Pregnant belly

The safest place on earth should be the womb. The Lord designed it to provide warmth, nutrition, oxygen and protection for the growth of new life.

Lately, however, I haven’t seen too many pregnant women in the stores, and very few newborns in little car seats. In pondering this, I began thinking of everything an unborn baby must go through these days. 

They face quite the gauntlet, including just coming into existence. A growing number of young people have no desire to marry or have kids. Birth control and morning-after pills are major challenges to a child ever being conceived.

Miscarriage is another difficulty, which increases when pregnant women catch Covid or receive the Covid shot.

Then there’s abortion. At any stage of pregnancy, a mother can change her mind and choose to have her son or daughter killed in the womb. Add to this the environmental hazards and everyday risks that can jeopardize an unborn baby’s survival. If they get around all these factors and are finally born, what a miracle they are!

But murdering our children for the sake of the environment, or any other issue, is pure evil.

It’s no secret that the national birth rate – including in Alaska – is in steady decline. How will this shape the next generation? Who will take care of the elderly? How will that effect our state and country as a whole – financially and economically?

Our schools and the mass media consistently claim that overpopulation leads to global warming. This further drives the anti-baby agenda, which asserts that the earth is unsustainable with so many destructive people on it.

After pondering this and discussing the overpopulation claim with many educated friends and family, I have come to conclusion that our population is not the problem. It’s our lifestyle.

I’m not even sure I believe in global warming. Yes, we can be very wasteful and destructive to the earth, but these problems can be addressed with basic changes in routine and lifestyle. A common-sense approach to natural resources, development and working with the environment can have huge positive impacts on preserving the diversity and health of the natural world.

It’s time to reassert the value life, protect the innocent, and stop the harmful indoctrination that endangers our unborn.

But murdering our children for the sake of the environment, or any other issue, is pure evil. God loves his people, and has plans for each one.

It’s heartbreaking to know that the place where humans should be safest – gently knitted together by God in the womb – has now become one of the most dangerous environments.

To truly promote all life, we must first end abortion. No one has the right to murder someone else, and we need to protect those who are innocent and cannot speak for themselves.

Additionally, we must address the way biology is taught in our schools. Teaching evolutionary theory, stripped of any reference to a Creator, has conditioned whole generations into thinking that humans are nothing more than randomly evolved bacteria – devoid of a Creator who loves and designed us.

Biology without a Creator also undermines the dignity of human life, which then affects how people relate to each other. If we are little more than intelligent monkeys living in a godless world, there are no morally binding rules – no absolute right or wrong.

It’s time to reassert the value life, protect the innocent, and stop the harmful indoctrination that endangers our unborn. If we don’t get it together, we will be the endangered species.

Let us start with love and compassion – not just extending it, but teaching it to our youth. They need to re-learn that human life is a beautiful gift to be cherished and protected.

We must also reach out to our wider community, either personally or through helpful organizations and churches. This can provide scared moms the comfort and security they need to defend their unborn baby. Finally, Alaska must pass – and enact – pro-life legislation as many other states have done.

It’s an uphill battle, but a critical one.

    Great article! I support Pamela’s views in this article. I to agree abortion is another word for MURDER. We do need to abolish this form of Murder. The global warming hysteria is just that. If you actually do the research the temperature has only raised .02 degrees in last 10 years if I recall correctly. That’s not enough to talk about. Keep in mind if it wasn’t fir global warming we wouldn’t be here having this conversation we’d still be under 5 miles of glacier ice that covered North America.

  • Gunter Thompson says:

    “I’m not even sure I believe in global warming”, yet you fully believe in a virgin birth and that the dead will live again.

    • Pamela Samash says:

      Yes, I absolutely do.
      When reading the old testament, hundreds of years before the birth of Christ, His birth and His virgin mother were mentioned over and over again. These are proven documents therefore predictions, long before the time He was born in humanity. The conception, birth, life, death and resurrection were all prophesied long before these events took place. People can pretend this didn’t happen, but the records were undeniable and they were meticulous at writing them accurately. It’s impossible to fake these writings. Christ’s birth and resurrection actually did happen and He is the only way to heaven as the final sacrifice to save us.

  • Jesse says:

    The 1st step to Tyranny is to take the rights from the unborn. If we are willing to take life from those who cant defend themselves, how long do your think your rights will remain intact.

  • Rich Eide says:

    If at first we don’t protect the unborn, what’s left to protect that’s important?

    ore than a few of this regime’s notable people quietly or loudly many millions in support of population control. Bill Gates, and his father, Dr. Fauci.. you look them up. The horrors of this day can be seen in a few clicks about ‘research’ and abortion at Univ. Pittsburgh. the request for “pristine” Baby calvariums , scalps attached for about $523. per, & tiny kidneys taken while child in the ‘canal’ are particularly horrific. Funding from NIH, backed by one Dr. Fauci… and on it goes unimpeded.

    PS: Abortion is the only ‘medical’ procedure in which the intended outcome is death. How did we fall so far?
