OPERATION CONVERSION UPDATE: This week we have been praying for Dr. Shelley Sella. Check out what happened outside of her clinic today. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lifenews.com%2Fstate5398.html&h=57e08. Do you think this is coincidence?? I do not. This is only more reason for us to cover her (and her facility) in prayer this week.
Please pray for Dr. Shelley Sella. Dr. Sella performed late term abortions in Kansas with Dr. George Tiller until his death in May 2009. She now practices in New Mexico and continues to provide late term abortions up to 30 weeks gestation. Please commit with me to pray for Dr. Sella and cover her in prayer every day for 7 days. This is not a call to contact her or her facility.

I remember when I was about to turn 16, my parents and I started looking for a car. At the time, the Pontiac Sunfire was a really popular car…especially for kids. I was totally opposed to it. Why? Because it had daytime running lights. I thought that was totally uncool. Isn’t that so silly? Oh man, the mind of a 15 year old. I didn’t know then how easy life was back then. Running lights? Really? That’s what I was worried about? My parents of course liked the idea because it was for safety. I think at the time, daytime running lights were a new concept. I just didn’t get it…why would I want lights that I couldn’t turn off? That didn’t make sense. Who cares about safety, I thought. It’s all about looking cool. Well, I didn’t end up getting that Sunfire. My first car was a Mustang…I drove that car for 9 years. I am not a sentimental person, but when I think about that car…gosh, I LOVED that car. I think about this memory and it makes me laugh. I was being such a brat…meanwhile, my parents were thinking about how to keep me safe. That’s what it’s about, you know; being a parent.
After I had my daughter, I’ll never forget the overwhelming feeling I had come over me. It is something that I really can’t explain. It was like I had been bee-bopping around living for me (for 26 years), and then all of a sudden, this person entered my life. A person who I knew I would throw myself in front of a bus for. That is a crazy type of love. So self-sacraficing, unconditional. I mean, you love your spouse…but it is not the same as the love you have for your child. They are part of you. Part of you runs through them. It was a feeling that was really hard for me to deal with in the beginning. Gosh, there were no baby books to prepare me for that feeling. I wanted to protect her from everything. Could I install running lights on her forehead? That way people would always see her coming. People won’t bump into her, I will always be able to see her, she will never get lost. But that is just not the way life works. That is not what it is like to be a parent. Our kids do get hurt…and sometimes they make the wrong choices.
I think about the choices I have made in my life. I still can’t imagine how conflicted my parents must have felt while I worked my way up the ladder of Planned Parenthood. My parents always taught me to be independent, to have a strong work ethic, to be a leader. And, that’s what I was doing. I was pouring my life into this organization that they despised. But, they were always proud of me. Always proud of my accomplishments. When I received the “employee of the year” award, I called them first…and they were proud. When I found out I would be sitting with Hillary Clinton at the PPFA national conference, I called them first…and they were proud. When I got the promotion to Health Center Director, I called them first…and they were proud. They were always proud…proud of me…not necessarily proud of my work. Where were those running lights? Where were those signs telling me that I was headed down a road that wasn’t safe, that wouldn’t be good for me? I saw them, but ignored them. The lights didn’t help. The horns didn’t help. Only the voice of Christ could penetrate my heart. He was the only one that could bust through the static and sound clear. But where would I be now without that strong foundation given to me by my parents? I wouldn’t have known to even open my heart and my ears to hear the voice of Christ without that foundation. Our kids deserve that. They deserve more. They deserve our all. They deserve more than just that feeling of protection…we have to act. We have to be proactive when it comes to our kids. Unfortunately, our kids don’t come with built in running lights…we have to be the light for them.
Pro-lifers are very excited about the collapse of Planned Parenthood Golden Gate. They should be. This is great news. I could go on and on about how the audit process works and what they look for when it comes. I could tell you all of the inside scoop about accredidation and all of the line by line items they look for when they visit an affiliate. But here is the bottom line…it is rare that PPFA will pull affiliation away. I mean, you have to REALLY mess up. And, they had been really running a muck. For many people, this was not a surprise. I’m sure that for the people making the big bucks, the upper management, this was not a huge shock. After all, they were part of the problem…the “HR” problem. They lead to a lot of these issues that caused their disaffiliation. However, I know for many in the organization, there is probably a huge sense of betrayal. How could they mess this up so badly? How could they leave me without a job? How could they leave these women without a place to turn for healthcare? I hope that for the employees that were left behind, they actually see the truth of this organization. I hope that they finally see that PP is not really about their “clients” or their “care.” They are about monetary gain…at the expense of these precious women. I hope they see that PP is not really interested in THEM! You felt like a family while you were there…but where is that family now? I know. I remember. That sense of betrayal that I felt is still close under my skin. Some days I still feel it. But now when I feel it, I am not angry. I am no longer bitter. I am thankful. I am so glad that I have moved on to something better…ultimately to the truth.
If you are reading this and you are a former worker for PPGG, you can have that, too. You may feel betrayed. You may feel like no one else knows what you are going through right now. That is not true. I have been there. Many others have been there. I know what you have seen inside those walls. I know what has been said…maybe what you have said that now rings in your ears and haunts you. I know about the dreams and nightmares that you may have now that you no longer work there anymore. You see, you are not alone. Not by a long shot. There are so many people that would like to help you…I am one of those people. Some people may be excited about the clinic closures…but I am excited about you…about your future…a future without Planned Parenthood. It can be so much better. If you need to talk or reach out to someone, please click on my “contact” link. I would love to chat with you. It can be totally anonymous. I am not looking for “insider” information or any sort of personal gain. I am just here to tell you that sometimes it helps to talk to someone who has walked in the same shoes. If you need it, I am here.
I am trying to figure out which pictures I would like to include in my upcoming book. I want to make sure and include great pics…things that will show the reader really who I am. Who I was growing up, who I was as a young college kid and who I am now. Going through all of these pics and deciding which ones to include is really difficult. How do you tell your life and who you are in a handful of pictures? I guess we can’t. I know after sifting through all of mine, I definitely can’t. But, I know I will include this one.
Please pray for Drs. Peter and Beth Kropf. Dr. Kropf and his wife Beth work as a team to provide abortions up to 18 weeks gestation. They currently practice in Texas. Please commit with me to pray for Drs. Peter and Beth Kropf every day for 7 days. This is not a call to contact them or their facility.

We all know the power of prayer. Prayer is what moved me out of the abortion industry. Christ works miracles. We may not see them everyday, but they are happening. God placed something on my heart and I have felt called to act on it. Praying for people by name is an important tool during prayer. A (now) friend of mine, Elizabeth, prayed for me by name for months and months. What if thousands and thousands of people were praying for one particular person, by name, at one time? Wouldn’t that be powerful?? Well, that is what God has placed on my heart. My husband (I want to give him credit ) named it OPERATION CONVERSION!!!!
Here’s the idea. Once a week, on Saturday, I will post a well-known, prominent abortionist on my public facebook page and here on my website. I have decided on Saturday so that people can take this name to their churches and put them on their prayer list, give the name to their paster/priest, pray in their Sunday school class…whatever. We will commit to pray for this one abortionist EVERY DAY for 7 days. This is not a call to contact the abortionist or their facility. This is simply a call to prayer. We CAN pray these men and women out of the abortion industry. Christ CAN get them out of there!!!!! We have to believe that!!!
Will you commit to this with me? A new name every Saturday. Every day. It can be a short prayer…or a long prayer. Just pray for this person by name every day for 7 days. We are making an impact on these people whether we see it or not. Blessings to all of you!!!!
