I know I have been missing in action for awhile on this blog. Like many times before, I have been out-of-town, have had technological difficulties with my computer and sometimes I have just not been able to dedicate efforts to this blog.
Still, there are many things going on right now that have to be shared even if I do not add commentary. The videos that I have been posting (and the complete collection of unedited videos are available here: http://www.centerformedicalprogress.org/) are needing to be spread far and wide.
Many years ago, I came across a report about some extremely ghoulish experiments with aborted babies. Many of the experiments described involved babies who had survived the abortion and yet, the experiments were done while they were alive. These descriptions revealed the depths of man's depravity. Nazi doctors did similar experiments on those who were believed to be "useless eaters". Clearly, nothing had changed from the 1940's to the 1970's unless they had just become more adept at hiding than before. The mentality had not changed, only the size of the victim.
As we see today, the mentality still has not changed and really....why should we should expect it to change? Until our nation humbles herself before God and repents, we are only going to see more of the same and worse. I saw a Facebook meme one day that said that your local abortion mill is open by permission of the church. Ouch. It is true. The church today is not much different than the churches that William Wilberforce dealt with when he fought against the slave trade back in the 18th century.
I am not going to share much more in the way of commentary. Do not get me wrong. I very much want to spend an hour or more on this subject. This video is the almost at the height of the most disturbing. The word "almost" is purposeful as I think there is more to come from these videos that could soar higher in depravity than even this.
Don't take my brief comments here for lack of passion or lack of feeling. It was very difficult to view these videos. The revulsion and rage is deep. I have cried out to God and I continue to pray.
Some people ask, "What can we do?" There are a lot of people who have tuned out after all these videos. They resign themselves to thinking that there is nothing they can do personally so they just ignore the whole subject altogether.
This Saturday, August 22, 2015 9 - 11 am is the day for a nationwide protest of Planned Parenthood in 119 different locations in 39 states. Just look up National Day of Protest Against Planned Parenthood and your particular state to see if anything has been organized. I am going to be an extra hand on deck at our local pregnancy resource center in case we get extra clients from the protest.
If you have a local pregnancy resource center/crisis pregnancy center in our area, consider volunteering there to help with baby clothes or any other odd jobs needing to be done. Most centers need donations of baby clothes, baby items, baby food, formula, diapers and maternity clothes. Pray for the centers daily if you cannot be active in the ways listed. Prayer is NEVER last resort and is, in my opinion, the most important fuel to keep the cpc's going. :)
If you do not have a center that helps pregnant women in your area, (pray for those centers still), share these videos. For some that is a scary proposition as it invites debate from pro-abortion family, friends and others. This is your time to learn about the subject and stand up for the voiceless. There are so many resources online to get pro-life information. Just admit to them that you do not have all the answers to their questions but you would be happy to find out the answers. Be bold and tell them you are still figuring this out yourself but you just can't let another baby die.
There are still millions of people who are not aware of these videos and these practices. We may never shut down the millions of tax dollars shunted to Planned Parenthood. There may never be any legal action taken against Planned Parenthood. There may never be any earthly consequences in the foreseeable future of Cecile Richards and her cronies. God's COURT is perfect and His timing is perfect. Their hours ARE numbered and they will definitely end. God has promised it so with the return of His son Jesus Christ. Until then, we can pray and we can share the Gospel to the lost and hurt. We also can share these videos and by word-of-mouth, empty the parking lots of all Planned Parenthoods and other abortion facilities. William Wilberforce trusted God implicitly in the battle against the slave trade. We can trust God and act.
