“What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?”
— Luke 15:4
Save The 1’s mission is to educate everyone on why all pre-born children should be protected by law and accepted by society, without exception and without compromise. Further, we wish to educate prolife advocates, legislatures, leaders, and clergy on how to articulate a proper defense of children conceived in rape or incest, as well as those with special needs. Our purpose is to tell our stories, to demonstrate the value and dignity of our lives, and take the discussion of the “hard cases” from “concept” to “real life”. We strive to reveal the truth that there have been tens of thousands of mothers pregnant by rape and tens of thousands of rape-conceived children all around us, and that there is help, support and hope for all in those unfortunate cases.
Are you tired of seeing exceptions in the law? Tired of mediocre leaders who accept a compromising strategy that will never end legal abortion? Setting the no exceptions/no compromise standard raises the bar and brings us better laws and better leadership – within the pro-life movement, within our churches, and within government. Please join Save The 1 in making a difference in the lives of all children all around the world who Jesus would call “the least of these” – the so called “hard cases” of rape, incest and special needs. Our speakers’ testimonies have already changed the hearts and minds of leaders – even 2 U.S. Presidential candidates, and, even more importantly, God has used us to change the hearts and minds of abortion minded rape survivors. We are very successful when given the opportunity, but, in some ways, need a little help getting there.
There are various ways to support our efforts. First, if you are struggling with becoming 100% pro-life, struggling to reject the exceptions, please realize that these are real lives you may be discounting. Truly compassionate support aids and protects the mother on her journey of healing while at the same time protecting the other life present, the baby’s life. Second, please visit our website, SaveThe1.com, our Save The 1 Facebook page, and the website of our founder and President, RebeccaKiessling.com, to learn more about us and read many other stories. Third, please bring our stories to others: your churches, pro-life groups, talks with friends and family and any other venue where hearts and minds can be changed. Fourth, if possible, please support us financially. Your greatly appreciated support will help us spread our 100% pro-life message.
