Saturday at 117th street

As every saturday morning a lot of pro-life people go to the abortion clinic at 117th st in Miami. This is a very famous clinic because a lot of abortions are made there every day and the owner is always at the door waiting for any chance to bother pro-life people. Last saturday was our second time there and it was very different than the first time. The first time was calm and only a few people came. That second day we were praying the rosary as always and three cars entered to the clinic and went out in five minutes. This means they couldn't abort in that little period of time so that were good news. Also, before we arrived, a woman who was about to enter stopped to talk with the people that were there and finally didn't entered. That day the owner of the clinic was very rude to us and yelled at the people who were there. She even followed one man who was with us while he was talking on his cell phone. One of the pro-choice recorded us with a video camera triying to make us be afraid and when any car went out from the clinic they stand in front of it to not let the people in the car see us. During the morning a big group of teenagers came to pray the rosary with us. It was an activity theirs parish orginece. They all were very nice and it was very rewarding to see all those people there fighting for life! This saturday we'll repeat the experience going there again.


Yesterday we went to "radio catolica" in a program called "defiende la vida". It was program retransmited worldwide so it's a fantastic opportunity for us and for the people who listened to us to take part in this war against abortion.

In this program they asked us why we were here, what's EMC, what we exactly do here and that kind of questions...

All of us, with no associaton with the college career that we study agree in one point: "life is a beautifull gift of God and nobody can decide about it, only God" Also they asked for some experiencies we have with girls, I talked about Ivanna (I haved wrote a blog before of that case) and a new case here in the office.

The other day a girl came to see us to the office, it was a really difficult case. Firslty, she was ilegal in the USA, I mean she has no american ID, and she was pregnant, "obviusly" she looked the baby like a big problem and the abortion as an alternative, but after a few minutes talking with her we convinced  her to have a sonogram and she accepted!!

We pray for the life of this baby and also for the moment that when the mum see the sonogram her opinion may change and hopefully she would prefer to keep the baby! 


Following the EMC expansion project we have to offer a grain of sand in Cleveland. What we learned at conferences helps us improve our sidewalk councelling and encourages us to continue.

Many women visit abortion clinics. Many kindly stand with a smile and listen carefully to what you tell them but there are also many who do not want anything from you. Sometimes you can listen things like: Do something better with your time.

So I wonder if I can really do something better with my time? And now I Know it is impossible! These work worth it. Every person deserves to live. Is your life worth?

Whatever happens every day in front of the clinic, the lives saved by our presence and prayers are certainly more than you have reached.

From my deepest admiration I thank all those that reach a firm commitment to life and decide to spend throughout the year hours of their time to stay in front of abortion clinics. A time that surely can´t be better spent. Thank you.

Brand new concept: turn-over car

This is the story of my experience of last Saturday at 666 abortion clinic in Miami. This is of course a real story about good work, well done and done with real faith.

At an abortion clinic, prepared interns try to do sidewalk counseling, which is pretty hard mainly because the women who are going to an abortion clinic the only one thing that have in their minds is have that abortion. But there is a plus factor which is that in most clinics you have to enter by car. Well, this clinic especifically it's entrance is only by car so pro-lifers stand outside and pray. Pray for the innocents unborns, for their mums and for the people who work at this places.

What happened this last Saturday was that while I was there with a group of around 25 pro-lifers praying the rosary four cars with women inside who apparently were going to have and abortion, get inside the clinic. We prayed louder and stronger, all together asking God for help and it did work! Every single car which entered that morning last one minute inside that evil place. The good news are that an abortion cannot be done in less than one minute even more if the woman doesn't get off the car.

So, yes it did work. 

The conference 

This last week we have been in a meeting where a lot of people where talking to teach us about how to councelling the pregnancy girls that they want to have an abortion. I want to tell you two ideas i got from father Frank. He speaks very well and he really has a lot of experience about councelling. he told us that there are a lot of people thinks that it is okey to kill a baby because they dont really have a soul. They said to this people that when it is the moment when we have a soul? we dont know, so it is possible that right now you dont have a soul, so then can i kill you for that? 

He also shows us that this girls are not guilty about the abortion, it is the desesperation of a mother what makes a mother want to do such a desesperated think, we have to be there to support them not to judge them.

Because it happens

Pro choices proponents defend abortion claiming that in a difficult situation the best thing that a pregnant woman can do is have an abortion in order to have a better life, reaching their goals and doing whatever they want without anything holding them back.
  Cleveland, a few days ago, I met a woman who had a very complicated life. In her family there was a lot of violence, her father had problems with drugs and alcohol so she had a hard childhood. At the age of 18 she got pregnant, she told to her mother, they decided to have an abortion so they came into an abortion clinic. There the staff prepared her to do it, she was a little bit surprised because of the people that work there, they all looked unhappy and they were rude with her, she didn’t like the atmosphere. When she was lying on the table she got very nervous and she start to have doubts about having the abortion. Finally when she saw the baby on the sonogram she decided to have her baby, so she left the abortion clinic.
Over twenty years after this event, this woman has a great job and a great daughter who is studying in a good college; also she is right now in front of some abortion mills fighting against these crimes. In conclusion she has a good live and she is a happy person too.
As far as I've observed, especially from this woman, I don’t believe that having a child in a hard environment ruins a life. We are there because it happens.

You are my one and only.

You're just a Small Bump unborn, Four months you're brought to life, 
You might be left with my hair, but you'll have your Mother's eyes, 
I'll hold your body in my hands be as gentle as I can, and now your scan on
My unmade plans, 
Small bump four months then brought to life

I'll whisper quietly, I'll give you nothing but truth, 
If your not inside me, I'll put my future in you

Cause you are my one, and only.
And You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
Oh you are my one, and only.
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.

And you'll be alright.

Your just a small bump unknown and you'll grow into your skin.
With a smile like hers and a dimple beneath your chin.
Finger nails the size of a half grain of rice.
And eyelids closed to be soon opened wide a small bump, in Four months
You'll open your eyes.

And I'll hold you tightly, And tell you nothing but truth, 
If your not inside me, I'll put my future in you

You are my one, and only.
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
Oh you are my one, and only.
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
And you'll be alright.

And You can lie with me, with your tiny feet when your half asleep, I'll leave You be.
Right in front of me for a couple weeks.
So I can keep you safe.

Cause you are my one, and only.
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
Oh you are my one, and only.
You can wrap your fingers round my thumb and hold me tight.
And you'll be alright.

Your just a small bump unborn just four months then torn from life.
Maybe you were needed up there but we're still un-aware as why

The other side

Last Saturday, we spent the morning in front of Preterm, the most important abortion mill in the state of Ohio. With us there were some pro-life people who spend every Saturday morning, they explained us how to work there on those days; the presence of the pro-choice make the work harder for us.

What most impressed me was that these guys were supposed to give the women different options, if not, they wouldn´t be called pro-choice. They tried to intimidate us taking pictures and being mean. When a woman went into the abortion clinic, they act like security guards, when someone talks with us, these guys ignore them. It seems that we are making our best so they cannot fight against the women´s rights.

Here I show you a picture of them, preparing a strategy to stop us:


Cleveland i am gonna miss you

This week will be my last week in Cleveland. I would like to talk with you about the my experience in the Preterm clinic. We have been focusing our efforts in this mill because it is the biggest and most important killing center. Last Tuesday I had to say goodbye to some people who have been helping us in our working place. I would like to mention a specific group, 40 days for life. One of its main members, John Noall has been helping us a lot. He gave us some money, fresh fruit and some meals at Mc donalds. I am afraid I will not be able to see him anymore because next friday he will not be at Preterm to help us against abortionists. He told us that he was having some problems with his stomach so everybody pray for his recover, everything will be all right John, that is for sure! And as expected I will say that this is not a goodbye, it is a see you soon John and enjoy your sports car too.

National Sidewalk Counseling Symposium in Minneapolis.

Last weekend, some of us had the chance to go to the NSCSconferences in Minneapolis. We were very lucky to be there. We had the opportunity to get some training on sidewalk counseling. Despite I think the best way to learn is by experience, listening to those presenters in their lectures was good for us. Interns and whoever does sidewalk counseling, we do not have to be shy or scared. We need to have strength and trust in ourselves. Sometimes we may think that we won’t have the best or the correct words for all these women. However, God is with us in all those moments. HE will give us the best speech or the best words to tell them. It seems that this advice sounds very typical, but it’s totally true. After more than two weeks, I’ve seen that I’m not alone in this. I can always count on HIM.

There was this pastor called Walter Hoye. He told us about Stephanie Spidell and her daughter Khya. Here there is a short biography of Stephanie:

I'm a single mother of six children, including a special needs daughter named Khya, who was given an "incompatible with life" diagnosis of Alobar Holoprosencephaly, which means Khya's brain did not develop normally early in my pregnancy. She was not expected to survive the pregnancy. If she did survive the delivery, doctors predicted she may only live a few minutes or hours, six months at most. Khya is now almost two years old. The medical community heavily pressured me to have a late-term abortion, to end my child's life to "put her out of her misery". They said I would be traumatized if I saw her, but we loved Khya unconditionally and would cherish anytime we had with her. I'm very blessed and honored to be Khya's Mom. Along with my other five children, we are Khya's full-time caregivers and we want to share her story so that people will understand that all life is precious! What the world sees as "imperfect" or a "mistake", we see as our much loved little sister and daughter. Khya has taught us so much about faith, hope, and love. I thank God for picking me to be her mom.

You can watch the video by going to this link. It's beautiful.
To sum up, I’d like to thank the family we stayed with. They host us for two nights and they were super kind

with us. I used to live with them two years ago. When I told them that I’d be in town for three days, they

offered their house for the ten of us. Isn’t that nice? They also prepared an American breakfast on Saturday

morning which was delicious! We all want to say THANK YOU again for your kindness, and… see you soon!
You can see the ten of us enjoying our breakfast.

Minnesota y como volvernos profesionales

Hoy escribo en español por falta de lucidez. El fin de semana pasado fuimos juntos los grupos de Cleveland  y Detroit a una conferencia de Sidewalk Counseling en Minneapolis. Allí encontramos todo tipo de gente brillante con las que interactuamos y en algunos casos formamos amistades. Nuevas técnicas, nuevo aprendizaje y buenos maestros en nuestro camino a la meta, salvar cuantas vidas sean posibles. Estuvimos hospedados en una gran familia que nos acogió con muchísimo cariño, así como los ponentes de las conferencias. Además, pudimos mejorar nuestro espíritu de equipo viendo como juntos dos grupos de dos ciudades diferentes podíamos ser más útiles allí. La pega, el grupo de Cleveland nos perdimos el viaje a Chicago el día siguiente, pero a cambio conseguimos un viaje a las Cataratas del Niagara de parte de una de las familias que nos han acogido aquí. Es increíble encontrar gente que apoya tu trabajo de esta manera y que además se preocupa por mantenerte entretenido. Mucho peace.

España en contra del aborto

Asociaciones provida convocan una manifestación para el 6 de abril en Sol

Medio centenar de asociaciones provida han convocado este jueves la tercera manifestaciónunitaria en contra del aborto, que se celebrará en Madrid el sábado, bajo el lema "Sí a la vida".
Con esta protesta, a la que acompañarán varios actos en todas las provincias de España, se exigirá al Gobierno que "cumpla su compromiso electoral" y derogue la actual ley del aborto, informó Efe.
Rafael Lozano, coordinador de esta plataforma, ha dicho en una rueda de prensa que la convocatoria incluye actos por toda España y ha adelantado que estará "coronada" por una concentración en la Puerta del Sol de Madrid, en la que figuras conocidas tanto españolas como extranjeras darán sus testimonios en contra del aborto.
La directora general de la fundación RedMadre, Carmina García, ha clamado contra esta ley, que considera "injusta" porque "deja indefensas a las mujeres", y porque solo favorece "al negocio del aborto". Por ello, ha reclamado al Gobierno "que se deje de anunciar reformas y las haga".
A su juicio, "ninguna ley que permita el asesinato de inocentes es buena", razón por la que ha pedido "una mayor protección laboral" para las embarazadas y un incremento de las ayudas de paternidad y a las familias. Para García, es una "injusticia" dedicar "millones de euros" a las operaciones de aborto "en estos momentos de crisis".
Junto a ella, la presidenta de la Red Española de Asociaciones Provida, Alicia Latorre, ha pedido"levantar la voz" contra los políticos que "no están tomando decisiones" que afectan a "miles de vidas", y ha insistido en que no se conformarán con una normativa que "simplemente reduzca el número de abortos cada año".
La portavoz de la organización Derecho a vivir, Blanca Escobar, ha presentado su campaña derecogida de firmas internacional para llevar a la Comisión Europea la petición de reconocimiento de los embriones como "seres humanos con dignidad intrínseca".
Con la recogida de rúbricas, que se hace por internet y que se podrá realizar en casetas colocadas en la Puerta del Sol durante la concentración, se pedirá prohibir las investigaciones que supongan la destrucción de embriones y se defenderá que la vida "comienza desde el momento de la fecundación". "No estamos en contra del progreso, porque defender la vida es lo realmente progresista", ha concluido Escobar.
