Peter had denied Christ three times, but post-resurrection and with the Holy Spirit, he was back in Jerusalem and completely in the face of the Jewish leaders. Jesus is indeed the Author of life, and He was raised from the dead.
Acts 3:14–15 But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.
We’ve been blessed with three amazing and fun dogs, but they’ve never been very smart. I hope our next dog is this trainable.
It is such a simple question to ask anyone: What would the discussion be about if the murderer had run over that many people in a truck – a la Waukesha — instead of using a gun? If the answer isn’t “ban trucks,” then it also isn’t “ban guns.”
Look, the men of Sodom groped for the door to pursue their homosexual desires even AFTER God blinded them*. Do you really think the Leftists, including the “Christian” Leftists, are going to give up so easily?
*Genesis 19:11 And they struck with blindness the men who were at the entrance of the house, both small and great, so that they wore themselves out groping for the door.
This is one of the many verses that the “Christian” Leftists/”Red-letter Christians” ignore. Jesus doesn’t say people are basically good. He tells them to their face that they are evil. And He’s right. We desperately need him and what He did for us. He is not the nice, safe, affirming-you-in-your-sins Jesus of the “Christian” Left and the secular world. He’s the real Jesus who speaks the truth.
Matthew 7:11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is a gun-grabbing, grooming pro-abortion ghoul, as well as being a fake Hispanic. I don’t recall him saying a thing about the people killed when the truck drove through the parade in Waukesha, WI. I hope he gets crushed in the November election. In fact, that’s a good test for the gun-grabbers. Ask them to show you their righteous indignation over the Waukesha deaths and their grand plans to control trucks after that. If they can’t show you anything, it means they are just gun-grabbers who mean you ultimate harm.
Best typo of the year:
“When in God’s name will we do what needs to be done to, if not completely stop, fundamentally change the amount of the carnage that goes on in this country?” Biden continued.
When Roe v Wade is overturned and states start banning abortions.
This is so creepy, but something I’ve been saying for a while. Whether the pro-aborts are this explicit or not, they always send this implicit message to their kids and grandkids. Because love is love, or something.
Blatantly titled “The Bible is Nothing” the video contains blasphemy, profanity, homoerotic references, a denial of God, and a posture of menace towards the scripture. Some of the lyrics are:
The Bible is nothing Nothing but poetry pain and performance. The bible is no more holy than Allen Ginsburg’s howls of life No more peaceful than Oscar Wilde’s Requiescat in pace, And no more stronger than Tammy F*cking Faye’s g*ddamn eyelash glue….
The Power of the Two-Parent Home — It is about two parents, not skin color. But the Left’s incentives for single parenting had a disproportionate impact on blacks.
We can lament that black children in two-parent families are still 2.4 times more likely to be in poverty than white children (12% v. 5%), but we should also observe that white children raised by only a mother are 2.6 times as likely to be in poverty as black children raised by two parents (31% v. 12%).
I saw a pro-abort atheist post this, as he thought it showed hypocrisy on behalf of pro-lifers. But that logic would only hold if the pro-lifer wanted it to be legal to crush and dismember the homeless person. Just because we want it to be illegal to kill your children – regardless of location – doesn’t mean we have to fund them and any bad decisions they make for life. The Molech-worshiping ghouls aren’t big on logic, just empty and deadly sound bites. Oh, and Christians are still more generous in terms of giving time, money, and even blood than non-Christians.
I realize that Ezekiel was a prophet and we are not, but this is still convicting. We should be bold in proclaiming God’s truth to the world about sin and redemption.
Ezekiel 3:17–19 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. But if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, or from his wicked way, he shall die for his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul.
All the white-Leftist-driven “defund the police” and “burn down your cities and chase businesses away” and “crush and dismember your children” policies are working out great for black people.
I’ve lost count of how many “conspiracy” theories we were right about. One day they’ll admit they stole the 2020 election, but just waive it off as being no big deal.
Yeah, no one was murdered or even killed in wars before guns were invented.
‘The Chosen’ Director Dallas Jenkins Affirms Mormons are Christians in ‘Definitive, Final’ Video — Mormonism was founded on the concept that the “real” church was no longer in existence. Therefore, Mormons, just like Catholics, teach that Protestants aren’t truly saved. The doctrines of both religions couldn’t be more clear. Yes, a few Mormons and Catholics might be “saved and confused” if they have just read the Bible and don’t know or believe what their organizations teach about Jesus, justification, etc. But I wouldn’t follow any of them.
Leftists: You’re transphobic!
Me: You are saying that I have a diagnosable mental disorder with an irrational fear of people who think they can change genders, but you are the one pretending they can change genders? Indeed.
Great response to a creepy company. We need to out more woke companies like this. If I had insurance with them I’d be switching today. Hopefully, they’ll fire whatever Leftist perverts were behind designing and approving this stupid plan. I just got through telling our CEO and others “don’t be like Disney.” Now I can add, “or State Farm.”
Update: They pulled the promotion after a backlash, but why did it have to come to that?
So many people get the “where two or three are gathered” part of this passage wrong. They think it means that Jesus shows up if two Christians are there. But does He leave the room if someone gets up to go to the bathroom? The passage is about church discipline, not prayer or anything else. It means that if you follow his instructions for church discipline, it is as if He is there. The system works, but most churches are too cowardly to do it. It honors him to believe what He said, and it is the best way to love your neighbors.
A former church did a spotless Matthew 18 process, and at a church meeting, they described how a woman was divorcing her husband unbiblically. If she didn’t repent, they would remove her from fellowship. The husband was in the meeting and seemed to appreciate the support. The wife wasn’t there. (We moved at that time, so we don’t know how it ended.)
They also did church discipline on a guy leaving his wife for unbiblical reasons. He became the worship leader at another church, even though the elders at our church warned them of his issues. The wife deeply appreciated how the elders stood by her and did the right thing.
At a Methodist church that we left for doctrinal and many other reasons, a guy had an emotional affair and was divorcing his wife for unbiblical reasons. The female associate pastor (one of the reasons to leave) heard about it but did and said nothing. And the guy had taught the youth for many years. There was zero church leadership involvement or discipline.
Matthew 18:15–20 “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
“Healthy at any size” is a vicious lie designed to virtue signal — or, for some women, to eliminate the competition. It is more like “high blood pressure at any size” or “Type II diabetes at any size.”
Oklahoma Passes Ban On Almost All Abortions Starting At Conception — Good for them! That will save a lot of lives. Almost there. I have great sympathy for rape and incest victims, but we shouldn’t kill the children of rapists. And many abortions are done to hide the crimes of rape and incest. And watch out for skyrocketing false rape claims in Oklahoma.
Waiting for feminists to demand equal representation in these jobs . . .
BLM deceived the NFL and NBA. BLM is a business, not a movement. A shady one, at that. And yet, neither league will admit it. . . .
The two most influential sports brands in the country didn’t normalize a group protesting racism, they instead promulgated a Marxist, often violent, political organization which enriches themselves rather than helping the causes they pretend to champion.
Sports have not eased racial tensions. Rather, the leagues have assisted in the divide by spreading fear.
Sports have also helped lift a fraudulent organization to enough prominence that it can pay a baby daddy around $1 million. I just hope he gets a mansion out of the deal, too.
In a now deleted essay, preserved by Web Archive, Stetzer chided, “If you want to believe that some secret lab created this as a biological weapon, and now everyone is covering that up, I can’t stop you.”
Isn’t that interesting how he deleted it? What a fraud. He should at least admit his mistake. It was obvious from day 1 that the most likely scenario was that it came from a virus lab in the town where the virus originated. Even if it had come from other sources, it was always wrong to mock and silence those who posited otherwise. Yet these wolves and demons want to be arbiters of misinformation?!
Only two days before Stetzer published his essay, Collins participated in a livestream event, co-hosted by CT. The outlet introduced him as a “follower of Jesus, who affirms the sanctity of human life” despite the fact that Collins is on record stating he does not definitively believe, as most pro-lifers do, that life begins at conception, and his tenure at NIH has been marked by extreme anti-life, pro-LGBT policies.
So Mr. Science Person doesn’t know what any mainstream embryology book (and common sense) will tell you, namely that a new human being is created at fertilization. What else would two human beings create? And he is pro-perversion and pro-Darwinian evolution. Don’t believe him or anyone who recommends him.
Shame on all those phonies putting this “Christian” out there as their trump-card scientist.
Transanity, brought to you by the Left — including the “Christian” Left — and exposed by sane people.
They got me at 42. Your child doesn’t stand a chance.
Another divorce (Lysa TerKeurst of Proverbs 31 ministries) part 2 redux — Even after this latest round of news, she still has 16 speaking dates over the next few months. I have no idea what her schedule was before. But she was a very attentive wife, I’m sure . . . because Proverbs 31 says you need a full travel and speaking schedule to be a great wife . . .
She was never called to ministry, but even if she had been, she needs to give it up now. A guy in her situation would certainly be disqualified. Do people who took her advice get refunds now?
People think they want fame, but it rarely benefits them in the long run (Homer Simpson: “Let’s just say that fame was like a drug. But what was even more like a drug was the drugs.”). And having a famous wife would make the odds of a successful marriage extremely low.
Pro tip: A spouse’s sins and inattention don’t provide an excuse to commit adultery, but they definitely increase the odds.
“Christian” Leftists sometimes call themselves “red-letter Christians,” meaning that they allegedly focus on the direct sayings of Jesus. But they out themselves in multiple ways when they do that.
First, the second set of “red letters” in the Bible tell you to live by all of the letters.
Matthew 4:4 But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
Second, they deny the inspiration of scripture. All the original writings turned out exactly as the Holy Spirit and the human writers wanted them to, and they have been translated to us in a reliable fashion.
Third, they don’t understand and obey the red letters. Jesus quoted the Old Testament extensively and referred to its most controversial elements without apology: Sodom & Gomorrah, Adam and Eve, Noah, Jonah, etc. The “Christian” Left hates and denies all those things.
Fourth, Jesus didn’t hand-write the Gospels. The authors had some eyewitness accounts and some reliable second-hand accounts, just like the epistles.
“It’s such a fine line between stupid and clever.” I spend a lot of time straddling this line.
No exaggeration: I talked to a guy whose 11 yr. old nephew was beaten up so badly at school that he got a concussion. The bullies even put the video on social media. But the school did nothing. The guy was formerly somewhat liberal, but the scales have come off of his eyes. His own kid had issues with the school as well, so he got him out and has him in private school now.
I Criticized BLM. Then I Was Fired. — It wasn’t just that he criticized them, but that he criticized them with irrefutable facts and logic. And the guy was a Leftist working at Reuters who was just trying to do actual journalism. Do not trust anything from the Leftist media. they work to suppress the truth 24×7.
There are times to defend yourself, but plenty of times to just let things roll off of you.
Proverbs 26:2 Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest.
Our justice system is completely out of control.
Democrats: The Baby-Killer Party — I’m glad they exposed themselves with this. Repeat it every chance you get. What a self-own. Abortion to the child’s first breath without anesthetic? Check. No parental notification if the school takes your child to have your grandchild killed in a risky and traumatizing procedure? Check. No conscience exceptions, so pro-lifers can be forced to participate in child murder unless they want to get fired? Check.
And these barbaric Molech-worshiping ghouls insist that we are the extremists. And remember that the “Christian” Left supports them 100%.
NBA virtue signaled over North Carolina requiring you to use the right bathroom for your gender. They are beyond woke – except when it comes to China or the Middle East. Woke TV announcers did an extended moment of silence over the Florida anti-grooming bill but are silent on this. Such rank hypocrisy.
We need more patriarchy. Stat.
One more wildly evil impact of all these groomers. They’ll try to blame it on other things, but with all the celebration for LGBTQX people they can’t claim that it is because of a lack of acceptance.
Do not kid yourself. No matter what your school board does, the Pervert Lobby is after your kids. Get your kids out of government schools.
Whatever this passage means, it can’t be about losing your salvation. Otherwise, it would mean that once you lose it you could never get it back. I’m on the “once really saved, always really saved” side and the “if you aren’t a Christian now then you never were” (1 John 2:19) side. I add “really” as a deliberate redundancy to emphasize that the conversion must be authentic. You can say a few words and hang out in church and not be truly saved (I know, because I used to be in that category).
So if the “you can lose your salvation” camp wants to cite Hebrews 6 (an admittedly challenging passage to exegete) then they should be consistent and say that once it is lost, it is gone for good.
Hebrews 6:4–6 For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt.
5 Statistics Reveal Christianity Is Good for the World — Yeah, I know it is the Gospel Coalition, but it makes some good points. Compared to non-Christians, we adopt more children, have better sex lives, are more generous, have better mental health, and treat women better.
This is how ridiculous the “Christian” Left is. Their followers get what they want: A false god to prop up their sinful desires.
The Goodness of Their Hearts — Don’t be naive. Paying for your employees’ abortions is a cynical and evil form of corporate greed disguised as benevolence. They did the quick math and realized that abortions are less expensive than deliveries and maternity leave. But they are participating in the destruction of an innocent human being. But the Molech-worshipers are so eager to kill their children that they are blinded to it.
A number of major companies have announced that they will pay employees’ travel expenses if they want to travel to another state for an abortion. . . .Usually when companies adopt woke political positions, they are either engaging in pointless “virtue (usually vice) signaling” or knuckling under to youthful terrorists among their employees. But that may not be the case here. Paying for an abortion plus travel expenses is vastly cheaper than paying for the obstetric care and hospitalization associated with a birth, plus months of maternity leave. Viewed in strictly financial terms, helping to prevent employees from having children is good for the bottom line. But don’t expect liberals to take note of a rare instance of actual corporate greed.
Pro-abortion: Abortions are completely moral acts! They are not sinful.
Anti-abortion: Do you realize that you are telling everyone – including friends, any children and grandchildren you have, and yourself — that it would have been completely moral to crush and dismember them in the womb rather than letting them live? I pity the children and grandchildren who hear that message!
Seriously, picture someone saying this: “It is very important to Grandma that I fight for the right for mothers to be able to have their children killed. You are safe now, but I wanted your mother to have the right to kill you up to your first breath.”
Yes, I know no one would say it like that, but that’s exactly what their message is.
Even in college, I didn’t like bars. Noise, smoke, drunk people, crowds, high prices . . . what’s not to like?
Be prepared, people! Abortion is going to be a hot topic for some time, and you’ll constantly come across fallacious pro-abortion sound bites. Bookmark this if you like, as I’ll be updating it as I think of other examples. I offered multiple answers to some objections. Let me know in the comments section if you think of others.
I’m using anti-abortion instead of pro-life for a reason. It cuts down on one of the baseless pro-abortion attack lines. Sure, call me anti-abortion, because I am anti-child murder. And I’m using pro-abortion because anyone who demands that others pay for abortions to the child’s first breath is more than just pro-choice. You can soften the snarkiness as you see fit, especially in one-on-one encounters, but sometimes evil ideas deserve mockery.
Whenever you can, “trot out the toddler” and show how most pro-abortion arguments fail when applied to toddlers. Then you point out how the real issue is that the unborn are human beings from fertilization, so the pro-abortion reasoning fails for them as well.
I use some terms interchangeably, such as kill/murder and abortion/crushing and dismembering. They may sound extreme, but so is killing children. Sometimes people need to be confronted with what they are actually supporting.
One example of the stupidity I saw on social media on “No-mo-Roe” day (which should now be a national holiday). Of course, it got lots of cheers from fellow Molech-worshiping ghouls who don’t know how to think critically.
This marks the first time in history that the United States Supreme Court has taken away a constitutional right…
No, the Supreme Court rightly ruled that there had never been a Constitutional right to kill your child.
What happened to the separation of church and state?
This had nothing to do with church and state. It was about what the Constitution says. Try reading it. That said, God is against killing your children. You’ll answer to him for that.
What happened to my rights over my body and what I choose to do with it?
There are countless laws telling you what you can’t do with your body, such as killing your children outside the womb. Now some states will have laws making it illegal to kill them inside the womb. Do what you like, just don’t kill your children. Or live in one of the many states where you can still legally kill your children.
What next? We can no longer purchase contraceptives?
Hold on, drama queen. There is nothing about that in the Constitution, either. It should be left to the states, which are unlikely to ban them.
What about the right to love who you love?
The Constitution has never said anything about who you can love. Oh, you mean whether oxymoronic “same-sex marriage” is enshrined in the Constitution? Yeah, hopefully, they’ll get rid of that silly ruling as well.
What about trans rights?
“Trans” rights? Sure, I suppose you have the legal right to be delusional and mock God’s created order. I’ll defend those rights. But you don’t have the right to push your perversions on children or to force me to lie and say that people can change genders. I won’t violate my conscience that way. And no, the Constitution said nothing about “trans” rights.
Oh, but you can still own an assault rifle and that’s all that matter right???
Yes, because that is in the Constitution! Thanks for noticing.
This ruling won’t end abortions, only the safe ones.
They are never safe for the child you murder. And we are under no obligation to make it safer for you to murder your child. And make no mistake: It will reduce abortions. Every life counts.
This ruling is not a ban on abortions, it’s a ban on women.
LOL that’s just stupid. Yeah, we’ve now banned women. They disappeared.
Sorry but we aren’t going to revert back to being worth less than a man.
So if you can’t legally kill your children you are less than a man? That’s some pretty low self-esteem you have there.
It’s time to fight back.
Too bad the 50,000,000 children you murdered couldn’t fight back.
Pro-abortion: If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament! (Also: “If men could get pregnant, abortions would be available at Jiffy Lube!”)
Anti-abortion: If men could get pregnant, it would be wrong for them to murder their unborn children.
P.S. You seem transphobic, but thanks for conceding that men and women are different and that men can’t have babies.
PA: If you don’t have a uterus, you don’t get to speak on this!
AA: We can speak any time we like when people are being killed without adequate justification.
So on your logic, we should overturn Roe v Wade because it was decided by men?
Over 50% of abortions kill females, and nearly all gender-selection abortions kill females for the sole reason that they are female. Don’t their uteruses get a say?
Women are more pro-life than men. Go figure.
P.S. You seem transphobic, but thanks for conceding that men and women are different and that men can’t have babies.
PA: But the children might be poor!
AA: Using that logic, you should kill your toddlers or other children who are poor. Also, compared to the U.S. definition of poor, 99% of the people who have ever lived anywhere should have been aborted.
PA: If you don’t like abortions, don’t have one!
AA: If you don’t want people to kill their toddlers, don’t kill your toddler.
Can you see how childish your argument sounds when you ignore the child murdered in the abortion?
PA: Abortions are completely moral acts! They are not sinful.
AA: Do you realize that you are telling everyone – including friends, any children and grandchildren you have, and yourself — that it would have been completely moral to crush and dismember them in the womb rather than letting them live? I pity the children and grandchildren who hear that message!
Seriously, picture someone saying this: “It is very important to Grandma that I fight for the right for mothers to be able to have their children killed. You are safe now, but I wanted your mother to have the right to kill you up to your first breath.”
Yes, I know no one would say it like that, but that’s exactly what their message is.
PA: Girls born today will have fewer rights than those born 50 years ago!
AA: But they will be born.
PA: But the child could impact the woman’s career/love life/education/etc.
AA: On that logic, she could kill her toddler with impunity. None of those reasons are adequate justification to kill her child.
PA: But the children might turn out poor or become criminals.
AA: You could say the same thing about many toddlers in this country, but that wouldn’t justify crushing and dismembering them.
PA: She’s not ready to be a mother.
AA: She’s already a mother; the question is whether she’ll have her child murdered.
PA: Pro-lifers don’t care about children after they are born!
AA: We are remarkably consistent: We oppose murdering children regardless of their location – inside or outside the womb.
PA: A woman has a right to choose!
AA: If you are talking about school choice, or whether to own a gun, homeschool your children, take vaccines, get married, etc. then I’m with you. But you need to complete the sentence: You think women have a right to choose to murder their unborn children. There is a reason you don’t finish the thought.
Child: 4. a human fetus: My sister miscarried with her first child at seven months. [Although in the pro-abortion case, their definition could have said, “My sister killed her first child at seven months.”]
And Joe Biden agrees with me! Joe Biden says abortion would “abort a child.”
I’ve been encouraging people to use “child” instead of “baby” because the former is more precise.
Definitely not. An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile so that when you want a child you cannot have it. Birth control merely postpones the meaning of life.
Every related scientific discovery made since then, plus tools like ultrasounds, serve to further that point.
I concede that technically it is a fetus and not a baby, even though that’s what Planned Parenthood called it. I don’t correct people who euphemistically call them babies. But they are human beings at a particular stage of development who have a right to life.
PA: We don’t know when life begins!
AA: Then you should err on the side of life.
Oh, and we do know when life begins: Fertilization. It is basic science and common sense.
PA and some AA people: Women are the victims of abortion, too!
AA: No. If you take out a contract to have someone killed, under no circumstance are you the victim. You may be in a very complex situation and might be getting pressured to do something wrong, but I won’t infantilize you and say you didn’t know what you were doing. If you were killing your toddler for the same reasons no one would consider you a victim.
Many pro-lifers either fear women or are condescending to them by pretending they don’t know what abortion does. The writers of the Hippocratic Oath — which was written well over 2,000 years ago — knew exactly what abortion did, and as late as the 1960s Planned Parenthood said that abortion kills “babies.” And feminists encourage people to “shout their abortions” out of pride for what they have done.
PA: What about victims of rape and incest?
AA: Are you saying that you’d support making all abortions illegal except in the cases of rape, incest, and the life of the mother? If not, then why are you exploiting rape victims to make your case for unrestricted abortions?
Feel free to punish the rapist, but don’t kill the innocent child. Using your logic, a woman could kill her toddler conceived in rape if it reminded her of the trauma.
Also, abortion is often used to hide the vile crimes of rape, incest, and sex trafficking. What better way to destroy the evidence? Yet Planned Parenthood, which pretends to care for women, has been caught hiding these crimes countless times.
PA: You just want to take us back to the bad old days!
AA: Even the “restrictive” laws of states like Mississippi are more liberal than any European nation. Only North Korea and China have abortion laws as barbaric as those in the U.S. When Europeans think your abortions laws are over the top, you might want to lay off the child-killing just a bit.
But yes, we want to go back to the days when it was illegal to murder your children in the womb.
PA: You are just forcing your religious views on us!
AA: The non-religious Hippocratic Oath, written hundreds of years B.C., was explicitly anti-abortion.
If you saw a toddler being murdered, would you be wrongly “forcing your views” by intervening?
Are the pro-abortion “Christian” Leftists “forcing their religious views” on others when they lobby for abortion to the child’s first breath? If not, then stop using that fallacious argument inconsistently.
I can argue against child murder all day long without referencing the Bible, but I’ll be glad to tell you about how Jesus can forgive all of your sins if you’d like.
PA: You are anti-science!
AA: Science and common sense completely support our foundational premise that a new human being is created at fertilization. Go check out any mainstream secular embryology textbook. What else would two human beings create?
I’m too pro-science to be pro-abortion.
PA: Why do you oppose reproductive healthcare for women?
AA: Abortion kills children who have already been reproduced. Otherwise, there would be nothing to kill. “Reproductive health” is a deadly and illogical euphemism. You should stop using it.
PA: You are anti-women!
AA: More than half of abortions kill females. Nearly all gender-selection abortions kill female children for the sole reason that they are female. Seems misogynistic to me. Our policies would save their lives.
PA: You are anti-choice!
AA: Why, yes, I am anti-choice to crush and dismember innocent human beings. Thanks for noticing.
PA: Women will still have just as many abortions. You’ll just be forcing them to have dangerous illegal “back-alley” abortions.
AA: Cold, hard truth: Society has no obligation to make it easier for you to kill your children, regardless of their location.
Are you conceding that if you ban guns people will still get them illegally?
Sadly, even if Roe v Wade is overturned, you’ll still be able to legally have your child murdered in many states. California is already planning on lots of “abortion tourism.” Now that’s Satanic.
Abortions skyrocketed after Roe v Wade, and Leftists concede that outlawing abortion would “decimate” hook-up culture. Laws greatly influence behavior. Just because laws against stealing don’t stop all stealing, it doesn’t mean we don’t keep the laws on the books. It is the same logic for child murder.
The statistics showing women dying of abortions were wildly overstated pre-Roe v Wade, and even those were typically due to a lack of antibiotics.
Pro-abortion groups aggressively fight safety standards, and pressure law enforcement to ignore the ones in place. See Kermit Gosnell.
PA: That’s so mean to call these women murderers! And it is inaccurate because abortions are currently legal.
AA: As Abraham Lincoln noted, even if you call a dog’s tail a leg, it still has just four legs. Calling something the wrong name doesn’t change reality. In God’s eyes, taking human life without adequate justification is murder.
But there is good news! Abortion is forgivable if only people will repent and trust in Jesus.
PA: Opposing abortion is racist!
AA: Abortion kills blacks at a rate over three times that of whites. If that isn’t an example of “systemic racism,” then nothing is. And that rate isn’t an accident. Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was an extreme racist. With our policies, the percentage of black people in the country would be higher. How is that racist? And most abortionists have traditionally been white males getting rich by killing black children.
Bonus answer: Pregnancy resource centers are funded and staffed with mostly whites and they serve mostly non-whites. How is that racist? Same thing for prison ministries.
PA: Women have bodily autonomy! My body, my choice!
AA: That right ends when it comes to destroying the body of another human – especially when it is your child. You have a wildly different obligation towards your own child versus a stranger.
Examples such as the “violin argument,” forced blood or organ donations, etc. are unnatural uses of your body, whereas a uterus is designed explicitly to nurture an unborn child.
Ninety-nine percent of all abortions in the U.S. are performed on women who chose to have sexual intercourse.
Abortion is not just letting an innocent person die, or taking them off of life support. Abortion is an active, violent form of killing.
P.S. You said that about vaccine and mask mandates as well, right? I’m sure you didn’t cheer when people got fired for being unwilling to take the vaccine or when schoolchildren were forced to be masked.
PA: It is between a woman and her doctor!
AA: A woman and her doctor can’t kill a toddler for the reasons given for abortion. So the question is, what is the unborn? Factually speaking, they are human beings. I don’t care if Dr. Mengele is on board or not, you shouldn’t kill the child.
PA: Keep the government out of our bedrooms!
AA: One role of government is to address the wrongful taking of human lives, regardless of location. And most children are killed at abortion clinics, not in bedrooms.
PA: Pro-lifers show those awful pictures of abortions. That is wrong!
AA: What could be more relevant to a debate than images of the procedure in question?
Is it OK to kill unborn humans but wrong to show pictures of the practice?
Which is worse, letting children see those pictures or letting them be in those pictures?
PA: Pro-lifers are extremists!
AA: Killing your own children up to their first breath and without anesthetic, and wanting others to be forced to pay for it, seems extreme to me.
And who are the real extremists? The abortion debate seems to be a 50/50 split until you ask more specific questions. Then the Leftist view becomes the extreme one.
Pro-choice views (Gallup, 2011)
Make abortion illegal in the 3rd trimester – 79%
Make abortion illegal in the 2nd trimester – 52%
Ban “partial-birth abortion” – 63%
Require parental consent for minors – 60%
Require 24 waiting period – 60%
PA: But Jesus said nothing about abortion (or LGBTQX, etc.)!
AA: Logic of those who use this argument: Whatever Jesus did not specifically condemn in the Bible is morally permissible. In the “red letters” (direct quotes of Jesus) He did not specifically condemn abortion. Conclusion: Therefore, abortion is morally permissible.
But the “red letters” also didn’t specifically mention slavery, drunk driving, child sacrifice, gay-bashing, and many other wrongs.
The “red letters” did call murder a sin, and when the Israelites sacrificed their children to Molech and others, God denounced it in the strongest possible terms.
Jesus is divine and agrees with the entire Bible (Matthew 4:4 and more).
In Luke 1, which many people hear every Christmas, 2nd trimester John the Baptist reacted to 1st trimester Jesus. They were both persons in the womb.
The Israelites viewed children as a blessing and abortion wasn’t a major issue in 1st century Palestine.
PA: But your God performs the most abortions! [i.e., miscarriages]
AA: Dying early doesn’t make you non-human. Abortions aren’t miscarriages. Can they see the difference between these?
Human outside (or inside) the womb dies of natural causes
Human outside (or inside) the womb killed by a third party
In other words, grandma dying of natural causes is different than grandma being bludgeoned to death.
PA: The book of Numbers shows that God is pro-abortion.
AA: What verse in Numbers 5 says the woman is pregnant? What verse says she has a miscarriage? (The NIV has a mistranslation of the original text, but other, more accurate versions make it clear). Even if she had a miscarriage as a punishment for adultery, how would that mean that God is OK with abortion at any stage for any reason? More here.
PA: Exodus 21 supports abortion because it says that a miscarriage is less valuable than a woman’s life.
AA: Here’s the passage in question:
When men strive together and hit a pregnant woman, so that her children come out, but there is no harm, the one who hit her shall surely be fined, as the woman’s husband shall impose on him, and he shall pay as the judges determine. But if there is harm, then you shall pay life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe. (Exodus 21:22–25, ESV)
The key word of the passage is sometimes not translated well and says “miscarriage” instead of “children come out.” If you study the original Hebrew it becomes very clear that Moses did not mean that if the child is killed that the penalty is less severe.
More here, with a listing of all the errors that pro-aborts make with this passage.
PA: These abortive women have terrible situations!
AA: That may be the case, but don’t confuse psychological complexity with moral complexity. Their personal issues may be complex, but the morality is simple. You shouldn’t kill toddlers for the reasons given for abortions, so you shouldn’t kill unborn children, either.
PA: But the unborn aren’t persons yet!
AA: That is an artificial and false distinction. Using that logic, you could kill infants as well. The size, level of development, environment, and dependency of human beings don’t dictate whether you can kill them.
Whether they have consciousness is irrelevant. Neither do people who are asleep or in comas. To legally remove someone from life support who is not conscious (abortion fails on both counts):
You need to demonstrate that you are acting in that person’s best interests, as they would so act if they were conscious
That there is little or no hope of recovery.
PA: Christians are just repressed sexually, hate women, are greedy, are insane, etc.
AA: Compared to non-Christians, we adopt more children, have better sex lives, are more generous, have better mental health, and treat women better. Oh, and we have been completely forgiven and will spend eternity in Heaven with God. Please seek Jesus for yourself while there is still time! More at 5 Statistics Reveal Christianity Is Good for the World.
PA: You are just against women’s freedom!
AA: We are all for freedom to own guns, home school your children, not take vaccines, etc. If we make it illegal for them to murder their children, they are still free to destroy their lives with all the soul-destroying, disease-spreading illicit sex that they like. I advise against that behavior, but we aren’t legislating it. Just don’t complain to us when they are miserable and unmarriageable cat ladies.
Side question for the PAs: Is Islam correct about women? Asking for a friend.
PA: Abortion is health care!
AA: No, healthcare is when you don’t crush and dismember one of the patients.
PA: It is better to destroy one life than three! [i.e., abortion will destroy the life of the child, but letting her live will destroy the lives of her and the parents]
AA: You’ve used a different definition of destroy in those cases*. Destroying the life of the child means the literal crushing and dismembering of a human being. Destroying the life of all three implies that all of them will now have bad lives, but they will still be alive. And you falsely assume that all of their lives will be ruined**. There are countless stories of lives turning out well. Consider adoption instead of abortion.
Side note: A guy used that exact argument with me. He had pressured his daughter to kill his grandchild. It destroyed their relationship for a time and he was in deep denial over what he had done. By the grace of God, he later repented of it and restored his relationship with her.
* Logical fallacy: Equivocation
** Logical fallacy: Begging the question
PA: Adoption is hard on women.
AA: Perhaps, but at least they can always know they gave their child a better life instead of crushing and dismembering them out of selfishness.
And abortion is hard on the child getting slaughtered.
PA: If women have to bear children, then men have to take equal responsibility!
AA: Short answer: OK.
Longer answer: We already have laws on the books to address that concern. More than that, the deck is so stacked against men that paternity fraud goes unpunished and men can be liable for 18 years if they sign birth certificates for children that aren’t theirs. If you want fairness, get rid of those laws.
PA: Pro-lifers are inconsistent for opposing abortion but being pro-capital punishment!
AA: That’s a great argument, provided you can’t see the difference between a completely innocent human child and a convicted murderer who survived 10+ years of appeals.
Actually, I am OK with unrestricted access to abortions – provided that the unborn get the same 10+ years of appeals as condemned killers. I’m pretty sure that at that stage they won’t want to be crushed and dismembered. As Ronald Reagan said, all the people who support abortion have already been born.
P.S. If you will agree to ban abortions then I’ll agree to ban capital punishment. Deal? Yeah, I didn’t think you’d agree to that.
PA: You are anti-choice!
AA: You got to make your choices: to meet men, to have sex, not to use birth control, and to get pregnant. You got to make all kinds of choices. No, what you’re complaining about is that now you have to live with the consequences of your choices: which you’ll have to do even if you do murder the life that now grows in you.
AA: You got to make choices. The man who got you pregnant got to make choices. The life that now lives in you won’t get to make choices – but will thrive or suffer based on your choices.
PA: It is just a clump of cells! (Or blob of cells, etc.)
AA: You’re still a clump of cells — just a much bigger one. I guess your life can be taken, too! Or are you simply discriminating against people who are smaller clumps than you? Does Shaquille O’Neal have more of a right to life than the rest of us?
Here’s a version with audio and video if you prefer that. Bonus: Lots of Bible verses at the end!
The “Christian” Left is just like King Jehoiakim. They metaphorically cut out and burn most of the Bible because the god they created doesn’t like it.
Jeremiah 36:23–27 As Jehudi read three or four columns, the king would cut them off with a knife and throw them into the fire in the fire pot, until the entire scroll was consumed in the fire that was in the fire pot. Yet neither the king nor any of his servants who heard all these words was afraid, nor did they tear their garments. Even when Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah urged the king not to burn the scroll, he would not listen to them. And the king commanded Jerahmeel the king’s son and Seraiah the son of Azriel and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel to seize Baruch the secretary and Jeremiah the prophet, but the Lord hid them. Now after the king had burned the scroll with the words that Baruch wrote at Jeremiah’s dictation, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah . . .
What a transphobe! Doesn’t he know the irrational and anti-science Leftist talking points?! Time to cancel him.
If men could get pregnant, it would still be wrong to murder unborn children.
Crushing and dismembering children is what is truly extreme and controlling.
Finish the sentence: “We will fight for the right to choose to crush and dismember innocent children up to their first breath, and without anesthetic. Because compassion and tolerance!!”
Op-Ed: The Silence from Pastors Over the Death of Roe v. Wade is Stunning- Where is the Joy? — Another non-surprise. All these phonies are too busy preaching the prosperity gospel than to fight against the murder of 60,000,000 children. They are also silent on LGBTQX perversions. They don’t want anything to get in the way of their cash flow. This issue is a great litmus test to identify the phonies, such as “good Catholic” Steven Colbert, who is wetting his pants over the news (of course he had already outed himself as a wolf, despite what Tim Keller foolishly said about him).
Joel Osteen. Steven Furtick. Craig Groeschel. Mark Patterson. Andy Stanley. Louis Giglio. Ed Young Jr. Tony Evans. Priscilla Shirer. Lisa Bevere. Joyce Meyer. Rick Warren. Paul Tripp. Jentezen Franklin. Max Lucado. Victoria Osteen. Paula White. Brian Houston. Judah Smith. Levi Lusko. Greg Laurie. John Hagee. Rod Parsely . TD Jakes. Kari Jobe. Carey Nieuwhof. Robert Morris, Thabiti Anyabwile, etc.
We checked most of their Facebook and Instagram pages and did not find anything about it either. It’s all silence.
A good example of this is Thabiti. A day after the announcement, he offered a 20-tweet thread recounting his trip to hear Nikole Hannah-Jones discussing ‘The 1619 Project’ live, but has remained absolutely silent on the ruling.
This sort of makes sense. Most of them never talked about abortion ever from the pulpit, so why should we expect them to mention this gigantic step in seeing its demise? Yet when we look at how many of them had comments about other big cultural events like the death of George Floyd, it is evident where their heart lies.
Julie Roys Abuse Hypocrisy Exposed — She did a good job exposing James MacDonald. And that’s it. The rest of her work appears to be feminism-masquerading-as-Christianity-masquerading-as-journalism.
Julie Roys is hereby exposed as a hypocrite on the issue of abuse. By her own feminist standards, she exploited and groomed someone using a power dynamic. By her own standards, she is an abuser. Julie Roys represents the worst in “Christian media” because she is motivated out of a hatred towards men and the church. Hopefully this ruins causes her site to fold, but unfortunately, her cultish followers are seemingly inclined to indulge their hypocritical figure.
Is Twitter “Burning The Evidence” By Unshackling Conservative Accounts? — They need a very thorough audit. No wonder all those Twitter employees are crying. They are like the felons in the back seat of the police car boo-hooing that they are about to get punished for their misdeeds. They know they’ve been egregiously cheating for years and are about to get busted.
Follow me in the following intellectual exercise: Gender is a social construct. Period.
At the same time, it’s always good when women can break glass ceilings. We should celebrate all the firsts that we see women do because women are certainly not men. By women, of course, I mean anyone who identifies as a woman, including people we used to know as men. Sex is a socially derived category that assigns certain physical differences and then labels those differences as “male” or “female.” There are no immutable distinctions between men and women. We are all on a spectrum. We can all change.
Unless we are talking about sexual desires. . .
Definitely not racist, and you are racist for even noticing a masked black man bending down to adjust the dress of this entitled, cartoonishly evil woman.
LOL when the mirror fogged up in our hotel, I saw that someone had written: “Trump won.” Not sure how long it has been there, but I’m glad no one erased it!
This is an updated post that I did on Rachel Held Evans a few years back. Her “Christian” Left pro-abortion views are echoed by many others, so I thought this was a good time to repost this. She has since died. She was an enemy of the gospel, so I hope she repented and believed while in a coma. She had posted some ridiculous things on Twitter, which she eventually deleted. She took down her Twitter post, first claiming that she wrestles with doubts on abortion (read her Tweets below and see how “doubt-filled” she really is) and then saying she received too many threats (I read most of the comments and didn’t see one threat). But I saved her Tweets for you here.
She claimed she was misunderstood. No, Rachel, the problem is that you were completely understood.
Internet: Here’s a racist pro-abortion statement by Rachel Held Evans.
Rachel: [Deletes the context]
Also Rachel: You took it out of context!
Me: I saved the context, which makes it much worse.
False teacher Rachel Held Evans, who mocks the word of God for a living, had an Internet tantrum when she found out that Justice Kennedy was retiring. It was one fallacious pro-abortion argument after another. SJWs lie and project, and that’s what she did here, making numerous false statements and projecting her racism on others. Here are the Tweets she deleted.
Thread: I’m pro-life by conviction, though my views on the legalities of abortion are complex, ever-evolving, & detailed elsewhere.
She starts off with a big lie. It would have been a bad enough lie if she had stopped there, because her rabid support for Obama and Hillary and all things Leftist already demonstrate how pro-abortion she is. But she goes on to make her views more clear.
That said, today I’ve been wondering if most pro-lifers have considered what overturning Roe v. Wade would look like in actuality… First, it wouldn’t end abortion, which would likely remain legal in several states.
Yep, we’ve known that since 1973. That should be a consolation to the Leftists freaking out en masse yesterday who didn’t know it. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to kill your children up to their first breath and without anesthetic in most states. Because love is love, right? Pregnancy resource centers have long said that they’ll be needed even if abortion was made illegal.
Just like in the past, wealthy women would travel for abortions & poor women would resort to deadly Gosnell-style “back alley” clinics & home procedures….
Harsh truth: You are under no obligation to make it easier or safer for people to murder their children. Of course, I don’t want to see women harmed during abortions. But I really don’t want to see the children slaughtered.
And note how this self-proclaimed “pro-lifer” views abortion as a luxury that only the rich will have. She views child-killing as a necessity.
At least she acknowledged “Christian” Leftist Kermit Gosnell. No, wait, she only did so in pretending that he was a “back-alley” abortionist. Big lie. He was as mainstream as could be and was protected by politically correct state officials. They knew he ran a filthy clinic. His crimes were killing children 60 seconds after the law allowed. Fact: If he had killed them before they were out of the mother Mrs. Evans would have fully supported him.
…In addition, it’s important to understand that the abortion rate is highest in poor communities of color. The rate among black women is almost 5x that of white women and the rate among Hispanic women more than double…
That was her most laughable line. I’ve written about the disproportionate rate of minority abortions so many times that I feared I would get carpal tunnel syndrome. I usually note it as three times the rate of whites to be conservative, but she says it is five, so let’s go with that. Black children being killed at five times the rate of whites via abortion and Hispanics at twice the rate is the only demonstrable and meaningful example of “institutional racism” there is, yet it’s the one that the “woke” and “non-racist” Left — including the “Christian” Left — aggressively fight for 24×7.
These ghouls know that it kills minority children in a wildly disproportionate way, yet they want higher rates with taxpayer funding and they focus their anti-racism efforts on things like “micro-aggressions.” It is a deadly self-parody.
…(Racism, income inequality, lack of access to affordable healthcare & contraception all contribute to the disproportionate rates. Most women who get abortions are already mothers who do so because they feel they cannot afford more children)…
Note how the “pro-lifer” believes that thinking you can’t afford more children is a good reason to have them killed.
…So when I see conservatives celebrating the “millions of lives” that will be saved if Roe is overturned I wonder if they realize a significant percentage of these lives would be in poor communities of color—communities this administration has actively oppressed…
Actively oppressed? How? By giving them jobs? By increasing their wages? By giving them school choice? By reducing their taxes? By fighting for their rights to defend themselves?
Mrs. Evans, we know that we are saving minority lives. Those of us who volunteer at and financially support pregnancy centers know exactly who our clients are. We would review demographic data at board meetings! We made special attempts to reach minorities! You are the one fighting to kill these children.
“Christian” Leftists usually navel gaze and virtue signal about racial reconciliation while Christians are out doing more for race relations than they could ever dream of — just as a byproduct of spreading the Gospel. If you really want to help race relations, do pregnancy center or prison ministry, where it is mostly whites serving mostly non-whites — sharing the Gospel and serving in love. But Evans et al would rather sit behind their keyboards and call us racists.
…(If you think Donald Trump actually wants to see a population boom in poor communities of color you haven’t been paying attention! These are the people Trump describes as “infestations” & “breeders.” Just the mention of Hispanics at a rally elicited boos from his audience)…
I’m 99.99% sure that’s a lie. I’ll bet that he said illegals, not Hispanics. And it is a fact of history and basic common sense that illegals take jobs and suppress wages for low-income blacks. You know, the ones you take for granted when pushing your open borders scheme to get more votes. Side question: Why do Leftists like illegals more than black children?
…Meanwhile, congress is working to defund safety net programs that help mothers provide food, healthcare, and education to their kids.
Logical fallacy: Begging the question – that is, assuming what you should be proving. Leftist giveaways have been the catalyst for broken families and destroying the black community. The Left is responsible for separating children from parents with the easily predictable consequences of providing incentives for single motherhood. The impact to society has been terrible: Generational poverty, crime, drugs, prisons, etc.
So when pro-lifers join Trump in showing disdain or indifference to the poor, to immigrants, & to people of color, no one’s going to believe they are interested in saving anything but hypothetical babies…
Liar. Again, we know exactly who we are saving and who they are killing. It is creepy how Evans gets more and more unhinged in wanting to see dead minority children and in projecting her dislike of them onto us.
…Indeed, much of the pro-life literature depicts white, blue-eyed, motherless babies against empty, pristine backgrounds precisely because it is easier to advocate for hypothetical, idealized “babies” than actual people…
Aaaand another lie she uses to justify killing actual minority people. There are entire campaigns trying to reduce abortions in minority communities. And does she mean common literature like this? People have paid for billboards with these messages then pro-aborts protest over them. Note the white skin and blue eyes. The literature our CPC produced always reflected the demographics of our center.
…My point is: I’m not sure pro-lifers realize that overturning Roe will not create the utopia they imagine. In fact, by aligning with Trump & the GOP, they are creating conditions infinitely worse for the mothers & children who would be most affected……So instead of celebrating, I hope pro-lifers will reject Trump’s racism and partner with progressives to create a “culture of life” by addressing healthcare, income inequality, racial justice, criminal justice reform, family leave policies, etc. We can find comm ground here…
Her foundational lie: “I’ll totally oppose abortion once we achieve utopia and there is zero demand for it.” Uh, sure, so why don’t we legalize murder, theft, etc. until all the societal factors causing those things are fixed? Let’s just keep ignoring original sin!
…All your big plans for “millions of saved lives” mean nothing when you show no interest in the actual life of a mom of three, living in an abusive relationship & unable to pay the rent, who can’t miss another day of work and has just seen a positive on a pregnancy test.
Once again, pro-abort Evans tips her hand in grand fashion. If you have a challenging life, the solution is to kill your child. That’ll fix everything. Does she think that a woman should be able to kill her toddler for the same reasons? And of course, we do show interest in those women with our own time and money – though we aren’t obligated to just because we oppose child-killing.
Also, it’s great when crisis pregnancy centers give out free diapers, but please don’t cite this as holistic care for mother & child when it’s the systemic stuff that makes the difference. CPCs can’t address rising rent, unaffordable healthcare, poor family leave policies, etc.
That is one of her greatest slanders. Pregnancy centers do much more than just give out diapers — though that is more than Evans does. Remember that Evans is forever “giving” your money away like a good little “Christian” Left Marxist. And centers always share the Gospel with anyone interested, which Evans doesn’t care about.
And there is no obligation for pregnancy centers to fix every problem in society. Follow her reasoning: If pregnancy centers don’t completely fix all of your problems, they don’t have value and you need to be able to kill your child for any reason up to her first breath and without anesthetic. That’s what Evans votes for and fights for.
But most centers are funded by donors (the center where I volunteered for 12 years and was on the board for 6 years refused government assistance because it would come with strings attached) and mostly staffed by volunteers. Why don’t faux-lifers like Evans start their own pregnancy centers to do all the things they criticize the real centers for? I know why. (I admit that she couldn’t have volunteered at Care Net, because you must be an authentic pro-life Christian to do that).
Mrs. Evans boo-hoo’d after deleting her Tweets and expressed her shock that anyone would say that she supports eugenics or racism. But the Left – including the “Christian” Left – advocates for abortion for many reasons, and one of their core arguments is the “better dead than poor” motif. Their brand of eugenics is slightly softer than Margaret Sanger’s (founder of Planned Parenthood – look her up), but it is just as deadly for the children who get killed.
Being poor wouldn’t justify killing toddlers, so it also doesn’t justify killing children who haven’t had their first breath. And the pro-aborts know that abortion disproportionately kills minorities, so their actions are racist. To make things worse, most poor today live better than royalty did 200 years ago. The pro-aborts’ worldview implies that 90% of the world would be better off dead. But just listen to them tell you how Christian and kind they are.
So once again the faux-lifers out themselves with their own rhetoric. The number one priority for the Left — including the “Christian” Left — is ensuring that we continue to slaughter thousands of children per day up to their first breath and without anesthetic – and in their own words and proposals, the more minorities, the better. And they want more abortions with taxpayer funding. And they insist that their “Jesus” approves of it.
More here about how the “Christian” Left is loud and proud about justifying abortion to the child’s first breath. They are Molech-worshiping ghouls.
With Roe v Wade being back in the news, there is more talk than usual about abortion, and that will only increase from here. Are you ready to respond to people graciously when they make bad pro-abortion arguments? It is easier than you think. Don’t miss this opportunity.
The arguments are varied, but the most common ones are easy to refute. For example, they love to play on people’s emotions and pretend that we are hostile to rape victims if we don’t let them kill their children. But just turn it around on them and ask, “So are you saying that you’d support making all abortions illegal except in the cases of rape?” I guarantee you that the response will be “no.” Then you simply say, “Then why are you exploiting rape victims to make your case for unrestricted abortions, and why do you support the Democrats’ policies of increasing abortions with taxpayer funding?” it is just that easy. Bonus points for reminding them how Planned Parenthood and other abortionists protect rapists and sex traffickers.
Using the “trot out the toddler” argument from Stand to Reason is useful in refuting nearly every pro-abortion argument. When the Left — including the “Christian” Left — makes excuses for being able to murder children in the womb, just give a parallel example with a toddler in place of the unborn. Would they approve of killing toddlers to help a woman’s education, career, sexual desires, freedom, etc.? They generally would say no (although they are getting more extreme by the day!). Since the unborn are human children, they deserve the same right to life.
And when you get the inevitable “pro-lifers don’t care about children after they are born argument,” share these points.
Here’s a similar version in text form. Feel free to copy and paste any of this without attribution.
Do you have any idea how much time and money I donate to help the poor or how much I pay in taxes? [Pause] Didn’t think so. So why not stick to the topic, which is whether you should be able to crush and dismember children in the womb? The “pro-lifers don’t care about those outside the womb/haven’t adopted all the children/etc.” canard is false on many levels. 1. If people were slaughtering toddlers, the elderly or anyone else the way they do unborn children, I guarantee that we would be protesting that as well. So we are completely consistent in protecting innocent human lives regardless of location and yes, we do care for life post-birth. 2. You can speak against moral evils all day, every day without being obligated to care for all the victims for life. If mothers were killing toddlers for the same reasons they give for abortions (money, career, love life, pressure from boyfriends/parents, etc.) would you stay quiet? Would you lodge the same criticism at those who spoke against toddler-cide without adopting all the children? Hopefully not. The question is whether the unborn are human beings. They are. At least that’s what all the embryology textbooks say. Just because they are smaller, more dependent, and in a unique environment (formerly synonymous with a safe place) doesn’t mean their lives aren’t worthy of protection. The right to life is a foundational human right. 3. The premise is false. Countless pro-lifers help women and children before and after birth with their own time and money. Pregnancy Resource Centers offer an array of free services. Planned Parenthood and the like make millions via abortion. 4. Asking the government to take money by force from others to supposedly help the poor does not qualify as charity on your part. 5. Do you criticize the American Cancer Society for not working on heart disease? If not, why are you being prideful about your preferred ministry over what others feel called to? That is, if you actually do anything for others at all. Using your logic, William Wilberforce didn’t do much because he “only” cared about abolishing the slave trade (not true, of course, as he did more than that, but it shows how ridiculous the pro-abortion argument is). 6. Unless they want forced abortions, pro-choicers have the same obligations to help that they put on pro-lifers. 7. The claim that we don’t care about the children outside the womb is demonstrably false. But even if their claim was true, it seems like the greater sin would be to approve of a child being literally crushed and dismembered rather than just not personally feeding someone else’s living child. 8. Imagine saying something similar to justify keeping slavery legal: “You think slavery is wrong but won’t help them get jobs, etc.” 9. Your basic reasoning is this: “It is OK to kill the child but not to risk her being impoverished.” 10. IF you actually help them outside the womb, we could swap labels and dismiss you: “You only help them outside but let them be killed inside.” Still illogical, but that’s what you get.
Or you can use my short version: We are completely consistent on this topic, as we oppose crushing and dismembering children inside or outside the womb. If you were killing your toddlers as well, we’d also oppose that.
I like that response because it is brief and it spells out what abortion does.
This is a video where I teach about pro-life reasoning. I used to give this content to Care Net Pregnancy Center volunteers.
That’s huge news about Roe v Wade if it is true that the case will be overturned. Hopefully, they will find and jail whoever leaked the information, but it is good that it came out earlier versus later. The pro-aborts would lose their minds whenever it happened, and the farther from the elections, the better.
The Molech-worshiping ghouls are gnashing their teeth already because it may be slightly harder to kill their children in some states. They don’t realize that in most states, they’ll still be able to kill their children up to their first breath and without even giving the kids an anesthetic.
Make no mistake: While many states will still have unrestricted abortions, countless lives will be saved, and people will think differently about sex. And that matters. And yes, many organizations will offer to transport women to Leftist states to kill their children, and many companies will do the Molech-math and decide that killing children saves money compared to delivering and insuring them. But the “if legal, then moral” calculus used by many will be upended, and there will definitely be fewer children murdered overall.
And who do we have to thank? Donald Trump! Not Bush. Not all the Republican congresses we’ve had. Yet all the faux-lifers still hate Trump with the heat of a thousand suns, even though he’s been out of office for over a year. A belated thank-you to Justice Ginsburg, a true Molech-worshiping ghoul, for “retiring” when she did.
It is so creepy that Leftists teach their children that it would have been morally permissible to kill them as they were being delivered.
Even if Roe is overturned, the work is not over. We need abolitionist laws, just as with slavery. And abortion is worse than slavery.
Please pray that this is true and that the pro-life judges won’t be intimidated by the death threats and such from the loving, tolerant Left – including the “Christian” Left. And pray that this boomerangs on the Molech-worshipers politically.
Since abortion will be in the news, it is a great time to brush up on your pro-life reasoning! Use this as a time to correct people on all the fallacious sound bites used to support child murder. For starters, when they say, “A woman’s right to choose,” ask them to finish the sentence: A woman’s right to choose to kill her child.” And when they mention reproductive health, point out that every abortion kills a child who has already been reproduced. They are using anti-science arguments. Also, see Abort73.com, a terrific anti-abortion site.
Biden gets philosophical about aborting ‘a child’ — I’m glad he admitted that abortion kills children. That’s the language I always use. I know what people mean when they say “baby,” but I prefer the precision of “child.” Pro-aborts balk at that, but then I just refer them to the nice folks at Dictionary.com*. He’s wrong about the “major religions” bit, though. Even the non-religious Hippocratic Oath was explicitly anti-abortion for over 2,000 years until the pro-aborts took over the medical community a few decades ago. And Christianity has always opposed abortions until the “Christian” Left started worshiping Molech in the 70s. And you better believe that Muslims aren’t pro-aborts.
*Child: 4. a human fetus: My sister miscarried with her first child at seven months. [Though the Leftist dictionary example could be, “My sister aborted her first child at seven months”]
These white, racist Leftists are freaking out because fewer black children will be crushed and dismembered in the womb. That makes them very sad. Seems kinda racist.
The Left went back to “my body, my choice” rather quickly given their tyrannical vaccine and mask mandate rhetoric, don’t you think? Oh, and abortion still kills another human body and should be illegal.
Well, they are willing to crush and dismember their own children without anesthetic, so I wouldn’t put anything past their dark hearts. Seems like the FBI would be more interested in these threats than the parents politely protesting at school boards, but that’s just me.
