2019_02 23 Day of mourning

DAY OF MOURNING: Pro-lifers are encouraged to wear black and refrain from shopping today (Saturday, 2/23) for a National Day of Mourning for abortion.

DEFUNDING PP: Yesterday, President Trump finalized an administrative rule that would partially defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business and deprive it of as much as $60 million in taxpayer dollars.

Title X funds are supposed to be used to help low-income women and men receive birth control, cancer screenings and other health care services. While the tax money cannot be used to pay for abortions, it indirectly funds Planned Parenthood’s vast abortion business by paying for facilities and staff which are used for aborting the unborn.

The new rule would prevent this by requiring businesses like Planned Parenthood completely separate their abortion businesses from their taxpayer-funded services. That means housing their family planning services in separate buildings with separate staff from their abortion businesses and a denial of funds if they fail to do so.

Most Planned Parenthood entities are not expected to comply.

THIRD TRIMESTER ABORTION: Perfectly healthy baby boy – New undercover video catches abortion center planning to abort healthy 32-week-old baby.

DOCUMENTARY: “A Closer Look at the Chemical Abortion Pill” [21:27] – I had no idea. A study in Finland showed the chemical abortion pill caused FOUR TIMES the complications than surgical abortion. These complications can include a fatal infection. “Me, alone, afraid, and feeling like I was going to give birth to death.” “Chemical abortion is a chemical coat hanger.”

THE “CHRISTIAN” ABORTIONIST: Dr. Willie Parker calls himself a “Christian abortion doctor” who does “the Lord’s work.” Sir, you may be doing young lord’s work, but that “god” is not Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of the Living God, who will judge you when all is said and done.

Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and abort the unborn in your name?

“And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” – Matthew 7:15-16, 18-19, 21-23 (slightly edited)

LABELS: Chelsea Clinton says, “I refuse to refer to the anti-choice movement as anything other than anti-choice.” That’s fine, dear. I refuse to refer to the pro-choice movement as anything other than pro-abortion.

ARKANSAS: Governor signs bill – If … no, WHEN … Roe v. Wade is over-turned, Arkansas will be an abortion-free state.

UTAH: On Friday, the Utah House passed a bill that, if approved by the Senate and signed by the governor, would protect preborn children with Down syndrome from being aborted for the condition. The bill was approved by a vote of 54 to 15.

VERMONT: The Vermont House passed a radical pro-abortion bill Thursday that would keep abortions legal and unrestricted for basically any reason up to birth. The Democrat-majority body voted overwhelmingly in favor with a 106-36 vote. Lawmakers also rejected 12 amendments that would have allowed some minor, common-sense abortion regulations, including parental notification for minors and counseling. Vermont prohibits the death penalty for convicted criminals. Innocent unborn, pain-capable, DNA-unique, fully viable, babies … not so much.

  1. Don’t remember if I passed this along the other day or not. I think not. FWIW

    A bill that would classify abortion as murder in Oklahoma law apparently will not be heard in the state Legislature.… Committee Chairman Sen. Jason Smalley, a Republican…, [said] he opposes abortion, but does not want the bill to go forward because he believes it is likely to be ruled unconstitutional.…

    When I chirped up about this a few days ago, about “when does life begin,” this is the kind of battle of words I had in mind. Dueling semantics.

    We all know it’s not so easy to correct folks’ entrenched ideas. Often, the best path is to just reinforce what you find in someone’s beliefs that’s true; let their own reinforced light naturally drive out the errors.

    Like that, the Great Debate questions when “life” begins; when legal respect of “personhood” begins and how that is weighed against a woman’s rights; and, the main matter for believers, when is a being of potential eternal spiritual status initiated. Dark and complicated quibbling.

    Yet, luminously, all the moral, legal, and philosophical musings become moot with true planned parenthood (if you’ll excuse the appellation appropriation): where a couple understands sex and consequences at the outset, and works to make a home for their children, as part of a society that encourages abstinence until marriage, and supports joyous family life.

    Not the world’s most original insight. Just sayin’. 😕

      Not original, no. But Godly and right.

      Re: When “a being of potential eternal spiritual status initiated” — I used to just go with, “We don’t know, so we better err on the side of caution and say conception.”

      Then, I read/heard a homily asking, “Was there ever a single moment when Jesus was not fully human and fully God?”

      Wow. What a thought. I mean … Mary conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, so how COULD there have been a single nanosecond when the human parts of Jesus were “just a blob of tissue”?

      It didn’t change my position of life issues one whit, but it sure did give me a lot of theological depths to ponder.
