On the Other Side of the Prolife Movement – Rescues, Civil Disobedience, Public Shaming & Network Memos

FIRST OF ALL: All this whining about ‘civil disobedience’ is actually about PUBLIC disobedience…of the new prolife movement, or the new sacred cow protected by mean girls on Facebook.

The sidewalk is owned by NO ONE. BUT if you’re a prolifer without a group and you approach the sidewalk, like a gunslinger in a western…you will quickly KNOW who OWNS the sidewalk. The New Prolife Movement doesn’t mind discouraging prolifers if they don’t bow to their ‘system’ in place. The First Amendment is a distant memory when you deal with the sacred cow of the new prolife movement. Typical symptoms are: Disengagement, then disenfranchised, and finally totally disarmed from our first love of saving lives, helping women, and preaching the Gospel. We have literally devoid ourselves of the truth of who we are and what we do as prolifers – the new sacred cow  professing only partial truths, throwing their weight around.

Who are we, what have we become, how did we get here?

GoliathChurchSignBeing followers rather than individuals has brought us where we are as a movement. We’ve allowed the tail to wag the dog, Jesus has left the building, and we are spent and empty. THEN THE RESCUE HAPPENED.

YES we needed a REFRESHING! And just like that, a reprise of the rescue movement breathed a huge needed breath of fresh air into a displaced expanse of VOID. Certain ‘prolife’ leaders have shamed the very thing that saves lives and makes sense, conveniently forgetting how they got here. Even worse, saying rescuing did not save lives.

Groups like 40 Days for Life, Sidewalk Advocates for Life, and And Then There Were None, Prolife Wife, have voiced their opinions of what ‘proper’ prolife counseling, etiquette and presence is. I dare say that the people one particular group chose to review and poll regarding ‘approaching’ abortion minded women does not make up the majority of post-abortive and pre-abortive women. It’s embarrassing, I mean seriously…polling abortion workers??? It was like asking speeders how they want to be pulled over. Long story short, THEY DON’T.

However, can’t say that the FB Live Q&A’s, conferences, fund raisers, and the eventual epic social media temper tantrums of the new sacred cow hasn’t been entertaining.

So, as for me and my house, and on the sidewalk, we will serve the LORD because He comes first – not second or third: “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,” [Acts 3:19]. Preach the Gospel. Read the Book of Acts and get ready! This new movement has forgotten it’s first love, Jesus.

The bratty mean girls of the prolife movement need to read their Bible, not Yelp reviews or Facebook comments. SO that being said, here is a ‘review’ of what rescues mean to a multiple abortive woman:

“I cannot even FATHOM what it would have been like to see the Calvary blocking the doors of the killing place or in the waiting room with a fragrant red rose and a loving heart. WHAT IF rescuers had been there for my post-abortive mom? Not only would I have my brother or sister, but also my own child that would be 39 this year. You dumped all over part of the movement that began it all, including YOUR group [I’m done calling your GROUP a ministry because there ain’t no evidence of Jesus being in it when you shame].” More in the video below.

Look, don’t want to rescue? THEN DON’T. Just don’t shame those who are putting their futures on the line to save unborn children. And just back off.

So THAT’S where the defining line is in the Prolife Movement…Got it.

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 IMG_20170909_113723_634.jpgGLORIOUS. 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.
