Abortion in the News

This one is a story about Ms Magazine 'releasing its fall issue next week with a cover story titled "We Had Abortions," accompanied by the names of thousands of women nationwide who signed a petition making that declaration.'

The saddest moment os the AP story:

Tyffine Jones, 27, of Jackson, Miss., said she had no hesitation about signing _ although she lives in a state where restrictions on abortion are tough and all but one abortion clinic has been closed.

Jones said she got an abortion 10 years ago _ enduring harassment from protesters when she entered the clinic _ in order to finish high school. She went on to become the first member of her family to graduate from college, and hopes at some point to attend law school.

"I wanted to do something bigger with myself _ I didn't want to be stopped by anything," she said in a telephone interview.


"...they not only do them but give hearty approval to those who practice them."
- Romans 1:32

The second is this story. Money qoute..."Ultrasound images which show 12-week-old foetuses sucking their thumbs and walking in the womb are dangerously misleading, a group of scientists warned today."
The reason for all this talk of abortion is the high Court will be taking up partial birth abortion when it meets in the coming days.

Partial Birth Abortion = killing a baby before it full exits the birth canal.

If that doesn't break your heart, I don't know what will.

Good post. I'm sorry for commenting on JT's that this was a newly renamed blog, confused you with someone else for a minute.

We are no different than the heathens that sacrificed their babies to their "gods", yet our gods are ourselves.

I've got 2 "young uns" too. They are a great blessing. We've got to speak out against this. You've done well.
