Some Movies w/ Pro Abort Message

I recently watched a couple of movies I had been sort of avoiding because I had heard they had pro-abortion themes in them. The first and most odious was “Grandma”. Wow, this movie was just horrible on so many levels. The most disgusting aspect was the main character, Grandma, played by long time lesbian Lily Tomlin. In real life she’s not a mother, nor a grandmother. But in real life she’s also clearly on the side of promoting abortion. I won’t go into the whole plot, or lack thereof, other than to say “Grandma” is helping her granddaughter to raise enough money to get an abortion. They go through various schemes, meeting with “Grandma’s” old friends and lovers. And sadly end the end they raised enough money to get the young girl the abortion. This movie dramatizes what is happening in real life in our culture today. Imagine, there must be many grandparents out there who were all rooting for feminism, women’s rights, ERA, and abortion on demand back in the 1960’s and early 70’s. And those so-called pioneers have passed this death culture down for a few generations already. I am praying these elders will have their eyes opened and be able before they meet their Eternity, to Repent for the lies they have propagated to their children, and children’s children, if they were lucky enough to be born.

The second movie I saw recently I rented from my local library. It was “Revolutionary Road” starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio. This story took place in the setting of the “oh so repressive” 1950’s New York. The two meet and marry. She’s an artistic type who enjoys acting and had wanted to be a Broadway actress. He was a veteran of WWII, who eventually gets into a desk job at a marketing firm. But all alone they feel like the are too cool for the life they have settled into, living in the suburbs with two young children. The wife suggests they get out of their doldrums by moving to Paris. He was there during the war. Long story short, there is adultery on both parts. The plan to move to Paris is foiled when she discovers she is pregnant with their third child. She is distraught and he is disappointed. She tells him she can “take care of the situation” just as long as it’s before 12 weeks. He, at first seemed somewhat interested, but eventually he’s offered a promotion at work and encourages her to have their child and shames her for her immaturity and selfishness in even thinking of aborting her own child. She feels trapped in her life, her marriage, and in suburbia feeling she’ll never live her dream. So after making “nice nice” with her husband with a lovely breakfast she waves him off to the city and politely goes upstairs to the bathroom to give herself an abortion. She comes back down the stairs solemnly and much blood starts dripping from her skirt and onto the floor. She’s rushed to the hospital where she dies by bleeding to death. This story does a couple of things: It puts down traditional family and married life as old timey and boring. And secondly it not-so-subtly promotes our “need” for abortion on demand. After all if the U.S. had not passed Roe V. Wade in 1973 making it legal to kill the preborn up til 20 weeks then a woman might have to try to perform her “own homemade abortion” or worse go to a back alley doctor for a coat hanger abortion! Revolutionary Road was total pro-abortion Propaganda.

Both above films receive thumbs down and rotten tomatoes from me.

Why ask forgiveness for a medical procedure?

Do I need to be forgiven for having a gall stone removed? No, that’s not what I mean….

In the past 37 years since abortion became legal nationally due to the Roe V. Wade decision, over 50 Million unborn babies have had their lives snuffed out.

As much as we who are ProLife think about those precious innocent babies.  Do we stop to really think about those women who lost those babies due to abortion?

In abortion there are two victims. One is left living (usually) and the other is left dead. But the mother, who must go on living with the knowledge that she chose to terminate the life of her own child is often tortured. And many don’t realize they have committed a sin. Our culture has called abortion a “Medical Procedure”.  The truth is that abortion is a Killing.  The killing is not just of the unborn child within the womb. Other deaths take place. Often the death of the spirit of that woman takes place. She is so wounded by the abortion experience that her life is altered forever.

Women need healing and hope after an abortion. But due to the pain, shame, and guilt, most women may keep their abortion(s) a secret.  They hold in the pain. The pain does come out in many ways, however. These women often lose their relationship with the father of the baby that was aborted. They then may go on to have serial relationships which are unhealthy or even abusive, since often low self-esteem results from an abortion. Other women may turn to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. And others yet may harden their hearts and conscience and try going on like nothing happened.

The women have been lied to and duped by this culture of death. They are suffering and many don’t know where to turn for relief.

As a woman who has gone the through the torture of abortion personally, I can tell you there is only one place or really one person to turn to that is JESUS.  He is the only one capable of taking away from you the sin of abortion. You see, when a woman makes the choice to kill, she has the blood of her unborn baby on her hands. That is innocent blood. So you see that is why you feel so badly. It’s why you need to drink, or do drugs, or have relationships, or sex to try to brush away that guilty stain on your heart and mind.

You cannot do it.  Jesus can. He died a horrible death on a Roman Cross to take upon Himself the responsibility for what you have done. Can you believe it? Many cannot.  It sounds too simple, right? Or maybe it sounds too good to be true? Or maybe it sounds like a Religion? Rationalizations can be innumerable. But Jesus is none of those things. He is a person. He is the Savior of you, if you will only call out with a mustard seed (tiny bit) of belief in Him, then He will show himself to you, personally. You can ask him for forgiveness. You need to ask. It is called Repentence. We cannot and will not be forgive unless we ask for it. That is the Free Will that God put in each of us.  He forgave me. He will do it for you-when you choose to ask Him.

The only way Jesus will not come and cleanse and forgive you is if you are unwilling.  Some are too proud. Some are too smart or educated. Some believe there are many paths to God or heaven. Some think they are “good” people. Some just push the pain away and believe they did nothing wrong, it was a blob of tissue;just a medical procedure.  You know in your heart of hearts it was so much more.

I am so grateful that Jesus loved me so much that he drew me to himself with his great Love.  He does that. He draws people through his Goodness and Mercy.

In  our culture if someone commits a homicide. Lets say goes up to someone and shoots them with a gun. That person is guilty of murder, and is punished. Yet our culture legalized, condones and even promotes murdering the most helpless of all.  And the only punishment for the doctors and women is perhaps a guilty conscience, if that.

I hope you will think about what I have said. Let it really sink in to your heart and mind. Maybe you are a person of another religion. Maybe you don’t believe in God’s existence. Or maybe you believe in many paths of righteousness that can lead to “God” as you see Him or Her or It.

Whatever the case may be in your personal life. All you need to do is sit on your bed and sincerely (verbally or silently) say “Jesus, if you are real, as others believe. Then please show yourself to me. ” He will begin in perhaps subtle ways to draw you. You will see His faithfulness. Open your heart and you will see.

It may sound silly, but again, it’s the mustard seed of faith.  And He hears you when you call. He loves you. He created you. He knew you before your were born and even before this earth was created.

He wants to make your life whole again. He wants you to know His Great Love and Forgiveness. We all need forgiveness because none of us has lived a perfect life. And we cannot be good enough to earn it. It is through His sacrifice that we can make it here in this life and most importantly to Eternity with Him in Heaven.  And you definitely want to end up in Heaven because that is where your baby is, with Jesus. The innocent are gathered around the Father’s throne in heaven. If you choose Christ you will be reunited with your aborted (unborn) child.

May His Holy Spirit touch you now, that you Believe.

In Jesus Name.
