Ep. 13 – Join the Fight to End Abortion
Abortion is arguably the hottest topic to discuss today, and rightfully so. Two videos went viral recently about new abortion laws in New York and Virginia that would increase access to abortions.
On this episode, we looked at an article by Josh Wester for ERLC, titled, “Another Abortion Video Goes Viral: Virginia and the Repeal Act,” which summarizes what’s going on today regarding new abortion laws. Let’s take a look at what’s going on and seek the truth together.
Quotes from Josh Wester’s Article for ERLC
“This week, a second video about abortion went viral. But instead of New York, this one was from the general assembly in Virginia. The video features a Democratic member of the Virginia House of Delegates offering comments in defense of proposed legislation that would dramatically expand abortion laws in the commonwealth.”
“Abortion advocates once called for abortions to be ‘safe, legal, and rare.’ But the goalposts have moved. We now live in an age where women are encouraged to ‘shout’ their abortions.”
“Polling shows that young adults are more likely than other demographics to support abortion restrictions, including the gradual implementation of pro-life legislation. These efforts to expand access to abortions in New York, Virginia, and elsewhere do not necessarily represent the future or a permanent trajectory.”
“Those committed to the cause of life, who would see this dreadful movement reversed, must continue to work and pray. Advancing the cause of life takes many forms, from voting in elections to supporting crisis pregnancy centers. It includes showing up at city council meetings and cultivating churches that are prepared to receive and care for women, children, and families in need. It means showing the love of Christ and being a neighbor.”

Abortion can be a complicated subject; however, most of the time, it’s not complicated at all. Simply put, abortion is murder.
This is the sound from the NY Senate chamber after the 38-24 vote to:
– Add abortion to the NY Constitution
– Allow non-physicians to commit abortions
– Allow abortion through third trimester
– Repeal protections for surviving babies

It’s important to dig beneath the surface of abortion and think about its process fundamentally.
Heartbreaking… This isn’t in New York, this isn’t in California, this happened just this week right here in Virginia. @VAHouseDems proposed legislation to provide abortions up to just seconds before that precious child takes their first breath. Watch for yourself. pic.twitter.com/AxgPVyI6kU

God has access to babies during pregnancy. John the Baptist was “filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb” (Luke 1:15).
