Another Abortion Rant

Yes, because I can, I will again.

  • A baby/fetus/embryo or whatever is not actually a part of a woman's body. It's separate. It has it's own unique DNA, not shared with the mother. It also has its own supply of blood, not shared with the mother. While it relies on the mother for a period of time, abortions can occur when the baby can live outside of the womb.
  • A bald eagle egg is not an adult eagle, but (legally) it is recognized as having the potential to be an adult eagle. It's protected by law. You will go to jail if you break the egg. Why? because what is inside the egg is an eagle, even if it is the embryonic stage. Why should humans be treated differently? The argument of humans not being endangered is irrelevant. You must make the assumption that those who were killed without having the chance to grow up and make a difference in our world wouldn't also be able to create a sustainable future.
  • It takes two to make a baby. Why should the woman alone be allowed to kill her offspring? In adoptions, the male has to sign over rights, but he has no say in whether his unborn child can live or not?
  • There is no reason for an abortion to save the life of the mother if the life of the baby is viable. As a parent, if there was a tornado coming for you, would you not shield your child rather than expose them to the elements?
  • Babies can be male and female. A true supporter of reproductive health/women's rights would not be condoning the death of women by women.
  • Lack of respect for human life (and if a lack of a heartbeat in a person signifies death, the detection of one signifies life) leads to destruction in society. Abortion becomes a convenience or an excuse. More horrific violence increases.

Another Abortion Vent

As a woman, I have the right to make decisions about my body. As a pregnant woman, I realize it's not just about me. There is another person, another body, inside of me that doesn't have a voice and I shouldn't assume it doesn't want to have one by having its voice cut from me. I exercise my right to choose - LIFE! No one should be given the right to murder.

I think it hypocritical to say you shouldn't be able to govern other people, but by allowing women to choose abortion, they are doing just that. They are governing the lives of other people and not just governing, but silencing and destroying.

Same-Sex Marriage and Why I oppose it

I've decided to write a blanket post, so when people ask me directly, I can direct them here. First off, I'm not a Bible thumping knock-on-your-door screaming that you'll go to hell unless you accept Jesus as your savior type of person. No, that's not how I do things because that's not how I think Jesus saves people (salvation is not a work of us).

One thing I do not do is completely ignore others who are begging for answers or are wanting an opinion (even though what I give as my honesty may not be what they want to hear). I can, most whole-heartedly tell you that my faith and conviction shows me that homosexuality is a sin and same-sex marriage is not marriage at all. It's not normal. Don't even try comparing it to nature.

Jesus promoted salvation, but that salvation can't be had without repentence. Many people reference Jesus when he said "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her", saying we shouldn't be judging people. Yet, Jesus told the woman "go and sin no more." It has absolutely NOTHING to do with hatred, but rather the inability to recognize what is natural and sinful. I am born with the desire to sin. That doesn't mean I should be acting on it or disregarding the Bible's instruction (and there are many verses including Romans 1, Jude 1:7, and Hebrews 10:26-27). "If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God."  Sin is anything that is contrary to the will of God. You can say homosexuality is not "wrong", but that doesn't make it not a "sin". And while marriage is not just about sex, I'm not sure how it's possible to "be fruitful and multiply" when with humans, to people of the same gender are incapable of multiplying (without scientific intervention obviously - you can get donor eggs/sperm). In addition, how is it natural to kill out one's species? People joke about it as God's way of creating population control, but that doesn't make sense as he clearly says in his Word that male+male and female+female relations are not natural and he has said more than once to "be fruitful and multiply", so why would there be a need for population control in the Bible (and homosexuality is clearly practiced by the heathens)? God doesn't contradict himself.

The Bible is consistent from the Old Testament through the New (yes, male+male and female+female relations are listed as unnatural in the New Testament). Everything must be understood in context. So if you want to get on the topic of polygamy (cause I know you want to go there), the difference is that in the OT, God doesn't really speak on it being okay, but in the New Testament you see a clear shift where elders should be the husband of one wife and Paul is always singular when he addresses husbands and wives, and when he is ever plural it is clear he is talking about groups (i.e. all the spouses in an assembly). Remember, God clearly created Eve for Adam, not multiple women. Childbirth was not the same pre-fall and we can't know what type of relationship they had, but we DO know they were made for each other. Anatomically MADE for each other. God allowed polygamy for a time (a variety of reasons could be assumed including increasing global population, protection, provisions, etc), it was not a part of his original design and  definitely it is not insinuated in the New Testament as being something "okay".

I can't make anyone believe that homosexuality is a sin, no more than I can make people believe abortion is murder or that God exists. I believe that people's hearts are hardened. I am incapable of unhardening them. That must come through conviction by the Holy Spirit after the gospel has been presented. Then, obviously, some choose to ignore the conviction and go their own way. Just as wanting to help an alcoholic with their addiction, they have to recognize they have a problem before they get to the point where they want to do anything about it.

 It's not hatred, it's love. I don't want anyone to go to hell. It's not intolerance. It's conviction. I'm not saying that same-sex people are incapable of loving each other and what they feel for each other is not real. I'm just saying I don't believe it's normal. You can legally have sex with a goat in 16 states. That doesn't make it normal (or right).

I'm also not being wishy-washy on how I feel. This is how I have been. Always. I'm not going to change. If anything, I'm only going to become more defiantly conservative.

Also, thank you for sharing. Let the whole world know I'm not afraid of my beliefs. I consider it empowering. +1 to God. I made an impact, however small, that drove you to share it.

Leaving the end of this with the Nicene Creed (and the gospel in a nutshell).

I believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation, he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary, and became fully human. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate. He suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who in unity with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one holy Christian and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Abortion and Planned Parenthood

So this is how Planned Parenthood defines abortion (which, for the record, has nothing to do with parenthood but assisted murder), "a suction machine gently empties your uterus". Seriously. You'd have to be a complete idiot to not realize that there is a life in the uterus before it is sucked out. Their site lists abortion as an option for pregnancy. I know some people think they don't have a choice and may not be able to afford/provide the love a child needs, but there are plenty of people who wait years to adopt and would love to have a child that would otherwise have its life exterminated because someone thought it was a good option. It costs less to end a human life than it does to create one for women struggling with infertility (and that is the honest truth). Why doesn't the government fund programs that help women with infertility? They can help people with diabetes, cancer, abnormalities like a deviated septum and cleft pallete, yet helping a woman achieve the MOST fundamental aspect of life (reproduction) is off the table. WHY? I'm sure no parent could imagine sucking out their child's body parts. Yet, that is what happens. Save the baby humans!

So I'm saying this because it's become a problem. I am sick and tired of reading about "tolerance". Why? Because the people who speak about "tolerance" are the same ones that have dropped me from voice acting roles, removed me as friends on Facebook, and told my friends to "go to hell".
Intolerance: unwillingness or refusal to tolerate or respect contrary opinions or beliefs, persons of different races or backgrounds, etc.
So I have contrary beliefs and you call me intolerant, yet YOU are the one not tolerating ME.

I tolerate you. I can have different opinions and voice them, but that doesn't mean I don't tolerate you.
