34th Anniversary of America's Death

On January 22nd, 1973 America made the stupidest decision ever. They made it legal to kill children. Tomorrow people everywhere will be celebrating their freedom, the freedom that to this day has claimed over 40 MILLION lives. America the land of the brave, the land of the free, the land of the dead. In this country you will go to jail if you kill a spotted Owl, you will go to jail if you kill a Bald Eagle, you will go to jail if you cut down certain trees, you will even be fined if you pick certain flowers. However if you want to have your child brutally murdered- go for it, that's been legal for 34 years now. If you were pregnant and driving to an abortion clinic to have that "fetus" disposed of but as you were walking up to the door someone came and punched you in the stomach killing the baby that person would be charged with the murder of a baby; but had you actually gone in and had the abortion it would have been fine because it's not a child. Does this make sense to you?
So the Fetus is not a baby huh? it's just a clump of tissue? Well what happens if you leave that tissue alone for awhile? we all know what happens if it's left alone for 9 months, Let me clue you in on a couple more facts not everyone might know.
By Day 22- before you know you're pregnant that "clump of Tissue" has a beating functional heart. His heart, brain, spinal column, and nervous system are almost complete and his eyes begin to form.
Week 4: His muscles are developing, and arms and leg buds are visible. His large, distinct head is clearly identifiable, along with the major outlines of brain and eye vesicles, the beginnings of his central nervous system, mouth and pharynx, body cavity, and the basis of his skeleton
Week 6: The brainwaves of this little boy can be recorded. His different muscles begin working together.
Week 9-10: All areas of his body are sensitive to touch. He sucks his thumbs, swallows, squints, frowns and puckers his brow. If his palm is stroked, he will make a tight fist.

That is just a few facts that you might not have known. Today I tried to watch a video of an abortion, I got 3 seconds into it and almost threw up out of anger and it was also VERY gruesome. I was going to put the link on here but it's too much for me, if you have a strong stomach and are prochoice or prodeath as i like to call it I'm asking you to watch one. If you dont have a very strong stomach then I'll write a little more for your knowledge.
Here are some common abortion methods I got these from a website (

1. Suction Aspiration: This is the procedure most often used in the first trimester of pregnancy (the first three months). The abortionist inserts a suction tube (similar to a vacuum hose with an extremely sharp end) into the mother's womb. The suction and cutting edge dismember the baby while the hose sucks the body parts into a collection bottle.

2. Dilation and Curettage (D & C): In this procedure, the abortionist uses a loop shaped knife to cut the baby into pieces and scrape the uterine wall. The baby's body parts are then removed and checked to make sure that no pieces were left in the mother's womb.

3. Dilation and Evacuation (D & E): This form of abortion is used to kill babies in the second trimester (24+ weeks). The abortionist uses a forceps to grab parts of the baby (arms and legs) and then tears the baby apart. The baby's head must be crushed in order to remove it because the skull bone has hardened by this stage in the baby's growth.

4. Dilation and Extraction (also known as D & X or Partial-Birth Abortion): Used to kill babies well into the third trimester (as late as 32 weeks old), the abortionist reaches into the mother's womb, grabs the baby's feet with a forceps and pulls the baby out of the mother, except for the head. The abortionist then jams a pair of scissors into the back of the baby's head and spreads the scissors apart to make a hole in the baby's skull. The abortionist removes the scissors and sticks a suction tube into the skull to suck the baby's brain out. The forceps are then used to crush the baby's head and the abortionist pulls the baby's body out the rest of the way.

5. Salt Poisoning: This technique is used in the second and third trimester. The abortionist sticks a long needle into the mother's womb. The needle contains salt which is then injected into the amniotic fluid surrounding the baby. The baby breathes in, swallows the salt and dies from salt poisoning, dehydration, brain hemorrhage and convulsions. Taking nearly an hour to die, the baby's skin is completely burned, turns red and deteriorates. The baby is in pain the entire time. The mother goes into labor 24 - 48 hours later and delivers a dead baby.

6. Prostaglandins: Used during the second and third trimester, prostaglandin abortions involve the injection of naturally produced hormones into the amniotic sac, causing violent premature labor. During these convulsions the baby is often crushed to death or is born too early to have any chance of surviving.

7. Hysterotomy: Performed in the third trimester, this is basically an abortive Cesarean section (C-section). The abortionist makes in an incision in the mother's abdomen and removes the baby. The baby is then either placed to the side to die or is killed by the abortionist or nurse.

8. Chemical abortion:
a. RU-486: RU-486 blocks the hormone that helps develop the lining of the uterus during pregnancy (progesterone). This lining is the source of nutrition and protection for the developing baby. The tiny boy or girl is starved to death and then a second drug, misoprostol, causes contractions so that the dead baby is expelled from the womb.

b. Methotrexate: Highly toxic, this chemical directly attacks and breaks down the baby's fast-growing cells. It also attacks the life-support systems the baby needs to survive. When the systems fail, the baby dies. Misoprostol is then used to cause contractions and push the dead baby out of the womb.

c. Abortifacient birth control (the Pill, Depo-Provera, Norplant, the IUD, Emergency Contraception). These abortion-causing chemicals and devices can act to kill preborn children in the earliest days of life. It is well known that abortifacient methods of birth control may act to inhibit ovulation and prevent conception. However, most women don't know they also act to alter the lining of the womb so that the implantation of a newly conceived child cannot occur. If the child cannot implant in the lining of the womb to receive nourishment, he or she dies.

I bolded this last one because many people do not even know that this is how the pill works. If you are taking birth control I suggest that you read up on the type you are taking, ask your doctor how it works or look on it has a section about contraceptives.

If you have had an abortion I thank you for reading this. I also want to tell you that your life is not over, God can and will still use you. The great thing about God is that he's a forgiving God, he's also a healing God and will help you get through. God can use you to help other women who may be thinking about abortion. We all do things wrong and to God wrong is wrong whether you lied, had an abortion, live a homosexual lifestyle, or disobeyed your parents. So do not get discouraged friend, you are forgiven and free.

To those of you who had an unwanted pregnancy and decided to let the baby live- THANK YOU. I know it took a lot and was the hard thing to do, but it was the right thing. I admire you.

So as I bring this long blog to an end I want to encourage you to take a stand. If all of us stood up and held our ground I believe this law would be reversed. As my pastor said this morning there are three things we can do Pray, Protest (peacefully) and present our faith.

You thank women who may have had an abortion for having read your post, but I assure you that no one who has had an abortion would continue reading. It disheartens me terribly to read your post: not because I am a proponent of abortion, but because you have neglected to write with a tone of concern, compassion and Christian love. Abortion is wrong; I could not agree more. But I could not agree less with your approach, and it is my hope that you remember that "they will know we are Christians by our love."

It was out of total concern for America that I wrote this post, maybe I should have buttered it up and made it pleasing to your ears, but I cannot do that. There is nothing easy to hear about abortion. I love people but I hate sin. Before you start thinking that I think I am perfect trust me, I am not. We all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We sin daily. Sometimes truth hurts even when spoken out of compassion and love. I am not a public speaker, maybe I lack speach presentation skills but this is my blog- it's my personal place to write about how I feel. This is how I feel about abortion and the choice America made to make abortion legal.
