Church-Planter Nick Bogardus of Cross of Christ Church Interviews Seth Gruber on Abortion

Church-Planter Nick Bogardus of Cross of Christ Church Interviews Seth Gruber on Abortion

Last month, I had the opportunity to join church-planter and Pastor Nick Bogardus of Cross of Christ Church Orange County to discuss abortion on the church’s podcast! We discussed the history of Roe v. Wade, the current state of the pro-life movement under the Trump administration, and debunked 9 common pro-choice arguments and myths! Our conversation is now available to you on UnAborted!

We dealt with arguments such as “It’s just a fetus,” “It’s a woman’s body,” “Abortion is needed in cases of rape,” “Aborted children would have often grown up in challenging circumstances,” “Banning abortion will force women into dangerous back-alley abortion clinics,” and much more!

UnAborted - A Pro-Life Podcast Bringing You News From the Front Lines of the Movement

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the abortion juggernaut? Do you find yourself at a loss for words when your friends, family members, and co-workers are discussing abortion? Do you wish you could engage the issue of abortion both graciously and persuasively? Then, check out my new podcast show, UNABORTED!

My goal is to examine the abortion wars from a cultural, philosophical, and theological perspective and provide both moral and spiritual clarity for my listeners. This podcast is one of many important ways to expand the pro-life message, beliefs, and ideas to the American public.

Think of this show as your one-stop shop to get information, training, encouragement, and a bit of humor so you can go back out and be a voice for the unborn children in our midst!

Saying 'We Need Abortion Because of Rape' is Dishonest, Unjust, and Merciless

Saying 'We Need Abortion Because of Rape' is Dishonest, Unjust, and Merciless

As Alabama Governor Kay Ivey and Missouri Governor Mike Parsons pass pro-life legislation that says you can’t murder children conceived in rape or incest, the pro-choice movement has predictably been responding like this:

Three Reasons Why The 'Dangers of Illegal Abortions' Argument is Misleading, Deceptive, and Sexist

Three Reasons Why The 'Dangers of Illegal Abortions' Argument is Misleading, Deceptive, and Sexist

With the tidal wave of recent pro-life legislation coming from states like Missouri, Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Ohio, we have been hearing again all the ridiculous and repeatedly refuted pro-abortion arguments. Leading this fallacious charge is the argument that says, “abortion needs to remain legal because women will get them anyway, and criminalizing abortion will force women to obtain unsafe illegal abortions, and thousands will die like they did before Roe.”

Putting aside the fact that abortion is never safe because being killed is never safe, this argument makes several dangerous missteps in its reasoning. Assuming the crazed feticide apologists will have a rational conversation with you at all (a big assumption), here are the three reasons why this argument is misleading, deceptive, and sexist.

So You Care About Human Equality? Become Pro-Life

So You Care About Human Equality? Become Pro-Life

The pro-life position is the only position that accounts for human equality. If you care about protecting the value and dignity of ALL human beings, the pro-life position is your only option.

But are all humans even equal in value and dignity? This is a question as old as time itself, and it’s a question our country is currently divided over.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has publicly defended infanticide, the US Senate refuses to pass an anti-infanticide bill protecting babies born alive during botched abortions (thanks to Democrats), and every Democrat Senator running for president voted against protecting these babies.

The Intellectual Consistency of the Pro-Choice Worldview

The Intellectual Consistency of the Pro-Choice Worldview

On his campaign trail last week, former Texas representative Beto O'Rourke, was asked a bombshell of a question from what appears to be a student. This student carefully summarizes the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act by pointing out that the bill would have required babies who are born alive during failed abortions to be given the same level of medical care and attention aimed at saving their life, as any other baby born during a normal delivery.

Student: "Would you support this bill, that does not in any way limit abortion, it simply seeks to keep babies alive that have been born alive?"

Beto O'Rourke: "The way that I would approach your question and this issue generally is to trust women to make their own decisions about their own bodies."

Supporting Infanticide Disqualifies You From Public Office

Supporting Infanticide Disqualifies You From Public Office

Monday evening (02/25/19), the United States Senate voted in majority favor (53-44) of legislation that would protect the lives of babies born-alive during a failed abortion procedure. Shockingly, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act didn’t gain the 60 votes necessary to overcome the filibuster initiated by Democrat senators.

This proposed legislation came on the heels of the firestorm surrounding Virginia Governor Ralph Northam who publicly defended Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran's bill that would legalize abortion to point of birth. Northam went a step further though, saying that mothers and physicians should be able to have conversations about whether babies born-alive during botched abortions should be left to die or not. This is infanticide. The silence from the Democratic party following Kathy Tran’s proposed legislation and Northam’s public comments on infanticide has been deafening.

President Trump's State of the Union Address Drew a Stark Line Between Parties

President Trump's State of the Union Address Drew a Stark Line Between Parties

There was a time when the Republican and the Democratic party agreed on many of the same things. It used to be that Republicans and Democrats agreed that there were only two genders, that socialism was inherently evil, that religious people should be allowed to live out their faith and values free from government discrimination, and that a nation should guard its borders. And yes, there was even a time when Republicans and Democrats were both opposed to abortion. In fact, early feminists and suffragettes were anti-abortion! Naturally, the Democratic party has never explained why they changed their beliefs and position from having many anti-abortion Democrats serving in Congress and the Senate prior to 1973 to ostracizing any and all pro-life Democrats. 

Are Racist Costumes Worse Than Infanticide?

Are Racist Costumes Worse Than Infanticide?

Over the weekend, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam was thrown back into the limelight over a photo that surfaced from a page dedicated to him in his medical school yearbook. The photo shows two men standing side-by-side; one dressed in blackface and the other dressed in a KKK outfit. On Friday, February 1st, Northam confessed he was one of the men in the photo and issued a public apology. However, less than 24 hours later, Northam rescinded his apology by stating that he was not either of the men in the photo and that he has no idea how that photo ended up on his yearbook page.

Naturally, countless Democrats are calling for Northam's resignation as Governor of Virginia. So the party that used to support slavery and racism is calling for the resignation of Northam over a school yearbook photo of him dressed in blackface. 

9 Thoughts on the Use of Graphic Abortion Imagery

9 Thoughts on the Use of Graphic Abortion Imagery

Regarding the use of graphic, disturbing abortion imagery; many pro-life advocates oppose the use of such imagery by arguing that it's too offensive, too graphic, too disturbing, and too triggering for post-abortive women. 

As a proponent of the strategic use of such visuals, I would like to offer 9 brief thoughts on why the use of such visuals is not just justified, but required if we are to maximize our effectiveness in changing minds and saving lives.
