“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.
We 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.
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.

On 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. Continue reading
Election season is here in Washington State. You may have noticed all of the candidate signs placed around your town; signs for mayor, city council, county council, fire district and other such offices. These off year elections don’t draw as many voters as in a presidential election year, but it’s still important. The two mainstream political parties use these elections to build their “farm team;” folks that the parties can build up, train and groom for some higher office at some point.

It’s no secret that there’s a divide in the “pro-life” movement. To be honest, it’s less of a divide than people think. There are really two separate movements. On one hand there is the pro-life movement; which has for 40 years been advocating for strict regulation of abortion, willing to meet the pro-abortion crowd half way, which eventually ends up in legislative surrender. On the other hand, we have the abolitionists who seek not to regulate, not to manage or compromise, but to secure the total abolition of human abortion. I could go into the nitty-gritty of the slander lobbed at the abolitionists by both the pro-life and pro-abort crowd (interestingly, much of it sounds the same no matter who it comes from), but that would really take far too long to cover. What I will say is this: Abolitionists, abolition minded people like Rebecca Kiessling, and almost-abolition minded groups like Georgia Right To Life were raked across the coals last week for daring to oppose the terrible compromise known as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Erick Erickson (a traditional pro-life-for-some Republican) even went so far as to call groups and individuals who will not compromise the “Westboro Baptist Church of the pro-life movement.” This is the guy who doesn’t want us to compromise on taxes but is willing to compromise on who lives and who dies, revealing plainly the idol he truly worship$.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has passed the US House of Representatives; 228-196. The pro-abortion folks have wasted no time decrying this as a “far reaching anti-abortion bill” and I’m sure that they’ll use this vote to further their fictional conservative “war on women.”
At the same time, the pro-life crowd is slobbering all over themselves in excitement! “See! We did it!” Speaker Boehner even Tweeted that the “Horrors of Gosnell case underscore need to defend unborn life; the House has acted.” See, the unborn are now protected… Unless they were conceived in rape, or incest or if they haven’t reached that arbitrary 22 week benchmark. According to radical pro-abortion leftie Sally Kohn, this bill would only effect 1.5% of all currently legal abortions, leaving 98.5% of currently legal abortions untouched.
