A MEMORIAL TO SANDRA CANO
By Allan E. Parker, Jr.


Sandra Cano went to be with her beloved Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, on September 30, 2014, at approximately 7:00 a.m. (eastern time).  She was a dedicated, born-again Christian who loved Jesus and believed in Him for her salvation.

 

Sandra was the former "Doe" of Doe v. Bolton, the companion case to Roe v. Wade.  I have had the blessing and honor of knowing her and representing her for 14 years.  I first met Sandra Cano by telephone on February 11, 2000, when she called to ask The Justice Foundation to represent her as a friend of the court (an Amicus Curiae) in the case of Donna Santa Marie.  Donna Santa Marie was a 16 yr. old girl who had been forced by her parents to have an abortion against her will.  Sandra was trying to help her recover against the abortionist for the wrongful death and loss of her child.  She became a prolife warrior.  Click here to see her website.  

 

I told her that we would be happy to represent her and that I felt the Lord had called us also to collect the testimony of women hurt by abortion and to take her case and the case of Norma McCorvey, the former "Roe" of Roe v. Wade, back to the U.S. Supreme Court to annul those decisions.  She said she lived for that day. She said the Doe v. Bolton decision had been a "doom on her shoulders" ever since it was decided.  She poured out a story of unprecedented fraud and deception on the court in her case.  She never wanted an abortion at all.  She thought her lawyers were going to help her get her children back, because they had been taken away by the State of Georgia.  When she was pregnant, someone else wanted an abortion for her.  In fact, Sandra fled to Oklahoma during the pendency of her case, Doe v. Bolton, to avoid being forced to have an abortion under Georgia's liberal "therapeutic" abortion law which allowed three doctors to grant an abortion if a woman's health was involved.  Her case created the "health" exception.  Click here to read Sandra's testimony before the U.S. Senate. 

 

Sandra was a woman of amazing courage and eloquence far beyond the few years of her formal education.  She fought as a pro-se litigant at first in 1988, to unseal the records and prove that she was the "Mary Doe" of Doe v. Bolton and that she never wanted an abortion.  She did not want the world to think that she ever wanted abortion.  She often said, "Why would anyone want to kill little babies, Mr. Parker?"  But she also grew to understand women's pressures and circumstances as we worked with her to collect thousands of testimonies from women hurt by abortion.

 

She was elegant and courageous - even appearing on the Huffington Post to defend the prolife position.  She also appeared in the documentary "The Gift of Life" narrated by Mike Huckabee. 

 

Sandra filed a Rule 60 motion in 2003 to reverse her own case.  Click here to read her affidavit detailing this fraud and deception on the Supreme Court.  The District Court held the motion under advisement for 18 months until 2005 and then ruled against Sandra.  The case was appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court and in 2006; the Court declined to take the case. 

 

However, on April 18, 2007, Sandra Cano's name appears in the Opinions of the U.S. Supreme Court on the side of Life.  The Court upheld a pre- and post-viability ban on partial birth abortions.  Her name shall be forever remembered as a Champion for Life and the Supreme Court cited her brief with 180 Women Hurt by Abortion twice as follows: 

 

"While we find no reliable data to measure the phenomenon, 

it seems unexceptionable to conclude some women come to 

regret their choice to abort the infant life they once created 

and sustained. See Brief for Sandra Cano, et al. as Amici Curiae in 

No. 05-380, pp. 22-24. [This is the TJF Brief citing the women's 

estimonies.] "Severe depression and loss of esteem can follow." 

See ibid.(emphasis added).  "The State has an interest in ensuring 

so grave a choice is well informed." (emphasis added). 

Gonzalez v. Carhart, 550 U.S. 124 (2007).

 

Sandra also had a heart of compassion for the disabled.  Her dying wish was to see an end of abortion and for the protection of her family, especially for her developmentally disabled grandchildren. Sandra was a woman of courage who in many respects had a hard life but never lost her faith in Jesus Christ.

 

Even to the end, as she battled cancer, one of Sandra's last prolife activities was helping to defend North Dakota's ban on abortion after six weeks.  Her arguments were based on Gonzales v. Carhart, in which her brief and that of 180 Women Hurt By Abortion, was twice cited by the U.S. Supreme Court.  The testimonies of those 180 women on the Brief with Sandra and another 4,320 testimonies of abortion are an essential part of the North Dakota record and Sandra's Brief.  In addition, Sandra argued that North Dakota's New Safe Haven Law eliminates the need for abortion after a human heartbeat is detected and meets women's child care needs without injuring women.  Thus, HB 1456 does not constitute an "undue burden," since all "burden" of child care has been transferred from women to society; therefore, HB 1456 is constitutional under Gonzales v. Carhart, 550 U.S. 124 (2007).  Click here to read Sandra's Brief.

 

Thus, her last public act shortly before her death was to argue that Safe Haven laws eliminate the burden of childcare and thus the need for abortion.  She advocated for a better way: save the children, save the mothers, do justice.

 

Please join with Sandra in her last request, to pray for her family and the end of abortion in America.

Values Voters Send Strong Message in Primary, Important Run-offs to Come by David Walls

March 5, 2014





Yesterday’s Republican Primary Election saw pro-family conservative voters and the tea party send a strong message in race after race across Texas.


With Greg Abbott easily topping the Governor’s race, as expected, much of the focus for the night was on two high-profile statewide races for Lt. Governor and Attorney General. Both races are now headed to a May 27 run-off. In the Lt. Governor’s race, Dan Patrick topped incumbent Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst 43% to 28% in a 4-way race, and in the AG’s race Ken Paxton topped Dan Branch 44% to 33% in a 3-way race.


Other statewide races saw similar results. In the Ag. Commissioner’s race Sid Miller takes a double digit lead into the run-off, as do Wayne Christian and Glenn Hegar in the Railroad Commissioner and Comptroller races, respectively. And all three current Supreme Court Justices that faced a challenger – Phil Johnson, Jeff Brown and Nathan Hecht – won their races outright.

In the Texas Senate, in one of the most widely watched races, longtime incumbent Sen. John Carona of Dallas was defeated by challenger Don Huffines. And in east Texas, incumbent Sen. Bob Deuell is headed to a run-off against grassroots challanger Bob Hall.


On the flip side, Sen. Donna Campbell successfully fended off 2 challengers and won with 55%.

In the Texas House, incumbents Charles Perry (Lubbock), Jonathan Strickland (Bedford) and Matt Schaefer (Tyler) all easily won their races while incumbents Bennet Ratliff, Lance Gooden, Ralph Sheffield, Linda-Harper Brown, and Diane Patrick where defeated by challengers Matt Rinaldi, Stuart Spitzer, Molly White, Rodney Anderson, and Tony Tinderholdt.


And in an open seat in HD 16, Pastor Ted Seago led in a 6-way race that is also headed to a run-of.


It’s clear that voters sent the message that they expect our leaders to boldly stand for faith, family, and freedom in Texas.

Dear Operation Outcry, Prayer Warriors, and Supporters,
Monday morning the Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services will be open for public testimony in support of the bill. SB 1 by Sen. Glenn Hegar (identical to HB 2) has been scheduled for a hearing on Monday, July 8, at 10 a.m. in the Senate Health & Human Services Committee, Room E1.036 (Finance Room) Here is an official copy of the Senate's official notice:
 
 
"SENATE
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
COMMITTEE: Health & Human Services

PLACE: E1.036 (Finance Room)

Relating to the regulation of abortion procedures, providers, and facilities; providing penalties.
Witness registration begins at 9 a.m. outside of room E1.036 (Finance Room).

(The Senate does paper registration, not electronic).
 
The doors to the Capitol open at 7 a.m.
If you support the abortion regulation bill which is the subject of all the controversy, you should register in support of the bill. We really need women who have been hurt by the abortion industry to testify in large numbers.
However, Molly White successfully filed in the house hearing over 900 written testimonies of women hurt by abortion. I was the last person to testify about the harm to women caused by the abortion industry and the constitutionality of the bill. (See link to hearing at end of this email.)
If you would like to testify, be at the Capitol as early as you can. Please contact Molly White, Operation Outcry Texas leader at 1-254-721-2427 if you plan to be in Austin. Also, send your name and cell number to Queta Aguilar at eaguilar@txjf.org, who will be assisting Molly.
Tuesday, July 9, the Texas House of Representatives will consider the House Bill on abortion-industry regulations on the floor. The Senate MAY then receive the bill and take its own vote later that day. The House is expected to vote for passage. Please make plans to come to the Capitol before 9:00 a.m. to share this historic moment with us.
The Texas Catholic Conference is hosting a prayer gathering with Senator Eddie Lucio on the South Steps of the Capitol at 9 a.m. followed by a quick procession up to the House gallery for the vote.
 
ACTION ITEM
These are the Democrats who voted for life in the last session. They are under a lot of pressure from their party to switch their vote. Please call them TODAY and ask them to vote YES on HB2. Yes, today is July 4, but you may leave a message on their voicemail. If you cannot call today, please call before Monday.

Rep. Joe Pickett 512-463-0596
 
MESSAGE FROM GOVERNOR RICK PERRY
 
Dear fellow defender of life:
Yesterday was a moving sight to behold, the halls of the Capitol were a sea of blue in support of life. And after hours of testimony, we took a major step forward in our effort to protect the lives of our fellow Texans, as House Bill 2 was voted favorably out of committee. It was an energizing and personally moving day for us all. It was also a reminder that a lot of work remains to be done, but we are showing the state and our nation that we are up for the task.
Sadly, even in Texas, abortions are legal well into the time where babies not only feel pain but many of them are viable.
This special session, we will ban abortion after five months. We will protect women by ensuring abortion facilities meet the same standards as other surgical facilities. And we need your continued help to make it happen.
I am so proud to stand with you on the side of life and I thank you for all you are doing across our state and here in our State Capitol to give a voice to those who don't have one.
I encourage you to continue sharing your stories of life and hope with friends, family and lawmakers. Let's keep the momentum going on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, using the #Stand4Life hashtag. And text the word "LIFE" to 21824 to stay informed about opportunities to get involved.
Sincerely,
Rick Perry
 
For those of you who cannot come, we need your prayer support. Please commit to praying for us and for our state. Especially pray for God to send angelic reinforcement for His children that are taking a stand for Life.
For those that are able to, please send us a donation. We are incurring extra expenses and we would greatly appreciate your financial support. Click here to donate.
 
Advancing Life, Liberty and Justice in Jesus' Name,
Allan E. Parker
President
The Justice Foundation

21-Day Trek for Life

 

On March 17 - April 6, 2012, 39 young women -- each representing one year of legalized abortion in America -- will set out to walk nearly 250 miles of open road for a 21-day trek from the nation's largest Planned Parenthood center, located in Houston, Texas to the courthouse in Dallas where Roe v Wade was born.

 

 

 

 

 

A Young Woman's Account

 

They will leave everything behind to embark on this symbolic journey depicting America's tragic path of abortion, taking a radical stand for life as they share their personal stories of how abortion has impacted each of their lives. During this prayer journey, a video documentary team with an internet channel will stream the walk live, daily featuring a young woman's account of how abortion has affected her life. Some of these women are post-abortive, some are survivors of abortion; others are those who have been stirred by this national calamity and have come to walk for life because of their passion for the issue. Together, these women represent the stand for life in the midst of a culture of death.

 

 

A Post Roe v Wade Generation

 

A purposeful and sacrificial pilgrimage, this prayer walk will create more than cognizance of an entire generation who has not known life without the devastation of abortion. It will summon thousands of hearts across the nation to rally together so that these young voices will be heard.

 

 

This Generation's Declaration

 

It will enable these women, whose voice is the most powerful in this social and ethical power struggle, to confidently and compellingly express what is really only their's to declare: The young women of America want our nation to get BACK TO LIFE.

'The Response'

Governor Rick Perry's prayer during 'The Response' - A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis

 

 

"Lord, You are the source of every good thing, You are our only hope. And we stand before You today in awe of your power, and in gratitude for Your blessings; in humility for our sins.

 

Father, our heart breaks for America. We see discord at home. We see fear in the marketplace. We see anger in the halls of government. And as a nation we have forgotten Who made us, Who protects us, Who blesses us, and for that we cry out for Your forgiveness.

 

We pray for our nation’s leaders, Lord -- for parents, for pastors, for the generals, for governors -- that You would inspire them in these difficult times. Father, we pray for our president, that You would impart Your wisdom upon him, that You would guard his family. We pray for our military and the families who love them. Father, especially for those special operators who lost their life yesterday in defending our freedoms.

 

You call us to repent, Lord, and this day is our response. We give it all to You. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen and amen."

Federal Judge Suspends NYC Ordinances
Targeting Pregnancy Centers

by Catherine Snow
 
 
In the “abortion capital” of the nation, a federal judge offered a surprising rebuke against New York City officials on Wednesday for violating the free speech rights of local pregnancy centers.
 
The city council had approved in March, by a vote of 39-9-1, a requirement for pregnancy resource centers to post signs and tell clients what services are not offered — specifically abortion and contraception. The ordinance also puts the centers at risk of costly legal action.
 
Judge William Pauley of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York also granted the pregnancy centers’ request for a temporary injunction — or suspension — from the ordinance.
 
The judge wrote that the law’s “over-expansiveness is evident from its very language,” and would “upend established free speech protections.
 
“While Defendants apparently regard an assembly of people as an economic commodity, this Court does not. Under such a view, flyers for political rallies, religious literature promoting church attendance, or similar forms of expression would constitute commercial speech merely because they assemble listeners for the speaker.”
 
CeCe Heil, senior council for the American Center for Law and Justice, which represented the centers, called the court’s action a resounding victory and is confident the law will ultimately be struck down. In January, a U.S. District Court in Baltimore struck down a similar law in Maryland.
 
“This law, which forces crisis pregnancy centers to adopt and express views about abortion and contraception that they strongly disagree with, is constitutionally flawed,” Heil said. “The court clearly understood that this law punishes pro-life advocates.”
 
The Alliance Defense Fund also sued against the city over the law, as it threatens nonmedical, pro-life centers with steep fines and potential closure if they don’t post signs and publish in their ads that the city health department encourages women to go elsewhere.
 
The Centers for Disease Control has reported that nearly 41percent of all pregnancies in New York City end in abortion. Yet, the pregnancy centers are saving lives. Expectant Mother Care Centers, the plaintiff in the case, has served more than 100,000 women since 1985, and helped save over 40,000 pre-born babies.
 
FOR MORE INFORMATION
 
Read the District Court's Decision, granting preliminary injunction.

Read the ordinance passed by the New York City Council targeting pregnancy centers.

Mass Litigation for Citizen Rights by the Justice Foundation

 

 

After being contacted by JoAnn Fleming of "Grassroots America - We the People," discussing the need for litigation with supporters of the San Antonio Tea Party, spending time in prayer and fasting, and at the request of many other citizens, The Board of Trustees of The Justice Foundation has authorized the attorneys of The Justice Foundation to represent a group of at least 10,000 individual Citizen Plaintiffs to assert their constitutional rights as individuals to oppose the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and its companion Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 on the grounds that they:

 

* Exceed Congress's contitutional legislative power, specifically the power to regulate interstate commerce

(Article I, Section 8, clause 3) and the taxing power (Article I, Sections 2 and 9) of the Constitution

* Violate individual liberties under the FIrst Amendment, including the right of individuals to object to being

forced to pay for abortions which they consider murder, thus violating the free exercise of their religion under

the First Amendment

* Violate the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution which reserves rights to the indivuduals and the states

 

The Citizen Plaintiffs seek to join initially with 10,000 others before the lawsuit is filed in an appropriate venue (probably in Texas). More Plaintiffs may be added in the future.

 

This litigation will be unique in several aspects:

 

* It will allow individual citizens to stand for the limitation of federal government power and assert the rights of

the states (federalism) rather than only relying on State Attorney Generals

* It will combine the structural federalism constitional objections to this unprecedented expansion of

government power and encroachment on the power of the states with a First Amendment religious liberty

claim related to abortion which has already been shown to resonate at the U.S. Supreme Court

* The People themselves will be asserting the natural rights reserved directly to the People under the

Constitution

 

Any individual of any state who wishes to be represented by The Justice Foundation can sign up online via the Plaintiff Intake & Representation Agreement form. An enrollment fee of $100.00 will be required for individual plaintiffs. Plaintiffs may contribute greater amounts if they desire. Contributions in excess of $100.00 are tax-deductible, but the $100.00 fee to become a member of the Plaintiff group will not be tax-deductible since the value of legal services received will vastly exceed the $100.00 contribution. Payment plans are also available for individuals who need them. Post-abortive women who have testified concerning their abortion trauma in a manner admissible in court may request a waiver of the $100 fee, in recognition of the immense sacrifice they have already made to the Cause of Life.
