Wicked Commentary

                                                       

Let me tell you a short story about a man named Bill. It begins in January 1973. This is the year that the U S Supreme Court rules that the child in the womb is not a human being and therefore denied the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as guaranteed under the Constitution.

Bill like many other Christians is too busy with his own life to be concerned about the impact this is going to have on his nation.

This is the same month that his oldest daughter gets married. The marriage lasts only five weeks and needless to say, the daughter is devastated.

In late 1974, Bill’s daughter meets a young man who himself is a victim of a broken marriage. The two announce to Bill and his wife that they are going to live together outside the bonds of matrimony. Does that sound familiar to any of you?

In early 1975, the inevitable happens.  Bill’s daughter announces that she is pregnant. She has decided also that regardless of the outcome of her relationship with the father, the child will be born. On Thanksgiving Day of 1975, Bill and his wife become the proud grandparents of a beautiful baby boy.

Bill continues with his busy life and in 1980 he attends a training session at Colorado State University. While in Ft. Collins he is invited to see a film called “Assignment Life”. The film is about abortion and actually shows you a suction aspiration procedure being performed on a young woman.  When Bill sees the pieces of the little arms and legs passing through the vacuum tube, he literally comes unglued. All during the procedure the abortionist refers to the body parts as contents of the womb or products of conception.

He comes home from Ft. Collins and shares the experience with his wife, and they decide to get involved in the Pro-Life movement. However, it isn’t until five years later that they start to give financial aid to a home for unwed mothers.

It is now early 1989 and Bill has been retired for two and one half years. The Holy Spirit is constantly hammering away at Bill’s conscience to get actively involved in the battle against abortion. He finally realizes after fourteen years that his daughter could have had an abortion thus depriving him of the joy of being a grandfather.

Bill heeds the call and stayed active in the Right-to-Life Movement until 2007 (?) when age and health problems forced him to retire.

If you haven’t guessed it by now, I’m Bill.

Epilogue:

The grandson is 37 years and the father of three girls and one boy.

To date about fifty-four million babies (products of conception and contents of the womb) have had their lives snuffed out by the women’s right to choose movement.

It’s only a matter of time before God lifts his covering hand from America if this infanticide  continues.

  1. I’m reminded here, Bill, of the charge that America is awful because it allowed slavery. What’s lost is that it was America that across its fruited plain and from sea to shining sea ENDED slavery. Around the globe slavery continues.

    As of the last time — probably a decade ago — that I read such statistics the average Russian woman would during her lifetime have six abortions. In America it might be 0.05.

    I’m wondering — just wondering — why God would lift “his covering hand from America” in particular. Just wonderin’.

    • Just for the record, Bill, I have asserted on my blog and elsewhere that abortion is murder except in the case of a pregnancy which puts the mother’s life in serious jeopardy, that because the mother has an unalienable right to self-defense of her unalienable right to life.

      Parenthetically, I’m conflicted in the case of a pregnancy resulting from rape.

      Roe was and remains bad law.

        • Thanks, PBR. I think that I new that Roe v. Wade was a decision by the Supreme Court of the United States, and that a holding of said decision was that a woman has a “right to privacy” translated to mean that the decision vis-a-vis whether or not to abort a fetus in residence was solely her’s.

          Since that publication, said holding has been law of the land, and as I said and now iterate “was and remains bad law.”.

      Dr. Pete! Thanks for coming over. The Issue for me is what’s happening here. God has blessed America when it was established on Judeo- Christian principals. We are slowly going down the road to the same fate as the Greek and Roman Emprtes. As a Christian I can see God lifting his covering and blessings if we continue.

      Thanks again. Your impute is appreciated.

    Willi,

    Such an inspirational story I have cold chills and wet eyes. Abortion is my number one HOT topic and I would go on a rant…no…actually a rage for pages and pages filled with words that wouldn’t exactly be very nice for others to read. Legalizing abortion in this country is the biggest mistake and un-Godly act that has ever occurred in our nations history. How can we even espouse to be a nation that is any different from the most brutal and Satan like country in the world when we allow the murder of our unborn children? Just because it was decided a woman has a right to choose?? This is most despicable, beyond reproach, disgusting and pure evil that was set loose in our Christian found nations history! Satan is alive and doing very well now in the United States of America…

      Thank you Dave for coming over. Your response was very touching. I was active in the Pro-Life movement for a number of years until my “get up and go” “got up and went”.
      Planned Parenthood (PP) had their referral clinics strategically located near the High Schools in the Denver Metro Area. A girl could go out on her lunch break to a clinic and get a ride downtown to the PP clinic, have her abortion, and no one would be the wiser.

      I frequently joined the picket group at the downtown clinic until one day I saw a mother, her pregnant daughter, and the grandchild go into the clinic to have the grandchild’s brother or sister aborted. It was more than I could handle so I restricted my picketing to a referral clinic near a local high school.

      I have been cursed, had missiles thrown at me, and one day a guy in a pickup truck tried to scare me. In stead he rammed a telephone pole and caved in the front end of his truck. He then gets this real sheepish grin on his face while he’s waiting for the wrecker.
      Poetic justice? Hmm!

      ‘ooRah! ☺

  4. Willibeaux,
    That essay really spoke to my heart. Thanks for writing it.

    For the left to suggest that abortion is a “right” granted in the Constitution is simply insane. Frankly I am pleased that this administration has brought this issue to the forefront of our nation’s debate over social issues.

  5. Like you, Willibeaux, I think I saw the exact same film, or one close to it any way. (I also saw info relative to a saline abortion.) To this day I want to throw up every time I think about it. Your daughter deserves KUDOS for giving birth to your Grandson. Now that’s inspirational.

    Unlike DrPete, I have to wonder if the Lord hasn’t already lifted his covering hand and we are seeing the results today.

    • Mrs. AL,

      I fall down on your side wondering if the destruction of our nation that we are currently witnessing is not already due to the fact we are no longer covered by our Lord’s protective hands…I have to wonder why would they be?

      Like

    • If I stop, Mrs. AL, to wonder — and that’s a hypothetical, because I won’t — I’ll likely contemplate whether God — rather than lifting a covering hand — will be casting an interested eye to see whether people pre-endowed with unalienable rights cherish that gift sufficiently to protect and defend it from those who would plunder and, thus, save it.

      Mrs. Al! Thanks for coming over. There is a saline abortion survivor by the name of Gianna Jensen (Sp) who travels around the country and gives her testimony. She has forgiven her mother even though she suffers from cerebral palsey as a consequence of the botched attempt to kill her.

    Willi,

    Excellent article, and thanks for your efforts. You never know how they have helped. The thing that always gets me is about the political strategy of the left. At every issue they make every attempt to personalize it and destroy their opposition, or the messenger. But a strange thing happens when pro-lifers personalize the abortion issue – which it naturally is any way. (I digress) When you talk about each single baby, the protection of life afforded in our Constitution, and the ability of the left to excuse baby killing in a blanket of political rhetoric or an individual basis, from conception all the way to preventing the birth last minute, the left becomes unhinged and furious and cries foul. So on a case-by-case basis they keep ignoring the Constitution and natural law, and those millions don’t bother the left in the least bit. A football player makes an anti-abortion statement telling his personal story and they go spastic. Then the loony left, and even some Republicans, say its just one of those “controversial” and “divisive issue”. Simply amazing!

      Bull! Thanks for coming over! Your comments are right on target. My experience with the pro-aborts usually ended up with the following BS questions:

      1. How many unwanted children have I adopted?
      2. Am I willing to give the mother thousands of dollars to raise the child?
      3. Why am I butting on a woman’s issue?

      My response was usually “are you saying that the baby’s right to life is based on my adopting it or paying the mother thousands of dollars to raise the child”?

      That usually ended the conversation.

      ‘ooRah! 😉

    There are two types of argument that bother me.(both used frequently) First the comparisons of pro-life principles to the death penalty. There are differences that would be self-evident to most pro-lifers. The other is when people say it is a Holocaust I cringe. Sure there are many parallels, but I think the Holocaust should be reserved specifically for that. So does abortion have its place. Other words like genocide which work equally well. To keep applying the term Holocaust too loosely sort of desensitizes the word. I know some may disagree but that is my view.

  10. Excellent Willibeaux. My heart is torn daily at the abortion rate. We have a local pastor who stands on the sidewalks of these “death mills” as he calls them, to try & save babies, & he has & he does. I also see the glorious hand of God being lifted…..He is so patient…… but then, we could get into our administration & turning our backs slowly away from Israel….
    that is where my heartbeat is….
