Americans know how to celebrate.  Taking advantage of peoples’ propensity to party,   party stores sit nestled in strip malls everywhere.  These establishments carry everything from birthday candles and streamers, to larger items like kid popular inflatables.  As a Country, we celebrate holidays such as the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Some recognize lesser known days like “National Talk Like a Pirate Day” and “National Pancake Day.”  Sadly, some choose to honor occasions deserving no recognition, days that threaten to trigger God’s Hand of Judgment on America.  One such day is today, March 10, “National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers.”

In a speech last year, the President beseeched God to “Bless Planned Parenthood.”  Pro-choice advocates claim abortion providers and organizations like Planned Parenthood administer a service God blesses.  However, pro-life individuals disagree.  They argue,

“How could the God who fashions together life in the womb bless those responsible for destroying it.”

And that’s a good question.  The answer is, He can’t.

According to the Washington Times,

Laws and regulations setting higher standards and operating controls for clinics have forced many abortion providers to shut down in Texas and other states, greatly reducing the availability of abortions in large parts of the country.

In Alabama’s largest city of Birmingham, the last two abortion providers are not operating.  This populous city earns the recognition of being “abortion free.”

This push against abortion rights rattles the pro-choice point of view.  Abortion advocates recognize stricter abortion laws means a curb in abortions administered.  Lives saved.  Common sense teaches that’s a good thing, right?  Even Democrats say abortion should be

“Safe, legal, and rare.”

The efforts to shut down shoddy and unsanitary abortion clinics helps Democrats recognize that goal, right?  Well, fewer abortions does mean lives saved, but also money lost.

In the New Testament in the Book of Acts, Paul casts a demon out of young slave girl.  Instead of her owners rejoicing over her deliverance from this demonic stronghold, they alleged to the authorities that Paul and Silas were advocating customs unlawful for the Romans to practice.  It was actually just a case of sour grapes.  The slave girl earned money for her owners by telling fortunes.  That ability ended when the demon fled from the girl’s life.  The owners cared little about her mental and spiritual health.  Her worth stemmed from the ability to make money, nothing more.  And the same sad reality applies to the abortion industry.  The life of the baby pales in comparison to the almighty dollar.  If that’s not the case why commemorate “National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers?”  Why else would the pro-choice crowd commemorate a culture of death?  It’s really not about choice, it’s about cash…at least for entities like Planned Parenthood.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”  Isaiah 5:20
