Toure’ Didn’t Thank My God for His Partner’s Abortion

I just saw a video of MSNBC’s Touré explaining how abortion “saved” him. He even thanks his god and country for abortion. His ex-girlfriend had an abortion years ago because he knew she was not the one for him, and she knew it too. They reasoned that abortion would save their lives and bring wealth and strength to the future. He publicly admits that now that he has seen a sonogram of his son with his current wife, he knows it was a life he destroyed. I guess it was worth it for him to be where he is now-publicly advocating abortion.

The message he concludes with is that a woman should get to choose what happens in her body even after he talks about the LIFE he saw in his wife’s womb.

It was not my God or the country I’m praying for that he thanked. My God is the living God who creates LIFE and knits babies together in their mother’s womb. My God is the God who gives LIFE more abundantly and the country I’m praying for promises LIFE and liberty to everyone

One day his son will hear his dad’s words and see his face when he admitted to killing his older sibling. One day his son will learn that if he had a different mother who was not so preferred by his dad that he would have easily had the same fate. One day his son will learn that sexual promiscuity is acceptable until he is ready to settle for a favorable woman. One day his son will learn that killing a child is an easy way to wealth and a good life as long as the child is conceived by a woman with whom he does not want to build a family or future.

Please pray with me that God intervenes with mercy on this man and his son. Please pray with me that the living God will turn this man’s heart towards his son and towards LIFE.

If Jacob rejected the children born by Leah just because they were not Rachel’s there would only have been two tribes of Israel, instead of twelve. Imagine how many tribes are missing from this generation because of the past forty years of rejection in the wombs of women who were not favored by their sexual partners.



Benjamin was the last son that Rachel bore and she died giving birth to him. Originally, she named him Benoni which means “son of sorrow.” His dad renamed him Benjamin which means “son of my right hand.” We need the hearts of fathers in America to be so turned toward their children that none of them are called “unwanted children of sorrow.” We need fathers who change what we call the unborn to “necessary, wanted children of my right hand.” We need to pray for fathers who love their children even before they are born.

My God, the living God who sent His Son Jesus to redeem us is the only One who can intervene and change hearts. Please pray with me that the hearts of men will be turned towards the hearts of children.
