The Voice of John: A Nurse Speaks Out on a Baby Born Alive After an Abortion
lan ^ | Kristi Burton Brown

Posted on 09/28/2012 7:47:44 PM PDT by Morgana

On November 4 of this year, a new pro-life documentary – The Voice of John – will be released. Produced by River Song Productions, this film will discuss the reality of babies born alive after abortions as well as evidence of atrocities that occur with far too much regularity in the abortion industry. In The Voice of John, the humanity of the unborn will be made real in yet one more way for the world to see, as “one small voice will speak for millions.”

“John” is not a make-believe person or a fantasy. He is a real baby, who survived an abortion and was then left to die by medical professionals. The movie’s site details the true story behind The Voice of John:

In 1977, a young nurse was working in an obstetrics unit of a major veteran’s hospital, stumbled upon a LIVE baby, placed in a ‘dirty utility room,’ left to die! What she did not realize is that Roe vs. Wade had just been passed by the U.S. Supreme Court and this atrocity was indeed legal! The staff in the facility reprimanded her as she tried to explain that a baby was alive and placed on a cold metal table and left to die! Against their instruction, she held that baby in her arms and listened to his soft whimpering cries for survival. She held the child, baptized him, and said, ‘I name you John, and I will tell the world what I saw here today. I will be your voice!’

Thirty-five years later, Maryann Lawhon will hold true to her promise as River Song Productions presents…’The Voice of John.’

In production since early 2011, The Voice of John will feature former Governor Mike Huckabee, former Planned Parenthood director and current president of And Then There Were None Abby Johnson, Father Frank Pavone, scientist Ken Ham, multiple members of the U.S. Congress, medical experts, abortion survivors, women who have had abortions, and former abortion doctors like Carol Everett. The Voice of John will take a look at abortion through a prism of countless angles, opinions, and stories that will bring the real truth to light.

The documentary’s producer shares one of the main purposes behind this film: to convince the church as a whole to act on the issue of abortion:

This film is designed to be an forensic educational production that will not only expose the truth about this senseless killings but show to goodness and forgiveness that we all have through our Lord Jesus Christ. For we learn in Luke 6:37 we see: ‘Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven’. (NIV) Yet statistics show Women identifying themselves as Protestants obtain 37.4% of all abortions in the U.S.; Catholic women account for 31.3%, Jewish women account for 1.3%, and women with no religious affiliation obtain 23.7% of all abortions. 18% of all abortions are performed on women who identify themselves as ‘Born-again/Evangelical’. (says Dorothy Guyton of dirt2diamonds.blogspot.com)

A new study by The Center For Reason (www.CenterForReason.com) finds that Christians have just as many abortions as their non-Christian counterparts. The study concludes that in the year 2000, Christians were responsible for 570,000 abortions. Catholics were found to be the worst offenders, with abortion rates higher than the national average. (www.centerforreason.com) We have a lot of work to do but it’s not all done on the streets of this great nation. It needs to be done right inside our own church walls. The church can no longer be silent, and then come to ‘life’ every January and every other November, and say ‘We are Pro-Life’ Of the 70 million Christians in the US about 3.5 m or about 5% are involved in the Pro-life movement in some way. Until we realize that abortion is a bigger symptom of the real problem, we cannot see an end in sight.

Five percent of Christians is clearly not enough. More Christians must stand against abortion and stand up for the innocent. Without question, abortion must be spoken about from our pulpits and in our pews. We must speak with truth and compassion, with love and courage. We must determine that we will not stop until every life is saved and every silenced voice – like John’s – is heard. This is the call that has been put on Christians, and we must answer it.

Yet this is not a film for just Christians. The Voice of John is a wake-up call to the nation as a whole. Despite your religious affiliation – or lack of it – and despite your involvement on either side of the abortion issue, and despite your current beliefs, this documentary is a must-see. We must individually wake up to the truth and choose to stand up for innocent lives. We must choose to forgive, and not condemn. Christians must choose to live like Christians, not just claim to be Christians.

This November, watch The Voice of John, weep with the reality of millions of innocent lives lost, and then get up out of your chair and do something to end the slaughter.

GOD IS PRO-LIFE!!!

Pray For The End Of Abortion, Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide, Infanticide, And For The Defeat Of The Culture Of Death!!!




The Catechism of the Catholic Church
On Respect for Human Life
(From the Holy See Website)


For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

Psalm 139:13-16 (KJV)

PRAYER TO END ABORTION

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

PRAYER TO SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL

Sancte Michael Archangele,
defende nos in proelio;
contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur:
tuque, Princeps militiae Caelestis,
satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,
qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo,
divina virtute in infernum detrude.
Amen.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,
who wander about the world seeking the destruction of souls.
Amen.

Pope Leo XIII









Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

>> More Christians must stand against abortion

Killing nascent, human life should not only be a concern for the Faithful. Life should concern anyone that claims to be a thinking, caring individual.

Oh my. I was a NICU nurse for 10 years. I took care of two failed abortions. We were told they were prostaglandin abortions, but am not sure because I was not part of that scene. We received them in the NICU when they refused to die. The two that I remember eventually died. The neonatologist told us that the prostaglandin abortions damaged their bodies. I am only a nurse, so I don’t claim to know anything more than what I saw and how dreadfully sick these babies were.

Lady doc might know.

Either way the babies died with you giving them a fighting chance. That counts for everything.

We don’t need to pray for it..we need to be prepared because war is coming and God will not allow this slaughter to continue much longer.

Yes we do! In the words of Tennyson:

"More things are wrought by prayer
Than this world dreams of. Wherefore, let thy voice
Rise like a fountain for me night and day.
For what are men better than sheep or goats
That nourish a blind life within the brain,
If, knowing God, they lift not hands of prayer
Both for themselves and those who call them friend?"


War is already upon us - we must use every moral means available to us!

ok..well I do pray everyday but not with words as God already knows our needs. But true prayer will make us strong and able to effect change. If more people were strong Christians, we would never allow for the killing of unborn...ever.

Prayer takes many forms - I'm a singer - my songs go up as prayers to the Lord. To Him all glory belongs.

"‘Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven’."

I have seen (heard) this verse often quoted to give Democrats license to do whatever they want to do.

For example, The ("Reverend") Jesse Jackson quoted it to excuse Clinton from his despicable behavior getting blowjobs in the White House from a young intern.

How about your opinions - does this verse mean that we cannot condemn evil behavior?

Does anyone else remember instances of the verse being used to excuse a liberal from something condemnable?

Personally, I think it is Satan's deception to quote God's word in this way. Anyone else?

Prostaglandin type abortions, done in the later months of pregnancy, involve injecting the mother with prostaglandin hormones that cause strong labor and forces a premature birth. It causes very strong contractions, which is a contributing factor to the damage to the baby in addition to his/her prematurely developed organs that make survival outside the womb slim. Some babies born from this procedure DO survive and have been adopted. The newer procedure called "partial-birth abortion" or D&X (dilation and extraction) was devised to eliminate this "complication" of late term abortions. It involves the abortionist reaching into the uterus, drawing out the body of the baby, leaving only the head inside, puncturing the back of the head and suctioning out the brains - thus killing the baby who is then completely delivered and disposed of - nothing short of infanticide. Our current President refused to sign legislation that outlawed this horrific butchery.

During the second trimester the baby's body grows larger and the bones become harder. The procedure used in first trimester abortions - suction aspiration - cannot be used after a certain point because of the size and rigidity of the baby's body. Other, more gruesome tactics were devised. There is a "saline inducement", where a strong saline solution is injected into the uterus, the baby is killed and hormones are administered to cause labor and the dead, burned body of the baby is delivered. Some babies have actually survived this procedure but not many.

Another is the D&C type, dilation and curettage, where the abortionist uses a sharp curette with other instruments to grab the baby's body, twisting, cutting and dismembering it in utero and removing the pieces through the partially opened cervix. The abortionist must reassemble the body parts to ensure all the pieces have been removed. Any remaining tissue will cause infection and is a known complication of abortion. It is one of the main causes of infertility as is the accidental puncturing of the uterus with the sharp instruments, which can result in serious injury and even death.

Some people will refuse to learn about what happens in abortion, content to bury their collective heads in the sand and hide behind the slogan that, "Though I am personally opposed to abortion, I will not stand in the way of a woman doing with her body what she feels is best.". I am convinced that, just as it took the horrific pictures of the Nazi death camps to awake America and the world up to the atrocities being done there, so must we come face to face with the gruesome things that are happening in the hush-hush world of "reproductive health". Abortion usually ALWAYS results in the death of a living human child and sometimes - still - the death of the mother as well. The abortion lobby fights tooth and nail against any advertisement of the reality of abortion - the mutilated babies, the dead or damaged mothers, the emotionally damaged mothers and fathers - because it might "distress" people. Well, darn it, we NEED to be MORE distressed. We NEED to be outraged and horrified enough that we start standing up against the continuing promotion of the slaughter of the innocents of our day. The six million killed by the Nazis ARE horrible and should NEVER be allowed to happen again. But there have been TEN TIMES that many killed by abortion in our country alone! When will it be enough? When will we say STOP? The blood of the innocents cry up to God for vengeance and God WILL rain down justice. What will it take for us to wake up? Why are Christians so oblivious to the truth of this awful practice? If we don't make a stand, who will?

I agree! It has been used incorrectly for centuries to do just exactly that. If people actually read the context instead of pieces of verses, they would realize that Jesus was not saying we could not judge between right and wrong or we could not say what another person is doing is wrong else why give us commandments? There were other times where Jesus said we SHOULD judge - “by their fruits you shall know them” is one. No, we should be sure that when we judge we are not guilty of the same sin - hypocrites. What we should avoid is judging others motives, judging what we think we know is in their hearts - where ONLY God can see. Funny how many people use the Bible when they think it helps their point but then discard it if it goes against whatever they want to do.
