We saw a post yesterday regarding ministry leaders taking the covid vaccine. Also note they do preach a prolife message at their church. In part, their post regarding the vax said: “…the choice as to whether or not to take the vaccine is personal. If you decide not to take it because of concerns about how the vaccine was produced or how quickly it was made available, that decision is yours to make.”
WOW. It did not sound like it made one bit of difference to them if aborted people are involved in “how the vaccine was produced.”
Why would anyone claiming to be PROLIFE take a vaccine that has or may have aborted fetal cell lines in it or used to test it? One argument says that the aborted person was from the 70’s or 80’s. THAT is NOT an argument but a justification.
So ask yourself, if you believe in the argument above, if the aborted person were 50 years old or 5 minutes old, is that a reasonable justification for the vaccine and using cells derived from an aborted person AT ALL? If the vaccine was using aborted fetal cell lines for any reason, they are creating NEW CELLS from an aborted person from decades ago. Does that sound reasonable to you?
It is saddening and maddening that anyone would say they are prolife [and particularly in ministry] would justify this inane argument.
There isn’t any conundrum. If you are anti-abortion and/or prolife, using the cells from any aborted person is wrong. Period.

Interesting Letters to the Editor of the Columbus Dispatch regarding abortion in the last couple of days. A rebuttal letter is after this…whatever it is. If this does not prove that abortion and it’s purveyors and advocates aren’t insane, then YOU aren’t paying attention. And just a quick FYI: The Facebook reposter was from the Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. So then, putting their stamp of approval on this…whatever it is, should shine a light on the insanity of OROCRC.
Enjoy: “I am dismayed by the lack of insight conveyed by the Friday letter “Abortion ends hope for future students” from John E. Evans. Pregnancies are ended precisely because the resulting children will likely not be the “scholars, athletes, inventors” so blithely and naively envisioned in that letter.
“Would-be parents lovingly hand their precious unborns back to the universe because we know or fear that their bodies are malformed, drug-addled, malnourished or endangered. We hand our unborns back in order to protect them from lives of poverty, violence or unlove.
“We trust that we will be guided to the proper solutions for our children, whether that means allowing their births or allowing them to return to the Divine. We trust that they will be cared for either way. And we trust that we will be sent “nothing but angels” to skillfully and compassionately assist in either course. This we have been promised in scripture.
“In the United States, these rights to trust and to hand back our unborns is protected by law. But now, just because a human like Evans has made up a vision of healthy tots skipping off to safe schools with shoes, lunches, backpacks and love notes, we should suddenly trust him instead? Not gonna happen. Nor should it ever.
“To those who would interfere with parents’ rights to give their unborn children up to universal care: Your efforts to force births are abusive to all of us and especially to the unborn. Your efforts are arrogant, illegal, immoral and extremely un-Christian.” [Martha Sanders, Columbus] Read it here.
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! The rebuttal, classic: “I was stunned to read the Tuesday letter “Forcing births is abusive to all, including the unborn” from Martha Sanders, which disingenuously rationalized abortion. Her benign, pastoral, Christian-mocking argument that a woman loves her unborn so much that she wants to return it to God to protect it from being “malformed, malnourished or endangered in life” by sucking it out through a surgical soda straw is not just thinly veiled conscience-quelling claptrap, it reads like the motivational line for a Hollywood hospital-movie serial killer: “And that’s why unbalanced Nurse Cruella secretly murders all those babies in the neonatal ICU.”
“In addition, if her argument of “protecting those from possible poverty, violence and unlovedness” by killing them applies to the unborn, why can’t that be the T-shirt slogan for execution squads roaming the streets hunting the homeless? Doesn’t every soul deserve to live life and not be snuffed out for someone else’s preference or convenience.” [Robert Perdue, New Albany] Read it here.
Being an Ordained Minister, this…whatever it is, is not of God NOR of Christianity. I would make an educated guess that this Martha person is probably part of a cult or aspiring to be.
At any rate, thanks to Robert of New Albany for his great response, pray for Martha.
If you are, at all, a well rounded Christian, you KNOW that both anti-abortion activism and prolife ministry are timely. LIFE is the message of the hour. Without LIFE, there is nothing. Loving your neighbor means even the smallest and most vulnerable who can never say ‘thank you’. Hiding behind credentials and a pulpit does not exempt you from your duty to be Pastor to ALL.
Prolife street ministry is our last defense for the unborn who are within the reach of the abortionist. Give them the Gospel, give them hope, give them LIFE, stand fast in the FAITH, love them both.
“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you…..Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” [Matthew 5:44, 48].
Love them both, protect them both. Stand in the gap.
EXPOSING THE ABORTION AGENDA FROM THE PULPIT, ON THE SIDEWALK, THE MEDIA & IN THE STATEHOUSE: “Once I realized that my abortion was a tragedy and not an accomplishment, I was able to discern correctly that abortion is, indeed, MURDER.” ~ Rev. Kat, post-abortive minister, counselor, AMERICAN.
YOU can contribute to KeepLifeLegal by simply going to the sidewalk, praying, voting for and supporting anti-abortion candidates.
#fillthebooties is a personal initiative and ministry to literally do exactly that, fill the booties. Even after losing my babies, I never put my hook and yarn completely away. I set it aside for awhile, but never lost hope that what little I can do for an unplanned little one will be a hand extended with love, hope and Jesus.
