Tell Me…

Tell me how any of my precious babes ruined my life because I didn’t go to college and don’t have a career. Tell me which one of my kids I should have started choosing abortion once life got more challenging. Tell me which one was an accident, a consequence, a mistake. Tell me.

No?

Then why are we telling women this while they are pregnant? Why in the hell are we telling women that they are missing out on life when they find themselves pregnant? Why are we telling them that these babies are just tissue inside of their womb? Why are we telling women that it would be better to end the life of that child than to face the inevitable horror of being their parent (or choosing adoption).

I’m a better person than I once was because of the lessons I’ve learned as a parent. Has it been work? Has it been tiring? Has it been challenging? Has it been the hardest thing I’ve done at times? I’ll tell you.

Yes. 

But there is such a beauty in seeing life through the eyes of a little one. There is such beauty in seeing myself through the eyes of my child. Giving up everything for my child wasn’t as tragic a sacrifice as people claim because in giving up one thing, I said yes to another – and it was the greatest treasure that no job, amount of money, no relationship, no current crisis could take away from or add to.

You not only end the life of your child when you choose abortion, you end the life of a beautiful part of you that you will never know when you choose abortion.

There is nothing more precious than the gift of a child – not only for the life they’ll lead, but for the life you will lead with them in it.

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.” Psalm 127:3

“…There’s Grace for Abortions…”

As people who know me already are aware, I am deeply saddened by abortion. With all the petitions out there for defunding Planned Parenthood for their criminal activity, I feel this is too important to slip through without being said (more than once!). For anyone who has had an abortion and/or knows someone who’s had an abortion, there is no condemnation for those who seek to receive the grace of the Father.

I pray we all stay soft and tender to the hearts of those who’ve dealt with this as we stand for life. We stand for the lives of those who have already repented and grieved their decision and their unborn babe(s). We also stand for the lives of the doctors and counselors who’ve yet to realize the truth of what they are doing, and we stand for the lives of the women who are aborting their babies for their own personal reasons who’ve yet to understand the gravity of that decision. God is bigger than all of our past choices and meets us where we’re at – even meeting us with blood on our hands. There is grace and love available for all who seek to obey our Lord, Jesus Christ, as we “go, and from now on sin no more.” May God grant us all repentance and free us from the bondage of our sins.

Dear Sister, There's Grace for Abortions

 

Please keep talking about what’s happening inside Planned Parenthood. Their criminal activity should not continue to be funded by our taxpayer dollars. How can we support gender selected abortions, covering up child sexual abuse (of which I have my own experience, with Planned Parenthood), aiding human sex trafficking of minors and prostitutes, as well as harvesting the organs of aborted babies and selling them? How is Planned Parenthood upholding the law and helping to protect our children? We don’t need Planned Parenthood! There are thousands of community health centers located throughout the US that offer the same and more than what Planned Parenthood offers that actually follow the law and care about the health and safety of women and children:

PP National Map FINAL-page-001

Planned Parenthood is corrupt. I don’t support abortion and would like it to be illegal because of the reality of what is happening – living babies who are aware are being torn limb from limb and getting their brains sucked out of their skulls, are being poisoned, or are burned to death… and many are surviving and being left to die alone in steel dishes, trash cans, etc. However, even if abortion is kept legal, Planned Parenthood should not be allowed to stay open (or at the very least, should not be funded by the taxpayer dollars so those of us who are opposed to their illegal activities and abortion are no longer financing such atrocities). #defundplannedparenthood

Gianna Jessen

“Gianna Jessen does not quit. Giving up is not an option to her. Gianna has what she refers to as the “gift” of Cerebral Palsy. She weighed a mere 2 lbs at birth and the doctors said she would never be able to hold up her head, sit up, crawl or walk. She began to walk by the age of three years old with the help of leg braces and a walker.

Gianna doesn’t believe that her Cerebral Palsy takes away her life, but, rather, enriches it. . . she walks with a slight limp today and runs marathons. On April 30, 2005 she completed her first 26.2 mile marathon after running just over 7 hours and was presented with the coveted blank blank award! On April 23, 2006 she completed the London Marathon as well. She is now determined to run marathons all over the place, because she was never supposed to even walk!

Gianna understands the plight of orphans, being one herself. She was placed into the foster care system early on in life, eventually being taken into the loving home of a woman named Penny. Penny has been a mother to 56 foster children in her life. Gianna was later adopted by Penny’s daughter, making Penny Gianna’s grandmother. According to Gianna, Penny saved her life.

Gianna is a Christian. Her life was given to her by the grace of God. She shouldn’t be walking, but more miraculous still; she should not even be alive. Gianna’s biological mother was 17 when she had a saline abortion in her third trimester. Many Americans don’t realize it is legal to have an abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. After being burned alive for approximately 18 hours in the womb from the saline solution, Gianna was delivered alive in a Los Angeles County abortion clinic. Her medical records state, “born during saline abortion”…this is what caused her Cerebral Palsy.

Gianna’s travels and experiences have led her all over the world. Her life has been covered by many major news media outlets, including, most recently, the BBC News and World Radio, Sky News, and The Good Morning Show in England, reaching many people with a message of hope and conviction. In November 2005, Gianna spoke in several colleges all over Ireland and in December of the same year, spoke at a meeting held at the House of Commons in London. She has returned to England this year to speak in several parochial and public high schools. Gianna’s audiences include: churches – church youth crusades and women’s ministry retreats; various corporations as a motivational speaker; secular and Christian youth organizations and schools – middle school age through college, as well as several times before Congress – most recently having her testimony read before the Supreme Court in Carhart v. Gonzales”

Gianna Jessen’s biographyhttp://www.giannajessen.com/EPK/bio.html

37 years ago, the Supreme Court decision was made that a woman had the right to her own body. What about Gianna Jessen’s right to hers? What about the rights of the women who survived their own abortions and were not given aid? What about the women who were burned alive, suffocated, dismembered, had their brains crushed, and so on? What about their rights to their own bodies? What about the men? Aren’t we equal?

The problem with our nation, isn’t the babies or “accidental pregnancies.” No the problem lies with this people who have gotten to this place of self-righteousness, worldly success, selfishness, arrogance, and greed – that they don’t want babies unless it’s “convenient.” The problem lies with the closed eyes because it IS too hard to even read what is ACTUALLY being done and it SHOULD be! The problem lies with the parents failing to take responsibility in raising their children up in the way of the Lord so they feel enough love from God and their parents that they don’t reach out for cheap thrills. The problem lies with the boys who’ve turned into men that don’t know how to love a woman because they have not been taught or trained respect and the women who don’t respect men because they’ve never been taught or trained that they themselves are worthy of love. The problem lies with the women who are more concerned with a career than the future of their children. The problem lies with the father who is afraid of responsibility and abandons their young children. The problem lies with the fact that MEN don’t have a right to their OWN CHILD while in the womb yet they are EXPECTED to step up once the child is BORN. The problem lies with the mindset that women are so freakin’ great that the life of a child doesn’t matter.

BUT IT DOES! That child’s life MATTERS!!!

We have become a rebellious nation, kicking and screaming against the guidelines of God like toddlers as if it’s nothing – but OPEN YOUR EYES at the world we live in!! Look at the rise in rate of acceptance for divorce, abortion, homosexuality, promiscuity, rebellion, and dishonor for parents as if these things are just a natural part of what life is! These things have become more acceptable because of our rejection of God’s Truth and ultimately the rejection of Christ.

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truth—men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.” 2 Timothy 3:1-9

“When they sin against you—for there is no one who does not sin—and you become angry with them and give them over to the enemy, who takes them captive to his own land, far away or near; and if they have a change of heart in the land where they are held captive, and repent and plead with you in the land of their conquerors and say, ‘We have sinned, we have done wrong, we have acted wickedly’; and if they turn back to you with all their heart and soul in the land of their enemies who took them captive, and pray to you toward the land you gave their fathers, toward the city you have chosen and the temple I have built for your Name; then from heaven, your dwelling place, hear their prayer and their plea, and uphold their cause. And forgive your people, who have sinned against you; forgive all the offenses they have committed against you, and cause their conquerors to show them mercy; for they are your people and your inheritance, whom you brought out of Egypt, out of that iron-smelting furnace.” 1 Kings 8:46-51

“Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.” 1 Peter 2:11-12

Near His Heart…

“But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.” Genesis 2:18, 21-22

Commentator, Matthew Henry states, “That the woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved.”

How much more so should we cherish our babies who are fashioned at the very center of our being.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:12-16

“From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God.” Psalm 22:10

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart…” Jeremiah 1:5

Choosing abortion is choosing to destroy what God has created.

Man Pleads Guilty to Murder Charge

“Posted: Nov 18, 2009 7:52 PM EST
Updated: Nov 18, 2009 8:32 PM EST

Amarillo, TX – A Roswell man has pleaded no contest to six felony charges, including second-degree murder, in the death and dismemberment of a New Mexico woman.

Allen Dale Bruce entered his plea Monday. Leatha Ann Tidwell’s body was discovered under a camper shell covering her pickup in Clovis.

Bruce was driving that truck when he was pulled over for speeding in Parmer County last spring. The vehicle was towed to Clovis and that’s where the discovery was made.

Prosecutors say Bruce hit Tidwell over the head with an axe and then chopped her body into pieces. Bruce faces 25 years in prison.”

From KFDA TV News Channel 10http://www.newschannel10.com/Global/story.asp?S=11533362

Sounds gruesome doesn’t it? Anyone would read this story and be a bit shaken at how a man could ever do such a thing to another human being.

Now, imagine a hollow tube with a knife-edged tip (kind of sounds like a miniature axe), but imagine it as a vacuum (29 times more powerful than a household vacuum). what could such a thing do to a person? What could such a thing do to a baby?

Hard to imagine? This very instrument is used in what’s called, the “suction method” of abortion and is used to tear a 12 week old gestating baby (aka fetus) and placenta into small pieces and sucked into a bottle and is discarded.

At this same time, another method used is called “dilation and curettage” where they’ll use a hook shaped knife and cut the baby into pieces and then scrape it out and discard it.

During these 12 weeks the baby’s eyes have begun forming and hair is apparent. They suck their thumb, can do somersaults, jumps and can squint to close out light. They can frown, swallow and move their tongue. They have all their toes, their heart is beating, and their spinal cord is well into its development.

It should be hard to read this. I hope you won’t stop though. This is too important for you to close your eyes to because such practices as above and below are being condoned by law to take place to unborn children.

Aging up to 18 weeks, the “dilation and evacuation” method may be used. This involves a pair of forceps and its teeth twist and tear the bones of the unborn child. It continues until the baby is completely dismembered and removed. The spine and skull must be snapped and crushed in order to remove them.

Salt poisoning is used after 16 weeks (four months). A needle injects the poison into the baby’s sac and the baby swallows the fluid and is poisoned also having the outer layer of skin burned off. After over an hour the baby will die and within 24 hours labor will occur and the mother will give birth to her dead or dying child (many cases under this method have been born alive and either left alone to die or have been rescued and later adopted).

Another method includes cutting the baby’s umbilical cord while in the womb, allowing the baby to suffocate to death (he/she is not yet born so the law suggests that they are not an “actual person”… this is then “humane”) where they will either remain until death or will be delivered by c-section and left alone in a corner of the room to die from neglect or exposure.

While yet another method, called, “Partial Birth Abortion,” is done anytime after 30 weeks. The baby is pulled from the birth canal by it’s legs and is completely delivered except for their head (if the head is delivered, they are considered “born” and as such would constitute murder charges if the following method were used at such a time). Scissors are jammed into the baby’s skull and opened to enlarge it. At this point the brains of the child are sucked out causing the skull to collapse and is removed and discarded.

Summary of above “abortion” methods:

Mutilation, deformation, mangling, torture, violent, premeditated, destruction, maliciously ending the life of.

All of these words are also in the definition of MURDER: (1-) To kill with premediated malice; to kill (a human being) willfully, deliberately, and unlawfully. (2 -) To destroy; to put an end to. (3 -) To mutilate, spoil, or deform, as if with malice or cruelty; to mangle

What does “abort” mean? “To miscarry; to bring forth young prematurely” (Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary – 1913 + 1928).

To kill doesn’t necessarily mean any more than the deprivation of life. A killing can be accidental or done in defense with no chargeable fault. To murder is to kill with malicious forethought and intention. “Abortion” as we may believe it to be is not abortion at all. It is MURDER. There is nothing humane about how these children’s lives are being taken.

The lives of these unborn babies are of no insignificance and have their great value and purpose for life. No woman’s personal choices, traumatic experiences, health, nor circumstance holds a value of higher importance than the life of these precious little ones. Yet because they have no voice to be heard, no words to speak, no strength to take a stand – millions of these innocent, blameless, pure, undefiled souls are being murdered every year, thousands upon thousands in a given day.

Margaret Sanger – Famed Founder of Planned Parenthood

*Stalin saw to the slaughter of at least fifteen million Russian and Ukrainian kulaks; Mussolini massacred as many as four million Ethiopians, two million Eritreans, and a million Serbs, Croats, and Albanians; and Hitler exterminated more than six million Jews, two million Slavs, and a million Poles. Margaret Sanger, the foundress of Planned Parenthood, and the impassioned heroine of various feminist causes célèbres, was responsible for the brutal elimination of more than thirty million children in the United States and as many as two and a half billion worldwide.

Information above is from “A Complete Online Biography of Margaret Sanger” Publication 1995 – http://www.entrewave.com/freebooks/docs/39ba_47e.htm

*Margaret Sanger aligned herself with the eugenicists whose ideology prevailed in the early 20th century. Eugenicists strongly espoused racial supremacy and “purity,” particularly of the “Aryan” race. Eugenicists hoped to purify the bloodlines and improve the race by encouraging the “fit” to reproduce and the “unfit” to restrict their reproduction. They sought to contain the “inferior” races through segregation, sterilization, birth control and abortion.

Information above is from “The Negro Project: Margaret Sanger’s Eugenic Plan for Black Americans” – http://www.cwfa.org/articledisplay.asp?id=1466&department=CWA&categoryid=life

*Margaret Sanger admitted to neglecting one of her children who died of pneumonia at age four. Indeed, she always acknowledged that she wasn’t right for family life, admitting she was not a “fit person for love or home or children or anything which needs attention or consideration.”
