Recently, #ShoutYourAbortion co-founder Amelia Bonow told a group of young kids on the HiHo Kids YouTube channel that abortions are perfectly acceptable and said, “I think it is all part of God’s plan.” Then she had the audacity to equate her abortion to, “a crappy dentist appointment or something… and I felt really just grateful that I wasn’t pregnant anymore.”
Reading the comments from this pro-abortion chick made my head explode like a scene from a “Looney Tunes” cartoon. And as a Pastor, Bonow’s flippant remarks disturb me to the core. Even more alarming is that she poured her cold-hearted, poisonous ideology into impressionable children; this act is unconscionable and depraved.
But I’m not done. There is a certain group of Clergy (I use that term loosely) who have taken it upon themselves to “bless” abortion clinics. Those belonging to the so-called Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice have been officiating this tragedy in cities like Cleveland and Columbus for about the last five years. In 2015, the Episcopal Reverend Tracey Lind spoke at a Preterm Clinic in Cleveland and prayed, “Bless this building. May its walls stand strong against the onslaught of shame thrown at it. May it be a beacon of hope for those who need its services.” Boooooommm, there goes my brain again!
I can hear some of you screaming already, “what about the safety of the mother, you blankety-bleep-bleeper (trust me, I’ve heard it all before-no respect, not even for ministers).” The inconvenient truth is that there is rarely “a need” for an abortion. Advancements in the medical field have saved countless mothers and their pre-born children. The need to terminate a pregnancy in order to save the life of the mother is now less than one percent; In these cases, the child has no chance for survival and the mother is often in a critical condition. Unfortunately, “the choice” to have an abortion for convenience sake (no credible reason) is around 92 percent.
Please let me make this clear to the people of Ladysmith, our State, (and heck) to the entire world: abortions CANNOT be blessed nor are they part of God’s plan. To make such a claim is ludicrous and immoral. And to the “clergy” who bless the butchery of the Pre-born, I’m thinking about resurrecting an archaic word and say “Anathema!” Christians are morally obligated to live pro-life, teach pro-life and vote pro-life.
I pray that God removes the blinders from the eyes of pro-abortion advocates, and may He have mercy on their souls.
