Molech

The Israelites were often tempted to worship the gods of the Canaanites and the surrounding nations.  One of those gods was called Molech or Moloch.  He required that his worshipers sacrifice their children to him.  Here is what Wikipedia says about him. Read the rest of this entry

Margaret Sanger

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Margaret Sanger

by Ken Ham

So who made these statements? “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it”; “Birth Control does not mean contraception indiscriminately practised (sic). It means the release and cultivation of the better elements in our society, and the gradual suppression, elimination and eventual extinction, of defective stocks—those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization.” Read the rest of this entry

The breath of life

Everyone knows that human life begins at conception.  A new person comes into existence, created in Gods image, with his unique DNA, with a God given plan for his life.  The new human isn’t yet able to survive on his own so he must spend the first nine months of existence in his mother’s womb.

Attacks on the family

by Abby Johnson: ProWoman, ProChild, ProLife

In the recent weeks, God has been telling me over and over again that Satan is waging a battle over our families. That is where we must fight. Read the rest of this entry

Praying about abortion

The battle against abortion is both political and spiritual.  We need to change laws so that unborn babies are protected, but we also need to pray for all who are involved in this activity.  We must pray that women who are considering abortion will receive the help they need to give birth to their child and support him after he is born.  We must pray that those who are involved in the business of providing abortions will recognize repent of their sin.  We must pray that all children will be allowed to be born.

Ending abortion is only the first step.  Jesus said that unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.  We must pray that those babies whose lives are saved by our efforts will go on to experience the second birth.

A pro-life atheist

Many pro-abortionists claim that the only motivation for opposing abortion is religion.  While it is true that most of the opposition to abortion comes from Christians, there are atheists and other secularists who are allied with us in this fight.  Here is part of an article that was published in World magazine.

Stay at home parents

by Abby Johnson: ProWoman, ProChild, ProLife

I want to take some time to affirm and commend stay at home parents.

I often get messages from stay at home moms that say, “What can I do to help the prolife movement? I feel like I need to do more.” Read the rest of this entry

Everyone has been talking about Michelle Williams after the Golden Globes. I said a couple things on Twitter, but honestly have been trying to get my thoughts together. This is really a very small piece of my entire thought. Read the rest of this entry

False labels

When we buy boxes and cans of products in the store we know what we are buying because of the labels on them.  We can rely on these labels to tell us what is in the containers because there are laws requiring that labels give accurate information.

But there are times when we can’t rely on labels.  Groups of people who are trying to promote some belief often give themselves names that don’t accurately show who they are.  One example of this is found in the debate about abortion.  Those who believe abortion is wrong and are trying to end it call themselves prolife.  Those who favor abortion and believe it should be permitted say they are prochoice.  How accurate are these labels?

Leaving the abortion industry

Leaving the abortion industry

by Abby Johnson: ProWoman, ProChild, ProLife

A few years ago, I received a call from an abortion clinic worker who wanted to leave her job. I spoke with her for a while. She talked about “evil” in the clinic. We talked about The Lord. She had grown up in church and wanted to reconnect with her faith. I went through the next steps, told her what we would need from her and what she could expect from us. Read the rest of this entry

Deathscorts

by Laura Fairhaven

Gospel Ministry at Preterm 11/22/19:

It was bittersweet to be back on the sidewalk after a three week absence due to illness. When I arrived, I noticed that there were three clinic escorts, a.k.a. deathscorts, who try to discourage mothers from coming to talk with us. Dale said they showed up the first week I was out and have been there since. Read the rest of this entry

Is the United States a Christian nation?

Is the Unites States a Christian nation?  The best way to answer that question is to look at what is happening in America and then compare that with what the Bible says.

In Roe v Wade the Supreme Court ruled that any woman who was pregnant had a right to end the pregnancy by aborting her baby.  The Bible calls children a blessing from God. Read the rest of this entry

Pro-choice

I am pro-life.  I believe that life is a gift given to each person and only God has the right to take that life from him.  A person who commits serious crimes such a murder may forfeit his right to life; if that happens it is permissible for the government to take that life from him.  Except in cases like that no human has the right to take the life of another human.

I am pro-choice.  I believe God has given all of us the power to make choices.  Sometimes we may make wrong choices that have tragic consequences but we are free to make those choices.

Because I am pro-life and pro-choice I am anti-abortion.  Abortion destroys an innocent life and prevents it from ever making any choices.  Unfortunately I can’t tell anyone I am pro-choice because that would give them a false idea of what I believe.  Advocates of abortion have stolen the “pro-choice” label and use it to indicate that someone is in favor of allowing abortion.  They say that pregnant women have the right to choose to end their pregnancies by killing their unborn child.  They deny that the child has any rights.

This isn’t the first time Satan has tried to suppress the truth be having his followers apply to themselves a name or label that rightfully belongs to those who support the truth.  There are false religions that call themselves by names that actually belong to Christians.   Identity theft

Saving social security

The social security system in the United States will soon face a financial crisis.  Retirees are living longer than they have in the past.  At one time there were 41 workers paying into the system for each retiree receiving benefits; there are now about 3 workers for each retiree.

One contributing factor to this trend is the legalization of abortion in the United States.  Since the Roe vs. Wade decision almost 60 million babies have been aborted. If they had been allowed to live many of them would now be working and paying into the social security system.  Ending abortion might not be enough to solve the system’s problems but it would certainly help.

Even if abortion were ended it would be almost 20 years before the effects would be felt.  But there is another way we can find more workers to support social security.  That is to encourage immigration and open our borders to refugees who have been forced to flee their homelands.  We should encourage these people to settle in the United States, find jobs, and begin paying social security.

There are a lot of public discussion of abortion and immigration but I don’t recall anyone discussing the affects of these topics on social security.  I have also heard a lot of discussion the the social security crisis but I don’t recall anyone suggesting changing the laws on abortion and immigration as possible solutions.  If our leaders realized how these subjects are interconnected they might find it easier to solve the problems connected with them.

Any American who cares about the welfare of our retirees should oppose abortion and support increased immigration but Christians have other reasons to do this.  I have made two posts in this blog about those reasons.

Life at Conception Act

Congress could end abortion without overturning Roe vs.Wade simply by passing a law stating that life begins at conception.  The authority to do this is contained within the decision itself.

Working from what the Supreme Court ruled in Roe, pro-life lawmakers can pass a Life at Conception Act and end abortion by using the Constitution instead of amending it.

A simple majority vote in both houses of Congress is all that is needed to pass a Life at Conception Act as opposed to the two-thirds required to add a Constitutional amendment.

When the Supreme Court handed down its now-infamous Roe v. Wade decision, it did so based on a new, previously undefined “right of privacy” which it “discovered” in so-called “emanations” of “penumbrae” of the Constitution.

Of course, as constitutional law it was a disaster. But never once did the Supreme Court declare abortion itself to be a Constitutional right.

Instead the Supreme Court said:

“We need not resolve the difficult question of when life begins . . . the judiciary at this point in the development of man’s knowledge, is not in a position to speculate as to the answer.”

Then the High Court made a key admission:

“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case [i.e. “Roe” who sought the abortion], of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] Amendment.”

That’s exactly what a Life at Conception Act would do.

When Barack Obama was president it would have done no good to pass such an act because it would almost certainly have been vetoed.  Now we have a president who is pro life and would probably sign it.  The passage of this act would be a pro life victory. Read the rest of this entry

Joni and Friends

In 1967 Joni Eareckson injured her back diving into shallow water and became a quadriplegic, unable to walk or use her hands.  It would seem that someone in this condition wouldn’t be able to accomplish much, but Joni has experiences a successful life and even heads an organization called Joni and Friends whose goal is to help disabled people to live a normal life and to share the gospel with them.

Life Without Limbs

Suppose a couple that was expecting a baby had a sonogram and found that their child would be born without arms of legs.  Many would say that they should abort the child because someone with these handicaps has no chance of living a happy or productive life.  Anyone who thinks this has obviously never heard of Nick Vujicic.  Here is what Wikipedia says about him.

Nicholas JamesNickVujicic (/ˈvɔɪ.ɪɪ/ voy-ich-ich;[note 1] Serbian: [ʋûjitʃitɕ]; born 4 December 1982[2][3]) is an Australian Christian evangelist and motivational speaker born with phocomelia,[4] a rare disorder characterized by the absence of legs and arms.

Vujicic was born in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, in 1982, to Dušanka and Borislav Vujičić, devout Serbian Orthodox emigrants from Yugoslavia.   He was born with phocomelia without some fully formed limbs.

Vujicic has two small and deformed feet, one of which he calls his “chicken drumstick” because of its shape.[7] Originally, he was born with the toes of that foot fused. An operation was performed to separate the toes so that he could use them as fingers to grab, turn a page, or perform other functions.[8] He has been able to use his foot to operate an electric wheelchair, a computer and a mobile phone. Vujicic notes that he had an “amazingly normal childhood”.

On 12 February 2012, Vujicic married Kanae Miyahara. The couple has two sons and live in Southern California.[14]

Ending abortion

One of the first commands God gave to Noah after he left the ark was one prohibiting murder.

And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man.
Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.
Genesis 9:5-6

In 1973, in the case of Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court ruled that in the United States one class of humans, unborn children, was not entitled to protection by the laws prohibiting murder.  Since that time 59,000,000 children have been murdered without their killers suffering any punishment.  This failure to uphold God’s law places our country in danger of divine intervention.

You shall not pollute the land in which you live, for blood pollutes the land, and no atonement can be made for the land for the blood that is shed in it, except by the blood of the one who shed it.
Numbers 35:33
