In other words, "With today's technology, I don't have to be responsible anymore; I can do what I want, even if it means killing another human being - especially one that can't defend itself"....
But who can blame her? We all endure life's circumstances and situations that cause us to react in certain ways, especially if we've come from a less than happy past. Jackson cited an abusive childhood in a religious cult and problems with her first pregnancy as her justification. Plus, she is a professed atheist, and atheists go by their own rules as they see fit. You cannot preach God's morality to atheists, simple as that.
They do not know about nor believe in God; nor do they realize that on Judgment Day they they will get to stand before the Creator Himself to explain their life's decisions. The fact that more than 300 Bible prophecies have already been fulfilled and we are now experiencing the last few because we are in the end times as outlined in the Books of Daniel and Revelation - well, that means nothing to atheists. They just don't know....All they know is, they don't "believe" in God and therefore, they are free to live their lives as they choose without rules.
All we really know about Jackson whose Twitter name is 'antitheistangie' is that she wanted to "demystify" abortion, and therefore felt compelled to share it on Twitter, YouTube and a personal blog. "My goal is to stay alive," she said, "and the best chance of that is to have an abortion. It is not shameful. It is not killing a child."
It must not never have occurred to her that she could have died during this procedure:
According to a 2007 article by Michelle Gress (who served as counsel to the House Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy and Human Resources that investigated the FDA’s approval of RU-486), RU-486 has caused a tremendously high rate of adverse events relative to the number of women who have taken the drug. As of last year, when the FDA provided information to the Subcommittee for its investigation, RU-486 had caused the deaths of at least eight women, nine life-threatening incidents, 232 hospitalizations, 116 blood transfusions, and 88 cases of infection. In total, we knew of more than 1070 adverse event cases associated with RU-486, out of only 575,000 prescriptions at most. This is even more alarming in light of the fact that adverse event reporting is notoriously low for any drug, much less a drug associated with abortion, for which reporting is expected to be even lower.
According to a 2006 Associated Press Release by Andrew Bridges on 03-18-2006: Two more women have died after using the abortion pill RU-486, regulators said Friday in a warning that brought renewed demands to pull the controversial drug from the market....The organization that provided the pill to the two women said it would stop immediately disregarding the approved instructions for the pill's use....The Food and Drug Administration warned doctors to watch for a rare but deadly infection previously implicated in four deaths of women who had taken the drug....
But, as with most atheists, Angie Jackson is her own god who does as she pleases; her life is all about "me" and my needs and damn the consequences. And while she's at it, she is attempting to collect as many supporters as possible. (God only knows how many millions she has now, after today's stunt!) Somehow having supporters in your court, whether you're right or wrong, makes everything okay....
Some nagging questions remain, however:
If it's not killing a child, what should it be called? After all, the fetus is ALIVE, or else it wouldn't grow. Just because it doesn't immediately start out as a fully-developed human being from the moment of conception, it IS a human being in the stages of development - miraculous stages that reveal God's awesome Creation. Creation takes time; we grow from the moment of conception and don't stop until we reach our early twenties. So why isn't it okay to kill a six year old or a teenager, or even a 20 year old?
Oh that's right - they "become children" after they're born. Until then, they're just fetuses with no rights....After all, we can't hear them talk or cry, and hey, what we can see on that TV monitor isn't "the real thing"; it's just an image....
Well, here is some bad news for pro-abortionists: According to a 2006 article at Science Daily researchers at Yale and Oxford have identified "the very first neurons" in 31-day old embryos that later develop into the cerebral cortex...the part of the brain that "makes humans human ... "
It is obvious that Jackson felt some guilt pangs, or else she wouldn't have bothered trying to justify her abortion - much less portraying it in gory detail to the entire world. No, her need to come off as an example for others to follow was borne out of guilt and defiance against God and those who believe in Him. It was nothing more than schoolyard bully behavior that attempts to force people to accept the perpetrator's actions or ideology. In Jackson's case it was as if she was saying: "I realize that by shacking up and having premarital sex I am going against the very principles set by the God I have rejected. And so here I am shouting it to the world and shoving it down your throats before you have a chance to attack me."
Jackson voiced her surprise over the viciousness exhibited by many: "But now I have people calling me a killer, it's surreal....I've just been astonished by the level of hatred and death threats and threats of violence against my son. It's been a very ugly side of people to see."
It apparently hasn't dawned on her that abortion is a very volatile subject, especially among "the religious" who value life and became angry when Jackson so callously and in very low and demonic tones shoved her personal business down the world's collective throat. It hasn't dawned on her that killing a fetus is NOT a "cool thing" to do, regardless of her own history or present situation. It hasn't dawned on her that, whether she "believes" or not, YHWH (Yahweh/God) throughout the entire Bible condemns murder!
Many pro-abortionists (which also includes some Christians) insist that abortion is not mentioned in the Bible, and therefore, God left it up to us. The fact is, abortion is not mentioned in the Bible because it is a relatively new and modern term; it was something unheard of two- to five-thousand years ago, let alone, possible or practiced. In those days, nobody thought of invading their own bodies in order to get rid of an unwanted pregnancy. Except for prostitutes and those who had no choice because they were somehow taken as slaves, women didn't have sex outside of marriage! If they did they were considered "damaged goods" and often ostracized. Children were considered "gifts from God" and most wouldn't have dared to kill them inside the womb our out!
Today, everything YHWH has ever considered "bad" is now considered "good" and vice-versa! The Ten Commandments? Heck, those "Old Testament" rules don't apply to us anymore! Even many Christians insist that today we only need to follow two commandments - to love God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself. There's nothing about not murdering or committing adultery or worshipping "other gods." They haven't quite figured out that the rest of that particular scripture goes on to tell us that these two commandments hang or are dependent on those two commands:
Matthew 22: 36 36. "Teacher, which Commandment in Torah is the greatest?" 37. And Y'shua said to him, that "You should love Master YHWH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might and with all your mind." 38. This is the first and the greatest Commandment. 39. And the second is like it. That "You should love your neighbor as yourself." 40. On these two commandments hang Torah and the prophets. (AENT)
FOOTNOTE from the Aramaic English New Testament: Torah and Prophets hang or "hold on by" these two great Commandments of Love. Those who do the Commandments, are they who love YHWH (Matt 19:17; 1 John 5:2 and 3). Without love, observance of Torah is vanity, and without Torah one's "love" is vanity.
In view of the above, it's no wonder today's women believe abortion is a perfectly normal alternative to pregnancy. It's all about ME and that's what matters....
Regardless as to one's belief, the bottom line is, GOD is our Creator; it is HE and ONLY He who has the ability to create life or take it away! Throughout the Bible we can see how adamant he is about murder and, consequently, in the grand scheme of "HIS WILL BE DONE," women cannot "choose abortion." (Since atheists are reading this, I won't bother to include all the verses, but believers know where to find them!)
All we can really do is to pray for that tiny, aborted and nameless infant who never had a chance at life because of its mother's selfishness. May it rest safely in the arms of God!
Jackson signed off with the words: "I wish everybody on YouTube a great and godless day"....What a sad commentary on our lost and decadent world! We, at The Refiner's Fire, pray that the Holy Spirit would descend on Angie Jackson and bring her to her senses while there is still time to repent.
Judging from the world events we are IN the end times, and the time for pussy-footing around when it comes to God is over with. He has offered us eternal life through His Son Yeshua Maschiyach (whom Christians call Jesus Christ). People have the choice to accept it, or not. On Judgment Day it will be too late!
