If you make the choice to believe that the unborn are not
human beings -- beings that God says "Thou shalt not
kill" -- then your choice can lead to the killing of anyone
and everyone. All you have to do is say they they are
"actual" humans. Consider a recent article from The
Parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies
killed because they are “morally irrelevant” and ending
their lives is no different to abortion, a group of medical
ethicists linked to Oxford University has argued.
article, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics,
says newborn babies are not “actual persons” and do not
have a “moral right to life”. The academics also argue
that parents should be able to have their baby killed if it
turns out to be disabled
when it is born.
why not substitute "Negro," "female," or any
modifier you want, if you don't like that kind of person?
Some pro-life people would counter that a newborn baby is at
least a "potential"
human being. But it's not enough to be a "potential"
person, according to these "scholars":
Rather than being “actual persons”, newborns were “potential
persons”. They explained: “Both a fetus and a newborn
certainly are human beings and potential
persons, but neither is a ‘person’ in the sense of ‘subject
of a moral right to life’.
This means killing off the elderly is legitimate, because
they no longer have "potential." But even if they did
have "potential" in some sense, obviously that's not
enough to secure their right to live. Kill them all.
What if I am an "actual" human being, but scholars
say I lose that status if I convert to Judaism, Catholicism, or
anarchism? Does a believer in an unapproved belief lose her
status as an "actual" human being, and can therefore

An unborn baby is as unable to care for herself as President
Woodrow Wilson was on October
3, 1919, or Ronald Reagan on June
1, 2004. Without the care of others, all three would starve
to death. The intentional killing of either an unborn baby or an
incapacitated President is certainly murder, regardless of their
ability to make a "meaningful contribution" to
society, or converse with loved ones.
The government does not allow a mother to kill her 18-month
old child by dropping the child in the middle of a national
park. That baby will not be able to live outside the womb or
home of the mother. This lack of "viability" does not
justify the killing of 18-month old children. Nor does it
justify the killing of the unborn.
Proponents of abortion say "it's my body." Life
-- the body of a genetically distinct individual -- begins
at conception. A mother has no more of a right to kill the
life that's nursing in "her
body" than she does to kill a life that's nursing on
The "right to abortion" is essentially the right to
have sex without consequences and without personal
responsibility. The "right to abortion" is the
creation of "the sexual revolution."

million abortions are performed around the world every year.
That's an average of 136,986.3 abortions every single day. Summary
- The State of World Population 2000
Abortion is never necessary to "preserve
the life of the mother."
If a pregnancy is not developing normally and the mother's
life is in imminent danger, then the baby's life is also in
danger; if the mother dies, so will the baby. If the baby must
be removed from its present location to save the mother's life,
the baby can be re-placed somewhere where growth can continue,
if not in the mother, then in an incubator.
Attempting to preserve the baby's life at this point will not
endanger any mother. Deliberately killing
the baby is never necessary. Every attempt should be
made to preserve the life of the baby. The death of an unborn
baby should always be a tragic and unfortunate consequence of
underdeveloped medical technology, never an intentional choice.
Many pro-abortionists say that abortion should be "safe,
legal, and rare." Why should the exercise
of a "constitutional right" be "rare?" This
is like a government censor saying freedom of the press
should be "rare," or a pro-lynching KKK member saying trials
by jury should be "rare." Abortions should be rare
because they are murder.
Should abortion be illegal even in cases of rape and incest?
Yes, emphatically. A person should not be put to death because
her father is a rapist. Nor should a person be put to death
because his father committed incest.
Today in Planned Parenthood abortion facilities across the
country, there are girls under 18 who are getting abortions.
They were statutorily raped by men over 18. Planned Parenthood
does not care. They tell these girls not to disclose the age of
their rapist. Aggressors against women use the mentality of the
rape- or incest-exeption to destroy evidence of their crimes.
For these reasons, there should not be any exception to a
general prohibition on abortion on the grounds of rape or
Abortion for rape emboldens the rapists, puts women at a
higher risk for rape, multiplies her suffering and increases
the rapist population.
Often an underage young woman that has been raped is taken
to the abortion mill by the rapist. Many times he is a member
of her own family. Her rapist convinced her, long before they
ever darken the door of the abortuary that it would be in her
best interest never to speak of her abuse. At the mill no
questions are asked, she’s aborted and she’s sent home
with the rapist, only to be assaulted again. No authorities
are contacted, the outward evidence of her abuse is destroyed,
and no one is the wiser, leaving her with no way out. Upon
leaving the mill she’s been violated and traumatized once
again, only this time it’s been done “legally” by the
The abortion mill is the pedophile’s insurance policy. He
knows that if he impregnates his young victim that abortion
will destroy the evidence of his crime. Therefore he is free
to abuse the young woman with impunity and the abortionist is
his accomplice. Abortion for rape and incest only encourages
the rapist to repeat his crime.
If prolifers sponsor bills that include the rape and incest
exceptions we must understand that we are directly attacking
the personhood of the child, and the sacredness of all life.
We are also leaving young women without protection while we
legislate their innocent children to death. All of which will
embolden the rapist and increase the number of rapists among
Although these exceptions should be eliminated, any state
legislation which eliminates some but not all exceptions should
still be supported as a stepping-stone to eliminating all

The end of abortion is not a quick fix. It has taken 500
years for Christendom to be unraveled completely and it
may take another 500 years, if God so wills it, for a new
Christendom to fully arise. This rebirth entails a moral
and spiritual dynamics, not a political and judicial one.
For a Christian the most evil element of abortion is the
mortal sin of the perpetrators - not the death of the
infant, as sorrowful as that is. It is the spiritual death
of this country and the choking out of authentic
Christianity that is the essential evil we must confront.
It wouldn't matter if all abortions were outlawed
tomorrow, abortion would still remain and the evil that
emanates from a decadent populace and an omnipotent state
would continue to increase.
Fight abortion not by feeding the State leviathan so it
can gobble up the saved unborn 18 years later in a draft
or sooner in some other form of indentured servitude or
indoctrination or incarceration; but rather by
strengthening the autonomy of the family, the community,
and the natural and sociological regions of this country.
Fight abortion by reestablishing the sacrosanct status of
the home, which is itself the womb of community and
Christianity. Fight it by being uncowed by the police
state. Fight it by rejecting legal positivism, the
ideology that holds that just because the state declares
something to be legal or illegal it is. Fight it by
studying truth, especially the ancient truth of our
Western Christian civilization. Fight it by becoming
virtuous and holy. Fight it by heroically preaching the
Gospel in lifestyle and words. Fight it by the prophetic
witness even if it includes "civil
disobedience." Fight it by being open to life and
valuing of all human life even when those lives are deemed
to be "enemies" or "non-persons" by
the state. Fight it by establishing families united in
sacrosanct indissolubility. Fight abortion by fighting the
ungodly regime in Washington that rapaciously seeks to
supplant both faith and family.
Dear Christians, refuse to offer a pinch of incense by
refusing to punch the ballot for either official
Republican-Democratic Axis candidates. Refuse to offer
tribute to the gods of American socialism,
totalitarianism, and imperialism and their incarnation in
the president. Resist participation in this sham election.
The USA is the most powerful and hence the most dangerous
nation in the history of the world. Its potential for evil
is absolutely unprecedented. If there is not a reversion
to the constitution then totalitarianism is inevitable. If
this reversion does not occur the only hope for our
country will be in those willing to give their lives as
witnesses to Christ against the antichrist of the State.
Whoever occupies the Whitened Sepulcher House this
January is a tool of the powers and principalities of this
world and of the devil. And all who facilitate the
legitimacy of this sham election are, at best, the devil’s
dupes, at worst his minions. ~ Christians

So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him; male and female he created
them. Genesis 1:27
I have come that they may have life,
and have it to the full. John 10:10
Although public sentiment has moved in a pro-life direction,
we note with sadness that pro- abortion ideology prevails today
in our government. Many in the present administration want to
make abortions legal at any stage of fetal development, and want
to provide abortions at taxpayer expense. Majorities in both
houses of Congress hold pro-abortion views. The Supreme Court,
whose infamous 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade stripped the
unborn of legal protection, continues to treat elective abortion
as a fundamental constitutional right, though it has upheld as
constitutionally permissible some limited restrictions on
abortion. The President says that he wants to reduce the
"need" for abortion—a commendable goal. But he has
also pledged to make abortion more easily and widely available
by eliminating laws prohibiting government funding, requiring
waiting periods for women seeking abortions, and parental
notification for abortions performed on minors. The elimination
of these important and effective pro-life laws cannot reasonably
be expected to do other than significantly increase the number
of elective abortions by which the lives of countless children
are snuffed out prior to birth. Our commitment to the sanctity
of life is not a matter of partisan loyalty, for we recognize
that in the thirty-six years since Roe v. Wade, elected
officials and appointees of both major political parties have
been complicit in giving legal sanction to what Pope John Paul
II described as "the culture of death." We call on all
officials in our country, elected and appointed, to protect and
serve every member of our society, including the most
marginalized, voiceless, and vulnerable among us.
culture of death inevitably cheapens life in all its stages and
conditions by promoting the belief that lives that are
imperfect, immature or inconvenient are discardable. As
predicted by many prescient persons, the cheapening of life that
began with abortion has now metastasized. For example, human
embryo-destructive research and its public funding are promoted
in the name of science and in the cause of developing treatments
and cures for diseases and injuries. The President and many in
Congress favor the expansion of embryo-research to include the
taxpayer funding of so-called "therapeutic cloning."
This would result in the industrial mass production of human
embryos to be killed for the purpose of producing genetically
customized stem cell lines and tissues. At the other end of
life, an increasingly powerful movement to promote assisted
suicide and "voluntary" euthanasia threatens the lives
of vulnerable elderly and disabled persons. Eugenic notions such
as the doctrine of lebensunwertes Leben ("life
unworthy of life") were first advanced in the 1920s by
intellectuals in the elite salons of America and Europe. Long
buried in ignominy after the horrors of the mid-20th century,
they have returned from the grave. The only difference is that
now the doctrines of the eugenicists are dressed up in the
language of "liberty," "autonomy," and
We will be united and untiring in our
efforts to roll back the license to kill that began with the
abandonment of the unborn to abortion. We will work, as we have
always worked, to bring assistance, comfort, and care to
pregnant women in need and to those who have been victimized by
abortion, even as we stand resolutely against the corrupt and
degrading notion that it can somehow be in the best interests of
women to submit to the deliberate killing of their unborn
children. Our message is, and ever shall be, that the just,
humane, and truly Christian answer to problem pregnancies is for
all of us to love and care for mother and child alike.
truly prophetic Christian witness will insistently call on those
who have been entrusted with temporal power to fulfill the first
responsibility of government: to protect the weak and vulnerable
against violent attack, and to do so with no favoritism,
partiality, or discrimination. The Bible enjoins us to defend
those who cannot defend themselves, to speak for those who
cannot themselves speak. And so we defend and speak for the
unborn, the disabled, and the dependent. What the Bible and the
light of reason make clear, we must make clear. We must be
willing to defend, even at risk and cost to ourselves and our
institutions, the lives of our brothers and sisters at every
stage of development and in every condition.
is not confined to our own nation. Around the globe, we are
witnessing cases of genocide and "ethnic cleansing,"
the failure to assist those who are suffering as innocent
victims of war, the neglect and abuse of children, the
exploitation of vulnerable laborers, the sexual trafficking of
girls and young women, the abandonment of the aged, racial
oppression and discrimination, the persecution of believers of
all faiths, and the failure to take steps necessary to halt the
spread of preventable diseases like AIDS. We see these
travesties as flowing from the same loss of the sense of the
dignity of the human person and the sanctity of human life that
drives the abortion industry and the movements for assisted
suicide, euthanasia, and human cloning for biomedical research.
And so ours is, as it must be, a truly consistent ethic of love
and life for all humans in all circumstances.
