Colorado's March for Abolition: Jan 20, 2018

Colorado's March for Life becomes the March For Abolition

The nation's first RTL organization, Colorado Right To Life, is embarrassed that it's been more than a half-century since our founding, and unborn children are still being slaughtered in our communities. Since the U.S. Supreme Court's abortion opinion Roe v. Wade, we've been counting up, seemingly forever, to what this year in other states is the 44th annual March for Life. Not counting abortifacients like the so-called Morning After Pill, during this time more than 60 million children have been killed in surgical abortions. We commit ourselves to becoming focused, not on "Celebrating Life", which abortionists themselves find ways of doing, but on actually abolishing abortion.

When: Sat. Jan. 20, 2018 at 10 a.m.
Where: In front of Planned Parenthood at 38th & Pontiac
What: CRTL's March for Abolition

Abolish Human Abortion Activist: Jonathan Sutherland, with AHA, is coming to Denver to speak at CRTL's March for Abolition. We are gathering on the frontlines, at Colorado's largest abortion mill at 10 a.m. Please plan to be there to greet Jonathan and to hear what, we pray, God wants us to hear about our duty to obey Him and to love our preborn neighbors. During our event, tragically, pregnant mothers will be entering Planned Parenthood to have the abortionist kill their unborn child. Please come asking God for the wisdom to know how best to effectively and peacefully, of course, intervene!

UPDATE: One family who has long fought against abortion walked out of CRTL's march last year. Why? They were upset by the message. But after a board member asked them to watch our political strategy documentary, Focus on the Strategy, here is their reply:

Dear Colorado RTL,
What have we done?
Praise God for the faithful like you!
That video made a profound impact on me.

What effect will it have on you? Here it is:

And like last year, we're taking the fight to the frontlines at Denver's Planned Parenthood abortion mill. See last year's event:

Join These CRTL Denver Street Witnesses

Incarnation Embryo: The Word became flesh, image of day-old embryoOne-time Events: To be notified for one-time pro-life protest events, please send along your email to office@ColoradoRTL.org.

In this giving season, please give the Gospel message to others and cry out for our littlest neighbors being led to slaughter. And please join the third Saturday street witness with Mark & Terri Aughenbaugh:

- Sat., Dec 16 from noon to 1:30 p.m. for a street witness at the intersection of Colo. Blvd & Alameda Ave in Denver. Signs provided or bring Christmas themed messages.

Please come, please post this online, please promote this at your church, and please invite a friend!

Message from Mark Aughenbaugh

Please join us this Saturday to expose the murder of our preborn neighbors. We will hold signs and distribute tracts to expose the murder of our neighbors and inform people what these littlest neighbors are worth and how they can know the God who made them. We will provide signs and literature but feel free to bring your own. We'll be at the corner of Quebec & 17th. We have not been to this particular intersection before but the traffic backs up pretty well (i.e., badly) there and it so it should be a good opportunity to hand out literature. We invite you to join us because:
- each of us is called to "Love our neighbor as our self"
- we are called to expose evil
- we all should adorn the Gospel with our good works
- God tells us to rescue those being lead off to the slaughter
- God hates the hands that shed innocent blood
- of the many verses in the Bible about "innocent bloodshed" and bloodguilt
- God cares
- lives are spared from murder when we expose this evil
- some people that see these signs or read the tracts will be convicted and seek God
- we are called to speak up for those who can't speak for themselves.
- I am begging you.

Does the world hate you? (John 15:18-25)  Are you being persecuted (2 Tim. 3:12)

Are you a Holocaust denier?

(Mark is a dear friend of CRTL.)

Weekly Events: Please join us any Saturday anytime from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Colorado's largest killing center, the Planned Parenthood at 7155 38th Avenue in Denver.

Daily Presence: Planned Parenthood kills children by the following schedule. We would be so thankful to see you there sometime:

CRTL: The Bible and Abortion

The Bible contains passages that have bearing on the abortion issue in America, and specifically to the crime of killing the unborn child, and generally, to the principles of life and death. Alphabetically by topic:

Abortion for Incest: "Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall the children be put to death for their fathers; a person shall be put to death for his own sin." –Deuteronomy 24:16

Once a person sees that the Bible clearly teaches that it is wrong to kill a child for the crime of his or her father, that frees the person to get beyond the cliché and look more closely at the actual result of abortion for incest. Because it is wrong to kill the child for the crime of the father, there are other terrible consequences, including that abortion for rape and incest emboldens those criminals and increases such crimes against women. Abortion for incest is cruel, as for example, Planned Parenthood abortionists cover up the crime of incest, and typically send the victim back home to her rapist. Even worse, they often send her home with her rapist, the same criminal who brought her to the clinic to dispose of the "evidence" and help him get away with his crime. Abortion for incest actually emboldens a criminal to rape his young relative and then tempts him to repeat his crime, and is not compassionate because it kills a baby and increases the woman's suffering.

Abortion for Rape: "The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son… the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself." –God, Ezekiel 18:20

Of course incest is a particular kind of rape, and the same scriptural teaching, here as spoken by God Himself, condemns all such punishment of the child for the crime of the father. This principle as recorded by the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel explains that a good man would love and protect the baby, but instead many lawyers and others will treat the rapist with respect and protect him, but kill the baby. See also Sherri's Story and Colorado RTL's Amendment 62 Talking Points.

Children in the Womb: "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son." Mat. 1:23
"Rebekah his wife conceived [and] the children struggled together within her." –Moses, Genesis 25:22
"Behold, you shall conceive and bear a son. Now drink no wine or similar drink… for the child shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb…" –Judges 13:7
"[John] will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb. And… the babe leaped in her womb…" –Luke 1:15, 41
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you…" –Jeremiah 1:5

The New Testament refers to Jesus in the womb as a "child" and indicates that Mary had a normal gestation period (Luke 2:1-6; [1:56-57]) carrying Jesus, who's body was developing within her for a full nine months, showing that the Lord began His earthly human life as a tiny embryo, a single cell. Many centuries before the Incarnation, the most famous twins in the history of the world, Jacob and Esau, fraternal twins, are called "children" in the Scriptures while they are in the womb. And of course, to this day, twins grab hold of one another in the womb, and unborn children suck their thumbs, play with their toes, sleep, dream, and even learn the melodies of songs, and their own mother's voice. Regarding God's command to the woman who later bore Samson, to not drink wine, her "child" would be a Nazirite "from the womb," for a Nazirite is a person who, among other things, does not drink alcohol. Modern child-welfare laws in 18 states (AZ, CA, FL, IL, IN, IA, MD, MA, MI, MN, NV, OK, RI, SC, TX, UT, VA, WI) recognize that a pregnant mother who drinks alcohol not only can harm her child, but can inflict him or her with fetal alcohol syndrome. Also, fetal thirst helps regulate the amount of amniotic fluid in the womb. Excess amniotic fluid, called hydramnios (or polyhydramnios) affects 2% of pregnancies and can be somewhat alleviated by fetal swallowing (and eventual expelling) of amniotic fluid, which swallowing can be increased by injection into the womb of an artificial hunger stimulator (peptide) or even by the mother eating sweets.

Crime of Killing the Innocent: "Do not kill the innocent." –Exodus 23:7
"On your skirts is found the blood of the lives of the poor innocents. I have not found it by secret search, but plainly… Yet you say, 'Because I am innocent, Surely His anger shall turn from me.' Behold [says God], I will plead My case against you, because you say, 'I have not sinned.'" –Jer. 2:34-35
"Your eyes and your heart are for nothing but your covetousness, for shedding innocent blood, and practicing oppression and violence." –Jer. 22:17
"For they have committed adultery, and blood is on their hands… and even sacrificed their sons…" –Ezekiel 23:37
…that no man might make his son or his daughter pass through the fire to Molech. –2 Kings 23:10
"You shall not murder." –God Exodus 20:13

The intentional killing of the innocent is murder. Abortionists refer to the unborn children they kill as tissue and tumors, and many "conservative" politicians refer to the babies they support killing as "exceptions." But God didn't care about all the fruit Eve did not eat; nor did He mention all the women David did not violate; nor list the children whom Herod did not kill. God looks at the exceptions. He calls them children, who are made in His image and likeness. Because abortion is a public venture, except for those individually forgiven by God through faith in Jesus Christ, there is a corporate guilt for the shedding of innocent blood.

Crime of Killing the Unborn is Murder: "If men fight, and hurt a woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely, yet no harm follows, he shall surely be punished accordingly as the woman's husband imposes on him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. But if any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe." –Exodus 21:22-25

Exodus 21:22 is the first fetal homicide law and concerns the child harmed during a separate assault. Pro-abortion theologians wrongly interpret this passage to refer to miscarriage, and only if the woman also dies is the penalty then life for life. But the passage distinguishes between the baby who survives the assault and the baby who dies. The meaning turns on whether the woman has a miscarriage or gives birth prematurely. And the Hebrew verb used is NOT that for miscarriage. Therefore the passage imposes only a fine on the criminal who accidentally causes a premature birth, but the punishment is life for life if the baby then dies. This shows that God equated the life of the unborn with that of the born, and abortion with murder. This passage, like Exodus 21:33-36, 22:5-6, and others, teaches that those who cause injury are responsible for their actions, even if the harm was unintentional. Therefore, this passage is the biblical model for any principled Unborn Victims of Crime Act. However, if the harm to the unborn in Exodus 21:22 spoke only of miscarriage, the teaching would then support legalized abortion by valuing the life of a fetus only with a fine, and only if the mother later died, would her death require taking the criminal's life. But note the word used to describe the consequence of the crime described in Exodus 21:22, "If men fight, and hurt a woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely," the Hebrew word for miscarriage, shaw-kole, is NOT used. If the baby came out dead, a monetary fine would indicate a less than human value for the life of the fetus. However, because Exodus 21:22 says premature birth, and not miscarriage, the passage does not support a right to kill an unborn child, as contended by many who mistranslate this text. Rather, the text values the unborn child's life equal to that of any other person. The author Moses (Mat. 12:26) mentions the idea of a baby coming out of the womb twice within three chapters. In Exodus 23:26, he uses the Hebrew word for miscarriage, speaking of barrenness and shaw-kole (miscarriage). But the word at Exodus 21:22 is yaw-tsaw, which means to come out, come forth, bring forth, and has no connotation of death but in fact the opposite.(וְכִֽי־יִנָּצ֣וּ אֲנָשִׁ֗ים וְנָ֨גְפ֜וּ אִשָּׁ֤ה הָרָה֙ וְיָצְא֣וּ יְלָדֶ֔יהָ וְלֹ֥א יִהְיֶ֖ה אָסֹ֑ון עָנֹ֣ושׁ יֵעָנֵ֗שׁ כַּֽאֲשֶׁ֨ר יָשִׁ֤ית עָלָיו֙ בַּ֣עַל הָֽאִשָּׁ֔ה וְנָתַ֖ן בִּפְלִלִֽים׃) The Hebrew Scriptures use yaw-tsaw 1,043 times beginning with Genesis 1:24 where God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature…” In Genesis and Exodus alone Moses uses this word about 150 times such as in Genesis 25 describing the births of twins Jacob and Esau. Thus the Mosaic law requires the criminal to pay financial restitution to a woman unintentionally injured by a criminal if she "gives birth prematurely." But then if the baby dies, the text applies the full Hebrew idiom which means that the punishment should fit the crime. If there is harm beyond a premature birth, and the unborn child dies, then the punishment is "life for life."

The Fetus Has Emotions: "As soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy." –Luke 1:44

The Scripture refers to the fetus as a baby (brephos) and does not use a non-human or non-personhood term. In Greek Ἐλισάβετ... ἐσκίρτησεν τὸ βρέφος [transliteration brephos, babe, infant] ἐν τῇ κοιλίᾳ mοu. Thus the baby, who would be named John, experienced the emotion of joy when Mary, being pregnant with the incarnate Jesus, entered Elizabeth's home.

Judging with Righteous Judgment: "You have rightly judged." –Jesus, Luke 7:43

Every Republican Justice Since Roe Rejects the Child's Right To Life, Gorsuch Too

Who never said the following?

$10,000 check to National RTL if they can name a single pro-life justice..."An unborn child has a right to life."

If you said Justice Roberts, you're right!
If you said Justice Alito, you're right!
If you said Justice Thomas, you're right!
If you said Justice Souter, you're right!
If you said Justice Kennedy, you're right!
If you said Justice Scalia, you're right!
If you said Justice O'Connor, you're right!
If you said Judge Gorsuch, you're right!

For decades, National Right To Life and the pro-life industry has cheered each Supreme Court Justice, who was eventually confirmed, who had been nominated by Ronald Reagan, George H.W., and George W. Bush! Yet every one of those judges reject that the unborn child has a right to life.

Central Holding: The late Notre Dame law professor, pro-life Charles Rice, taught (see youtu.be/r4esSBgE10Y) that every one of the Republican justices nominated since 1973 have accepted the central holding of Roe v. Wade that the unborn child does not have a right to life.

* In Neil Gorsuch's Own Words: As CRTL has been warning since January about Gorsuch:

Pro-choice Republican Justices: Those Justices are Sandra Day O'Connor (1981), Antonin Scalia (1986), Anthony Kennedy (1988), David Souter (1990), Clarence Thomas (1991), John Roberts (2005), and Samuel Alito (2006). They even cheered the nomination of Robert Bork (1987), whose book, Slouching Toward Gomorrah, illustrates the absurdity of the pro-lifers supporting his nomination by Ronald Reagan and Planned Parenthood opposing it, even though as a federal judge he himself was not opposed to abortion. And even though Scalia publicly assured the abortion lobby that as long as they followed the process, and passed pro-abortion laws, he would approve and uphold them, still, pro-life industry leaders pretend that he was a hero for the unborn child.

CBS 4 Airs CRTL Warning on the Defunding Diversion

CBS News 4 In Denver relayed this warning from anti-abortion activist:

Susan Sutherland with Colorado Right to Life [who] said that defunding Planned Parenthood would not accomplish the greater goal. "Planned Parenthood could be defunded today, and they'll have plenty of funds," Sutherland said. "They'll have any number of people who'll step in and fund them … we need to abolish abortion, because it is the murder of innocent children."

* The Defunding Diversion: After 41 years of the failed Republican effort to defund Planned Parenthood (since the impotent Hyde Amendment passed in 1976), even if successful, the dozens of billionaires who aggressively support the abortion industry could double any lost funds overnight. Here's a grim reminder of the actual track record of a few of the top "pro-life" Republicans on abortion and even on abortion funding:
- George W. Bush gave Planned Parenthood a billion dollars more than did Bill Clinton ($2.2B total, with Republican control of Congress and the Supreme Court, and while the meaningless Hyde Amendment was in force).
- George H. W. Bush began "Family Planning" Title X funding which has ever since filled Planned Parenthood's coffers with tax dollars.
- Speaker of the House Rep. Paul Ryan (R) says abortionists should not get one red cent and then without a fight willingly fully funded Planned Parenthood for Barack Obama for 2016. 
- Roe v. Wade was written by Republican Justice Blackmun, passed with a Republican majority on the vote of five Republican Justices, and enforced even through the years when Republicans controlled the executive, legislative (both houses), and judicial branch (with 60% of the federal judiciary and seven of nine on the Supreme Court).

"Pro-life" Republican politicians have demonstrated how easy it is to get Christian votes, and to distract them from the fight to end child killing, by lying to them on the topic of defunding. Donald Trump has even said not too long ago about Planned Parenthood that he is willing to fund the "many, many good things they do", that is, when they're not dismembering children.

* Worst Abortion Video Yet Makes Point About Fraudulent "Defunding" Efforts: As referenced in this 2-minute YouTube, consider how the Republican party and Bush family have provided record funding to Planned Parenthood:
