"It's a "quintessential sacred cow," he added, and the pro-choice side is deeply concerned about suppressing research that could undermine the presuppositions upon which that "sacred cow" is so fragilely constructed. As Jacobs says, it is the phenomenon that social scientists call "identity protective cognition" that leads to human beings deliberately obfuscating and avoiding the search for truth."
"The mystery of lawlessness is already at work." This quote by the Apostle Paul is revealing. Abortion, ANTIFA violence, transgender delusion, and all the rest of the Leftist lunatic "sacred cows" makes me scratch my head. Another quote: "Professing to be wise, they became fools." Truth (and scientific truth at that) is a poison pill to them so they "suppress the truth in unrighteousness."
95% of biologists worldwide is pretty overwhelming. The other 5% must be extraterrestrial spies who don't believe unborn humans are really human.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Carl: excerpt from, " " https://tinyurl.com/y67hylyk As far as I've seen, the Republicans have not come up with a plan to support women for the high cost of giving birth, something they should be demanded to help these women out
You're right, birthing costs have skyrocketed. Billions of women in the past had kids for free. If you were to compare birthing a baby to abortion both could involve a certain amount of money but only one would repeatedly result in the death of a human being.
And that is the bottom line, isn't it? Some people take a laisez faire attitude toward the life of strangers while elevating the value of their own. Jesus says, "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Mat 16:26)
What will you give in exchange for you soul, Jim. Would it be the same value as the soul of a baby? What price does Jesus put on the souls of mankind? Suffer the little children to come unto Christ to be blessed and fulfill their destinies.
Jim, why can't you liberals see the absurdities of so-called reproductive rights?Reproduction is fundamental to all life. All life survives by reproduction. Most sane humans get that; except a few foolish hypocritical humans. All they want is just the sex; without consequence. The big consequence of sex without reproduction leads to unfettered genocide and ultimately extinction. And they have the nerve to tout the evolutionary trope "survival of the fittest" and yet deprive themselves of progeny. That is truly unfit.
I agree with Rand Paul. Republicans have had multiple opportunities since Trump's election to defend PP. However, I don't think they are merely cowards. Some are Manchurian candidates disguised as Conservative.
This is happening on our watch! Our generation and the generations that follow have allowed this gender seducing abomination to infect our children. Science, again, is clearly on our side. However, we are totally ignorant on how to battle the enemy in spiritual warfare. Instead of complaining, we should get on humble knees and repent (with fasting and mourning) and pray that this stronghold be confronted with an even stronger response from the heavenlies.
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. (Mat 4:1)
And immediately the Spirit cast him out into the wilderness. And he was there in the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the Adversary, and he was with the beasts, and the messengers were serving him. (Mar 1:12-13)
Now full of the Holy Spirit, Jesus returned from the Jordan, and was being led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being tempted by the devil for forty days. And he ate nothing in those days, and later, after they were completed, he hungered. (Luk 4:1-2)
And you will remember all the way which Jehovah your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, to prove you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments, or not. And he humbled you and allowed you to hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, neither did your fathers know, that he might make you to know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of Jehovah. (Deu 8:2-3)
Seems good and natural for a child to hesitate when a Father presents them with a tough test. Remember the Son in Gethsemane?

Thanks Frank for the empathy. Pray that my heart is not so turbulent concerning this issue as to fall into despair. But I don't seek peace of mind; peace of mind is impossible when the innocents are being murdered. To me, those who have peace of mind concerning abortion have become callous in heart. I echo the martyrs in Revelation 6:10 who cry "How long, O Lord..."? There the cry is against the despots who had taken it upon themselves to murder those who are Christ's witnesses. But here, in the states and territories of the U.S. it is the people who are to blame; mothers, fathers, those who have sworn to uphold both the Hippocratic Oath and the Constitution.
In Ezekiel 9:4 only those who mourned against the evils done in Jerusalem were given a life saving mark. Even the pleading of the prophet did not stop the LORD's judgment against the people of His beloved city. How much more will America be held accountable by Him?
I will not dare to hope. I am so exasperated. The NC House failed to overturn the veto of our Governor on our Born Alive Bill (requiring doctors to provide life saving care to infants who survive an abortion). Only 3 Democrats broke the party line and we needed 5 more. The Senate overrode the veto by 1 vote and it was provided by 1 courageous Democrat. I wrote him a letter of thanks and encouragement.
My exasperation comes in knowing that many who say in polls that they are pro life are liars. For example, the great majority of Blacks say they are pro life and yet, that 1 courageous Democrat in the NC Senate was the only one who proved that he was pro life. And on the House side only 2 of the 26 Black members voted for life. They seem content with nearly half of our conceived race being aborted.
Of course, the Born Alive Bill had nothing to do with stopping abortion but caring for the life of the baby that survived the abortion. Clearly, the mother has forfeited what legal right she had over the child once the infant was free of the mother and the umbilical cord was severed. It should be the state's duty to care for any human being struggling to survive. Clear as day? Not in these hypocrites eyes and consciences.
"Pro-abortion rhetoric is starting to sound like the antebelleum defense of slavery"? is a vast understatement. As evil as slavery was to my ancestors and is still prevalent today in many forms with many races and classes it is still an evil at least a level or two below mothers murdering their unborn. And to call the newly conceived "parasites" and hype and promote abortion as "good" reveals what a mind that has become shipwrecked is like. Case in point, Sarah Jones calls abortion "morally good." A former evangelical? If she ever was.
Many of the sci-fi and fantasy books aimed at teens and middle schoolers are filled with lesbian and homosexual sexual encounters. And those libraries that promote clandestine meetings of adult homosexuals with children without knowledge of their parents should be not only exposed but taken to court.
Because of this, God gave them over to dishonorable passions, for their women exchanged their natural functions for what is against nature. Likewise, the males also left their natural function with women and burned in their lust for one another. These were males who did with males what is indecent, and who received in themselves the penalty that was due their perversion. (Rom 1:26-27)
I see the penalties given by governments as cautionary to avoid the more severe penalty given by God. If left unchecked homosexuality not only leads to the self-destruction of the individual but to their families, cities (Sodom), and eventually entire nations. I still remember the tragedy of the married lesbians hating their lives so much that they drive off a cliff in California with their adopted children inside. Or the men with HIV who purposefully infected both men and women. Righteousness exalts a people, not shameful acts cloaked in the mantle of tolerance.
Somehow legal precedence based on an immediately lie and false testimony seems totally illogical to me. Of course Rove vs Wade need not only to be revisited but overturned. Its like The Emperor's New Clothes. After the kid has pointed at the emperor and boldly proclaimed the obvious "He is naked!" then which of the emperor's counselors and advisors are going to come up with a strategy where his government can admit their error and save face?
I believe if an honest legal presentation based on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, medical testimonies, and biological and anthropological sciences then the humanity of the unborn would be clearly defined and established. Once that it out of the way then all that remains is how should all past abortions declared as legal should be classified and viewed concerning those who participated in them? But going forward after abortions are again declared illegal what should be the consequences concerning those who continue to perform and participate in them even to the point of traveling to other countries to have it performed? How should abortifacient drug and devices be regulated and administered?
We should not be so naive to not believe that the majority of youth in our denomination has not been poisoned by the same wormwood as these eight teens have. This immoral indoctrination is being taught today in nearly every school as normal, good, and moral. Anything that goes against it is hate. The Way that leads to Life is too narrow.

So... if we Black people would pay attention to the wisdom of Candace Owens only then would you take notice? Does this mean that you are listening to Candace, Jim. If not, maybe you should. She has much to teach you and all America, not just us Blacks.
I give no praise to Satan, but his scheme to wipe out the human race is diabolically brilliant. He and his angels have duped mankind into not only cursing themselves but wiping each other out; not through war but through "medicines" and scalpels.
Dolores, you are so correct in your analysis. The whole world will soon have Japan's dilemma; not enough youth to service the old.
Many of the young women in my city would rather get a Fido (dog) or a Tom (cat) rather than marry and have a progeny. They consider giving up "free" sex more costly than having a baby. The irony is that more older women are having babies because they regret the selfishness of their youth.
Jim, your comparing abortion and alcohol is a non sequitur when it comes to prohibition. Procreation is the natural order of life. It is unnatural to artificially interrupt a pregnancy. Now it may be prudent to do so if you want to get rid of mosquito larvae or some other infestation. We are not vermin and are not manufactured.
My Goodness, Jim you are talking about people, your natural brothers and sisters; even yourself. Don't you value your life and the life of others? God does.
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them." (Eph 2:10)
"But if Thy brother is grieved with Thy food, now walk Thou no longer according to love. Destroy not him with Thy food, for whom Christ died." (Rom 14:15) (the sense here is selfishness and pursuit of personal pleasure at the expense of someone else's life)
Oh, and you may have forgotten that our Constitution and Bill of Rights does not support the rights of the majority but of the minority. And there is no such thing as abortion in "moderation."
