One of the largest abortion clinics in Oregon has opened in Portland. "...this new one is right on the edge of the African-American community..." stated the director of Oregon Right to Life, Gayle Atteberry. Now why would that be important? Why would the ideal location of the largest abortion clinic in the state be next to the African-American community? Are they expecting more Black women to murder their unborn babies than other racial groups? If having an abortion is the new best birth control device and if it is so chic, then why not build it right down town so all the tourist visiting the city may see it?
Since 1997, Oregon has allowed assisted suicide through the "Death with Dignity Act".
Both of these actions are between the person and God. Only Jesus can forgive sin. The government has no business being involved in this business..the business of abortion and suicide.
Whether you agree with either or not, the consequences of the choice made by the individual will not be born by you or me, or rather should not be born by us, but we know that isn't the case.
A botched abortion resulting in a handicapped child will result in assistance in some form or fashion, usually coming from the state or federal coffers. Someone wishing to die who can't, and must remain on life support, may tap dollars from the same coffers, even if the money comes through a different fund or agency.
In the end, the dollars come from the federal level, appropriated money, borrowed from the Federal Reserve with the Promise to Pay, on the backs of the tax payers.
"...$300 million-plus that federal taxpayers deliver annually to its major player, Planned Parenthood." -- Bob Unruh Report: Taxes prop up 'dying' abortion industryI am not for government funded abortion or assisted suicide. If someone wants to pay out of their pocket, and they can find a doctor willing to do it, then the blood is on their hands. It is none of my business. It is between them and God.
So now, if you are planning a vacation and want to see the sights in the Pacific Northwest, and you just happen to be inconveniently pregnant, visit Portland, in the use to be God's Country state of Oregon.
