So the last week or so has been interesting to say the least in regards to the life issue. We’ve had some truth come from some unlikely places, we’ve had some more of the same when it comes to the courts and our side’s response to them, and we’ve had some just plain disgusting from not so surprising sources…oh, and some just plain silly that turned in to the ironic. Please hang with us as we connect the dots.

First, let’s talk about the truth, and the unlikely source…LeRoy Carhart, notorious and serial abortionist, had the following exchange in an interview with the BBC on July 19th


Carhart: To the fetus it makes no difference whether it’s born or not born. The baby has no input in this, as far as I’m concerned.

Hilary Andersson (BBC): But it’s interesting that you use the word baby because a lot of abortionists won’t use that. They’ll use the term fetus because they don’t want to acknowledge that there’s a life.

Carhart: I- I think that it is a baby and I tell our- I use it with the patients.

Hilary Andersson (BBC): And you don’t have a problem with killing a baby?

Carhart: (Pause) I have no problem if it’s in the mother’s uterus.

Please read that again…we’ll wait. So, can we now stop with the the lie that we aren’t talking about a baby anymore? I mean if you’ve been involved in the defense of innocent life for more than five minutes, you’ve been told that we are “talking about a fetus, not a baby! That’s just inflammatory and denies science!” I’m not really sure how many abortions Carhart has committed, but I found a bio on line that says he’s been “performing” them since 1970, so let’s just say it’s A LOT. Suffice to say the man knows that of which he speaks…in the business world they would refer to him as a SME (subject matter expert). I think we can now put that nonsense to rest once and for all. And if you can’t get enough of this charming guy, we’ll be discussing *Mr. Carhart again in a minute. I know, you can’t wait!

*side note…I refuse to call anyone that intentionally kills innocent human beings a doctor. Mr. is all of the “respect” I can muster.

The next bit of news combines a little truth and a little disappointment once again. Well, disappointment if you actually believed that those waving the pro-life banner would finally stand up to the courts…if you’ve been paying attention however, your cynical bone is fully developed and you know it’s just another day that ends in Y and “it’s the law of the land” all over again. Oh, wait…what am I talking about? Well, Missouri had passed a bushel basket of pro-life bullet points in an omnibus bill meant to get something to stick and pass the courts. The bill was scheduled to go into affect on Wednesday, August 28th making Missouri arguably one of the most pro-life states in the country.  Well, again, if you’ve been paying attention you weren’t shocked at all that right on cue Planned Parenthood and their partner in evil, the ACLU, followed their most winning strategy…they went around the people and their duly elected representative for something like the millionth time.

They filed a lawsuit and found a judge to block the implementation of the law…well, almost. Apparently, U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs didn’t get the memo or maybe didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express. He struck most of the bill down…except the prohibition of committing abortion “based solely on race, sex or a diagnosis indicating the potential for Down syndrome.” Whoa! What a radical notion! I mean this Judge Sachs must be a right-wing radical plant of some sort! Or maybe he read that line and couldn’t bring himself to say that killing a baby because it was black, a girl, or had Down Syndrome was acceptable. Either way, the twins of Baby-Killing-R-Us couldn’t take that lying down…I mean, there are babies to kill! Right? Do you think I’m kidding?

Here is the quote from Colleen McNicholas, chief medical officer for Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region in response to Judge Sachs having the audacity to let such a law stand…by the way, this is from an AP story, NOT Life Site News: “Although we are grateful today’s ruling allows us to provide care to some Missourians, we will continue to defend the truth: EVERY reason to have an abortion is a valid reason.” The only thing I added was the bold and italics. They even all-capped the word EVERY! Are you serious?! Their thirst for death will never be quenched…if this doesn’t start changing hearts and minds, we just may need to call it quits and huddle up to wait for His return, because it has to be coming soon! Final thing on this insanity…this is the PP affiliate we’re talking about here btw:

Do yourself a favor and read the actual list of the calls, not the spin from the article, and judge for yourself if they are vague on purpose or lying.

While that’s all still fresh in your mind, I need to bring the piece from the Washington Post that turned very ironic to your attention:

Yes, you read that head line correctly…feel free to dive in to the bizzare and meandering line of thinking if you want. I did, and OY! Blood boiling and headache inducing. Basically, if we are pro-life, we are racists. Never mind the facts or anything…like the eugenics foundations of the pro-abortion industry, or the fact that even though blacks are about 13% of the population, they account for 40 or so percent of all abortions in this country or the fact that about 80% of all abortion clinics are with in walking distance of traditionally minority neighborhoods. Maybe we need to break the news to our friends Star Parker, Alvetta King, Catherine Davis, Ryan Bomberger, and countless others that they are racists and white supremacists. I’ll let you look them up for the ridiculousness of the thought.

And finally, let’s wrap this up by really driving home what we are talking about here by circling back to Mr. Carhart and his brutal honesty and callousness. From one of his brochures about the services his clinics offer


“Many patients request a remembrance of their baby to take home with them.”  

“Once the process of healing has begun, you may want to consider a token of the precious time with you and your baby had together.”

Then the list of post-abortive services offered: 

  • Viewing your baby after the delivery
  • Holding your baby after the delivery   
  • Photographs of your baby
  • Cremation services referral 
  • Funeral arrangements referral  
  • Footprints   
  • Spiritual and ceremonial accommodations
  • Remembrance certificate

Ladies and Gentlemen…enough is enough! This is indefensible…and we need to make them defend their position! They are the ones denying science and even the leaders of the industry they embrace. Do we need to continue to try to “change hearts and minds”? You bet! But I will quote a couple of my pro-life heroes here. While he was speaking at an event we had in Iowa a couple of years ago my friend Jason Jones, of Movie to Movement, simply reminded us that as Christians we must remember that the law is there to teach us. And as Laura Klassen from Choice42 in Canada said recently on her social media accounts:  “Not all women are victims. I speak one on one with these women.

I offer them everything to not kill their babies, but they still do. This is why we need a law. We can’t just rely on ‘love’ alone to save lives. We also need to step up, draw a line in the sand, and say that killing babies before they’re born is not right.” Which underscores what my greatest hero in this fight says in her testimony…Jasmeen Overlin, “I had no reason to kill my baby. I had affluent parents that would have loved him and taken care of us. I was away from home fo the first time and when I found out I was pregnant, I freaked out. I wanted to believe what Planned Parenthood told me, that we were talking about a blob of tissue or clump of cells, so I did. Besides, it couldn’t be wrong, right? The government said it was OK.”  By having laws on the books preventing murder, and a society and legal system accepting abortion…you can see how it wasn’t too hard to swallow that lie 30 plus years ago and it’s still the case today.
