Shedding Innocent Blood. Never Good.

Big Government's Back Alley

This is a remarkable moment in American life: A man is killing actual living, gurgling, bouncing babies on an industrial scale - and it barely makes the papers. Had he plunged his scissors into the spinal cord of a Democrat politician in Arizona, then The New York Times, ABC, CBS, NBC and everyone else would be linking it to Sarah Palin's uncivil call for dramatic cuts in government spending. But "Doctor" Kermit Gosnell's mound of corpses is apparently entirely unconnected to the broader culture.

Why? Well, because it's all about a woman's "right to choose".

A government back alley, licensed and supposedly regulated, is worse than the old kind, because it implies the approval of the state, and of society. That's what Gosnell thought he had, when he murdered those babies and mutilated those teenage girls. That's what Planned Parenthood think they have, when they facilitate the sexual exploitation of Third World children. And, given the silence of the PC media, maybe they're right. Aside from the intrinsic evil of not only Gosnell but a state that knowingly colludes with him, these "little" abortion stories reveal an almost totalitarian mindset in the "pro-choice" movement's determination to brook no intrusion of reality upon the official myths. You may be one of those wealthy suburban "feminists" or "new men" indifferent to the fate of eight-pound "blobs of tissue" or 14-year old "women", but the gulf between propaganda and truth, between the fatuous feelgood bumper stickers and the rusty crochet hooks, is profound - and, in a world where statists and social engineers serve as ruthless enforcers for the prevailing ideology, its deep moral corruption will eventually swallow you, too. America should be at the very minimum deeply disquieted by these revelations. That it is not - that it is dismissed as a "little thing" - is even more disquieting
And this is a major reason for the falling of America. America can never return to former strength with this going on. Abortion is an anathema to God and being a just God, eventually justice will prevail.
Yes, they shed innocent blood, the blood of their own sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to Kena`an's false gods, polluting the land with blood.

Thus they were defiled by their deeds; they prostituted themselves by their actions.

For this Yehovah's fury blazed up against his people, and he detested his heritage.

He handed them over to the power of the nations, and those who hated them ruled over them.

Their enemies oppressed them and kept them in subjection to their power.

Psalms 106:38-42
We see that beginning to happen right now. He gives us plenty of time to repent but He must eventually end it. It is always preferable to admit and correct your own sin, and be forgiven and obtain mercy before God. This is a national sin and the punishment will be national as well.
"When you spread out your hands, I will hide my eyes from you; no matter how much you pray, I won't be listening; because your hands are covered with blood.

"Wash yourselves clean! Get your evil deeds out of my sight! Stop doing evil,

learn to do good! Seek justice, relieve the oppressed, defend orphans, plead for the widow.

"Come now," says Yehovah, "let's talk this over together. Even if your sins are like scarlet, they will be white as snow; even if they are red as crimson, they will be like wool.

If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you will be eaten by the sword"; for the mouth of Yehovah has spoken.

How the faithful city has become a whore! Once she was filled with justice, righteousness lodged in her; but now murderers!

Your silver is no longer pure, your wine is watered down.

Your leaders are rebels, friends of thieves. They all love bribes and run after gifts. They give no justice to orphans, the widow's complaint doesn't catch their attention.

"Therefore," says the Lord, Yehovah-Tzva'ot, the Mighty One of Isra'el, "I will free myself of my adversaries, I will take vengeance on my enemies.

Isaiah 1:15-24
May Yehovah have mercy on us and grant us repentance.
