Can we trust the government to define mental health?
Consider this, if you were to evaluate someone who you knew had already murdered thousands of people, qualifying them with the appellation of mass murderer, and you also knew he had a schedule to commit more murders, would you think the federal, state, and local governments in our land would say such a person is not mentally well? Should they not be permitted to wander free in society to continue their murder spree? You would think so.
But what is the reality? After 60 million murders, the abortionists in our land not only walk free, but the government pays them to commit these mass murders. It is beyond outrageous, and the hypocrisy of our government with their crocodile tears for dead students in the shooting galleries – which they have created – is beyond the pale. It is quite clear that their agenda is to simply disarm the populace in order to enslave us. Don’t trust anyone who demands any violations of our Second Amendment, they are not a friend of liberty!
When we think of battles being fought in our land, we usually think of the weapons that are visible and tangible. But the unseen weapons, those not often thought of, are actually far more important in the battle for our country.
One of the most powerful of those weapons is prayer. There is a great prayer movement in South Carolina focused on ending abortion. Many of these folks are involved with 40 Days for Life. South Carolina also has a strong Legislative Prayer Caucus, a caucus whose members are state legislators committed to advancing policies and initiatives that promote religious freedom, America’s christian heritage, and prayer. There are 40 representatives and 20 senators that compose the Legislative Prayer Caucus, and it appears their prayers – along with the prayers of the citizens of South Carolina – are making an impact:
“South Carolina lawmakers moved forward with a bill [last month] to ban all abortions in the state.
The bill, nicknamed the ‘Personhood Act,’ would require the state to recognize and grant legal protections to every human life, beginning at the moment of conception. It includes exceptions for medical emergencies when the mother’s life is in jeopardy, as well as in vitro fertilization.
The bill passed a state Senate committee Tuesday in a 12-9 vote after a lengthy debate. It now moves to the full state Senate for consideration.
State Lt. Gov. Kevin Bryant sponsored the bill while he was a state senator, and Gov. Henry McMaster said he will sign the legislation if it reaches his desk, according to the report.
Approximately 6,000 unborn babies are aborted in South Carolina every year, the report states.
State Sen. Richard Cash, R-Anderson, said they hope the bill will overturn Roe v. Wade and end abortion in the U.S.[By the way they don’t need to overturn Roe v. Wade, it is not law as courts do not make law, it simply needs to be ignored by law abiding Sheriffs who round up and imprison the murderers committing abortions in their county.]
‘We are trying to challenge the Supreme Court on their fundamental error that a human being is not a person,’ Cash said. ‘A human being is a person.’”( www.lifenews.com)
There was a rather heated debate in the Senate Committee:
“Some doctors have voiced concerns the measure does not include any exceptions for situations when the life of the mother is in danger, warning it could create a ‘nightmare scenario’ in which doctors have to choose between saving the mother or ‘murdering’ the embryo.
[I guess the murder of 6000 babies each year is not a nightmare in the twisted minds of these who love murder.]
Cash argued no one would prosecute doctors if they take medical actions to save the mother’s life that result in the unintentional death of a child.
He additionally defended the prospective law’s abortion restrictions in cases of rape or incest, including when the victim is a child.
‘If a child is raped, yes, that is a horrible act,’ Cash said when pressed by a colleague. ‘Two wrongs don’t make a right. You cannot erase the rape by killing the child. The child is an innocent person.’” (www.postandcourier.com)
To that I fully agree and would add what Pastor John MacArther said, “No human being then, is ever conceived outside God’s will or ever conceived apart from God’s image.” Or Dr. Ben Carson who said, “As a surgeon I have operated on infants pre-birth. I can assure you that they are very much alive.”
