Scripture

Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves. Protect the rights of all who are helpless.”

~Proverbs 31:8, GNT

Quote

If Abortion is not wrong, then nothing is wrong.

~Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu {Mother Teresa}

Our society is made up of many age groups: the unborn, infants, children, adolescents, youth, middle adults, senior adults and the elderly. Of these eight, which is the most helpless and the most vulnerable? Not a lot to think about, hands down it is the unborn because the elderly can speak. The age old question is still in play, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Am I responsible for others?

According to Gallup poles 50% of Americans favor abortion while 46% oppose but Gallup admits the pole is flawed. The thing that makes a pole difficult is the wording of the question and in the case of abortion, only 19% of us oppose all abortions. However, 55% of Americans believe that abortions should be restricted to certain cases like rape, incest or the threat of the mother’s life. Only 29% of American’s are hard core abortionist, those who believe that abortion is justified for any reason. The sad thing is that only 19% of Americans are avidly Pro-life.

All abortions are fatal and brutal but some are more barbaric than others. Partial-Birth abortion is one of the most hideous methods of execution ever devised. It is a procedure where the abortionists pulls a living baby feet-first out of the sanctity of the womb in into the birth canal, except for the head, which the abortionist purposely keeps lodged just inside the cervix. The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument, such as long surgical scissors or a pointed hollow metal tube called a trochar. He then inserts a catheter into the wound, and removes the baby’s brain with a powerful suction machine. This causes the skull to collapse, after which the abortionist completes the delivery of the now-dead baby and then the parts are harvested and sold to the highest bidder. Congress [Republicans and Democrats] banned the practice three times and Bill Clinton vetoed each time. Would you want to trade places with Slick Willy. What about the so-called Christians that voted for Clinton? Bill Clinton showed no mercy to the unborn and none will be showed to him. [There will be no mercy for those who have not shown mercy to others. But if you have been merciful, God will be merciful when he judges you. ~James 2:13]

Let me tell you what is sad, one out of every four American’s condone the procedure detailed above. Thank God for the 68 % who do not.

  • An estimated 53,000,000 abortions have occurred in the U.S. since 1973
  • Mississippi has the lowest abortion rate in the U.S. One abortion for every 17 live births. New York has the highest, one abortion for every 2.3 live births. The U.S. rate is five live births to every abortion. In others words, we kill one out of every six. {A staggering statistic}
  • Three States do not report abortion to CDC: California, New Hampshire and Maryland.
  • Unmarried women account for 85% of abortions.
  • Only 5% of abortions are performed in hospitals.
  • Less than 1% of abortions are linked to rape.
  • Nine out of Ten abortions happen in the first trimester.
  • Only 12% of women having abortions do it for medical reasons.
  • The average cost of a first trimester abortion is $451. These are performed in abortion clinics, not medical facilities.
  • Although Congress barred the funding of abortion, 39 States use Tax Payers money to fund abortions. Thank God, Alabama is not on the list. Arkansas is the only Southern State that funds abortions. {I am sure the Clintons had nothing to do with this}
  • The DFLA [Democrats For Life America] claim that one in three demos are pro-life but they continue to support the Democratic Party that has been pro-abort for years. They support Democrats who are pro-life but will vote for any democrat over a republican. [Not buying this, if you are pro-life, you will vote pro-life]

  • We are getting donations weekly in Memory of Gary Garner. We have gotten them as far away as  Huntington Beach California. The money is going to build houses in Guatemala. We are getting very close to having two houses in Gary’s memory.
  • VBS June 13-17.
  • Roses For Mama [May 8th]
  • Congratulations to the Lady Hawks for clinching first place in the area: it means we don’t have to drive to Hamilton or Haleyville. Only one county in Alabama has no four-lane highways, guess which one it is? If you said “The free state of Winston,” you would be right.
