The Memorial to the Missing at the Baptist Building stands in mute testimony to the 50 million lives that have been lost to legalized abortion since 1973. Each penny in the Memorial represents one of the 50 million babies that has been killed since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down state abortion laws and opened the door to abortion nationwide during the entire nine months of pregnancy.

 The coins not only represent aborted babies but “the difficult process of decision-making, fear and loneliness” involved with abortion. It asks passersby to “stop, pray, consider what we are doing as a nation, ask God to forgive us, seek ways to help those who are struggling with the decision and look to the Lord to restore each of us.

When the Memorial is finally emptied, the total donations to the campaign will be placed in a special account with the Mississippi Baptist Foundation to be used for pro-life programs and causes.

OH SNAP!!!!!!

literally the most idiotic argument that has ever been. Its embarrassing that you think this makes sense. This is an example of the worst part of the pro choice movement. Like you should forever be ashamed. Not to mention that there are pro lifers of every faith, political ideology, gender and sexual orientation. All of which you are marginalizing. Te fact that people actually came up with this shows pure ignorance and hate. Stop this. Seriously its no wonder pro life is becoming the majority. What rational people actually look at this and think yes?? no points for you.

the fact that they think they “got us” when they say this. I have never a met a pro-lifer who would support killing a child if they were gay. that is the most ridiculous idea. WE DO NOT HATE GAY PEOPLE. and we sure as heck do not want them dead! pro-life is about acknowledging that every human beings life is valuable. being gay doesn’t take away the fact they they are a human being whos life is valuable as much as a straight persons. this argument pisses me off more than any other pro-choice bullshit because it just blows my mind at how ridiculous it is. 

I think the point of the picture is to say that pro-lifers are predominantly against gay marriage which the left and some on the right seem to view as a basic human right. If that’s the case the argument above misses the point.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
I don’t see anything in there that excludes gays. OP is an idiot who is spreading BS.

The stinging tears and palpable heartbreak of a young woman deceived by Planned Parenthood say more than a book crammed with words ever could convey about the harm done to women when they are deprived of a glimpse of the humanity of their children before aborting them.

“I just got back from Planned Parenthood,” a visibly distraught young lady says in a YouTube video posted on January 19. She had just picked up records from a Planned Parenthood abortion that happened six years earlier. She says Planned Parenthood falsified the records regarding her age at the time of the abortion.

Struggling to maintain her composure, she sifts through the abortion records until she finds the ultrasound report. It indicates that she was offered and took advantage of the opportunity to view the image of her son prior to the abortion. She flatly denies that.

“I never saw my ultrasound,” she says. “I was told nothing was visible, and I was told that it wouldn’t matter—you couldn’t see a heartbeat, you couldn’t see anything… . I wouldn’t know what I was looking at.”

She displays the ultrasound form, which says that she requested and was given a copy of the image. “I wasn’t ever given a picture of my son. But when I went to Planned Parenthood today and I got all of the records, I saw that ultrasound for the very first time—about six years later,” she says, choking back tears. She points to an image in which she says she can see her baby’s heart beating.

She appeals to Planned Parenthood and to the people who support it with a heartfelt cry:

I just want to know why I was denied seeing this. You say that women don’t change their minds because of it. I don’t know if I would have, but if I had, would it have been so bad? You talk about choice, and all this crap, but when we want to pass laws about women having to see their ultrasound before having an abortion, [you say] that’s wrong. So basically, what you are saying is you don’t want to give them full choice. You just want them to pick your choice.

“I can’t even explain how much I sobbed when I saw that.”

She tearfully continues,

And my world just fell apart all over again. This was my child. This wasn’t a choice or just a little something that I got rid of in a simple medical procedure. This was my son. And this is the first time I’ve ever seen him. And there is something so wrong about that.

Until we stop allowing Planned Parenthood to obfuscate and lie about the humanity of those lives it considers worth sacrificing for the money it makes, the world will continue to be deceived and Planned Parenthood will continue to flourish, becoming fatter and fatter on our tax dollars and on the blood of the precious innocent aborted babies who so often get omitted from the abortion debate.

-From Live Action’s website

Look me dead in the eyes and tell me that Planned Parenthood doesn’t lie and hurt women like Miss Albany Rose.

Look HER straight in the eyes and tell her that what she went through was wrong in the most extreme form.

Will you continue to defend PP’s lies? Will you continue to deny all of the information that is being presented to you because it doesn’t fit your paradigm paralysis?

Planned Parenthood lies. They give out low-quality contraception, and when the woman gets pregnant they tell her abortion will fix her problems and dismiss any concerns about abortion rather than addressing them. They don’t give her all the information about the resources available to her including financial assistance during and after her pregnancy as well as adoption options that would allow her to choose and meet the parents and keep contact with her child if she chooses.

They don’t give her information about support that she can get if she chooses to parent. They don’t keep her supplied with diapers and formula and baby clothes.

They don’t ensure that she has all the information about how big and developed her baby is or what abortion would do to her baby. They don’t tell her that the heart starts beating after three weeks, and they don’t tell her what they’re going to do to stop it.

They don’t help her find the best option for her. They lead her to the best option for their bottom line.

Anonymous asked: You don't need the bible to confirm that abortion is the killing of a human being. Science has already confirmed it. Life begins at the moment of conception. That's not an opinion, that is scientific fact. And we are supposed to be endowed with the unalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Abortion violates the very first unalienable right of all human beings. Without the right to life, all other rights are meaningless...

Well said, Anon. :)

imhorribleatnamingthings asked: Also, none of the verses you mentioned explicitly say that abortion is wrong, even though women did abort their pregnancies in Biblical times (they used to use primitive methods to do so, but ending a pregnancy was still a common thing to do back then). So all you're doing is putting words in God's mouth. And even if you're not a Christian, I'm sure you can agree that it's wrong to make assumptions about God.

Nearly nothing in the bible explicitly says anything is wrong or right (with a few exceptions). It’s really written rather vaguely, that’s why people have been able to cite it as basis for their beliefs… even when their beliefs are directly contradictory to each other. Saints and heretics alike have used the bible to persuade people to follow them. The book is not flawed, the interpretation of it’s message is.

The passages I posted do not explicitly say abortion is wrong because, well, it was written thousands of years ago and I’m sure they never imagined a time when people kill babies by the thousands on a regular basis (we outpace any abortions they carried out back then several times over). The passages do, however, show the value of life and humanity. They show the importance of protecting life and preserving human life.

I’ve never presumed to put words in God’s mouth, only the interpretation of his teachings and his prophet’s teachings. You can read the bible, or torah, or koran, or any religious text and you’ll see an underlying message of morality. Most religions agree that you shouldn’t kill, especially the most innocent among us. You really don’t need a deity or book to tell you these things though. These should be self-evident and obvious.

I make no assumptions about God. This blog actually does not condone or push any religion, just ideals. I’ve always tried to steer clear of religious theology as it usually only leads to arguments fueled by anger and resentment rather than fact and logical reasoning.

imhorribleatnamingthings asked: Just FYI, the Bible wasn't even thought of as being pro-life until the 1970s. So why pretend that it definitely is pro-life, then, especially when all you have as "proof" of that claim is a bunch of vague verses that you've taken completely out of context? You do realize that God himself condones infanticide and abortion many times throughout the Bible, don't you? Try reading Hosea 9:11-16, Hosea 13:16, Isaiah 13:15-18, Ezekiel 9:5-7, Numbers 31:17, and Psalm 137:9.

First off, when did I say the bible was anything? What post did I ever bring up the bible? Don’t put words in my mouth.

Secondly, do you really need a book to tell you what is wrong and what is right? Do you really need something outside of yourself to tell you some things are moral and some are not? Are you really that weak that you need an outside entity to tell you what to think, to do, to say, how to act? Are you that unrestrained?

That aside, who cares when the bible was used to point out bad behavior? And, to be frank, of course the bible (or anything else) was probably only brought up in the seventies as a case against abortion, because abortion wasn’t a national issue until Roe v. Wade in 1973. Your argument is definitely flawed there.

On top of that, you’re citing old testament to prove your point in a Christian book. Christians do not follow the laws of the old testament… wait for it… they follow the teachings and laws of Jesus Christ. He washed away humanities sins and freed them from the old ways. Again, your argument is very flawed.

Finally, if you insist on posting scripture to prove your point:

  • Proverbs 24:11-12  Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,”   does not he who  weighs the heart perceive it?   Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work?
  • Jeremiah 1:4-5 Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
  • Isaiah 49:1,5  Listen to me, O coastlands,  and give attention, you peoples  from afar.    The LORD called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name… And now the LORD says, he who formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob back to him; and that Israel might be gathered to him—for  I am honored in the eyes of the LORD,  and my God has become my strength.
  • Psalms 22:9-10 Yet you are he who  took me from the womb;  you made me trust you at my mother’s breasts.  On you was I cast from my birth, and from  my mother’s womb you have been my God.
  • Judges 13:2-5 There was a certain man of Zorah, of the tribe of the Danites, whose name was Manoah.  And his wife was barren and had no children. And the angel of the LORD appeared to the woman and said to her, “Behold, you are barren and have not borne children, but you shall conceive and bear a son.  Therefore be careful and drink no wine or strong drink, and eat nothing unclean, for behold, you shall conceive and bear a son.  No razor shall come upon his head, for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb, and he shall begin to save Israel from the hand of the Philistines.”
  • Genesis 9:5-6 And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning:  from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man.  “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.”
  • Deuteronomy 27:25  Cursed be anyone who takes a bribe to shed innocent blood.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.
  • Proverbs 6:16-19 There are six things that the Lord hates,  seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood a heart that devises wicked plans,  feet that make haste to run to evil,  a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
  • Matthew 18:1-2, 10  At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them…See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
  • 1 Corinthians 3:16-17  Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

A more in-depth breakdown can be found here.

Also, when you think of the conception of Christ, would that not have been the perfect scenario for a Jewish man to carry out an abortion in antiquity? His to-be wife comes up pregnant and he’s sure it isn’t his child… instead, God sends an angel to tell Joseph to not fear because the child is from him. That’s pretty clear to me. 

So, while I’m not a devout follower of any particular theology, even I can see the flaws in your argument. Trying to justify the wholesale slaughter of perfectly innocent life through religion, or any other means, is immoral and downright sadistic. You don’t need a god or book to tell you that ending the life of a human being that has done absolutely nothing wrong is wrong.

Have a great day and may your deities have mercy on you.
