Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.
NOTE: A video of this article is posted at the bottom of this page if you would rather watch than read, but please review this page for its many other videos and web links that lead to various pro-life ministries!
On 9-11 nearly three thousand people were killed, almost 2600 of these in the towers, at the World Trade Center, by as few as 19 terrorists. It was a horrific event that left our nation numb with grief, as the world looked on with shock and despair. It was a terrible day that will live on in infamy – a day of evil that was plotted and planned in the minds of a few, that left devastation and ruin in New York City in 2001.
Those 19 souls are accountable for the deaths of their victims, unless they repent.
It was a thrusting strike into the American heart from the blade of Islamic ideology that views this nation as ‘the Great Satan’ and declared that ‘Allah is Greater’.
Imagine for a moment if you will, if that attack happened again the next day in Washington DC. And the next day in Seattle, Washington; and again in Boston, Massachusetts; and again in Chicago, Illinois; and again in Dallas, Texas – –
What if such an attack happened on American soil, every day, seven days a week, for 46 years? From 1973 until today? How much carnage would we be talking about? Obituaries would have how long a list of names of the deceased?
Not 3000 dead, but over 60 million! That’s almost 8x the entire population of New York City in 2001!
But this morbidly terrifying statistic is no mere fiction.
It is a reality; the reality known as abortion. Only this is not a plot created by a dozen or so terrorists who pledged themselves to Allah, for the glory of Islam.
This plot is conceived by millions, tens of millions, who offer up these pre-born human beings in the name of sexual freedoms, pleasure and freedom from “being punished with a baby” as President Obama stated, for ‘the glory of self’ – for ‘the glory of choice’. The ancient pagan nations did these same things in the name of Molech, the ancient god sexual pleasure and child sacrifice.
If you were to take these 60 million unborn babies at the average age of 5 months in the womb, measuring about 10-12” in length, and line up the bodies from feet to head, you would have enough corpses to stretch back and forth across the length of the United States four times!
These doctors, nurses, counselors as well as mothers and fathers are accountable for the deaths of these victims, unless they repent. And if they repent, there is forgiveness at the cross of Christ: they are guilty of murder – but so is everyone who hates another, according to the words of Christ (MATT 5:21-22; 1 JOHN 3:15). As terrible and serious a sin as abortion is, the blood of Jesus is able to wash it away (1 JOHN 1:9). The ONLY sin the LORD is not able to forgive is the one that is not repented of.
We must as heralders of Christ, proclaim His coming Judgment and Kingdom, warn the lost souls of this world that there is such a Day coming; if we are faithful watchmen, we will so warn them and by doing so, be relieved of any responsibility:
When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
25 And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. 26 Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. 27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
This attack on pre-born Americans is done not with a sword but with scalpels, scissors and forceps. And these are killing not just the babies, but in some instances, their mothers (or sterilizing them so that they are incapable of ever having babies again); killing not just the heart of America, but its very soul!
Let’s not forget that this war is a spiritual war long before it’s a political or cultural war. If we obtain victory spiritually first, the others will follow:
2 CORINTHIANS 10:3-5
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Over 95 percent of the abortions performed today involve women who simply do not want to have a baby. Less than 5 percent of abortions are for the reasons of rape, incest, or the mother’s health at risk. A child is conceived in the womb, and is later murdered, simply because the pregnant woman chooses to do so.
On January 23, 2019 Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York has signed into law, the Reproductive Health Act. There certainly is nothing healthy about this for the baby!! And perhaps even for the mother: there are justifiable links between abortion, particularly third term abortions and breast cancer.
Cuomo said. “With the signing of this bill, we are sending a clear message that whatever happens in Washington, women in New York will always have the fundamental right to control their own body.”
A baby’s DNA, brain waves, blood type, fingerprints and so much more are distinctly their own, and completely different than their mother’s. A pregnant woman is comprised not of one body but of two – any talk about “right to control their own body” is no right to control the body of another, even a baby in their own womb where life and death are concerned.
Thunderous Applause—We Can Kill Our Children at 9 Months – by Shane Idleman.
A video interview on FOX News with pastor Shane on his above article (6 min 19 sec):
Let’s remember that our bodies, like our minds, souls and spirits were created by God, and He has placed these things in our stewardship, to care for as God intends. We belong to our Creator and are not free to do with ourselves anything we would wish, like committing fornication or suicide or aborting a baby.
Satan delights in the killing of human beings because we as God’s creatures, we belong to the LORD our Creator – we were made in His image, thus to slaughter human beings is a transgression that Satan relishes:
PSALM 106, beginning in vs. 6 states:
6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly. And in vs. 19-21, 19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image. 20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass. 21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;
And then we read the following:
35 But [they] were mingled among the heathen and learned their works. 36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. 37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, 38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.
We talk about air pollution and land pollution and noise pollution, but the greatest and most devastating pollution of all is blood pollution – and America is stained red with it “from sea to shining sea”!
The idolatry of sexual pleasure in this nation and the world at large is a tribute to Molech. I spoke previously at church about the Josiah Mandate; here was a king in Israel that was faithful to the LORD, faithful as none other since the days of King David. He swept away all the idols, all the altars, all of the false worship and worshipers, and restored the name of the LORD for the people to worship. I admonished the saints to seek their hearts and find anything that would replace JESUS or even compete for Him as the Number One Love in their lives.
Now I’m asking the saints to seek the ruin of this false god in the lives of the unsaved in our fallen nation; that they would turn to the true and living God in repentance and salvation!
Let’s not forget that this war is a spiritual war long before it’s a political or cultural war.
We turn now to pastor Rusty Thomas, founder of Operation Save America:
Pastor Rusty’s young son, now deceased, Jeremiah used his last days on this Earth in his continued stand against abortion – read his story here!
A human baby as with all living souls belongs to GOD Almighty!
Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
God is as well acquainted with every human infant, every human embryo, every human zygote, every human divided cell in mitosis as a real person just as He is with every single breathing human being on the face of this planet.
5 Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. 15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Thine eyes did see my substance yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
Because every baby is a creation of God Who has given to each, their own body, mind and personality, gifts and abilities that manifest as they mature in life, as well as a purpose and a part to play in this world, therefore each life is precious and must be safeguarded, not just by parents, but by just government whose sole purpose is to safeguard the lives of ALL of its citizens, whether adult, young person, baby or pre-born – all human beings.
Our government in the Public School System has had an active interest in promoting evolution, which teaches that humanity is an evolved animal – no different than any other animal, but whereas humans are reproducing and found everywhere, such animals like the bald eagle, or the sea lion, and other endangered species are in need of preservation.
That’s why some people see no problem with aborting babies but will fight to “save the whales”. Evolution, as we know is a lie, it’s evil and abortion is only some of its evil fruit.
Since 1973, abortion was legalized, and we now have government endorsing and enforcing the so-called ‘right’ of the legal murder of human beings. This is where the laws of our nation are opposing the Law of God – and we must make our stand with God and with righteousness!
Planned Parenthood started out as The Birth Control League (founded in 1923), whose founder Margaret Sanger had this to say regarding adultery and the murder of babies and her view of marriage (1st of 12 quotes from this web site):
1) “[Our objective is] unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children… [Women must have the right] to live … to love… to be lazy … to be an unmarried mother … to create… to destroy… The marriage bed is the most degenerative influence in the social order… The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
– Margaret Sanger (editor). The Woman Rebel, Volume I, Number 1. Reprinted in Woman and the New Race. New York: Brentanos Publishers, 1922 (emphasis mine).
(25 mins, 6 sec):
What many may not realize is that her beliefs of birth control, eugenics, population control, evolution, and others all stem from her convictions as an occultist, specifically of Theosophy: The Population Control Agenda – Beyond Birth Control: by Dr. Stan Monteith
Now let’s have a look at the statistical facts of fetal development of a pre-born human being, from conception to birth.
Let’s not forget that this war is a spiritual war long before it’s a political or cultural war.
This is not to say that we shouldn’t fight this war politically – we should, and we must. Nor are we to ignore the cultural war, but unless we win this war in the spiritual realm first, we cannot hope to win this war in the cause of Christ politically or culturally.
IN ABORTION AND COMING JUDGMENT By Geri Ungurean
So, what can be done?
I’m making it a mission this year to pray, throughout the year, as I did six years ago, that God would grant a ‘hunger for holiness’ in His church. We know that those who hunger and thirst for righteousness will be filled (MATT 5:6). I think the same thing can be said for holiness then. If the church is holy, then the church will be disciples of His Word – in practice as well as in doctrine; if the church is holy, then the church will be a praying church.
For an excellent source on prayer, check out The Complete Works of E.M. Bounds on Prayer!
From the Spiritual Warfare: Armor of GOD series, check out ALL PRAYER and SUPPLICATION.
If the church is holy, then the church will be a preaching church, declaring boldly without compromise the Gospel of the LORD Jesus Christ!
If the church is holy, then the church will be standing for righteousness, in defense of those who have no voice to speak on their own defense.
If not the church, saints, then who will do this? Who can truly do this as true representatives of the LORD, but the body of Christ?
Would you pray with me this year – and fast – for the LORD to instill in us a holiness that will burn brightly, like a city on the hill, for all the world to see? So that we will be salt and light (MATT 5:13-6; If for medical or dietary reasons you can’t fast from food – you can fast from television, social media, a favorite hobby – anything that takes valuable time, sacrifice it and spend it in prayer instead)?
Spread the word to others – may we make this a year of national mourning and rend our hearts with weeping and contrition, pleading to God for His hand to move on this nation.
What else can be done? Get Effective Ammo
We need to get informed: there are excellent resources that we can get – as mentioned before, the ministry of Operation Save America, videos, blogs, articles and, has many good books, booklets: such as FIELD MANUAL FOR ABORTION MINISTRY BOOKLET, ENDURANCE IN THE BATTLE BOOKLET, OFFERING OF CAIN BOOKLET, KINGDOM LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE MANUAL, ABORTION VIOLATION: AMERICA’S PREMIER NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE.
On that site, there are also T-shirts that exhibit the pro-life stand.
There is the American Center for Law and Justice that has long endured in this battle for the unborn.
See also: Petition to sign by ACLJ.
Also, The Human Coalition – and particularly their resource page: with such posts as How Can I Defend the Pro-Life stance in the Public Square and what you can do in contributing to the cause of saving babies lives by providing answers to those with questions or objections.
Also Save the Storks – theirs is a unique ministry with their Save the Storks buses that invite pregnant women inside and lend assistance, counseling, and materials to show just how precious a life it is that they are carrying. 4 out of 5 women who board a Stork Bus choose life for their baby it states on their web site!
What else can be done?
Financial contributions to any of these is an obvious method of adding your voice to others in this war, whether contributions are made individually or as a part of ministry support from the church budget. One person might not be able to give $50, but ten people could give $5. And that’s $50 more going to the cause then before those ten decided to give. And we have an Almighty God Who can take such offerings and with His blessing, multiply their effects!
Letters to our political constituencies – and voting those who are pro-life into office.
And what else can be done?
Taking It To The Streets! This is the rather scary, intimidating part – because you will remember, that this war is a spiritual war – we are not merely engaging militant women who ‘shout out their abortion without apology’ and select law enforcement personnel who favor the abortion position over pro-life position. You are engaging in the principalities and powers – these “devils” that have glutted on the blood of over 60 million babies for well over a generation and are not about to be deprived of these sacrifices – this is EPHESIANS 6:10-18 warfare at its highest! Yet Jesus is still LORD!!! He always has been, and He always will!!! HE WILL LEAD US, WE WILL FOLLOW – and VICTORY shall be found in HIM to the saving of souls!
That’s why I highly recommend pastor Rusty Thomas’s booklets Field Manual for Abortion ministry and its companion book Enduring In the Battle!
It’s vital that when we deal with people on this intensely volatile issue, we maintain our integrity as true ambassadors of Christ (2 COR 5:20), exhibiting His holiness and godliness in word, in conduct and in every way that brings honor to His Holy Name. We must never resort to vitriol or hateful speech towards people. We must display righteous anger only on behalf of the LORD, as well as grief and mourning. We are still in the age of grace – the time of judgment is yet coming, wherein the righteousness of God will be fully manifest.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
When – not if – we take this to the streets, we will do well to understand our legal, Constitutional Right to protest – what we are allowed and not allowed to do according to the law of the land. If we are to engage in this ministry, then those who are called to the streets will need to become very familiar with all of this.
To learn more about engaging the culture of death with the light of God’s Holy Truth and the truth about abortion, we can learn much from Jeff Durbin who has been committed to this ministry for some time: END ABORTION NOW.
Here is a youtube video (1 hr,16 mins) by Jeff where he is Overcoming Pro-Abortionist Arguments:
Watch this powerful message given by Pastor Jeff Durbin on overcoming these types of arguments as well as overcoming the common arguments given to oppose ministry at abortion clinics.
A RATIONAL CASE AGAINST ABORTION – (a portion of the article is quoted below; for the full article, click the link) from CARM.org:
What is growing in the womb of the woman is alive.
Even one-celled creatures are alive.
What is growing in the woman is more than a one-celled creature.
The nature of the life is human.
It is the product of human DNA, therefore it’s nature is human.
Because it is human in nature, if left to live, it will result in a human baby.
Humans are humans not because they have a feet, hands, walk vertically, and speak, etc. They are humans because of their nature.
A person born without arms and legs is still human.
A person who cannot speak is still human.
A person in a coma, helpless, unaware, unmoving, is human.
What is growing in the womb does not have the nature of an animal, a bird, or a fish. It has human nature.
To abort the life, which is human in nature, is to kill that which is human in nature.
Therefore, abortion is killing a life which is human by nature.
Where, then, does the mother get the right to kill the human within her.
~ OBJECTION 1 -THE LIFE IN THE WOMB is not human because it is not fully developed.
This disregards the fact that the nature of the life is human life. It has human DNA and is alive. How can its nature not be human if it is alive and has human DNA?
This asserts a false premise that someone is not human until he/she is fully developed. A four year old is not a fully developed human adult, nor an adolescent for that matter.
~ OBJECTION 2 – WHAT CONSTITUTES FULL DEVELOPMENT? One hour before birth or one hour after? Is there really a difference?
Then when did the natures change? When did the non-human nature develop into a human nature?
At what point does it become human and by what criteria do you make this judgment?
If you cannot decide when, then you are risking killing a person.
The human tissue (heart, lungs, blood vessels, etc.) produced in the woman is the property of the one who produces it.
But if what is growing in the womb is a person, it cannot be owned. That baby is its own person.
Is the life in the womb property like a cat or a dog that can be owned?
Then when does the child stop being the property of the mother? At birth? At one year old? Two? Ten? Twenty?
It is animals who are owned, not people — unless you want to reintroduce slavery.
If the tissue is not human, but just an organ like the stomach, it belongs to the one in whom it dwells.
But, the stomach is meant to be a stomach. The life in the womb is meant to be a person. They are different by design and nature.
They are different in nature, because the stomach does not have the ability to become a human.
But a human has the ability to produce a stomach.
Therefore, being human encompasses its own body but is not defined by it.
~ OBJECTION 3 – THE LIFE IN THE WOMB is really part of the woman and the woman has the right to do as she wills with her body.
If it is part of the woman then does the woman have 4 arms, 4 legs, and 2 heads? Is that what a human is?
It is part of the woman only in the sense that the life is living and growing inside the mother.
Her body is feeding the life. Her body is separate from the life.
The life growing in the womb can even have a different blood type than the mother. It is, therefore, an independent life with human DNA.
Not so. The Law says the woman (and man) do not have the right to take illegal drugs into their bodies.
The reason is that it supports illegal drug trafficking and…
It harms others who the user seeks to support his/her habit as well as the harm that can come to another because of the actions of the one under the influence of drugs.
~ OBJECTION 4 – IN ABORTION, NO ONE IS HURT since the fetus is not a person.
This is simply begging the question. You assume it isn’t human, even though it is alive and has human DNA, and then pass judgment that it is not a person.
The fetus is alive and death ‘injures’ it. Permanently!
The fetus has the nature of a human and is injured by killing it by scraping, ripping, and/or sucking its brains out as late term abortions are sometimes done.
Then that means the mother has no feelings about the life that has been removed from her womb, that wonderful place that only a woman in her nature has.
Does this really leave the woman uninjured? Countless women are psychologically harmed when they kill the child in their womb [some are even left sterile after the procedure, or when having another child, often it doesn’t go full term and is born with physical problems].
~ OBJECTION 5 – RAPE IS A CONDITION that justifies abortion.
Rape is horrible. But why should the child pay for the sins (wrong doing) of another? The baby is innocent of the offense and his life need not be taken because of the act of another.
If what is in the womb is human, then killing it because of the act of another would be wrong.
~ OBJECTION 6 – TO RESTRICT A WOMAN’s RIGHT to choose is to deny her rights as a woman.
This is a self-centered reason. It ignores:
That the life in the womb is human in nature.
That the woman has a responsibility to protect and guard life.
That it puts the woman’s personal interests and comfort above the value of life of the baby.
That it is not denying a woman’s rights anymore than she does not have the right to murder, steal, or lie.
Rights come with responsibilities. Choosing to kill another is a great responsibility that needs to be taken seriously. This is why we have trials.
However, in the womb, no trial is necessary, just the desire of the mother.
~ OBJECTION 7 – THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE in the world.
Since when does the value of human life depend upon how many people there are? Besides, if the number of people is the issue, maybe they should start getting rid of the sick and old. Maybe they should get rid of those who aren’t intelligent or good looking. Where will it stop?
~~ A QUESTION FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN ABORTION: and that the life in the womb is not human. Is it okay, to take a fertilized egg between a man and a woman and place it in the womb of a dog?
If you say no, then why? If it is not human then it doesn’t matter, right?
If you say no because it will become a human then you admit that it has human nature and is alive. If it is human in nature and alive, then you do not have the right to abort it.
If you say it is alright, why is it okay?
~ end of CARM article
And will we all be called to the streets? Some of us certainly will; perhaps others will later as relief help? But this isn’t for everyone – however the stand for righteousness and the opposition against the murder of babies is absolutely something every believer in Christ should be involved with in some capacity!
If you’re not called to the streets, you could still share information with women you know, who are contemplating abortion – at the work place, the laundromat, across your neighbor’s fence, at the bus stop. We can all of us carry some materials and a list of web sites that help defend the lives of the defenseless – and remember, prayer is essential, whether you are addressing a hundred or ten or just one!
Along with the call of praying throughout the year for the LORD to grant His church a Hunger for Holiness remember this date as well:
FEBRUARY 23rd – A NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING – Christians will be gathering together at Albany, the Capital of New York State to pray and stand against abortion: Christians rallying around the nation to Stand in Solidarity with the Unborn
The classic work on speaking against abortion was accomplished years ago by Ray Comfort of Living Waters ministry – a video production simply called:
180 – Changing Minds About Abortion One At A Time

Will We Succeed In This War?
It’s with a certain degree of angst that I admit that we probably, outside of a direct intervention and miracle straight from the throne of God, will not see national abolition of abortion. We do see abolition in Arkansas and Alabama, some promising developments in other States. We must continue to pray, State by State!
We are praying for such a national miraculous intervention – from sea to shining sea! Nineveh repented at the preaching of Jonah – will America? Who truly knows but God?
However, if we turn the hearts of people in regard to abortion so that it saves the lives of their children, that is a victory for that child!
We are accountable though, whether successful or not, to stand faithfully for the LORD to speak to this generation on the murder of these unborn human beings. Noah was faithful to stand for GOD – but no one other than his family climbed aboard the ark. God said that Noah was a righteous man.
Jeremiah preached throughout the time of Israel’s judgment from the LORD, pleading with the people to repent – but no one, no one did! Yet GOD ordained Jeremiah as His prophet and approved of His ministry! The LORD rewards according to faithfulness more so than success.
Even if there is a national reversal of abortion so that it becomes illegal in all fifty states, we still won’t be out of the hot water of God’s impending judgment against this nation! There are still 60 million souls slain unlawfully – murdered by choice – that we as a nation need to get our faces in the dirt and repent for! This is to say nothing of all of the other national sins that we are committing, like unlawful homosexual marriages, to the wholesale profane publications of pornography, to the horrific transgressions of human and especially child trafficking!
This is why we the church need to pray earnestly for our nation, for public officials, for our states, cities, towns and neighborhoods!
The Spark That Ignites the Flames of Persecution?
As the battle lines are drawn and each side intensifies their stand, could this contest between good and evil, light and darkness, be the very thing to bring persecution to the church of the LORD Jesus Christ here in America? We know that those who live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution; but we need not fear persecution: The LORD told us:
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. 13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Let us commit to this spiritual war and pray and seek God’s face: this verse is directed to Israel, but I think there is some applicability to the church today as well:
2 CHRONICLES 7:14
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
May the LORD bless and empower us in this effort as we seek boldness to stand for righteousness we continue this war where JEREMIAH THOMAS, son of pastor Rusty and Kendra Thomas of OPERATION SAVE AMERICA left off, before the LORD called him Home at the young age of 17 years. Read his last letter to his generation and to America at large, here.
