Being Handicapped is NOT a Crime! | Abolish Abortion

 

Being Handicapped is NOT a Crime! | Abolish Abortion.

By: Suzanne Ward

 

Prenatal (before birth) testing today results in the early diagnosis of more and more abnormalities from the extremely simple to the very complex.  Sadly, physicians may suggest terminating a pregnancy with only a possible risk of abnormality, probably due to fear of malpractice law suits.

Half of the children targeted for destruction are not even affected by the feared abnormality.  More normal children are killed than handicapped children.

As a society, we must remember that a child’s right to life is given by their Creator, not their parents or even the state.  Being handicapped is not a capital crime and should never carry a death sentence.  In any or all circumstances, we want to protect and support both mother and child.

Studies show that women who choose abortion for genetic reasons have significant grief reactions, a high rate of depression, and flashbacks.  Negative reactions are also seen in the siblings even when they had no direct knowledge of the event.

Approximately 20% of U.S. adults have some sort of disability according to the Centers for Disease Control, or CDC.  Many, many of these individuals accomplish amazing things in spite of great challenges.  Let’s ‘meet’ just a few of them:

Robert Michael Hensel was born in 1969, with a birth defect known as Spina bifida. His disability would limit him to a wheelchair, but he continues to find ways to positively impact people.  Hensel is an award-winning poet and has recently been recognized by the Museum of Disability History in Buffalo, New York.

Hensel is a Guinness World Records holder for the longest non-stop “wheelie” in a wheelchair. His efforts have raised money for wheelchair ramps throughout his hometown of Oswego, New York.   Hensel continues to raise awareness of the many talents and accomplishments made by disabled individuals.  Says Hensel:

  • “Know me for my abilities, not my disability.”
  • “I don’t have dis-ability, I have a different-ability.”
  • “When everyone else says you can’t, determination says, YES YOU CAN.”
  • “No disability or dictionary out there is capable of clearly defining who we are as a person. It’s only when we step out of that labeled box, that our abilities begin to be fully recognized, giving us a better definition of who we truly are as individuals.”  Read the rest at  abolish abortion!

New Congressional Bill Would Stop Secret Abortions on Teenagers | LifeNews.com.

by Steven Ertelt

 

Senator Marco Rubio is introducing a a major pro-life bill, the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, today that would stop secret abortions on teenagers.

The bill would require an abortion practitioner to notify a parent before performing an abortion on a minor who resides in a different state. It would also make it a crime for a non-parent to transport a minor across state lines to evade a parental notification law.

Slavery & ‘the people of Cuba…ought to be free’- President McKinley via American Minute

American Minute with Bill Federer

FEB. 15 – Slavery &  ‘the people of Cuba…ought to be free’- President McKinley

  
Ancient cultures, such as the Egyptians andRomans had state-imposed forced labor of peasants who were in debt to the government.In pre-Columbian America, the Inca Empire had a system of mandatory public service known as mita, and the Aztec’s had tlacotin.


Spain conquered the New World in the early 1500’s and set up a system called encomienda or repartimiento, which was similar to feudal France’s Corvée “unfree labour.”

Slavery in Cuba began earlier and lasted longer than anywhere else in the Americas.

When indigenous Indians died from harsh treatment and lack of immunity to diseases, Spain replaced them with Africans bought from Muslim slave markets.

Priests like Bartolomé de las Casas, Franciscan Friars, Papal Bulls, and Christian missionaries, such as the Moravians, were a voice of conscience against slavery, but Colonial governments largely ignored them.

A notorious trade triangle developed with Havana, Cuba, at its center: SLAVES from Africa to SUGAR from the Caribbean to RUM in England.

Importation of slaves to the United States ended in 1807, but in 1839, an international incident occurred.

A Portuguese ship from Sierra Leone sold 53 slaves to Spanish Planters on the Cuban shipAmistad.

On July 1, 1839, the Africans seized the ship and demanded to be sailed back to Africa.


Instead, the captain misdirected the ship to Long Island, NY, where the slaves were arrested.

The Amistad Case went to the Supreme Court, with 74-year-old former President, John Quincy Adams, defending the Africans.


Adams stated, “By the blessing of God, I will argue the case before the Supreme Court,” and writing in his journal, October 1840:

“I implore the mercy of God to control my temper, to enlighten my soul, and to give me utterance, that I may prove myself in every respect equal to the task.”

Francis Scott Key offered Adams advice. Adams shook hands with Africans Cinque and Grabeau, saying: “God willing, we will make you free.”

Wining the case, JQA, known as “Old Man Eloquent,” had argued:

“The moment you come to the Declaration of Independence, that every man has a right to life and liberty, an inalienable right, this case is decided. I ask nothing more in behalf of these unfortunate men than this Declaration.”

In Cuba, a Creole farmer began a revolt in 1868 for racial equality, freedom of speech and freedom of association.

Spain killed thousands putting it down in the Ten Years War.

A Royal decree finally ended slavery in Cuba in 1886.

In 1895, another rebellion began and Spain sent 200,000 soldiers to Cuba.

Tens of thousands were put into concentration camps where they suffered from starvation, disease and exposure.

Yellow Press journalism excited the American public, who demanded President William McKinley intervene.

The U.S.S. Maine was sent to Havana, and on FEBRUARY 15, 1898, it blew up in the harbor under suspicious conditions, beginning the Spanish-American War.

President McKinley approved the Resolution of Congress:

“Whereas the abhorrent conditions which have existed for more than three years in the island of Cuba, so near our own borders, have shocked the moral sense of the people of the United States, have been a disgrace to Christian civilization,

culminating, as they have, in the destruction of a United States battle ship, with 266 of its officers and crew, while on a friendly visit in the harbor of Havana, and cannot longer be endured…

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives…that the people of the island of Cuba are and of right ought to be free.
