Newborn Thrown in Dumpster Alive

Denny Burk links to a horrible story from the Daily Mail about a young girl who recently went into a Florida abortion clinic to have an abortion. The doctor who was to perform her abortion showed up late and the young girl gave birth to her daughter. At this point you would think that the story has a happy ending, because even those on the pro-abortion side don’t advocate murdering a living, fully born, umbilical-cord-cut baby. No, this is not the case.
The staff at the clinic took the living baby and threw her in a biohazard bag and tossed her in the dumpster.
I could leave it here at its worst, but if you read the story, there is a glimmer of hope. The young girl who had the abortion is now suing the clinic. Why? Because when she saw her daughter being carried away, she realised that she had a living child who deserved life. The young girl changed her mind after seeing her daughter face to face.
May this horrifying story change the minds and hearts of a nation so depraved that we let your babies die in dumpsters.
Read Denny Burk’s thoughts on it here. Especially this quote:
Finally, a word to those of you who either support abortion
rights or who are indifferent to this whole issue. If you are shocked and
appalled at how this little girl was killed, then why not be shocked and
appalled at the fact that if the doctor had arrived on time the same outrage
would have occurred? The only difference would have been that the killing would
have taken place in a different location.

Obama on Abortion

Here is Barack Obama’s track record on things related to abortion. This website is worth putting into your favourites as it will track all of Obama’s policies on this horrific subject. My fear is that all of those starry eyed Christians who voted Obama into office will be proven wrong: that abortion under the Obama empire will grow.

A Few Things…

First of all, I was saddened to see that Father Neuhaus (1936-2009) passed away. I just picked up the latest issue of First Things a few days ago and he had a good article on abortion and the 1960s in it. Now it becomes a keepsake for me. Neuhaus was an incredibly important conservative intellectual and did a lot in his life for good political causes – fighting abortion probably the most significant. He will be missed.
Second,
The Tyndale Bulletin, the journal for the Tyndale House in Cambridge, England has posted all of their issues on line stretching back to 1565. This is amazing!!!! What a fantastic journal and now at all of our fingertips. Make use of this, it contains some of the best evangelical scholarship ever written!

Ron Paul on Abortion, Markets and Power

If I could have had my way in the US elections, I would have seen Congressman Ron Paul elected as President. One of the reasons has to do with his stance on abortion. As a libertarian, he argues that abortion is not congruent with principles of freedom. In this piece, he even argues that the market suffers with legalised abortion and that there is a correlation between the pro-abortion position and the centralisation of governmental power.

Read “Abortion and the Centralization of Power” at RonPaul.com.
As a physician who has delivered over 4,000 babies I am very
disturbed by the continued efforts of those on the left to establish absolute
rights to abortion. However, even more distressing is the notion that taxpayers
should be forced to subsidize life-ending procedures such as abortion and
embryonic stem cell research.

The Albert Mohler Radio Program – Highlights

Southern Seminary’s president, Albert Mohler, has a radio program that discusses the latest news, cultural happenings and theological issues. Because the program doesn’t air in Toronto, I have to listen to it online – as a result my Mohler intake is a bit sporadic. I’ve listened to a number of shows that caught my eye recently and I thought I would higlight them with some shared thoughts:
Making Sense of Emergent Christianity – Russell Moore interviews Kevin De Young and Ted Kluck, authors of Why We’re Not Emergent. Actually, I haven’t listened to this yet (downloading it right now), but I’m expecting it to be good. I recently finished their book and thought that it was a very good analysis of the emergent church movement.
The Pro-Life Cause: Working for Reduction or Elimination? – Russell Moore interviews Tony Campolo and Robert George over the issue of reducing abortions vs. eliminating abortions. Campolo is a well-known leader of the Christian left, and George is an ethics professor at Princeton University. George articulated his position against merely reducing abortions clearly and with solid statistical facts and made Campolo look like an amateur who had no idea what he was talking about. Moore was the highlight though when he irked Campolo with a comparison between abortion and lynching in the South.
African-American Men and the Local Church – Al Mohler interviews Eric Redmond, an African-American pastor and leader. Redmond has a new book out entitled Where Are All The Brothers? that discusses the reasons why African-American churches are losing men in droves. He offers some good advice on how to get African-American men back into the church. Redmond, Thabiti Anyabwile, Anthony Carter and a number of other African-American theologians/pastors are leading the African-American church through a virtual renaissance. Ad fontes was the watch-cry of the sixteenth-century, and it is the watch-cry of these men today. The sources to return to are not only Scripture and church history, but the early days of the African-American church that was led by men like Lemuel Haynes and Jupiter Hammon. I am very excited to see the work that is going on for reformation in the African-American church.
Should We Be Patriots In The Pew? – Russell Moore interviews Stanley Hauerwas and Mark Dever who discuss the question of whether or not churches should be patriotic during the Independence Day weekend. I was somewhat surprised to hear Hauerwas and Dever in essential agreement – though Dever was much more balanced, nuanced and gospel-oriented. I’m not a huge fan of Hauerwas’ teaching, but I was surprised at how dogmatic and extreme his choice of language was. Although I take to heart what Dever advised, I was more sympathetic to Moore’s thoughts at the end of the program. Thankfully, this isn’t an issue in Canada and it likely won’t be a question that I’ll really have to wrestle through.
There are many more links I could post – I hope what I have thus said encourages you to want to listen to the radio program. The issues discussed are relevant to our society and church. Mohler (and Moore) do an excellent job at highlighting areas of concern with balance – though sometimes Moore can get a little angry – and with theological precision. I’m thankful that they archive past shows, they are a very useful resource for thinking through the issues that face us.

Black Genocide

I was perusing the Reformed Blacks of America website and came across an article by Anthony Bradley called “Abortion by Race.” Here is a staggering – and shocking – statistic:

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, more than 43
percent of African-American pregnancies end in abortion. Although
African-Americans represent only 12 percent of the American population, they
account for almost 35 percent of all abortions. In Mississippi, for example,
while African-Americans represent only 37 percent of the population, they
account for 73 percent of the state’s abortions. More than 78 percent of Planned
Parenthood’s abortion centers are in or near minority communities.

There is a link in the article to a website called Black Genocide developed by Clenard Childress Jr. that provides more information about the relationship between race, abortion, Planned Parenthood, eugenics, etc. No more does the African American community face the onslaught of death by lynching – we now have legalised abortion.
Here is a quote found on the site:
“Several years ago, when 17,000 aborted babies were found in a dumpster outside a pathology laboratory in Los, Angeles, California, some 12-15,000 were observed to be black.”
–Erma Clardy Craven (deceased)Social Worker and Civil Rights Leader

Morgantaler and the Order of Canada

Henry Morgantaler is the doctor responsible for legalising abortion in Canada. The wonderful Canadian elite now want to give him the Order of Canada. The Globe and Mail have a poll running at their website asking readers to voice their opinion, should this man receive such an honour?
I voted “no.” Go to this link to voice your thoughts.
