Question

Nobody could possibly know from this video that those who "changed their perspectives" on abortion were sincere, but we can definitely pray that they were. Warning: there are graphic photographs throughout this documentary. However, I encourage EVERYONE to watch the whole thing.

Benefit Concert

Here's the big project we've been planning. A benefit concert for CareNet, a local pregnancy resource center!! It will take place February 3rd, 2012, at Faith Presbyterian Church in Tacoma, WA. We hope to raise at least $4,000, for them to use in whatever way they see fit.

Ways you can help:

  • We are only having students performing, so if you are musically gifted, you are a student, and you live near Tacoma or Gig Harbor, Washington, we'd love to see what you can do!
  • If you know someone who lives near here that is a student musician, let them know about this chance!
  • If you are not a musician, are not a student, or do not have the time, we hope you can still attend the concert as part of the audience!
  • If you are not close enough to be there, we still accept donations!
If you would be willing to help in any of these ways, email me at manuscriptna(at)gmail(dot)com. Please consider helping out!

Another convert!

Just recently, the manager of a Planned Parenthood office in Sherman, Texas resigned due to prayers and God's tugging at her heart. Also, the $34+ million that was going to Planned Parenthood was struck down! These two events caused the Sherman office to close down. Praise be to God! Here is a video with most of the details:

Operation Conversion

Whether or not this video is "news" is irrelevant because the concerned individual is still very much in the business of taking innocent lives. The outrage of the fact that he--of all people who know (or should know) the value of human life--so blatantly defies God's law in order to profit under the guise of humanitarian compassion for women has not been surpassed in any sickening age of the world.




On the official Physicians for Reproductive Choice and Health website, Dr. Boyd is quoted as follows: "It's work that I'm very proud of. I have never experienced a greater level of gratitude from patients or the feeling that I made a real difference in their life, and really in the life of our society. So the work has been satisfying. It's never ceased to feel rewarding and to feel that I'm doing something good and something important."

Experienced gratitude from patients? I'll bet he's never asked a dead child.
A difference in their life? I'm sure. (see What a Pain. and Psychological Aftermath below)
A difference in society? Definitely. (see Numbers below) Well, let's be glad he feels good about himself.

It is more than tempting to despair when faced with such tragedy; and yet the most powerful counteraction to the Devil's designs is prayer. It was through prayer that God worked to save Abby Johnson, once a Planned Parenthood director who now prays against abortion. On her website, under "OPERATION CONVERSION," Johnson makes a special request to fellow Christians:
"Please pray for Dr. Curtis Boyd. Dr. Boyd provides abortion services up to 30 weeks gestation. He employs many late term abortionists to work for him at his facility. He currently works in the state of New Mexico. Please commit with me to pray for Dr. Boyd and cover him in prayer every day for 7 days. This is not a call to contact him or his facility.

**Please post this on your Facebook wall, send to your prayer groups, talk to your minister, post on a prayer chain, or do whatever you can to get this message out. The goal is to have as many people praying for this physician at one time. We know the power of prayer is amazing and can change any heart. Thank you for your commitment!"

Uncertainty

Why are people SO willing to be certain in the midst of uncertainty on the most crucial issues? If you ask two different pro-choice advocates when life begins, there is a good chance they will give two different answers, whether its this many months after conception or directly after birth. However, neither will be willing to say that their opinion is based on a final, once-and-for-all proven verdict. Rather if they are educated they will concede that the facts are still "debatable" simply because others have THEIR opinions to contend with. In fact, they may both say that they just don't know. Do they realize what consequences they're toying with? If you tell them two and two make five based on your mathematical opinion they'll ask if you're from Mars, because no logical human being on earth would ever believe you. One reason no logical human being on earth would ever believe you is because if two and two made five none of our planes would be flying. But when it comes to abortion, women's rights are all they will talk about regardless if abortion is murder. If that's the best justification they can give for aborting babies, who for all they know are real people, then I can prove that two and two make five. Want to know how? Evolution!

Instead of listing sample sites or texts, I encourage readers to look up this debate. Start with Roe vs. Wade if you want. I gaurantee it's everywhere.

Politics

A while back we considered some of the major costs abortion has caused our society and economy as a whole. While we may blanch at the statistics it isn't as though they were caused by some unforeseen and unrelated design. Rather, the realm of politics and the influence of money and power has so shaped our culture that many people tend not to see the future consequences of their actions.

Ours is a country of the here and now. If you are not at all convinced by this statement let me remind you in what a predicament your country is in. The U.S. economic bubble burst long ago and our economy is still feeling the aftershocks from an ever weakening market. We have spent more than we can afford and have left the debt bills to my generation and those generations soon to follow. I am not exceedingly bitter over the matter, but the fact is that nobody has looked out for the children of future generations. Rather they have spent all on themselves and invested in non-existent profits.

Now with that little sidetrack out of the way, here's the issue. As I've said before, these facts should not be wholly unexpected. And the facts are:

1. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the U.S. of A.
2. Tax payer money supports Planned Parenthood (willingly or otherwise).
3. Planned Parenthood possesses lobbyists, which are always ready at the doors of Washington D.C. to pass new bills and gain support for its cause.
4. Planned Parenthood is currently in high favor with many government officials.
5.

You'll notice I didn't write a fifth fact. The reason is because we first must answer a question that should immediately jump out at you upon reading the second and fourth facts. And that question is, "Why?" Why is an abortion provider recieving $360 million annually in government funds to fuel its butchering industry? Is it because most government officials in the House and Congress are pro-choice? Is it because they are sympathetic to women's monopolized health care providers? Is it because they simply want what's best for women?

I'm convinced many would say "yes" to all of the above. Besides, they might argue that there's nothing currently wrong with our monopolized health care providers. But there may be something more sinister, even more controversial than these issues.

5. "Both Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America are considered the most active lobbyists on the pro-choice side of the issue, as well as the most generous contributors to federal candidates, parties and committees."

Which federal candidates, parties, and committees you may ask? Liberal ones.

"Abortion-rights groups continue to give far more contributions and spend far more on lobbying than their anti-abortion opponents." This message was brought to you by your friendly inquisitor Open Secrets.

Now, I see no problem whatsoever in gaining governmental support for a controversial issue. However, there is no legitimate reason for having the government FUND an organization whether pro-life or pro-choice. That is to say, let pro-lifers pay out of their own pockets and pro-choicers out of theirs. The utter hypocrisy of Planned Parenthood in particular is that it recieves tax-payer dollars from pro-lifers and pro-choicers alike. THEN, they take some of that money and give it to their favorite liberal politicians, who out of the benevolence of their hears will strive to give pro-choice organizations "good deals" via legislation. Now with a pocket full of cash, the liberals can campaign once again for a seat in Congress.

Does Care Net perform the same atrocities? Not with pure donations it can't! In the political system (or any other system), Care Net doesn't steal from pro-choice activists through taxation or any other means. It is honest debating, not bribery.

This in large part is why some if not most liberal government officials support pro-choice organizations. And since they currently dominate Congress and the White House, it is no wonder that the pro-choice side is thriving in the midst of a recession. Read between the lines! Politicians do not habitually create charity funds to support other groups. Their first priority is their livelihood and sometimes popularity. If they have to circulate (steal) tax payer dollars to get ahead, some are willing to do it. The sad fact is, lives are lost simply because a House member thinks his butt would feel really good in a particular chair for another two years.

A Message from Darwin: The Odds Are Against Us

“Protection of the life of the mother as an excuse for an abortion is a smoke screen. In my thirty-six years in pediatric surgery I have never known of one instance where the child had to be be aborted to save the mother's life,” says Dr. C. Everett Koop. According to the former Surgeon General, most abortions in the United States are not performed because of physical defect in the unborn, but because the woman simply did not want the child. Less than 5% of all abortions are cases of rape or incest, threat to the mother's life, or severely defective offspring.

With this understanding, I will attempt to prove the inconsistencies of the pro-choice evolutionist.

According to the “Father of Evolution,” the evolution of a species depends upon its ability to reproduce. In his own words:
“...If such [variations useful to man] do occur, can we doubt (remembering that many more individuals are born than can possibly survive) that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?...This preservation of favourable individual differences and variations...I have called Natural Selection, or the Survival of the Fittest” (--Charles Darwin, On the Origin of Species).

So it doesn't matter if the fetus isn't “viable”—if it doesn't express advantageous traits, its own species will naturally prevent it from spreading its undesirability without even killing it, that is, without the aid of unnatural abortion.

“Populations of organisms change over the course of many generations. Many of these changes result in increased survival and reproduction. This phenomenon is evolution. Biological evolution refers to the changes that populations of organisms will accumulate over many generations.” A true evolutionist might wonder how many of the millions of unwanted aborted babies may actually have had a “change” resulting in “increased survival and protection”— that is, how many might have been an “advantage” in the gene pool of humanity, had they been allowed to survive. “One of the 7 characteristics of life is reproduction. To sustain life, organisms must produce others like themselves; the genetic material maintains continuity over the generations” (--study helps on McGraw-Hill's Brooker Biology website). We're killing ourselves off.

So in evolutionary terms, the more babies born alive, the greater the chances that a beneficial mutation will occur, and over time be ingrafted into the human race. (I don't happen to believe that “beneficial mutations” exist at all, but according to the theory, they are responsible for our success as a species.)

But since abortion removes this ability, how can abortion be beneficial to humans as a species, even from a non-ethical, non-moral point of view? Abortion decreases the rate of production, and therefore increases the odds against potential improvement. Look at all our reasoning abilities, our technological and scientific advances, cultural developments, etc. If humans have got this far, why shouldn't we be able to reach even greater heights as a species—unless abortion heaps up the odds against us?

Jeremiah 1:5

"Before I formed you in the womb
I called you unto Me;
I loved what I had made before
I brought it forth to be.

Before your mother gave you birth
I set apart your soul;
From time preceding time I knew,
I diagrammed your role.

You may deny you know, as clay
Will slight the Potter's hand;
But one day every knee shall bow
To my august command."

Boycott!


HEK-293. Human Embryo Kidney cells, and only on the 293rd experiment. Aborted babies. 293 of them, just to help create a flavor enhancer. 

http://noahsreads.blogspot.com/2011/07/boycott.html

Pepsi

I know, the title doesn't seem to be remotely relevant, but it is. PepsiCo has partnered with the biotech company Senomyx, which uses aborted fetal cells for researching and developing artificial flavor enhancers. Several pro-life organizations are boycotting PepsiCo. Read more about it here: http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/pro-life-groups-call-for-pepsi-boycott-over-aborted-fetal-cell-lines

What can YOU do about it? Email PepsiCo here: http://www.pepsico.com/Contacts.html or email Senomyx itself: http://www.senomyx.com/contact/ You can also avoid purchasing or using PepsiCo products, and you can find a list of them here: http://noahsreads.blogspot.com/2011/07/boycott.html

Numbers

We've covered quite a few issues dealing with moral, spiritual, emotion, and physical aspects of abortion. I find however, that numbers always seem to fascinate me as much or more than the former, partly because I have been brought up with the understanding that from a Christian perspective, there is something fundamentally flawed with abortion. But what if we were to fight on a different front? What if somebody disregarded your arguments as Christian bigotry, no matter how convincing? I'm not saying that God's Word and Holy Spirit are not powerful enough to change a man's perspective and/or life, but there must be an alternative way to argue that can convince even the staunchest pro-choice apologist. And there is.

Math has never been my favorite subject. Like many things in life, I have to actually work to understand it. But as a defender of human rights, including those of the unborn, math is your friend. I'm hoping in these next two or three articles to cover more economical, statistical, and political approaches to the pro-life cause. These hopefully will give some readers a better understanding of how to fight the enemy on his own turf. My primary goal is to explain what abortion has done to the nation as a whole and why our government is in favor of continually supporting the industry. Take emotion and God completely out of the picture and you're left with a calculator.

Let's begin in appendix 1 of E. Calvin Beisner's 1990 Prospects For Growth. There are a few statistics provided by history professor Allan C. Carlson, who in 1988 calculated that an average person costs from birth to eighteen, and then from 65 until death around $192,600 (remember that key word "average"). This figure stands regardless whether one person was employed and another wasn't.

"But the same average person will occasion the production directly and indirectly, of goods and services with average worth, if a male, of $55,277 per year; if a female, of $26,680 per year every year from age eighteen to age sixty-five."

This according to Beisner meant the average male produced $2,598,019 worth of goods and services during his lifetime, and a female, $1,253,960 in her lifetime. Now subtract the cost of each individual from what he/she produces and as a net worth to society the average male produces $2,405,419 in goods and the female, $1,061,360. Do you kind of get the drift? That's a lot of money from ONE male and ONE female in the early 1990's. Since then the dollar's value has plummeted drastically due to inflation, and has traded quality for quantity.

By 2005 the abortion industry was claiming the lives of some 1.2 million babies annually. This according to the Alan Guttmacher Institute statistics was a decrease from 1990's 1.5-1.6 million abortions. Yet researcher Dennis M. Howard still claimed that abortions have cost the U.S. GDP more than $35 trillion! To me that seems a bit of an exaggeration. Averages are never fully accurate. Nevertheless, I would not doubt it is in the trillions. Beisner calculated in 1990 that by 2007 the combined annual loss to society would reach $542,054,670,000 and continue to grow. Remember that these would be in constant 1987 dollars. And it's not just the general public that loses. Taxes are another issue.The federal revenue by Beisner's calculations would lose $108,410,930,000 annually by 2007. By 2017 (just a few years away) those losses would exceed $1 trillion annually to society and about $200 billion to federal revenue.

Again and for the last time I want to emphasize that these are averages. There are still factors that may or may not have been brought into the equation such as natural disasters, diseases which may wipe out a part of the population, birth rates of different races, etc. It can never be fully accurate. One statistic provided below claims that 50.5 million abortions have cost the nation $35-$70 trillion. Playing around with that many numbers sounds suspicious. However, every statistic I found exceeds $3 trillion. Wanna know what 1 trillion looks like? I encourage you to go to this site and find out: http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=12754 . Notice that these are 100 dollar bills, not 1 dollar bills.

Here are other interesting facts I found off the wonderful web. "1 trillion dollars can fund the military of every NATO country combined." "1 trillion dollars can pay for every U.S. military intervention and war since 9/11." And of course there are a lot more.

Now with these diagrams in your mind, try to picture $3 trillion. And if you're more confident than I am in Dennis M. Howard, try to imagine $35 trillion! The point is, these numbers should be sobering. And the fact that generations produce more generations means that economic losses from 50 million abortions are incalculable.

Cassandra's Band

The Greek myth concerning Cassandra daughter of King Priam has become a literary metaphor for a situation in which someone's accurate prophecy or warning is ignored.


The day is green and clear—so clear—
And down the street the people hear
Cassandra's band, so drab and drear
'Mid transient colors of the year.

The day is green and oh so clear—
“Hear, hear us,” cries Cassandra, “hear!
Your minds are poisoned with false cheer
For money is the god you fear.”

The day is red—Isaiah cries,
“Take heed, you hearts that once were wise!
From bloody hands God turns his eyes,
And will not bless this people's lies.”

The day is red—a poet speaks,
The wisest man: “This country reeks
Of death and dying babes, and seeks
Prosperity to reach its peaks—

“Yet children are a great reward,
A heritage from God the Lord.
This point you people have ignored;
Prepare to face the wrath you've stored.”

The day is dark—cries one young seer,
“Your women have no children dear;
Your men lost faith and reason here.”
—At Kipling's voice th'assemblied leer.

The day is black, and all is clear
But at the dreary band they jeer.
Cassandra sheds one lonely tear
And knows the promised time is near.



Edwin Arlington Robinson, "Cassandra."
Isaiah 1:15-17
Psalm 127:3-5
Rudyard Kipling, "The Gods of the Copybook Headings."

Rebelution Tour 2011

The idea for this blog was inspired by authors Alex and Brett Harris, who wrote a book called Do Hard Things, to challenge teens (and others) to rebel against low expectations placed on them by modern society. They called this idea the Rebelution.

Every year, Alex and Brett tour the U.S. in a series of conferences. This year, unfortunately, will be their last tour. They will be coming to Orlando, Florida; Williamsport, Pennsylvania; San Diego, California; Portland, Oregon; Kansas City, Kansas; Indianapolis, Indiana; and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

This is a great event, full of worship, of learning how to "do hard things," and of meeting great people. I encourage each of you to come to one of these, if you can make it. The prices aren't too heavy, and you can find dates and price info here: http://www.therebelution.com/conference/

Most of us that teamed up for this blog will be going to the Portland conference on July 30th. If any are interested, we could meet them there and chat! Let us know via comments below.

Here is a promo video for the conference, to show you more about its purpose:

Unplanned (the dvd)

Unplanned, Tyndale House, 2011, Abby Johnson, documentary

Watch the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZC6thU987CY

Synopsis: After the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas participated in her first abortion procedure, she quit her job and walked across the road to join the Coalition for Life. In this heart-stopping documentary, you'll discover how Abby Johnson's spiritual transformation instills hope and compassion into the political controversy surrounding this difficult issue. Approx. 60 minutes.
My thoughts: Unplanned tells a story the likes we dance for joy to hear. Abby Johnson, who grew up in a Christian home in Texas, found herself leaning towards the defense of women who were derided by condemning Christians. Eventually, she found herself regretting her decision, and chose to defend unborn lives instead. With the help of 40 Days For Life and Coalition For Life, she tells her story for us all to hear. It is an amazing encouragement in the arena of pro-choice vs. pro-life.

My rating: 5 stars

Everett Planned Parenthood audio

Yet another update on the Planned Parenthood emergency. The abortion victim was 16. Sad. http://abortionstate.blogspot.com/2011/04/shes-16.html

Funding

So, the government will not be shut down. (stay with me on this one, I'm not getting deep in politics, yet) They made a big spending cut, the largest annual cut in history. But whose funding did they not cut? You guessed it, Planned Parenthood. (third paragraph down: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/government-shutdown-officials-agree-deadline-deal/story?id=13333717) This infuriates me! Now, how do YOU feel about it?

A Step Forward

Here's to the death of the House Bill. May all its kindred be even shorter-lived. Praise the Lord who answered our prayers.

Oh tell again in every land
How mighty is the sovereign hand
That works a righteous will!
Break forth in song, who once did weep;
Draw strength anew, whose sighs were deep,
To know He listens still.

How mighty—yet how low He bends
And all-receiving ears He lends
To creatures wrought of dust!
Renew your hopes, cease not to pray;
Before Him every sorrow lay;
His ways are right and just.

For He to whom revenge belongs
Will not forget the wicked wrongs
That cause His children pain;
He shares our grief to see destroyed
His image; and no prayer is void
Within His will, nor vain.

Then fight, prayer-soldiers, and rejoice
To know God even heeds our voice—
The battle is not done!
Remember how He heard us here;
Take heart, be strong and of good cheer;
The Kingdom shall be won.

Bill Critique Continued

Now for the rest of the bill.

Section 4: Now this point has been made multiple times, including at the state capital when this bill was proposed in front of the committee.

Let's say you went to go buy just a plain old cheeseburger at a fast food resteraunt. You go up to the counter knowing what you want, but before you ask for the burger the cash register lady gives you a menu with the following: "We do not sell indian food, pizza, fettuccini alfredo, frog legs, wines, beer, or any order in the realm of the disgusting besides Doctor Pepper. We do not provide anything other than food and beverages. We do not..." You get the point. Not only that, you noticed on the way in a ridiculous poster on the wall with the entire menu of what they DO provide, eventhough it's clearly visible above the counter. On top of that, the poster is in six or seven different languages.

Section 5: These precautionary measures can be beneficial, but again, what is the reason to enforce them by law if Care Net did not violate them?

Section 6: If none of the previous sections have made your blood boil, this one should. If this section passes Care Net will likely go bankrupt in a matter of months. Notice that there aren't any provisions defending Care Net. And it wouldn't matter if these same ridiculous figures were required of Planned Parenthood to pay because of its multi-million dollar industry. Care Net on the other hand is non-profit.

Section 7: This is a small taste of politics. Of course, if pro-abortionists don't get all that they want, at least they'll get some or most of it.

Section 8: For those of you who are wondering, Title 70 RCW is a title on Washington State public health and safety.

Now it's very likely that this bill will not pass the House and Senate. It is so badly written and "full of holes" that pro-abortionists would have a tough time supporting it. Problem is, they'll just make a new one next year, and the next year, and the next year, until something does pass. So the battle isn't over even if this bill is struck down.

Faulty Premise=Faulty Bill

I have an article below this one summarizing House Bill 1366. If I missed anything important let me know (I actually have a copy of it). Don't read this article until you've read the bill.



Now to look at each section of House Bill 1366 in a little more detail.

Section 1: Notice that limited service pregnancy centers is a universal concept. If I were to introduce a new pregnancy service provider but only have half the recources or services as Planned Parenthood, I would have to undergo the following restrictions/applications as Care Net if this bill and others like it were to pass. Notice also that abortion providers like Planned Parenthood or abortion promoters like NAF (national abortion federation) have subtly set themselves as the pregnancy service standard. Why? Because PP supposedly isn't "limited." Nowhere in this bill do PP or other aboriton providers have to undergo the same requirements.

Section 2: I agree that Health Care is important and that private information must be protected, but here's the problem. "Some limited service pregnancy centers have misled people about the nature of their services and improperly used patient health care information." This is a direct quote. Now I as an observer would like to know HOW limited service pregnancy centers (LSPC's) have deserved this accusation. Be specific! Understand that this is THE premise for the entire bill. It could just as well have read, "Since some LSPC's have misled people about their services and improperly used patient health care information, they must..." And another thing, notice the big word "some." Are there any LSPC's in particular they would care to mention?

"Limited pregnancy centers operating in WA state must provide truthful information about services they offer and properly respect a person's health care information." I love hypocritical statements like these. Have you seen the youtube video a couple articles below this one? It would be a nice thing to check up on.

Section 3: These are definitions applied to the rest of the bill.

1. "Comprehensive birth control services" means the medical evaluation and care related to the prescription or provision of contraceptive drugs/devices, and includes the provision of nondirective counseling on methods and efficacy of contraception, and the prescription or provision of contraceptive drugs or devices." Blahblahblah.

2. "Limited service pregnancy center" means an organization that advertises, offers, or provides pregnancy tests/ultrasounds, and information about adoption or abortion, whether for a fee or as a free service, but does not provide the following: prenatal medical care, comprehensive birth control services, and abortion or referrals for abortion. "LSPC" does not include health care entities licensed under Title 18 RCW, hospitals and entities licensed under Title 70 RCW, or health care providers licensed under Title 18 RCW. A LSPC remains subject to provisions of this chapter notwithstanding the presence of a licensed health care provider in the governance of, on the staff of, or acting as a volunteer with the LSPC. Whew! Told you I couldn't summarize it!

3. "Primary languages" means the most frequently spoken languages in the county in which the LSPC is located, and includes at a minimum English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Laotian, and Chinese. (This part about "primary languages" is particularly important for future reference.)

Okay, why am I listing all of this for you? It's to show how these people target limited service pregnancy centers specifically. Once they are sure that LSPC's are misguiding people, they are very detailed in their requirements. We'll proceed with the next sections shortly.

Care Net Crisis

House Bill 1366 is the newest approach pro-abortionists have taken action against our Care Net centers. The issues in this particular bill are being debated upon in our state of Washington, but there are many forms of it circulating around the country. I have the bill right here in front of me and I will try my very best to summarize it for you.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON:
Section 1: This chapter may be known and cited as the limited service pregnancy center accountability act.

Section 2: Seeking or obtaining health care is fundamental to public health and safety; Health care information is personal and if improperly used may do significant harm to the patient; and some limited service pregnancy centers have misled people about the nature of their services and improperly used patient health care information.

Limited pregnancy centers operating in WA state must provide truthful information about services they offer and properly respect a person's health care information.

Section 3: (This section is beyond my ability to summarize without rewriting it in its entirety. It provides definitions used in the rest of the bill, which we will cover in a later article.)
Section 4: A limited service pregnancy center shall make the following disclosures to those who seek services: 1. a)doesn't provide abortion/birth control services; b)does not give referrals to abortion providers/birth control services; c) does not provide medical care for pregnant women. 2. they must also provide verbally and in writing information about their services in all primary languages, thirty-point font size +, on eight and one-half inch by eleven inch paper +, posted inside and outside the building. 3. a LSPC (limited service pregnancy center) shall inform visitor that the pregnancy test is an over-the-counter product and may be self-administered.
Section 5: 1. A LSPC may not disclose health care information to any but the owner without recipient's written authorization. 2. A LSPC shall provide person tested with a free written statement of pregnancy test results in English and in the person's primary language immediately after completion of the test. 3. A LSPN shall provide a recipient's recorded health care information if requested for examination or copying, and inform recipient if it does not have said information.
Section 6: 1. Any person aggrieved by a violation of this bill may bring a civil action against a LSPC in SUPERIOR COURT to enjoin violations, recover damages sustained, together with costs of the suit and reasonable attorneys' fees. The court may, in its discretion, increase the award of damages to an amound not to exceed THREE TIMES the actual damages sustained. For the purpose of this section, "person" includes counties or other municipalities. 2. The court may in addition to damages impose on a liable party a civil fine of one thousand dollars max. to be paid to the plaintiff.
Section 7: If any part of this act is held invalid the remainder of the act is not affected.
Section 8: Section 1-7 of this act constitute a new chapter in Title 70 RCW.
House Bill 1366 passed the Committee on Health Care & Wellness Thursday Feb. 10, 2011. I assume it will now be debated in the House.

Victim

I'll never know the sweet caress
With which a mother's hand can bless;
Nor ever feel her tender kiss
Imparting safe, warm, precious bliss.

I'll know too well the terror cold
Of martyr facing lions bold;
Their pow'r unchecked will waste my life
With poison and the surgeon's knife.

My silent throes will thus adorn
My helpless frame in death forlorn.
They say I'm not a living child
But more like creatures in the wild.

I'm “not a child”—and not because
My hands resemble creatures' paws—
It's only that their length is shown
In millimeters ere I'm “grown.”

Is it because I cannot cry
In strains you hear, that I must die?
Is it for this my life is sold
For ease, convenience, coins, and gold?

I'm weak and helpless, silence-bound,
And when I'm killed I make no sound.
It's only you for me can say—
Let's end abortion in our day.

What Next? -Continued-

This last article got fairly long so I split it into two.

Now here is what I don't understand. Abortion is a massive industry in this country alone. Why then must pro-choice activists still behave so radically? Why must they lie about pro-lifers as if we were wolves in sheeps clothing? In other words, what more do they want? They have money. They have government support. They have influence and reputation favored by millions of Americans. Yet they continually struggle as if they were the minority and persecuted by those who disagree with them.

"...what do antis think they’re doing for their movement by being hostile and divisive?"

"I call them anti-choice advocates because that is what they are."

"Abortion providers are on the front lines of the critical struggle to ensure that abortion is safe and accessible. They regularly defend women's lives and health against aggressive abortion opponents seeking to deprive women access to safe abortion care."

"I find it insulting how everybody is "anti-choice" and interested in destroying women's rights and whatnot..."

"On Ash Wednesday, a traditional day for believers to repent, anti-choicers kicked off the “40 Days for Life” protests, so believers can avoid focusing on their own sin and instead scream at others for perceived sexual sin, while also avoiding thinking about their own mortality by demanding others give life against their will."

These and many more quotes available on our friend the Internet (just as a side, if you read these kinds of articles and look at the comments below them you may notice a lot of language being used to emphasize points. I noticed a lot of f-bombs among other things, which goes to show the anger displayed on these pages).

How far is the pro-choice movement willing to go? Will they be satisfied once every woman in the country decides to have abortions as an alternative to raising children? Will those who care about babies' lives have to be utterly silenced and forgotten so that peace may reign? Or is it that PP feels the pro-life movement is its biggest business competitor? Maybe we should give St. Joseph's hospital a new name. I like Women's Rights Hospital myself.
