Supreme Court Further Erodes Position of Children

As reported by Breitbart, the American College of Pediatricians has concluded that the Supreme Court decision legalizing “same-sex marriage will have a significantly negative impact on children in the United States.”

The Court is continuing to erode the position of children in our society, a process that was strongly pressed with the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions in 1973. These decisions essentially held children to be property that could be kept or disposed of according to the desires of the parents.

Exciting News

b2ap3_thumbnail_Genetica_shutterstock-300x222.jpgIn spite of much effort, we (Pikes Peak Citizens for Life) have not been able to establish any relationship with the Black Community.  It looks like this is changing.  Recently, we have met with two Black Pastors from two different churches.  They are enthused about our presentations especially the one on the “Sanctity of Life”.  The work and dedication these two men have for their people is inspiring.  However, even more so is their LOVE!

What they are doing can only be done through love. The last time I felt this way was when I read Mother Teresa’s book, “My Life for the Poor”.  Please pray this relationship with the Black community bears much fruit.

Courage

b2ap3_thumbnail_Fetus-1-290x250.jpg“If you are a Christian & Conservative, transfer to another field.”  This is what a junior college student at the University of North Carolina – Wilmington, majoring in Social Studies, was told.  You ask, by whom??  While not directly from one of the professors, it was attributed to him by students who supported such a view.  This would be intimidating to most young people but she was not!  To the contrary, she wrote a 6 page paper, followed by a 5 minute presentation to her class of 35 students.  Her paper was in support of U. S. House Bill, HR 36, and The Pain-capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  “This act seeks to terminate the legalization of abortion after the fetus is 20 weeks old…  The basis for this legislation rests on the evidence that a fetus is capable of feeling pain (as it is dismembered in the womb, one arm, one leg at a time) when it is 20 weeks old due to the scientifically proven development of pain receptors.”  (Policy analysis paper by “Anonymous”)

Colorado Legislators Ignore Science

b2ap3_thumbnail_Flag_of_Colorado.svg-300x200.pngAbortion supporters often reject pro-life legislation by calling it religiously motivated and hence superstitious and contrary to reality. They declare that religion should not be imposed on people.

However, pro-life reasoning is supported by medical science which concludes that the baby/fetus in the womb is truly a human child from the moment of conception/fertilization. The fact that many religions accept the conclusions of verifiable scientific determinations simply testifies to the fact that they are in accord with the truth/reality.
