Awesome news! The Republicans are standing by their word. They have just introduced HR 3 (number signifies importance to Republicans)! In this bill, siphoning money to fund abortions will be made illegal.
One day we will acknowledge before God’s Throne that crimes against humanity include murder of over 50 million American children. This is the number of deaths caused by Supreme Court judges who in 1973, went beyond our constitutional boundaries, and refused to allow States to protect the life of our defenseless children. Republican Congressman Chris Smith alongside of House Speaker John Boehner, revealed that
“When there’s no public subsidy for abortion, the number of abortions drop by about 25 percent!…HR3 will ensure that the taxpayers no longer are coerced into using taxpayer funding to subsidize the killing of an unborn child and the warping of his or her mother.”
As a Christian, I know that historically all Christians everywhere have confirmed their belief in the evil of abortion. The murder of a child was always counted as evil by all faithful Christians from the beginning of the Church at Pentecost. In accordance to God’s Mercies renewed every morning for us all, Moms who were caught off guard with abortions were provided with a time of healing after their repentance.
We find in very early Church writings the following important understanding regarding abortion:
From the letter entitled “Teachings of The Apostles/didache” dated around 50 A.D. : “You shall not slay the child by abortions.”
From the Letter to Diognetus written a few decades later: “Christians marry, as do all others; they beget children but they do not destroy their offspring” (literally, “cast away fetuses”).”
From the Letter of Barnabus: “You shall not destroy your conceptions before they are brought forth; nor kill them after they are born.”
Clement of Alexandria: “Those who use abortifacients commit homicide.”
St. Basil the Great: “The woman who purposely destroys her unborn child is committing murder.”
The Golden Mouth Preacher John Chrysostom wrote: “You do not even let a harlot remain only a harlot, but you make her a murderess as well. Indeed, it is something worse than murder and I do not know what to call it; for she does not kill what is formed but prevents its formation. What then? Do you condemn the gifts of God, and fight with His laws? What is a curse you seek as though it were a blessing? Do you make the anteroom of slaughter? Do you teach the women who are given to you for a procreation of offspring to perpetuate killing?”
Some might ask what if I am not a Christian, should I value life of innocent children as you do? “You shall not murder” is universally acknowledged as a basic human right across all civilized cultures. Also, in 1981 the United States Senate conducted extensive hearings on the “Human Life Bill.”
The official Senate report says:
Physicians, biologists, and other scientists agree that conception marks the beginning of the life of a human being – a being that is alive and is a member of the human species. There is overwhelming agreement on this point in countless medical, biological, and scientific writings.
13 medical textbooks and testimonies like the following helped shed light on the truth:
Dr. Leon Rosenberg, from Yale University: “Those witnesses who testified that science cannot say whether unborn children are human beings were speaking in every instance to the value question rather than the scientific question. No witness raised any evidence to refute the biological fact that from the moment of human conception there exists a distinct individual being who is alive and is of the human species.”
What a great day in our Republic when our Republican congressman stood by their word and introduced HR3 to stop funding of abortions through taxpayer money. I pray our LORD will grant us the Grace of Repentance, so as a nation all Americans will unite in protecting the unalienable “right to life” granted by our Creator.
