Pro-life speech rights are under attack on college campuses across America. Recently, a pro-abortion activist assaulted one of our team members. Footage of the outburst at University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill, NC) begins with a woman asking our team, “Did you put these [signs] up?” When they respond affirmatively, she proceeds to punch and kick a member of our team.

WATCH THE ATTACK FOOTAGE HERE: https://bit.ly/2H24r94

Mark interviews, Austin Beigel, the 22-year-old intern for Created Equal who was attacked at UNC. Also, at the same campus later in the week an abortion advocate was arrested for stealing some of our signs.

The right to freely speak one's mind is one of the CORNERSTONES of our republic and one that many Americans shed their blood to protect. We will not let ABORTION BULLIES win. Our veterans and progeny deserve nothing less.

Also, Mark discusses the harassment of a female sidewalk counselor by homosexual State Representative Brian Sims. In response, A protest against pro-abortion bullying, and violence is being held on Friday, May 10 at the Philadelphia Planned Parenthood.

Dismembering America| The Mark Harrington Show | 5-2-19

 

A Michigan House committee approved two bills recently to ban dismemberment abortions that tear nearly fully formed unborn babies limb from limb while their hearts are still beating.

If approved by state lawmakers, the bills would add dismemberment abortions to the current state ban on partial-birth abortions.

Pro-abortion Democrats serving on Michigan’s Families, Children, and Seniors committee were speechless after veteran pro-life activist Dr. Monica Miller gave an impassioned testimony against dismemberment abortion at the state capitol.

Dismemberment displayed.

During her four-minute-long remarks, Miller, the founder of Citizens for a Pro-life Society, told lawmakers about how she retrieved dismembered babies from a dumpster behind an abortion clinic on the state’s east side. These children “died a most horrific, torture method of extermination,” she said. To “dismember the unborn means that we actually dismember them from the human family. We sever them from inclusion into the human family.”

Currently, 11 states ban dismemberment abortions: Ohio, Kansas, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, Kentucky and North Dakota.

In April, a judge blocked Ohio from enforcing its pro-life law. Read about that HERE: https://bit.ly/2IU8esz

Also, Mark discusses the launch of the national Protest of Stericycle, Planned Parenthood’s primary “medical waste” provider.

“The Abortion Divide” PBS Documentary Review | The Mark Harrington Show | 4-25-19

“The Abortion Divide” PBS Documentary Review | The Mark Harrington Show | 4-25-19

April 25, 2019

“The Abortion Divide” PBS Documentary Review | The Mark Harrington Show | 4-25-19

To watch the documentary, go here: https://to.pbs.org/2G8JI45

In 1983, a decade after the Roe v. Wade decision, FRONTLINE went inside an abortion clinic on the outskirts of Chester, Pennsylvania and filmed Abortion Clinic

Almost four decades later, FRONTLINE returned to Pennsylvania to film FRONTLINE’s latest documentary, The Abortion Divide, which aired on April 23rd.  

Here are my takeaways from the film:

  • Transition to medical abortions: The key difference explored in the film is the availability of a non-surgical method of killing babies:  RU-486, often called “the abortion pill.” In the film two women — Taryn and Megan — begin the process of a chemical abortion. They take one pill in the clinic and will take another at home. Of course, unlike in the movie unPlanned, the film doesn’t show what happened when the cramping and bleeding began!
  • Abortion reality: The film shows the aftermath of a 6-week surgical abortion in the pathology room but covers over the flask containing an aborted baby killed in the procedure room. Oddly, the film tries to have it both ways by showing abortion but not really showing abortion since 6 features of week aborted babies are generally not recognizable due to be torn up through high powered suction catheter.
  • Abortion pill lies: The complications and process of medical abortions are minimized in the documentary. One of the abortionists, Dr. Rebecca Mercier, says, “A medical abortion procedure is very similar to inducing a miscarriage. It is safe for women to do up to ten weeks of their pregnancy.” However, Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist, begs to differ. In a Live Action video, Dr. Levatino discusses the failure rates, risks, and adverse effects (i.e. abdominal pain, vomiting, heavy bleeding, and maternal death) from medical abortions.
  • Utrasounds matter: Despite some criticism of the Heartbeat Bills and other legislation requiring an ultrasound before an abortion, the film demonstrates how requiring an ultrasound affects the decision to abort.
  • Pill reversals work: Monique Ruberu, an obstetrician-gynecologist who opposes abortion and counsels outside the abortion center, tells women who are exiting, “If you took the abortion pill, we can reverse it.”
  • Restrictions on abortion facilities close clinics: Laws that require abortion facilities to meet the same requirements as ambulatory surgical centers closed eight abortion facilities in Pennsylvania.
  • Authentic sidewalk advocates: Counselors are depicted as thoughtful, law abiding, and sacrificial. One such counselor, Geoarge Asajiw, M.D., is shown taking at-risk families into his home.
  • Pregnancy Resource Centers and homes for pregnant mothers are shown in a favorable light.
  • Pro-lifers are vigilant: Now, with an abortion process that can begin by swallowing a pill, the film shows pro-lifers becoming more vigilant.

Dr. Ruberu says, “The RU-486 pill has completely changed the landscape of abortion, and it really necessitates that somebody is present outside of these abortion centers every single day, every hour that they’re open,” she says.

Finally, one of the most disturbing parts of the film is when Taryn, a mother of two who became pregnant with twins, says:

“What I hope I feel is a sense of peace, not only with myself and the decision that I’ve made, but also a sense of peace with these two beings that I’ve chosen not to bring into the world.  Thank you for choosing me. And I’m honored to be given this gift of life. I can’t do it right now. I can’t accept that mantle in terms of the other lives that I’m taking care of and I’m responsible for.”

One thing is clear in the film, there is not getting away from the fact that abortion is sad and tragic despite the attempts of some abortion advocates to destigmatize it.

Considering the source, overall, the documentary is a fair treatment of the abortion debate in America.

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

April 11, 2019

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.
