A newly released video shows a pro-life activist confronting a Pastor who drove his daughter to work at a Northern California Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. Don Blythe has been involved in pro-life ministry for 32 years and regularly witnesses the Gospel outside abortion clinics. In his many years, he has also observed a disconnect in the church regarding abortion. Blythe told Saynsumthn that there are many church leaders today that are both participating in abortion as well as defending it. He personally confronted one such Pastor who drove his daughter to Planned Parenthood years ago. The interaction was captured on video and only recently released after Blythe said he was contacted by other activists who are experiencing similar interactions with church leaders.

Blythe said that he recognized the Pastor who had been an acquaintance in political issues as he drove in his car that had a Jesus bumper sticker on it, into the Planned Parenthood Mar Monte parking lot several times over the week. He originally thought the Pastor might be going to another business in the complex, but when he realized he was taking someone to Planned Parenthood, he decided to confront him.

“I am shocked. You call yourself a man of God and you drop someone off at an abortion clinic…When did the devil get a hold of you?” Blythe said to the Pastor whose identity Blythe decided not to release.

    “You are actually participating in the killing of children at a racist organization. The woman who started this organization called Black people the weeds of society.And you’re sitting here supporting an abortion clinic by bringing someone into work at the abortion clinic? Satan has a hold of you pastor. I’m so disappointed.”

The pastor retorted:

    “There is no reason to be disappointed at all. First of all that woman you are speaking is actually my daughter…I can’t control her decisions.”

Blythe reiterated his outrage using the scriptures to persuade the church leader that he was wrong.

    “Pastor, I cant believe you and I are having this conversation? You are supposed to be a man of God…The Bible says have nothing to do with darkness.”

But, the Pastor continued his defense, claiming that his 18 year-old daughter needed a ride and needed the job that he claimed had nothing to do with killing babies, “MY daughter doesn’t do anything with abortion.”

Blythe responded, “She gets paid when baby’s get killed…

The Pastor then claimed that his daughter wasn’t paid by Planned Parenthood, as if that made it somehow okay.

    “She is paid by the federal stimulus package with the summer youth job program.”

He then claimed that he had no authority to control where his daughter worked but Blythe challenged the pastor’s thought process by asking if the pastor would drive his daughter to a prostitution house if she asked him to.

I understand your argument, I’ve already had these discussions already with her. Arguing with me is not going to change anything,” the Pastor replied to Blythe.

But, Blythe continued to rebuke the “man of God.”

    “You know what you are supposed to be doing? You are supposed to say, hun I love you but you have no business working in an abortion clinic at all and I will not take you there…I am going to follow God first.

    “You have a moral code, I know you do but something has tripped you up…something has gripped you…

    “I have been doing this 25 years and I cant believe you are here. This has to be a bad dream. And you are going to go in the pulpit Sunday and preach the Word and tell people that they are to walk in righteousness even if it hurts? They’re to pick up their cross and follow Christ? You’re not picking up your cross. You’re chucking your cross in order to be here today.”

Again, this pastor defended his act by responding to Blythe that he was not “working at this place.

You are working at this place by participating in her evil deeds,” Blythe told him.

    “If she told you she just got a new job as the secretary of the KKK would you drive her to the KKK office?”

Of course not,” the Pastor replied.

You just did,” Blythe told the Pastor.

Watch the interaction below:

Blythe, who has rescued thousands of babies by being faithful outside abortion facilities said that he was once like this Pastor, not really thinking about what is taking place in abortion clinics across this nation.

    “The problem with our churches is that a lot of people in the church, including me at one time, have no idea what abortion is. When I look at this Pastor I have to say, except for the grave of God, there go I.”

Blythe said that he believed that after he rebuked this Pastor that he had a change of heart and for that reason, Blythe decided to blur his face and not mention his name. He said he has no intention of publicly humiliating this man but he wants to challenge church leaders to take the killing of the preborn seriously, as seriously as God takes it, “I wanted to expose the issues of these weak pastors,” Blythe said.

    “The reason I don’t want to show his face is because he is feeling guilt. Had he not been repentant I would have exposed this guy for the fraud that he was.

    This was an example where he wasn’t thinking it through – having a wayward daughter the last thing you want to do is enable her. As you see on the video – he seems to come around. He seems to have a repentant heart.”

Because a little old lady held a graphic abortion image…read to find out what happened

Posted in Students for Life with tags , , , , , on April 4, 2016 by saynsumthn

The debate over whether abortion victim images are effective has been going on inside the pro-life movement for years. But today, more and more proof is emerging that shows the images are having a lasting impact on society. This was never more evident than when a pro-life activist discovered why he received an invitation to speak on a college campus.

Blythe campus prolife ministry

Don Blythe refers to himself as a Christian Abolitionist, and founded At the Well Ministries. He has been involved in pro-life ministry work for over 32 years and has rescued thousands of preborn babies from the grip of death. He regularly witnesses outside abortion clinics. In addition, his Project Truth outreach has handed out tens of thousands of brochures in front of high schools. And, that campus outreach has taken his team to over a hundred colleges: from Stanford to UC Berkeley, Santa Barbara City College to Shasta College, UNLV to Oregon State to Laney College Oakland.

It was such an outreach that led Blythe to discover that something seemingly insignificant that took place years before would create a wide open door for him to testify about the truth of abortion at a Northern California campus. If the name Blythe sounds familiar it should. He is the uncle of a special young woman whose short life on this earth changed many during her service in pro-life movement. Blythe’s niece, Kortney was introduced to the reality of abortion as a young girl and dedicated her life to seeing it abolished. But, in 2011, after years speaking the truth of abortion in various ministries, Kortney was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident.

Kortney would often join her uncle during his campus outreach programs. It was during one such event that a College professor approached Kortney and asked her which one of them wanted to come and take on his sociology class. Courtney told the professor that either she or her “Uncle Don” would go and according to Blythe, she gave him her uncle’s phone number.

“Hey uncle Don here is a speaking engagement for you,” Blythe recalled her telling him.

Blythe told Saynsumthn that he vividly remembered the precise way the professor extended the invitation.

    “He said how about next Wednesday you come to the class. Don you come to the class and raise your flag and see if anyone will salute. You have an hour and a half.”

So, the Christian Abolitionist said he went home and put together a powerpoint presentation. He showed up at the class prepared to speak and show the students a video which contained images of abortion in graphic detail.

    “I tell the students ahead of time, during my presentation I won’t show you disturbing pictures of injustice. I won’t spring it on you – but at some point in my presentation I will have a 7 minute video to show. If you choose to leave or close your eyes you can do that.

    I have never seen one person close their eyes but two or three have walked out.”

According to Blythe, after he shows the video of the abortion victims, he has documented that the class generally changes their view on abortion from 80% pro-choice to about 30%. In addition, he has had students who watched the video now call abortion murder!

Blythe said that although he has asked several professors to allow him to speak to their class, no one ever responded before until this the professor stepped forward. So, when the professor invited Blythe back for the second semester, it peaked Blythe’s curiosity, prompting him to ask:

    “I appreciate you having me in the class – but what promoted you to allow me to come into your classroom?”

The professor’s response surprised even Blythe and has convinced him all the more that the use of abortion victim imagery will leave a long lasting positive impression on many people. Below is what Blythe recalled the professor telling him was his reason for the invitation:

    “Let me tell you, I think probably the reason is that when I was in elementary school, I was getting ready to go into my mom’s car after school and I saw this old woman holding a graphic picture of an abortion.

    “That had a very real influence on me, without giving away my views it had an influence to allow you to come in to give your presentation.”

So, because a little old lady stood on street corner holding a graphic image to a bunch of elementary schools students at a school in Ohio, Blythe has been enabled to share the truth with many students today. And, that was not the end of the story. According to Blythe, the professor said that after he speaks there are students that keep their babies.

Blythe recalled his words:

    “Let me tell you something Don, just between you and me, I want you to know there are a number of students who have come up and talked to me over the years after the class. Your presentation has influenced them to not have an abortion. One young lady even skipped her class to sit in on your class because she heard you were going to be speaking.”

Blythe ended his account of this story by paying honor to the old lady who once held a graphic abortion image on a sidewalk, noting that it opened up doors to share life and save babies years later. But Blythe also observed that the woman probably never knew the profound impact that she had on that once young elementary school boy who lived in Ohio at the time. And, such is the work every pro-life activist.
