(07/29/2015) "The fetal period begins on day 57 after fertilization and ends at birth. The tissues and organs that were formed during the embryonic period continue to grow during the fetal period, but the changes aren't as pronounced. Ultrasonic measurements are used to measure embryonic growth. .... Physicians can now measure how the fetus is growing and what its state of health is with a very high degree of accuracy. Through advanced surgical procedures, doctors can operate on the fetus without leaving a scar."

(07/22/2015) Within the past few weeks, two undercover videos of Planned Parenthood representatives selling body parts of aborted babies have been released. Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services, PPFA, and Mary Gatter, Medical Director of Planned Parenthood in Pasadena, CA, described in graphic detail how to procure specific fetal organs and how much Planned Parenthood would charge buyers for the purchase of those organs. (The full footage of both videos - 2 hours, 42 minutes and  1 hour, 13.5 minutes, respectively - is included at the end of the sourced articles.)

(07/15/2015) "The United Methodist Church will gather for its next General Conference in May, 2016, but work behind the scenes is well underway. [More than 860 delegates from 130 annual conferences will be part of the event at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.] It is a time of prayer and planning to guide the denomination for years to come, and a huge undertaking. Members of the Commission on General Conference recently visited the General Conference site...."

(07/07/2015) "... Tamesha Means, who miscarried in 2010, was represented by the ACLU and ACLU Michigan with her lawsuit against the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishop and three chairs of Catholic Health Ministries. She did not, however, sue the hospital Mercy Health, or its parent, Trinity Health Corp. Judge Robert Holmes Bell dismissed the case. .... Bell noted that Means still had recourse in the courts to sue doctors or hospitals for medical malpractice if she received inadequate medical care – but not, the judge concluded, to sue a religious organization or officials for their religious doctrine."

(06/30/2015) "...[A]ccording to the Guttmacher Institute, as of May 1, 2015, 23 states had ultrasound laws in place; they are common. The shared element of each law is that a woman seeking an abortion first obtains an ultrasound. There are different nuances in each state, including the kind of ultrasound required (abdominal verses transvaginal) and if/how the woman seeking the abortion will view the image. Ultrasound laws fall in the category of “informed consent laws” because they provide the woman with factual (and pictorial) information to help her make what could be the most significant decision of her life."

(06/23/2015) "It just occurred to me that being pro-life is being pro-other-people's-lives. Everyone is pro-their-own-life."

"Headlines are screaming that Americans who hold they are pro-choice now outnumber those who say they are pro-life, 50 percent to 44 percent respectively. The media is reporting that this is the first time since 2008 that more Americans have identified themselves as pro-choice than pro-life. But there’s more to it. Looking closer at the numbers, 19 percent of respondents said abortion should be illegal in all circumstances and 36 percent said it should be legal in only a few circumstances. Those two groups make up 55 percent of respondents, while people who said abortion should be legal in all and most circumstances amount to 42 percent."

(06/03/2015) "An embryo, or a new human, comes into existence when a zygote is produced at fertilization by the combination of a sperm with an ovum. The sperm has 23 chromosomes and so does the ovum, but the zygote has 46  chromosomes. Although half of its chromosomes come from each parent, the zygote is genetically different than either of them, and is, in fact, genetically unique."

(05/19/2015) “Abortion doesn’t advance people of color,”.... “The NAACP is on the wrong side of this human rights issue, and they are wrong to try to silence our free speech, too.”

2015 MODEL RESOLUTIONS FOR YOUR ANNUAL CONFERENCE (pdf)  (doc)

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."
