The term “never again” is used to remind us of the horrors of the Nazi holocaust. The Nazi regime revealed the worst of humanity and we should be ever vigilant against such people coming to power again. I remember my father telling me about my grandfather’s witness to this during the end of WWII. General Eisenhower wanted as many of the Allied troops as possible to visit the Nazi concentration camps; he wanted our soldiers to remember and pass along the memory to posterity. He knew if there were not enough witnesses to such horrors, many would choose not to believe. My grandfather didn’t say much about the experience, but my father made it clear that he never forgot.
Without experiencing such horrors for ourselves, it is often hard for many of us to imagine the full extent of the brutality of the Nazis and the capacity of evil in all of us. Many of the people of that time, including the Jews, chose not to believe what was happening. Elie Wiesel wrote of his own experiences in the concentration camps in his novel Night. His native country of Romania was spared the first four years of the war. For several years, the Romanian Jews were warned about what was happening elsewhere, but when the Germans finally came they didn’t believe that things were as bad as they had heard. Nevertheless, the Germans were no kinder to them than they were to anyone else; the Romanian Jews went like sheep to the slaughter, not believing the Germans were capable of such evil.
There have been more holocausts since then: Lenin and Stalin in the Soviet Union, China under Mao and China today, Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, Sadaam Hussein in Iraq, Kim Jung-Un in North Korea, among others. History continues to repeat itself because human nature has not changed. There has been recognition that these regimes are evil and actions should be taken to end their reigns of terror, but unfortunately, many have remained apathetic and have chosen to ignore these terrible regimes because it didn’t impact their own lives. For instance, we see NBA players aligning with Communist China even while they round up Muslims in concentration camps in the western provinces. A few months back, I wrote about David Horowitz’s disillusionment with anti-war Americans who passionately defended Viet Namese lives during the Viet Nam war but chose ignore the subsequent holocaust in Southeast Asia after that war: https://seek-the-truth.com/2021/05/28/on-american-fascism/
In America and around the world, there is yet another holocaust in our midst. But many don’t see it as a holocaust and others don’t care enough to do anything about it. This holocaust I think is worse than even the others because not only do so many refuse to condemn it but because so many want to defend it as a public good, a right, a choice. Today, our own federal government, our supposed protector of the public good and our COVID security, along with media, celebrities, and public figures are gearing up to do battle in favor of the latest threat to end that holocaust. I am talking about, of course, the holocaust that is called abortion. The Nazis killed 6 million in their concentration camps; since 1973, Americans have aborted ten times more than that. How can this be good for our society? How can this be one of our cherished rights?
Among those who support abortion there is no shame and no guilt. They clearly do not see abortion as murder, much less a holocaust, and people like me who would prick their consciences are, in fact, the problem. We are self-righteous, hypocritical, callous, non-empathetic, and not true to our Judeo-Christian values according to them. But let’s look at the problem dispassionately first. Let’s just look at the cold, hard facts and then later compare it to the rhetoric.
First, let’s ask: who is having abortions? In 1992, Bill Clinton when he was a presidential candidate, famously said abortions: “should be safe, legal, and, rare”. https://lifedynamics.com/what-is-abortion/abortion-as-birth-control/. It was a political slogan meant to find some middle ground and to appeal to both the pro-life and pro-choice crowd. I think it was disingenuous then, but there is nothing even approximating a middle ground today. The data tells us abortions today are anything but rare (its safety is often questionable as well; more on that below) . When we think of abortion, we often think of young teenage girls who get themselves into trouble and are not capable of raising a child on their own. There are many in this category, but, in fact, most who have abortions know the consequences; pregnancy is simply an inconvenience and abortion is a convenience, just something necessary to clean up our unintended messes.
The data shows that, (a) about 35% of all American women of child-bearing age will have had at least one abortion by age 45 (b) approximately half of all abortions are repeat abortions, (c) repeat abortions are on the rise, and (d) only a tiny fraction of abortions are done for the so-called “hard cases” such as rape, incest, life-of-the-mother, or fetal anomalies.
source: abortion as birth control
FACT: One of the most surprising facts about abortion is that almost 60% of women obtaining an abortion have already given birth to one or more children! Only 40.3% abort their first child.
source: abortion demographics
In addition, a significant percentage, almost 15% of abortions are among married couples. That’s more than 150,000 per year for American couples that should have the means, the resources, and the know-how to raise a child.
Abortions are endemic, common among all of our demographics, not limited to one group of people or another.
A Difficult Choice
These numbers should make it clear all sorts of women, not just those who you might expect, are having abortions. It is comforting to these women to know that they can fall back on this ultimate form of birth control. They don’t need to take responsibility for their sexual behavior because there is a “get out of jail free” card if all other measures fail. Furthermore, it is comforting that much of society supports their choices, telling them it is a normal and an acceptable choice, so the guilt and shame from this choice is removed. For these reasons, I don’t want to condemn or stand in judgment of any woman who has an abortion. Although, I think they should ask themselves some difficult questions and examine their own consciences. When we do not hold ourselves to a higher moral code, one beyond ourselves, we can rationalize anything we want to do. In the end though, I hold our society as a whole for allowing such views to take hold and not be more strongly challenged.
Many celebrities have spoken out about their own abortions and it is interesting to hear how they justify this action and how they talk about this so-called right. Many see it as a choice between career and family. A child would alter the course of their professional career and either choice is equally good in their view. Some even go on to have families later when it is a more convenient time in their career. These women are product of our era; our society has placed a lot of emphasis on female empowerment and has encouraged women to seek career ahead of family. Our culture has also told women: you can have it all. You can have the total family experience while pursuing all of your career goals, and you needn’t sacrifice one for the other. This is really not true. Either family or career will suffer at the expense of the other. There will always come a time when you have to make a sacrifice to one or the other. Many of the celebrities I quote below tacitly admit this: they openly tell you they chose to have an abortion because it was an inopportune time and it would have stunted their careers. Is that not a sacrifice to family in pursuit of your career? A child is not a mulligan. You can’t get that back, no matter the choices made later in life.
Some of the celebrities who have had abortions say it is a difficult choice, but they don’t generally explain why it is a difficult choice. For example, Alyssa Milano said the following:
“I knew at that time, I was not equipped to be a mother, and so I chose to have an abortion,” said Milano. “I chose. It was my choice. And it was absolutely the right choice for me.”
“It was not an easy choice,” she continued. “It was not something I wanted, but it was something that I needed, like most health care is.”
Part of the difficulty of the choice she faced is surely the tug between a burgeoning career and the desire for family, but I think there is more left unsaid. She was not making a choice between two equally good things. I wonder why these celebrities are not pressed more on this question: why isn’t it an easy choice? If you don’t see the fetus as a separate living being, but rather simply as an appendage of the mother, as a clump of cells which is not yet another person, why is this choice considered difficult? If I need a medical procedure to remove my appendix which is causing me pain but is of absolutely no benefit to me, then my choice is obvious and very easy. Like Milano says, it is just health care. I wonder if folks like Milano subconsciously realize there is a bit more to this particular procedure than they would like to admit? An abortion is clearly not as simple as removing a dysfunctional appendix. There is something much more significant that is being lost, being sacrificed. Why else would anyone agonize over the decision?
Nicky Minaj, another Hollywood celebrity, while still pro-choice, admits not only that her abortion was a difficult choice, but that the decision still haunts her today:
“It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through,” she said of having an abortion. “[It’s] haunted me all my life. It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child.”
Again, if we want to get at root of the issue, we have to ask why is she haunted by this choice? What is it that bothers her about this decision? Can she and others like her finally admit that another’s life was taken and that’s the thing that haunts her?
Minaj is getting closer to the heart of the matter, but still stops short of acknowledging that a life is being cut short. As a Christian, I want to emphasize again we do not want to judge the individual so much as we want to judge our society for condoning this human sacrifice. There is redemption for those who have had abortions. It is redemption, not condemnation, that we seek for these women. On the other hand, Jesus said those who lead others into sin will have a far harsher judgment than those who are led into it. Our society, even more than the women who have willingly aborted their children, will be judged for allowing this awful holocaust.
More Problematic Statements
Bill Clinton said abortions should be rare but actress Lena Dunham thinks they should be celebrated. She would like to see more of them, so much so that she wished she had had an opportunity for one herself. It seems that she sees abortion as a cause for pushing back against the oppressive male patriarchy; those who have had abortions are brave and heroic and perhaps there ought to be statues built to them.
Listen what another pro-choice activist is saying about abortion today: “It saves lives. It is actually a blessing. ”
This is a tactic so common today. Pretend that which is obviously not true must in fact be a new reality.
When we look back on ancient civilizations, the Mayans, for example, that engaged in child sacrifice and we are disgusted by the thought; we believe we have progressed far beyond this kind of primitive thinking, but have we really? Are we in our enlightened modern world not sacrificing more children at the altar of feminism and female empowerment, more even than those primitive cultures sacrificed? How is it that we cannot clearly see the excesses and flaws of our own behavior as well as we can see the failings of others? Jesus told us to remove the beam from our own eye so we can see more clearly to remove the splinter from our neighbor’s eye. The beam in the eye of our culture is abortion. It is the overwhelming sin of our time, but many continue to deny it is a problem at all, just as the Mayans believed child sacrifice to the gods necessary for their own civilization’s future.
It is impossible for me to withhold judgment about this next clip of the actress Busy Phillips. What she says in a minute-and-a-half is pure evil. I am not saying she herself is evil. I am not saying she needs to be condemned. I am not even saying I am a better person than she, but she has partaken in evil and that should not be denied. She makes it clear that it was absolutely necessary for a child to die so that she could enjoy the comforts that she has today. She is angry at those who would have denied her this right, those who might have prevented her from living this life she now enjoys. This woman needs our prayers so that she can repent, and so she can see how the love of money has become the root of the evil she has taken part of:
“There I was sitting in Los Angeles in my beautiful office of my own late-night talk show. Soon I would be driving my hybrid to my beautiful f**king home to kiss my beautiful and healthy children and my husband, who had taken the year off to parent so I could focus on my career, and I have all of this! All of it! Because, because, because I was allowed bodily autonomy at 15,” she screamed.
She may be correct that if her child had lived, she might not have all that she has today. She might not have the fame and the wealth or all the rest, but are those things so important that a life must be cut short in order for her to have those things? Jesus also told us if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. Abortion is leading so many among us into sin and we need to pluck it out.
Another actress Joan Collins said essentially the same thing a few years earlier, albeit in a less expressive manner, but still with the same sentiment:
“It would have been absolute career death for me to have done that … it would have been unthinkable to have a child,” she told Piers Morgan in a 2010 interview.
Why is the mother’s life so important and the child’s not important at all? I don’t dismiss the importance of the mother’s life, but how can one so callously dismiss the life of a child? How many families in America cannot have children? How many couples would jump at the opportunity to adopt a child who couldn’t be raised by a single mother (or any other mother for that matter)? My wife and I suffered through three miscarriages. We wanted more children but were denied; we would have loved the opportunity for another.
Tennis star, Billie Jean King similarly said the following:
“The reason I had an abortion is because I was not in a good place,” she explained during an interview with Makers. “I was just finding out about my sexuality. I was trying to figure my life out. I was trying to get the tour started. I just did not want to bring a baby into the world.”
You’ve been entrusted with the life of another. Do you have the right to deny that life because you just didn’t want to bring a baby into the world? And what does figuring out your own sexuality have to do with ending the life of another? That seems a rather frivolous reason to end a life.
Another celebrity, Jameela Jamil said the following:
“This anti-abortion law in Georgia is so upsetting, inhumane, and blatantly demonstrative of a hatred of women, a disregard for our rights, bodies, mental health, and essentially a punishment for rape victims, forcing to carry the baby of their rapist,”
I have to ask Jameela what is more inhumane and hateful: ending the life of a child before it is even begun or expecting a woman to bring to term the life that she has been entrusted with? Why does Jameela and so many others look only at the lives of the women impacted? Certainly, a woman who is raped is clearly a victim, but why should we create even more victims by punishing a child as well?
What if you could somehow speak to this unborn child and explain to it why its life should be ended. What words would you use to tell that it must be punished and have its life snuffed out because his or her father is a scumbag? Do we actually believe in punishing a child for the sins of its parents? That child certainly would have disadvantages from the outset of its life, but many people come from rough beginnings only to succeed in life. How could you look this child in the eye of this unborn child (or perhaps just look at ultrasound in your doctor’s office) and say you’ve determined that he or she will not be given an opportunity to pull themselves up from their bootstraps and make its way in the world? You, with all your enlightened modern sensibilities, have determined this child should not be given a chance for success or happiness or love. Where is the love and empathy in that decision? Where is the humanity?
Then there’s Hannah Gadsby who said this:
“Had I been in that state, under these laws, under these politics at that time in my life, I would be dead. It’s as simple as that,” Gadsby continued. “I was assaulted, raped, and very, very vulnerable. How was I going to raise a child? I would have ended up dead. How is that pro-life? You can’t say women can’t have abortions and then provide absolutely no infrastructure to help them.”
Having a baby is not a death sentence. On the other hand, aborting a child is certainly a death sentence. Why should we care only about the mother and ignore the child’s pain and suffering? Give up your child if you don’t want it, but for God’s sake give your child a chance to live.
There are plenty of more celebrities who have spoken out. In all, twenty-nine celebrities provided People magazine testimony on their abortions. Many of them say similar things: I wasn’t ready; it wasn’t a good time; my career would have suffered. Some used it as an opportunity to preach about trans issues or about the failings of those who would restrict their right to choose. None talked about the life ended or the opportunity lost. Only two of the twenty-nine acknowledged any regret at all. Is the life of a child so meaningless? This is why so many have called ours a culture of death. This is why I call it a holocaust.
I want to acknowledge one woman who went much further than the rest. Sharon Osbourne not only talks about the regret she felt, but also warns about the long term consequences, something that almost nobody in the public eye is willing to admit. She is certainly not the only woman to have experienced these consequences and regret, but she is one of the few to publicly say so:
“I had an abortion at 17 and it was the worst thing I ever did. It was the first time I’d had sex, and that was rotten. I’d always thought it was going to be all violins, and it was just awful,” she told the Daily Mail in a 2004 interview.
Osbourne told her mother after realizing two months in that she was pregnant and without hesitation, her mother responded, “You have to get rid of it.”
“She told me where the clinic was, then virtually pushed me off. She was so angry. She said I’d got myself in this mess, now she had to get me out,” Osbourne continued.
“But she didn’t come. I went alone. I was terrified. It was full of other young girls, and we were all terrified and looking at each other and nobody was saying a bloody word. I howled my way through it, and it was horrible,” she added.
“I would never recommend it to anyone because it comes back to haunt you. When I tried to have children, I lost three – I think it was because something had happened to my cervix during the abortion. After three miscarriages, they had to put a stitch in it.”
She concluded her story by saying, “In life, whatever it is, you pay somewhere down the line. You have to be accountable.”
Many applaud the women who proudly proclaimed their abortions as brave and heroic for speaking out, but Osbourne is the only one of these 29 women who has done something brave. The rest of them are following the standard script while Osbourne is speaking heterodoxy that is not popular among her Hollywood peers. The others want to see themselves as victims or even romanticize the experience in order to paint themselves as better than the rest of us who they see as hypocrites standing in judgment. It is not likely she is invited to any of their trendy Hollywood parties after such a testimony, but it is one of the few statements that rings true. Osbourne is only one of the 29 who displays any introspection or critical thought in discussing the matter.
The unborn child is among the most vulnerable in our society. That child cannot speak for itself, cannot defend itself in any way, and the one who should be that child’s protector is the very one who abandons that child in its time of need. So be it if this sounds judgmental. There is no way to completely soften the blow and my conscience demands that it be said.
Others who spoke up about similar injustice in the past were vilified for taking a stand, so I feel in good company. Bartlome de las casas was born in Spain in 1484. After being one of the first to travel to the new world, he and a few of his Dominican brothers spoke out against the inhumane treatment of the West Indies natives. He was shunned, exiled, ignored, and vilified for daring to challenge the encomienda system that made so many of his countrymen rich and prestigious. Those Spaniards rationalized that the Indians were uncivilized, engaged in barbarities themselves, and were not deserving of the dignity afforded civilized Europeans. The Indians were treated as less than human just as African slaves were dehumanized a century later and the Jews in the concentration camps were dehumanized less than a century long ago. I cannot help but see so many parallels in the manner in which the Indians were treated and spoken of, the manner in which African slaves were treated and spoken of, the manner in which the Jews were treated by the Nazis, and the manner in which the unborn are treated today. I cannot also help but see the manner in which de las Casas was dismissed and criticized and the manner in which those of us who speak out about abortion are treated today. We can look back on history and clearly see the atrocities of the past, but we find it more difficult to see the atrocities of today, especially if we are complicit in them. One thing which has not changed across all the years is human nature; we are all capable of great evil.
The author of the following article does some rationalizing as well. She sees no harm in abortion. She also tries to sound open minded and find some middle ground, but it doesn’t work. Compromise is sometimes a good thing, but there should be no compromising on the value of life and the horrible nature of abortion.
Choosing not to bring a child into your life, at any time of your life, does not make you less of a woman. There are women who find themselves pregnant at an older age and feel that they cannot carry a child at that time of their life. Whether this decision is made because of health concerns, or simply because the pregnancy is unplanned, choosing abortion is still perfectly okay.
Choosing abortion is okay. Not choosing abortion is okay.
Believing abortion is wrong is okay. Believing abortion is a woman’s right is okay.
Shaming a woman for choosing, or not choosing, abortion is not okay.
Shaming a person for their beliefs regarding abortion is not okay.
A woman’s reason for abortion is her own business, not yours.
Next time you find yourself in a discussion about abortion, I hope you will remember to consider the feelings of the person sitting opposite you. We all have personal reasons for the beliefs we hold on this topic and we should all be considerate of others’ beliefs. Next time you find yourself judging a person for their opinions on abortion, remember that whatever a person believes, it is okay.
For the author, abortion is just another choice, one choice among many. She appears to be high minded by allowing others their opposing views, but as soon as we point out that not all choices are good, we run afoul of her. She tells us if we don’t criticize her views, she won’t criticize ours, but the choice she advocates is to take the life of another. How can we possibly look the other way? What she is advocating is the true danger of our time: moral relativism. Our culture would like to eliminate all forms of judgment. Those who judge, people like me, for example, who offer an opinion on right and wrong, we are the problem. This is why when I say I don’t condone gay marriage or that homosexuality is a sin or that or that transgenders are generally deluding themselves, I am the bad guy. All I am saying is that I don’t agree that their behavior is good, yet that alone is too much for them to accept. My refusal to affirm their behavior translates into: I am discriminating against gays and transgenders; I hate and fear them; I am the intolerant one.
They will even attack me and others for not being true to our Christian faith. My liberal friend whom I have debated on occasion would say I am imposing my morality. He might even point out that Jesus clearly said in the sermon on the mount to “Judge not”. Why am I judging another? Who am I to judge? But I have to ask in turn: how can I say taking another’s life is okay? Lila Rose, head of the Pro Life organization Live Action said “Abortion is violence” and was labeled a domestic terrorist for that true statement: http://www.christianitydaily.com/articles/10506/20210113/pro-life-leader-lila-rose-called-a-terrorist-for-saying-abortion-is-violence.htm. I am sure de las Casas would receive the same treatment were he alive today.
Jesus admonition to judge not is among the most understood of all passages in the Bible. We judge others all the time. We are called to judge our peers when they are on trial. We judge (and correct) our children when they behave badly or when they make mistakes; in fact, to withhold that judgment would be detrimental to their development. We call for interventions when our loved ones or friends can no longer control their destructive behavior (drug abuse, domestic abuse, infidelity, etc.); to sit idly by while they destroy their lives would be wrong. Teachers judge their students performance. Managers judge their employees work. Voters judge their leaders. We offer advice to others because we care about and we think we can help them do better and learn from our experience. We criticize our bosses, our enemies, our favorite sports teams, our political opponents, and practically everyone else because we judge that we know better them (we are not always correct, but it is still a common and accepted form of judgment). In short, we judge all the time because we have to, because we are compelled to.
Is Jesus telling us not to do judge at all, to allow everyone to be their own judge, to never criticize, offer advice, or evaluate each other? No. He understands that as humans we judge each other’s actions. In contrast, God judges our hearts. God knows our motivations, but we shouldn’t presume to know others thoughts and motivations. I can say aborting a child is wrong because it is an action that I can clearly see, but I cannot judge the woman who aborts the child because I don’t know what motivates her and I don’t know what is in her heart. I cannot condemn her or shun from polite society. I don’t want to excommunicate her. I give her the benefit of the doubt because I do not know all. God knows all and he will judge her heart. I can walk with her on the journey and offer my perspective (give tough love, perhaps), but the one thing I cannot do is look the other way and affirm this action. She may not care what I think, but still I will not change my views to be accepted and assure her she did nothing wrong.
The ultimate judgment, the one clearly reserved for God alone, is the decision of who lives or dies. A child who is aborted receives the ultimate judgement, a judgment we have no right to impose. I think is what Jesus means when He says “Judge not” and this is why I oppose any form of ultimate judgment: abortion, capital punishment, euthanasia. All assume we can determine who should live and who should die. All assume the individual deserves no more chances. I don’t know the mind of God. I don’t know how many more chances He wants them to have. I shouldn’t make that choice for anyone else (save for self-defense or in defense of another). But I do believe God is not happy with a million American children being aborted annually. God will judge us for that sin. I fear that America will be judged as harshly as Sodom and Gomorrah for that sin.
I try hard not to offer any judgment of the individual, just their actions. Yet I find it ironic that the pro-choice folks often judge our pro-life motivations while ignoring our actual arguments. Abortion is an issue that divides Americans as much as any other. Any limitations on abortions are met with vigorous protest. I hear what our politicians and vocal celebrities say about our views: we don’t care about women or women’s rights or we want them barefoot and pregnant where they have always belonged. They will say anything to discredit us and our motivations while never acknowledging the real concern that a life of a child is at stake.
Horrors of Abortion
Those who support abortion think of it as a sterile, routine medical procedure, one that is done thousands of times every day, just like getting your appendix removed. Perhaps they may even acknowledge it’s not pretty, but still say it is necessary and we just can’t do without it. I have always believed if people could see the ugly side of abortion, they would not be so quick to support it. Have you ever heard of the names Abby Johnson, Kermit Gosnell, or David Daleiden? If not, it may be because their stories have been suppressed. You should know their stories. I don’t see how they cannot change your heart.
- Two years ago a movie, Unplanned was made about Abby Johnson; Abby was a director at Planned Parenthood who had a conversion and is now staunchly pro-life. The movie is the story of her life and conversion; it is extremely powerful and could have been a game changer. The MPAA made sure it was rated R (there is no violence in this movie) to suppress its distribution. Hollywood and the media wouldn’t talk about it or acknowledge it, except to say it had things wrong. It didn’t get any awards or even nominations despite being a very compelling movie. Abby herself had two abortions; these are depicted in the movie. They are anything but sterile; the medical care she received was minimal and not what I expected at all. I compare the care Abby received with the care my wife received during the birth of our children; the two are as far apart as could be. Here is a free copy of the movie. Watch it tonight if you can. Watch it tomorrow if too busy today. Just watch it, please: https://archive.org/details/Unplanned
- The story of Kermit Gosnell could have been another game changer; he was an abortion doctor who is now in jail. His abortion horror clinic went on for more than 20 years; the state of Pennsylvania ignored violation after violation because they didn’t want his story to come out (which it eventually did). Two women had to die from neglect and incompetence before Dr. Gosnell was finally exposed. The conditions at his practice were appalling. The number of violations of the law were too numerous to count while the number of people who knew the truth and looked the other way was equally appalling. The book was one of the most impactful I have ever read. Read it and you will know the awful ugly truth about abortion. Many I am sure would rather not know and continue to live in ignorance. There is a movie as well, Gosnell, The trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer. It is aptly named. Read this summary from a liberal, former pro-choice journalist: https://www.liveaction.org/news/kirsten-powers-reflects-on-her-blockbuster-gosnell-column-and-the-complicity-of-the-pro-abortion-media/ https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2013/04/10/philadelphia-abortion-clinic-horror-column/2072577/
- David Daleiden went undercover and filmed Planned Parenthood doctors blithely discussing the sale of aborted baby parts. I thought people would finally wake up when they saw this. The evil was so obvious and so clear. I was horrified by the videos when they came out, but now they are hard to find because of a concerted effort to censor these videos. https://rumble.com/vfj7eh-judge-orders-undercover-planned-parenthood-recordings-permanently-sealed-tu.html. The State of California went to court to stop him from releasing his story. Kamala Harris, the California Attorney General at the time, went after Daleiden instead of Planned Parenthood: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/david-daleiden-kamala-harris-contempt-first-amendment. He was forced to pay Planned Parenthood for damages to their reputation. Planned Parenthood broke the law, but they were victims you see. https://rumble.com/vk2b93-horrific-undercover-video-of-center-for-medical-progress-w-abortionist-and-.html; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOVte9k_DMs;
What do you know about the views on abortion of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam or Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger:
- Virginia Governor Ralph Northam in the following interview actually contemplated infanticide because abortion on demand is not enough for some. Northam said we should consider having abortion right up to 40 weeks and if there is a botched abortion at 40 weeks, the mom and the doctor should “keep the baby comfortable and decide what to do”. In other words, decide whether the baby lives or dies. I am not making this up! Hear this shocking admission from Northam himself: https://www.commentarymagazine.com/abe-greenwald/ralph-northam-infant-would-be-kept-comfortable/. This is the same man who had a picture of a person in a KKK outfit and another in blackface in his college yearbook page, but he was, of course, forgiven this sin because he is a Democrat. Listen again to his words and ask yourself why we haven’t done more to stop this holocaust? The pro-choice crowd wants abortion right up to the day of birth; they know no bounds.
- Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood and role model for Hillary Clinton, was a eugenicist and a racist who wanted to control the black population who she considered the inferior race. If people knew the truth about Margaret Sanger, Clinton’s career would have been over long ago for hitching her wagon to Sanger. Sanger lived long enough to be interviewed on television. Steve Deace did an outstanding job of recreating an interview of her using her own words: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsD0vlkCGyE Mike Wallace also interviewed Sanger in 1959 shortly before her death. Here is a clip of that 30 minute interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTtosRbK42o. According to Sanger, “the biggest sin in the world is bringing children into the world.” What a nice thought. The “Negro Project” referenced in the Deace interview shows the mind of Sanger and how she viewed the various races: https://concernedwomen.org/the-negro-project-margaret-sangers-eugenic-plan-for-black-americans/
With abortion another person is impacted by a woman’s “choice”. It is not a choice that she makes simply for herself. The “choice” the mother makes is whether or not another should live or die. Simply put, abortion is wrong because it is murder.
Certainly, abortion is legal and those who follow a legal process are not punished by our society, but they still must account for their actions, in this life and in the next. They must live with the consequences of the decision they made; the long-term consequences are not often discussed by pro-choice advocates, but there are often lasting physical and psychological impacts post-abortion.
Somehow our society has defiled itself to the point that we cannot recognize that the life of a child in the womb must be protected as much as the life of a newborn or the life of any other individual in our society must be protected. There are many prescriptions for saving America, our culture, and our way of life, but a pre-requisite for any of them is for us to recognize the value of life, starting with the life of the unborn.
