Why the sudden aggressive push on abortion laws?

Our latest God’s Revolution podcast episode tries to make sense out of the insane pro-abortion laws and comments that have been in the news recently. Do you wonder what exactly what is happening and why? How can state lawmakers can get away with legalizing infanticide — and what’s behind their enthusiasm?

Lori Parker of First Care Women’s Clinic in Marietta, Ga., and Jay Watts of Merely Human Ministries will crack open the mystery surrounding this sudden surge of aggression against the unborn, and they also will suggest practical ways you can join God’s grassroots revolution to rescue the most vulnerable members of our society from the enemy who seeks to steal, kill, and destroy.

‘If it was wanted, it was a baby; if it wasn’t, it was a fetus’

CNSNews.com reports that retired Ob-Gyn Dr. Kathi Aultman told the 46th annual March for Life that “The only time I had any qualms about doing abortions was during my neonatal rotation where I was trying to save babies the same gestational age as those I was aborting.”

Then she began to notice that unmarried women who kept their babies did well, in contrast to those who were dealing with the physical and psychological consequences of abortion, CNS reports.

“A woman cannot kill her child and remain unscathed,” Altman added. “There are millions of women in the United States who have had abortions. … They’re hurting and need your help and compassion. They need to know that God wants to heal and restore them. Thank you for protecting those who cannot protect themselves, those who wouldn’t have a chance to live if you did nothing.”

In spite of her Down syndrome, ‘she’s just like any other kid’

With this past week’s story about people offering to adopt an unborn child diagnosed with Down syndrome, this item from ESPN Video takes on new significance.

It’s an emotionally powerful story from E:60 s Tom Rinaldi about a perfectionist US Air Force pilot and marathon runner who was crushed to learn he and his wife were expecting a baby with Down syndrome.

Heath White pressured his wife, Jennifer, about having an abortion, but she refused. By his own admission “scared and selfish,” Heath said, “My main concern was what people would think about me … What weakness inside me caused that? I felt like I was getting broken baby. All I could think about was why me?”

When Paisley was born March 16, 2007, Heath stopped running competitively. He was filled with self pity and emotionally absent from his family.

Then came the day he tickled Paisley. She laughed and tried to push him away. It was a moment of transformation for Heath.

“I realized she’s just like any other kid,” he said. “She’s my kid.”

Heath began to run again, but now he ran pushing Paisley in a stroller. On March 4, 2012, Heath and Paisley completed 321 race miles together … and important number as it symbolizes the genetic disorder that causes Down syndrome — the third replication of 21st chromosome.

Heath now understands what he didn’t comprehend before: “Everything I’ve done, everything I’ve tried to accomplish, it was never going to be perfect. But my love for Paisley, that’s perfect.”
