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 44 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.

Some Movies w/ Pro Abort Message

I recently watched a couple of movies I had been sort of avoiding because I had heard they had pro-abortion themes in them. The first and most odious was “Grandma”. Wow, this movie was just horrible on so many levels. The most disgusting aspect was the main character, Grandma, played by long time lesbian Lily Tomlin. In real life she’s not a mother, nor a grandmother. But in real life she’s also clearly on the side of promoting abortion. I won’t go into the whole plot, or lack thereof, other than to say “Grandma” is helping her granddaughter to raise enough money to get an abortion. They go through various schemes, meeting with “Grandma’s” old friends and lovers. And sadly end the end they raised enough money to get the young girl the abortion. This movie dramatizes what is happening in real life in our culture today. Imagine, there must be many grandparents out there who were all rooting for feminism, women’s rights, ERA, and abortion on demand back in the 1960’s and early 70’s. And those so-called pioneers have passed this death culture down for a few generations already. I am praying these elders will have their eyes opened and be able before they meet their Eternity, to Repent for the lies they have propagated to their children, and children’s children, if they were lucky enough to be born.

The second movie I saw recently I rented from my local library. It was “Revolutionary Road” starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. This story took place in the setting of the “oh so repressive” 1950’s New York. The two meet and marry. She’s an artistic type who enjoys acting and had wanted to be a Broadway actress. He was a veteran of WWII, who eventually gets into a desk job at a marketing firm. But all alone they feel like the are too cool for the life they have settled into, living in the suburbs with two young children. The wife suggests they get out of their doldrums by moving to Paris. He was there during the war. Long story short, there is adultery on both parts. The plan to move to Paris is foiled when she discovers she is pregnant with their third child. She is distraught and he is disappointed. She tells him she can “take care of the situation” just as long as it’s before 12 weeks. He, at first seemed somewhat interested, but eventually he’s offered a promotion at work and encourages her to have their child and shames her for her immaturity and selfishness in even thinking of aborting her own child. She feels trapped in her life, her marriage, and in suburbia feeling she’ll never live her dream. So after making “nice nice” with her husband with a lovely breakfast she waves him off to the city and politely goes upstairs to the bathroom to give herself an abortion. She comes back down the stairs solemnly and much blood starts dripping from her skirt and onto the floor. She’s rushed to the hospital where she dies by bleeding to death. This story does a couple of things: It puts down traditional family and married life as old timey and boring. And secondly it not-so-subtly promotes our “need” for abortion on demand. After all if the U.S. had not passed Roe V. Wade in 1973 making it legal to kill the preborn up til 20 weeks then a woman might have to try to perform her “own homemade abortion” or worse go to a back alley doctor for a coat hanger abortion! Revolutionary Road was total pro-abortion Propaganda.

Both above films receive thumbs down and rotten tomatoes from me.

9 Things you should know about Kermit Gosnell Infanticide & Murder Trial

9 Things You Should Know About the Gosnell Infanticide and Murder Trial

Kermit Gosnell, 72, is an abortionist on trial in Pennsylvania for murder and infanticide. Here are 9 things you should know about the Gosnell case:

1. Gosnell was arrested in January 2011, charged with eight counts of murder: one patient who allegedly died under his care after a botched abortion, and seven infants supposedly born alive whose spinal cords Gosnell allegedly severed with scissors.

2. According to prosecutors in Philadelphia, Gosnell catered to minorities, immigrants, and poor women, and made millions of dollars over 30 years performing illegal and late-term abortions in squalid and barbaric conditions. Gosnell took extra precautions with white women from the suburbs, according to the grand jury report. He allegedly ushered them into a slightly cleaner area because he thought they would be more likely to file a complaint.

3. Women paid $325 for first-trimester abortions and $1,600 to $3,000 for abortions up to 30 weeks. The clinic took in up to $15,000 a day, said authorities. Although abortions after the 24th week are illegal, Gosnell allegedly aborted and killed babies in the sixth and seventh months of pregnancy and charged more for bigger babies.

4. According to the grand jury report, the clinic reeked of animal urine and the furniture and blankets were stained with blood. Medical instruments found in the practice had not been properly sterilized. State officials have failed to visit or inspect his abortion clinic since 1993. Prosecutors also claim that Gosnell is not certified in either gynecology or obstetrics.

5. Prosecutors say that none of Gosnell’s staff, including his wife, were licensed nurses or doctors and that a 15-year-old student performed anesthesia with potentially lethal narcotics.

6. A woman who worked for Gosnell testified that she was called back to a room at his abortion clinic in Philadelphia where the bodies of aborted babies were kept to hear one screaming amid a shelf-full of dead babies. “I can’t describe it,” says the woman. “It sounded like a little alien.” She says the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.

7. On January 31, 1998, a then 15 year old Robyn Reid sought an abortion from Gosnell’s clinic. Once she was in the clinic, though, Reid, an 87-pound teenager at the time, told Gosnell she changed her mind about the abortion. She claims Gosnell got upset, ripped off her clothes, restrained her, and repeatedly told her, “This is the same care that I would give to my own daughter.” Reid regained consciousness 12 hours later at her aunt’s home, with the abortion having been completed against her will.

8. Gosnell’s arrest and trial have received almost no coverage by the national media. During the early part of the trial ABC, CBS and NBC did not cover the trial at all, yet gave 41 minutes and 26 seconds of air time to the story of Mike Rice, the Rutgers basketball coach who was fired for verbally and physically abusing his players.

9. The 3801 Lancaster Film Project is an ongoing documentary series about Kermit Gosnell, the Women’s Medical Society, and the cover-up by state and local oversight agencies.  You can find the film on YouTube.

Why Should We Value Life?

Why Should We Value Life?

So God created man in his own image of God he created him, male and female he created them.

-Genesis  1:27 (NIV)

From on man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.

-Acts 17:26

This is what the LORD says-you Redeemer who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself.

-Isaiah 44:24

For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones of powers or rulers or authorities, all things were created by him and for him.

-Colossians 1:16

Yet, O LORD you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter, we are all the work of your hand.

-Isaiah 64:8

Who is the Creator of the Preborn?

Did not he who mad me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us both within our mothers?

-Job 31:15

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; you 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, you eyes saw my unformed body.  All the days ordained for me were written in your book before on of them came to be.

-Psalm 139:13-16

How is God concerned with the Preborn?

Listen to me you islands; hear this you distant nations: Before I was born the LORD called me; from my birth he has made mention of my name.

-Isaiah 49:1

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

-Jeremiah 1:5

Praise be to the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.

-Ephesians 1:3-4

Happy Mother’s Day

I am so blessed this Mother’s Day to have someone call me “Mommy”.  To hear little voices calling my name. To hear them laughing and singing. To see them and dancing and running. Motherhood is a gift and a joy given by our precious and loving God, Jehovah, Jesus.

I am so thankful that God bestowed upon me, a sinner, an imperfect person saved only by His Grace; the opportunity and yes, the responsibility of being a mother.

The only way I can do it is by His daily mercies and grace to me and to my family. I know that I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me, daily (Philippians 4:13).

It is sad to remember how I felt before I gave birth to my children and held them and have them in my life and arms.  In the past, I was a bereft woman who disposed of her unplanned child through abortion. I grieved the abortion for many years. How tragic it was. How tragic it still is for so many women who are mothers with empty arms. The only freedom from that pain is the freedom graciously given me when I asked Jesus into my life and heart.;To be my Savior and Lord. He let me know that one day I will hold that baby in Heaven.

So today on Mother’s Day, a day when mothers are honored, and lauded; I would like to let all women everywhere know that I know what its like to have gone through the physical suffering of the abortion procedure as well as the prolonged (decade long) emotional, psychological and physical pain of the “choice” that I made.

Abortion is a lie. Abortion is death. Abortion is violation. Abortion is pain. Abortion is wrong. Abortion is evil. Abortion is murder.

To the women who have had an abortion; there is Hope, Forgiveness, and Restoration. It can only be found in ONE PLACE- THE ARMS OF JESUS.  Ask Him to forgive you for murdering your unborn child. He will. Ask Him to free you from the guilt, remorse,pain, bondage that resulted from your choice. Take responsibility as a mother to repent to God for the ending of the Life of one of His Precious Ones. It may seem impossible but the Freedom He gives is real.

May God bless all the Mothers this Day in Jesus Name.

Pray to End Abortion!

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.

Abortion Devalues Life at Every Age and at Every Stage

Recently I have started working part-time at a local gym organization in the childcare room.  It is a sort of “drop in daycare” situation. The children are only allowed to be there for a maximum of two hours.  They are left there for the purpose of their parents going to work out/ exercise.  This sound perfectly reasonable and fine, does it not? I thought so too.

But when I started working  there my heart really went out to these little kids left there to be cared for by strangers who are paid minimum wage.  One thinks two hours is nothing, right? I agree, if the kid is there while their stay at home mommy goes for a stress-relieving work out, its fine. But some of those little ones,( 2 years old), have already been in a daycare/ playschool all day then have to come to this facility for another shuffling about. It is truly something that touches me deeply.  I was one of those kids.

My parents divorced when I was 2 years old. So this left my mom to be a single parent who worked full-time as a high school teacher. I had to get up early in the morning, many times one of the first kids to arrive at daycare and later at school. I can remember being at the daycare and crying for my mommy, feeling so desperate, knowing she was not coming. I would even day-dream and plot my escape from the place. I figured how to jump the fence and I thought I could run to my mom’s school and be with her. Of course this never happened.  Later when I was school aged, I had to go to a Y afterschool program and I was often the last one picked up. It was really traumatic for me. I always felt insecure, wondering if and when my mommy was coming.

This new job really touched some deep memories and hurts in me. Especially when I would see a little girl tune up, crying, for mommy. I held her and told her I loved her,not like her own mommy, but that I care and she is safe. The sad thing is that most of the women who work in there are not like me, with a heart for the children. They seems to be a real malaise and laissez faire attitude is seems.

How tragic for the generations of children, raised by strangers, since the early 1970’s when women’s liberation and legalized abortion all came about. And of course divorce is a major culprit in the neglect of children. Fathers are absent and mothers do what they feel they must to get by and provide for children and cover for coward men who abandon their children.

Again, I ask who are the victims? They all are, really. But the saddest are the little innocent ones shuffled about like so much chattel. Children are not “things” they are people made in the image of God. They are precious, innocent, and sweet. And most of all they are in need of loving care from their own mothers and fathers or grandparents.

Does anyone really think that a stranger who is often paid minimum wage or barely above, who is saddled with too many kids to handle can provide ANY level of CARE?

I am overcoming the scars from my childhood,through the Grace of Jesus, my Savior. And I am grateful to have LIFE. At the time I was born, it was just shortly before Roe v. Wade became national law. So many of my generation and subsequent generations never took a breath.

The horrible abomination of abortion devalues human life not only in the womb by snuffing it out. It also continues that same lack of worth of human beings after they are here. Children are so often seen as less than a person, or a problem to deal with, or worse. We can see it also with the aged. They are put into nursing homes to “someone else’s problem”. So at the beginning of LIFE and at the end of LIFE these precious souls are abandoned to happenstance and chance in institutions, to be “cared for” by strangers. How sad! How wrong!

God loves the helpless ones. He highly values their lives. They are precious in His sight. Why are they not precious in our collective sight? Are we no longer a Christian country? I think not! As long as innocent blood is being shed via abortion in the USA, God is never going to Bless us. He hates all of our murderous abomination. The souls of the innocent cry out to God day and night for JUSTICE. And, people, God will bring JUSTICE, lest we repent.

The reason many won’t care about the topics I have mentioned is because they do not involve making money, gaining pleasure, and gaining self-fulfillment. To change things people must go back to the BIBLE and stop living for SELF and temporal PLEASURE. MONEY must cease to the this country’s GOD!

Jesus said “suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for such is the Kingdom of Heaven” (Mark 10:14).  Jesus told us to be as little children. We are to be wise as serpents yet innocent as lambs.

Jesus has his flock. He will have those come unto him. And to any who would prevent such As it is written; ‘Better a millstone be hung around their neck and they be cast into the sea (Luke 17:2).”

United States of America: Are you ready for that Millstone? Think you can swim with it?

Pray for repentance and heart revival  for this country,

God Bless.
