(11/29/16) "A new poll indicates that a strong majority of Americans support legislation to protect unborn babies from abortions after 20 weeks when scientific evidence indicates they can feel pain. ... 64 percent of voters support the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, according to the poll from the Polling Company Inc./WomenTrend. Support was even stronger among women and Millennials: 67 percent of women and 78 percent of young voters said they would support the legislation. In addition, 70 percent of blacks and 57 percent of Hispanic voters said they would support the 20-week abortion limit...."

I also believe with Thomas Jefferson’s view, when he said in another context, 'I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.' How can God continue to bless us when we have now killed up to 60 million of preborn children since Roe v. Wade?"

     PARTY
PLATFORMS:
2016 Democratic Party Platform: "Democrats are committed to protecting and advancing reproductive health, rights, and justice. We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion — regardless of where she lives, how much money she makes, or how she is insured. We believe that reproductive health is core to women’s, men’s, and young people’s health and wellbeing. We will continue to stand up to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood health centers, which provide critical health services to millions of people. We will continue to oppose — and seek to overturn — federal and state laws and policies that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment. We condemn and will combat any acts of violence, harassment, and intimidation of reproductive health providers, patients, and staff. We will defend the ACA, which extends affordable preventive health care to women, including no-cost contraception, and prohibits discrimination in health care based on gender

Republican Party Platform 2016: "The Constitution’s guarantee that no one can “be deprived of life, liberty or property” deliberately echoes the Declaration of Independence’s proclamation that “all” are “endowed by their Creator” with the inalienable right to life. Accordingly, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth. We oppose the use of public funds to perform or promote abortion or to fund organizations, like Planned Parenthood, so long as they provide or refer for elective abortions or sell fetal body parts rather than provide healthcare. We urge all states and Congress to make it a crime to acquire, transfer, or sell fetal tissues from elective abortions for research, and we call on Congress to enact a ban on any sale of fetal body parts. In the meantime, we call on Congress to ban the practice of misleading women on so-called fetal harvesting consent forms, a fact revealed by a 2015 investigation. We will not fund or subsidize healthcare that includes abortion coverage. ....

(10/26/16) "As a nurse, I want to be absolutely clear: If a mother’s life is in danger at any time after 24 weeks, let alone in the 9th month, the infant can be delivered via c-section to save the mother. The infant is given a chance at life. It does not need to be killed to save the mother. Never in the 9th month would that ever be a thought for most healthcare professionals. That’s not healthcare. That’s murder."

(10/19/16) "Since its inception, Planned Parenthood has been directly responsible for the deaths of nearly seven million unborn children. It was founded upon Margaret Sanger’s reprehensible belief that the human race could somehow be 'improved' by ridding the world of less fortunate minorities. Never heard that? The media don’t report it."

(10/12/16) “What I can’t understand is with Hillary Clinton, and now Senator Kaine at her side, is to support a practice like partial-birth abortion. And to hold to the view, and I know Senator Kaine, you hold pro-life views personally, but the very idea that a child that is almost born into the world could still have their life taken from them is just anathema to me. And I can't conscience about a party that supports that or that, I know that you've historically opposed taxpayer funding of abortion, but Hillary Clinton wants to repeal the long-standing provision in the law where we said we wouldn't use tax-payer dollars to fund abortion. .... It all for me begins with cherishing the dignity, the worth, the value of every human life.”

(10/05/16) "The International Planned Parenthood Federation cautions activists to avoid the 'p' word. It’s not a person until it’s born or, as Senator Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) once suggested, until you bring it home from the hospital. Until then, it’s a fetus or uterine 'contents.' Planned Parenthood advises that activists not say 'abort a child,' preferring 'terminate a pregnancy' or some such."

(09/13/16) As of Tuesday, September 13, the names of the General Board of Church & Society (GBCS) and the United Methodist Women (UMW) are still listed on the "Organizational Brochure" of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC). Requests to have the names removed from the brochure have, thus far, been ignored. (Both organizations have been removed from RCRC's list of "Coalition Members" -  

A page called "Standing Together for Reproductive Justice: RCRC and Methodists of Conscience - RCRC Welcomes You" encourages United Methodist laity and clergy to attend RCRC's online events, donate to RCRC, and post one's support of RCRC on Facebook and Twitter. While individual UM's are free to associate, or not, with RCRC, why does the organization exclude the full title from the online sign-up sheet? What are they trying to hide?!

(08/30/16) “'Marriage has historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time, and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman,' said [Hillary] Clinton in White Plains, New York on the 2000 campaign trail. .... This all dramatically changed on March 18, 2013, when ... she came out for same-sex 'marriage.' 'LGBT Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship,' said Mrs. Clinton. 'That includes gay marriage.'"

Note: This article speaks to all three issues which Lifewatch/TUMAS emphasizes: abortion and the sanctity of life, sanctity of traditional marriage, and religious liberty.

PRAYER:

Father, you have created us in body and soul
To honor you and our neighbor
And to receive honor and respect in return.

Our bodies are sacred.
They reflect you, our Creator.
And we hold sacred
The bodies of all the children in the womb.

Lord, we are saddened
That these children are being killed,
And saddened again
That their body parts are being harvested and sold.

Have mercy on our nation.
Have mercy on those who are perpetrating these evils.
As more and more people become aware of this,
Turn their hearts towards you,
The Fountain of life and love.

Give consolation to all who have had abortions,
And give wisdom to our public officials
That they may respond adequately
To the corruption found in the abortion industry.

Grant that we,
The People of Life and the People of Mercy,
May recommit ourselves to building a nation
Without abortion and without the many evils that flow from us.

May we choose life;
May we choose mercy;
May we choose your Kingdom!
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Source of the prayer: Father Frank Pavone, President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council (of which Lifewatch is a member) and National Director of Priests for Life.

Our Mission:

Out of obedience to Jesus Christ, the Taskforce of United Methodists on Abortion and Sexuality (TUMAS) will work to create in church and society esteem for human life at its most vulnerable, specifically for the unborn child and for the Woman who contemplates abortion.  Therefore, TUMAS's first goal is to win the hearts and minds of United Methodists, to engage in abortion-prevention through theological, pastoral and social emphases that support human life."
