Choosing to Reverse the Abortion Pill

A woman’s right to give an Informed Consent may be typically violated by abortionists. They are, after all, in the business of killing babies rather than saving them. All they need is the woman’s signature for consent to their treatment. For an early term pregnancy, they will have women take the Abortion pill before leaving their office.

The Abortion Pill is a drug that will prevent a fertilized egg to attach to the placenta, thus depriving living cells of needed nutrition by which they grow and develop. These cells will die within three days from lack of nourishment. The woman must then take a second pill, a drug that induces cramping in order to expel the dead tissue.  If a woman were to change her mind after taking that first pill, abortionists will say there is no turning back.

Colorado House Kills Three Pro-Life Bills

Three pro-life bills were presented in a single meeting of the House Health, Insurance and Environment Committee on February 9th : abortion pill reversal information (HB17-1086), registration and inspection of abortion facilities (HB17-1085), and defining life as beginning at conception (HB17-1108).

The testimony in favor of the bills was impressive and came from multiple perspectives including doctors and nurses, lawyers, and even women who have successfully saved babies by using the abortion pill reversal treatment. Local Rep. Lois Landgraf aided the process by asking good questions of those who came to testify.

Sanctity of Life Sunday 2017

It was gray and cold; the weather seemed appropriate to the event at hand. It was Sanctity of Life Sunday, January 15th, 2017, and we were remembering the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade ruling on that winter day forty-four years ago when that coldest of practices, abortion, became the law of the land. The death toll recently passed 58 million. We mourned their loss on Sunday, but we didn’t linger in the gray mood. In fact, the dominant feeling of the day was hope.

Our group of pro-life warriors represented at least three generations, our youngest participant having barely reached her 23rd birthday and our oldest in her 80s. We shared hot cocoa, home-baked cookies, and our stories of hope.

Euthanized With at Least 10 Years to Live

In another example of the twisted thinking of those who adhere to the culture of death, a man from the UK went to Switzerland for suicide by doctor (now legalized in Colorado as well) and the media reported it as a “brave” act, especially for his wife since she “risked prosecution in Britain to help her husband end his life.”

You see, from the perspective of the culture of death, it is “a brave act of love” when a wife helps her husband kill himself.

Looking Toward 2017

The new year is bringing with it new realities for the pro-life movement in the Pikes Peak region.

Nationally, the election of a Republican president with a Republican-controlled United States Congress (both houses) promises to lean the federal government perspective on life issues more towards the pro-life outlook than was present with the federal administration that is about to end.

Tire Change Saves Baby?

A few weeks ago, a couple of young women were driving down Centennial when they pulled to the side of the road due to a flat tire.

Their protracted attempt to change the tire drew the notice of one of the prayer volunteers standing on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood.
