The hidden half of domestic violence
How to have eternal life
March for Life
Abortion has been a hot subject for many years. While some of those who picket abortion clinics have been rude and abusive to women who go into them and have called these women "murders" it is those who promote this so called "pro choice" or "pro women's rights" people agenda that are the murders as most of the actual women that have the abortions are actually victims themselves.
Most abortion clinics have less
"informed consent' rules then dentist to pull a tooth. Many are actually
based upon lies, one of the biggest one is that the woman (especially a
teenager) is pregnant to begin with. It has come from those that worked in or
ran abortion clinics that often a teenager who came in for a pregnancy test were told that it was postive and an abortion was set up for her within a few day. They went through the motions for an abortion but none really took place as the test was negative.
Most do not realize but abortion is far more about control and money then anything else.
The rape and incest idea is a lie too....According to Planned Parenthood's own research arm, about 13,000 abortions each year are attributed to rape and incestórepresenting a mere 1 percent of all abortions
Even smaller numbers represent cases where abortion was indicated to save the mother's life, despite the fact that saving the mother has served as a pillar for apologists of unfettered abortion rights.
Roe vs Wade itself was based upon a lie:
According to an article published in Focus on Family magazine, 30 Years of Lies, the plaintiff for the Roe v. Wade case, Norma McCorvey, never even got an abortion after lying to her lawyers about being gang-raped. "When she found out the case went all the
way to the Supreme Court and resulted in legalizing abortion in all 50 states, she was stunned" and attempted suicide, writes Tom Neven. Sandra Cano, the "Doe" of the companion case known as Doe v. Bolton, claims that she was played as a pawn by her lawyer, who surreptitiously had her sign an affidavit stating that "she had applied for an abortion, had been turned down and had therefore sued the state of Georgia.... This is a lie," states Cano. She was even opposed to abortion, so the case was not even representative of her
views. Both women have begun new lives as followers of Christ and are seeking to have their infamous cases overturned as part of a campaign called Operation Outcry.
Most of all, we need to ask...what does
GOD say about abortion...does HE allow abortion even for rape or incest (which
is a very rare reason for abortion)
Abortion is wrong, therefore, because it is a failure to love, appreciate, and care for a human baby. It is also wrong because it constitutes the deliberate killing of an innocent human being. When people defend abortion, their arguments should always be evaluated
in light of the fact that the unborn baby is a human being, a separate individual from its mother. Therefore, deliberately killing it would be just as wrong as killing any other innocent human being. What should a woman do if she has aborted a baby and now realizes
she did wrong? She does not need to spend the rest of her life with the burden of unforgiving guilt. The Bible says abortion is wrong, but it also offers a source of true forgiveness through the blood of Jesus Christ. God will forgive if we will come to Him according to His conditions. Read and obey these passages: Rom. 1:16; 6:3,4; 10:9,10; Mark 16:16; Acts 17:30; 2:38; 22:16.
To be honest, there is one site that says:
Why Abortion is Biblical
The author states Today I continue to believe in a loving God, but I can no longer claim the Bible to be his Word and goes on to say I also find no problem with homosexuality. It is a naturally-occurring part of life, and the use of the Bible to condemn, harass and
belittle homosexuals is just plain evil. I wrote more about this in the article called When Christ was Gay.
Umm it sounds like this author does a lot of .."did God really say....."
Abortion is also a very powerful political tool. One has only to look at the ones that demand abortion be kept legal. They use fear to do so. We hear about how many women would die in back alley abortions if it were illegal but we sure do not hear how many die from legal abortions because often the cause of death is masked by something else.
One thing we seldom hear about also is that it is used to control. As it is, a woman who does not want to be bothered with a child can abort it, or in most states now, give it up by leaving it at a fire station, hospital or other authorized locations no questions ask...not even who is the father and does he want this child.
We hear about choice...but the choice only belongs to one side. If she does not want the baby...well bye bye baby even if the father wants it. However, if he does not want to be burdened with the responsibility of a baby...tough luck because she can have that baby
and force him to pay for that child for 18 or more years or she can abort it even if he does want it. A Christian prolife ministry has shown that more fathers who had a child aborted on them were remorseful then the women who aborted them.
In reading President Bush's recent message to the anti-abortion rally about protecting "the lives of innocent children waiting to be born," I was struck by the lack of mention of the father's complete inability to protect his own unborn child. In fact, no one seems to
acknowledge a father's rights to have a say in whether his child gets to live.
one voice continues to be unheard -- that of the fathers of unborn children.
As a family law attorney, I work daily with anguished fathers who have little or no say in the lives of their children. The agony of these men becomes unimaginable when the child is not yet born and they have no way of protecting the life they helped to create.

Third is the decision to get the abortion. As proof of male irresponsibility, people like to cite Carol Gilligan's famous study, In a Different Voice, which found that in one-third of cases, the father influenced the woman's decision to get the abortion.
But citing this and similar studies reverses the argument. If the decision to get an abortion rests with the father one-third of the time, then clearly, the woman has made the decision in the other two- thirds of the cases.
But even Gilligan's one-third figure is suspect. A few years ago, Arthur Shostak and Gary McLouth interviewed 1,000 fathers of aborted children. Their book, Men and Abortion: Lessons, Losses, and Love reveals that only 4% of the women had been opposed to getting the abortion in the first place.
So the myth that women get an abortion because of coercion by marauding sexual predators is an urban legend that serves to shield us from one simple fact: abortion is by and large a female-dominated decision.
The fetus that resides within the mother's womb inherits half of its genetic material from the father. But as a result of Roe v. Wade, fathers have no standing under reproductive law. Women, married or not, have no duty to consult with, or even inform the father about
the abortion. And this is exactly what happens 15% of the time. Fathers have been biologically disenfranchised.
It is a truism that rights and responsibilities go hand in hand. When rights recede, responsibilities also diminish. Thus deprived of their fundamental biological rights, is it possible that Roe v. Wade also may have intruded on men's basic sense of familial obligation?
To conclude, I am very much pro life too...but I do not know very many pro lifers that are so insensitive that they would rant and rave to a person who had an abortion telling her she is a murder and a baby killer. Yes, often a prolifer will call the abortion industry baby killers but most recognize that the women having abortions have not been given informed consent. They are not told that most women who have abortions will often regret it down the road, that they can often have physical problems as a result. They are not told that 5 years later, when looking a a group of 5 year olds at play, they may well wonder...what would my baby have been like.
I personally have talked to many women who had abortions as well as many fathers. Many of these men and women were still hurting decades later and still had problems forgiven themselves.
A few years ago, we held a memorial service to help some of these people heal from these scars.
Many of our precious children were aborted deliberately. Some thorough not choice of the mother, Some through their choice. We want everyone to know there is HEALING in the Lord. Upon our confession to the Lord for this, HE forgave. Now you need to forgive yourself.
Some of the women that last a baby due to abortion were but children themselves at the time and they were forced to have the abortion by adults. Some were forced to have the baby so the baby could literally be used for sacrifice. I have talked to women in both these groups and I have heard a recurrent theme. "I could not protect them. Some have felt guilty for years. Other parents may feel guilty for the lost of a teenager because they allowed the teen
to go out and they were killed in a traffic accident. My friends, this is loves unseen enemy, It is false guilt. Please read
