Rape and Abortion

I saw a comment on a friend’s blog this week about her stand against abortion in light of the new Texas law.  I was tempted to respond to it, but I knew my response would be too lengthy to put in someone else’s comments.  Emotion-filled reactions to emotion-filled topics are not easy to examine in brief.  A slow, reasoned approach is needed.  That’s what I offer here in a spirit of gentleness and love for all.

Lindsey D wrote, “Talk to me about the underage girl who gets raped and doesn’t know she’s pregnant or is afraid to tell her parents – tell me about what choice she had and what choices she’s remained with?”

Lindsay correctly points out the agony of rape and then the compounded pain of a pregnancy as a result.  That pain makes a victim’s choices difficult to make.  I submit that, if reason is allowed in, the choices become clearer if not easier despite the emotion.

This scenario involves three people inextricably linked by one horrid event; the victim, the perpetrator, and the unborn child.  Biblically, the unborn child is an individual as much as any person outside of womb.

For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.  David in Psalm 139:13

Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb: “I am the Lord, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself;  Isaiah 44:24

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”    God speaking to Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:5

The last verse from Jeremiah is especially telling.  God sanctified and ordained an unborn prophet in utero, not a fetus, something less than human.

The question becomes who should suffer for the crime of rape.  Obviously, the rapist.  As for the unborn child, should that person be killed just because it had the misfortune to be conceived in a brutal attack?  It can be argued that child is every bit the victim as the young lady who was raped.

The young lady is faced with the pain of having a child who is a constant reminder of her ordeal, but is that a justification to kill the child, a person known and loved by God?

It is said that there are two choices one faces throughout life; the easy thing or the right thing.  Indeed, Jesus warns us of this in Matthew 7:13 –

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

I submit that it is possible for mother and child to know happiness in each other…eventually.  It is a narrow gate, but it leads to life and healing.

Lindsey then wrote, “Tell me why you had a choice to go get a vaccine and did so – to protect others and yourself and then tell me how people choosing not to are allowed that option while I have a 25 year old friend whose kidneys are failing because someone chose not to get the vaccine? What choice did she have after she made the right one and then was forced to lay dying and alone because someone else chose for themselves?

“I want to know how it’s different. I want to understand why her beating heart doesn’t matter but an unborn child conceived out of incest or rape has the ability to change another child’s life forever.”

First, let me say I grieve for your friend and you, Lindsey.  I’m old, and I have lost many people.  It is a pain that is familiar to me as it is unpleasant.  My younger sister just died last May.  Believe me when I tell you I understand such pain.

You say your friend made the right choice.  I assume you mean she was vaccinated against COVID.  There are two things that should be pointed out.  First, if the vaccine was as effective as many believe, your friend would not be dying, regardless of whether anyone else was vaccinated.  Second, I don’t know that her case is absolutely the result of exposure to an unvaccinated person.  Obviously, people who have gotten the shot(s) can still get COVID and be carriers.  She could have been infected by someone who was vaccinated.

Equating her beating heart and that of an unborn child of rape is not a fair comparison.  I know Caralyn personally, and I will vouch that she holds your friend’s beating heart as dearly as anyone else’s…born or unborn.

But that is not the real question here.  You are charging the unborn child with changing “another child’s life forever.”  I assume you mean negatively, that the unborn person is the one responsible for the damage done to the rape victim.  The unborn is not the author of the situation, but a fellow victim.  Should the unborn be given a death sentence for being a victim?

You do make an accurate point, though, when your write, “…an unborn child conceived out of incest or rape has the ability to change another child’s life forever.”  The child can affect the mother’s life.  That child can love the mother unconditionally.  That child will nestle against her, giving love as well as receiving it.  Do you see that, if the young mother chooses, that child will be the balm on her wound of rape?

I don’t deny any of the pain you have nor any of the pain that lies ahead during the pregnancy.  I do deny that the long-term result must be a lifetime of pain.  The narrow gate holds the greatest promise and the greatest potential for healing.

Finally, Lindsey wrote, “And if I get pregnant and it’s dangerous for me and the baby to go to term (as it would be) – what right do you have to tell me to kill us both?”

Let’s start with the fifth commandment, you shall not murder, often misinterpreted as you shall not kill.  Both are the acting of ending a life, but murder is a slightly different matter.  It is defined as “the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another.”  Killing is permitted in certain circumstances.

For example, the US soldiers in World War Two killed but by and large did not murder.  The United States and its allies were fighting in a defensive mode, making the killing lawful.  The Bible agrees with this interpretation.

To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up.  Ecclesiastes 3:3

For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.     Romans 13:3-4

Clearly, in this sinful world, killing is sometimes necessary.  Governments in particular have the obligation to protect its citizens, including killing.

As to the legality and morality of abortion when both mother and child are in jeopardy, law schools cover what is called “justifiable homicide.”  It’s a very touchy area and hard to argue, but the upshot can be defined by this example:

You have a lifeboat full of people – too full.  If all remain, all will die.  It is legally arguable that a number of people can be thrown out to save the whole.

If mother and child are both in this lifeboat situation, it is understandable and legal to choose who must die.  Some parents agree to risk the mother and give the baby its life.  Others decide to save the mother.  I have no opinion on this matter, nor am I aware of any Biblical reference that can guide us.  I can only acknowledge the horror of that choice and grieve for those who must make it.

Lindsey, I hope you find this a reasoned response to your request for an explanation of “the black and white” of the argument.  Again, I offer this in gentleness and love.

State Sanctioned Rape

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.    Genesis 1:27

I just read an article on the Answers in Genesis website that simply appalled me.  The article is titled War on Women, but I like my title better.  Why?

Some state governments, California, for example, have decided to house prison inmates in facilities for the gender they “identify” as.  When a new inmate is processed into a prison, officials must privately ask each one how they identify sexually.

Unsurprisingly, hundreds of men are claiming a transgender identity and requesting a transfer to a female facility.

The contingency plans to deal with the expected fallout (rape) in female prisons are to provide condoms, morning after abortion pills, abortion, prenatal care, and adoption referrals for “pregnant people.”

Real women are even stripped of their identities as women.  They are now just “pregnant people.”

From the article:

The new resources are a tacit admission by officials that women should expect to be raped when housed in prison with men, where all sex is considered non-consensual by default within the system.

One inmate told The Los Angeles Times that staffers have been preparing for the reality of pregnancies following the law’s passage: “They say we’re going to need a facility that’s going to be like a maternity ward. They say we’re going to have an inmate program where inmates become nannies.”

This is where I normally type “Um…”  Instead, I’ll pause while I puke in my trash can.

Of course, the LGBT community is all in favor of this, but they have nothing to do caring for women or anyone else.  Their only interest is to advance their ideology and to hell with any consequences for the damage they do to others.

These are the sort of things we should expect to continue in a world that has abandoned God and made itself the final arbiter of right and wrong.

The one piece of Good News I can offer is that God has not abandoned us!  The saving power of Jesus’ sacrifice and His incomprehensible love remains as potent as ever!  No matter how warped the world gets, God remains the same…and on our side!

How Well They Lie!

But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”    Matthew 19:14

Weasel Words and Wiggle Room; this is a phrase I’ve always remembered from a legal clinic I attended years ago.  It’s using language that is deliberately vague enough to allow for reinterpretation later, if need be.  In short, it’s carefully planned lying under the guise of truth.

Wolves in sheep’s clothing, to use a more familiar phrase.

That’s what advocates of abortion and euthanasia use in promoting their lethal agenda.

Euthanasia, Death With Dignity, medical procedure, health care, reproductive rights all amount to killing people who someone doesn’t want around at some point.  They kill those they don’t want around and can’t defend themselves.

I know people who are suffering don’t want to live anymore.  Believe me; I get that.  My grandmother was dying of pancreatic cancer when I was college-age.  Trying to cheer her up, I asked her what she wanted for her birthday.  She wanted to die.  I had a handgun, and the temptation was there, but I knew that was wrong.

Death and I are old acquaintances.  I’ve seen more than most up close and personal.

Some people think they really are doing the subject a service.  They truly believe they are doing the right thing, because of the language that’s been employed to justify it.

For example, there is no glory on a battlefield.  No one is thinking of honor.  There’s terror and other scramble to stay alive, to protect yourself and your comrades.  Glory and honor?  Those are constructs for the living to assuage grief.  We might be proud that someone died fighting against evil, but that’s as far as I think anyone can honestly go.

A fetus is a human being.  Period.  Just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s something else.  There are plenty of stories of aborted babies who survived and went on to lead normal and even significant lives.

Click on ABORTIONS to see all of my articles on that topic, including two about abortion survivors.  One is a repost of someone else’s article, Trick Baby.

Click on EUTHANASIA for all of my articles on that topic.  One is actually about a death roller coaster to make euthanasia fun…I kid you not!

I was going to say something about Planned Parenthood, but after doing a little research I can see where both sides simply don’t have or disclose all of the facts, so both sides present suspect arguments.  See an article about the statistics debate in a Washington Post Article.  But that isn’t where the real debate lies.  Planned Parenthood performs abortions, and that’s wrong.  According to the Seattle Times April 8,2011, Planned Parenthood is the largest single provider of abortions in the U.S.  And that’s all anyone really needs to know.

The US Government Buys Murdered Babies!

You shall not murder.    Exodus 20:13

An April article shows that The Judicial Watch published a 600 page report in April that documented how the US government has been buying body parts from aborted (murdered) babies.  They discovered emails between Advanced Bioscience Resources and the FDA showing how the FDA paid ABR $12,000 per aborted/murdered baby!

Baby at 20 Weeks

The FDA also bought organs of babies that were aborted as late as 20 weeks, about 4.5 months…halfway to term!  Those babies were certainly viable at that point had they been born then, given proper medical care.

Young women who should have been mothers went home, carrying grief and guilt instead of babies.  Meanwhile, abortion clinics cash in on their trauma.

The Biden administration has now overturned a 2019 Health and Human Services decision that “all research applications for NIH grants and contracts proposing the use of human fetal tissue from elective abortion will be reviewed by an Ethics Advisory Board.”

That Ethics Advisory Board was dismantled and not replaced.  Before it was – shall I say it? – aborted, the Ethics Advisory Board only managed one meeting.  They rejected 13 of 14 project applications requesting use of fetal tissue.

Does one need to wonder why it was disbanded?

I never cease to be amazed at how people hide their evil with sweet-sounding words.  “Advanced Bioscience Resources.”  It sounds so much nicer than “Dealer in Murdered Baby Parts.”

Health and Human Services.  Apparently, that organization isn’t worried about the health of all the humans in the US; only the ones that can’t fight back.

Abortion continues to be a blight in our country.  It something God will require a reckoning over.  But let us not be moved by simple fear of God – although it is a good thing!  Let us rather be moved by grief over the millions that have been sacrificed on the alters of expedience and self.  Let us be moved by a determination to see no more killings in the name of “heath care.”

The first step is to pray.  It is vital, but it is also too easy.  James writes in the New Testament that wishing someone to be warm and well-fed is a nice intention, but it accomplishes nothing.  Faith without works is dead.

Let’s all resolve to start with contacting our government representatives concerning today’s discoveries and how we can combat abortion.  Let’s act along with prayer!

Planned Parenthood – the Beginning

You shall not murder.    Exodus 20:13

Planned Parenthood has apparently distanced itself from its founder, Margaret Sanger.  Depending on who you talk to, she was either someone helping people with reproductive problems or she was a racist, white supremacist, and an advocate for eugenics.  In other words, she subscribed to the idea of helping humanity along with improving the gene pool by eliminating “undesirables.”

It’s hard to argue that abortion isn’t racist when you consider that the CDC reports over a third of all US abortions – 117,626 – are of black children.

Consider the following from a USA Today article in July of2020:

In promoting birth control, she (Sanger) advanced a controversial “Negro Project,” wrote in her autobiography about speaking to a Ku Klux Klan group and advocated for a eugenics approach to breeding for “the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extinction, of defective stocks — those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.”

In a 1939 letter to Dr. C. J. Gamble, Sanger urged him to get over his reluctance to hire “a full time Negro physician” as the “colored Negroes…can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table which means their ignorance, superstitions and doubt.”

Like the abortion lobby today, Sanger urged Dr. Gamble to enlist the help of spiritual leaders to justify their deadly work, writing, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Indeed, most Planned Parenthood clinics are in minority neighborhoods.  Consider that black women make up 13% of the female population while abortions of black children made up 38% of all abortions tracked in 2016.  Sanger is quoted as saying, “A free race cannot be born of slave mothers.”

No wonder Planned Parenthood’s CEO issued a statement that they are done making excuses for Sanger!

Eugenics was Sanger’s foundation and is a blight on science that started with conclusions others drew from Charles Darwin’s works.  The Carnegie and Rockefeller families essentially hijacked DNA research and used it to start the eugenics movement.  Hitler drew on their work, leading to the Holocaust.

I did a lengthy series on DNA; Pirates of the Sacred Spiral, which chronicles their research and the hijinks they pulled in the process.  The series starts with Pirates of the Sacred Spiral Part 1.  The hijacking of research by the Carnegies starts in Part 5.

The reason I bring up this series is due to a documented episode from the book about an actual sterilization program carried out in the Philippines in the 1990’s.  This is covered in Part 16.  Here is roughly what happened.

The Ohio State University invented a vaccine against pregnancy.  The active ingredient is hCG.  The vaccine worked by taking away the free pass reproductive cells normally get from the immune system so we can reproduce.

The Philippine Medical Association discovered some hanky-panky with their tetanus shots in the 1990’s.  The Philippine Department of Health discovered that 20% of tetanus vaccines they sampled contained hCG!  It was later exposed that millions of women in South America, Mexico, and America got those same tetanus shots!

They got busted when Human Life International and other similar groups found their antennae twitching when they heard reports of pushes for tetanus vaccines that were only targeted at woman of childbearing or pre-childbearing years.  This sterilization project was carried out by none other than the WHO!

The 1968 book, Population Bomb, has a telling quotation:

Our position requires that we take immediate action at home and promote effective action worldwide.  We must have population control at home, hopefully through a system of incentives and penalties, but by compulsion if voluntary methods fail…We can no longer afford merely to treat the symptoms of the cancer of population growth; the cancer itself must be cut out.”  (emphasis added)

Why this hard left turn in an article about Planned Parenthood and abortion?  Because, as bad as abortion is, it is simply one prong in a long-time global population reduction plan that he been pushed relentlessly forward by those who think they know best.  That plan only targets minorities and “undesirable” populations.

BeautyBeyondBones had a great article about how Hollywood continues to try to normalize abortions and even make them desirable.  As she said in her article, we need to resist this with our time and dollars and not patronize “entertainment” that goes against God and His love for life.

Humanity is being attacked from several directions.  We must be vigilant.  We must be prayerful.  We must support each other in our respective efforts to expose and combat this blight on our country and, indeed, the world!  Read your Bibles to remain steeped in God’s truth and pray.  Pray is if all our lives depend on it, because they just might!

Abortion Ritual

Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.    Matthew 18:14

I was looking at something once, unsure what I thought about it.  Then someone whose morals I can’t stomach mentioned he thought it was a pretty good thing.  If this guy thinks something is a good thing, that’s a full-fledged condemnation in my book!

If you’ve been on the fence about abortion, women’s rights, control of your own body…blah, blah, blah… allow me to ‘splain at you just who you might be in bed with:

THE SATANIC TEMPLE!

Duh, duh duuuuhhhhh!

Just like my example above, if Satan’s worshippers think abortion is a great idea and have created a ritual for it…do I have to say it?

It’s a freaking bad thing!!!

You can see all the blasphemy in the screen shot above, but there’s, oh, so much more!

The Satanic abortion ritual provides spiritual comfort and affirms bodily autonomy, self-worth, and freedom from coercive forces with the affirmation of TST’s Seven Tenets. The ritual is not intended to convince a person to have an abortion. Instead, it sanctifies (?!?) the abortion process by instilling confidence and protecting bodily rights when undergoing the safe and scientific procedure.

Nothing in there about killing babies, though.  They just use all the buzz words and feel-good language to hide the horrific thing that’s being done.

Under the guise of religious practice, they also circumvent the safeguards (did I just actually use that word in conjunction with abortion?!?) meant to provide alternatives to killing the baby.  Yes, a Satanic abortion is a “Religious freedom (that) ensures Satanists have access to safe (?) abortions that are free from unwarranted state interference.”

Um…

Here are some of the things that a Satanic abortion circumvents: Mandatory waiting periods, compulsory counseling prior to abortion, required reading materials, sonograms, mandatory listening to the fetal heartbeat, and compulsory burial or cremations of fetal remains (corpses to you and me).

My question is who, then, gets the remains and what do they do with them??

After the abortion is complete, the site says that you will “feel doubts dissipating and your confidence growing as you have just undertaken a decision that affirms your autonomy and free will. The religious abortion ritual is now complete.”  Are you familiar with the phrase “whistling in the dark?”

There’s more, but you get the gist of it.  Now it isn’t just Planned Parenthood making abortion easier, their new ally is The Satanic Temple making it a religious rite.

Like I said at the top, if Satanists think abortion is a good idea…

See the page on their “sacred” Abortion Ritual.

Fetuses Are People Too!

“You shall not murder.”   Exodus 20:13   (God the Father)

“Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven…Even so it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.”   Matthew 18:10 & 14   (God the Son)

This from the London Daily Mail – Identical Twin Daughters Born at 22 Weeks. Makayla and Makenzie were born on December 8, 2019 at 22 weeks, making them the second most premature babies to survive. Ever. Before saying any more, let’s look at some pictures. The girls are so small, so frail at 22 weeks one might wonder if they aren’t aborted and being harvested for tissue. Nope. These doctors are battling to save their lives, not take them.

Makayla weighed 1 pound, 3 ounces at birth, and Makenzie weighed a little less at 1 pound, 1 ounce. They both have needed surgeries. One girl had a hole in her heart that needed an operation and the other had surgery on her back for something else.

When they came out, they started breathing on their own, which was critical. The doctors said if they hadn’t started breathing themselves, saving them would have been about impossible. As of today they are not out of the woods, but everyone is hopeful. The lesson here is that people want to live! Sometimes they just need help. That is true for the infant who cannot feed herself, the child who doesn’t yet know how to navigate the world, the ill, and the elderly. Once we accept killing fetuses – who are people too – it becomes easier to kill the infirm and the elderly.

Here are other articles I’ve written concerning abortion and killing the sick and elderly.

Weasel Words & Wiggle Room is about how people with a pro-abortion/euthanasia/right to die agendas use nice sounding words to hide the ugly truth.

Man in the Netherlands Euthanized Due to Alcoholism relates how a man who couldn’t beat his alcoholism decided to end it all. He had a big going-away party with family and friends, which ended in the doctor killing him. His brother probably said the most honest thing I saw quoted in the article.

“If it was not so terrible, it would have been nice.” Um…

Told You So…. Is me gloating over being right about the spread of euthanasia. An elderly woman in a nursing home had a right to die clause regarding quality of life in her admission paperwork. Apparently, there was a disagreement over what constitutes “quality of life” and who gets to make that call. The family came in and helped hold her down while the doctor killed her. Excuse me…euthanized her.  Sorry. My bad.

Hope or No Hope is about a young couple who were told that their unborn daughter was defective and likely to die shortly after birth. They were urged to abort her – Eva – instead of carrying her to term. Read about their decision.

An Amazing Life recounts the story of Melissa Ohden. She was aborted and put in a garbage can. The attending nurse just couldn’t let that happen, and rescued Melissa, now 40 and married with children.

The Trick Baby – A repost from someone else’s site, the author was the child of a prostitute, a trick baby, exposed to all the drugs in her body.  Find out what happened.

There are many more. Just click on the Abortion and Euthanasia categories at the bottom of this page.

Let me close this with Shakespeare’s famous Seven Ages of Man:

All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms.
Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon
,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness
and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

Today let’s add an eighth stage to Shakespeare’s list and put it at the top.

Fetus; more than the parents’ desire and less than self-sufficient. Desirous of life yet not knowing the life to come; yearning for breath without yet knowing air…and at the mercy of all.

Slaughter

Fetus 6 Weeks

Head, torso, arms, legs.  Check!

But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.   1 Timothy 5:8

“You shall not murder.   Exodus 20:13

I’ve written numerous articles on abortion and euthanasia. Whatever angle I’ve written from, it mostly come down to one deceitful issue: language. See my article Weasel Words & Wiggle Room. For example, voluntary euthanasia is often called “Death with Dignity.” Well, that’s just silly! Nothing about death is dignified.

Here’s an excerpt from one of those articles, Man in the Netherlands Euthanized Due to Alcoholism:

********************************

Mark Langedijk decided he had had enough of alcoholism and the suffering it entails. It was time to throw in the towel. His application for assisted suicide – sounds more like what it is than the gentler, multi-syllabic “euthanasia” – was approved. He chose a departure date, and the plans were put together.

After 21 rehab visits over eight years, the family wasn’t sure if they wanted to take this seriously. That’s almost three rehab cycles per year. The one thing Mark was good at was quitting. That this time he decided to make the ultimate surrender shouldn’t have been a surprise in hind sight.

Apparently, the family all had a good time of it. Laughs, eats, and booze were the order of the day until the executioner arrived at 3:15pm (I know the article says “doctor,” but let’s keep it real, shall we?).

That’s when the crying started along with the I-Love-You’s and the sincere, if misplaced, assurances that everything would be just fine. Even the self-condemned was crying at the thought of not seeing his family until sometime, somewhere in the hereafter. His brother probably said the most honest thing I saw quoted in the article.

“If it was not so terrible, it would have been nice…”

Um…

********************************

Another time an elderly woman in Belgium was in a nursing home. Her admission papers gave the place the right to “euthanize” (read “kill”) her when they thought her quality of life was over. Well, a doctor decided that it was time, so she comes into the room with the family waiting and slips her a micky in her coffee. It seems she got the dosage wrong, because the ol’ gal started fighting back when she felt the needle.

Apparently, there was a disagreement over what constitutes “quality of life” and who gets to make that call. The family came in and helped hold her down while the doctor killed her. Excuse me…euthanized her.  Sorry. My bad.

Read the article Told You So….

Neither of those true scenarios sounded the least dignified to me. Call me crazy.

Last Tuesday I saw an article giving us the final abortion tally for 2019. And that total came pretty quickly, considering today is only January 11, don’tcha think?

fetus-sucking-his-thumb1

Seven and a half weeks

Drum roll, please! 42.4 million children were aborted in 2019. But let’s express that a little better. I sense the zeroes are feeling a little slighted. That’s 42,400,000 babies dismembered in their mothers’ wombs. The cries would be deafening, but in utero no one can hear you scream. I know I’d be screaming if someone dismembered me alive.

It’s time for another word – Slaughter! What else do you call that many mangled little corpses?  Hitler never killed so many!  And this is just for 2019!

You can read the article yourself at Answers in Genesis, but here are the highlights:

The 42.4 million deaths from abortion in 2019 was more than twice the number of all worldwide deaths caused by cancer, smoking, alcohol, traffic accidents, malaria, and HIV/AIDS combined.

That’s 116,164 lives lost every single day. That’s 4,840 lives lost every hour. That’s 81 lives lost every minute. That’s more than one per second! We need, more than ever, to boldly stand for life. This is a matter of life and death—the lives of babies!

What to do? Pray. Pray like every embryonic human being’s life depends on it. That’s number 1. Prayer is so often the last resort when it must be the first!

Second, if you know abortion is wrong, say something! Don’t be shy whenever there’s a chance to talk about it. That’s a huge failing of conservatives and Christians; no one wants to rock the boat. News flash: The Boat Needs Rocking!

Voting. When it comes time to go to the ballot boxes, know in advance where the candidates fall on abortion. Pro-Choice, another deceptive euphemism, means Pro-Abortion. That’s a big non-starter! Don’t vote for anyone who favors abortion.

Molech bOne of the reasons God finally let loose on Israel and allowed them to be taken as captives to Babylon for seventy years was because they sacrificed their children as live, burnt offerings to the god Molech. One account I read is that there was a metal statue of Molech that had a furnace, making it white hot. Live babies were placed on the statue’s outstretched arms and cooked alive.

We’ve murdered far more babies in the womb than Israel ever sacrificed so horrifically to Molech. If anyone thinks we’re not in His crosshairs, think again! There will be a reckoning!

Whatever other ideas you might have that are legal and moral, have at it! Maybe even comment below and offer your ideas. If you think this article is worth spreading, please repost.

42,400,000 children in 2019.  Gone.

UNPLANNED: The Movie They Don’t Want You to See — BeautyBeyondBones

What to Say

BBB 2My favorite blogger, Caralyn at BeautyBeyondBones, posted a very good article about abortion and a lack of active opposition against. It came from her recent sidewalk experience with some Planned Parenthood people advocating abortion. She dodged them with a no-nonsense answer of being prolife and moved on.

She wishes in retrospect that she had engaged them and made her own case for not killing babies. I invite you to read her article Drowning in Indifference.

I think she, I, and most people don’t engage because we’re not prepared. We know we’re against killing children in utero, but we can’t adequately verbalize it. I wrote her a comment that perhaps we all need to take time to visualize that debate and know what we’d want to say in advance. We must know what we want to say so it can just come when the opportunity arises.

We bloggers are usually preaching to the choir when we write about such issues. We aren’t going to change anyone’s minds here. But we can share our own arguments in favor of God’s way and not man’s. We can give each other ideas to better prepare each other for that fight.

Toward that end, following are links to articles I’ve written in the past regarding abortion. Some of them are exclusively about abortion and some only include abortion in addition to the main topic.

ToddlerAbortion relates a discussion I had with someone who is pro-abortion and got rather hot under the collar when she realized we disagreed.

Hope or No Hope is about a young couple who were told that their unborn daughter was defective and likely to die shortly after birth. They were urged to abort her – Eva – instead of carrying her to term. Read about their decision.

DNA Pirates CoverPirates of the Sacred Spiral Part 8 is an installment in a 20+ part series of the book DNA: Pirates of the Sacred Spiral. It’s a history of genetic research controlled by the Carnegies and Rockefellers for the purpose of creating a master race? Sound familiar? Their work is what gave Hitler his ideas. Abortion played a big part in their plans. Apparently, it still does. It helps to be informed on this part of abortion’s recent history for when you talk to people.

The Trick Baby is the story of a very successful man who was supposed to have been aborted. He was the child of a prostitute’s trick. The world would have been a poorer place if he had been aborted.

An Amazing Life tells the story of a woman who was aborted, but survived! Truly amazing!

There are a few more as well as my other category dealing with euthanasia. All offer perspectives you can bring to forming your own case for being prolife.

I also invite everyone to offer links to any articles you have that will help all readers with being able to express their views and change people’s minds to supporting life, not abortion.
