(07/29/2015) "The fetal period begins on day 57 after
fertilization and ends at birth. The tissues and organs that
were formed during the embryonic period continue to grow during
the fetal period, but the changes aren't as pronounced.
Ultrasonic measurements are used to measure embryonic growth.
.... Physicians can now measure how the fetus is growing and
what its state of health is with a very high degree of accuracy.
Through advanced surgical procedures, doctors can operate on the
fetus without leaving a scar."

(07/22/2015) Within the past few weeks, two undercover videos of
Planned Parenthood representatives selling body parts of aborted
babies have been released. Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director
of Medical Services, PPFA, and Mary Gatter, Medical Director of
Planned Parenthood in Pasadena, CA, described in graphic detail
how to procure specific fetal organs and how much Planned
Parenthood would charge buyers for the purchase of those organs.
(The full footage of both videos - 2 hours, 42 minutes and 1
hour, 13.5 minutes, respectively - is included at the end of the
(07/15/2015) "The United Methodist Church will
gather for its next General Conference in May, 2016, but work
behind the scenes is well underway. [More than 860 delegates
from 130 annual conferences will be part of the event at the
Oregon Convention Center in Portland.] It is a time of prayer
and planning to guide the denomination for years to come, and a
huge undertaking. Members of the Commission on General
Conference recently visited the General Conference site...."
(07/07/2015) "... Tamesha Means, who miscarried in
2010, was represented by the ACLU and ACLU Michigan with her
lawsuit against the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishop and three
chairs of Catholic Health Ministries. She did not, however, sue
the hospital Mercy Health, or its parent, Trinity Health Corp.
Judge Robert Holmes Bell dismissed the case. .... Bell noted
that Means still had recourse in the courts to sue doctors or
hospitals for medical malpractice if she received inadequate
medical care – but not, the judge concluded, to sue a religious
organization or officials for their religious doctrine."
(06/30/2015) "...[A]ccording to the Guttmacher Institute, as of
May 1, 2015, 23 states had ultrasound laws in place; they are
common. The shared element of each law is that a woman seeking
an abortion first obtains an ultrasound. There are different
nuances in each state, including the kind of ultrasound required
(abdominal verses transvaginal) and if/how the woman seeking the
abortion will view the image. Ultrasound laws fall in the
category of “informed consent laws” because they provide the
woman with factual (and pictorial) information to help her make
what could be the most significant decision of her life."
"Headlines are screaming that
Americans who hold they are pro-choice now outnumber those who
say they are pro-life, 50 percent to 44 percent respectively.
The media is reporting that this is the first time since 2008
that more Americans have identified themselves as pro-choice
than pro-life. But there’s more to it. Looking closer at the
numbers, 19 percent of respondents said abortion should be
illegal in all circumstances and 36 percent said it should be
legal in only a few circumstances. Those two groups make up 55
percent of respondents, while people who said abortion should be
legal in all and most circumstances amount to 42 percent."
(06/03/2015) "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 sperm has 23 chromosomes and so does
the ovum, but the zygote has 46 chromosomes. Although half of
its chromosomes come from each parent, the zygote is genetically
different than either of them, and is, in fact, genetically
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
