What is ABORTION?
Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary:
a-'bôr-shan \ n (1547) 1: the expulsion of a nonviable fetus as a) : spontaneous expulsion of a human fetus during the first 12 weeks of gestation - compare MISCARRIAGE b) : induced abortion 2 : MONSTROSITY 3 a) : arrest of development (as of a part or process) resulting in imperfection b) : a result of such arrest
Here... you quickly discover definitions vary depending on the source... usually aligning themselves with one of 2 or 3 camps. PRO-ABORTION... ANTI-ABORTION... and some vague place in between. Wikipedia’s: Definitions of abortion
Visit Dr. William Lile board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and former OB/GYN Department Chair at Sacred Heart Hospital. Educate yourself on the meaning of early and late-term abortions.
So to deconstruct and take apart the word - ab... bor... tion, we have:
ab = away from
bor = old Latin, orir... to rise, be born
tion = to indicate action, condition, result or effect
ABORTION is: the action of... moving away from... being born, giving birth and/ or rising
So if the action of... moving away from... being born, giving birth and/ or rising, then is there any question as to the direction the action is toward? If ABORTION is not toward life, then it is toward death. Right? I mean, ABORTION is a life or death matter being made, right?
So if one is moving away from life, then that one is moving toward death... and not really toward death; because if life isn’t present, then what is present is: death.
Abortion in the Church:
This can be best understood when reading Galatians 1:7, where Paul talks about the decision made by some who preach another gospel... which is not another. But he says they want to trouble you... to agitate and stir up things... as they pervert the good news.
Since perverts of the gospel... are those who decide and promote movement away from the life-giving words clearly stated in the scriptures, their abortive news (which ain’t the good news... even though it is what is being peddled too often now days) their abortive news can be seen in those gatherings... where the name of the Lord Jesus isn’t even mentioned any more (because their clerical “leadership” doesn’t want to offend anybody – whatever that means?!) ... and so this arrest of development, this abortion of the congregation happens by not declaring the scriptures. And it only produces a faithless, dead generation of pew-warming drop-outs from the world - including the church world. As spiritual blindness is potentially dangerous; spiritual ABORTION may be the most deadly.
Abortion in Education (both public and private):
The aftermath of not only redefining truth, but also following a century of embracing lots of monkey business and scientific hocus-pocus (which, by the way... is the new baseline for 21st century modernity); this outcome has inconclusive results... extrapolated from the actions exhibited by the 7,000 high school students dropping out of public schools on a daily basis - according to government generated advertisements.
Though some in society are shocked speechless at this tremendous drop-out rate (they call it a “problem”); others might be impressed with the high demonstration of "critical thinking" being exhibited daily... by those 7,000 more students preferring to hit the pavement, rather than hit the watered-down books taught by the bland and boring.
After all, kids know quality... and they just might be voting with their feet... about the lack of education they are receiving. In this case, their action is not of embracing, but rather of aborting... (as in an arrest of development; to terminate prematurely) their education. Yet these 7,000 have made a definite movement away from indoctrinations; and politically correct agendas; and social engineering and experimentation being worked on them and other unsuspecting young adults... by the far superior (albeit... tyrannical) minority of educational elitists.
Having been a very successful academic counselor for years, I know firsthand what it took. For years, I’ve heard from endless numbers of wonderful, respectful kids... as they confided in me the assessment of their crappy education.

The number of ABORTIONS in United States
FACTS ABOUT ABORTION www.abort73.com: the systematic dehumanizing of people with one of many intended consequences: discreet promotion of pedophilia. ABORT73 includes not only several frank discussions on late term abortion procedures, but also graphic pictures featuring pregnancy at weeks 5, 6 and 7.
BABY NUMBER FIFTY-ONE, By Synthia Esther.
Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts. She describes how the heads of unborn babies killed in abortions command top dollar.
Meet GIANNA JESSEN - born April 6, 1977, Gianna is a survivor of a failed saline abortion attempt. Gianna's medical records indicate she was born during a failed saline abortion on a 17-year-old girl during the 30th week of pregnancy; Gianna's birth certificate is signed by the doctor who was performing the abortion.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), since 1973, an estimated 54 million legally induced abortions have been performed in the United States. If this ABORTION total appears staggering, then that would be correct. 54 million ABORTIONS would be as if everyone living in the following states no longer existed:
Louisiana - 4,533,372
Kentucky - 4,339,367
Oregon - 3,831,074
Oklahoma - 3,751,351
Connecticut - 3,574,097
Iowa - 3,046,355
Mississippi - 2,967,297
Arkansas - 2,915,918
Kansas - 2,853,118
Utah - 2,763,885
Nevada - 2,700,551
New Mexico - 2,059,179
West Virginia - 1,852,994
Nebraska - 1,826,341
Idaho - 1,567,582
Hawaii - 1,360,301
Maine - 1,328,361
New Hampshire - 1,316,470
Rhode Island - 1,052,567
You know every day... we citizens are reminded what we can and cannot do with our lives. And by the way, do I own my life? I don't know... because I don't remember buying it; I definitely was given life... but do I own it? or am I just renting?
We can definitely say, ABORTION is a right (whether or not... it is right?!) And ABORTION is definitely a women’s issue.
Here is a link to the website of Norma McCorvey who is better known by the legal pseudonym "Jane Roe". She was the plaintiff in the landmark... American lawsuit: Roe v. Wade (in 1973):
Norma McCorvey - It is an understatement to say that McCorvey's opinion on ABORTION has “changed substantially.” Norma is now active in pro-life causes... opposing ABORTION.
With 54,000,000 ABORTIONS... (which averages: 3,288 surgical abortions... daily), that is NO small business. And with businesses, comes strategic planning, and family planning, and planned parenting, and of course... all the salesmen, and now days, saleswomen, too... in search of getting their hands in our pockets and on $$$$$! You know it’s sometimes hard to tell the difference between salesmen and thieves, isn’t it?
With 54,000,000 ABORTIONS there has to be a monetary component to this reality, don't you think? You know, money is usually at the root of most things... including things like this, isn’t it?
So ABORTION is not only a women’s issue, but also a money issue.
Speaking of the business of ABORTION, here is a link to: Blood Money – the Business of Abortion... narrated by Dr. Alveda King (the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)
And with business - at least a good business... comes LOCATION! Right?
You know, most of those community service providing clinics are conveniently placed in the inner-cities... you know among those with a disproportionate number of aborted babies being African American. Hmm?! What’s that all about? Margaret Sanger opened the first Planned Parenthood clinic in the U.S.; and in the finest effort to re-write history, family names associated with the organization seem to disappear... depending on the way the political wind is blowing... because the truth is not in them - those who never have been; and probably never will be truthful. But let us continue.
So ABORTION is not only a women’s issue, and a money issue, but.. is it a racial issue, too?
A simple word search on: ABORTION and race... is revealing. Check out these websites:
Students for LIFE - a study on racism
And speaking of racism and a champion in his own right, here is an inspiring quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in his Letter from a Birmingham Jail... “The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be... The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.”
Well Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be proud to know he inspired Lila Rose (a graduate from UCLA) who has become one of those creative extremists; an activist for growing up in a country which respects the rights of all... especially the least and littlest living in America.
To learn more about this young, "creative extremist", check out CNN’s “Right on the Edge” Documentary Segment on
Lila Rose - founder of Live Action.
MOST of the media outlets (or news toilets?) in America have ignored this high profile case. Thankfully, not all have. Here's a recent, high profile ABORTION court case... of not only aborted unborns, but also murdered babies who came to term and who were birthed – Criminal Trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell - the actual Grand Jury Report
Google: Gosnell trial

Whether you are PRO-ABORTION... or ANTI-ABORTION... you should check out the following images of those little lively entities... moving toward birth and rising... when suddenly aborted.
You know, DOGS and CATS apparently have more rights than the voiceless aborted millions. BUT check out the pictures anyway. Sometimes a picture speaks 1,000 words... AND WE ALL KNOW... (with a silently complicit MEDIA)... these pictures may utter a word or two on behalf of those little ones with no voice - silenced by the 3,000s... daily.
If... in your thinking you are PRO-CHOICE to have an ABORTION, then thank you for reading the commentary and visiting interesting links created mostly by women.
If... you still have a heart toward the Lord GOD who says He is the God of the living... then hopefully you will read on a little further... and consider these 3 very different verses (voiced by 3 very different individuals over the span of 1000 years):
circa 1000 bc –
Psalm 139:13-14 – The Songwriter (who had several wives and enjoyed sporting with each of them) he wrote, O Lord... You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.
circa 500 bc –
Jeremiah 1:5 – The Lord GOD (our Creator) said, Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you
circa 33 ad –
John 10:10 – Jesus said, The thief comes with the sole intention of stealing and killing and destroying;
but I came to bring them life, and far more life than before
from the Wycliffe Bible - 1300s:
Psalm 66:5... Come ye and see ye the works of God; fearedful (awesome) in counsels toward the sons of men.
GOD of Wonders...
GOD of Wonders - Exploring the Wonders of Creation! "Declare His glory...His wonders among all peoples." Psalm 96:3
MASS energy wears out... but GOD our Lord is forever!
