Give a Gift

David & Goliath

By Christina Bennett, Board Chairperson

 David was completely overlooked but went to gather food for his family as his dad said. However, Goliath was a known champion and the army of Israel was in fear for their lives.

David was so gutsy and realized who he was and said, “For who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?” 1 Samuel 17:26. But he was discounted again and asked to tend his sheep.

David recounted his past victories to Saul and said let me fight. “Your servant killed both the lion and the bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God!” 1 Samuel 17:36.

I think it’s worth noting that, not only was Goliath a giant, about 12 feet tall, but he even had a person in front of him as a shield guard to protect himself. David attempted to use Saul’s armor, but he wasn’t used to it.

Now That Roe is Gone...

... what do we do?

The answer is very simple - we keep on fighting for life in the womb, as well as for those women who are facing difficult choices because they are pregnant - and don't want to be. Roe does not make abortion illegal, it simply returns the issue back to the states. The Justices were correct in their evaluation of the Constitution and their determination that abortion is not a constitutionally held right. With the overturning of Roe, 9 states have implemented bans on abortion from conception, and a number of states have trigger laws yet to go into effect that will restrict abortions at varying stages of pregnancy.  To see the complete list visit the Guttmacher Institute.

We know, however, that in NYS abortion remains protected, and legislation has been reinforced to not only protect abortion on demand, but to also ensure it is available to people across the nation. NY is committed to providing $30 million to support abortion providers, with $10 million designated to security and protection of those clinics. It has also passed legislation to study "Pregnancy Help Centers" (See the video below at minute mark 19:44 to hear what the governor thinks of centers like Alight). The bill authorizes the Commissioner of Health to conduct a study and issue a report examining the unmet health and resource needs facing pregnant women in New York and the impact of limited service pregnancy centers. In other words, are pregnancy centers meeting needs with respect to New York's Reproductive Health Act?

- Governor Hochul reinforces abortion rights in NY and takes aim at Pregnancy Help Organizations by signing Pregnancy Help Center Report legislation. Watch the video..

The Alight Center is still here to support and empower women, helping them know the truth about their pregnancy, the truth about their options, and the resources available to help them make a very difficult decision. No woman needs to feel alone, coerced, or so hopeless that she ends her child's life.

A Story About Victory

Victory!

Christina Bennett, Board Chairperson

God honors His promises and saves His people.

It begins with an attack on the people of God. King Jehoshaphat’s first response to the news that the Israelites would be attacked by the Moabites and Ammonites is to “resolve to inquire of the Lord, and he proclaimed a fast for all Judah.” Opposition typically requires (or compels) us to draw near to the Lord. 

He then inquires of the Lord… “Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power to face this vast army that is attacking us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” It was clear that there would be no victory without God’s help. 

~ See 2 Chronicles 20:15-24 ~

God defeated their enemies supernaturally as they praised the Lord. Never underestimate the power of your praise. It consistently brings confusion to the enemy’s camp, just as it did for Hezekiah, Gideon, and Joshua for the walls of Jericho. As we continue in our efforts, it’s important to realize that the battle for the unborn and their mothers is a spiritual one and that it is God who goes before us.

Pro-Life 101:

"Pro-lifers only care about the fetus, not about women or their babies after they're born." This charge by pro-choicers is making the rounds on social media lately, in reaction to several states' (no, not New York...) strengthening of legal protections for the unborn. Here's how you can confidently refute this vacuous claim: 1.It's a false charge b...
