Newbie staff member on pink out day

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

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.

CBR Appoints Jackie Hawkins as Project Director

Jackie Hawkins

The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR), Southeast Region Operations, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jackie Hawkins as our newest Project Director.

Jackie resides in Virginia’s Hampton Roads.  She received her bachelor’s degree in Agriculture at Ferrum College and her master’s degree in Plant Physiology at Virginia Tech.  It was during her studies at Virginia Tech that she came in contact with Center for Bio-Ethical Reform.

Before she joined CBR, Jackie wanted to do more for the pro-life movement.  As a busy grad student, she could only spare every other Saturday to go to the nearest abortion clinic to sidewalk council.  One day the thought popped into her head: “Wouldn’t it be cool if I could work for the pro-life movement full time?”  But she dismissed the thought, “Nah, that’s not a thing. 

CBR came to Virginia Tech with their Pro-Life Training Academy (PLTA) and Genocide Awareness Project (PLTA) in the spring of 2014.  Jackie came to understand in a few short hours that pro-life work was her passion and that she wanted nothing more than to work with an abortion-abolishing powerhouse like CBR.  Lucky for Jackie, CBR is always hiring full-time abolitionists!

As fascinating as plant physiology is — well, maybe to some people — changing minds and saving babies is a more excellent career decision!

Jacqueline looks forward to working not only with university students, but with the Black community to help end the eugenic slaughter of Black children.

Welcome aboard, Jackie! We’re expecting great things from you!
