I thought I’d seen it all, the other day, when I viewed a TV commercial entitled “Happy Anniversary, Baby.” In it, some black guy with a shaved head sits with a long-stemmed rose and a glass of wine, chattering romantically to someone or something offstage about “our anniversary.”
What’s he celebrating? I never would have guessed it. The 4oth anniversary of Roe v. Wade, of course–which made abortion “legal” without benefit of any legislation, and has since led to the slaughter of over 50 million American babies.
Even gaudier than the evil of this ad is its sheer, incredible stupidity. Hey, Mr. Black Actor with the shaved head! Don’t you know that African-American babies are aborted at a rate several times that of any other group? Don’t you know that last year, about 50% of the black babies conceived in New York were aborted? Don’t you know that one of the stated purposes of Planned Parenthood, when it was founded by Margaret Sanger, was to rid the world of the “Negro” race? Go and look it up, you idiot!
But today, again in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I read something even worse.
Did you know–I didn’t!–that a bunch of moral imbeciles masquerading as ordained clergy have gotten together to form the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice? “Reproductive Choice,” of course, means abortion. So it’s really Liberal Pseudo-Christians for Abortion. And here is a quote from a pair of United Methodist ministerettes speaking for the Coalition in celebration of Roe v. Wade:
“We seek to be a voice crying out to prepare the way for the Lord to bring about a new era of reproductive justice for our families and communities.”
“Reproductive justice” means abortion. So they are asking Jesus Christ, who loved little children, to bless the massacre of the unborn. Blasphemy.
Just for the record, the UMC objects to the pair going beyond the denomination’s “nuanced stand” on abortion. Yes, we have found the nuance in “Thou shalt not kill.” The United Methodist Church is not on record for wanting to abort all babies. Just some of them.
Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin…
