Wordful Wednesday - On Murder

Medi-Cal records for more than 173,000 low-income California women who had abortions or gave birth in 1989. Linking these records to death certificates, the researchers found that women who had state-funded abortions were 2.6 times more likely to die of suicide compared to women who delivered their babies.

The study also found that women who have abortions have a higher suicide rate than women in general. In fact, giving birth reduces women’s suicide risk, the study showed.

Furthermore, women who have an abortion face a 248 percent greater risk of suicide, accidental death or homicide in the following year, according to a newly released 13-year Finnish study. The survey also found the suicide rate among women who had an abortion was six times higher than for women who had given birth in the prior year and double that of women who had miscarriages.

The study was conducted by Finland’s National Research and Development Center for Welfare and Health and published in the European Journal of Public Health. The researchers studied data from the years 1987 to 2000 on all deaths among women of reproductive age, 15 to 49.

While the risk of death among women who had given birth in the prior year was lowest, death from suicide, accidents and homicide was highest among women who had an abortion in the previous year. Women who had been pregnant had less than half the death rate of women who had not been pregnant. The risk of death for women who had suffered a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy did not noticeably differ from women who had not been pregnant.

The findings confirm other studies carried out in the United States, as well as Finland, that showed an increase in the death risk of women who have abortions.

In 1997, a government-funded study in Finland found that women who had abortions were 3.5 times more likely to die the following year than women who had given birth.

Furthermore, researchers looking at death records linked to medical payments for birth and abortion for 173,000 California women discovered there was a 62 percent higher chance of death for aborting women than delivering women over the eight-year period that was examined.

The study also found that the increase in the risk of death was from suicides and accidents. It showed a 154 percent higher risk of death from suicide and 82 percent higher risk of death from accidental injuries. The main author of the California study, David Reardon, said record-linkage studies like this one are key to getting an accurate picture of pregnancy associated mortality rates.

“In most cases, coroners simply have no way of knowing that the deceased recently had an abortion, which is why these new record-linkage studies are so important,” Reardon said.

Government health officials in Finland found in a recent study that 94 percent of maternal deaths involving abortion could not be identified by merely looking at a death certificate. This discovery applies to the data published by the Centers for Disease Control in the U.S.

Also, previous studies draw links between women who get abortions and an increase in substance abuse, anxiety, sleep disorders, suicidal thoughts, psychiatric illness, relationship problems and risk-taking behavior, which could easily lead to death by suicide or accident.

Beyond that, authors of the new Finland study suggested there might be common risk factors between having induced abortion and dying from accidental injury. They called on medical professionals to be aware of these risks.

“Women seeking abortions should be informed that abortion is associated with significant physical and mental health risks, and it also deprives them of numerous physical and mental health benefits associated with childbirth.” Reardon said.

He added, it’s “especially important for health care providers to be aware of these risks and the risk factors which identify those women who are at highest risk.”

“Providing women with the resources to help them resolve emotional issues relating to past abortions will not only increase their well-being but may possibly save their lives,” he said.

It would seem murder is a hard thing to cope with. Some states have made laws dictating that these risks must be briefed to women before abortion, or maybe a sonogram should be taken and the mother sign a statement saying she knows she is murdering a small baby and that she may not be able to forgive herself - ever - for having done so.

Planned Parenthood (subsidized murders in the back, free mammograms in the front) is out against all forms of these notifications - they want any woman to be able to kill any child for any reason to include none at all. While the law of the land protects these women and allows them to holocaust the unborn - it does not protect them from guilt.

I am no woman. I can only imagine the guilt of having killed the closest and most intimate experience of a human being (your own flesh and blood, who is 100% reliant on you for sustenance, shelter, and protection) being inside of you and then to hire depraved doctor to hunt you down with a group of surgical equipment that would make all but the very most depraved squeamish. I am talking about the stuff that makes infantrymen cry.

The great problem is that you can make it legal all day long, but if you think you can run from yourself - you had best re-read this post. You will never outrun yourself or God. What you thought would just destroy an unwanted child will also destroy the murderer. It just will take time. God has all the time in the world. It is the law of the harvest - called Karma by some others, but it is universal whether you subscribe to it or not.

Galatians 6:7
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

God is not mocked. He works on His schedule. The top half of this post proves that and those men who do those studies are just attempting to prove that which we already know. You reap what you sow. You sow death you will reap death.

It's Monday and I'm Back!

Verse of the Day:
"That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)" I John 1:1&2

So Sorry for the lack of posts. We have been sick , darn allergies, and things have been crazy! The biggest event that happened this past week was my Emma Bug turning 5!! Where does the time go??
The day she was born! We waited on her for over 8 years!

Day before she went home
Emma eating her cake on her actual birthday (her party was Saturday)

So yes, her little get together or party whatever you want to call it, we kept it small, was Saturday. We had a couple of close friends and their families over to celebrate. I loved her Mickey and Minnie Mouse cupcakes. I found the idea on Pinterest.

I had planned on making the actual cupcakes myself, BUT the day of Emily's birthday which was Thursday, she ended up at the Dr's office with an ear infection and was out of school the rest of the week. Well that day I had ordered cupcakes from a local place called Columbus Cupcakery to take to her class so I didn't have to make 2 separate batches of cupcakes. Instead of canceling the order I told her to wait until Saturday. Hey, less work for me and her cupcakes are AMAZING! I turned to a friend for the bows and I put the Oreos on myself. SUPER EASY CUPCAKES and anyone can do it. I was pleased :) Like I said, gotta love pinterest. 

Well the little party was a success. All of the kids had fun (there were 6 all together..well not including the 12 week old little girl) so it wasn't that small. Small in comparison to how many people I normally have. The girls seem to have more fun with less kids and truth be told, it is much less stress for me!

The second biggest event this week was registering my Bella Bear for preschool. Pemberton Township has an all day preschool program for 3 and 4 year olds which is what my Emma Bug is in now she moves on to kindergarten in September though :'( So on top of DH deploying soon BOTH of my babies will be in school. What am I gonna do with myself? Oh wait, there is cleaning the house IN PEACE, working out, finally being able to volunteer for things :) Reading a book when I want, watching what I want on TV for a change, and of course shopping with NO kids! Okay so not too bad, but I will still cry!! One thing I do need to figure out is drop offs! They are 2 totally different schools, 10 minutes apart, that start at the same time! I will figure it out. I am supermom after all :)

Anyway, enough rambling. I hope everyone has a blessed day! Catch you tomorrow for Tasty Finds Tuesday!

Outlaw Platoon by Sean Parnell

Sean Parnell

So many people have heard of the 10th Mountain Division of the United States Army. Sean Parnell was the officer in command of a mechanized infantry platoon working in Afghanistan. They suffered an 80% casualty rate and fought in many pitched battle - the likes of which have not been seen since Korea or World War II. A persistent enemy that did not always vanish on contact and planned elaborate ambushes and attempted to counter US firepower superiority.

Parnell's telling of firefights leaves no detail untold - from the smells of cordite and blood to the concussion of American airpower churning the very Earth and the men who stand upon it. His storytelling of not only the firefights but of the Afghans in both a brutal and savage light as well as fiercely loyal villages and spirited Afghan Nation Army allies. Camp politics, military leadership, and Islamic values all make their way onto the scene to paint a fully encapsulating picture of what life for 16 months in the Hindu Kush near Pakistan is like for the Army.

Pakistan is also a safe haven for infiltrating and ex-filtrating fighters. Pakistani hospitals give aid, medicine, ammo and weapons to the enemy. Parnell does not hide his frustration at the so called ally called Pakistan - serving as a recruitment and resupply point for the enemy that cannot be attacked.

From tactical round by round exchanges with a myriad of personalities displayed in "Outlaw Platoon: Heroes, Renegades, Infidels, and the Brotherhood of War in Afghanistan" to strategic quirks that make the war in Afghanistan upsetting to those in the field as well. Outlaw Platoon is a great read and brings both war and humanity to your fingertips.

On Obama: Part One

Warning: This might step on some toes.

The healthcare mandate is great unless you want to be a business owner. Or you cannot afford insurance. Or if you enjoy freedom. Because if you cannot afford insurance you are fined - that fine does not provide health care for you either.

I always run into people who love Obama, but cannot say what about the man they like. Truth is they are just charmed by him and care not about politics of the man. They cannot defend, and usually do not bother, any of his policies - unless they are socialist. Which they usually are not - and democrats are just a scant distance from socialists. Even republicans sometimes drift that way, but it is more rare.

The party lines are not clear indicators of where on the scale of governing falls. Although if democrat was a religion, and I contest that it is, abortion would be a sacrament. A religion that superceded all others.  To date 64 million abortions have been performed in the US since 1973. That is 10 1940s era holocausts. That is 64 million missing brothers sisters aunts uncles cousins, parents, and children. Artists, workers, inventors and preachers. All removed from life before they could draw a single breath. If you are a Christian - abortion is very wrong and you know it. I can give verses if you want. If you still feel this is just - just divert your mouse to block me. Luke 1:44  For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.  There is one.

If you are not a Christian - you do not have any guiding ethic - at least not one that applies to all men. SO YOU cannot say what is right or wrong. You have no clue. No authority if you did have a clue. Your opinion, if it is not a codified God given law, is as worthless as your opinion about your favorite food.  If you feel your opinion can be domineered over others - this is why the second amendment was enacted. 

As a result of this unborn holocaust is the democrat guiding mantra, if there is one, is to be the 'hook up' party.  Where the unborn catch the death if they are deemed unwanted by mother.  It is wrong and it is also wrong to be Christian and support such a party.  No matter how charming, well spoken, and sly the leader of that party.  


*This was written by my DH. I just pasted. Everyone have a fantastic Wordful Wednesday.

My New Toy

Verse of the Day:
"Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust." 2 Peter 1:4

Now that my girls are a touch older I find I can actually sit down for more than 5 minutes and read which I used to LOVE to do. My friend over at Midget Momma recently got a Kindle Fire so when I went over to her house I got to play with it and I LOVED IT!! I have the Kindle app on my phone but that is just not the same. So naturally since she is just so cool and I wanna be just like her (hahaha), I am joking...kinda, anyway since she had one I had to have one too. Have I mentioned I LOVE IT!!!!

Anyway, one of my favorite features is the Amazon Cloud. You can store everything on the cloud server and move it over to the Kindle Fire when you want to use it. Want it off of your device just remove it from the device and it will save it to your cloud server for later. 

My daughter's favorite feature is the fact that she can get on You Tube and watch videos and get on Netflix and watch her favorite shows. 

I use it for a variety of different things but ultimately I use it primarily to read my favorite books. Right now I am reading Circle Series by Ted Dekker. Very good series by the way. 

I highly recommend the Kindle if you are in the market for something like it. Have I mentioned I LOVE MINE!?

Trooppaws Review and Giveaway

A few weeks back I told you all about a fantastic company called Trooppaws. You can find that post here. I immediately fell in love with this wonderful idea that she had come up with. I had to have some for my girls since my DH is gone often.

They LOVED them. My youngest, Bella Bear, calls it her Daddy Dog because she says he is dressed like daddy.

My DH met Emma Bug when she got off the bus the day I recieved these in the mail and her face lit up!

A little about the company and the lady that runs it.
"I understand the importance of giving back, which is why for years now I have been baking cookies for the troops as a sign of support for our servicemen and women.  My passion for our brave troops led me to a factory that manufactures uniforms for the military. It gave me the idea to create a stuffed animal for military families and friends. The courage of family members left behind is so admirable that my hope is that loved ones find strength and comfort in this personalized keepsake.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Folds of Honor Foundation."  

Each Troop Paws measures 14" in height and is made of authentic military camouflage.  They each are adorned with a gro-grain ribbon bow tie and attached to the neck is a metal logo printed dog tag on a key chain.  The filling of the Troop Paws are 100% soft poly hypoallergenic.  On the right sleeve is a woven American Flag label.  The front of the Troop Paws has a clear pocket which is where the photo of your troop goes.  They are proudly made in the USA.

As a special treat for my readers I will be doing a giveaway! You can get your very own Trooppaws for your special little one. 

Trooppaws is also giving my readers a discount. Please go here, click on the picture NOT the buy it now button and will give you the discounted price.

The Art of Marriage Ops

Photobucket Pin It

Thankful Thursday

"Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God."II Corinthians 1:3&4

Things have been kinda crazy in this house lately, but today I want to thank God for everything! Even the trials and tribulations! I am a child of God and I KNOW he does not let anything in this hedge I have about me unless he knows I can handle it. He is good ALL OF THE TIME!

I do not have a fairy tale marriage, there is no such thing, but what I can tell you is I KNOW my husband loves me. My kids are not well behaved 100% of the time, again there is no such thing, but I know they are mine and I love them with all of my heart and soul. Don't get me wrong, I have good kids I can take just about anywhere without fear of temper tantrums of acting out.  MY house is not spotless 100% of the time, but I have a roof over my head, running water, heat and air, and a nice bed to lay down in at night. I am thankful for my friend who are there for me no matter what. I am thankful for my sisters and brothers. I am thankful for my precious Mama who has always been there. Through the ups and downs. I know no matter what I do she will always love me. There is NOTHING that compares to Mother's love, here on earth anyway :) I am thankful for my Daddy for always showing me Christ in the way he lives and walks and talks! I am thankful that he shared the truth with me. I am thankful for both mom and dad for always praying for me. I am thankful for my sweet sister in law who is always there to lend an ear or give some Godly advice! I am thankful for our military who sacrifice their lives so we can be free. I am thankful for my husband who provides and loves me. I am thankful for my precious sweet baby girls who remind me how much love I have! I love them more than anyone else on earth! I am thankful to God for the trials He puts me through. Without them, I would not be the person I am today. He always knows what is best for us! And the most important thing of all, I have a Savior who laid down His life for me and who took care of all of my sin debt, who completed my salvation on the cross, who suffered, was beaten and tormented all for me! He did it so I wouldn't have to. He takes care of me and my family and I couldn't imagine life without knowing Christ and for the life of me I do not understand how people cope without putting him first in all things. I know when I don't things mess up and I ask why me, but them remember through His Word that it was because I did not give Him control!

Today, remember God is always in control whether you like it or not. So to save yourself the stress why not just give everything over to Him to begin with?

What are you thankful for today? I hope everyone has a blessed day.
