"… when the pro-choice community
frames abortion as a difficult decision, it implies that women need help
deciding, which opens the door to paternalistic and demeaning 'informed consent'
laws. It also stigmatizes abortion and the women who need it. …. But there's a
more pernicious result when pro-choice advocates use such language: It is a
tacit acknowledgment that terminating a pregnancy is a moral issue requiring an
ethical debate. To say that deciding to have an abortion is a 'hard choice'
implies a debate about whether the fetus should live, thereby endowing it with a
status of being. It puts the focus on the fetus rather than the woman."

that we sit around and call other ancient civilizations heathen
because of human sacrifice but aren’t we actually guilty of the
same thing? The good thing is the American populace is moving
closer and closer to understanding that abortion is murder.
Every year we’re getting better on that regard.”

pro-life. It drives and it motivates me. I find joy in being the
voice for the unborn every day, even if it’s just in the
smallest ways. There was a time in my life when you couldn’t
have paid me a million dollars to truthfully and passionately
say the statement above. I used to be pro-choice. Pro-choice to
my very core and then everything changed… I had an abortion."
At 11 weeks after conception, the baby is about 2-1/2
inches long and weighs about ½ ounce. By the time a woman’s pregnancy “shows,”
the baby is fully formed. All that is necessary now is time to grow and
mature in preparation for birth.

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
