“I want people to understand these placental abruptions that lead to dead fetuses. I want them to know some are born alive but too young to resuscitate so you hold them until they die.”

  1. This posting causes me to literally sob and to cry out to God to please make it stop…dear God, have mercy! For those who have been awake from the beginning, the death and destruction is becoming unbearable. And yet, many continue to sleep….. how can it be?! Keep sharing….and I will keep sharing. “3He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds. 4He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. 5Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. 6The Lord lifts up the humble; He casts the wicked down to the ground.” Psalms 147:3-6
