Until I had done the research for this article, I was personally not aware that the Dilation and Evacuation (D & E) was the one that utilized the poison injected directly into the heart. This procedure has been performed on many mothers for some time.
Ultimately, when considering the numerous forms used today to kill unborn human beings, it is clear that there is no “simple” or “painless” way of aborting children. Yet, in our society, we grieve more for convicted murderers who may experience some measure of pain while being put to death than we do for innocent unborn human beings who – through no choice of their own – were either conceived or murdered. They did nothing wrong to deserve their fate, yet unborn human beings are murdered while still in the womb every day in this country.
AB 6221 would do two major things. It would first – and this would have an immediate effect in New York practice – allow non-doctors to perform abortions. This would be done by repealing the section of the penal code that requires only licensced physicians to perform abortions. The bill sponsors say that it would still be limited to those “operating within the scope of their practice” so in practice this would be mean nurses, midwives, and physicians assistants. We’ve already seen a movement to actively make it so that midwives and nurses are performing abortions – http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/10/politics/california-nurse-practitioners-abortions/ – so this is continuing that trend.
It is important to understand first, that the “day of the Lord” (DOTL) often represents a span of time, not a singular day or one single event. We’ll look to Scripture in a moment to provide some examples. Note also that there are many different names for this period, depending upon the person called upon by the Lord to write a section of His Word. The phrase DOTL (or its equivalent) is used some 20 or so times in the Old Testament. Because of that, it is imperative to thoroughly research each usage to determine if/how they tie together.
The “day of the Lord” is another one of those subjects that people like to discuss and even argue over. For some, it means a certain length of time when the Lord will do a specific work. In that case, while it culminates in the return of the Lord on a specific “day,” the phrase “day of the Lord” includes other events as well. For instance, some believe that the Tribulation period begins the “day of the Lord” because we can clearly see from the opening of the very first seal in Revelation 6 (which also coincides with the beginning of the Tribulation period; see also Daniel 9:27), that the Lamb (the Lord) is in full charge and He is pouring out His wrath as He opens each of those seals.
This is the way the left plays the game. They do everything to make it appear that they are concerned for the health and well-being of the mother. In reality, they couldn’t care less. What they want – like all globalists and those who represent them – is to have control over the total population number. It’s not about caring about women. They simply make it sound like that. Eventually, they go the whole nine yards and grab it all because they want women to be able to murder their child even during a partial-birth abortion. If women die in the process, oh well. Who cares? These feminist lawmakers don’t care. People like Andrew Cuomo don’t care, because he simply needs to do whatever it takes so that he will be re-elected and he knows how important women’s “health” issues and “rights” are to retaining his seat.
The Tribulation will be a time of unparalleled evil and the persecution of Christians will be a daily experience throughout the entire globe, including America. God will use the 144,000 Jewish evangelists of Revelation 7 to be His messengers spreading the gospel far and wide. It is not coincidence that after the 144,000 are sealed, we read starting in Revelation 7:9 that there are multitudes of people became martyrs during the Tribulation.
I have to constantly check my heart and mind. It is so terribly easy some times to “hate” the sinner instead of the sin. I will admit it. I am not Jesus and I know that I do not love as He loved. Yes, He loved with words, but He also loved with actions and the way in which He responded to people after they treated Him like He was a piece of manure on the ground. I have to ask myself, how would I respond in such a situation? Do I love the lost enough to sincerely ask God to blot my name out of the book of life?
