When did killing babies become normalized within American society? Many would say that it was the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe v. Wade that initiated not just a tidal wave of abortions in the US but also a cultural trend of death as a means of convenience. In fact, the case was never meant to make abortion a common practice; the argument was specifically over a woman’s right to privacy under the 14th Amendment. There was also a question as to what constituted the rights of the states under the 10th Amendment to restrict such procedures.
The Supreme Court’s decision in 1973 was wildly illogical because it ignored debate on the most important and most fundamental question – Does a baby in the womb have human rights and constitutional rights? This question was skirted by the Supreme Court labeling babies within the first trimester as merely the “potentiality of life.” The court danced around the issue by asserting that the constitution does not specifically define what “life” is and when life begins.
The Founding Fathers never saw the need to “define” life and when life begins because at the time it was common sense that an unborn child was still a living human being. They never could have predicted that killing babies in the womb would come up as something our society would demand as common practice. Even though some of the founders were not orthodox Christians, they still held a certain common moral compass that would have made the thought of mass murder of children for reasons of convenience incomprehensible.
This was the stuff of Babylonian barbarism; a monstrous practice in early human history that Christianity sought to erase. Bringing child murder and fetal sacrifice back as a cultural phenomenon was such an outlandish idea that you would have been shunned from society just for arguing in favor of it.
I use the word “convenience” because that is exactly what abortion is – a matter of convenience. With the wide distribution of contraception, including birth control pills and condoms, there is simply no excuse under normal conditions for a woman to get pregnant if she doesn’t want to. Birth control pills are 99% effective, coupled with other means of contraception it is very difficult to become pregnant by accident.
No, most women get pregnant because they CHOOSE not to use these measures, for whatever reason. To understand why abortion is utterly reprehensible as well as unnecessary, we first need to examine some of the usual arguments in favor of the practice and why they fail on a rational level as well as on a moral level.
A Fetus Is Not Human Life?
A human baby develops a brain and a heartbeat at around 6-7 weeks, which is usually around the time that the mother realizes she is pregnant. However, the active signs of life are of no concern to abortionists. They question the very parameters of life, almost from an existential position. The reality they refuse to accept is that there are so many factors to human existence, as well as personality and knowledge that are inherent; meaning inborn.
This is a scientific fact. How much of a person’s “self” is determined upon conception? It’s hard to say, but we know many factors are already present. The question of defining life in support of the Roe v. Wade decision is bizarre. I say this because abortion activists are essentially making the assertion that THEY should decide what life is and when life begins. The Supreme Court backed them in 1973 because they didn’t want to take on the responsibility of defining life; they instead deferred to people who desperately want to end lives as the deciders and definers.
Abortion advocates and certain other groups (most of them on the political left) will say that a human being is a “blank slate” upon birth; a Tabula Rasa that only becomes human through environmental experiences. This is simply false according to science and psychology. Humans are born with inherent ideas of language, mathematics, physics, inherent personality traits and the majority have a sense of empathy and moral compass. Experience helps to hone these traits, but they still exist in the child without the aid of environment.
Because our understanding of life and the beginnings of human consciousness is so limited, and because there is ample evidence of inborn humanity, would it not be best to err on the side of caution and NOT kill children in the womb?
Abortion Is About The “Right To Privacy” Under The 14th Amendment?
First and foremost, if you are committing murder of your child you do not have a right to privacy. It does not matter if that child is still in the womb, the child has rights that are separate from yours. They are not a mere appendage of your body, they have a separate body and life of their own, and therefore should be protected under the law.
Is a baby just a “clump of cells?” One could make the argument that pro-abortion activists are just clumps of cells. Which “life experiences” make them more valuable than an unborn baby?
The original Roe v. Wade decision split the difference between the state of Texas and Jane Roe (a fake name designed to protect the identity of Norma Nelson McCorvey). The Supreme Court claimed that women had a right to medical privacy in terms of abortion, but only until the baby became “viable.” Certain limitations could be applied by the states during the second and third trimester. McCorvey wanted completely unrestricted abortion all the way up to the moment of birth. The court decided that was a bit too much bloodlust.
In other words, the court did decide that abortion falls under 14th Amendment protections, but ONLY when the child is in the first trimester. Thus, the court also technically decided when life begins (in the second trimester), even though they asserted that the constitution does not allow them to do so.
I also find it interesting that the people that demand medical privacy for abortions (leftists) also are the same people that fought viciously against medical privacy when it came to forced vaccinations during the covid pandemic. Apparently, “my body my choice” only applies to killing helpless unborn kids.
With ample evidence that the vaccines are ineffective when compared to natural immunity, there is no proof that unvaxxed people are any threat to the vaccinated. But when it comes to abortion, there is 100% certainty that another human being is going to die because of someone’s “medical privacy rights.”
Roe vs. Wade Being Overturned Means Women Will Now Be Forced To Go To “Back Alley” Clinics?
This is nonsense. Unfortunately, the latest Supreme Court decision does not ban abortion nationwide, it only allows individual states to ban abortion, or those states can put the decision to a public vote through legislation. My home state of Montana has certain preexisting laws which were passed decades ago which still allow abortions to continue for now. Hopefully these laws will be overturned. That said, there are numerous blue states nearby that people will surely travel to if they want an abortion. It is unlikely that these states will ever ban the practice because they are thoroughly controlled by leftists.
Ultimately, Roe v. Wade being overturned will simply lead to more babies being born. Not a flood of injuries from back alley clinics. There is also far less stigma attached to women getting pregnant out of wedlock than 50 years ago. There are no excuses for abortion. None.
Ending Abortion Is A Punishment Against The Poor?
A common refrain of pro-abortion advocates is that an unwanted pregnancy can lead to financial difficulties for those people in poverty. In tandem, they will also argue that you are “punishing the children” by forcing low wage families to bring them into a world of poverty.
This is more nonsense and also a false moral dilemma created from thin air by people who, once again, are only interested in matters of convenience (or those who are population control zealots). Beyond the numerous birth control options, there is also the issue of adoption. There are many resources out there for women who are seeking to give their child up for adoption and plenty of couples that cannot have children of their own. It’s a win-win, and also the child usually wins too.
Beyond that, people with children are much more likely to seek to improve their living standards rather than living comfortably in a financial rut. Specifically, men who become fathers tend to work harder and try to increase their earning potential. Just because a family is in poverty now does not mean they have to be in the future. Killing a child because they MIGHT have to deal with poverty is the kind of insane logic we have come to expect from the political left. Maybe that kid will learn something from that kind of struggle, and maybe he/she would prefer struggle to death?
As a side note, I have heard the argument multiple times from leftists that the best way to deal with inflation in the US is to allow illegal immigrants to invade across the border at will. The theory: More people means more production and more consumption and thus less inflation. This is not how inflation works, of course, but if they really believe more people is the solution to the inflation crisis then they should be cheering for an end to abortion.
Giving Birth In The Hospital Is Costly?
The average cost of giving birth in a hospital is around $13,000. Yes, this is expensive for many families, but it is a cost that is paid over YEARS, and that’s if the family does not have Medicare. This is a non-argument. Monetary cost is irrelevant when a human life is in question.
What About Abortion In Extreme Cases?
This is how leftists try to get their foot in the door on abortion logic; by first illustrating a rare and absolute worst case scenario such as women who are pregnant from rape or incest. They try to create precedence for an uncommon circumstance, and then parley that precedence into abortion for all women all the time.
This kind of situation will have to be left up to the states to decide, but I don’t think the circumstance of the pregnancy should matter. It certainly doesn’t matter to the child. As noted above, leftists commonly claim that anti-abortion regulations punish the child by forcing them into a “world of poverty,” but they are perfectly willing to punish that same child with death because of the crimes of another person.
Abortion Is A Human Right?
No, murder is not a constitutional right or a human right. The moment you are actively seeking the destruction of an innocent human being, for any reason, your personal rights are no longer protected. A child in the womb is about as innocent as it gets. I think that in the future, the monstrous nature of industrialized and franchised child killing in the US under organizations like Planned Parenthood (started by eugenics proponent and racist Margaret Sanger) will be looked back on as a dark age in our history akin to slavery.
Luckily, the Supreme Court finally sees the wisdom in at least removing federal protections for abortion and handing the decision to the states. Perhaps one day all Americans will wake up to the reality that we had it right before Roe v. Wade. We aren’t “taking a step backwards,” we are waking up from a period of evil and madness that never should have been allowed in the first place.

Amen, you stated the case perfectly.
The pro abortion floosies are sex workers who forgot to get sterilized so they wouldn’t need ongoing abortions. IQ’s of 70 or less , these dimwits unable to use logic for family planning. Planned parenthood makes referrals to dr’s who sterilize women, but they make more money doing repeated abortions in their clinics for these “pro’s”. Duh, and we were paying the tab (medicaid). Churches failed to speak out to stop this decades ago, because they are social clubs and don’t want to offend any parishioners.
Baby murder is far worse than some Africans selling other Africans into slavery. And that slavery was REPLACED (not ended) by “wage slavery” once the bankers realized it was cheaper to make their slaves pay their own way than to fully support them.
The people of the future will wonder how INHUMAN the people of America today actually were. I guess it is no wonder the left doesn’t care about a babies life. They don’t care about the lives of adults either.
What future historians will discover is that very few actually agreed with the governments actions, and those of the supporters of tyranny.
What bothers me most about the abortion issue is the motto “my body, my choice” but the same doesn’t apply with regards to Covid vaccines. There the government doesn’t care about your body and choice and they coerce and pressure you into taking those crappy injections.
The other problem I have is that here we have a fight for whether there’s a life that can be killed inside the womb but when it is born then we try and kill it with BS covid vaccines that we know are harmful. Now the FDA has approved injections for infants as old as 6 months.
Yes, killing babies is evil; but, do I have a Christian duty to prevent people from exercising the free choice God gave them by which they will be judged by God in the afterlife? Actually, no I don’t.
The Satanists will reap what they sow in the world; but so shall well-meaning Christians imposing their values on others. What we will get from the reversal of Roe is a larger number of problem children who will plague us to our total destruction.
CATO, you are completely wrong. Of course you have a moral duty to protect the innocent. We have laws against all manner of moral questions, such as murder, which abortion is. Take your moral relativity and ambiguity somewhere else.
Yes, you do. Society cannot function and will self destruct if you allow murderers to murder. The right to judge evil is not only for God.
“………do I have a Christian duty to prevent people from exercising the free choice God gave them by which they will be judged by God in the afterlife?”
ACTUALLY, YES YOU DO! You have a Christian duty to speak up. Otherwise you are merely tolerating sin. What they ultimately do is their own decision. You will be judged if you keep silent. They’re blood will be on your hands.
What we will get from a divided nation once again is a nation going to war against itself.
Exodus 20:13 “You shall not commit murder. (Some Bibles say “kill”) (unjustified, deliberate homicide).
Ezekiel 3:17-21; Ezekiel 33:6-12 -“Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
Perfect response. Can’t believe a Christian had that kind of a response. When you stand idly by, you support whatever that it is your fellow neighbor is doing.
CATO, IF THE VERSES ABOVE DIDN’T GET YA, THIS SURELY WILL…..As believers in our Messiah we are not to judge the “world”. BUT we are to judge other believers as we, ourselves have been judged.. We are not to tolerate sin. Look it up!
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. 9 Open your mouth, judge righteously, and defend the cause of the poor and needy.…
@Brandon, thank God for your principled thinking. I completely agree that the circumstances of the pregnancy don’t matter. Most pro-lifers try to compromise here and say rape or incest can be exceptions…but a life is a life is a life and if we are to say “murder is wrong”, then there is only one principled answer here.
It also doesn’t matter the state of the child – down syndrome, deformed, etc. It’s still a child, and ask anyone alive today with these conditions and they will tell you “Yes I’m glad to be alive”.
I recently had a conversation with my daughter (mostly raised by her mother, unfortunately) who believed that some people shouldn’t live (deformed, mentally retarded, or those who would be born into poverty and difficulty etc.) and others should. And that’s what made abortion ok. I was flabbergasted. The moral relativity and ambiguity they teach in schools these days has created a generation of people who don’t value human life. Obviously she also believed nature is more important than people, and that we have an overpopulation problem anyway. I argued with her gently for hours and finally she came around – she’s a reasonable kid.
The questions we have to ask is:
1. Is it a human in the womb – if we don’t know, then just like you said, we have to err on the side of caution
2. Does anyone have the right to decide who lives and dies? As soon as we say “yes”, then we have to define what those criteria are, and then we have to say who decides. And that’s what makes this wrong.
I’m so happy that you took that strong moral stance. I was marveling about something the other day, related to this. It’s interesting to me to note that on every issue, the conservatives come down on the correct side and the liberals wrong. It’s interesting because it shows that these issues aren’t really debatable – they are moral questions and it shows that there is principled thinking and unprincipled thinking, and the left is unprincipled in every case, and the right is consistently principled in every case. It’s remarkable. We don’t have a divide in this country between ideologies – we have a divide between principled thinkers and unprincipled thinkers.
Rape should be an exception if reported. The Idaho trigger law goes with this premise in less than a month from now. The point here is the life of the mother and PTSD. PTSD in such cases is all too real and destructive, even leading to suicide. Forcing a woman to carry a criminals child to term is in fact criminal. That is a multi decade viewpoint on my part taken from observations. Rare, yes, but it does occur.
I agree – provided, as you stated, that the rape was reported. In a real case of rape, a woman would go to a doctor to monitor her for possible pregnancy to end it as soon as POSSIBLE. It should not be allowed after a couple of weeks.
A rape victim did not choose to get raped, like woman who get pregnant CHOSE to have sex. If a child of rape is aborted (VERY SHORTLY after the crime), that death should be added to the crime and punishment of the rapist.
It’s not consistent. You can’t add the crime of death of the child to the criminal after saying it’s not a baby because of the circumstances of the pregnancy.
If you are saying it IS a baby, just we are willing to kill it because of the circumstances of the pregnancy, then you are still ok with baby killing. You have to be consistent and principled. Killing it no matter the circumstances is immoral.
Capitol punishment is also being willing to kill because of the circumstances. In my opinion that should include violent rape. But let me put this to you another way; I have terminal cancer, I want an heir. I kidnap your daughter and rape her until she is pregnant. I then go to prison where my medical needs are met at taxpayer expense. My offspring is guaranteed to be carried to term. All neat and tidy and OK with you?
The problem is that the left uses EXTREMELY rare circumstances like you describe as a means to set precedent. They specifically used the 14th Amendment and privacy laws in Roe v. Wade for a reason – So that any woman that gets an abortion can then claim extraneous circumstances if they want to, and since it’s a privacy issue no one is allowed to investigate and show they are lying. Also, Capitol Punishment is killing, but it is not murder – There’s a big difference. It’s punishment for people who commit the worst kind of crimes, people who can never again return to society. There’s no comparison between capitol punishment and abortion. A baby is innocent, and the baby is the one being punished for the crimes of another.
It is good to have healthy and polite debate on these very important issues.
The consistency is the choice of the action of sex. Pregnancy is the consequence. If a woman chooses to have sex she must deal with the consequences. If a woman does NOT choose to have sex, but is raped, why must she then deal with the consequence? Indeed, the baby is innocent. So the rapist must take the blame and the punishment for the death of the child. Please bear in mind that it would also be wrong to punish the woman by making her choose between raising a child that will remind her of a horrible injustice for the rest of her life, or, giving up a child that is also her own.
Something to remember is that, as Brandon pointed out, children are born with inherent traits. I do not think anybody could argue that children have traits of parents. A child of rape may specifically choose to be nothing like his/her father, or he/she may exhibit similar tendencies.
Point is, if a woman is forcefully impregnated by rape, she should not be further punished – for the rest of her life. This IS consistent if you differensiate between free choice of ACTION versus the CONSEQUENCES of actions.
A woman who CHOOSES to have sex must deal with the consequences.
A woman who does NOT choose sex, but is forcefully impregnated by a criminal, should NOT be forced to deal with the consequences of ANOTHER person’s choice to commit a criminal action. The criminal is responsible for ALL the consequences of his action.
Where there ARE indeed rare circumstances, such as pegnancy from rape, the law should make specific provision for such circumstances. Specific circumstances cannot be ignored to have a shorter more concise law. Of course, a specific circumstance should NEVER be interpreted to mean “any curcumstance” by a court.
On the question of privacy:
If a woman wants to kill a baby after choosing the action of sex there should be NO privacy.
If a woman was raped there is indeed reason to protect her identity. Should the loss of a woman’s viginity by rape (not by her own choice) be openly published to the world? As a sidenote, it is sad that the days where a young man would dream of marrying a virgin – and staying a virgin until marriage himeself – is mostly forgotten or ridiculed.
Yes, the circumstances can be ignored because they don’t matter in terms of the value of the life of the child. The only circumstance that would ever matter in terms of abortion is if the pregnancy is somehow killing the mother, and even then there are ways to deliver the child early in most cases.
On the topic of difficult cases…
Taking an extreme example to test a principle – what if:
A woman is kidnapped/trafficked to a secret facility and experimented on by being artificially impregnated under anaesthesia by a scientist with DNA altered hybrid semen leading to a pregnancy with a half-insect-half-human (from mother’s side) creature?
She escapes and learns that she is pregnant. Must she be forced to give birth? Is there a moral difference between altered DNA and a human rapist’s DNA on this question?
Is it not more consistent to ask whether the woman CHOSE to undergo the action of impregnation?
Must be reported indeed. Exactly as you say. As in he Idaho law.
So now we add the guilt of murder to the victim of rape? Being a woman myself, I can tell you that choosing to kill your unborn baby will stay with you forever. PTSD indeed! No one is saying the victim has to keep and raise up the child, that would be her choice. Children are given up for adoption every day. THAT would be the option here and that’s far better than murder of an innocent who had NOTHING to do with how they were created!
Davy-The “what ifs” have to stop. That is what the entire left does constantly to justify their evils.
Why? What did the child do?
Life is hard and we all get beat down sometimes, and a woman being raped is a terrible crime, but why add to the crime by then murdering the innocent life that came from it?
Murder is murder. The child never has a say in the matter. And sin is sin and you can’t call it by any other name. Those who condone murder, participate in that murder simply by their agreement. Sadly, most who have that belief will ultimately end up in a very hot, fiery furnace.
If one agrees to purposefully murder an innocent being…what a shame on our society, no matter how that child was conceived. And America, and those who condone will be judged accordingly. A Holy God will not be mocked.
Qmain. So the assulted now pregnant mother is going to abort because of an assault and she lives. But it is okay for her to assault an innocent life to death? Naw bro. No way. Sincerely. Just think about it.
Where the left’s insanity really shows is when they argue for “compassionate killing” of a child who would be deformed in some way, or would be born into a hard life (poverty or suffering of some sort).
Ok then, should we sterilize everyone Africa, Asia, and South America and abort all pregnancies right now? They would of course say no, but not realize that it is inconsistent with their advocacy for preventing children from having hard lives.
There’s no healing this divide, I’m afraid. There will be a geographic separation and we will have to live apart from one another.
“There’s no healing this divide, I’m afraid. There will be a geographic speration and we will HAVE to live apart from one another.”
Yes, given the basic and fundamental unbridgeable ideological divides which are so very plain about us for all to see, there is simply no further expectation that any coexistence under a single governance is any longer possible…clearly.
As such, then would it not be better to initiate the process of Separation forthwith…without delay? Inasmuch as continued coexistence is proving so harmful for all concerned should we not immediately begin resolutely begin petitioning our respective Legislatures to first draft and then – without delay – vote upon General Articles of Secession? Surely the longer this state of affairs persist the more damage will be done to all concerned.
If not, then surely the ROT which has so thoroughly infected the Blue States will continue to filter into our camp. Worse, the impending mega-disaster shaping up in the American southwest and west should serve as existential impulse to do so else we’ll soon be seeing the influx of 60 MILLION ‘Americans’ into our enclaves as the Western Aquifers finally all reach “Dead Pool” levels.
Cut the cancer off NOW or Hell will follow, IMHO.
Food for thought, JOG
Boy that impending disaster you speak of is not being spoken of in the main stream media much at all. That should be a HUGE concern to this country as a whole. Indeed, between Phoenix and LA, there are a whole lot of people about to be displaced.
Such a megadisaster looming on a very near horizon.

Thanks, Brandon, for taking this firm, reasonable, and loving stance. I respect you for publicly sharing the truth, especially when it comes to protecting vulnerable human beings such as unborn children.
An absurd argument that I’ve been seeing from abortion advocates is that if the pro-life position was truly about babies and children then we would be staunch supporters of universal healthcare, including free prenatal care, months of free maternity leave, free childcare supplies, free education, free daycare, free this, free that. They seem oblivious to the fact that a lot of this is either already subsidized by the taxpayer or is provided for by private entities like crisis pregnancy centers and charities.
I also find it hilarious how they seem to think they’re somehow sticking it to pro-lifers by going on sex strikes or having vasectomies. Apparently they never heard us talk about abstinence. That or they’re truly too stupid to realize they’re doing what we’ve been arguing for for years.
The women that are calling for a sex strike because they want the option to kill babies are usually the type of women most of us would never want to have sex with anyway – Ugly, obnoxious and disgustingly promiscuous. Please ladies, by all means, keep it in your pants for once in your lives.
I would say Brandon makes a very strong case here.
Although he is being polite and professional, I wouldn’t exactly use the term “ladies”
Yikes. That’s like a leather wallet with pink hair growing out of it.
What always strikes me is that the women who are screaming about their “rights”, are the same women who will never get within 10 feet of a man!
Learned that years ago when I VERY briefly worked in a community health clinic. The women there were all Lesbians, and all of them were very vocal when it came to abortion.
Yes, I have been noticing an overt number of gay people screaming like toddlers over the recent Supreme Court decision, even though they will likely never have natural born children of their own. They always argue that men are in no position to comment on abortion (which is untrue), but they TRULY are in no position because they have no capacity to have children accidentally or otherwise with their gay partners. The only case where this might happen is if you have a woman that claims she’s a “trans man” and a man that claims he’s a “trans woman,” and from the few cases I have seen of this so far, they tend to WANT a child as a prop for their politicized relationship.
This is what I have said all along. So why are they attacking Christians or ‘the right’. This is a human values issue that applies to everyone.
Sadly, all those who call fetuses babies are all talk and no action. Million of real babies, you know the ones that can live outside their mothers womb without being on life support, die of both diseases and malnutrition while you folks talk about killing fetuses the size of a pea or walnut. Sorry, but apathy and lack of action are no excuse. Don’t get me wrong, I not in favor of abortion, but I’m not hypocritical either and I’m surely not going to teach my children, a three week old fetus is a baby. Shame on you all for not having the empathy of those mothers who surly have made a grave mistake, but will likely not be able to adequately care for a child. Perhaps this is a decision God should make and the government and others should keep their noses out of other peoples businesses.
Your argument was already addressed in the article above, you clearly did not read it – The medical aid argument is a non-argument. Medicare already exists. Charities already exist. Also, if a mother cannot afford to take care of a child then she should give the child up for adoption, which there are numerous resources for, or she never should have had sex without protection. If the child dies it’s her fault, not the fault of “society” or capitalism, as ridiculous leftists like to claim. Also, the murder of children is everyone’s business.
Exactly! Everyone knows how babies are made. Let’s quit playing stupid. If you are gonna have sex then see to it that protection is used or DON’T DO IT!
Good grief-it ain’t rocket science!
Shame on all of us for not having empathy with the mother, who CHOSE to have sex? How about shame on you for destroying life.
You believe in God? Very interesting. How about you read what He says. Do not commit adultery, i.e. do not shag outside of Biblical marriage. And, do not kill – which includes destroying God-given life because of YOUR (or your daughter’s) “grave mistake”. God does not make “grave mistakes” by blessing a woman with a pregnancy, does He?
God’s nose – and our noses – are, and should be, right there in protecting innocent life.
If we use your line of reasoning, we should then begin exterminating the sick, the elderly and the disabled in order to prevent them from a life of suffering and disease?
Unfortunately, that was already tried in Hitler’s T-4 program.
The argument then was that it was the ultimate compassion to “mercifully” kill these disabled and sick folks, rather then see them consigned to a life of pain, disability, and possibly poverty.
H. Skip Robinson –
Human life begins at conception! The baby’s heart beat starts at about the 5th week. I urge you to be very sure, when you tell your children about childbirth, that you have ALL your facts correct about child development at the various stages of pregnancy. There are many excellent sources to find such information. Crisis Pregnancy Centers that are in most cities is a great place to start for information. Most are church sponsored.
Your compassion for women who have had abortions is sincerely applauded. Abortion might affect a woman in three dimensions: physically, emotionally and spiritually. Most, at first, go through denial and ultimately, years later, suffer the grief.
There is healing and hope for a hurting and suffering heart. To forgive the man and anyone who encouraged her to abort, especially to forgive herself, to deal with her anger, and to come to repentance. Some Crisis Pregnancy Centers may have trained Post Abortion Grief Counselors to come alongside the hurting woman and/or man with kindness, love and care to aid in seeing them through the grief and back to wholeness. She does not have to suffer alone.
In many cities there are church sponsored Crisis Pregnancy Centers that offer lots of information free of charge…..where you might start when you are ready to tell your children. These Crisis Pregnancy Centers give free pregnancy tests, education on birth and also abortions – although they do not do abortions. Free baby clothing, formula, even group housing for any girl whose parents cannot accept what has happened and there are wonderful homes where pregnant girls can stay until the birth of their child. They are lovingly guided in their decision to either keeping the baby or giving it for adoption.
After the abortion many women turn to drugs and/or alcohol, multiple sex partners and multiple pregnancies which equal multiple abortions. The full realization of what happened can come back years later as the hard guilt begins and gives way to deep sorrow and grief. The unborn child is never forgotten. Men are affected by abortion also. That would have been their child, too.
Abortion might affect a woman in three dimensions: physically, emotionally and spiritually.
“This is what the LORD says: “A voice is heard in Ramah, Lamenting and bitter weeping. Rachel is weeping for her children; She refuses to be comforted for her children, Because they are no more.”Jeremiah 31:15
“Human development begins after the union of male and female gametes or germ cells during a process known as fertilization (conception).
“Fertilization is a sequence of events that begins with the contact of a sperm (spermatozoon) with a secondary oocyte (ovum) and ends with the fusion of their pronuclei (the haploid nuclei of the sperm and ovum) and the mingling of their chromosomes to form a new cell. This fertilized ovum, known as a zygote, is a large diploid cell that is the beginning, or primordium, of a human being.” [Moore, Keith L. Essentials of Human Embryology. Toronto: B.C. Decker Inc, 1988, p.2]
“The development of a human being begins with fertilization, a process by which two highly specialized cells, the spermatozoon from the male and the oocyte from the female, unite to give rise to a new organism, the zygote.” [Langman, Jan. Medical Embryology. 3rd edition. Baltimore: Williams and Wilkins, 1975, p. 3]
Backatcha Skipy. You don’t need to be wagging your finger at anyone! 🤨 So at three weeks you were’t considered human? Sounds bout right. 🤭 Sincerely.
He has already MADE THAT DECISION! “Do not murder.” And He has lots to say, study His Word….forget about “church” with its many false teachings……study His Truth! Forgive others involved, repent and forgive yourself. Unforgiveness is a very hard road to travel.
Brilliant article Brandon and brilliant comments above (except for Cato, of course)!
Also, concerning, “my body my choice”…
“With ample evidence that the vaccines are ineffective when compared to natural immunity, there is no proof that unvaxxed people are any threat to the vaccinated. But when it comes to abortion, there is 100% certainty that another human being is going to die because of someone’s “medical privacy rights.””
Exactly! I’ve used the same logic as an attorney in several wrongful termination cases where the employee was simply terminated for his/her refusal to vaccinate.
Also, as many can hopefully see, the globalists’ agenda is very quickly falling apart at the seems…they lost the gun grab in NY, they lost Roe v. Wade, and they lost when the USSC just recently ruled that the EPA doesn’t have the right to regulate carbon emissions. I guess they thought they had all these Justices in their back pocket, but they were hopefully dead wrong. Other than just straight up shooting us down, how do they now continue with their ESG / carbon reduction plan?
Anyway, I know it may seem like wishful thinking now, but I can’t wait for the day when these globalists are hopefully taken to another Nuremburg trial for what they’ve done, and hang in public for all to see.
I agree Gauntlet, I find it hypocritical that woke people will shame on you for not following the plandemic agenda, but as soon as one brings abortion to the table, they somehow want to have the option of killing innocent babies -_-
Speaking of the globalist agenda falling apart, look at this article about the woke military issue brandon talked about a year ago.
Thank you Brandon for quite a few brilliant points I did not think about.
We have the freedom to choose our ACTIONS, not the CONSEQUENCES of our actions.
Regarding pregnancy, the “freedom to choose” is the freedom to choose whether to have sex inside Biblical marriage, or before/outside of Biblical marriage. THAT is the freedom to choose. Getting pregnant is the CONSEQUENCE of choosing to have sex.
NOBODY has the freedom to choose to abort the CONSEQUENCES of their actions. ANY actions – especially if it implies the murder of someone else.
As for jabs – taking a jab is an ACTION. We have the freedom to choose to perform that ACTION or not. If someone chooses the action of jabbing, they are of course NOT FREE to choose the CONSEQUENCES.
Good points. The jabs are likely like playing “Russian Roulette” as the consequences will not be know perhaps for many years and will vary widely depending on the particular “batch” you were given — i.e., some will get cancer, some a form of “AIDS”, others heart issues, etc. That randomness was intended to make it more difficult for people to link back their particular issue to the vax.
My question to those who believe in baby slaughter/murder is this. The Bible states that our creators said I knew you before you were born. I knew you in the womb. How can they say that life doesn’t exist until a certain time. Death cannot bring life into existence. If the egg is dead no life. If the sperm is dead no life. But both being alive bring into existence life when they combine. So here we have proof that life has already happened. We as a nation are suffering the penalties of this decision and many more. The blows on this land will continue as long as we allow perverse, satanic abominations to be in this land.
Religious arguments don’t hold any weight for abortion advocates because they are based in belief; that’s why I made scientific and logic based arguments. At least when they dismiss my arguments it proves they don’t care about science or logic either. They only care about convenience and being free from consequences.
I whole-heartedly agree when dealing with Leftists. Moreover, one does not have the “right” to take the life of an unborn child. Let’s take the Religious Right out of the equation for now and look at a high profile legal case. The murder trial of Scott & Laci Peterson. Scott is serving a life sentence in California for 2 counts of murder. Murder in the 1st degree for the death of his wife Laci and murder in the 2nd degree for the death of their unborn son Connor.
Isn’t it so very interesting that although both Abraham and Sarah were old and their seed was dead due to their age, Abraham nearly 100, that they conceived Isaac and honored God’s promise to Abraham.
Yet so many people even….or especially…..people who say they are “christian’s” have no idea what the Bible ACTUALLY SAYS!!! A holy God honors and loves HIS CHILDREN – His true sons and daughters even though they are few. Revelation chapters 2 and 3.
Hebrews 11:11,12 …”11 By faith Sarah, even though she was barren and beyond the proper age, was enabled to conceive a child, because she considered Him faithful who had promised. 12 And so from one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.”
Besides not being able to avoid the consequences of their lifestyles I think another reason for the rage of the pro-abortion crowd, more important even than their continued lifestyle of promiscuity, is the loss of political power at the federal level. For decades they’ve weaponized the Supreme Court and activist judges as a weapon against their political opposition, with Roe being a major part of their arsenal. With Roe overturned they can no longer impose their infanticidal policies on red states through judicial fiat. They now have to actually put that issue up for a vote at the state level and I believe they know they have no sway anywhere outside of an ultra-blue state, and even those areas are starting to get tired of them and their failed policies.
Worst of all are the beta-cuck males that argue for abortion. These are a disgrace.
I’m old enough to remember when abortion was being discussed (pre 1973).
The argument made by feminists then was that abortion would NEVER become just another method of birth control, that it was to be used ONLY in cases of incest and rape, and to preserve the life of the mother.
As “President” Biden said more than 20 years ago, “abortion is always a tragedy.”
Fast forward 50 years, and the overwhelming majority of abortions (over 99%) are indeed abortions of convenience due to a lack of accountability and responsibility.
The same argument was made for euthanasia, i.e. only to be used when death from terminal illness would occur within 6 months.
Now we have states that allow euthanasia for depression, mental illness, and “quality of life” issues.
It is ALWAYS a slippery slope.
It’s interesting to note that the same people who are calling for unrestricted access to abortion, are the same people who demonstrate outside of prisons demanding that the murderer who is to be executed, be granted clemency.
Good points. I hadn’t known that.
I would add that a fetus is not really part of a woman’s body. It is a genetically distinct human being. Therefore, it is not “my body, my choice” any more than a suckling infant is the mother’s body…and her choice.
absolutely correct. “my body my choice” has always been a lie. if they really want “my body my choice” choose not to get pregnant.
Brandon & Crew……don’t know if you listen to Jacob Dreizin but he’s become popular over his analysis of Russia/Ukraine. Haven’t watched him a lot but I do NOT believe he has ever dipped into matters other than military. This video is about Covid and the “Safe & Effective.” It hit me across the cheek pretty hard. This guy sounds a lot like me. I’m ok with being wrong. In fact, I am praying for it. Unfortunately all of these civilization game changers seem to be hovering above and we can’t dodge all of them.
Here’s a great view of the totalities of what we have been up against. Abortion is just another item to be exploited by our leaders. Tucker Carlson explains it well. This video is an excellent overall 40k view of our situation.
I was an adopted baby. I was a child of the free love 60s pre Roe and when birth control was in its infancy. I was given up for adoption by a woman who lived at a home for unwed mothers to be in Florida, but who knew a) life was better than the alternative, and b) she knew she did not have the tools and resources to raise me herself. I was given up to Catholic Charities who matched me up with a couple in Michigan who became my mom and dad. Dad was an executive at Whirlpool and in those days got by on one salary and allowed mom to raise me (and my adopted sister) full time.
When I was two, I developed uncontrolled asthma. At the time, there were no preventative medicines for it as there are today, and as such, my early and mid childhood was full of needles, pediatrician visits, frequent 2am trips to the emergency room and we’ll over a dozen hospitalizations.
Mom and dad were also very open on adopting us, and encouraged us to seek out our adopted parents. So when I turned 18, I looked up my birth parents. Turned out my birth mom wanted to find me just as much, so we connected in about ten minutes. Again, I was born as a free love child of the 60s, so my birth mom could never tell me with absolute certainty who my birth dad was. We think we know, but I made peace with it decades ago, and am fine not meeting him. She told me that there was no way on Gods green earth that she would have been able to raise me and I would have been a mess. She was absolutely correct. I am a CPA with my own firm in Florida with three college degrees and multiple licenses and professional certifications. I do NOT have various baby mamas, a rap sheet, child support payments, or any addictions. This was because my birth mom had the wisdom to not abort me and put me up for adoption.
My real parents died years ago, but I still talk almost weekly with my birth mom and visit her at least twice a year (she is in Washington State). She is my mentor and close friend, and was the one who turned me onto this very blog. She is a HUGE fan of Brandon’s and lets me know when a new post drops. She continues to give me wonderful advice.
I’ve told her that while it’s true she does not replace my real parents, that doesn’t stop her from continuing to raise me at 56 by advising on making good choices. She made the right choice 56 years ago to keep me around and put me up for adoption, and I love and thank her very much for that decision every day.
Very touching story. I’m very glad for you that you keep in touch with your birth mom and that you’re living a healthy life. And I’m sure your mom is really proud of you.
Thanks for sharing a bit of your story Keith. Your birth mom is a wise woman and you seem to be a wise man.
Such an oasis in the wilderness of evil these days 🙂
It’s my understanding that most Constitutional lawyers consider that life begins at birth, and not conception. If true, then shouldn’t an amendment to the Constitution be pursued by the pro-life supporters?
No serious Constitutional lawyer will make that claim because, as noted in the article, the Constitution does not define when life begins. The Founding Fathers never could have conceived that half of Americans could be conned one day into believing it is acceptable to kill a child in the womb. An amendment might be helpful, but for now the states are deciding the definition of life on their own, which is a big step in the right direction.

As you predicted, Brandon, so we need more baby’s 🙂
The abortion issue is simple. It authorizes a state CPA to claim any miscarriage is murder and to authorize access to any residence without warrant. A citizen’s Right to control their life will be usurped by tyrantical government.
That’s a lie. No state in the Union considers a miscarriage to be “abortion.” You just aren’t allowed to deliberately murder your child in the womb anymore and if you do it will be investigated like any other murder. Sorry, but if you take an innocent life you open yourself to the loss of your constitutional rights, and you will deserve it. And let’s not pretend as if leftists worry at all about “tyrannical government” – They LOVE tyrannical government; they just want to be able to do whatever THEY want, including killing kids, while oppressing everyone else.
