We Need to Settle the Score on the Issue of Abortion

Right in the middle of a storm when American justice is itself on trial, we have a Supreme Court decision that just scored a big win for the protection of the most sacred and basic God-given endowments of all human beings: the right to life. In May 2021, Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared a ban on abortions after six weeks and after detection of a fetal heartbeat. It’s called the Heartbeat Act. Thanks to our Supreme Court Justices, the Heartbeat Act is now fated to remain in force in Texas.

Perhaps America does still have a conscience and some rudimentary understanding of right and wrong. Of course, you’d never know it by the commentary from Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). “Access to almost all abortion has just been cut off for millions of people,” decried the ACLU after receiving no response from the court. Their statement is true. Millions of people will be unable to suction or brutally dismember their little human resident from the womb, thanks to this “blatantly unconstitutional” law, as the ACLU describes it. But the ACLU’s claim is much like the COVID-19 pandemic response—it’s all based on pseudoscience.

The Heartbeat Act is the most strict abortion law in the country, and its enactment does effectually reverse the Roe v. Wade decision that has resulted in some 93 million killed babies since its advent in 1973. The penalty for violating this law for life is $10,000, which the ACLU fears will promote “a bounty hunting scheme” from vigilantes who will seek out these lawbreakers. Or would it just be citizens reporting a crime? Your viewpoint depends completely on your bias and preconceptions (no pun intended) about what constitutes human life.

While many Americans may side with Planned Parenthood, a strong segment of America believes that babies in the uterus are humans who deserve protection under the Constitution. But how is this determined? Is it a political issue? Should it be based on societal norms? Or should we rather look to science for the answer?

Adherence to the rigors of true scientific inquiry doesn’t always clarify all issues; nor does it answer all questions. For example, if you asked a medical doctor if the female egg is a living being, most would probably say no. Ova (or eggs) are produced in a human organ, the ovary, but eggs are not a complete human entity. Likewise, even the swimming spermatozoa (sperm) that can be observed spastically swimming under a microscope aren’t given “person” status. Are they alive? Yes. Are they human? Well, yes. They are human cells, much like your liver, heart, muscle, or kidney cells. But set apart, they are not considered a living human being.

The cells of reproduction each have only half the chromosomes (DNA) of all other human cells. Not until a sperm penetrates an egg do we have a full complement of 46 chromosomes, a zygote. When that union occurs, then we have all the mechanisms in place that signal the start of a new life. Nothing more must be added. The cells multiply and divide, gradually taking on specialized functions in an early form of human life called the embryo. The six-week embryo is alive, and it is fully human, just as it was when the sperm and egg became one entity—a human being. All that’s needed is a little time for growth. When we observe even a six-week baby by ultrasound, what do we say? “Look! There are the eyes and nose.” She’s moving her arms and legs! And, “I can see the heart fluttering!” So what is it, if not a little human being? It’s alive; it’s growing, and it is dependent on a human mother for nourishment and nurturing—no different than a newborn infant.

The question of abortion is absolutely settled by science. Not by pseudoscience, or politics, or social dogma. But let’s be clear. Life begins at conception, not at six weeks. Setting up a timeline for when a baby is decidedly human is arbitrary and whimsical.

God declared to Jeremiah the prophet, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born, I consecrated you” (Jeremiah, 1:5). Elizabeth spoke to her relative Mary, “The baby leaped in my womb for joy” at the greeting of Mary who carried the Savior of the world in her own womb.” Those in their right scientific mind or moral mind can argue that the baby who leaped in the womb for joy is not a human being deserving of protection from abortionists.

The slaying of a pregnant mother is rightly called a double homicide. Abortionists have accomplished a human genocide that has dwarfed the Holocaust or any other genocide to date. Not the inner cities where lawlessness abounds, but the womb is the most dangerous of all places to live. Abortion snuffs the life of the most innocent and helpless of all fellow humans. By constitutional law, that is called murder. So let’s not mince words. God is watching us. Planned Parenthood may label the Supreme Court’s decision as “terrifying,” “dangerous,” “and discriminatory,” but our authors of the Bill of Rights would call it a victory in every sense of the spirit of our Constitution. God is pleased, and so am I.

The soul of a nation is exposed by its treatment of the very young and very old. In recent years, America has failed miserably. We don’t even treat the in-between folks with human dignity. We have shamed God, and we have betrayed the founding fathers of this blessed nation. This is the time when we must indeed settle the matter of abortion. We cannot call ourselves a nation under God if we continue to permit the murder of our children. If we choose life, we choose to live in freedom evermore. And that’s just what the abortion issue will decide for us. Life, or death.

Robert Malone Sues the Breggins for $25 Million

Robert Malone Sues the Breggins for $25 Million

Why would Dr. Malone make his claim so large — over 25 million dollars? The effect of what he is doing should be obvious. It threatens us with financial ruin and ties up our energies. Does he want to make us too afraid and too exhausted to criticize his public policy theories and his numerous highly destructive attacks on leaders of the health freedom movement?

Special Counsel Jack Smith and the Fairytale of a Trump-led Insurrection

Has anyone before even heard of this “veteran career prosecutor” Jack Smith? His wife, Katy Chevigny, donated $2000 to Biden’s 2020 basement campaign via her Big Mouth Productions company. She likewise contributed to the campaign of ultra-radical Islamic, anti-Semitic, Rashida Tlaib. Chevigny also happens to be a producer of Michelle Obama’s documentary Becoming…

If 18th-century Virginians Could Extend these Rights, Why not 21st-century Americans?

If 18th-century Virginians Could Extend these Rights, Why not 21st-century Americans?

If the people of Virginia could recognize these rights before we declared independence, then what should prevent us now? If eighteenth-century Virginians could extend these rights to their neighbors, why not 21st-century Americans? Seeing so much of the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights in this declaration gives me a better understanding of the…

My Journey to Jesus – Stationed in Germany Without my Wife

I thought this girl might want to be more than friends and was torn between attraction to her and wanting to be faithful to my wife (I won’t lie – it was arousing). I finished showering and put my pajamas on, and all she did was say, “Good night,” and head back to Pruitt’s room. This experience was a pretty big culture shock, but the girls were right – nudity in Germany is fairly common…

History Repeats – ‘Control the Food, Control the Population’

Something more seems to be at play at the origin of our food supply. Currently, two of the most prominent investors in American farmland are China and Bill Gates. Government interference in how farmers are able to do their jobs is also causing issues. Throughout history, many mass famines and starvation of people have occurred because of government direction. Hitler, Stalin, and Mao…

A Disturbing Symptom of Social Disintegration; Mass Murder Incidents are an Ominous Sign

A Disturbing Symptom of Social Disintegration; Mass Murder Incidents are an Ominous Sign

The Social Justice approach to crime obviously contributes to the rising tide of violence. Although Leftists may consider the increasing crime rate a fair trade for the political capital they generate with their policies, what may be less obvious to many is that the degeneration of fundamental human morality poses an existential threat to the continuity of human society writ large…

Statesmanship is Overrated When You’re Fighting this Level of Corruption

Statesmanship is Overrated When You’re Fighting this Level of Corruption

Statesmanship is supposedly based on the once-long-standing rules of dignity, collegiality, and propriety, but the results are always the same. The Democrat’s rules of statesmanship are found in Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. The Left has been the only side fighting this war through the years. Republicans have been slammed to the mat so many times that they’ve gotten so used to it…

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Peter McCullough and Malcolm Out Loud – I distrust Pharma, period. That begs the question: To receive the flu shot this year or not? Should I still be concerned about potential heart scarring? Would the presence and persistence of spike in the body be a factor of whether myopericarditis resolves? Is there any present Danger from Covid-19 lab-made “Viruses”?

A Literary Thanksgiving of Gratitude: Twain, Rand, Cicero, Francovich, et al.

Ayn Rand’s take on this American holiday is truly insightful. Rand has the following to say about Thanksgiving Day: “The lavish meal is a symbol of the fact that abundant consumption is the reward of production.” Reflection about the many things that Americans should be grateful for is a healthy practice that breeds long-lasting goodwill while fending off…

Beyond Slogans – Keys to Winning in 2024

The Democrats are not going to change anything even though continued political relevance demands that they change basically everything to sound more like JFK than Karl Marx, but here is the thing ⏤ by and large the American people just don’t care about election fraud in 2020 (or 2022). Running on that may win the primary, but it will lose the general election…

Your Guide to the Coming Riots

Your Guide to the Coming Riots

One of America’s great pastimes is “the protest.” A constitutionally protected right, it has somehow gotten confused with its violent and illegal cousin, “the riot.” It seems that today’s mainstream media has a rather difficult time discerning between the two. With a building burning intensely behind him, a reporter described an actual riot as a “mostly peaceful protest.”
