[Where am I? This is July…not January. What are all these bright lights? What’s that smell? I don’t understand. I was inside my mother, sucking my thumb, all nice and safe and warm. The next thing I know, I feel this pressure on either side of my head, and I was ripped out of my mother.
Why is this happening to me? I have a whole life ahead of me.
I deserve a Mother and a Father. I will never have those. Grandparents, either. Heck, I won’t even get to know my cousins.
I want to know what milk tastes like. I want to hold a Cheerio in my hand and put it in my mouth. I want to know what it’s like to get my first tooth…to take my first step….to hear music for the first time. I want to hold a puppy. I want to have a first day in school. I want to have a best friend. I want to ride a bike. I want to have a best friend and go out to play with them. I want to know what Christmas is all about. I want to eat a turkey leg at Thanksgiving…and to see a fireworks display on the 4th of July. I want to wear costumes on Halloween. I want to go to ballgames with my Father.
I want to watch cartoons. I want to love and be loved.
I want to fall in love. I want to experience my first kiss. I want to have my parents drop me and my date off at the movie and then pick us up. I want to play sports in school…or be an artist…or be a musician…or, just be a kid.
I want to go to a pep rally. I want to dance at a prom. I want to get a report card. Heck, I want to taste a school lunch.
I want to graduate and go to college. I want to start work…and have a family.
I want to live!
Wait! What are you doing with those scissors! Don’t…]
I was born three days before my mother’s 40th birthday. To say I was a surprise is an understatement. As I recently wrote, I truly believe that they were going to name me “Oops”. That being said, I am grateful that God convicted them, regarding the sanctity of the life that my mother was carrying within her.
Now, 42 years after the passing of Roe Vs. Wade, Planned Parenthood is not just content with ending unborn lives, they are selling their body parts to the highest bidder.
The Christian Post reports that…
An in-depth undercover video released Tuesday shows a Planned Parenthood abortionist discussing how the billion dollar organization harvests and sells the intact body parts of aborted babies to fetal tissue wholesalers.
The video, first unveiled at the Center for Medical Progress website, is part of a three-year investigation into what the Center for Medical Progress is calling “illegal” practices by Planned Parenthood. Once received by fetal tissue wholesalers, the body parts are shipped to universities, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies.
Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services who performs abortions up to 24 week gestation in Los Angeles, is captured in the video from July 25, 2014, saying the clinics perform partial birth abortions to secure fetal body parts.
“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver … I’m not gonna crush that part,” says Nucatola. “I’m going to basically crush below, “I’m not gonna crush above, and I am gonna see if I can get it all intact.”She adds that “specimen” parts generally draw between $30 to $100 on the market. And suggests that the abortion procedure can be tailored to secure specific body parts.ed-parenthood.“At the national office, we have a litigation and law department which just really doesn’t want us to be the middle people for this issue right now, she declares. “But I will tell you that behind closed doors these conversations are happing with the affiliates.”Upon seeing the video, Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, said, “I was speechless for close to an hour.”Moore admitted in his op-ed posted to Facebook that he initially thought the video was a hoax until he confirmed its accuracy with pro-life leaders.“If this does not shock the conscience, what will?” asked Moore. “It is not only that infants, in their mother’s wombs, are deprived of their lives, but also that their corpses are desecrated for profit. This is not only murderous; it is murderous in the most ghoulish way.”Meanwhile on Capitol Hill…
Calls on Capitol Hill for hearings were swift.
“Nothing is more precious than life, especially an unborn child,” House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement. “When anyone diminishes an unborn child, we are all hurt, irreversibly so. When an organization monetizes an unborn child — and with the cavalier attitude portrayed in this horrific video — we must all act. As a start, I have asked our relevant committees to look into this matter.”
Boehner also urged President Obama to “denounce, and stop, these gruesome practices.”
Pro-life members of the House held a press conference Wednesday afternoon and likewise backed congressional hearings on the matter. Already, the House Energy and Commerce and Judiciary committees have announced an investigation.
Energy Committee Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., called the video “abhorrent” and said it “rips at the heart.”
Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Pa., said the matter would be investigated but noted “that which is legal is not necessarily moral or ethical.”
Prior to 1973, abortions were allowed in some states but restricted or almost banned in others. Every state legislature made their own decision on whether to allow abortions and under what circumstances. There was no Federal Law in regards to abortion. Then, in 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court gave us Roe v. Wade. It declared a Texas anti-abortion statute unconstitutional and, in doing so, affected abortion laws in many other states.
For any low information voters who might be reading, I present the following summary:
Jane Roe was an unmarried and pregnant Texas resident in 1970. Texas law made it a felony to abort a fetus unless “on medical advice for the purpose of saving the life of the mother.” Roe filed suit against Wade, the district attorney of Dallas County, contesting the statue on the grounds that it violated the guarantee of personal liberty and the right to privacy implicitly guaranteed in the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments. In deciding for Roe, the Supreme Court invalidated any state laws that prohibited first trimester abortions.
“We … acknowledge our awareness of the sensitive and emotional nature of the abortion controversy, of the vigorous opposing views, even among physicians, and of the deep and seemingly absolute convictions that the subject inspires.” — Justice Blackmun (1973), majority opinion in Roe v. Wade
When you talk to Liberals about this stopping of a beating heart, they will claim that, a human fetus is “just a clump of cells”.
From the scientific perspective, Dr. Carlo Bellieni, in his book “Dawn of the I: Pain, Memory, Desire, Dream of the Fetus,” says:
As soon as it is born, the child shows in a scientifically demonstrable way that it recognizes its mother’s voice and distinguishes it from that of a stranger. Where has he learned that voice other than in the maternal womb?
There are also direct proofs. For example, we register how the movements and cardiac frequency of the fetus vary if we transmit unexpected sounds through the uterine wall. And we see that at first the fetus is startled, then it gets used to it, just like we do when we hear something that does not interest us.
In fact, the scientific evidence is immense. We cannot understand how it can be thought that it becomes a person at a certain point, perhaps when coming out of the uterus.
From the physical point of view, at the birth very little really changes: Air enters the lungs, the arrival of blood from the placenta is interrupted, the type of circulation of blood in the heart changes, and not much more.
As I often say, only blind faith in magic arts or some strange divinity can lead one to think that there is a “human” quality leap at a given moment — certainly not science.
Everybody is talking about their rights nowadays. The right for a gay person to be “married”. The right to smoke dope…etc…etc. There are Americans out there who feel like they have the right to do whatever they feel like, regardless of their action’s effect on those around them.
Our Founding Fathers wrote that Americans have the right to” life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. In my opinion, the most important of these rights which our Founders bequeathed us, is the right to life, because without it, the other two rights will never happen on this mortal plane.
