America, a nation headed for overthrow

What does a nation in bondage look like?

Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.  For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.  The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect. 
The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. 
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. 
The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men. 
From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.  He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works. There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.  An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. 
Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

A nation that was once blessed of the LORD, but she has since forgotten Him, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which they were obligated to do.

 
A nation that has eaten and is full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;  A nation whose herds and flocks, silver and gold, and all that she has, has been multiplied;

Then her heart was lifted up, and she forgot the LORD her God, which brought her forth into a prosperous land, from a house of bondage; 
She was led of the LORD, time and time again through periods of great uncertainty and chaos; He walked with her through the wilderness and carried her when she could not go in her own strength, that he might prove unto her, to do unto her good at thy latter end.

But she said in her heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. She would do well to remember the LORD her God: for it is he that giveth her power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto her fathers, as it is this day. 

And it shall be, when she forgets the LORD her God, and walks after other gods, and serve them, and worships them, The LORD testifies against her, that in that day she shall surely perish.  As the nations which the LORD destroyed before her face, so shall she perish; because she would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD her God.

When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting. By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.

A nation ready for the overthrow, and may God have mercy on America!

condoning the spirit of abortion until it slithers into America’s classroom

The statistics below are the (estimated) number of babies that have been murdered while safely nestled in their mothers womb.

U.S.Abortion Clock.org

U.S. – since Row Vs. Wade 1973 57,543,630

Worldwide – since 1980 1,321,899,250

Statistics were tallied at 1:57PM GMT on January 21, 2015- Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. [1]

History of Sanctity of Human Life Sunday-

President Ronald Reagan issued a presidential proclamation on January 16, 1984, designating Sunday, Jan 22, 1984 as National Sanctity of Human Life Day noting that it was the 11th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, in which, the Supreme Court issued a ruling that guaranteed women access to abortion. President Reagan was a strong pro-life advocate who said that in Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court, "Struck down our laws protecting the lives of unborn children."

Reagan issued the proclamation annually thereafter, designating Sanctity of Human Life Day to be the third Sunday in January, which represents the closest Sunday to the original January 22 date. His successor, George H. W. Bush, continued the annual proclamation throughout his presidency. Bush’s successor, Bill Clinton, discontinued the practice throughout his eight years in office, but Bush’s son and Clinton’s successor, George W. Bush, resumed the proclamation, and did so every year of his presidency. [2]

 

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting occurred on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, when 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children and 6 adult staff members. Prior to driving to the school, Lanza shot and killed his mother at their Newtown home. As first responders arrived at the scene, Lanza committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. [3]

A couple of things to consider

1.) the events that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary school was an egregious event. Most would say that goes without saying! The reason I want to make this perfectly clear is that oft times when someone tells us the truth, we do not hear the truth, but our perceptions interpret what we want to hear. There is an old adage “we see things not as they are but as we are”.

2.) evil is alive and well, not only in America, but all over the world and for the most part society is ignorant to the true source of the problem.

A good example of this can be seen in an interview the day after  the shooting between Megyn Kelly, with FOX News and Dr. Keith Ablow, a renown psychiatrist and FOX News contributor. During the course of the interview Dr. Ablow became incensed  concerning  comments made by the Governor Dan Malloy of Connecticut when he said, “evil visited our community today”. Ablow’s response was…

“STOP saying ‘evil visited us yesterday,’ NO, MENTAL ILLNESS visited us yesterday!” 

I wonder if Dr. Ablow considers ALL acts of “evil’ as being the results of “mental illness”?

Now there are many like Dr. Ablow, that think it is more palatable to the human intellect to substitute the ‘acts of evil’ with ‘mental illness’. From the human perspective, mental illness requires one look no further than the flesh, and as long as we can see it and touch it, we can understand it. I contend the acts of evil run much deeper than mental illness, but just for the record, I am not psychiatrist.

The first recorded murder in the Bible was that of Cain slaying his brother Able. I am thinking if Dr. Ablow would have lived in that day, he would have assessed this evil act, an would have surmised that Cain was mentally ill. My contention is the act of murder had nothing to do with mental illness, rather the content of Cain’s heart. It was wicked and the evil proceeded forthwith.

Dr. Ablow would probably have stood on the same ‘mental illness’ platform to define the demonic force in the man from Gadara that Jesus encountered Luke 8:26-39. Here in lies the crux of the problem, human intellect often gives place to mental illness where the real culprit is a demonic influence. The problem is, society thinks we can control mental illness as long as we give the individual enough of the right medication to settle the beast within.

Weeks following the events of what took place at Sandy Hook Elementary, facilitated debates from the most educated pundits of our society, (government leaders, doctors, lawyers and clergy from every religion) and not one, even remotely mentioned the demonic influence involved in the egregious act.

Proverbs 16:4 says “The Lord hath made all things for himself; yea, even the wicked for the day of evil”.

We can rest assured that nothing that happens, takes God by surprise, whether is is good or evil, even the things such as the killing of innocent children.

There is a prophecy in the word of God by the mouth of His prophet Jeremiah 31:15 in which he prophesies concerning a voice of lamentation in Ramah, it is the voice of Rachel weeping for her children. Ramah was a city just North of Jerusalem which was used as an assembly point for those Jews that were taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 B.C. The prophecy came by the mouth of Jeremiah 9 years before the last deportation. Rachel was the mother of Joseph and Benjamin was seen as weeping over the exiles.

This prophecy has a dual prophetic association. It is also associated with the slaughter of all the male children that were 2 years and younger at the decree of Herod when the Christ Child was born… Matthew 2. We are not told the specific number of children that were slaughtered but the massacre did not take God by surprise. Almost 600 years before Herod’s decree, God spoke it through His prophet Jeremiah. The voice of mother’s all across Ramah were weeping for their children that were being slaughtered at the hand of King Herod’s decree.

Now if God is aware of these type of forthcoming event and could stop it, but does not intervene, one can only surmise that God allows it for a reason.


Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. Psalm 127:1-2

The Columbine High School massacre was a school shooting that occurred on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, an unincorporated area of Jefferson County in the state of Colorado.

The perpetrators, two senior students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered a total of 12 students and one teacher. They injured 21 additional people, with three others being injured while attempting to escape the school. The pair then committed suicide. [4]

One of the 12 students that were killed that day was a girl name Rachel Joy Scott. On May 27, 1999, before the Congressional sub-committee on crime, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel read this poem that he had written after his daughters death.

Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You’ve stripped away our heritage,
You’ve outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question "Why?"
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!


As you can see in the U.S.AbortionClock.org that the demonic spirit of abortion is not restricted to the United States …

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — The bloody siege of an elite army high school Tuesday, December 16, 2014 by Taliban gunmen, which killed at least 141 students and teachers, was an apparent retaliation for a major recent army operation after years of ambivalent policies toward the homegrown Islamist militants.

“The mass targeting of children, in a military zone in the northwestern city of Peshawar, drew condemnation from around the world, as well as from across Pakistan’s political and religious spectrums” — a rare display of unity in a country where Islamist violence is often quietly accepted and sometimes defended. The attack was also condemned by Taliban leaders in Afghanistan. [5]


If we tally the three instances that have been mentioned in this post, it includes 180 souls which were both children and teachers. The comment from the Washington Post echoes the public out cry of not only what took place in Islamabad, Pakistan, but Sandy Hook and Columbine alike, while there remains a deafening silence for the innocent souls that are being slaughtered in their mother’s womb.

I Wonder if Dr. Ablow sees the abortion industry as the by-product of  ‘mental illness’ or even ‘evil’ at all?

God have mercy on America and it’s leaders that have murdered 57 million innocent children.

something that is etched in stone can not be redefined

redefine [ˌriːdɪˈfaɪn] verb (tr)

to define (something) again or differently

Collins English Dictionary – Complete and Unabridged © HarperCollins Publishers 1991, 1994, 1998, 2000, 2003

 

Have you ever heard the idiom ‘etched in stone” or ‘cast in stone’?

The meaning of the idiom speaks to something that is definite and fixed.  Both expressions allude to the work in sculpture, with the first, from the early 1500s, using the verb cast in the sense of pouring and hardening some material into a final form, and the second cutting or corroding a permanent design. Hence something that is ‘etched in stone’ is permanent and cannot be changed.

 

In this ever changing day we are living in, it seems NOTHING is ‘etched in stone’. The morals of a society that have endured for nearly 237 years is no longer profitable. As this same morally eroding society seeks to satisfy the lust of the flesh, the dictates of one’s mind is subject to the same whimsical spirit.

I have listed some evidence of this spirit.

 

Article posted, Wed- 22 Aug.2012 on the Christian Institute ‘Boris Johnson backs redefining marriage’.

 

The article states the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson has recorded a video for a homosexual marriage campaign group saying he supports a redefinition of the institution.

In previous years Boris Johnson has warned of potential negative impacts of same-sex marriage and criticized the promotion of homosexuality in schools.

In 2001, Mr. Johnson wrote that “if gay marriage was OK – and I was uncertain on the issue – then I saw no reason in principle why a union should not be consecrated between three men, as well as two men, or indeed three men and a dog”.[1]


Some years back Mayor Johnson had some pretty strong convictions about what constituted marriage as well as the negative impacts of homosexuality upon a society, but has since recanted his stand, and now endorses the idea that marriage needs to be “redefined”.

The second article was posted on The Prison Planet entitled ‘Canadian Medical Association Redefines Human Life’ The Canadian Medical Association, the largest association of doctors in Canada, has redefined human life. On August 15, as reported by LifeNews, delegates to the CMA’s general council voted to pass “a resolution supporting the current wording of the Criminal Code which states that a child ‘becomes a human being within the meaning of this Act when it has completely proceeded, in a living state, from the body of its mother.’ ” The CMA resolution is intended to support the nation’s criminal code, which defines an infant as a human being only after the infant is born.

Canadian Physicians for Life decried the action, calling it shameful and unethical. Dr. Will Johnston, president of that organization, said that “every Canadian doctor knows that the unborn child is a live human being…. CMA delegates worry about children not exercising enough or not wearing bicycle helmets, while over one hundred thousand children go missing from our playgrounds every year because they were killed by abortion.” [2]


If God has possessed our reins and covered us in our mother’s womb and set us apart for His own purpose, it must be the inhabitant of the womb IS a human being.

It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant an educated society can be!

The next is an email from the Christian Anti Defamation Commission I received on March 21, 2013. It seems the ‘delusional spirit is alive and well in the States. The article is testimony of a prominent conservative Republican leader and controversial pastor who have both come out in support of homosexual marriage. Both men used the teachings of Christ as a reason to affirm these “marriages.”

Senator Rob Portman from Ohio released a statement announcing his changed view on homosexual “marriage” after learning that his son was living a homosexual lifestyle. In it, he claims the shift was in part because of his faith and what he reads in the Bible.

"I wrestled with how to reconcile my Christian faith with my desire for [my son] to have the same opportunities to pursue happiness and fulfillment as his brother and sister," he continued. "Ultimately, it came down to the Bible’s overarching themes of love and compassion and my belief that we are all children of God …We conservatives believe in personal liberty and minimal government interference in people’s lives. We also consider the family unit to be the fundamental building block of society. We should encourage people to make long-term commitments to each other and build families, so as to foster strong, stable communities and promote personal responsibility."

 

In another announcement, Pastor Rob Bell, founder and former pastor of Mars Hill Bible Church located in Grandville, Michigan, stated that he supports homosexual marriage. “I am for marriage. I am for fidelity. I am for love, whether it’s a man and woman, a woman and a woman, a man and a man.” [3]


In a March 2013 Christian Post interview with Rob Bell, the former mega church pastor said at Vanderbilt University that he doesn’t believe God is some far away notion that people in the real world need to always be reaching out to, but that the whole world is filled with God’s presence.

"God is with us. God is for us. God is ahead of us," the author said.

During his speech, Bell shared of AA meetings he attended as a young pastor that greatly affected him.

"While he is not an alcoholic, he said that in those meetings he was able to stop pretending that he had life figured out. Instead he could simply accept that God cared for him with all his flaws,". [4]

The third principle of the Alcoholic Anonymous 12-Step program is that one (the alcoholic) must step out in faith. It is only a matter of being willing to believe. Through the process of the 12 steps, AA states that belief turns into faith. We carry this faith into the rest of the steps by being willing to believe. We must begin to have faith it will work.

So what does AA say the alcoholic must believe in? The alcoholic must make a decision to turn his/her will and lives over to the care of God as they understand Him.

This is a very dangerous principle. God is not a lump of clay that an individual can flop on a potters wheel and fashion Him into whatever we want Him to be. A thought process whereby we can make God whatever our mind desires to conjure up, no matter what good we think may come from it, is not the work of the Spirit of Truth.

Consider the events following God’s deliverance of the nation Israel from Egypt. Moses was on Mount Horeb for 40 days receiving the words of God. The people had become discouraged and requested that Aaron would make them a god, which would go before them. Exodus 32

Aaron took of their golden earrings and melted them down and fashioned a molten calf of gold, to which they bowed down and worshipped and said “these be thy gods, O Israel which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt”. One’s mind does not make God what we want Him to be, He is what He is and He is the same yesterday, today and forever, and cannot change.

While Bell was speaking at the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco about his new book ‘What We Talk About When We Talk About God’, he made this comment…

“I would say that the powerful, revolutionary thing about Jesus’ message is that he says, ‘What do you do with the people that aren’t like you? What do you do with the other? What do you do with the person that’s hardest to love?’” he replied. “That’s the measure of a good religion, is you can love the people who are just like you; that’s kind of easy. So what Jesus does is takes the question and talks about fruit. He’s interested in what you actually produce. And that’s a different discussion. How do we love the people in the world that are least like us?”

40-years of murder Roe v. Wade

Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Jeremiah 1:4-5

On January 22, 1973 the Supreme Court’s voted 7-2 in the case of Row v. Wade that established a nationwide right to abortion (government condoned murder of innocence). Forty years  of murder and some 55 million abortions later, while America is awaiting the full impact of God’s judgment….

COURT RULES UNBORN IS ‘CHILD’

Judges ‘affirmed the value of all life, including those most vulnerable of all’Published: 01/11/2013 at 5:46 PM

A ruling from the Alabama Supreme Court has concluded that a reference in state law that prevents exposing children to dangerous chemicals also protects an unborn child.

While the decision itself is unrelated to abortion, in a court where at least one justice has advocated overturning Roe v. Wade the decision today in Ankrom v. State undoubtedly will be referenced again.

Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2013/01/court-rules-unborn-is-child/#9WtMczLUwyLvfFSF.99

The case upheld the convictions of two women, Hope Ankrom of Coffee County and Amanda Kimbrough of Colbert County, who were prosecuted for using drugs during their pregnancies.

The state law originally was intended to prevent parents from operating meth labs around children, or allowing children to be in meth labs, and does not mention the unborn.

But the decision said “The plain meaning of the word ‘child’ in the chemical endangerment statute includes unborn children.”

Mathew Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, a pro-life law firm that filed an amicus brief in the case, said, “In personal injury, criminal, and wills and estate law, the trend has been to recognize the unborn child as a human with legal protections, not merely a ‘potential’ human being.

“The U.S. Supreme Court’s abortion cases are an aberration to law and stand on an island by themselves, and that island will one day disappear,” he said.

After all, it was the original Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion throughout the United States that noted should the personhood of the unborn be established, abortion advocacy would disintegrate, since the unborn then would be qualified for all the protections offered by the U.S. Constitution.

Liberty Counsel said its brief “provided the Alabama Supreme Court with a thorough historical review of legal protection for unborn children, dating from ancient Greece to the present day.”

The group said, “Common law in England and the United States, with support from the medical and legal professions, recognized that ‘[life] is the immediate gift of God, a right inherent in every individual; and it begins in contemplation of law as soon as an infant is able to stir in the mother’s womb.’ This understanding remained the prevailing view in the United States through the middle of the 20th century, when a societal shift prompted a ‘liberalization’ of criminal laws, including restrictions against abortion, culminating in the abortion cases, Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, (1973) and Doe v. Bolton, 410 U.S. 179 (1973), in which the Supreme Court held that unborn children are not ‘persons’ protected by the right to life set forth in the Constitution.”

In a report on WTVY in Alabama, state Attorney General Luther Strange praised the resolution.

“The court has ratified our argument that the public policy of our state is to protect life, both born and unborn,” he said. “It is a tremendous victory that the Alabama Supreme Court has affirmed the value of all life, including those of unborn children whose lives are among the most vulnerable of all.”

According to records, Ankrom and her newborn son both tested positive for cocaine when the child was born in 2000. She was on probation for a year. Kimbrough’s son was born in 2008 and died 19 minutes later. His cause of death was “acute methamphetamine intoxication” and she was sentenced to 10 years.

Previously, the same court suggested that states simply “reject” the concept of pre-viability abortion-at-will that comes from Roe v. Wade until the U.S. Supreme Court overrules the precedent.

In a powerful statement that appears to affirm the concept of the “personhood” movement, through which pro-life advocates seek to have states recognize the unborn as “persons,” a concurrence in a case result from Justice Tom Parker said, “Since Roe was decided in 1973, advances in medical and scientific technology have greatly expanded our knowledge of prenatal life.

“The development of ultrasound technology has enhanced medical and public understanding, allowing us to watch the growth and development of the unborn child in a way previous generations could never have imagined,” he wrote.

“Similarly, advances in genetics and related fields make clear that a new and unique human being is formed at the moment of conception, when two cells, incapable of independent life, merge to form a single, individual human entity.”

He continued, “Of course, that new life is not yet mature – growth and development are necessary before that life can survive independently – but it is nonetheless human life. And here has been a broad legal consensus in America, even before Roe, that the life of a human being begins at conception.”

His concurrence continued, “An unborn child is a unique and individual human being from conception, and, therefore, he or she is entitled to the full protection of law at every stage of development.

Get Judge Roy Moore’s classic book about his battle for liberty, “So Help Me God: The Ten Commandments, Judicial Tyranny, and the Battle for Religious Freedom.”

“Roe’s viability rule was based on inaccurate history and was mostly unsupported by legal precedent. Medical advances since Roe have conclusively demonstrated that an unborn child is a unique human being at every stage of development. And together, Alabama’s homicide statute, the decisions of this court, and the statutes and judicial decisions from other states make abundantly clear that the law is no longer, in Justice Blackmun’s words, ‘reluctant … to accord legal rights to the unborn..’

“For these reasons, Roe’s viability rule is neither controlling nor persuasive here and should be rejected by other states until the day it is overruled by the United States Supreme Court,” he said.

It came in addition to a unanimous majority opinion, which Parker also wrote, that said a woman, Amy Hamilton, was entitled to pursue a claim over wrongful death of her unborn child.

Parker explained he wrote the special concurrence to the unanimous ruling because the Roe decision doesn’t apply in such cases.

“Because Roe is not controlling authority beyond abortion law, and because its viability standard is not persuasive, I conclude that, at least with regard to the law for wrongful death, Roe’s viability standard should be universally abandoned.”

The “personhood” campaign that has been developing around the nation calls for states to adopt constitutional amendments describing the unborn from the moment of conception as “persons.”

Also of note is the fact that Judge Roy Moore last November was elected to the position of chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and soon will be sworn in to those responsibilities.

He told WND that he will be responsible for acknowledging that God is the sources of human rights.

“I get criticized for my professions that God is the basis of all rights or liberties,” he told WND, “and yet, the rule of law, being the Constitution, and its companion, the Declaration of Independence, organize the laws of our country on [the premise that] our rights come from God.”

Government’s job, he said, is to secure and protect those rights.

Further, the full Constitution needs to play an active role today, he said.

Alabama has the proper biblical perspective. I would to God, America had more statesmen like Attorney General Luther Strange, Judge Roy Moore and Justice Tom Parker.

The word of God teaches [Romans 13] that government (authority) is established BY GOD to punish evil and protect good. When government becomes the instrument of evil against good instead of good against evil, bitter for sweet, and darkness for light, there is but one fate…. His judgment!

“Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, and shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.” Psalm 106:37-38

Pray for God’s mercy on America, for the shedding of innocent blood.

Who Will Speak Up For You?

Pastor Martin Niemoller (1892-1984)
“In Germany, they came first for the Communists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;
And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up.”

Below is the chilling testimony of Jill L. Stanek before the House Judiciary Subcommittee speaking for the rights of children that are born alive. The testimony is graphic as is our nation’s sin against the innocent child made in the likeness of God. We shall not expect mercy for such atrocities…

Testimony of Jill L. Stanek, RN

 Hearing on H.R.4292, the ‘Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2000’ House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution July 20,2000

I am a Registered Nurse who has worked in the Labor & Delivery Department at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois, for the past five years. Christ Hospital performs abortions on women in their second or even third trimesters of pregnancy. Sometimes the babies being aborted are healthy, and sometimes they are not.

The method of abortion that Christ Hospital uses is called “induced labor abortion,” also now known as “live birth abortion.” This type of abortion can be performed different ways, but the goal always is to cause a pregnant woman’s cervix to open so that she will deliver a premature baby who dies during the birth process or soon afterward. The way that induced abortion is most often executed at my hospital is by the physician inserting a medication called Cytotec into the birth canal close to the cervix. Cytotec irritates the cervix and stimulates it to open. When this occurs, the small, preterm baby drops out of the uterus, oftentimes alive. It is not uncommon for one of these live aborted babies to linger for an hour or two or even longer. One of them once lived for almost eight hours.

In the event that a baby is aborted alive, he or she receives no medical assessments or care but is only given what my hospital calls “comfort care.” “Comfort care” is defined as keeping the baby warm in a blanket until he or she dies, although even this minimal compassion is not always provided. It is not required that these babies be held during their short lives.

One night, a nursing co-worker was taking an aborted Downs Syndrome baby who was born alive to our Soiled Utility Room because his parents did not want to hold him, and she did not have time to hold him. I could not bear the thought of this suffering child dying alone in a Soiled Utility Room, so I cradled and rocked him for the 45 minutes that he lived. He was 21 to 22 weeks old, weighed about ½ pound, and was about 10 inches long. He was too weak to move very much, expending any energy he had trying to breathe. Toward the end he was so quiet that I couldn’t tell if he was still alive unless I held him up to the light to see if his heart was still beating through his chest wall. After he was pronounced dead, we folded his little arms across his chest, wrapped him in a tiny shroud, and carried him to the hospital morgue where all of our dead patients are taken.

Other co-workers have told me many upsetting stories about live aborted babies whom they have cared for. I was told about an aborted baby who was supposed to have Spina bifida but was delivered with an intact spine. Another nurse is haunted by the memory of an aborted baby who came out weighing much more than expected ~ almost two pounds. She is haunted because she doesn’t know if she made a mistake by not getting that baby medical help. A Support Associate told me about a live aborted baby who was left to die on the counter of the Soiled Utility Room wrapped in a disposable towel. This baby was accidentally thrown into the garbage, and when they later were going through the trash to find the baby, the baby fell out of the towel and on to the floor.

I was recently told about a situation by a nurse who said, “I can’t stop thinking about it.” She had a patient who was 23+ weeks pregnant, and it did not look as if her baby would be able to continue to live inside of her. The baby was healthy and had up to a 39% chance of survival, according to national statistics. But the patient chose to abort. The baby was born alive. If the mother had wanted everything done for her baby, there would have been a neonatologist, pediatric resident, neonatal nurse, and respiratory therapist present for the delivery, and the baby would have been taken to our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for specialized care. Instead, the only personnel present for this delivery were an obstetrical resident and my co-worker. After delivery the baby, who showed early signs of thriving, was merely wrapped in a blanket and kept in the Labor & Delivery Department until she died 2-1/2 hours later.

Something is very wrong with a legal system that says doctors are mandated to pronounce babies dead but are not mandated to assess babies for life and chances of survival. In other words, our laws currently say that babies have no rights to medical oversight until they are dead. We look the other way and pretend that these babies aren’t human while they’re alive but human only after they are dead. We issue these babies both birth and death certificates, but it is really only the death certificate that matters. No other children in America are medically abandoned like this.

Abortion is a cancer that is literally killing America. It is killing our children while it is killing our consciences. It began when we took God out of our decision-making and proclaimed that the little beings growing inside of women were “products of conception” and not little girls and little boys. Who should be surprised that we keep pushing the envelope so that now we are aborting these “products of conception” alive? I even work at a hospital named “Christ” that does this very thing! It is beyond me to comprehend that we’re doing what we’re doing now, and so I can’t even imagine what horrible ways we will think of next to torture our children. Please help put an end to this by proclaiming infants as American human being Homo sapiens with the same legal and medical rights that you and I big people have. Thank you.

The Ultimate Rebellion of a Society Against God

The ultimate rebellion of a society against God is killing babies made in the likeness of His image.

The occasion was the sixth day of Creation Week, after God had prepared the earth as a habitation, and after He had created the fish, the birds, and the other animals. These were all created by divine fiat, which means that God commanded (or willed) each event to happen and it was done. In the case of the creation of man, there is a difference. The inspired record reads: ‘And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them’ (Genesis 1:26-27).

Please consider reading the article ’Made in the Image of God’ posted in Answers In Genesis written by Russell M. Grigg

The American Holocaust

More than 48 million babies have been murdered since 1973. Sadly by the agreement of our society.  

Abraham Lincoln in the 19th Century said:
“No one has the right to do what is wrong.” …… even if it is your own body.

    "Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me." Martin Niemoller

    Who will speak for those who can't speak for themselves?

    “Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, ‘But we knew nothing about this’, does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who guards your life know it? Will not He repay each one according to what he has done?” Proverbs 24:11-12
