We've prayed for the abortion doctors, nurses, and other clinic workers. Let's also pray for the Nancy Northrups, Cecile Richards, and Ilyse Hogues of the world.* These are leaders of some of the most powerful pro-abortion groups in America. They're backed by many thinkers and writers . . . too many to mention.
Salon writer Mary Elizabeth Williams is one of them. She recently put her name to, "So what if abortion ends life?" in which she admits abortion kills a human being and that she doesn't care. She's unfortunately not alone. Here's a summary of what other abortion activists have said or written in the past.
Rather than repenting in shame, they imagine they're upholding freedom. Religious abortion advocates give them cover, as noted yesterday. They don't know they're spiritually blind and peddling spiritual bondage.
Remember, the battle over abortion isn't just political or philosophical. It isn't an argument over semantics. "Freedom of choice" is a spiritual problem. Sadly, this worldview doesn't just affect the influencers; it's sways young hearts and minds. Only the grace of God will turn hearts. Pray!
*Nancy Northrup is the president and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights; Cecile Richards is the president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America; Ilyse Hogue is the new president of NARAL Pro-Choice America.
