I had to run to the bathroom…I was retching…I thought I would throw up—not because of a putrid odor or some sudden onset of sickness, but because I watched a video that left me reeling.
Let me explain…
I have received a lot of mail from National Pro-Life Alliance regarding Planned Parenthood and the killing of babies and selling of their body parts. I have read the letters, signed the petitions and prayed for this wonderful land, the United States of America, which I am proud to call home.
In one of the videos I watched on www.lifenews.com/2015/07/21 the medical doctor being interviewed by undercover investigators talks about the price of babies livers while she eats her salad and drinks her wine. This is what she said, “…a lot of people want a liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they know where they are putting their forceps…So then you’re just cognizant of where you put the graspers…We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part…”
In another video the Medical Director at one of the centers speaks with undercover agents telling them that body parts are negotiable. They haggle over the price and then she says, “Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then its fine, if it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”
My response will be brief as I comment on what I heard. I invite your comments.
1. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR NATION? Are we going to sit and watch what is going on without uttering one word? No, our prayers are not enough—we have to do more.
2. WHEN DID IT BECOME OKAY TO KILL BABIES IN THE WOMB? I am sick and tired of the ranting and raving of people who argue about when the fetus becomes a person. Get with the medical and scientific facts people!
3. WHEN DID IT BECOME OKAY TO GET RICH FROM SELLING BODY PARTS? Imagine haggling over the price of body parts or making sure not to crush a part of the anatomy so as not to lose money! Are we barbaric?
4. EVER WONDERED WHAT IS NEXT? Please stop and ask yourself where this will end? What will we tolerate next?
My prayer today: God you created a perfect world and filled it with beautiful people. I am so thankful that you love your creation. My heart is saddened and so I cannot imagine how you, my loving Creator, feel about what is happening in the world you made.
I know some might laugh me to scorn for acknowledging that I believe your word that says, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”
Help me to be a voice for innocent lives in their mother’s wombs! Thank you for giving me life. Thank you for my children and grand children. I would be bereft without them.
I pray for the precious mothers, who in a moment of haste or fear or shame or anger aborted their baby and today they live with deep regret. We do not judge them. You love them. You offer forgiveness. You invite them to go to you for healing. My prayer is that they will know and sense your love today.
My deepest prayer is that you will open our eyes and help us to understand the value of human life—every cell developing in the womb, every person, no matter how imperfect they may seem in our eyes is perfect in your eyes. We are small, humble, and insignificant, but you love us all the same. Help us to grasp your love for humanity.
I am and always will be,
recklessly abandoned, ruthlessly committed and in relentless pursuit of Jesus,
