Social Services funding 2018

Good news! Planned Parenthood has not applied for a handout from city government this year.

Unfortunately, the "all options" organization is requesting the city give them your tax dollars. "All options" maintains a fund to help pay for abortions, so we at Christian Citizens for Life oppose funding them for any reason.

See their application below:

Children are a blessing from the Lord!

This was written by CCFL board member Scott Tibbs.

The pro-life movement needs a positive message, and we need to embrace God's promises and sing praises of His blessings. If we want to end abortion, this is the only way to do it.

We have often focused on the evil of abortion, and how it murders a baby made in the image of God. We have educated the public about the brutality of abortion. Even many politicians who support "abortion rights" try to use weasel words by saying they want abortion to be "safe, legal and rare." (Somehow, all efforts to make abortion rare are rejected by the same people who say they want it to be rare.)

But even as we seek to protect these little ones, we are not challenging the world's assumptions about children. It is these assumptions that fuel the abortion mills that blight our cities. The world tells us that children are a curse. The world tells us that children are a burden, both on our finances and on our time. The world tells us that we will be happier without children. Because we are naturally a very selfish people, we embrace these lies and we repeat these lies to others.

Do you want to fight abortion? Here is one thing you can do: Get married and have babies. Talk about how your children are a blessing from God and how thankful you are for His blessings. If people wonder how you manage, tell them that no matter the challenges, the rewards are far greater than any difficulties children bring. You created and built a completely new life, loved by God and made in His image. That is why I say that you have not really lived until you are sleep-deprived from a newborn that will not sleep unless he is being held - because I have lived that and I know the joy it brings.

Unless we convince people that children are a blessing, and reject the lie that children are a burden or a curse, we will never end the wholesale slaughter of unborn babies.

Help needed for 40 Days for Life

Please read this important update from Monica Siefker:

Thank you for your prayers, fasting, and support for 40 Days for Life. Today marks Day 10 of this 40-day campaign.

There have already been 2 mothers that we know of who have chosen life for their babies since this campaign began, praise God! Your prayerful presence and sacrifices do make a difference.

As usual, there are a lot of open hours over the next few days. If you can help with one of the hours listed below, please sign up on-line at www.40daysforlife.com/bloomington.

If you've never done this before, don't worry. We'd be happy to have someone come with you to the Bloomington Planned Parenthood to show you were you can stand and what you can do. It's always good to see fresh faces out there!

Thank you so much for your consideration on helping with the hours listed below. God bless you abundantly.

“Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you will receive them, and they shall be granted you." (Mark 11:24)
