At Tuesday’s Capitol Rally in OKC, 800-1000 people gathered to call our legislators and governor to criminalize abortion as murder. I was able to join courageous men and woman including SB 13 Author Joseph Silk in delivering speeches to call for the Abolition of the child sacrifice of pre-born Oklahomans.
Here is the speech I delivered with extra language added:
“Never do you play God and intentionally take innocent life!
In the midst of Oklahoma’s holocaust, excuses why abortion shouldn’t be criminalized and abolished are no stranger.
It may come as a surprise that these excuses come not from those who champion the cold blooded murder of Oklahoma’s pre-born neighbors, but “pro-life” professing legislators and proponents.
One excuse, “Well, what in the case of rape?” Why would you murder the child for the crime of the father?
Ezekiel 18:20 tells us: “The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.”
To address another straw man often borrowed from promoters of child sacrifice, “What about in the extremely rare case of the life of the mother, such as an ectopic pregnancy?” If immediate danger is present, the child could be delivered early and the doctor do everything in their power to save the child. There have been many reports of successful ectopic pregnancies. Two obstetricians in New York, Drs. Hillman and Simon published details on 316 ectopic pregnancies resulting in live birth between 1809 and 1935, while only half of the children survived their first week, these births occurred long before NICU.
Former Surgeon General C. Everitt Koop said, “Protection of the life of the mother as an excuse for an abortion is a smoke screen. In my 36 years in pediatric surgery, I have never known of one instance where the child had to be aborted to save the mother’s life.”
Exceptions in statutes always lead to the death of a child. Any law which basically ends with “then you can kill the child” is a bad law. It flies in the face of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitutional provision in the 14th Amendment and God’s enduring command, “Thou shalt not murder.”
Do regulatory abortion measures, that supposed “pro-life” advocates promote, really protect life? Dr. James Dobson was once asked if partial birth abortion bans saved any babies. His response after pondering for a bit was “no.”
The reality is that the child will be murdered earlier on.
What does our God think about our middle-of-the-road regulations that do nothing but to insure another 5000 of our pre-born neighbors are butchered in Oklahoma?
Jesus says in Revelation 3:15-16: “I know all things that you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other, but since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot or cold, I will spit you out” There is no middle ground in Oklahoma’s holocaust. People often tell me “I’m pro-life, but…” You either embrace the culture of death or you don’t.
Please don’t be the person giving account before God someday saying “well, I opposed completely ending the murder of unborn children, but I supported efforts which supposedly saved some.”
Ladies and Gentlemen, the time for justice is always now. Let us implore our magistrates (legislators) and servants of God to interpose and rescue the 5000 children being led to the slaughter annually in Oklahoma.
Governor Kevin Stitt, Senator Greg Smalley, Pro Tempe Greg Treat, Speaker Charles McCall, Senators, and Representatives, it is incumbent upon you to do everything in your power to insure the passage of SB 13 which will criminalize abortion as murder and end the premeditated cold blooded murder of the most innocent among us.
Proverbs 24:11-12: Rescue those being led to death. Hold back those staggering to slaughter. If you say, ‘but we knew nothing about this,’ does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?””
