Despite nationwide GOP gains, the Nov. 4 elections also brought victory for pro-choice liberals in Colorado and North Dakota, where voters rejected anti-abortion ballot measures by significant margins. Voters in Colorado and North Dakota struck down the Amendments that would have included unborn fetuses as “children” in the state’s criminal code, and rejected a ballot measure that would have added to the state constitution the words, “The inalienable right to life of every human being at any stage of development must be recognized and protected.”
“We are relieved and overjoyed,” Sarah Stoesz, president of the Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund, said in a statement to Think Progress. “The personhood movement took another major blow, and it’s time for them to stop pushing this agenda on women and families in state after state.”
Well, I have a response to Sarah Stoesz: Well, actually TWO responses: The first one is this article Bad news for pro-abortionists: Researchers identify very first neurons in the 'thinking' brain ... And the second one is: Enjoy your “relief and joy” now, because you’ll be feeling something completely different, come Judgment Day! YOU may not believe in the “personhood of unborn fetuses”, but GOD does!
First of all, an unborn fetus is a LIFE! It grows from the moment of conception, which means it’s a LIVING being! As a matter of fact, in the Book of Exodus we see that YHWH views unborn fetuses as children:
Exodus 21: 22 "If people are fighting with each other and happen to hurt a pregnant woman so badly that her unborn child dies, then, even if no other harm follows, he must be fined. He must pay the amount set by the woman's husband and confirmed by judges.
And Psalm 127 tells us: 3 Children too are a gift from ADONAI; the fruit of the womb is a reward. 4 The children born when one is young. are like arrows in the hand of a warrior. 5 How blessed is the man who has filled his quiver with them; he will not have to be embarrassed when contending with foes at the city gate.
Matthew 18 has a dire warning: 1. At that moment, the disciples drew near to Y’shua and said, “Who indeed is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven? 2. And Y’shua called a child and made him stand in their midst. 3. And said, Truly I say to you, that unless you change and become like children, you will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 4. He therefore who humbles himself like this child, he will be great in the Kingdom of Heaven. 5. And he who receives one like this child in my name receives me. 6. And anyone who harms one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for him that the millstone of a donkey would be hung on his neck and he be sunk into the depths of the sea.
Matthew 18: 10. See to it that you do not despise one of these little ones. I say to you, for their Messengers in heaven at all times see the face of my Father who is in heaven.
Mark 10: 13. And children were approaching him so that he might touch them, but his disciples were rebuking those who were bringing them. 14. And Y’shua saw it and was offended and he said to them, Allow the children to come to me and do not hinder them. For because of those who are as these, the Kingdom of Elohim exists. 15. Truly I say to you, that anyone who does not receive the Kingdom of Elohim like a child, will not enter it. 16. And he took them into his arms and placed his hand upon them and he blessed them.
So, Sarah Stoesz and every person who voted against the idea that unborn fetuses do not have “the inalienable right to life at any stage of development” – know this: You are pushing MURDER ... so here’s a question for you: Would you ever urge a woman who becomes pregnant to commit suicide? Why not? What’s the difference – after all, suicide would end an unwanted pregnancy, wouldn’t it? And … unlike that tiny, blameless baby who was conceived by an act that COULD have been prevented in one of several ways, at least the woman – unlike the fetus - would have the CHOICE to do it, or not.
THINK about that!
In the meantime, we will keep people such as you in our prayers, because you are truly lost!
