Hard to Look at Isn’t It?

This is  photo of aborted baby parts from 6-13 weeks old.  Babies are to be protected not thrown away like trash.

Please don’t have an abortion. There is help for you to keep your baby. There is also adoption.

You don’t want THIS on your conscience!!!!!

The Unborn – A Timeline

Fetal Development
From conception to birth

Day 1:  fertilization: all human chromosomes are present; unique human life begins.

Day 6:  embryo begins implantation in the uterus.

Day 22:  heart begins to beat with the child’s own blood, often a different type than the mothers’.

Week 3:  By the end of third week the child’s backbone spinal column and nervous system are forming.  The liver, kidneys and intestines begin to take shape.

Week 4:  By the end of week four the child is ten thousand times larger than the fertilized egg. 

Week 5:  Eyes, legs, and hands begin to develop.

Week 6:  Brain waves are detectable; mouth and lips are present; fingernails are forming.

 

Week 7:  Eyelids, and toes form, nose distinct.  The baby is kicking and swimming.

Week 8:  Every organ is in place, bones begin to replace cartilage, and fingerprints begin to form.  By the 8th week the baby can begin to hear.      

 

Weeks 9 and 10:  Teeth begin to form, fingernails develop.  The baby can turn his head, and frown.  The baby can hiccup. 

Weeks 10 and 11:  The baby can “breathe” amniotic fluid and urinate.  Week 11 the baby can grasp objects placed in its hand; all organ systems are functioning.  The baby has a skeletal structure, nerves, and circulation.

 Week 12:  The baby has all of the parts necessary to experience pain, including nerves, spinal cord, and thalamus.  Vocal cords are complete.  The baby can suck its thumb. 

 Week 14:  At this age, the heart pumps several quarts of
blood through the body every day.

Week 15:  The baby has an adult’s taste buds.

Month 4:  Bone Marrow is now beginning to form.  The heart is pumping 25 quarts of blood a day.  By the end of month 4 the baby will be 8-10 inches in length and will be one half of its birth weight.

Week 17:  The baby can have dream (REM) sleep. 

Week 19:  Babies can routinely be saved at 21 to 22 weeks after fertilization, and sometimes they can be saved even younger.

 

Week 20:  The earliest stage at which Partial birth abortions are performed.  At 20 weeks the baby recognizes its’ mothers voice.

 

 Months 5 and 6:  The baby practices breathing by inhaling amniotic fluid into its developing lungs. The baby will grasp at the umbilical cord when it feels it.  Most mothers feel an increase in movement, kicking, and hiccups from the baby.  Oil and sweat glands are now functioning.  The baby is now twelve inches long or more, and weighs up to one and a half pounds. 

Months 7 through 9:  Eyeteeth are present.  The baby opens and closes his eyes.  The baby is using four of the five senses (vision, hearing, taste, and touch.)  He knows the difference between waking and sleeping, and can relate to the moods of the mother.  The baby’s skin begins to thicken, and a layer of fat is produced and stored beneath the skin.  Antibodies are built up, and the baby’s heart begins to pump 300 gallons of blood per day.  Approximately one week before the birth the baby stops growing, and “drops” usually head down into the pelvic cavity.

NC House Approves “Choose Life” Liscense Plates

The North Carolina state House has just approved legislation to allow motorists in the Tar Heel State to purchase Choose Life license plates to adorn their vehicles and spread a pro-life, pro-adoption message.

The House voted 70-44 to authorize dozens of new specialty plates, including the Choose Life plate, that require an extra $25 fee to purchase — with $15 going to pregnancy centers that provide women with abortion alternatives for each plate sold in the state.

Until now, North Carolina was the only state in the southeast that refused to let its citizens purchase the choose life license plate. For eight years the legislation for the choose life plate had been denied a vote even though more than 130 other plates have been approved.

This is an  awesome step for North Carolina and for the precious lives of the unborn.  I am so thankful. And I hope to go and get my plate this week!

Thank You for this Victory Jesus!

Abortion-Woman’s Right to Know Act / House Bill 854

Below are bullet points from proposed legislation Woman’s Right to Know Act:

GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF NORTH CAROLINA
SESSION 2011
H 2

This bill requires a 24-hour waiting period before an abortion could be performed in North Carolina. During that time a woman who is considering an abortion would be provided with the following information to make an informed decision:

  • The name of the physician who will perform the abortion

  • Medical risks associated with the procedure, including psychological risks

  • The probable gestational age of the unborn child

  • The medical risks associated with continuing the pregnancy to term

  • Information about the opportunity to view an ultrasound and hear the heartbeat of her child

  • Whether the abortionist has malpractice liability insurance

  • The location of the hospital that offers obstetrical or gynecological care within 30 miles where the abortionist has clinical privileges, should hospitalization be necessary

Here is the Link to PDF of complete BILL

People of NC and specifically Alamance Co. NC need to contact your local House Reps. to let them know we want this bill made law. It looks favorable at this point. The latest draft in in Appropriations. But there are those in our county who are not favorable to HB 854. I quote Alice Bordsen Rep.  (D-Alamance). She said the bill wasn’t about abortion but was about women and that it implied that they were either “really stupid” or that they “lack a moral compass.” She said rather than discussing abortion, lawmakers should be passing legislation to guarantee that every female of childbearing age is given “free and easy access to contraception and is urged to use it no matter what.”

Does Ms. Bordsen think that all women have the medical knowledge of an eight year educated M.D.? How is even a public high school-educated woman to know and understand the medical intricacies of the abortion procedure and its following repercussion to her life and heath? Not to mention what is going to happen to the yet to be born baby she carries? If I am not mistake, Darwin’s Theory of Evolution it still the de rigueur in our Public Biology courses. This “theory” teaches that the contents of the womb are not really human. The
embryo is said to undergoing an evolutionary process within the womb and is really not fully “human” until birth.  This lie, it what was taught to me in public High School Honors Biology in the late 1980’s. From what I have researched the same is continuing to be taught at truth and fact even in 2011.

A woman does not have to be “dumb” as Bordsen suggests, in fact, she is educated; Or I should say MISEDUCATED!  I have been posting this blog for several years and the most hits I get are from people looking up pictures of what an unborn baby in utero looks like. The girls do not see these images in  public schools. I am so glad we have the internet where images are readily available. The truth can be seen and known, much more easily now.

HB 854 is a great piece of legislation. It will present the facts about abortion and allow a woman to make an INFORMED DECISION, not a blind one, as I did.

By October of this year, the bill should become law. Let us continue to pray God’s Speed to it and to our just law-makers.

Ask Forgiveness for a Medical Procedure? YES!

Do I need to be forgiven for having a gall stone removed? No, that’s not what I mean….

In the past 38 years since abortion became legal nationally due to the Roe V. Wade decision, over 50 Million unborn babies have had their lives snuffed out.

As much as we who are ProLife think about those precious innocent babies.  Do we stop to really think about those women who lost those babies due to abortion?

In abortion there are two victims. One is left living (usually) and the other is left dead. But the mother, who must go on living with the knowledge that she chose to terminate the life of her own child is often tortured. And many don’t realize they have committed a sin,due to many factors,including teaching about “evolution”. Our culture has called abortion a “Medical Procedure”.  The truth is that abortion is a Killing.  The killing is not just of the unborn child within the womb. Other deaths take place. Often the death of the spirit of that woman takes place. She is so wounded by the abortion experience that her life is altered forever.

Women need healing and hope after an abortion. But due to the pain, shame, and guilt, most women may keep their abortion(s) a secret.  They hold in the pain. The pain does come out in many ways, however. These women often lose their relationship with the father of the baby that was aborted. They then may go on to have serial relationships which are unhealthy or even abusive, since often low self-esteem results from an abortion. Other women may turn to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. And others yet may harden their hearts and conscience and try going on like nothing happened.

The women have been lied to and duped by this culture of death. They are suffering and many don’t know where to turn for relief.

As a woman who has gone the through the torture of abortion personally, I can tell you there is only one place or really one person to turn to that is JESUS.  He is the only one capable of taking away from you the sin of abortion. You see, when a woman makes the choice to kill, she has the blood of her unborn baby on her hands. That is innocent blood. So you see that is why you feel so badly. It’s why you need to drink, or do drugs, or have relationships, or sex to try to brush away that guilty stain on your heart and mind.

You cannot remove the pain, the stain; you cannot do it.  Jesus can! He died a horrible death on a Roman Cross to take upon Himself the responsibility for what you have done. Can you believe it? Many cannot.  It sounds too simple, right? Or maybe it sounds too good to be true? Or maybe it sounds like a Religion? Rationalizations can be innumerable. But Jesus is none of those things. He is a person. He is the Savior (of you,) if you will only call out with a mustard seed (tiny bit) of belief in Him, then He will show himself to you, personally. You can ask him for forgiveness. You need to ask. It is called Repentence. We cannot and will not be forgive unless we ask for it. That is the Free Will that God put in each of us.  He forgave me. He will do it for you-when you choose to ASK Him.

The only way Jesus will not come and cleanse and forgive you is if you are unwilling.  Some are too proud. Some are too smart or educated. Some believe there are many paths to God or heaven. Some think they are “good” people. Some just deny the pain away and believe they did nothing wrong, it was a blob of tissue and just a medical procedure.  You know in your heart of hearts it was so much more.

I am so grateful that Jesus loved me so much that he drew me to himself with his great Love.  He does that. He draws people through his Goodness and Mercy.

In  our culture if someone commits a homicide. Lets say goes up to someone and shoots another person with a gun. That person is guilty of murder, and is punished. Yet our culture legalized, condones and even promotes murdering the most helpless people of all. And the only punishment for the doctors and women is perhaps a guilty conscience, if that.

I hope you will think about what I have said. Let it really sink in to your heart and mind. Maybe you are a person of another religion. Maybe you don’t believe in God’s existence. Or maybe you believe in many paths of righteousness that can lead to “God” as you see Him or Her or It.

Whatever the case may be in your personal life. All you need to do is sit on your bed and sincerely (verbally or silently) say “Jesus, if you are real, as others believe. Then please show yourself to me. ” He will begin in perhaps subtle ways to draw you. You will see His faithfulness. Open your heart and you will see.

It may sound silly, but again, it’s the mustard seed of faith.  And He hears you when you call. He loves you. He created you. He knew you before your were born and even before this earth was created.

He wants to make your life whole again. He wants you to know His Great Love and Forgiveness. We all need forgiveness because none of us has lived a perfect life. And we cannot be good enough to earn it. It is through His sacrifice that we can make it here in this life and most importantly to Eternity with Him in Heaven.  And you definitely want to end up in Heaven because that is where your baby is, with Jesus. The innocent are gathered around the Father’s throne in heaven. If you choose Christ you will be reunited with your aborted (unborn) child.

May His Holy Spirit touch you now, that you Believe this: The Good News.

In Jesus Name.
