Does pain dictate whether an Unborn Child is alive?

Does pain dictate whether an Unborn Child is alive?

How many realize a small unborn child is life, but if she/he feels no pain it would be ‘OK’ to abort. When does a preborn infant feel pain In the early 17th century people felt that it had to see the light of day first. Modern gynecology has already dispelled that. Remember when ‘quickening’ (feeling the baby move), or even breathing ‘air’ was the time when viability was thought to happen The ability to survive on its own changed quickly to viability to survive various life-altering changes in the early 1900’s.

Black Genocide in the 21st Century

Black Genocide in the 21st Century

On Tuesday, November 17, 2009, Black Genocide in the 21st Century, the movie, was shown at the Mount Olivert Baptist Church.  Maafa21 was sponsored by the Virginia Christian Alliance and the Council on Biblical Principles to expose a hidden plan to eliminate the African-American population.  The movie is stunning and VCA urges all Christians to view the movie and become informed.

AUL’s Kagan File: The “Marshall Dissents” Memo, Part II

AUL’s Kagan File: The “Marshall Dissents” Memo, Part II

May 31, 2010 Also see Part 1 On Wednesday we looked at Thurgood Marshall’s dissent in Beal v. Doe[1] and Maher v. Roe.[2] In those cases, Justice Marshall wanted to mandate taxpayer funded abortions.  Studying the jurisprudence of Justice Marshall is important because he was one of Elena Kagan’s mentors and she described his constitutional interpretation as “a thing of glory”[3] because he thought the role of the court was to “show a special solicitude for the despised and disadvantaged.”[4] While that may be admirable in the abstract, the reality of Justice Marshall’s decisions concerning abortion bears further scrutiny.
