Today Al Mohler reports a trend that is starting to take hold in the Atlanta area. My prayer is that it will spread. You can read the whole thing here. In short, Catherine Davis, The Director of Minority Outreach for Georgia Right to Life, has launched a massive public awareness campaign that is starting to stick.
Abortion providers, in particular, Planned Parenthood, are being called out for targeting blacks for abortion and thereby dramatically stunting the fertility rates of the African American community. As Catherine Davis tells the New York Times, “Let me put it this way . . . 18,870,000 black babies have been aborted since Roe v. Wade. If those babies had not been aborted, we would be 59 million strong — over 19% of the population.” She goes on to say, “The more I dug into it, the more vast I found that the network was and I realized that African-American women just did not know the truth, they did not understand the truth about the abortion industry.”
Abortion has been cast by secularists as a “personal choice.” Nothing could be farther from the truth. The decision to abort a child has physical, emotional, and spiritual repercussions that do not magically disappear when a woman walks outside those clinic doors. Moreover, far from being a personal choice, it is a decision that has broad social implicatons.
How ironic that the very thinking that presents itself as founded upon the championing of individual freedom is actually leading people right into the cruel arms of bondage. Freedom? I don’t think so. As a Christian, this article is a reminder that we must resist the temptation to be molded into the world’s thinking. Let the Absolute of God’s Truth as revealed in the Bible be your compass. That is freedom!
