hillary-protecting-all-of-god-children-is-americas-callingSometimes you got to wonder about the ironies of the left-wing Huffington Post with their Religion section.  Coming from people who decry “Separation of Church and State” when it comes to those they disagree with both theologically and politically, they have no problem having their top news story in their religion section being “Protecting All Of God’s Children Is America’s Calling’” which essentially is the unblinking Huff Po writer gushing at Hillary speaking at a church service in North Carolina in an effort to win that state.

But that’s not the biggest irony.  The biggest irony comes from Hillary Clinton herself.

The Huff Po piece gives us a glimpse of her message:

Various Planned Parenthood Twitter account has retweeted an article defending Planned Parenthood titled “We Should Focus On Condemning Anti-Abortion Extremists, Not Planned Parenthood.”

One might wonder why I’m responding to a small piece from a college student at Duke University.  I do think the article is poor quality.  It wouldn’t pass for a college paper.  But then I’m responding to this because this is the type of quality Planned Parenthood wants to promote in defense of itself.  Since it has been deem good enough for Planned Parenthood to share with the public then it’s worth exposing the bad logic found in this piece.

Evil things happen here.  Not for the faint of heart or for those who are fearful of lovingly confronting sinners who are in need of Christ.  What a day!  After having a an hour long lengthy conversation at Panera Bread at Westfield North County Mall with Brick, a senior citizen who is a universalists and Ravi his friend, I was incited to make a presence at Planned Parenthood.  While there, I was able to plead with my first contact Francisco who came out from the doors of PP concerning the countless numbers of babies in their early gestational periods–made in God’s image,(feet and fingers forming already) that are murdered by the abortion pill (abortifacient, RU-486).  He was very attentive and seemed to take heed to what was said.  Pray that he calls me so that I can share more details of the Gospel.  I was also able to make pity and concise statements of God’s Word to the PP workers who were leaving in order to stir their conscience.

As I had a brief conversation with a professing believer who made her way to a store near PP, we had a edifying conversation concerning the ghastly industry of abortion.  As I look right over my shoulder I saw a patient leaving PP and making her way to the car.  I made a brief comment to her concerning the murder that takes place.  It seemed like there was a moment of conviction as she turned her head towards me and seemed to have a melancholy spirit.  She needs the Gospel of grace.  I also had an opportunity to speak to another lady along with her son whose name is Dante in the car and showed Dante and his mother pictures of the babies who are murdered in that center.  She seemed to be in tears as I spoke to her about these precious babies who are made in God’s image.  I wonder if PP show these pictures to their patients before killing them.  Being at PP gave me the opportunity to also share the Gospel with Z who is an Iraqi that works at Havana Cigars near PP.  He seemed opened.

Another blessed moment was when I approached a couple: Mohammed and Rachel.  I confronted them with the horrors of Planned Parenthood and encouraged to go to a pro-life/pregnancy crisis center.  Praise God, by God’s grace, they took down the information and took my Gospel tract and said that they would contact the other center.  They did not desire to go inside PP. That is the first time, I have experienced a couple expressing concern over PP.  The day ended with an engagement with a professing Christian who stated I had no right to judge people concerning what they do with their body.  I responded by saying, God has already judged as stated according to His Word.

Yes, brethren, there are professing believers who will oppose your work.  And often times, they do the most damage by being vessels of discouragement, but press on!  They are not the ones who will judge your work, it will be God.  Love Him and love people.

The truth of the matter is that PP is not a compassionate institution, but they destroy lives and are deceivers.  Many are unaware of the heinous services they provide.

Also, next time you go to PP, show people entering the doors of these butcher clinics, the pictures of the babies that are being murdered.  It may place a great weight of conviction upon their consciences.

Brothers and sisters, we are dealing with spiritual warfare.  Lives hang in the balance–please be the voice for the voiceless, the speechless, and the defenseless.  I am thankful for the insurmountable amount of resources we have concerning this pertinent topic, but let us engage face to face with sinners who are lost and in need of Christ. Theological discourse online can only go so far.  We must snatch people out from death and from the fire.  Look them in the face and compassionately tell them the doctrine of the image of God.  And ultimately remember that this war is not merely about abortion, it is mainly a hostile attack against the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  I leave with these words from a Christian abolitionist group:

We live in a world where human beings are routinely poisoned, burned, crushed, torn apart, discarded as trash, and destroyed in countless other ways simply because they are unwanted, inconvenient, and not yet born.

They are created in labs, incarcerated in icy chambers, and genetically modified to meet parental preferences.

They are dehumanized, experimented upon like rats, and bought and sold as scientific commodities.”

This satire was too good not to share.  Really put it in perspective with the whole Planned Parenthood fiasco.

The 3 minutes and 37 seconds is worth your time.

Previously I posted “Good Memes Refuting Defense of Planned Parenthood (8/1/15).”  With this current battle for the life of the unborn, speaking out is important in changing public opinion through the grace and mercy of God.  In light of that, I thought I post a second round of good memes.  Again I’ve given links to where the original could be found so that you can also further share them on Social Media.  It is time to speak out!

Are there others you want to share with us?

pp-undercover-video

 

Four days ago I posted my .  I want to revisit one of Cecile Richards’ quote again:

While predictably these videos do not show anything illegal on Planned Parenthood’s part, medical and scientific conversations can be upsetting to hear, and I immediately apologized for the tone that was used, which did not reflect the compassion that people have come to know and expect from Planned Parenthood.

My response to this quote has already been given in the previous post but here I want to make a further observation that according to Planned Parenthood’s own president these videos show Planned Parenthood’s “medical and scientific conversations.”  Cecile Richards herself admits this.

Now what exactly do we find in these medical conversations?

Cecile RichardsThe President of Planned Parenthood, the largest organization that performs abortion in the United States has come out swinging in an opinion piece on July 29th over at the Washington Post in defense of her organization after being exposed for selling aborted babies titled “These extremist videos are nothing short of an attack on women.”  Planned Parenthood various social media accounts have been promoting this piece and I think a response is in order.

Here’s my response to this piece.

1.) “Planned Parenthood has been a trusted nonprofit provider of women’s health care for nearly a century.”

Response: That near century history of Planned Parenthood isn’t as bright as she makes it out to be.  The founder Margaret Sanger was a racist eugenicist who have given talks to the Ku Klux Klan, and even in recent history whistle blowers have given an account that doesn’t paint the image of an organization with a century long trustworthy reputation.  Richards attempt to portray a sanitized PC airbrushed image of Planned Parenthood to try to cover up the heinous sin of the abortion it commits and how it treat the body parts afterwards.

unplanned abby johnson

Purchase: Amazon

This book is an emotional read.  Abby Johnson tells her story of her work with abortion provider Planned Parenthood and how she crossed the “fence” (a motif and a theme that runs throughout the book) to the Pro-life side.  It is a moving story and it is quite personal.  What is unusual about her story from others who abandon the pro-abortion side is that Abby Johnson was a former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic.  Readers will appreciate the first half of the book in which Abby describe how she came to work for Planned Parenthood and also the mindset of some of those who work for the abortion industry.  In the beginning of the book Abby makes it clear that she does not want to caricature or misrepresent any side and I think you get the sense in the book that she is genuine about that.  She is honest in her description of herself and some in the pro-abortion side are very sincere in wanting to help women.  What touched me reading this book is that it is a story that is about God’s work in her heart—and bringing her to see her sins.  I was also deeply moved reading the book with her account of interacting with pro-lifers outside her clinic who were gentle, respectful and winsome.  However being gentle and respectful does not mean one is not passionate or driven by conviction—it’s a case of both/and, not “and/or.”  She describe how convicting it was to see people passionately committed to pray outside the clinics and how uncomfortable it was for her to see pro-lifers who genuinely care for her—and the women who came to her clinic.  In some sense, her account validated to me the need for our pro-life effort to reach out to the workers also in a Christ like manner.  I don’t want to make out the book as all sweet—certainly there is the darker side of things that Abby Johnson also discussed in the book—the reality hitting her when she saw the ultrasound of an abortion for the very first time and being unable to deny what abortion really is anymore; then there is the reality that she had to face with those in leadership above her in Planned Parenthood who was pushing for more abortion and riskier abortion in order to meet the financial “bottom line.”  There is also the account of Planned Parenthood’s attempt to go after her legally and how frightening that was for Abby, especially with the lies and betrayal of those whom she thought was her friends and colleague.  This is the story of God’s work in freeing a woman from her own hidden sins of abortions—and how God forgave her.  I think this book is worth reading no matter where you land on this hot politic topic.  For those who are pro-abortion, I think you can see the perspective of someone who changed their minds and why.  For those who are already pro-life, you get a good perspective of someone who had an abortion and also involved with the industry.  For readers who are pro-life and have not been involved in the cause, this story should move you.  For those who are involved or who were involved with the prolife cause, this book will encourage you much.  I will be honest—I cried going this book because so many of the accounts she gave would be things those involved with the prolife cause see.  I totally recommend this book.

Baby in womb

Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that open the flood gates for abortions in America that has brought about millions of death was passed on January 22nd 1973.

This year it will be the forty first anniversary of this tragedy.

I’m praying that our country would repent and turn to Him before it’s too late in light of God’s impending wrath against sin.

This short video makes me realize that the Good News, that Jesus Christ the Son of God came to save sinners, is not beyond anybody if they repent and trust in Him while they are still breathing.  Even for abortionists and those who committed abortions or supports abortion.

Even for “Roe.”

While this video doesn’t go over much details of how she became a Christian, nevertheless it’s amazing to see God saving sinners.

coat hanger argument

On the one hand, a favorite argument for abortion goes something  like this:

History shows that women have always tried to terminate unwanted pregnancies. When safe medical procedures are banned by law, they have resorted to dangerous–sometimes deadly–“back-alley” abortions.

(socialistworker.org/2005-2/562/562_06_Abortion.shtml)

And:

Those who push for more restrictions on abortion access – really, those who push for abortion to be made illegal – seem unwilling to acknowledge the disastrous alternatives.

Women would be left injured, ill, sterile, or dead.

Then on the other hand there’s the horrific news about the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s horrific murder of babies and mothers.

Kermit Gosnell abortion

For those who can stomach it, you can read the 281 page Grand Jury report in PDF form HERE and it literally comes with this warning: “Warning: This Grand Jury Report is very explicit. Read at your own risk.”  One thing is clear: Readers will notice that Kermit Gosnell’s abortion business is the epitome of the back alley styled dangerous abortionists that advocates of legalized abortion like to invoke to defend their position.

Pro-abortionists talk about how legalized abortion means safer abortion.  Yet their response to regulations is not often favorable, since advocates commit the slippery slope fallacious argument that regulations would infringe on the rights to abortion when clinics are shut down for failing health and sanitary standards by officials.  But is abortion to be allowed and legalized…at any cost?  Would we legalized coat hanger back alley abortions?  Should regulators do their job?  And where’s the officials regulating Kermit Gosnell?

According to the Washington Post,

This nightmare facility had not been inspected in 17 years – other than by someone from the National Abortion Federation, whom he actually invited there. For whatever reason, Gosnell applied for NAF membership two days after the death of the 41-year-old Nepalese woman, Karnamaya Mongar. Even on a day when the place had been scrubbed and spiffed up for the visit, the NAF investigator found it disgusting and rejected Gosnell’s application for membership. But despite noting many outright illegalities, including a padlocked emergency exit in a part of the clinic where women were left alone overnight, the grand jury report notes that the NAF inspector did not report any of these violations to authorities.”

(http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/she-the-people/wp/2013/04/15/why-kermit-gosnell-hasnt-been-on-page-one/)

The irony of all of this is that in order to make sure women do not resort to dangerous “unsanitary,” back alley coat hanger style abortions, authorities and medical officials have to look the other way so as not to close down abortion clinics with the result that this unregulated medical environment foster the very thing the pro-abortionist say we need to prevent: dangerous unsanitary shady and murderous abortion centers.

History tells us that any time any industry or line of work that foster a culture of looking the other way, it only makes things worst:  Crooked cops now become the gangsters, soldiers now become the terrorists and the abortionists becomes…well, still the abortionists.  But now as one who operates in an unsanitary murderous house of horror.

Kermit Gosnell is the coat hanger argument against the rhetorics of current pro-abortion advocates, the abortion industry, their governmental regulators looking the other way, our Federal government and the nation as a whole.

I pray the Lord has mercy, for our nation as a whole to repent, turn to Jesus as Lord and Saviorf, and end this abortion holocaust.

Live Action Lila Rose

When I was in college, people started talking about this incoming freshman that was going to change the pro-life club on campus.  Little did I know that semester that Lila Rose would go on that year to be threatened by Planned Parenthood with a lawsuit (I don’t think it happened) and rise to be an important figure in the pro-life movement by challenging Planned Parenthood.

Today her organization, Live Action, has released another undercover video.

May the Lord wake up our national conscience to this terrible wickedness.

abortion sproul

I appreciated Sproul weighing in on this topic. Those who have read other works on pro-life works (see my review of Scott Klusendorf’s work) will not find anything dramatically new here. Yet it’s good to read and review the pro-life’s argument. One thing that stood out as unique in this book was actually George Grant’s preface. Grant summarized the current landscape in our society, political sphere and culture as the result of the abortion debate since Roe vs. Wade. This fascinating essay filled with footnotes by Grant puts into perspective for the Christian the extent of how much the abortion controversy has seeped into so many spheres of our lives today. The book is worth reading for the preface alone. Getting into Sproul’s actual work I do appreciate how the author does deal with various objections given against the prolife position. I was reminded that more women have been known to have been killed by abortion after Roe vs. Wade than before it which makes the back alley abortion argument for legalizing abortion kind of ironic. Concerning the argument that the fetus is part of the woman’s body, Sproul bring modern study of cells to bear, noting that babies have a different genetic fingerprint than the mother. The more interesting part of the book is the appendix that ended up being a rather lengthy testimony of a medical expert on the status of the embryo. Perhaps a little too lengthy. Sproul could have had his arguments tighter and I say this because I’ve seen other works that have made it air tight in their presentation. For those who might want to read an introductory work or to remind and refresh their prolife apologetics I can recommend this work.
