Planned Parenthood is commemorating 98 years of killing by “celebrating” Black History Month. Black American history is a journey of a people who did everything possible to escape an institution of violence and death. Did our predecessors really risk everything to restore our human dignity for us to run into the arms of another industry that profits from violence and death? Did they fight for us to become members of this society through the hard-fought freedoms of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments for us to be dismembered by the millions through “reproductive freedom”?
My sisters were girl scouts. And they loved it. I remember how they would come home singing songs I’ve never heard, breaking into harmony, and laughing about some song about billboards and flow-through tea bags. Do-Si-Dos (my personal favorite) and other sugary goodness were a reminder of how sweet it was that my sisters were involved in Girl Scouts.
The Root, a “black media” subsidiary of The Washington Post, claims that “safe” abortion and contraception save women’s lives. Special correspondent Keli Goff presents a free advertisement for Planned Parenthood. Never mind the abortion chain has never reduced the national unintended pregnancy rate…EVER. The CDC reports (since they started tracking this data in 1995) that the national unintended pregnancy rate hasn’t been reduced at all. It’s still 49%. But, Planned Parenthood has successfully increased their share of our tax dollars (now at over $540 million per year) and nationwide abortions since then, currently aborting nearly 330,000 annually.
New York's Governor, Andrew Cuomo, just announced that "right-to-life" advocates have "no place in the state of New York." The Radiance Foundation and its civil rights allies defy Governor Cuomo's intolerance and have launched the "DREAM IS DEAD" ad campaign (www.toomanyaborted.com/ny) in New York on Martin Luther King Day.
What do you get when you fail to meet stated annual goals, reduce unhealthy outcomes, yet increase the number of deaths of human beings? Rewarded.
This Christmas, as I see unbelievable and frightening events unfolding around the world, I have to remember one thing: God is in control. I don’t have to know the outcome of what is happening, because I know God deeply loves His creation, and He continues to enable triumph to arise from tragedy.
Sometimes we achieve clarity when we put an ideology into a different context. Our news media superficially celebrates those who fight for “equality” while denying it to millions through the violence of abortion. They go all Lady Gaga over someone who will stand for a whopping 11 hours to demand the death of innocent human life. Christ hung on a cross for a lot longer, and I’m pretty sure it was more physically tasking than standing in place in comfy pink sneakers. The difference? His sacrifice was so others wouldn’t perish.
Recently, I received an email from a father who told me of his love for his adopted son, Elijah. He wanted me to share a little of my experience, as an adoptee, with his amazing 8 year old. So, I thought I’d write him a letter…
It’s quite popular to join the fight against human sex trafficking. On college campuses across the country, one of the most uncontroversial efforts to engage in is fighting against this despicable human injustice. But those same campuses demonize those whose fight is the abolition of another, and more prevalent, human injustice—abortion.
