Another Look at Roe v. Wade

I became a believer shortly before the historic Roe v. Wade decision that has since contributed to the death of over 59 million babies.  Who can fathom that number or the loss?

Psalms 139 invites us to celebrate the birth of every human being.  “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”  Praise God for the miracle of human life!

Recently a friend sent me an article written by  Frederica Mathewes-Green, author of Real Choices: Listening to Women; Looking for Alternatives to Abortion.  She takes a look at abortions from the woman’s point of view.  I encourage you to read this article.  It will remind us that abortion hurts not just the baby by the mother as well.

When Abortion Suddenly Stopped Making Sense

Another Look at Roe v. Wade

“I want a Lamborghini?”

Today’s blog post is an article from today’s news (July 21, 2015).  Prepare to be sickened.

“A new undercover video shows a top Planned Parenthood official discussing “less crunchy” techniques to get “whole specimens” and haggling over the price of fetus tissue sales because she wants “a Lamborghini.”

And the activist behind the sting operation says there’s much more to come.

Center for Medical Progress Project Lead David Daleiden told Fox News his group has “at least 12, really solid videos” among thousands of hours of footage.

“So, we’ll be doing this for the foreseeable future,” Daleiden said.

“The video released Tuesday morning, the second put out by CMP, features a woman identified as Dr. Mary Gatter, who was president of the Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council until 2014 and now works in a leadership and advisory capacity at the local and national level of the organization. Over drinks, Gatter and the undercover activists discuss “specimen” prices, eventually settling at $100 for “intact tissue.”

“It’s been years since I’ve talked about compensation, so let me just figure out what others are getting,” says Gatter, during a conversation alleged to have occurred on Feb. 6. “If it’s in the ballpark then that’s fine, if it’s low we can bump it up.”

Gatter then turns to the women seated to her right, pats her on the shoulder, laughs and says, “I want a Lamborghini.” Asked to repeat the statement, Gatter replies, “I said, ‘I want a Lamborghini.’”

It is against federal law to sell fetal body parts. Planned Parenthood has maintained it donates the specimens, charging only for the expenses it incurs.

“We don’t want to be in a position of being accused of selling tissue and stuff like that,” Gatter says in the video. “On the other hand, there are costs associated with the use of our space, and all that kind of stuff.”

Daleiden said Tuesday that he believed Planned Parenthood’s activities were illegal.” (Fox News 7/21/2015)

Dear Village Schools of the Bible reader, here is the question before the church of Jesus Christ. Will we respond with prayer and action to save babies?  We now have hard evidence that Planned Parenthood is selling baby organs.

I urge us to action:

(1) Call your senators and congressmen voicing your moral disgust and asking congress to de-fund Planned Parenthood.

(2) Write to our U.S. President asking to de-fund Planned Parenthood.

(3) Get involved with your school district where Planned Parenthood has unfettered access to your children.  Ask that the school administration boot Planned Parenthood out your school.

(4) Teach the beauty and wonder of human life that begins at conception.

Let me close with Psalm 139.    “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.  My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.  Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.  How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!” (Psa 139:13-17 ESV)

God’s Blessing,

Warren, executive director of Village Schools of the Bible
