Standing for Life and Against Infanticide

stop-abortionsToday there were “peaceful protests and prayer vigils at 40+ locations in California” to oppose taxpayer dollars going to enrich Planned Parenthood so they can continue their killing of baby humans. These non-violent advocates for the sanctity of human life reminded us that some PP clinics have, reportedly, even arranged to sell baby-body-parts, as part of their business plan.

Sadly, one of PP’s key clinics in Los Angeles County is located just blocks from our church, in the center of the San Fernando Valley.  They have strategically located there in order to prey upon the Latino and African American communities, which surround our church campus.

Abortion activists argue for absolute individual autonomy. Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards repeatedly tells audiences that she and women around the country are “so sick of men telling us what to do with our bodies.” No one has a right, she and her “social warriors” insist, to tell them what to do with their own bodies or with what or who is growing inside those bodies.

This tyranny of the individual callously ignores even the basic assumptions for human rights:

  1. If it is growing inside the womb, it is alive.
  2. If it is alive, it must be a human life.
  3. If it is a human life, it is precious, valuable and worthy of protection, like you and I are!

Sadly, the recent Democratic president and his party’s presidential nominee both advocate for “partial-birth abortions”—barbarously bringing all but the head of a fully-developed human fetus from the womb, before cruelly killing it. Their radical, leftist ideologues now celebrate abortions as good for both women and society and the present Democrat Party Platform calls for taxpayers to pay for their awful choices of abortion.

While it is recognized that the Supreme Court has made it legal, abortion is a private, personal choice and American taxpayers should not be forced to pay for those choices, which many believe to be immoral acts. Polls show that a wide majority (63%) of Americans say they oppose taxpayer funding of abortion. This includes nearly half (45%) of pro-choice Americans! Racial opposition includes significant percentages of African-Americans (65%) and Hispanic-Americans (61%).

This issue involves more than infanticide itself. It is a “last days” manifestation of a highly sensual society, many sinful lifestyles, and unbridled sexual immorality–of which we are warned in Scripture.

Our Creator has formed each human being in His own image and abhors abortion. He holds those accountable who wantonly take the innocent blood of our unborn sons and daughters.

During this African-American History Month, it is important to recognize that abortion for Blacks in America is a genocidal, life-and-death matter. Many Americans (black and white) are unaware of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s Negro Project.  Created in 1939, this was her eugenic plan for Black America. She and her followers sought to contain the “inferior” races through segregation, sterilization, birth control and abortion.

Today, Planned Parenthood’s strategic placement of their abortion mills in minority neighborhoods has contributed to the drastically declining birth rates of Blacks. Currently, their replacement fertility rate is so low that experts fear they may not sustain their own race, in this “land of the free.”’s founder, Pastor Clenard Childress, Jr. has said, “The most dangerous place for an African-American is in the womb.” It is time for all races to stand up for life, from conception to the grave, and peacefully stand against infanticide.
