Classrooms without Walls  - Roman's Story | Save the Children

16-year-old Roman dropped out of school last year because her classroom lacked proper infrastructure and space for her to learn. The classrooms are made of thorny branches, dried grass and metal scraps. Children like Roman walk long distances, anywhere between 30 minutes to one hour, to come to school to sit in a open classroom with no shade or desks. This is one of the most basic elements necessary to ensure access to education. Girls like Roman aren't getting the education they deserve. Sponsor a girls education today: https://bit.ly/2BBCg1d

How Are Newborns Who Are Relinquished at Birth Kept Safe?

In 1999, Texas became the first U.S. state to tackle the problem of abandoned babies, some of whom were being left in trash bins or suffering other ghastly fates after being born outside the hospital system. The state enacted what was known as a Baby Moses Law, a safe-haven law designed to save lives by encouraging parents to surrender infants safely. In 2016, activist Monica Kelsey took that idea a step further when she convinced Indiana to install Safe Haven Baby Boxes at fire stations. A mother who wants to surrender her baby safely and anonymously can now simply place the infant in a baby hatch, which typically resembles a bank’s night deposit box.

A safe place for abandoned infants:

🕊 Here’s how the system typically works: When a person opens the baby box, a call is immediately placed to 911, and fire and medical personnel are dispatched. When closed, the box locks automatically.


🕊 The box is padded and climate controlled to keep the baby warm while still allowing air circulation. The baby gets immediate attention, and typically becomes a candidate for adoption later on.



Supporters say safe-haven laws provide an alternative to abortion, infanticide or unsafe child abandonment . Detractors argue that the laws, now in force nationwide, favor mothers and sometimes violate a father’s rights.

https://www.wisegeek.com/how-are-newborns-who-are-relinquished-at-birth-kept-safe.htm

Agelbert NOTE: I am certain that medical "ethicist" (SEE: Orwell) 😈 Ezekiel Emanuel would argue that the Baby Moses Law is "not justified", and it would be "better" for all these unwanted babies to have been aborted or, if they made it to being born, "efficiently" used as food for lions in a zoo, or some other "profitable" use. To a Social Darwinist like Ezekiel Emanuel, unwanted babies are a "burden on society" that, if society acted "rationally and reasonably", could  be "profitably repurposed" by recognizing the fact that, after all, they are just tender, nutritious protein packages a carnivore could gain healthy caloric intake from eating, "nothing more". Medical Doctors of the idiological persuasion of Ezekiel Emanuel are quite willing to make the, uh, "hard choices"  that those of us who labor under the "quaint, unrealistic and inefficient" view that we have a moral imperative to treat others as we want others to treat us are too "silly and superstitious" to make.

Message to the Social Darwinists: What goes around, comes around.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
-- Romans 1:28-32

Agelbert COMMENT: Pastor Mike Winger is right.
Abortion is murder. I believe that disingenuously convincing people to commit (and justify) this act is a Satanic strategy to bind the parents who supported the abortion in sin in order to alienate them from the path to Salvation through Christ. It is tantamount to the ancient barbarous pagan practice of child sacrifice.
 
I suspect that the demonic purpose of influencing humans to commit these heinous acts against the innocent has always been to convince people that, once the murder is carried out, they must justify their act through whatever rationalizations, no matter how illogical, threadbare or blatantly contradictory. Thus, though they may experience worldly grief from aborting their unborn child, the demonic plan is to keep them from ever experiencing Godly grief.
II Corintians 7:10 For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.
God is merciful. Don't let the Devil or his pagan followers convince you that you cannot be forgiven if you genuinely repent through Godly grief.
Repent with Godly grief and come to Christ. 🌞

This note on my car showed me just how HORRIFYING pro-choice logic is


Mike Winger    327K subscribers

I have a bumper sticker on my car that occasionally causes pro-choice people to want to interact with me.   In this case, someone left a note on my windshield explaining why she thinks I wasn't aborted and thinks it's not only allowable to kill babies in the womb but that it is morally required! I'm going to walk through the logic of this note and try to show why I think it demonstrates the same thinking in pro-choice people that was present in almost every genocide in history. Yes, it's that bad. And until we all see it as being that bad we will be likely to fall into the continual moral compromise of our worldly culture.

My mother is/was a type 1 diabetic in the late 70s when I was born. My grandmother begged my mom to abort me because being pregnant was literally killing her and putting me at risk as well. My mom said she couldn’t do it, she wouldn’t go against god even it meant me living and her dying. Needless to say I was their only child...but!

43 years later she has 2 wonderful grandchildren that love her dearly and I’m thankful she chose obedience to Christ and to life! Thanks mom!!

The video enactment of what a Dr does during all 3 trimesters of an abortion was unbelievably frightening. I didn’t really educate myself on the process just always felt it morally wrong and is a legal act of murder. I wasn’t prepared to see what is actually done from an abortion. My heart hurts. I had a pregnancy at 20 years old out of wedlock. I had a a “friend” who encouraged an abortion. I am sickened that I actually gave it a thought. But I knew it was wrong. It absolutely felt wrong. A couple of weeks later I went to the Dr to have an ultrasound…. Twins! God blessed my body to carry 2 healthy babies to full term. I made a hard decision but the right decision to place my twins with a family who couldn’t have children. I went through the adoption process, picked a family and let me tell y’all… the twins (I’m going to leave their names out of it) had an amazing life. We reunited when they were 16 years old. And have stayed in touch since. Baby girl is in the marines and baby boy is in college hoping to work at the UN.
I am pro life, always will be. Men need to feel comfortable standing against it too w/o the fear of “it’s a woman’s body. Her body, her choice” nonsense.
Thanks for this Mike. Grace, Peace and a truth.

Perhaps this has been said before...

A researcher on attending a village that had cannibals in it found a curious thing when observing a feast. The village held a ceremony to remove the humanity from the intended victims. The victims thereafter were no longer people, but simply animals. Then and only then could they have their feast.

Strikes the same chords as the pro-choice folks out there. The pro-choice people have to remove the humanity from the child in order to allow the children to be killed. By calling them embryos, parasites, "clump of cells", they are then able to do the deed without thinking of themselves as killers of children.

It honestly still blows my mind that the completed initial development of a human being takes only 9 months (even younger than that and they are still developed enough to live). And yet full development takes about 25 years. A young child who cannot speak or walk yet isn't less of a human because they haven't developed those skills. The pre-frontal cortex of the brain doesn't fully develop until your mid-twenties. Are they less valuable because they're "underdeveloped"? Should babies with dwarfism and a small stature be considered less human too? I can't believe what people think.

Nov 21 2021 By Kevin O'Connor


Vermont has a plan to end homelessness. So why is there still a problem?

SNIPPETS:

“Homelessness has been a challenge in Vermont for years,” Angus Chaney, one of the report’s authors, said recently. “It’s usually an indicator of some other system — economics, mental health, substance use — that’s broken or overwhelmed.” ... ...

If we can house so many people to keep them from getting or making others sick during a public health crisis, then we should be able to house them for their permanent well-being and dignity,” the Rev. Debbie Ingram, executive director of Vermont Interfaith Action, said at a press conference this month. ... ...

“There has been an unusual fixation on what’s going to make somebody eligible for the state’s general assistance program,” Chaney said. “But unless there is a medium- and a long-term strategy, we’ll be dealing with the same crisis in another year.”


“Homelessness,” the council went on to write, “can be encountered across all age and demographic groups, and, like poverty, can impact veterans, workers in low-wage jobs, persons struggling with substance abuse or mental health crises, victims of domestic violence, and almost any other vulnerable population.” ... ...

... the state’s first problem: Although Vermont social service agencies annually count clients facing homelessness — 2,591 this past winter, up from 1,160 in 2012 — they stress that the federally required one-day survey misses many who are “couch surfing” or unseen on the streets.

Whatever the full number — advocates estimate it to be consistently closer to 3,000 — they know shelters can’t host everyone. That’s why the council has called for more prevention measures, economic and social support and, most importantly, long-term places to live.

“The state should reduce reliance on hotels and motels,” its 2012 plan said, “and move towards affordable permanent housing.”

But only months after the report’s release, the state ended its 2012-13 fiscal year with a $4 million bill for temporary lodging — eight times the $500,000 tab of five years earlier, when it relaxed its rules that once limited aid to those fleeing a fire, natural disaster or domestic violence.

State leaders, seeing temporary lodging applicants rise from 548 households in 2008 to 2,851 in 2013, have tried to curb the figure ever since. They argue motel rooms don’t offer incentive to find shelter with friends or relatives or a path toward permanent housing, but instead divert money from rental subsidies and support services to help with education, employment and health care.

Local social service workers, for their part, counter that without temporary lodging, they often can offer little more than tents and sleeping bags.

It’s a very hard job — we’re balancing limited resources and seemingly unlimited needs,” Dave Yacovone, former head of the state Department for Children and Families, said in 2013 at the start of the ongoing and often diversionary debate. “Wherever you draw a line, there are people who won’t be served.” ... ...

The pandemic has compounded the problem. Many people lack shelter not only because of economic pressures, experts say, but also because some can’t stay with family or friends or were released from prison early because of physical distancing concerns.

“We have some really good programs — financial assistance for security deposits, rental subsidies, case management — to help people move in and get started,” Chaney said. “But the immediate challenge for us right now is the supply of housing. There isn’t anything vacant to rent.” ... ...

What the pandemic has brought to light is the degree to which we have negligently underinvested in our housing system,” the Vermont Interfaith 🕊️ Action coalition of more than 70 spiritual communities wrote in a recent report. “We are now blessed with the opportunity to correct that deficiency. Not only is it the morally right thing to do, but it is also the economically right thing to do.”

Faith leaders argue that allocating money for permanent housing would cost significantly less than continuing the status quo.   

Providing stable housing reduces the downstream costs of poor physical and mental health, substance use disorders, educational support for students whose primary challenge is chaos and trauma, and ultimately, the costs in our criminal justice and corrections systems,” they wrote in their report.
