The main stream media frothed this week when news came to light an American big game hunter killed a lion in Zimbabwe. The outrage of animal lovers forced the man into hiding, shuttering his successful dentist practice in the process. Even the Obama Administration took note and suggested a federal investigation might be in order. “Cecil the Lion” trended for over 24 hours on Twitter with some calling for the hunter’s death. The other news dominating social media and Conservative news sites was the revelation Planned Parenthood hawks the remains of aborted babies to the highest bidder. Using strong arm tactics, the abortion giant effectively silenced the main stream media, urging restraint in exposing their heinous practices.
Now a federal judge has ordered the Center for Medical Progress to cease the release of these videos. The National Abortion Federation sought a California’s judge aid in stopping the release of further videos, citing “irreparable injury” if posted. The producer of the video expose’ shared that future posts suggest Planned Parenthood occasionally sells fully intact bodies of babies for the purpose of “medical research.” No wonder the National Abortion Federation scrambled to secure a gag order. For whatever reason, our Country’s loudest voices would rather crucify a hunter than protect the most innocent.
A host of Americans have swallowed a lie. At some point, a philosophy’s been taught that the “King of the Jungle” deserves a greater amount of protection than a human life developing in the womb. Maybe it started in the Garden of Eden when the Serpent posed the following question,
“Did God really say?”
Psalm 139 stands as one of the most pro-life passages in the Bible. The Psalmist writes,
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb, I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body.”
Of course those who claim no belief in God disregard the words of an ancient book and trumpet vociferously for a woman’s right to choose. “Healthcare” facilities like Planned Parenthood stand with women and tightrope walk around the word “baby” when a woman visits for pre-abortion counseling. In the public eye, abortion advocates soften abortion by using terms like “fetus,” “clump of cells,” “tissue” and even “tumor.” However, behind laboratory doors, technicians refer to the remains as “a baby” and “it’s another boy.” Apparently, they side with the Bible as well.
Hopefully, the barbaric practices of Planned Parenthood have awakened the pro-life lion. And hopefully soon, this lion’s roar drowns out the roar and the legacy of a lion named Cecil. If not, may God have mercy on America’s soul.
