Sanctity of Life

God's Plan

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.

Jeremiah 1:5

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

Psalm 127:3

Once a baby is conceived, you must not abort it. You never know who that baby could grow up to be: maybe a saint, maybe someone who could save America, maybe even the President of the United States. So how can you destroy it as you wish? What if my mother had exercised her “right to choose” like people do today? I would not have been born.

Therefore, abortion is a sin. Each fetus represents the parents’ love, life and lineage. It is human; how can anyone consider it merely an animal? What is that cell that forms at conception? It is very much a human being! Within that single cell are human beings’ love, life and lineage. Therefore, it represents the parents and has the same value as the parents. The father’s love and mother’s love are contained within that would-be baby.

Tori Shaw

With Not Forgotten Ministries

Tori Shaw is a Jesus lovin’ homeschool momma with 4 kiddos! Tori and Bryan were high school sweethearts and have been married 15 years! God began this ministry 20 years ago when Tori and Bryan found out about an unplanned pregnancy and she had an abortion at 16 years old. God has healed her and she walks in freedom. She desires the same for others who have walked a similar journey.

In March of 2019 Tori's abortion story was shared at Hope City and on YouTube. Within days, over 4,000 people had viewed the video. Many women reached out to Tori with similar stories. A small group post-abortive Bible Study began just 10 days later. God began to stir within this group of women and other supporters. As He orchestrated events and brought things together, as only He can do, Not Forgotten Ministries was born.

Tori brought into the light a secret that she hid for 17 years. Instead of judgment and shame, she finds freedom in Christ. Listen to her story of redemption."

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery." (Galatians 5:1 ESV)

Here's a link for a short publication, which will give churches valuable information for their congregation.

Tori Shaw interview with Dr. Richard Panzer, 06-23-2023

Juda Myers


Juda Myers was conceived when eight men raped her mother. Her mother, Ann, was not only devastated by the crime against her, but also the attitude of her own mother who wanted Ann to have an abortion. Ann refused and, for the safety of her daughter, placed Juda up for adoption. They were eventually reunited when Juda was an adult.

Juda speaks across the United States and internationally. This includes Harvard, before Congress and politicians, and the United Nations, sharing the heart of victims of rape. She says, “It’s not just about my personal story but about the millions of unheard stories. The survivors’ words need to be heard and told in hopes of changing the future of these women and their children.” She, along with many other mothers and children conceived in rape, are available for speaking at conferences, banquets, for news reports, and any other meeting. A full audio/visual presentation will leave audiences captivated and educated.

Juda has written a book about her own story titled, Hostile Conception Living with Purpose: Real Life, Real Forgiveness, Real Freedom. Available through Amazon in paperback and audio form, a portion of the proceeds go back to CHOICES4LIFE. This book details her struggle to understand and forgive her mother, the rapists, and those who believe she would be better off dead.

CHOICES4LIFE was established February 2011 by Juda Myers as a way to promote and restore honor and dignity to women and children of rape conception through assault and/or incest. We offer hands-on help both financially and emotionally for those who are affected in this way. A goal is to educate the world about the value of every human life conceived. We seek to raise awareness of the multitudes living in shame that isn’t their own from sexual abuse, while aiding those affected. God has a greater plan than shame.

Mark and his family lived in the highlands of inner Asia for ten years as church planting missionaries, bringing the message of reconciliation to God through Jesus to remote nomadic tribesmen for the first time.

Heartbroken by the high infant mortality rate in their grasslands area and the family chaos that resulted, Mark and his wife established Nomad Infant Rescue & Care (NIRC), a locally-led medical initiative to provide education, resources and medical equipment to assist the perinatal needs of young nomadic families. NIRC also provides ambulatory care and crisis pregnancy counseling.
