20 Reasons Why the 20 Week Abortion Ban is Not Good

I cannot celebrate the 20 week abortion ban because I love my neighbor.  The Bible describes true agape love (called charity) in "the Love Chapter", saying, "Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth" (I Corinthians 13:6).

20 REASONS why the ban is bad.

1. It is ageist in nature. Judging an individual, less human, and less worthy of protection based on their age, size, level of development, location, etc.  Ageism is judging "according to appearance" violating Christ's command: "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24).  Ageism is evil.  It must be repented of and forsaken.

2. It is completely arbitrary, moved by personal whim rather than truth.  We know (Biblically, scientifically, medically) that a human's life begins at conception.  To say "We will only protect you from murder once you can feel pain" is just as subjectively arbitrary as "once you pass puberty", "once you can vote", or "once you come out of your mother's body".  If we should be happy that at least some humans will be protected, then why don't we celebrate Roe v. Wade?  Roe protects humans once they're born.  Fighting arbitrariness in an arbitrary way is ridiculous.  

3. It causes unequal treatment of humans.  The law should establish equity, equal just and protection for all.  The famous statue "Justice" is pictured with a blindfold, not favoring a side in the case based on who the players are.  In the Law (see Exodus 23:1-9 for example), God warned to avoid respect of persons in judgment. The all wise God declared "It is not good to have respect of persons in judgment" (Proverbs 24:23).  The prophets decried the lack of equity in their day: 

"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." (Isaiah 59:14).

"Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity." (Micah 3:9).  
Pro-Life leaders should heed this warning.  This ban establishes inequity, NOT equity.  And inequity IS iniquity.

4. It undermines what we profess to believe.  If someone says that they believe that humans begin at conception and that abortion is a wrongful killing of said human, yet says that you can kill that human at any point after conception, they have exposed themselves as inconsistent and hypocritical.  And the world sees through it.  

5. It is ineffective, and won't save the babies like the Pro-life public thinks it will.  Over 90% of abortions are committed before 12 weeks.  Only 1.2-1.3% of abortions occur after 20 weeks.  This ban, so hailed by the Pro-Life community abandons more than 98% of preborn victims to murder.   

6. Even the babies it claims to protect (those after 20 weeks) are not safe.  It has exceptions of rape, incest, and life of the mother.  None of these exceptions are just reasons to murder an innocent person (I have dealt with these in other posts, which can be found and read).  The awful truth is that nearly all Pro-Life politicians, including President Donald Trump, will make exceptions for murder.  So if a woman is past 20 weeks, and wants an abortion, she can just claim she was raped, or get a physician to say it could endanger her life, and the baby can still be slain.

7. It educates the public erroneously.  Laws inform the public.  People will just murder their child earlier, believing that it is okay because the children can't feel pain yet.  I have heard it from the lips of aborting parents.  "The government says it is okay."  "My baby can't feel pain yet."  Where do they gain such a pompous arrogance as they walk inside to kill their baby?  From the Pro-life movement and their educational bills.  The same is true with heartbeat legislation.

By the way, is murder wrong because it is painful?  Should we make it legal to kill your wife while she's asleep so she doesn't feel the pain?  Should the Mafia get away with killing as long as they use chloroform first?  GOD FORBID.  Let's teach the right thing by our laws.

8. It entrenches the lie that abortion is a constitutional right.  The ban does not contradict the declaration of the Supreme Court about the idea that abortion being constitutional.  They are in effect telling the public, "Your right to abortion is recognized. You can still end your baby's life, just do it sooner.  However, the FACT is that the right to murder human beings is NOT in the U.S. Constitution.  Our founding documents actually proclaim that life is an inalienable right, given by God.  The Constitution was made to "secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity".  That posterity is talking about our children.  Murdering babies is not a right - It is a wrong.

9. It acts as though Roe v. Wade is legitimate law.  Courts do not make laws.  The Constitution is the supreme law of the land.  When a court gives an opinion that violates the Constitution (and the Higher Law of God), they are outside of their authority and it is the duty of the other branches of government and lesser magistrates to defy them, not capitulate to them and work within their parameters.  If they said that children under 10 years of age, who had not gone through puberty to fully developed humans, are not protected under law and can be aborted, the executive branch, the legislative branch, and every state would have the duty to defy that opinion and not permit the murder of children in their jurisdiction.  If we would defy the Supreme Court to protect 9 year olds, and not 19 weekers in the womb, it is only because we are become ageist, and must repent (see Reason #1).

10. It snatches justice from the afflicted.  The most vulnerable are denied protection.
"Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:" (Exodus 23:2).

"Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous" (Deuteronomy 16:19).


"Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause" (Exodus 23:6).  Those who follow the crowd in this 20 week ban, neglecting the protection of those being slain, are violating Exodus 23:2 outright.  Let us consider our ways.

11. It protects the murderers as long as they kill sooner.  An abortionist can still murder, as long as his victims are younger, more vulnerable.  Remember, over 98% are already being murdered before 20 weeks.  This is assuming that murderers who have forsaken the Hypocratic Oath for the Hypocritic Oath can be trusted to not lie about how old the baby was in records.  Moreover, don't forget the exceptions.

12. It does NOT allow for prosecution of those who would hire the assassin. 
This is folly.  Parents who procure an abortion are protagonists in the crime.  If someone instigates a murder by seeking out and paying a hitman to slay an innocent person, they are also guilty.  This idea of letting the one who buys the hit off would not be countenanced anywhere else BUT in the case of abortion.  It is the fruit of the Pro-life practice of making women out to be a victim in the situation.  The victim is the child.  This again is INEQUITY.

13. It doesn't call abortion "Murder", nor treat it as such.  It follows the pattern of every one of the hundreds of other federal and state Pro-life bills that have passed in these United States that neglected this truth.

14. It treats even the murder of the children past 20 weeks as NOT MURDER.  The abortionist who kills a preborn child after that point, could face a fine, or up to five years in prison, or both.  That is far less than the average sentence for homicide in the first degree of born persons.  

15. It is a smokescreen, distracting from the fact that they are not doing their duty.  They have the authority and obligation to establish equity for those under their jurisdiction by law, to punish evildoers and protect the innocent.  "Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place" (Jeremiah 22:3).  This bill does not accomplish their duty before God and man, but it does make it look like that they are doing something.

16. It paints the pro-life legislators as champions, while they are actually treacherous.  Cheers go up for the heroes who faced the dragon.  But what if the heroes just went up and made a deal with the dragon to only slay some girls from the village?  Or only a few at a time?  At least it won't eat all the children, as far as we know, right?  They are champions, right?  Wrong.  The champions are the ones going who actually are taking up the cause of the ones they say they are representing.  Heroes go to take the dragon DOWN.  

NOW, I hasten to say that there is no doubt in my mind that many legislators, many workers in Pro-life organizations, many supporters of this ban BELIEVE they are doing right.  They have been taught to do it this way, and have not really examined this endeavor in the light of Truth.  But it is still wrong to do wrong! And we all must be confronted with the error.  We all need to hear the truth, be exposed to the horror of this, search the Scriptures, consider our ways, and repent.  We need to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.  Opposing injustice unjustly is not just.  We need to be shown where we're wrong and how to oppose this evil in the right way.  

We need to recognize that in spite of our Pro-life stickers and high sounding religious and political zeal, and prayers to God to bless our efforts, our hands are "full of blood".  We need to hearken to the LORD: "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..." (Isaiah 1).  

We need to forsake the foolish and live!  Let us exhort each other and our leaders to be true champions of the weakest among us!  Pro-life congressmen and senators are putting bills out that they are told the people are demanding.  Let them hear the demand for total and immediate abolition of abortion! 

17. It gives voters and supporters a false sense of peace and hope.  Millions of Pro-lifers, including multitudes of Christians hear of this ban and rejoice, not realizing all the ramifications.  They think, "Wow!  We're doing something!  We're winning!"  and they keeping supporting unrighteous decrees and voting for those who compromise and collaborate with the holocaust of their neighbors, all the while, thinking they are opposing this evil the right way.  It is a perfect example of the verse, "For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace" (Jeremiah 8:11).  It lulls us to continue the trend of trimming the tree, rather than wake up to the truth and take the axe to the root.  It keeps us from unfeigned love, from righteous action, from actual victory.

18. It fails to acknowledge the abortion holocaust and our guilt.  Far from humbly confessing the slaughter of over 60 million American children, it perpetuates the ghastly killing under color of law, under the guise of being caring and compassionate about the pain of victims.

19. It fails to be repentant.  Deciding to only kill younger babies is not humbly confessing our sin, and turning to God in repentance, seeking mercy for ourselves and healing for our land.  "Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?" (Psalm 94:20).  Should we expect God to bless us while we continue to cast His law behind our backs?  Let us humble ourselves, and pray, and seek His face, and TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS, including the way of perverting the justice of the most innocent and most vulnerable in our land--the preborn, whose murders after this ban, if it ever is signed into law, will continue to be the number one cause of death in America.

20. It keeps abortion safe---from ABOLITION.  This does not secure the safety of the innocent.  It secures the prolonging of the bloodshed.     

The things this 20 week ban does do effectively is:

A. Give Pro-life organizations something to cheer over and garner support for more like actions.

B. Give Pro-life government leaders a 100% Pro-Life voting record and future votes. 

C. Give Pro-life people the illusion that the fight is being won and keep them content to continue giving and voting for the same.  We need to repent and abolish abortion.

I know many will say, "You are just not happy because it isn't doing enough".
That is not the issue.  It is not about doing enough.  It is about doing what is RIGHT.

Others will make a plea towards pragmatism.  But, we need to choose to be found OBEDIENT to our King Jesus.  "Duty is ours.  Results are God's."  Why should God bless wicked measures and iniquitous decrees?  Let us trust the Lord.  God's work done God's way will work.

Finally, someone will say, "But if we didn't have these bills, if we didn't regulate abortion, there would be no protection at all for babies in the womb.  What would we have if we didn't have the Pro-life organizations, lobbyists, and lawmakers pushing for such bills?"

One answer the above argument? 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 this!  The preborn have more "protection" under those God hating governments than in the most Pro-life states in our land.

OR...

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.  We might have Christians engaging with our society, in the church assembly, in the public square, and on social media bringing the Gospel into conflict with the culture of child sacrifice.  We might have God's people spreading the truth, seeding the land with literature, etc. about the holocaust and 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.  

Again, "Duty is ours.  Results are God's." 

Abortion MUST be ABOLISHED.

Inequity is Iniquity—The Problem of Regulationism

Some may wonder why abolitionists are so opposed to the regulation of abortion.  

As Christians, we unashamedly call for repentance and abolition of government permission and protection for the murder of the weakest of our neighbors.


We call out the wrongness of making bills that dictate that:

abortion mills must be clean, have wider halls, etc.
abortive mothers must wait 24 hours, have parental permission if minors, etc.
—abortionists must be licensed, cannot kill after some arbitrary age of the child, etc.

Some think that we are against it because it is JUST NOT ENOUGH.


The reality is that we are against it because it IS NOT JUST.


The incremental and regulatory treatment of this horrific holocaust fails to establish equity for the preborn.


Some abolitionists have coined the expression, "Inequity is Iniquity."


This is a true statement!  


We live in a culture of great iniquity, in which even Christians who are seeking to oppose the evil of abortion are doing so using inequity.


I hope this post may shed some light and awaken my brothers and sisters who may not have thought it through.


FIRST and (I hope) obvious.  Not only is abortion iniquity, but unjustly opposing abortion is also iniquity.

For instance, if someone says that the baby in the womb is not a human or we should regulate their murder (treating homicide as healthcare) rather than call for immediate repentance and abolition, they are in favor of allowing for a child to be murdered at ANY arbitrary point, or IN CERTAIN EXCEPTIONAL CASES. 


They are, in word and deed, bearing false witness against their neighbor. They are sinning. 


Iniquity is a word we generally use for sin.


SECOND, the definition of equity is "justice, right, having impartiality, being equal." To be equitous is to be impartial when distributing justice.  


Demanding equity is calling for equal protection and justice for all human beings, without respect of persons.


Please consider seriously...


That the LORD Himself is equitous: "Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the world in righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity" (Psalm 98:9).


And that God commands that we not support any perversion of justice and equity, (i.e. even if the pro-life movement tells us it is a good idea):  "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 many in his cause...Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.  Keep thou far from a false matter; and the innocent and the righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked" (Exodus 23:2-3,6-7).


We should never be partial in dealing with people
giving favor because of their station or financial status, or based on their ethnicity, age, level of development, present location, state of dependency, or whether they look like us yet.  We are to live with equity.  

When we stray from what is just, from that which establishes equity, no matter what we say in rationale, our actions become a deviation from true righteous judgment
it becomes a judgment of appearance, rather than reality.

Jesus said: "Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment" (John 7:24).


It displeases the Judge of all the earth when men do not act according to truth, justice, and equity:


"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter...and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment" (Isaiah 59:14-15).


In James, we find the following exhortation concerning treating people with inequity: "My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons...Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?...if ye fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, 'Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself', ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors" (James 2:1-9).


The word avon, often translated as iniquity in the Old Testament, means "perversity, to crook away, to turn from righteousness.  This carries the concept found in Isaiah 53 of "going one's way."


"All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every on to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all" (Isaiah 53:6).


The root of sin is selfishness.  Choosing our own way over God's.  Thus iniquity can be used to describe that which may be REPULSIVE to society like rape or slavery, or that which may be RESPECTABLE to society, such as cleaving to Mormonism, Islam, Catholicism, etc. for salvation rather than in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  


Iniquity can be ascribed to whenever one departs from God's commandment to do what is right in their own eyes.  People who seek to "heal the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace" are NOT doing righteously according to God (Jeremiah 8:11).


Even if we FEEL that we are doing some good, 

following the experts, 
being pragmatic, 
or obeying God and trusting Him, 
it is UNJUST, thus INEQUITY.

As one young abolitionist said recently,


"Christians shouldn't support regulating murder.  They should support ending it.  The movement needs to be to end it, not celebrate with compromises.  Continual compromising has been going on for 40 and won't end it.  Pro-life laws value one age and circumstance or another.  Pro-life laws, while they do save a few lives, are unjust laws."


Inequity is Iniquity.  


To promote any pro-life regulatory law is iniquity
and it should never be celebrated.  We are to have charity (agape love) towards our neighbors, and according to the "love chapter", charity "Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth" (I Corinthians 13:6).

THIRD and finally, consider the etymology of both words.


Equity: L. oequitas, from oequus, equal, even, level.


Iniquity: L. iniquitas; in and oequitas (which is THE SAME WORD AS ABOVE).


"Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal.  Hear now, O house of Israel; Is my way equal? are not your ways unequal?" (Ezekiel 18:25).


Iniquity, at its root, means not equal
—not just—not lining up with God's word, His character, and His way.

Inequity IS Iniquity.


Equity and Justice must be established.  


We need to:

1. Treat the preborn like who they are (image bearers of God).
2. Treat abortion like what it is (murder).
3. Treat Roe v. Wade like what it is (a perverted opinion). 

Abortion must be abolished.

Using Images of Abortion Victims - Why? Three Basic Reasons

Some have asked about the use of graphic signs (more properly termed victim images) practiced by many abolitionists and other Christians who oppose preborn murder (abortion).

Why do I use victim images?

There are at least three basic reasons why.

1. It follows God's pattern.  Often when God sent His prophets with a message, He gave them an illustration, object, etc, to show to get attention and preach about.  Nathan, Jeremiah, Jesus, Paul, and many others utlilized this method.  

I think the one who may have done it the most was Ezekiel.  God had Ezekiel do some crazy things to pound the message home...
-shave both head and beard,
-cook his food with manure,
-shake and quake why he ate,
-break in an loot his own house,
-NOT mourn when his beloved wife died...get the picture?

God told him in one place to specifically show the city the bloody abomination with the gates: "...wilt thou judge the bloody city? yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominations" (Ezekiel 22:2).

I am simply following that instruction.  Many cities (and the nation) have baby butcher shops.  We have slaughtered over 60 million.  We have filled the land from one end to another with innocent blood.  But yet our country and people claim that there is nothing wrong pictures of babies that have wrong.  Christians continue to think that God will bless our nation.  The world wants to keep this hidden.  But "hands that shed innocent blood" are ABOMINATION to God (Proverbs 6:16-17).  So I use pictures of babies that have been murdered to shew the city "her abominations".  This is some our society needs to face.

 "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins" (Isaiah 58:1).

Therefore, I show these pictures to soberly expose the preborn holocaust, to bring light to the dark deeds which the world wants to keep hidden.

2. It is effectual.  The impact of such an image is powerful.  Notice that I did not say pragmatic.  Let's consider the following 3 reasons that this practice is effectual. 
   A. It CHALLENGES people to face the facts.  This was a baby, not a blob of tissue.  He/she had little ears, a nose, cute little fingers, toes, eyelashes.
This is why the pro-choice crowd fight against allowing these pictures into the controversy. What reason would they have?  For the exact reason that Holocaust deniers fight against allowing pictures from the death camps being allowed in the debate.  The picture proves them wrong.

   B. It CHANNELS the message quickly.  People driving by may not be able to read all the words of some signs, but one look at the picture of an aborted baby WILL get the message across immediately.  They know what we're talking about.  A picture is worth a thousands years.

It puts me in mind of not long ago when some young people and I went out to agitate at an intersection in Wichita.  A woman passenger looked out the closed window, and saw the signs as her vehicle came alongside.  The teens holding the signs could see her disgusted look and saw her mouth saying, "What is that?!" and then her eyes widened with horror, and she mouthed the words, "IT'S a BABY!"

   C. It can be used to CHANGE hearts.  
I have seen the shock of women who see what happens to the baby.
I have seen a father look at the posters and go back in the mill to rescue the mother and baby. 
I have seen mothers turn away from having an abortion, and tell me that it was the aborted baby picture that showed that the "thing" inside her womb was a real child.  
I have seen a woman who was just driving by, see the pictures, and pull over to sit and weep uncontrollably for the children.
I have met a medical doctor who in the past had openly supported the abortion cause.  His own wife had had an abortion.  They believed the lies of the "establishment".  But when saw the pictures of the babies that were aborted, it transformed his thinking. In fact, when I met him, he was standing outside an abortion mill, calling out to women,  and lifting the sign of an aborted baby above his head.  May the Lord turn the hearts of the fathers to the children (Malachi 4:6). 

So I call out to people, "Does this picture not horrify you?  Are you not grieved?  Let us be stirred to stop any more babies from having to suffer this child's fate.  'Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?"  Babies are being butchered for a price.  What will you do to stop this?  Remember this picture when you are drinking your coffee! When you are talking with your friends! When you are standing in the voting booth!  And remember that they are being destroyed on your watch!  If you do nothing to protect them, their blood is on your hands!"

3. It is Just.  Those aborted humans have the right to face their accusers.  In our nation, it is recognized that no one is to be deprived of life, liberty, or property without "due process of law."  It must be proven that they are guilty of a crime worthy of capitol punishment.  

The Bill of Rights justly guarantees Americans a broad range of rights.  This includes the right to face one's accusers --- as the Sixth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states, 
"In all criminal prosecutions the accused shall the enjoy the right...to be confronted with the witness against him."  

Yet these preborn infants are denied that right.  The right to a trial by jury!

The right to be assumed innocent until proven guilt!  The right to face their accusers!

They are guilty of no crime, yet they are executed in ways so cruel and painful, that we don't even execute serial killers and mass rapists in those ways!  "These things ought not so to be" (James 3:10).  God provided cities of refuge for manslayers to flee into until they could get a righteous trial (Joshua 20:9).  Even the Roman empire had this practice:

Acts 25:16 "To whom I answered, It is not the manner of the Romans to deliver any man to die, before that he which is accused have the accusers face to face, and have licence to answer for himself concerning the crime laid against him."

If manslayers should be protected in this manner, shouldn't innocent children?

Therefore, I show these pictures, that these babies may testify in the only way they can now That they are babies.  
That they were murdered.  
That thousands of others like them are being slain EVERY DAY!
That this killing must end.

Abortion MUST BE ABOLISHED.

A Population Parallel: Wake Up, State of Kansas! The Abortion Holocaust is Greater than We Think

Do we really understand the extent of the murders by abortion?

Over three thousand babies are murdered EVERY DAY in our nation.  I want to try to hit that number home, by making "Population Parallels", using cities and towns in the Sunflower State.  



Picture the murder of the born population of Lindsborg (3,498),  happening EVERY DAY! Or more than that of the combined citizens of Elbing (229), Whitewater (718), Perry (929), New Strawn (394), and Olpe (546) EVERY DAY.

The population of Colby (5,387) EVERY 2 DAYS!

The population of Fort Scott (8,087) EVERY 3 DAYS!

The population of Hays (20,510) EVERY WEEK!

The population of Lawrence (87,643) EVERY MONTH! 

Think of it---the current amount of children that are brutally sacrificed to the god of Self in our country is like having the populations of 
Leawood (31,867), 
Lenexa (48,190), 
Rowland Park (6,731), and 
Mission Hills (3,498) murdered in ONE MONTH.

And then the populations of 
Basehor (4,613),
Lansing (11,265),
Leavenworth (35,251),
Tonganoxie (4,996)...
INDEED, the WHOLE population of Leavenworth County (76,227), plus the city of Merriam (11,003) the NEXT MONTH.

Followed by the murder of the populations of 
Manhattan (52,135),
Emporia (24,916), and 
Arkansas City (12,415) the THIRD MONTH.

And the murder of the populations of 
Junction City (23,353),
Dodge City (27,340), and
Garden City (26,658), with
Ottawa (12,649) thrown in the the FOURTH MONTH.

And the murder of the people of  
Newton (19,132), 
McPherson (13,155), 
Concordia (5,395), 
Abilene (6,844) 
DeSoto (5,720), 
Bonner Springs (7,308), 
Ellis (2,062), 
Hesston (3,709), 
Great Bend (15,995), 
Baxter Springs (4,238), 
Moundridge (1,737)
Mt. Hope (813),
and Ellsworth (3,120) the FIFTH MONTH.

If the first month was January, that would still leave enough time to kill off the populations of 
Wichita (382,368),
Kansas City (145,786), 
Hutchinson (42,080) 
and Salina (47,707) BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR!

If the murders of the preborn across our nation were actually murders of the born in the state of Kansas, the ENTIRE STATE POPULATION (2,853,118 people) would be gone in three years.  The Sunflower State COMPLETELY empty.

And that is just the number of reported abortions.

Wake UP, Kansas!  
The Abortion Holocaust is Greater Than You Think.

If this seems horrific to you, imagine the indignation of the all knowing God of heaven, 
Who is HOLY, HOLY, HOLY!
Who has made these precious babies in His image!
Who declares them to be His heritage and a blessing!
Who sees their slaughter in the secret places! 
Who hears the cry of their innocent blood!
Who commands US to open OUR mouths for those who have no voice, for those who are being slaughtered!
Who commands US to warn the wicked and rescue the weak!
Who will bring judgment to a people that allows the shedding of innocent blood to happen in their communities without seeking justice!

Leviticus 20:1-5
:1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"
:2 "Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones."
:3 "And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name."
:4 "And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:"
:5 "Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people."

WAKE UP, KANSAS!  WAKE UP, CHURCH!

Let us NOT hide our eyes!
Let us NOT be silent NOR absent when they are being slain!
Let us plead for justice and call for truth!

May our communities awaken and repent of our apathy toward culture of child sacrifice that is murdering our neighbors!

If this post agitates your conscience, and you desire to do something practical to oppose the evil slaughter done to your preborn neighbors who are murdered at the rate of TWO EVERY MINUTE, please contact me.

Abortion must be abolished.

A Population Parallel - Wake UP, Greater Kansas City! The Abortion Holocaust is Greater Than We Think.

Do we really understand the extent of the murders by abortion?

Over three thousand babies are murdered EVERY DAY in our nation.  I want to try to hit that number home, by making "Population Parallels", using towns in the Greater Kansas City Area.  




Picture the murder of the born population of Buckner, MO (3,076) happening EVERY DAY!

The population of Peculiar, MO (4,608) EVERY 2 DAYS!

The population of Pleasant Hill, MO (8,113) EVERY 3 DAYS!

The population of Prairie Village, KS (21,447) EVERY WEEK!

Think of it---the current amount of children that are brutally sacrificed to the god of Self in our country is like having the Kansas populations of 
Leawood (31,867), 
Lenexa (48,190), 
Rowland Park (6,731), and 
Mission Hills (3,498) murdered in ONE MONTH.

And then the Kansas populations of 
Basehor (4,613),
Lansing (11,265),
Leavenworth (35,251),
Tonganoxie (4,996)...
INDEED, the WHOLE population of Leavenworth County (76,227), plus the city of Merriam (11,003) the NEXT MONTH.

Followed by the murder of the Missouri populations of 
Blue Springs (52,575),
Grandview (24,475), and 
Grain Valley (12,854) the THIRD MONTH.

And the murder of the Missouri populations of 
Liberty (29,149),
North Kansas City (4,208), and
Gladstone (25,410), with
Belton (23,116) and Harrisonville (10,019) thrown in the the FOURTH MONTH.

If the first month was May, that would still leave enough time to kill off the populations of 
Kansas City, KS (145,786), 
St. Joseph, MO (76,780), 
Raytown, MO (29,526), 
and Lee's Summit, MO (91,364) BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR!

And that is just the number of reported abortions.

Wake UP, Greater Kansas City!  
The Abortion Holocaust is Greater Than You Think.

If this seems horrific to you, imagine the indignation of the all knowing God of heaven, 
Who is HOLY, HOLY, HOLY!
Who has made these precious babies in His image!
Who declares them to be His heritage and a blessing!
Who sees their slaughter in the secret places! 
Who hears the cry of their innocent blood!
Who commands US to open OUR mouths for those who have no voice, for those who are being slaughtered!
Who commands US to warn the wicked and rescue the weak!
Who will bring judgment to a people that allows the shedding of innocent blood to happen in their communities without seeking justice!

Leviticus 20:1-5
:1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"
:2 "Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones."
:3 "And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name."
:4 "And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:"
:5 "Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people."

WAKE UP, KANSAS CITY!  WAKE UP, CHURCH!

Let us NOT hide our eyes!
Let us NOT be silent NOR absent when they are being slain!
Let us plead for justice and call for truth!

May our communities awaken and repent of our apathy toward culture of child sacrifice that is murdering our neighbors!

Speaking the Truth in Love May Be Hard at Times, But it is Not Complicated

Near the beginning of the year 2017, a meme appeared on social media, created by a prolife organization.

                                          

This sentiment is pervasive, both in the pro-life community and in the Christian community.  I have heard respected conservative politicians, pro-life leaders and famous preachers, saying either... 

that abortion should not be called murder, because that is insensitive, and we'll turn people away from our position, or

that abortion should not be treated like murder and mothers who pay a hitman to kill their preborn children should not be prosecuted. 

Essentiallythat it is not loving to call women who abort their children "murderers".  That it is too complicated a matter, that they are victims, that we must not be offensive. 

This has been going on for a long time, and has become an accepted dogma for almost the whole of society, both pro-life and pro-choice.

The problem?   

It.
Is.
Wrong.

"We are to speak the truth in love, but we must ALWAYS speak the truth."

As an abolitionist, I call abortion "murder" because it is murder, and because I know the God Who can forgive and save repentant murderers.

To not tell the truth, and leave someone with false assurance that they have not committed the act of murder, placating their conscience by treating them like the victim rather than the victim being the child they paid to have slain, and to not lead to them to Christ for cleansing is HATEFUL.

It is a disservice to the woman, 
a betrayal to their murdered baby, 
and an affront to the God of all truth. 

Consider the words of this passage, especially the last verse.

Jeremiah 23:16-17,21-22 "Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. 
They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you...
I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings."

But, is telling a woman who has already had an abortion that she is a murderer really showing Christ-like compassion?

Yes!  It is the compassion of Christ that motivates me to tell them the truth!

I have spoken to hundreds of women walking into an abortion mill to kill their baby, and it is the love of Christ which constrains me to plead with them to not become murderers. As they are stumbling to the slaughter, it is out of love that I speak truth so that it might prick their conscience and keep them from the blood guilt that will be theirs.  

I have spoken with many who have committed murder to their pre-born child earlier in their life, and it is the love of Christ which constrains me to call them to repentance and find healing in Christ alone.   
  
I know many abolitionist sisters who have had abortions, and abolitionist brothers who have paid for abortions.  They all call themselves murderers saved by the grace of God

I met a woman who was passing by an abortion mill in Kansas City, Kansas, who told me that she had been sent to prison for killing another person.  In order to share the Gospel it is important that we never whitewash sin.  Sin must be called sin.  When someone admits to doing wrong, speaking the truth may seem hard at times, but it is never complicated!

I told her the exact same thing I had just been telling mothers walking inside to pay for an abortion and pleaded with her to repent and trust in Christ alone for her salvation! 

We spoke for about 15 minutes (quite an interesting conversation), and before she left, she told me that she thought I was the kindest and noblest man she had ever met. I responded that any good she saw in me was because of Jesus Christ (and I only share this to demonstrate that telling this woman the truth about her murder was not unloving and she recognized that I truly cared for her).   

Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

Christians, let us speak the truth.

Another morning, at the abortion mill, I talked with a mother who had heard me preaching at the gates of death, and had just turned away from aborting her child.  As we spoke, she admitted to having had a previous abortion six months before.  

Even as I rejoiced with her over the baby alive within her, I openly shared with her that the other baby was just as much a human being as this one and that she had murdered that child.  As I counseled her to repent of that former murder, turn to Jesus Christ for His cleansing, and grieve over that precious baby's death, tears filled her eyes!  She listened.  She exchanged contact information with us.  We went on to have a huge baby shower for her little bundle of a boy, and continue to engage her in relationship!  

Speaking the truth in love may be hard to do sometimes, but it is not complicated.

Ephesians 4:15 "But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:"

Abortion is murder and must be abolished.
