Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

Dr. Alveda King: Where is the Love?
King: Where is the Love? Rolling Stone, Planned Parenthood and
Overzealous Pro-Life Camp Controversy Pours Salt on Old Wounds
ATLANTA, March 6, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Dr. Alveda King:
When Rolling Stone magazine published Lauren Rankin's "The Seven Most Common Lies About Abortion," what
we discovered was a misstatement of the position of the reasonable
voices of proponents of life and natural women's health. Among the so
called "lies" the article lists are "Abortion causes breast cancer,"
"Most women regret having an abortion," and "Abortion is psychologically
damaging to women."
If you read the article, you will discover
that there is a lot of pain and frustration on both sides of the line.
The pro-choice voices believe that they represent the reproductive
rights of the women who go there to the abortion clinic to be rid of the
lives in their wombs. The pro-life voices believe that they are there
to protect the women and their babies. One thing that both sides get
right; women need respect and protection; but from what? And where are
the civil rights for the babies and even the fathers? Most importantly,
where is the love?
Here is the truthful platform of pro-life combined with pro-women advocacy groups:
In many cases, abortion has been found to be linked to cases of suicide, depression and other psychological disorders.
many cases where physical and psychological issues are noted in
post-abortive women, it is often also noted that no such issues were
present in the lives of these mothers prior to their abortions.
Added to these facts are the truth that fathers also suffer damaging psychological effects after their children are aborted.
In her book RECALL ABORTION,
Janet Morana uncovers the duplicitous agenda of the pro-abortion
industry, debunking lies such as those told by Rolling Stone and Planned
SNMA spokesman Kevin Burke and Oil of Joy Ministries have documented case studies of links to abortion and incarceration.
Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider is often behind
many reports and studies such as this one by Rolling Stone.
Planned Parenthood and their advocates refuse to admit is that
abortion numbers in New York and Mississippi are upside down with more
African American babies being aborted than born. In 2010 in Georgia, my
home state, 53% of all abortions were on Black mothers and babies;
with a distant 23% on Hispanic minorities, and 24% on Caucasian and
Finally, let's remember that the driving force behind the HHS mandate which
seeks to force tax payers and the working class to fund fertility
blockers and easy access to abortion is Planned Parenthood's never
satisfied lust for our money and our blood.
These lies of the
abortion industry hide behind clever promises to end poverty and improve
our quality of life. As Father Frank Pavone often asks: "How can
killing the poor serve the poor?" He has been reminding us for years
that "we are our brothers' keepers." I add that we are also our sisters'
and our daughters' keepers. I don't know about you, but my daughters
and granddaughters; my sons and grandsons need good jobs and good
education; not the pain and suffering that are often linked to abortion
and carcinogenic birth control.
Let's end the word games and
face the facts. Abortion kills babies and hurts mothers and fathers.
Stop the lies. Defund Planned Parenthood. Stop the HHS Mandate. Recall
abortion. Let's make love and life, not war on the wombs of women.
