Both houses of the North Dakota state legislature have passed a personhood amendment that will be placed on the 2014 general ballot. The amendment states that human life begins at conception and that from that moment on is protected under the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution which states:

“Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

Abortion is the first time in the history of what we call the civil rights movement that a class of human beings LOST rights. The unborn were persons under the law until the Supreme Court suddenly discovered that, oops, unborn Americans were not persons, but property. Kinda like black slaves used to be just property, not persons. The North Dakota amendment is the first sign I’ve seen that this might be getting rolled back. It’s way past time.

Warning: Disturbing content below: An Aborted Baby Dies A Violent Painful Death (Truth # 2) [6:28]

I had 7 amniocentesis procedures during my third pregnancy. Every time I went for another one, my unborn baby would become agitated. During the sixth amnio, she moved around so much, the doctor had to remove the needle and try again twice for fear she’d hit my daughter, who was thrashing around in my womb. I was very sore afterwards from being punctured so often! When I went in for the seventh, my daughter began thrashing before I even got into my gown. I think she had learned to associate the strong antiseptic smell of the office with that intrusive object violating her sanctuary. This time, I had a different, wiser doctor. He had an assistant push down on my womb to shift my daughter to a safe distance before plunging the needle in, so I only had one stick that time. Please understand: At no time was my daughter actually touched by that needle! All they did was stick it into the sac, suck out 10 ccs of amniotic fluid and pull it back out. Yet she clearly resented it enough to learn what sounds and smells (tastes?) meant it was going to be coming at her again.

Locusts like horses

Yesterday morning, I read about the Fifth Trumpet of Revelation (Rev 9:1-12). Yesterday evening, Dearest and I watched “Operation: Thunderbolt” about the 1976 rescue of Israelis being held hostage by Palestinian terrorists at Entebbe airport in Uganda.

When the movie showed the four C-130s preparing to take off on their rescue mission, the noise they made reminded me of my Bible reading, so I paused the movie to look it up and read it to Dearest. We both agreed; if you consider that John had never seen an airplane, C-130s are a darn good fit for the “locusts” he described.

The appearance of the locusts was like that of horses ready for battle. On their heads they wore what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, and they had hair like women’s hair. Their teeth were like lions’ teeth, and they had chests like iron breastplates. The sound of their wings was like the sound of many horse-drawn chariots racing into battle. They had tails like scorpions, with stingers; with their tails they had power to harm people for five months.

C-130s drop cargo out the back. A cargo of some form of biological weapon would fit the description.

P.S., Today, we watched “Operation Thunderbolt: The Documentary”, which rounded out the human drama of the story with more information. We hadn’t realized the commander of the mission was Bibi Netanyahu’s brother or that the hostages returned to Israel on our bicentennial, July 4, 1976. Netflix has both on DVD; look for the 1977 production date on them. There is a third choice that Netflix commenters say is nowhere near as good, so I skipped it.

About that Second Amendment thing

Liberal Second Amendment

After Jim Carrey tweeted some rudeness to gun rights advocates (the usual, “you don’t care about the children!” b.s.), Adam Baldwin tweeted this back:

Adam Baldwin ‏@adamsbaldwin – #AnswerTheQuestionJim: @JimCarrey, what is your interpretation of Federalist #46 & SCOTUS’ D.C. v. Heller & McDonald v. Chicago decisions?

Being too iggerant to recognize any of the above, I googled. In case any of y’all are equally clueless (my brother can ignore this blog), here’s the short version.

District of Columbia v. Heller (2008)

The Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home and within federal enclaves. The decision did not address the question of whether the Second Amendment extends beyond federal enclaves to the states.

McDonald v. Chicago (2010)

The Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to keep and bear arms for self-defense, regardless of what any local governments may decide.

Federalist No. 46

“The Influence of the State and Federal Governments Compared”, an essay by James Madison (writing as Publius) published in 1788. It examines the relative strength of the state and federal governments under the proposed United States Constitution. Among other things, he wrote that a national military force need not be feared when a very much larger number of private citizens are armed and ready to fight for their liberty.
