What About The Unborn Baby’s Rights?
Jan 22, 2017
Forty-four years ago January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in the United States. The lives of nearly 59 million children have been murdered in the name of pro-choice and women’s rights. The Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 (Public Law 108-212) is a United States law which recognizes a fetus in utero as a legal victim, if they are injured or killed during the commission of any of over 60 listed federal crimes of violence. Yet it is legal to take the life of an unborn child and call it an abortion.
Jane Roe won the case for abortion rights but since then she turned to the Lord, now she is an advocate of pro-life. Her real name is Norma McCorvey and she has founded her own organization, Roe No More Ministry. Since Roe vs. Wade, over 58 million babies have been murdered. The 6th commandment says thy shall not kill. In Proverbs 6 It tells us that God hates the hands that shed innocent blood. Isaiah 1:15 “When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood”
God punished Israel for killing innocent Blood. Psalm 106:37-38 “They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons, and shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood”
In America we are doing this very thing. Jesus said in John 3:5 “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. We know abortion robs the physical birth (born of water), Jesus said one MOST be born of WATER and SPIRIT to enter the Kingdom of God.
So I ask what about the rights of the unborn child who has no voice?
Dear Heavenly Father, we ask You to bless and protect the children who today are in their mothers’ womb. Save them from the danger of abortion. Give their mothers the grace to sacrifice themselves, in body and soul, for their children. Help them to see that the child they carry is made in Your image and precious in Your sight. In Jesus Almighty name, Amen.
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand.
When I awake, I am still with You.

Great Expectations For LIFE As Page Turns In DC, ProLife Group BARRED From March
The commitments President Trump and Vice President Pence made at Family Research Council’s 2016 Values Voters Summit are still making waves. Just yesterday, Governor Pence was asked about his VVS promise to be the champion on pro-life priorities and to defund Planned Parenthood. Pence said, “The president will be their champion. The president has taken a strong stand on the sanctity of life,” and that he shares that conviction. Pence went on to discuss the role he will play in advancing the new administration’s pro-life agenda forward by working with Congress and the American people.
Mike Pence has an important job ahead of him in working with Congress to advance the priorities President-elect Trump outlined in a letter to pro-life leaders in September of last year:
- Nominating pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court;
- Signing into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would end painful late-term abortions nationwide;
- Defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions, and reallocating their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care for women; and,
- Making the Hyde Amendment permanent law to protect taxpayers from having to pay for abortions.
Donald Trump is moving ahead on two of these important goals. He has reportedly narrowed his list of possible nominees for the Supreme Court of the United States, having recently had interviews with a few of the possible candidates.
In addition, the Budget Resolution passed in both the Senate and House of Representatives will pave the way for repealing Obamacare and redirecting taxpayer money away from Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics. Once President Trump signs the Budget Resolution, a reconciliation bill will be ushered through the House and Senate and that bill, which will require only 51 senators’ votes, bypassing a procedural vote with a 60 vote threshold, will include the Obamacare and Planned Parenthood provisions. This will be a major pro-life gain by ending the forced partnership between taxpayers and organizations like Planned Parenthood, which spent almost $1 million on lobbying for abortion and taxpayer funding of abortion in 2016.
Not only has the incoming administration clearly made headway in advancing pro-life policy through legislation, but it is also expected in the first 100 days of the administration to issue executive orders and to take administrative action to protect life. One such executive order is expected to include what has previously been called the Mexico City Policy, first issued by President Reagan to protect taxpayer funds from financing organizations that promote or provide abortions. Certainly, the initiatives of Trump-Pence team will save many, many unborn lives.
But they won’t be without opposition. Wednesday night, LGBT activists put their disdain for the new administration and the policies that propelled them to victory on full display. The Washington Post reported that the so-called Queer Dance Party “shimmied and sashayed their way through the Chevy Chase neighborhood Wednesday night toward the house temporarily rented by Vice President Mike Pence to protest what they consider his anti-gay views.” The Women’s March on Washington that is scheduled for the day after the inauguration is likewise showing its true colors as an instrument of the Left. On Monday it booted a women’s group from the march simply because it was pro-life. Such fierce opposition is why those of us for whom faith, family, and freedom are first-order issues need to continually make our voice heard as a counterbalance of truth in the new administration.
Donald Trump Executive Actions Kill TPP, Announce Federal Hiring Freeze, Restore Mexico City Policy
President Donald Trump signed three executive actions this morning, killing the Trans-Pacific partnership, instituting a federal hiring freeze, and restoring the Mexico City policy, which bans federal funds from being used to fund abortions.
“We’ve been talking about this for a long time … a great thing for the American worker,” Trump said after signing the order killing former President Obama’s signature trade effort.
Trump senior advisors stood and watched Trump sign the executive orders as senior advisor Reince Priebus announced each order as it was signed.
Trump specified that the hiring freeze for federal workers would not apply to the military.
