(02/08/18) Although a slim majority of Americans (51%) describe themselves as pro-choice, 56% of Americans believe abortion is morally wrong, and 76% want significant restrictions on abortion. More than six in ten Americans support a ban on abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, and 52% of respondents - including 25% of those who consider themselves pro-choice - say having an abortion is more likely to cause harm to a woman than it is to do her good

(01/30/18) "The prolife movement is rooted in equality, rooted in Love, rooted in Hope. Despite the caricatures that #fakenews media tries to make of us, we are the ones who fight for human dignity and true equality. We are the ones who care for mother and child (free of charge) in a network of over 3,000 compassionate pregnancy resource centers nationwide (here, here, here, and here), in over 450 maternity homes, in fatherhood mentoring programs like Project D.A.D., and family support ministries like Catholic Charities and the Salvation Army."

(01/16/18) "There is a 48-year-old woman, born in Texas, who should be dead right now. In fact, she should have never been born. Forty-three years ago, the Supreme Court decided that the Texas law that prevented Jan Roe from ending the life of her unborn daughter was unconstitutional. But by the time the Supreme Court issued its decision in 1973, she had already been born and adopted by a family—likely not knowing that all that ink spilled in Roe v. Wade was about her."

(01/09/18) The ANNUAL LIFEWATCH WORSHIP SERVICE will be held at 9:30 am on Friday, January 19, 2018 at the United Methodist Building, 100 Maryland Avenue in Washington, DC. (As you face the US Supreme Court, the UM Building stands directly to the left.) The Rev. Dr. David F. Watson, professor of New Testament and Vice President for Academic Affairs and Academic Dean at United Theological Seminary in Dayton, OH, will give the sermon. Later the same day, following the March for Life, please join us again at 3:00 pm in the UM Building for our Lifewatch Board meeting. All are invited to attend. We hope to see you there!

(01/03/18) “True freedom is not found through sexual “liberation,” but through healthy boundaries. True freedom is found through recognizing human dignity. True freedom is found in living according to our design. As countercultural as it is, true freedom can only be found through embracing the biblical view of relationships, sex, and marriage.”

(12/27/2017) When Kaito Kryvenchuk’s parents learned that he probably was going to die, they could have given up all hope and took their doctors’ advice to abort him. Instead, the Canadian family decided that their unborn son deserved a chance at life – even a one in 50,000 chance.

(12/19/2017) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. .... The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth."

Source: John 1:1-2, 14 (NIV)

(12/12/2017) "The human embryo ... possesses from the beginning the internal resources and active disposition to develop himself or herself to full maturity; all he or she needs is a suitable environment and nutrition. The direction of his or her growth is not extrinsically determined, but the embryo is internally directing his or her growth toward full maturity. .... an embryo (and fetus) is a human being at a certain (early) stage of development - the embryonic (or fetal) stage. In abortion, what is killed is a human being, a whole living member of the species homo sapiens, the same kind of entity as you or I, only at an earlier stage of development."

(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."

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."
