May those who hold life as trivial realize that we live because God wills it so.


Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, in His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. (Job 12:9-10)

(CNN) — Overriding a veto by Arkansas’ Democratic governor, the state’s Republican-controlled House and Senate approved a bill to ban abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy — the most restrictive such law in the country.

Gov. Mike Beebe, a Democrat, vetoed the bill Monday, saying it “blatantly contradicts the United States Constitution, as interpreted by the Supreme Court.”

But on Wednesday, the Arkansas House voted 56-33 to override the veto, following a 20-14 override vote a day earlier in the state Senate.

The Center for Reproductive Rights and the ACLU of Arkansas promised to mount a legal challenge in federal court, while supporters said they were prepared to fight back.

“We intend to make it … clear that no one’s constitutional rights are subject to revision by lawmakers intent on scoring political points, and that attempts such as this to turn back the clock on reproductive…

LITTLE ROCK, Ark (Reuters) – Abortion rights groups say they plan to challenge a new Arkansas law adopted on Wednesday that will prohibit most abortions after about 12 weeks of pregnancy and is the most restrictive abortion law in the United States.

The measure, which lawmakers approved over Democratic Governor Mike Beebe’s veto, prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected by a standard ultrasound.

Legal scholars say the law violates the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalizedabortion until a fetus could viably survive outside the womb. A fetus is generally considered viable at 22 to 24 weeks.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas, the national ACLU and the New York-based Center for…

DEFINE “Alive”

Define Alive…? SIMPLE. Alive is having LIFE… and Life is the absence of death. You cannot measure it, you cannot score it. It will not fit in a scale or a spreadsheet, nor can it be measured by a “term or a breath.” Life, is simply the absence of death.
So many arguments are had over the topic of abortion. Many of these arguments end at the point of the dreaded funnel of questions that brings one to answer the ultimate question of, “When does life begin?”

I recently read an article on a pro-life website that was titled… “Why not love them both?” I agree. I think instead of analyzing brain function, pain receptors, and first breaths or heartbeats, why not respond to the question of when life begins with “Why Not Love Them Both??” It seems an apporpriate response to me. Think about it.

When you don’t understand something, of course it is harder to make an informed decision. I would like to outline some sound information for you below that you may use or give to someone who may be thinking of having an abortion. I never understood the entire process of an abortion, and always thought… well it must just be some “magical” pill that allows a woman to forget she was ever pregnant. That is not the case.

According the Planned Parenthood website, they offer several types of abortions. Depending on how far a woman is in her gestation, they may end a pregnancy a number of different ways. Planned Parenthood classified them on their website to include “The Abortion Pill,” and “In-clinic Abortions.” I will go into more detail in my next blog about In-clinic Abortions (which will be VERY eye-opening), but for now I would like to give you some information on “the pill.”

The Abortion Pill (another term for the medication- Mifepristone) is a pill, which can be taken all the way up to 63 days (9 weeks) after a woman’s last period. By 9 weeks your baby is starting to look less like a lima bean and more like a person. Nerves are forming to be capable of sending messages to the brain. Little fingers and toes have formed, and it is possible to hear that little heartbeat on a monitor. After 9 weeks pregnancy, a woman might be referred to the process of having an in-clinic abortion. The medication abortion is a two-step process and some women do not realize they must visit the abortion clinic twice to receive the necessary medications to remove the baby from their body.

This abortion pill blocks any action of progesterone from sustaining a pregnancy. Progesterone is necessary to a woman’s body in order to maintain a healthy pregnancy. If you were to take such a pill, the uterus would change/break down, the cervix softens and opens, and the baby is detached from the mother internally. The abortion pill is then combined with a medication called Misoprostol (at your second visit). This medication takes the baby and the other uterine contents and “dumps” them. Heavy cramps and heavy bleeding combine with large blood clots and large “globs” of tissue may be difficult to expel. What most women do not realize is that this process may take up to days or weeks to stop the bleeding. Many women also experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, pain, fever, dizziness, or other side effects.

As mentioned above, the “pill” abortion is available up to 9 weeks into your pregnancy. At 9 weeks pregnant, your baby looks like THIS:


That sweet child inside isn’t expecting to be flushed away and disposed of. This little baby is warm, comfortable, and trusting it’s mother to keep it safe and is utterly innocent. A mother’s body is naturally responsible for supporting her child and enduring whatever she must to keep her child safe and secure. Please think twice before ever going against that natural instinct to protect and love your child, no matter the circumstances. If that means giving birth and placing your child up for adoption, where he or she might find a loving family to care for them, then please do it!
