Stop The Madness: Just Another Day At War

There are a number of items that need highlighting today, from around the world. The Apostle Paul says,
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Eph.6:12

Literally, all over the world we see the effects of the spiritual hosts of wickedness, seeking to end the lives of still more unborn human beings, because humans remind them of the very image and likeness of God. These kinds of battles rage daily.

And we hear the unending stories of ravaged women whose lives have been torn apart in a different sense than the unborn’s but in an excruciating torment over time, sometimes a lifetime.

Suzanne blogged on this story from Australia. You have to read it to appreciate what abortion can do to a woman.

"I went back to my doctor. I begged, ‘You have to help me, I want to have the child’.” But the doctor insisted abortion was the only choice. ...

Here’s a story of an ObGyn who was a former abortion doctor who now chooses life over money.

In a half an hour presentation Dr. Levatino told his story of how he went from being a pro-choice OBGYN to a pro-life activist.

Dr. Levatino, who performed abortions from the late 1970s until the early 1980s, said that the main reason doctors perform abortions is because of the amount of money in the business.

"I would make $600 an abortion, it was easy money," Levatino said. "I could perform three or four in the morning and then go play golf in the afternoon."

This report CID to probe West Bengal doctor's death seems to be getting more and more bizarre by the day. But it illustrates the tangled and violent web spun by the evil of abortion.

Initial reports said Jayanta Bag, a gynaecologist, had strangled to death his nine-year-old daughter Tiasa, and tried to kill his wife Sutapa before committing suicide by slitting his throat after he was apparently caught taking nude pictures of a woman who had come to him for abortion.

Here’s a short account of St. Gianna Beretta Molla, by blogger Catholic Fire.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with her, Gianna Beretta Molla was an Italian doctor, wife, and mother who refused to have either an abortion or hysterectomy when she was pregnant with her fourth child. Doctors had discovered in the second month of her pregnancy a fibroma tumor in her uterus. As a doctor, Gianna knew the consequences of not fully treating the fibroma. She chose the life of her child over her own.

The FRC blog reports on Caitlin Flanagan and her recent inflaming [to pro-aborts] comments: The sonogram's secret is out. A “refreshingly honest” observation.

Caitlin Flanagan is one of those talented writers for whom I imagine it is hard to find an ideological home. Feminists and liberals despise her for suggesting that feminism might not have worked out for the benefit of women. Likewise, she doesn't quite fit the conservative mold --- she is, for example, regrettably on the pro-choice side of the abortion debate.

Mark Crutcher has an insightful post on the recent sonogram legislation in South Carolina.

Jill Stanek reports on “Junk in the trunk.” It’s hard to believe this is everyday America…and everyday Canada too if someone in Canada were watching abortion mills like Angela does.

Angela said Ryan grabbed a "bloodied, brown bag" from the trunk and walked back inside the abortion mill with the driver.

"He tried to hide the bag from us so we wouldn't be able to photograph it," said Angela. "It was hard to fathom how a mother, let alone a human being, could treat another little human being as if it were trash."

Today a federal appeals court in St. Louis will hear arguments for the first time as to whether an abortion terminates a human being's life. Apparently such an argument has never been brought to a federal court before so it should be groundbreaking. In one sense I can’t imagine the court finding that an unborn is not a human being, considering verdicts from science, embryology, philosophy and theology.

This will be a test of how upside down the justice system really is.

The Genocide Awareness Project hit the University of New Hampshire this week. I reported on a recent GAP at the University of Calgary. The latest exhibition drew very strong reaction and discussion once again.

I say Good! ….if this is what it takes to get people to face up to the daily killing of innocent human beings in our nation.
UNH Students for Life President Lauren Daigle said the images are graphic in order to force a dialogue on abortion that many would rather ignore.

"This is supposed to be a marketplace of ideas, but nobody's really interested in talking about these issues," she said. "The images are shocking because abortion is shocking."

Greg Koukl of Stand to Reason has a high impact article over at that discusses the fact that "partial-birth abortion" is not really about abortion. It’s indisputably infanticide! His case is solid. As I reported before, Big Blue Wave has raised the whole issue of late term abortions in our own country of Canada.

Another story that points to the cruelty of the abortion culture. As if we needed another one.

“The heart of the abortion culture is not about the rights of the mother. It’s about making sure the baby is dead,” said Father David Mullen of Bellingham, an executive board member of Massachusetts Citizens for Life. “The idea is sick -- that doctors are supposed to kill a child in the womb and be punished if the child isn’t dead.”

Here’s one poor-choicer’s [more fitting than pro-choicer’s] journey towards truth.

It’s certainly a story of how God brings us along step by step. The critical factor is that we acknowledge the truth as God reveals it. I hope and pray that is what Miranda is doing.

Broadcaster and critic Miranda Sawyer was confident in her liberal, feminist, pro-choice views. Then she had a baby, and watched her beloved grandmother die. On a remarkable journey across America, she had to question her beliefs.

One last item…to leave on a happy note. Yet another story of the power of a sonogram, but also the power of love. Carol, a sidewalk counselor, saved a young girl from an abortion at the local abortion mill.

More stories of love here from The Anchoress.

Thank God for such stories but the whole point is: the killing has to stop.

Christians...when will your hearts be touched by the carnage?
