The Persecution of David Dalieden and Anti-Abortion Activists

by John Ellis

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.

Christians Are Called to Fight Against the Evil Called ‘Abortion’

by John Ellis

Forty-three years ago, this country sanctioned the murder of babies under the name of abortion. If that weren’t tragic enough, there are professing Christians who excuse this horrendous sin that is a stench in the nostrils of the Sovereign and Holy God of the universe. They defend the murder of babies with mealy-mouthed equivocations like, “Abortion is complicated, and overturning Roe v. Wade won’t end abortions; it will simply cause women to have abortions in back-alleys with coat hangers. It will make abortion dangerous.”

France, Abortion, and the Holocaust of People With Down Syndrome

Leftist friends frequently point to France as a shining, progressive light on the hill. My latest article details a recent way that France has illustrated the truth of the claim that the country is a beacon for progressivism.

Abortion and Hypocrisy

Abortion is either the murder of babies or it’s not; it can’t be a little bit of both. I do realize that our justice system has varying levels for categorizing the intentional killing of a person. Yes, the courts view first degree murder differently than third degree murder (voluntary man slaughter, which is generally crimes of passion). But, I’ve never heard anyone say, and I would bet lots of money that you haven’t either, “Look, if you must kill that person, don’t first degree murder them, third degree murder them.”

Intentionally killing someone is murder. Period. And it’s wrong. Period.[1]

According to many, however, abortion is an act that exists in the moral equivalent of a no-man’s land and is merely, at best, some sort of nuisance, or, at worst, a necessary evil that society would do well to phase out, but only, and I do mean only, after a litany of social ills are cured first. For those people, if you’re not willing to adopt an unwanted child or personally feed a village of single mothers, you better darn-well make sure that you don’t say boo about abortion. (Can I get an “amen” from Rachel Held Evans?) Well, if abortion isn’t the murder of babies, then I fail to see why it should be phased out or even discouraged in most cases[2]. If it is the murder of babies, then it’s a moral evil of such magnitude that society’s collective sins in other areas have no immediate bearing on its abolition.

Cecil the Lion vs Planned Parenthood

Is it an either/or?

by John Ellis

One of the few things I remember from my high school Civics class was taught to me on the morning of November 4, 1992. Walking into class as a seventeen year old boy, I was blind-sided by my teacher’s dismay and anger at the previous day’s Presidential election that was now turned on me and my friend. Our crime? We had supported Ross Perot for President. Our teacher accused us, two kids too young to vote, of secretly supporting President-elect Clinton and, by extension, hating America. In front of the class, we were subjected to a verbal dressing down that aligned us with the worst elements of society that a jingoistic Christian school teacher could imagine.

Planned Parenthood and the Confederate Flag

As a still relatively brand new Christian, the fall of 2008 and winter of 2009 proved an existentially tumultuous period for me. Two things stand out in my memory as flashpoints – voting for Obama in the presidential election and then, not long after the election, reading Woman of Valor: Margaret Sanger and the Birth Control Movement in America, a biography of Planned Parenthood’s founder.
