Freedom of Speech and Expression Debate Tackles Abortion

It appears those of us who disagree with abortion no longer have the exact same freedoms as the rest of America.
 
The U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t want to take this case in which a Colorado ruling blocked abortion protestors from displaying images of aborted fetuses near a church where they might upset children. A judge later barred protestors from displaying the “gruesome images.”
 
In this case, the protestors were outside of an abortion-approving church. First of all, shame on any church that defends killing babies at any stage of development, but why are these images offensive?
 
If every kind of foul, gory, perverted, sexual and sinful image imaginable is protected as an expression of free speech, how is this any different? Is it simply an issue of the right to kill – um, I mean, the ‘right to choose’?
 
I understand the graphic images of dead babies or baby body parts can be very disturbing to see; they should be disturbing! The problem is too many Americans have become desensitized to blood, guts, gore, and violence. Studies prove this has made our society worse.
 
Kids can watch endless violence on their video games and in movies; fighting, shooting, killing, bloody massacres, death, and murder are commonplace. Few complain to Hollywood or to video game producers about it. But now because of the complaints of abortion defenders and supporters, real images portraying the truth of abortion cannot be displayed in public?
 
Let’s just admit it so we can move on with the debate: most of us have seen worse on television or in movies, but we can disconnect from it because we know it is make believe.
 
We have bought liberal lies and talking points and we have lost our compassion for the most vulnerable. Father Frank Pavone once said, “America will not reject abortion until America sees abortion.” Is that what it will take to shake us out of complacency and selfishness? Sadly, many people don’t want to know the truth.
 
With the help of the government, media, Hollywood, and Planned Parenthood’s strategic marketing, the lines have been blurred regarding life. They have sold the ideas of convenience and sexual experimentation while minimizing morality.
 
A human heart begins beating between 4 – 6 weeks after conception and ultrasound imagery provides indisputable evidence of life in the womb. Some call them ‘pre-born’ babies. Truth is inconvenient to those who are making money from destroying lives. (See Kermit Gosnell)
 
If telling the truth and displaying graphic photos helped wake up apathetic people in order to save Jews from the Holocaust and helped save black people from lynchings, why can’t we do the same thing in an effort to save even more lives?
 
It all comes back to who America chooses to live for: God or man?
 
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful… My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139:13-16)
 
God is the Creator of all life. He knows the number of our days and He sustains all things.
 
We must support free speech rights, including those of the pro-life movement, and speak up any way we can to raise awareness about America’s ongoing holocaust.

    It is a dirty secret that those who profit from it don’t want unsuspecting women to know. Our sense of what’s right and wrong are to be dictated by our physicians, society, and our government. Our conscience is to be redirected so that we can be told what to do for the benefit of the elite. Without the direction of the Holy Spirit residing in us to standup for truth we are corrupted by the lies of this world system.

      AMEN!! You are so right Margaret! It is a disgusting shame that we are being silenced while those who believe in moral relativism are shaping our nation’s values. God help America, before it’s too late!

    I was fired in August 2011 from Penn State University for sharing my faith with a few coworkers who actually came to me with questions and topics. One coworker started a discussion about the phrase In God We Trust when he pulled a dollar bill out of his pocket and expressed his dislike of the phrase. Because I defended the phrase and talked about the faith of our founding fathers, I got reprimanded as he got loud and turned the conversation into a debate about same-sex marriage. It seems our nation is so over-protective of the sensitivities of gays, that we can no longer even discuss American history without getting into trouble.

    I have been trying for two years to fight this, with no luck. I have a document written by Penn State eight days before my termination which makes multiple references to my faith. Even so, no one will take my case and help me fight for religious discrimination. I filed on my own. The Pa Human Relations Commission denied my case, I appealed, and they denied it again. And the EEOC also denied my case siding with the PHRC. There is no justice in this country for Christians!

    It seems the only ones given freedom of religious expression today are Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Wiccans, etc. Christianity is deemed too offensive now in this multicultural, gay-affirming society. You could believe that a tree in your backyard was your god and discuss it openly today, and no one would do anything about it. You might even get a Nobel Peace Prize! But if a Christian discusses Christianity in relation to our nation’s history, the p.c. police rush to punish the so-called offender. I am so incredibly sick of the political correctness movement! It is truly destroying freedom of religion and free speech. If Christianity is driven out of America, what will become of our country? I shudder to think about it!
