Wisdom Wednesdays - Baby Murders - What can I do?



image from wikimedia.org via Bing

 Are you horrified and broken-hearted over the news of the murder and dismemberment of babies by Planned Parenthood? I am, and I'm also very angry.


This quote says it better than I could  --   "Perhaps the question in the Planned Parenthood debacle should not be whether the body parts were sold or donated. Perhaps the question should be whether killing any living being with hearts, lungs, and livers large enough to be harvested really should be legal. I really don't care if the corpse was sold or "donated." I care that a life became a corpse in the first place. Because killing healthy, vibrant babies in the womb and using their lungs and hearts for "scientific" research sounds more like something one should read about at a Holocaust site then something that should happen in the 'land of the free and the home of the brave.'"

Gail-Friends, there is a time for righteous anger, and this is it.  It's not enough to be angry.  It is time to take action.  I read this passage earlier today, and felt great conviction:


Speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves,
    for the rights of all who need an advocate. 
 Speak up, judge righteously,
    defend the cause of the poor and the needy.
Proverbs 31:8-9

Please don't sit by and do nothing.  I don't want to stand before G-d one day and say that I didn't do anything to stop these torturous murders.  Here are some things we can do:
  1. Pray - first and foremost.  Ask G-d to move on the hearts of those involved in these horrible crimes.  Pray also for the women affected by these murders. (Are you aware that women who abort their children suffer a form of PTSD, along with depression and anxiety?) Pray for our elected officials to take action to stop this. Pray for them all to repent and turn to G-d and His ways.
  2. Call or e-mail your governor and ask him to cut off any state funding of Planned Parenthood and any other abortion clinic..
  3. Call or e-mail your elected officials.   This link will direct you to the president, your senators, and your U.S. House representatives.   https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials
  4. Use Twitter,  #defundplannedparenthood ― so you can help drive the national momentum.  
  5. Speak out on Facebook.  The National Right to Life organization has a Facebook page that shares information that you can post on your Facebook page to keep the issue front and center.
  6. Sign a petition: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/order-attorney-general-investigate-planned-parenthoods-sale-aborted-baby-parts-2
  7. Stand on the street corner with signs in protest of the murder of babies  (Were you aware that there were nation-wide protests all over the US on Tuesday of this week?  Probably not, because the media doesn't cover those things very often.) UPDATE 8-21-14  -- Protests against Planned Parenthood will be held all over the country on Saturday, 8-22-14.  You can find a protest near you at this link:  http://protestpp.com/protests/  And if there's not one near you, make a sign "DE-FUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD" and stand on the street corner.
  8. Support organizations that help pregnant women to deliver their babies, and then have the babies adopted.
  9. Support your local adoption agencies. (Are you aware that many faith-based groups will be shut down now because of their stand against same-sex marriage? )
  10. Encourage families to adopt children.
  11. Share these action items with your rabbi / pastor and encourage him to share them with the congregation. 
  12. Another action items is detailed on this POST. (September 16,2015)
  13. SHARE THIS POST ON FACEBOOK OR YOUR OWN BLOG.

We, as citizens of a free country, have the privilege of being a part of the political process.  We also have freedom of speech.  We are responsible before G-d for taking action.  I often hear Yeshua's quote, "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and render unto G-d what is G-d's" like that is an excuse for being silent.  Yeshua was talking about paying taxes.  The Jews of that time did not live in a country that had a representative government and a voice in decision making.  We do, and we are responsible to do all we can.




Are you aware that 55 MILLION babies have been aborted just since Roe v Wade was passed?  I encourage you to let your voice be heard for the little ones.  I'm not asking you to do anything I haven't done myself. The opposite side is loud and proud, and they work very hard to keep their right to murder and maim little babies.  Please pray for and stand on the side of the little ones until abortion is outlawed in America.

    1. Your friend is right, Pamela. It's a dark period of America's history that I pray will end very soon. As horrible as this PP story is, it has brought the reality of baby murders to the forefront and made people see it for what it is.
