Knowing their hypocrisy he [Jesus] said to them, 'Why are you testing me? Bring me a denarius to look at.'
They brought one to him and he said to them, 'Whose IMAGE and inscription is this?' They replied to him, 'Caesar's' (Mk 12:15-16). So Jesus said to them, 'Repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God' (Mk 12:15-16). So the question is this, does an unborn child have an IMAGE that would identify who the child belongs too? And if the child has an image, does this image belong to Caesar and Planned Parenthood or to God?
God says in Genesis that we are made in his image; God said: 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness'... God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them (Gen 1:26-27). And so the child in the mother's womb is the very image of God. In the case of the denarius, the image is Caesar; however in the case of the child, since the IMAGE on the child is God's image, we give the child to God.
When a child is murdered through abortion and his/her baby parts are sold on the open market, we are in violation of God's very own words. We are accountable for this and God is not pleased, I will demand an accounting for human life. If anyone sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the IMAGE of God has man been made (Gen 9:5-6). We cannot shed the blood of innocent children and expect that somehow it is okay and God will understand.

Many years ago I met a young woman; her name was Rosie and like her name and she was always rosy. She became pregnant and decided to go through with an abortion and then Rosie wasn't rosy anymore. She was depressed. Rosie then had another abortion and in the end she took her life by shooting herself in the head. The Caesars of the world will tell you abortion is both necessary and compassionate. I knew Rosie well, and the abortions that were performed on her were neither necessary nor compassionate. They left her depressed and suicidal.
On another occasion I had a Jewish friend who became pregnant and she told me that she was going to go through with an abortion. She wasn't talking this over with me; she was notifying me that she was going to disappear for a couple of weeks. I was stunned. I said nothing. Actually, she told me this was her third abortion. I remember feeling guilty because I never said anything. I didn't know what to say. From hind sight, I wish that I would have just told her, please don't have this abortion; it will not be good for you or your baby.
At my place of employment, a coworker said to me, I don't believe in abortion, but I don't have a right to impose my beliefs on others. I explained to him that if a woman is considering an abortion, do not approve it. She may be in great distress and looking for someone to help her to say no. If she listens to you, she will be eternally grateful. If she does not want to have a child or is not in a good position to raise one, please suggest the idea of adoption, since there are so many desiring to have a child. He said no more, but I could tell he was taking what I said into consideration. Having an abortion is not to be taken lightly. Of those who do, there are many who find themselves depressed; some commit suicide, still others eventually turn to God, and experience forgiveness and happiness once more. Many of these wonderful women are warning others not to abort their children.
On another day I went to work wearing a shirt with prolife wording on it. One of my coworkers, a young black man began to taunt me for this. In addition to this, he did not like white people, especially white males. I thought well maybe he didn't know about the early years of contraception and abortion, and the fact that they were trying to limit the size of the black and other minority races. My explanation fell on deaf ears.
And so the following day I brought him some of the racist sayings of Margaret Sanger; Sanger once said, “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race” and even said, “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal... According to a recent study from The Center for Disease Control 82 Percent of Abortions in New York City and 64% in Texas Were on Black or Hispanic Babies. Hey Margaret, mission accomplished. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/12/16/Margaret-Sanger-we-want-to-exterminate-the-negro-population-her-wish-is-coming-true/ It had no effect on him; however, since he was so adamantly pro-abortion, I assumed there must be a reason. I was thinking perhaps he had paid for one or more abortions and doesn't want to deal with his guilt, but I didn't really know.
It was not much fun driving into work knowing what I was going to go through with another confrontation. The third day, the mockery continued. And so finally I said to him; what you are telling me is that you are defending white racists' organizations that like to murder little black babies through abortions. This ended the conversation. However, after this there seemed to be some real respect between us that was not there before. One of the other brothers explained to me that he had a conversation with this man. He had indeed gotten someone pregnant and they were contemplating having an abortion. However, he had a change of heart and said, I am not going to let her have an abortion!
- Whoever receives this child in my name receives me (Lk 46:48).
Another acquaintance invited me out for dinner. I got there first and when she arrived, before she sat down, she emphatically said; I have had three abortions and if you don't like it, you can just get up and walk out of here! I told her that I have only one word for her and that is mercy. She sat down. Later, I took her to a Marian conference and at this conference there was a tremendous prolife theme. On the way home, she asked me if I knew in advance that they were going to be dealing with prolife issues. I told her no, but I wasn't the least bit surprised since Mary did not abort her child, but gave birth to him. I then asked her if she had named her children that she previously aborted. She said, no, should I? I told her that her children are in Heaven praying for her, and what a child wants more than anything else is to be loved. The naming of her children could be the first step on the road to accepting and loving her children.
- But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God." The people brought the little children to Jesus. Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them (L 18:15). Do not bring your infant to be sacrificed at an abortion clinic; bring your child to Jesus to be blessed. He has a special place for your child in the Kingdom of God.
Blood Money is a book written by a former abortion clinic owner. Most women who have abortions deeply regret it. I've researched abortion for a book. A good book to read is "Blood Money." It was written by a "former" abortion clinic owner. Most women who have abortions deeply regret it. They are so wounded. Even the few who still say they thought it was the right decision are sad about it. And it was the few. Again the majority are quiet, wounded, addicted to drugs, alcohol, sex and yes even multiple abortions. Some commit suicide, and some slowly kill themselves through addiction. One man told me his wife won't talk about it, and he cries when he thinks about it. The children are the fatalities, the mothers and fathers, the wounded. I know good people who had abortions...good people who are now wonderful parents. Pray for those who are wounded by abortion.

I dance as a hobby and on one of the dance sites on Face book, they advertised a Tango (Pink Milonga) event. Here is the ad; This is a fund raising event for Susan G Karmen 3 day for the Cure. Net Proceeds Will be donated to this cause which is investing in breast cancer research and community programs. The research funded focuses on decreasing breast cancer incidence and mortality in the next decade. After seeing this, I responded to this ad because Komen donates part of their proceeds to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the country. In fact, in 2,009, they gave $730K to Planned Parenthood.
Someone objected to what I wrote because I was bringing up abortion and he didn't think this topic was proper to be posted on a dance site. I pointed out that abortion indirectly was brought up on the site because Komen is listed and they give to the largest abortion provider in the country. I made the point that Komen does not need your donations; it has ample funds and more to give to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood does not do breast cancer research, they are involved in the baby killing business and more recently have been in the baby parts trafficking business. Why does Komen give to Planned Parenthood? I don't know. Perhaps Komen is reasoning that if little girls are aborted in the wombs of their mothers, they will never get breast cancer.
At the end of the invitation to the dance, there was a recommendation in the form of a note; Don't forget to wear pink. I responded by suggesting that THEY WEAR RED in memory of the little children being martyred through abortion by Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.
And then of course there are the hard cases such as rape and incest and a young woman ends up being pregnant. A great evil has been committed. Again our society tells her to have an abortion and everything will be okay. Initially a great atrocity has been committed against her and now they invite this woman to participate in another atrocity, the taking of the life of her own child through abortion. A second evil cannot remove the first. The people who propose the death penalty for a child by way of abortion do not seem to comprehend that it is the father who should be punished not the child. The good news is that not all women fall for the abortion fallacy, that things will be better afterwards. And just as Mary gave birth to Jesus; they choose to give birth to their children. Here is what one person had to say about being conceived in rape.
An atheist has a near death experience. I find it interesting on how people become prolife. She saw the sin of abortion as our Lord sees it, and describes a trip to Hell! The Lord showed me in the Book of Life what happened when the doctor did the abortion," claimed a dentist, Dr. Gloria Polo, from Colombia, who described a trip to hell during an experience in Bogota on May 5, 1995. "When you tear out this baby, this life... I saw how the Lord jumps, when this soul is ripped from His Hands," wrote Gloria, who had led a life of atheism and sexual immorality, including abortions. "When they kill him, the baby cries out so much; all of Heaven trembles! Every time that the blood of the baby is shed, it is a holocaust to Satan, who acquires still more power. In hell, it is a cry of jubilation and of triumph. After the abortions, I thought that I no longer committed sins. The saddest thing was how, in my family-planning program, I was also killing. Do you know why? I was using the IUD (intrauterine device) as a contraceptive, from the time I was sixteen years old." Struck by lightning Death judgment and conversion http://www.i-h-s.eu/www/gloria/htdocs/contactoeng.html
This Planned Parenthood doctor was handed a prolife tract. After receiving a prolife tract, and having read it; I got angry, but I didn’t throw it away. And then for some reason, I couldn’t perform abortions anymore. I broke down that day and felt like I had died on the inside. Millions of emotions came at me and I had a weight of guilt, on my shoulders so heavy. So heavy, worse than any depression I’ve ever felt.
He had a dream and saw the children he had killed by abortion. This doctor who performed over 48,000 abortions becomes a prolife activist. Abortion and infanticide, then, were morally permissible. Both were legal. Adasevic said he first began to question abortion when he began having unusual dreams. The documentary notes: He dreamed about a beautiful field full of children and young people who were playing and laughing, from 4 to 24 years of age, but who ran away from him in fear. A man dressed in a black and white habit stared at him in silence. The dream was repeated each night and he would wake up in a cold sweat. One night, he asked the man in black and white who he was. “My name is Thomas Aquinas.” “Why don’t you ask me who these children are?” St. Thomas asked me in my dream. “They are the ones you killed with your abortions,” St. Thomas told me.
Adasevic owes his life to another abortionist’s mistake. His mother was pregnant with him when she sought an abortion, but the abortionist botched it and he was born alive. http://liveactionnews.org/abortionist-performed-40000-abortions-becomes-pro-life-activist/
- Why don’t you ask me who these children are? They are the ones you killed with your abortions.
Annette, who used to be prochoice explains why prochoice people are so defensive. I've had some friends (both on and offline) ask me why proabortionists get so emotional and hot under the collar when they debate the abortion issue with prolife people. As someone who was a "prochoice" activist from 1976-1991 and has been prolife since 1991, I know why, and will tell you: it's because they either had an abortion, or worry they may want one someday and not be able to get one. As for the men who are vehemently proabortion, same thing: they worry they may need to help a girlfriend get an abortion, and won't be able too. They may deny this, but it's the truth. Its why they get so angry and emotional. ANNETTE RF
Abortion is an ugly business and some people just don't want too even deal with the issue. I know of a priest who said he never wanted to be involved with the abortion issue, but he couldn't get away from it. The problem is that women were coming to him who were now beginning to deal with the trauma of their abortion, 10 20 30 even 40 years after the fact.
There are men and women who, at one point in their life, got caught up in the abortion mentality and were convinced that it was both necessary and a woman's right. Many of these same people today are very active in prolife groups sounding the alarm so that women are not duped into the pain and horror of having an abortion. They are trying to save people from this trauma so others will not have to go through what they went through. These women are God's angels shedding light into the darkness of abortion.
