Perhaps I should back up for context...
I have written posts already on the Prolife Movement, including the problems of trying to incrementally trim and regulate abortion. You can read them here.
It must be understood that Abolitionists call for justice and equity for the preborn child to be established. It is of upmost importance that we point out the inequity of regulating abortion (which is a staple strategy of the Prolife movement) as if it were healthcare instead of the homicide of innocent and vulnerable human beings it actually is.
Hundreds of Prolife bills have been put into law, federally and in various states, but NOT ONE of which treats abortion as the murder that it is. This is appalling.
Consider the words of the God and Judge of all:
"Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause... Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause. Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked" (Exodus 23:2-3, 6-7).
[To "wrest" here means to "put away, turn aside, pervert, overthrow, cast aside." It carries the concept of wrestling away the just protection from those who need it. It should be plain that God is against the subverting of justice and equity.]
These political moves and bills may claim to be saving some babies, but they are actually withholding equal justice from...
And the list goes on and on and on and on.
And yet people, well meaning Christian people—sincere Prolife people—are still following the crowd to turn away protection under law for the weakest and poorest among us. Bible believing Christians are promoting, funding, voting for, and then cheering over the political victories that Prolife organizations and lobbyists are fighting for—those things that we should really be weeping and repenting over.
And we've been doing this for over 4o years. Over a million are still murdered every year. We are confident in our method and ask God to bless what in reality are really just wicked measures and iniquitous decrees.
There is danger in opposing evil in a manner that God calls evil. When we compromise, we are collaborating with murder—complicit in the crime.
God told one such nation that allowed child sacrifice in their society while claiming piety,
"And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood."
"Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow."
"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool"
Notice that the Lord commands us to "Cease to do evil, Learn to do well".
NOW, BACK TO THE FIRST QUESTION.
In response to the call of abolitionists, who point out the inequity of all this, some Prolifers have raised the question, "What if there was no Prolife Movement legislative machine?"
They ask and defend their stance with the reason that if we didn't have these bills, if we didn't regulate abortion and pass laws to save some, there would be NO PROTECTION AT ALL for babies in the womb. "What would we have if we didn't have these organizations, lobbyists, and lawmakers pushing for such bills?"
—Well, we might have what France, Germany, Russia, and many other nations have. Those secular humanist governments only allow abortion up to 12 weeks.
What fools we are to think that we are so conservative in all our laws and regulations!
The preborn have more "protection" under those God hating governments than in the most Pro-life states in our land.
—We might have Christians actually repenting of their apathy and compromise and rising up to love their preborn neighbors themselves instead of trusting and paying someone else to do it for them.
—We might have Christians going to the gates of death in droves, to stand and plead for lives and warning the wicked and rescuing the weak. [Abortion mills across the country today are by and large operating with LITTLE OR NO Christians present on the sidewalk to plead for lives, preach the Gospel, and provide assistance assistance to those who will turn away.]
—We might have droves of Christians repenting and engaging with our society, in the church assembly, in the public square, in congress, and on social media bringing the Gospel into conflict with the culture of child sacrifice.
—We might have God's people rising as an army pressing on, spreading the truth, seeding the land with literature, destroying misinformation, and declaring what God says about the holocaust, demanding the need for abolition.
—We might have a flood of voters swelling with "a voice as strong as thunder", demanding the END OF ABORTION, the ABOLITION OF HUMAN ABORTION.
The Lord knows.
"Duty is ours. Results are God's."
Abortion must be abolished!
[Note: It should be recognized that there are and have been Christians in the Prolife Movement who have stood for righteousness, and true justice. This post is concerning the movement as a whole, and specifically the strategy of regulating murder politically, legislatively, which has been naively adopted by MANY who have not thought through what "regulatory means" means, or have been trained to think that it is the best way. Often even the staunchest of Prolife Christians, who have sought to protect and rescue our preborn neighbors for years, have been shocked to have found ourselves to have compromised in how we have allowed for this in lawmaking. It is humbling. We pray for eyes to be opened, for humility, and for repentance among our fellows.]
