Women's Rights

According to the PBS article by Gretchen Frazee (, Terry O’Neill, the president of the National Organization for Women, said that the January 22 March for Women’s Rights is about “women’s rights that are very much imperiled by the policies President-elect Trump appears headed for.”

What are the N.O.W.’s goals for this year? According to Terry O’Neill:
  • stopping the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (health care)
  • protecting women’s rights to abortions
  • preventing the privatization of Medicare
“Organizers of the Women’s March on Oklahoma, which is expecting more than 2,000 attendees, have more specific policy goals in mind. ‘Our three main policy directives fall under health care, women’s economic empowerment, and domestic violence,’ said Lindsey Kanaly, the march’s lead organizer. The group wants to boost the percentage of women in the Oklahoma legislature, for example, stop lawmakers from passing laws restricting abortions, and reduce the state’s female incarceration rate, which is the highest in the nation. ‘Regardless of who takes office every four years in Washington D.C., there are some real things here in Oklahoma that need to change,’ Kanaly said.”

I was told that some pro-life feminists were actually turned away from the March for Women’s Rights and told they weren’t needed. Let’s not kid ourselves: the women’s rights agenda is pro-abortion. Yes, there are other issues on the table, but mostly the March and the agenda for the N.O.W. is all about “women’s health care,” which is code language for unlimited abortions for any age, at any time, and at any stage of pregnancy.

Most women are in favor of equal pay for equal work, for ending gender discrimination in the work place, and for the freedom to have important careers. Those laws are already on the books!

Most women agree that domestic violence and human trafficking must end. Laws to empower and protect women in these situations have been made, and more needs to be done. We need more awareness and more accessible help lines and safe houses for girls and women.

But, this March for Women’s Rights is mostly about encouraging abortions. It’s about paying for the murdering of children with our tax money. It’s about funding for all kinds of killing children—selective abortions, partial-birth abortions, killing embryos in the name of science (as well as just trashing them), infanticide, and even selling baby body parts in a horrible new business.

N.O.W.’s Terry O’Neill said in an interview with U.S. News,  “Abortion, no less than contraception or any other aspect of reproductive care, is a common and essential aspect of women's health, which helps prevent the heartbreak of women dying from complications of pregnancy and childbirth.”

Most statistics that I saw said that the death rate during or after childbirth is between 17 and 18 mothers per 100,000 births. While the death rate has risen in recent years, and no one seems to know why, it is still relatively non-fatal to have children. I figured out the percentage, and it is 0.017%.

Statistics from (originally published in that “The risk of death associated with abortion increases with the length of pregnancy, from 0.3 for every 100,000 abortions at or before eight weeks to 6.7 per 100,000 at 18 weeks or later.” Let’s not forget that each abortion also involves the certain death of one or more human beings besides the mother. We should also take into consideration the guilt and trauma that many women experience post-abortion.

That “women’s rights” would include freely slaughtering babies seems past belief. That feminists would actually promote abortion and say they’re proud they killed their own children is more than I can fathom.

The Bible has strong language for even accidentally causing a miscarriage: If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine (Exodus 21:22).

One of the Ten Commandments clearly states, Thou shalt not kill (Exodus 20:13).

And there’s this poignant verse: Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee (Isaiah 49:15).

God’s Word tells us that children are a blessing. They’re important.
  • He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD (Psalm 113:9).
  • Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward (Psalm 127:3).

My heart goes out to some of my friends and to others who have had abortions. No one knows like they do the damage they suffered and how much they sorrowed over losing their children. (One friend confided to me that, ever since her abortion, she’s had dreams of a faceless baby.) Thankfully, there is forgiveness and healing for everyone in Jesus Christ.

My heart breaks for the between 54 and 58 million babies killed by their mothers since the Roe v. Wade decision. These children never had the opportunity to voice their opinions. They never  knew their mothers killed them, either. These babies never had any rights, because their "personhood" and their lives were taken away.

I genuinely feel sad for those who take pride in being "Nasty Women" (their term, not mine) and actually promote "guiltless" abortion. I feel sad for those who used vulgar language and threats at the March for Women's Rights. They don't know what it's like to feel valued and loved, to be feminine, and to enjoy being a woman as God designed them. I feel sorry for them.

Women’s rights? Freedom?

Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
And the servant abideth not in the house forever:
but the Son abideth ever.
If the Son therefore shall make you free,
ye shall be free indeed (John 8:34-36).

I don’t know about you, but this is the kind of freedom I want!
