Freedom to Go 'n Grow Together in Christ
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Psalms 139:13-14 (NIV)
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;
This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live
Deuteronomy 30:19 (NIV)

(03/29/2018) Trump Admin Helps Secure Pro-Life Victory at UN, Prevents Commission on the Status of Women From Promoting Abortion. Not that anything the UN churns out means much. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't do fight on all fronts rather than let the enemy have its way.
(03/26/2018) Judges on “Top Chef” Finale Wear Lapel Pins Supporting Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz. Time for a short rant. In general, progressives are not "punished" for being very vocal and public about their progressive views. Those holding traditional, conservative, Christian views are punished. What is the result? The progressives get bolder and the rest of us get more timid. They are winning, and we are sitting back and letting them do it. Until we fight back, things will only get worse and worse. And it is quite possible to "fight back" in a thoroughly Christian manner. Don't make excuses.
(03/22/2018) CNN Claims Christian Countries Where Abortion is Illegal Hinder Human Progress. Did we expect anything better of CNN?
(03/18/2018) Abortionist: I Cut Unborn Babies’ Cords So They Can’t Scream. How nice.
(03/16/2018) CA Teacher Placed on Leave After Asking if School Would Allow Student Walkout Over Abortion. Why am I not surprised? Only progressive approved protests are permitted. Note that she was placed on leave for merely asking the question.
(03/14/2018) Make a Church Post Satan's Phone Number? This has to do with California requiring that Crisis Pregnancy Centers provide info on where to get an abortion. Did I mention this before? I used to think that we in America were in danger of having God's wrath poured out on us. I was wrong. It has already happened. Read Romans 1 for confirmation.
(03/12/2018) Planned Parenthood Rakes in Taxpayer Dollars. Nothing has changed. When will the GOP show some spine on this? PP pours money into the Democrat coffers and they are well rewarded. Why does the GOP cooperate in this?
(03/04/2018) Abortion Activist Admits in Court She Gave False Testimony Against Pro-Life People She’s Trying to Silence. All is fair when fighting evil pro-life people!
(03/04/2018) Stunning: Google Lists Planned Parenthood as Top Pro-Life Organization. I tried it myself, and Planned Parenthood was listed first. I don't want to get carried away, but those on the Left are generally willing to lie, cheat and steal to get their way because no method is too low down when you are fighting evil - evil being personified by conservatives Christians.
(02/27/2018) Penn State Bans Pro-Life Students From Event With Cecile Richards to Challenge Her on Abortion. Of course. They would want to make someone who made a fortune killing babies to feel uncomfortable.
(02/27/2018) Presbyterian Minister Writes New Book to Make the “Christian Argument for Abortion.” She is PCUSA, which is hardly a surprise, and why my wife and I left the PCUSA years ago. In any case, as far as I can tell from the article, her "case" for abortion doesn't rely very much on the Bible. Given that she has had abortions herself, I cannot help but think she is working hard to justify herself. A far more practical and effective approach would be to simply confess her sin, repent and ask God for forgiveness. Nah. Confessing sin is way too old-fashioned.
(02/24/2018) Gloria Steinem: Without Abortion “There is No Democracy for American Women.” I realize that hyperbole is common in politics, but isn't Steinem past her expiration date?
(02/12/2018) Christian Pastors Bless Late-Term Abortion Clinic and Its Staff, “All They Do is For God’s Glory.” Words fail me. Here is more: Baptist Pastor Prays for Abortion Clinic: “We Sanctify This Space and Honor It as Holy.” At least "Baptist" does not mean "Southern Baptist" in this case.
(02/05/2018) Pro-Life Groups Target ‘Extreme’ Red State Dems. Good.
(01/30/2018) University Professor Promotes Killing Disabled Babies: “Time to Support Eugenic Abortion.” After all, the only reason some of us object to this is that we "want to control women's bodies."
(01/29/2018) Donald Trump Disappointed After Senate Fails to Advance 20-Week Abortion Ban. So am I. But surmounting the filibuster was impossible. Only three Democrats supported the ban, while two Republicans did not. Note that anyone who says there isn't a dime's worth of difference between the parties does not know what they are talking about.
(01/29/2018) Hush, Now. Abortion is not the only issue where the truth is being covered up. But it is a biggie. In the interests of left-wing politics, most women considering an abortion are not presented with the facts concerning how the abortion could affect them, much less information about the baby they are carrying. They are only hit with these negative consequences after the fact - some soon, some much later. It is bad enough that we often refuse to look at readily available information when making decisions. It is far worse when that information is concealed from us.
(01/28/2018) Shocking Poll Shows Majority of Episcopalians, Methodists and Presbyterians Support Abortion. I've started praying for mainline churches such as these to turn back to the Bible. I hope stories like this don't cause me to give up the cause as hopeless.
(01/26/2018) Some Religious Groups Transmit Their Teachings on Abortion Better Than Others. The Catholic Church is probably the most clear in its opposition to abortion, yet 48% of Catholics support abortion! Southern Baptists officially oppose abortion, yet 30% of Southern Baptist favor abortion. That number is pretty shocking to me given that our specific SBC church is specifically opposed, and I know of no members that support abortion. In any case, the article has some interesting numbers, so check it out.
(01/26/2018) Planned Parenthood Leader Getting Out While the Getting’s Good. If this means that bad times are ahead for PP, it is wonderful news.
(01/26/2018) For Proof Abortion Is Inhumane, Look No Further Than Supporters’ Defenses Of Killing Disabled People. Indeed.
(01/25/2018) Colorado Supreme Court Violates State Constitution to Makes Taxpayer Fund Planned Parenthood. Is this surprising?
(01/24/2018) California Senate to Vote on Bill Mandating Abortion Pill Access on Campus. Just who is it that always wants to impose their views on others by force of law?
(01/24/2018) Media Bias: Networks Devote 7x More Coverage to Women’s March Than March for Life. The MSM has always done its best to ignore the March for Life. But given that the country is gradually becoming more pro-life, their efforts will hopefully be in vain.
(01/22/2018) Love Saves Lives. Abortion Ends Them. Does anything more need to be said?
(01/19/2018) Poll: 56% of Americans Say Abortion 'Morally Wrong,' 76% Want Major Restrictions on Abortion. It looks like we are starting to win this war. We cannot let up.
(01/08/2018) Planned Parenthood Unveils Pro-Abortion License Plates: “My Body, My Choice.” Well, I suppose that if we can have "Choose Life" plates ....
(12/29/2017) Feminist Professor Praises 'Happy Abortions' in New Book. Remember Bill Clinton's mantra of "safe, legal and rare?" The Left has determined that only the "legal" part is important.
(12/23/2017) This AMAZING thread on being pro-life is just what you need as we head into the Christmas holiday. Indeed.
(12/19/2017) Planned Parenthood: Christians Should be Forced to Fund Abortions, It’s “Immoral” Not To. I am thinking that PP is starting to panic and overplay their hand.
(12/08/2017) This may be the most MONSTROUS thing Planned Parenthood has EVER tweeted. They say that an abortion is no different than a miscarriage.
(11/29/2017) School Lets Planned Parenthood Push Sex and Abortion on 14-Year-Olds Without Telling Their Parents. Hey, the schools know better what is good for your children than you do. So they think. But they would be wrong.
(11/24/2017) Students at This Catholic University Promote “Sex Week” to Celebrate Abortion. When we look at just where modern sexual mores have gotten us, you would think that colleges, especially religious ones, who be rethinking the whole notion of having "sex weeks."
(11/21/2017) Abortion Clinic Staffer Leaves Work, Drives Up to Praying Pro-Lifers and Says the Most Amazing Thing: “I Quit.”
(11/15/2017) US Bishops Choose Bold Pro-Life Approach. Good. Locally, it is the Catholics that are the leaders in the fight against abortion. But nationally, not as much as they used to. This is a good sign, though the vote was close.
(11/12/2017) OBGYN Claims Life Doesn’t Begin at Conception: “That’s a Religious Definition Not a Scientific One.” Wow. Maybe his fellows from the "party of science" can straighten him out. Then again, probably not.
(11/11/2017) Congressman Shows Ultrasound of 18-Week-Old Unborn Baby During Hearing, Abortion Activists Look Away. Totally understandable. It is hard to maintain the "just a clump of cells" narrative in the face of evidence like this.
(11/08/2017) Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz Refuses to Say If Abortion is Sinful: “Live to Your Own Convictions.” Sad, really. does he really think that the Bible says we are to live to our own convictions?
(10/25/2017) Planned Parenthood: 75% of Our Abortion Clients Don’t Show Up When People are Outside Praying. Good.
(10/21/2017) 'Aborter of 6, Redeemed by Jesus.' Jesus can and does turn broken lives around.
(10/20/2017) What's Progressive about Abortion? This is a good article on the history of abortion. It is no surprise that abortion and the "sexual revolution" go hand in hand, and part of the package is a rejection of traditional Judeo-Christian values. Why do progressives love abortion so? Because they don't want people to "suffer" for making poor personal choices. Of course, if people don't suffer the consequences of making poor choices, then they will make even more poor choices. One reason American culture has been spiraling down for so long is that we have demanded that the government not only help us avoid the consequences of poor choices, but to positively reward us (welfare being a case in point - but there are more examples).
(10/18/2017) Actress Kathleen Turner: Pro-Lifers “Attack Women’s Rights Without Any Regard to Science.” I don't think that word ("science") means what she thinks it means. For the Left, "science" is nothing but a word to be tossed out there when you can't make your argument on rational grounds. Note that they rarely ever tell us how science actually supports their point of view.
(10/17/2017) This Pro-Abortion Fanatic Presented A Thought Experiment 'DESTROYING' Pro-Lifers. Here Are 4 Reasons He Fails Dramatically. Sometimes we know the right position on an issue, but defending it in the context of a biased "thought experiment" might be difficult for us. Read this and you will not only have some good ammunition for this particular case, but a good approach to deal with similar ones. Update: Here's The Reason Why Pro-Aborts Rely On Worst Case Scenarios To Argue Their Point. Another really good one.
(10/17/2017) Abortionist Uses Biblical Parable of The Good Samaritan to Defend Doing Abortions. It s bad enough to be performing abortions, but to misuse the Bible to justify it makes it far, far worse. Claiming that God approves?!? Well, many in the LGBT crowd do the same. It is nothing new - think justifying slavery.
(10/11/2017) Planned Parenthood Spends Almost 10X More Money Buying Political Influence Than the NRA. And PP gets an excellent return an excellent return on that investment, namely $500 million a year from the federal government. I'm not sure that the NRA gets any federal money at all.
(10/10/2017) ACLU Sues to Force Every Pharmacy in America to Sell the Abortion Drug to Kill Babies. This is what I hate about the Left. It isn't enough to be able to do what they wish or to buy what they wish, they feel compelled to compel everyone else to go along. Tolerant? They aren't tolerant. "Love Trumps Hate?" They only love those that agree with them.
(10/09/2017) Former Abortion Workers Will Bring Down the Abortion Industry. I wish. They certainly have a story to tell, but the media is unlikely to listen to it, much less promote it.
(10/04/2017) Late Abortion Bill Deserves a Straight Up or Down Vote in the Senate. I'd love for it to pass, but the Democrats will likely filibuster. Bill Clinton may have lied when he said he wanted abortion to be "safe, legal and rare," but at least the Democrats paid lip service to the notion that abortion was not good. The following better represents the Democrat party today - Abortion Activist: We Need to “Normalize” Killing Babies in Abortions.
(10/01/2017) Abortion Activist Refuses to Believe This Picture of an Unborn Baby is Real. For many, denial of reality is essential in supporting their worldview.
