"Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward." Psalm 127:3
As the nation prepares to honor mothers, I felt it appropriate to speak of those who believe motherhood to be the worse curse a woman could suffer. Those who attest that the gift of a child is a burden, and it is somehow more noble and righteous to protect a woman's right to self-interest than the life of the unborn child. After all, should a woman become pregnant, it is only fair that she not be "punished with a baby for that mistake", as President Obama has said.
The ultimate irony is that many - blinded by a desire to put themselves first at all costs - have been made pawns in a movement that has nothing to do with reproductive rights. Being drawn by their own selfish lusts, they actively fight for a cause which - at its heart - seeks their own destruction through ethnic cleansing, eugenics, and ultimately spiritual death.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood (the largest abortion provider), was a eugenicist who believed that abortion should be used as a means to kill off those considered undesirable. Who were the undesirables? Minorities, the disabled, the poor, the elderly, and those Sanger considered "useless, unfit, human weeds, or mentally or physically defective". She started "The Negro Project" with the intent of significantly decreasing the population of Blacks in the United States. An integral part of her plan was to engage and use "progressive Blacks" to keep this agenda hidden from the masses. Sanger states:
"Every single case of inherited defect, every malformed child, every congenitally tainted human being brought into this world is of infinite importance to that poor individual; but it is of scarcely less importance to the rest of us and to all of our children who must pay in one way or another for these biological and racial mistakes." Pivot of Civilization
"Anybody in this vast country is at perfect liberty to become a father or a mother! You may be diseased, you may be a mental defective, a moron, a pauper, a habitual criminal; you may be insane, irresponsible, with no knowledge of the laws of health, hygiene, or common decency; yet you may bring not merely one child into these United States. You are encouraged to bring a dozen…I, for one, believe that it is high time to recognize that if it is not right to import into our country individuals from whom we must later protect ourselves, it is even more imperative to protect ourselves and to protect American society today and tomorrow from the procreation of such individuals within our gates." The Need of Birth Control in America
"Organized charity is itself the symptom of a malignant social disease. Those vast complex, interrelated organizations aiming to control and to diminish the spread of misery and destitution and all the menacing evils that spring out of this sinisterly fertile soil, are the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding and is perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents and dependents. My criticism therefore, is not directed at the ‘failure’ of philanthropy, but rather at its success." The Pivot of Civilization
"Such philanthropy...encourages the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant." The Pivot of Civilization
When people stand in favor of abortion, they stand against their own survival. They lend their enthusiastic support to those who believe them (and their children) to be nothing more than "human waste". They are not defending their rights, but joining in agreement with others who declare that they are in need of extermination.
However, don't think that this is merely a political or social issue. The main driver behind support for abortion is rebellion against God. God says that children are the inheritance of the Lord. Yet the world says that children are often a mistake, a punishment, a burden. God says that He is the Creator of life, but man says he can choose to be its destroyer.
This is why Margaret Sanger, who was also an atheist, spent most of her days trying to destroy anything that even looked like God. Her career started by her founding a magazine called "The Woman Rebel" whose first edition headline featured the slogan, "No Gods, No Masters". This summed up her philosophy about God and even the women she claimed to stand for. It was the objective of this magazine to "advocate the prevention of conception".
In rejecting God, sex had to become something other than what God said; that which joins a man and woman together to become one flesh and serves to promote those made in His image throughout the Earth.. Sex has to be relegated to that which is merely a vehicle for self-satisfaction, self-gratification, and self-fulfillment.
"Through sex, mankind may attain the great spiritual illumination which will transform the world, which will light up the only path to an earthly paradise. So must we necessarily and inevitably conceive of sex-expression." Pivot of Civilization
Has this not been actualized in our own society? Has not Sanger's vision for America come true? Over 90% of all abortions performed in this country are to avoid the "punishment" from an "accidental" pregnancy. Even now our schools and governments work together to protect "the right" to partake of sex without responsibility or accountability, so that we may obtain a higher quality of life paid for by the blood sacrifice of our children.
"Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy ways. Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these." Jeremiah 2:33-34
Don't fool yourself into thinking that God doesn't care about the lives of those children who have been murdered in the womb; He does. If you have had an abortion, God is reaching out to you to repent and turn to Him. Forgiveness and healing awaits you, it is within arms reach, but you must acknowledge what you have done. Even those who have not personally had abortions stand guilty because of the deaf ear turned to the silent screams of those being killed every day.
So while many will be honoring mothers this weekend, I ask that you take a moment to consider those whose mothers have considered them expendable. The videos below feature the testimony of one such child, an abortion survivor named Gianna Jessen, whose life was saved with purpose and has a special message for those who will listen.
