(09/02/2015) "On August 27, Planned Parenthood released what they claimed was a 'forensic analysis' report on CMP’s published investigative footage. In reality, the report is a pseudoscientific production by Fusion GPS, a political opposition-research company that has no forensic certifications. While the report, which contains multiple errors, set out to delegitimize CMP’s video evidence, it only provides evidence of the opposite: the report admits that 'This analysis did not reveal widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation' and that it 'shows no evidence of audio manipulation.'"

(08/26/2015) "Do most Americans really support federal funds going to Planned Parenthood? That’s what the results of a recent poll seem to suggest at first glance, but a deeper analysis of a new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows that Americans’ support for Planned Parenthood dropped significantly following the release of videos that unmasked the organization’s organ-harvesting scheme. .... It also shows why the virtual mainstream media blackout on the entire ordeal is one of the worst abuses of journalistic integrity. Seventy percent of Americans don’t know about the videos or about Planned Parenthood’s organs-for-cash scheme."

(08/19/2015) Beginning Saturday, August 22, pro-lifers are urged to participate in eight days of fasting and prayer to end the evils of abortion and Planned Parenthood. The campaign of prayer and fasting, headed by Priests for Life,  is co-sponsored by the National Pro-Life Religious Council (of which Lifewatch is a member) and several other organizations. The prayer to the left is one of several suggested prayers to be lifted up. Lifewatch invites all pro-life United Methodists to join others in prayer and fasting to end abortion!

(08/12/2015) "Groups such as Planned Parenthood say that there are little, if any emotional scars for the women involved… the baby is just tissue. This is very deceptive—the emotional scars can last a lifetime. And it’s not just women who feel the pain, the men often carry tremendous guilt as well."

(08/05/2015) "In a tiny room with a ‘Biohazard’ sign on the door, I met God. …. There I sat face to face with about twenty people. Twenty people who you couldn't see walk through the door, twenty people who didn't get to plead their case in the counseling room, twenty people whose little hearts were barely able to beat, twenty people who didn't get a choice, twenty people who would be tossed in a freezer at the end of the day to wait and be carted off to a burn site as medical waste. ‘Medical Waste’ or ‘Product of Conception’ were the only names these people would ever be given inside our clinic. I left work that day with such a heavy sorrow in my heart. I have never felt those types of intense emotions before. I prayed to God that night to show me a way out."

(07/29/2015) "The fetal period begins on day 57 after fertilization and ends at birth. The tissues and organs that were formed during the embryonic period continue to grow during the fetal period, but the changes aren't as pronounced. Ultrasonic measurements are used to measure embryonic growth. .... Physicians can now measure how the fetus is growing and what its state of health is with a very high degree of accuracy. Through advanced surgical procedures, doctors can operate on the fetus without leaving a scar."

(07/22/2015) Within the past few weeks, two undercover videos of Planned Parenthood representatives selling body parts of aborted babies have been released. Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services, PPFA, and Mary Gatter, Medical Director of Planned Parenthood in Pasadena, CA, described in graphic detail how to procure specific fetal organs and how much Planned Parenthood would charge buyers for the purchase of those organs. (The full footage of both videos - 2 hours, 42 minutes and  1 hour, 13.5 minutes, respectively - is included at the end of the sourced articles.)

Father, you have created us in body and soul
To honor you and our neighbor
And to receive honor and respect in return.

Our bodies are sacred.
They reflect you, our Creator.
And we hold sacred
The bodies of all the children in the womb.

Lord, we are saddened
That these children are being killed,
And saddened again
That their body parts are being harvested and sold.

Have mercy on our nation.
Have mercy on those who are perpetrating these evils.
As more and more people become aware of this,
Turn their hearts towards you,
The Fountain of life and love.

Give consolation to all who have had abortions,
And give wisdom to our public officials
That they may respond adequately
To the corruption found in the abortion industry.

Grant that we,
The People of Life and the People of Mercy,
May recommit ourselves to building a nation
Without abortion and without the many evils that flow from us.

May we choose life;
May we choose mercy;
May we choose your Kingdom!
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Our Mission:

Out of obedience to Jesus Christ, the Taskforce of United Methodists on Abortion and Sexuality (TUMAS) will work to create in church and society esteem for human life at its most vulnerable, specifically for the unborn child and for the Woman who contemplates abortion.  Therefore, TUMAS's first goal is to win the hearts and minds of United Methodists, to engage in abortion-prevention through theological, pastoral and social emphases that support human life."
