There are several states, sixteen I believe, that have ‘Women’s Right To Know Act’ in place. The law forbids the clinic to accept payment for an abortion for 48 hours and makes the abortionist give ‘informed consent’ about the abortion procedure, all options (adoption, etc.) and development of the preborn child including a sonogram.
“At least sixteen states currently have Women’s Right to Know laws in effect. Even in the face of orchestrated attacks by the abortion industry, courts in Michigan, Mississippi, North Dakota, South Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Utah have ruled these laws to be constitutional.
The United States Supreme Court, in the 1992 case Planned Parenthood v. Casey, upheld Pennsylvania’s Women’s Right to Know law. In that same year, the High Court also refused to review a lower court’s ruling in Barnes v. Moore, which found Mississippi’s Women’s Right to Know law constitutional.
Most recently, in February of 2003 the Supreme Court turned down a challenge to Indiana’s informed consent law by abortion providers.”
The law will require: a thorough and accurate description of the abortion procedure, physical and psychological risks, disclaimer telling the mother of actual gross profit of the procedure, adoption, medical assistance, liability of the father of the preborn child and development of the preborn child throughout pregnancy.
There was a blurb in the news recently about how many more teen pregnancies there are in the southern U.S. as apposed to the rest of the country. More than likely, that can be attributed to the Women’s Right To Know Act in place in most southern states. That means the law is working to save the preborn lives of children that don’t have a choice or voice. The law works!
– I’m still trying to figure out how abortion has anything to do with women’s health care. But if you read after all the Pro-choice sites, that seems to be the common denominator – the Big Lie. Even overseas abortion is tauted as a right and choice for women in third world countries for their own health care AND WE ARE PAYING FOR IT. But that’s for another post…
I am driven by grief for what seems like my entire life. It took a while to realize that I’m not depressed or anxious, but grief stricken. I grieve for so many things and events throughout my life, although I don’t feel that way all the time; you know, about a personal choice I should not have made OR ones made for me.
But I grieve for lost souls. I grieve for the backslider. I grieve for murdered babies that weren’t given a choice. I grieve over men and women that use their bodies with no thought of consequences. I grieve over generations of families that follow the same pattern over and over again. It’s like doing the same thing all the time and expecting different results. Even I’m smarter than that.
I look to Proverbs 15:13 – “A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.” My spirit feels broken and my heart is not merry – this is a day of grief for me and all the souls that are lost (or nearly) or not heard.
But I look to Jesus! It is because of Him that my heart will be merry again. He is the only answer to every question, ever. He died for me. It is His sacrifice that I have to remind myself of when there are days like this. What would Jesus do? Pray.
Isaiah 49:1 says …’The LORD has called Me from the womb; From the womb of My mother He has made mention of My name.’ We are all known since the beginning of time. No one is a mistake, there are no unwanted children. God knows them all.
There are times in my activist way of thinking that I forget Who I look to for strength and reason – Jesus Christ.
Luke 18:27 says …’The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.’ Theses are the words spoken by Jesus himself. Only He can fix what’s broken inside of you and me. Just when I feel completely lost and alone in the sins I have committed, I remember that Jesus died for me and Eva. If it weren’t for the Lord’s tender mercies, I don’t know how I wold have gotten through my transgressions – ONLY BY HIS GRACE AND MERCY.
Jesus loves ALL the children regardless if anyone else does.
I’m in my office listening to AFR radio (on the internet) and a question was asked about being completely against abortion. The caller that was asked this question is a professed minister. The minister said that abortion is only okay in the instance of rape, incest, blah blah. The host said, then you are not against abortion.
THANK YOU! Someone finally said it. Under NO circumstances can abortion be legal or performed regardless of the reason.
Rape is heinous. Incest is even worse. But MURDER is not acceptable.
Because of the rape and incest excuse, Roe v. Wade made it possible and legal to kill children up to full term pregnancy – and not just because of rape or incest, but mostly because the parent(s) learns of a disability such as Down Syndrome. I mean, can you imagine giving birth to a child, the doctor taking the baby out of your arms and killing it? Of course not, but it happens every day – it’s called partial birth abortion. And in some instances, the child is still alive (once out of the womb) and the parent(s) and doctor wait until the baby dies on it’s own. But that’s for another post.
Life is what we make it?
Yes and no. Think of it – God knowing you BEFORE you were born. When I was pregnant, I certainly did not know my child at all; what he would look like, his personality. But God knows us BEFORE we were in the womb! How huge is that? So, if He knows us before we were to be, then He has already mapped out what our ministry is for Him. The Bible says that He SANCTIFIED us before we were born! It’s so hard to comprehend. But rest assured, not only does he know who we are and what we will do but he has numbered every hair on our heads. Get this: He knows us and we were meant to be here. GOD DOES NOT MAKE MISTAKES. An occasional surprise, maybe, but no mistakes, I promise.
It’s time to get about the Father’s business!
