There's no other term for it: Abortion IS Murder!
Part Two

        In picking up where we left off last Wednesday, I was examining the mindset of the pro-abort politicians. One of the most pro-aborts today is one who supposedly used to be pro-life. That is none other than the Democratic nominee for president of the United States: Al Gore. When Gore was in congress, he had a 84% pro-life voting record. In August 22, 1984, in a letter, Gore wrote, "I have strongly opposed federal funding of abortions. In my opinion, it is wrong to spend federal funds for what is arguably the taking of a human life. . . . It is my deep personal conviction that abortion is wrong. . . . Let me assure you that I share your belief that innocent human life must be protected and I have an open mind on how to further this goal."

        So what happened? When did he sell his soul to the devil? It is a sad state of affairs when the Democratic party offers only these two men to be their candidates for the presidency. Where is the choice for pro-life people in the Democratic party? The party once championed by Catholics has now turned on the Church's teachings. Because of that, I do not see how a true Godly Democrat could vote for either of these two. If Gore or Bradley want to sell their souls to satan for political gain, the decent Democrats do not have to follow suit.

        If you believe in God then you must believe in satan. Jesus Christ was tempted by satan. Do you think satan is lying around on a sunny beach, somewhere, getting a tan? Why not permeate the minds of the leaders of one of the parties in the most powerful country on earth. This is exactly what satan is doing. To think otherwise, you would have to have your head in the sand or satan has blinded you, also. What other explanation, could there be when a group of people can see no evil in killing unborn babies, even while they are being born and suffer severe pain in the process -- who even boast that they are proud of it.

        Why are not these murderers put in jail, when they kill a viable baby? Why does congress have to pass a law to ban this barbaric procedure, only to have someone who is morally bankrupt, veto the ban? We ALREADY have laws in the books for this -- it's called MURDER.

        I have often wondered -- what if a partial-birth murderer was reported to the police by a concerned citizen? What would the police say or do? Would they say, he cannot be arrested, because he is doing abortions? And when it is pointed out to them, that they are NOT abortions -- that abortions are the expulsion of a non viable baby and the babies being killed are viable -- what would the police say or do?

        Under the law, they would have every right to arrest the doctors. These brutal acts are NOT covered under Roe Vs Wade. The doctor cannot use the excuse that he had to kill the baby, to save the life of the mother, because it is NOT an emergency procedure. Other methods are and faster and by doctors, who are better qualified and in a more aseptic hospital environment. I might add, that there WAS a provision in the ban that it could be done to save the life of the mother, but still, Clinton vetoed it. I do not understand why these murderers cannot be prosecuted.

        So, let us, not sit idly by and be seduced by satan, as others have. We must work hard to save these babies from a torturous death. If you believe that there is a God, whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, you MUST vote for pro-life candidates. And you must urge others to do the same. There is no more important issue that faces our country than the killing of unborn babies -- it transcends politics. This is the least we can do for God, Who sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross for our sins. "BEHOLD, CHILDREN ARE HERITAGE OF THE LORD AND THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB IS HIS REWARD."

        Why do those who claim to believe in God, continually want to strip Him of his reward and instead, hand it to satan on a silver platter? 35 million times God has been denied His reward and 35 million times satan has received his wish. God help us before it is too late!
