Joe Biden. Current vice-president of the USA. His statement in defense of the unborn: “My Catholic faith believes life begins at conception. . . but. . . I refuse to impose that view on others.”
See Biden’s statement here, Biden believes that the child in the womb, from the time of conception is human life. Biden believes the unborn are human life, abortion is the killing of that [human life], thus Joe Biden believes abortion is the killing of human life.
Keep this tidbit in mind during the following scenario:
1940 – mid-holocaust. Jews are escorted into gas chambers. Thousands – millions – of women, men, and children.
John Nance Garner (vice president of the USA between 1933-1941) and his defense of the minorities – “My view is that [Jews, Christians, and the disabled] are human life . . .but . . . I refuse to impose that view on others.”
What’s the difference between this hypothetical (inconceivable) statement by the vice president of the United States of America in 1940, and the statement made by our current VP?
Both state a belief in human life, and both refuse to “impose their views on others.” Is that moral? Is that justice? The statement made by John Nance Garner, I am relieved to tell, is 100 percent made up. The statement by Joe Biden is – less relievingly – 100 percent not made up.
Maybe Joe doesn’t know what he’s saying – but probably he does, and his reasoning is as logical as a spider-teasing-frog-puppy. . . You, Mr. Biden, believe wholeheartedly that the unborn are humans, yet you don’t think it’s your place to impose that on others? That doesn’t add up. I’d understand if the issue were regarding saving watermelon rinds for the wholesome stiffening of ones erythrocytes, or the endorsement of Smileys lollipops – “I believe the rainbow lolly to be the finest lolly in the western hemisphere. This is my belief… but… I refuse to impose it on others.” – I can live with that Mr. vice president. But Joe, these are not lollipops, or watermelon rinds – these are human beings, and your willful neglect of what you believe to be a human being is, frankly, incomprehensible.
Biden believes the unborn are human beings, that life begins at conception. . . this would infer that – as the Declaration of Independence says – he believes they are created equal, and have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But, for political agendas – because he’s a coward (forgive me, but this is a troubling strain of information) – the man refuses to stand up for over 50,000,000 babies killed in the USA over the past forty years. Wouldn’t want to impose. . .
But what about Christians. Are we going to be Joe Biden? Personally believing that whole generations are being wiped out, but not having the courage to stand up for what we believe, for the truth.
Don’t pretend to care about the unborn – that doesn’t help. God’s word calls us to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 31:8). It’s our duty to take part in looking out for our fellow man. God calls it loving thy neighbor as thyself. Don’t worry if you aren’t having cozy feelings of compassion – God will give you all you need. Don’t fret if you have little reserves in the courage barrel – God will give it.
Sorry to rain on your parade Nazi tyrants, but you don’t get to kill millions of people because your demon-possessed mind thinks it’s right. You will be held accountable. Because all are created equal.
You’re in a concentration camp in 1940. Out of the two statements in bold, which do you want to hear?
Hmm. That’s a tough issue. . . I don’t want to get . . . it’s not my place, I mean the holocaust – yeah – I disagree, but who am I to say it’s wrong? There are millions over in that country who think it’s okay. I can’t impose on their views.
Please, think about this.
If you think comparing the holocaust to abortion is extreme, then. . . well, I tend to agree with Ben Shapiro that “facts don’t care about your feelings”; however, in this instance, the facts will give you feelings. The truth about abortion is ugly and sick. Whenever institutionalized evil is backed by public support, all is on the table as far as corruption, and the disease spreads.
Ah yes, the boy in the picture. That’s Hans. I was reading about Hans; let me tell you about him. At the age of 6 his family was dodging Nazis, so they applied for visas to the USA and were accepted, but were put on a waiting list before they got on a ship. During this time, his dad was imprisoned, and his mom became ill and could no longer take care of him. Hans was placed in a children’s home with 40 other Jewish kids. They did kid stuff, swam, and hiked. But the “kid stuff” was short lived, it wasn’t long before the Nazi’s caught up. Hans was murdered on April 15, 1944, at the age of ten, along with the other children from the home.
Hans was killed because a movement of people sincerely believed him to be a lesser human being. Would you have stood against the movement? Or are you a “silent protester” – which is no protester at all.
If you believe the unborn are human beings, then here are two options: renounce that belief, or stand up for the unborn. But no fakers. Kids like Hans don’t need fakers. The book of James says that faith without works is dead. Meaning, to say you believe in something, and you are not driven to action by that belief, this infers that you don’t believe in what you proclaim to believe. If you love your friend, then you hang out with them. If you love God, you spend time with Him. If you love your spouse, you buy them snacks. If your child is drowning, rock or not, you jump in and try to save them – because you love your child. If you believe the unborn to be humans in the eyes of God, then you will do something.
Things you can do about abortion (Let’s call it the 4 P’s):
- Pray. Prayer changes things. Real prayer changes things. Fervent prayer. Honest prayer. Humble prayer.
- Post. In short, start doing something remotely productive with all the time spent on social media. Share pro-life videos, loving pro-life proclamations, articles that proclaim the truth. Yes, people will hate you for it – but this is good! God’s word says to rejoice when we endure hardships in the name of Jesus.
- People. Talk to people, and engage in productive debate. Be wise, and enter into these conversations with the Holy Spirit. Some may be more productive than others. Remember to love people who oppose you, they are humans too.
- Pay. We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help. You can always give to organizations that’s on the front lines of defending the unborn. Though being asked to give $ is a hallowed exhortation, it helps. Don’t shy away from little opportunities to help.
Little steps in the right direction mean a lot when compared with little steps in the wrong direction. Every thing you do counts and is part of a change that will make the aborting of our little boys and girls a thing of the past.
