Every loving and proud mom wants to share the joy of a newborn with the world. Mariah is no different. She loves her precious baby boy and wants to place a birth announcement inThe Daily Democrat newspaper in Decatur, Indiana. She was told she would need to include the father’s name on the announcement. After explaining to Sarah that she had been raped and that she placed charges against the guy Sarah’s response was “I don’t care”. Monica Kelsey, prolife speaker and also conceived in rape has been helping Mariah get through this difficult time of moving past society’s stigma of giving birth to a rape conceived baby. Monica in her attempt to share what had happened at the paper actually had her own FaceBook Speaker page shut down for “bullying” The Decatur Daily Democrat. It is now back up. It would seem that a paper calling itself “Democrat” would espouse to their mantra against the “War on Women” and jump at this opportunity to be compassionate toward a female victim. But after repeated attempts by the public to get an apology and get the paper to do what is right many people are simply being hung up on when they ask for Sarah. One woman in particular Tayhise Martinez Williams also a mother of a rape conceived child called The Decatur Daily Democrat and asked to place a birth announcement. When the issue of the father’s name came up Tahise asked, “What if I don’t know the father’s name?” The woman said, “It may be a different story.” But when Tayhise mentioned rape the woman hung up on her.

Putting a rapist’s name on an announcement is beyond cruel. In some states the rapist actually would have rights to the child if named as the father. In 31 states rapists havecustody rights to a child conceived in rape. Shauna Prewitt is working diligently to get laws changed as she knows firsthand about rapists’ rights! As a mother of a rape conceived daughter she was forced to drop charges on a rapist so that he would relinquish his rights. Right now a sixteen year old fights a custody battle with her rapist – a twenty something year old Army man. Missouri didn’t protect minors by law and he was acquitted. (See video)

Society is absolutely against the mother and her rape conceived child. Remember the attacks on Senator Todd Akin and Senator Richard Mourdock because they wanted to protect the babies and mothers of rape conception? They even received threats on their life and their families’ lives. Society truly wants to eliminate babies conceived in rape instead of focusing on the criminal rapists. Mariah like most mothers who conceived in rape realized that that rapist is not responsible for the gift of her son’s life. That happened supernaturally. Over and over the same scenario happens. One fourteen year old girl in Indiana had her parents’ home spray painted because she chose life for her rape conceived child. She gave birth to her son and together with her parents is raising him. Her classmates have turned on her and are actually terrorizing her. Even her doctors before she gave birth, slandered her saying that she was just “trying to save her reputation and is lying about being raped!”

What is wrong with a society that claims to be pro woman, progressive and “tolerant”? As more girls and women stand boldly loving their babies conceived in rape perhaps this re-victimization will end. This is not unlike blacks walking into a “white” establishment in the 60’s only to be told they didn’t “know their place.” Seems mothers of rape conceived babies are getting the same message and prejudice. It would seem that to be pregnant by rape and want the baby is impossible to many. Society believes no woman would want to “give birth to a rapist’s baby.” But what they fail to understand is that baby belongs to the woman. One woman said to me, “A man stole my body but society wants to steal my baby.” The first abortion law passed in this country in 1966 in Mississippi to allow for the killing of any child conceived in rape and still in the womb. Every hospital that I know of presents the “emergency” contraceptive or morning after pill to any woman who was raped. Many times they don’t even ask if the female wants to take it because it’s assumed no one wants that ‘kind’ of baby. I am making a public appeal to The Decatur Daily Democrat. As one conceived in rape and not wishing to give any credit to the men who raped my own mother in MO, I ask The Daily Democrat to stop the war on women and respect Mariah. A rapist does not deserve to be called “father.”

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
