Three things you can do to fight abortion right now.

Three things you can do to fight abortion right now.

Did you know that since Roe v. Wade, over 57,000,000 unborn children have been legally murdered? Over 150,000 of those abortions have taken place this year. Here is an incredibly sobering comicthat puts that number in perspective (although it is slightly dated, being a few weeks old). I have spilled a lot of digital ink in debating abortion and I sometimes feel like I’m banging my head against a…

@PerryNoble and Planned Parenthood. #Newspring #PerryNoble

Perry Noble has recently published a particularly troubling blog postover on his site in which he makes the audacious claim that Planned Parenthood is “acting more Christlike” than a certain group of Christians — particularly those boycotting Girl Scout…

Serious question:

If you consider yourself pro-choice, would you consider limiting abortion to cases of rape and incest only? I ask because I hear that given as a reason to keep abortion legal all the time. And while I disagree with the conclusions drawn — namely that terrible circumstances surrounding conception means that you are less valuable than other human beings — I understand the emotive appeal of keeping abortion legal for those reasons. Hypothetically, let’s say a good system was in place to do this: Would you join us in stopping the abortion-on-demand machine and limiting the reasons for which a woman may have an abortion?

"Can wicked rulers be allied with you,
those who frame injustice by statute?
They band together against the life of the righteous
and condemn innocent blood."

Psalm 94:20-21.

One day Christ will return and set it all aright again. One great and terrible day. Lord have mercy.

"Don’t think about the freckles he, or she,
Might have, or how much hair, how big a grin,
Or whether swimming would come naturally,
Or whether–it?–might play the violin.

Don’t think of prom, don’t think of puppy love
Or calculus, or snow, or spring in bloom,
Or anything that might remind you of
The future now contained within a womb.

Don’t feel anxiety, don’t feel regret,
Don’t fret about some otherworldly guilt.
Don’t feel the bond of parenthood, don’t let
Insane outmoded Don Quixotes tilt

At private windmills–don’t spill any ink
Examining yourself. Don’t feel. Don’t think."

Now this? I am ok with this going viral. Carry on.

This needs to be viral. This is a fantastic quote. A child exists, from the moment of conception; a real living breathing child that deserves life.

Mom Screams for Clinic to Call 911 When Baby Born Alive After Abortion


The clinic worker took one look at the moving baby and told the woman (Angele) that she would get her supervisor. But the minutes ticked by, and no one came. It became clear to Angele that the worker was not going to summon help. She grabbed her phone and quickly dialed her friend, pleading with her to call 911 and send paramedics to save her baby. Listen to the call here.

Angele continued to be left alone with her son, who she said reacted to her voice. All she could do was try and comfort him:

“I stayed beside Rowan talking to him, telling him how strong he was being and how proud I was of him. I told him God must really want us to be together for him to make it through everything he had just been through and that Mommy was so sorry but so happy to have a chance to love him. I told him he was a strong little miracle and that I couldn’t wait for him to meet his brother and sister. I just kept touching him, trying to warm him with my hands and talking to him so he would not feel any more afraid than he already must.”

Finally, the baby stopped moving as Angele waited for help.

She cradled the dead baby and began to pray, filled with remorse for choosing to undergo the abortion. A staff member came and demanded that she give her the baby. Angele refused, and continued to hold on to Rowan. The clinic workers left her alone briefly but returned to pressure her to give up the body of the child.

My heart breaks for this woman, and for all women who buy the lie that abortion will solve your problem.

I had a talk with an abortion advocate today.

I think it was a good way to start my 21st year on earth. She was campaigning for Elizabeth Colbert-Busch and I asked what Mrs. Colbert-Busch’s stance on abortion was.

"Elizabeth believes that abortion is a woman’s personal private choice." Well this is why I cannot possibly stand beside Elizabeth. I categorically deny that a woman has the right to choose to end the life of her child.

"Well, we appreciate your opinion, but you cannot force it on others." Ma’am, I’m not speaking in the realm of opinions. I am saying that it is actually and truly wrong for anyone to end the life of their child by abortion. This is a moral claim more akin to the statement ‘insulin treats diabetes’ than it is to ‘vanilla is the best flavor of ice-cream.’ You’re the one forcing abortions on the 3,000 children aborted every year, and violating their right to live.

"No, sir, you’re stating an opinion, and no one’s opinion is better than anyone else’s." Of course they are, otherwise you wouldn’t disagree with me. Are all opinions equally valid and true? "Of course!" Then you agree with me that it’s wrong to kill children, because my opinion, as you call it, is equally valid and as true as your opinion.

"Well sir, a child isn’t a child until it’s been born." What’s the difference? A few inches travel? "It’s no longer dependent on the mother." It’s still largely dependent on the mother! "It has the breath of God in its lungs." God says that He knit us together in our mother’s womb and that He knew us before we were born.

"Sir, read the Hebrew Bible." Ma’am, I just quoted the Hebrew Bible to you. Ha-Shem makes it clear that life begins before the moment of birth. "Sir, read the Hebrew Bible."

At this point she walked away rapidly. I kid you not. She just. walked. away. Power-walked, in fact.

I did not edit or rephrase this: As best as I remember this is true to our conversation. It was telling, to say the least. 

Here are a few thoughts about this encounter that I hope help you next time you talk to someone with these or similar convictions:

  • Remember to always use accurate vocabulary. By referring to the unborn as a child (what it is) rather than a fetus (its current developmental stage) we trade sterilized language for words that make our point clear: At stake is a human life and we are not willing to let that go so flippantly. 
  • Stay on their level. Obviously I could have just turned to scripture right from the start, but there is no way of knowing that she accepts scripture as authoritative. By waiting until she brought it up, I engaged her where she was. 
  • Be polite, yet persistent. Again, with human lives being lost every day to this horror, let us be dogged in the opportunities that are afforded us. I could have simply said “agree to disagree” and left it at that. Hopefully she’ll remember the guy who stood next to her and patiently engaged her, disagreeing without being disagreeable.
  • One thing I wish I had done: Chuckle a bit. Disarm them by asking something like “why would you believe a silly thing like that?” when they say a fetus isn’t a child, or a woman has an open-ended right to choose. This is not derisive laughter at someone, it’s bemused laughter about a silly idea. A jovial nature is impressively helpful when discussing something so intense as abortion, so the laughter helps to set the tone.

I hope that this exchange is enlightening and helpful for you. It was certainly an interesting experience first-hand. May God use us all to love and serve even our tiniest of neighbors.
