Reader Inspired Story: Abortion Is Murder.

Posted on December 13, 2012


The United States (The Gaslamp Post) A reader was kind enough to fill me in on a pro-life project that I had previously not known about.  Details about the project follow the article below. – tglp

Abortion is murder.

There is no other way to put it.  The procedure known as abortion is the intentional barbaric slaughter of an innocent human being in their most defenseless stage.

It comes in various forms and has different labels in our society, but it is murder nonetheless.  The purveyors of the horrendous act consider themselves moral, some even heroes or champions.  They believe in their own lies so much that others follow blindly, also believing in the lie.

It’s not a child, it’s a choice, they say.  It’s not a human, it’s only a fetus, they say.  It’s not alive, it’s only a tissue, they say.

Exactly… THEY SAY.

Countless studies have shown that a baby growing in their mother’s womb is able to respond to outside stimuli.  Video evidence exists which displays an aware infant en utero, interacting with their mother.

It is no more simply tissue than you are.  To terminate its life is an act of murder, and any other way of describing it would have to involve some sort of compromise.  In other words, it would involve a lie.

We all know what a lie is, right?  A non truth, either deliberate or by omission.

Lie #1:  It’s not a child, it’s a choice.

“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from Him.”

Psalm 127:3

It is not for us to decide when life is convenient.  Life is not about convenience, life is about living, and each day given unto you is a gift.

Lie #2:  It’s not human, it’s only a fetus.

“41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear!

43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?

44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.”

Luke 1:41-44

Here we are given an example of a “fetus” reacting.  In these verses, Elizabeth, wife of Zacharias and mother-to-be of the famed John the Baptist felt the tiny life inside of her start stirring when she heard the voice of Mary, the mother-to-be of Jesus Christ.

How is it that the baby growing inside of her is not alive?  How is it that a mother can think in her mind that the life she knows is in her womb is anything but a life?  Is that life not part of her as well?

Lie #3:  It’s not alive, it’s only tissue.

“13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”

Psalm 139:13-16

Not alive?  Tissue?  When you were in your mother’s womb, God was at work through her.  He was there and He knew you.

There are occasions where birth defects do happen, but one must understand that it’s not God’s fault, He has given us free will.  Sometimes a junkie gets pregnant.  There are things in the environment that can affect a baby in the womb, but we live around them.

Also, and as heartbreaking as it can be, there are times when miscarriages happen.

Trust me, I understand birth defects; I have one myself which kept me out of the service.  I blame no one for that, but make the most of my abilities.

I’m glad my mother didn’t view me solely as tissue.

An abortion survivor tells you her story

The sixth commandment is “Thou Shalt Not Kill”.  Many interpret that to mean that killing in general is what the commandment is against.  Some think that it also includes hunting, or soldiers in battle, and yet some believe that it also encompasses criminals and capital punishment.  In order to understand God’s decree, you must look at it in context.

In Hebrew (the original language the Old Testament was written in), Exodus 20, the passage which contains the 6th Commandment reads, “lo teer tsakh” (pronounced, low – sth eer –  rrrats-achk)

In English, we lose a lot in translation because we speak very lazy.  One word could mean very many different things.  These words in Hebrew are unmistakable.

“Lo teer tsakh”, paying close attention to the verb “tsakh” (also pronounced Ratsakh or Ratsah), means You shall not murder, but is specific.  Tsakh is the murder of those innocent or defenseless, not of criminals or enemies in war.

What is abortion again?

The only way to make it not murder is through a lie, and it has been a lie since the time when the United States Supreme Court ruled that abortion in America should be legal.  Earlier this year, the woman who used the alias Jane Row came forward and admitted that she had lied to the Supreme Court.  Norma McCorvey admitted in October to buckling to the pressure of feminist lawyers, and lied about being raped.

“For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.”

Luke 12:2

This revelation blew the lid off of a 40-year-old mistake on the part of the American people, which has led to the deaths of over 55 million babies.  Think about that for a moment; that is 18% of the United States population as of right now – dead over a lie.

Think back a little bit earlier this year to the fiasco in the media and the silliness behind the “War on Women”.  Interesting how quickly it evolved, wasn’t it?

First Hillary Rosen puts her foot in her mouth saying that Mitt Romney’s wife has never worked a day in her life because she was a homemaker and raised 5 sons (so much for women’s equality, huh?), and it was announced as the “Mommy Wars”.  From there the battlefront was moved to the GOP wanting to take women’s rights away.

At that moment, the “War on Women” was born (no pun intended).

Contraception was argued as a human right because Sandra Fluke went broke buying birth control, and abortion somehow morphed in the minds of the collectively stupid to “women’s health care”.  If you’re having difficulty trying to figure out what abortion has to do with women’s healthcare, don’t worry, begin taking massive amounts of Prozac until it starts to make sense.

When logic was injected, and pundits said that they had no problem with abortion but that they just didn’t want to pay for it, the opposition fired back with Planned Parenthood doesn’t take federal dollars.

Then just a few short weeks later as the War on Women waged on in the media, the feminists began screaming about wanting the GOP out of their uteruses and skinned them alive at their rallies over threatening to defund Planned Parenthood.  This happened right in front of you!


First they say that tax dollars don’t fund Planned Parenthood, and then they say they do.  HELLO!

Going back to the feminist rally rants, what was that one procedure that they were all screaming against?  The use of the “wand” while performing an ultrasound was equated to rape, so THAT had to go.

Yes, you read that correctly.  It’s not rape if the doctor has to go in there to hack and slash the baby, but use of the ultrasound instrument is.

If that sounds like a load of BS to you, there’s a reason for that.  It’s because it IS!  The real reason that they wanted to do away with the wand is because there was a pretty good chance that if the mother heard the baby’s heartbeat, she would back out of the abortion.

WARNING:  Graphic and disturbing video

No abortion means no charge for services.  No charge means no money for the clinic – and they couldn’t have THAT now could they?

Now do you see?  They themselves KNOW that they must keep the lie going in order to make their money.  They don’t care about women’s health any more than they do about the tiny life they just snuffed out and threw into a garbage bag.

If they did, then ask yourself this folks; earlier this year a woman in Chicago had just had an abortion but was injured.  In July of this year, Tonya Reaves had gone into a Planned Parenthood clinic for an abortion and suffered internal bleeding.  They just left her there until someone finally realized that she was dying.

They called an ambulance for her but she died a short time later in the hospital.  Her death was ruled an accident but experts agreed that this sort of thing is avoidable, and it’s due to a mistake by the person performing the abortion.

They didn’t call an ambulance because they gave a crap about Ms. Reaves, they called them because they didn’t want the stigma of a patient dying there in their clinic!

Here’s something to think about; abortions come in various styles, ranging from a pill to an actual invasive procedure.  The most disgusting and barbaric is the late-term abortion.

This is where a doctor who is performing the abortion dilates the mother and then a pair of scissors is jammed into the back of the baby’s skull as it is being delivered.  The baby is either full term or close to, when it is brought out into the world just to die a horribly gruesome death.

How is that not murder?

In 2007, a teenage girl gave birth to a healthy baby and then stabbed it to death in her parent’s home.  17-year-old Nichole Marie Beercroft birthed a baby girl in the laundry room, before she stabbed the infant 135 times and then put the newborn’s body in the garbage can outside.  She was given life in prison but her conviction was over turned this year.  She was awarded a retrial.

In 2011, another teenager gave birth to a healthy baby but she too stabbed it to death.  16-year-old Rebecca Blackmore gave birth to a baby girl in her bedroom and then stabbed her to death.  She placed her newborn’s body in her closet and then went to the hospital where she sought treatment.  She initially told medical staff that the baby was stillborn, but officials soon saw the multiple stab wounds.  She was charged with murder.

In November of this year, a 21-year-old woman stabbed her newborn mere hours after giving birth in her parent’s home.  She was charged with murder and aggravated assault.

Why were these mothers charged with killing their babies at the time of birth if a doctor can do it legally?  Either way the baby’s innocent life is robbed from them in what should be the most precious moments.

Could it be because of who is or isn’t getting paid?  How is it not murder if one person does it but murder if another does?

How can a drunk driver be charged with murder if he strikes the car of a pregnant woman and she loses the baby, yet an abortion doctor can run the streets a free man and earn a lavish lifestyle?

Another angle that the liars like to play is the one about rape and incest.  They have to keep abortion legal for cases of rape and incest.

If you dare question that then you are shredded and ripped to pieces in the liberal media.  How dare you say anything about a rape or incest victim?

My question is how dare they use victims of rape and incest to hide their shame of their own adultery.  How dare they use real victims as human shields in order to keep the light off of them so that they can kill what they consider an inconvenience?  These women are keeping the spotlight on someone else, exploiting the tragedy of another woman in order to justify their own guilt.

Here’s the thing though, of all abortions, very few are due to rape or incest.  Rape and incest only account for 1% of all abortions world-wide!  6% are labeled as a health threat to the mother…

A whopping 93% of abortions are performed for social reasons!

Since it’s inception of legality here in the United States, abortion is a topic based on lies.  It takes lies to make it acceptable, it takes lies to keep women coming, it takes lies to keep it legal, and it takes lies to make you think that it is anything but murder.

Heed my words America; God hates hands that shed innocent blood.  A child is a gift, and you are entrusted with that gift.  If you are considering an abortion, please, I’m begging you to think it over.  Realize that what you are considering is murder.  Not only can you not take it back, but you will forever have a mark on your soul.

Having an abortion does not make you liberated, it does not make you independent, it does not make you cool; it makes you a murderer.

The ability to conceive and carry a child is a gift in and of itself.  Think about how many couples out there cannot conceive, and then ask yourself how you could just throw life away.


There will be a price to pay for murdering those most vulnerable amongst us.  One day America will face judgment, and what will we say when we are shown that we stood by and did nothing?

13 “Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its people and their animals,

14 even if these three men—Noah, Daniel, and Job—were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord.

15 “Or if I send wild beasts through that country and they leave it childless and it becomes desolate so that no one can pass through it because of the beasts,

16 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved, but the land would be desolate.

Ezekiel 14:13-16

Not to act, is to act.  Not to speak, is to speak.  God will not hold you blameless.

Now for the project I had mentioned to you earlier:

I have decided to participate in the next Red Envelope Day.  Red Envelope Day is a day when volunteers send empty red envelopes to Washington D.C., signifying individual voters who are are protesting the taking of millions of innocent lives lost through abortion.  Please consider joining me.

Once Again, We Are Called To Stand In The Gap

Red Envelope Day Is Back!

The unborn cannot speak for themselves.
They need you. They need your voice. NOW!

In 2009, Red Envelope Day was the largest citizen demonstration since the Vietnam Conflict.
We voiced our concern to about a vehemently Pro-Abortion White House then…

And in 2013, our unified voice MUST make Red Envelope Day a bigger, better,
and even more effective Declaration for Life.

The outcome of this election was difficult… and that is all the more reason for your voice to be heard. Right now, you can send your voice directly to Washington D.C., deep into the Halls of Congress, beyond the marble columns of the Supreme Court, and into the heart of the Oval Office.Send Red Envelope Day Cards here!

Join millions of others who believe as you dothat all life is sacred. Let your voice be heard.

Click the “Act Now” button to the right to send your empty Red Envelopes easily and automatically…

January 22, 2013 is the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Four decades of innocents killing. Four decades of tolerating murder. Four decades of shame upon our nation. That is why we are calling upon you to help us make January 22, 2013Red Envelope Day 2013
