About the Ordinance

"I raised three children after my husband & I divorced. Having a baby is a gift from God. Hard yes, but a gift. It is a part of Gods plan for every child to be born into this world with a chance to fall in love with Him. There are hundreds of couples that would love to adopt a baby as an alternative to killing it. It is my opinion that life begins at conception which gives that baby equal rights of the mother. The mother is not more important than the baby. Responsible sex (with one partner after marriage) is the only true way to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. There is no such thing as 'casual' sex." - Dianne G.
"To stop the innocent babies being killed." - Charles B.
"Children are a blessing from God. Its wrong to take a life from Gods creation that can not defend or speak for themselves. It is an abomination. Adoption is a way better option. To bless and bring joy to a couple ( man and woman) who can not have children. And to bless a child with a loving mom and dad. A baby is a person!!!" - Liz R.
“Life starts at conception and those human beings with life should be given the opportunity to life without the possibility of being killed in the womb.” - Anahi M.
“It is murder.” - Joe Melao
“Religious and personal reason.” - Benjamin M.
"I want to abortion outlawed because abortion kills an innocent human being, whose rights as a human being, created in the image and likeness of God, are totally ignored." - Marian B.
"This is an abomination and evil. I would like to see my city prosper and also attract God's blessing." - Mary M.
"Yahweh states he created all humans, in the Image of Yahweh (Genesis 1:27). Yahweh has known mankind at conception, actually before conception (Jeremiah 1:5). Do not hinder the Children from coming to Yeshua (Mark 10:14). Do not sacrifice Children to "other Gods". (Leviticus 18:21). Turn away from Child sacrifice If the members of the community close their eyes when that man sacrifices one of his children to Molech and if they fail to put him to death, then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people (Leviticus 20:4). Child sacrifice to Satan's kingdom has brought all the Evil and Judgement to this United States. The complacency of the Church of believers in Yeshua has allowed the evil to come upon the U.S.A. Lack of action, No true relationship with Yeshua." - Hershel R.
“It is murder.” - Patricia M.

“Abortion is a heinous act of violence against Gods gift of life. Mothers should be given access to resources to keep their baby or adopt out.” - Hannah S.
“As the mother of two adopted sons and one grandson who was slated for (but escaped) an abortion I want to protect the lives of the unborn by outlawing abortion. Human life is exclusively precious to our Creator as we are made in His image. The abortion issue is not social, political or economic. It is a spiritual battle between God and His enemy Satan, who seeks to destroy that which is uniquely precious to God. "Thou shalt not kill". Exodus 20.” - Carolyn W.
"Abortion is murder and brutally vile and vicious!!!!!!!!!" - Miechell F.
