Choosing Children over Choice


Newest numbers on abortion show procedure at its lowest rate since 1974

Alan Guttmacher Institute (AGI) released new research on the number of children who never saw a birth day. An AGI survey of all known abortion "providers" in the United States brought some good news: The 2005 abortion rate-that is, the number of terminations per 1,000 women ages 15-44 was at its lowest ebb since 1974, the year after Roe, the Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion. The 1.2 million abortions performed in 2005 were the lowest total since a high of 2.6 million in 1990, and a signal that the number of abortion overall is still declining.

But 1.2 million DEAD babies is also bad news. Tragic news. America has had abortion going back probably to 1629, and a roller-coaster experience since then: a sharp rise in abortions in the mid-19th century, then a slow to rise to the 1950s. A sharp rise in the 1960s followed that. Then came Roe and an abortion skyrocket that peaked in 1990.

AGI, the research arm of Planned Parenthood, has chronicled the decline since then. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also tallies abortion totals, but AGI's numbers are considered more accurate because they survey both hospitals and all known stand-alone abortion clinics. The CDC relies on state health department reports, and some jurisdictions, such as California, don't report at all, creating a data gap of more than a quarter-million abortions, before the counting begins. According to AGI's latest report , released Jan. 17, the number of abortions in America declined 9 percent between 2000 and 2005. The last year in which the number of abortions was lower was 1976.

One big reason for the decline may be the growth of pro-life pregnancy resource centers lef by committed women and volunteers such as Wanda Kohn, WORLD MAGAZINES 2007 Daniel of the Year (see "Frontline dispatches," Dec. 15, 2007). Care-Net, the nation's biggest umbrella organization for such groups, has made development of urban centers a priority, and so has Hearbeat, another large group.

A constant over the centuries is the legal change has an impact on abortion, but cultural change probably makes even more of a difference. Abortion rose in the mid-19th century despite its illegality. In 1860, with the advent of large cities, abundant prostitution, and a substantial 19th-century New Age Movement ) then called "spiritism"), the United States in proportion to its population probably had as many abortions as it now had, perhaps 260,000 in a population of 30 million. (One big difference between now and then is that most mid-19th-century abortions occurred among prostitutes, who probably averaged four per year. Nevertheless, the overall number surprises many. Interested readers should see Abortion Rites: A social History of Abortion in American, a book based on a year of research at the Liberty of Congress.) The late 19th-century growth of abstinence movements, "rescue homes," and compassionate help, supported by stronger laws and tighter enforcement, reduced the incidence of abortion by at least 50 percent. Since 1990, the number of abortions has fallen 25 percent, and that trend should continue as abortion alternatives grow, protective laws (such as those requiring parental consent and waiting periods) become more common, and ultrasounds allow more parents to see their babies in the womb. - MARVIN OLASKY

Its good to hear that abortion numbers are dropping but it is still sad and shocking to hear the number of baby's aborted are still large. You can get more information and resources at Heart Beats. It is a great organization our church works with. So I leave with these verses.

Jeremiah 1:5
I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my spokesman to the word.

Psalm 139:13-16
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous - and how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

How to be illegal

Mexico government publishes guide to assist border crossers.

This old news from January 2, but I find this news new to me so I thought I would post it just in case you missed it like I did.

The government of Mexico is raising eyebrows with a new comicbook offering advice on how to cross the border into the U.S. illegally.

Called "The Guide for the Mexican Migrant," the 32-page book published by Mexico's Foreign Ministry uses simple language to offer information on safety, legal rights and living unobtrusively in America.

"This guide is intended to give you some practical advice that could be of use if you have made the difficult decision to seek new work opportunities outside your country," the book says, according to the Arizona Republic.

Illustrations depict illegals wading into a river, trying to evade U.S. Border Patrol and crouching near a hole in a border fence. Immigrants are also shown hiking through the desert with rock formations similar to those in Arizona and being caught by an American agent.


Among the tips offered:

  • "Try to walk during times when the heat is not as intense";
  • "Salt water helps you retain your body's liquids. Although you'll feel thirstier, if you drink water with salt the risk of dehydration is much lower";
  • "Thick clothing increases your weight when wet, and this makes it difficult to swim or float."

    It also says if migrants get lost, they should follow train tracks or power lines. It warns of walking for days to reach towns or roads in the desert.

    If caught by Border Patrol, the book says, "Don't throw stones or objects at the officer or patrol vehicles because this is considered a provocation. Raise your hands slowly so they see you are unarmed."

    It also recommends not running away from agents in pursuit.

    "It's better to be detained a few hours and repatriated to Mexico than to get lost in the desert," the guide states.

    The book includes a disclaimer stating it doesn't promote crossing the border illegally, but it doesn't give information about legal steps to seek a U.S. visa.

    Immigration-control groups are not thrilled about the guide.

    "This is more than just a wink and a nod," Rick Oltman, Western field director for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, told the Republic. "This is so transparent, this is the Mexican government trying to protect its most valuable export, which is illegal migrants."

    John Vincent, with Virginia-based Americans for Immigration Control, said, "It really looks like the Mexican government is encouraging illegal immigration. It shows the contempt that the Mexican government has for our laws."

    The Mexican consul general of Phoenix, Carlos Flores Vizcarra, said the reality is many migrants will try to cross the border illegally, and the book appears to be a means of protection.

    "This is nothing new. It's a way to put it in very simple terms so people will understand the risks," he told the paper. "The intention is out of concern for human rights. People are doing it anyway. We cannot ignore that there is a very big migration between our two countries, and people who are coming to work need to understand the risks."

    Humberto Morales, 22, is an illegal immigrant from Mexico now working as a day laborer in Phoenix, and says the guide seems to have a mixed message.

    "On the one hand they seem to be saying, 'Don't cross,' but on the other hand they are saying, Cross. - Article by World Net Daily

    Heath Ledger dead at 28

    Warner Bros., Focus react to tragedy


    Heath Ledger, who was found dead Tuesday in his Gotham apartment, had two outstanding projects: He plays the Joker in Warners’ upcoming Batman pic, “The Dark Knight,” and has a key role in “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” a Terry Gilliam pic that has been shooting in London.
    Principal photography on “The Dark Knight” finished in the fall; as of Tuesday, the pic is still skedded for a July 18 bow.
    The status of the pic’s marketing campaign, however, is uncertain. The first phase is built around the Joker and pics of his character are particularly ghoulish. Warner execs were still grappling with the news on Tuesday and had no comment on how they would proceed.
    “The studio is stunned and devastated by this tragic news,” said Alan Horn, president-COO, Warner Bros. & Jeff Robinov, president, Warner Bros. Pictures Group. “Heath was a brilliant actor and an exceptional person.”
    The 28-year-old Ledger was Oscar-nommed two years ago for “Brokeback Mountain.” This year, he appeared in “I’m Not There.”
    News about Ledger’s demise cast a pall over the celebratory mood at Warners, which received a slew of Oscar noms in the morning, and at Focus Features, which had scored a major Sundance deal earlier in the day.
    A Focus rep said the specialty label, which had close ties to the thesp from his role in “Brokeback Mountain,” was in shock over the news, and CEO James Schamus, who produced Ang Lee's pic, issued a statement lamenting the loss. “Heath Ledger was a courageous actor, and a great soul,” Schamus said. “He gave us the gift of sharing his fearless and beautiful love — of his craft, and of all who worked with him — for which all of us will be eternally grateful.”
    In Gotham, a crowd of several hundred media members, looky-loos and bereft fans gathered late Tuesday afternoon outside the apartment building on Broome Street where Ledger’s body was found. The actor had been living in the Soho neighborhood since splitting last year with partner Michelle Williams.
    Flashes from paparazzi and cell phone cameras lit up the building’s narrow fa├žade next to the Nanette Lepore clothing boutique next door. As a lone policeman guarded the entrance, several people stood on window ledges across the street to get a better view of Ledger’s body being wheeled out on a gurney.
    The “Dark Knight” rollout will present more than a few challenges en route to opening weekend. One poster shows the Joker character drawing a clown’s smile on a mirror with red lipstick and scrawling the words, “Why So Serious?” Tagline was also used to launch a Joker-centric website that the studio used to bow new photos from the pic and a viral scavenger hunt, among other games.
    “The Joker character is dealing with chaos and life and death and a lot of dark themes,” one insider with knowledge of the campaign said. “Everyone is going to interpret every line out of his mouth in a different way now.”
    Born in Perth, Western Australia, Ledger came to America after several small roles in Australian films. His role in Aussie pics “Blackrock” and “Two Hands” drew some attention, but it was “10 Things I Hate About You” that started his reputation as a teen heartthrob.
    He turned to more serious fare with “The Patriot” and “Monster’s Ball,” and appeared in “Ned Kelly,” “A Knight’s Tale,” “The Brothers Grimm” and “Lords of Dogtown.”
    After this diverse array of roles, he shot straight to the top when he was cast as a closeted gay cowboy in Ang Lee’s “Brokeback Mountain.”
    Ledger has a two year old daughter with Williams, who co-starred with him in “Brokeback Mountain.”
    He was set to appear in Baz Luhrmann’s “Australia” before dropping out to star in “The Dark Knight.”
    (Marc Graser, Pamela McClintock, Dade Hayes, Sam Thielman and Pat Saperstein contributed to this report.)

    Report by Diane Garrett from Variety.com

    This really saddens me. I was a big fan of Ledger and his movies except for Broke Back Mountain. But I couldn't wait to see him in the new Batman: The Dark Knight film coming out this summer. Now the movie will not be the same but yet I still cant wait to see Ledgers last work. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

    Is Mike Huckabee conservative?


    An Interview with the candidate on the eve of showdown contests by Marvin Olasky

    Some GOP Conservatives worry that a President Mike Huckabee would be like George W. Bush in domestic policy, not using his constitutional power to restrain government spending, and like Jimmy Carter in foreign policy, not using military power to restrain government spending, and like Jimmy Carter in foreign policy, not using military power to restrain anti-American forces.

    Despite big jumps in spending, President Bush did not veto any bills during his first six years in office. WORLD MAGAZINE asked Huckabee, "How will you hold the line against increased federal domestic spending?" He responded, "I will work hard to get a line-item veto that meets constitutional muster. My general philosophy will be to oppose creating new government programs....I will reduce the federal employees retire."

    Huckabee also emphasized the role of state government: "I will look to the states for innovations they have found in their 'laboratories of democracy' that we should adopt at the federal level, and I will look for areas where we can provide block grants to the states instead of expensive, detailed federal programs. Since states must balance their budgets, they know how to stretch taxpayer dollars more effectively than the federal government."

    One oft-cited conservative charge is that Huckabee would push aside individual preferences and demand a national smoking ban. WORLD asked him about that, an Huckabee responded, "I believe that regulation of smoking should be left up to the states. However, the issue is not banning smoking, but providing clean air for people in workplaces." That statement is a typical Huckabee turning of perspectives, from (for example) patrons of restaurants and bars to those who work there.

    On the use of military force, some Christians are pacifists who believe that Jesus' injunction to turn the other cheek is a universal commandment. The more common exegesis, though is that this refers to personal offenses but not to national policy concerning terrorism. Question: "When an adversary attacks us, should we turn the other cheek?" Huckabee's response: "Absolutely not, and we can't wait to be attacked, we must prevent attacks. In this age of terror, we must constantly be on the offensive to hunt down radical extremists who want to kill every last one of us and destroy our civilization."

    Some conservatives are calling Huckabee a "compassionate conservative" and equating that position with liberalism. WORLD noted that misidentification and questioned Huckabee about it: "Compassionate conservatism started out as a program to help the poor while decreasing the size of government by increasing the role of civil society. Bush administration spending led some Republicans to call it a euphemism for big government. What's your view of compassionate conservatism?" Huckabee responded, " I believe each of us has an obligation to give of our treasure, time, and talent, to help those less fortunate. However, I don't support trying to have big government substitute for individual and community responsibility. I don't view compassionate conservatism as 'big government,' but rather as encouraging individuals and groups to do more for those less fortunate, sometimes with help from government at various levels."

    He went on to say, "The most valuable thing the government can do for the poor is protect the opportunity created by our free-market economy, enacting pro growth policies that create jobs, make certain that every child has access to a first rate education, and adopt policies (like tax policies) that encourage marriage and the family. Much of the poverty in this country is in families headed by a single mother."

    Jonah Goldberg, a strident anti-Huckabee conservative, complained last week that Bush/Huckabee compassionate conservatism is "a political program that apparently measures compassion by how much money the government spends on education, marriage counseling and the like." He has a point, since the BUSH administration has regularly defended itself against charges of callousness by citing dollars of federal spending. One test of Huckabee will be whether he can explain better than Bush the alternative to both soft-headed liberalism and the hard-hearted variety of conservatism. - WORLD MAGAZINE

    Going Negative


    Are Christians unChristian?

    THE BARNA GROUP, A RESPECTED CHRISTIAN SURVEY organization, recently asked young people to identify which perceptions they most strongly associate with Christianity. The three most commonly agreed-upon were: anti-homosexual, judgmental, and hypocritical.

    Barna president David Kinnaman and co-author Gabe Lyons conclude in UnChristian (Baker, 2007) that Christians "have become famous for what we oppose, rather than who we are for." One can't dismiss these findings as the result of biased media or ignorant respondents. Most of those polled report knowing Christians personally, and a considerable, percentage have spent significant time in churches themselves. What's more, large portions of young Christians agree, and worry, explain the authors, "that the unChristian message has become one of self-preservation rather than one of world restoration."

    According to UnChristian, six negative themes infuse young people's perceptions of the modern Christian church: hypocrisy, treatment of outsiders as conversion targets, hatred of homosexuals, seclusion from the real world, over-politicization, and condemnation.

    The authors show that more Christians disapprove of homosexuality than divorce, and that many are unlikely to assist AIDS orphans despite Christian generosity to other causes. They also delve into the interviews that accompanied their surveys, revealing wounds that young non-Christians have received at the hands of those who call themselves Christian. Jeff, a 25-year-old interviewed for the project, put it bluntly: "Christians talk about hating sin and loving sinners, but the way they go about things, they might as well call it what it is. They hate the sin and the sinner."

    While the message of UnChristian is tough, it arguably could be tougher. Not only for the behaviors Kinnaman and Lyons document wrongly "brand" Christianity; it's equally true that hypocrisy and unforgiveness are wicked. Likewise, while Christian political activism sometimes spells, for outsiders, an interest in political power that doesnt seem matched by mercy toward the weak, it also leads Christians to support some political candidates whose views are clearly at odds with Christianity. In response to this woeful state of affairs, the authors exhort Christian readers to return to the biblical messages of love and mercy towards outsiders. "Would we be that different," they ask, "if it were not for God's grace?" - Article by Tony Woodlief

    I agree with this article full heartedly. What ever happened to Gods grace and mercy? We are suppose to be the salt and light of the world. After all Jesus didn't come to condemn the world. Yes we are all sinners and yes we are to turn away from our sins. But we are not perfect. The Bible says there are none that are perfect! And for a negative so called Christian who is a sinner just like you and me to stand up and preach hate and condemnation. You are suppose to feel convicted not condemned.

    Chuck Norris: McCain is just too old !

    Norris, who is actively campaigning for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said,"John McCain would put on a strong battle against Hillary, though I fear he would be crippled simply on account of the age factor (72 in August). If the presidency ages one at 3-1 year rate, one term could advance McCain into his 80s."

    And at a fundraiser today for Huckabee at his Lone Wolf Ranch in Navasota, Texas, Norris said, "I didn't pick John to support because I'm just afraid that the vice president would wind up taking over his job in that four-year presidency."

    "So we need to find someone that can handle it for four years or eight years ... that has the youth and vision and communication skills to make that work."

    Norris is 67, just four years younger than McCain who is 71.

    Huckabee, who turns 52 in August, distanced himself from Norris' remarks, according to the Associated Press.

    As much as I love Chuck Norris I have to disagree with him on this one. Look at Ronald Reagan. People said he was to old to run for a second term.

    Ronald Reagan, "I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience."

    "I Have a Dream......."


    "To be a Christian Without Prayer is no more possible than to be alive with out breathing."

    Super Bowl Picks!

    This is going to be an amazing weekend for Football. The two teams I pick to go to the Super Bowl are Easily The Patriots. We all seen it coming, arguably the best team in the history of the NFL. Then my second pick is The Packers. How awesome of a match up would that be. You have Brett Favre on the packers and you have Tom Brady on the Patriots side. That would make out for an amazing Super Bowl.

    Cloverfield In Review


    The Highly anticipated film Cloverfield came out in theaters today. I remember seeing the first trailer of this movie during a screening of Transformers back in the summer, I was hooked. I thought it was a trailer for another Godzilla movie so I did a lot of researching on the web to find out that it wasn't another Godzilla movie but I a different kind of monster. I soon found myself interested in all the viral campaigns on the web.

    Well I got to see the movie today and I was going to the theater hoping it would live up to all the hype. And it did! For those of who didn't know, this movie is captured all on a handycam to give it the feel that you are actually there like the Blair Witch Project. The first 30 minutes is about a bunch of 20 sum year olds putting together a going away party for there friend who got a job in Japan. Things are going well for the main characters. One of the main characters is making a documentary of this goodbye party until Hell crawls up out of the ocean to create havoc, hurling the head of the statue of liberty into the city. At that point things couldn't get any worse for the main characters but a bunch of surprised unforeseen things happen to them. You are thrown in to the mess by following these young adults in there efforts to rescue a friend and survive the elements.

    I love how this movie is from a cameras point of view. You go into the movie not knowing whats going on and it ends with you not knowing whats going on. It opens it up for endless possibility's. (A.K.A) Another movie. I know some people did not like the ending, but I did. It sets it up for another film. I wont go into to much detail about the characters and go ruin the ending but, New becomes a war zone and is practically destroyed. "ITS ALIVE, ITS HUGE!" They will make another one, I have no doubts about that, I think even the director wanted to make it a movie series like Godzilla. The question is will it be filmed with a handy cam or will it be from cinematic point of view that explains in more detail.....Until then I will be spending more time on the web to see what happens next.

    Pros & Cons:

    1. Effects: Good!

    2. Intense! : You will have a headache after viewing this movie.

    3.Characters and acting: Great! Very believable.

    4. What is the monster? Were did it come from? I would be rich If I knew that.

    5. I still don't know Why its called Cloverfield? I don't know maybe its the organization that made the thing by mistake. Who knows, this movie could get complex like the other projects Abram has made Such as the hit show LOST.

    9 out 0f 10 stars.

    The MONSTER: Below is a description of the Monster, if you don't want to know don't look below. What is this monster? Without ruining the movie for you the Monster is translucent Its body is a Pray mantis body with an extra two small t-rex looking arms on the side of its belly, long tail and a head that looks like a flat faced alligator, sharp teath, small black eyes.

    Stupid Voters

    People make me sooooo mad when it comes to voting. I was watching the evening news when they were talking about the New Hampshire primary and they were talking to undecided voters who were about to vote. All of them had stupid reasons as to who they are voting for. One of the many people said, "I didn't want to look back ten years later and say I didn't vote for a female president." That is absurd! What happen to voting for someone who you think can run this and represent this country to the best of there ability instead of looking at there race or sex! It makes me furious! We have to many important issues going on in todays world, illegal immigration, War on terror, Economy, Abortion, gas prices and the protection of the constitution. . . Think about it people! Do your homework on the candidates don't just randomly pick someone without knowing what there positions are. Stupid! Stupid! Stupid Voters!

    California Man Arrested for Digging 50 Holes in Bike Trail

    FULLERTON, California — Police said they arrested a man who acknowledged digging holes on a park bicycle trail in southern California as payback for nearly being run down by a cyclist.

    Warren John Wilson, 52, faces a single felony count of vandalism, police Sgt. Linda King said Friday.

    King said nearly 50 holes measuring about 1 foot by 2 feet (30 centimeters by 60 centimeters) have been found since June along a trail at Laguna Lake Park, and in some cases attempts had been made to hide them from cyclists. She said some riders went over their handlebars after hitting the holes, but none reported major injuries.

    Detectives watching the trails questioned Wilson, who said he had nearly been run over by a mountain bike rider and began digging the holes in retaliation, King said.

    Police said Wilson had been released from custody. A phone listing for him could not be found.

    Perdictions and Thoughts on the BCS Championship


    Hello my southern SEC fan Bee-Ouches who think high and might of there selves, thinking they are the Gods of Football! I have a some stats as to why I think Ohio State will win from some research!

    The Buckeyes own the advantage in the most vital stat, Yards Per Pass Attempt Differential. They are +3.1 to +1.7 for LSU, a decisive edge.

    The leader in that stat invariably wins the title game, including so-called upsets by Florida and Texas the past two years.

    The last team to lose who had an edge in that stat was the Canes in '02. Miami had a phenomenal +4.4 vs. a terrific +2.7 for Ohio State. Anyone who thought that Ohio St team couldn't play with Miami was a rank moron. A +2.7 team can play with anybody.

    Miami, of course, was a huge favorite, at -13. This time the team with the edge is a juicy underdog, nearly a TD.

    In other words, LSU's got a fight on their hands.


    Now, some of the standard caveats apply. LSU played in the more defensive-minded SEC. The Big Ten offenses aren't that great. Florida crushed Ohio State. Blah blah blah.! BS! All of that may be true but the gap in the numbers is significant and LSU's 1.7 seems to be a low figure for a supposed favorite.

    I wasn't quite sold on those numbers until I read an article on LSU's Matt Flynn.


    Matt Flynn is a mediocrity. In the end I think that's what will be LSU’s death. You don't start for the first time as a 5th year senior if you are special. Flynn averages a lame 6.7 YPPA, which is much lower than any national championship QB in recent history. I looked it up and every championship team going back 10 years averaged at least 7.8 YPPA. So Flynn isn't even close.

    Boeckman is right in the standard ball park, at 8.0.


    All kinds of bells start ringing in my head when I read that. Let's conclude with an offering from Heisman Pundit about what he calls the "Les Miles Handicap".

    With [Ryan] Perrilloux taking the snaps and handing off much of the time to Keiland Williams, LSU probably would've been a dominant 13-0 this year. Instead, Miles took the 'safe' route, playing Flynn and Jacob Hester on his way to an 11-2 mark that included several other close calls.

    Now, it could be that Miles will take full advantage of the speed and talent that is available to him when the Tigers play Ohio State in New Orleans. But it's probable that he will just go with what brung him to the dance in the first place--a not-so-dynamic duo that, frankly, is a better fit for the Big Ten than the SEC.

    If Miles once again decides to rely on these less-talented (though safer) options, I think the Buckeyes will win this one but it wont be a easy win.

    OHIO STATE: 28

    LSU: 25

    Enough said!

    Lack of Respect!


    The players are ready to blow up after being treated by the national media with a lack of respect. There is a true feeling that no one is giving them a chance in the game.

    Coach Jim Tressel gave the players a DVD to take home over the holiday break. The DVD contains clips from the national media beating up on Ohio State. Offensive lineman Alex Boone said that he's tired of hearing that the Buckeyes don't have a chance in the game. Running back Beanie Wells said that he's tired of hearing the team is too slow - not physical enough - they can't do this or that. .

    it happened in the basement of her Lakewood, Ohio, home while she was folding clothes. Boone had come home for Christmas break and had brought with him the DVD.

    "Nana, you got to see this,'' he said.

    So they walked down to the basement, turned on the big-screen TV, and inserted the disc into the DVD player. It didn't take long for Sulzer to quit folding shirts and start wiping away tears.

    Boone doesn't have the lowlights DVD anymore. He threw it out. But before he left Sulzer's house that day he made a promise to her.

    "Nana, it's going to be a different story this time, you watch,'' he said. "Don't worry.''

    Watch out LSU u are going be played a pissed of Ohio State looking for redemption from our last SEC game with the dreaded team down south called Florida! I will post my thoughts on why I think Ohio State will win once I type it up.
