04.11.14 APRIL 11 = 78 DEAD

From The Esperansa Project
April 11, 2014



Today is April 11. The year is 101 days old. At the rate of one abortion every 1.3 days (average since 2008), as of today, 78 babies have been aborted in Guam's abortion clinics. 



We are praying, hoping, and working to ensure that as of June 2, mothers seeking an abortion will at least know that there are options to abortion, and that there are many wonderful people ready and willing to care for these children. 


On June 2, the Women's Reproductive Health Information Act will finally be implemented and all women seeking abortion will be given a booklet informing them of their rights and options and 24 hours to review it. 


Thanks to your contributions, we have been able to move forward with the printing of these booklets. However, we are still short of our goal. A dollar amount update is forthcoming but we did not want to wait for that to share this special message from Governor Eddie Calvo about the implementation of this bill. 


Perhaps you have already seen it on the news. If not, please take a moment to listen to it and share it. Even though the bill is now law and the booklets have been printed and will be required to be distributed, only public awareness like what Governor Calvo here brings to the issue, will ensure that the implementation of this law will result in lives saved.

Thank you Governor Calvo. Let us press forward.






The Woman's Right to Know booklet will assist mothers in knowing their rights and alternatives when it comes to an unwanted pregnancy.


Even now, there are at least ten people/couples, who have left their names with Child Protective Services, and are waiting to adopt. 


Sadly, CPS has not had a child available to adopt in 5 years while one small child is aborted in Guam's abortion clinics nearly every day


Thanks to Public Law 31-235, women with unwanted pregnancies will be given a booklet with information about alternatives to abortion and a 24 hour waiting period to review it. 


However, getting this booklet into the hands of those mothers depends on our ability to raise a total of $9,400: $8000 for the licensing of the medical illustrations, and $1400 for the printing. 


Since our first request, which was sent last week, we have only been able to raise $325.00. Thanks to the financial assistance of Kamalen Karidat and another donor, we were able to go to print so we would not have to delay another day getting this information into the hands of expectant mothers. 


However, Kamalen Karidat had to use funds they normally use for their own ministry which is the care of the poor and homeless, and needs to be reimbursed. Please help us do this as soon as possible. 


Send a check to Kamalen Karidat for any amount.

Please note on your check's memo: Women's Right to Know. Along with your donation, please include the attached donor form. A receipt for the donation will be executed by a representative of Kamalen Karidat and sent or emailed to you. 


We will keep you informed via email and www.esperansa.org as to how our fund raising efforts are going. As mentioned, we need to raise this money immediately.

FORWARD this letter to others who you know may care about this need, or feel free to use any portion of it to compose a letter of your own. Getting this booklet into the hands of women thinking of an abortion is (next to prayer) our greatest asset in the battle to save babies from death and women from regret.
