"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Paul to the persecuted at Philippi (2:5-11)

Seriously?

I really ought to stop reading the news.  Or what passes for "news" in America which is mostly a mixture of gossip, opinion, and propaganda.

But this one takes the cake.

http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/gosnell-victims-article-1.1327131

The writer's general thesis is that poor unsuspecting "women of color" went to Kermit Gosnell to have their babies murdered because they just didn't have anywhere to go.  Apparently, according to this writer, Planned Parenthood is just for white women.

Nevermind that Planned Parenthood is so responsible for the systematic murder of unborn babies "of color" that they were, not too long ago, accused of racially targeting that population for eugenic reduction.

Nevermind that Planned Parenthood was founded on the mission of reducing "unwanted" populations including people "of color." 

No, these poor women had no other way to rid themselves of their babies, little burdens as the president once noted (the first president "of color."  (Um, hello, white is a color... how stupid are our euphemisms these days))  They had no options (no way to prevent pregnancy, no way to abstain from sex, no way to keep their babies, no way to adopt them out... nope, no options) but to haul their poor selves into Gosnell's house of horrors, make themselves vulnerable to any variety of infections and medical mishaps, and still come out empty, their children murdered and stored in jars like some sort of macabre trophies. 

I feel for these women, I really do.  Our culture has lied to them so that they don't realize that abortion is not an option, that all abortion is dangerous, that all abortion is death, that all abortion puts their lives at risk, their hearts at risk, and their futures at risk. 

But the answer is not more "clean" abortion, cheaper abortion, governmnent funded abortion, or easily obtained abortion.  There is no such thing as a clean abortion.  Murder is dirty business.  Gosnell just made that plain for all the world to see.

So aside from the writer linked above being full of internal contraditions on the race issue,  he is grossly deluded on the morality of abortion.  Abortion preys on the vulnerable in society, not just the unborn but their vulnerable mothers.  Gosnell was just obvious in his predatory approach...  He didn't have billions in government funds to cover his tracks, propagandize, and make things look all pretty for the public.

To a rabbit, there's no difference between a chicken hawk and an eagle.  One may look more majestic and beautiful as it swoops down on its prey, but either way, the rabbit is dinner.  Vulnerable populations and preditors never mix.  It doesn't matter how pretty and "circle of life" you paint it.

  1. Love your chicken hawk vs eagle analogy. It doesn't matter, you're still a scared bunny.
