Sanctity Of Life

Promoting the Sanctity of Human Life and the Right to Life for the Baby in the Womb

Refuting the culture of death as in abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, suicide & doctor-assisted suicide, Abortifacients, cloning & embryonic stem cell research, and the killing of excess babies, as in in-vitro-fertilization (selective reduction).

Introduction

In today’s humanistic culture, individuals are tinkering with ethical boundaries in science, namely genetics, pushing research and experimentation to the limit. In 1973, the monumental court case, Roe v. Wade, altered the bioethical playing field in the United States forever. For the first time in history, a mother could kill her unborn child without any legal consequences. Years later, a sheep named Dolly was cloned in a Scottish laboratory, and scientists around the world claimed they could clone human beings next. Likewise, stem cell research is one of the pivotal debates of the twenty-first century. In-vitro fertilization poses severe ethical concerns because it often leads to the destruction of excess embryos. Infanticide, euthanasia, and suicide, while not necessarily “scientific,” are issues also facing our modern “culture of death.”

Abortion Fact #5: The Right To Not Be Killed Supersedes The Right To Not Be Pregnant

The Virginia Christian Alliance recommends to our readers to visit "Abortion Facts", which lists 20 facts on abortion.  We have published Abortion Fact #5 and the links to the rest below. 

The comparison between a baby's rights and a mother's rights is unequal. What is at stake in abortion is the mother's lifestyle, as opposed to the baby's life. Therefore, it is reasonable for society to expect an adult to live temporarily with an inconvenience if the only alternative is killing a child.

Of course a child does not have more rights than her mother. Any two people are equal, and any two people have equal rights. Hence, a mother has every bit as much right to live as any child. But in nearly all abortions, the woman's right to live is not an issue, because her life is not in danger.

The mother has not only the right to live, but also the right to the lifestyle of her choice—as long as that choice does not rob other people of even more fundamental rights, the most basic of which is the right to live. The right to a certain lifestyle is never absolute and unconditional. It is always governed by its effects on others.

Planned Parenthood states: [1]

The desire to complete school or to continue working are common reasons women give for choosing to abort an unplanned pregnancy.

Abortion Fact #4: It Is Just, Reasonable, and Necessary for Society to Outlaw Certain Choices.

my body my choice

The Virginia Christian Alliance recommends to our readers to visit "Abortion Facts", which lists 20 facts on abortion.  We have published a portion of Fact #4 and the links to the rest below. 

The pro-choice position always overlooks the victim's right to choose. The women don't choose rape. The blacks didn't choose slavery. The Jews didn't choose the ovens. And the babies don't choose abortion.

The only way people can successfully live together in community is to give up a measure of personal freedom. Personal choices that infringe on the life or livelihood of another human being must be legislated against. Therefore, it is impossible to justify abortion by simply arguing that women should be "free to choose."The only way people can successfully live together in community is to give up a measure of personal freedom.

(VIDEO) Planned Parenthood Med Director: “dismemberment” Abortion “checkbox” Skirts Federal Partial-Birth Law

(VIDEO END OF ARTICLE) Dr. Suzie Prabhakaran, Medical Affairs VP for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, Confirms PPFA Uses Paperwork to Fake Compliance with Late-Term Abortion Rules

ORLANDO, July 27–Never-before-released undercover video shows Dr. Suzie Prabhakaran, the Vice President of Medical Affairs for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, graphically discussing Planned Parenthood’s late-term “dismemberment” and partial-birth abortion protocols in the context of fetal body part harvesting.

The new video comes as the U.S. Senate is debating provisions to terminate taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business.

At a Planned Parenthood conference evening reception, CMP investigators posing as buyers from a biotech company discuss partnering with Dr. Prabhakaran’s Planned Parenthood affiliate in order to harvest fetal organs and tissues from the 2nd-trimester abortions performed there. Prabhakaran advises that her affiliate is merging with the Orlando Planned Parenthood, which does abortions up to 23 weeks and has a high procedure volume, with eighteen abortions at 18-weeks and above scheduled for the next week.

Fact #3: Beginning at Conception, Every Pregnancy Involves Two or More Bodies.

what about my body

The Virginia Christian Alliance recommends to our readers to visit "Abortion Facts", which lists 20 facts on abortion.  We have published a portion of Fact #3 and the links to the rest below 

No matter how you spin it, women don't have four arms and four legs when they're pregnant. Those extra appendages belong to the tiny human being(s) living inside of them.

The slogan, "My Body, My Choice," betrays a tragic misunderstanding of what is taking place inside the womb. At no point in pregnancy is the developing embryo or fetus simply a part of the mother's body.

There are a number of clear biological facts, and all sorts of legal precedents, that easily refute the claim that the embryo or fetus is simply part of the mother's body.

Proof #1: Different genetic code.

An individual's body parts all share the same genetic code. If the unborn child were actually a part of the mother's body, the unborn's cells would have the same genetic code as the cells of the mother. This is not the case. Every cell of the unborn's body is genetically distinct from every cell in the mother's body.

Fact #2: Every human being is a person.

is my humanity not enough

The Virginia Christian Alliance recommends to our readers to visit "Abortion Facts", which lists 20 facts on abortion.  We have published a portion of Fact #2 and the links to the rest below AND please do not miss the video below.

Abortion Fact #2

Personhood is properly defined by membership in the human species, not by stage of development within that species. 

A living being's designation to a species is determined not by the stage of development but by the sum total of its biological characteristics— actual and potential—which are genetically determined…. If we say that [the fetus] is not human, e.g. a member of Homo sapiens, we must say it is a member of another species. But this cannot be. [1] 

Dictionaries define person as a “human being,” “human individual,” or “member of the human race.” What makes a dog a dog is that he came from dogs. His father was a dog and his mother was a dog, and therefore he is a dog. What makes a human a human is that he came from humans. His father was a human person and his mother was a human person, so he can be nothing other than a human person. [2]

Fact #1: Every Abortion Kills An Innocent Human Being

is my humanity not enough

The Virginia Christian Alliance recommends to our readers to visit "Abortion Facts", which lists 20 facts on abortion.  We have published a portion of Fact #1 and the links to the rest below AND please do not miss the video at the end.

Abortion Fact #1

It is false to claim that no one knows when life begins and dishonest to argue that abortion does not kill a human being.

Every new life begins at conception. This is an irrefutable fact of biology. It is true for animals and true for humans. When considered alongside the law of biogenesis – that every species reproduces after its own kind – we can draw only one conclusion in regard to abortion. No matter what the circumstances of conception, no matter how far along in the pregnancy, abortion always ends the life of an individual human being. Every honest abortion advocate concedes this simple fact.

Why A Virginia Woman’s 3rd Trimester Self-Abortion Should Make Us Question Abortion

fb reactions third trimester

 (First published by   | 

In early 2016, the remains of a baby aborted in the third trimester were found buried in the backyard of Richmond, Virginia, resident Michelle Frances Roberts. Since that time, an investigation into the child’s death has determined that the baby died from “penetrating injuries to the head and maternal use of methadone, alprazolam and amphetamines,” an administrator at the Chief Medical Examiner’s office in Richmond told the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Roberts has been indicted on the charge of “producing an abortion ‘with intent to destroy her child,’ a Class 4 felony.”

According to an earlier article by the Times-Dispatch, Roberts’ boyfriend’s mother informed police that “Roberts admitted in July 2015 that she was five months pregnant at the time and… Roberts was due to deliver in September or October 2015.” Then, in mid-October of 2015, the boyfriend’s mother “noticed that Roberts no longer appeared to be pregnant but Roberts did not directly confirm it.”

Planned Parenthood’s depictions of abortion are far from reality

 LIVE ACTION

Planned Parenthood’s depictions of abortion are far from reality

Planned Parenthood would like for you to think that an abortion is a routine medical operation. The organization, which commits more than 320,000 abortions per year, prefers to use terms that are as emotionally detached as possible, like “fetus,” instead of “baby,” and “the pregnancy” instead of “preborn child.”

These aren’t efforts in accordance with a desire to be medically accurate. A recent Planned Parenthood video illustrates that by depicting an abortion as nothing more than removing a tiny blue dot from a mother’s uterus. The Planned Parenthood video states, “During an in-clinic abortion, a doctor, a nurse, or other healthcare provider empties your uterus using gentle suction and sometimes other medical tools.”

This is medically inaccurate. Abortions are gruesome procedures. In a Live Action video which points out the Planned Parenthood video’s inaccuracies, former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino — who himself once committed over 1,200 abortions — detailed what actually happens during an abortion:

Defending the Inalienable Right to Life

First published in the Washington Times

Why legislators cannot alter the value system by which America must govern

The word “precedent” was used many times during Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing, but it was Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s questions that recalled William Blackstone’s iconic work, “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” Blackstone affirmed the parallel equality of the “laws of nature” (the moral law governing nature and inscribed on the heart of man) to the “law of God,” the revelation of that law in the Scripture. Sen. Feinstein pressed Judge Gorsuch to agree that Roe v. Wade of 1973 which decriminalized abortion was not only a precedent but something now called a “super-precedent.” She insinuated it was solidly supreme.

Pro-Life Club Wins Free Speech with New Poster Display

Carmel2

CARMEL, IN – After school administrators at Carmel High School censored and discarded a previously approved adoption poster display created by Carmel Teens for Life, the pro-life student club members hang their newly-created sign today on the cafeteria wall. The new poster will hang for 10 consecutive school days.

Last fall, student members of Carmel Teens for Life, represented by Liberty Counsel, spent over 25 hours painting a poster display which included 300 individual tiny hearts, each representing 10 lives, to symbolize the written statement “3,000 Lives Are Ended Each Day.” When one student complained to an administrator that it was “offensive,” school officials threw the poster away without consulting with the pro-life club’s leadership. School officials later claimed the multi-part poster impermissibly expressed an “ideology” and was “not approved for display.” The poster was, in fact, approved for display, as evidenced by approval stamps on each of its component pages, and it complied with school signage guidelines to the letter.

This is Autumn. She’s Planned Parenthood’s worst nightmare

PicMonkey Collage

Tim Wildmon | AFA Life is precious.  

At AFA sanctity of life is a big deal.  That's why I wanted you to see this video of a 16 year old high school student named Autumn. She is responding to a Teen Vogue article recently published entitled "What to Get a Friend Post-Abortion." Autumn's rebuttal of the article is both inspiring and indicative of the future of the pro-life movement. The video is less than ten minutes so sit back and take a look at the face of the generation that will take down abortion giants like Planned Parenthood. 

This article and video is from Students for Life

This is Autumn. She’s Planned Parenthood’s worst nightmare.

Teen Vogue recently ran a story on supposedly great ideas for a friend who just had an abortion. In reality, there were no good ideas, only ridiculous suggestions that were overtly political (an F-U-terus pin and a coloring book of liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg). SFLA did our own slideshow in response, which contained actual helpful advice, no politics involved. Then Autumn came along. She had something to say about that Teen Vogue story.
