I’m all for getting rid of the abortion clinics but don’t you believe we should should still have access to some type of this service for rape victims? I strongly believe we should keep some type of service for those incidents and the victims.

    Jo Rae Perkins

    Still have access to the right to kill an innocent pre-born baby? No. That is murder no matter how you try to spin it. What about rape or incest? Why should the life of an innocent baby be killed due to the act of the criminal. The girl or woman who has been raped or is a victim of incest needs proper counseling whether she becomes pregnant or not. By adding to the emotional pain she is already dealing with, why add the life long pain when she realizes an innocent baby was sacrificed? Counsel her to look at adoption. Thousands have done so, and are glad they chose that option. Why are people so quick to eliminate an innocent life?

      What about in cases like ectopic pregnancies?

        Jo Rae Perkins

        Ectopic pregnancies are extremely rare. And they are not according to current medical information able to be successfully moved to the uterus.
        However, an ectopic pregnancy is not viable and that is a medical issue. If the embryo is stuck in the fallopian tube and it bursts, it could cause fatal bleeding.
        This is not the same as an abortion. An abortion is taking the life of the fetus that is growing in the womb.
        I am 100% pro-life.

          You claim to be 100% pro-life. What are your stances on Gun Control and providing services for the homeless and/or people with mental disabilities.

          Jo Rae Perkins

          Your question is not related to being 100% pro-life.
          Pro-life means protecting the unborn/pre-born baby in the womb.
          Encouraging medical research to find ways to move the fetus from the fallopian tube to the uterus, thus removing that as an excuse for abortion. At this time, it is a medical decision, vs the choice to end the life of a baby growing in the womb.
          Pro-life means not ending the life prematurely due to illness, i.e. doctor assisted suicide.
          Those who want gun control because they believe guns kill are focused on the wrong issue. This is a mental health issue.
          Mental Disabilities: Research necessary why such a huge growth in mental illness.
          For those concerned about the shootings, perhaps part of the the issue is a total disregard for human life at all stages.
          Therefore, I contend those who want gun-control, must also be pro-life, yet many seem to be ok with abortion. Just a thought.

    Jo Rae Perkins

    Hoping my previous answer posted. I respectfully disagree.

    Jo Rae Perkns

    Absolutely not. Two of my friends became pregnant as a result of rape/date rape. One had a beautiful daughter. Today she is a wife, a mother, successful in business and worked in President Trumps administration. Another had a son; he is a smart and loved child.
    Why should an innocent life be taken due to the act of a criminal? The woman/girl will need counseling to work through the rape. If she has an abortion, she must then live with the guilt of taking an innocent life for the remainder of her life..
    Further the Declaration of Independence states,” We are endowed by our Creator with certain un-a-lienable rights, that among these are LIfe, LIberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” God is the creator of Life.

    Robert Nowell

    The baby becomes a person at conception and is instantly endowed with the right to life. The circumstances of their conception do not change this. One of many solutions to the rape issue is to carry the baby to term, helping the mother, and letting her choose to keep her baby or put it up for adoption.

Is your pro life stance hypocritical or does it extend to ending the death penalty?

    Jo Rae Perkins

    My pro-life stance is not hypocritical at all.
    The child in the womb is innocent of a crime.
    As for the death penalty, I see pros and cons to it. If a person
    takes someone’s life, why should that person be allowed to live their life?
    The evidence is not clear if the death penalty is a deterrent.
    If a person does not kill another person, as in murder, then there is no reason
    to have the death penalty is there? Stop killing the pre-born children and stop killing those that are already born!

      Robert Nowell

      Jo’s position is not hypocritical. One has to commit a capital crime to be subject to the death penalty and God has clearly laid out what crimes are capital. God, who alone is perfect in justice, mercy, and love, instituted the death penalty.

      Genesis 9:1-9

      And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. 2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. 3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. 4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat. 5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.

      6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man. 7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

      Gen. 9:8   And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, 9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;

        Robert,
        I am a fellow citizen in your community who does not share your religious views. Our laws are not based solely on biblical text. If they were, stoning children and beating slaves would still be acceptable. These holy directives are not despite being sanctioned in the religious text you cite. I sincerely respect your right to believe, but cherry picked passages from a holy book are not strong arguments and should be avoided when applied to human governance given the religious diversity of our country and the separation of church and state we have.

          Jo Rae Perkins

          Our laws are based upon the 10 commandments. There is moral law and there is civil law.
          I am not telling others how to live their lives. That is your choice as long as done within the bounds of civil and moral law.
          Read the Declaration of Independence: in part…. “The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

          We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.-“

What about for women who will die from giving childbirth? Are you against them having access to medically induced abortion? Are you saying that they are not innocent? Also, are you saying you endorse this based on your personal belief related to what constitutes innocence? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wrongful_execution#United_States

Last if you support right to life and the adoption system, will you ensure that funding for social welfare systems is boosted so that the adoption and child welfare systems have enough support and parents who can actually adopt all of these children? Do you even know what the state of this system is like? Are you in touch with this reality? Or are you going to overhaul the system in a meaningful way? If so, what’s your plan, step by step in understandable and transparent terms, please.

Your anecdotal example related to your 2 friends (N=2) isn’t exactly compelling evidence and assumes that everyone is just like your friends, which negates reality. Please enlighten us. Thank you.

    Jo Rae Perkins

    The statistical odds of a women dying from giving childbirth in today’s medical world is virtually nil.
    In 2020, there were 3,613,647 births. Unfortunately, about 700 women die after giving birth or during labor.
    That is totally different than aborting the baby to save the life of the mother. Less than 1% of pregnancies could call for terminating the life of the pre-born baby to save the life of the mother.
    Challenge is,the doctors really do not know if it will make a difference to wait and treat the mother in many cases. See Life News for more details.
    What I found interesting in doing some light research is the number of women having post-partum complications has nearly doubled in recent years. I am wondering, just sort of ‘out loud’ if there is a correlation between the increase in pregnancy complications and the vaccinations given from birth to adulthood. For example, did you know when a newborn is given a Hep B vaccine the aluminum is 250 mg when the adult maximum is 50mg? Of course, there is zero correlation. I am not a medical doctor, nor do I profess to be one. I am, however, able to read and conduct research.
    I will continue to fight for the life of the pre-born baby. Every life is precious.
    Roger, have you had an abortion? Do you know what the lifelong effects are?

    As for adoption, why is it the role of the government to provide the money? What happened to communities and churches coming together? The government is not the answer. Bigger government only drives the costs of all goods and services higher and higher. There are private organizations already in place. https://adoption.org/can-get-help-adoption-costs

    Finally, my example is real lift, not anecdotal. And nowhere does that mean everyone else is the same. It does however mean that 100% of all children matter. And for you or any one else to say or think a preborn baby does not matter may want to do some soul searching. I will NEVER stop fighting for the life of the preborn baby. Abortion is wrong. Infanticide is wrong. And until you or anyone else asks every adult on planet earth if they will care for a baby yet to be born, and raise and love that child, and finds there is absolutely no one who will say yes, then I will contend there are no unwanted children.

      S Schregardus

      While I agree that there is a very low statistic to death while giving birth in this age. There is a very dynamic disparity for women of color when targeted for promotion of abortion, and with prenatal and care experience birth and delivery in the hospital.
      The value of every single individual life must be in the forefront of our minds and hearts in every situation. From the cradle to the grave, all life must be valued in order for us to come together and to rise as a society. Compassion and core moral values help us make decisions in tough times. Ending a life in the womb compounds problems. It does not solve them.
      Without repeating everything mentioned, I will state: Just because we can, doesn’t mean we should. But once we do; we have a responsibility for the actions of the abilities we carried out to bring us here.
      We have to consider the cost of many of these choices that we make. We can’t do that without transparency. Although I don’t know the whole truth, I am discovering that I have trusted the government’s recommendations for health without considering my personal responsibility to understand that there may be a perspective that I have not considered. While I believe that every life is prescious, there are people out there who do NOT believe that. Big government means less accountability. Period.
      We need to be informed.
      We need to start understanding that our government does not have the ideals that we thought it did. Career politicians no longer represent us.
      Time for a change.

      Ray Sandlot

      Wow. Do you know how to do statistics. You can’t prove causation from correlation. Fundamental rule of Statistics. They didn’t run a controlled experiment and there are way too many confounding variables to complicate the response variable. Just because you can read doesn’t mean you understand everything you read.

        Jo Rae Perkins

        Nor does your comment prove you understand everything you read either, nor have I ever made such a comment. However, I do understand and know much more than you know what I know or understand. Hope that makes sense to you.

Thank you for your honesty and support of Life. Too many use the narrative of the Left to
try to support their position, when in reality, if there was investigation into how many supposed rape or incest cases, the numbers are infantesimal. And if that is truly the case, why should the violence of that act be solved with the act of murder of the innocent child? With technology, there is almost zero chance of a mother dying due to pregnancy. The naysayers need to do their investigation of scientific sources to know the truth of which they seem to believe.

I truly appreciate this post. I have been looking everywhere for this! Thank goodness I found it on Bing. You’ve made my day! Thank you again

THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO BUSINESS INVOLVING OR INTERFERING WITH A WOMAN’S RIGHT TO HER OWN BODY & LIFE. THIS ISSUE IS BETWEEN A WOMAN, HER CONSCIENCE, AND HER GOD. SEEMS VERY HYPOCRITICAL OF YOU TO SAY IT’S OK TO HAVE FREE CHOICE OF VACCINATIONS AND MASKS THAT DO IMPACT THE REST OF THE COMMUNITY AROUND YOU, BUT WOMEN DON’T HAVE FREE CHOICE OF THEIR BODIES. CONTINUING TO MAKE THIS THE PRIMARY FOCUS OF REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE IS GOING TO LOSE REPUBLICAN VOTES.

    Jo Rae Perkins

    You will not lose your right to take the life of an innocent child in the womb. The move by the U.S. Supreme Court would put the decision back to each state where it always belonged.
    And it is also against every law for the government to MANDATE masks and vaccinations. You are not being mandated by the U.S. Supreme Court to not get an abortion.
    I have personally researched abortions and the last time I checked, the child in the womb is human, with its own unique DNA. It is another body within the woman’s body. Therefore, anything she does to that human is not her body.
    Thanks for yelling ….
    As President Ronald Reagan said, “I find it interesting those who support abortion have been born.”
    Personally, I do not understand the cold-heartedness of those that scream we are taking away their rights yet ignoring the rights of an innocent child.
    Tell me, how do you feel about gun ownership?

Matty Dee

Thank you for your clarification on your stances. Do you feel that one person has a right to use another person’s organs without their consent? I think it is a factor in the discussion here.

Have a nice evening. Thank you again for the responses.

    Jo Rae Perkins

    Hi Matty,
    Absolutely no – No one has the right to use another person’s organs without their consent. Parent’s however do have the right to donate their deceased child’s organs when the child is a minor.
