What kind of people kill their unborn?

It was a horrible event in mid-December when 20 six-and-seven-year-olds were gunned down in their elementary school in Newtown, Conn. We want to make laws for trying to make sure that mentally ill and evil people can’t get their hands on guns to kill again.
Well, what about the 54 million-plus babies that have been murdered in the United States in the past 40 years? They were not gunned down. By our laws, they were legally murdered. If we call people who gun down innocent children in school, mentally ill and evil, what should the people who murder innocent babies before they are born called?
These unborn children are the most vulnerable in our society. There is no one protecting them. If we don’t stand up for the unborn, who will?
Our country has become a country of heathens. We treat our animals better than we treat humans. We may think we are advancing and moving toward a better society, but in reality, we are reverting to a world where human life is not valued.
A couple of weeks ago, I received an email relating to abortion. I have never, and would never, be in favor of murder. This email gave me the thought of what our country has been doing since the Roe v. Wade decision 40 years ago on Jan. 22. The email stated that because of the murder of so many babies, they did not grow up, become hard-working citizens and contribute to society. They did not pay in Social Security and taxes; therefore, as the citizens grow older, there are no younger ones growing up to pay their share of taxes. Look at our country today and the mess it is in with Obamacare, dwindling Social Security and higher taxes. We’ve killed so many babies that we don’t have the base of workers to continue the programs we have had in our country for years.
I am not a mathematician, but I think that if 25 million murdered babies had grown up and worked, and that number made just four million dollars in 40 years, the amount of taxable income would be somewhere between 50 and 100 trillion dollars.
Abortion, call it what it is-murder, is used many times as a birth control method. What has happened to our country is that we have become a people who just say, “Oh, if I get pregnant, I’ll just have an abortion?” That is the same as saying, “I think I’ll kill the next person I see.”
God will not be mocked. We can continue on as we want without regard to Him, and watch our world continue sliding into perversion and degradation, or we can decide enough is enough and make some changes.
Statistics say that a baby is aborted every 25 seconds in America. More than 2,000 babies are murdered every single day. We don’t cry out about that, but we are quick to jump up and shout when a lunatic shoots people. What is the difference?
The Rev. Harry Knox, who heads the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, said the RCRC was celebrating this week’s 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and the right to abortion has given many women “enhanced spiritual development” and more “joy in life.”
I’m not sure what Bible he has been reading, but apparently we don’t read the same one. Talk about wolves in sheep’s clothing!
We complain about China enforcing the “one-child policy.” One of the ways they enforce the rule is by making women have abortions if they already have a child. Are we any different from them?
If we want our country to change and become the nation it can be, we need to change ourselves and make sure we elect officials who honor human life.

    I am the mother of a miracle.The people who say “it’s just a blob of tissue” are not only lying to us but themselves! My miracle was born at 27 weeks 10 3/4 inches 1 LB YES 16 OZ and lost down to 14 oz,but she weighed less than many babies that are aborted and she was alot more than just a BLOB!How could anyone kill their baby I’ll never understand.My daughter,Marci had big beautiful eyes as they rolled her pass me to take her to NICU.she stayed in the hospital for 4 months 3wks ,144 days ,but God has a special plan for her life! She is a very friendly,bright compassionate and lovable almost 13 yr old !She is a real witness and inspiration to everyone she meets. She often introduces herself as I’m Marci Miller and continues with I’m a miracle etc… She knows she almost died and who was there holding her IN HIS ARMS!

    Mrs. Ortiz stated, “we need to . . . make sure we elect officials who honor human life.” This is very true. What we see are politicians who campaign on this issue but do nothing when they get elected. One local politician who grandstanded on this issue during the last campaign has done nothing on this issue since he was elected. What is he waiting for?

    Thank you for that article. It is amazing how we as a state and nation grow cold and callus to such a blight on our nation. The Republican leadership has started to address this atrocity with common sense legislation that protects women and the un-born. The bill simply stated that the Dr. has to be an OB-GYN and the Dr. has to have admitting prividges to a local hospital in case of an emergency. It is hard to believe that this was not required before now. It is common sense. The abortion clinic in Jackson, the last one in the state, is in violation of these laws. Read the news story in the following link to learn more.


    “The only remaining abortion clinic in Jackson, Mississippi, is in trouble because of a new state law that requires abortionists to be OB-GYNs and have hospital-admitting privileges. None of the hospitals in the area will accept them.”

    Representative Brown supported this bill and voted to protect women and the un-born.

    District Observer is incorrect once again.

      So Follower Brown voted with the majority on a bill. Woo hoo!

      If he was a leader he would have challenged the special interests and championed a bill which would adopt the personhood definitions that he campaigned for into law. If. If.
