 Daniel and Angela Michael saw a flyer for a banquet put on by Pregnancy Resource Center of St. Louis. 

Wishing to know more about the speaker they went to Miss Missouri's (Amber Etheridge) web site. Imagine their shock when instead of finding a testimony to life, they found that the current
Miss Missouri is an abortion advocate. This was right on Amber Etheridge's web site prior to April 1!

Shortly after the Michaels informed Pregnancy Resources Center of this alarming truth the speaking engagements with NARAL and statement supporting the "morning after" abortion pill disappeared from Miss Missouri's web site. Included in this article are screen shots taken from this web site before it was hastily changed. Click on the image for a larger view and read it for yourself.

Christians would think PRC of St. Louis would be grateful although somewhat embarrassed at being made aware of this coup by the abortion industry. It is very sad that this appears not to be the case. The response was exactly the opposite with the Michaels being attacked.

Christians across America should be alert to research speakers invited to events by the many fine pregnancy resource centers and pro-life groups. Those working in these mercy ministries must do a better job also and be certain there is no compromise of God's Word or His children. - Pastor Steve Mashburn 

"Here she comes, Miss Missouri"
The only Biblical Position on Abortion: No Exceptions - No Compromise -No Apology

That's where we stand. Don't you wish all Christians would stand here on God's Word? 
Ephesians 5:6-7&11
"Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them." "Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them." 

It appears there was a "blatant conflict of interest." Could it be that the love of money blinded this Pregnancy Center’s administration staff even after the facts were presented? When confronted with the information regarding Miss Missouri’s (Amber Etheridge) pro-choice agenda and past speaking engagements, as recent as February, sponsored by Planned Parenthood and lobbying efforts recently for NARAL at the Missouri state capital, the marketing director of this Pregnancy Center commented: "We are aware of her speaking engagements and we talked about it and don’t see anything wrong. We are still going to have her talk at our banquet".

HELLO? 

We couldn’t help but notice this in their statement of principle by PRC: "This pregnancy center does not recommend, provide, or refer single women for contraceptives." At a recent forum sponsored by Planned Parenthood the reigning Miss Missouri admits she took the "morning after pill" and is an advocate for the (abortion inducing) pill. A call was placed with to the individual who was to be the M.C. of this event. They were shocked! With much prayer and a few phone calls, 24 hours later we were notified that Miss Missouri had been cancelled but the banquet would go on with an explanation that ‘Miss Missouri had a mitigating conflict’. 

A mitigating conflict? They should have done the noble thing and told the truth - that Miss Missouri is in bed, not with the flu-bug, but with NARAL. Mathew 6:24 "No one can serve two masters." Praise God that there are still some Godly Christians who don’t compromise with the world. There can be no compromise, no "reaching across the aisle," no "middle ground" in the abortion battle. Neither side will tolerate the other. When one chooses sides here, he is really choosing between God and the devil—between life and death!

Unfortunately, there are those crusaders who have fallen in love with the crusade. If abortion came to an end tomorrow they wouldn’t know where their next paycheck would come from or where their pension plan would be.

There may be ProLife organizations that DON’T want to see abortion come to an end. For such, mercy ministries have become a financial ministry. PRC took in approximately $1.8 million in income in 2001. Their highest expenditure is staff salaries. The director, pockets $55,000 salary yearly and the rest, $240,000, went to the salaries of administration staff.

 And in 2002 they received $750,000 in donations. I’m not saying that these people are not pro life, but the question is about priorities. Could it be that they can no longer see their primary objective - to stop abortion - but rather perpetuating their own organizations? If so, how sad. 

We cannot compromise. Just like Moses said to Pharaoh, "Not a hoof is to
be left behind." Exodus 10:26
