20 Reasons Why the 20 Week Abortion Ban is Not Good



By Kevan Myers - Posted at  There's Still Time to Win a Battle Before the Sun Goes Down:

I cannot celebrate the 20 week abortion ban because I love my neighbor. The Bible describes true agape love (called charity) in "the Love Chapter", saying, "Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth" (I Corinthians 13:6).

20 REASONS why the ban is bad.


1. It is ageist in nature.
Judging an individual, less human, and less worthy of protection based on their age, size, level of development, location, etc. Ageism is judging "according to appearance" violating Christ's command: "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24). Ageism is evil. It must be repented of and forsaken.

2. It is completely arbitrary, moved by personal whim rather than truth. We know (Biblically, scientifically, medically) that a human's life begins at conception. To say "We will only protect you from murder once you can feel pain" is just as subjectively arbitrary as "once you pass puberty", "once you can vote", or "once you come out of your mother's body". If we should be happy that at least some humans will be protected, then why don't we celebrate Roe v. Wade? Roe protects humans once they're born. Fighting arbitrariness in an arbitrary way is ridiculous.

3. It causes unequal treatment of humans.
The law should establish equity, equal just and protection for all. The famous statue "Justice" is pictured with a blindfold, not favoring a side in the case based on who the players are. In the Law (see Exodus 23:1-9 for example), God warned to avoid respect of persons in judgment. The all wise God declared "It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment" (Proverbs 24:23). The prophets decried the lack of equity in their day:

"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter."
(Isaiah 59:14).

"Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity." (Micah 3:9).
Pro-Life leaders should heed this warning. This ban establishes inequity, NOT equity. And inequity IS iniquity.

4. It undermines what we profess to believe. If someone says that they believe that humans begin at conception and that abortion is a wrongful killing of said human, yet says that you can kill that human at any point after conception, they have exposed themselves as inconsistent and hypocritical. And the world sees through it.

I WAS A DISNEY PRINCESS AND HAD AN ABORTION

By Deanna Falchook - Posted at Medium:

I woke up this morning in the shadows of Cinderella Castle, to a phone call from a friend who knows my story well. She informed me of a recent tweet by Planned Parenthood regarding the need for a Disney Princess who’s had an abortion.

We need a disney princess who’s had an abortion / We need a disney princess who’s pro-choice / We need a disney princess who’s an undocumented immigrant / We need a disney princess who’s actually a union worker / We need a disney princess who’s trans.
In 1981, I worked at Disneyworld as a Singer/Dancer where my voice was used in recordings as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty for special events and ongoing shows. I performed on average 5 shows a day in front of Cinderella’s castle singing and dancing to “Some Day my Prince Will Come,” and “When You Wish Upon a Star.” At the age of 18, I became pregnant and had an abortion to keep my job as a singing princess. There was no pressure from the company or management to abor…
