CBR Appoints Bill and Jeanette Shultz as Project Directors for the Carolinas

Husband and wife dream team

CBR’s husband-and-wife team Bill and Jeanette Schultz.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

We are pleased to welcome Bill and Jeanette Schultz of Raleigh, North Carolina, to the CBR family.  Hitting the ground running on Day 1, they have already spearheaded a number of CBR projects, including a GAP at Fayetteville State, Choice Chains at NC State and Wake Technical Community College, a School Choice project outside Millbrook High School, and a Pro-Life Training Academy for Raleigh-area activists.

Bill and Jeanette are formerly the owners and operators of Schultz Construction in Albany, NY.  In 2004, after retiring from the construction business, they moved to  Raleigh and began to focus more on God’s business.  They soon founded the Street Samaritans and Gospel Ministry, whose mission was to plead for both lives and souls, primarily outside abortion clinics and high schools.

Since 2009, Bill and Jeanette have been a regular presence on public sidewalks outside Wake County (Raleigh area) high schools.  In addition to displaying abortion photos, they have delivered God’s mail by handing out tens of thousands of pieces of pro-life and abstinence literature.

Welcome aboard, Bill and Jeanette!  We are already seeing great things from you!

If you’d like to share in this work, it’s quick, easy, and secure to support CBR online.  Whatever you can do will make a huge difference.   To support Bill and Jeanette’s work, designate your gift for “Carolina Projects (SE-NS).”

H. G. Wells at Fayetteville State University

Complacent or not many saw the photos

Complacent or not, many saw the photos

by Jacqueline Hawkins

Fayetteville State University (FSU), a historically black institution, was a very calm school.  While there was definitely a good response in some that you can read about here, many students were quite indifferent.  There were no protesters and very little cursing.

Only a few students opposed our message, and they were not at all vocal.  A girl passed out popsicles to her friends and fraternities step-danced for their peers.

CBR Maryland Director Samantha Linnemann noted that “the most surprising thing for our entire team was the total apathy and indifference of the majority of students.  Many students merely sat or stood talking with friends, seemingly oblivious to the true horror and tragedy of abortion glaring right in front of them. They were totally indifferent about the deadly toll abortion has on their community.”

It was all reminiscent of the Eloi people in H. G. Wells’ classic The Time Machine.  The Eloi were childlike humans who lazed about without curiosity or discipline.  They had no need for intellect or strength.  It was more convenient not to work, so they didn’t.  But all was not well.  The Morlocks attacked and ate them at night.  Despite this danger, however, they did nothing.

It almost seemed that some FSU students nonchalantly accept abortion, even though it threatens the African American race.  It is far more convenient to do nothing about it, so they do nothing.

Even a young man who claimed that he cared for his future children — so much that he would never subject them to growing up in a poor, single-mother home — was perfectly fine with decapitating and dismembering those same children.  He essentially implied that he would abandon his own child, if she were inconvenient.  Better to kill the child than work to provide her with a good life.

Sorrow and relief

Bill and Jeanette Schultz

Bill and Jeanette Schultz

by Jacqueline Hawkins

At East Carolina University (ECU), a staff member stared at the first-trimester photos.  Tears streamed from her eyes.  CBR’s husband and wife team, Bill and Jeanette Schultz, reached out to her with comfort.

Twenty years ago, she had two abortions.  She was young and unaware of the life growing inside her.  She had no one to help.  “If only someone had told me the truth,” she said.

After learning about the fate of her children, she felt deep remorse and sorrow.  She sincerely hoped that God would forgive her.  Bill and Jeanette assured her of God’s mercy and forgiveness.  They encouraged her to see her pastor and ask God to forgive her sin and heal her heart.

By the time she left she had a smile on her face.  The burden that she had carried for years was now a little lighter.  She was on the path to confession, forgiveness, and healing.  Isn’t that what the Cross is all about?

Raped at 12, still deeply wounded

Abort67 leader and student

The Genocide Awareness Project at Oakland University.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

She was raped at age 12.  She was told she would die if she carried the baby.  So the young girl aborted.

Now a student at Oakland University, she peppered Mark Williams of CBR United Kingdom with questions.  Lots of questions.

As they spoke, she opened up about her life.  She grew up poor with an alcoholic mother and an absent father.  Today she is a prostitute to make ends meet.

Mark saw how she had been deeply wounded in life, and how her pro-abortion stance was all she could trust.  After all, it had gotten her out of a very difficult situation before, perhaps when nothing else could.  (Not really, but that’s how she saw it.)

Mark told her how Jesus had helped him through many personal trials and asked to pray for her.  By the end of the conversation, Mark sensed that her heart and mind were changing.  He asked if she viewed abortion differently, after their discussion.  The young woman said she did; she even understood why we display abortion images.

As a result of this experience and many others, Mark noted that in America, while pro-aborts may start with an outburst of vitriol, there is often an openness that is not so common on the streets of London.

Perhaps because Americans are less inclined to keep a “stiff upper lip,” Mark was able to see how deeply hurt, abused, unloved, and rejected so many pro-aborts feel.  They confirmed it in a way he rarely sees in the UK.

Newbie staff member on pink out day

Jacqueline and abortion victim image

Exposing Planned Parenthood on their annual “pink out” day.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

As a newbie staff member, there’s a certain apprehension that precedes each pro-life outreach.  Questions go through my mind while butterflies take residence in my stomach.

What’s going to happen?  How will people respond to the pictures?  Will there be protesters?  Can I go back home, hide under the covers and come out when abortion is abolished?  These questions raced through my mind as I drove to a local American killing field.

Planned Parenthood (PP) was hosting their national “pink out” day, a celebration of prenatal decapitation and dismemberment.  The local sidewalk counselors and pro-life activists weren’t sure if this particular PP affiliate was going to participate, but they would make a preemptive strike with their presence.  We stood with abortion victim photos across the street.  The 40 Days for Life sidewalk counselors prayed and called for women to escape with their children.

As always, the apprehension died away as we took our places and focused on the task at hand.  In this case, the outcome was low-key.  We held our signs in peace.  There were no pinked-out pro-aborts.  A few passersby beeped their horns and gave us the thumbs-up.  Some used another digit to get their point across.  We call this phenomenon the “digital divide.”  One passenger in a black SUV used her phone to take pictures of our signs as she rode by.

Low-key does not mean hundreds of passersby weren’t confronted with the true horror of abortion.  Every minute of exposing abortion helps win hearts, change minds, and save lives.

That’s why I go forward … even when I’m tempted to go home and hide under the covers.

Rage and gratitude: A tale of two women

ECU Professor and Police

Enraged professor confronts CBR personnel and police.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

She shouted, screamed and profanely vented her anger.  East Carolina University (ECU) police officers were forced to intervene, stepping between this professor and CBR personnel.  Students could see the uncivil, vitriolic reaction of this pro-abort, in living color.

“Why did you come to this University?” another female professor asked.  Her reaction was completely different.  At first she was surprised.  After hearing more about our Genocide Awareness Project, she was thrilled beyond measure.  She thanked us for coming to ECU because of her great concerns over self-destructive student behaviors, including Satanism, abortions, and fornication.  She knew that great evil lurked on the campus, but that our presence helped to combat that evil.

Please help us do more of this.

You Should Have Been Aborted!

You should have been aborted.

An angry woman confronts CBR’s Maggie Egger.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

“You should have been aborted!” a male Grand Valley State University student shouted at CBR’s Jane Bullington.  While it hurts to be told these things, it could be taken as a good sign.

First and foremost, their anger shows that the images have pricked their consciences.  The images are disturbing, but Dr. Martin Luther King taught us that until people are disturbed by the status quo, there is no pressure for change.

When they say, “You should have been aborted,” they show that they understand, on some level, that abortion does take a human life.  They wish that our lives had been taken.  They sometimes follow up with, “I hope you die!”  Note the connection.  In other words, “I wish you were dead; preferably sooner than later, but better late than never.”

Granted, this is not a well-thought-out reaction.  But it’s often the knee-jerk reaction that reveals a person’s true thoughts.

We happily continue our work because some of these students will take their own words to heart.  One day, they will know that killing is killing, whether later or sooner.

Man up!

It's time to step up

Men discuss personal responsibility at Georgia Southern University.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

Men, you have every right to stand for your pre-born children.  Fathers have equal responsibility for the lives of their children.  Fathers have the right to say, “Do not abort my baby!”

Unfortunately, the pro-abortion culture says that unless a man is coercing the mother to abort, they have no say-so.  The laws reflect this.

At Grand Valley State University, many young men took time to let the pictures sink in.  They thought about the implications and asked questions.  They listened carefully to our answers and thanked us for being there.  These young men wanted to take responsibility for their future children.  They wanted to be men, not boys who ran and hid.

At Georgia Southern University, a young man came to our poll table and was about to vote “Yes, abortion should remain legal.”  He reasoned that since we don’t know a mother’s “situation,” we can’t outlaw abortion.  As I pointed to the pictures and asked if it was truly okay to decapitate and dismember a pre-born child based on the “situation,” he seemed less and less sure of himself.  As I asked questions, he finally admitted that a past girlfriend had aborted one of his children.  The time wasn’t right for a baby.  He later had a baby girl with a different mother, and that little girl was his whole world.

As we continued to talk, the young man started to look sad … regretful.  He thought about his dead child.  That child would have been his whole world, too.  But he had believed lies.  The pro-abortion cowed him to be silent, while an abortionist murdered his child.

Men, protecting your child is your God-given responsibility, so man up!

Women, take a step back and let the man in your life protect you and your baby.  Together, you can do it.

Walk a mile in pre-born shoes

by Jacqueline Hawkins

24 Weeks Comparison

Walk a mile in the shoes of the pre-born.  After all, you were pre-born too.

With tears in his eyes, a young man pointed to the sign with 24-week old babies—the unwanted child (an aborted corpse) and the wanted child (the premie in an ICU).  He was a student at Grand Valley State University.

“I was that baby,” he told CBR staff member Jane Bullington.  “I was born at 24½ weeks and spent 11 months in the hospital.”  Even today, his voice is raspy from the trachea tube that chafed his throat during those 11 months.  “That picture hits home.  Thank you for sharing my story.”

Because he was wanted, doctors worked hard to preserve his life.  But what if he had been unwanted?  The answer was all too obvious.  The pictures hit home when we can see ourselves as that unwanted child, weak and alone with nowhere to turn.

Not everyone can say that he was a black person or a Jew with a target on his back.  But everyone can honestly say he was in a group targeted for elimination.  Everyone was a pre-born baby.

CBR brings controversial abortion pictures to Knoxville

Philip Hamilton speaking to a pro-choice supporter at the GAP on Market Square in Knoxville, Tennessee.

by Philip Hamilton

The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR) recently displayed photos of aborted fetuses in downtown Knoxville, reminding passersby on Market Square that abortion decapitates and dismembers little human beings.  CBR’s display, known as the Genocide Awareness Project (GAP), exposes the devastating effects of a “woman’s right to choose” by focusing attention on what is actually being chosen.

The Market Square GAP was my first one as a new staffer for the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform.  During the course of the day, I encountered many people on both sides of the debate.

I spoke with a homeless couple who had lost custody of their children due to drug issues; they were staunchly pro-life.  They said that while their children did not have an ideal childhood, there is always the option of adoption.

Later, I got a pro-choice progressive to admit that late term abortions were morally wrong.  I told her about Planned Parenthood’s sale of fetal organs.  We discussed Virginia’s ultrasound law, which she supported because a woman should at least be able to see an ultrasound of the child before being able to kill him.  I told her that there should be at least a 24-hour waiting period after the ultrasound is done, so that women can have more time to make and informed choices between life or death for their children.  [The more time women have to think about their decision, the more likely they are to choose life.]  She supported a waiting period after I discussed the reasons why the a waiting period is actually “pro-woman.”  After seeing GAP, this progressive woman rejected some of the most extreme pro-abortion positions.  Not a complete conversion, but it’s a start, and not a bad one in only 15 minutes.

At the end of the day, I spoke with a woman with two young women in tow.  She supported our message, but ordered her children to look away from the pictures as we talked.  In spite of her belief that children should not look at aborted fetuses in a public square, she believed that teenagers and adults must see them before they can make an informed decision on the effects of “choice.”

We have a choice, too.  We have a choice whether to spend our time and treasure on winning hearts, changing minds, and saving lives.  Will you devote your time and treasure to stand for the right to life?

Bias Crimes and Science Denial at the Academy

ohn Dillinger commits a crime against science denial

CBR volunteer fugitive John Dillinger (not his real name) commits a “bias” crime by suggesting that gender is determined at conception. (We couldn’t possibly make this stuff up.)

The piece describes how a single statement of scientific fact was turned into a police investigation at Grand Valley State University (GVSU).  It was bizarre.

CBR volunteer John Dillinger (not his real name) was eventually allowed to leave campus.  (He is still required to report his whereabouts daily to his wife, but that’s something else and we don’t want to get into that.)  Anyway, …

Rebutting false claim that CBR intact-delivery abortion video depicts a miscarriage

Intact abortion.

Intact abortion, with beating heart.

by Gregg Cunningham

Some in the media have falsely claimed that the intact abortion shown in CBR’s video is actually a miscarriage, not an abortion.

Medical malpractice lawsuits have become so common that OB/GYNs practice defensive medicine.  They protect themselves by over-diagnosing, over-treating and over-prescribing.  No doctor delivering this baby as a preemie in a hospital would fail to provide neonatal intensive care.  Even if he had no compassion for the baby or his parents, the doctor would provide care to avoid being sued for negligence.  Warren Hern, in his book “Abortion Practice,” warns of the difficulty in estimating fetal ages.  A baby moving as vigorously as this one is presumptively entitled to care and would receive it — unless the attending physician is an abortionist, which is the case here.

Miscarried embryos and fetuses are virtually all still births involving a baby who expired in the uterus and was later born dead.  A preemie in a hospital is born alive and given intensive care — not slapped around in a pan as happened here with a baby who survived the abortion depicted at the beginning of the video.

Gregg Cunningham is the Executive Director of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR).

Carly Fiorina was right (video)


Intact abortion with beating heart - You can see the heart beating at around the 4-minute mark.

In the video (below), you can clearly see the heart beating at around the 4-minute mark.  For added clarity, expand to full-screen mode.

by the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform

Carly Fiorina, CNN Republican presidential debate, September 16, 2015:

“Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’ This is about the character of our nation, and if we will not stand up and force President Obama to veto this [Planned Parenthood defunding] bill, shame on us.”

Ms. Fiorina was referring to a Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR) video depicting a few seconds of a 17-½ week fetus, still alive and moving, following an intact-delivery abortion. In the link below we post the entire unedited video. The total running time is approximately 13 minutes and the video is in five segments as the camera operator turns the camera on and off.

CBR and the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), in whose undercover Planned Parenthood investigative video the CBR abortion footage appears, have been falsely accused of misrepresenting a miscarriage as an abortion. The first segment of the unedited video depicts the abortion itself, with the baby delivered alive and struggling in the abortionist’s gloved hand. Segments 2 and 3 depict the baby still moving in a stainless steel pan after repeatedly being handled abusively by the abortionist. Segments 4 and 5 are static gynecological shots of the baby’s mother.

This unedited version of the disputed footage proves incontestably that this termination is an abortion. Mothers at risk of miscarriage present at hospitals, not abortion clinics. Hospitals are in the business of sustaining pregnancies and saving babies. Abortion clinics are in the business of terminating pregnancies and killing babies. This video depicts a termination and the subsequent abuse and neglect of a preemie obviously delivered alive. No attempt is made to provide the neonatal intensive care a hospital would extend to a wanted baby. It is possible that the abortionists performing this termination violated both state and federal law by withholding care from a baby who survived an abortion.

Ms. Fiorina made reference to a baby’s heart still beating while its brain was being harvested (a process which Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services calls “digging”) and a former StemExpress “procurement technician” says, “I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think” (National Review, August 19, 2015). The article adds that “… her StemExpress supervisor instructed her to cut through the face of the fetus in order to get the brain.”

The unedited version of the abortion linked below depicts an intact-delivery termination and Planned Parenthood partner StemExpress admits through its CEO (Cate Dyer), “Oh yeah, if you had intact cases, which we’ve done a lot, we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety …” (The Daily Signal, August 21, 2015).

A World Magazine article, August 19, 2015, describes “… an aborted baby’s beating heart, a post-abortion occurrence that’s not uncommon, according to Ben Van Handel, executive director of Novogenix Laboratories.”

Ms. Fiorina’s characterizations are not hyperbole.

The terms of our abortion clinic access agreements explicitly forbid us from disclosing any information which could identify the abortion providers from whose clinics we obtain imagery. Dates, locations, affiliations and staff and patient information are confidential. Violating these prohibitions could subject CBR to legal liability and jeopardize clinic access for current and future projects. We are even obligated to delete the audio track on all of our videos.

The Grantham Collection is a component of the CBR abortion imagery archive. Questions related to this very disturbing video below should be directed to Gregg Cunningham, cbr@cbrinfo.org, 949-206-0600.

The column answers the standard arguments against abortion victim photos (AVPs).

To see what I mean by the MM-50, see the graphic at upper right.  As a movement, we give way too much weight to the opinions of (a) our friends, e.g., the pro-lifers who like our stuff on Facebook, and (b) our opponents, i.e., the people who hate us no matter what we do or say.

We should pay more attention to the MM-50, because they ultimately decide who wins and who loses.  They don’t come to our debates, watch our videos, read our essays, or anything else.  For these millions of ignorant and apathetic people, we have only 3 seconds to tell our story and prove it, before they figure out who we are and look away.  Only pictures can prove our case in 3 seconds or less.

Planned Parenthood videos: The empire strikes back (video)


It’s not often we help pro-aborts get their message out, but this defense of Planned Parenthood was so clear and compelling, we decided to make an exception.

It’s funny … until you think about it.
