Arizona, Oklahoma, Illinois and Pennsylvania all prohibit this sex-selection choice (sickening to think that 46 states do not prohibit this). Of course, even in those states, we can't trust or guarantee that Planned Parenthood isn't skirting the law. After all, they defy the laws on mandatory reporting of statutory rape so it only stands to follow their logic in other areas as well.
No mystery to the Christians who see this pretty plainly....we are all equal in God's eyes no matter what our skin color is, what our gender is and what our age is. While He certainly designed our outside appearances, He weighs what is in our hearts (and we Christians know how desperately wicked those are!).
The blog title is a song (changed a bit) from the 1970's. My dad sang it on his guitar and it popped into memory at this subject. However, the end of the song asks the question..."When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn." That last question can be directed to not just the abortionist industry but all who allow it to happen.
It's tough out there....we know there are already plenty of people who are living a life of debauchery proudly. The Bible tells us not to be surprised by them....that's to be expected. However, what about the believers? When
will THEY ever learn? I also know and meet plenty of people who proclaim Jesus as their Savior and claim to love him but they do not learn. Abortion is permitted by the silence of the church. This comment has been made repeatedly on Facebook pro-life pages. I wince because it's true and I never want MY church to be silent. I pray it never does
I have been working on a project of late. It's all God's timing and ways as to how this will all go. As I do my work, the thought never leaves my mind that if all the churches of my city were to be involved, abortion would be a distant memory in a quick fashion. It would be a pretty instant change and babies, moms, dads, and families would be saved. But it's not just my city.....the whole country could be rid of the heinous, barbaric act of child sacrifice overnight if the churches would take a stand and not be silent. Not at all different from the churches who stayed silent on the Jews' disappearance and extermination in Germany.
As the story goes, the churches there heard the trains carrying the Jews and heard the cries of those whisked away to suffering and death. These churches knew but instead of dealing with it, they covered up the cries by singing a little louder. We don't want any child to be aborted.....no matter what the gender, color or physical and mental state might be....but we need to spread this word farther, wider and louder to the corners of the earth....no more targeting the "least of these".
When will WE ever learn? Even better than this song lyric is God's Holy and Perfect, uncorrupted Words ...
2 Timothy 3:6-9
New King James Version (NKJV)
6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; 9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.
