Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for defunding Planned Parenthood.
I’m all for picketing Planned Parenthood.
I’m all for (and enthusiastically participated in) last Saturday’s nationwide protest against Planned Parenthood (see: Picketing the Gates of Hell: The good, the bad, and the ugly.)…and the hopefully many more large and effective protests to come.
With that said, please allow me to make what seems to be a very important clarification: While I am happy to pursue and accept tactical victories like the defunding of mass baby murder enterprises and the closing down of baby butchering facilities, I am in no way content with those changes. They are not the objective. They are not the goal. They do not represent true and complete victories.
They are steps toward a goal. They are steps toward victory. They are encouraging mile markers along the way. They are important tactical steps to be taken and appreciated only in the context of pursuing greater strategic goals and victories. (See: The Joy (and Necessity) of Dismembering Planned Parenthood.)
They are suburbs to be taken and occupied en route to the enemy Capitol, if you get my meaning.
Like many Brothers and Sisters in arms for the cause of Christ through His Gospel-fueled Great Commission, I am quite pleased to see the defunding and dismemberment of Planned Parenthood begin to come into focus as a very practically and realistically attainable objective in the not-too-distant future. Even so, the mere defunding of this openly operating network of baby boy and girl mass murderers should in no way dissuade – or even slow for a second – our desire and active drive to see those who butchered (and continue butchering) the babies in question prosecuted as the cold blooded mass murderers that they are.
The Nature of God as revealed in His perfect, sufficient, reality-defining Word demands this.
If we love the Lord, if we love the lost, if we love Truth, and if we love the babies who have been and are being murdered even now in the name of All-American “freedom” and “We the People”-crafted “law”, we will not soft-pedal, water down, or avoid this vital (and beautiful) truth. We will clearly proclaim it. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to murder children. Repent accordingly.)
That’s what true love requires of us now.

So as we go about the process of fighting a very good and important fight for the discrediting, defunding, and destruction of Planned Parenthood, let us never forget to form our understanding of objectives (and the pursuit of those objectives) in accord with the Gospel and Great Commission. Let’s never forget to make plain to all that what we are dealing with here is mass murder…and mass murder involves murderers.
These people murder baby boys and girls.
That’s what they do.
And they must be brought to justice for this; they must be held accountable for the blood they have spilled (and are spilling even now as I type these words).
They must be prosecuted.
Defunding is not enough; not nearly enough…but it is a step that can and should be taken along the way to true and total justice.
The Nature of God as revealed in His Word makes this path plain. If we are to have a credible proclamation of the true Gospel, we must have consistent submission to and application of the Word of God. We can’t expect a watching world of unbelievers to be impressed with the Word of God that we claim as Lord with our lips if we play with that Word like a Lego set whenever it suits us, ignoring the pieces that we don’t like and using the ones that we do. (See: Limp Wristed Gospels Make Limp Wristed Cultures.)
Have we not seen enough of what such a Christ-mocking, Gospel-rejecting approach to law, liberty, and life produces? (See: Presuppositional Law: Where we begin with law determines where we end.)
Have we not seen enough to finally repent and fully repent to Christ as King in practice?
Let us pray and work here and now so that it might soon be so, all by His grace, all for His glory, and all to the benefit of His people…and the babies that will not be openly murdered for convenience and profit when perfect, loving His Word is the standard by which life, liberty, love and freedom are understood and applied.
