A local Planned Parenthood abortion business in California is copycatting the 40 Days for Life campaign, which recently resulted in saving the lives of more than 700 unborn children from abortion. The abortion business has set up its own 40 Days of Prayer for the local abortion center.
“We trust you to decide about your sexuality, having your children, and planning your family,” says a flier promoting the Humbolt County Clergy for Choice event. “We are religious leaders who value all human life. We accept that religions differ about when life begins. We are here to help.”
“We believe that human life is holy. That’s why we believe in your right to choose to be a parent or not,” the pro-abortion religious leaders continue. “It can be helpful to talk with friends you trust, with licensed counselors, and with whatever religious person you choose. Humboldt County Clergy are available to talk with you about the spiritual aspects of choice. Find out more by calling Six Rivers Planned Parenthood.”
* “Day 40: Today we give thanks and celebrate that abortion is still safe and legal.”
50 million plus children might have a different definition of “safe”. This kind of reminds me of the Devil quoting scripture. He knows the words, but when it comes down to it really doesn’t understand them and this Planned Parenthood follows suit.
It is interesting that unlike the campaign “40 Days for Life” they have to go with “40 Days of Prayer” since they really can’t mention what they are praying for. They add the subtitle “Supporting Women Everywhere” which is equally vague.
Mostly though what this situation calls for is for the Prophet Elijah. He ran into a similar circumstance himself. “How long will you go limping with two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal then follow him.” The god of ardent abortion believers is not the God of “For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother’s womb.”, but a god more resembling Moloch. So that life might be made “easier” a child is sacrificed on the altar of the cold steel table. Elijah simply would not play Baal with them.
Elijah proposed a test to the priests of Baal and the priests of Asherah on Mt. Carmel. His proposal concerned a test of prayer where he allowed them to pray first and call down fire for their sacrifice. They prayed and prayed to no avail. They started to pray more and to cut themselves again to no avail. Elijah ups the ante by pouring water on his own sacrifice three times.
“O LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. Answer me, O LORD, answer me, that this people may know that thou, O LORD, art God, and that thou hast turned their hearts back.”Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt offering, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.”
So let us propose a similar test of prayer with the “40 Days for Life” and the “40 Days of Prayer” campaign. One metric on the pro-life side is abortion clinics closed. So if their prayer if really efficacious than their prayer should result in more abortion clinics open. Another metric on the pro-life side is the number of mothers who decided to be open to life and no go through with the abortion. Planned Parenthood can hardly boost of the number of dead babies of those saved from the mother not changing her mind.
