Abortion groups try to shut down Pregnancy Resource Centers

See NARAL reveals national strategy to shutter pro-life pregnancy centers | LifeSiteNews.com.

The video reveals that the National Institute for Reproductive Health (NIRH) has launched an initiative, known as the “Urban Initiative for Reproductive Health,” to unite city lawmakers across the country against crisis pregnancy centers and disseminate a template gag rule similar to ones already passed in New York, Austin, and Baltimore, Maryland.

For starters, they use the deadly inaccurate “reproductive health” label.  News flash: Abortions can only occur after human beings have reproduced.  Science is not the strong suit of the pro-legalized abortion community.  Abortions are the opposite of reproductive health.

Abortionists hate competition.  They don’t trust women to be able to make decisions on their own, so they do anything they can to steer them from Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs), which will let them know that there are alternatives besides killing their unborn children.

Always remember

It is a scientific fact that the unborn are unique, living human beings from conception.  Abortion kills those human beings and is therefore immoral except to save the life of the mother.

Abortion is a sin but forgiveness and healing can be found in Jesus.

  1. Neil, you stated, “They don’t trust women to be able to make decisions on their own, so they do anything they can to steer them from Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs)”.

    If women are able to make decisions on their own, they do NOT need Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs).

      By making that statement you are demonstrating that you have no idea what PRCs do. We want women to be fully informed, and to offer help — for FREE. Abortion clinics want to make $$$, and will do and say anything to convince them to abort. Do some research.

    1. Hi Ray,

      Interesting link, I’ve never seen something like that before. Sorry I can’t be of help as I don’t know much about the Talmud, other than that while it is not part of the Bible, it actually helps provide evidence for Jesus. It makes many claims about him (even though they obviously didn’t see him as the Messiah).

      1. Hey, Neil! Are you still out there? If so, I have a question for you. I’m reading a novel and there’s a statement in the book that says the following: Jesus was born and died a Jew. I disagree. First, all babies are born as agnostics, and are taught to believe in a certain religion (Ref.: http://www.factnet.org/vbforum/showthread.php?t=8596. Second, I maintain Jesus was no longer a Jew when he died because he was the first Christian. If Jesus wasn’t the first Christian, then who was?

      2. Hi Ray,

        Thanks for checking in. I’m still here!

        While interesting questions, I’d put those in the “semantics” category rather than the heavy-duty theology category.

        I agree that regular people aren’t born with specific beliefs, but people use the term “Jewish” both religously and culturally. I don’t think it is done to deceive, but when used interchangably those terms can cause confusion. For example, there are people who refer to themselves as atheist Jews or Buddhist Jews. They don’t consider those terms to be oxymorons because they mean “Jew” in the cultural sense, as in, “my bloodline is Jewish.” So Jesus was certainly a Jew in that sense.

        It is the same way with “Christians” in this country. Countless people will check the Christian box on surveys, but if you ask a couple questions you’ll realize they aren’t Christians in the biblical sense at all. That isn’t a putdown on them, just a statement of fact. The term Christian in this country is used to mean that your parents were Christian, or that you went to church or got baptized at some point in your life. It is rarely tied to particular beliefs in the core statements of Christianity.

        Also, in Christian theology — and in reality 😉 — Jesus is God, so we probably don’t want to extrapolate all of his attributes to the general populace.

        Re. his status at death: A Christian is a follower of Christ. Technically, He wasn’t a Christian, he was Christ himself.

        Trivia: Christians weren’t origianlly called Christians. They were called “the Way.” They were first called Christians in Antioch (Acts 11).

        Probably more than you wanted, but hope that helps!

        Excellent response, Neil. I failed to consider “Jew” in the cultural sense. Thanks for the prompt response. Have a blockbuster day!

      4. Neil, you wrote about Jesus, “A Christian is a follower of Christ. Technically, He wasn’t a Christian, he was Christ himself.” After considerable thought, I disagree! (Surprised?) The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a Christian as “one who professes belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ.” (Ref.: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/christian ). I submit that Jesus did profess a belief in his own teachings and, therefore, was a Christian. Since Jesus knew what he believed and taught before anyone else, this made him the world’s first Christian. Similarly, wasn’t Martin Luther the world’s first Lutheran?

      5. Ray,

        I completely agree that Jesus agreed with his own teachings, and that Martin Luther, by parallel definition, was the first Lutheran. (The Luther reference reminds me of a Halloween episode of The Simpsons, where Lisa creates a tiny world where someone posts something on the door of a church. She exclaims, “I’ve created Lutherans!”)

  2. Neil, here’s something for you to ponder.

    KALAM CHRISTOLOGICAL CONJECTURE

    1. Originally, God made the Jews his Chosen People.

    2. Over time, Jews deviated from the True Path of God.

    3. God sent his son, Jesus, to the Jews to return them to the True Path.

    4. The Jews and Non-Jews who adopted and followed the teachings of Jesus to the True Path of God became known as Christians.

    5. The Christians replaced the Jews as God’s Chosen People.

      1. Hi, Neil!

        No, I am not Jewish; I am a former Roman Catholic.

        I cannot understand why TV evangelical Christian preachers keep referring to Jews as God’s Chosen People when Jesus tried his best to get the Jews to change some of their religious practices, and the Jews responded by getting the Romans to execute Jesus. It seems to me that Jews who continue with their pre-Jesus ways should be considered — by Christians — as Condemned People, not Chosen People, of God. Can you explain why those preachers still consider Jews as being God’s Chosen People when the Jews did all they could to get God’s only begotten son executed?

        Feel free to tweak the Conjecture all you want and name it after yourself.

        Is there anything in the Bible that specifically states that Jesus was a carpenter, or do people assume Jesus was a carpenter because his stepfather, Joseph, was one?

      2. Hi Ray — I haven’t researched this extensively, but this verse refers to Jesus as a carpenter (and his father was, as well) — Mark 6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.

        I’m probably a bad guy to ask about TV preachers ;-). I don’t watch them and when I catch them when channel surfing they tend to nauseate me. Some may be solid, but for reason you get much more sound preaching on the radio.

        Re. “chosen people,” God did choose them. He chose them because He wanted to, not because they deserved it. I highly encourage people to read through the whole Bible at least once to get a sense of how that plays out. The Israelites rejected God again and again, and He was incredibly gracious to them anyway.

        I just wrote about why Jews need Jesus today — http://4simpsons.wordpress.com/2011/06/14/jesus-still-the-only-way-to-salvation-for-everyone-including-jewish-people/ . Hope that helps!

      3. How can anyone respect a God who chose Jews to be His chosen people “because He wanted to, not because they deserved it” and, thereby, discriminates against Christians and members of other non-Jewish religions?

        Neil, here is my problem with Christians teaching their children that Jews are the chosen people of God. Upon hearing that ridiculous claim, Christian children immediately think they are not as good as Jews. Hearing this time and again damages their psyches and puts them at a distinct disadvantage later in life when, for example, conducting business deals with Jews. In my opinion, Christian children should be taught they are the NEW “chosen people” of God so they develop good self-images. Also, it is my understanding that Jews recite a daily prayer thanking God for not making them gentiles. (Ref.: http://forums.randi.org/archive/index.php/t-133880.html ) Why aren’t Christian children taught to say a daily prayer thanking God for making them Christians? Furthermore, Christian children are taught to not tell lies. It has been my observation that neither Jews nor Muslims have any misgivings about telling lies and this, in turn, again puts Christians at a disadvantage when dealing with members of those religions.

        Thanks for the provocative questions.

        I guess I don’t see it that way. Grace, by definition, is undeserved, just as God choosing a people was undeserved.

        Neil, here is my problem with Christians teaching their children that Jews are the chosen people of God. Upon hearing that ridiculous claim, Christian children immediately think they are not as good as Jews.

        First, I don’t find the claim to be ridiculous. I think there is a lot of evidence for it. That aside, if these Christians read the whole Bible then they’ll know it doesn’t say that the Jews were better. They were basically an epic FAIL at keeping their side of the bargain.

        In my opinion, Christian children should be taught they are the NEW “chosen people” of God so they develop good self-images.

        You’d make a great Calvinist! Seriously, being chosen should make us grateful to God because He chose us by his grace and not because of our works. An accurate self-image would be “sinner saved by Jesus’ sacrifice.”

        Also, it is my understanding that Jews recite a daily prayer thanking God for not making them gentiles. (Ref.: http://forums.randi.org/archive/index.php/t-133880.html )

        I didn’t click the link but I have heard that Jews in Jesus’ time did what you said. I think they missed the point.

        Why aren’t Christian children taught to say a daily prayer thanking God for making them Christians?

        Great point! I completely agree. On my prayer list app on my iPhone I include a daily prayer that starts with “Thank you for saving me and for your countless blessings.”

        Furthermore, Christian children are taught to not tell lies. It has been my observation that neither Jews nor Muslims have any misgivings about telling lies and this, in turn, again puts Christians at a disadvantage when dealing with members of those religions.

        I assume you were being tongue-in-cheek here, but here are my responses. I had a lot of Jewish friends growing up, but let’s just say we didn’t talk about theology much. But my guess is that they were taught to be truthful as much as anyone else. With Muslims, you are correct, there is actually a concept in Islam where they are allowed to lie to advance their cause.

      5. Hey, Neil! Are you aware of the book titled “The King’s Torah?”

        Revered Israeli rabbi preaches slaughter of gentile babies Settlers step up “price-tag” policy
        In November 2009, the world was stunned to learn of a shockingly popular book in Israel, The King’s Torah. It advocates murder of non-Jews and even their babies (Ref.: http://www.islamdaily.org/en/world-issues/middle-east/8716.revered-israeli-rabbi-preaches-slaughter-of-gentil.htm )

        Prohibition ‘Thou Shalt Not Murder’ applies only ‘to a Jew who kills a Jew,’ write Rabbis Yitzhak Shapira and Yosef Elitzur. (Ref.: http://www.haaretz.com/jewish-world/news/the-king-s-torah-a-rabbinic-text-or-a-call-to-terror-1.261930

        I have found a number of articles on the Internet stating that the Law of Moses only applies to Jews; non-Jews are only bound by the Seven Laws of Noah. Ref.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Laws_of_Noah
        The seven laws listed by the Tosefta and the Talmud are
        1. Prohibition of Idolatry
        2. Prohibition of Murder
        3. Prohibition of Theft
        4. Prohibition of Sexual immorality
        5. Prohibition of Blasphemy
        6. Prohibition of eating flesh taken from an animal while it is still alive
        7. Establishment of courts of law

        Several years ago, during a discussion with an orthodox Jew, he told me that he would not violate his Sabbath to save the life of a non Jew. Here’s what an article I just found on the Internet has to say about that.
        The Shabbat rules have been criticized because they have sometimes been interpreted to mean that Jews should not violate the Sabbath in order to save non-Jews that are dying.[14] Some critics point to the fact that the Talmud includes the maxim “[non-Jews] are neither to be lifted out of a well nor hauled down into it.”[15] Critics also cite the writings of Maimonides (1137–1204), an important Rabbinical commentator, who wrote “as for gentiles [non-Jews], the basic Talmudic principle is that their lives must not be saved, although it is also forbidden to murder them outright.” From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Activities_prohibited_on_Shabbat#Saving_of_human_life ]

    In my opinion, your app prayer is incomplete. I strongly recommend you append the phrase “and thank You God (or Lord) for making me a Christian.” Hey, there’s nothing wrong with helping a Christian child develop great self-esteem.
