April 11 (J)…Juxtaposition of Life and Death

The providence of God’s perfect timing never ceases to amaze me. Today is beautiful example that, yet again, as I ruminate on what to write for letter J of my A-Z Blogging Challenge, the perfect things drops in my lap. Many thanks to Dr. Mike Adams for posting this on Facebook, as it is a stellar example of juxtapositional irony.

I believe that we should pray…for those who seek abortions, that their hearts would be changed.
I believe that we should pray…for abortion providers, that their hearts would be changed also.
I believe that we should pray…for the adoption option, that this choice would be made instead, and lives would be saved.

I believe in the inherent holiness of human life.


Planned Parenthood Sets Up 40 Days of Prayer for Abortion

A local Planned Parenthood abortion business in California is copycatting the 40 Days for Life campaign, which recently resulted in saving the lives of more than 700 unborn children from abortion. The abortion business has set up its own 40 Days of Prayer for the local abortion center.

“We trust you to decide about your sexuality, having your children, and planning your family,” says a flier promoting the Humbolt County Clergy for Choice event. “We are religious leaders who value all human life. We accept that religions differ about when life begins. We are here to help.”

“We believe that human life is holy. That’s why we believe in your right to choose to be a parent or not,” the pro-abortion religious leaders continue. “It can be helpful to talk with friends you trust, with licensed counselors, and with whatever religious person you choose. Humboldt County Clergy are available to talk with you about the spiritual aspects of choice. Find out more by calling Six Rivers Planned Parenthood.”

“Humboldt County Clergy for Choice invite you to set aside time with your family and community to support women and reproductive justice for 40 days from March 18th through April 27th,” they say.

The flyer promotes specific prayers for abortion for each day:

* “Day 1: Today we pray for women for whom pregnancy is not good news, that they know they have choices.”

* “Day 34: Today we give thanks for abortion escorts who guide women safely through hostile gauntlets of protestors.”

*”Day 36 Today we pray for the families we’ve chosen, May they know the blessing of choice.”

* “Day 38: Today we pray for a cloud of gentleness to surround every abortion facility. May everyone feel calm and loving.”

* “Day 40: Today we give thanks and celebrate that abortion is still safe and legal.”

Some of the local “churches” participating in the pro-abortion prayer event include: Temple Beth El in Eureka, Humboldt Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Bayside, St. Francis in Fortuna, Old Town Gazebo in Eureka, and Arcata United Methodist.

    • You can count my husband and me among them. We just received our application in the mail today, and it will begin our second attempt to adopt. Hoping and praying that this brings us a sibling for our (bio) son.

  1. I truly think they are sincere, but I truly think they are messed up. And if they are faithful in their 40 days of prayer that’s sadly much more than what I have done for my pro-life convictions lately. I hope I’m more diligent for this cause and for your adoption process…excited for you!
