Take a Stand

***I wanted to warn you ahead of time that any "abortion" word links & also the "this" word link will take you to a site with pictures of aborted babies. They are graphic, but I think they need to be seen. The Truth needs to be known. These pictures are definitely not appropriate for young children.*****

January 22, 1973

The day that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that abortion be made legal in all 50 states, for any reason, throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

In the 37 years following that ruling, 50 million babies have had their lives aborted.

Imagine all the people living in the states of Wyoming, Vermont, North Dakota, South Dakota, Alaska, Delaware, Montana, Rhode Island, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Maine, Idaho, Nebraska, West Virgina, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Kansas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Iowa, Connecticut, Oklahoma, Oregon and Kentucky.

Now imagine all of those people, dead.

That's 50 million.

Why can so many people shake their heads and tear up when they hear of a baby being shaken 'til dead, but have no reaction when a baby, just months from entering the world, has it's beating heart stopped.

People say it's a mother's right.

Then why can't a mother choose to put down her 8-month-old or 2-year-old or 15-year-old? Isn't that a mother's right as well, then? I mean, the child is hers, right? Maybe it's just not the right time for that mother. Her husband up and left her, she's alone in the world and she's just not prepared to raise kids by herself. She wants to have a good solid career before going it alone. There is the option of adoption, of course, but that's alot of paperwork...who has time for paperwork? No, no, just going to the doctor and having the child put down, it's just easier. There'll be time for more kids after she finds a good job and another husband.

Makes sense, right?

I didn't think so.

Why is killing an unborn child any different?

A baby's heart begins beating just 18 days after conception.









The baby's brain waves can be measured at 42 days.

By the time most women find out they're pregnant, all the signs that hospitals use to judge whether a person is alive or not are present in that baby.


"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 139:16




There's a double-standard in America.

Doctor's listen to unborn baby's heartbeats, they do ultrasounds to make sure they are growing well and, in some cases, they even operate on them to save their lives.

And then they turn around and dismember another unborn baby and pull the baby out in pieces. Or use a salt saline that burns the baby inside and out. Or pull the baby's body into the birth canal, shove a pair of scissors in the baby's head and suck their brains out.*

It's hard to read, I know. But this, this is what is happening to babies in America every 24 seconds.

The truth needs to be heard.

These children need to be saved.

YOU can save those lives.

"Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, 'but we knew nothing about this,' does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not He who guards your life know it? Will He not repay each person according to what he has done?"
Proverbs 24:11-12
