"You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born.” Psalms 139: 15-16
Abortion! How would you describe abortion to a five year old that by chance heard the word in school? Would you attempt to put it in simple explanation form like “Wrong place at the wrong time” or “UNWANTED”? Neither explanation would give the child a clear picture of what abortion is.
You could take the stance that then Presidential Candidate Obama took in 2008 while attending a forum at Saddleback Church “It was above his pay-grade” or “wouldn’t want to burden one of his daughters with an unwanted pregnancy”. With that statement, not much hope for an unborn child exists. If you were to take into consideration the background President Obama has under his belt you would think he would be a strong supporter of life, but that seems to not be the case.
Many providers (Planned Parenthood) of this heartless practice also deliver new life into the world. Having had read some comments of some the abortion doctors, they feel no positive feelings about their practice or any sense of reward. Why be in practice if the work you embrace offers no sense of reward? The reason people pursue a career in medicine or the medical field is to make a difference. A passion is present that drives the individual to make a difference in society.
Abortion has been referred by some as a “necessary evil”. If the ones that practice this medical abuse feel guilty but stay in the practice for the money then doesn’t that say something? So is the encouragement of abortion really fought out of bringing in more money to a clinic since the legal practice of abortion is not done in hospitals?
At one abortion clinic in Texas, every other Saturday of the month would perform anywhere between twenty-five to thirty-five abortions at $800 a pop, big money for ten minutes worth of work that took 13- week to create. Sure the clinic offers other services like breast exams, STD (sexually transmitted diseases), and family planning, but it is the abortion service that brings in the money. The other services were reported as to making Planned Parenthood lose money.
At one time before Roe v. Wade abortion was legal in the United States, but then deemed as illegal just to be legalized again by the courts in 1973. So the argument then was, why not bring this sensitive subject before the people of the United States and have a vote. Could it be that many politicians were banking on this so called land mark decision, backed by lobbying groups such as Planned Parenthood to keep the anti-abortion bill from ever seeing the light of day before the American People?
Just who is Planned Parenthood? Well Planned Parenthood has a dark creation. Margaret Sanger was an advocate for American Eugenics Society (Eugenics- forced sterilization) and founder of Planned Parenthood. She saw the poor and those with disabilities as “weeds” and “morons”. Even Hitler praised her work to the point of crafting most of his Eugenics work after America’s distasteful law.
In 1939, Sanger headed “The Negro Project”. Which I’m sorry to say was geared to eliminating the black population from the American soil. Sanger is not a woman for human rights, but just the opposite.
How is abortion any different than let’s say…cutting or self mutilation? Abortion activist state that a woman has a right to do to her body as she pleases, right? Well for those individuals that want to cut or self mutilate have a right to destroy their bodies as much as a woman has the right “by law” to destroy the life inside her womb. The difference is in the case of cutting or self mutilation the individual is met with intervention by family and physicians. In the case of abortion, family is strongly encouraged to stay out of the loop and the patient is not likely to be well informed on what she is carrying inside her body.
As of late legislation is being drafted that will require any abortion provider to provide an ultrasound of the unborn child as a part of the counseling process. Many “Pro-Choice” supporters say that this is an infringement of their constitutional rights. What to inform? To help the young, scared, pressured lady make an informed decision that will greatly affect the rest of her life?
Abortions are big money. Planned Parenthood made $200 million in profit last year (2010), while receiving federal money to run their mill. At a time of shrinking the belt of soaring budgets and de-funding programs that really aren’t out to promote a better America, Americans all across the fruited plains reserve the right to de-fund Planned Parenthood.
President Obama’s healthcare bill funds abortion simply by providing monies to Planned Parenthood. If you are a woman or know a woman that is contemplating abortion or abandonment I strongly encourage you to call Project Cuddle 1-888-628-3353 or visit their web site www.projectcuddle.org. Help protect the miracle of life and bless a family that is unable to bare their own. God bless the United States and the Warriors that defend Her.
