Civil Disobedience, that’s where. LOUD. AUDIBLE. SIGH. I seriously cannot believe we are still having this conversation. And the candy store prolife groups are beside themselves. Anyway, let me explain.
Last July, Operation Save America did the unthinkable [to some] and the prolife movement went INSANE: A flash from the prolife past, a bonafide RESCUE. And it was GLORIOUS. After the unconstitutional FACE law was passed, no one wanted to pass over that imaginary line, and truly I don’t blame them. No one wants a felony on their record. But conversely, no one has really tried to push the envelope yet. So, OSA did the unthinkable and blocked an abortion mill’s entrance.
Social media went NUTS with their take on the rescue. And what I mean by ‘social media’ is the attack by Sidewalk Advocates for Life and Abby Johnson’s ‘And Then There Were None’. You know, if you don’t want to rescue, FINE. But telling everyone they’re wrong makes YOU prideful and no better than a proabort.
The Red Rose Rescue happened INSIDE of three abortion mills last Friday [Sept 15]. The prolifers that did this heroic act are veterans of the movement, some who actually rescued 35+ years ago. No schleps, just boots on the ground prolifers who trust God, not ‘law’.
In response to these recent Red Rose Rescues, a Sidewalk Advocate for Life member actually reposted this nonsense [in part]: “Most of the time these actions are justified by religion. People use the bible as their excuse,” read the rest here. Okay then, let me enlighten her because if she is at all a Christ follower, she would have NEVER reposted anything so blasphemous:
FIRST: Read, read again, and RE-READ Proverbs 24:11-12 because people tend to not read verse 12 that reminds us all that we will answer for what WE DO NOT DO.
SECOND: READ Proverbs 31:8-9. When the mother of Solomon wrote “Open your mouth for the speechless, in the cause of all who are appointed to die. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy“, she didn’t mention ANYWHERE to only do that on social media and fundraisers.
THIRD: Arise, and GO! Read the Book of Acts. If the Apostles and their disciples had followed the law, you’d be in a dark closet not able to pray, say the name of JESUS much less own a Bible: “We ought to obey God rather than men,” Acts 5:29. This entire Book of Acts is ALL about street ministry and how the Church is supposed to be TODAY.
And finally, calling these rescuers criminals? If rescuing those who don’t have a voice is criminal, then you have to apologize to slave owners and Hitler.
What’s CRIMINAL is killing unborn children. I sure am thankful you’re not protecting my life with that rhetoric and junk argument. No thank you.
