News From the Front Line
For those who do not know, October is the month that 40 Days for Life runs every day. 40 days is an effort of prayer and fasting for the end of abortion in the United States. One of the lies that abortion advocates use is that everyone has a choice and that choice must be respected. This is all good so long as the only choice being offered up is from Planned Parenthood. If you offer another option, they show their true colors.
Recently in Tucson, a mobile ultrasound bus was brought down from Phoenix and parked across the street from the local abortion mill. The organizers made sure they had all their permits, licenses, etc and that parking the bus was legal. A sign on or near the bus said, "Free Pregnancy Tests". The first person to come out was the Principal at a local school near the abortion mill. She insisted that the bus could not park their and that it must be moved at once. The organizer of the event showed her all the applicable permits and said that the bus was not moving. She stormed away in a huff.
Next, someone from the abortion mill came across the street and also insisted that the bus be moved. Again, the organizer showed all the applicable permits and calmly stated that the bus was not moving. The debate from the abortion mill worker became increasingly nasty and the organizer said, "maybe you should bring your Rabbi, pastor or priest and we can reach an agreement". She stormed away, saying I don't have one.
The first woman who showed up at the bus came over to get a free pregnancy test. She was going into the abortion mill but they charge for the test, so the free test sign caught her eye. One thing that needs to be said is that the inside of the bus is specifically non religious or anti-abortion. There are no signs, no literature, etc talking about the evil of abortion. A nurse administered the test which turned out to be positive and offered up an ultra-sound. Two heartbeats were detected on the ultrasound. The mother of the twins said, I guess I have to make a decision if I want to be mother to twins. The nurse told her, "Either way, you will still be a mother to twins". The women looked up, smiled and said, "You're right."
That's where the story ends. No one knows if she went forward with an abortion or kept her twins. The question that I have to ask is "What's wrong with this service?" Why are the abortion mills afraid of informed consent? I believe it is much easier to kill a blob of tissue than it is to kill an unborn baby.
Consider this statement, "An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and your health". ---1962 Planned Parenthood brochure. See picture at hyperlink
It is interesting that once the abortion mills started making millions of dollars, the statement that abortion kills the life of a baby disappeared.
Christ, speaking to the Pharisees said, "Yee are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father yee will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth because there was no truth in him. He speaketh a lie; he speaketh his own; For he is a liar and the father thereof."
The same can be said about the abortion industry. As mentioned above, Planned Parenthood said abortion kills a baby. Now, it's not a baby, rather a mass of tissue. How about these items:
- I said I was gang raped, but I lied; I said I didn't know who the father was, but I did; I said I hated my baby, but I didn't. - Norma McCorvey, aka Jane Roe from Roe v Wade.
- "We spoke of 5,000 - 10,000 deaths per year from illegal abortions. I confess that I knew that figure was totally false. It was a useful figure, widely accepted. So why go out of our way to correct it with honest statistics." - Bernard Nathanson, founder of NARAL
"Yee are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father yee will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth because there was no truth in him. He speaketh a lie; he speaketh his own; For he is a liar and the father thereof."
