Life at Conception

from an AFA email Action Alert:

Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) is sponsoring the "Life at Conception Act" (S.91), which will define personhood from the moment of conception. Sen. Wicker has 13 co-sponsors thus far.

In Harry Blackmun's 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, he wrote that "if personhood is established, the appellant's case (i.e., 'Roe'), of course collapses, for the fetus' right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [14th] amendment."

Under S.91, a "human person" and a "human being" includes every individual "at all stages of life, including, but not limited to, the moment of fertilization, cloning and other moment at which an individual...comes into being."

If this bill is enacted into law, it thus will not only provide protection for unborn babies, it will follow the path Justice Blackmun laid out 38 years ago for overturning Roe v. Wade, an act of judicial activism that has led to the deaths of 53 million infants before they have drawn their first breath.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) has introduced a parallel bill in the House (H.R.374) which currently has 53 co-sponsors.

Email your senator and thank him for co-sponsoring the bill or urge him to give his support to S.91.

Some of God's wisdom:

My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.

If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause: Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; and whole, as those that go down into the pit: We shall find all precious substance, we shall fill our houses with spoil: Cast in thy lot among us; let us all have one purse:

My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood. (Psalm 1:10-16)

Let's do all we can lawfully, including prayer, to end abortion. For murder is never lawful in the eyes of God. We must not consent by silence. If the ungodly continue to murder, let it be at the public protest of Christians united in God's Word.

Don't consent to the anti-Christ idea that unborn babies are blobs of tissue, not really human, not really persons. They are fully human persons, being knit together by God, known to Him before He kindled the life in the mother's womb, just in an early stage of development. Is it more just or moral to kill a three-year-old than it is to kill a thirty-year-old? Of course not. The fact that one person is younger than the other is no justification for murder. In fact, the more helpless persons are all the more to be protected.

A generation that approves the murder of the unborn in the womb is vulnerable to murder by euthanasia when they are old and have no children to want them and take care of them. They've unwittingly paved the way for their own "legal" state-sanctioned murder.

Remember, Christ never turns away any sinner who runs to Him in sincere repentence from his sin and belief in Christ for the washing away of their sins by His shed blood. For Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. A sinnner who repents causes rejoicing in heaven. If you draw near to God, He will draw near to you.
