Calling All Pro-Life PCOs in the 26th District!

adamTomorrow night 7 p.m. Dec. 4 at the Givens Community Center at 1026 Sidney Ave., the Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs) of the 26th legislative district will meet to select three Republican nominees to be considered by the Pierce Co. Council and the Kitsap Co. Commission.  One of those candidates will replace the state house seat that was vacated by Jan Angel when she won her bid for state senator in the special election last month.  The Tacoma News Tribune covered the story, but failed to mention all of the candidates who have thrown in their hats.

I have had the pleasure of chatting with Adam Berman, who is one such candidate seeking the nomination of the PCOs.  I’m pleased to report that Adam is solidly pro-life and supports legislation that would define life as beginning at conception/fertilization and place all children, from the moment of conception, under protection of the law.  Adam has been receiving endorsements from prominent figures in the “liberty movement”, which caught my attention, so I decided to see just how thorough his understanding and commitment to liberty is.  Of his pro-life view, he says, “It’s the only fit with the philosophy of liberty.”  Not everyone in the “liberty movement” would agree with that, but he’s absolutely right.

I asked him if he would support Jason Overstreet’s bill (if elected), which I have called “The Gold Standard of Pro-Life Bills“, and since he is in the middle of preparing for tomorrow night’s election, he did not have the time to go and read the bill, and therefore, reserved promising support for a bill he hasn’t read (a refreshing quality in a politician).  He did however take the time to talk with me and he was willing to say he would support a simple bill that defines life as beginning at conception/fertilization and places all children under the protection under the law.  He did not express any of the usual “exceptions” that are common for politicians who call themselves “pro-life”.  He didn’t budge a bit from his position when I specifically asked about them either.

Therefore, I urge the pro-life PCOs in the 26th District (Pierce and Kitsap Counties) to elect Adam as one of the nominees for the house position.  Please press the other candidates for their detailed views before choosing the other 2 you send to the Pierce Co. Council and Kitsap Co. commission for consideration.

Seriously? You Think Abortion Can Be Safe?

California’s governor, Jerry Brown, has signed a bill (AB 154) that would allow non-physicians to perform abortions, and pro-lifers are railing against it.  This is already allowed in several states, including mine. I have to be honest though, I’m not sure that I understand their opposition to this particular bill.

Abortion is nothing more than legalized child murder and abortionists are nothing more than medically trained professionals who kill people instead of healing them, that is a clear fact.  Abortion itself should be opposed, but why spend time and energy fighting this?  Is the pro-life movement really so compromised?  It is really that important that a murderer have the title of “M.D.” after his name?

The pro-life movement is working to keep child murder safe, rare and ultimately, even if unintentionally, legal.  The argument goes like this: “If you don’t have a doctor performing the abortion, the woman (who has contracted with an assassin and has become an active participant in a brutal murder) might get hurt, through either shoddy technique or infection of some sort.”  The director of the National Right to Life’s Western regional office said this bill is “reducing the medical standards for abortion.”  For those with ears to hear, that statement is very revealing.  If all you’re interested in, pro-lifer, is keeping women safe while they kill children, I have but one word for you: REPENT!

When a woman walks in to the abortuary, if you are concerned with only that she is safe, you’re fighting the wrong battle.  This is important, so please hear me.  While we are not overly concerned with the “safety” of abortion (because murder is never safe as the whole point is to willfully and violently end life), neither should we or do we wish harm upon these abortion minded moms. Rather the opposite is true.  We pray that they would, if fact, be totally safe: physically, emotionally, and spiritually from abortion.  Woman are also image bearers of Almighty God, that’s why we simply want abortion to be immediately, totally, and forever abolished.

So repent of this foolishness, pro-lifer.  The only issue worth fighting here is this:  Children are being legally murdered!  Who cares whether it’s a doctor, a nurse practitioner, a midwife, or physicians’ assistant or some thug off the street?  It is legal and culturally acceptable to murder kids.  If you love women and want them to be safe, as we do, stop wasting your time on minutiae such as who gets to perform murder.  Instead, tell the truth in love, teaching and preaching the Gospel to women walking into these “clinics,” knowing that the Word of God never returns empty (Isaiah 55:11).  Educate the culture about the true horror of abortion through public agitation.  Work to abolish human abortion.

A Nation of Hypocrites

“We will insist an atrocity committed with chemical weapons is not only investigated… it must be confronted.”

~President Barack Hussein Obama II

“…delivering chemical weapons against children, is not something we do.”

~President Barack Hussein Obama II

I’m sure that I could find a dozen more quotes just like this one. Certainly, after Monday when the President is set to go on no less than six news/talk shows to tell us why he wants to go to war use military force in a “limited engagement” against Syria, we’ll have enough such quotes that we will be able to fill a small book. Elected Republican and Democrat leaders are suspending their differences to push for this action, as well. Certainly, most Americans and certainly all Abolitionists would agree with this sentiment: The use of chemical weapons against innocent human beings is atrocious. Here’s the hypocrisy: We live in a country in which 3,500 (plus) children are killed each day through abortion, and many of these abortions (read “killings” or “murders”) are carried out via chemicals.

THE ABOLITIONIST: His Own Image

The Abolistionist HeaderWe spend so much of our time protecting our life. We do it through common, everyday activities, and we rarely even give it a second thought. When we’re sick, we seek treatment. We strive to eat well. We wear a seat belt and we don’t drink and drive. We don’t use the hairdryer when we take a bath. We lock our doors at night to keep out potential danger. Why do we do these things? It’s simple, really. The vast majority of us realizes and understands that human life is precious and uniquely special.

We sometimes read stories in the news about some brave soul who went out of their way to protect another’s life. In the massacre in Aurora, Colorado, we heard stories about men who used their bodies to protect their loved ones.

We hear tales from the battlefield in which one of our brave fighting men willingly sacrificed his life to save the lives of his companions.

These stories are special, because they speak not only to the character that humanity can display, but also to the value of a human life.

THE ABOLITIONIST: The Comparison of Abortion to Slavery

The Abolistionist Header

The comparison of abortion to slavery/genocide is usually dismissed for purely visceral reasons (are those really reasons?), so I thought it would be worthwhile to examine how the comparison is accurate and in which ways it may not be.  Let’s begin with genocide.

Genocide is the systematic murder of a people group, and abortion belongs in this category inasmuch as there is a subgroup of human beings, those still in the womb, who have been dehumanized in order to justify their destruction.  How is abortion unlike other genocides? Well, firstly the preborn aren’t part of a different ethnic group from their attackers, and secondly they have no means of resistance. Continue reading

THE ABOLITIONIST: Confronting Planned Parenthood

The Abolistionist Header

A fellow abolitionist called me the other day to let me know that some representatives of Planned Parenthood were out fundraising in front of a local Starbucks. I was in the middle of preparing both the living room and a bible study for some friends who were coming over, but when my wife told me the news, I laid it aside and got in the car to go speak to them.

Agitating Works

Co-Authored by R. Clayton Strang and Judah Ivy

002On July 10th, the Seattle Abolitionist Society went to the Cedar River abortion “clinic” in Renton, WA.  Due to the set up of the parking lot, we were unable to get close enough to talk with anyone going into or out of the “clinic;” so we took our signs and stood along the main road.  We were all surprised to see how not busy this particular clinic was.  They specialize in later term abortions, so them not being busy makes sense, as most abortions take place well before the arbitrary “viable” stage.  Still, we expected more of a “funnel effect” from all the surrounding abortionists who refer there.  The three or so women who did drive in seemed determined not to see, one very young girl was driven in quickly by an older escort who smiled and laughed at the images of aborted children.  This confirms the need for agitation and deflation of pro-choice misinformation long before these girls end up at the human sacrifice centers.
