Even though abortion is still technically illegal in Britain, the law has not been enforced for quite some time. This effort to decriminalize abortion has little to do with the law and more to do with creating a culture of abortion in Britain. If abortion were no longer illegal, providers such as BPAS (British Pregnancy Advisory Service) and Planned Parenthood would have free access to market their services. This would lead to abortion services being marketed to schools, women’s groups, and other public services.
The author of the article cited above said that perhaps some of the blame lies with doctors that oppose legalizing abortion but have remained silent. He also said “the church has also been largely silent.”
Perhaps British Christians should learn from our mistakes as it is currently reported that 29% of American evangelicals say abortion should be legal.
A story not quite as well-known as the baker from Colorado is the one of the Klein’s, bakers from Oregon. These Christian bakers found themselves in the middle of a national controversy for refusing to bake a cake for a homosexual wedding. In doing so they garnered the wrath of the state which found them guilty of violating anti-discrimination laws. The penalty for adhering to their religious convictions has been the loss of their shop, legal fees, and the possibility of a massive fine that could bankrupt them.
The Klein’s closed their successful bakery in 2013 in the face of legal issues surrounding their case. They decided to operate out of their home in order to be able to do business according to their religious convictions. But this family of 7 is facing bankruptcy as a result of a possible $150,000 fine from the state.
But now, an unlikely ally is coming to their aid and seeking to raise enough money to erase any fines and ensure the family business continues.
That ally is a gay man.
Remember the shocking report from the UK about aborted babies being burned as heating fuel? Another report has surfaced but this time the aborted babies are being used to heat places right here in the United States!
A report states:
“An Oregon county commission has ordered an incinerator to stop accepting boxed medical waste to generate electricity after learning the waste it’s been burning may include tissue from aborted fetuses from British Columbia.”
There you have it, aborted babies are marked as “medical waste” and used to heat homes. Can we really be shocked and surprised at such actions when Planned Parenthood continually tells us that unborn children are just a “clump of cells” or “blobs of tissue”? If they’re just cells and tissue why not burn them to heat homes? But our sensibilities and morals tell us otherwise. They tell us that burning the remains of murdered children is wrong. So we are justifiably angry.
An article at LifeNews.com carries the comment of one of the commissioner’s overseeing the factor where the incident is said to have occurred:
“We are outraged and disgusted that this material could be included in medical waste received at the facility,” said Commissioner Janet Carlson. “We did not know this practice was occurring until today. We are taking immediate action and initiating discussions with Covanta Marion to make certain that this type of medical waste is not accepted in the future.”
I’m glad she is “outraged and disgusted” with the incident. I have a feeling most people would be. The problem is that this is a result of the throwaway culture being created by abortion activists like Planned Parenthood. You can’t foster a respect for life that prevents these incidents while telling people it’s okay to kill their unborn children. The two are incompatible. So if we are really shocked and disgusted let’s take action against the groups responsible for creating the culture. Let’s end abortion once and for all.
