  1. It makes no difference how you look at it or Define the law of many different ways and find a right to give abortions which abortion clinics is like a massive business it's a big money-making business Corporation but no matter how you look at it a baby inside the womb or outside the womb is a living soul and basically when you destroy that fetus you're destroying a life so actually you're sacrificing a child to the devil and committing murder at the same time most lame brain thinks it's okay to give abortion because they don't feel the need to be burden but they don't mind to take time out to have fun under the covers

  2. "Peoples of the earth, you have hated life, you have polluted My garden! Diseased and awful generation, you have destroyed the garden! And so I am come to cleanse, and to wipe away! I am come down, My face is very near! Do you feel the heat of My wrath, O ignorant and vain peoples?! You retain no knowledge at all! Only greed and wickedness, wickedness upon wickedness, passes before your eyes without ceasing, and oh how you love to have it so!
    DEAD GENERATION, YOUR HEARTS ARE STONE! Day after day you build up wrath, the vessels overflow! Day by day, the bodies are stacked up in heaps! Day by day, the unborn are slaughtered, whole generations of people murdered without cause, multitudes of innocent cast off as refuse! Yet you think Me too harsh, and My punishments too severe, My judgments unfair.

    All you see, from the ground beneath your feet
    To the farthest reaches of the universe, is MINE,
    And I shall do as I please!…
    I shall do according to the counsel
    Of My own will,[2] for I am God!

    Therefore, O peoples of the earth, because you have slaughtered the innocent and murdered your neighbor, lo, you have even made for yourselves laws that all may do their pleasure in unrighteousness and perform evil at their leisure, so then shall I also declare MY Law, and it shall fall hard upon the backs of all nations! Yea, I have put forth the decree and hasten to carry out your sentences, O peoples of the earth!
    And what is the sentence, you ask?… Look upon the slaughtered innocent! Look upon their torn and broken bodies; behold how they are torn in pieces! See how their blood pours down and their limbs are strewn about! LOOK! Look how they are scraped out of their mother’s womb! Look upon the works of your hands, you evil and most wicked generation! LOOK UPON YOUR WICKEDNESS! LOOK UPON ALL YOU HAVE DONE!

    Thus says The Lord God, Creator of Heaven and Earth: Because of this blood which remains on your hands, because of all the multitudes of slain you have piled up in heaps, because of the evil works of your hands in where you have agreed together, to both do and allow them, to make them law, THUS SHALL I IN LIKE MANNER DO UNTO YOU! IN LIKE MANNER SHALL YOU RECEIVE AT MY HAND!
    Lo, even double shall you receive at My hand, and double again, until there is no place found that is not laid waste, until every land is polluted by the stink of rotting corpses! Both man and beast shall lie down in death together; they shall be as refuse upon the land! I shall tear down your cities and break apart all your dwelling places! I shall tear your leaders in pieces and pour out the blood of your mighty men upon the ground, until it reaches unto the neck![3]
    Behold, all mighty and evil men shall be torn in pieces, with their limbs strewn about in the open fields and in the waste places![4] Behold, the great army, the astonishing company, the assemblage of nations who have come together to fight against The Holy One of Israel,[5] shall be broken in pieces without hand! For strong is The Lord, and sharp is the sword which proceeds from His mouth![6] Behold I, even I, The Lord of Hosts, shall scrape every last vestige of man and his inventions from the earth at the last day! For I am God, and the glory of My strength is revealed in My Holy One!

    The glory of men must die!
    Declares The Lord of Hosts,
    The Only Creator, The God of Israel…
    Hurry now, those who hear!
    Hurry now, those who know Me!
    Hurry and kiss The Son![7]
    Hurry now and kiss Me upon My face,
    All you who know My name!…


    "Thus says The Lord God: Woe to Dallas! Woe to the City of Innocent Blood! Woe to the nation not desired!…
    Day by day, the bodies are piled up in heaps! Day by day, the unborn are slaughtered in droves, because of you! Whole generations of people murdered without cause! Multitudes of innocent cast off as refuse, BECAUSE OF YOU! Fill up then, the measure of the sin of your fathers! Yes, add to your iniquity, that I may also add to you all that which I have purposed in My heart to do! Behold, I shall greatly trouble you, causing nature to rise up and fight against you! I shall leave your people desolate and bring you to utter ruin! Says The Lord.

    Behold, all shall fall and crumble
    Before The Lord, in His anger!
    It shall be shaken down, it shall no more stand!…
    All shall crumble under the weight of My fury,
    For all your forsaking of Me, and for all this blood
    Which remains on your hands!…
    Says The Lord."


  3. Many people with careers in the field of science have refused to move to Texas for work because of the anti-abortion bill. If the bill stands, Texas would become an anti-intellectual theocracy

  4. Dr. Braid, you are a hero. Such bravery to stand up to such a totalitarian law. Such integrity to do what’s right for your patient even when you know there will be consequences. I deeply admire you for not letting the dictators seize control of your patient’s body and performing the necessary procedure. I hope your heroism is what overturns this ban!

  5. If a person selfishly refuses to try to raise a child, there are thousands of people out there desiring to adopt. Instead of murdering an innocent baby, why not give him and other people a chance to have a loving family?

  6. If you disagree with abortion, then go stand in line at an adoption agency. Half a million children in the foster system waiting for pro-life families to adopt them. The foster system is already over burdened, not enough pro-life families willing to help. It is estimated that nearly one out of every four prisoners and seventy percent of prostitutes came out of the foster system. Many are homeless the moment they’re adults. If you truly love children, then if you’re going to force them into a potentially brutal life, then you ought to advocate for an increase in welfare to help pay for them as well as begin adopting.

  7. If 500,000 average Americans from all states, pro choice people, filed lawsuits, 1,000 lawsuits in each of 500 different courts throughout Texas, the entire justice system in Texas would be paralyzed for 3 years. It would cost the state of Texas $1 billion or more.

    The plaintiffs don't have to go after the defendants for a significant sum of money, or even care if they win or lose, necessarily. Pro choice groups could raise money to pay the lawyers on both sides, and/or pro choice lawyers could work pro bono, for both sides.

    The Texas legislature would put an end to the law, and no U.S. state would ever try another stunt like this again.

  8. The concept of bodily autonomy has always been an alien concept to many Americans. Just look at how prevalent infant circumcision is in their country. Infant circumcision is clearly a violation of bodily autonomy and yet many of them still support the barbaric practice. I hope Americans would wake up and realise that. Bodily autonomy is for all gender.
