We have arrived at a defining moment in the pro-life battle. The gruesome reality of abortion is stripped bare and standing before the watching eyes of a horrified America. Now what?

Now that the Planned Parenthood videos have shaken pro-lifers awake and helped us shed some of our doe-eyed innocence, what can we do to get involved?

I just ran the numbers, and my family members have 207 years of combined child care experience. How many day care  centers can claim that about their staff? So, if you know anyone who needs help or advice, or maybe even an adoption, you might ask us.

Doug Wilson has some great ideas about what we can do to push our advantage now that Planned Parenthood is on the ropes. I encourage everyone to catch up on his recent posts and then implement his suggestions.

We do not yet know who the nominees for the two major political parties will be. Hillary is supposed to be a lock, although in my view there are significant signs of trouble. On the Republican side, they not only have a very deep bench, they also have a handful who ought not to have …

"I don't know why people think that Planned Parenthood harvesting human organs from aborted fetuses somehow proves that the unborn are human. As early as the 1930s, researchers began discovering human organs in countless non-human species--Jews, Poles, and the disabled to name a few examples." - Lutheran Satire

I've been wearing the Abolish Human Abortion symbol for awhile. This video explains what it means.

This Summer there will be multiple opportunities for abolitionists to agitate the public in Vancouver and Salem. So now would be a great time to look into abolitionism and consider whether you will join us.

In the light of the recent videos that reveal that PP traffics in baby parts, and the upcoming congressional hearings, is the +United Way  currently willing to discontinue funding PP? #ppsellsbabyparts

This is what it looks like when the Abolitionist Society of Vancouver goes to High Schools. Someone asked why we don't have any signs offering to help pregnant mothers. It was an oversight, but Don Cooper gave this reply:

"It's a good question..there is a stereotype of the people who oppose abortion that all we do is shout things like "Murderer! Or "You are going to Hell!". Although it is true that abortion is murder, and if we die in our sins then we stand judged for Hell, we do not proclaim only these truths. This is a stereotype that I rarely see in the places I have been with others who oppose abortion. And those that do shout or even speak in an unloving manner are usually corrected by others or people will distance themselves from them because the person will not take correction. Then all you can do is pray the person repents and stops what they are doing.

But by far the overwhelming majority of people that I am associated with in this work speak the truth in love. The images of abortion you see here are simply the truth of what the world has told these kids is not a crime or at worst is a lesser of evils. Sometimes we are criticized for not showing love because we are showing these pictures. But without them we allow these students to remain believing a lie. Many of them even in the face of these images will continue to argue that the baby is not really baby or that it is simply a clump of cells. When we tell them that they are looking at first trimester abortion pictures the years of lies have to be overcome and they are often resistant to believe it. Imagine how hard it would be to convince them of the truth of the humanity of the baby and the inhumanity of abortion without such pictures.

The weird thing is that nobody criticizes Steven Speilberg for making Schindler's List so disturbing. Nobody criticized him for making Saving Private Ryan so real. In a criminal trial, nobody cries foul when the prosecution presents pictures of the bloodied murder victim as evidence. This is common sense and when it comes to abortion we have to establish these facts that the baby is indeed a baby, abortion is indeed murder, and that your schools, Hollywood, doctors, parents, government leaders, and even your pastor have all lied to you in telling you otherwise. 

Now we combine that with the fact that some of these kids have had abortions. Some of them have had friends who have had abortions. Some of them have lost siblings because their parents have aborted their brother and sister. We know this because we talk to these kids all the time. So not only is there ignorance we are dealing with but there is denial which is more difficult to overcome.

That is the bad news that most want to reject. But for those who do see these truths, there is the Good News. And you see that one of the signs in this picture. "There is forgiveness in Christ for the sin of abortion." 

We do our best to present the full Gospel when people will let us. To be quite frank most people do not want to listen to us at all. Even on the first day of our week at a school we show up without any ugly signs. Just men, women and children offering a handout for them to take and read and talk to us if they like. Most won't take the handout and many will give us the middle finger and tell us to F*** Off. 

But when we are able to communicate the full gospel, sin, that we are all in need of a savior, that Christ is the only answer to our sin, that He loved us enough to die for us, that He said all who call upon Him will be saved, that we must repent of our sin, confess it, and follow Christ as Lord and that He will make us a new creation and give us freedom from our sin...that is what we preach. That is what our signs say.

In our handouts and on some of our signs you see the message that we are more than willing to help any parents in need of assistance to carry their baby to term and parent the child after he or she is born. We are offering this help all the time at the abortion clinics.

But here is another truth that most who have never spent time reaching out to fathers and mothers going into the abortion clinics and it is this...they don't need help they don't want help keeping their baby. They don't want help through a pregnancy, they want help out of a pregnancy. What we offer, in their mind, is hardship. Parenting a child means they have to drop out of school maybe, quit their job, alter their lifestyle, maybe their parents will get mad, they want to continue to party and live their life, "I am too young to be a mom", etc. What we offer is not what they want. What they really want is to have this done and over with over their lunch break. And that is what the abortionist offers. The abortionist offers a quick solution to their "mistake" and they can move on. And after all, abortion is legal so it can't be that bad right?

We see this all the time. Not long ago Jennifer, my wife, was able to talk to a 16 year old girl headed into our local Planned Parenthood for her abortion. For every excuse she gave we have an answer. Jennifer begged her for the life of her baby offering that we would gladly take her baby. Ultimately she said, "I don't want a baby and I would rather abort it than put it up for adoption." 

If abortion really is a lesser evil, and our culture has done a great job of promoting that lie, then why not have an abortion? This is a long answer but there is a lot more I could say I have seen and learned over the many years of doing this work. 

Your question is a good one, and perhaps in this display we should have had our signs up that offer help. But know in every place we go that it is a central part of our message in all that we say and in our literature and usually on our signs."

Something else I might mention is we have been told by the director of a local pregnancy resource center, that is very much opposed to the use of graphic imagery, that there have been many women who said they ended up in their PRC offices for assistance after seeing us holding graphic imagery of what the murder of a pre-born human looks like. It is harsh, but we need to trust that God will use the full sometimes shocking Truth of what abortion is to prick the consciences of those parents who are contemplating the murder of their child for the sake of their own selfishness.

It wasn't until I actually got out there and spoke up to love on both my pre-born and born neighbors, that I realize how easy a transition it is from exposing what child sacrifice is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

With the news that Planned Parenthood sells baby parts, now is an excellent time to petition your Congress Critters to cosponsor the Life at Conception Act.

http://www.nationalprolifealliance.com/laca_petition2.aspx?pid=sbr2c&npla=ep15
Dear Pro-life American, Tragically, over 4000 babies are aborted every day in our nation. That's over 1.6 million every year! But by passing a Life at Conception Act you and I can end abortion in America! The Supreme Court itself admitted in Roe that once Congress establishes the personhood of ...
