Column: A Call to Action on Behalf of the Preborn


Abortion Must Be Abolished: A Call to Action on Behalf of the Preborn
by James Silberman

“I think this is a lung, right?”

“Yeah, these are lungs, ‘cause that’s the trachea in the middle there.”

“So the intestines are here. Right here, see? This comes out, like I said, the organs come out really well.”

“This is a great placenta right here.”

“Do you ever see thymus?”

Watching Planned Parenthood employees discuss human dismemberment methods as they picked through the bloody pile of flesh and bone was like something out of a horror movie. For many, seeing with our own eyes the torn up bodies of these murdered children was the wake up call we needed to get off the sidelines and into the battle.

Tragically, Planned Parenthood isn’t the only opposition we face. In fact, here in Oklahoma, they’re not even the primary opposition we face. The abortion industry has little power here, with less than 20 percent of the legislature outwardly sympathetic to their Satanic cause. They don’t have the power to prevent abortion from being abolished in our state.

While Planned Parenthood is deserving of all the scorn and rebuke we can level at them, the battle in a state like Oklahoma, theoretically, should be easier than convincing abortionists and abortion supporters that abortion is bad. We have a supermajority of professing conservative Christians both in the State Government and among the people. The battle here is simply about getting professing Christians to obey God.

“Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.”

Jesus doesn’t say please. He makes authoritative commands. When he says “rescue those who are being taken away to death,” we don’t give excuses about “political realities” or soften the message by compromising. We obey.

Among the most important ways we can take action to save preborn children from ending up torn to pieces like the children in the undercover videos is demanding our State government repent of sanctioning their murder and provide them the equal protection of the law. Doing so should be a year-round project of each and every one of us engaging our State Senator, State Representative, and Governor, but one day a year, on the second Tuesday in February, we gather en masse as Oklahomans to make our collective voice heard.

On February 9th, if you are able, you must join us at the Abolition Day rally. That may seem a presumptuous assertion, but it is simply a proclaiming of the word of God. It is not based on my own authority I speak, but on His. You must join your brothers and sisters in rescuing those being taken away to death, demanding the State government obey God, and in demanding the abolition of this great evil of our age.

We will gather in front of the South side of the Oklahoma State Capitol on February 9th at 9:30 a.m. for a brief rally before entering the Capitol to speak with our legislators bring scripture’s commands to bear on our State government’s apathy and iniquity. We will call them to “cease to do evil, learn to good, seek justice, correct oppression, and plead the widow’s cause.” We will call them to stop spitting on the Constitution by denying the right to life and the equal protection of the law to our preborn neighbors.

Join us, and bring your family, friends, and church with you. The blood of those Oklahoman children already murdered cries out from the ground, and the soon-to-be-murdered desperately need our help. Their lives depend on it.

For those who are new to the Abolitionist Movement, here are some articles and videos about what we believe.
