A little over 58 million babies have been aborted in America since January 22, 1973. Few of us have any idea how many “anythings” 58 million is. Here’s something I did that might help us all to grasp the enormity of that number:
I opened a Word document. I typed periods across the top line, no spaces in between. I repeated the process until I got to the bottom of the page. When I was done there were 50 lines with 165 periods each, for a total of 8,250 periods filling the page.
Then I repeated the process, page after page, until I had 58,000,000 periods.
I wound up with 7,030 pages.
I then printed off all the pages. It took over 14 reams of paper (a ream is 500 sheets). The resulting stack was almost 30 inches high, about up to my waist.
As I sat gazing at that mind-boggling quantity of dots, like one who has for the first time peered through a powerful telescope at a faraway galaxy containing innumerable stars, it occurred to me that on those occasions since 1973 when the church has been used by God in any worthy capacity (and it has) it has been far more a case of Him using us “in spite of our unfaithfulness” rather than “because of our faithfulness.”
I later told a Christian friend about my little experiment. His first response was, “Dude, you just killed a bunch of trees there!”
Yeah. Trees. That’s the kind of “tragedy” we get worked up about.
“Wisdom is justified of her children.”
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” — John 10:10
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…” — Declaration of Independence
In the wake of abortion videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, Congress is debating defunding Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. The government provides 41% of all Planned Parenthood revenue totaling $528.4 million in 2013. That same year, Planned Parenthood reported that it performed 10,590,433 “total services” and 327,653 (or 3.1%) of those services were abortions. Opponents claim that Planned Parenthood’s business is as much as 94% abortion. What is the truth?
A bill that would allow a person to sue for the wrongful death of an unborn child under Mississippi’s wrongful death statute has passed in the House.
House Bill 1338 states, “Whenever the death of any person or of any unborn child shall be caused by any real, wrongful or negligent act or omission, or by such unsafe machinery, way or appliances as would, if death had not ensued, have entitled the party injured or damaged thereby to maintain an action and recover damages in respect thereof, or whenever the death of any person or of any unborn.”
House Bill 1338 was filed by Rep. Chris Brown of Aberdeen and passed 78-37. The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Mississippi’s 2012 law unconstitutional that would have required doctors that perform abortions in the state to be certified in obstetrics and gynecology and have admitting privileges in a nearby hospital.
While the same court upheld a law in Texas that had a similar provision, the court determined that, because the law would shutdown Mississippi’s only abortion clinic, it would create an undue burden on women by forcing them to travel outside the state to exercise “the established federal constitutional right.”
Gov. Phil Bryant says the state will appeal the ruling.

Travis Childers will be the Democrat nominee vying for the Mississippi Senate seat currently held by Sen. Thad Cochran reports the Washington Post in Democrat Childers running for Senate in Mississippi.
Childers, considered a conservative Democrat and “credible” challenger by the Huffington Post and Politico, represented Mississippi’s 1st Congressional District after winning the 2008 election but was unseated in 2010 by the current Representative, Alan Nunnelee (R). His campaign press release touts him as “pro-gun and pro-life” and he received the NRA’s endorsement during the 2008 campaign.
With incumbent Thad Cochran facing a tough Primary challenger in Chris McDaniel, energy could shift to Childers who is considered a long shot for the seat that is considered firmly in Republican control according to the Rothenberg Political Report ratings.
Pundits believe a McDaniel victory in the Republican Primary could seriously shift Childer’s potential for a victory in the November Elections. The Republican nominee will be determined in the June 3rd Primary Election.
As tweeted by Ya’ll Politics earlier today:
According to the Miss. Legislature website, House Bill 1400 was passed by the House February 13th while the Senate passed a revised version of the bill today.
During his State of the State address on 22 January 2014, Governor Phil Bryant (R-MS) announced the goal of ending abortion in the state of Mississippi. “On this unfortunate anniversary of Roe versus Wade, my goal is to end abortion in Mississippi.” According to CBS DC,
“Bryant did not propose any new restrictions on abortion, but he defended a law he signed in 2012, requiring hospital admitting privileges for anyone who performs the procedure. Mississippi’s only remaining abortion clinic, Jackson Women’s Health Organization, has been unable to obtain the privileges for its OB-GYNs, and filed a federal lawsuit in 2012 seeking to block the law. The clinic remains open, by court order, while the lawsuit is pending.”
After reducing the state’s unemployment from 9.4% to 8.3% during his first 2 years in office, Gov. Bryant listed numerous other goals in his annual speeach:
- Continue economic growth
- Improve public safety by hiring more State Troopers
- Make the prison system more efficient and effective
- Improve teacher performance and student test scores
- Lower the teen pregnancy rate
- Add “In God We Trust” to the state seal
