Georgia Leading the Fight for Personhood

 

THOMASVILLE — Georgia is a good place to live — especially for fetuses.

A recent poll suggested that 57 percent of likely Georgia voters want Roe v. Wade overturned. Roe v. Wade is the controversial 1973 Supreme Court ruling that established that most laws against abortion violated a constitutional right to privacy under the liberty clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, thus overturning all state and federal laws outlawing or restricting abortion that were inconsistent with the decision.

There have been more than 52 million legal abortions in the United States since Roe v. Wade became the law of the land.

Michelle Bachman: 100% Prolife

Republican
Candidate Michelle Bachmann: “I am 100% pro-life.”

jillstanek.com

I am 100 percent pro-life.
I’ve given birth to five babies, and I’ve taken 23 foster children into my
home. I believe in the dignity of life from conception until natural death. I
believe in the sanctity of human life…

And I think the most eloquent words ever written were those in our
Declaration of Independence that said it’s a creator who endowed us with
inalienable rights given to us from God, not from government. And the beauty of
that is that government cannot take those rights away. Only God can give, and
only God can take…

And the first of those rights is life. And I stand for that right. I
stand for the right to life.
The very few cases that deal with those
exceptions are the very tiniest of fraction of cases, and yet they get
all the attention
. Where all of the firepower is and where the real
battle is, is on the general — genuine issue of taking an innocent human life.
I stand for life from conception until natural death.

~ Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-Minnesota) stating
her pro-life position during the GOP 2012 debate hosted by CNN
as quoted by LifeNews,

Gov. Mike Huckabee Endorses GA Senate Bill 529 and Asks Georgians to Call Their Georgia House Members

Lawrenceville, GA – Today Governor Mike Huckabee announced his support for SB 529 in a message that is going out to Georgia constituents asking for their support for SB 529. Governor Huckabee noted the importance of this bill, “SB 529 is a simple bill that prevents a woman from being forced to have an abortion against her will and prohibits the use of abortion as a means of race or gender discrimination. I’m asking you to support SB 529 and to ask your representative to support SB 529.”

Two weeks ago the Georgia Senate passed SB 529 with overwhelming support. On Tuesday, April 13, 2010, SB 529 had a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee, but no vote was taken.

SB 529 was drafted by some of the leading pro-life attorney’s in the nation and was reviewed positively by the American Center for Law and Justice, Liberty Counsel, the Thomas Moore Law Center, Americans United for Life, and Focus on the Family.

SB 529 has also received support from the Georgia Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Color People (NAACP), the Georgia Chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), Dr. Alveda King, of King for America, and other prominent Georgia ministry leaders in the African American community.

“We are grateful for the support of Governor Huckabee and other national and state leaders both in the faith community and in the African American community who see why we have to do more to protect women from being forced to have abortions against their will,” stated Dan Becker, President of Georgia Right to Life.

Becker also noted, “We need the help of every Georgian to get this bill passed. We have to let our representatives know that in Georgia we belive that discrimination is wrong in the womb and in the workplace.”

Georgia Right to Life (www.grtl.org) promotes respect and effective legal protection for all human life from its earliest biological beginning through natural death. GRTL is one of the numbers of organizations that have adopted Personhood (www.personhood.net) as the most effective pro-life strategy for the 21st century.

Georgia Senate Passes SB 529, Coercion and Prenatal Non-Discrimination Ban

March 26,2010
Contact: Catherine Davis 770-339-6880

Lawrenceville, GA – Today the Georgia Senate passed SB 529, a bill which would ban abortion in cases where the woman was coerced against her will into aborting her child. It would also ban abortion for gender selection, as well racially discriminatory abortion. It passed by a vote of 33 yeas and 14 nays. Senator Chip Pearson was the sponsor of SB 529 which is the Senate version of House Bill 1155.

Besides seeking to address the issues of coerced abortions and abortions performed because of the race, gender, or color of the child, the bill provides enforcement of the existing law regarding the Women’s Right to Know. The bill also gives the women who have been coerced the opportunity to bring suit against abortionists who violate Georgia Law.

“According to the CDC, of the 38 states that report, Georgia is currently leading the nation in abortions in the black community. African-Americans make up 30% of the population and 59% of the abortions. In 2008, according to the Georgia Division of Health, 18,901 abortions were performed on black women. SB 529 seeks to protect these women and their children, from making decisions they did not want to make,” said Catherine Davis, Director of Minority Outreach at Georgia Right to Life.

“No child should be aborted because of his or her race, sex, or color. If it’s wrong to discriminate in the workplace, in housing and in education because of race or sex, it should be wrong to discriminate against a child because she was born the wrong sex,” noted Dan Becker, President of Georgia Right to Life.  “It would appear that even pro-abortion advocates share this perspective” said Becker, “Hillary Clinton, U.S. Secretary of State, recently stated, ‘Unfortunately with technology, parents are able to use sonograms to determine the sex of a baby, and to abort girl children simply because they’d rather have a boy.’”

The timeliness of this policy debate is evidenced by last week’s edition of The Economist magazine and its featured cover story, “Gendercide: What Happened to 100 Million Baby Girls?” No less than four articles address the issue of gender selection abortions.  They noted, “For those who oppose abortion, this is mass murder. For those such as this newspaper, who think abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare”, a lot depends on the circumstances, but the cumulative consequence for societies of such individual actions is catastrophic.” “We agree.” said Becker.

This bill now moves to the Georgia House.

A Clarion Call to Clergy: One Black Pastor’s Response to Black Genocide in Georgia

by Pastor James Leak III, MA

Executive Pastor New Harvester International Ministries (N.H.I.M)

“Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet”  (Isa 58:1, New International Version) was the voice from within me.  A range of emotions from righteous indignation to bewilderment engulfed me as I watched the documentary “MAAFA 21”, and the apparent link between eugenics (the study of hereditary improvement of the human race by controlled selective breeding) and the systematic abortion of black babies by Planned Parenthood, formerly called the American Birth Control League (ABCL). At the conclusion of the documentary, I felt a call to action.

Studies of the shift in the abortion demographics from 1974 until 2004, and the purposeful location of abortion clinics in minority communities, corroborate “MAAFA 21’s” claims that black babies are a target of black genocide.  According to a 2008 Guttmacher Institute study (ironically, Guttmacher  was a eugenics supporter as President of Planned Parenthood between 1962-1974),“Although abortion rates have declined among all racial and ethnic groups, large disparities persist, with Hispanic and black women having the procedure at rates three to five times the rate of white women.  In 2004, there were 10.5 abortions per 1,000 white women ages 15 to 44, compared with … 50 per 1,000 black women. That translates into approximately 1 percent of white women having an abortion in 2004, compared with … 5 percent of black women.” A Life Dynamics website reveals that Planned Parenthood operates the nation’s largest chain of abortion clinics and almost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.

A review of biblical history shows exploitation of the poor by leaders and elected officials to be nothing new. The U.S. government’s funding of Planned Parenthood’s diabolical plans invites God’s wrath upon our nation: “The leaders and the princes (elected officials) will be the first to feel the LORD’s judgment. … You have taken advantage of the poor… (Isa 3:13-14, New Living Translation). As a minister of the gospel, I am compelled to defend the poor from deceptive racism, and protect the innocent unborn in the womb. One of the sins that the Lord clearly hates is the shedding of innocent blood (Prov. 6:17, King James Version), which clearly fits the bill of abortion.

As ministers for the minority communities there is a two-fold strategy that we must employ to combat this genocidal atrocity; a preemptive one and a redemptive one. A preemptive strategy has three components:

  1. Preach and teach abstinence until marriage to our members. Rid ourselves of soft messages absent of sexual purity. No longer should we adopt the weak mindset of using condoms under the fallacy of “people are going to have sex anyway.” The Scriptures admonish us to flee fornication (1 Cor. 6:18).
  2. Teach black men how to take responsibility for their families. Most families today are headed by unwed mothers.
  3. Elect public officials who believe abstinence to be the most effective way of unwanted pregnancies. If there are no officials who believe our standards, we should pray harder for them, train up our own, or give no rest to our eyes until those in office begin to listen.  No longer should we give in to apathy.”Woe to you who are complacent in Zion, and to you who feel secure…”(Amos 6:1, NIV)

A redemptive strategy has two components:

  1. The church should embrace the theology of pure religion, that is, we must care for orphans … and refuse to let the world corrupt us (James 1:26-27, NLT). A movement of adoption of unwanted babies should be promoted. Once these children enter the world, they will need our loving support.
  2. Lobby the state and national elected officials to protect the innocent unborn and defund Planned Parenthood. As taxpayers, we are unwittingly funding the annihilation of the innocent.

National Black Leaders Join Georgia Legislators to End Ugliest Form of Racism: Abortion

Lawrenceville, GA – In 2008, blacks made up 30% of the population but over 57% of the abortions in Georgia. Today national black leaders gathered at the Georgia State Capitol to join a bipartisan group of black and white Georgia legislators to call for an end to the disproportionate levels of abortion in the black community in Georgia.

“Black children are aborted at three times the rate of all other populations. Georgia leads the country in the number of reported abortions performed on black women, 18,901 in 2008 alone,” Catherine Davis, Director of Minority Outreach for Georgia Right to Life reported.

Dr. Johnny Hunter, President of LEARN noted, “The civil rights activists did not fight to make lynching safe, legal, and rare. They ended it. We must fight to end the ugliest form of racism: abortion.”

Hunter also noted, “More black children die every 4 days from abortion, than the Klu Klux Klan killed in 144 years.”

Dr. La Verne Tolbert, former board member of Planned Parenthood stated, “Abortions increase where clinics are located and where are those clinics located? Ninety-four percent of the clinics are located in urban areas where blacks reside. In my own neighborhood which is an African American neighborhood in California, there are three abortion clinics strategically located all in the same area.”

On Tuesday, Representative Barry Loudermilk introduced bipartisan legislation that targets this very issue. The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, HB 1155, makes it illegal to knowingly perform, solicit or accept funding for either race- or sex-selection abortions. This bill is based upon existing federal legislation in the 111th US Congress.

“In Georgia, you cannot fire or hire a person based upon their race or gender. If discrimination is wrong in the workplace and in schools, those same standards should be applied to who enters this life and who doesn’t. No child should be kept from entering this world based upon their race, color, or sex,” said Representative Loudermilk

Dr. Johnny Hunter stated, “All the civil rights gained in education, voting,  and equal job opportunities mean nothing to a dead black child.”

Catherine Davis noted, “HB 1155 will not victimize or harm women, but will hold accountable those who would perform, solicit, or coerce an abortion because of the race, color, or sex of  the child. We must stop the exploitation of these women and their children.” 

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr. commented, “I commend Rep. Loudermilk and the other legislators for ending this last bastion of racism. Abortion is the civil rights issue of the 21st Century.”
