SLB has submitted her opening statement in which she takes issue with some of my views. To make matters clearer for the readers of these points of view, I have reproduced her statement and interspersed my comments. My comments are in boldface type.
The Smith’s rescued Laura at the age of four and a half from an adopted home that didn’t want her. This precious girl fit right in with their other three children. Raised in a Christian home, her parents had taught her the value of life. At the time of her death she was 22, engaged to a soldier and looking forward to all life brings.
Do you want an abortion… Sounds pretty easy doesn’t it? Yea, just go and get an abortion. There’s no attachment, right? Look, I know everyone has been given free choice by God, but when contemplating an abortion take some time to think about it, and if it’s right for you.
You got to have some proper empathy for all your patients. The main reason behind this is that this is how your patients are going to love you and adore your services.
They see wealth creation by the public as being a sin of some kind. They believe that wealth should be confiscated by the Government, and handed out so-called fairly so that everybody has an equal share of the wealth. This system when it has been instituted has always failed in that only the top elites get wealthy, everyone else gets sick and dies in the streets. Welcome to the old Soviet Union style of government, where everyone has exactly the same amount of misery that everyone else has, and the majority starve to death while waiting in the bread lines.
Pragmatically, if we listen to the new age crowd’s answer, it seems that Jesus would do a lot of things that traditional Christians would find questionable, and that are in conflict with Jesus’ own words. Somehow, I just cannot envision the Son of God blowing up an KLINIK ABORSI AMAN. I can’t see him blasting out an ungodly heavy metal noise from an electric guitar to “bless” a congregation. And there are a hundred other things I know he would not do that others do “in his name”.
The March 2, 1994 edition of the Southaven Press says, “The Tri State Women’s Medical Center, located on Highway 51 in Southaven, has been the site of numerous anti-abortion protests over the past two years.” Back then, I remember driving by and seeing some of those protestors standing at the edge of the street holding up signs. My heart was deeply grieved over what was happening. There is no telling how many babies were actually killed during that time, but I can assure you, God knows the exact number. Unfortunately, the protesting did not work.
In every instance where Socialism/Communism has been the form of Government, there has been millions of innocent lives taken by force, in other words “murder!” The Soviets tortured and murdered millions, many by lack of medicine, and food. Were all familiar with what Hitler did, how he had millions exterminated in the Nazi gas chambers, or shot and thrown into large pits. China and other Communist countries have murdered many people by various means, or imprisoned them, and tortured them, most of them Christians. It never fails! Socialism Kills!
