I think the pro-life crowd

I think the pro-life crowd could do a lot more good for this society if they would stop focusing on banning abortions.

1st off it's not going to stop abortion any more than banning drugs is going to stop people from doing drugs.

think how much good they could do if they would focus their efforts on reaching out to, and helping young pregnant girls and those who are high risk for aborting. What they need is support, not judgment.

The intent of a ban on abortion

is exactly the same as a ban on murder. Of COURSE it's not going to stop it - at most, maybe it'll reduce it. The idea is to punish those who violate the rights of others - in this case, doctors who perform abortion.

Murder is wrong. Abortion is murder. Ergo, abortion is wrong. Very basic syllogism, both valid and sound.

I genuinely don't understand how people can be so flippant about killing babies. If the baby were visible, all hell would break loose against doctors who did it. We're talking prison time and execution.

Out of sight, out of mind, I guess. It's so easy to avoid taking a stand against things you can't see, no matter how atrocious.

I agree.

I'm pro-life myself. I believe the only difference between between me now and me at conception is that I'm at a different stage in this human experience.

I just don't understand how you can police it without an invasive type police force. I don't believe that meaningful solutions will come through trying to control people. I think our energies should be spent helping people, finding solutions, not creating punishments.

Good point.

A nation that claims to be founded on the preservation of and respect for rights that come from God which then turns around and does not fight for the basic right to life of its next generation while in development deserves to lose all its other rights.

The right to life trumps all other rights. An academic study of our history since the Roe v. Wade decision shows the erosion of our rights as expressed in the Constitution. It also reveals that God is not standing very strong in defense of our rights. He is allowing our liberties to be slowly stripped away. I think slowly because He is merciful and hoping we will turn from our evil ways so He can rescue us. But if we don't - well, you are seeing the unfolding of the fall of America; and we only have ourselves to blame.

Someone once said that America can never be destroyed from without, that if she is ever destroyed, she will be destroyed from within. Scripture gives us the precedence for this phenomenon:
"O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself..." Hosea 13:9 (just substitute America for Israel)

The good news is the rest of the verse, "...but in me is thine help."

The only hope for America is a real nation-wide revival of faith in God and His Word and a turning away from our wicked ways.

May it be so.

Check out this non-501(c)(3) church. they have a link to Chuck Baldwin's website under the Links tab as well as a "We the People" page - interesting!

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17

I agree, and well

stated. Even killing has justification under the law in certain circumstances, like self-defense. That hymn is supposed to be anything but judgmental. Not everyone hears it that way, I'm sure. It's fascinating to hear it in an adversarial situation. Disarming or inciting?

I was at work, so didn't listen till now,

so I was only speaking in generalities on my thoughts on abortion, but it really is fascinating, and beautiful. Such a contrast.

Shouters sound

like children against the singing.
