We Could See the End of Abortion in America

TIME magazine is reporting that the pro-abortionists are losing the abortion argument. Here’s one of the reasons.

Consider the story of 20-month old Lyna Gonzalez. During her mother’s pregnancy, doctors discovered a benign tumor the size of a tennis ball growing on her unborn baby’s mouth. Doctors told Tammy there was little chance her daughter would survive birth – and if she did, she would require an immediate tracheotomy in order to breath and have multiple surgeries thereafter.

Dr. Ruben Quintero, a pioneer in fetal medicine, has treated many birth defects and high risk conditions while the baby is still in the womb. Quintero and Dr. Eftichia Kontopoulos operated on Tammy’s baby in utero. Using an endoscope guided by ultrasound they performed a first of its kind surgery and removed the tumor from the fetus’ mouth.

Leyna Mykaella Gonzalez was born healthy. The only sign of the surgery is a tiny scar on her mouth.

One of the scientific develops that is making it harder for secularists to take a pro-abortion position is new sonogram technology.

“Approximately 10 years ago, General Electric began running an emotionally gripping TV commercial for their technologically astounding 4D Ultrasound Imaging System.  As the tune ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ plays, the commercial begins with a close-up of the loving gaze of an expectant mother. The frame then shifts to the photo-quality image of the face of an unborn baby generated by GE’s 4D technology.  As it shows the two parents staring at the image of their child, their emotional connection with this ‘clump of cells’ is obvious and touching.  The ad finishes with a shot of the parents holding their child—now a newborn baby, and a narrated voice saying ‘When you see your baby for the first time on the new GE 4D Ultrasound System…it really is a miracle.’”

The pro-aborts hated it. They couldn’t make the case anymore that what was being aborted was just a mass of tissue. It was a baby.

Over the years, doctors have operated on babies in utero. You may have seen the picture of the pre-born baby’s hand holding onto the doctor’s finger as he was putting the hand back into the safety of his mother’s womb. You can see, although small, it’s a hand just like any human hand. An hour before it was a hand. Two days before it was a hand. Two months before that it was a hand. That goes for the rest of the baby’s body.

Samuel Armas is no longer a baby. He’s 13 years old. “When I see that picture, the first thing I think of is how special and lucky I am to have God use me that way,” Samuel told FOXNews.com. “I feel very thankful that I was in that picture.”

There’s a book about the photograph: The Hand of Hope. You can see the slide show here.

As these stories get out, and people see the pictures, there will be a change in the way look at pre-born babies and the bloody abortion business.

    If we believe allhumans are worthy of life then what about criminals sentenced to death. Execution is taki g life as much as an abortion. They could be imprisoned as punishment”. But there is a difference in life for those who are pro life. Very hypocritical. The criminals have committed heinous crimes but they are a life. Be pro life.

    • Mudpuppy

      Unbelievable. Are you really that stupid? What crimes have the unborn committed? It is perfectly legal and just for the state to execute those who have committed murder. I think it should be extended to most violent crimes, especially if the criminal has a history and to those that sexually abuse children. Those people are guilty, an unborn child is the essence of innocence. There is nothing hypocritical about it at all and to say so is ludicrous. People like that are not worthy of life. If you think they are, how about you take one or two in as house guests. See how long you survive.

    Give me a break! You CANNOT compare an innocent child to a freaking monster on death row! When someone commits a horrific crime worthy of “death row” an eye for an eye would be in order! Wake up ppl!

  • WW

    Kay, When an unborn child commits a heinous crime from the womb, you and I can talk about aborting it.

  • WW

    I’m sorry but that mentality is beyond words!

    Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that we have we have the irrevocable, unalterable rights of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

    But somehow we now have murder by doctors (abortion), murder by criminals (unconstitutional gun control “laws”) and murder of our economic health by excessive taxes and regulations.

  • WW

    Those liberals walk among us. Be careful!

    I am fine with everyone having their own religious convictions. Clear up until those convictions infringe on my personal convictions. You are welcome to share your religious beliefs with anyone who is willing to listen. But you are not welcome to require a similar opinion from me. If I be damned, so be it. My seed is my concern. Your seed is your concern. It is not within the purview of the Constitution of the united states of America to regulate an individuals activities. This as well as same sex marriage would fall within the jurisdiction of the individual states. Receiving their authority from the people. Therefor, it is up to each individual governing themselves in a Republic to decide how they shall live their lives. I find it irresponsible to have as many children as you can. Even if you are able to feed them all from your toil of the land at some point there undoubtedly will be too many people. This is one of the reasons why so many governments like our own kill off the people by the millions. I am not one to endorse eugenics but I do believe that people should keep their bloodlines and heritage pure. By not reproducing more than ones self and doing so within ones own heritage the need of a government to commit genocide can be eliminated. Sure no one knows where love flows. In suppressing primal urges toward those that one should suppress them is to uplift and support ones own heritage.

    For all of the abortion supporters…who supports the thoughts of Peter Singer? His lunacy is just a logical evolution of the idea of abortion…a slippery slope of sorts.

    The unborn can’t speak for themselves, they are deprived of their opinion. Granted they are too young to form articulate speech and thought, they are defenseless, that is why they must be protected. Killing children in the womb is infanticide. Heck, the President was even supporting post birth abortion (also known as murder). Imagine the horror if you could not speak, and you’re helpless, laying somewhere that should be safe. Then someone comes along and carves you up like a thanksgiving turkey, without anesthesia, and you are completely aware of what is happening to you. Then to add insult to injury, they toss your remains into a garbage pail.

    Why do progressives feel that abortion is a right, and it is ok to condone infanticed.
    I guess asking people to exercise a little self control or personal responsibility for ones actions in today’s day and age is tantamount to tyranny to some. Adults know that sexual intercourse can result in a pregnancy, so, why not take precautionary measures to avoid pregnancy? Birth control devices are easily obtainable and readily available. Birth control devices may not be 100% effective, but, if you want 100% certainty against pregnancy, than abstain from sex. Why should anyone’s irresponsible behavior result in someone elses death?

    • runnindeer

      You are so right.

  • runnindeer

    Something that has concerned me for years is why there are more men who speak out against killing the unborn than there are women? I know all of the tired stuff from women who say it’s all about their rights and that it is war on women and that men could never fully understand bla, bla,bla. But the fact remains that not enough women stand up for the unborn and when they do they are considered to be totally in a class of women that are not in favor with the loudest number of females today. The liberal anti- religious, anti everything crowd. That doesn’t look good for the world in general in my opinion. If I had to be born into a home with some kind of in -human woman who thinks that it is totally wrong to own a firearm for personal protection, wrong to hunt in order to feed a family, wrong to kill during war in order to keep the peace, wrong to vote Republican or Conservative ,and wrong to be Christian- I would rather not be born. How these ( i use the term loosely here) women can be so ignorant as to feel that they should be given free birth control or be allowed to kill the unborn if they choose , but no one should be allowed to make any law to protect and defend the unborn is beyond reason. I don’t understand why any decent man would have them!

      Sometimes, love is blind. What other reason could there be, unless both are cold blooded.

  • Greg137

    Abortion is about population control.. The liberals want to play god, so deciding who should be born and who shouldn’t is introduced as a “right”… But the liberals only want death and nothing else as there is no “right to choose”liberals want death only because there is money involved with abortions., Parents protecting their young is the surest way to stop abortion “dead” in it tracks… The parents can do well to teach a child the value of life, as THAT will help bring an end to the recent massacres… Instilling the sanctity of life in a child…

  • fridihem

    It would be fantastic if the cold blooded murder of innocent children would stop but until we get a congress and a president who believe in the sanctity of life the murder will continue. IMHO these people are no better than the Nazis who murdered millions of innocents. These so called doctors would have had their license to practice medicine at one time, but I guess the left calls this progress. The Hippocratic oath said that you could NOT take the life of anyone but because of the scum in power they took it out, more left wing progress. The moral ramifications are beyond words but their are also financial implications. We have murdered over 40 million children, figure that probably 25+ million on these babies would be 18 or over, what would that of done for the funds into SS, medicare, the government coffers etc? The bottom line is that their is absolutely nothing good about abortion in any case.

    The only way in which abortion can be ended is through supporting politicians for office who advocate State’s Rights. State’s Rights will give us, the citizens, back our power to allocate tax payer money exactly the way we want. We can defund abortions and all other government allocations for the consequences of bad lifestyle choices. By supporting candidates who stand for Constitutionalism and State’s Rights, we will regain the control we need to govern our country. He who controls the purse strings is in charge. Republicans need to regain control of the purse strings. We foolishly handed the purse strings to the immoral Socialists, and now we are stuck – squawking and squawking to no avail.

  • ounbbl

    We CAN, of course. By ObamasCare, by the Presidential mandate, the big Government, benevolent and caring and power-sucking, will give out contraceptives, pills, condoms, after-morning pills, etc, freely distributed, with mandatory use requirement imposed on all hormonally active age group (from teens to menopause), we can have a Orwellian Obaman Utopia in no time.

    NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. The poor will still get them with coat hangers and the wealthy will get them with a “therapeutic abortion” prescription just like they did before the Supreme Court decided to remove the discrimination against the poor and made abortions legal.

  • Icarus62

    As regrettable as abortion is, we really don’t need millions more unwanted babies. The best policy must surely be high quality sex education, ubiquitous access to contraception, and quick, easy and safe abortions where necessary.

    If the people of this country don’t play a part in the overturning of Roe v. Wade, then it will be done for them when the first Islamic regime takes over.

    I pray everyday for this horrible crime to stop,
    God will never bless our country until it is abolished
