Rally for pre-born children held at Upper Room Church

| January 19, 2015

COSHOCTON – Concerned community members gathered at the Upper Room Church in the Civic Hall on Sunday, Jan. 18 at 2 p.m. to speak out for the victims of abortion. The program began with Pastor Stan Braxton of the Upper Room Church giving an invocation. Before the main presentation, Pastor Bill Dunfee of New Beginnings Ministries spoke a few words.

“It’s not just a blob,” said Dunfee. “It’s not just tissue. It has feeling. It’s a life.”

Seth Drayer, creator and director of Created Equal Ministries, gave a presentation about his ministry and why they believe life begins at the moment of conception. Created Equal Ministries is a group of approximately 50 students who travel the nation and speak out against abortion. They speak at high schools, colleges, and other organizations.

“We care so much for the born human, but not so much for the pre-born human,” said Drayer. “That might sound kind of funny, but it’s not because it’s a matter of life and death.”

Drayer argued that scientific evidence supports the theory of life beginning at the time of conception and conveyed through his program that a pre-born human should have the same rights as a born human. He said there were only four differences between a pre-born child and a child already born: size, level of maturity, environment, and development.

Drayer ended his program with a video of students from his Created Equal Ministries as they traveled the nation talking about abortion.

“The goal is to train them (the students), send them out, and let them start conversations with people about abortion,” said Drayer.

Sheldon Mencer ended the event with a song he wrote dedicated to victims of abortion entitled, “Only God Knows”.
