The Engaging Essentials

Planned Parenthood Unmasked – Live Action Films, and Lila Rose, continue to pull the mask off the face of Planned Parenthood.  What’s beneath is nothing much to look upon, but you need to know how to respond to the “exaggerated misstatements” PP is offering after getting caught in wrongdoing.

The Shifting Political Beliefs of Catholics – Michael Gerson observes what we might learn from the changing political mind of Catholics in Congress.

What the Bible Says About Sex . . . Really? – Does the title from Dr. Al Mohler really need any further elaboration?

99 Balloons – Every innocent human life is worthy of respect and recognition.  This family lived it out (grab your tissues):

The Engaging Essentials

Look like this Engaging Essentials edition will be all about the issue of life.  Just happens to be what I’m reading these days.

Feminism and the Dilemma of ‘Reproductive Justice’ – Al Mohler looks at a most critical problem for the feminist movement, namely that, in some countries, they are aborting the next generation at such a rate there will be no feminists to press for equality in the future.  Here’s the critical quote:

Their feminist ideology does not even allow them to acknowledge that sex-selection abortions are perfectly legal in the United States, and that feminists have insisted that any woman has a right to an abortion at any time for any reason or for no stated reason at all. The pro-abortion ideology is so extreme that any opposition to the targeting of girls by sex-selection abortion is undermined by the movement’s enthusiasm for unfettered abortion rights.

$300,000,000 + Planned Parenthood = 134:1 – Need me to interpret? Planned Parenthood gets $300+ million of your tax dollars every year for “family planning services.”  They use that to subsidize their moneymaker: abortion services.  But, they say that part of their “family planning” is to refer to adoptions.  Well, stats tell us that for every 134 abortions that Planned Parenthood committed, they referred only 1 adoption.  For those keeping at score, that 324,008 abortions and 2,405 adoptions.  In other words, the unborn that enter the Planned Parenthood league have a .007 “batting average” of living.

Obama Admin to Stop Keeping Abortion Stats – Looks like your score sheet is going to be useless before long.  The CDC is slowing, if not stopping, their practice of tracking abortions in the U.S.

Abortion Up, Except Where Pro-Lifers Are – Though, nationwide, the abortion numbers are up, in those areas where the pro-life movement is the most active, the numbers are in decline.  Be motivated.

The Engaging Essentials

Hey, remember me?  When the legislative session is in full-swing, as it is right now in WV, it’s a bit difficult for me to maintain my faithfulness to this intentionally irregular series I like to call, “The Engaging Essentials.”  Alas and alack, it must be what it is.  But, for today at least, here’s a bit of what you should be reading:

Chick-Fil-A Locked in Epic Battle – Well, that’s they way the story is being reported, anyway.  What is the pro-cow, pro-family outfit accused of this time?  Helping to strengthen marriages.  Wow.  And to think, just this weekend I had a big, fat helping of “anti-gay Jesus Chicken” (I can’t make this stuff up!) at my local CFA.

Why Regulate Abortion Mills? – Kermit Gosnell, that’s why.  Gosnell is the back alley, rusty coat hanger abortion doc that the pro-choice always laments.  The only difference, of course, is that Gosnell was legally conducting the “safe and rare” practice of abortion to the tune of millions of dollars, thousands of dead babies, and several dead women.  Shameful.

In His Own Words – Pastors, please take note: this example by Dr. Al Mohler is how we are asking you to use your prophetic voice in speaking Biblically for life, marriage, and religious freedom.  Here, Mohler takes on the pro-abortion statement of our President as he marked the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

ADF and Separation of Church/State – Have the great wall tearing down attorneys at the Alliance Defense Fund capitulated to the idea of separating church and state?  Hardly.

Stand for Life – Lila Rose of Live Action fame offers this moving challenge to the pro-life community.  Watch and share:
