If the possibility of suffering is the foundation upon which is built the philosophy of so-called "merciful" abortion and euthanasia, then not one of us is safe from those wielding that bloody sword. Even those wielding it must one day face another wielding it in their direction. Cherry Bieber

February 1997 - Quote from Mother Teresa at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington attended by the President and the First Lady - "What is taking place in America is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?"

KJV Psalm 94:16-23 "Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity? Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. When I said, 'My foot slippeth;' Thy mercy, O Lord, held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me Thy comforts delight my soul. Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with Thee, which frameth mischief by a law? They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood. But the Lord is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. And He shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off."

"We do not stand any taller nor is there any work we do that is any greater than when we stand strong for the unborn child." Alabama State Senator Greg Reed

A Perverted Cell

Years ago I took hospice training.  About three weeks into our training, an oncologist was brought in to teach us about the stages and processes of different types of cancer.  After a bit of teaching he opened the floor for questions and discussion and I asked, "In one word, what would you say a cancer cell is?"  To which he replied, "Well, to put it bluntly, it is a ‘perverted’ cell."  Upon further discussion, the oncologist explained that the body basically turns upon itself as the "perverted" cell doubles, triples, etc., and literally takes over everything in its path.  Hmmmm…the body turns upon itself.  A "perverted" cell takes over and devours the wholesome, healthy cell.  We are told that there are cancerous cells within all of us, but health, habits (i.e., food, tobacco, alcohol, drugs), and exposure to certain chemicals and other toxins; as well as the overall health of the individual, will tell whether or not those “perverted” cells are given the environment conducive to growth and destruction.  I found his answer to be remarkable in its correlation between the spirit and the body.

As the battle continues between those valuing the sanctity of human life and those who do not, I consider the aforementioned “perverted” cell and its correlation to a “perverted” spiritual “cell.”  Consider how much easier it is to destroy a country from within by encouraging the people to develop a hatred for their own country and therefore becoming the country’s own worst enemy.  Self-hatred is a mighty, destructive force…a marked perversion.

Now consider the womb.  The womb is the God-given, God-sanctified, God-blessed haven for the development of human life from conception.  The womb is a sacred place, a safe place.  It is a place entrusted to women alone for the conceiving, nurturing, and protecting of the first months of human life...until the perverted enemy is allowed access.  We are often told that “most” women get through abortions with no consequential mental, emotional, or physical ramifications.  This simply is not true.  Whether or not we see the damage that is done, the damage has occurred.  The woman who claims to have suffered no consequences at all from having an abortion and states that she will have another if necessary, has suffered the worst and most obvious of all the consequences of abortion combined…the hardening of her heart.  A hardened heart is above all the most difficult of wounds from which to recover.  Whether or not the woman realizes it, in the act of murdering her unborn child, she has turned against her own body.

Is it not a perversion when a woman allows the child {male and female} in her womb to be murdered, claiming her right to her own body, denying the child’s right to life, and then denying that it has affected her at all?  Just as the cancer cell that multiplies and destroys the body by wiping out healthy cells, so also multiply the perverted thoughts of mankind that deny the sanctity of human life and murder unabated.
