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