People joke about the end of the world. I just wonder how long God can hold back while we choose to kill more and more unborn children. Honestly.
On the first day of the 111th Congress, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) sent a very clear message about what pro-lifers can expect from the next two years by introducing S. 21, “The Prevention First Act” that would direct hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to the abortion industry, a business that already receives over $286 million each year from federal taxpayers.
It should come as no surprise that Planned Parenthood, the largest supporter of unrestricted abortion, praised the bill. And why not? The abortion merchant will likely be the largest beneficiary of Reid’s abortion bailout. Among other things, the legislation would use taxpayer funds to mislead people about the potential of the “morning after pill” (known as Plan B) to act as an abortifacient.
It also encourages the use of Plan B for victims of sexual assault yet has no reporting requirement in place for young girls who may have been victims of abuse and/or rape. When you get right down to it, the bill does nothing to support parental involvement–let alone consent–for dispensing the morning after pill and other “contraception” to minors.
In addition to funding Plan B, the measure would also: subsidize birth control for college and low-income women; expand Title X, the main federal family planning program that requires abortion referrals; expand Planned Parenthood targeting of low-income women through Medicaid; target teens’ with “comprehensive” sex education; and spread emergency contraception.

I’d love to stand by and watch Harry Reid explain to God how this could possibly be a good thing.
As many in our country are approaching Christmas with the idea to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the world seems to be moving in another direction. This morning I read that Planned Parenthood of Indiana is promoting the sale of gift certificates this Holiday season.
So… in the celebration of the birth of Christ, we’re supposed to purchase gift certificates that go towards the death of unborn babies.
I freeze and try to fathom how God in heaven stands by and watches how we humans make choices so obviously evil.
With the incoming Administration and their stated beliefs that abortions should be more readily accessible and paid for by tax dollars, we can only expect the total number of abortions in America to increase.
If you’re interested, here are the facts on abortion in the United States.
I know I post a lot of negative news on here. I’m honestly trying to post less but it just seems the world around us is just so screwed up. So anyway, here’s a positive piece of news from the FRC about a former NFL player working to improve things in his hometown of Philly.
Rev. Herb Lusk is a big man with an even bigger heart. The former Philadelphia Eagle has spent his retirement from football transforming Pennsylvania-and the nation-for Christ. As pastor of Greater Exodus Baptist Church, Herb has been a tremendous friend to me and a powerful ally in the movement for faith, family, and freedom. This week, he and his People for People organization are taking that outreach to a new level by opening the Hope Center for pregnant women.
In a city where half of all black babies are aborted, Herb is praying his clinic will empower women to make positive decisions about their pregnancies. “When I began to consider that the African-American population alone has declined in the past three years across the nation, I realized that we’re not procreating our own race; and that is a direct result of abortion…”
Just minutes from the local Planned Parenthood clinic, Hope Center offers pregnant women something the abortion industry does not-the truth. With free counseling, resources, and parenting classes, the Hope Center will give women the support they need to make an informed decision. While Americans are bracing for the most pro-abortion president in history, Herb is committed to changing hearts where it matters most-at the local level. Rev. Lusk’s work is an important reminder to us all that no matter who is in the White House, the efforts to protect the unborn go on. Congratulations, Herb, for inspiring all of us to keep hope alive.
