I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (Psa 139:14) My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. (Psa 139:15) Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. (Psa 139:16)

I’ve been doing a study on the use of birth control pills. I was reading how some versions of “the pill” prevented the egg from implantation into the uterus and how sometimes the egg has already been fertilized. This began to bother me so I did the study. Not because I need to convince myself that life begins when the egg is fertilized, but because some Christians don’t seem to know when life begins. God’s Word is the only tool we should use to convince ourselves as well as others. Man’s opinions are many, but God’s Word should be final to the believer.

I noticed in God’s Word that He refers to man’s “seed.” I often wondered why God chose the same word for plant seeds as man’s seeds. I researched the plant seed and when the seed comes to life (germination). This quote was taken from www.fastplants.org:

Germination is the awakening of a seed (embryo) from a resting state. It involves the harnessing of energy stored within the seed and is activated by components in the environment. Growth represents increase in size, number and complexity of plant cells and organs. Environment and genetics play fundamental roles in regulating growth. The energy for growth comes from photosynthesis

As you can see, a plant’s seed life cycle is no different from the human’s seed life cycle. We can almost take the same quote and replace germination with fertilization, etc. In fact, let’s try that:

Fertilization is the awakening of the embryo from a resting state. It involves the harnessing of energy stored within the seed and is activated by components in the mother’s body. Growth represents increase in size, number and complexity of the fetus’ cells and organs. Environment and genetics play fundamental roles in regulating growth. The energy for growth comes from within the mother.

As you can see, I did not have to change much in that quote to convert it to a human seed definition. I have said all of this to make the following points. Please bear with me.

Christians today believe that taking birth control pills is a “private and personal” matter. They believe that the fertilized egg is not yet alive since science says the heart begins to beat at the earliest at 12 weeks. These same Christians back this belief with Leviticus 17:11 which says that life of the flesh is in blood. Therefore the Christian believes the fetus’ life does not begin until at least 12 weeks because that is when the heart begins to pump blood. Let’s pick that apart a bit.

I think we can all agree that NO cell can reproduce if it is a dead cell. Ovulation usually takes place in the middle of a woman’s cycle. The egg can only be fertilized at this time. If the egg is fertilized, it will travel to the uterus and implant into the uterus. The woman will then miss her cycle and begin to suspect pregnancy. By the time she has missed her cycle, the egg has been growing for about a week or so.

If the egg is not fertilized, the egg is released with her next cycle. As well, if the egg is fertilized but the cells within it die, whether prior to implanation or afterwards, a miscarriage occurs. It stands to reason that the fetus does not continue to grow if the cells have died.

With that said, how then, can these same cells separate, divide and reproduce prior to 12 weeks prior to when the heart begins to beat if they are not alive? These same living cells are conducting “business as usual” prior to the heart even beginning to beat. This is science, plain and simple. One cannot refute this scientific fact. But does God’s Word state the same facts? Should the Christian depend on science to know when life begins? Or should the Christian depend on God’s Word to guide and direct in this area?

What then does God’s Word have to say about when life begins? Psalm 139:16 states that God’s eyes see our substance, yet being unperfect. The Greek word for unperfect is H1564 golem meaning unformed mass. The verse goes on to say that the members are written in Heaven when as yet they had no form. Each of our members are written in heaven. God has recorded in Heaven whether this baby’s index finger will have a freckle on it or not or whether his big toe will curl in like its father. According to the Word, this fetus continually grows until birth.

Read the end of verse 16: when as yet there was none of them. Is God referring to the egg prior to fertilization here? I don’t think so. This surely sounds like a fetus in its early stages having no form yet – no feet or hands – no heart or heart beat. When as yet there was none of what? Of them – the members! God’s Word says that He has written in heaven everything about this fetus even when the members were not formed – even the heart! If God did not regard a fetus at conception through 12 weeks as a living soul, this verse would not be in the Word as it would be in direct contradiction.

God’s ways and thoughts are not the same as ours. The knowledge of man and his science are taken as law amongst God’s own. Just because man says that life does not begin until the fetus is at least 12 weeks does not mean that it is so according to God. God’s Word says that His thoughts are not the same as man’s. In fact, God wants to make it so perfectly clear that He emphasizes it by stating it twice, one right after the other! For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. (Isa 55:8) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isa 55:9)

Some Christians will probably read this and say, “Well, what about the other 50% of the time where the egg is not fertilized?” OK, this is true … but can you pick the time? How can you be sure that in the time one takes the birth control pill that an egg won’t be fertilized at least once? Christian, are you willing to keep this baby from implantation into the mother’s uterus? Are you willing to take the chance of losing a living soul that God has given you? That baby’s members are written in heaven. That baby, yet unformed, is seen by God. That baby’s cells started splitting and duplicating and separating the day the egg was fertilized. The day that egg was fertilized, life began because cells started separating and forming.

I pray that as Christians read this, they will realize that science has deceived the Christian into believing their agenda of convenient conception. Science conveniently can say that a cell is alive when it is splitting but then contradicts itself by saying that a fetus can be aborted because it has not been born yet. The “conservative” Christian says that the fetus IS alive but only when the heart begins to beat. But science and God come together and agree that when a cell begins to split, it is alive. It’s not often that the Word and the world’s science agree but they do agree on this point. Why then does the Christian say the fetus isn’t alive prior to the heart beating? Please, Christian, won’t you study the Word for yourself? I pray my study encourages you to get into the Word and study for yourself.

God’s Word says Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. (Psa 139:16)

The Mayo Clinic is probably one of the most reknown medical facilities in the world. I was on their website today and the Lord truly blessed me with the research. I am a firm believer that any baby is a human life even at the point of conception. However, for those of you who support abortion, I plead with you to look at this logically.

According to the Mayo Clinic, during the week after fertilization, the blastocyst (fertilized egg) attaches itself to the uterine wall. This marks the week where the embryonic period begins and this is:

“when the baby’s brain, spinal cord, heart and other organ begin to form. Your baby is now 1/25 of an inch long. (emphasis mine)

Notice how Mayo Clinic calls this embryo a baby? It’s so convenient for the world to have abortions when they are told that this embryo or fetus is not “really” a human life. However, what does the word of God say?

The Scripture says that the life of flesh is in the blood. (Lev 17:11a) For the life of the flesh is in the blood: When does blood actually begin to flow during the gestation period? According to the Mayo Clinic,

Week 5: Baby’s heart begins to beat – Your baby at week five (three weeks after conception)
——————————————————————————–
At week five, your baby is 1/17 of an inch long — about the size of the tip of a pen.

This week, your baby’s heart and circulatory system are taking shape. Your baby’s blood vessels will complete a circuit, and his or her heart will begin to beat. Although you won’t be able to hear it yet, the motion of your baby’s beating heart may be detected with an ultrasound exam.

With these changes, blood circulation begins — making the circulatory system the first functioning organ system. (emphasis mine)

I have emphasized the word “baby” throughout this quote from Mayo Clinic’s website to show you that even they consider this to be a baby. Did the Mayo Clinic really mean to call this a baby or was it convenient?

When it is inconvenient (for those proponents of abortion), this baby is considered a fetus. To the woman guilty of desiring an abortion, this detaches her from any emotional tie to her baby. She views this as a choice and not a baby. The Bible says that life begins with the blood of all flesh – even the Mayo Clinic says that this baby’s (this “life”) circulatory system and heart are now working! Thus we have a living, human life form – a precious and beautiful baby!

What do you do with this? Of course, if you want to justify your sin of murder, you would say that you do not believe the Bible. You would further say that there is no God. (Psa 53:1) [To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, A Psalm of David.] The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

(Psa 10:13) Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it. The murderer will be required to pay for the spilt blood of an aborted child. God said, (Exo 20:13) Thou shalt not kill. It will be required of you to pay for this sin, my friend. (Exo 21:12) He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death. Murder is the killing of human life. Life begins with the beating heart, therefore, it stands to reason that this life ceases when the heart stops beating.

This baby is surely considered a living being according to God’s word. But if you need the world’s opinion, the Mayo Clinic states that this baby’s heart is beating and its brain is functioning. Ironically, the world states that when the heart and brain stop functioning, a human life has died. Why then can’t the world reverse this thought process and say that life actually began with the brain and heart functioning? They cannot because that would mean that they have allowed legalized murder and they are guilty themselves of murder! As of this date (June 2011), New York City has a 70% abortion rate, according to the CDC. Each mother and father that has agreed to an abortion is a murderer. Each doctor and nurse who has participated in abortions is guilty of murder!

The life is in the blood – The Mayo Clinic has unknowingly agreed with the Word of God. How ironic. My friend, if you have had an abortion, I ask that you write to me. The Lord Jesus is ready to forgive you of your sins and you can be born again in newness of life. (John 3:3, 2 Corinthians 5:17)

If you are contemplating an abortion, won’t you wait? Please write to me! Let me show you what God’s Word has to say. If you are under conviction, praise the Lord God Almighty. It is not too late to be born again! Today is the day! Won’t you come to Jesus now, repent of your sin and be saved? (Mat 11:28 ) Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.


~Exodus 21:22-23 If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,

The Sixth Commandment is “Thou Shalt Not Kill.” Today’s judicial system has totally missed the mark when it comes to abortion. They do not see that a baby inside the womb is a human being! Today’s opening verse spelled out the Law a little further but yet mankind has managed to eliminate this portion of the Law to follow after their own lusts. Plainly worded, this Law states that any pregnant woman who is attacked and loses her unborn child, the attacker will be punished and even put to death in some instances.

My word, people, what more can one say? How more clearly can the Word of God describe this horrible situation? The woman spoken of in this verse is not the cause of losing her unborn child. But the women of today who deliberately and willfully partake in aborting their child fall under the same punishment!

One may not be afraid of what God thinks at that particular moment in life. But there will come a day when God will judge the unbelieving world according to their works here on earth. Some of those deeds that will not go unpunished are listed in this verse:

~Proverbs 6:16-19 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

It is never too late to turn to Christ and be forgiven completely of your sin! Abortion is the shedding innocent blood! That life inside a pregnant woman has blood. The baby’s heart is formed after 18 days (from conception) and starts to pump at 21 days. There is blood flowing through that baby’s body from that point. This is the beginning of innocent blood! Please think again if you are thinking about aborting, dear one!

~Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

If you have already gone through with an abortion, don’t be one of those who will be cast into the Lake of Fire because of your sins. It is never too late to turn to Jesus Christ, the One who died for all your sins so that you may be set free from your bondage.

~John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

~Acts 15:11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.

~Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

~John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

~John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

~1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

~Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Accept Christ’s forgiveness today!

1. There is a preacher and wife who are very, very poor. They already have 14 kids. Now she finds out she is pregnant with her 15th. They are living in tremendous poverty. Considering their poverty and the excessive world population, would you consider recommending abortion?

2. The father is sick with sniffles, the mother has TB. They have 4 children. The first is blind, the second is dead. The third is deaf and the fourth has TB. The mother finds she is pregnant again. Given the extreme situation, would you recommend abortion?

3. A man raped a 13 year old girl and she got pregnant. If you were her parents, would you consider recommending abortion?

4. A teenage girl is pregnant. She is not married. Her fiancee is not the father of the baby, and he is very upset. Would you recommend an abortion?

If you have answered “yes” to any of these situations:

In the first case you would have killed John Wesley, one of the great evangelists of the 18th century.

In the second case, you would have killed Beethoven.

In the third case you would have killed Ethel Waters, the great gospel singer.

In the fourth case you would have recommended the murder of Jesus Christ.

With U. S. abortion deaths topping 30 million, only God knows what we have sacrificed in lost human talent and creativity.

Psalm 119:121-128

AIN
121 I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.
122 Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.
123 Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.
124 Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.
125 I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.
126 It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law.
127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
128 Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.

Standing up for what is in alignment with God’s word is not always easy.  I can sense the frustration expressed by the Psalmist in these next eight verses. Here in Psalm 119:121, he tells the Lord how he has done what is right in His sight and he pleads that God would not allow his enemies to overcome him.  So many times we do what we know to be right but we create waves and ruffle some feathers in the process.  It’s never easy taking a stand for what is righteous!  In fact, it is then that we will receive persecution.  Many a Christian mouth has been silenced for fear of the repercussions from those who hate God’s word! To submit to this is cowardly! We are no better than Peter (Matthew 26:74) when he denied knowing Christ!  Oh what a wicked world we would change if Christians would be bolder in speaking out for what is right!

I can almost hear the Psalmist (Psalm 119:122) as he pleads to God in the night hours: “Lord, I know that what I have to do is the right thing in this situation and I know that those who oppose me will create a major stink over this! Please let me be secure (safe) in Your word as I stand for what is right.”  He pleaded his cause so much that he couldn’t even see straight (Psalm 119:123)!  “I’ve cried and searched my Bible in the wee hours of the night, to the point where I can’t see straight, Lord!  If I’m wrong, show me – deal with me mercifully if I am, and show me Your will so I can do that which is right! (Psalm 119:124) And Lord, I’m your child so please give me understanding in this situation as I read Your word! (Psalm 119:125).  I want to do what is right!”  Can’t you just hear him?

What a prayer!  How many times have I personally prayed a similar prayer in time of crisis!!?? Horrible sins are going on all around me! But when I speak up for what is right, I’m told I’m judgmental or legalistic. Read Psalm 119:126 as the Psalmist experiences the same thing. I can’t tell you how many times I have prayed this verse (in my own words) when I see the injustices of abortion and sodomy in our land! “Lord, please judge these wicked, wicked sins and purge our land. Heal our land, Lord! These people do not care a thing about Your word and we’re seeing the effects of their sin through your judgments!” The Psalmist’s enemies didn’t take God’s laws seriously back then either!

The last two verses reflect a heart that has found peace after long sleepless hours begging God for His guidance. I love when the Lord puts a verse right in front of my eyes and I’m covered like a warm blanket by His Spirit as He gives me the answers I’ve been searching for! Psalm 119:127-128 reveal that the Psalmist got exactly what he needed from his time in the word! So much so, he compares it to fine gold – priceless! There can be no price placed when God gives peace and comfort! The joy that comes in the morning after a night of tears and pleading is a wonderful reward for our search! (Psalm 30:11) The enemy can be all around us but we can be safe in God’s shelter!

You can be certain that you will encounter much persecution when you stand on God’s word! The separated Christian will not only suffer at the hand of the unsaved but will also suffer at the hand of believers who have been led astray by wrong doctrine. Let’s take abortion, for example. A sad statistic is found at http://abortionno.org:

Women identifying themselves as Protestants obtain 37.4% of all abortions in the U.S.; Catholic women account for 31.3%, Jewish women account for 1.3%, and women with no religious affiliation obtain 23.7% of all abortions. 18% of all abortions are performed on women who identify themselves as ‘Born-again/Evangelical’.

Has this sickened you? It ought to! What a horrible testimony to the Lord, Jesus Christ! I can’t believe that true born-again believers would have an abortion. If a woman believes herself to be saved and does have an abortion, I think she should seriously look to God’s word and reevaluate her profession of faith. If she is saved, repentance is surely needed! Nonetheless, the world sees these statistics as fact as it relates to abortions by born-again believers! The smear on Christ’s name is just horrible!!! When confronting women about abortion, whether in person or by way of the Internet, we are criticized, called names, and are verbally abused. How can this be so? A murderous act has been performed because the child is a mere inconvenient consequence!  Wake up, Christian! Speak up!

We must stand on what is right, as did the Psalmist in today’s text! We must seek the Lord’s guidance and direction in His word when we need to know what to do in His name. When was the last time you can say you experienced Psalm 119:123?  God will give us wisdom if we ask Him for it (James 1:5).

Stand firm, Christian; the Lord is nigh!  Our time is short!

Psalm 106

1 Praise ye the Lord. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. 2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? who can shew forth all his praise? 3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times. 4 Remember me, O Lord, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation; 5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance. 6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly. 7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea. 8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known. 9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness. 10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy. 11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left. 12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise. 13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel: 14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. 15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul. 16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the Lord. 17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram. 18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked. 19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image. 20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass. 21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt; 22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea. 23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them. 24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word: 25 But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the Lord. 26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness: 27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands. 28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead. 29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them. 30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed. 31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore. 32 They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes: 33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips. 34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the Lord commanded them: 35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works. 36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. 37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, 38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood. 39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions. 40 Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance. 41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them. 42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand. 43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity. 44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry: 45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies. 46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives. 47 Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise. 48 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the Lord.

Today’s Psalm hit me in such a way, I was grieved! 🙁 Why? Because Israel’s actions and sins against God are exactly what our beloved Country is experiencing!  Let’s take a look and compare:

  • Psalm 106:34 – God wanted His people to destroy the nations they conquered so they would not be contaminated by their idols and sins.  The United States is a haven for every known religion of the world. That’s a wonderful thing for those seeking asylum from religious persecution. However, our Country’s believers allowed the heathen’s doctrines into their lives.
  • Psalm 106:35 – They did not follow this and each time they disobeyed, they did exactly that – they adopted that nation’s sins and backslid. The usage of the word “mingled” is very poignant. They “learned” the heathen’s works. That doesn’t happen over night – it takes daily “mingling.” The U.S. believers mingled and learned the works of those other religions and adopted these works to their own.
  • Psalm 106:36 – After they mingled and learned the ways of the heathen, they served the heathen’s idols. It is especially obvious that the U.S. believers did this as we look upon our religious holy days. Easter has turned the Saviour into a bunny and Christmas has turned His birth into Santa Claus and presents. These are merely two examples but I think you know where I am going with this.
  • Psalm 106:37 – We have sacrificed our very children to the doctrines of the heathen (of demons) by allowing compromise into our home. What use to be sin with our forefathers is considered “passé”, old fashioned or no longer applicable to today’s society. Our children have now learned a watered down Gospel and are lucky to know the very foundations of truth from the Word of God.
  • Psalm 106:38 – We have shed the blood of our own children for the sake of convenience and money. Abortion should not even be considered in a Christian’s life. However, you would be surprised at the number of supposedly Christian women who have had abortions. Abortion is sin. Abortion is murder – plain and simple. Sacrificing our children because having a baby is not convenient or finances don’t permit is an act of pure selfishness. America will be judged for this sin!
  • Psalm 106:39 – What was considered sin a generation ago (according to the Scriptures) is no longer considered sin but a lifestyle. What people were put to death for or jailed are no longer judged – in fact, their sin is disregarded altogether. A good example of this is the sin of sodomy. What God had created as pure and holy between a married man and woman has not been defiled. America lingered long around this sin and it is now to the point where it is on the verge of collapse because of it.

I praise the Lord that I have read the Book and I know how this is all going to end (Revelation 1:3). And, it WILL end with judgment upon our Country for mingling and lingering around the sins that we have allowed into our Country. Christ WILL come again and will judge the nations for their sins. Christians need to get back to following God’s Word and not that of man. Repentance and separation from sin is our only hope.

We must learn from 2 Chronicles 7:14!

Psalm 139

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. 1 O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. 2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. 4 For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O Lord, thou knowest it altogether. 5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it. 7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. 11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. 12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee. 13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. 17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! 18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. 19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. 20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. 21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? 22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Today’s reading is an absolute blessing. When one feels abandoned by God, he can read through this beautiful Psalm and discover for himself just how much God loves us! When you love someone, you learn all about them – you want to know every detail. Wow, think about this … God must love us an awful lot if He knows everything about us – from the moment we step out of bed God knows our thoughts, the words that are about to come out of our mouths and the actions we are about to take!

Nothing is hidden from the Lord! He has known me since I was in my mother’s womb (verse 16). The Hebrew word for unperfect here is “golem.” It means unformed (as in an embryo). God knew me from the beginning … and each member of my body was fashioned with God taking care of each detail. I think about each cell that divides into more cells and producing those cells which go to the brain, to the liver, to the nervous system, to the hair, etc. God stands by and oversees each one and has each hair numbered!

~Matthew 10:30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

On a side note, I can’t read this Psalm without tearing up for all those aborted babies! My word, all of their parts are written in God’s book! Oh the judgment that will take place for those who have taken part in aborting these precious souls!

So as I sat this morning feeling quite insignificant, I am encouraged by today’s reading! I’m not insignificant at all. God knows me inside out! His will for me is always best because He knows me best – better than my own spouse or my own parents! His perfect love cannot mete out anything for me that is not good for me! What a blessing! Leave it to the Lord to encourage His child!

Praise be to my Creator!!! My King of Kings and Lord of Lords! I glorify Thy Name!

~Romans 1:29-32 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Today’s text pretty much covers all types of sins. The last verse states that those who know God’s judgment and still commit such things are worthy of death. Furthermore, those who are guilty of supporting those sins are just as guilty of the same judgment! Wow! :shock: Do you see this?  Are you guilty of this, Christian?  Take a step back and look at your life.

When you go to the polls and vote, do you vote for someone who will support the abortion agenda yet you are against abortion?  You’re just as guilty as if you had done the abortion yourself!  Do you have friends or relatives who live a life of sodomy and they don’t know your stand on the issue?  Have you confronted them about it and told them they are living in sin?  If not, you’re as guilty of that sin!  How about couples who are living together?  Do you have friends you entertain in your own home and have not spoken to them about this?  How about if it’s your own child?

I believe you understand where I am coming from today.  If you think back on the morality of our beloved country 50 years ago, none of the sins I’ve just outlined were even spoken about in public, let alone encouraged or looked upon with complacency!  No – in fact, quite the opposite.  What has changed?  The Bible says that God never changes so His judgment will still be dispersed upon this wicked generation just as much as it was 50 years ago.

~Heb 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

God never changes! What has changed is the heart and mind of man.  Man has allowed the sin of this world to harden his heart. After all, the more you sin the harder your heart becomes to sin and the less you are convicted of it.  What God considered sin thousands of years ago is still sin today.  What God considered an abomination thousands of years ago is still an abomination today!  It is man who has strayed and has hardened his heart to the point where sin is no longer considered sin! To abort one’s child was considered murder – now it’s considered an inconvenience! To be a homosexual was considered an abomination to God – now it’s a lifestyle.

I was having this same discussion with a dear friend last week. I told her that when I was a young teenager, the world was disgusted by the sodomite’s sin! Today the world is not even mildly annoyed – in fact, laws are being passed to protect them.  Those who speak out against it are considered haters and charged with a hate crime. The world gets further and further away from the Word of God. Should the Lord tarry His return, I would not be surprised that in 50 years, pedophiles will no longer be viewed as disgusting and horrible sinners but will be an accepted lifestyle of society – or it will be stated that it is a “disease” – or they will say ‘the poor dear is sick’!  Oh deceived generation of blind hard-hearted sinners! This generation no longer recognizes sin but, instead, calls sin “good” – all under the title of “tolerance”!!

~Isaiah 5:20-21 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Judgment is coming. God does not change, dear soul. God will judge according to His Word, not according to what feels good or what other people say is right. How can one say he is a Christian when he is committing sin that God has said is an abomination or he is supporting the very same sin? Turning a blind eye is equal to supporting that sin – can’t you see that? How can you allow yourself to be so deceived by the god of this world, the devil, the father of lies? It is a choice that you will have to make and I pray your choice is made before it is too late.

If you are a Christian, then act like one! Stand up for Christ and what He has taught us. Don’t try to smooth ruffled feathers in a family when there is sin running rampant. Stay away from it – do not support it – do not condone it! And worse of all, do not be silent! The devil has his way with his children.  Why not allow the Holy Spirit of God to have His way with you?  How will they (the world) know what the Bible says on this topic except you tell them? Don’t sit on the fence – after all, the fence belongs to the devil. That’s what he wants you to do!  Jump off that fence and run as fast as you can to the Word of God! Then stop being ashamed of what He has taught you and start shouting His judgment from the rooftop!

The Christian Defense Coalition today launched a campaign to publicize Sen. Barack Obama‘s position on abortion, pointing to a commentary in the Washington Post describing his stance as “extreme.”

“He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion – a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called ‘too close to infanticide,” wrote former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson, now a Post columnist. “Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed that he would not want his daughters to be ‘punished with a baby‘ because of a crisis pregnancy — hardly a welcoming attitude toward new life.”

Yet, Obama often refers to his Christian faith and appeals to young evangelicals for support.

That combination was too much for Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition.

“Senator Obama talks about bringing hope, faith and change to American politics. We now see this is all just political ‘doublespeak.’ One of his top priorities as president would be protecting abortion rights and even expanding them. If elected, Senator Obama would become ‘The Abortion President,’ with the most extremist policies on abortion of any president in history,” Mahoney said. “Senator Obama’s views on abortion are so radical that he even wants American citizens to pay for them. This would include Catholics, evangelicals and all people of faith. He would also expand abortion rights through his passionate support of The Freedom of Choice Act.”

The coalition is publicizing Obama’s abortion support through advertising that uses an image of Obama’s face imposed on Uncle Sam, with the words: “I want YOU to pay for abortions.”

Kaitlin Clare, a spokeswoman with the coalition, told WND the graphic will be used on handouts the organization is preparing to distribute at the Democratic National Convention in August in Denver.

“It’s not meant to attack, but just to get the word out he is very liberal on abortion, probably one of the most pro-abortion senators in the U.S. Senate. We’re trying to inform people of that,” she told WND.

“He’s reaching out to young evangelicals and wants change. He claims to be for social justice. You can’t do all those things and be for killing innocent children,” she said.

Clare said Obama’s nationalized health care plan would include abortion among the treatments available for patients who are sick, and that would force Christians with moral objections to the destruction of the unborn to pay for that very act.

Mahoney said, “The Christian Defense Coalition will be working diligently over the next five months before the November elections to educate people of faith, especially Catholics, that Barack Obama wants them to pay for abortions. This is not a candidate who is concerned about social justice, hope and equality. Rather, this is candidate who will continue the violence and pain of abortion and refuse to end this tragic war against America’s women and children.”

The Obama campaign responded to the publicity effort with an attack on the message itself.

“Barack Obama understands that the best way to reduce the need for abortions is to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies. He is committed to commonsense solutions to achieve that objective and to changing the tone of the discourse which for too long has devolved into false and negative attacks such as this that do nothing to accomplish that goal,” said campaign spokesman Hari Sevugan in a prepared statement.

Mahoney’s announcement called for Obama to “embrace a Christian faith which supports and affirms justice and human rights and works to end the tragic violence and suffering of abortion.”

“The question must be asked, how can one support faith and values while embracing policies that brutalize children and wound women? Senator Obama cannot talk with integrity about his faith and social justice anymore than a segregationist or racist can talk about their faith, justice or equality with integrity,” Mahoney said.

“Throughout the Gospels, Christ taught us to stand for the most defenselessness, needy and broken in our society. Senator Obama betrays those sacred principles through his radical pro-abortion position,” he said.

If I Were President

Chuck Baldwin

by Chuck Baldwin
Constitution Party 2008 Presidential Candidate Due to my frequent criticisms of President George W. Bush, I am often asked what I would do if I were President of these United States. This column will serve as an attempt to answer that question. If I were President, I would begin the process of safely extracting our troops from Iraq. In the first place, our troops are no longer fighting a war, they are an occupation force, which occupies a sovereign country. And this is being done without a Declaration of War. The Iraqi people resent our occupation as much as we would resent another nation stronger than ours invading and occupying America. If such a thing happened to our beloved country, I’m sure many of us would also become “insurgents.”

In the second place, the invasion and occupation of Iraq was absolutely unnecessary. Instead of sacrificing more than 4,000 American lives and the lives of tens of thousands of Iraqi citizens (not to mention some 2-3 trillion dollars), President Bush should have supported Ron Paul’s bill, H.R. 3076, the September 11 Marque and Reprisal Act of 2001. This is the constitutional way to deal with rogue terrorist organizations. This is the way President Thomas Jefferson responded to the Barbary pirates.

According to Congressman Paul, “A letter of marque and reprisal is a constitutional tool specifically designed to give the President the authority to respond with appropriate force to those non-state actors who wage aggression against the United States while limiting his authority to only those responsible for the atrocities of that day. Such a limited authorization is consistent with the doctrine of just war and the practical aim of keeping Americans safe while minimizing the costs in blood and treasure of waging such an operation.”

Had President Bush responded in this manner, tens of thousands of lives would have been saved, trillions of dollars would not have needed to be spent, Osama bin Laden and most of his fellow terrorists would likely be dead, and we would not be bogged down in a nightmarish military quagmire in Iraq. And, if I were President, this is exactly how I would handle terrorist organizations such as al Qaeda.

Furthermore, it is absolutely ludicrous to say we are fighting a war on terror half way around the world when we refuse to secure our borders and ports. If I were President, I would immediately seal our borders. I would also see to it that employers in America who knowingly hire illegal aliens are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. In plain language: any employer who consciously hires illegal aliens would go to jail. They would not pass Go; they would not collect $200; they would go straight to jail.

By sealing the borders and by cutting off the money supply to illegal aliens, the problem of illegal immigration would dry up. As it is, we have no idea how many potential terrorists–not to mention violent gang members such as MS-13–have snuck (and are sneaking) through our borders.

And speaking of illegal immigration, as President, I would enforce our visa rules. This means anyone who overstays their visa or otherwise violates U.S. law is immediately deported. There would be no “path to citizenship” given to any illegal alien. That means no amnesty. Not in any shape, manner, or form. I would not allow tax dollars to be used to pay for illegal aliens’ education, social services, or medical care. As President, I would end birthright citizenship for illegal aliens. There would be no “anchor babies” during my administration.

If I were President, I would use the bully pulpit of the White House to encourage Congress to pass Congressman Ron Paul’s Sanctity of Life Act. In short, this bill would do two things: First, it would declare that unborn babies are persons under the law. Second, under the authority of Article. III. Section. 2. of the U.S. Constitution, it would remove abortion from the jurisdiction of the Court. In essence, this bill would immediately overturn Roe v. Wade and end legalized abortion.

Republicans tout themselves as being “pro-life.” Yet, the GOP controlled both houses of Congress and the White House for six years and did absolutely nothing to overturn Roe or end abortion-on-demand. Under my administration, we could end legal abortion in a matter of days, not decades. And if Congress refused to pass Dr. Paul’s bill, I would use the constitutional power of the Presidency to deny funds to protect abortion clinics. Either way, legalized abortion ends when I take office.

On the subject of foreign policy, as President, I would end foreign aid. I would also end the current infatuation with nation-building, empire-building, and interventionism. America is not the world’s policeman. Neither are our military personnel the personal militia of the United Nations.

Remember that President Bush told the U.N. in 2003 that the reason we invaded Iraq was for the purpose of securing the “peace and credibility of the United Nations.” (I lie not; that is what he said.) President Bush also placed the U.S. back under UNESCO in spite of the fact that President Reagan had heroically taken the U.S. out from under that sinister organization.

I am sure that readers recall that the U.N. Charter was authored by a Soviet communist agent (Alger Hiss) and that the U.S. has been fighting wars for the U.N. ever since the organization was created back in 1945.

Speaking of the United Nations, as President, I would withhold funds from the support of the United Nations. In other words, I would get the U.S. out of the U.N. Beyond that, when I move into the White House, the U.N.’s rent is up! They move out of New York City post haste.

By the same token, there is absolutely no reason for us to be in NATO. We should not be antagonizing Russia by attempting to expand NATO. There is no reason why Russia could not become a friend and ally of the United States. Free and fair trade with Russia and a noninterventionist foreign policy in Europe would do much to endear American interests to Russia. To insist on expanding and empowering NATO only serves to further alienate Russia and drive her to make alliances with Communist China.

Speaking of China, it is time that we recognize the very serious threat that China poses to the peace and security of the United States. Our trade practices serve only to allow corporate America to continue to invest in what will surely become an albatross around the neck of our well-being. We must discontinue the practice of allowing China to export its cheap products to the U.S. with no protection for America’s jobs and manufacturing, not to mention the lack of protection for our safety. This must stop, and it will stop when I become President. “Free trade” will no longer mean a free ride for Red China.

Furthermore, as President, I would take the preservation of our nation’s sovereignty and independence extremely seriously. This means that the burgeoning North American Union is dead on arrival the day I am sworn in as President. Gone, too, is the NAFTA superhighway. And for that matter, I would lead the United States out of NAFTA and CAFTA altogether. And any prospect for the FTAA would be dead as well.

As President, I would be the best friend that gun owners (and lawful gun dealers), homeschoolers, and veterans ever had in the White House. These are three of the most persecuted, harassed, or overlooked groups of people in the country. But not if I were President.

There is no reason why our veterans should wait for weeks and months to receive the medical care they need. It is disgraceful that we would ask our brave men and women of the U.S. armed forces to fight our country’s battles and then leave them to pretty much fend for themselves when it comes to receiving adequate health care. I would make taking care of our veterans an extremely high priority, if I were President.

If I were President, I would also do everything in my power to locate and retrieve any and all MIAs. I personally believe that there are hundreds of our servicemen who are yet being held against their will in various parts of the world. I would make finding them and bringing them home of utmost priority, if I were President.

On the home front, if I were President, I would end corporate welfare. I would also work to disband the Department of Energy (along with the Department of Education and many other federal departments). There is absolutely no reason for us to be dependent upon OPEC. There is enough gas and oil under the soil of Alaska (not to mention the Dakotas and the Gulf of Mexico) to meet the energy needs of the United States for the next 150-200 years. There is also no reason that gas should cost more than $1.50 a gallon (which is about what it was before Bush became President).

We must begin drilling for the domestic oil that we know exists; we must build more refineries and nuclear power plants. There is no reason why the United States cannot be mostly energy independent. It is time we started putting the people and interests of the United States ahead of the CEOs and interests of international corporations.

Lastly, if I were President, I would work feverishly to overturn the Sixteenth Amendment, which would repeal the Income Tax. And, no, I would not promote a national sales tax. That would be disastrous! Can you imagine what a 30% sales tax would do to the cost of EVERYTHING? Plus, give politicians a national sales tax to increase and just imagine what kind of percent that would grow into!

I would also work to repeal the “death tax,” inheritance taxes, and property taxes. The American people are already paying somewhere between 30% and 40% of their income to Uncle Sam. It must stop. We are bankrupting our country with this incessant and burdensome tax system. In addition, I would work to expunge the Federal Reserve and to restore the American economy to sound money.

Now, I hear people say, That’s easy for you to say; you are not a candidate for President. Ah, but now I am.

Last week, in its national nominating convention in Kansas City, Missouri, the Constitution Party nominated me as its 2008 Presidential candidate. Party delegates nominated me over Ambassador Alan Keyes by a margin of 74% to 24%. Therefore, I am now a candidate for President of these United States.

I believe it is only fair, as I continue to write these columns, that one understands the full disclosure of my candidacy.

As readers know, I enthusiastically supported Ron Paul during the Republican Primary season. I plan to continue to trumpet his call for limited government, non-interventionism abroad, constitutional government, and freedom into the general election as a Third Party candidate.

I do not expect the national media to pay us much heed; they seldom do. I do not expect to receive large donations from corporate America. I do expect criticism and ridicule. That is nothing new. However, I also anticipate tens of thousands of freedom-loving people from all religious persuasions and walks of life to rally to our cause. Why? Because thousands of principled people will not be bullied into voting for the “evil of two lessers” being shoved down our throats by the two major parties. Because this campaign is not about Chuck Baldwin. It is not about a political party. It is about freedom. It is about constitutional government. It is about restoring America to the founding principles bequeathed to us by our Founding Fathers. If you believe in those principles, join us!

In the meantime, these columns will continue to serve as a voice for America’s founding principles, as they have for the past eight-plus years. In addition, unlike the candidates from the two major parties, the taxpayers are not underwriting my campaign, and I will continue my day job. (Imagine that: a Presidential candidate who actually works for a living!) And all of this is just in time for my 56th birthday, which is tomorrow, May 3.

There you have it: this is what I would do if I were President of these wonderful United States of America.

It is interesting to see the similarities between the Fall of the Roman Empire and the course the United States is heading.

Between 1960 and 1990, out-of-wedlock births in the USA increased more than 500 percent (from 5.3 percent to 28 percent), single-parent families tripled, about 50 million babies were murdered in the womb, and violent crimes increased 500 percent. About 16,000 crimes occur on or around school campuses each day! In 2005, 37 percent of births were to unwed mothers, up from 36 percent in 2004 and 28 percent in 1990. The report stated that “The overall rise reflects the burgeoning number of people who are putting off marriage or are living together without getting married.” Are these the “Healthy Families” that the amoral campaign of that name is building by supporting abortion?

Homosexuals not only flaunt their sin in public, they are fêted, wooed, indulged, and thanked by politicians for their votes. It’s Sodom and Gomorrah again––or worse! In January 2007, Christian Vanneste, an MP in France’s ruling party was fined nearly $4,000 for saying that homosexuality is “inferior to heterosexuality” and would be “dangerous for humanity if it was pushed to the limit.” Of course, these are the facts. But daring to express the undeniable truth unleashes the wrath of police and courts in their zeal to protect the feelings of a favored class that complains of being offended.

Homosexuals and lesbians don’t procreate as God commanded mankind to do. The Creator’s very first commandment to Adam and Eve was, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth…” (Gn 1:28). “Gays” defy God’s very first words to mankind. They seek not children but pleasure, to the exclusion of all else. And in their self-absorbed folly, they taunt us with “gay pride.” Are they proud that their lifestyle is not only “dangerous” (it shortens the lifespan by 24 years2) but that it would abruptly end the human race if universally adopted? What madness supports this celebrated perversion?

Historian Polybius attributed the fall of ancient Rome to pedophilia progressed from rampant homosexuality among aristocrats. During the reign of Justinian, homosexuality and bestiality were acceptable as Roman entertainment.

However, many historians, including Edward Gibbon, in The Decline and Fall of The Roman Empire, suggest that the fall of Rome was assured only when the depravity of Roman society transcended to the military’s legions, where such self-indulgences replaced disciplines that made Rome’s legions so formidable. Moral corruption of the legions left the people unprotected from the crude armies that ultimately sacked Rome.

A great many children were born out of wedlock.

Source: History Guide

The Romans practiced infanticide, contraception and abortion in order to limit the number of children born to the Roman family. In terms of contraception, the Romans used amulets, magic potions, formulas, potions, oils and appointments. Most were ineffective.

Interestingly enough, the world says that Rome fell because of:

* Decay
* Financial Problems
* The Dole and Barbarians
* Economic, Military, Gradual
* Christianity
* Vandals and Religious Controversy
* Division of the Empire
* Lead
* Hoarding and Deficit

Even the rise of Islam is proposed as the reason for Rome’s fall, by some who think the Fall of Rome happened at Constantinople in the 15th Century.

I don’t know about you, is it any wonder that the United States as a great nation is not mentioned in the Bible? Could it be that we are following the footsteps of the Roman Empire and will collapse from within?

Look at the details:

1. Children born out of wedlock
2. Homosexuality
3. Sexual perversions
4. Pedophelia
5. Military adopting sexual sin
6. Abortion
7. Infanticide
8. Contraception
9. Witchcraft
10. Islam
11. Religions turning away from true Christian roots

Look up, oh Christian! If you are not 100% certain that you are going to Heaven when you die, you should put the matter to rest today.


~Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

~2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

“My mother did not want a 17th child. So she decided to get rid of me before I was born. Then a marvelous thing happened. My aunt dissuaded her, and so I was permitted to be born. Think of it! I was a miracle!” (Arthur Rubenstein, Pianist).

The facts state that approximately 40 million babies have been aborted in the United States alone. Do you realize that Israel has a population of over 7 million? It is estimated that the Jewish population world-wide is 13.2 million! Our country has a holocaust of its own going on and we are allowing it! Take a look at the top 50 most populated countries in the world and their respective population. When you realize that our country has killed as many babies as the population of one of these countries, it really puts things into perspective. This is an abomination!

Moreover he burnt incense in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and burnt his children in the fire, after the abominations of the heathen whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel. He sacrificed also and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree. Wherefore the LORD his God delivered him into the hand of the king of Syria; and they smote him, and carried away a great multitude of them captives, and brought them to Damascus. And he was also delivered into the hand of the king of Israel, who smote him with a great slaughter. ~2 Chronicles 28:3-5

Just as Ahaz sacrificed children, was judged and God gave his country over to the king of Syria, so will God judge the United States of sacrificing 40 million precious babies to the god of this world. All for the sake of convenience!

Abortionist Tiller Admits to Performing Abortions the Day Before Delivery
His Speech at National Education Association

By John-Henry Westen

ARLINGTON, VA, March 19, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Notorious partial-birth abortion specialist Dr. George Tiller of Wichita, KS, was caught on hidden video admitting to aborting babies a day before the mother’s due date. Students for Life of America (SFLA) today released the video which was made at the Feminist Majority Foundation’s annual Women’s Leadership Conference held at the National Education Association (NEA) on March 9.

The video reveals Dr. Tiller showcasing massive and graphic pictures of children with fetal abnormalities that he had aborted, so as to make the case for late-term abortions as necessary medical procedure. SFLA’s Executive Director Kristan Hawkins, who videotaped the conference and interviewed Tiller clandestinely, commented on the gruesome pictures of aborted children Tiller showed, saying, “One had an extra arm: could not that child had survived and received corrective surgery? Was violently killing the child the only way to go?”

“Pro-lifers are regularly condemned for displaying pictures of aborted babies, but here the pro-abortion crowd and the NEA are more than happy to showcase these graphic images, and even gave Dr. Tiller’s presentation a standing ovation,” added Hawkins.

Tiller, who currently faces 19 criminal charges for illegal late-term abortions in the state of Kansas, at first feigned ignorance of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, a federal bill signed into law in 2002 that protects born children from murder and illegalizes infanticide. However when questioned further about the measure he spoke of his ideological objection to the legislation, saying, “Let’s say you have 15 or 16, you had 1 slip out with a heartbeat; that is not a viable fetus, but that is born alive or has a heartbeat. Then you have to take that non-viable fetus and rush it directly to the hospital against the woman’s wishes.”

Update: Call for Total Decriminalisation of Abortion in all 47 Council of Europe States
Mandatory sex education for young people also recommended

By Hilary White

STRASBOURG, March 19, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), has now officially recommended that those few countries in Europe that still restrict abortions should guarantee unrestricted access to abortion.

The draft resolution from the Committee on Equal Opportunities for Women and Men says countries should “decriminalise abortion, if they have not already done so.” The Committee also recommended that sex education be made mandatory for young people.

The report from the Committee calls for the decriminalisation of abortion in all 47 member states and uses the list of justifications that are familiar to pro-life activists around the world: many “unsafe”, illegal abortions, a need for more artificial contraception to reduce abortion rates and “discrimination” against women in countries where the unborn have legal protection.

The Committee criticised even those legal restrictions that did not specifically prohibit abortion, saying, “The repeated medical consultations required, the time allowed for changing one’s mind and the waiting time for the abortion all have the potential to make access to abortion more difficult, or even impossible in practice”.

“A ban on abortions does not result in fewer abortions, but mainly leads to clandestine abortions, which are more traumatic and more dangerous. The lawfulness of abortion does not have an effect on a woman’s need for an abortion, but only on her access to a safe abortion,” the report said.

The PACE Committee’s report is scheduled for debate in the Assembly’s plenary session from 14 to 18 of April.

Some conservative Austrian members of the Council of Europe are reported to be formulating a response to the resolution but no objections were raised in the Committee’s deliberations.

MATTERS OF LIFE AND DEATH
‘Miracle’ baby arrives after abortion recommended
Review ordered after unborn incorrectly diagnosed as blind, deaf

An urgent review has been ordered into hospital procedures after an unborn baby diagnosed with rhomboencephalosynapsis, a rare and serious brain disease, was born without handicap to parents who now call him their “miracle.”

The case developed in the Fetal Medicine Unit at University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff, where doctors first thought the baby known as Brandon Kramer, and who now is teething and trying to talk, had Down’s Syndrome, according to a new report in the Daily Mail in the United Kingdom.

They later diagnosed the more rare brain condition after they determined he suffered from a swollen head and hydrocephalus while in the womb. They said tests showed his condition worsening, and they recommended to the parents that he be aborted.

The newspaper cited medical notes written by pediatric neurologist Dr. Cathy White shortly before Brandon’s birth:

“Rhomboencephalosynapsis is an extraordinarily rare congenital abnormality and this, therefore, makes it very difficult to predict the long-term outcome for this baby,” she wrote.

“I have explained to them [the parents] that children with this condition are likely to be profoundly handicapped with severe physical and learning disabilities and will be totally dependent for the whole of their life,” she continued. “They often need the level of care given to babies for the whole of their lives.”

Brandon’s mother, Becky Weatherall, and father, Kriss Kramer, were offered “termination” because of the diagnosis and doctors’ expectations he would be born deaf and blind and would survive no more than a few hours.

The report said, however, Brandon was born naturally and quickly given a clean bill of health after being examined by a team of specialists.

A member of a message board I belong to brought this article to my attention. He posted a personal testimony that really blessed me:

This article really hit home for me. 15 years ago my as yet born daughter was diagnosed with hydocephalus and we were informed that she would be at least moderately retarded and that we should abort as it would not be fair to her to have to live such a life, and it would be very difficult on us.

Abortion was not an option!

We now have a beautiful 14 year old girl that is equal to her peers in almost all areas. When born I could not even get a glimpse of my little girl because the doctors and nurses enveloped her in disbelief at her perfect condition. They told us this should never have happened. They obviously did not know the Great Physician! No medical college can teach and no doctor can learn what God can do.

Doctors have their place and they can make our physical life more comfortable, but God is the keeper of the keys and prayer and fasting is the best medicine. I thank God that He answers prayer!

An artist killed herself after aborting her twins when she was eight weeks pregnant, leaving a note saying: “I should never have had an abortion. I see now I would have been a good mum.”

Emma Beck was found hanging at her home in Helston, Cornwall, on Feb 1 2007. She was declared dead early the following day – her 31st birthday.

Her suicide note read: “I told everyone I didn’t want to do it, even at the hospital. I was frightened, now it is too late. I died when my babies died. I want to be with my babies: they need me, no-one else does.”

The inquest at Truro City Hall heard that Miss Beck had split up with her boyfriend, referred to as “Ben” after he “reacted badly” to the pregnancy.

She saw her GP before the termination, but missed an appointment at a hospital in Penzance. She then cancelled, but later turned up to an appointment at a clinic at Royal Cornwall Hospital in Treliske. The counsellor was on holiday so a doctor referred Miss Beck to a pregnancy counselling telephone service eight days before carrying out the abortion when she was eight weeks pregnant, the inquest heard.

The coroner, Dr Emma Carlyon, ordered that the identities of the doctor who performed the abortion and her lead consultant be kept secret.

The inquest heard that Sylvia Beck, the victim’s mother, wrote to the hospital after her daughter’s death, saying: “I want to know why she was not given the opportunity to see a counsellor.

“She was only going ahead with the abortion because her boyfriend did not want the twins.

“I believe this is what led Emma to take her own life – she could not live with what she had done.”

The doctor said: “I discussed Emma’s situation with her, and wrote on the form, ‘Unsupported, lives alone, ex-partner aware’.

“It is normal practice to give a woman the number for telephone counselling when a counsellor is not available.

“I am satisfied that everything was done to make sure that Emma consented to the operation.

She added: “We have since appointed more counsellors so there is more holiday cover.”

Katie Gibbs, Miss Beck’s GP, told the hearing: “She was extremely distressed by the abortion procedure, and I didn’t think she ever came to terms with it.

“She had a long history of anxiety and depression. Despite my best efforts, she was not willing to see a counsellor after the termination.”

Her boss at the clinic, said: “The time that can be given to a woman by a counsellor is limited in a busy hospital.

“I am satisfied everything was done to make sure Emma was consenting to surgery. I don’t feel there was any gap in the counselling service.

“There were lots of individuals who would be alert to any doubts. The comments made by Emma’s mother are not about a doctor I recognise.”

Mrs Beck told the court: “Emma was considered a talented artist, and sold a number of paintings.

“She was pleased when she became pregnant, but Ben reacted badly to the news.”

Recording a verdict of suicide, Dr Carlyon said: “It is clear that a termination can have a profound effect on a woman’s life.

“But I am reassured by the evidence of the doctors here.”

An unborn child has less legal protection from feeling pain than commercial livestock!
Taken at
National Right To Live

Between weeks 20 and 30, an unborn child has more pain receptors per square inch than at any other time, before or after birth, with only a very thin layer of skin for protection.

This is absolutely heart breaking! Please take a moment to read this publication by the NRLC. It shows you when a baby starts to feel pain. The liberals and the world would have women believe that this baby is only a “fetus” and is not a life!! 🙁 My heart breaks to think of how many millions of babies this country aborts on a yearly basis – each baby felt every bit of the pain the doctor imposes on him during an abortion!

Save the baby whales and save the baby seals but God forbid that anyone would save the baby humans!
