Disturbing Astroworld incident is a reminder

Disturbing Astroworld incident reminds us that the cultural battle we face is a spiritual battle

Nine dead. Many more hospitalized. Shallow breath. Loss of vision. Screams for help. But the show must go on, right?

Writing this was complicated because I don’t think anyone, including attendees, truly knows what happened at American rapper and record producer Travis Scott’s chilling Astroworld Festival on November 5.

What seems to be a consistent story is that the crowd surged towards the stage, and people were trampled and shoved, resulting in multiple fatalities and many injuries.

The world wants us to believe that it doesn’t matter what we consume, the people with whom we surround ourselves, or the atmospheres in which we engage, but the tragedy at Astroworld proves the opposite is true.

According to the Wall Street Journal, it was towards the beginning of the performance that concertgoers began to compress towards the front of the stage, causing panic. “People began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic,” stated Houston’s Fire Chief, Samuel Peña.

Fox News reported over 300 were treated at a field hospital on site. Investigations into whether attendees were stabbed with syringes and injected with drugs are being held.

As if this event could not get even more disturbing, it was reported that the youngest individual to be injured and hospitalized was just nine years old, and among the victims who died, the youngest was just 14-years old.

Unfortunately, this kind of barbaric atmosphere is nothing new for Scott. In fact, in the past, concert chaos has been encouraged by the 30-year-old rapper. In 2017, Scott was arrested for inviting fans to rush the stage. Scott also has a history of publicly bragging about injured concert members.

Multiple concert attendees have described demonic energy and satanic symbolism at the event. The mainstream media has quickly relegated these firsthand accounts as QAnon conspiracies.

While we cannot confirm all of these theories, the deaths, injuries, claims that attendees felt like they were in Hell, stage styled like the gates of Hell, Scott’s shirt that appeared to look like people walking through a portal and turning into demons – and last but not least, the absolute profane music being performed, could lead us to believe that maybe, just maybe, there was quite a bit of Satanic activity going on at this event.

This brings us back to the very issue we continue to see become a more and more consistent pattern in our society: the poisoning of the minds of our youth.

Where are the parents? Who in the world is allowing their young child to listen to “songs” filled with horrendous profanity, let alone attend a whole event dedicated to listening to them?

But this is not just an issue for youth. It is an issue for all of us.

One of the sneakiest lies that the Enemy continuously whispers to this culture is that it really doesn’t matter much with what we fill our minds, what we put in front of our eyes, what we let pass through our ears, the atmospheres in which we put ourselves.

However, science and the Word of God tell us otherwise. Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” 

It matters what we think; it matters to what we listen to; it matters where we place ourselves.

In a depraved culture that lacks a fear of God, it is no surprise that media sources are making a joke out of the satanic theories about Astroworld. Little do they know that an atmosphere where the Enemy is not only present but welcomed is a recipe for absolute chaos and confusion.

No one deserved to die or be hospitalized at this horrific event. It should be a reminder to all of us that this cultural battle we fight is not one of flesh and blood. It is a spiritual battle. Pray for all who were hurt, pray for the families who lost loved ones, pray for Scott’s salvation, pray for parents to better protect the minds of their children, and ultimately pray for our society to wake up and call out evil for what it is.

Biden Administration Allows Doctors to Dispense Abortion Pill by Mail

By | News and Events, Sanctity of Life, YWA | No Comments

In light of COVID-19, the Biden Administration is temporarily allowing doctors to dispense the abortion pill by mail, making it a lot easier for women to perform at-home abortions.

This action will lift the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) former restrictions on abortion drugs and reverse a Trump Administration policy that was backed by the Supreme Court in January.

Current acting FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock informed the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) that allowing patients to receive abortion pills will not increase risks and will keep people safe from contracting the virus.[1]

Last year, ACOG requested that the FDA lift its requirement on the abortion drug, Mifepristone (also known as Mifeprex), arguing that the in-person requirement was unnecessary and placed patients and medical staff at risk of COVID-19.[2]

While ACOG and the FDA believe that it is unnecessary for abortion pills to be dispensed by a doctor in person, let’s just examine the FDA’s background on Mifepristone and what exactly it does to a woman and her baby.

FDA history:
Mifepristone was approved by the FDA in 2000 for up to 10 weeks’ gestation with an explicit warning that buyers should not purchase the drug over the Internet “because they will bypass important safeguards designed to protect their health.”

However, the FDA updated its website Tuesday, April 12, noting that it had conducted a “careful scientific review” of in-person and by-mail dispensing of the drugs “either by or under the supervision of a certified prescriber, or through a mail-order pharmacy when such dispensing is done under the supervision of a certified prescriber.”

“The FDA’s intent to exercise enforcement discretion with respect to these requirements during the public health emergency is the result of a thorough scientific review by experts within FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), who evaluated relevant information, including available clinical outcomes data and adverse event reports,” the FDA’s website said. [3]

What takes place during a medical or chemical abortion?
When a medical or chemical abortion takes place, Mifepristone is used together with another drug called Misoprostol (also known as Cytotec) to end the woman’s pregnancy.

In order to cut off blood and nourishment to her baby, Mifepristone will begin to block the mother’s natural production of “progesterone,” causing her child to starve to death.

Between 24-48 hours later, the woman will take Misoprostol which will cause her to contract and bleed in order to force the dead baby out of her womb. [4]

Several known risks of Mifepristone and Misoprostol include severe cramping, contractions, and heavy bleeding, as well as potential abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, and excessive bleeding. However, one of the biggest concerns with the drug is that since it has only had approval since 2000 in the United States, women are being subjected to a medical event with unknown risks.

According to Live Action’s websites, maternal deaths have even occurred. [5]

Conclusion:
While “health experts” think that the risk of contracting COVID-19 outweighs the dangers of lifting restrictions on the abortion pill, we can see that increasing the ability to perform DIY abortions results in many health risks for mothers (known and unknown) and an increasing number of babies innocently murdered from abortion.

We must now more than ever not only stand up for the innocent unborn but also for women who are being deceived into believing that abortion is safe and that it is their only option.
