Enough with the endless abortion euphemisms

Karenwriteshere

I thought “reproductive choice” meant choosing whether or not to conceive, not whether or not to destroy a child already conceived.

I thought “reproductive health” meant fixing faulty reproductive systems and ensuring healthy pregnancies, not puncturing uteruses and the skulls of perfectly healthy unborn babies.

And how I wish “feminism” meant fighting for equal rights, not for special exemptions from fetal homicide laws. (Existing fetal homicidal laws make a man guilty of manslaughter if he kills the baby in a mother’s womb, except in the case of abortion.)

“We hear that abortion is fundamentally about a woman’s right to reproductive freedom. Or abortion is a litmus test for judicial nominees. Or abortion is symptomatic of what’s wrong with the social discourse in America. But none of those things is what abortion really is. Abortion is the intentional killing of unborn children.”

Consecration

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship.” Romans 12:1 (Amplified)

The essential element in consecration is its spontaneity. It is true that God’s claims on us is absolute. He demands, with perfect justice, our yielding ourselves, but He will not force us. It is true that our consecration is the avenue of all that is best in life — the highest possibility of our nature, our greatest happiness and largest usefulness among men, but the real motive of our consecration cannot be based on these. “The mercies of God,” multiplied as they are, but finding a climax in our personal knowledge and appropriation of Christ, who gave Himself for us, is the inspiring motive alone for our presentation of ourselves.

“It does not take great men to do great things; it only takes consecrated men.” Phillips Brooks

The Gospel According To Jesus – Part 17

bible
“Can the wedding guests be sad while the groom is with them? The day will come when the groom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast.
No one patches an old garment with unshrunk cloth, because the patch pulls away from the garment and makes the tear worse. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the skins will burst, the wine spills out, and the skins are ruined. But they put new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved.”
Matthew 9:15-17 (HCSB)
