Jump ahead to the New Testament. In Luke 1, it says that when Elizabeth, who was pregnant with John the Baptist, and Mary, who was pregnant with Jesus, met together: “As soon as the sound of your [Mary’s] greeting, reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.”

Well, as the late Dr. D. James Kennedy once pointed out, clumps of tissue don’t leap for joy; babies leap for joy. And the Greek word that’s used there in that text is brephos, and brephos is the same word for baby, born or unborn.

But Planned Parenthood makes millions and millions of dollars killing the unborn. They share some of that money with politicians who do their bidding.

Though it is frequently ignored now, Planned Parenthood is a direct result of the eugenics (“good birth”) movement in America. Its founder, Margaret Sanger, believed in removing what she called “the dead weight of human waste.”

Dr. George Grant, author of the classic book, Grand Illusions: The Legacy of Planned Parenthood, observes: “That’s why Margaret Sanger would say, things like: ‘Our purpose is to raise up a new race of thoroughbreds.’ She talked about eliminating ‘human weeds.’”

So when people invoke God’s blessing for the destruction of unborn babies---even if they hold the highest office in the land (or the world?)---whatever god they may be speaking of, it’s certainly not the God of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures.
