Abortion: The American Infanticide8 and Genocide8 of the 21st Century
The abortion issue has just taken on increased significance with the recent reported proposal by a Virginia politician, Virginia House of Delegates Democrat, Kathy Tran, to allow abortions in the 4th trimester – in other words, kill after birth. The proposal apparently has the blessing of the Virginia Governor, Democrat Ralph Northam (who is also under political fire for “blackface” and KKK photo issues). I believe the attainment of the goal of the proposal has been a defining issue and intent of the progressive movement and Democrat Party for many years. They continue to offer more irrational, extremist proposals in many areas of the Unites States of America (USA) Government. We are already far down “the slippery slope!” This onward march must be stopped!
A little on-line research on birth control methods make it pretty clear, to a logical mind, that some of the methods actually abort the conception. The baby is aborted when the union is prevented from attachment to the woman’s body. With some, or perhaps all, implantation of the union (fertilization) is prevented, and the conceived baby dies. In the case of the “morning-after” pill, the result is achieved by massive hormonal doses. The use of hormones plays a major role in birth control methods and operate through the above-described mechanics. So, the progression of abortion has taken us from elimination (subjection to destruction or death) of the conception product (baby) to the apparent state of killing the baby at or after birth. Pure evil!
An American, Margaret Sanger, founded the organization known as “American Birth Control League (ABCL)” in response to concerns about the rising “black” and “yellow” perils in America. This organization eventually morphed, along with others, into Planned Parenthood. Concerns for their abortion activity, and funding by taxpayers through the US Government, have been widely discussed and opposed. Their goals appear evident.
It is hoped that the below Bible verses will aid you in your study of the abortion issues. A good Bible commentary may be very helpful in interpretation of some of the verses, if needed. I feel that most are pretty straightforward in meaning. In comparing to other Bible versions, you will likely find some differences in interpretation of some verses. I feel that the King James Version is closer to the language usage of the time period of interest.
