Be One?
Off the Wall, January 19 2017

Stop what you are doing for a moment and think back as far as your mind allows and recall what you were doing at a certain instant. Were you with one or both of your parents, maybe you were trying to take on the challenge of performing a special act. In all probability, either or both were watching you and you felt an eagerness to try to please.

Why did you do so? Could it be because each loves you and that love stimulates your desire to please?

The great thing about such a relationship is that you were wanted. From the moment you were born, cuddled and cared for to the time where your imagination has taken you to the place as directed above, there was an inner desire of your parents, particularly, to nurture you and raise you to be a healthy with behavior patterns, philosophies and attitudes similar to theirs.

But the happiness of your presence didn’t take place after you were born, but the moment your mother learned she was pregnant. When word got out that your mom was going to have a baby, the news spread like wildfire. Relatives exclaimed with joy. Grandparents celebrated the anticipation of a new arrival. Congratulatory messages were conveyed through every way imaginary. One more member was going to be added to the family and the day of your arrival couldn’t come soon enough.

But that’s not true always, for I have noted in the past, there are always two sides of a coin. Heads may symbolize everything’s on the up and up, but tails definitely point to negativity. Some people don’t know the difference, but they don’t want to realize that the tails part of that round copper metal currency is evil, plain and simple.

Men and women alike will be promiscuous often ending up in unwanted pregnancies. There are no celebrations connected with these acts, no joyous outbursts by family members and in some cases, acts of some relatives to promote secrecy among friends and relatives as a whole.

The couple, too, is frantic about the whole situation. The first thing that comes to their mind is the subject of abortion. “We have to kill the baby. That way no one will know!” may be the words of the mother. But these aren’t only the thoughts of this couple.

Did you know that “There have been more than 53 million abortions performed since Roe verses Wade was decided in 1973,” stated

“When you total up all forms of abortion, the grand total comes to more than one million abortions performed in the United States every year. Approximately 3,000 Americans lost their lives as a result of the destruction of the World Trade Towers Center towers on 9/11. Every single day more than 3,000 American babies are killed by abortion. It has been reported that a staggering 41 per cent of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion.”

This website went on to reveal that, “Eighty-six abortions are done for convenience sake. Planned Parenthood performs more than 300,000 abortions every year.”

How can persons grow cold to the facts that innocent children are brutally slaughtered until death?

May I describe five steps of a partial birth abortion:

  1. Guided by an ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s legs with forceps.
  2. The baby leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
  3. The abortionist delivers the baby’s entire body, except the head.
  4. He jams scissors into the baby’s skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the skull.
  5. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted.The child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.

I have seen pictures of full-term babies that were literally pulled apart until they met their demise. Their facial features told the story of the pain they were experiencing. If we people are to be civil human beings, we must act accordingly. Roe verses Wade must be stopped. Abortion is child abuse to the highest power.

January 27 marks the date for this year’s March for Life. People from all over the country will be busing to Washington, DC, to voice their say against this cruelty. There will be a rally gathering on the grounds of the Washington Monument near the corner of 15th Street and Constitution Ave. at 1 p.m. followed by the march

Will you be one of them?.
