Rebecca Kiessling knows what its like to be targeted by abortion. She is one of the rare people to escape an abortion after her birthmother became pregnant following a sexual assault.
But Kiessling was targeted more directly today when she testified before local lawmakers in support of a pro-life resolution. Laughing at her story of how she survived an abortion that too frequently claims the lives of unborn children conceived in rape, they passed a resolution supporting abortions in cases of rape or incest as an in your face gesture.
As Kiessling shares her story:
This morning, I testified before the Oakland County Commissioners in Pontiac, MI on a resolution to make October 2013 Respect Life month. Two weeks ago, after I testified at a committee hearing, a female Democrat from Pontiac, MI asked to be added as a sponsor! It was unexpected and we were all pleased. However, the rest of the Democrats in the County Commission were very upset by this resolution and so, she was a no-show today so that she wouldnt be in a position of having to vote against her caucus.
Upon my arrival, I was immediately told by the resolutions sponsor Republican Jim Runestad, that the five Democrats present had an amendment to propose to affirm that a woman has a right to an abortion. The Commissioners Chair ruled that it was not germane the resolution at hand, which merely makes October 2013 Respect Life month and encourages all citizens to celebrate the value of human life and those who protect it every day. With a 13-5 vote, the Commissioners upheld the Chairs ruling.
During public statements on the resolution, three of us gave statements in support of the resolution me, Chris Zielinski the field representative from Right to Life of Michigan, and Peter Riccardo the Director of Mother & Unborn Baby Care in Southfield. I introduced myself and shared my story of having been conceived in rape and nearly aborted at two back-alley abortions, but spared because I was legally protected in Michigan at the time.
CLICK LIKE IF YOURE PRO-LIFE!
Unlike prior experiences Ive had in testifying before legislatures where hearts and minds were changed on the issue, in response, the pro-abort Democrats introduced a new amendment: BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners believe that women who are raped or victims of incest should not be forced by their government to carry out a pregnancy. Laughing amongst each other, this was an in-your-face resolution to issue the death penalty to me, and to those who are similarly-situated, but they were gloating that they introduced it in front of me.
Well, once again, the Chair ruled that the proposed Amendment was not germane to the Resolution and the Commissioners voted 13-5 in support of the Chairs ruling on it. The final vote in support of the Resolution was 14-5. The five Democrats were McGillivray, Zack, Woodward, Quarles and Gershenson. Woodward gave a speech before the final vote, vowing to fight with all of his being should anyone ever try to take away his two young daughters right to an abortion, declaring, I will meet you in the back alley!
This resolution didnt have any teeth to it it was symbolic, to try to begin to create a culture of life in our County, but the cruel treatment of the abortion supporters was at a peak. They had a face to the issue but they couldnt wait to issue the death penalty. And thats how they show how much they care about women like me.
Respond to the commissioners here. http://www.oakgov.com/boc/Pages/default.aspx
To quote Dr. Ian Malcolm from "Jurassic Park": " Gee, the lack of humility before nature that's being displayed here, uh... staggers me."
I this case, I would support the late term abortion of these five despicable legislators.
The proper term is “retroactive abortion”.
Thanks. I stand corrected.
I wonder if they will still be laughing as they are plunging, head first, into the lake of fire that burns forever?...........
Obama is a bastard child neglected by both parents and they made him their president.
Matthew 24:3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, I am the Christ, and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My names sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
Same old story.
They want as many abortions as possible, especially of minorities, and they will stop at nothing to get their way.
“Laughing amongst each other, this was an in-your-face resolution to issue the death penalty to me,”
This is the face of evil!
