Will she get to walk a mile in her shoes?
On Tuesday, April 16, Planned Parenthood will plaster the web with the Not In Her Shoes campaign for their Virtual Lobby Day. We need your help – yes, you! – to turn it around on them.
Planned Parenthood is encouraging women to tweet and blog and otherwise post online photos of their shoes, with pithy captions about how don’t nobody know what it’s like to walk in my shoes, m’kay?
See, these people are still trying to convince us that it’s okay for them to get paid to take the lives of innocent humans, because they do it for really, really good reasons.
Not money. No way. Has nothing to do with money. Nope.
In response, Texans for Life Coalition plans to out-lobby the lobbyists with Virtual Pro-Life Lobby Day, a Not In Her Shoes campaign of their very own that will make Planned Parenthood’s message look even more dumb and shallow than it already does.
The best part: you can be involved!
A pro-choice woman has contacted Texans for Life due to serious concern about the care she received when undergoing an abortion procedure in Dallas.
She is not the only one concerned; her doctor has been sued by three patients.
One of them has a severely brain damaged infant. One of them no longer has a uterus. One of them went to the ER after her abortion with half of her 22-week fetus still inside her and a lacerated uterus and colon.
Despite having had his hospital privileges revoked due to a heinous record, this doctor is still committing abortions in Dallas.
That’s why Texans for Life and other pro-life groups are supporting legislation which will prohibit doctors who have no hospital admitting privileges within thirty miles from performing abortions.
On January 19, 2013, what started in Dallas will begin to end in Dallas, as we mark the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision with the 2013 Dallas March for Life.
This year’s theme is Exodus 20:13. Aptly, 2013 is more than just the 40th anniversary of Roe. It’s also the Exodus verse that tells us: Thou shalt not kill.
For forty years, our country has wandered in the darkness of the shadow cast by the Roe decision, lost in a wilderness of immorality in which a culture of death has flourished and overrun our nation.
This year, we are committed to making the Dallas March for Life a passionate, unforgettable coming together of Texans committed to ending the scourge of abortion.

I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to the Dallas March for Life that is happening this coming Saturday, January 19th. Each time I attend the March, I am amazed at the growing crowds. People from all walks of life, and all ethnic groups, in all kinds of weather. Young and old are marching, some carrying signs or balloons, and the Knights of Columbus in full regalia. It is especially nice to see so many pro-life teens. Many parents bring their children. There was a woman on crutches one year, who walked the entire route to the Earl Cabell Federal building and back. She had to be experiencing pain. It made me think of Christ, who carried the cross to Calvary. He had to be in terrible pain, but he did it anyway. Christ died for all of us, and that includes the 55 million precious babies lost, that we march for.
2013 is the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade. We are expecting over 10,000 people in Dallas to March for Life this year. The theme is Exodus 20:13, Thou Shalt Not Kill. I feel sure that 10,000 people marching to the courthouse are going to look like an exodus coming out of the desert of 40 years of abortion. Surely this will be the year that the major television and radio stations will be there to report the March for Life, alongside the faithful evangelical and catholic stations that are with us every year!
Many people who march are Christians who are constantly in the front lines, fighting against abortion. We are encouraged by the Sonogram law, the number of clinics that are closing and the actions Texans for Life is taking to expose the degenerate docs and deplorable conditions of many of the abortion mills. These are huge strides brought about by small steps taken, toward ending abortion. Even still, upon occasion, it feels like it is us against the world, and the March for Life is a fabulous way for all of us to see that we are not standing alone in this fight, not by a long shot! These marchers represent pro-lifers in Texas. It is a beautiful sight to see multiple denominations, Crisis Pregnancy Centers, and all other pro-life groups and individuals, come together in peace and prayer, to show our solidarity for LIFE.
Get there early to get a parking spot or seat! Bring a car or bus load of friends and family, a picnic lunch, water bottle, comfy shoes, and be prepared for Texas weather! We hope to see you at one of two events, starting at 10:00 AM!

Corrected Edition: Note that the blog post has been corrected because erroneous information was provided to the author suggesting an association between Cerine and Omniplan, a thriving architectural firm. We have been contacted by Omniplan and are assured they have no connection to this project or Cerine Management. We regret the error.
Some Ft. Worth residents believe this is what happens when Planned Parenthood can’t get their way in Dallas. Others think the location was chosen for other reasons. No matter the strategy, one thing is certain: Planned Parenthood is building a late-term abortion clinic in Ft. Worth — next to a nationally recognized adoption agency.
It began with a simple transaction.
Cerine Management, LLC, formed in 2009, bought a parcel of land in southwest Ft. Worth. The company’s records were vague, with Gray “Tuck” Henry the sole principal listed. Elizabeth Solender of Solender Hall Commercial Real Estate, a broker representing Cerine, purchased land from a Ft. Worth man named Dan McDonald, who was told it would be used for an ambulatory surgical center. Solender, an influential League of Women Voters type known among North Texas power politics players and non-profit feminists, specializes in transferring real estate from companies to non-profits.
Rumors began to spread around the Ft. Worth area when a former Planned Parenthood executive converted to Christianity in Denison and told her pastor PP was planning something horrible in Ft. Worth. Pastors, like the rest of us, talk. Her pastor told another pastor, Dr. Michael Dean of Travis Avenue Baptist Church, in the fall of 2011.
Not yet knowing what PP had up their sleeve, or where their big idea might land, Dean contacted The Edna Gladney Center, and together they formed Life Advisory Team to explore the sinister possibilit
On March 17, thirty-nine women — one to represent each year since the Roe v. Wade decision — will walk from the Planned Parenthood abortion mega-clinic in Houston to the federal building in Dallas where the Roe case was originally filed, arriving on Good Friday, April 6. These women will walk 250 miles in 21 days, averaging about 12 miles a day.
According to their website:
They will leave everything behind to embark on this symbolic journey depicting America’s tragic path of abortion, taking a radical stand for life as they share their personal stories of how abortion has impacted each of their lives.
During this prayer journey, a video documentary team with an Internet channel will stream the walk live, daily featuring a young woman’s account of how abortion has affected her life. Some of these women are post-abortive, some are survivors of abortion; others are those who have been stirred by this national calamity and have come to walk for life because of their passion for the issue. Together, these women represent the stand for life in the midst of a culture of death.
The 39 women walk for various reasons. Erdoo says, “I am walking to bring awareness to the injustice of Black genocide at the hands of the abortion industry.” Summer says, “I am walking because, when I was 16 years old I had a traumatic abortion experience and I remember feeling the pain of my baby being sucked from my womb…” Melissa says, “I am walking on behalf of the unborn. I was scheduled to die but in one moment everything changed.”
Just a friendly reminder that the movie I had the pleasure of seeing recently, Doonby, opened yesterday in Chattanooga and today in Dallas. If you’re in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, grab some friends and go see it. How it does in Dallas will determine how it will do across the country, and this is a story that needs to be told to an entire nation. It is by turns warm and thrilling, and its jaw-dropping ending alone is worth the ticket price.
Most of all, I firmly believe that this film, without preaching or shoving anything down anyone’s throat, can save lives.
Even if you’re nowhere near Dallas, please share this on Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest and Tumblr and MySpace (if you keep it old-skool).
Special Doonby Trivia: This movie was screened — and praised — by the Vatican, and yet it is not a religious movie. Curious? Go see it!
