Tweating Abortions

I do not know what to say in regards to where our culture is taking us, other than this is a prime example of man's nature on display.

This 27-year old and her boyfriend think they have life and death figured out (Genesis 2:9), that they have "life" in the palm of their hand (Prov 14:12; 21:2). We see that these views come from her rejection of God specifically as NewsBusters points out:
...During the interview, Phillips tossed softball questions at blogger Angie Jackson, who is known on Twitter as "antitheistangie," or "Angie the Anti-Theist" on her blog (Phillips didn't mention her guest's political or philosophical outlook during the entire segment). After playing a clip of Jackson from YouTube.com, Phillips first asked, "So, Angie- you know, did it take a while to come to a comfort zone, that you wanted to do this? Tell me how you eventually decided, this is how I'm going to do it and I'm going to let everybody see it happen."

Once the "anti-theist" blogger gave her initial answer, Phillips played another clip of her guest from YouTube, where the blogger flatly admitted, "Yes, it had the potential for that embryo to become a fetus, to become a person....But it was more likely to kill me, and you're not going to shame me....I do not feel sorry that I saved my life. I do not feel sorry that I stayed here for myself, for my boyfriend, for my kid that I've already got."...
It is sad to see this 27-year old and her boyfriend beleiveing that they have an understanding of life and death apart from God in their grasp (Genesis 2:9), and that they think they have understanding beyond their current situation (Proverbs 14:12; 21:2). Romans 8:5-8 speaks to this well:
Those who think they can do it on their own end up obsessed with measuring their own moral muscle but never get around to exercising it in real life. Those who trust God's action in them find that God's Spirit is in them—living and breathing God! Obsession with self in these matters is a dead end; attention to God leads us out into the open, into a spacious, free life. Focusing on the self is the opposite of focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in self ignores God, ends up thinking more about self than God. That person ignores who God is and what he is doing. And God isn't pleased at being ignored.
God does not like to be ignored for he is a Jealous God in our midst, whether we see Him or make our own will a god (Deuteronomy 6:15). There will be a time of Reckoning for not only Angie's callousness, but also all those who do not clothe themselves in the finished work of Christ on the Cross (Revelations 19:7-8). Jill Stanek points out that this whole process even caught Angie off gurd who thought that "her abortion would... [be a simple]... '4 hour bleed-out'," not realizing that some girls have died because of this process of interrupting the natural process and change of a woman's bodily functions. Changing nature is often times painful and/or deadly, as Jill points out:
...For 9 days, from Feb. 19-27, Jackson tweeted about such severe cramps she had difficulty walking across the room. She went through 17 Vicodin in 6 days and at a point soon after requesting a prescription for another 20.
Jackson tweeted nausea, vomiting, backaches, headaches and bleeding. 5 days into her abortion experience, Angie commented on another blog, "Honestly I had no idea this would go on so long. I thought the entire abortion would take a few hours, as I'd read in a few stories...."
Before I post Jill's continuing article at World Net Daily, I want to answer some of Angie's comments or questions below, and this comes from a previous post. Angie asks after mentioning she missed her normal period why no one yells at her for bleeding during her normal periods. She misses the point that Kathy Ireland points out to Bill Maher:

Kathy Ireland, many years ago, was on Bill Mahers Politically Incorrect and the discussion that ensued shows the frailty of the liberal/relativistic position:
Bill Maher: Kathy, why do you oppose a women’s right to choose?
Kathy Ireland: Bill, when my husband was going to medical school I underwent a transformation. Because I used to be in favor of abortion. But I noticed when I was reading through some of his medical teaching books, that according to a law in science known as the law of biogenesis, every living thing reproduces after it own kind. That means dog produce dogs, cats produce cats, humans produce humans. If we want to know what something is we simply ask what are its parents. If we know what the parents are, we know what the thing in question is. And I reasoned from that because human parents can only produce human offspring, unborn human fetuses could be nothing but human beings, because the law of biogenesis rules out every other alternative. And I concluded therefore that because human fetuses were part of our family, we should not harm them without justification.
In October 2002, Kathy Ireland made a compelling argument against abortion on the Fox News Channel's Hannity and Colmes political debate show. Alan Colmes described Ireland's opinions as religious, but Ireland said that her views on abortion do not stem from faith. She asserted that even atheists could realize that abortion is wrong. Kathy told Alan that her belief is founded in science and technology, which she says, "has come a long way since Roe vs. Wade."
Ireland also defended her values as being pro-women, stating, "We need to support these women who are in crisis pregnancy situations." She claimed that because scientific evidence proves that abortion is murder, "I have no choice but to defend the most vulnerable among us."
I also wanted to let this "potentiality" speak for herself:

Here are some of the Tweets Jill had in her WND article showing more insights from Angie
