What’s wrong with this picture? Pro-life groups join pro-abortion groups to oppose the Ohio Heartbeat Bill

For the first time I can think of, pro-lifers are divided into three camps on a pro-life bill. Usually it’s just two, which is bad enough. I wrote on September 14 that both Ohio Right to Life and the Personhood people were actively opposing the Ohio Heartbeat Bill, which would ban abortion in Ohio from […]

New York Times laments “disappearing” abortion rights

A September 24 New York Times editorial entitled, “Where abortion rights are disappearing,” lamented the “spate” of new pro-life laws passed by state legislators “concocting new schemes” to make abortion go away. Yadda yadda. What interested me about the piece was a map and chart included by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. The amount of movement […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Bills to ban partial-birth abortion in Michigan will soon be signed by Governor Snyder. The most noteworthy part of this article is that the reporter actually describes partial-birth abortion. How often does that happen?

Abortion proponent “thrilled” by an abortion on “Grey’s Anatomy”

One of many problems abortion proponents have is sending mixed messages about getting one.  Whether to act glib and risk offending normal sensibilities, or to act serious and risk humanizing the baby, that is the question. Maya at Feministing took the spectator-at-the coliseum approach earlier this week, saying she was “thrilled” and found it “refreshing” […]

Lunch Break: “Were It Not For Grace”

by LauraLoo I heard this song sung by Larnelle Harris for the first time this past LORD’s day while taking a beautiful autumn walk. Praise be to the LORD Almighty, more sovereign than all my sin!

Barry Lynn: Jesus cares more about helping the poor than about abortion

Let’s get this straight. Even though abortion is not mentioned in the Bible, it is obvious to these conservatives that not only should Christians not get one; the government should bar anyone from obtaining one. However, when the deep concern for the poor is commonly located in the same sacred text, it means absolutely nothing […]

Leaders in post-abortion recovery ministry say the church remains reluctant to fully face the impact of abortion within their own congregations.

[Post-abortion counselor Kathy] Rutledge said she once gave her testimony to a group of women at a megachurch in the South and by the end, several women were “practically bawling.” Yet, when Rutledge asked about doing a follow-up, the group’s leader said, “None of my women have had an abortion… and even if they did, they don’t need to be speaking about it.”

Nancy Kruezer, who serves as Chicago Regional Coordinator for Silent No More, said some pastors express fears that if they address abortion, it will “open the floodgates,” and they will be overwhelmed by wounded people. Others object because they say the topic is too political — or that discussing abortion might actually make it more acceptable.

But, Kruezer said these fears are unfounded and that women desperately need to talk about their abortions. As a result of her abortion 22 years ago, Kruezer said she suffered overwhelming fear, anxiety, and nightmares. These problems persisted for about 15 years until Kruezer finally confessed her abortion to her small group….

“Silence is a powerful weapon of the enemy,” Kruezer said. “It’s in silence that the truth remains hidden and that lies flourish… lies that justify the killing of unborn children, lies that say abortion doesn’t hurt people.”

… Our churches need to regularly communicate that they are safe places for women [who are post-abortive]. While we cannot whitewash the sin of abortion, we also can’t ignore those who at one time have had abortions and are suffering. We must let them know that Jesus’ blood covers all sin, including theirs.
