I just read an article angels4u posted about the history of infanticide. I wanted to follow that with a newspaper article about the recent atrocity regarding abortion in the US.
I have been deeply disturbed ever since this wicked law passed. I think this article brings a personal angle to it.

Last week, the New York Legislature passed a barbaric and sweeping bill legalizing abortion up to the moment of birth.
After passing this bill, legislators gave themselves a standing ovation.
Our youngest was born prematurely at 26 weeks gestation (six months). Our child was intubated for 48 hours, on a C-Pap for 12 hours, and then on a nasal canula until just prior to release from the NICU 2½ months later.
Some of the parents at the NICU were newcomers to the U.S., in punjabs, burkas, turbans and full tribal dress. Many did not have a language in common, but we had in common the fight for our babies’ lives.
This profound bond cut across all religious, cultural, national, ethnic and racial lines and went deep into our very souls. Not all of these babies survived.
The grief and heartache of the loss of one of these was real.
It is an odious insult to compare this loss of a baby to the loss of just a piece of the mom’s body tissue, like a haircut or a nail trim.
Today our child is in the gifted program at school, a talented artist and creator of several cartoon series, a trumpet player for band and marching band, studies Mandarin Chinese, has a quirky and hilarious sense of humor, a talent for working with children and above all, is a loving and compassionate human being.
If I had aborted this child (according to law, my husband would have had no say in the matter) at six months, the New York Legislature would have given a standing ovation.
Yet, if one did that to an unborn puppy, they would face animal cruelty charges.
Twenty-first century science and neonatal medicine have made incredible advances, with premature babies viable as early as 20 weeks.
The National Institute of Health has developed imaging technology to track the brain activity of pre-born infants.
The unborn child has a heartbeat at day 21, brainwaves register on an EEG at day 40, at eight weeks all organs function, at nine weeks individual fingerprints appear and at 10 weeks the baby feels pain.
All of these are the hallmarks of an individual human being.
For 50-100 years, drunk drivers have been convicted of wrongful death, on two counts, when they kill a pregnant woman and her pre-born baby.
Insurance companies have given payouts for the same.
Killers have been convicted of two counts of murder in the murder of pregnant women.
In both criminal and civil cases, our courts have recognized the personhood of pre-born children for decades.
This New York law throws all of these legal precedents under the bus.
The New Mexico Legislature is considering passage of a similar bill.
It is time for our legislature and U.S. Congress to abandon the medieval torture chambers of abortion, and join 21st century science, neonatal medicine and criminal and civil court precedents to recognize the personhood of unborn babies and their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness… Something worthy of a standing ovation!
" Heidi Crowter, a 23-year-old woman from Coventry, has been voicing her experience of life with Down’s syndrome and speaking out against disability screening.
Heidi said that parents “are being told lies” about Down’s syndrome and she hopes that her example of life and faith will challenge the misconceptions.
She is actively involved with Don’t Screen Us Out, a campaign group highlighting that Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) is likely to result in a large number of abortions in the UK..."
If anyone finds this who is considering an abortion please listen to this song and rethink it. I will print the words for you. It is written from the standpoint of an unborn baby who (very rare) survived the brutal attempts to snuff out its life. Giving your baby up for adoption is always an alternative. I say this out of concern for both your baby and you. Remember, you will have to live with this decision for the rest of your life.
This song is an ode to the unborn babies that don't deserve to become 'silent screams.'
Someone described this song as a prophetic voice from the grave of millions of murdered babies.
In my time on this earth I've talked to "Christian" active homosexuals. "Christians" who say they can take the Mark because God really knows their hearts. "Christians" who openly cheat on their wives and family while still maintaining leadership roles in their church. And "Christians" who said that they could never love the God of the old testament because he was cruel, but they worship Christ because he was non-judging and is love. But this is a new one for me:
