— by Dennis Mallon with words from “Seeing Red over abortion” by Lila Rose
In an article (Seeing red over abortion by Lila Rose) in the Washington Times dated Sept. 16, 2013 there were some revealing statements by one pro-abortion political activists—Sen. Wendy Davis of Texas. She is a good example how ones radical ideology about the sacredness of life can be so apparent.
Namely, her support for late-term abortions and her willingness to filibuster for abortion rights, all the while, claiming “I don’t know what happened in the Kermit Gosnell case” (Kermit Gosnell being the abortionist convicted of severing born infant’s spines). I guess she was not interested in seeing or reading anything about how he killed babies.
Ms. Davis’ statement is telling, not just for her, but for many “pro-choice” people in our country. The way they talk about abortion shows a fundamental ignorance or a calculated desire to deviate from the truth. I’m inclined to believe the later.
Ms. Davis is lauded as a champion of women’s rights, and a champion of the misused words “pro-choice.”
Davis became a media star on mainstream news networks such as ABC, CBS and NBC who have ignored the truth about abortion.
She claims she doesn’t know—like at 20 weeks in the womb, how a baby can hear and recognize its mother’s voice, and how the baby is starting to kick and feel pain.
We Americans need to look down deep and answer that question. With Kermit Gosnell, Wendy Davis and scandal-ridden Planned Parenthood in the news, it’s time for us to have an honest discussion on the reality of abortion; namely, what this procedure truly does to a unique human person in his or her mothers womb.
Who has the God given power to determine when the fetus becomes a baby? But there are those who think they have the power—judges, pro-abortion people and organizations like Planned Parenthood.
Now, with that in mind, the question comes up, when did the fetus become a baby? Where exactly in the period of 9 months was the baby a fetus or a fetus a baby? Was it 20 weeks in the womb as some have indicated, because it has been determined that at that time the baby first feels pain. Who can say with any conviction the day, time or second that occurs?
Note: A fetus is one of the many stages the baby goes through before it is born, i.e., the first stage being an embryo.
If there is any one who knows the mind of God when the fetus became a baby, please come forward. Those who don’t believe that God created man please go backward in time and ask themselves why was I born?
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry described on several occasions how a pre-born child “might turn into a human” and how what determines human life is “not science” but rather “the feeling of the parents.”
Medical technology has established that the pre-born child is a human being. And, under Common Law, unborn children are still considered to exist for property transfer purposes. Media members though, ignore the evidence. Are you and I just property?
The Associated Press and The New York Times have referred to babies born alive as “fetuses”—a critical error, since once a fetus emerges from the womb, he or she is, by definition, an infant, for whom all but the most hard-core abortion advocates, like Planned Parenthood, acknowledge as a human right.
Let’s look at the pregnancy of a woman—the sacred gift that God has given to a woman for His continuation of the human race. Let us use our common since, common knowledge and the senses we have: hearing, sight, smell, touch, taste, equilibrium and intuitive insight, and the moral sense to know what God has intended.
Let use start at the beginning of a pregnancy …
- First of all a young woman’s conscience and moral sense tells her she may get pregnant if she lies with any man. If she is married and a God fearing person it is a natural and holy act. The words of the Lord come to mind, “Let the children come to me.”
- The woman’s conscience and moral sense questions, “do I want to have a baby?” Or, does the pleasure of the act overrule the morality of conceiving?If having the pleasure of the act is all that comes to her mind then, the moral sense of preventing a pregnancy may come up.
- About eight months before the the baby is born the woman’s senses tells her she is pregnant or like my father used to say, “She is fragrant.” No truer words could be said, for the conception and birth of a child of God emanates a fragrance of Heaven.
- Some time before the baby is born the woman’s touch, taste, equilibrium and intuitive insight tells her she is really pregnant (five months in the womb the baby can hear and recognize her mothers’ voice). Medical technology has established—the pre-born child is a human being.
- A few weeks before her delivery the doctor can hear and feel the baby’s heart beat.
- A few days before the baby is born? The woman’s feels the baby kick inside her womb.
- A few hours before the baby is born her she knows she may go into labor soon.
- A few hours/minutes before the baby is born? The woman really knows she is in labor.
- In the matter of minutes/seconds she delivers the baby into the doctors arms. The baby’s eyes are shut, moving, screaming and thinking “What Happened.” The mother is hearing, seeing, smelling and touching her baby.
Now, if we go back before the baby is born and in the womb of the mother, is it a fetus or a baby? Some would say it is a fetus. Call it what you want, it’s still a baby—Common Sense. If it is a fetus like some would say, when did it become a baby in such a few seconds, minutes, hours, days or months? Mind you, there are some who believe like (Rep. Barbara Boxer, D.), “When you bring it home. . .”
You are only playing GOD when you say (for-what-ever-reason), “20 weeks,” whatever, or when you say, God forbid, “When you get it home.”
To make judgements about when the baby becomes a baby is to play God. Any one who says it’s ok to terminate a fetus or a baby at a particular time during a pregnancy is playing God.
If there are judges who decide that a mortal person’s decision has precedence over God’s; then we have judges who are not of God but judges of the material world. Case in point: the Roe vs. Wade. 7-2 decision . The 7 judges, who gave women the right to kill their babies, were more like materialistic pagans living in a world of indifference.
For some reason, the big opinion-makers refuse to come to terms with the truth of abortion. Consequently, they avoid covering the issue at all when they can, ensuring that the people who watch their channels or read their paper remain uninformed. When this is impossible, the language they use to describe the abortion issue is mind-boggling. It is a complete detachment from reality.
We can’t afford to be ignorant anymore.
For our own lives and for the sake of our children, it’s time to put an end to our abortion blindness and, its deadly impact on American culture and the “war on women.”
I have added my own remarks to part of the article “Seeing Red over abortion” by Lila Rose, Washington Times Sept. 16, 2013
Lila Rose is the president and founder of Live Action
SANCTITY OF LIFE ACT PETITION
Whereas: Article III, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution gives Congress the power to strip federal courts of jurisdiction over abortion,
Whereas: The Supreme Court has grossly misinterpreted the U.S. Constitution and judicially fabricated laws that have condemned more than 56 million innocent babies to death,
Whereas: The federal courts of our nation have fanatically struck down every meaningful attempt to put reasonable regulations on abortion to protect the health and safety of the mother, the child, and unwed minors,
Whereas: Recent discoveries in medicine, biology and genetics have scientifically reinforced the truth that life begins at conception,
Whereas: We can no longer trust something so precious and important as the right to life to Federal Courts, who have proven that they will ignore the law to fabricate a false right to abortion on demand with no exceptions;
Therefore: I urge you to cosponsor and vote in favor of the Sanctity of Life Act, which would use Congress’ power in Article III, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution to strip the federal courts of jurisdiction over abortion and declare that life begins in the moment of conception.
Preview of comments made:
The trouble with Roe vs. Wade is The public data and the historical information that justice Blackmun relied on in his majority opinion were often incorrect, incomplete or misleading. His primary source was a series of articles written by Cyril Means, the general counsel to the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL).
Public health research purportedly showed that abortion was safer than childbirth. Much of the time was devoted to oral arguments on procedural and jurisdictional questions, very little time spent on constitutional justification for a right to an abortion.
Academic research shows that avocation is linked to an increase risk of breast cancer and higher incidence of various psychological problems.
Recently as of 1980’s only 13% of the children of moderately mothers where born outside marriage, according to the Research from National Marring Project. Today it is 44%
53% of babies born to women under age of 30 are non marital: experiencing family dissolution, instability and pathology.
High school dropouts are unlikely to marry and are cohabiting couples with a higher breakup rate.
