Protecting Life

November 23, 2019

I wrote earlier this week about recent victories for the radical abortion movement, like the court victory for those seeking to silence, punish and destroy the undercover reporters who exposed Planned Parenthood’s barbaric practices (that story is far from over; the appeal is already underway and it needed to get away from that shockingly biased judge.)

But there are more headlines that should give pause to anyone who cares about protecting life.

Pennsylvania’s Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed a bill barring the abortion of babies just because they have Down syndrome, or as that used to be called, eugenics.

California’s Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from a Catholic missionary organization of a state law forcing them to provide coverage for elective abortions under their health insurance. The law defines elective abortions as “medically necessary,” even though actual doctors agree that abortion is almost never “medically necessary,” and certainly not elective abortions.

New York just passed another pro-abortion law that includes forcing all employers to distribute information on how to obtain abortions with no exemptions for religious organizations that oppose abortion, despite it being almost certainly unconstitutional.

Pete Buttigieg, who is actually leading in some polls now, displayed both his radical abortion views and his Biblical illiteracy by once again insisting that the Bible says life doesn’t start until you draw your first breath.

And while I assume you didn’t watch the Democratic debate, I assure you that abortion was mentioned.  In fact, Elizabeth Warren declared that abortion rights are “economic rights” and “human rights” (the right to kill a human is a human right, got it?) And while she refused to say whether she thinks there is no room in the Party for anyone who isn’t pro-abortion, she signaled it pretty strongly by saying, “I have made clear what I think the Democratic Party stands for.”  Yes, you certainly have.

https://www.christianheadlines.com/contributors/michael-foust/abortion-rights-are-human-rights-elizabeth-warren-says-at-5th-democratic-debate.html

I don’t list all these stories to depress you, but to show the urgency of redoubling efforts at fighting back against the relentless campaign to use government, media and pop culture to normalize the culture of death and paint abortion as a moral “good.”  It starts with removing God and the Bible from public discourse, so there is no absolute moral authority.  Then government replaces moral authority.  Whatever cause the government seeks to promote (“protecting the Earth,” "reproductive justice" or whatever) then becomes the justification for claiming that whatever advances it must be the moral thing to do. 

But if it’s advancing all these wonderful “progressive” ideas, what could be the harm?  There’s a new documentary called “One Child Nation” that illustrates it in shocking detail.  It’s about China’s ban on having more than one child.  It began by replacing God with the state as the source of morality.  Then the state declared that fighting overpopulation was a moral good. By the time it was over, it had resulted in unspeakable cruelty and brutality, including a genocide that slaughtered millions of baby girls in the womb.

At this link, Laura Hollis at Townhall describes what happened in China under the cloak of government-imposed “morality.” I warn you, it's very disturbing. It’s frightening not only for what happened there, but for how much it sounds exactly like what’s happening here.

    This is THE reason I am a Trumpster. I will vote for Trump no matter what the left accuses him of or what nonsense he tweets. He stands for life. Period. Anywhere in the world and any time. I love that about him. Don’t get me wrong, I do think he does other things that are good, but it’s because he stands for life that I stand with him.

    Only one has the right of life and death and that is God. This is the same as someone holding a gun to a head and pulling the trigger. You would be arrested for this and what ever happened to the Hippocratic Oath that Doctors are suppose to live by? Is this just a myth in these new days of killing babies because I don't want to be bothered. There are just too many ways to keep from getting pregnant to begin with.

    The abortion issue just makes me sick I am not a woman and the women have rights to healthful living and care of their bodies with that being said our Creator blessed women with the child birth option he didn't want this to be a curse. Some women didn't get that opportunity thats why adoption was created. If women and men don't don't want the blessing of childbirth then 2 things; abstain from the chance of pregnancy or protect yourselves from childbirth both women and men, we are NOT dogs, and that does not include murder. yea the vile people the devil controls presents problems and the people with disease all present problems. We can solve most problems without murder.

    All life is sacred and if you have an abortion that is not to save your life as the mother or you perform an abortion you will go to HELL.

    I applaud the priest a few weeks ago who refused to offer Vice President Biden communion on the grounds of supporting the democratic (or should I say demonic) platform on abortion. The Catholic church is very pro life in it's policies. Perhaps this policy of denial should be extended to every democrat receiving their Holy Sacraments whether Catholic, Protestant or Jewish by putting their politics above God, their faith and beliefs.
    Our governor here in New Mexico attended a Catholic girls school while growing up yet signed one of the worst abortion bills in our country. I guess she was asleep in class when they were teaching the doctrine of the Catholic church and it as one being pro life and anti abortion.

    How can a political party get so full of hate for life as the Democrat party has gotten? They champion killing babies, turning children against their own God given genders and promote lawlessness in every form. This is not what America was founded on and was not meant to be. It is like all the evil people in the world got together an said if we take over the Democrat Party we can some day rule the world. That day is closer than we ever imagined today as they are going full speed ahead to push their anti-human policies an laws on the very people who only want t65o live in a just an peaceful country an word. Look at the democratic party closely and ask yourself "what policy or law they have enacted that didn't turn out to be harmful to everyone. Everyone of them have gone directly against everything this Country was founded on and now they have open the gates to barbarians who never made it out of the 7th century. This shows how much the Democrat party has degenerated to the very lowest level of humanity.

    I really feel sorry for these people who believe that abortion is an acceptable thing to do. If they really believe they are hurting me or anyone like me that believes it is murder I am afraid they are gravely mistaken. One day they will kneel before God and His Son Jesus and it will too late for arguments or discussions about choice or the fetus not being a baby. When you try to tell God what is right or wrong I am afraid you have made a poor decision.

    I am 100% Pro-Life in every sense of the word. Life begins at conception, not when you hear the first heartbeat. Science and the Bible has proven that!! Like it or not, God caused the sperm and the egg to connect through His miracle of a couple copulating to conceive a baby, whether it's the old-fashioned way, in a test tube or a surrogate. and God should play every part in the process of having a baby but Atheists and Agnostics argue that point, so putting Christianity aside - morality and a conscience should weigh in on the decision of having a baby because every child has a right to live, no matter how the baby is conceived. Science has proven that every baby is a human being at CONCEPTION not at the first heartbeat. It is not tissue, a blob, a zygote or anything else, it is a human being. It is murder when someone kills a human being even an unborn baby as the unborn baby is alive unless it dies on it's own in the womb or is aborted by a doctor. A woman should be charged with murder and brought to trial if she PURPOSELY aborts her baby. Being raped or a victim of incest are no reasons for abortions. It is NEVER a baby's fault if the mother is raped or a victim of incest and a baby should not have to die over it. It always amazes me how Pro-Choice people advocate abortions yet they never think about their own Mother maybe making the decision to abort them. If they were never born they wouldn't be out there advocating for abortions would they? A baby is innocent and has no part in the creation of its existence. In the case of the mother's life being in danger, that only happens in less than 1% of women and should the life of the mother be truly threatened then that should be a decision among the Mother, the FATHER, her Obstetrician and GOD and in all cases if the Father is unknown or absent, every attempt should be made to find him if possible as he is responsible for the baby as well as the Mother and by law make him responsible for the baby. The decision cannot be left to the woman alone as another living human being (the baby) is involved APART FROM THE MOTHER - the baby is a separate human being from the Mother, because if that were not true, then the Mother would die with the baby when she aborts it in every case, not just when things go wrong. As for those who use abortion as contraception, these women should think about the consequences before they put themselves in a situation to cause the creation of a baby, especially because they don't use contraception and that is pure irresponsibility when they don't, unless, If by chance they are allergic to contraceptives, then by all means women should have their tubes tied if they don't want babies or if their careers mean more than a baby, really these women should have complete hysterectomies. A woman should always be prepared to prevent pregnancy even if there is a remote chance she is going to have sex. There is no excuse for not being prepared. Sex doesn't just happen and if it did, a woman should be well prepared way in advance for just those times. If a woman believes a baby going to ruin her life, common sense says to do every thing possible to prevent pregnancy to begin with!! I don't understand why that is so hard. Things happen, I get that, but when those things happen it does NOT give a woman the right to kill her baby. She does not own her body, GOD CREATED HER and owns her body and her baby's body!! A woman did not conceive herself! A man and a woman was involved in conceiving a Mother with God's help and it's the same when a baby is conceived, whether it's from a man and woman having sex, or if it's in a test tube or a surrogate. Nothing changes those facts. Humans cannot be conceived on their own or by themselves and can only be created by God allowing it. A few months of inconvenience and a few hours of labor is a small price to pay to allow a baby to live. Nobody says a woman has to keep her baby, she can put it up for adoption instead of killing it. The pain of abortion vs. the pain of labor is about the same and so is the recovery. Roe v Wade needs to be overturned. The argument about back alley coat-hanger abortions is moot. Crazy women do them all the time anyway if they can't afford an abortion. Women should be arrested for that too, for mutilating their bodies, attempted murder of themselves and murder of their unborn baby. The argument of Mothers being charged with murder due to spontaneous aborted babies is moot as well, because we cannot help what nature does and doctors know the difference, so undue panic is caused there from the misinformed and uneducated scare tactics of the left. When (not if) Roe v Wade is overturned, I am sure provisions will be made on every type of spontaneous abortions there are as well as to protect the Mother's life. Provisions should not be made on rape or incest cases because those are not anyone's fault and the babies can live and thrive. Spontaneous aborted babies, the babies are usually already dead in the womb or stillborn during labor through no fault of the Mother. Roe v Wade was passed on a lie, so any law that is passed on a lie needs to taken off the books as soon as the lie is exposed without question and certainly should not have to be heard before the Supreme Court!! Before she died, Norma McCorvey the one who caused Roe v Wade to be made into a law, told she was never raped and stated she told the lie to get the law passed. It should have been overturned right then and there. Again to reiterate, this law should have been abolished as soon as she made that statement and as I said, it should not even have to go to the Supreme Court to be taken off the books. How can we have laws based on a lie? So much for our judicial system right?

    As a former registered nurse who spent many years working in the delivery room,I cannot understand how anyone can condone abortion.To see a child come into this world and then murder it is a crime,or it should be.Life starts at conception!!! I Believe the reason there is so much crime and savage behavior in our nation today is because of the total disregard for human life that we are witnessing on a daily basis.Wake up America.Don't for one minute believe that the killing of human life can be justified by any excuse from an elected official.What punishment we don't receive in this life will be awaiting us in the next.

    I believe that the Dems are using Biden as a Patsy. They know he can't win against Trump, but if he is running for President, then Trump cannot investigate him and Hunter. If he wasn't running, then his family, and the rest of the swamp, would be fair game to investigate all the corruption. Just me humble opinion.

    No one likes abortions - but...birth control fails. Parents decide they can't afford another child. Clinton's " safe, legal, and rare " seems at least lucid. You can't stop them - women with means will throw down their wallets and travel to countries where they can still get abortions. I'd like to see a timeline, wherein an abortion needs to take place by ( pick a date ) 20 weeks ? Pregnant women should be able to make up their minds by then.

    I am the father of a daughter with Down Syndrome. My wife is a genetically balanced career; our chance of having a Down child is 33%. Access to abortion services allowed us to have a second child knowing how difficult it was going to be to secure essential social services from the Republican dominated Commonwealth of Virginia government. Our second child and his first child are also genetically balanced carriers of Down Syndrome. Access to abortion services will permit both to have children without the risk

    It certainly looks as if many are in a hurry to not only go to hell, but to be in the worst part of hell.
    The names of so many people don't even sound like an American name, and I can't help but wonder where these people came from. Those who are for all the wrong things, and lie like dogs don't even look sane . Many have wide open eyes that look completely wild. Where did the old America go, and what happened to change the hearts of so many? There never was a time when all of America was Christian, but most feared God,and weren't hell bent on trying to replace God.
    May God have mercy on those of us who want God,and want Him to protect us from evil.

    We should make a score card showing Democrats and Republicans positions on many subjects. Top of the list would be abortion, especially late term third trimester, as in the Virginia model.
    Other positions gun rights , jobs, taxes, immigration, illegal immigration (there is a difference) etc
    Thanks for keeping us informed with facts

    Beloved man of God, to your statement, "It starts with replacing God and the Bible from public discourse so there is no absolute MORAL authority," I say amen and amen and amen ...and, if you have read my comments, you know that, what you state has been the cry of my own heart....HOWEVER..the timing of my reading your statement was also received BY me as a hug from heaven...BECAUSE...

    Only minutes BEFORE I read TODAY'S newsletter, I went back to read yesterday's newsletter and saw where you had printed, IN that newsletter, a less than complimentary comment you had received from a woman by the name of Betsy and what was your response TO it.....AND, my inner response... ABOUT Betsy's accusations to my Lord ..was "the mockery that Christians make of YOUR love is never ending!" ...And I said that Betsy was guilty OF that mockery for several reasons!!!!!!

    One, while accusing you of "disgracing yourself as a Christian", SHE was the one who was disgracing HERSELF as a Christian because Jesus said the "fruit" that would identify one as BEING a Christian was His unconditional agape love and her posture toward you was hateful!.. Two, her accusations that you lie were NOT true and, therefore, SHE was the one who was guilty of lying!

    Three, my next thought was that she....unlike yourself... had no real knowing of God's heart...OR mind....and how you were viewing these impeachment hearings THROUGH the lens OF HIS heart, and mind!.....AND THEN MY THOUGHT WAS...

    How can ANY Christian not be righteously outraged by a man who...in the name of violating our Constitutional laws....has wanted to impeach the President from the day his President was elected ..violating God's law to love him because his
    unfounded DESIRE was being authored by his hatred for the President!!!.......IN ADDITION, I then went on to ask how anyone who claims to be a Christian cannot also be righteously outraged by a man who supports killing God's unborn children and same sex marriage!...AND...

    BY so supporting these sins that GOD say are an abomination, this man, Adam Schiff...along with his "party"...is calling GOD a liar because, BY supporting these things GOD says is "wrong" he is saying they are NOT wrong!

    This Betsy is spiritually blind to the fact that you spend hours and hours of your time TO uncover truthful facts ABOUT this political nightmare BECAUSE you won't lie and because, AS a Christian, you are called....BY God...to take a stand AGAINST a man...and political party....that CALLS God a liar!

    It was these reflective thoughts AFTER I read Betsy comments that enabled me to receive what you wrote in THIS newsletter as God's confirmation to me that I shared HIS grief over the spiritual lack of discernment that authored Betsy's accusations against you!!!

    AND Betsy does not have a clue to the kind of grief that is yours BECAUSE you are viewing the EVIL hateful...insane political situation USING what IS His "absolute MORAL authority" !!!!!

    The spirit of anti-christ is resident in unregenerated man, the flesh life. Satan is alive and well on the planet earth and can land anywhere our sin nature, flesh life, is not regenerated or surrendered to Jesus Christ. Jesus came to untwist our view of God & Man & Our Lives, Satan only twists Gods heart, character, & nature.

    But God....the long war against God has continued since at least The Garden. What we are seeing in the USA is a full manifestation of this war. Satan's minions stirring the pot on many fronts, influencing anti-christ philosophies for centuries, and full throttle since the 1960's. (Wonder what's going on in education?) But God...

    God gave The Revelation of Jesus Christ to John on the Island of Patmos to speak to the spiritual battle for every generation, the Alpha & Omega presiding. It's a wonderful ending with Promise.

    This article is a Call to War to the Church and for the lost. As Reinhart Bonnke likes to say about his ministry, "Robbing hell to populate Heaven". Exactly what we are to be about.

    I absolutely do not believe in abortion. It is absolutely true that a woman has rights over her body and life, but when she participates in sexual acts and conceives life, it changes from just her body to another person's body and life. She has no right to choose for that baby. That human being now exists and should be given the freedom to be who they are meant to be. If she does not want to conceive and produce life, then she needs to exercise her rights to her own body mind-set to eliminate the possibility of conception in the first place by preventing her body of conceiving another person and then choosing to take that person's life.
