You’re probably laughing at the title of this post. Of course abortion happens in America! But what do we really know about it? What do you know about abortion? As a teenager, I teamed up with my brothers to collect signatures on petitions we designed. These petitions were written before the Infant Born Alive Act and the Partial Birth Abortion Ban were passed. So, we asked people to sign petitions supporting these two kind of laws. Bascially, if babies survived an abortion, they couldn’t be killed after birth and babies couldn’t be aborted when they were on their way out of the womb.
Well, one guy asked me, “What is partial birth abortion?” I told him that when the baby was almost delivered, a doctor would stick scissors in the back of the baby’s skull, make a hole, and suck out the baby’s brains. “No,” he said. “That is not true. You’re making that up.” And he refused to sign. Of course, after all the Congressional and courtroom debate on the Partial Birth Abortion ban, we know that it is indeed true what I told him. Another lady was horrifed when we told her what partial birth abortion was, and she asked if this was really happening in America.
Although partial birth abortion is outlawed now, that DOES NOT mean that babies who can survive on their own aren’t being killed in similarly barbaric ways. Take late term-abortionists who commonly inject poision into the heart of unborn, late-term, completely viable babies. These abortion doctors have to watch on an ultrasound screen so that they can find the heart of the baby…a heart that is beating and pumping…and inject it with poison. D & E is still a common procedure as well for later-term abortions where the baby is literally ripped apart by the doctor and then vacuumed out of his mother’s womb. Yes, these things still happen in America.
The question is WHY??? Why do we turn a blind eye and remain ignorant when another new life is snuffed out about every 24 seconds? What are you doing to stop this? Why does Planned Parenthood still receive well over $300 million ( yes MILLION) in taxpayer dollars every year, especially when they report profits of over $60 million?? And they claim to be a non-profit. Right. They also pay their president over $385,000 a year.
“Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in tax dollars in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2008, and it paid its president, Cecile Richards, $385,163, plus another $11,876 in benefits and deferred compensation. According to a “fact sheet” published by the organization, Planned Parenthood Affiliate Health Centers performed 324,008 abortions in 2008.” http://winteryknight.wordpress.com/2010/11/22/how-much-money-does-planned-parenthood-receive-from-taxpayers/

WHAT CAN I DO???
We have to stop asking, “Is this really happening in America?” We should know what happens in our own country. We should do something about it. Pray that God would send you people who are considering abortion so you can help them choose life. Find a good pregnancy center to get involved with. Start a post-abortion counseling ministry at your church. Launch a pro-life political or educational campaign. Sponsor pro-life TV or radio commercials. Write a blog yourself and get it out to people. Write and call your political officials. Run for office yourself. Schedule a pro-life presentation at your school, church, club, business, or organization. Get the word out. Don’t ever stop. If you need more information on how to do any of these things, comment on this post and I’ll get you the info you need.
Finally, if you want to know what abortionists REALLY think of human life, visit this page for one example: http://drhern.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=25%3Ahomo-ecophagus-the-human-species-as-a-malignant-process&catid=6%3Apublications-in-peer-review-journals-invited-book&lang=en&Itemid=6. Basically, this abortion doctor believes that human are like a global cancer and that the human species displays the characteristics of a malignant process. No wonder these kind of people willingly kill thousands of babies. I don’t think it’s because they want to help women…
