One chauffeured as a family caregiver. I will with you 65 million Americans without caring toward impaired chronically ill aging somebody with mental illness. Love one somebody who is a drug addiction issue.

That's a chronic impairment where there's a chronic. There's character and we're here to help strengthen family caregivers polymer safety and help them live a calmer helper, healthier and endure us in a more joyful life while taking care of somebody who has some very challenging needs of in my 35th year as a caregiver bringing a a lengthy level of experience of failure, not of their their kata goblet don't go down there Like that's a bad place. I've been down there. 888-589-8840 888-589-8840 will start off the Scripture John 1010 the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy this Jesus talking Jesus that I have come that they may have life and have it to the full.

John 1010 is our Scripture today and there's a thing for all of this and then I have a trivia question for you, but it's in the form of a drop the needle would play a song and see if you notice him okay see if you notice him, you get boat bonus points if you know who wrote it, but I will just give a little extra providence for the that him eating diving that 888-589-8840 I special guest here this week is been a very big week is week this month is it's a hard month for us as a nation because every time. Generally rules will remember that we allowed our nation to go down a very terrible path of legalizing abortion and this week organization pre-born. Many of you will know this organization led by Jim and Dan Steiner and they been working very hard to raise money to sponsor 3000 ultrasounds to help save lives and save souls of these folks at the reaching out to and they done it for end of this week with a great week and I want to introduce Dan to you and and tell you a little while.

One month my show today. The show is called hope for the caregiver. But there is a theme here of life is Jesus that have come that you may have life. We have a culture of death in this cult in this country and around the world and I was deeply troubled couple years ago when we heard from the governor Virginia. Talk about a child being born with deformities or special needs or whatever birth defects and they would put the child decided and have a conversation and this just deeply troubled a lot of people, including me, because I'm talking to a lot of families who are overwhelmed with the special needs child when you had a governor who is also a physician, basically allowing it and giving permission to to kill a child it is. It is a horrific set of circumstances that our country has devolved to and Francis Schaeffer call this out way back in the 70s and said this is where were going with this. And here we are in the Atlantic monthly came out last month and they talked about it. It was the maybe that was the end of down syndrome children because the weather doing this rapid testing of amniocentesis and so forth to chip test for Down syndrome in a experiment with this on it and in Denmark. I believe what you Denmark and they had 100% testing and the abortion rate in Denmark sold up to 95% with down syndrome in this country. It's over 70%. From what I understand, and so we got this this mentality this country that if if we don't if it's uncomfortable force. We don't like it were to kill and that applies to babies that applies to seniors and plus people with you all kinds of suffering going on in their life Go ahead and in their suffering and and we call it merciful that but that that is not up with anything in Scripture. And so Dan is on display. Did you had a very busy week and I'm glad to have you here and I will make sure I can hear you're okay with me. Dan Claire agreed to be on this morning look like you've had a of a very busy productive and meaningful week this week have achieved for any of meaningful pre-born, along with American family radio listeners have underwritten over 3000 ultrasounds that were going to give 100% every dime to our clinics across the American the highest abortion city offering contradiction to the narrative that you just described that, something the problem and it's inconvenient you can just dispose out at the one that wanted to see that it's a baby. In fact, the fit is her baby inside of herself and all who thought she is re-orientated to the truth that our great leader of AFR enough pre-born and hope, has this morning, Jesus the Christ says they'll know the truth and the truth will set them free, and that they don't kill their children down children handicapped children. They see their baby. I can tell you many many people I've met that have chosen life in the face of having out what the world would call handicapped child because they saw that baby in the ultrasound and in contradiction to the wickedness, the American Medical Association and the American College of arts theatrics in gynecology that recommends that you just dispose of these precious people.

They chose life cell is the joy and it's an honor to be on with you this morning Peter. Here again reaffirm an echo on the value of every life created in the image of God, not the image of American prosperity, not the image of once normal in our eyes, but rather in the image of God. These babies whether there severely mentally handicapped down syndrome, physically disabled in some fashion there. This spirit that was breed them them by the living God.

At the moment of conception and no Peter, you knew this but at the moment of conception, science now tells us at the moment of conception is all there's a spark that is not actually a luminescent light that ignites inch in the womb of a woman where the sperm meets the egg and I believe that that's the moment where the Spirit of God comes into that Internet baby. We know from the testimony of John the Baptist in utero of his mother, Elizabeth, that these unborn children doesn't say that the Downs children don't have. It doesn't say that that mentally handicapped children don't have it. Everyone has this spirit their eternal being with an eternal purpose. God is under underwritten their life by putting them on this earth and their mothers from all their days are known for them before there was yet one of them says in Psalm 139 and we have no right playing God, taking that away from so I just applied what you are doing here in your program every week, taking a stand for these precious legal. Let's once we start devaluing life in any form.

It's going to take us down very dark paths and what what brought me to this there was a guy in will end up in tracking the stories that have been happening. The guy in Tennessee couple years ago beat his nonverbal son with autism to death. A woman in Oregon shot her disabled son that you'll just go down the list of people that are dealing with this and what happens is they become overwhelmed the ghoulish dark thoughts of the isolation gets a minute there listening to the governor, Virginia, for example, whether the malicious should be done with and and this is what highly concerned that they were not value my Jesus and bring life and have it to the full 70 Rosemary's hope for the care they instead, Pres. freeborn board.org will go away. We got more to go and while in the emergency room with my wife as she was struggling with the COBIT 19 fires herself and I looked interested are you scared she said of what I've been through worse certainty of mankind's history with uncertain an article by Peter Rosenberger and then as her fever was approaching 103 she started singing in a place my trust, glory in the cross and that's how she has anchored herself in the certainty of Christ through her medical journey that is included in the Eastern regional different doctors and now the Cove in 19 Wisconsin uncertain as we can run to serve this article and more a.net/stand 24 seven emergency support increasing safety, reducing isolation, these things are more important than ever. As we deal with the challenges of COBIT. 19. How about your vulnerable loved ones. We can always check on them or be there in ways we like. That's why there's constant companion seamlessly weaving technology and personal attention to help push back against the isolation while addressing the critical safety issues of our vulnerable loved ones and their caregivers.

Constant companion is the solution for families today.

Staying connected staying safe.

It's smart, easy, and incredibly affordable. Go to www.mycompanion247.com today. That's my companion.

247.com connection and independence for you and those you care about my companion. 247.com your life is in talking about life were talking about the value of the St. and this is something that is troubling us in the Christian world as our society continues to go down this very dark path of devaluing the life we been warned about this throughout all Scripture you can see a lot of this and then we've had in the last 60 years or so. We've had people on the scene been sharing these kinds of things and yet here we are in a situation where we just the world just keeps a ramping it up and putting the accelerator down to go even further, let's go ahead and start you know, dying with dignity and all kinds of things that they counted into sounds really noble. Is it and got on the phone with me here danced@herpres.freebornandfreeborn.org they been working to help intercept this and then I throw out something to you. I don't rehearse the questions on the show because the don't know sometimes what I would ask until we go, less kids, but I have and I don't do a lot of interviews on the show. This is more color driven, but up.

This was important for this week this month to have you guys on here. I've been saying this to people for a while it if I'm wrong, feel free to correct that it was my show but that's okay you can correctly and unteachable event and I'm correctable to be corrected beat, but I am convinced over a period of time that you can't politically argue someone into a pro-life stance because it's a spiritual issue and if they don't have that spiritual component to God being the author of life it it you're just tried it. It's a try to make this into a political argument doesn't seem to work it. You've got, you cannot. You cannot separate the work of God.

In particular, the redemptive work of Christ in in in the into the pro-life conversation. It is a mob it might just be off the mark on that or or is that something you failed as well. Or, you know like notice. Everybody can opinion Peter but Gordon got pretty clear and says in John 1240 he blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understood here with their heirs, understand with their hearts, nor turned that they could be healed and so everything I believe Peter and sound like you do to buy your question that is spiritually driven whether the political scene where there's a fight for life.

Whether it and anything we have including those that may have handicapped in some way children don't discount the fact God sovereign in every situation and that you know I've long abided by this quote to your point, which is a man persuaded against his will, is of the same opinion still satellites a lot of time with those that that don't have any interest in hearing the truth and out-of-state state your case and be done with it and that you know but here's what we've got the distinct advantage rightly get the Holy Spirit dwells enough spirit of truth. Truth.

Jesus said he found the Paraclete and that that allows us to penetrate that darkness.

And so as we are led by the spirit of God and the word God. I think that you know there's some hope in being able to enlighten them and maybe we wont see you know I turning right at that moment of conversation that got them to continue to convict people as well and our jobs just love people on him one assignment right whether you are now under there for us or against us we love them. God defends us to get well and you close the word of God never returns void and were not responsible for results were responsible be obedient and the amount in this we put this out there. We don't know how that's going to germinate in someone's life and in if you if you're just trying to argue people about this. I'm like you, you're not, you're not and be successful. This is not a a normal political topics such as you know, should we increase funding for the military Thing or whatever you know this is a this is a deeply spiritual event on wind does life start. What is the value of life who was the author of life, you know, is there authority greater than our own reasoning and Schaefer said that the Christians were thrown to the lions because they worship Jesus the Christians were thrown to the lions because they espouse that there was a greater authority than the state or in that case, Caesar, and when you you tell the state that you are answerable to God the state been like that and and so you dated you will you worship whatever God you want as long as you recognize the authority of the state in and this is where our country is going to now that were having the statist, who were say that it is our desire, our belief are opinions that matter every to everything. And as believers were say no is the word of God. There is nothing else but the word of God and and so here it therein lies the battle, so are our our battle is not against flesh and blood, it is us against powers and principalities and we also have a date every clear directive to speak to the hearts of people.

This is what you guys are doing in your winning over hearts of the love your mission is is to not just save lives or saving souls.

And at at that in the last few minutes of the segment here.

Just tell me how rewarding that is in and take listers into those kinds of moments where were you the deep gratifying reward that that you a life is been rescued or sold has been pointed to Christ.

It really aircraft hard candy thing my girl comes in arsenic and under the pressure by her boyfriend. Maybe her mother to abort her child. They don't want to deal with the consequences of their aberrant sexuality fixed 5% of them are not married. And yet I recall you know of a moment came in and as she had a one night stand was pregnant she was with her 20-year-old daughter and choosing her for a cute housecleaner. She couldn't anyway see her way of being able to keep her job being pregnant so she wanted to abort the truck back into the ultrasound room. Peter and there on the screen was not one baby but two babies had twins and she's going to abort until she saw these babies on ultrasound and ultrasound. By the way, provided by an AFR listener Yunker privilege of sponsorship program and she she felt no I'm not even know I'm not going to do, can abort the baby and I can do it and kill these two babies and that so she shows life knowing that she wouldn't be able to do her job in a few months before pregnant especially with twins in her 20-year-old daughter who is in the room with her said mom I'll take you jobs for you. We need to let my sisters left and that so that's the power of what were doing together and file your listers have an interest in being part of this they can sponsor and ultrasound Peter by dialing #50 on their cell phone and say keyword baby Pound 250 keyword baby are operators awaiting for your tax-deductible donation to be part of the solution. But I'll tell you what that was a couple years ago when that lady came in and Victoria and Isabel are the twins, their wonderful little girls and they come into our office. Now she still doing cleaning shelter cleans our office in Los Angeles.

Three and actually pay her. She didn't want it that we do anyway but anyway, to be able to see these girls to talk with them. You now see them move now forward in their lives is just an unspeakable matter. You know you look into their eyes and women command sometimes holding their entrance that they chose like porn you look into the eyes of these babies anything in our life could've been the case that they could be in our lying in a trashcan behind clan nonparent. We are the direct competition for Planned Parenthood and Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Miami, Houston, Dallas biggest cities of America where we are giving them a run for the money and we've just begun.

Lord willing seller, whether whether the babies come out, society deems as normal or whether they come out as the incredible blessing that you know Peter of being like a horrible, handicapped child of God and to handicap daughters, one of which is with Jesus today and I cannot adequately express the blessing they are in my life. And so for those such as yourself that are standing in defense of these precious people, I think the Lord has a special crown that he'll give you for that and it's been a joy to be part of your program here today will I wanted listeners to hear this because I know their parents at their special needs children in need of your you're one of the menu.

You know that it can be extremely exhausting and and discouraging dismaying all the things involved. It is a difficult journey. Isolation is one of the hardest things every caregiver deals with, and in isolation, dark thoughts come to us and I wanted them to hear thoughts that reflect the word of God reflect life you know Dan is not doing this in a vacuum. He's done this as a father, special-needs children, himself, and he understands the value of life and once we start devaluing life where does it stop insulin like when the Atlantic monthly put out that article about rid of the ghetto eradicate Down syndrome. And here's have a good idea to test it. If the baby chose death sooner than we going to hate abort the child and kill the child will my question is do you think they're going to stop with down syndrome and that I would suggest you what evidence gives you any confidence of the gutter stop with down syndrome until anything that we feel like makes us uncomfortable is eradicated. The world is not. And that's a fools errand because were not going to have perfection on this earth were going to have flaws were going to have defects were to have challenges and special needs, and all these kinds of things.

But God's grace is deeper than all of the in of chronic pain. All of these things.

So Dan, I just want to know how much I appreciate you sharing these words to date with us and and please go out to freeborn.or get involved in Dan, thank you again and in your welcome anytime. Thank you for the work that you do it.

It really means a lot that your you're out there doing this in an please lift Dan up in prayer and his whole team Peter McCoy all right this is hope for the caregiver will be right back and I will get people save the know the answer to my musical trivia question.

See if they did. This is hope for the care of the Rosenberger healthy caregivers make better caregivers 880-589-8840 888-589-8024 seven emergency support increasing safety, reducing isolation, these things are more important than ever.

That's my companion. 247.com connection and independence for you and those you care about my companion. 247.com. This is the nation's number one show for you as a family caregiver feeling kind a home 888-589-8840 888-589-8840 okay our trivia question was in the form of the musical trivia question. Do you know that him you know that in another's court. By the way, are not sanctioned. Those are those are high dollar cords, but you know that him 888-589-8840 888-589-8840 and that the show was for caregivers, not for seminary professors who can Google or whatever and find out they so if you do have a caregiver story. I would recommend: that you'll do that. And if you're not let other characters take take a stab at it, but that the point of this thing today were talk about his life and making sure we understand the value of life. Jesus said in John 1010 the thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life and have it to the full and in our culture now has embraced this this whole thing. The death because this is unpleasant, we have to kill it if it's not what we want. Let's get rid of it and you go back to the Obama talk about if his daughter makes a mistake he doesn't want to be punished with the baby.

He didn't say babies they be punished by get by with the pregnancy you know and that's why he was so Pro yeah I don't think you're pro-choice into pro-abortion. But this is my opinion but these are the words he said and then course, he's the only to my knowledge, sitting US president who spoke in to Planned Parenthood in and close at a speech with God bless. Planned Parenthood.

To my knowledge, I think he's the only sitting US presence of done that.

I imagine there will be more down the road. This is our our culture now, but it doesn't start shoving it doesn't just end with what's going on in the womb. It goes all the way up to the aging population and you've got Zeke Emanuel who is now newly involved in our government again.

He was a heavily involved in Obama care, his brother, Rahm Emanuel, but Zeke is a big proponent that were spending way too much money on people over 75 and we need to be spinning on the other healthier people for healthcare know anything that's going to go and then you've got people that you know when the with her suffering. Let's go ahead and just end, you know death with dignity, and all these kinds of things. If you want to get up a clear handle on some of the stuff. Go back and look at some the stuff that Francis Schaeffer did back in the 70s house within live. Whatever happened to the human race. This is nothing new, but word where putting better marketing on it now is a cut as a culture and as the country doesn't seem so horrific.

But make no mistake, it is horrific and this is where we are.

It is a hard thing to watch someone suffer. It is a hard thing to watch those who loom large in our life decline is a hard thing to watch people spiral out of control.

But if we continue to entertain the thought that if it's uncomfortable for us. We get rid of it which is what our culture does were missing out on the provision of God's grace, sustenance is it of himself in the midst of this, we we we we miss out on him, revealing more of himself in this and strengthening us so that we can see beauty and an life in a way that we would not of seen it before.

This is John Butler and I produce hope for the caregiver with Peter Rosenberger. Some of you know the remarkable story of Peter's wife Gracie and recently Peter talk to Gracie about all the wonderful things that have emerged from her difficult journey.

Take a listen Gracie when you envision doing a prosthetic limb outreach.

Did you ever think the inmates would help you do that, not in a million years. When you go to the facility run by core civic and you see the faces of these inmates that are working on prosthetic limbs that you have helped collect from all of the country that you put out the plea for and their disassembly Sally's legs like what you have your own prosody and arms and arms. Everything you see all this. What is the duty makes me cry because I see the smiles on their faces and I know I know what it is to be locked in place where you can't get out without somebody else allowing you to get out course, being in the hospital so much and so long and so that these men are so glad that they get to be doing as as one man said something good family with my hands. Did you know before you became an amputee that parts of prosthetic limbs could be recycled now had no idea and I thought a peg leg. I thought of wooden legs. I never thought of titanium and carbon lags and flex the sea legs and all that. I never thought about that as you watch these inmates participate in something like this, knowing that there there helping other people to walk there, providing the means for the supplies to get over there, what does that do to you. Just on the heart level.

I wish I could explain to the world. What I see in here and I wish that I could be able to go and say the this guy right here Denise go to Africa with that. I never not feel that way out every time you know you always make me have to leave. I don't want to leave them.

I feel like I'm at home with them and I feel like that we have a common bond that would've never expected that only God could put together. Now that you've had experience with what you think of the faith-based programs.

The core civic offers. I think they're just absolutely awesome and I think every prison out there should have faith-based programs like this because the return rate at the man that are involved in this particular faith-based program and other ones like it, but I know about this one are. It is just an amazingly low rate compared to those who don't happen and I think that says so much that has anything to do with me just has something to do with God using somebody broken to help other broken people.

If people want to donate or use prosthetic limbs, whether from a loved one who passed away or you know somebody well groomed. You've donated some of your own for them to have it, how they do that please go to standing with hope.com/recycle staining without.com/recycle. Thanks.
