BY Kenneth E. Barnes
Lord, I do not have a name, but You know me. I can not speak or even hear,
And my eyes I can not open, but my heart is full of fear.
For tomorrow I shall be destroyed and they don’t even know who I am.
It seems Lord that You had the same problem, for you too were also condemned.
In your wisdom You have been here; Lord You know what everyone has been through.
So please remember that I have existed, because no one will know but You.
My mother shall never see me; never a smile on my face.
I wonder, will she ever miss me? Will another ever take my place?
Lord, I’m sorry I never got to know You. I’ll Never get to laugh or play.
I’ll never get to see my brothers; I won’t even learn how to pray.
And Lord, I wish tomorrow would never get here, because I can not scream or even cry.
But I’ll feel the pain just as You did. Lord You know how it feels to die.
But Lord, I shall get to know You, even though I was never born.
Even though I was aborted, in Heaven I shall be adored.*
GOVERNMENT – FROM PROTECTOR TO PREDATOR
Kenneth E. Barnes in the above stunning poetry of infant-womb pathos gives such a powerful and heart-rending voice to the silent screamers who are crying out to us day after day and year after year by the millions.
Mike Oppenheimer blows our minds by pointing out the following: “With 1.5 million babies killed before birth each year, this number is higher in one year than all American deaths since the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War I and II, the Korean War, Vietnam, and Persian Gulf Wars combined…Total death in Wars – 1,043,569. Total death by Abortions in America – approximately 40 Million. Total deaths worldwide – almost One Billion.” **
Mike Oppenheimer goes on so insightfully when he writes: “Abortion denies a child all that you already possess. You went through the same process except that you made it out alive from the womb…Thomas Jefferson wrote in our nation’s Declaration of Independence, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. This right is related to “life.” Life was the first mentioned. Life was basic because life is necessary for someone to pursue their happiness as well as any other rights. Thomas Jefferson also wrote, ‘The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only legitimate object of good government.’” ***
Let us summarize what this nation embraced as its Divine mandate from the very beginning. Based on the words of our founding fathers in America’s Declaration of Independence:
“EVERY HUMAN BEING’S BIRTHRIGHT BY IRREVOCABLE CHARTER FROM HIS CREATOR
IS HIS RIGHT TO LIVE, AND HIS RIGHT TO LIVE WELL.”
Based on the words of The Declaration of Independence and Thomas Jefferson:
“GOD IS THE SOLE CREATOR OF LIFE, AND GOVERNMENT IS GOD’S TRUSTEE TO PROTECT
SOCIETY IN BOTH THE THE POSSESSION AND THE ENJOYMENT OF IT.”
Think about those words long enough and they begin to tear your heart apart, for instead of being the caretakers and protectors of human life, liberty and happiness, the United States Government and the United States Supreme Court have become the destroyers of human life, liberty and happiness. America no longer breathes the fresh, new air of life, for it has been fouled by the dead air and stench of abortion. Abortion is America’s monument to governmental and parental hate.
President Bill Clinton forcefully defended the killing of pre-born children at whatever stage of development, including the horrendous partial birth abortion.
President Barack Obama also supports every stage of this barbarism. He stands with the most pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, anti-life movement in the history of the United States. He vowed to Planned Parenthood in July 2007 that one of his first acts would be to sign the “Freedom of Choice Act” (FOCA) which would lift all restrictions on abortions causing the number of abortions to soar. Planned Parenthood reported 289,750 abortions in its 2006 fiscal year. We now have the battle of our lifetime just to preserve the gains for womb-children made under the President George W. Bush Administration.
Now we are being told that President Obama intends to rescind the “Conscience Rule” that protects workers in the health industry who conscientiously refuse to participate in abortions or other medical procedures that go against their moral and religious beliefs. Doctors, nurses, and health providers could lose their religious freedoms and their jobs under President Obama’s presidency. We have our prayer work and our Kingdom responsibilities to have our voices heard in the political process clearly before us. The battle for life heats up!
Since the executive, legislative and judicial branches of American government have muscled their way into the womb, and license has been issued for womb-violence and infanticide, baby showers and baby gifts have given way to fetal-butcheries and dumpings. Maternal stretch marks have been replaced by womb gougings. A culture of death has been manufactured in which women are childless both before and after conception.
“Expectant Mothers” is now a category that has been replaced by “Pregnant Women,” for in the “Women’s Rights Movement,” you are not a mother until the baby is born. Such is also the murderous mentality of the abortion industry. The miracle of reproduction has given way to skull drilling and brain sucking. For after all, who really wants this grotesque creature living inside of you pummeling and squashing the innards of the host female organism? America is now repulsed by dilations, secretions and contractions even though every American put their mother through the very same and lived to tell about it.
American has been and is now swimming in the bloody ocean of millions of aborted children, and she will not escape God’s woeful vengeance. We must warn Washington D.C. and all of the cities of America where abortions are carried out with the words of Ezekiel 24:6,7 “Therefore, thus says the Lord God, ‘Woe to the bloody city…For her blood is in her midst….”
Be sure of this:
“THOSE WHO SHED THE BLOOD AND SWIM IN THE OCEAN OF MURDERED BABY’S
BLOOD WILL ONE DAY DROWN IN IT.”
We can be confident of this, though they be the tiniest, forgotten infants whose blood is shed, the blood of the murdered womb-children will not go unrevenged by God. Morally bankrupt humanity no longer likes children or childbirth. God loves childbirth and children, and both God and His murdered little ones will have their day in court with God being both Judge and Jury.
BIRTH AND BIRHTRIGHTS – BEING AND WELL-BEING
Kenneth Barnes in Condemned strikes anew a nerve so deep in my heart as he becomes the voice of the tiny, helpless, silent screamers who are being aborted around the world a billion times over. What gripped me so powerfully is that the unborn of America and the world are not only being brutally cheated and robbed of their very lives, but of their liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Hear me now:
“THE ONLY WAY FOR EACH HUMAN BEING’S BIRTHRIGHTS TO BE REALIZED IS WHEN HIS
OR HER RIGHT TO BE BIRTHED IS FIRST PROTECTED.”
It is more than gut wrenching to be reminded that the aborted infant will never experience the freedom and happiness of laughter, playing, praying or seeing and being kissed by his or her father, mother, brothers or sisters on earth. He or she will never have that first awesome stroller ride which is equal to a roller-coaster ride, or know the ecstasy of tasting a hot-fudge sundae. No candy corn, Christmas cookies, chocolate bunnies or ice-cream cones. As adults we consider it cruelty to deny ourselves any and all of this bliss. America doesn’t consider it cruelty to kill their young before they can so much as taste one.
But one thing for sure, the child murdered in the womb will never celebrate a birthday. There can be no celebration of birthdays without the right to be birthed. There can be no “Happy Birthdays” without the “Happy Birth Day.”
“THERE CAN BE NO SECURING OF WELL-BEING WHEN THE RIGHT TO BE, THE MOST
SACRED RIGHT OF ALL, IS TAKEN AWAY.”
If a child loses his sight, he can learn to read by Braille. If a child loses a limb, he can learn to walk by means of a prosthesis. If a child loses his hearing, he can learn to communicate through sign language. But if a child loses his life, there is no replacing or retrieving of that. No one can make up for the loss of life which loss takes all of the blessings of living away.
And what might the aborted child have become in life? Oh the exciting possibilities for God’s glory and human enrichment! Tragically again:
“THERE CAN BE NO CELEBRATION OF BECOMING WITHOUT THE CELEBRATION
“THE CHILD WHO IS NEVER BORN BECOMES NOTHING ON EARTH, WHILE THE CHILD WHO
IS BORN CAN BECOME ANYTHING.”
While being leads to becoming, not being leads to nothing. Never is not ever! The mother’s womb which was once the threshold of greatness for many is now the potential precipice of death for all. This is what the Hellions who invade God’s secret place and murder His children have done. Abortionists are the modern “Wrecking Crew” of life, the “Robbers” of human liberty and happiness, and the “Destroyers” of America’s and the world’s future.
There is no well-being without being. There are no birthrights without birth. There is no becoming without being. America has been deceived by its leaders into thinking that they can have all of the former without the latter. And it is not by chance therefore that the Lord states His abhorrence for the shedders of blood and for the deceitful in the same breath in Psalm 5:6,
“The Lord abhors the man of bloodshed and deceit.”
