Socially, abortion is acceptable. Morally it is still murder! Abortion creates victims. It has become an even bigger monster, because more has been added into it. First it was designed to get rid of a baby because it was inconvenient, then the guidelines expanded. Now an abortion can be done late term. Some babies are even born alive, and left to die unattended, or out and out killed by various means. Murder intensified! Soon it will be expanded again. Liberals see nothing wrong with killing children up to the age of four. These post birth abortions would eliminate the difficult child, give parents more income without the child. America, we are out of control. Nothing is sacred, and this abortion monster grows and grows! Murder!
The latest expansion of this evil is harvested body parts that can be sold. This monster now, carefully aborts the baby, so all the parts are whole, and worth money. There is something so sinister about taking an already victim, and adding insult to injury. If this weren't a human as they try to tell us, they wouldn't have body parts to sell.
We are horrified that everyday new monsters of violence, torture and evil are invading our world, yet we allow the biggest monster of depravity to exist. You remember Hitler. He very effectively and purposely murdered thousands of people, he decided were inferior and unfit to live. No one should have the power to decide who is fit to live. Being judged as sub-human or unwanted should not be a crime punishable by death.
A baby's heart starts beating in 32 days from conception. That's about the time a pregnancy is discovered. These pre-born babies are as human as you and I. Historian Arnold Toynbee once said, "A civilization is judged by how society treats it's most helpless members." Our pre-born children are not undesirable, they are undeveloped potential. They deserve a chance to touch lives, make contributions to society, and have the life God planned for them. Yet these little ones have their voices stilled before they can even cry.
There are still people who don't understand or know God who made them. They refer to babies as meaningless protoplasm. They don't understand or acknowledge that God never has nor will create anything meaningless. Human life was created to have eternal value. Women may need choices, but more than that, they need the truth about the child they helped conceive. Abortionists, and especially Planned Parenthood mislead and lie to keep making money. If they told the truth about this evil, they would be out of business.
Did you know an ultrasound will even show a baby's personality at eight weeks? Pre-born babies wave, do somersaults, and are as cute then as they are when they are born, and snuggled in their mother's arms. It just is not natural to kill your children. There are no winners in abortion. The little victim is killed, and the mother and the killers are affected for their whole lives, Psychologically. All will be haunted by what they have done, if not now, some day.
Young women going to Planned Parenthood for answers, are only offered abortion. Their name alone is ludicrous. Planned Parenthood is evidentially Planned Murder. They offer no other solutions. They try to say they are about women's health, but that is another lie. What can I do, you ask. We can help save a little life, one at a time. Spread the word, point the hurting to Jesus, and pray often! This is a war, but don't be afraid to fight!
Life is no longer sacred. If history has stepped on Jesus, the blacks, the Jews, what chance do helpless pre-born babies have? Never forget God is the creator and giver of life. It is a gift! I often wonder how many doctors, scientists, pastors, teachers, mothers, and fathers
Only God gave us life, and only He has the right to decide when that life ends. Are you big enough to fit in shoes only God should wear?

Do you have a place that is special to you? A place where you can think, dream, and just be. It might be an actual place, or it could be only in your head. Do I need a special place, you ask? I can't answer that for you, but for me it is necessary, and my place has been with me since the 1990s. I don't know if I can even explain it, it may not translate into actual words.
You see my place is the ceiling of our sanctuary at Church. Sounds weird I know, but it all started years ago when we were new to Westside Church in Omaha. At the time, I was not good at a budget, and the only major problems we had was my spending more than we had. By Sunday, I was usually dreading Monday, because I was juggling money, and not well. This didn't happen all the time, but it was often enough. I was afraid to let my husband help me, because I believed he would no longer love me, if he knew I had messed up.
My life long battle with self esteem and fears of being a loser, colored
That may seem strange, but I don't know how else to say it. This was our first time at Westside. John was then pastor of a Church in Schuyler, and then a pastor on staff at Cornerstone Church in Omaha. Even though we were gone from Westside for awhile, it was always our Church home. Now we have been back for three years, and my safe haven, my ceiling still means the same to me.
Most of our problems now are health concerns, but God has brought us through so much. I can not imagine singing praise music on Sunday without my ceiling. It has been painted different colors over the years, but it is still my go to place to pray during a song, be uplifted by the songs words, and to praise my Lord for all He does! It reminds me of God's care, His unlimited love, and that I am safe!
I can't explain my peace, and joy when I lift my eyes to that ceiling, but it is real for me!
