Initiative 180 is a movement dedicated to bring awareness to the largest demographic in our culture – those whose lives are adversely affected by a past abortion.

Abortion seems like the answer.

A chance to turn back the clock. After the crisis is over, a quick sense of relief from social stigma may occur, but then reality sets in. Your life is never the same as you close yourself off from the rest of the world in silence and guilt.

Abortion touches everyone.

It is a polarizing issue whose legal and moral implications are debated endlessly both in public media and private conversation. But what happens after an abortion, to the mother and father whose lives have been altered by the decision and procedure? To the grandparents and siblings who have lost a part of their family? Over the last forty years, more than 57 million abortions have been performed in the United States alone, with over 1.7 billion worldwide. Those are large numbers to fathom, but it translates to 3,000 abortions everyday (just in America).

The bottom line.

There are a huge number of people who suffer from a myriad of symptoms of Post-Abortion Stress. Yet what happens after an abortion are virtually never discussed due to the societal stigma surrounding this subject.

Our Mission: to break through the stigma and tear down the walls of silence so millions can find the help they need and the peace they desire from past decisions.

Planned Parenthood: 100 Years Old

I stood outside a Planned Parenthood facility yesterday with many others in support of the 40 Days for Life, an international and inter-denominational prayer vigil to end abortion in our lifetime. I stood beside a black pastor who comes to this Planned Parenthood facility every Saturday, holding his sign, “Black Babies Matter.” Why hold that sign, you may ask? Because black babies are aborted four times more than any other ethnic group in this country. He stands outside Planned Parenthood because they are the largest abortion provider in the country and because they are systematically killing members of his race. At the same time some are “celebrating” 100 years of Planned Parenthood. In 1916, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, created a back alley birth-control establishment based on the systematic eradication of those she deemed “the unfit” of the population. Ms. Sanger’s systematic goals was the classic textbook of genocide: “Genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction, in whole or in part, of an ethnic, racial, religious or national group. Any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the groups conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; and forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.” It was with these new ideas under which Sanger created her illegal, back-alley birth control business in Brooklyn, New... read more

Babies’ Lives Matter

Excerpted in part from “Do Lives Matter Only If We Say So?”, The Federalist, September 29, 2016 A long time ago, before ultrasound technology developed, I was an abortion activist. I know now it was to justify my own abortion. It was easy to fall back on “it’s not a baby, just a clump of cells,” or “it’s law, therefore it’s my right.” But those excuses didn’t stop the pain I endured for decades as a result of post abortion stress. We can’t use the excuse that preborns are not human. Now that scientists have developed 3-D ultrasounds, it is no longer tenable to claim that a child (a baby) inside the womb is somehow less human than a child outside of it. There is no more denying the humanity of the preborn. The only thing abortion supporters can do now is claim that a human life only has value if they say so. “The unborn person has no constitutional rights,” says Hillary Clinton on CNN. Secreteary Clinton readily admits the preborn is a unique, individual human person, only they have no rights regarding a decision to be killed. Despite this admission, she readily supports unlimited abortion to the ninth month. Many in life-affirming movement have long thought that if we could get people to see that the preborn child is indeed a human life, and not merely a clump of cells, we could win the argument. However something strange, almost surreal, has happened. Abortion supporters have moved the goalposts in a shocking way. They continue to kill even as they acknowledge the humanity of their victims. “Our arguments... read more

Is Women’s Healthcare at Risk?

The following information is derived from article dated 9/16/16 from The Elliot Institute ( A recent study of women in the United States has found that women who had abortions were more likely to be at increased risk of mental health disorders. The study, published by Dr. D Paul Sullins of Catholic University of America, used data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health, and followed more than 8,000 women for a period of 13 years: After adjusting for demographic differences and other factors, the study found that abortion during these years elevated a woman’s risk of mental health disorder by 45 percent. The study sought to examine any links between pregnancy outcomes like birth, abortion or miscarriage and mental health outcomes for U.S. women during the transition to adulthood. It drew on a national study of 8,005 women that surveyed them three times at average ages of 15, 22 and 28. Previous studies have also found an increase in mental health risks following abortion. A 2011meta-analysis of 22 studies, published by Britain’s Royal College of Psychiatrists, found that women who had abortions were 81 percent more likely to experience subsequent mental health problems, according to a new study published by Britain’s Royal College of Psychiatrists. The greatest increases were seen in relation to suicidal behaviors and substance abuse. The meta-analysis examined and combined results of 22 studies published between 1995 and 2009 and included data on 877,181 women from six countries. All 22 studies revealed higher rates of mental health problems associated with abortion for at least one symptom, and many for more than one... read more

Are Unborn Children Persons?

Information contained herein from By definition, humanity and personhood are interlinked. Developing humans in the womb have an intrinsically personal nature and even demonstrate “personality” in many of the same ways that newborn babies do. There are essentially two questions to ask in regard to embryos and fetuses. The first is, “Are they human beings?” The second is, “Should they be recognized as persons under the law with rights?” This has been the subject of much discussion this election year. Science proves that fetuses are human. Embryos and fetuses are fully and individually human from fertilization on. If this were not true, there would be no need to even talk about rights of personhood. Should humans be recognized as persons under the law? Yes, because humans are persons. If they have a personal nature, they are persons, who has the capacity to develop the ability to think rationally, express emotion, make decisions, etc. This capacity is something that a person has as soon as he or she begins to exist, since it is part of his or her nature. Because humans have a personal nature, humans are persons. As for the fetus, since it is a human (something with a personal nature), it is a person. The intrinsic humanity of the unborn qualifies them as persons and should guarantee their protection under the law. Since 1973, however, this has not been the case in America. The situation we are left with is this. There is a huge and singular group of living human beings who have no protection under the law and are being killed every day. Today,... read more

Remembering a Saint

Excerpted in part from article dated September 2, 2016 at Today Mother Teresa was canonized by Pope Francis. Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun in Calcutta, India, and gave her entire life in selfless service of the poor and vulnerable and staunchly opposed abortion. Breitbart news reports: “As Pope Francis canonizes Mother Teresa, we will also be reminded that the most vulnerable among us are the voiceless unborn children who can be legally eliminated at any moment, whom Mother Teresa fought valiantly to defend and whom Hillary (Clinton) is committed to forgetting.” 22 years ago, Mother Teresa spoke passionately against abortion in her address to 3,000 guests at the February National Prayer Breakfast. Afterwards, the applause and a standing ovation lasted nearly six minutes. Mother Teresa never pressed for the politically correct call for more government involvement in fighting poverty. She spoke pointedly about the unborn child as truly the poorest of the poor, and deserving of our protection from abortion. Her message, delivered only a few feet from then President Clinton and First Lady Clinton, was in direct opposition to the American policy of abortion on demand. While the crowd stood in ovation, they sat in stony silence. Mother Teresa stated: “I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills... read more

What’s At Stake?

Excerpted in part from an article by Marjorie Dannenfelser, Time Magazine, June 24, 2016. Peering into the future, how much damage could the replacement of Justice Scalia with a judicial activist for “abortion rights” actually do? Would the confirmation of the current Administration’s pick for the high court, really make that much difference to national abortion policy? Would the confirmation of pro-life judges, like those included in a list recently released by the Republican nominee, really play a dramatic difference in the lives of every American? The answer to both questions is an emphatic “yes.” The U.S. legal regime on abortion is ultra-liberal. We are one of seven nations (out of nearly 200 examined worldwide) that permit elective abortions after 20 weeks post-fertilization. As liberal as our legal framework is, however, it is also surprisingly volatile. In the past six years, 17 states have adopted laws to protect the unborn child at 20 weeks or earlier. In 14 of these 17 states, no legal challenge has been mounted. Whether it is lack of a plaintiff or fear of a court ruling that would uphold these laws, pro-choice forces have chosen to leave them alone for now. Under a pro-abortion presidency and with as many as four new Supreme Court justices in place, fresh legal assaults on the 20-week bans would be certain. The Democratic platform proposes repeal of the central pro-life policy of our time, the Hyde Amendment, which limits taxpayer subsidies for elective abortion. Time and again, advocates of legal abortion have abused judicial process to achieve policies they could not persuade elected officials to adopt. The Hyde... read more
