First I want to say that I am thankful for Maddi’s decision to keep her baby. I would hope that in a Christian home this would be the case but we all know that it has not always turned out this way. The fact that this young lady will graduate high school and soon after give birth to her first child is a credit to her faith. I rejoice that the tiny life inside her will not be subjected to torture and death.
But the real issue here is not the fact that Maddi chose life.
The Obama administration barred states from withholding federal funding from Planned Parenthood with a rule issued by the Department of Health and Human Services in December of 2016, just a few weeks before Obama left office. This is not terribly surprising, as Obama stands as the most pro-abortion president in American history.
But in his first few weeks in office, President Donald Trump has already made a pro-life impact with several actions, which, according to a recent article include:
For some people, the abortion issue is complicated. There’s the line, some extensions of the line, the grey areas, and the loopholes. Very few people, despite what you might hear from the media, support abortion on demand through an entire pregnancy. Far more people support abortion restrictions as a pregnancy progresses later in the term.
For a larger percentage of the population abortion is filled with what-ifs and lines to be crossed. Someone might claim to be pro-life but support abortion in the case of rape. That’s not a pro-life position. That’s supporting abortion. If abortion is morally wrong, and it is, then it’s always wrong. The circumstances for the conception of a child don’t change the reality that killing a living human being is wrong. Supporting abortion the case of rape then, is also wrong.
In this very short video clip, Dr. Paul Roth of the University of New Mexico Health Science Center admits that students at a summer camp dissected aborted baby brains.
The clip shows Dr. Roth admitting on camera that a faculty member obtained and used fetal brains in one of the summer workshops. Specifically, he states:
“Yes, we had a faculty member who obtained some tissue, and during one of these summer workshops, uh, dissected I think one or two fetal brains.”
A recent article on this deviant incident says that a House Select Panel has sent a letter to the New Mexico Attorney General recommending that the University of New Mexico and the supplier of the baby brains be charged with violating state and federal laws. The article states:
Planned Parenthood wants to keep women from seeing an ultra-sound of their baby before they make a final decision to have an abortion.
Nope, that’s not a false statement. That statement comes right out of an article reporting on events taking place in Indiana. A recent article reports:
An odd irony I’ve often wondered about is the various definitions of life employed by our culture. It would seem that the definition of life is fixed: if you’re alive, you’re alive. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. The most glaring example of this is seen in discussions of finding life on planet Mars.
Scientists are hoping to find life on Mars. And by life they mean any simple, single-celled organism they can deem alive. However, many of these same scientists would look at an unborn child with all of it’s millions of cells and beating heart, and refuse to admit that it is a living human being. It takes some philosophical gymnastics to arrive at that conclusion.
A new music video by a Christian hip-hop artist addresses this very hypocrisy.
Dove Award winning artist Je’Kob recently released the video for his song “Life On mars,” which discusses the definition of life. (The video is posted below.)
In the video, Je’Kob addresses the idea that bacteria found on Mars is considered “life” while a baby inside the womb is not given this protected status. He sings:
“Don’t let them find one organism, & got the nerve to call that life,
“Yet they say that my baby’s not alive until it lives outside my wife
“Why are we looking for life on Mars
“When don’t respect life on our Planet Earth, Planet Earth, Planet Earth.”
Watch the video below and share it on social media.
I thought it was going to be another relaxing Sunday afternoon. I enjoy our family rest day as we go to church together then gather at my parents’ house for lunch. Then we get to rest for the remainder of the day and enjoy family time as we prepare for our week. It’s my favorite day of the week.
But this Sunday would turn out to be very different.
Few outside of our families knew that my wife was pregnant. This was our fourth child and we didn’t see a need to make a big deal of it. Besides, there is a lot going on with our family and we had little time for much else. So besides our families not many people were even aware she was about 11 weeks along.
Well, we thought she was 11 weeks along.
The chart below shows exactly what various body parts are being sold for to procurement companies. These companies are contacted by interested parties seeking to buy aborted baby body parts, the company then goes to an abortion clinic to harvest the parts and sells them to the interested party, according to a recent article.
So what is a brain worth? What is a liver or pancreas or leg worth? The chart shows what was charged for specific parts along with the quantity harvested by one company. The reality that unborn children are being killed and their bodies are being sold for parts is horrifying. What kind of society accepts and promotes this behavior as good?
If you like seeing baby animals, you will love the photos that National Geographic producer Peter Chinn has created using 3D ultrasound, computer graphics, and small cameras. (Pictures below the break)
The images are possibly unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. As they reveal details of these baby animals that most people never get to see in real life. The elephant, Cheetah, and Polar Bears are stunning. The last image in particular is amazing for its clarity and detail.
It occurs to me that any person viewing these images will immediately admit that these are living creatures. Furthermore, most people would be quick to say that we need to do everything in our power to protect and defend these unborn animals. We support laws against cruelty; laws against illegal killing; and laws to ensure they are protected from the time they are in the womb to the time they die naturally. What I’m unclear about is how anyone could make such an admission regarding these animals and then support killing an unborn human baby. What exactly is the difference?
Take a moment and look at these incredible pictures below and allow yourself to marvel at the miracle of life.
