Go 180

Rants

This movie (below), the 180movie, will make you think. It’s done by Ray Comfort, who runs Way of the Master. We love his TV show. In the beginning, it has some disturbing images of World War II. It’s stuff we’ve seen in high school, but it’s still disturbing. But it certainly makes the point. And some of the people Ray interviews are very truthful. The video is worth watching. Some parts are rather sensational, but the point is made.

Abortion is a “hot” topic these days. I am against it abortion. It’s killing a baby. Murder is never acceptable. Some people say abortion should be allowed because society has “no right” to tell others what to do. That’s a poor excuse for murder. Society tells us what to do ALL THE TIME. To stop at the traffic lights, to not engage in prostitution, to not steal from the bank, to not kill off your grandmother or your sister.

I have thought about abortion for many, many years. Some say abortion is OK because that fetus is not “life.” They compare a scrambled egg with a fetus, but that’s a deception. For one, a chicken egg is UNFERTILIZED. A fetus is the result of fertilization. Secondly, a fetus is not a blob of tissue. By the age of SIX WEEKS, the baby already has eyes, limbs, a beating heart and measurable brain waves. Most abortions occur between the 6th and 9th weeks.

Abortion also makes me very angry. You see, abortion was made legal in my lifetime. In the first 35 years since Roe v. Wade, over 55 million of MY PEERS have been erased from the earth. These are people I would have known, laughed with, enjoyed my life with. Then the older generation has the GALL to complain that there are not enough workers in my generation to support Social Security. WHAT THE ****??? You killed them off, buddy!

If you saw the video, you saw that people are SO QUICK to judge this issue without really thinking deeply about it. Abortion is a serious issue. It is a shame that it is legal in this country. A SHAME. And don’t go giving me excuses about rape and incest and the coat hanger. I’ve heard it all. Did you know that there are almost 2 million babies aborted in this country EVERY DAY? That’s not rape and incest, people. The most likely candidate for abortions are upper-middle class girls under the age of 25 who abort because they are not married and a baby will interfere with their plans. Of course, it’s the girls who always bear the brunt of it, don’t they? Where are the men, supporting their women that they so proudly and easily knocked up?

Anyway, I’ve written countless letters to the editor, articles, debated with people…. there’s no denying that life begins at conception. That ending the innocent life — for whatever reason, supposedly good or bad — is murder. And that abortion is wrong. A society that accepts murder of a certain type of person is barbaric and is in danger of unraveling into chaos. Abortion is bad all around.

And you never hear from the baby, do you? Do you think that baby wants to be born? Sorry for being so vehement and ranting, but I’ve hashed this issue over for decades and I’m very passionate about it. The facts just don’t change. Who will stand up and defend the babies? I don’t get any personal gain from this and politically, I have some libertarian strain in me. I’m not trying to dictate people’s lives! I don’t like getting insults and threats (yes, I’ve been threatened before). But these are innocent babies we’re talking about!

Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. -Isaiah 10: 1-2
