That scratch your head this is hard to believe moment….

There are those moments when you read something and you do a double take and then… you still cannot believe what you are reading.

Like this: Born after Roe meme from Planned Parenthood.

Hard to believe?

Born after Roe 0ff8b40970c-320wi

Born After Roe is described by Planned Parenthood as , “a reproductive health advocacy group that welcomes new and ardent supporters of Planned Parenthood into a safe space for education and conversation. Its free advocacy salons are specifically aimed at supporters in their 20s and 30s. Past salons have focused on the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby v. Burwell decision, elections, health insurance, how to talk about abortion and sexuality with family and friends, and more.”

So, let me get this right.

Planned Parenthood is concerned about the “next generation?”

Norn after roe PP 1a73d9a8d81970d

Uh….wait a minute…still scratching my head.

Born after Roe 2  0wi

Planned Parenthood KILLS the next generation- but – hey – if you happen to escape their abortion killing machine- then- they want you to join them.

Fair enough – NOT!

Christian man dating Planned Parenthood worker asks what abortion has to do with him

Posted in Black Neighborhood, Church pro-abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2015 by saynsumthn

A man outside a San Diego Planned Parenthood who said his girlfriend worked at the abortion facility was confronted because he claimed to be a Christian.

AHA PP San Diego 048692_442590003_o

He tells an activist from Abolish Human Abortion (AHA) that he works for a Christian organization called, “Uplift, for intercity youth and children…for Urban people living in faith and trust.

He even gives him a business card.

Mans GF PP Uplift

When told by AHA activist, Todd Bullis that Planned Parenthood rips the arms and legs off unborn babies and crushes their skulls he responded by asking, “What does that have to do with me?

Bullis asked the Christian man if he believed he was his brother’s keeper.

Mans GF PP

Okay, but let me ask you one question,” the man replies.

“If they are doing what you say they’re doing in here-what does that have to do with me?” the man asks Bullis.

You live in a town that sacrifices children. God says you are accountable for what happens in your town, Biblicaly,” said Bullis.

Until I witness something, until I actually see it, I can’t be compelled to do something that I don’t know if it is true or not,” the man replied.

He claims he doesn’t know what his girlfriend does at Planned Parenthood and he thinks all she does is answer the phone.

Bullis points out that she probably makes the abortion appointments.

He asks again,”Going back to what I said – what does that have to do with me?”

One thing that I know, I don’t even know what goes on in abortion clinics. Okay, but hypothetically say you’re right, that’s exactly what goes on in there. The best thing I can do is just pray about it,” the man surmises.

That’s not true,” said Bullis,”You can expose it.”

You do your part, I gotta do my part, I’ve got other things to do,” he says.

Sadly, this “see no evil” attitude is prevalent in many who claim to be Christians.

It’s not rocket science for anyone with a little heart and compassion for innocent children.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion clinic chain in the United States.

What they do is no secret.

In fact, it is written right on the website where the man’s girlfriend works:

Planned Parenthood San Diego

In 2013 Planned Parenthood boasted that they slaughtered 327,653 unborn babies through abortion nationwide.

In 2012-Planned Parenthood reported performing 327,166 abortions.

In 2011, Planned Parenthood reported performing 333,964 abortions.

24weeksenhanced-buzz-6342-1376591562-13

That San Diego Planned Parenthdood abortion clinic kills unborn babies up to 24 weeks. Or as they describe it on their website, “In-clinic abortion is offered up to 23 weeks and 6 days.”

The abortion clinic is operated by Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest.

In 2012, they performed 14,357 abortions and in 2011, 16,309 babies died.

Abortion advocates lash out on group that supports victims of rape

Posted in Abortion and rape with tags , , , , , , on May 28, 2015 by saynsumthn

There are times when good people MUST speak out and this is one of them. My friend is being attacked online by abortion advocates simply because she is willing to help support the “choice” of women and girls to NOT abort their rape conceived children.

Before you start spilling all your hate on me as well, this blog post is not about rape – it is about the hypocrisy of the left. It is about the rape victims and their right to not be made to feel like they are bad people because they did not want to abort their child.

Enter an 11 year-old pregnant rape victim.

If you call yourself pro-choice then you must believe that the “choice” whether to have an abortion or not is the pregnant girl’s alone.

Having said that, I will soon prove that, according to the advocates of abortion, if the pregnant girl happens to be an 11 year old child, somehow she should no longer be able to make the “choice” that is best for her?

CHoices for LIfe 431996546847846_707029778_n

Enter the non-profit group Choices4Life which advocates for the rape conceived and their children and for this, they are being attacked online.

Founder Juda Myers explains what motivated her to speak out, “My own mother placed me for adoption sacrificing her desires to protect me from her family who wished I was dead. Forty eight years later I found her holding a picture given to her when I was 3 months old. Overwhelmed with love and pride she was constantly affirming me and her decision to give life to me…and my two sons … and my six grandchildren!”

Myers and her organization work hard to educate the public on the fact that babies conceived in rape or incest do not deserve to be viewed as rejects of society or be targeted with death from abortion.

According to Choices4Life’s about us section on Facebook:

    We seek to change the world’s view of women and children of rape conception. The rapists alone should carry the shame. CHOICES4LIFE seeks to help women pregnant from rape with emotional as well as physical needs and to offer emotional support to children conceived in rape. We also help women who have regret aborting a rape conceived child or someone who has miscarried.

Back to that 11 year-old pregnant rape victim.

Choices4Life original

Founder, Juda Myers, posted this update of the 11 year old rape victim to her Facebook page:

    “Our 11 year old is in labor right now. She is 35 weeks and doing fantastic busting every myth out there! She is strong and holding on to her faith in the Lord.”

From reading Juda’s repeated attempts to explain what happened online, this young girl was raped by another child. She has decided that she wants her baby and has chosen life and Juda and Choices4Life are supporting her in that process.

But, we cannot say the same for the abortion radicals:

Get abortion

The haters are posting comments like this, “ Wow what mother would want her 11 yr old daughter to have a baby that was created by rape?! They should’ve got an abortion asap. I don’t really believe in abortion but if I was raped and got preg by that monsters baby I would def get an abortion. So young for her to go thru this tragedy. Wtf does god have nething to do with this. He wasn’t their when she got raped….smh..”

Another person, posting under the name Sean Roberts wrote this as he shared her page post, “I’m HIGHLY DISTURBED! LIKE PISSED OFF! Fyi this child was raped.”

Adding, “I just want to beat the living crap out of these people.”

Sean Roberts 12_8698946390633345415_n

Juda saved this screen grab below showing Sean Roberts writing what appears to be a threat, stating If I ever saw this woman I would seriously honestly go to jail for attempted murder.”

sean roberts go to jail 90203_7793236447720096544_n

Another person posted this on the Choices4Life page:

    “Please tell us what CPS has to say about you and your involvement in rape/abuse of minors.As a former SW, I will be reading your responses VERY carefully. One word out of place and/or one hint of prevarication and/or failure to respond will reveal you as a liar.”

Leslie

Another accused her of “hating children” because she and Choices4Life help victims of rape who choose to give their baby life:

Hate children

These posts on the CHoices4Life page show what pro-choice means to abortion advocates when the victim is a raped child:

Blood on hands

And there was this lovely post:

Knocked up

Not to be outdone by this pro-choice hater who wants the girl who has courageously carried her baby to term to now lose the child:

loses baby

Juda said that she gets threats and posts like this all the time for defending both victims of rape: the mother and the unborn child.

I have to say, I knew how hateful abortion advocates could be but I had no idea the vitriol that is directed at the rape conceived.

According to Juda, no one has forced this child to have the baby – she wants to have the baby. The child was impregnated by a boy her age and authorities have been alerted. Unlike, Planned Parenthood and for-profit abortion clinics which will kill the unborn baby and cover for the rapist by not reporting it to authorities, Juda is offering loving help and support to the victim.

And, for that Juda should be applauded not condemned.

Read Juda Myers’ statement on Facebook here.

UPDATE from Choices4Life:

    The 11 yr old has given birth with NO complications and with little pain. This beautifully perfect baby is the joy of the whole family. The mom will NOT have any mothering responsibilities but will be able to watch her precious baby grow. So much better than mourning the death of her baby. This mom is already healing having better things to think about now. She is being counseled by professionals on a regular basis and doing absolutely wonderfully. She maintained honor roll even though she was studying at home because bullies forced her out of public school. Sadly abuse is everywhere for these victims. CHOICES4LIFE was able to provide a complete nursery for the family as well as many other items and will continue to be available to the family at anytime!

    The 11 yr old’s advice to others like her, “Don’t listen to all those people. That baby isn’t theirs. That baby is yours!”

    I think that’s great advice at any age!

    I work with an organization that upholds the right to choose for all adolescents. Healthy Teen Network envisions a national community where all adolescents and young adults, including teen parents, are supported and empowered to lead healthy sexual, reproductive, and family lives. We believe both male and female adolescents and young adults, including teen parents, given appropriate, accurate, and evidence-based comprehensive education, are capable of and responsible for making informed decisions about sexuality, pregnancy, and parenting. Furthermore, all adolescents and young adults, including teen parents, deserve access to contraceptive services, and if pregnant, to full options counseling and services. By supporting full options counseling, Healthy Teen Network paves the way for adolescents and young adults to exercise their right to choose and thereby take charge of their lives.

    Personally, I am pro-liberty, pro-equality, and pro-justice. I believe that to give or not to give birth should be a woman’s personal, private decision. Uphold Roe, repeal Hyde, remove barriers and let us be free!

This Healthy Teen Network guide to helping teens know their so-called reproductive rights – begins:

Keep it Simple abortion guide Healthy Teen Network

    Adolescents often lack information about their rights to access birth control and STI/HIV testing, the types of health services—including reproductive health services—available to them, and the location of these services. The lesson addresses this gap by providing teens with the necessary knowledge and information to help them make informed choices about their sexual health. This information includes linking sexually active adolescents to trusted community-based providers of contraceptive and reproductive health care.

The gist of the brochure is to encourage the use of emergency contraception ( believed by many to be aborted) among teens.

Keep it Simple EC Back up method

Keep It Simple is a 45-minute lesson plan that covers:

    Minors’ right to reproductive health care;
    A short, fun film, or motion graphic, (4:30) about the services and contraceptives available at teen friendly health centers;
    Information about where teens can go to get these services and how to get in touch with folks who can help;
    A planning activity to help get the “heavy lifting” out of the way when it comes to getting started seeing a clinician.

The film called “Keep it Simple” makes sexual activity among teens look as “simple” as going to the movies.

Keep it simple easy access

The narrator claims that birth control is “easy access” because “sex is great” and “with protection you can be worry free and enjoy yourself everytime.”

Keep It Simple from CAI – Cicatelli Associates Inc. on Vimeo.

Now we know sometimes things go wrong,” the Keep it Simple film states.

The solution, “Emergency contraception or EC – you know it as the Morning After Pill.”

Woman says mother who works at abortion clinic “knows Jesus”

Posted in Abortion Worker, Church with tags , , , , , on May 26, 2015 by saynsumthn

A woman whose mom works at FPA abortion clinic told a pro-lifer that she believes that her mom knows Jesus.

The conversation shows how watered down the Gospel of Jesus Christ which commands us to “take up our cross and follow Him daily” has become to some people who do not read it in the fear of God.

In the video the driver is asked by the pro-lifer, “Do you know Jesus?

I know Jesus,” she replies.

“And, your mamma works at an abortion clinic,” she is asked.

MOther works abortion clinic knows Jesus

And here is her answer:

    You know what, its a way of living for her. But she knows Jesus too. But it’s just a way of living for her. I mean, she’s trying to make money doing it, unfortunately, you know, when you work. We’re in a sinful world. You can’t live above sin because we’re living in sin. So, not that I support whatever this place is doing, but, you know what I mean? We’re all living in sin.”

    “You know, on judgement day because no sin is greater than the other one. We God decide, you know what I mean?”

Sadly, this way of thinking is antithetical to scripture where Jesus tells us to “go and sin no more.”

He never tells us to make excuses for “living in sin” because we “live in a sinful world”

Quite the contrary, Jesus, who this woman is supposed to know, died for this world. He calls us to lay our lives down for it as well. Scripture is clear that we are in the world but “not of it.”

As for judgement day, that is a day where He will decide and a healthy Christian will seek scriptures on how that could possibly go down:

    Matthew 7:22, “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?'”And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’

The woman continues, “So, I’m sure she goes home and repents every night.”

All I have to say is that maybe her mother is “making a living” the same way the slave owners did it or the guards in the Nazi concentration camps or even the employees of Kermit Gosnell who stated over and over again that they were just doing their job.

I encourage this woman and her mother to read: Abortion just like the Nazi Holocaust is the “Sin of the Innocent Bystander”

In the words of this woman, “If you don’t know Jesus you better get to know him.” Start today by leaving this child killing center and repenting and giving your life completely to Jesus.

Please pray for this woman and her mother the abortion clinic worker that she meets the real Jesus.

Birth Control and the Church how did we get here ?

Posted in birth control, Birth Control and Eugenics, Birth Control and the Church, Church Timeline on Abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 26, 2015 by saynsumthn

A documentary film series produced in 2013, but one I have only recently viewed, maintains that the modern church’s stand in accepting birth control is contrary to centuries of early church teaching.

Kevin Peeples Birth COntrol The MOvie

Birth Control The Movie was directed by Kevin Peeples based on his own personal journey to answer the question: As a Christian, is birth control up to us?

Little did he realize that his journey coincided with producers Scott Matthew Dix and Nathan Nicholson.

The series consists of two DVD’s: BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here?, which looks into why there is no fundamental difference between the Church of Jesus Christ, and the world, on the issue of child prevention.

And Birth Control is it up to us?

Birth COntrol how did we get here is it up to us

For the purpose of this blog, I will review BIRTH CONTROL: How Did We Get Here?

The film features interviews with authors, historians, theologians, radio talk show hosts and others, such as Dr. George Grant, Dr. Allan Carlson, Geoffrey Botkin, Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr., Lila Rose, Kevin Swanson, and Julie Roys.

RC Sproul JR

The Bible says that the serpent is more subtle than any of the beasts of the field. There are a million ways in which the serpent has gotten the church to think his thoughts after him. This is one of those places where we are fed in our selfishness of viewing children as a burden. But, we’ve got a calling to make manifest the reign of Jesus over all things. And that’s why now and always we have the obligation to raise up godly seed…” says Christian minister R.C. Sproul Jr.

Experts in the film maintain that today the Christian use of birth control is based in selfishness over money, materialism and convenience, but that this attitude is a new one that has not been upheld over the centuries of Biblical teaching. Basically saying that the church abandoned it’s historical positions on family and children and the command to procreate and has used the issues of the day to approach scripture rather than using scripture to define the issues of the day.

The film begins with a verse out of Genesis to be fruitful and multiply and makes the claim that from the beginning God ordained children for marriage.

One of our weaknesses in the modern church is all we know about is the modern church,” the film begins.

It has only been in the twentieth century with the influence if evolution and eugenics that Christians have publicly embraced the lifestyle of child prevention as Biblical theology. So how did we get here?” they ask.

George Grant

What first caught my eye when I watched the trailer for the film was that author and teacher George Grant who wrote the book, “Grand Illusions: The Legacy of Planned Parenthood” was featured in the film.

Gran Illusions O1,204,203,200_

I have already done timelines for eugenics and also for how the church accepted abortion prior to it’s legalization so watching this compilation of the acceptance of birth control sparked my curiosity.

Birth control was coined by Margaret Sanger founder of Planned Parenthood the film points out but was never the mandate of God’s people who were commanded to be fruitful and multiply according to Genesis and continues into the New Testament of the Holy Bible where the family is elevated over and over again.

In historical terms, the film goes through several Biblical eras where the family or the “dominion mandate” is again upheld as commanded in Genesis.

As a student of eugenics I was aware of how the idea of limiting births came about- beginning with Thomas Malthus and leading to eugenics and abortion.

The concept of breeding the so-called superior over the inferior was imperative to Malthus as well as limiting the looming population time bomb, producers claim.

Next, the film lays out an interesting timeline of how the church went from complete opposition to contraception and the limitation of children by unnatural means to one of accepting it in just over forty years.

One of the main forces driving the decline of fertility in the United States was the rise of the industrial revolution, the timeline begins.

Malthus and Darwin

The timeline goes through the teachings of Thomas Malthus and Charles Darwin whose ideas of evolution laid a groundwork for the eugenics movement.

It then explains the Comstock laws which prohibited contraception, put in place by Anthony Comstock until they were eventually ruled unconstitutional.

Anthony COmstock

The film describes Anthony Constock as a young Christian who saw contraception as “the devil’s attack on young people. He frames contraception as one that had to be tied to abortion and pornography.”

Margaret Sanger

What makes the documentary unique is the way it details not only the views of so-called “birth control pioneer” Margaret Sanger who eventually locked into the views of eugenics but also the way it details how the church initially opposed the idea of fertility limitation before eventually accepting it.

In 1874, the average clergy person had 5.2 living children, the film points out.

Keep that stat in mind because the film will soon reveal how quickly it changes.

    In the 1880’s, Nevada dramatically weakened their marriage laws by making divorce laws easy.

Francis Galton

    Around that same time, Sir Francis Galton coins the term “eugenics.”
    In 1890, the Lutheran Church Missouri Senate pastors had 6.5 children in the US.
    In 1896, the Comstock laws were challenged, but the Supreme Court upheld.
    By 1901, there was a transition away from and agricultural based economy to a machine based one.

Lambeth Conf contraception

    1908, at the Anglican Church’s 5th Lambeth Conference Bishops earnestly called upon all Christian people to, “discountenance the use of all artificial means of restriction as demoralizing to character and hostile to national welfare.”

    But, by 1911, the birthrate of Anglican children falls 55% to only 2.3 children.

What this stat showed, according to the film, was that Bishops and clergymen were engaging in the practice of contraception, while calling it a sin at the same time.

1912 firist international congress on eugenics

By 1912, the first international congress on eugenics commences. It’s leaders strongly embraced evolution and Sanger meets eugenics influences.

Sangers the Woman Rebel

By 1914, Sanger launched the “Woman Rebel” a newsletter which promoted contraception using the slogan “no gods no masters.”

Sanger wrote, “[Our objective] is unlimited sexual gratification without the burden of unwanted children.”

Sanger most merciful thing

The film camps on Margaret Sanger for a while detailing her charges under the Comstock laws, her flight to England to avoid those charges, her various meetings with Malthusians, her introduction to eugenics and her return to the United States.

If she could argue for birth control using the so-called scientifically verifiable threat of poverty, sickness, racial tension and over-population as it’s back drop. Then, she could have a much better chance at making her case,” Grant says.

But, the film states, it was eugenics that left a lasting impression on Margaret Sanger.

Sanger, the film says, cunningly used the divisions between Protestants and Catholics at the time to convince Protestants that birth control was a Catholic issue alone.

    By 1916, Sanger illegally opened the first back ally birth control clinic which was shot down in less than two weeks.

But, all this talk of contraception was taking a toll on the church, as the film points out:

    BY 1918, just after World War 1, the birth rate of Lutheran Church Missouri Senate Pastors fell 40% to 3.7 children.
    In 1920, the Lambeth Conference gave this warning, “We utter an emphatic warning against the use of unnatural means for the avoidance of conception.”

    American Birth Control League 1921 Margaret Sanger

    But, by 1921, Margaret Sanger and her cronies lobby Anglican Bishops throughout the decade and Sanger’s American Birth Control League is formed.

Lila Rose

In starting the American Birth Control League,” Live Action founder Lila Rose says.

Margaret Sanger wanted to make birth control something that was socially acceptable. Because at he time it was seen as very taboo. It was seen as something that was antithetical to loving marriages that were open to children and very open to life. So, she wanted to popularize it especially to limit children and families that she thought shouldn’t be procreating and should be having no children or only a few,” Rose adds.

    By 1921, the second international eugenics congress was held in New York City.
    In 1923, the Lutheran Church, Missouri City’s official magazine, The Witness, accused the Birth Control Federation of America of “spattering the country with slime,” and labeled Margaret Sanger a “she devil.

    Sanger lectures KKK 1926
    In 1926, Sanger establishes the “Clinical Research Bureau,” she also meets with the Klu Klux Klan.
    By 1929, Sanger had founded the National Committee on Federal Legislation for Birth Control in an attempt to overturn restrictions on contraception under the Comstock laws.

Lambeth COnferenec 7th allows contraception

A major turning point for the church was the 1930 Lambeth conference, for the first time, Anglicans allowed the use of contraception by stating, “In those cases where there is such a clearly felt moral obligation to limit or avoid parenthood, and where there is morally sound reason for avoiding complete abstinence, other methods may be used provided that this is done in the light of the same Christian principles.”

Around this same time, the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod dropped its campaign against the BCFA. But, the film points out that while some Protestants were liberalizing the use of contraception, the Catholic Church was holding fast to its prohibition.

In 1936, the Comstock Act was struck down by a test case set up by Margaret Sanger. It held the Act could not ban shipments originating from a doctor and held a distinction between moral and immoral uses of contraception.

The next year the American Medical Society upheld the use of contraception.

Margaret Sanger Negro project

    In 1939, World War 11 begins and Sanger enacts her Negro Project.

By 1945, the public is becoming aware of the horrors of the Nazi eugenic program. Sanger has connections to some of those who helped Hitler’s regime, such as Ernst Rudin.

Margaret Sanger   birth control the movie

Despite her connections to Hitler and eugenics, Grant points out that Margaret Sanger has been reinvented as a heroine.


“No one in his right mind would want to rehabilitate the reputations of Stalin, Mussolini or Hitler,
” Grant states.

George Grant

Their barbarism, treachery, and debauchery will make their names forever live in infamy. Amazingly though, Sanger has somehow escaped this wretched fate. In spite of her crimes against humanity were no less heinous than theirs, her place in history has effectively been sanitized and sanctified. In spite of the fact that she openly identified herself in one way or the other with the intentions, theologies, and movements of the other three. Sanger’s faithful minions have managed to manufacture an independent reputation for the perpetuation of her memory,” he states.

BCFA Planned Parenthood 1942 and 1944

During the time the Nazi crimes were becoming a reality to America, Sanger’s organization was renamed, Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

If you look at Planned Parenthood’s advertisements what you quickly see is their disdain for the church and it’s teachings, for it’s traditions and it’s influence, ” Grant points out.

Over the course of the years, Planned Parenthood has specifically targeted lingering doubts about the authority of the church to speak with any sort of moral authority,” he adds.

In 1951, Sanger was able to obtain a grant from Biologist Gregory Pincus to begin hormonal contraception research. And, by 1953 she garnered the support of her wealthy friend Katherine McCormick who expanded funding by up to 5000% with clinical trials using human subjects.

Lambeth 9th COngress pill

In 1958, the 9th Lambeth congress openly accepts contraception as a “choice before God” calling it “responsible parenthood.”

National Council of Churches Pill Responsible parenthood

    In 1961, The National Council of Churches allowed birth control and even embraced abortion, emphasizing motives and essentially turning it into a “privacy matter.”

Griswold V COnneticut COmstock

In 1965, the Supreme Court declared the Comstock law totally unconstitutional. Griswold v. Connecticut pointed to emanations from the Bill of Rights which pointed to the so-called “right of privacy.”

The film claims that by the 1950’s and 60’s the evangelical church began changing the scriptures regarding the issue of birth control, claiming that the commands in Genesis were not commands.

By the middle of 1966, Margaret Sanger had died.

The timeline continues – showing examples of modern evangelicals, who the film claims compromised on the message of contraception.

Geoffry Botkin

“One of the great tragedies of the twentieth century was how willingly Christians were being pulled along and manipulated along to go along with the entire agenda that was anti-baby, anti-family, pro-contraception, pro-eugenics agenda. And, they felt almost like they had a duty to embrace it because it was “scientific” and they wanted to be modern, they wanted to be with it, they wanted to be cultural. And so in embracing it they rejected the very doctrines of Christianity,” says Geoffrey Botkin.

Grant summarizes that abortion continues in America because the church by and large still holds to the idea that contraception and unnatural family limitation is acceptable, going as far as implying it is pragmatic disobedience to God.

In the modern evangelical church there is almost unanimity against the sinfulness of abortion, ” Grant says.

George Grant

“The bottom line is that while we decry abortion, and the abortion clinic. We decry Planned Parenthood, we decry pro-abortion candidates, when our own circumstances get difficult, when our own economy seems to be constricted. When our own finances are compromised, we’re willing to act on pragmatism rather than principle time after time after time.”

“As a result, abortion in America remains at the forefront of the injustices perpetrated by all of us precisely because the church has not stood on principle and obeyed our God,” Grant concludes.

The film lays a compelling argument that contraception was never acceptable in early church teaching. It documents step by step the influence birth control gained in Protestant church teaching and beliefs.

One of the most interesting facts that I see is how the same ideas that helped usher in the concept of birth control also helped lay the framework for abortion on demand. Yet, many within the church are fine with it.

The debate over whether acceptance of birth control among married couples appears to be settled in modern Protestant church teaching or lack of it.

The question remains, is it settled in God’s mind? That is the question all Bible believing Christians must wrestle with as they seek obedience to our Lord.
