I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me. (Deuteronomy 5:6,7).
Over the past few months we’ve observed the fate of unborn babies tossed around like a political football. I put a video in my last posting of Nancy Pelosi making the claim that late-term abortion is “sacrosanct” to her and that the issue “shouldn’t have anything to do with politics.” Oh really? Then why is she using her political clout to keep abortion legal?
Though hypocritical, what she said is actually true – the fate of babies is not a political issue. It is a religious issue. It really boils down to who gets to be God.
Yahweh created mankind and is sovereign over all people. He alone gets to decide the questions of life and death. We, along with all other cultures, have laws against taking life. Murderers are punished in every culture in the world.
Forty years age, when Roe vs. Wade passed, the Supreme Court decided they could play God. It was a turning point in the official position of the United States of America. We used to be a one (Christian) nation under God; now we are a pluralistic, humanistic, secular nation under a new god – the god of expedience. The Supreme Court decided murder is acceptable when it is an unborn baby. They have either denied God, or pushed Him aside so they can be god.
Those of us who are in the Pro-life camp must continue to work very hard and understand that this is as much a religious battle as a political battle. A few generations ago, no one would have questioned whether or not murdering your own unborn child was right or wrong. Now, we have not only gone so far as to kick God out of the discussion, but Obama, Pelosi, and Planned Parenthood are claiming to be the new religion.
Note what Pelosi said about late-term abortion, “this is sacred ground to me…” She is using religious language. She is a high priestess in a cult that claims the right to murder any unwanted child. Obama is the high priest and they believe that together they will ensure that women have the “right to choose”.
Just look at the two of them exulting over their victory against those who would protect babies.
I said in my last posting that we should pray for them and so we should. They won’t have these self-satisfied smug looks on their faces when they meet the One Who created life. For the sakes of the millions of yet to be murdered babies, it would be right if they would repent and return to God.
Yes, this is a religious issue. Either Yahweh is God or “choice” is god. Those who knowingly kill unborn babies have made more of a choice than they seem to realize. We are in a religious war. Our secular media portrays the issue as anything except the fact that we are talking about real human beings – babies. “It’s a child, not a choice” was a popular bumper sticker some years ago. It is still the truth even if the media avoids it.
Those who adhere to the new religion of “choice” do so with as strong a faith as any other religious cult. They protect their faith with passion. Like any cult, they work hard to fool women into accepting their position. One way they have done this is to change the language in order to cover up what they are really doing. Whatever happens, the women they are misleading must never think about the being in their womb as a child.
The Pro-life group, Live Action, has captured on video the way that abortionists talk to women who come to their clinics. Lila Rose, president of Live Action, explains that her organization is trying to educate Americans about what an abortion really is. Thanks to the coverage of the Gosnell trial, people now know how gruesome abortion is. In spite of that, counselors in abortion clinics are still trying to convince women that abortion is a “procedure” not a killing of a baby. In a June 13, 2013 story in (LifeSiteNews.com), is a video of Live Action showing how doctors equivocate about the baby’s development, the humanity of the unborn child, and then graphic details about how the late-term abortion procedure ends the children’s lives.
In the video “the famous late-term abortionist Leroy Carhart tells Live Action’s investigator that in his “heart and mind,” life begins “when the mother thinks it begins, not when anybody else thinks it begins.”
(So, Carhart denies what God says about life; he actually is practicing the new religion of convenience or “choice”.)
He adds: “For some women, it’s before they conceive; for some women, it’s never. Even after they deliver, it’s still a problem, not a baby.”
(Note the obfuscation – It’s a “problem, not a baby.” In the new religion you must never use profane terms like “baby”. Nope, you can’t be part of our group unless you use our terms.)
Another video featured Dr. Carmen Landau, of Southwest Women’s Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and a counselor employed at the same facility.
When asked by the Live Action investigator, “Is it a baby?” the counselor answers:
Well what – how – what do you consider a baby? It’s definitely a fetus…Um, it depends what the term “baby” means to you, and how you perceive it.
(In the cult of “choice” you must stick to the sacred religious language. “Baby” is a swear word in this group and not allowed. This reminds us of another famous obfuscation, “It depends on what “is” “is”.)
When asked if the possibility of the pre-born baby feeling pain bothers her, Landau replies: I feel that it’s, um, necessary for the procedure to happen and, ultimately, um, safest, and kind of the most, kinda, humane way to do it, you know?
Abortion doctor Carmen Landau tells the investigator that the injection that will kill her baby is “like any shot, you know, like a flu shot, or a vaccine, really.” She alleges that babies in the womb do not feel pain from the fatal injection. “It’s not like you and I [sic] where when we get a flu shot, we’re kind of, ‘Ugh!’ – not – that – that – that experience of anxiety and suffering is not – it [the baby]‘s not capable of.”
(Now that’s faith! There’s no doubt that the evidence shows that unborn babies can suffer excruciating pain as early as 20 weeks gestation, and possibly even considerably earlier. Landau deliberately denies it. Don’t confuse her with the facts; she has faith. And they say that Christians are fools for believing in a God that they cannot see!)
It takes a great deal of faith to act on your conviction that a baby is only a “choice” or a “problem” or the “termination” of your “condition” in spite of all of the evidence to the contrary. That is why the pro-abortion group is worshipping a false god in their own religion with Cecile Richards and Nancy Pelosi as high priestesses and Obama as high priest.
Don’t let the media or politicians fool you – abortion is a religious issue.
