Yesterday, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in our nation’s capital, and unlike last Saturday’s histrionics, they did it respectfully, peacefully, prayerfully. They marched, rallied and pleaded for something that is supposedly guaranteed in our Declaration of Independence, the Right to Life. They were largely ignored and downplayed by the media, but they did it as they have done it every year since 1973, to cry out for the “least of these”, pre-born children.
Table Talk Notes
Today, we contrast the March for Life on Friday with the Women’s March on Jan 21: one fighting for life, the other fighting for “lifestyle”.
Hypocrisy of the Women’s March
Women’s March excluded pro-life feminist groups (and transgendered “women”), and was funded by Planned Parenthood and George Soros, an atheist globalist
Sign: “if Mary had had an ABORTION we wouldn’t be in this MESS”
Other signs: “Abortion is a Human Right” (but life isn’t), “Eradicate Men” (feminist “Milo” posted a video urging the killing of all male babies & men, so “the species can go on with just women”), “My Body – My Choice” (do they ever choose abstinence?), “Keep Your Rosaries Off My Ovaries” (but you must pay for my birth control)
Women at the Women’s march in Berlin were heard shouting “Allah Akbar” (not “Allahu”, indicating the woman was not Muslim) , and DC march organizer is a proponent of Sharia Law and tied with terror groups.
While decrying the potential degradation to women’s rights by Trump, participants totally ignored the multi-millions of dollars Hillary Clinton has received from repressive Sharia-controlled Islamic nations, where women who were raped or have an abortion and homosexuals are stoned or otherwise brutally executed. They even donned hijabs in a show of solidarity with Islamic women. In Saudi Arabia women are not even allowed to drive, and many Islamic nations won’t allow girls to be educated. “We have been fighting to remove the headscarf. Why are these stupid women putting them on?” asked an Egyptian woman within earshot of Cheri Berens as they watched the protests from a Cairo coffee shop.
At the inauguration the day before, while anti-Trump protesters are chanting “Love Trumps Hate” into a bull horn while seeming to block Trump supporters, one of the protesters lights a young woman’s hair on fire with a lighter as she turned her back to them for a “selfie”.
Romans 1:18-32 | For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
Roe v Wade (nationally legalized abortion by creating women’s right to “privacy” over their own bodies up to viability, and after for “life/health” of mother) and Doe v Bolton (creating a broad “health” exemption for abortions after viability)
- Abortion doctors themselves freely say that the majority of abortions (about 75%), incl late term abortions are elective (financial, lifestyle preservation, “can’t handle” a baby)
Jan 23, 2017 article from Associated Press “Democrats defend abortion access with resolution”
- Democrats Sen Chris Larson (Milwaukee) and Rep Chris Taylor (Madison) “have introduced a resolution imploring their Republican colleagues not to restrict abortion access… The resolution calls on lawmakers to recognize abortions are an essential part of women’s health care and to refrain from imposing burdensome regulations on providers.”
What Planned Parenthood isn’t telling you about Planned Parenthood
Cecile Richards: “What’s going to happen as a result of this is, if this bill ever becomes law, millions of women in this country are going to lose their health care access — not to abortion services, but basic family planning. You know, mammograms, cancer screenings, cervical cancer.” Except, they really don’t do much of these things anyway.
What abortion proponents aren’t telling you
Effects of abortion
“Every Child a Wanted Child” (Margaret Sanger’s Slogan & Bio title)
On the Generations X, Y and Z that have lost 59 million of their ranks since Roe v Wade—the difference between being “wanted” and being “welcome”.
2016 Democrat Party Platform, under the heading “Ensure the Health and Safety of All Americans” (p37) Securing Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice: Democrats are committed to protecting and advancing reproductive health, rights, and justice. We believe unequivocally, like the majority of Americans, that every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion—regardless of where she lives, how much money she makes, or how she is insured. We believe that reproductive health is core to women’s, men’s, and young people’s health and wellbeing. We will continue to stand up to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood health centers, which provide critical health services to millions of people. We will continue to oppose—and seek to overturn—federal and state laws and policies that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment. We condemn and will combat any acts of violence, harassment, and intimidation of reproductive health providers, patients, and staff. We will defend the ACA, which extends affordable preventive health care to women, including no cost contraception, and prohibits discrimination in health care based on gender. Source
2 Timothy 3:12-13 | Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
How God views the sacrificing of children
Leviticus 18:21, 26-30 | You shall not give any of your children to offer them to Molech, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord… But you shall keep my statutes and my rules and do none of these abominations, either the native or the stranger who sojourns among you (for the people of the land, who were before you, did all of these abominations, so that the land became unclean), lest the land vomit you out when you make it unclean, as it vomited out the nation that was before you. For everyone who does any of these abominations, the persons who do them shall be cut off from among their people. So keep my charge never to practice any of these abominable customs that were practiced before you, and never to make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God.”
Leviticus 20:2-5 | “Say to the people of Israel, Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. I myself will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people, because he has given one of his children to Molech, to make my sanctuary unclean and to profane my holy name. And if the people of the land do at all close their eyes to that man when he gives one of his children to Molech, and do not put him to death, then I will set my face against that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in whoring after Molech.
When does life begin according to the Bible?
Psalm 139:13-16 | For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
Jeremiah 1:5 | “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
The importance to God of children, and the blessings for protecting them
Exodus 1:15-17, 20-21 | Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah, “When you serve as midwife to the Hebrew women and see them on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall kill him, but if it is a daughter, she shall live.” But the midwives feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live… So God dealt well with the midwives. And the people multiplied and grew very strong. And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families.
Matt 18:1-6 | At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
Mark 10:13-16 | And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
