Abortionists Sue the State of Arkansas

July 7, 2019

I am very thankful for Jerry Cox and the Arkansas Family Council. Jerry and his team have been on the front lines at our state capital for years fighting for Godly values. Arkansas has some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country partly due to the diligence of The Arkansas Family Council. May God continue to bless Jerry and the rest of those working so hard to uphold righteousness in our wonderful state.

Election Results November 2016

“The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment, also known as Issue 6, is an amendment to Arkansas’ state constitution that officially legalizes the distribution and possession of medical marijuana.”

HERE IS ONE OF MANY ARTICLES YOU CAN FIND ON THE INTERNET ABOUT THE NEW LAW.

2016 UPDATE:

The Arkansas Hemp and Marijuana Legalization Amendment may appear on a 2016 ballot in Arkansas as an initiated constitutional amendment. One may see the legislation by going to THIS LINK.

When I know more, I will try and keep this post current.

———————————————————–

I posted the entire article because I had problem with THIS LINK.

Richard Morton, head of the Arkansas TeaPot Party, is asking state lawmakers to legalize marijuana when the legislature convenes for its 2014 budget session.

Morton, of Shirley, is proposing the Willie Nelson Act, a law that would totally legalize marijuana in all forms. In addition, the law would release anyone from jail who is there on a nonviolent marijuana conviction. Since his law would allow the state to tax the marijuana, he believes it is an appropriate measure for lawmakers to consider during the budget session.

In previous legislative sessions, lawmakers have avoided introducing even limited marijuana measures, so it is unlikely that such a far-reaching measure would have any support among Arkansas lawmakers. And let’s not forget no matter what law a state legislature passes, marijuana is still 100% illegal to grow, sell, or possess under federal law.

More than half a dozen efforts are underway to make marijuana legal in Arkansas. This latest effort shows us where things are headed. Morton and the TeaPot Party are on the fast track. The “medical” marijuana folks are on a slower track, but they all end up at the same place—total legalization of marijuana. The states of Colorado and Washington legalized marijuana for “medical” purposes a few years ago. The drug got so out of control there that they finally threw in the towel and made it totally legal.

While Morton’s “Willie Nelson” law would be the most wide-open marijuana law in the country, at least his intentions are out in the open. Backers of other efforts to legalize marijuana in Arkansas seem to share Morton’s view, but veil their marijuana proposals behind a “medical” smoke screen of helping the sick and dying.

My comment:

HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE are articles that give reasons to, like Jerry and I, fight against recreational marijuana usage.

The third article states that: “This implies, but does not establish, that smoking marijuana may lead to some of the same results as smoking cigarettes. It is notable that several reports indicate an unexpectedly large proportion of marijuana users among cases of lung cancer and cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, and larynx. Thus, it appears that the use of marijuana as a medicine has the potential to further harm an already ill patient in the same way that taking up regular cigarette smoking would, particularly in light of the fact that those patients for whom marijuana is recommended are already poorly equipped to fight off these infections and diseases.”

The second source listed is from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). It also states that the results of medical marijuana are far from conclusive:

Is Marijuana Medicine?

Many have called for the legalization of marijuana to treat conditions including pain and nausea caused by HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other conditions, but clinical evidence has not shown that the therapeutic benefits of the marijuana plant outweigh its health risks. To be considered a legitimate medicine by the FDA, a substance must have well-defined and measurable ingredients that are consistent from one unit (such as a pill or injection) to the next. As the marijuana plant contains hundreds of chemical compounds that may have different effects and that vary from plant to plant, and because the plant is typically ingested via smoking, its use as a medicine is difficult to evaluate.”

The fourth source is from a former marijuana smoker. It states:

“As a recovering drug addict, I’ve known lots of other addicts in my life. What most of them have in common is that they started off with alcohol and cigarettes, then marijuana, before they moved on to harder drugs.”

These are all good sources, but the last one is from someone who has been there and done that.

From a spiritual standpoint, God’s Word says that our bodies are His temple. After reading these four articles and from personal experience of those I know who use(d) marijuana recreationally, I could never support the legalization of the drug.

“…Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?”

This news was shared on Facebook by Jerry Cox, President of The Arkansas Family Council. We are facebook friends and I have worked with Jerry on a moral issue in our state.

“Arkansas has just been named the third most pro-life state in the nation. Only Oklahoma and Louisiana rank higher. In addition, Arkansas has been named as one of five “All star” states that is doing an outstanding job of protecting women and children from abortion. Here is the story. Thanks to our friends in the Arkansas Legislature, Arkansas is one of the most pro-life places in the nation.”

My comment:

I am happy that my state is one of the leaders in the nation on protecting the lives of the unborn. We have so much work left to do. Please pray for all of the Pregnancy Crisis Centers that are helping young women make the right decisions every day.

I am very happy that my Mom did not abort me.  Jerry Cox is one of my heroes.  He is the leader of the Arkansas Family Council here in Arkansas.

HERE is a link to his blog where you can see an interview with Jase Robertson, one of the folks who is on the popular show named in the title of this post.

I don’t get many channels so I don’t watch the show.  Many have said that it’s very good.

As I type this, 28,398,000 babies have been aborted worldwide this year.

Today is my birthday.  I am happy to be here.  I will never stop fighting for the rights of the unborn.

May God bless all of you who are trying to stop this heinous crime that destroys human life.
