A Light in the Darkness of Abortion

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard signed a law this week requiring woman to wait at least 3 days after meeting with a doctor to have an abortion. This is the longest waiting period in the nation. About half the states have a 24-hour waiting period.

The measure also requires women to be counseled at pro-life Pregnancy Centers.

The Governor says, "I hope that women who are considering an abortion will use this three-day period to make good choices."

The Queen of "choice," Planned Parenthood and her Court, the unhonorable ACLU says, No. That's not the right kind of choice. We will sue.

So Planned Parenthood, who say they are about "choice" and the ACLU who claim they are about" rights," will sue to force women to make a hurried decision without all the information about alternatives to abortion.

I wonder why they are in such a hurry?

Kathi Di Nicola, head of Planned Parenthood in the three state region says Crises Pregnancy Centers are, "sham clinics set up to dissuade women from getting abortions."

Sure, any information that may cause someone to not get an abortion should be against the law.

But her most telling remark was this:

"Pregnancy Centers are often religiously motivated."

Religiously motivated?

Does Ms. Di Nicola have any idea who built the vast majority of hospitals in America? Look at their names. While Seattle may be an exception, most cities have Emanuel, St. Vincent, St. Elizabeth, Presbyterian, Southern Baptist, Adventist, Providence, Redeemer, Methodist... and the list goes on and on, all religiously motivated. In fact, motivated by the Christian faith. I have yet to see a hospital with Margaret Sanger's name on it.

And there are many hospitals that are "religiously motivated" although their name does not reflect it.

Avera McKennan and University Health Center in Sioux Falls, where Nicola's Planned Parenthood is located, is an example.

I have linked their introductory
video. It's what they think is most important for you to know about them. It's only 1:08 minutes. It's titled, "Caring For Life." Watch it.

As you watch it, note the cross on the wall behind the mother and her new born baby. And hear the lyrics of the music they have chosen. "...when all we could do was pray,"..."you have the power within you, granted from above..."

Ms. Nicola. When you become ill or slip and fall on the ice in Sioux Falls, you may not want to allow yourself to be admitted to that hospital.

I think they are religiously motivated.

Thank you, South Dakota, for being a light in the very dark world of abortion.

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. Be Discerning. Be Actively Pro-Life. Be Blessed.

  1. Excellent post Gary and thank you for the video - it's great.

    You make such a good point: if PP-lovers think religion - especially Christianity - is so bad, how do they explain all the hospitals and other good things we do with our money and time to help those who cannot help themselves? Moreover, how in the world can they make this charge with a straight face when their own commitment to others is so pitiful?

    We will never convince many of them. Some of them will be converted, but I believe most are so hardened that only the Lord can bring about the circumstances in their life where they will see the truth and be able to discern light from darkness and truth from error. But I am thankful to you for encouraging those of us in faith and freedom, life and goodness, and everything good that is what Christianity is all about!

    God bless and thanks for your work.

  2. Outstanding. Thank you so much.

  3. As I read this I felt I had walked into the sunlight. These are great thoughts and most inspiring.

  4. II Chronicles 7:14 says:
    "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

    Sounds to me like someone's been praying...

  5. You inferred that Seattle doesn't have a religiously planted hospital. There is a Providence Hospital in Seattle...and both of my children were born there.

  6. "The measure also requires women to be counseled at pro-life Pregnancy Centers"

    Why not just force them to meet with a pastor and cut out the middle men?

  7. Gale,

    I am a lefty. Like most liberals, I like to see correct grammar. Did you really mean to use 'inferred'? I believe 'implied' would have been correct grammar.
