Pro-Abortion Blogger Gives 9 Reasons to Abort a Child

A blogger for a “parenting” website called “Mommyish” recently compiled a list of reasons to kill your unborn child. I’m not sure if the irony of a parenting website advocating for killing kids is lost on the blogger or not. But here’s the list:

1. Having a baby would endanger your life.
2. Your birth control failed.
3. You don’t want to have a child because of your career.
4. You feel you are too young.
5. You feel you are too old.
6. You feel strongly about overpopulation.
7. You are worried about the health of the baby.
8. You want no relationship with the person who got you pregnant.
9. You don’t want to have a child.

Do you notice the central word in all of these reason? It seems the only thing that should matter is “you.” Evidently the life of a unique human being is of no consequence to this blogger. I am particularly irritated by reason number 7 as the blogger suggests that if you are worried about the health of the baby you should just kill the child. Should we then kill the elderly if we are concerned their health is declining. What about accident victims and war vets whose lives are forever changed and whose health is now a concern. This is absurdity at its finest. Click here for original article.

From Mars Hill to the Holy See – Speaking Against Abortion

unborn babyI’ve been encouraged lately by the number of prominent people and organizations speaking up in defense of life. In my home state of West Virginia several dozen pastors and churches recently celebrated Illuminate Sunday; a day of praying for those harmed by abortion.

Though these pastors might be on a small stage in a country church somewhere lost in the hills, they represent a vast majority of people that believe abortion is a great immoral injustice perpetrated on our society by a rogue Supreme Court decision more than 40 years ago. But these humble Mountaineer pastors aren’t alone in their defense of the unborn.

Prominent West coast pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church recently penned an op-ed in which he reiterated the teaching of Scripture that abortion is murder, murder is sin, and therefore abortion is sin. Driscoll wrote:

“Both science and Scripture are absolutely clear that life begins at conception. Taking a human life is murder, by definition, which makes abortion a murderous act…Thanks to ultrasound technology and pro-life advocacy, our culture is beginning to accept the fact that an abortion doesn’t just remove “tissue” but ends a human life. Yet many persist in not only killing their child but also their conscience…this is a matter of justice—for the one million babies slaughtered every year as we play God and determine who lives and who dies…Abortion is not a matter of politics. It’s a matter of life and death, for 55 million and counting. Enough. You shall not murder.” [Read more...]

Gosnell Believes He Was Right

Kermit Gosnell, the disgraced abortionist convicted on numerous charges stemming from the investigation into his “House of Horrors” in Philadelphia has shared some of this thoughts on his work with a local Philadelphia reporter. The reporter shares those thoughts: “In this larger spiritual sense, he believes he was performing a service for people…It’s not as if he feels guilty about what he did. He believes he was a soldier at war with poverty. He has a sense of righteousness, that whatever rule he broke, it was worth it. He believes if he could have spoken about his rationale for doing things, he wouldn’t be in jail. He believes he was in a war, and that ‘they’ won.”

The level of self-deluded grandeur is hard to digest. Yet this man will be made a hero by the abortion lobby that has refused to condemn his actions or speak against what he did. Gosnell shows his narcissism by believing he only “broke a rule, rather than kill innocent children post-birth; among other things. This is the logical result of the culture of death endorsed by Planned Parenthood and abortion advocates. Click here for original article.

Roe V. Wade Will Be Overturned

One of the greatest judicial mistakes in US history was the Roe V. Wade decision to legalize abortion. This decision has been blasted by everyone from pro-life to human rights advocates for government over reach, human rights violations and absurdity. Pro-lifers believe the decision will be overturned, perhaps sooner rather than later. A recent article shared three common sense reason the decision must, and will fall.

Writing at LifeNews.com, Paul Stark says that Roe V. Wade will “buckle under the weight of reason, of democracy, and of human rights.” Each explanation is a concise pillar of support for overturning the decision. As science advances we are increasingly aware of the humanity of the unborn. As government over reach becomes a greater problem we are drawn to states’ rights and the liberty of each state to decide what is best – by the people, for the people. Without the need for government intrusion. Knowing the human rights violations taking place worldwide causes us to defend with greater rigor the rights of the weakest, most vulnerable of our society. The unborn are no doubt that greatest of this class. We look forward to the day when this decision falls. Click here for original article.

Judicial Nominations Are Important to Everyone!

Cornelia PillardOur President has offered the name of Cornelia Pillard into nomination to the District of Columbia Federal Court of Appeals.  That to most people is a relatively low-level blip on the radar and deserves little serious time to consider.  That is totally wrong!

There is far more to be concerned with regarding this nominee and everyone should be limbering up their dialing finger to let their feelings be known about her to their Senators.

Pillard will be required to undergo confirmation by the U.S. Senate, a process that often seems like a routine exercise in futility in recent years but it is our one last best hope of preventing this woman from being seated on the bench for the rest of her life and she is not a senior citizen.  Here’s why…

Cornelia Pillard is a rabidly pro-abortion judge who believes that there is a Constitutional right to abortion and freedom to kill one’s child without recourse or remorse.

In a recent article for CitizenLink, Kim Trobee quotes from the writings of Pillard: [Read more...]

Is AG Morrisey Doing “Irreparable Harm” to Women?

Common senseWest Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has said that a common sense regulation to consider for his state’s unregulated abortion industry is that doctors have admitting privileges at local hospitals so they can assist patients should something go wrong during the abortion procedure.

Is AG Morrisey doing “irreparable harm” to women seeking abortion by seeking such a requirement?

According to a judge ruling against the state of Wisconsin in a lawsuit brought by Planned Parenthood against a newly passed law requiring abortion clinic doctors to have admitting privileges the answer is: Yes!

A recent article on the sordid judgment says:

“Planned Parenthood sued in July to overturn the law, which requires abortionists to maintain admitting privileges at local hospitals in case women are injured during botched abortions. The abortion giant says the requirement would force two of the state’s abortion centers to close, because their abortionists don’t have admitting privileges, place an undue burden on women who would have to drive further to get an abortion.” [Read more...]

New Movie: “Evolution Vs. God” Makes Impact

Evangelist Ray Comfort has a new movie making quite an impact already. The movie, called “Evolution Vs. God” is powerful because it interviews only scientists that believe in Darwinian evolution. According to one article the evidence against evolution is so damaging as a result of these interviews that if it were a boxing match the refs would have ended the match and declared Intelligent Design the winner.

But Comfort makes an important statement that bears repeating. He says: “If there’s no God, and we’re merely primates then anything goes, homosexuality goes, lesbianism goes, fornication, adultery, pornography, and that’s why it’s so embraced by this generation.” I couldn’t agree more.

I would also say that if evolution is true then it becomes easy to kill unborn children because they are just a “product of conception” rather than a unique individual created by God. A secular humanist worldview founded on evolution is indeed an open door to sin because in the end we’re all just animals with no soul. Here’s hoping this movie shows the truth, that we are unique people, created by God, with an eternal soul worth defending and protecting. Click here for original article.

Pro-Abortion Activists Chant “Hail Satan”

As pro-life activists sing “Amazing Grace” outside the Texas legislature, pro-abortion activists chant “hail Satan.” the irony is profound. People who support life and want to defend it sing of God’s amazing grace while those who advocate killing unborn children pay homage to Satan. Jeremy Dys, president of the FPCWV has some insightful thoughts on this bizarre incident. And Joe Carter, writing at The Gospel Coalition shares some excellent thoughts from John Piper.

Needless to say, when the church of Satan distances itself from you and says you’re absurd for your chant, you know you’ve really hit the bottom. Such people deserve pity more than anything else. They are lost in darkness that not even Satan worshipers support. Watch the video below. If the video doesn’t appear automatically, please refresh your browser. Click here for original article.

Live Action: New Video Asks “What is Life?” (Powerful Video)

unborn babyHow would abortion rates change if Roe v. Wade was overturned? The perception seems to be that it would create a black market and numbers would surge. Realistically, that’s absurd. What Planned Parenthood knows and is desperately trying to market is access, because they know if there is an abortion clinic on every corner that women will use them. This fact is underscored by a recent study that concludes proximity to an abortion clinic makes a difference of whether or not a woman chooses to have an abortion.

After analyzing the data the researchers soon concluded that “if Roe were overturned and 31 states voted to make made abortion illegal, the national abortion rate would fall by 14.9 percent and the number of live births in the United States would increase by 4.2 percent.”

Perhaps this is why nearly every poll reveals that Americans are overwhelmingly pro-life. Yes, some who would say they are pro-life still want abortion access for cases of rape and incest; but the myth that most Americans want abortion on demand is crumbling around Planned Parenthood.

It’s a powerful blow against the abortion industry when a doctor that formerly did abortions is now a pro-life advocate willing to speak against this torturous procedure. Dr. Anthony Levatino is one such doctor that recently shared testimony with the members of Congress. In his statements he described in graphic detail exactly what takes place during a routine abortion. Some of his remarks are below, but use caution because they are graphic. [Read more...]

One Root of Evil is Centralized Power and Control

Stop AbortionTom Minnery, Senior Vice President, Government & Public Policy for Focus on the Family (Focus) recently editorialized in a newsletter that the demise of Indiana’s failed attempt to deny funding to Planned Parenthood may have solutions that on first examination may seem impossible.

As an example, Focus pointed to Texas as a model that other states would do well to mimic:

“When Texas passed a similar law, the Obama administration threatened to cut off its Medicaid funding entirely. But rather than cave to the pressure, the Lone Star State declared it would find a way to continue providing high-quality healthcare services to poor people on its own, rather than funnel more of taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars to groups dedicated to taking innocent life.”

The question, of course, is whether other states will follow the bold lead of Texas, as well as whether or not other states are in the position or have the fortitude to do so given the “fiscal crisis” many of them believe they are in.

The question citizens and particularly Christians must ask themselves is whether any state in our country can afford not to follow that lead.
