Abortion
 
What can be more disgusting than the lawful destruction of unborn children. Has Satan showed his true face and motives any clearer than this? The worst part is that people are fooled into thinking that abortion is alright. These unborn (but sometimes they are born first!) children do not get a choice of their own. Who will be their voice? Pro choice is probably the most hypocritical thing to fight for. It argues the freedom to choose, to take the freedom of the choice of a living human being.
Is it right for a mother to decide the death of her unborn child, and against the fathers will? And for what reason could she have to do so? Is there any good reason? To start we will learn a little about abortion and the procedures. Then we will take a look at both sides of the argument of those who stand for Pro life and those who stand for Pro choice. Finally we will take a look at scripture to show that abortion is in fact wrong in God's eyes, whether or not a government body makes it legal.
 

 
Some facts about abortion:
 
  • There have been more than 53 million abortions performed in the United States alone since 1973. This is not including the world
  • The number of American babies killed by abortion each year is roughly equal to the number of U.S. military deaths that have occurred in all of the wars that the United States has ever been involved in combined
  • Approximately 3,000 Americans lost their lives as a result of the destruction of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11.  Every single day, more than 3,000 American babies are killed by abortion.
  • One very shocking study found that 86 percent of all abortions are done for the sake of convenience.
  • One of my favorite facts is this: A Department of Homeland Security report that was released in January 2012 says that if you are “anti-abortion”, you are a potential terrorist.  Unfortunately, there have also been other government reports that have also identified “anti-abortion” protesters as potential threats. Of course, Satan always finds those who stick up for the weak and defenseless threatening.
  •  A while back one Philadelphia abortionist was charged with killing seven babies that were born alive, but witnesses claim that he actually slaughtered hundreds “of living, breathing newborn children by severing their spinal cords or slitting their necks.”
  • Some abortion clinics have been caught selling aborted baby parts to medical researchers.
  • Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once said the following….

    “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

  • Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions every single year.
  • Planned Parenthood received more than 487 million dollars from the federal government during 2010.
  • There are 30 Planned Parenthood executives that make more than $200,000 a year.  A few of them make more than $300,000 a year.
  • Less than 1% of abortions are done because of life threatening complications either to the mother or the baby.

 

 

Types of Abortion

 

Types within the First Trimester

 

In most cases, you will have a choice between medical or surgical abortion procedures during the first trimester. Medical abortions are only available up through nine weeks gestation. The types of abortion procedures performed during the first trimester are:

  • Methotrexate & Misoprostol (MTX): a medical abortion procedure used up to the first seven weeks of pregnancy. This medication combination is not as commonly used in the U.S. with the availability of mifepristone, which works more effectively for this use.
  • Mifepristone and Misoprostol: a medical abortion procedure used up to the first seven to nine weeks of pregnancy. It can also be referred to as RU-486, the abortion pill and Mifeprex.
  • Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA): a procedure used as early as 3 -12 weeks since the last period. Considered less invasive with only a local anesthesia being used on the cervix.
  • Aspiration: a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate pregnancy up to 16 weeks from the last period. It can also be referred to as suction curettage, dilation and curettage (D & C) or vacuum aspiration.

 

 

Types within the Second Trimester

 

Medication based abortion procedures are not an option during the second trimester. The types of abortion procedures performed during the second trimester are:

  • Dilation & Curettage (D & C): a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate a pregnancy up to 16 weeks gestation. It is also referred to as suction curettage or vacuum aspiration.
  • Dilation & Evacuation (D & E): a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate a pregnancy after 16 weeks gestation.
  • Induction Abortion: a rarely performed surgical procedure where salt water, urea, or potassium chloride is injected into the amniotic sac; prostaglandins are inserted into the vagina and pitocin is injected intravenously.

 

 

Types within the Third Trimester

 

Third trimester or late term abortions are not legal in a number of states except in certain medical situations. The time frame referred to as late term is often based on when a baby is considered “viable” ( meaning able to survive outside the womb). However, the point of “viability” is a grey area in many medical communities. Most medical communities establish 24 weeks gestation, the later part of the second trimester, as the earliest time of viable. Therefore, the availability of any procedure used in the third trimester is based on the laws of that state. The procedures that can be done in the third trimester include:

  • Induction Abortion: a rarely done surgical procedure where salt water, urea, or potassium chloride is injected into the amniotic sac; prostaglandins are inserted into the vagina and pitocin is injected intravenously.
  • Dilation and Extraction: a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate a pregnancy after 21 weeks of gestation. This procedure is also known as D & X, Intact D & X, Intrauterine Cranial Decompression and Partial Birth Abortion. *This procedure is now considered against the law in the U.S. according to the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 1995*

 

Even though the partial birth abortion is illegal in the USA now, does not mean that this does not still happen around the world. Just to understand what really happens (and used to happen in the USA) in a partial birth abortion, I have listed the procedure below.

Below that I have also listed the procedure for an Induction abortion, and a vacuum aspiration abortion. As far as "humane" goes in the abortion world these procedures do not seem humane or ethical in any way. In fact, they are terrifying to even try to imagine.

 

 

A partial birth abortion

1) Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s legs with forceps.

2) The baby’s leg is pulled out into the birth canal.

3) The abortionist delivers the baby’s entire body, except for the head.

4) The abortionist jams scissors into the baby’s skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull.

5) The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

 

 

An Induction Abortion

 

The Induction abortion takes 3-4 days to complete. On the first day the woman is given an ultrasound to determine the gestational age of her baby. Then, with the aid of the ultrasound to guide the abortionist, a lethal dose of the heart medication Digoxin is injected into the baby’s heart directly through the woman’s abdomen. Digoxin gives the baby a fatal heart attack. This is an off-label application of the drug, which was developed and approved as a treatment for heart disease

After the Digoxin injection, the woman’s cervix is packed with laminaria, thin tampon-like sticks made of seaweed that expand the cervix gradually over the next day.

The next day, the woman is repacked with larger laminaria sticks and given Misoprostol to prepare the woman for labor.

On the final day of the abortion, the woman is given the drug Oxytocin, which induces contractions and the onset of labor. Women then are placed in a room where they endure the labor process. When it is determined that the labor has progressed to the stage where the baby is about to be delivered, each woman is taken into a room with a toilet and told to lean on the nurse and push the baby into the toilet.

The toilet delivery method us used by a number of abortionists besides Tiller, including Florida abortionist James Pendergraft. Other abortionists may allow the woman to deliver on a delivery table. Still others; such as Michigan abortionist Alberto Hodari prefer to remove the dead baby through dismemberment.

 

 

Vacuum Aspiration

 

The vacuum aspiration procedure is quit simple, and is basically done with a suction tube that is stuck into the uterus and sucks the fetus out. The suction basically tears the fetus apart and this is what kills it.

 

  • As a final note to the types of abortions. Many people wonder if the baby can feel pain. At least one study indicates that babies can feel pain as young as 6-8 weeks.



Both sides of the Arguments

 

Now we will take a look at both sides of the argument. We will look at comments made by those who are for abortion, and those who are against abortion. Names will not be given for those who made the comments, except for the ones made by Barack Obama. Most of these are comments made on blogs and forums on the internet. First I will list those who are for abortion, or are pro choice.

 

 

 For Abortion

  • A Fetus is not a viable human tissue until the 24th week, therefore not a human being. Even then on the 24th week its chance of survival is only 50%.What I'm saying is that abortion should be available to women who are under the 24th week of pregnancy because the fetus is not viable and therefore not a human being, so you're not murdering anyone. My argument still stands and is still valid, please read some book on pregnancy.

 

 

  • “Somewhere there’s a woman who just received a new lease on life because of a screening that you provided that helped catch her cancer in time. Somewhere there’s a woman who’s breathing easier today because of the support and counseling she got at her local Planned Parenthood health clinic. Somewhere there’s a young woman starting a career who, because of you, is able to decide for herself when she wants to start a family.“

 

-Barack Obama-

 

  • “So every day, in every state, in ever center that Planned Parenthood operates, there are stories like those — lives you’ve saved, women you’ve empowered, families that you’ve strengthened. That’s why, no matter how great the challenge, no matter how fierce the opposition, if there’s one thing the past few years have shown, it’s that Planned Parenthood is not going anywhere. It’s not going anywhere today. It’s not going anywhere tomorrow.”

-Barack Obama-

 

According to the transcript, Obama concluded this last speech by thanking the organization and by invoking God: “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you. God bless America. Thank you.”

 

 

  • Becoming a mother made me realize just how difficult this “job” is, and how NO ONE should be forced into it against their will. Children are not meant to be a punishment in any way, shape or form. I wish abortions didn’t have to happen, but we live in a world that, sadly, makes them a necessary evil for many reasons. Women deserve the right to make their own decisions about their reproduction, along all steps of the way.

 

  • I just had an adoption. I was fully aware that sex could create a pregnancy, and since it was a breeze for me, why throw away a perfectly good baby? I am Pro-choice because I don’t want 14 year old girls trying to do it themselves out of desperation, not because I like abortion.

 

  • My pregnancy was actually what made me question my pro-choice beliefs. It was hard for me to reconcile abortion with seeing the sonograms of my children growing. But then I had them and I realized how hard this job is and how much everything I do affects the growth of children. No one should be forced into this job and every child should be wanted.

 

  • I’m always pro choice when it comes to everything. I never believed anyone ever had the right to tell anyone else what they should do, what they can and can’t say or how they should feel.

 

  • I have always been pro-choice since I was old enough to understand the issue, and was lucky enough in my life never to have experienced an unwanted pregnancy. Now, at the age of 35, I am pregnant for the first time and I whole-heartedly agree with the poster that no woman should be forced to be pregnant when she doesn’t want to be. I am 33 weeks along and this has been the most difficult thing I have ever done physically. It has taken a huge toll on my body and honestly has sucked big time. I hate being pregnant! I’m doing it because I am ready and want to be a mom, but if I were not ready and did not want to be a mom, being pregnant would be like constantly being tortured for nine months. Nausea, back pain, lack of sleep, heartburn, rib cage pain, shortness of breath, urinary tract infections, having to pee every 15 minutes, not to mention crazy mood swings(I don’t have to list the symptoms for all you moms out there — you know). Prior to being pregnant I was lucky to be one of the healthiest people I know. I never had any kind of sickness or symptoms and got used to living a healthy, happy life. Now it’s just one thing to deal with after another and pains in places I didn’t know existed. Ugh. And I haven’t even had anywhere near as bad a pregnancy as some women, but it has been REALLY really difficult, mentally and physically. Of course, abortion is not ideal — sex education and unwanted pregnancy prevention should be the focus, but for goodness sake, any woman who finds herself pregnant when she doesn’t want to be should be allowed to get out of it. Being pregnant is SO DIFFICULT no woman should have to do it unless she really wants to. Now that I have personal experience being pregnant I feel I have earned the right to say this, and I will always be pro-choice for myself and for my daughter.

 

 

 

 

 

Against Abortion

  • Have you heard the fines and jail time you'd receive in jail if your hurt an eagle egg? Is that egg an eagle yet? Is it only an eagle once it's born? If you break open the egg before it does, will is be likely to live? So why then must we charge people and put people in jail for hurting them? Those little children cannot defend themselves. But one day, they could become the person who discovers the cure for cancer, or is the next greatest composer. Even if you don't want to keep the baby, someone else might. We talk about the women's rights to her own body, what about the one inside of her? Doesn't that child have a right to life?

 

I just wanted to butt in and note the penalties for harming an eagle egg. I don't find this humorous at all but I just want to show that the government cares more about animal eggs than it does its children.

 

Penalties under the MBTA include a maximum of two years imprisonment and $250,000 fine for a felony conviction and six months imprisonment or $5,000 fine for a misdemenor conviction. Fines double if the violator is an organization rather than an individual.

 

Penalties for abortion? Nothing as long as you stay within the governments guidelines. In fact the government supports and helps fund it.

 

  • Not a viable human being? That makes you sound ridiculously uneducated. First of all why don't you define "life" for us all since you have such an extensive knowledge of this topic? While you process that I will go ahead and give you the scientific one: 1. Living things are highly organized. (Just so happens a fetus is even at conception) 2. All living things have an ability to acquire materials and energy. (Guess what? a fetus can do this too) 3. All living things have an ability to respond to their environment.(A fetus does this too) 4. All living things have an ability to reproduce. (The fetus has cells that are dividing and reproducing) 5. All living things have an ability to adapt. (Do I really need to say it?) * (Found in Basics of Biology and any other biology book you decide to open). Furthermore, nothing is added from the time of conception to the time that the baby is born. It has all its DNA and human chromosomes present. The fact that you can even think to say that because they can't survive on their own, the babies are automatically not viable humans makes you sound more like a monster than human. By that definition the 80 year old grandmother or even the 5 year old little boy who is on a feeding tube, oxygen, and other forms of life support aren't human. And to ask you an obvious question, what baby outside of the womb can actually survive on its own anyways?? Do you even know how far developed a baby is at 24 weeks? By that time the abortionist would have to crush their head in order to get the baby out of the birth canal and yes the baby would feel it because its brain is fully developed. This makes me absolutely sick. We are all about women's rights in this country so I am choosing to use mine by saying that this is murder and absolutely barbaric. How can you say that you are for abortion when you are already alive? You are blessed with your life and yet millions of babies don't get to choose that? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU & OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE PRO-CHOICE?

 

  • As I read this discussion, I can’t stop thinking about my youngest son. At 7 months old, he is so beautiful and full of life. Every time he smiles he lights up the room, and my life.During pregnancy, I remember looking up photos of fetal development on the web, wondering what my baby looked like. By week 10, he had well-formed arms, legs, fingers, and toes. The websites said he could move his limbs, open his mouth; he could even swim! They said his brain had been active for at least 6 weeks. By 10 weeks, he could respond to touch. The CDC says the average gestational age for abortion in the US is around 10 weeks. The most common abortion procedure at this stage is vacuum aspiration, where a tube is used to suck the fetus from the womb. The procedure kills the fetus by tearing it apart. When I think about this procedure, and then think about my son Christopher, it makes me shudder. It’s simply horrible to imagine him, or any child, going through an abortion. I hear that many women choose abortion because they think it’s the best solution to an unwanted pregnancy. If these women really understood what abortion does to their child, would they still make this choice? Which is worse- enduring an unwanted pregnancy, or living the rest of your life knowing that you aborted your own child? Multiple studies have linked abortion with clinical depression and worse. While many women don’t suffer a lot of ill-effects after an abortion, I can’t help but wonder if they simply block out the reality of what abortion did to their child. That’s not to say that every post-abortive woman is destined to suffer the rest of her life. I know some women who have found forgiveness and healing through their Christian faith. They love to hold my son and see him smile. Deep inside, they know that their child would have been just as beautiful.

 

  • The ONLY reason this carrys on is because the truth is censored. If these procedures were well known or well understood we would either have a society that did not tolerate this evil or and evil society that would be fine with (as in some countries) eating the aborted babies. They sell their canned brains in some places shamelessly and eat them BarB Qed like pork Chops. Censoring evil is what allows evil to be tolerated by good willed people who support evil ignorantly.

 

  • For a person who already believes abortion = the killing of innocent babies, it isn't comfortable to see these pictures. I was talking with a pro-life friend at work last week about the Gosnell trial and the dispicable things he has done. She complained that she didn't want to hear or think about it because it makes her grieve and feel concern over it. God grieves over it every time one of these precious little ones is butchered. What about that verse that says if we suffer with Him, we also will reign with Him? We don't want to know the gory details because the truth is, it makes us sick at heart just as it does God. But the truth is, people who don't know any better have bought into the lie that a baby is somehow a part of a woman's body and it is nothing to have it "aborted" (a less messier word for murdered) and they liken abortion to having their tonsils removed. If someone doesn't open their eyes to the ulgy truth about what happens during an abortion, they will never wake up and more and more babies will be butchered because of ignorance.

 

  • The following real dialogue between a high school student and a ‘Choice’ Chain activist captured by CBC’s The Current reveals how the dialogue tactic works:

Pro-Lifer: If I want to stand here and swing my arm, I have a right to do that, right?

Student: Sure.

 

Pro-Lifer: But what if I swing my arm to the point of hitting your friend in the face, would you agree with me that would be wrong?

 

Student: Ok, Yeah.

 

Pro-Lifer: It sounds like what you and I can agree on is if I do something with my body that hurts someone else’s body, you and I would agree I shouldn’t be allowed to do that. So, the question is, is this [pointing to a graphic image of an aborted baby] the woman’s body or is this the baby’s body?

 

During a CCRB pro life protest in front of a high school, a woman was interviewed briefly and asked if this seemed appropriate. This is what she said:

  • “Far from this being inappropriate, it’s most certainly appropriate because some of these kids are being driven to abortion clinics by their parents, by social workers, by friends. This information is very relevant because it’s reaching people at a time where they may be making the wrong choice and they need the right facts to dissuade them from making a deadly decision,” she said.

 

  • **The self interest of the religious right is sickening. If you can't see your own hypocrisy, then you need to take a good long look in the mirror and then go jump off a bridge. Believe me, you just might save lives.** Your post is a clear example of the evil that permeates the soul of unbelievers. To categorize people whose desire is to save the life of children from the forceps, scissors, scalpel, and toxic liquid the butchering abortionists use to snuff the life of defenseless children as "sickening" and "hypocritical", has got to be the ultimate example of a soul so mired in cruelty, darkness, and lacking in the most basic human qualities as to frighten and repel. Since your words are aimed at condemning 'the religious right', you must surely be someone whose ideas emanate from the murderous and conscience-devoid left.

 


 

Scripture Against Abortion

 

Just to start, God IS pro life. Of course He is! He made life. Many can argue the story about Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden, and how He gave them a choice when He put the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden with them. But the truth is He didn't give them a choice. He told them NOT to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And they DID obey until Eve believed a lie and was tricked. The same is for abortion. People are lied to and tricked into thinking that it is ok.


 

Exodus 20:13

 Thou shall not kill.

(I shouldn't even have to put any other scripture on here. This should be enough. That is what abortion is, its killing something that is alive. God said do not kill and that should be enough. Jesus taught that being angry with your brother is murder in your heart. How much more then the ignorant selfish decision to take a life for ones own comfort, security, and convenience.)

 


 

Psalm 127:3

"Truly children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward"

(A gift from God? Then many people must not like gifts from God. Jesus was a gift from God also, and the world aborted Him. Those who are for abortion may as well have been just like the Jewish leaders of Jesus' day. They were willing to kill an innocent human being because of their own selfishness.)


 

Psalm 139:13-16

13 For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
 

(God knew us before we were even born. Our very relationship with Him spans before we are even conceived. If God is conscious of us before we are conceived, then how much more do we exist during conception.)


 

 2 Kings 17:16-19

16 They forsook all the commands of the Lord their God and made for themselves two idols cast in the shape of calves, and an Asherah pole. They bowed down to all the starry hosts, and they worshiped Baal.17 They sacrificed their sons and daughters in the fire. They practiced divination and sought omens and sold themselves to do evil in the eyes of the Lord, arousing his anger.

18 So the Lord was very angry with Israel and removed them from his presence. Only the tribe of Judah was left,19 and even Judah did not keep the commands of the Lord their God. They followed the practices Israel had introduced.20 Therefore the Lord rejected all the people of Israel; he afflicted them and gave them into the hands of plunderers, until he thrust them from his presence.

(Giving into the practice of killing innocent children was a great downfall of Israel. It eventually led to their destruction and fall from God's grace. America and the rest of the world will also fall from God's grace if its governments and people do not turn from the evil that they commit. Israel sacrificed their children to false god's, America sacrifices its children for their own freedom from the burden of motherhood and many times against the father's will. )

 


 

Psalm 106:37-38

37 They sacrificed their sons
    and their daughters to false gods.
38 They shed innocent blood,
    the blood of their sons and daughters,
whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan,
    and the land was desecrated by their blood.

(The soil of the USA is also desecrated by the blood of its innocent children. In the end those who did what was evil will have to give account for their actions. God won't except an answer like, "But I wasn't ready to be a mother." or "I had my whole life and career ahead of me." or "I was too young." or "I was scared.")
