Everyone Knows what Abortion is

On the edge of the legalization of abortion-on-demand, a California Medicine journal article from September 1970 told the truth, and the whole truth. Keep in mind, this is a pro-abortion editorial I’m quoting from:

Since the old [Judeo-Christian] ethic [of the sanctity of life] has not yet been fully displaced [by the new ethic which places relative rather than absolute value on human lives] it has been necessary to separate the idea of abortion from the idea of killing, which continues to be socially abhorrent. The result has been a curious avoidance of the scientific fact, which everyone really knows, that human life begins at conception and is continuous whether intra- or extra-uterine until death.

The very considerable semantic gymnastics which are required to rationalize abortion as anything but taking a human life would be ludicrous if they were not often put forth under socially impeccable auspices. It is suggested that this schizophrenic sort of subterfuge is necessary because while a new ethic is being accepted the old one has not yet been rejected. [1]

With the above quote in mind, what kind of people do you think are in charge of this nation, who unashamedly approve of the homicide of millions of kids? Better question: what kind of people are we all, that we not only allow this to continue, but actually approve of it by our votes in the ballot box and in our silence?

Black Tie Event, Black President Praises Black Genocide

Last week President Barack Obama addressed the Planned Parenthood (AKA Minority Population Reduction Centers of AmeriKa) annual gala, in which he praised their work, and ended his speech with “God bless you.”

The American Spectator has a lucid article critiquing this Orwellian moment. Paul Kengor writes

It reminds me of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic nearest to me, which has windows with colorful drawings and balloons, the look of a cheerful daycare center. The difference, however, is that mom and child walk in, but the child never returns. That’s really what Planned Parenthood “is about.”

Everyone knows it. Barack Obama knows it.

(Do be sure to see page 2 of the AS article).

Just like the California Medicine article above noted. We all know what is happening in the abortion mills around our nation. We know what kind of people we are, and we are experts in covering it up with medicine, entertainment, and self-help jargon.

I’m reminded of some cutting words of Yahweh through the prophet Jeremiah. Although the context is ancient Judah, yet the prophecy is fresh and precise applied to the apostate Church in America. Read it all:

5:20 “Declare this in the house of Jacob
And proclaim it in Judah [AmeriKa], saying,
21 ‘Hear this now, O foolish people,
Without understanding,
Who have eyes and see not,
And who have ears and hear not:
22 Do you not fear Me?’ says Yahweh.
‘Will you not tremble at My presence,
Who have placed the sand as the bound of the sea,
By a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass beyond it?
And though its waves toss to and fro,
Yet they cannot prevail;
Though they roar, yet they cannot pass over it.
23 But this people has a defiant and rebellious heart;
They have revolted and departed.
24 They do not say in their heart,
“Let us now fear the Lord our God,
Who gives rain, both the former and the latter, in its season.
He reserves for us the appointed weeks of the harvest.”
25 Your iniquities have turned these things away,
And your sins have withheld good from you.

26 ‘For among My people are found wicked men;
They lie in wait as one who sets snares;
They set a trap;
They catch men.
27 As a cage is full of birds,
So their houses are full of deceit.
Therefore they have become great and grown rich.
28 They have grown fat, they are sleek;
Yes, they surpass the deeds of the wicked;
They do not plead the cause,
The cause of the fatherless;
Yet they prosper,
And the right of the needy they do not defend.
29 Shall I not punish them for these things?’ says Yahweh.
Shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?’

30 “An astonishing and horrible thing
Has been committed in the land:
31 The prophets prophesy falsely,
And the priests rule by their own power;
And My people love to have it so.
But what will you do in the end? (NKJV)

  1. Like a woman would birth a dog or a cat or a cell phone, right? Why do we allow this type of killing, yet go nuts when we hear about dogs, horses or cats being abused and God forbid, being killed? Because we are a selfish society that chooses pleasure and convenience over morality. I was there once. Thank God he is a forgiving Father.

    • Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I am grateful right along with you that our Father is so stunningly forgiving.

    So why aren’t we engaging in massive demonstrations at abortion clinics? There was a time we did that and some of us went to jail and prison for it.

    • I hope and pray that that time would come again. I’d like to be a part of an enormous movement of people who do so in love, ready to share the gospel.

So what are your thoughts?
