An Opportunity to Join in the Fight Against Abortion

assist preg centerby John Ellis

In 2015, the most recent year for which the CDC has made the data available, at least 638,169 legal abortions took place in this country. I write “at least,” because only 49 of the 51 reporting areas (50 states plus D.C.) provided information to the CDC. To be sure, it would be tragic no matter the number of babies still living in their mother’s womb who were killed. Over 600,000 a year, though, is a genocidal travesty that should cause all of us to gasp in horror.

Christians and Coming Out Redux

by John Ellis

When I wrote “Christians and Coming Out” a little over four years ago, I was writing for a music website and the main thrust of my writing was in a different direction than it is today. Writing and publishing it, though, had a greater impact on my writing (and life) than I realized it would at the time. It ended up being one of those things where I wrote words but without any real understanding of those words import until after the fact. That worked out in two main ways that ultimately converged.

With the advances in ultrasound technology, especially the development of 3D ultrasound, pro-abortion advocates have changed tactics. It’s become next to impossible to convince people that a fetus isn’t a human life. For many who are pro-abortion, the argument now centers on personhood. Building on Judith Jarvis Thomson’s landmark paper “A Defense of Abortion,” the argument states that a fetus’ right to life is subservient to a woman’s right to choose.

“How do we know the skulls are empty?”

That gruesome question is asked by Assistant District Attorney Alexis McGuire, played by Sarah Jane Morris, as she stares at a row of dead babies. Whether or not the “skulls are empty” is a vital piece of evidence she needs to help build her case against Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor accused of murder, among a litany of other crimes. That question also represents the contrast between humanity (life) and evil (death) portrayed in Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer.

Time to restart this series that I blatantly stole from Tim Challies. To be fair, Challies didn’t invent the idea of aggregate sites and posts (maybe he did, I don’t know, I didn’t research it). Regardless, when I was posting these over a year ago, people seemed to like ’em. So, I’ll give it another shot.

Below are links to blog posts and articles from the past week that I’ve found interesting and/or edifying. The weekend is coming, maybe you’ll find some reading material among the links.
