Today is January 22, 2009. On this day 36 years ago abortion on demand became the law of our land. Since then we have put to death 40,000,000 of our children. Do you care?
I can hardly believe the day has come and on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade no less. I must confess my surprise that deliverance would come under our new president Barack Obama but alas, it has. Did you miss the news? If we can take President Obama at his word today we can expect soon the end of the practice of abortion. Here is his statement:
“First, I can say without exception or equivocation that the United States will not torture…
How we have prayed for this, the day when America would recognize the torture it has inflicted on others. Since 1973 we have tortured and murdered over 40,000,000 of our children. Let us all rejoice that today we came to recognize that torture is wrong and have committed ourselves to torture no more.
Imagine, no more:
Suction Aspiration: “General or local anesthesia is given to the mother and her cervix is quickly dilated. A suction curette (hollow tube with a knife-edged tip) is inserted into the womb. This instrument is then connected to a vacuum machine by a transparent tube. The vacuum suction, 29 times more powerful than a household vacuum cleaner, tears the fetus and placenta into small pieces which are sucked through the tube into a bottle and discarded.”
Dilation and Curettage (D&C): “This method is similar to the suction method with the added insertion of a hook shaped knife (curette) which cuts the baby into pieces. The pieces are scraped out through the cervix and discarded [Note: This abortion method should not be confused with a therapeutic D&C done for reasons other than pregnancy.]”
Dilation and Evacuation (D&E): “This method is used up to 18 weeks gestation. Instead of the loop-shaped knife used in D&C abortions, a pair of forceps is inserted into the womb to grasp part of the fetus. The teeth of the forceps twist and tear the bones of the unborn child. This process is repeated until the fetus is totally dismembered and removed. Usually the spine must be snapped and the skull crushed in order to remove them.”
Salt Poisoning (Saline Injection): “Used after 16 weeks (four months) when enough fluid has accumulated. A long needle injects a strong salt solution through the mother’s abdomen into the baby’s sac. The baby swallows this fluid and is poisoned by it. It also acts as a corrosive, burning off the outer layer of skin. It normally takes somewhat over an hour for the baby to die from this. Within 24 hours, labor will usually set in and the mother will give birth to a dead or dying baby. (There have been many cases of these babies being born alive. They are usually left unattended to die. However, a few have survived and later been adopted.)”
Prostaglandin Chemical Abortion: This form of abortion uses chemicals developed by the Upjohn Pharmaceutical Co. which cause the uterus to contract intensely, pushing out the developing baby. The contractions are more violent than normal, natural contractions, so the unborn baby is frequently killed by them — some have even been decapitated. Many, however, have also been born alive.
Hysterotomy or Caesarean Section Used mainly in the last three months of pregnancy, the womb is entered by surgery through the wall of the abdomen. The technique is similar to a Caesarean delivery, except that the umbilical cord is usually cut while the baby is still in the womb, thus cutting off his oxygen supply and causing him to suffocate. Sometimes the baby is removed alive and simply left in a corner to die of neglect or exposure.
Partial-Birth Abortion: Five steps to a partial birth abortion:
- Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s legs with forceps.
- The baby’s leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
- The abortionist delivers the baby’s entire body, except for the head.
- The abortionist jams scissors into the baby’s skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull.
- The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.
(Abortion procedure information taken from LifeSiteNews)
In the majority position of the Supreme Court decision (pp.7-8) that upheld the ban on Partial Birth Abortion Justice Kennedy made reference to this description of Partial Birth Abortion by a nurse who participated in the torture:
“Dr. Haskell went in with forceps and grabbed the baby’s legs and pulled them down into the birth canal.Then he delivered the baby’s body and the arms everything but the head. The doctor kept the head right inside the uterus. . . .
The baby’s little fingers were clasping and unclasping, and his little feet were kicking. Then the doctor stuck the scissors in the back of his head, and the baby’s arms jerked out, like a startle reaction, like a flinch, like a baby does when he thinks he is going to fall.
The doctor opened up the scissors, stuck a high-powered suction tube into the opening, and sucked the baby’s brains out. Now the baby went completely limp. . . .
He cut the umbilical cord and delivered the placenta. He threw the baby in a pan, along with the placenta and the instruments he had just used.”
Were you aware that these are the types of things we have been doing to our children for the last 36 years?
I do not rejoice at the thought of anyone being mistreated or harmed but when I watched the President today make his announcement with all the implied disdain for methods used to get information from detainees at Guantanamo Bay I was angered. America is not going to torture? Strapping a man on board and submerging him in water is torture but the above murderous procedures are not?
How righteous and smug the new administration was today, they have corrected our tortuous ways. Be very afraid children, never has such a large collection of infant murder supporters been gathered together and given authority.
Already we see that President Obama is at work in the abortion realm as Fox News reports: “President Obama will issue an executive order on Thursday reversing the Bush administration policy that bans the use of federal dollars by non-governmental organizations that discuss or provide abortions outside of the United States.”
When President Obama was campaigning he made a promise to sign into law the Freedom Of Choice Act (FOCA). You need to make yourself familiar with this repeal of nearly every restriction that we have succeeded in imposing on infant murder.
I refuse to have the false charge of being unpatriotic keep me from revealing the sinful, murderous reality of what is being done by our country. Multitudes today believe that we have purged sin and ascended in righteousness, America no longer tortures we are told. Yes, we do.
