Between 1861 and 1865, more than 50,000 civilians died as a direct result of the American Civil War. In the years between 1914 and 1918, more than 7,000,000 innocent civilians died as a direct result of World War I. From 1939 to 1945, more than 23,000,000 innocents died as a direct result of World War II. (This number includes the 11 million deliberately killed in concentration camps.) Between 1922 and 1952, Stalin purged Russia of anyone whom he considered a threat or disloyal, murdering somewhere over 25,000,000 innocent people. Mao Tse-tung murdered more than 45,000,000 people from his own country in his rise to power. But on January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court made a decision that has resulted in the legalized murder of over 56,000,000 of the most innocent persons that could exist in the place that should be the safest place on earth. Roe vs. Wade is a horrible black mark on our country that we will be called to account for before God. The video “180” produced in 2011 is one that I highly encourage everyone to watch (both pro-life and pro-choice). It will change your life. -HJL

If you feel that binary triggers and bump fire stocks should remain legal, please contact the BATFE and post a public comment in the current rule-making period. Here is what I posted: “Please use common sense and a plain reading of the current law, and continue to interpret the NFA exemption for bump fire stocks or other parts for semi-autos, based upon the literal meaning of the words “a single function of the trigger.” Bump fire stocks and binary triggers meet the test of the current law and the intent of Congress when they wrote that law. You cannot expand the definition of the law by decree. The law is the law.” Please consider consider posting something similar, here.
Innocents Betrayed is a great documentary of the genocides of the 20th century all of which were proceeded by gun registration and confiscation.
I contend that decision also gives me the right to control the inoculations I receive. Abortion is the debated issue. But, it does say we have the right to choose our medical procedures.
Thank you for posting about this subject!
Due to the worship of science as god in our culture many continue to argue that DNA makes itself (naturalism or reductionism) and a fetus is not a baby. The cognitive dissonance is shocking!
Ultimately, man hates the very essence of creation (life) because man hates the Creator. It may be just that simple. I pray for those who are seething with hatred and that includes many feminists. I pray that their eyes would be opened and that humility would crush their pride.
My concern is that the churches are not willing to face the reality of the destructive and vast influence that the march for death has had (at the core levels) on our society. We must find a way to offer hope to those who have had abortions or are complicit. Mercy is a critical factor.
We must endeavor to help people to heal. This requires a harsh dealing with reality FIRST, repentance and forgiveness. Otherwise, we risk alienated those who continue to suffer in our society; those are who are lost and confused about what to do with their guilt and shame. Those who lose all hope and choose death for themselves.
Abortion: I feel it’s a crime to take my money via taxes and give it to an abortion doctor to work his murder. It is my duty to prevent my taxes to going to such ends.
..in other news.
I filled out the BATF form as requested with the same germane message. I’m always.. rather, I’m no longer surprised that other commenters’ believe that banning equipment saves lives. Q: do they know history? A: no.
I agree with you about abortion.
I have to wonder if God expects to withhold those taxes which support abortion. Are we like the so-called ‘good Germans’ who just followed government orders?
For the last couple of days I have been watching on the News the so called women’s movement, the turn out in many places have been hundreds of thousands. My thoughts are just how many would there have been, if they were not protesting for immoral or illegal actions such as, Homosexuality, Abortion and Illegal Immigration. Trekker Out
I agree whole heartedly about the tragedy of abortion. However, we will continue to lose that battle if we continue to argue from a Biblical view point. I agree with the Biblical view that only God gives life. But to argue that it should be outlawed due to our religious belirfs will only add to the resistance of religion imposing rules upon society.
The science is clear. The DNA of a fetus is human from the start. If we care for children at age 1 day, we must care for them at anytime in life.
A woman has the complete right to choose, her choice of mate if any, her choice to have sex or not and her choice of lifestyle(by the current cultural standards). She doesn’t have the choice to drink and get behind the wheel and drive. That is the law for the protection of society. I believe her choice should stop at the point of eliminating life. Should she be punished if she does? No, but as a physician, I believe the doctor who performs the abortion should.
