Under President Trump, the U.S. Returns to Honoring Life Globally

By | LBB, Legal, News and Events, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

One of the things President Donald Trump should be most proud of from his short time in the White House is his decision to move the U.S. away from the hideous business of promoting abortion-on-demand around the world.

On Jan. 23, 2017, just three days after his swearing-in ceremony, President Trump reinstated what has been known as the “Mexico City Policy” (because of its roots at a population conference in Mexico City). The policy, initiated by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, to the delight of most Americans, prohibits U.S. taxpayer dollars from going to organizations that perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning abroad.

Big Abortion, of course, despises the policy…

How long, O Lord?

By | LBB, Legal, News and Events, Planned Parenthood, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

Most times I am outraged, really incensed, at the evil that is abortion.  I get angry at the debasement of the very image of God.  The way outside forces prey on vulnerable women for their personal and corporate profit.

Sometimes a sense of the reality of the sin we are committing as a nation weighs in on me.

But not today. Today, I fight to hold back tears (as I write in a public place).  Today, after watching the latest Center for Medical Progress video, I feel such pain for the people (educated professionals) that are part of this dark industry.

Here is the video:
[Editor’s note: the original video has now been removed from YouTube (they don’t want the truth to be heard!). Here we provide a shortened version still available through Twitter posts]

I want to be furious.  I want to be enraged.  It would be an appropriate response to such callousness—such cold, raw disregard for life, fragility and love.  These poor babies are thought about as “pointy skulls.”

I want to cry out to God, as the psalmist did, “How long, o Lord?”  I feel this irrational desire to pray as Jesus did on the cross, “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they do.”  But my heart sinks deeper still as I ponder that they do.  They do know exactly what they do.

And they do it anyway.

They do it with glee.  They discuss it between wine and giggles.  They make a living from it.

How long, o Lord?

How long will you and I, friend, turn a blind eye to this evil?  How long will you and I dismiss it as someone else’s problem?  How long will we pretend to fight injustice somewhere else, while we perpetrate an injustice of the harshest kind on our most vulnerable?

How long will we compartmentalize and rationalize what is plain for all of us to see?  A vulnerable baby, sacrificed at the altar of self? How long will we allow our court to push this evil on us?  How long will we allow laws making it possible to stand?

How long will we continue to support and promote the evil of abortion with our own money?

Oh yes, we can try to con ourselves into thinking we have no part in it, but the heart-cutting truth is that we all support this with our own money.  My money, your money makes conferences like the one we just saw in this video possible.

Our money pays for them to get together to discuss the harvesting and selling of baby body parts.

Let that sink in.  We are not guiltless (ok, forget about holding back the tears now).

We are not innocent.  We live our lives, every day under this horrid cloud.  We wake up, eat, drink, work, have time with family, even worship in our churches under this national cloud.

O Lord, how long?

Still, we do not despair.  That would be too easy.  No, we must renew our strength and set upon the hard, tedious, inconvenient task of exposing this infringement on our most basic right.  We must expose the painful, virulent nature of abortion.  We must repent.

That is why we must be so grateful for the work of people like David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress.  Their incredible sacrifice has ignited the moral conscience of many, and we will continue to take that work to the ends of the world until this evil is eradicated everywhere it is found.

If you are pro-choice, I plead with you to consider the reality of what is in front of you as you watch this video.  Forget about what you have been told and just consider what you are seeing, what you are hearing.  Are you okay with that?

We can do better than this.  We can be a compassionate people, a loving people.  Let us love one another then.  Let us love our daughters, so that they may never even come close to feeling a need to put themselves at the mercy of one of these exploiters.

May God grant us the wisdom and will to put an end to abortion once and for all.

Judge Neil Gorsuch 

Similar to Scalia, he is a constitutionalist, who believes the Constitution should be interpreted as written and rejects the liberal proposition of a “living, breathing document.”
