Editorial: Winning the War on Abortion (9.23.2003)

By Angela Wittman

"The annual report from the Illinois Department of Public Health says 46,945 abortions were performed in the state in 2002. That's up just less than 1 percent, or 399 abortions, from the 46,546 reported in 2001, and up 1,061 from the 45,884 abortions reported in the state in 2000." (Taken from "Abortions in Illinois Rise Slightly", Bloomington Pantagraph, 9/22/03.)

Dear Friends,

Just moments ago I received this alert from Illinois Family Institute, "IFI E-ALERT: FINAL VOTE SOON ON PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION BAN." Being a pro-life activist it immediately caught my attention. I scanned down the alert and checked to see how my U.S. Senator and Congressman have voted in the past. (I do not consider Dick Durbin my U.S. Senator as he seems to be too alien to represent southern Illinois values minus Carbondale, of course.)

As I continued reading I came across this quote from Dr. James Dobson of "Focus on the Family" concerning the gruesome murder called Partial Birth Abortion which he referred to as "just inches from infanticide." Just inches from infanticide? Dear friends, if we truly believe life begins at conception, then the killing of babies in the womb at any stage by any means is infanticide. I submit to you that when we stop using language like those who advocate the killing of pre-born children, we will make even greater strides in the abortion war. Our thinking must be changed to that of the baby is a living soul at any stage of development in the womb and killing that child is the crime of murder.

Are you wondering where you as an individual or your church can start to affect change? Perhaps these words that a dear friend and pro-life gentleman in Pennsylvania recently wrote will give you the needed direction and encouragement: "We know instinctively that the children would want our assistance if they were mature enough to understand their situation. And we know that they truly need our help since they are helpless and defenseless. But the judicially-imposed LAW of Roe v. Wade coerces us to ignore and harden our Christian conscience--our known DUTY to our "neighbor" in the womb. In time we grow callous and more easily inclined to react to ANY defense of the unborn with discomfort or even scorn. How easy it is to just walk by on the other side of the road!! Pray that our hearts, like that of the good Samaritan, would remain soft and malleable to our Saviour's touch!"

Yes, dear friends, let us pray that our hearts will "remain soft and malleable" and we will respond to the "Saviour's touch." I pray we will each take up our cross and follow Him into the battle for the right of life for the most defenseless and innocent of human beings to live in and out of the womb --beautiful babies. We must be courageous and speak the truth with all boldness. This is truly how we will win the war on abortion and each individual battle. The LORD and the children are counting on us. Amen.

57th Anniversary of Death of Racist, Eugenicist, Serial Adulteress, Pioneer of Birth Control, Founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger on September 6, 1966 (9/6/66)

From Steve Lefemine, Christians for Personhood : 'Eugenics and Planned Parenthood – Margaret Sanger' Forgotten History "The term eugenics is basically a set of beliefs and practices that aim to improve the genetic quality of a human population, historically by excluding people and groups judged to be inferior and promoting those judged to be superior. But the Germans did not invent eugenics. In fact they were inspired by the founder of the taxpayer funded Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger. The truth behind the genesis of that organization and its founder are much darker than most Americans realize. " Hosted by Colin D.

Is Donald Trump Pro-Choice Again?

 Posted at  American ProLifer: Published September 18, 2023 Asked whether he would support a 15 week abortion ban, Trump refused to answer. He also would not say if the preborn baby has any constitutional rights. NBC’s Meet the Press aired the first extensive mainstream media interview with former President Donald Trump of the 2024 campaign. The interview Kicked off the popular Sunday morning political show under a new host, Kristen Welker. During the interview, Welker peppered Trump with questions, often attempting to fact-check him with dubious claims of her own. On abortion, Ms. Welker took a decidedly pro-abortion position, presenting only the abortion lobby’s talking points and falsely “fact-checking” Trump by stating that Democrats do not support abortion until birth, which of course, they do.
