The experience outside a Planned Parenthood outpost that saved the lives of two unborn babies

Yesterday, TheBlaze’s faith editor Billy Hallowell published an original story about a young Arizona mother, Rebecca Rizzi, who had made the decision to abort her baby until an experience outside Planned Parenthood changed her mind. On tonight’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn spoke to an emotional Rebecca and Sherry Pierce of “Refuge in the Desert” ministry, who was the woman who ultimately helped her decide not to terminate her pregnancy.

Despite her qualms about abortion, early last year, Rebecca found herself five weeks pregnant and feeling as though she had no other options. She decided to make an appointment at a Planned Parenthood in Tempe, Arizona last May to learn more about the procedure. She arrived at the clinic to find pro-life protestors standing outside.While she knew the protestors’ message about the sanctity of life was true, she chose to enter the clinic anyway.

Over the course of the next hour, as Rebecca anxiously waited for her appointment, doubt crept into her mind as she could hear the group spreading their message outside the building. Feeling as though she couldn’t go through with the abortion, she walked outside to take a break and that’s when she encountered Sherry, one of the protesters with the “Refuge in the Desert” ministry.

Rebecca explained to Glenn why Sherry and her group’s message resonated so deeply with her:

As it turns out, Rebecca was pregnant with twins. And while she initially considered giving her babies up for adoption, she ultimately decided to raise the children on her own. She has kept in touch with Sherry throughout the remainder of her pregnancy and since the birth of her beautiful little girls, Olivia Grace and Kara Shea.

Olivia and Kara joined their mom and Sherry during the interview, as Glenn explained his family’s own experience with another courageous young mother:

    We approach the 41st year of witnessing 1.2 million children per year murdered in the USA. That’s over 40 million children. The total is approaching the entire death total of WWII (combatants AND civilians). Abortion is a Lie. The deceived believe death is the solution to their fears and desires. What master lies behind convincing the younger of us to kill the most innocent and the youngest of us? Convincing the younger of us to believe that a human is not a human. Convincing the younger of us to fund, march for, celebrate, reward and honor those who have chosen death over life. Convincing the younger of us that another person’s “legalized” death is preferable to inconvenience and to “choice”. They have arguments and endless “no-win” scenarios all designed to add to the “hopelessness” of the situation. They will not harbor life as a solution to their desires. To add to the insanity, the younger of us may have an excuse — they will point to their elders and proclaim that the elders said it was OK, that it was a “right”. We taught them and encouraged this Evil. They would be correct. The elders have no excuse. There was a world before Roe vs. Wade and some people still remember that world. That world had its problems, injustices, Evil and more. Today we have problems, injustices, Evil and more.

    At the end it comes down to a belief that someone else’s life is less precious, less equal and less worthy than their own, that we can choose to be God, arbitrarily choosing and permitting life and death. We are no better than the ancient peoples.

    And we wonder why things seem so wrong.

    No woman wants to terminate a pregnancy. Let’s just face that fact. But a pregnancy remains a woman’s private business and that’s reasonable in a nation that’s not a theocracy. It’s also why the medical procedure of terminating a pregnancy is legal, and will stay legal. Conservatives who continue to fight this lost battle will continue to lose elections. It’s just that simple. Pick your battles wisely because there’s much more at stake than this issue.

    An unborn fetus is not a child. Be honest for a change. Be realistic for a change. Or you can keep campaigning for Hillary Clinton in 2016 to be the first female president.

  • Adam

    This story is the reward for buying an annual blaze subscription I normally never have time to use. My name is Adam I was born on 1/1/74 to an amazing young g-d fearing girl whose courage I celebrate each new year, just hit 40. She put me up for adoption and g-d found me my 2 angels my Mom & Dad. My birth mother and I reunited when I was in my 20s in a twist of circumstances too long for this comment but it was made possible by my now deceased half sister. My angels brought me home to an older brother who was also adopted in 71 so he was before roe v wade. We were raised as Jews. G-d finally rewarded my angels with a son of their own my younger brother Josh, a miracle since Mom was not supposed to be able to bear children. As for me I found a great girl I married and we have a 2 year old named Hope and a boy on the way…my oldet brother had a boy and later twins boy and girl so im an uncle many times over…blaze secret were naming my son to be Thomas!! ; after you know who;….I just thanked my birth mother again this new year because of her brave decision it not just saved me it allowed so many people joy and happiness. I prayed that some young girl walking into planned parenthood would stop and turn around and wrote a text to saying that exactly…..don’t know when the girl in this story turned around but wow did this give me goosebumps. Its good to be alive and as I grow older I feel more compelled than ever to share to hopefully save another life and expand the joy of life and happiness not delete it. I hope someone shares this testimony with another scared young girl….it IS a life I’m Adam and I can assure you every single scenerio I could have had would have been better than death.

    Registered Democrats living on public assistance are still people, right? Is it not still sad when a person from this group dies, whatever the reason?

    If you don’t want to get pregnant, there is no excuse to end up that way! So many free birth control options, there is no reason to become pregnant on “Accident”. That’s a bunch of BS. Abortion is the same as first degree murder. Just my opinion.

  • Marina Alexis

    I’m so happy I kept my baby. I couldn’t live with the fact of killing a child and not only that but MY child. my own blood! yes its legal just like alcohol and marijuana. The government allows you to harm your body. and because of people who are selfish abortion will stay legal. People who are for it are basically saying “Go ahead and spread your legs sweetheart, there are people here for you after you’re done being irresponsible” God doesn’t make mistakes. If he wants you to have a baby he will give you one. It’s okay though, they will have a meeting with God after death.

    Why is it that if scientists find evidence of a one-celled organism on Mars they will declare it “LIFE!” … and yet, here in America, an entity with billions of cells, hands feet eyes and skin is NOT considered life just because it hasn’t fully grown yet inside a womb?

    Why is it that we are protecting a woman’s choice …. except NOT the choice of the living organism inside her? Nobody asked the fetus if it wanted to be aborted or not! What about the choice of the fetus? Who speaks for them? What about the fetus’ “private business” i.e. its right to live?

    Lib-progs like to spout off about “what about rape and incest?” and the reply is this: Obviously you know the moment it happens if it’s rape or incest. Rape and incest are crimes, and should be punishable to the fullest extent of the law. However, the pregnant mother in this case does NOT have to wait seven months before they decide to abort the fetus … Quite simply, in these cases of rape and incest why wait until month 7? Month 6, 5, 4, 3, or even 2? In the case of rape or incest, there is absolutely no reason for waiting to decide to abort the baby at month 6. You’ve already made your “choice” by then.

    Similarly, in the circumstance of VOLUNTARY intercourse, the father and mother (both!) have already made their “choice” in either having unprotected sex — OR — having sex at all in the first place! Remember your health classes from 6th grade: There’s no such thing as 100% risk-proof intercourse! It’s fun and it’s natural and it’s a good thing but — by doing it — you have already DECIDED to risk having a baby.

    The tides are turning and America is waking up to the tragedy of Planned Parenthood and the murder industry (abortionists) as a whole. Pick which side you’re on (life … or murder) because there’s much more at stake on this issue.

    All of the people who support abortion have already been born. If you are willing to devalue someone else’s life you automatically devalue your own because whatever you decide you can do to anyone someone can do to you.

  • raindear

    B D, you do realize that a fetus is separate entity with it’s own individual specific DNA. And while it may rely on the mother for housing and food, it’s still individual. With advances in science and medicine I can imagine, one day they may be able to transfer a pregnancy to another person or apparatus. What would be your argument then, if say, it didn’t need that specific mother? That would be a suitable resolution, yes? But somehow, I think you would argue that it’s her child she should say whether it lives or dies, right? You seem to believe that one individuals right to life trumps another’s right to life, but that is wrong in every other instance but that of an unborn child. And what about fathers what about their rights?

  • clk

    Every woman who chooses to terminate a pregnancy wants to terminate that pregnancy or she would not be voluntarily aborting the pregnancy. It solves her problem of having a child when she doen’t want one.
    It’s murder in my non-theological view.

  • Becky Maurer

    My husband and I would give anything for a baby. The US makes it so hard to adopt and the paperwork is long and tedious. I wish they would make it easy to adopt….or more give their babies to families who would love and care for them than abort them….God has a plan i just Don’t know what.

    People never think of the lives that never become because of an Abortion. Look at the generations that blossomed because of your moms fear of the Lord. By the way that fear is a good fear to have.

  • Christine Stevens

    Yes it is. My son was no less my son when he was still inside me. It is no different than all of the stages a human goes through on their journey to adulthood. Fetus to infant to toddler to child, etc. A person is a person. To have an abortion a human must be killed. I am not religious but I know that killing another human is wrong. Beyond that, most young girls believe the lies they are told. It’s just a lump of cells. No, at even 6 weeks the baby has a heart beat, by 8 weeks the baby has tiny little fingers. I Learned the truth when I became pregnant and saw what the baby actually is. Prior to that I believed the bs that it was OK early on because it’s just a lump of cells. You were given a chance to live but are perfectly fine stealing another’s. Murder is wrong and it doesn’t matter which stage of development the human that you are killing is in.

    There are people who are victims of rape before they are sexually active even….like at twelve. I happened to be fifteen. I am extreemly pro life, even in the case of rape and incest. I can speak to this from experience. These women need the compassion of Jesus from us, not our judgmental hatred….

    The text above says the woman was 5 months pregnant, but in the video Rebecca says she was five weeks. I thought it was worth noting as even some pro-choicers that would support a medical abortion at 5 weeks would be against aborting a 5 month old baby.

    I had an abortion. I’m not proud of it and its something I don’t talk about often. I did it because I was alone. I was young and I had no one. I lived with my boyfriend and had a job that paid minimum wage. I was going to college full time and my mom had left me states away for her new boyfriend. I got pregnant and my bf ordered me to get an abortion. I didn’t want it but I didn’t know how I could support myself and my child. I thought about adoption but my bf didn’t want that either and I didn’t want him to hate me. I cried and cried afterwards I felt hollow and I hated myself and my bf for it. We got engaged less than a year later but I called it off. How could I wake up everyday to the person that didn’t want our baby? I was mad at him mad at myself and the world. I left him and went thru two years of self-destruction. I drank to much partied to much and didn’t care about myself. Looking back all I needed was one person who would have listened and showed me that I could have done it. I could have adopted my child and someone would have helped me to find a way to support myself without my bf. Just one person! I was young I didn’t know all the help they have and had out there. I’m sorry and now that its been over ten years ago I have a beautiful five year old that I look at wonder how I could have let someone else talk me into destroying life. There are no mistakes. Life is beautiful! I’m sorry and I’m sorry to my unborn child. We can change abortion laws by educating young girls. We can show them there is a way. They are doing it because they feel helpless and alone. They are scared of ending up homeless with a child in some cases. We don’t change this by protesting we change it by giving hope. By opening our arms out. Love changes things

    I usually stay out of these discussions. However, on the note of pubic assistance I object
    to those choice of words. I was a mother at the ages of 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, and 28. Yes, you counted right. I have 6 boys and a girl. I chose to keep everyone of my kids. Even though I was a teen mother, it isn’t what MTV shows. Keep the life that you make is a mind set. There are people out there that tell everyone what they want to hear. Not by what’s right. I believe in the saying God doesn’t give you more than what you can’t handle. The moral of my testimony is, I have never been one to judge, for that is not my right. Yet, as a mother of 7 children, I was always a hard working mother. My husband was almost killed in Afghanistan in 2011. I now take care of the kids, my mother, and my disabled husband. We had to go on public assistance. We don’t choose the life we are given, but have to live it as it comes. So, I find the usage of public assisted babies offensive. Oh and for the message above saying only rape or insest, I belong in both those categories, but I chose not to live a sad life and use that as excuse to make my choices seem right, by what I do in life. I read a thing on Facebook the other day. We do not determine a person is dead until their heart stops beating. So what gives us the right to stop it and take their life away?

    It absolutely is a child! It is unbelievable to me that you can be far enough along to hear the child’s heartbeat and feel him kick and still legally terminate a pregnancy, its even more unfathomable to me that people can feel a baby kick and still view it as anything other than a human being.

  • Wayne Moore

    I would go a bit further, in saying that even rape and incest don’t justify it.
    I can see it in the case where the mother’s life is legitimately threatened. It simply does not make sense to allow it to continue when two people will die instead of just one, who would have died anyway. Save what life you can and mourn the one you can’t.
    But when pregnancy won’t harm the woman, it does not matter the reason. Just ask this woman:

    On the one hand, long and tedious paperwork is a small price to pay for someone who really is desperate to have a child.
    On the other hand, you’re right. It does need to be made easier. My wife and I have tried numerous times over the years, but have never managed to complete the process due to the unnecessarily convoluted bureaucratic nonsense and required in-person interviews and such. I was a truck driver for years, and am now in the Army, so I haven’t had anything like a regular schedule, to be able to go through the process. Also, I am a gun owner, and that pretty much stops the process cold, in a lot of places.

    Too bad a baby can’t choose its womb.

  • http://rightontheleftcoast.wordpress.com/ Anonymous

    I will have to respectfully disagree with you on this point. The real choice in reproductive rights lies in choosing whether or not to engage in an act that may result in a pregnancy. That is a choice that carries consequences, and those consequences come with the inherent responsibility of harboring another life until it is ready to survive on its own.
    Victims of rape do not get that choice. Personally, I don’t think I would choose to terminate a pregnancy if I were raped, but who can say for certain what they can handle after such an event. But, that being said, if a rape victim chooses to terminate the pregnancy, it should be done immediately after the rape, as in report it to the police then go straight to the hospital, not six months after the fact.

    Funny thing is, if the pregnancy was terminated, they would’ve gone straight to Heaven according to the evangelicals. Hey, let’s face it. Someone’s religious beliefs never give them the right to interfere with a stranger’s life when it comes to something as personal as a woman’s pregnancy.

    Regardless in English we use the name God to describe the creator the same way we use the name Jesus to describe his Son. The Hebrew YHWH or YHVH is suppose to be his name. In Scripture many names are use to describe his attributes. We use the name Jesus which is just an English name used to describe the Son of God. His Hebrew name is Yeshua and Greek his name is Iesous. Which is correct? it depends on the language you use.

    Women get rid of eggs all the time in the form of menstruation. Those eggs are from the woman own DNA. When conception happens the DNA from the egg combines with the DNA from the sperm.

    Rape and incest would pretty much be the only time I could accept the validity of psychological harm to the mother being a medically acceptable reason for terminating a pregnancy. And if it were the case that abortion were only legal for cases of rape, incest, or medical necessity, it would hardly ever happen, which is how it should be.
    If a woman were legally required to carry her rapist’s child to term, that would necessitate a serous reworking of custody laws in a majority of states. As it stands, in many places, it’s possible for a rapist to get off with a slap on the wrist and then sue for visitation rights, which is not a hypothetical situation.
    If you truly want to change abortion laws to limit abortions of convenience, then you simply can’t group them together with rape and incest. It will NEVER happen. No court or state in the union will ever vote to criminalize abortion for rape victims, and the pro-abortion crowd will keep using this issue to keep abortion legal 100% of the time.

Like so many others, you have no truth or argument — nothing else worth saying… so you resort to childishness….Laws can and are changed — a pregnancy is a life, a live child….trying to call it something different doesn’t change the facts… I feel for you– what must your life be like if you are so bitter and hateful….

  • Wayne Moore

    It’s not so hypothetical. It has happened, and the rapist has been granted visitation.

    The pro-life crowd does not put blame for the crime of the father on the child.
    If you recognize that a fetus is human, then you must recognize that it has human rights.
    It does not have the right to kill another human, and that is half of the justification for emergency abortion, but it has every other right that any other human has, including the right to live, unless it has committed a heinous crime, which, I assure, a fetus has not.

    We do not execute children for their fathers’ crimes – hell, we rarely execute the criminal!
    The mother will survive, and usually can go on to a relatively normal life. No trauma victim is ever the same, after the event. It is absurd to claim that that is possible.
    On the other hand, if you read the stories by the women on this site:

    http://www.rebeccakiessling.com/index.html

    You will learn just how “horribly” these women have been “scarred for life” by conception by rape.

    If you still believe that rape is good justification, I challenge you to go to the site and tell these women that they or their children should never have been born because there was a chance that someone may possibly have been so absorbed in herself that she couldn’t see past their (or their children’s) humanity, and proceeded to get on with her life.

YOu know Hell is Judeo-Christian , correct?? and Judeo Christian says killing a child is murder…if you want to know who will be going to hell — I suggest you check behind the knives and scalpels in the abortion clinics….

  • Wayne Moore

    “god” (small g) is a noun denoting any being purported to have supernatural abilities. Even God Himself uses this word (in the English translations, at any rate) when referring to the gods of other nations (baal, ashtoreth, and so on)
    “God” (capital G) refers to the one we recognize as the only “god” that truly exists.

    The actual Name is given in scripture, though even there, it is usually substituted with another word, such as “LORD” (usually spelled all capitals.)

    The point is that in English, neither “god” nor “God” is a proper name. We capitalize God for the same reason we capitalize He, Him, His, and so on, when referring to Him.

    In many cultures, a name is a sacred thing. In some cultures, a person chooses his own name and never reveals it to anybody. In others, it is extremely rude to use a person’s name unless you are invited to do so. Remember the days – before the liberals got hold of our schools – when children called adults “Mr.” or “Mrs.” _____ (last name) and never by the first name?

    There are plenty of names by which we know God, e.g. Adonai, Elohim, Elah, usually describing one facet of His being, and Jews call Him as Hashem, when speaking about Him in the third person, but only one was given to Moses as the Name.
    I never use that one unless I am on my knees and speaking directly to Him, and even then, never out loud!

  • B D

    Well, perhaps your friends should be more careful and use birth control then. Right Ashlie? And here’s a little something for you to think about. Perhaps some protests should be organized outside of every tax-free church in the country, protesting that special tax-free status. That’s a great idea. It’s against realist’s outlook on the world to grant tax free status to clubs that call themselves religions. Great idea.

    I guess the local mission that goes out in trucks and distributes food to 3000 people a week … and the crisis pregnancy center that also distributes diapers and other baby needs to young mothers … that my church supports, was unavailable for your cartoon.

    So typical, of Progressive shallowness and intellectual dishonesty.

    Our problem with welfare isn’t a lack of compassion … our problem is your insistence that government … which can ONLY hand out money and platitudes; and even then waste four-fifths of the money allocated on bureaucracy that is incapable of even telling apart those in need from those merely in want of an easy way out … be funded as the EXCLUSIVE caregiver for our less fortunate.

    And we know why Progressives insist on it … it is an easy way to jam one’s socio-economic morality down the throats of everyone else.

    And I’d wager that you are so self-assured in your beliefs, that you have no problem with using the coercive force of law to jam your morality down our throats, with a fundamentalist zeal that makes fire-and-brimstone Baptists look like loose-topped libertines out for beads at Mardi Gras.

    But life, being an unalienable right, IS an area where government has oversight responsibility.

    It goes beyond personal, when another life is involved.

    The real question is, what defines the line between a protected life and mere tissue? You and other pro-aborts seek to set that line on an arbitrary basis, as opposed to recognizing that life is a continuum from conception to death and using those points as the dividing lines.

    Be careful what you ask for … arbitrarily defining those lines to respect a “personal” decision means that they can be moved/replicated even for the convenience of others … and since your family and/or society may find you “inconvenient” at some time in your life, this is a precedent that you might not want to be setting.

    You have no right to use the coercive force of law to jam your definition “right, decent, commons sense” down our throats – including the unborn – as the One and Only True Way as though you are as omniscient as God.

    Except when it has to be done to save the LIFE (not merely the “health”, which is a definition that is easily folded/spindled/mutilated into justifying convenience) of the mother.

    My daughter-in-law, and grandson, faced that situation last year – fortunately, they were able to deliver, two months early, when her life was threatened by a condition derived from the pregnancy. After 58 days in the NICU, he came home and is now doing quite fine, as is his mom.

    Again, never say never.

    Here are some anecdotal observations, as a designer of electronic equipment for the last 30 years.

    A lot of my work involves working around the effects of natural processes, by selecting/derating/protecting the components I use so my designs function over their desired lifetime.

    While I can’t prove this mathematically, I have repeatedly observed how natural processes tend to move matter towards, as I like to put it, diamonds or dust … stasis, without dynamic behavior … or chaos, without order.

    Only through my intelligent intervention have I been able to even slow down these processes enough, to deliver products that combine order and dynamic capability in order to function over the lifetime expected by their users.

    The one set of natural processes that is the exception … that produces ordered dynamism over significant periods of time … is life. And like my designs, it is not immune to the trend down to diamonds or dust … otherwise we would have no need of doctors, or undertakers.

    Yet it is continually initiated and sustained, without the need for people like me to control that process. And it exhibits many innovative ideas that also make it exceptional … from the capillary system of a plant that provides nourishment to it without pumps and valves, to the human hand with its opposable thumb and precise feedback of touch.

    I see all that as evidence that there is another intelligence involved, just as I am involved with my own “creations” (actually, rearrangements of existing matter) to establish and maintain such ordered dynamism.

    Can I conclusively prove the existence of this Designer? No … but I think there is a good reason He stays in the shadows: were conclusive proof of that Designer to become available to us, that knowledge would override our free will, like having a parent in the back seat when you went on a date as a teenager.

    We would be reduced to robots … not living souls, with the freedom to choose to love that Designer and our fellow souls … were we to have that proof.

    OTOH, where is your conclusive proof that this Designer does not exist?

    Without that proof, you are operating in a faith more blind than mine: faith in the omniscience of selected members of the human species, to the degree they can accurately and completely perceive the Universe around them.

    And if you are operating on faith … why should YOU get a pass on the Establishment Clause, and have EXCLUSIVE access to our public institutions to promote your FAITH as the One and Only True Way?

    There are many stories that are like yours Adam, but unfortunately there are still so many more that don’t get to have a story like yours. I know that many people believe it is young girls, when in fact the highest number of abortions come from women 25 to 30. Very very few abortions are the result from a sexual crime, such as rape and sexual abuse. They use it as a convenient form of birth control, instead of using pre-pregnancy birth control contraceptives. The laws have given permission to women to kill their children, instead of taking responsibility for their actions. I have often heard it referred to as the “cowards way out” of bad situation, much like suicide committed by a criminal. The only difference is the child is the one being condemned for nothing more than just being created. Your birth mother was brave, courageous and (I believe) guided by God to see that you were born and given to parents who would love you and raise you to be a fine human being. God bless you! (which it looks like he already has)

    I think women have the right to do what they want with their bodies. But if they want an abortion sooooo bad, why not get a clothes hanger and do the job themselves? Instead, abortionists ask for MY tax payer money to do something I despise. If it’s none of my business what women do with their own bodies, it should stand to reason that none of my money should be stolen from me in order to fund what they do. 98% of rape cases are just women who got pregnant and decided later that it was a mistake to have sex. Only 2% of abortions are for incest, rape, and medical complications due to pregnancies, COMBINED. In the case of a rape, I think that the abortion is only applicable if the rapist is actually convicted in the court of law and not simply accused.

    I believe because I seen proof of God. I believe because ever since I turn my back on atheists and atheism he has guided me to others who need help and even shown me how to do it. You see the reason why you cannot believe in a God or will never see the proof is because you refuse the possibility of something bigger than you. All liberal atheism is based on is self. That is why you liberal atheist support things like Socialism and abortion because all you see is yourself. How are you to know about God if you are too obsessed with yourself to care to look.

    Interestingly enough, “Jesus” is not an accurate English translation. Notice the “sus” ending which matches the Pagan deities names… Zeus, Dionysus, etc. The J also didnt exist until the 15th century. In vain means “cast to ruin.” Jesus was a name assigned to messiah that drew on Pagan roots, like so much of Christianity is today, because it was easier to draw in the Pagans this way. But it was a huge dishonor to Elohim, as over 7,000 times in scripture, as well as one of his direct commandments, was regarding his name. Transliterated, in English, the closest we can get is Yahuah for the father and Yahusha or the son.

    Our ways are not his ways… he specifically mentions his name in scripture more than 7000 times. Humans changed it. In fact, he has made a point that in order to know him, we may only be sanctified by his name and following his commands. Transliterated, Yahuah and Yahusha in English.

    What B.D. fails to notice is that many atheist women get pregnant out of wedlock, keep their baby under financial duress, and marry the father of the baby. It had nothing to do with religion, the mothers in this case just simply valued human life. By the way, I’m a Christian and I support your right to be an atheist without persecution. You are a human and your life is important.

    I have a very close friend who’s father raped his mother, and thus he was conceived. I know for a fact that to this day both he and his mother are very happy that she didn’t abort the child and neither of them see abortion as anything but murder under all circumstances. A child born of rape is not guilty of their parents’ sin. Abortion is either murder or it is not. Do you justify the murder of the rapist? I think not. How much more wrong is it then that the child conceived of such circumstances be murdered?

    As correct as you are I don’t feel Yahway is worried about name as much as our love and service to HIm. He knows the heart and its intent. We are still human and we are prone to error at even the most simplest thing. Since we don’t have the record of His actual name or how it is pronounced, we must go with what we have. I think the best name to describe Him is “I Am that I Am”.

    First of all, don’t use quotes if the person you are replying to never said the things you’re quoting. I never used “horribly” or “scarred for life”. You can’t make a valid point with dishonesty.
    I never said that all victims of rape should have an abortion, not once, nor did I imply it. I never said that the children you are referring to should never have been born. I applaud the women who were strong enough to bear those children. But the reason it is a noble act is that they chose to bear them, not that they were forced to do it.
    Your last reply is the reason that young women are being driven away from the Republican party in droves. You are seriously advocating for a situation where men can forcibly impregnate a woman, get a slap on the wrist, and then force that women to bring the resultant child for visits for the next 18 years. This is unacceptable. I’m truly sorry that you feel that the trauma a woman experiences after rape is just self-absorption.
    To be clear, in this scenario, a rape victim should immediately report the crime to the police and then head straight to the hospital, as within 24 hours. This is not me advocating for women to come in to a police station 3 months pregnant and claim they were raped to get a free abortion.

  • Linus77

    The tradition is that God put strict requirements on how and who could write His name. He has many names, and when referring to Him, the utmost respect and honor is to be used. When the priests were copying His commandments and laws, when they got to His name, they had to wash themselves, use an unused utensil to write with, along with fresh ink. When they were finished writing the name, they had to destroy the utensil and ink and rewash. Any document that had His name had to be kept pure. If any stains, wear and tear, or any type of uncleanliness touched it, the entire document had to be destroyed completely. It was decided to not use His name, and to leave out letters when referring to Him so they do not risk dishonoring or sinning against Him.

    That’s a mean and idiotic comment to make.

    Actually, a child would wreak havoc on woman’s uterus from the inside. A fetus is the correct terminology in this case. And I agree, a woman’s pregnancy is a medical condition and as such, it is her private business.

  • Dr. DeRouchie

    A egg fertilized by a sperm is called a zygote until it reaches the uterus 4 day later, where it can freely float for 48 hours until it implants itself to the wall of the uterus. At that point it’s called an embryo. At week 6, the embryo is about 1/5 of an inch in length. A primitive heart is beating at that point.

    I can’t imagine having to live with such a nightmare of having an abortion. I can’t imagine what one of my good friends goes through everyday of her life, knowing that her and her husband had their first child executed. I know that not a day goes by that she doesn’t beat herself up, not a day goes by they she doesn’t feel the sting of guilt. She will have to die feeling that sting, it will never go away no matter how good of a parent she is now, and she knows that. Planned parenthood convinces these women, as they convinced my friend and all of the young women of my generation that this was all about “not being told what to do with our own bodies” and that’s all that mattered. Nobody ever told us that we would have to live with the fact that we sacrificed our own flesh and blood sons or daughters for trivial and selfish reasons.
    It’s difficult to imagine in the day and age we live in, with all of our medicines and treatments, with all of our wealth and excess….. that unborn children are still being ripped apart in their mothers womb by the millions as a form of birth control. Even worse, it’s a political thing……not a human life, political. How tragic.

    I’m not even saying change laws, but I will say this coming from experience the abortion clinics the doctors don’t give a damn about these girls, the children that are dying or th consequences of the events. Maybe just some mandatory pre-counseling, covering option and giving people choices, cause Im sure a lot of girls don’t feel like they have a choice. Does anybody realize the psychological damage it does for a woman. It took me over 15 years to have a child not cause of trying but because I felt that I didn’t deserve to be a mom. The only people that walk away undamaged are the men that just think it’s a hastle. I hear everyone calling these women murderurs but what about the men, are they not responsible as well? Where was their support.

    Yeah, you dummies a “fetus” isn’t a child. It isn’t a dog or a cat or a bunny rabbit either but anyway……..it isn’t human. Fetus isn’t actually a “species” but it isn’t human because calling it human might give some sqeamish folks the crazy idea that something is wrong with killing it right??
    It isn’t human until it comes out of it’s mother and a light flashed, an angel choir sings and WHAM!!!! Just like that, human! POP, BANG TAHHH DAHHH HUMAN!! Totally wasn’t human 20 minutes earlier when it was on the inside of the mother, even though absolutely no physical change took place……..doesn’t matter, on the inside it isn’t human.
    I mean, so NOT HUMAN that you can suck it’s insides apart and take it’s life with no giving of choice and that murder…UH…I mean parental choice is perfectly legit.

    You can’t really be this stupid, can you BD? I don’t know if it’s stupidity, or that you want to make something so indefensible okay so very bad that you are willing to convince yourself of anything. You try to convince others because it helps validate your argument. Anyone with any frame of mind understands that a living thing doesn’t became another living thing entirely just because it changes locations. Educated people know that there is no species called “fetus”. There are stages of a human beings life cycle, but none of those stages make that human cease to exist other than death. Your anger comes from the weakness of your own argument.

    People don’t get it because it is horrifically wrong, BD. No, decent people cannot mind their own business when it comes to the unecessary murder of millions of children, and it doesn’t matter who’s committing it. And you know what else, abortion loses public support everyday and we grow as a people and become more and more compassionate in our nature. There will come a day that abortion is just another embarrassing scar on the human race.

    I don’t really know what taxing non profit organizations has to do with any of this, (it wouldn’t surprise me though) but I’m sure the churches will march on non the less. I hate to burst your bubble.

  • russellmuscle1

    When I was in school Dr., the argument we were taught was “nobody has the right to tell us what to do with our bodies”. Nothing, Dr, nothing and no argument you can come up with trumps the taking of a human life. If it’s simply a matter between physician and patient, does that logic go for any medical matter? Does it go for people who refuse cancer treatment for their dying children because they believe that God will save their child? The public gets pretty involved in those cases. Does it go for those Dr.’s who routinely write dangerous, addictive prescriptions to their patients with no real medical call for doing so? Most of those patients would certainly not want intervention because they want to continue getting that prescription every month. What about careless Dr.’s who harm their patients?
    You are saying that there should never be intervention between a doctor and a patient. Can you apply that logic all the time, or just when it suits your argument?

  • russellmuscle1

    LOL Great come back.

  • russellmuscle1

    Yes, but the embryo or fetus never ceases to be human. It is a human embryo, it is a human fetus……..it is always human. A viable human fetus will become a human man or women 100% of the time. However, that isn’t the best argument anyway because abortion is usually legal up until 20 weeks of pregnancy. Most women do not know that they are pregnant in those very early stages.

  • russellmuscle1

    Oh so now it’s a medical condition? LOL. I’ve also heard parasite and bodily fluid before. I heard one poster on another site once refer to unborn children as something like livestock, which we can kill at our leisure.
