(12/05/2017) "The consequences of this casting aside of traditional morality and embracing the 'liberation of the instincts' have by now become obvious: Children raised without fathers, the dismantling of the family, venereal plagues, high rates of divorce, the sexual precocity of teenaged minors, millions of abortions and their psychological trauma, the humiliation and dishonor that comes from being used as a thing for another's pleasure, and all the wider social dysfunctions that have followed. And women have borne the brunt of these changes. No amount of pop-theorizing or feminist bluster has erased the natural differences between the sexes. And men, by nature sexually predatory, have been the biggest beneficiaries."

(11/21/2017) "... baby girl Stensrud's case is such an important one to discuss. Not as a 'gotcha!' to all pro-choice advocates. But simply as a difficult moral question that bears examining. Because 21 weeks four days - the gestational age of baby girl Stensrud - is within the legal limit for abortion in some states. So if, at birth, baby girl Stensrud was a human being whose survival was hoped for and prayed for, and medically intervened for, then shouldn't any baby of that gestational age be a human being as well? Can a person only be a person when you want him to be?"

(11/14/2017) "[A] pro-life lawsuit against a California statute that requires pregnancy centers to promote abortions is heading to the nation's highest court. The California law ["Reproductive FACT Act, AB775"], upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in October, forces pro-life pregnancy centers to promote abortions. Tom Glessner, president and CEO of the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates, said his group was appealing the case to the Supreme Court, arguing that the law violates both free speech and religious freedom."

(11/07/2017) "All 50 states have/ safe haven laws to protect newborn babies from abandonment and infanticide. Save haven laws allow mothers in crisis to leave their newborns in a safe environment, such as a hospital or fire station, without questions or repercussions. ....

(10/31/2017) "... I refuse to be poisoned by bitterness - that's no way to live.... Through my Catholic faith I have learnt to forgive. It doesn't make what happened okay, but it releases you from the pain. We are all human and we all make mistakes."

(10/24/2017) ""Abortion-rights supporters often point out that laws requiring parental consent for abortions can mean that embarrassed teenagers won't get the services they need. And it's true that many girls did resort to unsafe abortions when it wasn't legal. But without parental consent, men can get girls pregnant and then pressure them to have abortions without anyone who cares about them finding out."

(10/17/2017) "The early church was decidedly, vocally, and courageously pro-life and opposed to abortion. One of the earliest documents of Christianity after the New Testament is the Didache, dated to around AD 80-120. The teaching describes two ways: the way of life and the way of death. The way of life demands that Christians 'shall not murder a child by abortion nor commit infanticide.' Both abortion and infanticide were common in the Roman Empire. Christians were forbidden to murder any child, born or unborn."

(10/10/2017) "In normal conception, a sex cell of the father, a sperm, unites with a sex cell of the mother, an ovum. Within the chromosomes of these sex cells are the DNA molecules which constitute the information that guides the development of the new individual brought into being when the sperm and ovum fuse. When fertilization occurs, the 23 chromosomes of the sperm unite with the 23 chromosomes of the ovum. At the end of this process there is produced an entirely new and distinct organism, originally a single cell. This organism, the human embryo, begins to grow by the normal process of cell division - it divides into 2 cells, then 4, 8, 16, and so on (the divisions are not simultaneous, so there is a 3-cell stage, and so on). This embryo gradually develops all of the organs and organ systems necessary for the full functioning of a mature human being."

(10/03/2017) "A large majority of the public holds internally inconsistent views on abortion. For instance, considering just three related issues the legality of abortion, the morality of abortion, and the age at which the fetus becomes human more than three out of four adults have views that do not match. One out of seven adults (14%) emerged as consistently pro-abortion while only 8% were consistently pro-life."

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."
