Lessons From The Past


"Ending partial-birth abortion, which would more accurately be named "late-term murder," does not save a single
human life." — James C. Dobson, Ph.D. 1

According to the American Right To Life Partial Birth Abortion (PBA) Ban
summary, "Gonzales v. Carhart is the most brutal ruling in the history of the
U.S. Supreme Court and is a virtual manual on how abortionists can continue
to perform late-term and even partial-birth abortions. The ban and ruling
explicitly keeps partial-birth abortion legal with the justices declaring what the
misguided regulation obviously indicates, that the abortionist can deliver the
baby to the navel (a four-inch variation on standard PBA) and then kill him or
her; and he can even perform a text-book PBA if the mother is "over
dilated;" and the justices list other ways the same late-term child can be
killed, and they suggest that these other methods may indeed be more
violent (and thus more painful to the fetus) than PBA itself, but they justify
this in that the ban improves the public perception of the abortion industry."2

"No Moral Component Whatsoever"


"Why on earth I am called upon to rejoice in a decision [Gonzales vs. Carhart] that in every single line, in every
single word, in every bit of logic in the whole decision, painfully shows it's regard for a concept that violates the law
of God, the law of man, constitutional law and every sane concept of decency that anyone in this country can come
up with." — Alan Keyes 3

Pastor Bob Enyart of the Denver Bible Church, writing for Colorado Right to
Life says: "The ban itself never had even the possibility of preventing a
single abortion. The justices of the 5 to 4 majority, all of whom were
appointed by Ronald Reagan, George Bush, or George W. Bush, namely,
Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito, rendered a ruling that has no
moral component whatsoever and is merely regulatory. On page 30 at
Section IV (A), these men optimistically suggest that, 'The medical
profession, furthermore, may find different and less shocking methods to
abort the fetus in the second trimester, thereby accommodating legislative
demand.'" 4

Admitting Abortion Takes An Innocent Human Life


"It [Gonzales vs. Carhart] says you can still kill them, you just have to do it a different way." — Judge Roy Moore5

Now I am quoting the ruling verbatim. "In addition, if intact D&E is truly
necessary in some circumstances, a prior injection to kill the fetus (i.e.,
'offspring or little one') allows a doctor to perform the procedure, given
that the Act's prohibition only applies to the delivery of 'a living fetus'
(i.e., 'offspring or little one"'), 18 U. S. C. §1531(b)(1)(A). Planned
Parenthood of Central Mo. v. Danforth, 428 U. S. 52, 77-79, distinguished."6
Brothers, Margaret Sanger admits abortion takes an innocent human life.7
Even today's Supreme Court Justices admit abortion takes an innocent
human life.8

What About Us Today?


As we move closer to Saturday, January 1st, 2011, I wonder what have we
learned from our past? Today, can we admit abortion is an incontestable
evil that takes an innocent human life? Today, can we admit that abortion
is a sin, that abortion has no moral component whatsoever, that abortion
does not liberate or empower the lives of women, that we, as the Body of
Christ, have thought more about our own welfare than the welfare of women
and children? Today, can we admit that we have shamefully tolerated the
death of children, instead of rising up to save and provide for the life of
children? If not, why not? Saturday, January 1st, 2011 starts a New Year.
Ending abortion in 2011 starts with us! I wonder what could be holding us
back?

Brothers, we really need to talk.
