David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress again find themselves the targets of leftist persecution. By exposing the wickedness of Planned Parenthood and seeking to defend and protect babies, Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress has transgressed leftist ethics. For progressivism, righteousness is of no concern when it threatens the leftist agenda, and those who righteously challenge that agenda must be punished and silenced. Make no mistake, just because Daleiden doesn’t have to worry about being used as a human torch to illuminate Nero’s orgies, that doesn’t mean that he and his organization aren’t being persecuted for the sake of righteousness.
In case you haven’t heard, the State Attorney’s Office of California has issued an arrest warrant and charged David Daleiden with fifteen felony counts related to the release of the Planned Parenthood undercover videos (you can read about those counts here). The videos confirmed what many of us already knew, Planned Parenthood is a great evil that sacrifices children on the altars of greed and sexual freedom. The murder of babies is a stench in the nostrils of the Creator of the Universe who has commanded us to care for the oppressed and the least among us. As a reward for seeking to bring an end to the murder of babies, David Daleiden is being slandered and faces the possibility of losing his freedom.
Jesus told us that his followers would be hated and suffer persecution, so none of this should surprise us. That reality doesn’t mean that we should sit idly by and simply bemoan the lot of our brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering persecution. Christians are commanded to enter into the sufferings and trials of each other and we’re also commanded to pray for each other. To that end, I encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ to pray for grace and strengthened faith for Daleiden and those who he works with at the Center for Medical Progress, as well as ask our Heavenly Father to work and knock down the walls of Jericho. Furthermore, I encourage you to contact your Senator and Congressperson and ask that they help in the cause for justice and righteousness. After all, God is often pleased to use ordinary means to knock down the 21st century’s walls of Jericho.
If you are unsure about the righteousness of David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress’ cause, I’ve linked to an article below in which you can confront yourself with the monstrosity that is Planned Parenthood and the baby murdering industry, otherwise known as “abortion.” I encourage you to read the article, and prayerfully weep over the great sin of our society. Planned Parenthood and those who profit from the murder of babies may seem to prosper for a season, but God sits in the heavens and laughs at their rebellion. God will not be mocked, and He is returning one day to heap His righteous and just wrath on the heads of those who rebel against Him.
