The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist. His second greatest trick was packaging his evil as a moral good. And so we have “a woman’s right to choose” a message of female empowerment. It’s but a cover for the brutal, systemic murder of unborn children. A process of which millions of women partake every year, many of whom genuinely believe they’re doing no wrong.
Kevin Sorbo, the actor best known from his role in “Hercules,” recently penned a column with his wife Sam, sharing witness of a pro-life story. It begins with “Kate” (not her real name), who by all modern definitions was a responsible woman on the way to success, who followed society’s sexual guidelines by using birth control. Only to find herself pregnant. Naturally, as society logically dictates, abortion was the solution to the heart-beating problem growing inside her. But since abortion isn’t as simple as a Planned Parenthood pamphlet would have her believe, she reached out for support from her friend “Mike” (not the father). Mike, though wanting to be supportive, had another solution in mind.
Mike continued, quietly and with conviction, “This child inside your womb is the greatest love story of your life, Kate. Killing it will not solve your problem; it will create an even bigger one. I understand you feel a great burden. Bringing a life into the world can be just that, but in removing that life from your body, you will be destroying an opportunity to know love like you have never imagined. So, I beg you not to do this thing. Change your point of view, instead, and see this as the greatest of love stories, one that will be yours for the rest of your life.”
Planned Parenthood and the pro-abortion left sells parenthood as nothing but a slog. A burden. Where children do nothing but crimp your adult style, and graffiti your wall with crayon stick fingers.
But there’s a flip side to the crying children you always see nagging parents at big box discount stores. The same angle Mike presented to Kate: unending, ever-enduring love.
What Mike did was not only brilliant, it was true. Mike didn’t deny Kate’s life wouldn’t be hard with a child, he just said it would be different. Filled with love like she’s never known.
Kate had the baby, and her son eventually grew up, got married, and had children of his own. Kate not only gave life to her son, her gift lit the world with even more life and love.
The Sorbos continue:
Secular humanists have made the word abortion sound like a woman’s right, synonymous with health care, female empowerment, standing for women’s issues, a choice, a solution; anything but the truth.
The truth is, however, abortion is the termination of life. It is just a euphemism for murder because the only reason to get an abortion is to avoid the potential of birth – a human birth.
Abortion is the killing of a human child. Circumstances of a pregnancy vary. But the act of terminating a pregnancy results in a dead baby. Each and every time. Leaving a gaping wound in the mother (and father’s) life forevermore.
Barely a century after our grave and costly war against slavery, against depriving some human beings of their dignity and based solely on their skin color, we codified into law the right of the citizen to kill her progeny, based solely on its size and location, while unwittingly depriving herself of love that is pure and enduring.
Pro-life advocates draw the parallel to slavery for the exact reason the Sorbos outlined: oppressing a human being simply because it’s different.
We have no hope of saving humanity, of solving cultural problems of racism, sexism, harassment or abuse if we continue to give a pass to the murder of our unborn children. Why should someone value human life when it’s permissible to snuff human life in a woman’s womb?
