The Death of Outrage

There was a book several years ago with the title The Death of Outrage.  It summed up what I thought was the main problem of my generation. However, I think every generation thinks they have had the worst of all generations.  I think this title really encapsulates the whole abortion battle.  The death of outrage.  
I often ask....what's it going to take to wake people up?   My own family member (not husband and children fortunately) who is a diehard pro-abortion proponent told me that things are "iffy" and it "depends on what you believe".  Is rape "iffy"?  Is pedophilia "iffy"?  Is bank robbery "iffy"?  No, only the murders of unborn babies are "iffy".   The sad thing is that people who are for abortion register no shock, no compassion and no moral outrage when they hear that women die from abortions.  NONE.  Yet they claim that women need good care.  There is zero outrage when they get the worst of care ever. 

I am not new to the moral contortions of the pro-abort.  You are NOT allowed to text and drive as that is a moral sin.  Why?  You could kill or injure a person.  The lesson I learned from the pro-abort is that you need to YELL at that person who is texting and driving because they aren't paying attention to the road and could injure or kill someone (including themselves).  However, do NOT yell at the abortionist as he is showing up at the abortion mill to kill babies. You can call a texter/driver a  "jerk" but you can't say that to an abortionist.  Capiche?  And we don't text while we drive because we could cause the LOSS OF LIFE of ourselves and others.  However, abortion which could cause the lives of women and others....that's perfectly okay.  You falla?

My "favorite":   Can't have abortion illegal because women die from back-alley abortions. Outrage!  No outrage when women die in "front-alley" abortions.  So the door moved from the back to the front....women are still dying but NOW there is zero outrage and the abortionist now escapes pretty much scot-free.  No outrage for criminals escaping prison.

I am aghast, once again, at the news of another woman who has been killed by abortion.  Am I surprised that abortion kills women?  No.  Am I surprised that abortionists are calloused and greedy?  No.  Am I surprised that abortion mills are filthy, unregulated and dangerous?  No. Am I even aghast that these abortionists get away with murder of infants and their mothers? No.   Yet, I am aghast that yet another woman and her baby has died.

This same family member is under the impression that these late-term abortions are "rare".  Define "rare".   Is it once in 40 years?   Once every ten years?   Once a year?   Define late-term.  Since Doe vs. Bolton allows for abortion for any reason all the way up to the time of delivery....what really is "too late" in the pregnancy?  For the pro-aborts I know....all 9 months are acceptable. For some abortion proponents, even if the baby is breathing on his or her own, it is preferable to set that baby aside to die (like Obama voted for as senator). 

Viability is often a term used to justify an abortion but here's the deal.....newborns are dependent on their mothers for life just as much as the 10th, 13th, 21st week of the unborn baby's.   Newborns are not killed because they are not "viable". Viability is a politician's word.

Abortionist Shelley Sella (in New Mexico) caused a woman's uterus to rupture at 35 weeks-THIRTY-FIVE weeks.  The woman who Carhart killed Christin Gilbert in 2006 and she was at 28 weeks.  We know babies to survive as early as 21 weeks which granted has been rare, but still very possible to save these babies!

Woman dead from abortion at 33 week gestation

Carhart cannot be reached. He has his money and now he knows he needs to be conveniently lie low for a short time.  Will anything happen to him legally?  Probably, nothing will happen to him.  I read an article that pro-life groups want him out of Maryland.  The idea is to send him elsewhere?  Why?  To kill women in OTHER states?  No, this guy needs prison.  Drop him,,Gosnell, Sella and Stephen Chase Brigham, et.al. into Alcatraz which clearly needs to be reopened.

Please continue to share the website Safe and Legal with as many people as you can.  Please share Abortiondocs and also Real Choice Blog (the sister page to this is Real Choice -abortion deaths since 1973).

Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton are not going to be overturned.  Yes, with God it IS possible but what we are seeing over the past 40 years is a change of heart and education.  Think about the 24 abortion mills/pill shops shut down in 2012 alone.  Think about the 650,000 people who attended the March for Life in Washington, D.C. last month.  There is a real change happening.  In 1991, there were over 2,000 abortion mills open.  Now in 2013 there are around 653 abortion mills open with 185 pill mills operating.  The 804 abortionists are getting sloppier and older and many are retiring and dying.  The turnover for abortion workers are quick and many of them are seeking help from And Then There Were None ministry.

Sidewalk counsel if you can, but if that is not possible, pray for those who do!!  The abortion cartel is desperate and they are acting on desperation.  Things are getting uglier out there in their desperate attempts to keep the lie going and to keep abortion in operation.  It's cutting into their profits and it's making their jobs harder.  By all means, do YOUR part to make it harder. We are not rocks or islands (don't be Paul Simon's song "I Am a Rock"!) to be isolated and not care for our brothers and sisters who are stumbling to the slaughter.  The abortion cartel can't do abortions if their parking lots are EMPTY.  In this world, it really seems that the bad guys are getting away with everything.  Why aren't all the abortionists in prison? Why are regular citizens' freedoms being stripped?   Will justice ever be served?   God will NOT be mocked for one thing and Psalms 37:1 says to not fret because of evildoers.  As always, the Word brings the wisdom and comfort to me!  Also check out Proverbs 24:1-22. 
Ephesians 6:12-13
We we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 

I don't have just one family member who is diehard pro-abortion.  I have several and they are products of  ill-education and of generations of lies passed down through the ages. Satan's lies are always the same.  They have bought the lie and they believe the manufactured slogans.  They need healing and I pray for a breakthrough for that healing to take place.  They need to KNOW Jesus desperately.  Many of you probably have the same situations going as well.  Please continue praying for these lost and deceived ones.  

I often meet young people who either self-identify as "pro-choice" or admit they are on the fence about the subject.  There was even one girl who said, "I really don't know what I think about abortion" which is the most honest answer ever.  She didn't pretend to have the answers but she wasn't going to decide based on lack of information.  These are the best meetings because one can see they are open to truth and they want to learn more.   So, I tell them about Planned Parenthood's origins of racism and eugenics.  I tell them about Planned Parenthood's protection of sexual predators and their lies about prenatal development.  I share brochures that I have purchased and share vital websites (like the ones at the bottom of this blog).   I tell them about the women Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills have killed and about babies who have survived abortions (only to be set aside to die).  

Shock registers in their eyes.  Their faces become distorted with utter disbelief.  They ask "How can that be?" or "Why don't we hear about this?"  Then I explain that our national media and press is pro-abortion and don't want abortion to stop.  "Have you heard any of this in your latest news shows or your magazines?"  No.  You won't hear of it so now YOU need to go on the hunt for your own answers.  Then I give them pro-life websites to check out what is REALLY going on in their country.  They are rattled.  They often say, "I just had no idea and now I want to know more".  We CAN influence and hearts and minds can change.  I no longer think of Roe vs. Wade as changed (which wouldn't make abortion illegal 100% anyway).

My pro-abort family members' hearts are hardened and their ears and minds stopped up with granite.  Those who need healing the most are often like this. I pray for them as I love them dearly and want to see them free of their self-made prisons.  It's hard to imagine what they would look like knowing and serving the Lord instead of their little gods but God has the vision of that and He has the timing and the ways.  I will wait upon the Lord.  In the meantime though, it makes for some very shallow relationships.  You can only talk about the weather for so long.   

I close with Psalm 37 for today.

37 Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.

Trust in the Lord, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret—it only causes harm.

For evildoers shall be cut off;
But those who wait on the Lord,
They shall inherit the earth.
10 For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
But it shall be no more.
11 But the meek shall inherit the earth,
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked plots against the just,
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
13 The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees that his day is coming.
14 The wicked have drawn the sword
And have bent their bow,
To cast down the poor and needy,
To slay those who are of upright conduct.
15 Their sword shall enter their own heart,
And their bows shall be broken.

16 A little that a righteous man has
Is better than the riches of many wicked.
17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
But the Lord upholds the righteous.

18 The Lord knows the days of the upright,
And their inheritance shall be forever.
19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time,
And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
20 But the wicked shall perish;
And the enemies of the Lord,
Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish.
Into smoke they shall vanish away.

21 The wicked borrows and does not repay,
But the righteous shows mercy and gives.
22 For those blessed by Him shall inherit the earth,
But those cursed by Him shall be cut off.

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
And He delights in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the Lord upholds him with His hand.

25 I have been young, and now am old;
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,
Nor his descendants begging bread.
26 He is ever merciful, and lends;
And his descendants are blessed.

27 Depart from evil, and do good;
And dwell forevermore.
28 For the Lord loves justice,
And does not forsake His saints;
They are preserved forever,
But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
29 The righteous shall inherit the land,
And dwell in it forever.

30 The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom,
And his tongue talks of justice.
31 The law of his God is in his heart;
None of his steps shall slide.

32 The wicked watches the righteous,
And seeks to slay him.
33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand,
Nor condemn him when he is judged.

34 Wait on the Lord,
And keep His way,
And He shall exalt you to inherit the land;
When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
35 I have seen the wicked in great power,
And spreading himself like a native green tree.
36 Yet he passed away,[a] and behold, he was no more;
Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.

37 Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright;
For the future of that man is peace.
38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together;
The future of the wicked shall be cut off.

39 But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
40 And the Lord shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them,
Because they trust in Him.
