Humans Are Unique On Day One
We are unique day one: “Imagine for a moment if you will… imagine if we never had a Martin Luther King… What would our world look like? How would our world not have changed or shifted? Blessed and gifted we as humans are – to be entrusted with the gift to birth stars – stars of light and life.” What is it like to “conceive a dream — only to turn it into a nightmare?” “Imagine if your right to life was quickly snatched… All of your purpose, goals and aspirations — never to be hatched — but (instead) snatched.”
Everyone is Unique and Beautiful From Day One
The video (above) celebrates the uniqueness and beauty of every human life; every unique fingerprint; every skin color; every ethnicity. It celebrates the beautiful humanity of every single person that was ever born, and mourns the lives abruptly terminated in the womb. “You were hand stitched by God. God’s DNA is in us at the very moment of fertilization. You’re beyond fascination. There is none like you. Distinct. Peculiar. Unique.”
“Now imagine if all of who you are is suddenly extinct. You existed for a while, but now abruptly aborted.”
Produced by Spirit Juice Studios and narrated by spoken word artist Justus Dominic, the video asks viewers to ponder what would’ve been lost, if abortion had robbed the world of Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks or Mother Teresa. (Let’s not forget Benny Goodman.)
“Made in the image of God, we were meant to be fruitful and multiply. Instead, we subtract, divide and fractionalize, choosing who has the right to live and rise.”Justus Dominic in ‘Unique From Day One’
As Rebecca Kiessling said: “My value is not based on how I was conceived, who raised me, what other people think of my life, or even what I do with my life. I’m not a product of rape, but a child of God.” We are all made in the image of God – yet live in a broken world.
March for Life (sponsors of the video above) explain: “Being pro-life is not in opposition to science. It’s quite the opposite in fact! Medical and technological advancements continue to reaffirm the science behind the pro-life cause – that life begins at fertilization, or day one, when egg meets sperm and a new, unique, human embryo is created. When life begins and the stages of prenatal development are scientific facts. Humanity – and our uniqueness as individuals – begins at day one, at fertilization. Life, in its most vulnerable form, should be protected. We march to end abortion, with the vision of a world where the beauty, dignity, and uniqueness of every human life are valued and protected.”
March For Life 2019
Toxic Femininity, Toxic Masculinity, and Human Depravity
Why blame someone else? Why not admit we are part of the problem? The problems in our society are caused by everyone — which should lead us to conclude that we don’t suffer from toxic masculinity or toxic femininity, but universal human depravity. “Backstabbing, manipulating, gossiping, and other forms of relational aggression cause victims to suffer from high rates of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and profound loneliness and social isolation…” Viral videos and media mobs often spread hatred, gossip, misinformation and confusion.
As Kimberly Ross wrote recently in the Washington Examiner: “As campaigns against ‘toxic’ manhood continue in this #MeToo era, few people talk about ‘toxic’ femininity. Unfortunately, this is because the poison of modern-day [radical] feminism has convinced a malleable culture that masculinity should be denigrated. Somehow, eschewing half of society is how equality will finally be achieved.”
The Women’s March is Melting Down wrote Kelsey Harkness: “Despite its clever branding efforts, the Women’s March never represented women as a unified force... Not surprisingly… the [Women’s March] movement is falling apart.” Hate is not a sustainable force. At a different pro-women’s march called the March for Life, men and women took to the streets of Washington, D.C. by the thousands. “That’s because instead of marching for hate, the March for Life marched for love.”
The age old ‘blame game’ of Adam vs. Eve must stop. [Editor’s note: the Adam vs. Eve Epic Rap Battle viral video is so vulgar and disgusting we decided not to link it here.] There’s a little bit of Adam, Harvey Weinstein, and Gosnell in every man. Nonetheless, there’s a little bit of Eve, Jezebel, Salome, Cecile, Kamala, and Potipher’s wife in every woman.
We have all gone astray.
Adoption (Not Abortion) Is The Answer
Please Stop Abortion and Selling Baby Body Parts
The video camera doesn’t lie: The Center For Medical Progress (CMP) undercover video series caught Planned Parenthood’s top leaders admitting to selling baby body parts for profit in violation of federal law. On January 17, 2019, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals vindicated the CMP’s citizen journalism work by debunking Planned Parenthood’s smear that the videos were ‘heavily edited’ or ‘doctored.’ The Court ruled that Texas may strip Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer subsidies — finding that Planned Parenthood uses criminal partial-birth abortions to sell baby parts. It’s time for the U.S. Department of Justice to do its job and hold Planned Parenthood accountable to the law.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled (17-Jan-2019) that the state of Texas can strip taxpayer subsidies from Planned Parenthood — based on evidence found in undercover videos of the abortion provider’s involvement in harvesting and selling aborted baby body parts for profit. ~ As reported in The Federalist by Madeline Osburn
A report by Alexandria DeSanctis explains: the Fifth Circuit Court Ruling Effectively Dismantles Planned Parenthood’s Talking Points: At the time the videos were released, Planned Parenthood and its many defenders in the ‘pro-choice movement’ repeated ad nauseam that the videos had been ‘heavily [and] deceptively edited.’ This same line was often parroted uncritically by media outlets in their coverage of the videos. The Fifth Circuit not only affirmed the state’s right to terminate its agreement with Planned Parenthood affiliates, but also confirmed that the videos were undoctored. The court noted that “an independent forensic firm’s review of the undercover footage found that the video was authentic and not deceptively edited.”
Footnotes: The Indigenous People’s March — converged with high school students involved in the March for Life at the Lincoln Memorial (18-Jan-2019). Videos of this incident went viral and there was some controversy about what really happened. The NY Times said: “Additional video footage suggest that an explosive convergence of race, religion and ideological beliefs — against a national backdrop of political tension — set the stage for the viral moment. Early video excerpts from the encounter obscured the larger context, inflaming outrage.” Emanuella Grinberg of CNN provided another viewpoint. In addition, Reason Magazine said: The Media Wildly Mischaracterized That Video of Covington Catholic Students Confronting a Native American Veteran. Rod Dreher wrote about the controversial Catholic Bonfire after digging a little deeper into the story. It’s ironic that all this confusion happened in front of the Lincoln Memorial. It was Lincoln who said: “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here… It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated to the unfinished work … to be dedicated to the great task remaining before us.”
