Show Them the Truth

Church Groups Turn to Sonogram to Turn Women From Abortions

"Sixteen months ago, Andrea Brown, 24 years old and unmarried, was desperate for an abortion, fearing the disappointment of her parents and the humiliation she might face.

While frantically searching the telephone book one day, she came across the Bowie Crofton Pregnancy Center and Medical Clinic, a church-financed organization that provides counseling and education about sexual abstinence. The receptionist told Ms. Brown that the clinic did not perform abortions or make referrals but that she could come in for an ultrasound to make sure her six-and-a-half-week pregnancy was viable. When she did, everything changed.

"When I had the sonogram and heard the heartbeat - and for me a heartbeat symbolizes life - after that there was no way I could do it," Ms. Brown said recently as she revisited the clinic and watched her daughter, Elora, now 9 months old, play at her feet."

Ankle Biting Pundits posted some quotes from Planned Parenthhood, read them - I have a question.

My question to them is this: What is so horrible about a woman continuing her pregnancy? How could that possibly be a bad thing? There is something seriously wrong with promoting as many abortions as possible. It's sick. It's worse than sick, it's evil. Sorry, I know that's a concept you can't grasp. Nevertheless, it's true.

But we are all as the unclean thing , and all our righteousnesses are as a menstruation cloth. And we all fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

And there is no one who calls on Your name, who stirs up himself to take hold of You. For You have hidden Your face from us, and have melted us away because of our iniquities.

But now, O Jehovah, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You are our Former; and we all are the work of Your hand.

Do not be grievously angry, O LORD, nor remember iniquity forever. Behold! Look, please; all of us are Your people. Isaiah 64:6-9
