    (continued) “Shouldn’t we give the benefit of the doubt to life?... “Whatever prevents implantation kills a unique human being as surely as any later abortion procedure…. “Many well-meaning physicians, including Christian OB/GYNs and family physicians, simply are not aware of this evidence….Even when the information about the Pill rises to the surface here and there, so many Christians – including pastors and parachurch leaders – have used and recommended the Pill, that we have a natural resistance to raising the issue or looking into it seriously when others raise it.” "Why Pro-Life?" Randy Alcorn, 2012, 86-91, Hendrickson Publishers: Peabody, MA, ISBN 978-1-61970-028-4

    “According multiple references throughout the Physicians’ Desk Reference, which articulate the research findings of all the birth control pill manufacturers, there are not one but three mechanisms of birth control pills: (1) inhibiting ovulation (the primary mechanism), (2) thickening the cervical mucus, thereby making it more difficult for sperm to travel to the egg, and (3) thinning and shriveling the lining of the uterus to the point that it is unable or less able to facilitate the implantation of the newly fertilized egg. The first two mechanisms are contraceptive. The third is abortive. “When the woman taking the Pill discovers she is pregnant…it means that all three of these mechanisms have failed. The third mechanism sometimes fails in its role as backup, just as the first and second mechanisms sometimes fail. However, each and every time the third mechanism succeeds, it causes an [chemically induced] abortion…. “The moral question, then, is this: since we are uncertain about how many abortions it causes, how should we act in light of our uncertainty? “Shouldn’t we give the benefit of the doubt to life?...

    “Prior to 1976, a 'contraceptive' was understood to be an agent that prevented the union of sperm and ovum. In 1976 the American College of Obstetricians (ACOG), realizing that this definition didn’t help its political agenda, arbitrarily changed the definition. “A contraceptive now meant anything that prevented implantation of the blastocyst, which occurs six or seven days after fertilization. Conception, as defined by Dorland’s Illustrated Medical Dictionary (27th Edition), became ‘the onset of pregnancy marked by implantation of the blastocyst.’ “The hidden agenda in ACOG’s redefinition of 'contraceptive' was to blur the distinction between agents preventing fertilization and those preventing implantation of the week-old embryo. Specifically, abortifacients such a IUCs, combination pills, minipills, progestin-only pills, injectables such a Provera and, more recently, implantables such a Norplant, all are contraceptives by this definition.” Physician magazine, Nov-Dec 1992, 14-15, Eugene F. Diamond, “Word Wars: Games People Play about the Beginning of Life”

    What joy and comfort to know that these most vulnerable human babies will be resurrected to physical life and have each its own blessed opportunity to inherit eternal life as children of Almighty God.

    If we won’t stand for the inoccent and most vulnerable, what will we stand for, and what kind of nation have be become? Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness... without the life part we will watch the other two fall as well. It’s time to rise up and rebuke the evil we’re facing while we still have the ability to do it. What would the Jewish people have done had they known the concentration camps and ovens were at the end of those tracks? They would have risen up and fought for their lives. We’ve witnessed over 60 million child sacrifices in the name of corrupt laws and a satanic system. How much more before we wake up? Do we wait until our parents and grand parents are deemed “a burden on society” along with our infants? Pray, fast and be prepared... we must speak out now!

    Regarding abortion... the muse ring of the most vulnerable and innocent... Luke 23:28-31 KJV [28] But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. [29] For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. [30] Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. [31] For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry? And here’s another powerful statement by Jesus. Luke 17:1-2 KJV [1] Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him , through whom they come! [2] It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
