Victoria: "Abortion is an expression of a woman's inalienable right to protect her psychological and physical well being."
And what of the Mental and Physical well being of the the father. A friend of mine, newly wed, ready and wanting to become a father. His wife evidently not ready to become a mother, had an abortion. It devastated him, both losing his child and yes it was his CHILD and losing the woman he loved. He divorced the B**CH (my word, not his) the day after it happened. Did you "Quigly Down Under"? I would have put her on a boat too if I could have.
Where are the man's rights to his reproductive organs? Where is my choice? If I get a woman pregnant, I have to pay child support or I go to jail, I can't ask for an abortion if I don't want a child. Or as in case above, I can't stop one either. OH that's right, I am a man, I am the subjugator of women and I deserve every nasty thing that comes my way, AND I am white so I need to pay for it as well.
Victoria, you speak as if the baby got into the woman's body without her consent. Every woman knows what actions result in the creation of a baby and participating in them is a tacit consent. I understand the hard cases of rape and incest and as an incest survivor, I can tell you that knowing that I had killed another human would only have compounded my pain and the shame which is inherent in incest (you always blame yourself). The crime of the rapist should not result in the death of an innocent person either. If you are experiencing guilt, there is a cure for that forgiveness is freely given at the cross. A person's a person no matter how small, each of us is diminished by the callous disregard for the humanity of those who are weaker or without the status we enjoy. Unborn babies are not untouchables, they are fully human and worth life, dignity and protection.
You people make me sick with this sensationalized b.s. You take the president's words out of context and apply them to extreme cases. 32 weeks? That's well beyond the point of viability. These are extreme situations you present in this stup...id youtube that few would enter into. Most abortions (89%) occur during the first twelve weeks. Abortion is an expression of a woman's inalienable right to protect her psychological and physical well being. No entity has the fundamental right to develop inside another if it is to that person's detriment. PERIOD.
Why? I can't believe that Doctors, who are human beings, have such callous disregard for human life. They take an oath...FIRST DO NO HARM.....I am so against abortion! I am one of the unlucky ones who never was able to conceive...This absolutely horrifies me
forcing myself to watch this makes me so sick. But I owe it to all those innocent babies who have barely anyone fighting for them, and those who are fighting for them are getting nowhere, all the while they are dying brutal, tortuous deaths every second of every day. It infuriates me; wish there were a stronger word than infuriates, because that just doesn't describe it for me!
I met Gianna who was born alive after a failed abortion, she lived and is an amazing young lady, working hard to get the truth out. For Leanne, please, Get the book "Supernatural Childbirth" by Jackie Mize. It can change your life. If you are a christian, God has promised in His word, there shall be none barren among us. Read Genesis 3, you will see the curse came on women there, but in Galatians 3, Jesus sets us free from the curse. Exodus 23:25-26 tells God's people that we shall not be barren. My husband and I have prayed for about a dozen couples who were barren and supernaturally ALL of them have children now. There is hope in Jesus! Look to Him and to His word. Don't be angry at Him. I also lost a daughter when she was a month old. It's heartbreaking, but the Lord has given me a son to replace the joy that was gone. He will do the same for you if you reach out, read that book and believe. I get the books at half.com and give them to girls who are struggling. :)
You are one hard case. I really didn't think it was possible for ANYONE to still be "pro-choice" after seeing this video. Other than film footage of what the Allies discovered when they liberated the Nazis' death camps, I have never seen anything so wrenching, so horrifying, so utterly heartbreaking.
Ok this really tears me apart inside. I understand that there are certain times when abortion is needed but if the baby comes out alive doctors should treat it as if it was a full term baby....it deserves a chance to live even if the mother doesnt want the child someone out there does. I have a 2 yo. and i will admit when i first got pregnant i thought about it for a mere 2 mins and decided i wouldnt be able to live with myself if i did that to him...he is the joy of my life and he puts a smile on my face every day.
"Do you even know WHY women choose abortion?" "Or care?"
Jas, It's quite simple...
Women choose abortion, because they wanted to have SEX and didn't want a BABY. There are definitely horrid cases in which little girls are raped etc., however, I suggest you do a little studying up on how many abortions are preformed because of these circumstances. I believe it's somewhere around 1%.
"The only people I know who were taught abstinence became pregnant as soon as they started dating and lacked the knowledge of how to prevent a pregnancy"
These people you speak of were taught abstinence, but not the reason why to abstain from sex? They weren't taught that having sex can result in pregnancy? Hard to believe. Finally , considering you know NO ONE that was taught abstinence, and abstained...
Allow me to introduce myself, Jas. A married, 25 year old woman, who was very aware of the possible outcome of sex, and as a result, I ABSTAINED from having sex until I was married!
Making abortion illegal will not end abortion. Desperate women will simply turn to back-street abortionists and be butchered by them. Perhaps some of you think that is what women who have abortions deserve. The only way to reduce abortion is to educate people about birth control. The fact that so many anti-abortionists seem to be against contraception as well is simply absurd. Abstinence is impractical. The only people I know who were taught abstinence became pregnant as soon as they started dating and lacked the knowledge of how to prevent a pregnancy. And why do so few anti-abortionists seem to acknowledge the huge problems facing foster care and adoption agencies. There are so many children who are unwanted and up for adoption. Are you willing to adopt them? What if they have severe disabilities and emotional problems? A history of drugs and/or sexual abuse. Do you value their lives as much as a fetus'? Do you even know WHY women choose abortion? Or care?
Wow. This was an amazing video. It didn't change my views, as I have always been staunchly pro-life, but it did make me wonder how we could expose more people to this horrible truth, so that at least when they decided to abort, they knew exactly what they were doing.
I 100% Agree that abortion is WRONG!If you don't want kids do something to prevent getting preganant.If you get preganant don't kill the baby its not their fault.Give them life,Babies are MIRACLES not mistakes.There is a family that will abopt them and love them as there own child.
I am against abortions too - now. I regret to this very day my decision to have an abortion over 20 years ago. I was young and naive and I was lied to by the people at the abortion clinic - "It's just a piece of tissue." Also, the father of the baby didn't want to have any children. Some girls are forced to have an abortion by their parents, the guy or someone else. They are lied to about the true nature of abortion. I grieve for the young women who choose abortion now and shared the truth for many years through the CPC I volunteered at. If you want woman to choose life, then help get the truth about abortion out there to the public in a loving and caring manner. Pictures of aborted fetuses on posters and screaming at these women will only scare them off from hearing the truth.
Iam soooo against abortions.... I myself have been trying for kids for over 5 years and am so desprate to have a child.
I have suffered a few miscarriages and a stillbirth and i cant live with the fact that God took away my babies... that is why i don't understand how women who choose to kill their babies can live with themselves.
It makes me cry and hurt to see that there are women killing their babies, why kill an innocent life when it is your mistake for making this baby in the first place.
Sadly, I meet about thirty women a week who don't regret their abortions. I'll never forget Marian. She was having her 8th abortion. There is very little support in the Bible for the myth that women regret the sin of abortion. Aborting moms know it is evil to murder their infants but they do it anyway. Sinners love themselves more than their babies. They worship themselves, the creature, rather than the Creator. (Read Romans 1:18-32) If a person comes to faith in Christ & is genuinely born again, she absolutely mourns over her sin. But the scriptures teach us that sinners sin because they find pleasure in it. Although they should have a pang of conscience, that does not keep them from wanting to do it again, and again, and again.
I am currently reading a book (only about halfway through it) by Deborah Donathan "Candy Apple Love" and I highly recommend it.
I am so sad that people believe this is OK. That a life is worth so little. I have not met a woman who has had an abortion that does not regret it.
I am not sure of the statistics any longer but a few years ago there where twice as many people who wanted to adoopt as there were abortions so please don't try to tell me no one wants these babies.
And they are babies not a fetus, have you ever seen a picture of a baby at 13 weeks gestation ? They are a fully formed baby even if they can't breath on thier own they have a heart beat by 4-5 weeks after conception.
If we want to make something legal how about the morning after pill, that takes affect before there is time for the egg to be fertilized.
I am agenst aborition, because what your doing to a child is stopping its beating heart. Its almost like your murdring your child. If you abortited a living child, you should be ashamed. Some people have been trying their whole life to have a child, and some people are lucky enough to get a child, but you choose to kill it! " Abortion stops a beating heart" If you cant afford a child, or something is wrong, dont abort it, put it up for adoption. How do you sleep at night. You always would have that thought in you head that you killed and innocent little child! Its so sad that people even think of aborting a child. My cousin tried to have a child for 4 years, in the fifth year, they got a child, but it was austic. They got what they wanted and they love their little noah. Just think of all the oppourtunites you will miss out if you abort a child. You wont be able to name it, dree it, see it run to the bus on the first day of school. You wont see them get older, get their first boyfriend
get married, and then have kids. Dont abort your child, believe me, you will regret your choice sooner or later
The hardness of our culture astonishes and horrifies me...but then that is the spirit of the age. May God strip away our insulation and deception that causes us not to see this as He does. The shedding of innocent blood is wrong.
why was Obama brougt into this video? These women made their choices like so many of you pro-choicers want but when something goes wrong blame it on someone else.
Destroying human life inside the womb or outside the womb, at nine weeks, 19 weeks, 9 days, 9 years or 90 years, it is ALLl murder. And we should be ashamed to live in a society that permits it.
Watching this made me sick...I have been trying for 5 years to have a child, here these women can get pregnant and kill their unborn babies! Something is so wrong with this! Why not have the child and give him or her up for adoption to couples like my husband and myself who spend each day wishing and hoping for a family! You should be ashamed how can you sleep at night knowing you killed someone.
A human fetus is a human life, whether premature or fully viable. We have people spending time and money to try to help beached whales but we cannot identify the fact that purposefully ending the life of the most helpless of our own species is murder, and it is okay to leave one of our little ones naked and cold to die alone on a back table.
I'm sorry. But making abortion illegal, as horrifying as abortion is, is the wrong thing.
Look at what Prohibition did. It took something as simple as enjoying a beer after work and made it illegal, turning it into something that people lost their lives over!
You pro-life people call the pro-choicers ignorant and uncaring. But you have to realize, just because something is illegal, doesn't mean people don't do it.... Read More
Look at all the people who die of drug overdose, because they are afraid to seek medical help because of the repercussions of doing so. I'm not saying that drug use is correct, but people use them.
Making abortions illegal will NOT stop them. They will be performed on the black market, where horrible men will be making lots of money off them, where they will be performed by someone untrained, and with unclean utensils. Not only will the life of the baby be lost, but extreme harm will most likely become of the mother as well.
You pro-lifers are all so worried about pushing your beliefs on the populace, that you don't see the big picture. Making abortions illegal will cause more problems than they are now. Many abortion clinics are not filled with the soulless Godless people pro-lifers make them sound to be. For example, that video. That was ONE clinic, where they did ... Read Morenot call. It does not mean every clinic is like that. Many people go into clinics expecting to have an abortion, but due to the counseling that is offered at MANY of them, they either decide to keep the baby, or keep it and place it in a home with someone who cannot have a baby, that wants to start a family.
I mean not to offend, but religion has always glorified one side of the story to push it's belief and exert control among people. If abortion is legalized, I would like to see a video, saying "Look at what we have accomplished!" Filled with the pictures of dead fetuses found in dumpsters, with their mothers bodies placed besid
All you pro-choicers who are horrified by this video...WAKE UP!!! The Womb is not some sort of nebulous autonomous entity, where all laws of morality and decency may be suspended without consequence. If it is wrong to abuse a child sitting in a baby stroller, do you not think it is wrong to abuse one sitting in the Womb? Pouring caustic chemicals over a darling 6-month-old baby would doubtless bring outrage from the depths of your soul. Yet you feel so smug that you are "pro-choice"... A healthy, wiggling, kicking baby -- whether born or still in the womb -- is a gift of life. Don't be asinine and think you can applaud "choice" (i.e. slaughter of an unborn baby) and at the same time demand that a baby who survives the attempted murder must be saved at all costs.
I have sat here after watching this video in horror. How could the physcians and nurses go to bed at night and sleep?! I feel Obama has a deaf ear when it comes to moral decisions of this magnitude. God will have to do a great work in Obama to change his mind and heart. I pray for this daily!
This video is the most amazing thing I have seen in a long time. Anyone who watches it, please send it to as many people as you can. It on ly takes a few seconds to copy and paste the URL into an e-mail, and those few seconds could save a life.
I believe in choice, but I believe the choice is "Whether or not to have sex?" Once you have made the decision to have sex, you agree to live with all the consequences that go with it...including raising a child. You have signed on the dotted line! Abortion should not be an option. This country wants sex without consequences...not happening. That is why God says to save it for marriage...two loving people raising children together. Isn't that the best scenario?
Thank you for this profound video. You did an excellent job and I hope it changes many hearts for the good. Bless you!
Also B.O. will add VERY LIBERAL judges to the Supreme Court and there goes any chance to save lives. God gave us free will and "choice" but we often "choose" the wrong thing to do. Would Jesus choose to abort you?
Martha says it all and defends B.O. very well. B.O. knows the law was already on the books AS HE IS A LAWYER FIRST. He still voted to keep it THE SAME. Let them die as the doctor and mother already wanted the baby "killed". Martha thinks she knows and is sure that there have been a lot more abortion performed under the "Bush regime" just for economic reasons alone. Stated just like a liberal. I do not understand why these babies could not have been adopted by a loving family. There are plenty families looking to adopt. The true facts are that abortions dropped lower under the "Bush regime". Now under the B.O. regime there will be even more choices to kill babies and the tax payers will be paying for it now also. B.O. also will allow stem cell research on aborted babies. B.O. is so liberal that he will stop at "NOTHING". How could Martha believe that bringing programs, jobs, and a better economy will stop abortion. My neighbors keep the baby and collect assistance; get the picture?
Thank all of you for your comment, especially those of you who are supportive.
Sadly, Rowan's death took place after the BAIPA was passed. The bill has no teeth. But there is exactly zero chance of putting teeth to it under an Obama administration, because he will continue to obfuscate and hide the reality of post-abortion infanticide.
But that doesn't mean we can't hold his feet to the fire for it and use his tenure in the White House to expose the problem and demand solutions.
ok first off i am pro choice for limited abortions, meaning before 24 weeks because after that the fetus is viable and can live outside the mother's body on its own. however, i do feel that if during an abortion the fetus is born alive, it should be allowed to live. the acts that these doctors in this video did are horrific. HOWEVER it is ridiculous to take obamas words out of context and imply that he was condoning this type of practice. he supports women's rights to choose, which DOES NOT make him a heartless man. he supports privacy between a women and her physician, and he cannot be blamed because a few individuals took it upon themselves to commit a horrible act against a born alive fetus.
I believe that abortions should be illegal except for extream circumstances. I think it is murder in any aspect it is a life from conception. If the women do not want children they should keep their legs closed. Sex is not something to play with in any form and alot of women and teenagers today dont take responsibility for their actions. I have seen it time and time again. If you dont want your baby put it up for adoption. There are plenty of reponsible loving people out there that can not have children that want them.
That was heart-wrenching!!! Thank you very much for such a profound video!
Please put this most profound of anything I have ever seen, on air, nationally, on MONDAY Obama really lied here.
Martha, you make me sick. I am pro choice and this is unacceptible in everyway shape and form. I believe you should have a choice but if your baby is born alive you should have to do everything to save it. I really don't think you should have an abortion after the first trimester unless your life is in danger or there is something really going wrong. Obama, is a heartless man if you can call him a man. You are just as heartless is you agree with Obama and see nothing wrong with killing a baby that is born alive. And as I said I don't think an abortion should be done unless your life is in danger or something is really going wrong and it should not be done after first trimester and never for birth control.
please go to this site and watch the video 99 Ballons/Eliot's video
Yes YouTube this!!!
Thank you for posting this. We are called to expose the dark and fruitless work of abortion. There are 1.5 million abortions in America every year27 million since the Supreme Court overturned the public conscience of 48 states 19 years ago. By the eighth week the heart of the baby has been beating for a month, there are measurable brain waves, there is response to touch, there's thumb-sucking, grasping with the hands, swimming with the arms in the amniotic fluid, distinct arms and legs and sexual organs. This much mustnot may, mustbe present before most abortion centers will cut the baby to pieces with a suction machine 4,000 times a day. 9,000 babies were killed after the 21st week of pregnancy in 1987, fully formed and on the brink of being able to breathe for themselveskilled, legally! Are the Unborn Human Beings? They have been conceived by two human beings, genetically they are HUMAN!
Thank you for posting this...hopefully it will help those who still try to justify abortion by saying that keeping it legal helps keep women from getting 'back alley' abortions...here are perfect examples of qualified hospitals and doctors BOTCHING abortions.
While i am not a 'direct' abortion survivor, i know for a fact that if abortion were legal the year i was born that my mother would have had one...she told me so...not ALL women with an unwanted pregnancy would go to a 'back alley' to have an abortion if it were to stop being legal. Illegal abortions are the reason i am alive..and i am sure i am not alone. Kudos to you for putting this video together. I agree that it need to go on Youtube without question. I have already sent this to some friends who think Obama is the Messiah. If we can change the minds of his supporters the world will be a better place. God help us all.
Having an abortion doesn't make you un-pregnant. It makes you the mother of a dead baby.
There is no getting around what he said. You can twist it all you want and regurgitate Obama's talking points all you want... the fact remains he never once said simply: "There is already a law on the books, this bill is redundant." No instead he chose to espouse how dreadful it would be for a medical doctor who takes a Hippocratic Oath to SAVE A LIFE of a child he and the child's mother were trying to kill.
Martha: Mr. Obama could not be more mistaken - nor could you.
As a physician, I see every day how people play fast and loose with poorly worded laws and regulations. This is how the practice of medicine in Hitler's Germany became so barbaric.
Those that are pro-abortion talk on and on about choice, but when a woman changes her mind, HER CHOICE, they won't help her, but actually help the baby die! That's not choice, that's Auschwitz!
Martha, I notice you didn't seem to mind the horrific state of the dead people in the pictures. Just wondering if you have ever experienced love before your commitment to this spineless, unamerican for a candidate you so religiously support. Oh, sorry I think I said you might be religious about something, my appology! Gee, does anyone know where it says HE WILL VOMIT YOU FROM HIS MOUTH? This is what my stomach feels like after reading your supportive comment. This is what a form of love feels like, it is called pitty.
Check out the statistics: Under a pro-abortion president, abortion rates rose. Under a pro-life president (Bush), they declined. It's that simple.
Obama is rabidly pro-abortion. He has never once vted in favor of life, period. Do the research yourself! And then go online and view the faces of the unborn children who were torn apart during an abortion. I challenge you to view the pictures. Is abortion only a word? Look at it. Learn what really happens and them make up your mind. Try the website of The Center for Bioethical Reform. Do it now and then reexamine Obama's support for abortion.
Without Life, what is the economy, jobs, health care, ect. ? What "choice" has the child been given? Choose adoption, not death!
Martha: Obama has already been caught in this lie. Obama claimed that he would never vote to withhold protection from an infant. However, records from the Illinois State Senate show that he did exactly that-not once but four times. He also said that at the time a law similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act was already on the books. Also false. According to Jill Stanek, the pro-life nurse who blew the whistle on this neglect, there was no such thing as across-the-board protection for infants who survive an abortion. Instead, the law protected only those "survivors their abortionist deems fit to live."
What's more, Obama said that he is "completely supportive of a ban on late-term abortions, partial-birth or otherwise, as long as there's an exception for the mother's health." That statement ignores the fact that the Supreme Court has defined "health" in the abortion context to include such factors as "psychological" and "financial" well-being, that is, just about anything.
This is a great video - it should be on youtube. All of the facts here are verifiable - thanks for the accuracy.
Barak Obama stated that the law was already on the books to save the unborn child if it were born alive from the procedure. You are taking the truth and twisting it around to make it look like he is a baby killer. You should be ashamed of yourselves. I am proudly voting for Obama and I can't wait for him to be our next President. We need to run those anti-choice religious zealots out of office once and for all! And if this makes you feel any better; The Democratic ticket is going to bring programs, jobs and a better economy so that more woman can afford to support and give birth to their unborn child. I'm sure there have been a lot more abortions performed under the Bush regime just for economic reasons alone!
I agree with Dave. This needs to be on youtube. You did a great job... heartwrenching. People need to see it.
If you want people to see this, put it on YouTube!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYONE goes to youtube!!!!
