The abortion issue really comes down to: who gets to decide if you get to live or not? Society? Your mom? You?
Remember, our Declaration of Independence declares the right to life to be “self-evident” ie, so obvious that it doesn’t even need to be justified. The only exceptions historically given have been for grand treason and murderers, both of whom were deemed incredibly harmful to society.
Now look inside your heart and ask yourself this question: Does that little, innocent baby inside that troubled mother deserve basic human rights? Is she such a threat to our society that she deserve to be treated like a terrorist or murderer?
I can tell you that the babies who have survived botched abortion procedures certainly do not feel that they should have be terminated. For example, this woman:
Or this one:
Adult children of gay couples were two to four times as likely to be on public assistance, more than twice as likely to be unemployed and more than twice as likely to have contemplated suicide.
More horrors from the abortionist business…
Abortion has ended 52,008,665 "inconvenient" lives since 1973, and counting...
WASHINGTON (The Blaze/AP) — A 16-month investigation into a botched late-term abortion conducted by two out-of-state doctors that led authorities to find 35 late-term fetuses in a Maryland clinic’s freezer has resulted in the arrest and multiple charges of murder for the two.
Dr. Steven Brigham, of Voorhees, N.J., was taken into custody Wednesday night and is being held in the Camden County jail, according to police in Elkton, Md. Authorities also arrested Dr. Nicola Riley in Salt Lake City and she is in jail in Utah. Each is awaiting an extradition hearing.
The two doctors were indicted by a grand jury for murder under the state’s viable fetus law, authorities said.
Watch the local ABC News2 video report:
For decades anti-abortion advocates have been fighting to keep graphic information about abortions and the babies they kill from the eyes of the people who need to see it the most. Consequently, the vast majority of people who support abortion claim that “they just surgically remove a bit of unwanted tissue from a mother’s body.” Indeed, Roe v. Wade apparently only made it through the Supreme Court on the expert testimony that aborted babies in no way feel any pain during the procedure, a claim that has been repeatedly disproved over the years.
The abortionist’s era of “blissful ignorance” may soon be coming to an end, however, as the same technology that allows us to glimpse distant galaxies have allowed us to witness the miracle of creation that begins at conception and accomplishes most of its work during the first 6 weeks of gestation, the time when most abortions are performed. Far from being a mere “mass of tissue,” embryos exhibit a level of complexity and innate intelligence that still baffles the human mind.
The video, which graphically shows the process of human progression, begins by showing an egg being fertilized and ends by illustrating a baby’s actual birth. Throughout the clip, viewers see the full fetal development, with explanations about what, exactly, is happening at each phase. But the imagery is spellbinding.
Pro-life advocates are giving the video rave reviews. While the nation continues to be divided on the abortion issue, some believe that the growth and expansion of technology is beginning to impact how individuals view the issue. The ability to see graphic details about the development of a fetus, they believe, makes it more difficult to accept abortion without sincere questions about life’s beginnings.
In addressing what he’s encountered in his research, Tsiaras says:
“The magic of the mechanisms inside each genetic structure saying exactly where that nerve cell should go– the complexity of these, the mathematical models of how these things are indeed done are beyond human comprehension. Even though I’m a mathematician, I look at this with a marvel of how did these instruction sets not make mistakes as they build what is us. It’s a mystery, its magic, its divinity.”

Is Abortion Murder? – From an Embryological Standpoint
Abortion is the #1 killer of African-Americans. More precious lives are killed by this unjust act than all other causes of death–combined! Yet, certain black leaders (especially those who used to denounce abortion, such as Jesse Jackson, Julian Bond, and the Congressional Black Caucus) continue to embrace death as a solution to unplanned Life. We are calling leaders out for allowing political and personal gain to monumentally shift their consciences. In April 1883 Frederick Douglass, while honoring the Emancipation of slaves in DC, asked presciently “How stands the Negro today?” Tragically, we’d have to answer that because of the betrayal of many of our leaders: “Killing our Future.”
The end of a marriage, for whatever reason, has a devastating effect on families. Not only do husbands and wives have to navigate their way through changes in finances, living situations and emotional stress, but those couples divorcing with children must take the well-being of their little ones into consideration as well.
Now a new report based on a decades-long study has found that children who experienced a divorce die on average five years earlier than those from homes where the parents stayed together.

A good article that, without putting down homosexuality or gay unions, or mentioning of God or morals, gives a compelling argument for why marriage should retain its “traditional” definition.
My Godfather was a bachelor who lived in a small cottage in East Melbourne. We called him Uncle Ernest but he was actually my grandfather’s brother and technically my mother’s uncle. He came once a week to dinner at our house and was an important influence on my development. Although my parents were by no means uncultured, he brought something extra into my life in terms of a respect for the arts and the value of refinement and taste. He was for me a model of elegance and urbanity and, most important of all, gave me a sense of style. I still remember when he took me to my first Shakespeare play in the city, performed by the visiting Old Vic Company. I believe he had a similar positive influence on some of my cousins.
