(01/26/16) "We are here at Lifewatch to watch over those most vulnerable. We are here to stand before the Lord to pray for those most vulnerable. We are here to stand before the Lord to pray for those who are being led to death, to repent for our callousness, and to pray for grace to do all we can to protect those who need our protection."

(01/19/16) "As a pro-life advocate, I want to defend the right of the unborn child to experience life. But I also advocate for the right of women to be free from the documented dangers of abortion: sterility, a perforated uterus, depression, subsequent drug and alcohol abuse. These hazards have been written about in studies published in well-established medical journals."

(12/08/15) "Iím daily reminded of being saved from abortion. I was conceived in rape, yet given the incredible opportunity, through adoption, to love and be loved..... Words could not even begin to express how grateful I am to my birthmom and her self-sacrifice. .... So, I share my story. I share othersí stories. .... One of those examples is the Watts family. I love these people. They truly are a reflection of Godís heart."   Source: "Watts Love Got To Do With It? Everything,", by Ryan Bomberger, 11/26/15, accessed 12/7/15

(12/01/15) "The number of reported abortions dropped 4 percent in 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. About 699,000 abortions were reported to the federal government that year. That's about 31,000 fewer than the year before. .... In 2012, the abortion rate fell 5 percent to 13 abortions per 1,000 women of child-bearing age. That is about half what it was in 1974, the year after the landmark Supreme Court decision that established a nationwide right to abortion."

Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting, and his truth endureth to all generations."

HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND GOD'S BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!

(11/17/15) "A study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) ... found that premature babies are surviving earlier outside of the womb -- specifically, at just 22 weeks. Furthermore, it was discovered that some of these children, with proper medical treatment, can go on to survive and live completely healthy lives."

(11/10/15) "The Planned Parenthood facility where abortion center manager-turned pro-life advocate Abby Johnson worked is now a functioning pro-life pregnancy center. Hope Pregnancy Centers of Brazos Valley purchased the Bryan, Texas Planned Parenthood building last year after the abortion center closed. The pro-life organization remodeled the facility and opened in September, according to the Christian News Network."

(11/03/15) "Faith groups are speaking out about their support for Planned Parenthood.... .... Rev. Harry Knox, the head of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice and one of the signers of the letter, .... blasted both the intent and tactics of the Center for Medical Progress, the group responsible for making the inflammatory videos geared towards defaming Planned Parenthood. 'As a Christian, I believe that God trusts and empowers each of us to make the decisions that are best for ourselves and our families,' Knox wrote in an email."

ANNUAL LIFEWATCH
WORSHIP SERVICE
January 22, 2016
The United Methodist Building
Washington, DC.
LWMarch 2016

December 2015 Newsletter
Help us witness for the Gospel of Life!

PRAYER:

Father, you have created us in body and soul
To honor you and our neighbor
And to receive honor and respect in return.

Our bodies are sacred.
They reflect you, our Creator.
And we hold sacred
The bodies of all the children in the womb.

Lord, we are saddened
That these children are being killed,
And saddened again
That their body parts are being harvested and sold.

Have mercy on our nation.
Have mercy on those who are perpetrating these evils.
As more and more people become aware of this,
Turn their hearts towards you,
The Fountain of life and love.

Give consolation to all who have had abortions,
And give wisdom to our public officials
That they may respond adequately
To the corruption found in the abortion industry.

Grant that we,
The People of Life and the People of Mercy,
May recommit ourselves to building a nation
Without abortion and without the many evils that flow from us.

May we choose life;
May we choose mercy;
May we choose your Kingdom!
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Source of the prayer: Father Frank Pavone, President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council (of which Lifewatch is a member) and National Director of Priests for Life.

Our Mission:

Out of obedience to Jesus Christ, the Taskforce of United Methodists on Abortion and Sexuality (TUMAS) will work to create in church and society esteem for human life at its most vulnerable, specifically for the unborn child and for the Woman who contemplates abortion.  Therefore, TUMAS's first goal is to win the hearts and minds of United Methodists, to engage in abortion-prevention through theological, pastoral and social emphases that support human life."
