OF THOSE

WHO OFFERS THOSE

ULTRASOUNDS, BUT, TRULY,

IT CAN BE JUST A MATERNAL

INSTINCTS THAT A WOMAN IS

NOT EVEN REALIZING WHEN

SHE SEES THAT ULTRASOUND

ON THE SCREEN AND

RECOGNIZES THAT IS HER

BABY AND THAT IS HER

BABY'S HEART.

Terry: IS IT A

GAME-CHANGER?

IT IS A GAME-CHANGER

FOR MOST WOMEN.

I DO BELIEVE IT IS A

PROCESS.

WHEN A WOMAN FINDS OUT SHE

IS IN AN UNPLANNED

PREGNANCY, THERE ARE SO

MANY LEVELS OF THIS THAT

SHE HAS TO GO THROUGH.

Terry: YEAH.

AND IT IS SO IMPORTANT

TO WALK THROUGH THAT WITH

HER, TO SPEAK TRUTH, TO

LET HER KNOW HOW MUCH

EDUCATION WILL EMPOWER HER

TO MAKE A FULLY INFORMED

DECISION.

Terry: AND TO LET HER

KNOW, I IMAGINE, THE

SUPPORT THAT IS AVAILABLE

TO HER.

I THINK THAT IS THE

THOUGHT IN MOST WOMEN WHO

ARE TAKING ABACK BY THIS,

SHOCKED BY IT, MAYBE EVEN

FEARFUL OF IT, TO KNOW

THERE ARE PEOPLE TO HELP,

THAT THERE ARE OPTIONS.

ADOPTION BEING ONE OF

THEM.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY

TIMES I HEAR A WOMAN SAY,

I COULDN'T GIVE UP MY BABY

FOR ADOPTION, BUT THEY

COULD ABORT THE BABY.

THAT IS BEYOND

COMPREHENSIVE TO ME

BECAUSE ONE IS SO MUCH

MORE FINAL.

SO IS THE GIFT OF ADOPTION

A CHOICE?

WE SEE WOMEN WHO MAKE

THAT ABSOLUTE BRAVE

CHOICE, THAT SELFLESS

CHOICE, TO MAKE AN

ADOPTION PLAN.

WE DON'T SEE THAT AS THE

NORM, AND IT IS

HEARTBREAKING.

BECAUSE WE DO KNOW THAT IS

A GIFT OF LIFE.

AND WE DO NEED TO UNCOVER

SOME OF THESE LAYERS AND

SOME OF THE LIES THAT

WOMEN BELIEVE, THAT

ABORTION IS A BETTER

OPTION THAN ADOPTION.

Terry: AND EVEN THE

LIE THAT YOU CAN DO

SOMETHING LIKE ABORTION

AND WALK AWAY AND NOT HAVE

IT STILL ATTACHED TO YOUR

HEART, TO YOUR CONSCIENCE.

GIVE US A SUCCESS STORY.

WE HAVE A LOT OF

SUCCESS STORIES.

ONE OF THEM, JUST

RECENTLY -- I WAS WITH A

WOMAN WHO WAS THINKING

ABOUT ABORTION, WHO WAS

VERY CONFLICTED.

AND THAT'S SO MANY OF OUR

PATIENTS WHO ARE

CONFLICTED.

IT GOES AGAINST EVERYTHING

IN THEM.

WE KNOW NO WOMAN WANTS TO

DO THAT.

AND SHE HAD OTHER

CHILDREN, WHICH MADE IT

ALL THE MORE REAL.

IN HER MIND, SHE COULD NOT

CONTINUE THIS PREGNANCY.

THERE WERE DIFFICULTIES

SHE WAS FACING THAT SHE

COULD NOT THINK ABOUT

BRINGING THIS CHILD INTO

THE WORLD.

AND WHAT HAPPENED WAS I

GOT TO SPEND TIME WITH HER

ON THE PHONE.

SHE HAD BEEN AT OUR

CENTER.

SHE HAD HAD AN ULTRASOUND.

SHE RECEIVED COUNSELLING.

AND SHE HAD GOTTEN ALL OF

THE LITERATURE TO LOOK

OVER TO MAKE HER FULLY

INFORMED DECISION.

WHAT HAPPENED WAS SHE TOOK

THE WEEKEND.

SHE TOOK THE WEEKEND TO

THINK ABOUT IT.

AND I FOUND OUT THAT SHE

WAS A CHRISTIAN.

AND I ASKED HER, HAVE YOU

ASKED GOD?

HAVE YOU PRAYED?

AND I TOLD HER ABOUT LIFE

AND TOLD HER ABOUT HOW

VALUABLE AND SPECIAL SHE

WAS, AND THAT JUST MAYBE

THE BABY INSIDE OF HER WAS

EVEN MORE SPECIAL.

AND SHE REALLY BEGAN TO

QUESTION HER DECISION

ABOUT CHOOSING ABORTION.

AND I WILL SAY TO YOU, SHE

HAS DECIDED SHE IS GOING

TO CHOOSE LIFE.

AND SHE IS GOING TO CARRY

THIS BABY.

AND ON FAITH.

BECAUSE WE DO KNOW THESE

ARE BRAVE WOMEN.

Terry: ABSOLUTELY.

AND WE RESPECT THEM

FULLY.

AND ULTIMATELY, THIS IS

THEIR DECISION, BUT WE

KNOW THEY HAVE TO

UNDERSTAND THAT ABORTION

IS WHAT -- IT GOES AGAINST

EVERYTHING THAT A MOTHER

WOULD WANT TO DO.

Terry: AND BEING

FULLY INFORMED HELPS TO

MAKE THE BEST DECISION IN

THE END FOR MOST WOMEN.

SO THE CRISIS PREGNANCY

CENTER, THE KIND CENTER

HERE IN OUR AREA -- TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF THESE PLACES.

IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO

FINDS THEMSELVES IN THIS

SITUATION, KNOW IT IS A

SAFE PLACE TO SEND THEM,

WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO GET

FULL INFORMATION AND WISE

COUNSEL AND GREAT SUPPORT

AND ENCOURAGEMENT.

SANDRA, THANK YOU SO MUCH

FOR BEING WITH US TODAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: TO FIND A

CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTER

NEAR YOU, GO TO

care-net.org AND THERE

IS A NATIONAL HELPLINE:

WE RECEIVED SOME PRAYER

QUESTS OREQUESTS ON Facebook.

LET'S GO TO JESSICA.

DIA DIANNA WRITES, "I THINK

IT IS A SIN NOT TO TAKE

CARE OF YOURSELF.

I'M GUILTY OF THAT IN A

BIG WAY.

AND I DON'T FEEL LIKE A

CHILD OF GOD.

I FEEL BROKEN AND DEFEATED

BY CIRCUMSTANCES.

I STRUGGLE TO OVERCOME

DEPRESSION."

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO PRAY

FOR YOU, DIANNA, AND IF

YOU ARE WATCHING AND YOU

HAVE HAD AN ABORTION OR

YOU ARE CONSIDERING AN

ABORTION, WE WANT YOU TO

KNOW WE DON'T WANT TO

CONDEMN YOU.

WE WANT YOU TO FEEL OUR

LOVE AND HOPE.

LET'S GO TO PRAYER REALLY

QUICK.

HEAVENLY FATHER, WE LIFT

UP THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING

WHO ARE STRUGGLING, EITHER

CHOICES OF THE PAST OR THE

CHOICES THEY'RE GOING TO

MAKE.

JUST AS ABBEY JOHNSON

SAID, THERE IS NO SIN TOO

GREAT WE CANNOT TAKE TO

THE FOOT OF THE CROSS.

LORD, WE ASK THAT YOU BE

WITH DIANNANNA AND ALL THOSE

WHO ARE CONSIDERING OR

HAVE HAD AN ABORTION.

AMEN.

Andrew: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH THESE WORDS FROM

PSALM: "FOR YOU CREATED MY

INNERMOST BEING.

YOU KNIT ME TOGETHER IN MY

MOTHER'S WOMB."

FOR JESSICA AND TERRY, I'M

ANDREW KNOX, AND WE'LL SEE

YOU NEXT TIME ON "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

GOD BLESS YOU.
