Lawmakers consider resolution labeling abortion ‘the ultimate form of child abuse’

Child abuse

“An Alaska state representative added an amendment calling abortion “the ultimate form of child abuse” to a resolution addressing sexual assault and child abuse.

Rep. David Eastman, R-Wasilla, introduced the amendment to a resolution designating April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Associated Press reported that Eastman thinks it’s inappropriate to talk about child abuse without mentioning abortion.

My Comment: Some years ago I submitted to “Advindicate” an article with precisely that title. Here is the Internet link to it:


Christians and Abortion: How Can You Be a “Born Again” Christian if You Won’t Allow Babies to be Born?


“Citing writers like C. S. Lewis (who would definitely take exception), Parker argues that abortion is consistent with Christian love. He even claims that Jesus Himself would have been an abortion supporter.

Parker and other self-proclaimed Christian abortion supporters may claim they’re doing “life’s work.” But what they reach is no good news at all. It’s a gospel of death.



Margaret Sanger: “We Do Not Want Word to Go Out That We Want to Exterminate the Negro Population”


“Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions each year, many on babies from low-income and minority families, and spends millions lobbying to keep abortion on demand legal and readily available.

These discriminatory practices run all the way back to its founder, Margaret Sanger. A well-known eugenicist, Sanger wrote and spoke frequently about how certain groups of human beings were less valuable than others. …”


Walla Walla General Hospital Sold for $14 Million

Walla 2

“In repeating nearly the same path followed by Adventist Health System in Colorado just over 20 years ago, in which three SDA hospitals were given to the Catholic Church, Walla Walla General Hospital (WWGH), a health-care facility wholly owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Walla Walla, Washington, is being sold to the Catholic-owned Providence Health & Services for $14 million dollars payable in installments over 24 years. …

So, this sale is even worse than the process as was done in Colorado when our hospitals were given away to the Catholic church’s Centura Health, with little to show for it except they let us keep the name “Adventist” on the front of the hospitals. …

One thinks back to the entreating words of Ellen White, “You are not to unite with unbelievers in medical work” (Medical Ministry, p. 45). …

My Comment: This article published by Fulcrum 7 generated over 400 comments in a short time. One of those comments suggested that it was God’s way to bring the number of abortions down to zero—Catholics do not offer abortion services to their patients. Another blogger added that if Adventist were to transfer all their hospitals to Catholics, the number of abortion victims would disappear in the medical institutions formerly owned by the Adventist Church.

‘Morality of abortion does not change’: Ben Shapiro destroys case for abortion after rape

““The answer is that [rape] doesn’t actually change the calculus, meaning that obviously, what happened to this person is an awful, awful horrible thing. And as I said earlier, the person who raped her should be tracked down, captured, killed or castrated. So that’s number one,” he said.  …

“But I don’t think that’s what you want. You’re just using the exceptional case in order to try and guilt me into supporting a broad-based abortion platform. These are two separate issues: sympathy for the woman and sympathy for – have a little sympathy for the child. Okay? At any point does sympathy for the child coming here?”…


Irish gov’t vows to shut down pro-life clinic for telling the truth about abortion


“Ireland’s health minister said he is determined to shut down a pro-life crisis pregnancy center run by Human Life International (HLI) after an undercover video sting by The Times of Ireland found pro-life counselors linking abortion to trauma, breast cancer, and long-term regret.

Health minister Simon Harris said the pregnancy center made him “sick to the pit of his stomach.”


President Donald Trump Signs Bill to Overturn Obama Rule Forcing States to Fund Planned Parenthood


““This week the pro-life movement had two huge victories: first, the swearing-in of Justice Gorsuch and now, President Trump will undo former President Obama’s parting gift to the abortion industry. The resolution signed today simply ensures that states are not forced to fund an abortion business with taxpayer dollars. Rather, states have the option to spend Title X money on comprehensive health care clinics that better serve women and girls,” she said. …”


Planned Parenthood Defeats Bill to Allow Women to See Ultrasound of Their Baby Before Abortion


“Colorado Senate Bill 284 would have required abortion facilities to provide women with the option to see an ultrasound image of their unborn baby and have the image described to her. It also required that women receive information about alternatives to abortion and the abortion pill reversal option. In addition, it would have required a 24-hour waiting period between the woman receiving the information and the abortion procedure. Patients could choose not to receive the information. …”


Parody on Stealing, by Doug Yowell. Introduction & Comments by Nic Samojluk


“If you are familiar with our Adventist “Guidelines on Abortion” you will probably realize the irony of trying to justify the violation of one of God’s Commandments on the basis of the freedom God has granted us to disobey his basic rules of decency, integrity and honesty.

In the event you have never read our Adventist Guidelines on Abortion, I would suggest you do so before reading Yowell’s parody on stealing. Here is a link: …”

““I found something on the internet about the president but I didn’t understand it because it was written for adults,” said Gabriela. So, she wrote the following on his Facebook page: “Mr. President Santos, my name is Gabriela Rico and I am eight years old. In my school, I was asked to find out what your accomplishments are as president, but I have not found much on the internet. Can you please help me?” …”


California is actually ok with undercover journalism – as long as it’s focused on animal abuse


“A California animal rights group, Mercy for Animals, shot undercover video of animal abuse at Foster Farms. The video showed chickens being slammed into metal shackles, punched, and having their feathers pulled out. Footage also showed live chickens being thrown onto the ground and chickens being boiled – according to Mercy for Animals, boiled alive.

COK’s tactics are remarkably similar to those employed by Daleiden and Merritt, who posed as fetal body parts sellers at national abortion conferences. Yet it’s only when the target of the undercover investigation is America’s largest abortion chain that California officials seem to have a problem with it. …


Newborn Baby Girl Rescued After She Was Buried Alive by Her Parents Who Wanted a Boy


“This week, the India Times reported another horrifying abuse case where a newborn baby girl allegedly was buried alive by her parents, likely because she was a girl. According to the report, the family already had five older daughters.

Someone rescued the baby girl on Saturday in the Jajpur district of Odisha, India after seeing her feet move above the ground, according to the report. …


Global Warning And Climate Charade


“In 2014, scientists boarded an ice-reinforced ship to sail through the seas of Antarctica to observe the rapid ice and snow melt from global warming/climate change (GWCC).  Rather than cruising through the open water, it became stuck in the ice.[i]  Adding to the irony, two large icebreaking vessels were turned back from rescuing the scientists because of massive ice and snow build up.  Had this voyage succeeded, it would have been heralded as more “indisputable” proof that GWCC is a threat to this planet. Instead, the vessel was stranded in ice and the scientists onboard were rescued by helicopter. …”


Family adopts girl born without limbs: ‘Loving her was what mattered most’


“In a village in the Philippines in 2014, a little girl was born without limbs. At six months old she was placed in an orphanage for children with special needs, where she waited for a family to adopt her.

In October of 2014, when she was nine months old, the Stewart family saw a picture of the little girl and decided to adopt her. It would take months of paperwork and a trip to the Philippines, but a year later, Adrianne and Jason Stewart were bringing little Maria home to join their family of five, including two biological daughters and an adopted son. …”


There is absolutely no scientific debate about when life begins. It begins at conception.


“If we define organismal autonomy to mean freedom from external control, it turns out that we can identify precisely when an embryo satisfies the definition of autonomy: from the very beginning. A recent study published by Marta N. Shahbazi and colleagues from the UK demonstrates that this newly formed cell knows what to do post-conception regardless of whether or not it receives signals from a host uterus. Shahbazi and colleagues demonstrate in their study that a fertilized egg—also known as a zygote, the “product of conception,” the early embryo, or one of many other descriptive terms—is an autonomous living being. This one little cell, with its complete genetic content, can and does begin to divide and to grow, even in an experimental dish in an incubator in the closet space of some unmarked lab. …”


Exclusive: ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Producer On Knowing Desmond Doss, Working With Mel Gibson

Doss 2

““Desmond is a role model, a living example for those that profess a Christian faith and practicing it and living it out in a world that is real to us everyday. And that means that to serve your fellow man in whatever way possible, with an unconditional love, putting everybody else first and yourself second. That’s a lesson for us no matter what time in history we are …

My Comments: If “Desmond is a role model,” how come the church he was a member of deviated from said “living example” when the Adventist organization decided to abandon the pro-life principles established by the early Adventist pioneers?
