Aborted fetal material used in anti-wrinkle cream

What price will we pay for our vanity? Children of God for Life announced today that a bio-pharmaceutical company called Neocutis is using aborted fetal cell lines to produce anti-aging creams. From COG's press release:
“It is absolutely deplorable that Neocutis would resort to exploiting the remains of a deliberately slaughtered baby for nothing other than pure vanity and financial gain,, stated (COG) Executive Director Debi Vinnedge. “There is simply no moral justification for this.”... 
Neocutis’ key ingredient known as “Processed Skin Proteins” was developed at the University of Luasanne from the skin tissue of a 14-week gestation electively-aborted male baby donated by the University Hospital in Switzerland.  Subsequently, a working cell bank was established, containing several billion cultured skin cells to produce the human growth factor needed to restore aging skin.
The list of products using the cell line include: Bio-Gel, Journee, Bio-Serum, Prevedem, Bio Restorative Skin Cream and Lumiere....

“We know there are companies using moral sources for collagen and skin proteins. We intend to publicly promote these other cosmetic companies competing with Neocutis that are willing to step forward and contact us.”

Read the rest of the article HERE , contact Neocutis , and spread the word.

from the fire

I had a dream the night before last that will probably stick with me forever. I was somewhere around this huge oven, or stove, or campfire, and (this was disturbing) there were babies abandoned around it. They had been left there either to die or because people thought they were already dead, and I was so sad...I was watching them and realized two of the babies were still alive ...and I went to ask for help, and I pulled them out of the fire, and got them blankets, thinking I needed to get them to a hospital for burn treatment. But they had no burns, they were perfectly calm, healthy, living babies. The dream was so vivid! Still half asleep, I asked God what it meant and He said, clear as anything, "You are pulling babies from the fire." I immediately thought of Jude 23. Gasp!

"...snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh."

Here in Wasilla, we are in the middle of fundraising efforts to convert our local HeartReach Pregnancy Center into a medical facility, so we can provide ultrasounds for women in need. Currently these women have to be referred to the Crisis Pregnancy Center in Anchorage forty-five minutes away to get an ultrasound. Unfortunately, not everyone will make that drive to see the reality of the life inside them, so we are bringing that reality to them as soon as possible.

We are snatching them from the fire! Every time we send a check to a local crisis pregancy center, every time we vote for candidates who value life, everytime we support the business of someone who donates to the cause of life, every time we sign a petition furthering the cause for life. Every time we read the Constitution, and every time we educate ourselves and others about legislation and current events.

Every time we hold our elected officials feet to the fire, we are snatching the babies - and their mothers - out of it.

Every time we put a new ultrasound machine in a prolife facility, we win! Every time.

Therefore, since through God's mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. 2 Corinthians 4:1
