Miscellaneous: Games and the Freedom of Choice Act

Instead of doing 2 separate blogs, I decided to just do both together, so I hope you don't think I find these two topics in any way connected, because they aren't.

Well, I just wanted to announce that we have some news games to sell. We have Guillotine- a French revolution card game, Lost Cities- another card game about expeditions- 2 player game, and we have the Yucatan Adventure Board which is to be used with Settlers of Catan and the expansions- it holds all of your pieces together on a board with insets. Please check them out or refer a friend! http://tucksmedia.blogspot.com/

Freedom of Choice Act
This is an act I feel very strongly should NOT be passed. President-elect Obama has already stated he would sign this as soon as he gets in office. This act would lessen the restrictions on abortions nationwide.
This website has more information and a petition to fight against this act. http://www.fightfoca.com/
I think it sad that in the video on this website, there is a reporter that states that legislation has taken the rights away from women when they make legislation against abortion. I just had a few things to say regarding that.
There are always those cases brought up about those women who are pregnant due to rape, incest or some other heinous act. But that is not the case with the majority of abortions. The majority of abortions are from teenage girls, or even grown women, who find the pregnancy "inconvenient". They don't want anyone to know about the pregnancy or it just "isn't the right time". There are also abortions when the baby is not going to develop properly; despite the several miracle stories we have heard about babies with such warnings who turn out perfectly fine. What these women are wanting with the Freedom of Choice Act is to escape responsibility. They were irresponsible and did not use protection or did not implement abstinence and now these poor babies are having to take the fall. Birth control is very accessible and yet these women would rather end another life instead of facing the consequences of their actions. There are many who would love to adopt these unwanted children. Abortion is a sad, twisted evil and despite what these women think, legislation should protect these innocent little ones. Jesus said:
Matthew 18:6
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Jesus said it, not me.
