From the Pastor: A link between the Zika virus and abortion
Everybody now knows that the world is coming to an end due to the Zika virus. Like so many other “apocalyptic epidemics” we have been hysterically warned about by our ever more facts-be-damned news outlets as they compete with each other by screaming “the sky is falling” over everything except that which truly makes the sky fall, this one also came upon us seemingly out of the blue. Amazingly, no news organization seems to have ever heard of or reported on the Zika virus until three weeks ago. Then it simply appeared out of nowhere and is now the lead story everywhere, all the time. This terrifying virus is going to cause the collapse of civilization unless we pour bajillions of dollars into it RIGHT NOW and quit traveling outside of US borders. The CDC reports that the actual illness caused by the virus is generally so mild that 4 out of 5 people will not even know they have been attacked by this monstrous invader. So why has the World Health Organization declared the Zika virus an international public health emergency? Because it may cause birth defects in unborn babies. Yes, the same organizations which refuse to call a baby in the womb a baby whenever abortion is the topic, now have no problem at all saying the baby is actually a baby. The same reporters who shill for the pro-death political party and its minions, who never met a pro-abortion politician or cause they couldn’t support, who portray even late-term abortion butchers in the best light possible, who never cover the March for Life except if showing six protesters as if they outnumber, out-think and out-love the hundreds of thousands of prayerful pro-life marchers, who refuse to even use the term “pro-life” for those who are pro-life or the term “pro-death” for those who are pro-death, etc., now portray a pregnant woman who decides to continue with her flight to the Caribbean as a terrible mother because she is endangering her unborn baby. That “clump of cells” or “glob of tissue” that can be ripped apart limb from limb as an abortion while the mother is praised for doing the most “loving” thing possible, is somehow now, without a hint of recognized irony, portrayed as an endangered baby because the mother might not wear enough mosquito repellant.
Let me be as clear as I possibly can be: Nobody who supports abortion in any way, shape or form, has any logical claim to be worried about birth defects being caused by the Zika virus or any other virus, or by the use of drugs by the pregnant mother, or by any other in-utero means! Either the “fetus” IS a human baby and therefore should not be tortured and murdered through abortion or it isn’t. If the “fetus” is NOT a human baby, then there is no way possible for “it” to have anything to do with a baby born with birth defects. That baby born with birth defects, according to the logic of abortion supporters, just magically appeared outside the mother’s womb fully formed (or deformed). It was absolutely not, could not possibly be, no way, no how, inside the mother when the Zika carrying mosquito infected her, since the only thing inside her was simply a “fetus” and not a “baby.” For our president, the most pro-abortion president in our history, to now, in a self-aggrandizingly disgusting way, claim to “care” about the very same “whatever-it-is” that is “anything-but-a-baby-human” to the extent that he wants to spend millions or even billions of dollars to contain the Zika virus--while at the same time spending millions or even billions of dollars to kill the same baby humans whom he claims to be saving by seeking to control the Zika virus--shows just how demonically demented abortion pushers truly are. Only demons can cloud a mind and a soul to the extent that those who accept abortion have had theirs clouded.
And then there is the outcry about the Doritos Superbowl commercial. A real baby, named Freddie, had his sonogram computerized to show him moving back and forth following a Doritos chip being held by his dad, and then followed the chip out of the womb (he was born rather quickly!) when his mother, exasperated with the father’s playing with the baby as he watched the sonogram, tossed the chip across the room. NARAL and its ilk got bent out of shape because Doritos “humanized” the baby, making “it” look like a real baby human instead of a “fetus”. The facts that it was a real sonogram of a real baby human (who has since been really born) and that real baby humans really look like real baby humans in real sonograms of real baby humans, had no effect on the demonically induced cloud of moral darkness of those in the business of murdering baby humans. God help us!
