Nothing Changes

NEWS FLASH:  Planned Parenthood has announced that they will no longer sell the body parts of the babies they kill. Instead of selling the body parts, they will donate them.  In the minds of Cecile Richards and the pro-abortion crowd this is a monumental policy shift and an altruistic move to correct an egregious practice.  What they don’t seem to understand is that the body parts they will now donate instead of sell, still come from the dead bodies of the babies they kill.  So nothing changes.  Entering a Planned Parenthood clinic is still the leading cause of death for unborn children in America.

Trying to justify the logic of killing babies so you can harvest tissue from their bodies for medical research makes no sense.  Killing another baby every 90 seconds is a multi-billion dollar business for Planned Parenthood.  Donating the body parts of dead babies is nothing more than a perverse PR move on the part Planned Parenthood in an attempt to recover what they feel is an image of legitimacy as a health care provider.  When Planned Parenthood stops killing babies and focuses on health care they will become legitimate.  Until then, they’re nothing more than an abortion mill that also provides some services that you can get at thousands of other providers.

No amount of cleverly worded statements can paint Planned Parenthood as anything but the evil organization it is. Nothing changes until they do.  Industries that rely on fetal tissue from dead babies are no better than the abortion mills that kill children so they can supply the tissue.  Am I missing something in a business plan that relies on human beings being killed so research can be conducted to possibly save human beings?  Abortion will end when the demand for it ends.  The same fate awaits the cottage industries that thrive due to the pain and suffering of unborn children.

Nothing changes in America until attitudes change on the sanctity of every human life.  Expressing outrage over videos of Planned Parenthood bargaining over the price of dead baby parts means nothing if the we don’t address the practice that supplies the dead baby parts.  Nothing changes in a society that allows unborn children to be killed by the millions until we stop allowing unborn children to be killed by the millions.

We tend to live our lives in blissful ignorance; many of us knowing that thousands of unborn children are killed every day in America, and most of us choosing to do nothing to stop it.  Einstein said “Nothing happens until something moves.”  I’ll take it a step further in saying nothing changes until we do.



Positive Outcomes

So far, over the course of my life, no matter how badly I’ve screwed things up it always seems to work out for me.  A few years ago I decided to leave the industry that I had made a very good living at for over 30 years to take a crack at a totally different career path.  I failed miserably and was fired 5 months later.  Within a day of being fired I was receiving unsolicited job offers, and a week later was working again in the industry I had voluntarily left, for more money than I had ever made. Looking back, it’s always been that way for me.  Fall down, get back up, end up stronger.

Trying not to take anything too seriously seems to work for me; for everything except working to end abortion.  For most things in all our lives we can fail repeatedly and try again as many times as we want until we get it right.  When you’re trying to save lives, failure is not an option.  The only positive outcome in the fight for life is to save a life.  And the only positive outcome for an unborn child is the opportunity to fully express its universally unique life.  I truly believe that if you make every effort to do right, good things will follow.  And I absolutely believe that standing on the side of life is the right thing to do.

Positive thinking is a good thing, but positive outcomes are what really matters, and they will only be realized as a result of definable action and measurable results.  Einstein once said “Nothing happens until something moves.”  He was right.  You can sit around thinking about what you want to do and the goals you want to achieve, but until you get off your ass and make it happen, nothing will.

A little over 2 years ago when I was called to end abortion I vowed that I would not leave this world without saving more lives than I could ever imagine I could.   Every family has at least one member that the others consider weird, eccentric, or just a little off.  I’m that guy in my family.  I’m really not sure what my closest friends and family members think about my pro-life views; whether I’m an embarrassment or whether they are proud of me. I would prefer the latter, but what I am doing is much more important to me than the good opinion of others; even my family.

Amid all the suffering and death that occurs daily in America’s abortion mills, I see a positive outcome.  I see a world in the not too distant future where the doors of every abortion mill are locked shut for the last time.  Whether my efforts or the efforts of someone else helps bring an end to abortion makes no difference to me.  A positive outcome, the safety of every unborn child is all that matters.
