Why Christians Must Continue To Speak Out Against Abortion

You want the truth about abortion and its proponents?

I refuse to concede intellectual and scientific superiority to the faction which claims to know how the universe began, but cannot tell me when life begins in the womb.

*- Anonymous

It is estimated that there have been over 56,000,000 abortions (that's 56 million!) in the United States alone since Roe v. Wade, and over 1,300,000,000 abortions (that's 1.3 billion!) worldwide since 1980. Let me see if I can help us to better understand what this actually means.

Late-term abortions...in the 24th week of pregnancy.

Babies born alive...from failed abortion attempts.

Abortionists practicing infanticide...only a few blocks from the White House.

More murders committed in the name of "pro-choice" than Hitler committed during the Holocaust of Jews. Need a more recent reference point? Murder statistics from 2011? 8,583 killed by guns and 333,964 killed by Planned Parenthood abortions [Source].

And yet, our elected President chose to give the following speech at a Planned Parenthood event the other day that was beyond disturbing. Why? Because Planned Parenthood "saves lives" we're told.

US President Barack Obama recently became the first sitting President to address Planned Parenthood, ending his speech with: "Thank you Planned Parenthood and God Bless you."

Dearly beloved, this is satanic behavior of the worst kind! To blaspheme the Lord by using His holy name to bless the very organization responsible for legally-sanctioned murder is absolutely despicable! To do so while Kermit Gosnell's abortion/murder trial is still underway is the height of arrogance!

You can read more about the Obama love fest with Planned Parenthood.

By the way, how ridiculous was it for Planned Parenthood to open the morning's proceedings by feigning heartfelt concern over the loss of life in West, TX? And how sickening was it to watch all the happiness, to see all the smiles, and to hear all the applause and cheering over the intentional murder of babies?

Now, please listen to this eye-opening 40-minute radio program that connects Obama's legacy to the continuing murder of millions of defenseless babies through abortion. It also compares the demonic atrocities of Hitler and the Nazi's with the demonic barbarities of the abortion Holocaust and those who perpetuate the killing of the most defenseless members of society, by abortion, in our day.

I like how a commentary from the American Thinker described the current state of affairs.

Planned Parenthood's Horrific Ironies Exposed By The Gosnell Trial
By Janice Shaw Crouse

"Kermit Gosnell's name is certain to be recorded as one of the most ghoulish figures in recent history. The revelations about his abortion 'house of horrors' have appalled the nation, earning him the title of 'human butcher.' The graphic images of his appalling techniques have horrified, sickened and dismayed people around the world. Yet, ironies abound in this dismaying case of savagery. Gosnell's employees are the ones exposing practices that overshadow the purported squalor of back-alley illegal abortions. In the face of unbelievably inhuman actions, the President of the United States joined those with ice in their blood, who continued to defend 'choice' even after viewing the reality of savagely 'slitting the throat,' 'tearing off limbs' or 'severing the spinal cord' of newly-born babies. Planned Parenthood -- the nation's largest abortion provider is also the largest recipient of federal funding under Title X [fully 45 percent of their total funding is from taxpayer monies, over $500 million] -- in a desperate act of cold calculation and sad irony, recently launched a fundraising campaign boldly declaring a 'Right to Shoes.' In light of the public images of babies' feet -- tiny footprints are often used as pro-life logos and the trial pictures from the Gosnell clinics include images of jars containing small baby feet -- the Planned Parenthood fundraising campaign is especially repulsive and appalling. No doubt many who see the campaign will recall the Planned Parenthood lobbyist who testified -- seemingly without a twinge of conscience -- before Florida legislators, declaring that 'wanted' babies were the only ones deserving medical care. That Planned Parenthood representative, Alisa LaPolt Snow, repeated several times that all decisions about abortion -- even late term or born-alive ones -- 'should be left up to the woman, her family and her physician.'"

First the Gosnell trial, the President's appearance and remarks, and now this undercover video.

This is the new undercover video that Planned Parenthood and their abortion industry cohorts DON'T want you to see! But don't take my word for it. As late-term abortionist Cesare Santangelo explains to one of Live Action's undercover investigators in this shocking new video exposé: "It's all in how vigorously you do things to help a fetus survive at this point … We would not help it," when discussing what he would do (or not do) to help the child, if he/she survived a failed abortion at his clinic.

Here's the gruesome truth: this new undercover exposé proves Kermit Gosnell's "House of Horrors" is only the tip of the iceberg in the abortion empire! As you will see, these undercover investigators revealed the truth about a late-term abortion clinic only a few steps away from the White House. Now we urgently need you to publicize this damning footage and expose the abhorrent nature of the abortion industry.

It's a 6-minute video that has been online for a couple of days now, but only has 50,000 views. If a "Harlem Shake" video and a music video from Psy can get hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of views, then we should be able to make this viral.

Lastly, I like what Pastor Michael Schuermann from Daring Lutheran briefly wrote about all of this.


President Obama spoke to Planned Parenthood this morning (Friday, April 26th). He said all sorts of things. Yet what was most galling, at least in my mind, is how he ended his speech. Here’s what he said:
"As long as we’ve got to fight to make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve also got a president who’s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way,” said Obama. “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you."
No, Mr. President. You have authority from God to exercise your leadership of the country for the good of its citizens. You have authority from God to call out an organization which exists in order to murder – and advocate for the ever-increasing “legality” of such murder – the most helpless among us, namely the unborn (or even the born).

Unfortunately, you too have consistently advocated for that same murder.

Mr. President, you must repent. Your office – given to you from God – demands that you protect the unborn. This will be unpopular. I imagine your own party will abandon you, maybe even your closest friends and family. Do and say what is right, Mr. President.

And in the meantime do not dare to offer up the Lord’s name in vain. Do not invoke the name of He who gives and loves life as some perverse blessing over an organization that is a source of such evil and death. Mr. President, repent. God does not bless evil, Mr. President. He hinders and destroys it.

May God hinder the wicked plans of Planned Parenthood, President Obama, and all those who are like-minded, that their evil plans may come to nothing. And may He bring them all to repentance and faith in His saving Gospel – trusting in Christ’s forgiveness – that they may have eternal life. Amen.

Amen indeed.

Please do the right thing yourself whenever you can to speak out against abortion or else consider your silence enough to make you complicit in this ongoing American genocide (Galatians 6:10).

Yes, it's the "New Holocaust" and the video below will explain why in just 33 minutes.

Thank you for visiting A Lutheran Layman! Please feel free to leave a comment or a question since we do not exercise censorship. We've seen a similar policy with other blogs and it's worth repeating: Please act as if you're a guest in my home, and we'll get along just fine. I think anyone would agree that the kind of back-and-forth that is characteristic of blogs/chat forums and social media is becoming tiresome for all of us. Still, we should confess, edify, and love (and contend and defend when needed). Bottom line? Search the Scriptures! Apply Acts 17:11 to anything and everything you find here and, if you do happen to disagree with something you find here (which is certainly ok), or think I'm "irresponsible" and "wrong" for writing it, then please refute my position by supporting yours with Scripture and/or the Confessions. I don't think that's an unreasonable request, especially for those who identify themselves as "Christians" here, right? Besides, Proverbs 27:17 tells us "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another" and 2 Timothy 3:16 says, "all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness." If you have an opinion that's great, I welcome it, but try to support it using God's Word. I mean, if the goal here is to help us all arrive at the truth of God's Word (myself included), then it should be easy to follow through on this one simple request (I'm talking to all you "Anonymous" visitors out there). Grace and peace to you and yours!
