Stunning fetal surgery images offer amazing glimpse of baby in the womb

Posted in Fetal Development with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 28, 2017 by saynsumthn

Fetal surgery is becoming more and more common, saving lives and improving the conditions of preborn children. Like many other medical advances, open fetal surgery (as displayed in the images below) offers an amazing look at the developing person inside the womb.

Images and videos below are of surgical procedures and may be disturbing for some viewers.

It is amazing the extent to which members of the medical profession will go to save preborn children growing inside their mother’s wombs. Tragically, there is an inhuman side of “medicine” as well, which believes that ending the lives of other preborn child in an abortion is the better solution.

We long for the day when abortion in unthinkable. Until then, these tiny persons in the womb testify of their humanity.

GOP tax plan recognizes baby in the womb as a human being

Posted in Republican with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 20, 2017 by saynsumthn

| (From Live Action News)

The co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus has labeled a 529 college savings plan for an “unborn child” in the GOP tax plan a “back-door attempt to establish personhood from the moment of conception.” Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) criticized the wording in a November 2 press release, issued shortly after the plan was released by the House. The move follows a change by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to define human life as ‘beginning at conception.’

According to Politico, the GOP tax bill “would allow expectant parents to start putting away money for college and private school tuition, wading into the battle over when human life begins.”

The proposal defines the ‘child in utero’ as, “a member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development” and reads:

UNBORN CHILDREN ALLOWED AS ACCOUNT BENEFICIARIES.—Section 529(e) is amended by adding at the end the following new paragraph:
‘‘(6) TREATMENT OF UNBORN CHILDREN.—
‘‘(A) IN GENERAL.—Nothing shall prevent an unborn child from being treated as a designated beneficiary or an individual under this section.
‘‘(B) UNBORN CHILD.—For purposes of this paragraph—
‘‘(i) IN GENERAL.—The term ‘unborn child’ means a child in utero.
‘‘(ii) CHILD IN UTERO.—The term ‘child in utero’ means a member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb.’’

NBC pointed out that the bill’s terminology “mirrors a section of the 2004 Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which was enacted after the murder of Laci Peterson, who was pregnant.”

In response to the news, Paul McLeod, BuzzFeed reporter for Capitol Hill, tweeted, “I’m reading this as anti-abortion wedge. If an unborn child can be a beneficiary, that makes them a legal person, so how can they be killed?”

Paul McLeod Tweet on GOP Tax Bill Tweet

Following release of the bill, abortion advocates went ballistic.

Their fear is that if it can be established that the preborn child in the womb is a person, it could lead to overturning the infamous Roe v. Wade decision, which forced abortion on the nation.

NARAL on GOP Tax Bill Tweet

“On its own, I find it a despicable play to lay the groundwork for “personhood” bills and ending abortion rights,” Calla Hales, manager of A Preferred Woman abortion clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina told Bustle.

“Naturally, you’d expect me to say that as an abortion provider. As a tax paying citizen, I’ll frame it this way: Frankly, it’s fraud. A potential life cannot have assets. It cannot work, earn money, or open a bank account (or have one opened for it). … I find it logically impossible and incredibly unethical to fiscally account for a fetus,” Hales added.

Planned Parenthood, which gets over half a billion dollars a year from taxpayers, expressed its opposition to the move as well, telling CNN that defining a preborn child in the tax code would end up restricting access to abortion.

“It is absurd that House Republican leaders would use a tax bill to try to advance their agenda to undermine access to safe, legal abortion,” Dana Singiser, Vice President for Public Policy and Government Affairs at Planned Parenthood Action Fund told CNN.

Planned Parenthood, whose CEO was hired for her political organizing skills (not her health care experience, because she had none), has a record of Medicaid fraud, covering for child sexual predators, selling aborted baby parts, and chose Halloween to tweet an outrageous and eugenics-style message to the Black community that abortion is safer for women of color than childbirth. (Incidentally, Planned Parenthood’s founder was a known eugenicist who once gave a speech before the Ku Klux Klan.)

 

“Even in the tax reform debate, Republicans could not resist including offensive provisions to appease an extremist minority, ” Rep. DeGette wrote, “The tax code is no place to define what constitutes an ‘unborn child.’ What’s next, giving a Social Security number to a zygote?”

But Mallory Quigley, communications director for the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, disagreed, telling NBC News that the measure is “a small increment in the momentum that we’re building to ensure that one day every child is welcomed and protected under the law. We hope that it stays in the House bill and that it stays in anything the Senate puts out.”

Donald Trump: I Don’t support Planned Parenthood it’s like an abortion factory! Says defund as long as they perform abortions

Posted in 2016 Presidential Race, Donald Trump with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2015 by saynsumthn

After previously attempting to detail the confusing abortion position of Donald Trump I have put together some more recent statements he has made about Planned Parenthood.

Bill O’Reilly asked 2016 presidential GOP hopeful Donald Trump about support of Planned Parenthood, after he said that All Lives Matter in response to the Black Lives Matter campaign.

“The fact is All Lives Matter that includes Black and it includes White and includes everyone else,” Trump said.

O’Reilly then asked “If All Lives Matter then – why do you support Planned Parenthood?”

Trump OReilly Planned Parenthood

Donald Trump replied:

    “I’m not supporting Planned Parenthood…I’m against Planned Parenthood…totally against. I’m against it…..A lot of people say its an abortion clinic I’m opposed to that. I wouldn’t do any funding as long as they’re doing abortions and they are performing abortions so I would be totally opposed to funding.”

The Donald told O’Reilly: “You have bad researchers”

It set off a storm of tweets because several people thought Trump had shown support of Planned Parenthood:

Trump on Planned Parenthood

Donald Trump said previously on CNN’s “New Day” that he would “look at the good aspects” of Planned Parenthood before defunding.

Trump did stick to his position that the “abortion aspect of Planned Parenthood should not — absolutely should not — be funded.”

    “The biggest problem I have with Planned Parenthood is the abortion situation. I mean it’s like an abortion factory frankly and you can’t have it! And You just shouldn’t be funding it. It should not be funded by the government. Because really if you look at it and look at the work they do it really has become so heavily centered at abortion and you can’t have that.”

Trump abortion prolife exceptions

Given the 3% abortion lie, Trump responded:

    “What I’d do if the time came I would look at the individual things that they do and maybe some of the things are good and maybe – I know a lot of the things are bad but certainly the abortion aspect of it should not be funded by government. Absolutely.”

    I would look at the good aspects of it and I would also look because I’m sure they do some things properly and good, good for women, and I would look at that,” Trump said.

    “The abortion aspect of Planned Parenthood should not be funded.”

Asked when he believes the unborn becomes a person, Trump replied:

    “Well I certainly think as the process goes along more and more and a lot of people are talking about the 20 weeks, certainly there but absolutely as the process goes along but I am a person that feels very very strongly about – you know I’m pro-life but I also feel you go with the exceptions.”

Begin 5:00

Trump on Dana Loesch (jump to 3:00)

    “Absolutely they [Planned Parenthood] should be defunded…the answer is in my opinion they should absolutely be defunded…In the case of PP anybody who watched these videos…its very sad to watch it…I thought it was a disgrace.”

Trump on Hannity: (jump to 16:50)

    “They do good things…So look, let’s say there’s Two Planned Parenthood’s in a way, you have it as an abortion clinic now that actually is a very small part if what they do but its a brutal part and I’m totally against it and I wouldn’t do that. They also however service women…We have to help women, a lot of women are helped, so we have to look at the positives also about Planned Parenthood.

    “Maybe unless they stop with the abortions we don’t do the funding for the stuff that we want. There are many ways you can do that Sean because I’m totally against the abortion aspect of Planned Parenthood…”

    There are many ways to do that, because I’m totally against the abortion aspect, but I’ve had many women, I’ve had many Republican conservative women come up and say Planned Parenthood serves a good function other than the one aspect,” he said. “We have to help women.”

Trump on Hugh Hewitt Show on shutting down government to defund PP

    “I can tell you this I would…if the republicans stuck together you could have done this with ObamaCare also…I think you have to in this case also – yes!”

Donald Trump on Meet The Press – 8/16/15

    “I’ve always hated the concept of abortion- always…I’m pro-life…to me I have exceptions: rape, incest, if the mother is going to die…”

Asked if he was ever a Planned Parenthood donor, Trump replied, “I don’t know. It’s possible. Like, I’ve given to so many organizations over the years. Hundreds of millions of dollars. I don’t know – I don’t think so but it’s possible…”

    “Well look, Planned Parenthood has to stop with the abortions. A lot of people consider them an abortion clinic…”

He was asked if he is ambivalent about shutting down Planned Parenthood:

Women’s health issues are important to me,” Trump said.

Asked to specify if he thinks there should be a government shut down over Planned Parenthood Trump said:


    ” I wouldn’t fund it if they have the abortion going on and it’s been a big factor so I’d certainly look into it.”

    “I would not fund if they’re doing abortions,” Trump emphasized, adding that he’d have to think about whether he would shut the government down over it, “It bothers me greatly that they’re doing the abortions and at the same time women’s health issues are very important to me. And you have a lot of other people who do that without the abortion clinic – because they really are to a large extent an abortion clinic.”

Pro-choice “death chain” claims no one is for abortion

A video published by the radically left-wing pro-abortion group, Common Sense Action, shows Planned Parenthood and abortion supporters forming a pro-abortion death chain to protest a law which would rightly define an unborn child as a person in Colorado.

Capture1

The state was one of the first states in the nation to legalize abortion on demand prior to the 1973 Supreme Court Roe V. Wade decision.

The protest termed by me as a “death chain” appears to mimic the pro-life “life chains” and claims to be opposing a Colorado proposal to define unborn babies as human beings. The video narration describes pro-life legislatures as, “The Tea-Baggers in the Colorado House.

The youtube “about” text reads, “Starting on Ash Wednesday, March 5, to Good Friday, April 18, an anti-choice group said they would protest at each of our women’s health centers in Colorado, so we have been showing up to protest these haters at the Planned Parenthood at Fillmore and Centennial.

Capture6

The video narrator calls the Personhood movement the “radical Vatican ideology of defining life as beginning at fertilization” and then calls the unborn child in the womb a “hollow ball of differentiating cells” and the pregnant mother the “female host within whose body it dwells.”

Towards the end of the nauseating video, the narrator says, “Pro-choice is not pro-abortion, no one is for abortion.”

Sorry, but, watching your pro-abortion video, it doesn’t look that way to me….

Am I Not a Child?

AmINotACHildn

The Am I Not a Child media campaign is hard hitting televised messaging designed by members of the Black community to directly address the Black and Hispanic communities.

Ayesha Kruetzmeface11Abortion is having a devastating impact on the ability of our communities to flourish,” says, Ayesha Kruetz of the Frederick Douglas Foundation of New York.

She goes on to say, “It all comes down to our unwillingness as a society to protect the personhood of Black and Hispanic preborn boys and girls. Abortion is a concern for the Frederick Douglas Foundation. It represents the same root problem that permitted the enslavement of Blacks in the U.S.— refusing to acknowledge the personhood and therefore the ‘inalienable’ rights of the black man. That is exactly what the Supreme Court did in Roe vs Wade. And it is decimating our people.

In 1787 we asked, ‘AM I NOT A MAN AND A BROTHER?’ and we overcame. The time has come for the Blacks and Hispanics of Rochester to raise our voice for the future of our people and ask, “Am I Not a Child?”

Pro-life Personhood leader attacked in home with pregnant wife and small kids- Media Ignores

Personhood Leaders Suffer Violent Attacks from Pro-Abortion Terrorists Following ‘Newsweek’ Feature

DENVER, July 2, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — On the heels of the release of an article profiling Personhood USA leaders Keith and Jennifer Mason, featured in Newsweek magazine and online at The Daily Beast, the Mason’s home residence was violently vandalized by pro-abortion activists. A few days after the attack, dedicated pro-life volunteer Everett Stadig was assaulted while petitioning for Colorado’s personhood initiative and suffered several injuries, including a broken hip which required surgery.

The Newsweek article profiled the Masons and their work to champion the personhood rights of every human being. The Daily Beast’s notoriously liberal audience took exception to the pro-life beliefs of the Masons, resulting in several physical threats posted in the comments beneath the article. After viewing these threats, one reader tracked down the Mason’s home address and posted it in the comment section.

“The article does state that we have three small children, and that my wife is due to deliver our fourth child very soon,” explained Keith Mason, President of Personhood USA. “It is shocking to consider that someone would be so cruel and heartless to attack a home with a pregnant woman and small children inside. Apparently, the pro-choice crowd has no more compassion for born children than they do for the preborn.”

In the middle of the night, a large rock was heaved through the double-paned glass of their front door, scattering glass throughout their living room and across the front porch, covering their children’s toys and items for the new baby. The pro-abortion criminals also spray painted coat hangers and vulgarity in large letters on the front and sides of their house.

The violence didn’t end there. The same week, Stadig was criminally assaulted, resulting in multiple injuries and hospitalization.

“Our reaction is one of puzzlement. What kind of person would terrorize the home of a family with young, innocent children inside? We’re left wondering what these abortion fanatics hoped to accomplish,” continued Mason. “Not only are these hateful attacks uncalled for, but they have renewed our resolve to press forward. It is a great testimony that even as Everett recuperates in the hospital he is undeterred, even asking hospital staff and visitors for their signatures on his personhood petition. We are all following his example, pressing forward despite hardships, determined to continue to defend the lives of women and babies – all of whom deserve better than abortion.”
