Two more mass shootings over the weekend in Ohio and Texas sparked another frenzy as liberals in the media renew their campaign for gun control. Others demand solutions to the mental health crisis, still others say shootings occur because of the alienation of young men today or fatherless homes. Progressive politicians – including former president, Barack Obama as well as many 2020 Democrat hopefuls blame President Trump. CNN and MSNBC concur, and falsely accuse Trump of promoting white supremacy.

There may be reasonable solutions to be considered and I don’t mean to oversimplify a very complicated issue, but few seem to suggest let alone address man’s greatest problem: sin. The heart of the matter is a matter of the heart.

In a culture where discipline and respect for authority is lacking, where people have bowed to the god of self-fulfillment, where narcissists abound, and where young people are coddled and not given healthy boundaries, it’s no wonder darkness and violence are increasing. 

But there is a natural and spiritual law that affects every human being, like it or not: you will reap what you sow. 

In the Old Testament of the Bible, the Prophet Jeremiah said, 

“The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; Who can understand it? “I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways, according to the results of his deeds. (Jeremiah 17:9-10)

One glaring problem in our society is the rejection of any fixed moral anchors with which to guide and govern people. Chaos and godlessness are the result. Another clear consequence of removing the one true God from public places is that the culture of death spreads like a disease. 

For example, abortion is the number one killer in the world today. More lives are eliminated under the guise of “choice” than from cancer, heart disease, accidents, and of course, gun violence. 

Planned Parenthood alone commits over 900 abortions every single day (that’s one death every 95 seconds) and as a whole, all abortion clinics, businesses, and providers in the U.S. commit about 3,600 abortions a day. 

…Solutions aren’t easy, but in the book of Ecclesiastes, one of the wisest men to have lived on earth put it this way: 

“The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)

Two of the main reasons you don’t really know about convicted murderer, Kermit Gosnell are, first, a complicit media covered-up the news and second, America has become apathetic about the abortion industry. At least Christians who are pro-life should care! For the moment, let’s set aside the debate about whether or not the act of an abortion is a sin. The Gosnell case has been described as a true-life saga of good vs. evil, deadly medical malpractice, systemic government corruption, and the devaluing of the most vulnerable in our society.

The movie, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, was released to theaters last Friday. I saw it, I recommend it, and though it is verbally descriptive, it is not graphic as you might think. But if we didn’t know that the writers got their information from actual court transcripts, police interviews, eye-witnesses, and FBI documents, the facts in this case would almost be unbelievable.

Tragically, not only is this a true story, but most likely there are many more clinics across the country similar to Kermit Gosnell’s house of horrors.

Since the liberal media refused to cover the trial, it’s no surprise they aren’t reporting on the movie debut. The producers of Gosnell were turned down by advertisers and also had to fight to get even a small number of reviewers to even look at the movie. So let’s be clear about this: the gruesome trial of an evil, warped man who killed at least one woman and murdered babies that had been delivered alive was not of interest to the media? Why? They are committed to protecting women’s so-called, “reproductive freedom.”

empty seats gosnell14Did you know the reason some reporters eventually had to force themselves to go to the 2013 murder trial? A photo was taken in the courtroom of dozens of empty seats that were reserved for the press!

Philadelphia abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell was convicted and is behind bars serving three consecutive life sentences for a decades-long murderous crime spree.

But why did this go on so long and how was he able to continue his horrific practice? He was protected by Democrats in the PA government.

This is a man who had untrained staff, including a fourteen year-old, administer drugs that would induce labor causing many women to deliver babies they came to the clinic to abort. Referred to as being “born alive,” the number of infants who were then murdered could be well into the thousands as Gosnell was in business for over thirty years.

Radicals on the left defend abortion at all costs seeing it as a sacrament to progressivism, “even if it means whitewashing its bloody, half-century legacy of mass genocide in our nation’s inner cities.”

CRTV host and author, Michelle Malkin writes:

Operating under the cover of providing “reproductive health services,” death doc Gosnell brutally executed hundreds of healthy, living, breathing, squirming, viable babies by stabbing them in their necks and severing spinal cords with scissors and knives. This twisted murderer kept newborn baby feet in specimen jars, which he crammed into the grisly refrigerators of his filthy “clinic” for “research.”

There are several major problems in this case that go beyond the abortion issue. First, Gosnell was a millionaire. He would stash away thousands of dollars in cash per day which apparently allowed him to purchase properties and even escape to the Bahamas during an investigation into his questionable abortion methods that sent many women to the hospital.

Second, the Pennsylvania Dept. of Health did nothing to stop Gosnell and worse, they looked the other way. His clinic was not inspected for seventeen years! Heck, even a hair and nail salon gets annual inspections by the Health Dept. According to the FBI investigation into the filthy Gosnell clinic, in 1993, the PA Dept. of Health decided to stop inspecting all abortion clinics unless there were major complaints! 

For purely political reasons, government agencies allowed Gosnell and others to operate with no accountability and oversight which put countless women at risk of infection, disease, and even death. And they have people believing they are the Party that cares about women’s health? Please.

Gosnell clinic staff used abortion instruments over and over again without sanitizing them, and due to the fact the procedure tables were not wiped down or cleaned after each patient, many women contracted STDs from the clinic. Ironically, the reason the police and FBI raided his abortion business was for illegal prescription drug abuse. Gosnell and his staff sold drugs to women for cash and even payed homeless people for their ID’s to then buy prescription meds.

Gosnell was never charged for his drug crimes, nor was he charged for women overdosing, nor were hospital complaints about his clinic followed up on, nor was he charged for allowing young and untrained clinic workers to perform procedures and also to administer anesthesia – which led to the death of at least one woman.

In 2015, a Philadelphia judge awarded the woman’s daughter $4 million in a settlement. She was with her mother at the clinic when she died. According to reports, Gosnell saved his very late or full-term abortions for Sundays, when only his wife would assist. Since he destroyed all those files, we will never know how many live, full-term babies he killed over the years.

So no, this movie is not just about the brutal act of abortion and the systemic problem of unlawful clinics. It’s about media malpractice, a calloused cover-up, evil being called good, and a nation that used to value human life but has generally become desensitized. Just because a court once decided abortion is legal does not make it moral – especially to God, the Creator of all life.  

Jesus Christ died so that we might live eternally; abortion kills so that some might live differently. Please send Democrats, the media, and Hollywood a message by sharing this article and by watching the Gosnell movie. It’s probably true that America will not resist abortion until America sees abortion for what it is.

This just in! Once again, researchers are thrilled about the possibility of life on Mars! Maybe. A recent report of water a mile underneath a slab of ice seemed to boost the odds of life on the red planet. One scientist from the University of Arizona stated if they did find life, it would be microbial, somewhere in the Martian crust.

My question is this: why don’t we use this same determined, scientific, optimistic approach to find human life on earth? We’re often told a heartbeat in a human mother’s womb is not a sign of life. Come on.

NASA’s John Grunsfeld commented on the report at a news conference:

“It suggests it would be possible for there to be life today on Mars,”

Researchers said in the journal, Nature Geoscience, that further exploration is warranted to determine whether microscopic life exists there. One of the lead scientists says the only way to know is to keep collecting rocks from Mars and doing soil analysis on the specimens. It is astounding and bewildering to me that scientists, university departments, NASA, and independent researchers have been studying for decades hoping to find evidence indicating any sign of a living organism on Mars.

What about human beings, and why all the confusion about a living, developing fetus in a mother’s womb? We know it’s certainly not just a clump of cells because dead things don’t grow!

Twenty-three chromosomes from the mother and twenty-three from the father are joined together at the time of fertilization. At this early point, the unique, genetic makeup of the individual is determined, and the terms “conception” and “fertilization” are interchangeable.

Please consider sharing some eye-opening information about a newly conceived baby:

  • Its DNA, everything she will grow into, was fully present at the moment of conception.
  • Her heart began to beat eighteen days after conception.
  • Her brainwaves were detectable forty days (six weeks) after conception.
  • Your baby could move and she could suck her thumb (and hiccup!) between six and seven weeks.
  • Eight weeks after conception, all of her major organs are developed.
  • A baby’s respiratory system begins to function, and she begins to breathe amniotic fluid at nine weeks
  • She can smile, suck her thumb, and clap at eighteen weeks.
  • A baby can feel pain at approximately twenty weeks gestation.

This last medical finding has led to what is called the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a U.S. Congress bill to ban abortions after twenty weeks, and especially late-term abortions.

A baby can feel pain, and a baby can feel joy. You may recall from the Gospel of Luke (1:43-44) when Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist said “the baby in my womb leaped for joy” when Mary visited her and was pregnant with Jesus. Since a fetus is in fact human, then destroying it is murder.

You may have heard the heartbreaking story earlier this year of 23 year-old Shelby Taylor who was recently sentenced to 25 years in prison for throwing her newborn baby girl into a dumpster – umbilical chord still attached. Someone heard the baby crying and called police, and fortunately the baby is alive today.

But wait a minute! Millions of young women simply pay Planned Parenthood to remove their babies and it’s completely legal. Please understand that when God’s law makes something immoral, man cannot make it moral.

I appreciate what author and teacher, Peter Heck said about this:

“But it is also impossible to read this story and not acknowledge a mind-bending and confounding reality: had Shelby Taylor entered a Planned Parenthood facility that very day and had her baby girl decapitated and dismembered for a price, our society would justify that as a moral right of empowerment and liberty. But since she waited a couple hours and, with as horrible as her act of callous abandonment was, still gave her child a fighting chance at survival, she is going to prison for 25 years. This is not just morally incongruent, it is the height of absurdity…”

You do know what they do with all the baby body parts after ripping them out of a mother’s womb, don’t you? If they’re not sold for research they end up in dumpsters outside abortion clinics. Or perhaps you’re in denial like so many people whose consciences have been seared by a hot iron.

What does Scripture teach? See Jeremiah 1:4-5, Exodus 21:22-24, Psalm 51:5, Psalm 139:13-16, Luke 1:39-44.

The Bible treats babies in the womb as real persons. Verse after verse relating to pregnancy always refers to a living human being already in existence. It is crystal clear that God considers the unborn to be human beings who have value and should be protected.

As far as life on Mars goes – no confirmation yet. It’s pretty foggy and we may be waiting for a while.

pro-life girls
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.

killing babies with scissors

By now, you’ve probably heard the news that late-term abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of three first-degree murder charges for killing live babies, and involuntary manslaughter of a woman who died at his Philadelphia clinic. Eye witnesses testified Gosnell killed hundreds of babies born alive over the years, but physical evidence was only available to prove three of them. This is a guy that kept baby feet in jars as trophies.

Will this case lead to regulations being implemented in one of the least regulated industries in America? Gosnell is certainly not alone when it comes to seedy backroom abortion operations, unsanitary conditions, and untrained staff.

Right under our preoccupied noses and all across America; hundreds of abortion “providers” are making a killing in their completely legal, government approved businesses. Many are just living the American dream. Yes, it’s true some take advantage of confused and scared young girls, but with the average price of an abortion being around $1,300 per customer, delivering death adds up to big profits.

Various sources confirmed Gosnell performed thousands of abortions over a 30-year career, and his practice alone netted him about $1.8 million a year, much of it in cash. Authorities found $250,000 hidden in a bedroom when they searched his house. Gosnell also owned a beach home and several rental properties. 

Prosecutor Ed Cameron said “He created an assembly line with no regard for these women whatsoever.” For obvious reasons, many of the youngest customers end up paying cash.

Is Gosnell the only twisted abortionist killing babies born alive? Are we so naive to think his clinic was the only one operating in such horrific conditions? 

Susan B. Anthony List President, Marjorie  Dannenfelser insists Kermit Gosnell is not alone:

“Exploitation of women and complete disregard for their health and well-being are problems endemic to the entire abortion industry. There are numerous examples of negligence and even death in abortion facilities across the country. Now is the moment to realize that abortion is neither safe, nor rare. Abortion is a brutal, painful procedure, both for the child that it kills and the woman that it wounds.”

Gosnell’s radical pro-abortion views, similar to President Obama’s, clouded his respect for life causing a blatant disregard for one of God’s most basic laws: Thou shalt not kill. Obama even said, “God bless Planned Parenthood” in a recent speech, fully supporting their ‘work.’ 

When abortion was legalized via Roe v. Wade in 1973, at least the court had an (extremely weak) excuse that there was some confusion over exactly when life begins. With modern technological advances such as ultrasound however, and the fact that science proves a human heart begins beating at six weeks, this argument holds no weight whatsoever!

And yet, abortions that are neither safe nor rare continue every minute in America under the guise of ‘reproductive freedom,’ and ‘women’s health.’ A baby is aborted every 26 seconds. The media does their part by withholding the gruesome details and facts about killing our own and calling it a ‘right’. They hide the truth in part to protect the Democratic Party (abortion is a money-making platform), and most of us carry on with our busy lives without batting an eye. 

Apathy has spread like a heartless disease throughout the United States. We have become desensitized to sin.

The root of this depravity is pure evil and goes against what the Bible teaches, but for the average abortion practitioner, it’s just another day at the office. Abortionists don’t care about morals. We cannot expect unbelievers to live according to godly values.

To them, the Ten Commandments are merely ten suggestions. Their consciences have been seared and they are simply accommodating the desires of a selfish, depraved society. In today’s culture, they call it “choice.”

To Gosnell, he was just doing his job; helping young women, even underage girls, dispose of the growing lives within them at any stage of development.

To the generous taxpayers of America, we’re just helping fund the cause by generously providing Planned Parenthood with $11 every second through our tax dollars totaling over a half a billion dollars annually. The biggest abortion business in America just eliminated two more human lives since you began this article. They perform one abortion every 94 seconds totaling more than 335,000 abortions a year.

If you only care about money and you have no regard for God, the Bible, and life in general, it was a brilliant plan – and the devil is full of them. This dark agenda of death began with Margaret Sanger in the 1930’s and 40’s, which I expose in my book, ERADICATE, in a chapter called, “Planned Parenthood’s Buried History.”

A majority of American citizens believe abortion is wrong, and even say there should be more restrictions placed on abortion, so what now? It’s been over 40 years since the legalization of the destruction of human life in a Mother’s womb, supposedly the safest place on earth.

What about the women who walk into abortion clinics? Some have stomachs the size of basketballs. Should they escape any scrutiny? Why don’t we hear more about those who decided to kill the precious life inside them?

The root of this tragedy is a much bigger problem; we have a hyper-sexualized, promiscuity-approving culture from Hollywood to government-run schools to the mainstream media. Sadly, some Christians are conforming.

We continue tolerating depravity in America often leading to death, and we vote for those who support it. We allow abortionists to play God – and most of us say nothing. If such an appalling case as Gosnell’s doesn’t cause more folks to speak up, I’m not sure what will.

every abortion clinic offends God

Did you ever think the media in America would get to the point where details, facts, and news about one of the most horrific killing sprees in recent history would be covered-up, minimized, or omitted altogether?

Here are just a few of the disturbing facts about Gosnell and his killing clinic:

    • The remains of 45 babies were found by authorities at the Philly clinic.
    • Gosnell preyed mostly on poor and minority women.
    • Flea-ridden cats defecated freely, including in procedure rooms.
    • One 41 year-old victim of a botched abortion, Karnamaya Mongar died because the clinic was so crammed with junk, it took paramedics 20 minutes just to find their way out.
    • Gosnell collected baby feet in jars.

The murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell has cemented forever the fact that the pro-choice media has chosen ideology and politics over journalism and doing their job.

By now, most Americans have witnessed the media’s blatant disregard for the truth. Many liberals in the media even admit they didn’t want to report on the Gosnell horror story because they felt it would hinder progress for abortion rights. It’s been well established, documented, and proven that the majority of both local and elite media have a liberal, progressive worldview.

This is not exactly a newsflash. Earlier this year, I began a series on media bias and began with research showing their complete lack of fair reporting on the abortion issue:

Approximately 83% of Americans feel abortion should have some restrictions placed on it by law, but only 3% of media elites do. Translation: the media often believe or support the exact opposite of the majority of citizens to whom they report the news.

We should now take it a step further and look at the primary reasons for their bias. Journalism’s first obligation is to tell the truth and its first loyalty is to citizens. The fact is the media is not interested in the whole truth if it doesn’t fit their narrative, and their loyalty and allegiance is to their political party, not to the people they supposedly serve and inform.

Most mainstream media outlets are operated by pro-choice liberals and a so-called ‘journalist’ is surrounded by coworkers that are loyal to the left. In addition, most would rather obey their liberal bosses instead of report the news fairly and honestly.

As children progress though government-controlled public schools, most get plenty of indoctrination from teachers who are loyal to their union, the government, and the Democratic Party. Naturally, kids end up repeating liberal talking points even if they don’t know why they believe what they say they believe.

Due to heavy influence and pressure from peers, culture, and those in authority, most of these young people end up supporting abortion. For those who choose journalism and go to college, they receive one-sided instruction from progressive professors. As a result, when they graduate from college and get a job in the news industry, they’ve been converted.

How do you suppose they’d report on the issue of Life when prominent Democratic politicians oppose most restrictions on late-term abortions? Do you think a young news reporter would want to admit the radical abortion views of their hero and president, Barack Obama, who once fought a law that would have protected babies delivered alive during an abortion attempt?

It’s not complicated.

With the truth about the Gosnell clinic finally being exposed, we see the media with their collective pants around their ankles.

They’d naturally hide the fact that during the trial, a former Gosnell assistant, Stephen Massof – who does not even have a medical license – described how he jabbed medical scissors into the backs of babies’ necks or snipped their spinal cords to kill them. Calling it a “beheading,” Massof stated, “It is separating the brain from the body.”

They’d obviously refuse to report that a young woman who worked at the Gosnell clinic as a teenager testified that she saw a baby’s chest continue to move even after the gruesome snipping procedure Gosnell used to end the baby’s life.

It should not take a conservative firestorm to hold the media accountable, but it does. During the Gosnell trial, concerned Americans and citizen journalists used blogs emails, Facebook posts, and a ‘Twitterfest’ to call attention to a tragic story that should break our hearts. The public deserves to know the truth, but in this day and age in America, we must actively demand it from the media.
