DONALD TRUMP has said that "women should be punished for having an abortion." In an interview with MSNBC, Trump was pushed hard about his views on abortion and his belief that it should be outlawed.
After the interview, Trump released a statement in which he attempted to backtrack, saying that it should be up to individual states to decide.
Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, and let her be burnt. -- Genesis 38:24
27God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth
In Luke 1:41,44 there are references to the unborn John the Baptist, who was at the end of his second trimester in the womb. The word, translated baby, in these verses is the Greek word brephos. It is the same word used for the already born baby Jesus (Luke 2:12, 16) and for the babies brought to Jesus to receive His blessing (Luke 18:15-17). It is also the same word used in Acts 7:19 for the newborn babies killed by Pharaoh. To the writers of the New Testament, like the Old, whether born or unborn, a baby is simply a baby. It appears that the preborn John the Baptist responded to the presence of the preborn Jesus in His mother Mary when Jesus was probably no more than ten days beyond His conception (Luke 1:41).
41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: 42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
Meredith Cline observes, "The most significant thing about abortion legislation in Biblical law is that there is none. It was so unthinkable that an Israelite woman should desire an abortion that there was no need to mention this offense in the criminal code."  All that was necessary to prohibit an abortion was the command, “You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13). Every Israelite knew that the preborn child was indeed a child. Therefore, miscarriage was always viewed as the loss of a child and abortion as the killing of a child.
The prophets of Israel were outraged at the sacrifice of children by some of the Jews. They warned that it would result in the devastating judgment of God on their society (Jeremiah 7:30-34; Ezekiel 16:20-21, 36-38; 20:31; compare 2 Kings 21:2-6 and Jeremiah 15:3-4).
For Roe Under the Bill of Rights, a woman has the right to terminate her pregnancy. It is improper for a State to deny individuals the personal, marital, familial, and sexual right to privacy. Moreover, in no case in its history has the Court declared that a fetus—a developing infant in the womb—is a person. Therefore, the fetus cannot be said to have any legal "right to life." Because it is unduly intrusive, the Texas law is unconstitutional and should be overturned.
For Wade The State has a duty to protect prenatal life. Life is present at the moment of conception. The unborn are people, and as such are entitled to protection under the Constitution. The Texas law is a valid exercise of police powers reserved to the States in order to protect the health and safety of citizens, including the unborn. The law is constitutional and should be upheld.
Decision and Rationale
By a vote of 7–2, with Justices White and Rehnquist in dissent, the Court agreed with Roe and upheld her right to terminate a pregnancy in the first trimester (90 days). The Court observed that Section 1 of the 14th Amendment contained three references to "person." In his majority opinion, Justice Blackmun noted that, for nearly all such references in the Constitution, "use of the word is such that it has application only postnatally. None indicates, with any assurance, that it has any possible prenatal application."
Approaching the matter of when life begins, Blackmun was clearly hesitant to commit the Court to any position.
Roe V. Wade stands out as one of the most infamous cases ever decided in history. On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court granted a young mother the "right of choice" to take the life of the developing child in her womb. She never exercised that right, but there have now been over 58 million precious lives sacrificed on this altar of "choice"—a whole generation. Roe V. Wade will be forever remembered as the day when America said that death is the acceptable choice for "unwanted life."
A new generation of women was faced with a decision they could not responsibly handle. For some, abortion seemed to be the simplest solution to their "problem." If a patient was not secure about the final outcome of their choice they were firmly persuaded by those who were. These women were often motivated by doubts about the reality of the personhood of the child within their womb. Often a doctor would begin practicing on the premise that they were just trying to save the life of the mother and then progress to performing abortions on a regular basis. Eventually, abortion was a common practice among some physicians and generally accepted by women as their "right".
Unmarried women accounted for 85.3% of all abortions(CDC).
1% (of aborting women) reported that they were the survivors of rape (NAF).
Norma McCorvey is “Jane Roe.” She claimed then that her pregnancy was the result of a rape, although for over a decade now she has been outspokenly pro-lifeand publicly admitted that this, and virtually every fact on which her case was built, was a lie. Both McCorvey and Sandra Cano, the Doe of Doe v. Bolton—Roe’s companion case from Georgia decided the same day—are now outspoken pro-life advocates who have sworn that their cases are built on lies (Cano unfortunately passed away in October 2014).
Give them, O LORD–what will You give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts.
The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open.
2 Kings 15:16
At that time Menahem, starting out from Tirzah, attacked Tiphsah and everyone in the city and its vicinity, because they refused to open their gates. He sacked Tiphsah and ripped open all the pregnant women.
1 Samuel 15:3
Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.
Happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us. He who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.
The only thing that's going to make America "great, again" is repentance! Admit you're wrong and change course. That simple!

Do you really wonder why the nation is in the shape it's in? Do you really think someone like Trump can make it "great, again"? The only thing that's going to make America "great, again" is repentance! Admit you're wrong and change course. That simple!
Have you ever had a miscarriage? Even very early, after you have already fallen in love with the child you are carrying?
