(07/18/2017) "Melinda Gates said it's 'very troubling' that President Trump reinstated a policy banning U.S. funding of abortion and abortion-promoting organizations overseas. Just after he was inaugurated, Trump reinstituted the 'Mexico City Policy' that prevents government money from going to groups that commit or promote abortion abroad. Thanks to Trump's pro-life order, 'reproductive health organizations' abroad now can't do abortions at all in their facilities Ė not even with British or French money Ė if they're receiving U.S. money, Gates complained."

[Excerpt: On July 11, "World Population Day," African pro-life activist Obianuju Ekeocha blasted a BBC anchor for using "colonial talk" to argue contraception should be pushed on African women. She called Western countries funding abortions in Africa "ideological colonization."]

(07/11/2017) "An embryo, or a new human, comes into existence when a zygote is produced at fertilization by the combination of a sperm with an ovum. .... The sex of the embryo is determined genetically. Genetic sex is established.  The difference between a male and a female is determined genetically at the time of conception."

(06/27/2017) "The Nineteenth Amendment, which guarantees the right of women to vote, was famously known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment. She passionately wrote pro-life speeches, explaining the treachery of abortion and postnatal infanticide. In one of her most acclaimed speeches, she implored her audience with these powerful words: 'Guilty? Yes, no matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; but oh! thrice guilty is he who, for selfish gratification, heedless of her prayers, indifferent to her fate, drove her to the desperation which impels her to the crime.'Ē

(06/20/2017) "When push comes to shove, ... moviegoers see more pro-choice messages in films than they do pro-life messages, according to a poll made public for the first time Friday. The scientific poll, conducted by Barna Group, indicates that, when abortion is presented onscreen, 29 percent of Americans think Hollywood is favoring the pro-choice position, while 25 percent say it is favoring the pro-life position. Only 14 percent say no agenda is pushed, while 18 percent donít recall seeing a movie in which the topic was even discussed. .... ...[T]he Barna movie poll ... was commissioned by the filmmakers behind Because of Gracia, an independent title planned for a theatrical release in September. The film stars former American Idol contestant Moriah Peters as a high school student ridiculed for her commitment to save sex until marriage. Because of Gracia includes a parallel story of abortion ó hence the filmmakers were curious to poll American moviegoers on the topic ...."

(06/13/2017) Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross "has been sharing her own abortion story in media interviews recently.... In an interview with Sports Illustratedís ďNowĒ show, the track athlete said many of her fellow athletes also have had abortions. 'The truth is itís an issue thatís not really talked about, especially in sports, and a lot of young women have experienced this.... 'I literally donít know another female track-and-field athlete who hasnít had an abortion Ė and thatís sad. So, for me, Iím hoping that this will open up some discussions, to helping especially a lot of young women who were in my situation not experience what I did,' she said."

(06/06/2017) "I believe that Godís love and Godís law, the Bible and the Tradition, as well as moral law and natural law, challenge the Church and the society to protect the unborn child and mother. This is the Churchís truth about life. My challenge is to propose to you the truth about life ó not impose this truth on you. To propose is to offer the truth about life to you, and then allow God to apply it to your hearts and minds. To impose this truth on you is to crush your conscience and perhaps your spirit. That is not my intent. My aim is to propose the truth about life to you."

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."
