Personhood to be decided by Mississippi voters

(Editor's Note: This is very rare for me to post the same thing on my blog from at the same time, but this is so incredibly important.)

God created life. He gives life. Then who are we to take the life of the unborn? Extraordinary that the Supreme Court also decided that when it upheld the law passed by the 107th Congress during the Bush administration concerning partial birth abortion. Some of the key factors the lawmakers determined was that the unborn fetus “feels pain; that it undermines public perception of the appropriate role of a physician; and it perverts the process in which life is brought into this world.” That is from paragraph K.

The Mississippi Supreme Court decided in favor of letting the people decide to give the unborn the same rights as the newborn. Since truly the right to decide that is in God's hands, perhaps the people of Mississippi will pray for God's hand in this decision. Regardless, it is momentous at worst, and Roe v. Wade shattering at best.

Congress also found, as stated in paragraph I, that the fetus is killed outside the womb and that gives the fetus an autonomy which separates it from the right of women to choose treatments of her own body. This is superior and intelligent Congressional thinking. In paragraph J, Congress states that the partial-birth abortion confuses the medical, legal and ethical duties of physicians who are sworn to preserve and promote life. And this is why I find it so hard to understand why physicians would perform any type of abortions.
Congress calls this a process of "gruesome and inhumane nature", and it has "disturbing similarity to the killing of a newborn infant", and that the prohibition of partial-birth abortion is the only way to counter that disregard for human life.

The Supreme Court upheld the law, so partial birth abortion became illegal.
When Scott Peterson was convicted on two counts of murder, Laci Peterson was pregnant with their unborn child. That establishes the unborn as a living human with the right to live. It established a precedent. He was sentenced to death by Judge Alfred Delucchi in March of 2005.

When reading the law concerning partial birth abortion, one can’t help but understand this aptly applies to life from conception; and paragraph N tells us precisely why we should care so much about this kind of murder.

 (N) Implicitly approving such a brutal and inhumane procedure by choosing not to prohibit it will further coarsen society to the humanity of not only newborns, but all vulnerable and innocent human life, making it increasingly difficult to protect such life. Thus Congress has a compelling interest in acting --indeed it must act--to prohibit this inhumane procedure."

Please pray for Mississippi voters from now until the election. Please help us to define Personhood from the instant of conception.

The term personhood actually appeared more than 100 years ago in the Dred Scott v Sanford Supreme Court when African Americans were stripped of their personhood being touted as merely a fraction of a human being. Shocking for us to consider today because the Dred Scott case was never overturned, but there are no slaves now.

Dr. Dianne Irving states, "If you use the wrong science [or] words, it not only leads to a mis-definition of who is a person, it also leads to malformed consciences," Irving told an audience of pro-life youths and adults, while noting that science is on their side. "We need to get the language straight so our consciences can be well formed."

For Christians, the God’s word tells us exactly when life begins. God told Jeremiah, “"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."

While it may seem arrogant to vote on something that God has already decreed, we are autonomous concerning the laws of the land, therefore let us realign our law with God’s. We can only be blessed even more in doing so.
