And since I’m writing about children…
Sure, label me the naysayer. It would be wrong, just as I believe slavery to be wrong. I’ll still have my doubts about this shift (borrowing a catchword from one of Louie Giglio’s recent sermon messages intended) in focus. Since previously writing about the advent of that modern day abolition movement called end-it movement I’m still convinced that although it is a valid concern, it’s also a distraction. A distraction from this…
One day after a former employee described how she heard a baby scream during a live-birth abortion, another worker at the Kermit Gosnell “House of Horrors’ abortion clinic testified today she saw a baby “jump” when she snipped her neck in an abortion.
Abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell faces 43 criminal counts, including eight counts of murder in the death of one patient, Karnamaya Monger, and seven newborn infants. Additional charges include conspiracy, drug delivery resulting in death, infanticide, corruption of minors, evidence tampering, theft by deception, abuse of corpse, and corruption.
Read that first sentence over again and stop to consider for a moment that abortion is the wholesale legalization, rationalization and justification of some of most gruesomeness of murders. It is the genocide of generations of Americans legally sanctioned by the 1973 SCOTUS Roe v. Wade decision. It is the Khmer Rouge slaughter of enemies of the state multiple times over. It is the Rwandan racial butchering multiple times over. It is the Nazi holocaust multiple times over. The employee heard one scream of a live-birth abortion. Imagine that scream multiplied 50 million times.
The reach of evil doesn’t stop there. The Khmer Rouge in Cambodia had their political reasons for genocide. The Nazis had their racial reasons. For 21st century America it is for the greater cause of convenience. The genocides of fallen regimes are over. America’s continues unabated. The controversy that was abortion isn’t the controversy it once was. We’ve rationalized it. It’s legal. It’s relegated to the backwaters of our consciences. That is an evil too.
It’s easier to follow government sanction and oppose or condone that which they do. Government legally opposes slavery, whereas it legally allows abortion. So when I observe red “X”s on buttons, ball caps or cars, I can’t help but wonder if this isn’t popular because it’s not only more socially acceptable than displaying a picture of an aborted child but it follows government sanction.
How is it that Passion Conferences doesn’t press its weight of influence among the college aged against abortion and instead choose slavery? Is abortion, to paraphrase Louie Giglio’s take on the homosexual agenda, not in the range of Passion’s priorities?
I’ll support the efforts to end slavery, just as I support efforts to end abortion. Each are but two snakes on the Medusa of head of evil.
