In keeping with their radical crusade to defend abortion up until and after birth, Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and their surrogates have officially sued Governor Kemp and the state of Georgia to overturn our Heartbeat Bill.

We are not surprised, we are ready, and we will fight.

Georgia’s LIFE Act is different from every other Heartbeat Bill in the nation, because we recognize that the child in the womb is a person and should be protected by the 14th Amendment. This concept terrifies the abortion industry, because it would end abortion everywhere for any reason. That’s why they will stop at nothing to defeat Georgia’s law.

This lawsuit is an attack on human rights and an egregious attempt to deny personhood to a class of humans.

But, despite their barbaric targeting and killing people based on their race, gender, and age, the abortion industry will be on the wrong side of history and they will lose.

Governor Kemp and Georgia Life Alliance are committed to fighting for the most pro-life law in the nation, but we need your help.

We need you to pray for Governor Kemp, our legal team, and support our efforts to defend the Heartbeat Bill.

Forward this email to your pro-life friends and family to start a prayer chain and chip in $5, $25, $50, or $100 before our quarterly deadline to help us lead the fight.

Don’t let Planned Parenthood wage war against our children without opposition! As the only Georgia-based right to life group supporting Governor Kemp and the Heartbeat Bill, we need your support now more than ever.

Together for life,

My name is Brett Lempe, and I am pro-life. I am also an artist based in Centennial, Colorado. Recently I had a venue owner cancel an art show that we had been planning for months because of my beliefs around abortion. Not because the artwork that I was planning on displaying or the show itself was explicitly pro-life, but because I am a pro-life person. I am not as disappointed because I lost the show, I’m heartbroken because of the reason that it was lost. I have been asked to write an article explaining the situation and share some thoughts on it.

About 6 months ago, I saw a post my friend and venue owner had created on Facebook calling for artists to apply to be a part of month-long solo art shows that this venue would be hosting for local Denver artists. Having had a previous personal connection with the owner, and also desiring to get to display my work whenever I can, I immediately jumped on the opportunity.

We had an appointment and agreed on a the details of the show. He encouraged me to be as creative as possible, and I then began to work on the show almost immediately. A month and a half before the show was set to be on display, I receive the following text:

“Hey there, I wanted to start by saying I love you and I know you have been working hard on cranking out the paintings. I also wanted to say I respect your spiritual [path]

However we won’t be affiliated at all with a pro life message it is fundamentally against our beliefs and the goals of our community. That in mind we have to cancel the pending art show and opening.”

I was shocked, disappointed, yet proud all at the same time. I’m assuming he saw a few pro-life posts on my social media that then motivated him to cancel.

It is a shame that he never stopped to ask why I believe the way I do about the sanctity of life, or even try to have a dialogue. But, for the record, here is why I am pro-life:

I am pro-life because human life begins at conception. Biology is clear that, at conception, a unique organism comes into existence. Since this new life possesses human DNA and is the offspring of human parents, it can only legitimately be described as human.

Taking this life away, because the life is inconvenient to the parent(s), is wrong.

I’m not “forcing people to be pregnant” because I’m not forcing people to have sex.

And no, I’m not out on some crazy power trip attempting to control women. Any woman in my life would agree to that. I’m a gentleman. That’s why I believe we should protect vulnerable women and innocent children targeted by the abortion industry.

And no, it. is. not. your. body. Unless you want to claim that your body has two sets of DNA, two heads, two hearts, and two possibly different sets of reproductive organs. Which, you can go ahead and do that, but I still think taking human life away by force is wrong. Also, just because this life can only currently live inside your womb, doesn’t mean you should have the right to kill them.

Taking a human life away is, by definition, murder.

So because this is what I believe, the art show I had been planning for months has been cancelled.

If we take a brief glance at human history, we will witness many figures who were persecuted for standing for truth and love. Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, and Jesus Christ, to name a few. I’m not saying that the show getting cancelled was comparable to the discrimination that these figures faced. But my point is that these are great examples of how, when we stand for goodness and for life, we will suffer, we will be hurt in various ways, and we will be discriminated against. But that’s okay.

I am much more willing to suffer from persecution for standing for truth and love than to suffer from living a life based on lies for the sake of convenience. Having had this experience, I know now more that ever that, by standing to support life, I do not stand alone. I am extremely grateful for the support that I have gotten in response to this event, and now an explicitly pro-life art show based in Denver is already in the works!

After finishing meetings in DC recently, I stopped by NASA HQ before leaving town. I’m a bit of a space nerd and I couldn’t pass up the chance to walk inside. The gift shop was full of swag containing various depictions of Martians and references to extraterrestrial life. The nerd community is obsessed with aliens.

That’s every space nerd’s dream: to find alien life. Just look at War of the Worlds, Star Trek, Star Wars, Andromeda, Stargate, and a hundred other sci-fi icons; popular culture has been fixated on discovering alien life for more than a hundred years. And what’s better? NASA says they’ll find life outside of Earth within the next 10 years.

NASA’s search for alien life isn’t what you would expect, however. When you and I hear “alien life,” we think of little green men. NASA, on the other hand, simply means some trace of organic material outside of Earth. It doesn’t even have to be very big or complex – a simple microbe would do the trick.

This got me thinking.

If, during a science experiment on a deep space asteroid, NASA found a speck of organic goo, it would change the world. Scientists would praise the incredible discovery and begin deriving new theories for the origins of human life on Earth. My grandchildren would read in school about the greatest human accomplishment to date: discovering alien life in that glorious speck of goo. 

And yet, despite science’s uncontested and irrefutable evidence that the human lifespan begins at the moment of conception, we hear a growing cry from the abortion industry that the child in the womb is merely a clump of cells. Just this year, we heard pro-abortion activists line up in testimony against Georgia’s Heartbeat Bill to argue that the rhythmic sound of a beating heart, complex genetic code, and intricate physiological structure of a child in the womb are somehow antonymous with life. 

It makes little sense that the most technologically advanced species on the planet, which heralds itself for its vast knowledge and wisdom, can look to the stars for mere traces of alien life while it denies the existence of human life right under our noses.

But the abortion industry and the #fakenews media have worked hard together to ensure the science of life in the womb is obscured, misrepresented, and suppressed from the general public – just look at NPR’s recent memo in response to our extensive coverage of the Georgia Heartbeat Bill demanding their surrogates never say “heartbeat,” “unborn,” or “baby.” 

That’s because if more people knew that from the very moment of conception, the tiny human embryo contains every strand of DNA to determine her hair color, eye color, and even her fingerprints, they might view that clump of cells more accurately. And if Planned Parenthood spent less time suppressing the knowledge that the baby’s heart is already beating by 6 weeks, that the brain and all major organs are developed by 10 weeks, and that she is already fully formed by 12 weeks, they would have to defend the horrific fact that nearly 90% of abortions take place by this time.

And by doing such, abortion advocates have created a discrepancy in our culture’s value system when it comes to human life in the womb. When a fetus is wanted, it’s a baby. When it’s inconvenient, it’s a clump of cells. When we detect a strand of extraterrestrial goo, it’s alien life. When we detect a beating heart, it’s a product of conception. 

Thankfully, the wave of pro-life legislation sweeping our nation this year indicates that the abortion industry’s misinformation and deliberate suppression of science is finally failing. A majority of Americans are putting two and two together, science is winning, and we are once again viewing the precious child in the womb is indeed a life worth protecting. 

For the first time, we are realizing that if we were to conquer every corner of the solar system yet deny the personhood to our most vulnerable members of our species, we’ll merely become spacefaring barbarians.

It is increasingly clear that Americans now recognize the most monumental life that could be discovered is not the search for speck, but the precious child sheltered in her mother’s womb awaiting her turn to look to the stars with wonder.
