08/23/16) "The UMC position on abortion says, 'Our belief in the sanctity of unborn human life makes us reluctant to approve abortion.' However, the denomination also 'recognize[s] tragic conflicts of life with life that may justify abortion, and in such cases we support the legal option of abortion under proper medical procedures by certified medical providers.' The [America Magazine] said the UMC position matches more closely to former president Bill Clinton, who often said that abortion should be 'safe, legal and rare.' Hillary Clinton no longer uses the term 'rare' to describe her abortion position. Abortion activists who support Clinton say the term 'rare' stigmatizes women who have abortions."

Then, Schroeder says, an adult stem cell transplant gave her a new lease on life."

The Democratic presidential candidate came under fire for that ... comment, but she also drew widespread condemnation for another remark in the speech. The [second] comment had Clinton essentially saying that Christians must be forced to change their religious views to accommodate abortions."

(07/05/16) "Less than a week after the U.S. Supreme Court nullified certain abortion safety laws, a medical emergency at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St. Louis, MO, has illustrated how women have been left in jeopardy by the nation’s High Court. It happened on Saturday, July 2, 2016, a heavy abortion day. Paramedics were photographed by pro-life activists as they removed a Planned Parenthood patient from the abortion facility and loaded her into an awaiting ambulance. Abortion workers and an armed security guard attempted to conceal the incident by holding up large brown tarps."

Hellerstedt", there is good news.   "When they filed a lawsuit against the Texas law, the abortion businesses behind the suit and Planned Parenthood did not challenge the law’s prohibition on abortions that take place at 20 weeks or later, a provision based on evidence that demonstrates the baby can feel pain at that stage. The good news is that that abortion ban, despite today’s Supreme Court ruling, still stands."

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."
