PROLIFE ISSUES

 

Abortion

Things have changed since 1973. Since 1973, many things in our world have changed. One thing that hasn't changed, however, is Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion. In light of what we know today, how can that be?

 

Stem Cell Research

Stem cell research is the most misunderstood life issue. Most people do not realize that stem cells can be obtained from numerous adult sources, umbilical cords and placentas -- without ending the life of a developing human being. Stem cells from human embryos are not needed for stem cell research to continue.

 

Euthanasia

We have failed if our solution to suffering is to kill those who are suffering. We believe that accepting these forms of intentional killing reflects a complete disrespect for the dignity of each person and for each person's right to life.

 

Adoption

In the interest of protecting human life and offering women in crisis pregnancy situations viable alternatives to abortion, we fully support the option of adoption. In supporting this, we realize that adoption will not be the choice of every woman facing a crisis pregnancy, but it is a choice that should be available in her decision making.

 

Fetal Development

Every new and unique human being begins his or her new life at the moment of fertilization and if not interrupted, will some day grow into an adult man or woman.

 

Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood began in 1916 with one birth control clinic opened by Margaret Sanger. Now, Planned Parenthood offers international services, encouraging the use of abortion to solve “health” and “social problems” in America and third-world countries.

 

Post-Abortion Syndrome (PAS)

Post-Abortion Syndrome or PAS is a form of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Symptoms of PAS may occur immediately following the abortion, but may also develop years later or come to the surface around the anniversary of the abortion, the expected due date of the baby, and major holidays and celebrations.

 

Infanticide

Infanticide has a long history, and several cultures have routinely practiced it for several reasons including birth control, to destroy handicapped individuals seen as unfit and to kill female children because of cultural preference for males. While Infanticide is currently considered a much bigger taboo than abortion in America is still takes place today in the U.S. and in other countries around the world.
