“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” (Jeremiah 1:5)
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20)
[Where am I? This is January…not June. 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, 43 years after the passing of Roe Vs. Wade, some idiots up in Ohio are proclaiming that the premature ending of a precious human life is a “sacred” act.
The Christian Post reports that
A controversial billboard campaign calling abortion “sacred,” “a blessing,” “family value,” “life-saving,” and “a second chance,” among other things, was launched this week by the largest abortion clinic in Ohio.
The 16 billboards put up across the Greater Cleveland area all start with the phrase “Abortion is _____” and are completed with a variety of words in support of the practice.
“We want to push people to think about abortion in new, diverse ways with these billboards,” explained Nancy Starner, Preterm’s director of development and communications.
“We want the people in our community who have had abortions to know that they’re not alone.”
The clinic further argues as part of its latest campaign that abortion is “normal and necessary,” “good medicine,” “safer than childbirth” and “right for me.”
“To a physician, abortion may be a medical procedure that takes less than 10 minutes to perform. To a parent struggling to make ends meet, abortion may be the best way to love and care for your family. To a young person, abortion may be the chance to graduate,” it states.
Blasting the billboards, evangelist Franklin Graham said all of the statements made in Preterm’s ad campaign are “lies.”
“God says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.’ That’s exactly what an abortion business in Ohio is doing,” Graham argued. “Here’s a billboard for them—’Abortion is evil, because it’s murder.’ Pray that America will wake up to the tragedy of children being killed through abortion every day in this nation.”
Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action, also denounced the billboards, calling them “sick and wrong.”
“An abortion business is trying to normalize the killing of preborn children with billboards that call abortion ‘sacred,’ life-saving,’ and ‘a blessing.’ Here’s an accurate slogan: ‘Abortion is the killing of a human life,'” she tweeted.
The billboard campaign comes just months after Planned Parenthood Black Community sparked outrage over its suggestion that for black women in America, “it’s statistically safer to have an abortion than to carry a pregnancy to term or give birth.”
“Disgusting,” wrote Antonia Okafor, political commentator and CEO and co-founder of the #emPOWERed movement. “To encourage ppl like me to end our future children’s lives instead of empowering us to grow healthy human beings. Vile.”
Americans remain divided on abortion. Some of the latest national survey data provided by Pew found that in 2017, some 57 percent of American adults believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases, while 40 percent said that it should be illegal in all or in most cases.
Last year saw some significant pro-life victories, with activist group Operation Rescue reporting in December that 49 abortion clinics were closed in 2017, which is more than twice the number of clinics that were opened.
Operation Rescue argued that a major factor for these clinic closures is “a decreased demand for abortions.”
“There appears to be a correlation between clinics closing and a decrease in abortion numbers. According to the CDC, abortion numbers have been dropping steadily since 2005,” the group said.
“Some facilities have not been able to compete in an ever-shrinking abortion market and have been forced to downside or shut down. At the same time, when abortion facilities close, abortion numbers decrease even more.”
Christian Americans are not in a struggle against just Christianity vs. Secularism.
We are involved in a struggle of Good vs. Evil.
In 2003, Illinois State Senator Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), spoke in front of his colleagues in defense of the infanticide known as Late-Term Abortion…
I just want to be clear because I think this was the source of the objections of the Medical Society. As I understand it, this puts the burden on the attending physician who has determined, since they were performing this procedure, that, in fact, this is a nonviable fetus; that if that fetus, or child – however way you want to describe it – is now outside the mother’s womb and the doctor continues to think that its nonviable but there’s, lets say, movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just out limp and dead, they would then have to call a second physician to monitor and check off and make sure that this is not a live child that could be saved. Is that correct?
While The Lightbringer was in the Illinois State Senate, he opposed a state version of the federal Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, a bill which would make sure that babies who survive abortions are given proper medical care.
This measure also protected babies who were “aborted” through a purposeful premature birth and left to die afterwards.
During Obama’s U.S. Senatorial Campaign in 2004, his opponent attacked him for supporting infanticide by voting against the above-mentioned bill. Obama responded by claiming that he had opposed the state bill because it lacked the neutrality clause found in the federal version.
The Chicago Tribune reported on October 4, 2004,
Obama said that had he been in the U.S. Senate two years ago, he would have voted for the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, even though he voted against a state version of the proposal.
During Obama’s 2008 run for President, he stood by those claims.
In March, 2008, during a Townhall Meeting in Western Pennsylvania, Democratic Presidential Candidate Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) said,
Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.
Of course, Barack Hussein Obama was elected President of the United States. When he was “radically changing” everything about our sacred land, blood was being spilled across the fruited plains. Especially, in that same state of Pennsylvania:
On February 18, 2010, the FBI raided the “Women’s Medical Society,” run by Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a butcher, euphemistically killing babies under the title of “Abortion Doctor”.
The FBI entered the office about 8:30 p.m. expecting to find to find evidence that it was illegally selling prescription drugs. What they found was America’s Auschwitz:
There was blood on the floor. A stench of urine filled the air. A flea-infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs. Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets. All the women had been sedated by unlicensed staff. They also found out that a patient had died there several months earlier.
Until 2009, Gosnell reportedly performed mostly first and second trimester abortions. But his clinic had come to develop a bad reputation, and could attract only women who couldn’t get an abortion elsewhere, former employees have said. “Steven Massof estimated that in 40 percent of the second-trimester abortions performed by Gosnell, the fetuses were beyond 24 weeks gestational age,” the grand jury states. “Latosha Lewis testified that Gosnell performed procedures over 24 weeks ‘too much to count,’ and ones up to 26 weeks ‘very often.’ …in the last few years, she testified, Gosnell increasingly saw out-of-state referrals, which were all second-trimester, or beyond. By these estimates, Gosnell performed at least four or five illegal abortions every week.”
On January 22, 2013, Obama said,
On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we reaffirm its historic commitment to protect the health and reproductive freedom of women across this country and stand by its guiding principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters, and women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care.
The Liberal mind is fascinating. Sick and twisted…but, fascinating. On the one hand, Obama was saying that children are to be cherished and protected. I agree.
At, the same time, he stood by a woman’s right to kill her baby. I can hear the Liberals screeching right now.
That’s not a baby. It’s a fetus! It’s not the same thing! You chauvinist pig!
(Fetus is Latin for BABY)
If cherishing God’s gift of life makes me a “chauvinist pig”, you’re darned skippy I am! Yay, pigs! Sooey! That’s not a puppy growing in there, y’all.
The blatant hypocrisy that was shown by Obama, his loyal minions in Congress, and the MSM, the Liberal pundits on TV and Radio, and ignorant “seminar” callers and posters on Conservative websites, in defense of “their rights “not to be punished with a baby” and their resounding silence regarding the American Auschwitz known as the Gosnell Case, was reminiscent of Germany in the 1930s…and positively chilling.
Remember a while back, when MSNBC Host, and resident Communist, Melissa Harris-Perry proclaimed,
…we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility, and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments. (?)
Evidently, for Modern American Liberals, that only applies when the child is no longer a “punishment”.
Some good news regarding Americans’ Views on abortion can be found in a post from TheHill.com, published less than one month before last year’s President Election…
The most recent Marist Poll from this summer shows that a 53% majority of Americans support a strong pro-life policy of limiting abortions only to cases of rape, incest, or medical emergencies. An overwhelming 78% supermajority support, at a minimum, limiting abortion only to the first three months of pregnancy. Sixty-two of Americans oppose forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for abortions.
In the case of “Abortion On Demand”, I believe that average Americans have recognized the obvious.
As President Ronald Reagan observed, all those decades ago,
I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.
Until He Comes,
