It’s Time for Honesty
Today’s post is not suitable for young children. Though not graphic in a detailed sense, the information I will be sharing is very disturbing and heartbreaking. However, I feel it is very important and must be shared. I suggest that you copy this post as soon as possible, before it disappears. Also, a link to the entire article/report from which I took the information is here. Please download that also, while the link is still available; some don’t want you to know the truth. And finally, if you have had an abortion and still struggle with guilt, you may not want to read or listen to this; my heart is not to condemn or wound anyone. There is TOTAL forgiveness, cleansing and healing available to you. I actually have a strong message (podcast) entitled Broken No More, to aid you in this process; it can be viewed here.
When Trump was president, he took immediate action to stop the government’s funding of abortion and its practice of buying aborted babies’ body parts for research. He was, in fact, America’s most pro-life president ever. One of Biden’s top agendas was reversing this and resuming the process. The murder of babies in the womb is abominable, but selling and using their body parts for research is beyond abominable. It is hideous beyond belief. We think nothing of condemning the Nazis for torturing, killing and using the Jews’ bodies for research. Yet, for some, doing so to unborn babies is somehow fine.
Using new emails uncovered by Judicial Watch’s FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request, The Federalist reports:
“In what should have been a national headline, the exposure of the U.S. government’s involvement in trafficking aborted baby body parts is now more noteworthy following Friday’s announcement from the White House. At President Biden’s direction, the Department of Health and Human Services reversed the Trump administration’s policy protecting preborn Americans from the callous dehumanization of organ harvesting and further desecration of their bodies in research disguised as science.” One can’t help but wonder if the anti-Trump Christians who voted for Biden are beginning to have voter’s remorse. And this is exactly why I contend that Christian leaders should be passionately involved in the process of government. (See yesterday’s post here.)
The Federalist continued, “The sickening decision now gives license to our ‘best and brightest’ government researchers and agencies, those in charge of steering the country towards medical breakthroughs and scientific progress, to use the skin, brains, and eyeballs of children in research that affects all of us and is funded by our money...”1
The article (which, again, you can link to at the beginning of today’s post) shares many details, baby parts’ price lists, etc. Here are a few of the facts exposed:
the FDA paid $2000 per baby
they bought the organs of aborted babies
the skin of a 21 week old Down syndrome baby (number xxx602) was sold
they required “fresh, never frozen” babies
they requested late-term babies, up to 24 weeks old
they bought skulls of second trimester babies
they requested boy organs in order to create humanized mice
they described some babies’ parts as ‘amazing’
our tax dollars paid for FDA trips to ‘humanized mice workshops’ in Europe
I am sorry for the hideousness of this information, but we as Americans need to know about this loathsome, inhuman activity. And if it is acceptable, why do they hide it? If our government feels it is appropriate, why did it require a FOIA request to get the information? This is unquestionably the most despicable information I have ever come across.
The Bible speaks of those whose consciences have been seared (1 Timothy 4:2). If this doesn’t qualify, I’m not sure what does. If these practices are not an indication that abortion and its evolution into barbarism are influenced by demons, what would be? The first chapter of the book of Romans speaks of “vile affections” (verse 26, KJV), and “depraved minds” (verse 28, NASV). Actually, much of the content in verses 28-31 is appropriate:
“And because they thought it was worthless to embrace the true knowledge of God, God gave them over to a worthless mind-set, to break all rules of proper conduct. Their sinful lives became full of every kind of evil, wicked schemes, greed, and cruelty...They are deceitful liars full of hostility...totally immoral. They are senseless, faithless, ruthless, heartless, and completely merciless.” (Romans 1:28-31, TPT)
“After a speech, pro-life activist Penny Lea was approached by an old man. Weeping, he told her the following story:
‘“I lived in Germany during the Nazi holocaust. I considered myself a Christian. I attended church since I was a small boy. We had heard the stories of what was happening to the Jews, but like most people today in America, we tried to distance ourselves from the reality of what was really taking place. What could anyone do to stop it?
‘“A railroad track ran behind our small church, and each Sunday morning we would hear the whistle from a distance and then the clacking of the wheels moving over the track. We became disturbed when one Sunday we noticed cries coming from the train as it passed by. We grimly realized that the train was carrying Jews.
‘“Week after week that train whistle would blow. We would dread to hear the sound of those old wheels because we knew that the Jews would begin to cry out to us as they passed our church. It was so terribly disturbing! We knew exactly at what time that whistle would blow. And we decided the only way to keep from being so disturbed by the cries was to start singing our hymns. If some of the screams reached our ears, we’d just sing a little louder until we could hear them no more. I still hear that train whistle in my sleep. I can still hear them crying out for help. God, forgive all of us who called ourselves Christians, yet did nothing to intervene.’”2
Please don’t allow anything to drown out the silent screams of the unborn. Don’t hide from the truth. Post it. Preach about it. Write about it. Do a podcast about it. Publicize it. For God’s sake, stop the singing and listen.
Hitler said of the Austrians after they voted 98% to 2% to appease him and join The Third Reich, “How fortunate for us that the people choose to remain ignorant.”(3) I fear that we in the American church have chosen to anesthetize ourselves to the pain of what is occurring. Abortion has been happening so long - almost 50 years now since Roe v. Wade - that we’ve become numb. It doesn’t shock us anymore. It doesn’t trigger grief. For most, sadly, there isn’t even a pause. Pastor, how long has it been since you talked about it to your congregation? Led in a public prayer to see it end? To all of us, how long since we cried for the tortured, dismembered babies? Reject the choice to remain ignorant. Think about what is occurring. Then choose to do something. Make a difference! Shout your protest!! Expose this evil!! At the very least, VOTE PRO-LIFE.
In the movie The Patriot, Benjamin Martin’s sister-in-law attempted to comfort him, defending his initial decision not to fight the British. “You have done nothing for which to be ashamed,” she claimed.
Martin’s thoughtful and poignant response was: “I have done nothing. For that I am ashamed.”
God forbid that Martin’s lament would become the tragic epitaph of today’s America regarding this modern-day holocaust. I pray that when all is said and done, this is not what history records of us. May we, like Martin, finally wake up and do something.
You may think I hate the people doing these things. I do not. I pray for their salvation. God can, and wants to forgive them. The blood of Jesus is more powerful than their blood sacrifices. Holocaust survivor Corrie Ten Boom, whose entire family died in the Nazi concentration camps once said, “Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred.” I forgive those who have perpetrated these evils. I will not, however, be silent.
Forward The Federalist article to your friends. Pastors and Christian leaders, tell your people the truth. Find an appropriate way to inform them, and do so. If you choose not to do that, at least refer them to the article. We must not be silent any longer!
Pray with me:
Father, our hearts break when we read about what is happening to the babies. If our hearts feel such pain, what must Yours feel? Surely You know each of them, have brought them to Your house, and given them names. They are mere numbers no more.
We have no words to express our utter shame for what we have allowed in America. We can only take solace in the fact that the blood of Christ is greater than all of our sins. Please forgive and cleanse us as a nation for these unthinkable, unconscionable actions.
We humbly cry out, as we have many times before, please help us stop this evil. Help us overturn Roe v. Wade and shut down every abortion mill in America! Help us stop this inhuman research! Give us as a nation, once again, a love for life, including the unborn. In Christ’s name we ask. Amen.
What can wash away our sins? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What can make us whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus. Oh, precious is the flow, that makes us white as snow. No other fount we know - nothing but the blood of Jesus.4
