Show your pro-life colors this month

See these pro-life videos: An unmistakable baby at 9 weeks gestation, “Jane Roe” opposes abortion, “180” movie changes minds on abortion, Gianna Jessen survived being aborted

This January 22 is the 40th anniversary of the unconstitutional Roe v. Wade Supreme Court opinion. This devilish decision legalizing abortion on demand through all 9 months of pregnancy has resulted in the torturous deaths of some 53 million preborn babies in America.

Do you believe it’s wrong to kill innocent human beings? Do you believe a child being born is a miraculous event?

If you’re pro-life, that means you’re in favor of legal protection for preborn babies, and that you vote pro-life and you do pro-life things.

So please, this month of January, remember the babies. Below are just a few of the California pro-life events where you can stand up for those who cannot stand, and speak out for those who cannot speak. Please participate!

Pro-life Bible verses

Deliver those who are drawn toward death,
And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.
If you say, “Surely we did not know this,”
Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it?
He who keeps your soul, does He not know it?
And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?

Proverbs 24:11-12 NKJV

Is your child’s school or your church safe? Probably not.

Sunday, December 16, 2012, 2:52 am | Randy Thomasson

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about Friday’s shocking massacre of 6- and 7-year-olds — 20 children total — along with 6 adults. All these innocents slaughtered by an evil, demonic, 20-year-old murderer who gained entry to a public elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

You wouldn’t know it from listening to the mainstream media, but criminals don’t usually target people or places where they know people are armed for defense. Instead, the body bags are piling up in “gun free zones.”

In our God-ignoring, dehumanizing culture, I’m afraid we’re going to see more mass murders, like this one planned in Oklahoma but foiled just a few days ago. In schools, in theaters, in church buildings. For people are being increasingly regarded as things. Babies, children, women, men, the elderly. America’s self-centered culture and the hedonistic media messages that people digest from their youth are teaching them that other people are either useful, useless, or in the way, rather than innately precious in God’s sight.

As godlessness rises in society, violent attacks will correspondingly increase in formerly “safe” places. That’s why church shootings are on the rise, as was reported in 2007.

Consider last month in Los Angeles: “For God’s sake, if people going to church aren’t protected, then who is?” asked a nearby business owner, who bolted out of his store when he heard the gunfire and saw the dead man lying on the asphalt, surrounded by loudly grieving parishioners. — Church shooting over graffiti outrages L.A. neighborhood, L.A. Times, Nov. 5, 2012

Anti-crime expert John Lott says to protect people at churches, schools, and theaters, there need to be people inside who are armed and trained to shoot in defense. “There are simply too many possible ways to get into different buildings, as the killer at the Batman movie showed by bringing his weapons through the locked emergency door at the back of the theater,” Lott writes. “To reduce future carnage, the key is to get someone with a gun quickly at the scene. Quick responses not only limit the number of casualties, but reduce the attention these killers garner from committing their crimes. We can’t get rid of gun-free zones soon enough.”

Do you lock the door of your home at night? Do you lock your car doors? Yes, you do. Are you ready to use a gun in self defense at home to protect your family? You need to be. Will anyone protect your children if you send them away to a school, or protect your church congregation, if a crazed gunman decides to shoot up the school or the church building? The honest answer is no — not unless there are armed people there who are trained to shoot down murderous assailants.

We must stop fooling ourselves. To protect ourselves and others in our increasingly violent society, responsible citizens must be armed at home and designated, trained individuals should be armed and ready for an intruder at school campuses and where local churches gather. More schools and local churches are using paid security and putting together a comprehensive security plan. The Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock had their men bring loaded muskets into the congregation house because they knew about possible Indian attacks. We should be as wise and as loving today.

No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.
Jesus Christ in Mark 3:27 NKJV

But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.
Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:43 NKJV

Have you heard about abortionist Steven Chase Brigham? Last summer, Brigham — who “operates” in four states, including Maryland, and who has killed hundreds of preborn babies in the womb, most of them late-term — was charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of five viable, healthy babies. These were “botched” abortions where the baby still lived. And Maryland’s “viable fetus” law means that when these babies survived outside the womb, Brigham committed infanticide.

Remind yourself of babies in the womb by seeing these amazing photos

As LifeNews.com reported on January 11 this year:

Brigham operated a secret late-term abortion clinic in Elkton, Maryland, even though he had no license to practice in that state. He hired Riley to do late-term abortions there and at his abortion clinic in Baltimore. Brigham would start the late-term abortions at his office in New Jersey, then caravan the laboring women to Elkton where the abortions would be completed. The clandestine abortion scheme was discovered after a woman suffered a life-threatening botched abortion in August, 2010. When police raided the Elkton abortion clinic, they discovered the remains of 35 aborted babies, one of which was 33 weeks gestation.

OR president Troy Newman provided more details about what was found. “Violations found during an inspection that took place on May 26, 2011, discovered out-of-date medicine, metal instruments with a brown material in the hinges and inside the supposedly sterile packaging, surgical instruments tossed in unsterilized drawers, and surgical instruments stored in a ‘musty’ smelling suitcase in broken wrappers – all of which were considered by employees to be ready for use on patients,” Newman said. “Also discovered was a freezer where ‘Infectious Waste,’ (the remains of aborted babies), was stored that was smeared with what an employee acknowledged was blood and contained a thick layer of frozen blood in the bottom.”

Don’t look away. For, as evil and gruesome as this “Dr. Death” is, the decision to kill their babies by abortion was first made by pregnant women and teenage girls. They believed the death of a little baby was acceptable and preferable.

What if you were that baby? Wouldn’t you want your mother to change her mind? What if you were being threatened in your home by a dangerous criminal waving scissors at you? Wouldn’t you want the police to burst in and save your life?

This is the desperate sense of urgency you and all people with intact consciences must have. Realize that nearly 58 million babies in America have been killed by abortion since the Roe v. Wade ruling on January 22, 1973. That’s 1 of 6 Americans and 1 of 3 young people born since this unconstitutional edict. All dead through the torture of abortion.

This is truly a matter of life and death, for babies are being aborted every day. They all have a beating heart, brain waves, developing organs, and can feel great pain like you can.

This is why you must get uncomfortable, cancel your other plans if possible, and challenge yourself to spend some time this week to love defenseless, voiceless babies. Love is a choice. Love is an action.

Be their Voice. Be their Defender. Be the Conscience of our land. Stand up today and Saturday. March in San Francisco or participate in a pro-life event near you:
