Do abortion victim pictures and video change hearts and minds?

Sam Riley, leader of our Road Trip for Life, comes to us live from the campus of Eastern Michigan University. Sam shares with Mark the effectiveness of using abortion victim pictures and video on college campuses.

Sam shares also that with all the coverage regarding late-term abortion and infanticide, university students are more interested than ever before to discuss abortion.

JumboTron causes paradigm shift:

Created Equal is pioneering the use of cutting-edge video technology to represent the victims of abortion to large audiences across America. In 2012, we debuted our JumboTron TV screen to reach the hundreds of thousands in Washington, DC during the National March for Life. Most recently, we returned to the March for Life with two JumboTron screens, where at least one pro-abortion protester changed her mind.

At pro-life marches, politicians, activists, and post-abortive parents are given a platform to share their perspectives on the evil and violence of abortion. Not until JumboTron TV have the primary victims of abortion been represented in such a profound way.

Ohio Heartbeat Bill Passes, Signed by Governor | The Mark Harrington Show | 4-11-19

Ohio Heartbeat Bill Passes, Signed by Governor | The Mark Harrington Show | 4-11-19

Ohio Heartbeat Bill Passes, Signed by Governor | The Mark Harrington Show | 4-11-19

Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill has been signed by Gov. Mike DeWine.  With more restrictions added by the Ohio Senate last week, the bill (SB 23) was sent to the Ohio House on Wednesday, where it passed 56-39 also clearing the Ohio Senate 18-13.

The law bans abortion at the detection of a fetal heartbeat.

SB 23 grants no exceptions in cases of rape or incest, and recently added a statute that would encourage the use of a transvaginal ultrasound, which can often detect a fetal heartbeat earlier than an external exam.

SB 23, the third Heartbeat Bill to be proposed in as many years, is part of a larger strategy to get the abortion debate back in front of the Supreme Court and overturn Roe v. Wade, says Created Equal President Mark Harrington.

“With the changing composition of the Supreme Court, there could soon be enough justices to overturn Roe v. Wade which would return the abortion issue back where it belongs to the state legislatures,” Harrington said in a press release. “This is another reason to act now. We are so proud that our Ohio legislators did the right thing and finally passed the Heartbeat Bill!”

The bill won’t immediately become law; a 90-day grace period allows time for it to face legal challenges.

Additionally, during the Heartbeat bill hearings and floor speeches pro-abortion legislators presented an amendment to allow the bill to protect all preborn children except African-American babies! 

This last-minute amendment sought to change the bill to exempt African-American women—thus allowing only black babies to be killed while babies of all other ethnicities would enjoy legal protection.

Watch and listen to Mark every week as he discusses the issues and provides practical actions every American can take to speak up against injustice.

Plan to Watch unPlanned | The Mark Harrington Show | 4-1-19

Why would someone who has been on the receiving end of some of Abby Johnson’s harshest criticisms be willing to see her movie – unPlanned? Why would a person who has been maligned for using abortion images and for exposing abortionists endorse her movie? 

Here’s why: Because I am able to set aside her attacks against me for the greater goal of seeing minds changed and to support pro-life films that don’t sugar coat the awful truth of abortion.

With that said, here is my review:

Pros:

  • UnPlanned shows the gruesome and painful reality of abortion.
  • UnPlanned shows Abby being converted by witnessing an actual abortion.
  • UnPlanned exposes Planned Parenthood (PP) as an evil organization.
  • UnPlanned demonstrates that some of PP workers are not necessarily hard-core abortion advocates.
  • UnPlanned sheds light into Abby’s own painful abortion experiences including a chemical abortion.
  • UnPlanned explains how young people are deceived into believing in the mission of PP.
  • UnPlanned depicts that a prayerful and winsome witness at abortion facilities is most effective.
  • UnPlanned shows the love and long suffering of her parents and others who never stopped praying that she would leave the abortion industry.

Con:

  • UnPlanned feeds into the stereotype of those who use scripture and victim images at abortion centers as mean-spirited judgmental.

Watch and listen to Mark every week as he discusses the issues and provides practical actions every American can take to speak up against injustice.

The “Intensity Gap” w/ Christen Pollo | The Mark Harrington Show | 3-28-19

Pro-life young people out number pro-abortion youth not just numerically but also in vigor.

According to a NARAL survey conducted recently, 51% of voters younger than age 30 who oppose abortion rights consider it a "very important" voting issue, compared with 26% of their peers who support abortion rights.

The “intensity gap,” as it has been referred to by former NARAL president Nancy Keenan, demonstrates that the pro-life movement is winning the long-term battle of recruiting new activists to the fold.

Mark interviews Christen Pollo, Executive Director of Protect Life Michigan (PLMI), as she discusses how her organization is winning the next generation.

Christen shares how her organization was represented at the White House recently supporting president Trump’s executive order on free speech. Also, PLMI is partnering with Created Equal on campuses throughout Michigan.

Mark gives an update on the progress of the Ohio Heartbeat Bill.

Watch and listen to Mark discuss these issues and provide practical action every American can take who loves life and liberty.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke has repeatedly refused to support a law that would stop infanticide and require doctors to care for babies who are born alive after failed abortions.

The issue of Democrat support for post-birth abortions continues to shock Americans as the US Senate has been attempting to pass the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

Watch O’Rourke here: https://bit.ly/2OiPPoQ  

Not only does O’Rourke have a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record like the other Democrat presidential candidates, he also sponsored a radical pro-abortion bill that would have legalized abortions for basically any reason up to birth.

The so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act” was introduced in Congress in 2017, with dozens of Democrat sponsors, including likely presidential candidates Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kristen Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders.

Nicknamed the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act” by pro-life groups, the bill would have invalidated nearly all state and federal abortion regulations, including waiting periods, informed consent requirements, bans on late-term abortions and sex-selection abortions and more.

Additionally, Mark testified before the Ohio Health Committee on the Heartbeat Bill. The measure is expected to get a vote next week and be signed soon by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine.

On Tuesday, proponent testimony was heard in the Ohio House Health Committee for SB 23, the Heartbeat Bill. Janet Porter of Faith2Action and Mark Harrington of Created Equal testified. Mark’s testimony begins at 3:10:04 and ends at 3:19:01.

Watch it here: https://bit.ly/2ujE2xr

Here is an excerpt from Mark's testimony:

"It is the responsibility of every representative of this general assembly to reject the court in this case, defy Roe v. Wade, and reclaim their authority over the writing of laws and pass bills which protect preborn people from murder, just like born people are protected from murder."

Please be in prayer for passage of this bill. The Ohio Health Committee will receive opponent testimony next Tuesday and a committee vote could be forthcoming very soon.

Watch and listen to Mark discuss these issues and provide practical action every American can take who loves life and liberty.

It’s a Bad Week to be Pro-Abortion | The Mark Harrington Show | 3-15-19

It’s a Bad Week to be Pro-Abortion | The Mark Harrington Show | 3-15-19

This week, Ohio continued to be at the forefront of the abortion debate. In the past few days, the Heartbeat Bill passed the Ohio Senate, Ohio Senate Democrats refused to condemn infanticide, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Planned Parenthood can be defunded, and abortionist Martin Haskell’s late term abortion facility faces closure.

Listen as Mark deals with each of these important developments one at a time.

First: On Wednesday, the Heartbeat Bill passed the Ohio Senate by a vote of 19-13 and now the bill heads over to the House of Representatives.

The difference between now and the past is Ohio has a governor who has pledged to sign the bill.

Second: Ohio Democrats and abortion groups refused to condemn infanticide.

The issue of Democrat support for post-birth abortions continues to have legs.  This week, an Ohio Senate heard a resolution supporting the effort by the US Senate to pass the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.  In committee, none of the Democrats voted for the resolution. In fact, freshman Senator Tina Maharath (D) was roundly rebuked by Chairman Dave Burke (R) for daring to say the committee had more important issues to spend their time on. He said, “it is absurd that a child would be left on a table after birth.”

NARAL’s deputy director Jaime Miracle was chided by Sen. Peggy Lehner for changing the subject of the infanticide debate from the babies who survive an abortion attempt to violence towards abortion providers.

Interestingly, foreseeing political peril ahead, when the measure was brought to full Senate, Democrats voted for the resolution.

Third: abortionist Martin Haskell’s late-term abortion facility got a hearing on revocation of his license.

Abortionist Martin Haskell has nine lives. That’s more than I can say for the thousands of babies he has butchered over the decades.  Thankfully, Haskell’s killing machine is running out of legal options. We anticipate his killing center will finally be shuttered. Created Equal has played a part in this outcome.

Watch and listen to Mark discuss these issues and provide practical direction for every American who loves life.

Making Your Case Persuasively | The Mark Harrington Show | 3-8-19

After spending a few days at the Ohio State House recently listening to abortion advocates defend preborn child-killing, I was nauseated. But what may have been worse was witnessing the inability of pro-life legislators to refute their sloppy arguments.

But the real question is, if Christians don’t know how to make a compelling case for preborn how can we expect our legislators to?

This is what you will learn to do on this episode of The Mark Harrington Show.

  • Simplify the abortion issue for those who think it’s complex.
  • Defend the pro-life view scientifically and philosophically.
  • Refute common objections to the pro-life view.

The Left’s Rush to Infanticide | The Mark Harrington Show | 2-29-19

With the recent vote of 44 Senate Democrats (including 6 presidential candidates) refusing to protect born children from murder, the nation has once again been confronted by the overt barbarism of abortion advocates. The debate is no longer about a woman’s right to choose but rather the right of a woman to have a dead baby as a result even if the baby has been born.

This is a now a debate over infanticide.

To defend themselves, Democrats say babies are never born alive as a result of a failed abortion. Living examples like Melissa Ohden and Gianna Jessen beg to differ.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), nationwide, between 2003 and 2014 at least 143 babies died after being born alive during botched abortions – and the CDC states this could be an underestimation. In 2018, 16 infants in Florida alone were born alive after surviving abortion attempts.

As a result of the brazen support by abortion advocates of up-until-birth and post-birth abortions, Americans are changing their view on all abortions.

Last month, Marist released its annual abortion survey, which found that just 38% of Americans considered themselves “pro-life” versus 55% “pro-choice,” with an additional 7% unsure. Forty eight percent of Americans said they would either completely ban abortions or limit them to cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother’s life; the rest of the findings indicated overwhelming majority support for restricting abortion much more than it is today.

A new Marist poll shows 80% of Americans want to limit abortion to the first three months of pregnancy but Democrats can’t even find consensus to limit abortion after a child is born. Also, Marist now finds the “pro-life” and “pro-choice” labels tied at 47% with 6% unsure, and a combined 58% of Americans who would ban all or most abortions. Only 21% of Americans would allow elective abortions past the first trimester, down from 24%.

When pro-lifers take this issue to the people, Democrats’ obsession with killing babies will kill their chances at the ballot box and help to ensure the re-election of President Donald Trump.

Watch and listen to Mark discuss these issues and provide practical direction for every American who loves life.

Ending Abortion: Prudence v. All or Nothing | The Mark Harrington Show | 2-21-19

Ending Abortion: Prudence v. All or Nothing | The Mark Harrington Show | 2-21-19

February 21, 2019

As the Ohio Heartbeat Bill receives another round of hearings in the Ohio legislature, some discussion of political tactics has re-emerged. 

After what happened in the lame duck session, when Ohio lawmakers came one vote away from overriding then Gov. John Kasich’s veto, we know there are more than likely enough votes to pass the Heartbeat Bill. Now, Ohio has a governor who will sign the bill and it could be put into law sometime very soon.

Of course, there is the typical opposition from abortion supporters. Oddly, in past years the bill was opposed by Ohio Right to Life. But this time around, opposition isn’t coming from Ohio Right to Life (who now supports the bill).  In the past, some incrementalists opposed the bill because it went too far. This time some pro-life advocates are opposing the legislation because it doesn’t go far enough.

Aided by an interview with former State Representative Christian Hagan, Mark tackles this difficult topic by comparing both views.

With the changing composition of the Supreme Court, and the uncertain status of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there could soon be enough justices to overturn Roe v Wade, which would return the abortion issue back where it belongs to the state legislatures. This is another reason why we need to understand the best way forward.
