The Next Level -- "Abortion Proud"

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

Washington state Democratic congressional candidate, Darcy Burner, gave her audience last week what she called a "winning strategy".

The strategy?

She is calling women to embrace and promote the concept of being not just pro-choice, but "abortion proud."

Move over "Gay Pride" month. Perhaps there should be some equality and June should also be, "Abortion Pride" month.

Or should July be proclaimed as "Abortion Pride" month in keeping with the freedom and independence theme?

Burner is advocating that women "come out " (her words) and not only admit they have had an abortion, but to project pride in their decisions.

She told her audience, "This is how we change the stories in people's heads, we need to make it okay to come out about the choices that we've made."

Is this similar to the "conversations" homosexual activists, such as Sen. Ed Murray and others are advocating and having with folks, hoping to change the stories in their heads about homosexual "marriage"?

I often receive scolding emails from abortion activists, telling me they are not "pro-abortion," they are "pro-choice."

Conservative blogger Melissa Clouthier attended Burner's meeting. She said the spirit in the room was one of celebration of abortion.

She said, "It was clear...that abortion itself was elevated as something good and something to be celebrated."

It seems yet another word is being hi-jacked in the attempt to remake America and our culture.

"Courage" once described someone who had served their country or their community or the needs of someone else. Now it has become the word of choice in describing "me," "mine," and "my" rights and preferences.

"Courage" is often used to describe those who advocate for the most deviant and destructive behaviors.

Words are powerful. That's why it is written, "Let no one deceive you with empty words..." Why? "Because of these things the wrath of God comes upon you, the sons of disobedience" ( Ephesians 5:6).

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.
