What You Should Know
Sen. Rev. Rubén Díaz
900 Rogers Place, Bronx NY 10459
I am State Senator Rubén Díaz and I represent the 32nd Senatorial District in Bronx County. You should know that I am also an Ordained Minister of the Church of God with headquarters in Cleveland, Tennessee, the Pastor of Christian Community Neighborhood Church located at 1437 Longfellow Avenue Bronx, NY and the President of the New York Hispanic Clergy Organization.
You should know that Governor Cuomo and members of the Legislature are in the process of pushing and approving the Reproductive Health Act. This legislation will make abortion on demand a reality in the State of New York.
Today, I feel privileged to write to you about the unborn in America and I would like to start with two questions: First, what is an abortion? And second is a fetus a life? Simply stated, an abortion is the termination of a pregnancy and the destruction of a fetus.
You should know that before January 22nd, 1973, (39 years ago), which I call a day of infamy in American history, abortions were illegal in most states and were only performed for extreme circumstances.
In 1970, a lady by the name of Sarah Weddington, a lawyer from Texas went to court and filed a lawsuit on behalf of a pregnant woman named Norma McCorrey. This lady, Norma McCorrey did not want her name to be released therefore she went under the alias of Jane Roe.
The purpose of that lawsuit was to overturn the State of Texas anti-abortion laws. The lawsuit charged that the laws in Texas were unconstitutional and that they violated women's rights under the first, fourth, fifth, ninth and fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution.
You also should know that it was then-Dallas District Attorney Henry Wade who was in charge of defending the State of Texas in that historic case which came to be known as Roe Versus Wade.
You should know that since that day of infamy, January 22nd 1973, every year, more than 1.5 million abortions are conducted in America. That means that in the past 39 years at the rate of 4,000 babies each day, we will have killed and slaughtered 60 million American citizens.
Now let’s go back to the original question:
Is a fetus a life? The abortionists, meaning those that are pro-abortion or pro-choice say that “the fetus is not really a life, that it is just a blob of tissue”. But what does the Bible say about that? The Bible says in Leviticus 17:11 and I quote "The life of the flesh is in the blood.” That means God is the giver of life and He says that where there is blood there is life.
According to the Bible, there is a price for killing or harming life in the womb of the mother. The Bible says in Exodus Chapter 21 verses 21-23 “if men strive and hurt a woman with child so that her fruit departs from her and she has a miscarriage or aborted pregnancy and yet no mischief follows, he shall be punished according to the woman’s husband but if any mischief follows meaning loss of life, then he should pay a life for a life.”
What God says here is, that if you hurt a pregnant woman and she loses the baby, you have to pay a penalty not because it was a blob of tissue that you killed, but because it was a life.
The prophet Isaiah in his book chapter 49 says that "The Lord has called me from the womb, from the matrix of my mother he has made mention of my name. The Lord called me from the womb of my mother to be his servant.”
Finally, and in conclusion: To the abortionists, and pro-choicers, and to everyone else, let it be known that there is no doubt in my mind that life starts at the time of conception. Let it be known and let it be written, that God is the creator of life and that He as the creator is the only one that can take it away.
Ladies and Gentlemen, what can we do to stop the killing of unborn babies?
First, stop voting for politicians who are pro-abortion and pro-choice. Democrats, Republican, what-ever they call themselves; if they are pro-abortion they should not get our support.
Do you know why our government is in such chaos and confusion? It is because our legislators and judges are in violation of the word of God. President Harry Truman once said “A group of donkeys could not have Washington in a greater mess than what it is now.” Oliver North called Washington Sodom and Gomorra on the Potomac.
Second, when we Christians, Catholics, Evangelicals and God fearing people learn to get involved and start going to the voting booths and vote for PRO-LIFERS then we will see change. When that happens, no president, no senators, and no congressmen will get to Washington or to Albany without our support.
Third, forget about being politically correct by being Pro-Choice. Let me tell you something:
A) Hitler was pro-choice. He chose to send the Jews to Auschwitz. That was not their choice that was Hitler's choice.
B) Murderers, assassins and criminals are pro-choice. They choose to put a gun to your head and take your life. That is not your choice. That is their choice.
C) The baby in your womb will not choose the saline solution that will burn his or her skin away nor will he choose the forceps that will crack his little head off. That is not their choice, that is your choice.
D) Some of you reading this article may have had an abortion in the past. You should now that I am not trying to put a guilt trip on you or place you under condemnation. God can and will forgive your participation, willing or unwilling, in an abortion. If you have not asked him for forgiveness before, I pray that you will.
God loves you and wants to restore you and wants to reunite you, one day, with that aborted child in eternity.
God bless you, God bless America, and God bless all the pro-life people in the world!
I am State Senator Rubén Díaz and this is what you should know.
